SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN - THOSE WHO CLAIM TO BE WORSHIPPERS OF YAH (YAHUDIM) BUT ARE NOT
Christianity briefly compared with the Natsarim
ONE OF THESE IS A VERY NARROW ROAD, THE OTHER IS VERY WIDE
ONE OF THEM IS WHAT REVELATION 2:9 CALLS THE SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN
CHRISTIANITY: Synagogue of Shatan
"Synagogue" is a Greek word meaning "congregation". It's a general term that applies to any gathering, but we have the impression today it refers to unbelieving folks that practice a religion of the Pharisees called "Judaism". The Natsarim met together in the same congregations with other members of the commonwealth of Yisharal (Israel), and many were gentiles who were learning about Yahuah and His Torah. A "worshipper of Yah" is the meaning of the term "Yahudim", and may not necessarily apply to their lineage. Paul was a descendant of Benyamin, MatithYahu (Matthew) was Luite, and many of Yahusha's students were of various other tribes. In the 1st century there was a division, or "parting" of ways and Torah-observance was taxed by the Roman government throughout the empire. (see www.fossilizedcustoms.com/partingways.html)
Christianity is a hybrid religion based on many of the teachings of Yahusha ha'Mashiak, but not the same religion He taught. It is a mixture of the Torah of Yahuah with customs from Babylonian Paganism. Christianity is a way of life about the Mashiak of Israel, divided into thousands of sects over interpreting the Torah, with special days of the year adopted from Satanic, Pagan origins. ALL Yahuah-commanded feast days are neglected (see Lev. 23, Deut. 16). A system of beliefs based on Mashiak, but acting in ignorance, through tradition, their customs stem from Pagan symbols and observances. Several centuries after the original students of Yahusha, the heretical path originally established by Shimon the Magician (Simon Magus) began to overtake the true faith, and eventually Catholicism developed from it. From Rome, an authoritarian organism modeled in the "image" of the Roman beast controlled many nations. Eventually, "daughters" of this system broke away, carrying with them the "mark" of the Sun-day "sabbath". It became the "synagogue of Shatan".
The word "Christianity" is not found in the received text at all, and is not found in any concordance. The practices are a blend of ideas about the Mashiak of Israel, attached to old Pagan observances in order to camouflage them from their origins. It is a monstrosity or hybrid blending of a diverse number of Pagan religions, and the knowledge of this is kept from its adherents. Believing and doing are often separated in its philosophy. Obedience is praised if it fits traditional norms, but condemned if it fits Scriptural instructions. Scripture is divided, and a division exists between the Hebrew / Yahudi (Jew) and the Gentile Christian in terms of what is to be obeyed or ignored in the Torah, based on this difference. So, in their teachings, there is not one body of believers, although this will be denied by most.
The word, Christianity, is not found anywhere in Scripture. Encyclopedias tell us it is a religion, and that it was founded by "Jesus Christ". It was really founded by "Simon Magus", and his tomb is under the altar in "St. Peter's" Cathedral at Rome. The topic of Christianity is not found in Scripture either. What Scripture DOES acknowledge as the "way" is the "WORD OF YAHUAH", and the "TORAH OF YAHUAH". That should be our way; and it is certainly what Yahusha taught -- He didn't teach Christianity. No follower of Yahusha ever taught us anything about Sun-day, Easter, Christmas, popes, nuns, holy water, sacraments, or any separation of Yahusha's body into a "priesthood" and "laity". We are ALL priests on level ground with one another, and He is our High Priest. If you are studying something, and embrace it as a way of living, shouldn't you search it out completely and find where its roots lead? If the root is good, then the fruit it bears will also be good. Christianity is a usurper, and a religion without Hebrew roots -- only Greco-Latin ones. Esau, and his Edomite descendants, were also usurpers. They sought to steal the birthright and promises that were only given to Israel. This is what is at the heart of Replacement Theology.
Christianity, therefore, is like Esau and the Edomites. They modify the Covenant and claim legitimacy.
CHRISTIANITY: Christian practices are a blend of ideas about the Mashiak of Israel, attached to old Pagan observances in order to camouflage them from their origins. Believing and doing are often separated in their philosophy. Obedience is praised if it fits traditional norms, but condemned if it fits Scriptural instructions. Scripture is divided, and a division exists between the Hebrew / Yahudi (Jew) and the Gentile Christian in terms of what is to be obeyed or ignored in the Torah, based on this difference. So, in their teachings, there is not one body of believers, although this will be denied by most. (Christiani, Chreistos, etc., are Greco-Latinisms used in place of the Hebrew word Mashiak, meaning anointed. A good dictionary will show that the word Christian is cognate with CRETIN, an idiot - see definition for cretin. "Christ" and "Christian" are words derived strictly from human conventions, and not the original terms. Popularity of this term is solely the work of translators).
NATSARIM: Those given a love of the Creator’s Name, and His Covenant 10 Commandments, the Torah. They follow the “way” or “walk” of the Mashiak Yahusha, staying faithful to the Covenant without alteration, having received a love of the Torah in their hearts by the indwelling of the Spirit of the Mashiak. Beliefs and actions are the same thing in their view, and they serve the one whom they are obeying. Scripture is not divided, and all believers are united in the Mashiak under one law, and are all one body. (You will find the term Natsarim at Acts 24:5; Paul was a "ringleader" of this sect).
These observations are intended to evoke a response. Hopefully it will challenge and stimulate individuals to think and do research, as we see Daniel 12 tells us would happen (Dan. 12:4). Do not presume to defy the children of Israel, it is they who the Covenant is with; Gentiles must engraft into Israel to partake (Romans 11).
Theologians and those zealous for tradition may want to deny and explain away many things, but at the end of the "day" it will be the Creator's Word and His Covenant we will be believing in, and seeing come to pass. For the past 1900 years, a slow purging of Truth has been occurring, replacing the original "walk" with Gentile-oriented patterns. Like slowly boiling a frog, the alterations were stretched over a long period. It's time to jump out of the hot water folks. Early-on, Gentiles separated themselves from the original believing children of Israel, and have almost completely redesigned the "walk" in order to hi-jack the minds of billions with their "replacement theology". It has been successful, and will remain so until the time of the end (Dan. 11:36), except for the prophecy that at the chosen time in the last days, many would search these things diligently and knowledge would increase. Yahuah is awakening many to His secret (Rev. 10:7, Eph. 3:3-6); He has sown the families of Israel into the Gentiles to hide them, and promised one day to restore them as a faithful remnant.
Remember, northern Israel was carried away (to Assyria) long before southern Israel (to Babylon), and only 10% of those taken to Babylon ever returned. 90% of southern Israel, or Yahudah, remained in Babylon and assimilated, lost to history; but not lost to Yahuah. Northern Israel, the "Samaritans" who were apostate with their 11 Commandments, have never returned to His Covenant; but they will by the Power of Yahuah. Both "houses" of Israel, northern and southern, are essentially sown into the Gentiles. Many of them are Christians right now, but Yahuah is calling them back to His Covenant in their hearts (Eph. 3:1-12, Amos 9:9, Ezek. 37:21). They can spin any imaginary dream they like, then hide it all in a purple haze - but in the end, Sun-day will still not be the Sabbath, the Name of the Creator will not be "The LORD" or "GOD", the Mashiak's Name will still be Yahusha not "Jesus", and claiming a Passover Lamb but never observing Passover will be central to how they have been deceived. Yes, a great deception has been sent forth from Alahim Yahuah to all those who have refused to receive a love for the Truth.
If you are a Christian reading this, I must sound like a heretic and very intolerant of others' beliefs. Beliefs and facts are not always the same thing. I had to tell you because I love you - you're probably family; a remnant Israelite (and please don't let the skin color or geographical distractions confuse you - you could be any color or live anywhere). Even if you're not a dispersed Israelite, you can become one by believing in the Name of Yahusha, and engrafting into Israel through immersion in water as an adopted child. Then keep the Covenant of love, the Torah. One of these two is the "synagogue of Satan", and you need to figure out which one promotes obedience to Yahuah, and which one teaches lawlessness. Please do some personal research and prove these claims to be either right, or wrong. If any of these comments makes you angry or scared, that's fine too; just prove things one way or the other - not to me, but to yourself.
synagogue of Satan: synagogue is a Greek word, meaning "house of study". Satan (Hebrew shatan) means "adversary" and is the accuser of Israel; this is a real, fallen messenger opposed to Yahuah, and is ruling the entire Earth in all religious, political, and mercantile areas. Putting it together, the synagogue of Satan would be any "house of study" which teaches lawlessness or revised commandments. If we can prove that there is a difference between what is written in Yahuah's Word (His Commandments) and what is practiced within a group that claims to worship Yahuah, then we have identified a synagogue of Satan. "Jews" is the word seen in translation at Rev. 2:9, from the Hebrew word "Yahudim", and means "worshippers of Yah". Claiming to worship Yah, but not teaching and practicing His Commandments, shows us who is of this synagogue of Satan.
Our "worship" is really obedience, the doing of what Yahuah expects of us. If we neglect doing what He expects of us, but assume our intentions will serve the same results, then we didn't understand the Fall, the golden calf incident, nor why Qayin's (Cain's) offering was not pleasing to Yahuah. "If you do well, shall you not be accepted?" (Gen. 4:7). Qayin made up his own mind how he was going to worship Yahuah, and what would be the offering. How is Christianity any different? All the Sun-day assemblies, Christmas trees, and Easter baskets in the world will not be acceptable to Yahuah, unless He prescribed them as a form of worshipping Him. So, our simple task is to find out what Yahuah expects, then "do well" so that He will accept our worship of Him. Then, we can expect to hear the words, "Well done , good and faithful servant!" (Mt. 25:21). Doing "the Word" is obeying Him, not adding to it, or taking away from it, or adopting the Pagan cultural background as tradition has done.
The Ten Commandments display was removed from the Alabama Supreme Court building. There was a good reason for the move: You can't post Thou Shalt Not Steal, Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery and Thou Shall Not Lie, in a building full of politicians and lawyers without creating a hostile work environment. ---- from anonymous Email
