Humans Lower Than Angels
2 Thessalonians 2:9-13 (King James Version)
9Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish, because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Please Wake up! before it's too late!

Do your soul a favor and return to KJV
---mima on 1/21/09

Pardon me Mima, but what is that letter on the end of that bible translation you have? Right its a V
it is just a verson as all the others are of the Orignial scripts. The KJV is full of translation errors just as the others are. But dont get me wrong I own a 1611 KJV, due to that is what I bought somefew years ago. That is my main source for reading. Though I know where the errors are and will search for any others that may be there. But I also use the hebrew to study by.


What Is A Israelite
Are there any scripture that support your view on why Abram was called a Hebrew?
---MIchael on 8/18/09

I see what you are saying. But I dont think that it was because he was from Hebron why he was called a Hebrew. But if you do a study of the word you will see what I am talking about. Paul even said that he was a Hebrew of the hebrews, that didnt mean he was from hebron because he was from rome. But we as believers are actullay Hebrews because of what it means. And NT believers were not called christians but "Followers of the Way".


What Is A Israelite
As for being a Hebrew, Abraham was called Hebrew because he lived in Hebron (Gen 13:18

MIchael on 8/17/09

Hello Michael,

Actullay Abraham was not from Hebron, but he was from the land of Ur of the Chaldeans Gen.11:31 He was called a Hebrew because he chose to follow the voice of YHWH. the word hebrew means to cross over. Thus Abraham crossed over from a pagan lifestyle to following after YHWH.
So if you were to be tecinacal about it believers would not be called "christians" but hebrews.

What Is A Israelite
A "christian" cannot be a gentile. A Gentile is anyone who is NOT an ISRAELITE. A pagan person that was consdered to be a dog Mat 15:26 And a person who was commond and an unclean person Acts 10:28 were gentiles.
But if a gentile came to the Faith are they still a Gentile or a stranger to the covenant of YHWH? NO they may still be the same person on the inside but their nationality has changed. Is.56
In YHWH's eyes there is no such thing as a GENTILE christian. That is contradicting of itself. Its like saying "Im a pagan christian" sounds stupid dont it?

How Many Commandments

Where is the new covenant for the gentiles listed at in the bible?

Reread the book of Hebrews and tell me what is the focal point of the book on? is it on the covenant commandments or the preisthood and sacrifices?

You also need to go back and reread Acts chpter 15 mainly vs 21

Its funny but the children of Israel were given those same two comandments Deut 6:4-5, Lev. 19:18 They are not new commandments

How To Keep The Sabbath
and go get circumcised as without it you are not part of His covenant.
---Lee1538 on 8/12/09

Lee your last statement is true, now go back and read heb.8 again and then tell me what the subject of that ch is. as a matter of fact read the whole book of hebrews and tell me what the subject is. It has nothing to do with the commandments that have to do with Holy living. It is speacking about the priesthood and the sacrifices. And notice the slanted words in your translation in chapter 8. the word covenant has been added so people asume it is talking about the commandments and not the sacrifices. There are two parts to the covenant Jer.7:21-24. one is still valid and the other is completed in Yahshua(sacrifices) Heb 8

Are 10 Commandments In Force
Since love of neighbor fulfills the law ...

laws that have nothing to do with love of neighbor such as their dietary laws and required beliefs
Lee on 8/13/09

Lee, do you eat Pork? If so then you should read Isa 65:3-6 and Isa 66:17

That is not just singleing out pork only but all unclean foods are an abomination to YHWH.
And it may be true that the food laws have nothing to do with loving your neighbor but it has EVERYTHING to do with loveing YHWH. For He said "If you love Me keep My comands"
Jer 7:23 But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.

Heaven Destroyed With Temple
the bondwoman represent instructions that were no longer necessary because of Messiah's death at the stake-the ceremonial laws. Hebrews 10:4,10
---Meira on 8/13/09

hello meira,
The bondwoman did not represent the instructions. It represented our nature to do things own our own. Abraham tried to gain the promised son his way and failed. that is why hagar is referred to as the BONDwoman. trying to do things your way and not YHWH's way puts youu in bondage

What Is A Israelite
an israelite is someone holding the Israeli passport, a jew is someone born of the seed of Abraham, isaak and Jakob, or someone who converted to judaism.
---andy3996 on 8/12/09

And Israelite is a desendent of Jacob (Israel). They were not call "Children of Israel" until Jacob had his name changed.
There are 12 sons of Israel and they are NOT all Jews (of the tribe of Judah)

Abraham and Isaak were not Jews. They were Hebrews. As so are all who turn from their pagan ways and follow after YHWH. That is what the word Hebrew means.

What Is A Israelite
If that is the question, I do not believe that there is any difference between the Jew and the Gentile other than the phyisicality and the geography.
---Janze on 8/12/09

I know what the difference is between them. I have asked the question because so many people seperate themselves from the covenantal people of YHWH and say that they are not part of Israel. The 12 sons were not Israelites until YHWH changed their Fathers name to Israel thus giving them the name for their National standings with the rest of the world. The nation of Israel is YHWH's people and if anyone wants to follow Him they must be grafted into the covenant that YAH made with only them.

How To Keep The Sabbath
I am no longer under the OT laws, so I follow the New Testament:
Colossians 2:16 (KJV)
Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
---Gary on 8/11/09

Gary how do you claim that Co.2:16 tells you not to keep the Sabbath? Do you revere Paul's writings over YHWH's. The Father told us to keep His Sabbath day and that commandment has not changed, and you say Paul tells us not to? That is not what Paul is talking about. He is telling us not to let anyone who is not of the Faith tell us how we should or should not obey the Father's commanments.


How To Keep The Sabbath
It wouldn't matter if God gave the Ten Commandments in Genesis 1, the law ENDED at the cross. We are now under the law of Christ.
---Gary on 8/12/09

It does matter when and where He gave them. the came from His mouth, and you would disreguard them? Gary have you ever read what the commandments are? I dont mean just reading over them but have you really read them? If you have can you name one commandment that would put you in bondage if you were to try to obey it? The commandments for holy living did not end at the cross. the only thing that was stopped was the law for sin and death. Meaning that if you sin you die. we have a replacement for that law who is Yahshua the Messiah. that is what it talks about in Ro. law vs grace

How To Keep The Sabbath
People say the the Messiah done away with the Sabbath and made a "new" covenant? Where is THAT found in the bible? When the Father gave His commandments,that was it, there was no changing them to sute ones needs or style of living. No one can reverse His commands. And IF the Messiah did do that as the church teaches then He is a false prophet according to Deut.13. The Sabbath is the sign that the Fahter gave to seperate His people from the rest of the world. Think about it, who in the world is it that keeps the Father's Sabbath? The "Jews" and anyone else that follows YHWH's commandments. And who in the world is not keeping His Sabbath? Nonbelievers, and christians who think that their messiah came and done awaywith it.

I Don't Understand Revelation
Your logic is flawed here. Even if he comes in the future, my dead grandfather will not have seen him come from clouds. Therefore, it is understood that John meant every eye during that time which included the eyes of those who pierced him.

Bad Things After The Ratpure
John also says in Revelation 1:9 that "I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation...." If Revelation talks about the end of the world, then John can't be our companion, can he? But he was a companion to the church back then. Revelation 1:7 says "Behold, he cometh with clouds, and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him...." This is not talking about the end of the world if those who pierced him shall see him.

Bad Things After The Ratpure
Revalation chapter 1 states these events will "shortly come to pass" and the "time is at hand," therefore we know revelation is not talking about the end of the world. The book is called The Revelation of Jesus Christ, and yet matthew 24:36 says "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my father only." Here Jesus admits only his father knows the time of his coming, therefore the Revelation of Jesus Christ cannot be about the end of the world
