Come Out Of Man-Made Teachings

If the studies help you, please consider supporting the ministry. Click here for more info.

I created a new study called The True Gospel Story Decoded, which shows how Messiah is fulfilling His Father’s seven Holy Feast Days to redeem the set-apart saints. Here’s a link to the PDF of the study.

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

Here are 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 Roman Catholic Church is arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with precious stones, fulfilling Revelation 17:4.

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.

When the Pope and priests place the round Eucharist wafer (which represents the Babylonian sun god Nimrod) into the monstrance; it is place on a crescent moon (which represents the moon goddess Semiramus). This represents their symbolic sexual union, which creates their ‘christ in the flesh’, the Babylonian Tammuz, who is their reincarnated sun god.

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.

Constantine created the pagan based holiday of Christmas, which is based on the birth of the pagan Babylonian sun god Tammuz.

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

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.

And he and all of the Protestant Reformers testified that the Popes of Rome are the Son of Perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2, and the antichrist beast of Revelation 13.

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.

Constantine was given a vision that proclaimed, "In this sign, conquer!"

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 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.

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.

  1. Hi Dave, what about the Protestant Reformers like Martin Luther (the German Protestant Reformer and Founder of the Lutheran Church and Lutheranism) , John Calvin,(French Protestant Reformer and Founder of the Swiss Presbysterian Church and Calvinism), Ulrich Zwingli,(Swiss Co-Founder of the Swiss Presbysterian Church and Zwinglism), John Knox, (Scottish Presyterianism), Menno Simons (Founder of the Mennonite Church and Mennonitism). John Wycliffe (Translator of the English Bible from Latin) . William Tyndale (Translator of the English Bible from Greek) Bishop Thomas Cranmer (Founding Member of the Anglican Church and Anglicanism),John Bunyan,(Evangelist and Pastor of the Non-Conformist Puritan Church and Puritanism), John Newton (Hymn Writer of Amazing Grace ), John Wesley ( Evangelist and Founder of Methodism and Charles Wesley (Hymn Writer of Methodism) , Charles Spurgeon (American Prince of the Preachers) , John Hudson Taylor, (Missionary and Founder of China Inland Mission), William Carey, (Missionary to India), Billy Graham (US International Preacher) Cameron Townsend (Bible Translator and Founder of Wycliffe Bible Translators) George Verver (Founder of Operation Mobilization)….and my himble self? Have we all been deceived by Satan the Devil because we believed and taught THE TRUTH OF THE GOSPEL of GOD’S FREE GIFT OF DIVINE RIGHTEOUSNESS? You who have missed this CENTRAL TRUTH of THE GOSPEL OF RIGHTEOUSNESS BY FAITH ALONE and dogmatically denies it and instead teaches that GOD’S RIGHTEOUSNESS is TO BE EARNED or MERITED by WORKS or DEEDS or THE KEEPING and OBSERVANCES OF THE (MOSAIC) LAW which you saud includes THE DAYS (Sabbaths= Jewish Saturday Rest) and MONTHS (Jewish New Moons) and SEASONS (Appointed Times (Moediym= Jewish Feast Days or Festivals in Leviticus 23) and YEARS (Jewish Sabbatical and Jubilee (Shemitah) Years.
    You’re insisting that Gentile Christians under the New Covenant of Grace must return to
    ” O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed among you as crucified? This only I want to learn from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh?
    Therefore He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?— just as Abraham “believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” Therefore know that only those who are of faith are sons of Abraham. And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel to Abraham beforehand, saying, “In you all the nations shall be blessed.” So then those who are of faith are blessed with believing Abraham.
    For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them.” But that no one is justified by the law in the sight of God is evident, for “the just shall live by faith.” Yet the law is not of faith, but “the man who does them shall live by them.”
    Christ 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”), that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
    What purpose then does the law serve? It was added because of transgressions, till the Seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was appointed through angels by the hand of a mediator. 20Now a mediator does not mediate for one only, but God is one.
    Is the law then against the promises of God? Certainly not! For if there had been a law given which could have given life, truly righteousness would have been by the law. But the Scripture has confined all under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe. But before faith came, we were kept under guard by the law, kept for the faith which would afterward be revealed. Therefore the law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But AFTER faith has come, WE ARE NO LONGER UNDER A TUTOR
    The Purpose of the Law was to Point us to Jesus Christ as our Savior Not the Law itself which Brings a Curse upon its Violators!
    Hear! Hear! O Hear! Paul’s fear for those duped by the Judaistic Legalist Teachers in the Christian Churches Of Galatia
    But then, indeed, when you did not know God, you served those which by nature are not gods. But now after you have known God, or rather are known by God, how is it that you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements, to which you desire again to be in bondage? You observe DAYS (Sabbaths= Jewish Saturday Rest) and MONTHS (Jewish New Moons) and SEASONS (Appointed Times (Moediym= Jewish Feast Days or Festivals in Leviticus 23) and YEARS (Jewish Sabbatical and Jubilee (Shemitah) Years. I am afraid for you, lest I have labored for you in vain.
    But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is Christ therefore a minister of sin? Certainly not! For if I build again those things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. For I through the law died to the law that I might live to God. I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
    I DO NOT SET ASIDE THE GRACE OF GOD: FOR IF RIGHTEOUSNESS COMES THROUH THE LAW, THEN CHRIST DIED IN VAIN! (Greek Adverb=Verb-Modifier: G1432 δωρεὰν ” Without a Gift ”δωρεὰ” ”FREELY” or ”GRATUIOUSLY”(GODBEY NT). FOR NOTHING!” (NIV), ”FOR NAUGHT!” (BLB) then there was NO NEED for Christ to die.(NLT); for ”NO PURPOSE!” (ESV), ”NEEDLESSLY!'(NASB)’ ”WITHOUT A CAUSE!” (Geneva Bible)
    [His suffering and death would have had NO PURPOSE WHATSOEVER!.]” (AMPLIFIED BIBLE)

    • Charles, you listed some great theologians, but then included Billy Graham who proclaimed that all ways lead to God and ushered people into the harlot church of Rome of the antichrist beast Popes.

      Apparently you have been deceived, because you’re condemning the celebration of our Heavenly Father’s seven Holy Feast Days, which Messiah is fulfilling to redeem the set-apart saints.

      They are not Jewish Feast Days or Sabbaths, they are declared by our Heavenly Father for the true Israelites, those who believe by faith, to observe.

      I am not insisting that people carry out the ceremonial laws in regard to those Feast Days, as our High Priest is the only one who fulfills them in perfection.

      That said, Messiah’s fulfillment of His Father’s Seven Holy Feast days is the full Gospel narrative. They are divine appointments which have always pointed to our beloved Messiah fulfilling them.

      Messiah died on Passover as the Spotless Lamb.

      Messiah was dead in the grave on the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which symbolizes His sinlessness.

      Messiah rose again on the Feast of First Fruits.

      Messiah poured out His Father’s Spirit on the summer Feast of Pentecost.

      Messiah will return on the fall Feast of Trumpets.

      Messiah will make judgment on the Day of Atonement.

      And Messiah will marry His bride on the Feast of Tabernacles.

      How is it that you don’t understand these things??? And that you condemn me for celebrating them???

      Do you mistakenly celebrate Easter, which is based on the pagan fertility goddess Ishtar, with the fertility symbols of rabbits and eggs? Easter is not the same thing as Passover, it is a perversion of the narrative of Messiah dying our sins and rising again!

      Do you celebrate Christ-mass, which is based on the pagan tradition of the sun god dying on the winter solstice, being dead for three days, and then celebrate his rebirth on 12/25?

      Messiah was born in the fall, on the Feast of Tabernacles, as deity came to dwell (tabernacle) among us.

      I have never proclaimed that we are saved by works!!! We are saved by faith in Messiah’s atoning work alone!!! That said, if we don’t obey the commandments of our Heavenly Father and Messiah, our faith is dead.

      So do you think that the Heavenly Father is going to look down on His people setting aside the Sabbath day to rest? Do you think that He will condemn them putting aside the things of this world, to pray, study and praise Him?

      We don’t observe the Sabbath to earn salvation, we do it to restore our body, mind and to draw close to our Heavenly Father!

      It’s ridiculous to proclaim that we are not to seek to obey our Heavenly Father and Messiah’s commandments!!! We don’t do it to earn salvation, but out of love and reverence.

      Your declarations are contrary to these verses:

      1 John 2:3-4 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

      1 John 3:22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.

      1 John 5:2-3 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

      Revelation 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

      Revelation 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

      Your grace doctrine has caused you to cast aside the full Gospel narrative and the celebration of Messiah’s fulfillment of all that the Father declared.

      I’m not legalistic at all! I just follow the Scriptural faith! I strive to obey my Heavenly Fathers commandments out of love for Him, out of gratefulness that He saved me through the atoning work of His beloved Son.

      You would do well to study these things out, for you are casting aside an essential part of the Gospel narrative!

      BTW, my name is David, not Dave.

    • Thank you for the article Nathaniel, I’ll check it out. At first glance, why would they proclaim that His name is Jehovah, when the letter J didn’t exist until four centuries ago? Why would they not say that it’s Yahovah like the Strong’s Dictionary proclaims? יהוה Y@hovah yeh-ho-vaw’

      • It IS YehoWAH, with the emphasis on the last syllable. (If you check out the short booklet this becomes clear.) We Anglicize this as Jehovah. The Spanish is very close with YehoVAH.

  2. In the Septuagint (See SEPTUAGINT) aion is used to uniformly translate olam  (age). The Septuagint (which was ‘the Bible’ of Jesus and His Emissaries) uses the adjective aionios to translate l’olam va’ed which Hebrew phrase clearly does not mean forever or eternal. The manner in which the translators of the ancient Septuagint used aion and aionios is one of the strongest arguments that aion  and aionios do not mean eternal. Olam, and it’s derivative l’olam va’ed, are both mistranslated as eternal, everlasting, and forever in English Bibles but here is their definition from a Jewish source, ”The Hebrew word olam means in the far distance. When looking off in the far distance it is difficult to make out any details and what is beyond the horizon cannot be seen. This concept is the olam. The word olam is also used for time in the distant past or in the distant future as a time that is difficult to know or perceive. This word is frequently translated as eternity or forever in the English language, but it is misunderstood to mean a continual span of time that never ends. In the Hebrew mind it is simply what is at or beyond the horizon, a very distant time. A common phrase in the Hebrew is l’olam va’ed and is usually translated as ‘forever and ever’ but in the Hebrew it means ‘to the distant horizon and again’ meaning ‘to a very distant time and even further’ and is used to express the idea of a very ancient or future time.” In the Septuagint aionios is used to uniformly translate la’olam va’ed and aion uniformly translates olam which is proof positive these terms do not mean eternal, everlasting, or forever.
    Neither olam nor l’olam va’ed mean eternal or everlasting and so neither do  aion and aionios. That olam and l’olam va’ed did not mean eternal during the time the OT was being penned is demonstrated easily by using the Bible itself. Genesis 49:26 speaks of the ‘everlasting (olam)  hills’ in the KJV but Isaiah 40:4 says that every hill shall be made low. Exodus 40:15 says the Aaronic Priesthood is ‘everlasting’ (olam) but it came to an end in Jesus Christ. Exodus 12:14 says the Passover is to last ‘forever’ (olam) but it was fulfilled when our Lord Jesus instituted Communion. One may easily multiply such examples by using a concordance. As we learn in the Christian Scriptures the Law Covenant was not eternal but did last for l’olam va’ed, for an Age
    and beyond. We especially learn this in Romans and Galatians from the very Emissary to the Gentiles, Paul. The Law Covenant was appointed to last l’olam va’ed ‘to a very distant time and further’ until it was fulfilled by Jesus Christ in this Gospel Aeon or Age when the New Covenant was instituted. In the Septuagint (See SEPTUAGINT) olam is uniformly translated as aion,  and  aionios  translates l’olam va’ed. (See AEON, AEONIAN, DESTRUCTION, LAKE OF FIRE, PERDITION)

  3. Physician, heal thyself. You are a false prophet and are leading many into perdition. Repent and believe in the Gospel. You cannot hide from the Truth.

    • Michael, that’s a generic accusation with no context or proof. You’re welcome to prove with Scripture how I’m a false prophet. I’ll be interested to read your explanation.
