UPDATE 9 July 2016

I don't work there and haven't for several years.

When I worked there for 35 years, I was serving Yahusha. He asked, and I said I would serve Him there, or anywhere. I've never hidden my identity from anyone.

The slanderers are hiding, and they’ve never done the things they claim. I've never met them, nor does anyone know their identity.

They do not show the context the "evil objects" have around them.

All over the store there were teachings which people would read and learn from. These things are never mentioned by the slanderers because like the media, they slant things to fit their objective: to destroy my reputation.

Pray for them, Yahuah hates this kind of thing.

NUMBER NINE UNPACKED:

“You do not bear false witness against your neighbor.”

You do not (LO H3808, no, never, not) bear (ANAH H6030, testify, announce, utter) false (SHOA H7722, devastating, desolating, deceptive, destructive) witness (ED H5707, testify, record) against your neighbor (REYA H7453, associate, fellow, companion).

The principle behind this and other Commandments is the Golden Rule. This is training in how to love our neighbor, even our enemies.

“Therefore, whatever you wish men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Torah and the Prophets.” Mt. 7:12

In either side of a matter, a "spin" can be formed to justify one's perspective. It helps to play scary music and conceal one's identity as the one side projects their perspective, but then Proverbs 18:17 shows us this:

"The first to state his own case seems right, until another comes and examines him."

The bearer of an evil report, or one trying to make someone else look bad (as we see in politics constantly) transmits words of death that are intended to destroy the reputation of another person.

Destroying the reputation of another person is known as trolling when the Internet is used, but in general we never make ourselves look good when we try to make someone else look bad. Hiding our identity as we attack someone's reputation shows everyone how dark our heart really is.

Proverbs 18:17:

“The first to state his own case seems right until another comes and examines him.”

If we keep Php. 4, Eph. 4, and Romans 12 in mind at all times, we can identify the fruit of any tree, including the fruit we are bearing in ourselves. The Torah is a mirror that shows us what we look like as we behave in the world. May we all reflect Yahusha's essence always. Forgive as you have been forgiven.

When we see Yahusha’s wounds, we will feel in our heart how much He loves us. By His wounds we are healed. (YashaYahu 53:5)

Gossip ends at a wise person's ears.

Seeking For Lost Sheep At Electric Ladyland

“How could you work in such a place?”

This question, along with a condescending attitude of self-righteousness, often comes to me from fellow believers.

The things many people say seem profoundly judgmental, and speak of a need for my repentance, without specifying what I may personally have done through working in the store that violates Yahuah's Torah.

It’s true that I’ve worked incognito among the witches, sorcerers, atheists, Christians, Hindu’s, Buddhists, and so on. When He awakened me, I heard His call:

"Who will go for us?"

Yahusha sends His Natsarim among them; and one He chose was me.

I have not worked in the store for years now, and yet because the store is a corporation and owes hundreds of thousands of dollars to a bank, the ownership I retain is 40% at this time is necessary. I'm personally signed to the bank note. I have no part in daily operations, scheduling, hiring, or buying. If I owned 51% of the stock, then I could influence operations.

When I worked in the store, I was able to reach people personally, and I'm grateful to Yahusha for equipping and training me to be there for Him, a light in the darkness.

I'd like to know what "dark practices" they seem to think I was partaking in, and how one of Yahusha's servants can be so absorbed in how He chooses to use another servant to reach the lost sheep.

The plan has been Yahusha’s all along.

I'd love to have been able to be used longer there, but Yahusha chose to take me away from it for the last several years to do other things for Him.

Electric Ladyland Mission Field

In 1985 Yahusha awakened me to serve Him, and to remain where I was to do so. While I was there, many thousands of people saw and heard the Truth. If Yahusha tells you to do something that others condemn you for, stick to it - you don't report to anyone but Him. 
A prophet was told to marry a prostitute, another was sent to the capital city of the enemy, but in the end, the mission they served was done. We who love Yahusha can smell His sweet Spirit on one another as we build-up one another, but those who are impostors do not have His fruits and tear down His servants. 
Sow His Commandments everywhere, even in the back alleys - wherever the lost may be found.

http://www.fossilizedcustoms.com/electricladyland.html

In the time since I've left the store, I've translated the BYNV, written the updated Fossilized Customs 12th Edition, and the new books Truth Or Tradition, Strong Delusion, Sunday Origins, Reapers, and Nimrod's Secret Identity. These books are in the store now, along with DVD's and articles teaching the Truth.

I'm sorry people feel they have to warn me, but I'm busy being used by Yahusha inviting the lost in the byways and side roads of this world, to bring as many as I can to stand with us when we come to meet Him.

If I look filthy to you, my heart is clean. As we work in the harvest field for Yahusha, we may seem to get dirty, but He keeps us clean.

At first I wanted to run away; but Yahusha revealed to me how He wanted me right where He awakened me.

One could not find a better placement for one of His Natsarim.

Travelers from far and wide have carried seed away with them.

If we love one another as He loved us, we will lay down our lives for one another. He gave me His heart for the lost, and uplifts me when most others condemn me.

The more persecution that we endure, the more we should rejoice!

Sharing Yahusha’s love for the lost with you, Lew White

“In brotherly love, tenderly loving towards one another, in appreciation, giving preference to each other; not idle in duty, ardent in spirit, serving the Master;
rejoicing in the expectancy, enduring under pressure, continuing steadfastly in prayer; imparting to the needs of the set-apart ones, pursuing kindness towards strangers.
Bless those who persecute you – bless and do not curse.
Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.
Be of the same mind toward one another.

Do not be proud in mind, but go along with the lowly.

Do not be wise in your own estimation.
Repay no one evil for evil. Respect what is right in the sight of all men.
If possible, on your part, be at peace with all men.
Beloved, do not revenge yourselves, but give place to the wrath, for it has been written,

“Vengeance is Mine, I shall repay,” says Yahuah.
Instead, if your enemy hungers, feed him; if he thirsts, give him a drink, for in so doing you shall heap coals of fire on his head.”
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”
   - Romans 12:10-21

Hiding their own identity very carefully (as trolls do), the "Messianic Hall Of Shame" and others piling-on to cause deliberate malicious harm to several people. The evil and ugliness that is felt when watching or reading their presentations is overwhelming, and stems from the hatred / jealousy in the heart of those who designed the expositions, not the subjects of their hatred.

What is being done (for several years) is criminal behavior, and defined in this way:

Legal definition

Cyberbullying is defined in legal glossaries as:

·       actions that use information and communication technologies to support deliberate, repeated, and hostile behavior by an individual or group, that is intended to harm another or others.

·       use of communication technologies for the intention of harming another person

·       use of internet service and mobile technologies such as web pages and discussion groups as well as instant messaging or SMS text messaging with the intention of harming another person.

Examples of what constitutes cyberbullying include communications that seek to intimidate, control, manipulate, put-down, falsely discredit, or humiliate the recipient. The actions are deliberate, repeated, and hostile behavior intended to harm another. Cyberbullying has been defined by The National Crime Prevention Council: “When the Internet, cell phones or other devices are used to send or post text or images intended to hurt or embarrass another person.”

A cyberbully may be a person whom the target knows or an online stranger. A cyberbully may be anonymous and may solicit involvement of other people online who do not even know the target. This is known as a 'digital pile-on.'

A GOOD REPORT CONCERNING THE MESSIANIC HALL OF SHAME

“And you, you intended evil against me, but Alahim intended it for good, in order to do it as it is this day, to keep a great many people alive.” - Gen. / Barashith 50:20

The following are the words of a brother affected by seeing the persecution by the Messianic Hall of Shame’s slander against Lew White:

Testimony

“I'm also thankful for you specifically, because it was your experience that Yahusha used to trigger me into action, in another very unexpected way that proves His power in what the world views as foolishness . . .  I repeat that if I hadn't seen those silly persecutor’s attacks online, I might have not even entertained any attempt to rise above my precious misery . . . lol. I now see how Yahuah uses what we sometimes view as a thorn to armor us and give Him esteem, or to rescue another. I never give a second thought to anyone who seems too perfect. Strength in weakness gives me the courage to hold on to Him.

It was through your persecution that He reached me, and so I'll never be ashamed of my past. We have all have been given many gifts, and you definitely show that you can use those gifts to the best of your ability for the Kingdom, and it inspires me to get over myself and keep on moving. That is where Yahusha's spirit communicates so loudly to us at times, and what makes you so approachable and relatable. Your devotion to love and gentleness, peace and patience, and humility where it's essential, and your obvious understanding of the human heart and mind, evidences the fruit of the Ruach to those like myself who hear that familiar voice . . .”

Lew’s response:

We know how, when, and why we became who we are, and Yahusha walked beside us waiting for us to realize we needed Him.

Rather than run away from others who are still as we once were, we are now equipped to help them in Yahusha’s power.

It’s never been about us, but rather about Him. Now others who are lost can come to Him through the words He gives us to share with them.

I’m so glad He used me and the persecution from false followers to open your eyes to His love. We must decrease, and He must increase!

I’m sorry so many tender hearts are being harmed by the slander.

I don’t work in the store, and have not for years.

My partial ownership was the only reason I could open my mouth and stock my books, articles, and DVD’s.

The videos don’t show the messages placed near the “idols” – which were all used as object lessons to teach against them.

See some of them close-up here: http://www.fossilizedcustoms.com/electricladyland.html 

There is nothing scary going on but the music in the videos, and I pray for the slanderers every day.

“Let no corrupt word come out of your mouth, but only such as is good for the use of building up, so as to impart what is pleasant to the hearers.

And do not grieve the Set-apart Spirit of Alahim, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.

Let all bitterness, and wrath, and displeasure, and uproar, and slander be put away from you, along with all evil.

And be kind towards one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as Alahim also forgave you in Mashiak.” – Eph. 4:29-32 

   The two brothers, Kepha and Andri, supported their families by fishing.  Yahusha related their occupation of fishing to what they (and we) would be doing among all mankind.  To fish for mankind today, Yahusha’s “fishers” and “hunters” use tools other than nets and boats.  We “fish” and “hunt” in various ways, and it was prophesied that we would hunt for the lost from every mountain (nation), every hill (culture), and even the holes of the rocks (tough places where the lost are embedded):

        “‘See, I am sending for many fishermen,’ declares Yahuah, ‘and they shall fish them.  And after that I shall send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain and every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.’”  Jer/YirmeYahu 16:16

   “For though I am free from all, I made myself a servant to all, in order to win more, and to the Yahudim I became as a Yahudi, that I might win Yahudim; to those who are under Torah, as under Torah, so as to win those who are under Torah; to those without Torah, as without Torah – not being without Torah toward Alahim, but under Torah of Messiah – so as to win those who are without Torah.  To the weak I became as weak, so as to win the weak. To all men I have become all, so as to save some, by all means.”  1Co 9:19-22

    After finishing college, I began a business with my closest friend, which I have known since childhood.  He is a decent, honest person, whom I pray for daily to receive the Spirit of Yahusha.  This business is a music outlet with a "hippie" decor, and it is a friendly, clean environment that whole families come to for shopping.  The retail business we started in 1978 was engaged in selling records, tapes (now CD’s & DVD’s), incense, posters, jewelry, tapestries, clothing, and a wide variety of young lifestyle gifts, including tobacco pipes (both traditional and contemporary).  It was a “hippie store” from the beginning.  After 3 or 4 years, we worked in the store less and less, but still owned it as equal shareholders.  With my extra time, I was able to study whatever I liked;  my favorite passion involved the sciences (especially physics, biology, and cosmology).  After some time, I reached the point where I realized that “science” was full of theories, few facts, and was a belief system being promoted by elitists called “scientists”, but they were primarily humanists who projected a superficial, philosophic “piety”, and they demanded devotion and reverence.  Having had my eyes opened to their agenda, I was now ready to receive the Truth.

   At various times there are certain people who learn of this store, and they gasp when they are told it is associated with “drug-sorcery” (like the whole world isn’t?).   This idea has usually been shared with them from a source engaged in lashon hara” (the evil tongue, Lev. 19:16).  They don’t contact me first about their concerns (as directed for us at Mt 18:15-17), but jump right up and make radical accusations and conclusions about me to others that are intended to injure me, never suspecting that I am a hunter doing Yahusha’s work among the lost (you can detect the hatred in them when you listen to them).  Their rationalization is that Lew White is directly engaged in promoting the use of “DRUG SORCERY."   It is a real possibility that some of the customers of this store (as well as other stores) commit a civil misdemeanor by smoking a civilly-illegal herb (which Yahusha created) in a pipe purchased from the store, although signs are posted that declare they are intended only for use with tobacco or legal herbs (tobacco could become illegal at any time).  There are Messianic Natsarim, even some who refer to themselves as “rabbis”, that smoke tobacco, marijuana, and use other long-lived self-medications such as wine (the alcoholic kind).  If we sold automobiles, any of our customers might exceed the speed limit, or run a stop sign;  this too would be a misdemeanor, but completely out of the control of the seller.  We also sell black-light posters, lighters, tie-die shirts, and incense.  What if some of the customers are Hindu/New Agers that offer the incense we sell to an idol, along with a tray of doughnuts (we don’t happen to sell doughnuts)?  If someone runs stop signs, one cannot conclude that it is the fault of the one that sold them the automobile.  If someone smokes illegal herbs, one cannot conclude that it is the fault of the one that sold them a lighter or pipe.  If someone breaks the Sabbath, one cannot conclude that it is the fault of anyone else.  Superficial piety, false associations, and the evil tongue were used by the Pharisees to tear down the reputation of Yahusha:

 “And it came to be, as Yahusha sat at the table in the house, that see, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat down with Him and His taught ones.  And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to His taught ones, ‘Why does your Teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?’

And Yahusha hearing this, said to them, ‘Those who are strong have no need of a physician, but those who are sick.  But go and learn what this means, ‘I desire compassion and not offering.’ For I did not come to call the righteous to repentance, but sinners.’” Mt 9:10-13

 “The Son of Adam came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘See, a man, a glutton and a winedrinker, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ And wisdom was declared right by her works.” Mt 11:19

   Husha (Hoshea) the Prophet was told to marry a whore for Yahuah to make His point:  that Israel was a whore to Him.  If any person is without sin, or can control his tongue, he is a perfect man.  Like the prophet Husha, I was specifically equipped for the mission given to me.  Only a small part of the work involves the little hippie store, my interest in which has been for sale since 1991.  The faltering income received from the retail store described in this letter supports about 50% of this ministry.  For this, I’m thankful.  

My commission to do the work I’m sent to do comes from far above any Earthly authority.  The fact that I’m attacked for doing it from the household of faith is sad, but much of that may be from those who are spiritually darkened.  This darkness is revealed to all in their method of attack and intent, as people hear their lashon hara (slanders). 

“Who are you that judges another’s servant?  To his own master he stands or falls.  But he shall be made to stand, for Alahim is able to make him stand.”  

- Romans 14:4   

   If you look at any of the first several editions of Fossilized Customs, you will find that the address, used for many years, was this store at 2325 Bardstown Road.  This store was the original base from which this ministry of Yahusha was launched.  We are still surrounded by witches in the community, as well as homosexuals, and many other lost souls.  The “faithful Christians” who “go to church” right down the street from this store are headed for the same eternal destination as the witches and homosexuals, unless Yahusha can reach them through fishers and hunters.  I have never stood in condemnation of another elder Natsari, nor conveyed lashon hara against a brother or sister.  The papacy, dalai lama, Constantine, and the like are not brethren, and their lies I do expose while I am free to do so.

“Perverseness is in his heart, plotting evil at all times, he sends out strife.

Therefore his calamity comes suddenly; instantly he is broken, and there is no healing.

These six matters Yahuah hates, and seven are an abomination to Him:

a proud look, a lying tongue, and hands shedding innocent blood,

a heart devising wicked schemes, feet quick to run to evil,

a false witness breathing out lies, and one who causes strife among brothers.”  Pro 6:16-19  

 

Luk 15:2-7: "And the Pharisees and scribes grumbled, saying, ‘This One receives sinners and eats with them.’  And He spoke this parable to them, saying,

‘What man among you, having a hundred sheep, and having lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the one which is lost until he finds it?  And having found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing.

And having come home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!’

I say to you that in the same way there shall be more joy in the heaven over one sinner repenting, than over ninety-nine righteous ones who need no repentance.’”

Put on love, and go find the lost sheep;  please don’t grumble and persecute one another.

brother Lew

An ex-employee (manager) of this store, Joyce Henderson, sent the following message to all those arguing over this controversy on Facebook:

"As a former employee of Electric Ladyland I can attest that Lew was always an exemplary boss. He always spoke with me about the Torah's sayings and the phone rang off the hook with others wanting to talk with him. The store is not about drug use. It's about a love of music. Not only can he talk to you about his beliefs, he can also talk about Frank Zappa, The Beatles, and more. He NEVER worked on the Sabbath. He's a totally cool guy and I loved working for him. And he even FIRED me. So that's how much respect I have for him."

CYBERBULLYING ISSUE

RE: messianichallofshame.com, 2besaved.com, halleluyahscriptures.com (all unknown identities) 

Several of us have endured cyberbullying for over 4 years now, and have finally decided to disclose what is going on.

I’ve reported certain websites (below) to the Kentucky State Attorney General, as well as the FBI.

Google’s Youtube and the web hosts for the cyberbullying websites have received the complaint (below).

It’s time for us to bring this to the enemy, who has no intention of repenting of their hateful actions toward us.

Messianichallofshame cyberbully reported to web host:

Lunar Pages web host (emailed to abuse@lunarpages.com April 28, 2016)

RE: Hall Of Shame 

Dear sir or madam, 

For the last 4 years I have been shamefully bullied by a website you host: www.messianichallofshame.com

REPORT:

This unidentified person has destroyed not only my reputation with their activities, but also that of at least three others.

The website is dedicated to the destruction of my reputation and business, and is portraying misleading information out of context that is false and misleading.

I have decided to take action to prosecute whoever this person is as soon as their identity is made known, as well as all those giving support to their hateful activities that incite fear and destruction of other's reputations. Their actions meet every criteria of cyberbullying, an international crime.

The other three victims of the cyberbullying may also take action, as I am forwarding a copy of our decision to them.

The FBI has been contacted, and may initiate action against the person or persons responsible for this criminal activity.
Another website we are reporting is http://2besaved.com/  which engaged in the same activities in the same timeframe.

The webhost for this cyberbully is GODADDY.COM, LLC

Tech Email: info@2besaved.com 
Name Server: NS2.LUNARBREEZE.COM 
Name Server: NS1.LUNARBREEZE.COM

In association with, or in fact the same person or persons as 2besaved.com is http://www.halleluyahscriptures.com/

Both of these websites tear-down the reputation of many other translations, which in their time attempted to get the Word of Yahuah correct.

Correcting errors is one thing, but they promote many of the same errors as those they tear down.

Their Halleluyah Scriptures is the same text file as ISR’s The Scriptures, used without permission, with the original script restored for the Name.

Chris Koster’s The Scriptures used the Aramaic script for the Name. 

Brother Chris had missed several blatant errors in the KJV, but corrected as much as he was shown at the time. These errors cascaded into the halleluyahscriptures, the work of Chris Koster. Brother Chris did his best, and acknowledged his work was built on that of others before him. A translator attempts to convey the message as he is led to do by Yahusha's Spirit/Ruach. Sometimes former translational errors are overlooked for others to correct and refine.

Note the evidence of the halleluyahscripture’s translation’s plagiarism at Mt. 26:17, which states the taught ones asked Yahusha where to prepare the passover “on the first day of unleavened bread.”

There are many other examples you can check, such as

“Sun of righteousness” should be “Servant of righteousness” at Mal. 4 – all inherited KJV errors.

Forgiveness is one of the greatest actions we can take toward one another.

We will be forgiven as we forgive others, so this will hopefully end with the healing of all wounded hearts.

But the unrepentant heart will receive no kasid from Yahusha whatsoever; either in this life, or the next.

We pray for all those who are persecuted by others, that Yahusha be with them to reflect love in response to those who are filled with fear and hatred.
