--Sharing our Saviour Yahushua the Messiah to the World!--

 

-Please Read this 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 Rome.” Occasionally, we may also use other Hebrew or Greek names as well as different words in our studies for certain common words used are from pagan backgrounds and thus are not suitable. All names will be translated when they are FIRST used in a study or at various times as needed for clarity. There is a full explanation of YHVH’s blessed “Memorial Name” as well as the wonderful blessed Name of our Messiah and Saviour, thus please read …The Memorial Name.”

The three levels of learning & understanding of the blessed Word of YaHVaH Elohim (the Lord God):

When we read and study the blessed Scriptures, the Word of YHVH Elohim as a believer in Yahushua the Messiah, we should keep the following three steps always in mind for they are a valuable guide and it will certainly provide us with guidance and illuminate the sheer beauty and the fullness of YHVH’s most blessed Word.

1. Who was YHVH Elohim, blessed be His sanctified Name, speaking to?

2. When was it said?

3. How was His Word understood at the time it was spoken/given?

I do believe that these three points are most relevant to our understanding of 1. What the Almighty is saying at the time – 2. As well as what it means to us today - and 3. Especially to you and me right now!

 

Dear reader, there will be some things that you will read in this study that may possibly sound shocking, for some will be good Christians and attend church each and every week and do this with a good and faithful heart, and I commend you for this and I am well aware that you are doing this with a pure heart!

But, something that we often do not realise is that we are very much born into a ready made world and many things and details have been woven into and laid down into the structure of society and, yes religion and faith long ago, thus so much has become the norm and most of it is just accepted. What I mean by this is the structures and details within, lets say the “Christian Faith”, I know that the world at large is an evil place and heading rapidly to destruction, and we praise and thank the Father and our loving Saviour when individuals are saved by the shed Blood of the Lamb of Elohim (God)! Most enter the protestant churches, whilst a small number will become part of the “Little Flock” of the faithful in Messiah Yahushua!

When I stated that we have been born in a ready made world and that when we come to think of the Redeemer, the precious Son of Elohim, the first name that comes to mind in general is “Jesus.” However, at the very top of this study, that is if you did read it, you will have read that His blessed Name was, is and will always be Yahushua, and did you know that this is the very same name as Joshua, whose name was also written in Greek as “Iesous,” yet for some strange reason, this great leader from the Tanach – Old Covenant, was given the name of Joshua that sounds so much like the original. Yet He Who was given “the Name above every name” ended up with what? Not just a foreign name that meant something rather unsavoury as it is based on another name, which I will fully explain later. You should understand that in the Gospel’s His blessed Name was written as “Yahushua” and never “Iesous” for that was done much later!

The question begs why did the Roman church do this great evil? And believe me it was, and I will prove it! And sadly this tradition has been handed down over the ages and I have been challenged by the Sanctified (Holy) Spirit to point out to you, for if you are reading this, then the Father has led you to this page and you are meant to be reading this, thus do not waste this opportunity! For, YaHVaH Elohim (the LORD God), blessed be His Sanctified Name, through His beloved Son is saying to you “Come out of Her.” Now let us turn to the Word and this study!

“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, ‘Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues’” Revelation 18:4 and Yirmyahu - Jeremiah. 50:8, 51:6 & 45.

It is in the “Little Flock”, that Elohim, blessed be He, has those He calls “My people,” for they walk the in the path of faith and acknowledge the Messiah by His true Name Yahushua, and they certainly do not uphold any of the evil Roman inspired pagan feasts and traditions, etc! From what we have seen happen throughout the world, the Almighty is calling others in the churches who have come to know about Him to “come out of her,” especially now, as we are approaching the eve of Elohim’s judgement on what is in reality the “apostate church.”

Remember when Lot was warned to come out of Sedom - Sodom before its destruction, and then later the Children of Israel were told to come away from Dathan’s tents. Then in 69 AD the faithful the mostly Judeans (Jews) in Messiah Yahushua, had to “come out” of Jerusalem, and they were separated to a safe place before the great destruction of the city and the temple took place.

The precious Word of YaHVaH Elohim (the Lord God) makes it quite clear that the time will come when those who are in the churches must detach themselves from what is in reality the Roman churches affiliation, and instead identify themselves with those who are part of the “Body in Messiah” that most closely conforms to YHVH Elohim’s ideal, in this evil and wicked world!

We are told “be not partakers” – have no fellowship with that which has gone away from the Word. But sadly beloved, much of the “church,” which has entered the pagan domain during the time of that sun worshipper Constantine, practices and teaches much of the Roman inspired traditions and that includes its festivals that go back thousands of years before our Lord was even born on the earth, yet, they made it fit to “Jesus” somehow and yet that is not even our Messiah and Saviour, but the name of a pagan god Zeus!, whom YHVH hates. He clearly commands us “be not partakers and …

“Come Out of Her” – “Become My People”

“Come out of her My people that you partake not of her sins and her plagues” Revelations 18:4.

This urgent admonition deserves some study and thought. Presented herein are the actions and identities of the personalities and conditions spoken of in this rather terse sentence. Careful reading of the verses before and after our text will contribute greatly to our understanding.

“And YHVH said unto Noach, ‘Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before Me in this generation.’” Bereshis - Genesis 7:1 - KJV.

“And the men (angels) said unto Lot, ‘Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place.’” Bereshis - Genesis 19:12 - KJV.

From the account of Noach - Noah and that of Lot, the concept of “come out” or “depart” and escape before a coming judgement is clearly demonstrated.

Avram - Abram was called out and he was told to go to a land that YaHVaH would show Him, Although there was one condition and that was not to bring any of his family with him, except his wife and his own direct herds and workers, etc. Why? The Father desired to separate Avram (his name became Avraham only later) unto himself for a very special purpose. Sadly Avram did not obey YaHVaH Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, and allowed his nephew Lot and families to tag along. Then Lot became involved with a costly war and until today, the whole world is still paying for the sins of Lot and his daughters.

What were the conditions prevalent in those world systems that merited separation before the judgements came? Idolatry, sexual perversion, immorality, materialism, hedonism, and the “Sin of the Nicolatians.” We will now address these practices individually, although they are never singularly present in any culture.

Idolatry has many faces. It can be summed up as worshipping that which is made with human hands and ascribing to these objects glory that rightly belongs to our Heavenly Father and Creator. Many may have worshipped their new car, boat, house, or possibly deified some kind of sport, fashion, a preacher or a personality, or even a political party, which I believe is so wrong for there is NOT one good one and honourable one the earth, as each and every one has agenda’s that has evil undertones! But the point is that anything that becomes the focus of our time, affections and money is well on its way to becoming an idol and any kind of Idolatry is the delight of the evil one HaSatan, Satan) and it is his most effective tool. Idolatry is used most effectively to divert the eyes of mankind away from the YaHVaH Elohim and Messiah Yahushua!

Few of us are able to stay focused on anything for very long. Have you ever tried reading the Word of Elohim whilst watching TV? Russia and the USA tend to glory in their own power, their so-called strength, and its so-called great ability to solve the problems of the world. It comes to mind that ever since the Oslo “discordant” accords, everything the Nation of Israel attempts to do, she has done with little success. Israel’s military seems to have shot itself in the foot, so much so, that it is almost paralysed and has become as aimless as the Israeli government itself. Words cannot describe the rampant confusion, materialism, and hedonism that permeate every aspect of everyday activities of *Israel’s and the world’s secular society.

We now come to a vital sin, sexual perversion! The first social unit established by Elohim was the family. But sadly sexual sins and immorality constantly tears at its very fabric. The family unit has always served as the foundation of a wholesome society. Tragically, as we have seen, even more so in recent times, this is no longer the norm. Marriage is out of date and young men and women just go and live together, be it for a while and then change and get new partners, more often than not, these young women will have babies by one or more men, and this seems to be just normal these days, and mostly they tend to register as single mothers and thus they can claim huge payments from the Government, for these days, if you are sexually immoral, do not worry, your Government will support you, the father who has gotten you with child is not responsible, even though he may well be living with you! Indeed it is the “anything goes” society!

In our country (Australia) the government supports, believe it or not gay marriage and as we know well that in the eyes of Elohim homosexuality, lesbianism and bestiality are lumped together and are immediately punishable by death, no situational ethics or closet talk, just immediate elimination lest the whole of society be corrupted. Unbelievably there are a good number of preachers these days who openly state that gays are born that way and will not be judged for their lifestyle. These pastors as well as bishops from a wide range of churches never actually preach about judgement or eternal separation from Elohim. To think of it, how much preaching have you heard recently about personal responsibility, about sin and having to repent, being covered by the shed blood of the Lamb, etc? Sadly, you will hear “Come to Jesus, come, come.” But there will be very little “Repenting.”

Materialism and hedonism.” This is related to the “I want it all, and I want it now” attitude seems to reign throughout the world! Any individual, family, or society that lives by this ethic will become overweight and soon experiences moral bankruptcy. The millionaire always wants another million. The antique collector is always looking for another classic to rescue and add to his collection. The New Age follower has many gods and then, ultimately, declares themselves to be a god, as do certain Pastors do today. Then there is the so called “christian” who claims that “God gave me two hundred thousand dollars to set up a perfume business.” Man tends to seek after the things of self and fulfil their own selfish desires. When the bottom line of all bottom lines is finally drawn, it comes to this Scripture,

What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his own soul” Markus - Mark 8:36.

What is the soul of man really worth? Living a life according to the Word of Elohim, “running the race” toward everlasting life, or abandon theirs for almost nothing, much like Esau’s bowl of red bean soup. Self-centred human ego had great difficulty admitting its inability to direct itself without Elohim. His absolute distinction between right and wrong, promises of blessings or cursing have no place in their short-sighted concept of Him.

The sad truth is, most of us will devote more time packing for a weekend outing than we invest considering the ultimate trip. We spend our lives purchasing a ticket to somewhere and many will be surprised that there is no return or second chance. What did we pay for our ticket and what did we receive?

“It is appointed unto man once to die and after that the judgement” Hebrews 9:27.

Beloved, what have you done with the written and living Word of YaHVaH Elohim?

“Sin of the Nicolations”

You might ask, “What’s that?” This sin is mentioned only twice in the scriptures (Revelations 2:6 and 2:15).

“But this you have, that you hate the deeds (sins) of the Nicolatians, which I also hate” verse 6.

“Thus you also have those who hold the (sinful) doctrine of the Nicolatians, which thing I hate” verse 15.

When Elohim, through Messiah and an Angel, tells Yochanan – John that He hates something, we would be very wise to understand what that sin actually is, because we should be ready to enter into the presence of our Heavenly father without a single trace of this sin about our being. From the Strong’s concordance (word numbers 3531, 32, 33, and 34) we learn that these people originally came from a strong walled city in Greece where society, through religion, was highly organised with a hierarchy of religious priesthood. This priesthood lorded it over the people and had the power of life or death in the “here and now” as well as in the “hereafter.” They established rules, ways, and rituals, which were used to make them and their monarch seem as a god to their society.

In order to keep the people happy and easy to rule, their temples became the centre of wine, women, (or ‘men’) and song. Human sacrifice, usually of the firstborn, was also practised in much the same manner as Balaam worship, as Jezebel of Thyatira, had instituted. Nimrod, the mighty hunter of the bodies and souls of men, incurred the wrath of Elohim for saying, “Let us create a name for ourselves and a great walled city.”

Walls, just as religious dogmas and practices, are built by religions to keep people in and to be honest, they keep YHVH Elohim out. If we think of it, we might ask the question, “Would some of today’s Pastors allow Yochanan - John the Immerser (the Baptist), or Yahushua our Messiah actually preach in their churches?” I very much doubt it, for He would speak out against them!

Remember Yahushua said “call no man father (priest), you have only one, Elohim in heaven.” He also told his disciples to be careful to take in that, which men taught, because these teachers are forever responsible to Elohim for their every word and this author is also constantly prayerful regarding this!

Woe to him who keeps NOT My commandments and teaches the least of these so” Mattityahu (Matt) 5:19.

In Greece and throughout the world, there are shrines to Miriam (Mary) or some favourite saint on hilltops, or on roads leading into villages, also in front of churches and even in front of many private homes. These shrines range in size and ornate proportions according to the wealth of and religious fervour of those who built them “with their hands.” Religious Greeks will stop, kneel, worship, finger some beads, and make the sign of the cross whenever they come across these shrines.

Where did these traditions, rituals and observances, originate from? They can all be traced back to the ancient city of Babylon. The brightly robbed leader clutches some staff, icon, or symbol, and mumbles his “vain and repetitious words” and rules his flock. The bigger his cross and shrine the deeper men kneel, to obtain more brownie points fill their merit bag, as they enter into purgatory, paradise, heaven or what ever place is promised them. Sadly, for many, these religious leaders will not be at the heavenly boarding gate to check them in at the presence of YHVH, but have to endure eternal death as the Word is very clear on that subject, “For the wages of sin is death.” Romans 6:23.

Hoshea – Hosea describes how the House of Yehu - Jehu was destroyed for returning to the ways of Balaam and Ishtar. This sin was the Sin of Yarav'am - Jeroboam for which Elohim brought Syria against the ten northern tribes, which led to their dispersion. This event led to the so-called “The Ten Lost Tribe” theory, which is a hideous lie that remains with us to this day and mostly spread by the early British church. Read our “Who is Israel, has Elohim divorced them?” and the “British Israel” studies.

Those who desire eternal life, are admonished by YaHVaH, “to come out.” Why? For it to have great effect, the Coming Out will also be a Coming Into something. This is often referred to as becoming “Sanctified” or “Set apart” for a purpose. There is more to salvation than a simple insurance. Beloved, did you realise that we are to be set apart “unto service,” the very work which YaHVaH Elohim has prepared for us. To learn what this may be, and how to go about it, we must go directly to the Word. The Word will bring us to the realisation of what a terrible price has been paid for our redemption, and what our loving and obedient response to this great offer of “eternal life” should be.

Any study of the Nicolatians of Revelation is inseparable and incomplete without examining the Letters to the Seven Ecclesia’s. We should address these Ecclesia’s individually and learn of their strengths and weaknesses. Their conditions are found within the plethora of religions in today's world. As the writer of Ecclesiastics wisely observed:

“The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be, and that which is done, is that which shall be done, and there is no new thing under the sun” Qoheleth - Ecclesiastes 1:9.

Conclusion

This is a Word received by the author received on December 20, 1998.

“Tell My children, rid yourselves from the traditions of men, which has no place in your lives, traditions which I abhor.’"

And again on January1, 2000:

“I will bless those who heed My voice and repent. But those that continue to hold unto the traditions of men, I will not bless, nor will I know them.”

We are told “Be not partakers” therefore have NO fellowship with that which has gone away from the Word of Elohim. Sadly, as most of us are well aware, much of the greater church has entered a pagan domain with practices and teachings, which YaHVaH Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, detests and He will punish all those who will not repent and return again unto Him! Until they return, you cannot be “partakers” with them in fellowship with them in the same church although we are responsible to share the blessed Word of Truth!

Many will say, very much as I myself did for so long, “But by remaining in this, or that fellowship, we are being a witness for Elohim and His truth.” But beloved, the time has come that you must remove yourselves from those fellowships/churches, which hold onto “those pagan based traditions and theologies of man” in order “that you will receive not of her plagues.”

The Word makes it very clear indeed that Lot's wife could not let go of the city she had grown accustomed to and what happened to her … she did what? she looked (Hebrew said: “turned and went”) back” and therefore she was close enough to that evil and polluted city to be caught up in the horror and died. Therefore, beloved remove your selves from all that which is polluted!

Today Elohim is calling the faithful, that is the BRIDE of Yahushua to separate themselves unto Him and fellowship together according to the Word. It is time for the “Little Flock” to return to the Elohim of Avraham, Yitzchak - Isaac and Ya’akov - Jacob and live, worship and minister according to His ways, which has its foundations that were so clearly laid down in His Word!

It has been said to me, “but brother does that mean we have to become like Jewish believers and start a Messianic Fellowship?” My answer to that is, NO certainly not! The tragedy is that so many of those Messianic Fellowships are walking according to 1. “The pagan based traditions of man.” 2. Or are totally committed to the man-made Jewish traditions and fully uphold the Rabbinic Laws, which our blessed Saviour and the Apostles fought so hard against for they are erroneous, and I am not speaking about the Ten Commandments, being part of the Law of Moshe - Moses! Thus, why not become part of a small home style “Little Flock” fellowship in your area. And if there is not one set up as yet, well start one at home and allow the Father to build on your faith!

Fellowship. How and where do we find the perfect place to fellowship? The answer is simple, whenever we are with those who know the Name of YaHVaH Elohim and Yahushua THE Messiah we will be fellowshipping in perfect harmony! Until then, we must make every effort to please Elohim when coming together unto Him in the TRUTH of His Word! The main purpose of coming together unto Him is to please Elohim, and not just ourselves, for it must be a coming together wholly directed upon high, to our Creator, just as it was at the time of the Apostles, when all believers, be it those from out of Israel and the nations worshipped Elohim in the Name of Yahushua as ONE body, who upheld the Seventh Say Sabbath as well as the Feasts of YHVH as given in Vayikra – Leviticus chapter 23!

But, what should we look for in a fellowship and what should it teach and what should be its standards? Beloved in Yahushua, let the precious Word of Elohim be “a lamp to our feet and a light to your path” (Tehillim - Psalm 199:105). In the Word, we find all the requirements for the assembling of saints. It will radiate the love of Elohim. Yahushua said,

“All men will know that you are my disciples IF you love one another” Yochanan - John 13:35.

Obviously, love is paramount. “Whoever does not love does not know Elohim,” says Yochanan - John, “because Elohim is love” (I Yochanan – I John 4:8). “Dear friends,” he adds, “let us love one another, for love is of Elohim; and everyone who loves is born of Elohim and knows Elohim” (verse 7). Again, in verse 16 he says, “Elohim is love. Whoever lives in love lives in Elohim, and Elohim in him.”

In his great chapter of love, Shaul of Tarsus - Paul suggests that though a group claim to have Apostles, prophets, teachers, and even miracle workers, if it does not manifest love, it is no more than a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. Read I Corinthians 12:28 to 13:1. In other words, love expressed in kindness, graciousness, tolerance and compassion, and that is the most conspicuous sign of a fellowship right in Messiah.

“Praise YHVH! Praise Elohim in His sanctuary; praise Him in His mighty firmament! Praise Him for His mighty acts; praise Him according to His excellent greatness! Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet; praise Him with the lute and harp! Praise Him with the timbrel and dance; praise Him with stringed instruments and flutes! Praise Him with loud cymbals; praise Him with clashing cymbals! Let everything that has breath praise YHVH. Praise YHVH!” Tehillim - Psalm 150:1-6.

Uphold the Scriptures – the TRUTH of His Word!

“Then those who gladly received his word were baptised; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them. And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, eating together, and in prayer. Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles. Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common” Acts 2:41-44.

“You are my friends IF you do whatever I (Yahushua) command you” Yochanan - John 15:14.

“Elohim is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Yahushua the Messiah our Lord. Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Yahushua the Messiah, that you all speak the same thing and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgement” I Corinthians 1:9-10.

“This is the message which we have heard from Him (Elohim) and declare to you, that Elohim is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Yahushua the Messiah His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us” I Yochanan – I John 1:5-10.

“But I want you to know that the head of every man is the Messiah, the head of woman is man, and the head of Messiah is Elohim. Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered dishonours his head. But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonours her head, for that is one and the same as if her head were shaved (a prostitutes punishment)” I Corinthians 11:3-5 … Read the authors “Are you Covered?” for further revelation on this subject.

“Let a woman learn in silence with all submission. And I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, but to be in silence” I Timotheos - I Timothy 2:11-12.

It is obvious that YaHVaH our Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, desires you to “Come out” and then “come together” and worship Him in spirit and in TRUTH, according to His Word! Beloved if we can assist you in any way, be if in setting up a home fellowship, you are welcome email me.

Beloved, I pray that this work has challenged you in a special way. May it lead you into a closer walk with Elohim and Yahushua our loving Saviour!

“For YHVH takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the humble with salvation. Let the saints be joyful in glory, let them sing aloud on their beds. Let the high praises of Elohim be in their mouth and a two-edged sword in their hand” Tehillim - Psalm 149:4-6.

“Come out of her, My people, that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues.”

“Teach me Your way, O YHVH. I will walk in Your truth.
UNITE MY HEART TO FEAR YOUR NAME!”

Tehillim – Psalms 86:11

May YHVH Elohim bless and keep you in the palm of His hand always, in Messiah Yahushua’s loving Name!

Yahushua said; “No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day. It is written in the Prophets: They will all be taught by Elohim. Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from Him comes to Me. No one has seen the Father except the One who is from Elohim; only He has seen the Father. I tell you the truth he who believes has everlasting life.” Yochanan (John) 6:43-48.
