RELIGION OF TRADITIONS
MEN'S TEACHINGS TURNED ASIDE TO MYTHS
"Proclaim the Word! Be urgent in season, out of season. Reprove, warn, appeal, with all patience and teaching.
For there shall be a time when they shall not bear sound teaching, but according to their own desires they shall heap up for themselves teachers tickling the ear, and they shall indeed turn their ears away from the Truth, and be turned aside to myths.”
– 2Timothy 4:2-4
They did it with food, eating whatever abomination they set eyes on.
The pagan traditions were all adopted as well.
TORAH OR TRADITION?
“Love Me and keep My Commandments.” - Ex 20:6, Dt 5:10
Yahuah is not going to change His Commandments; people do.
Many are confused because they are taught the Ten Commandments are a curse, and done away by being nailed to the stake. It was not the Commandments, but the list of our crimes nailed to the stake. Yahusha became our cheirographon (a Greek legal term for a court document listing accusations against a criminal).
He became sin for us, erasing all the words that stood against us. We are free, and in His power we live by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of Yahuah. He created us to love Him, and His Ten Commandments teach us how to love Him and our neighbor. They are our wedding vows. They are wisdom.
He created us to be His companions.
We cannot expect to be lawless and at the same time be accepted. When we obey another instead, it hurts Him.
He is jealous for our affection.
Nimrod’s religion of traditions breaks the everlasting Covenant.
The Second Coming will wipe-clean the traditions and decisions of all the councils, and we will reboot to the Living Words of Yahuah only. Traditions are so anchored to family and cultural bonds that any attempt to meddle with them is useless.
Yahusha will have to burn the world down to cure the illness.
Yahusha’s Natsarim don't use sacraments and rituals, and Yahusha is our only teaching authority.
Our behavior is vastly different from the fourth beast's religion of traditions. The “traditions of the fathers” was the religion of the Pharisees, and was a very heavy yoke.
Yahusha’s yoke is light, but men have rejected it and invented their own yoke of human traditions in its place.
Most have no idea how far they have fallen away from the Truth.
Natsarim are the repairers of the breach.
We teach the Commandments as written in order to shape hearts with Yahuah's will; love is the outcome.
Yahusha is in charge at all times, and no one gets burned, hung, or judged; He is the only Judge.
We work among those who serve the religion of traditions, but we don't observe those traditions. We are free because we abide in Yahuah's Word, not man’s words.
We cast down strongholds and all false reasoning with the Truth, in love. Yahusha’s yoke sets us free, and we learn to love.
Religion is tradition; but knowing the will of Yahusha is reality. The fruits of His Spirit are evident in those He indwells.
The words of all the councils will pass away, but Yahusha’s Words will never pass away. When we live by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of Yahuah, the yoke of men's teachings are lifted from our shoulders.
We cannot serve both Yahuah and men’s teachings.
If we abide in Yahusha, we will know the Truth, and the Truth will free us from men’s traditions. The mother of harlots is the pattern of the Great Architect: Nimrod.
If we refuse the Truth, we will stand before the Throne of the universe and explain how we chose to live by a non-legalistic belief. We believed the lie, failing to obey. If we walk legally,
Yahuah will be pleased. If we think we can please Him by not obeying Him, we’re deceived and the Truth is not in us. We are ambassadors. It is as if Yahuah Himself is pleading through us to be restored to favor. This is done by obedience, not by just believing.
Even the demons believe.
If we pleaded with them to just believe and live under "grace" and to continue eating ham, working their job on the day we were told to rest, and calling Yahuah by whatever name tradition has taught us to call Him, we live in a delusion. Yahusha is the Living Word, and we are told to walk even as He walked:
“And by this we know that we know Him, if we guard His Commands.
The one who says, ‘I know Him,’ and does not guard His Commands, is a liar, and the Truth is not in him.
But whoever guards His Word, truly the love of Alahim has
been perfected in him.
By this we know that we are in Him:
The one who says he stays in Him ought himself also to
walk, even as He walked.
Beloved, I write no fresh command to you, but an old
Command which you have had from the beginning.” -1Yn 2:3-7
Please wake up. Those who do not live by the Commandments do not know Him, nor
do they belong to Him. Christian doctrines promote sin. To be legal is
thought of as heretical.
Christian doctrines promote sin. To be legal is thought of as heretical.
Unintentional sin (crime) is where "grace" applies. To sin intentionally, while knowing what is right but ignoring it, is where grace does not apply. Ask Yahusha how He wants you to live. If you live the way He wants, you will not live by men’s religion of tradition, and will be shunned by everyone who wants to remain the way they are. The light exposes the darkness.
YOKE: A BODY OF TEACHINGS
Do we have freedom to disobey the Commandments of Yahuah, to do things Yahuah calls an abomination? Our freedom is from the traditions of men. Yahusha was critical of the traditions, not the Torah. Yahusha calls the teachings of men “leaven.”
He was not critical of the Pharisees because they obeyed the Commandments, but because they disobeyed them and made men's traditions their commandments. Yahusha’s words prove this at Mt. 15:7-9:
“Hypocrites! YashaYahu (Isaiah) rightly prophesied about you, saying, ‘This people draw near to Me with their mouth, and respect Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. But in vain (futility) do they worship Me, teaching as teachings the commands of men.’ ”
Many teachers of the religion of traditions need to understand that Yahuah is looking for obedient servants, yet they have been teaching everyone to disobey.
A yoke is a body of teachings.
The yoke described in Galatians and Mt. 16: men's traditions.
Most teachers misidentify the yoke being discussed, thinking it refers to the Ten Commandments.
This will explain Paul’s reference which Catholics and Protestant teachers still twist.
REPAIRERS OF THE BREACH
Men's religion of traditions has the whole world confused.
Natsarim are Yahusha's repairers of the breach of the Covenant.
The Commandments were not "nailed to the stake," but rather the list of our crimes (cheirographon).
PAUL’S FORMER WAY - Gal 1:13, 14:
“For you have heard of my former way of life in Yahudaism,
how intensely I persecuted the body of Alahim, and ravaged it.
And I progressed in Yahudaism beyond many of my age in my race, being exceedingly ardent for the traditions of my fathers.”
This yoke was not the Torah of Mosheh; it was the traditions of the fathers. Now we can understand what this means:
Act 15:10: “Now then, why do you try Alahim by putting a yoke on the neck of the taught ones which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?”
The yoke (teachings) of the traditions of the fathers was keeping men from calling on the Name of Yahuah, and giving praise to their own authority and decisions.
The wisdom of men is falsely called knowledge.
Gnosticism and Nimrod’s star-religion has spread everywhere.
WHAT IS LEAVEN?
“‘How is it that you do not understand that I did not speak to you concerning bread, but to beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees?’ Then they understood that He did not say to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the teaching of the Pharisees and the Sadducees." - Mt. 16:11, 12
Question: What is the leaven, or yeast of the Pharisees?
Answer: Rabbinic Judaism, the traditions of the fathers.
Yahuah’s feast of Matsah (Unleavened Bread) trains us each year to recognize the moldy leaven of men’s corrupt teachings, and get rid of it.
People are taught to avoid obeying anything Yahuah told us to
do. Instead, they are taught to live by traditions inherited from
pagans. They do not live by every Word that proceeds from the
mouth of Yahuah (Mt. 4:4).
They don’t live by any Word of Yahuah.
Yahusha’s statement at Mt. 4:4 sums-up His criticism of those
leading His people both then and now.
Being a teacher of Torah rather than tradition, Yahusha was the
counterculture of His time. Today, His Natsarim are the same.
We reject and expose the religion of traditions. Scripture does not
justify traditions, or give excuses for disobeying.
Traditions program us to keep doing things we want to do
in defiance of Yahuah's Word. If we live in disobedience, He will
not allow us to call on His Name. This is why His true Name is
rejected. Other names come through very well:
Mikal is Michael, Danial is Daniel, and shatan is satanas when we
examine the Hebrew-to-Greek; yet the Name of our Deliverer is
falsely believed to be Jesus. This form first appeared on Earth in
the KJV, based on IESV in the Latin Vulgate.
Yahusha means “I am your Deliverer.” What is Jesus intended to
Transliterating names is not concerned with meanings at all, only
sounds. Yahuah tells us those who teach us are blind, and the
cause for this is explained at YashaYahu (Is.) 8:20.
They don't teach or focus on the Commandments of love, but they
expect everyone to tithe to them. Why more people don't see this
is a very curious thing. What exactly is "every Word that
proceeds from the mouth of Yahuah?”
Christianity's New Name For Zeus
Yahusha's only Name is Hebrew, not Greek IESOUS or Latin IESV. The languages of Greek and Latin are used to misdirect.
The sus endings in the Greek names Parnassus, Tarsus,
Dionysus, or Pegasus are directly associated with the name Zeus.
To defend the false name JESUS, men will resort to everything but the Hebrew as they struggle to defend the lie. Zeus is a form of the babbled name for Nimrod, the first man worshiped as a mighty-one.
Transliterating names is mainly about bringing the sound of a name across, so grammar rules people may use as a defense have nothing to do with it.
Every Sun deity’s name is another way to babble the name of Nimrod, and inherited from his original worship of the host of heaven.
Hearing the name Zeus made it easy to assimilate the masses into the modified religion, Christianity, which itself is a Greek word. Originally it meant “simpleton” or “idiot.”
Although the word “Christianity” is not found in Scripture, the word “christianos” is used in three instances. In that day, it was a label used to describe a person who was gullible, retarded, or foolish.
Christianos is the origin of our modern word cretin.
ORIGIN OF THE WORD CHRISTIAN
XPISTIANOS Found 3 times in the Received Text (NT).
The term Christian was used by the Greek culture several hundred years before Yahusha’s birth in Bethlehem.
Rome (Italy) and Alexandria (Egypt) were the western world’s primary repositories of knowledge.
A merger of ancient Egyptian, Greek, and Roman cultures took place from 300 BCE to 200 CE, and Christianity emerged from it.
The Greek deity Serapis replaced Osiris as the consort of Isis, and the devotees of this deity were called “Christians.”
Hadrian (Roman emperor 117 to 138) built the Pantheon (temple to all gods) using concrete to form the world’s largest domed structure (domes are a pagan design).
He wrote that Serapis and IESU were the same deity.
This is syncretism, and when it catches on, it becomes tradition. People serve traditions with ferocious zeal.
Confusion and syncretism between pagan cultures at Rome and Alexandria continued into the 4th century CE.
The Alexandrian cult, or church fathers, worked feverishly to synthesize paganism with the Messianic movement, hatching their brand under the Serapis’ followers’ name, Christians, who occupied the city for centuries before them.
The followers of Yahusha were called Natsarim (branches, watchmen, guardians – see Acts 24:5). We guard (shamar) the Name and the Word. To the Greeks, the impaled Mashiak is foolishness (1 Cor. 1:23), so the Greek term “xpristianos” (meaning idiot) seemed appropriate to them.
The Greek term christianos in that day was a term foisted on them, causing suffering as Peter writes about it at 1 Peter 4:15-16.
No one would ever want to be labeled a murderer, thief, doer of evil, or meddler. Nor would they wish to be known as an idiot or “cretin.”
Look at the context of this rarely-used term, christianos:
“For do not let any of you suffer as a murderer, or thief, or doer of evil, or as a meddler.
But if (one suffers) as a xpistianos, let him not be ashamed, but let him esteem Alahim in this matter.” – 1 Peter 4:15-16
Some say the word xpistianos should be used only as an adjective: “Christian faith.”
But in truth, it became used as a pronoun to denigrate and shame the Natsarim. It was a term of contempt and scorn.
If you look up the origin of the word cretin, you’ll see the Greek source is xpistianos.
We should never call one another such a term. It means an idiot, but revisionism has caused mass-amnesia.
Google the term cretin and you’ll see
how tradition has caused us to accept a false impression – a delusion.
Tradition has momentum. It’s a heavy bundle of men's ideas that pass forward into future generations. The only way to stop tradition is to burn it down. That day of burning is near.
Nimrod’s reign of Babel will fall on the Day of Yahuah.
MISDIRECTING WITH VOWELS
Teachers, even translators, are often heard to say “Hebrew had no written vowels.” This statement is seen in some translations. When someone declares this, we should guide them into more accuracy of the Truth. The Hebrew letters alef, ayin, yod, hay, and uau are obvious vowels, and were inherited into the Greek, Latin, and modern English. We use them all the time as AEIOU.
According to Yusef Ben MatithYahu (Flavius Josephus) the Name “Yahuah” is written in four Hebrew letters, yod-hay-uau-hay.
He claimed to have seen the headpiece of the High Priest, and said the Name was written in Hebrew in four vowels.
Antiochus Epiphanes opposed Torah. He tortured and executed whole families of Yahudim for observing Shabath, refusing to eat pork, or generally obeying Torah.
This anti-Torah attitude became worldwide after Constantine's Christianity spread into the whole Earth.
Yahusha's way of living is completely opposed by every pulpit still, and now His Natsarim are crying out in the nations to announce the message of AliYahu (see Malaki 4:1-6).
EARS TURNED AWAY FROM TRUTH
“For there shall be a time when they shall not bear sound teaching, but according to their own desires, they shall heap up for themselves teachers tickling the ear, and they shall indeed turn their ears away from the Truth, and be turned aside to myths.” - 2Tim 4:3-4
COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE!
Nimrod’s magisterium is the source from which Protestants have inherited many of their doctrines and behavior. The belief in "one god in three persons" defines Catholicism according to Athanasius, one of the attendees of the Nicene Council in 325. Athanasius was from Alexandria's Didascalia (teaching authority), and is dubbed the "father of orthodoxy."
Ortho-doxy literally means “upright teaching.”
Natsarim throughout history were considered heretics by this teaching authority, and were held to be anathema (worthy of death). Today we are called “legalists.”
Natsarim work to teach the Truth, and reject the teaching authority of the magisterium, and all those following its rebellious practices.
OBEDIENCE PERFECTS BELIEF, BUT MEN’S TEACHINGS ARE LEAVEN, CORRUPTING THE HEARTS (WINESKINS) OF THE DECEIVED.
Those who refuse to receive a love for the Truth are sent a
strong delusion (2Thess 2:1-12).
Hebrews 11 shows us it is impossible to please Yahuah
without amunah (faithfulness).
Our amunah is perfected by obedience. Hebrews 11 gives
many examples of how those having amunah acted on their
belief in Yahuah by obeying Him. Note Revelation 12.
The first-fruits are those who obey the Commandments, and hold to the testimony of Yahusha.
There are many false teachers and deceiving spirits in the world.
If you abide in His Word, you are truly His, and you will know the Truth, and be set free from men, and the reign of the beast. (BABEL)
