You might be tempted to click away based on the headline, so let me remind you that Messiah proclaimed that even the very elect could be deceived.
“For false messiahs and false prophets shall arise, and they shall show great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the chosen ones” Matthew 24:24
And let me point out Messiah’s sobering words to people who thought that they were His:
“Many shall say to Me in that day, ‘Master, Master, have we not prophesied in Your Name, and cast out demons in Your Name, and done many mighty works in Your Name?’ “And then I shall declare to them, ‘I never knew you, depart from Me, you who work lawlessness!’ Matthew 7:22-23
The enemy has caused Christians to assign the falling away of 2 Thessalonians 2 to the end times, but the apostasy that the Apostle Paul was referring to was fulfilled in the 4th century, and it still affects Christians today.
There is no sugar-coating to this message. It is a direct message to the end times church, because there’s not much time left, for darkness is on the horizon.
I pray that you will take the message seriously, and pray to the Spirit for discernment, for the end is near, and we all need to make sure that we have nothing to do with the teachings of the Babylonian harlot church of Rome.
For Messiah warned His church in Revelation 18:4:
Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
The ‘her’ that Messiah is referring to is the harlot Roman Catholic Church, which was clearly described in Revelation 17.
“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.“
The cardinals and bishops wear scarlet and purple.
The apostate church is decked with gold, precious stones, and pearls; which we can clearly see in how the Pope and St. Peter’s Basilica are adorned.
The apostate church uses a golden cup in their Eucharist ceremony, that is full of abominations of false god worship.
She pretends to be part of the true church, but her practices and symbols show that her worship is based on the Babylonian Mystery Religion; thus the name, Mystery, Babylon the Great.
The Harlot Roman Catholic Church study provides more proof.
You may be thinking that this doesn’t apply to you because you are a Protestant, not a Catholic; but this page will show you that much of what Protestants believe is based on teachings from Rome, not Scripture.
Protestant Churches are the daughters of the harlot, as many of their teachings came from Rome, not Scripture.
Today the Roman Catholic Church, the Orthodox Church and Protestant Churches, express their faith in what is called The Nicene Creed, which means that they are following the teaching of Rome, not Scripture.
At the first council at Nicaea in 325 A.D, Roman Emperor Constantine began to create the Roman religion of ‘Christianity’, based on their pagan worship rituals, that ultimately are based on the Babylonian Mystery religion.
Below is a brief explanation of the changes that Emperor Constantine and the Bishops of Rome made, which oppose the Scriptures.
They serve to steal glory and honor away from the Father, and they cause the followers of the Messiah to be out of covenant with Him.
You will see how today’s Christian churches are still following these changes today, and so they are steeped in the Babylonian religion without knowing it.
Let me set the stage first, so that you can understand why Satan caused Emperor Constantine to create a religion that is contrary to the Scriptures. Then you will see how this all affects Christians even today.
Satan used the pagan Roman Empire to try to wipe out the Early Church, killing 10 million saints; but Messiah’s church grew even faster.
The Roman Empire was declining as a result of civil wars, financial strain, famine and pestilence; so Satan changed his strategy to seek to destroy Messiah’s saints from within.
Satan caused Roman Emperor Constantine to act as a hero, ending the persecutions against the saints; and then had him create the Roman religion of Christianity, based on the Roman’s worship of the pagan gods.
Constantine then forced the saints to either compromise, apostatize, from their Scriptural beliefs; or be killed; and many fell away from the true faith, to be exalted in Rome.
Constantine created the pagan based holiday of Easter, which is based on the fertility goddess, Ishtar.
This is why fertility symbols such as rabbits and eggs are part of it. The 40 days of lent symbolized the life of Tammuz the Babylonians sun god, who died at age 40. He was killed by a wild boar, which is why ham is a traditional food on Easter, to remember Tammuz.
I’m sure that your observance of Easter doesn’t include worship any pagan gods; but the Scriptures warn us:
“Do not do so to YHUH your Elohim, for every abomination which YHUH hates they have done to their mighty ones” Deuteronomy 12:31
Scripture proclaims that Messiah died on the Feast of Passover, He was in the grave on the Feast of Unleavened Bread (symbolizing His sinlessness), and He rose again on the Feast of First Fruits. Those Holy Feast Days are what the saints should be observing, not Easter.
Let’s be clear about something. These are not just Jewish feasts.
These are the Father’s Holy Feast Days, which Messiah is still in the process of fulfilling, to redeem His set-apart people. He is not done, as He has not fulfilled the three fall Feast Days yet, which represent His return for His bride.
Constantine created the pagan based holiday of Christmas, which is based on the birth of the pagan Babylonian sun god Tammuz.
Saturnalia is a pagan holiday that was celebrated on 12/25, way before Messiah was born. Constantine integrated Saturnalia into his new holiday called Christmas, to appease the Romans, and to draw all religions under the authority of Rome.
12/25 is the absolute worst day of the year to select to celebrate Messiah’s birth.
Messiah was conceived on Hanukkah (in early December), as He is the light of the world. Nine months later He was born on the Feast of Tabernacles, as He came to dwell among us.
The fall Feast Days represent Messiah’s return (Feast of Trumpets), His judgment (Feast of Atonement) and His marriage to His bride (Feast of Tabernacles).
I understand that Christians are not worshiping pagan gods on Christmas, but the bigger point that I would make is about what they are not doing.
They are not observing their Father’s seven Holy Feast Days, which Messiah is fulfilling for their redemption. Every follower of Messiah should know and celebrate these Feast Days, for they give the proper context of His return.
Emperor Constantine wrote “… it appeared an unworthy thing that in the celebration of this most holy feast we should follow the practice of the Jews, who have impiously defiled their hands with enormous sin, and are, therefore, deservedly afflicted with blindness of soul. … Let us then have nothing in common with the detestable Jewish crowd; for we have received from our Saviour a different way.” (Eusebius’ Life of Constantine, Book 3 chapter 18)
In other words, he condemned the Holy Feast Days by saying that they were ‘Jewish.’ What he didn’t say is that the Messiah, from the tribe of Judah, is the one who is fulfilling the Feast Days.
Christians do the same thing today, they delegate them as Jewish feasts, and say that they are to be dismissed. But that stance is contrary to Scripture.
The Apostle Paul told the Corinthians to keep the feast of Unleavened Bread. “Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us. Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.” 1 Corinthians 5:7-8
Constantine revered Sunday, the ‘Lord’s Day’.
Prior to Constantine’s changes, the first day of the Roman Calendar was Saturday; but he changed it to SUNday as he was a Sun worshiper.
Let me be clear about a misconception. There was no such thing as Saturday or Sunday during Messiah’s ministry, so Messiah was not crucified on Friday and He did not rise on Sunday; because there was no such thing.
Messiah died on the Holy Feast Day of Passover and He rose on the Feast of First Fruits, as he is the first to rise again.
So the early church did not meet on Sunday, because there was no such thing. They met on the first day of the Scriptural week, not the Roman calendar week.
The Roman calendar at the time had 8-days per week, and the days were named after the first 8 letters of their alphabet.
It wasn’t until later in the first century, they some Romans started observing a 7-day week, but the first day of that calendar was Saturday, not Sunday.
The point that I’m making is that the enemy has caused Christians to revere Sunday, but there is no Scriptural justification for it being the Lord’s Day.
And there is no Scriptural justification for a Saturday Sabbath either, as there is no way to align the 7th day Sabbath of Scripture with Saturday of the Roman calendar. And do we really think that Satan would allow that to happen anyway? Surely not, for he is a great deceiver!
Constantine removed the saints from observing the Sabbath.
The Father instituted the Sabbath observance as an everlasting covenant between Him and His people. Everlasting means that it does not end.
“And you, speak to the children of Israel, saying, ‘My Sabbaths you are to guard, by all means, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, to know that I, Yahuah, am setting you apart.” Exodus 31:13
“And I also gave them My Sabbaths, to be a sign between them and Me, to know that I am Yahuah who sets them apart. ‘And set apart My Sabbaths, and they shall be a sign between Me and you, to know that I am Yahuah your Elohim.’ Ezekiel 20:12,20
Every believer who has a covenant relationship with the Father through the Son, is an Israelite. His everlasting Sabbath covenant has always been with the true Israelites, the one’s who believed by faith.
Satan hates this covenant, so he caused Emperor Constantine to forbid the practice, and forced people to worship on SUNday.
It is for our benefit as much as the Father’s. It causes us to be still for a day, to escape the influences and stress of this world. It gets people to spend time reading Scripture, in prayers, with family, with like-minded people, etc.
Most Christians mistakenly believe that Messiah did away with the law.
But the opposite is true. The Mosaic law was for babes, who could only stomach milk. But Messiah gave His followers meat, He wrote the law on their hearts and minds, and He gave them the Spirit to empower them to fulfill it.
Lest you think that I am saying that we can earn salvation by works, I am not. What I am saying is that works are the proof of our faith. If we really believe what we claim to believe, then we will have good works, which prove our faith. Faith without works is dead, it is no faith at all.
Messiah took keeping the law to the next level:
“Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire” Matthew 5:21-22
“Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart” Mat 5:27-28
The written record of our transgressions, which testify against us, which condemn us; was nailed to the cross of Calvary.
“And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross” Colossians 2:13
The moral law of the Torah, the commandments to observe the Holy Feast Days and 7th Day Sabbath, were not nailed to the cross and eliminated, as so many people teach.
The ceremonial law was fulfilled by our Messiah, who is fulfilling the Holy Feast Days in exacting detail, so we don’t have to observe the ceremonial part of the law, meaning we don’t have to sacrifice a lamb on Passover anymore.
Following His commands is not a burden, when we love Him.
“By this we know that we love the children of Elohim, when we love Elohim and guard His commands. For this is the love for Elohim, that we guard His commands, and His commands are not heavy.” 1 John 5:2-3
Protestants don’t know the Father’s personal covenant name.
The New King James Bible clearly admits that it changed the Father’s covenant name,
“The Covenant Name of God in the Old Testament, represented by the Hebrew consonants YHWH is translated “Lord” or “God” as it was in the King James.”
Friend, we should never change the Covenant Name of the Father!
The titles of ‘God’ and ‘Lord’ are generic terms. If someone says that they believe in god, that is not telling you whom they serve.
Their god could be Allah or Buddha or Satan.
Has it ever struck you that Muslims call their false god by a personal name?
They don’t say that they believe in god, they say that they believe in Allah.
We have been deceived into calling our Father by generic terms like ‘God’ and ‘Lord’.
The Hebrew Scriptures give us the Father’s personal, covenant name, which should be hallowed above all other names.
The Hebrew Scriptures clearly declare His name, with the letters YHUH, spelled out as Yahuah, sounded out as Yah-Hoo-Ah.
The Scriptures declare that the name of the Son means “Yahuah Saves,” so His name includes part of the Father’s name along with the Hebrew word for ‘saves.’
The Son’s personal name is Yahusha, which is spelled from right to left
in Hebrew as יהושע. It is sounded out as Yah-Hoo-Sha.
Much has been done in Jesus name, but that is the Greek variant of His name. The Father knows our beliefs about Messiah, and the Protestant Reformers and preachers of the Great Awakening proclaimed the name of Jesus, and millions were saved.
It wasn’t given to previous generations to know, but the Spirit is moving in these last days, to return us to the ancient path of truth, to prepare us for Messiah’s return. I prefer to use the name that His parents and the disciples called Him; as I would think that any follower of Messiah would. Read The Names Of The Father And The Son
Protestant Churches teach false futuristic prophecy explanations.
Satan used the Popes of Rome to kill the saints during the Dark Ages. When Catholic monk Martin Luther was led to read the Scriptures, he found that the Roman Church was an apostate church, the harlot church of Revelation 17.
To counter this the Popes empowered the Jesuits of Rome, to counter the Reformation and bring the Protestants back under the authority of Rome.
They did this by force, through the Inquisition, where they tortured and killed the saints who would not renounce their beliefs.
And they did it by creating false Bible prophecy explanations, that assigned the fulfillment of Revelation to the end times, and said that the antichrist is one-man in the end. They did this to deflect blame away from the Popes of Rome.
The saints did not believe their explanations, and their deceptions didn’t take hold under a few hundred years ago.
Sadly, today their futuristic explanations deceive most Christians, as they don’t understand that the office of the papacy, the Popes of Rome, fulfill prophecy as the antichrist, the enemy of Messiah and His church.
The saints should be protesting against the Popes and Jesuits of Rome, as they are the enemy of Messiah and His saints, and they mislead 1.2 Billion Catholics with a false salvation message.
They should be fighting against the enemy of Messiah and His Church, and witnessing to Catholics who have been misled.
The sad part is that most Christians don’t even know who the antichrist of Scripture is, and they have no clue that most of Revelation has been fulfilled during the last 1,900 years. And that is because they are believing the deceptions which originated from the Jesuits of Rome.
The enemy causes Christians to condemn people who are teaching these truths.
Believers today are so far removed from Scriptural truth, that when someone proclaims any of the Scriptural truths listed above, they are deemed as a heretic!
Sadly, some Hebrew Roots Movement people are legalistic Pharisees; but many of the truths that they share are Scriptural.
Christians have failed in their mission to shine as a light unto this world. The salt of their witness is rendered worthless. And I believe that American Christians are about to be judged.
Roman Emperor Constantine was given a vision that proclaimed, “In this sign, conquer!” and conquer he has. His creation of the Roman religion of Christianity has caused many saints to stumble.
Christians are a stumbling block to Jews coming to faith in Messiah.
The beliefs of Christians are a big reason why Jews don’t come to faith in Messiah. They know nothing of Easter and Christmas, as they are pagan and not Scriptural.
But the Jews certainly know the Holy Feast Days, because the Father declared them. And when we show them that the Messiah is fulfilling the Holy Feast Days in exact detail, then Jews can see that He is their Messiah.
They know nothing of Greek Jesus, but would understand His Hebrew name Yahusha, which means ‘Yahuah, the Father, saves’.
They can’t comprehend that Messiah would do away with the Torah, the law; as Christians proclaim.
So they reject the pagan concepts that are associated with Christianity, and they remain lost.
The bottom line is that what Christians believe is a false religion of Rome.
They believe in a Messiah named Jesus; but no man named Jesus died for their sins, as it was Yahusha who died on the cross of Calvary.
They call the Father by the titles of God and Lord; but He emphasizes the need to call Him by His name, YaHUaH.
They observe pagan-based holidays; but they ignore the Scriptural Holy Feast Days, which Messiah is fulfilling for their redemption.
They believe on the futuristic prophecy deceptions; but history proves the fulfillment of most of Revelation during the last 1,900 years.
Does the Messiah really know us:
If we call Him and His Father by the wrong name?
If we don’t celebrate the Holy Feast Days, which He is fulfilling for your redemption?
If we don’t rest in Him on His perpetual Holy 7th day Sabbath, which marks our covenant with Him?
We can’t use the excuse of what others did in previous generations, for we have access to so much more information now.
Many millions have been saved using the name Jesus, because the Father knows our beliefs about Messiah. But why would a follower of Messiah not want to know the Hebrew name that His parents and disciples called Him?
Why would a follower of Messiah not want to know about the Father’s seven divine appointments, which Messiah is fulfilling to redeem us?
Why would a follower of Messiah not want to know about the fall Feast Day which represents the harvest and Messiah’s return for His bride?
You may think that your religious beliefs are just fine as they are, but this is what Messiah had to say about the end times church.
Because you say, “I am rich, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked.” Revelation 3:17
In Revelation 3:19-21, Messiah chastises the end-times church, proclaiming that they’re lukewarm, wretched, miserable, naked, poor, and blind. Then He gives us the promise:
As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
The word ‘overcomes’ in Greek is nikao. It means to conquer, to overcome, to prevail, to get the victory.
Ever since I began my studies of Revelation, and read that passage, I’ve felt that the name Nikao defined my ministry, for my calling is to teach the fulfillment of prophecy, and to expose the deceptions of the enemy. That is how we conquer the enemy and get the victory!
So when I created a Facebook profile for ministry, I used the name Nikao, because I don’t make Facebook about me. I don’t post selfies, I don’t make posts about my life. I focus on overcoming the enemy, by teaching prophecy fulfillment. When I started posting YouTube videos, I used that name.
It’s the name that I resonate with more than my given name, especially since I don’t have children, so my real name won’t be passed on. But I don’t want to mislead anyone about who I am. I hope that my work brings honor to my father and mother, who blessed me so much by teaching me about our beloved Messiah.
I pray to our Heavenly Father in the power of Messiah’s name that He will give you eye salve to see the truth.
