Galatians 1:10 For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ. (NASB)
The modern world is full of deception and lies… from politics to media to science to history… and especially religion. In our churches and synagogues, we were specifically warned against false traditions (embellishments unsupported by Scripture), precepts of men (manufactured theology), and doctrines of demons (assimilated paganism). Few realize the extent of the duplicity; most will think, “Not in my place of worship!” Yet, we are simply deluding ourselves. It is pervasive in modern society, and it commences unconsciously from when a solar system mobile is attached to a crib or when the name “Jesus” is uttered (Matthew 1:1 footnote b).
The answer is found in the Word, yet few make the time for Bible study in the mind-numbing pace of what we call life with its multitude of distractions. Most of us do not think that we can understand the parables, idioms, and eschatological prophecies from the distant past. So, we make a weekly (or semiannual) pilgrimage to our places of worship and have our clergy “tickle the ears;” that path leads to destruction and the Great Apostasy. The Holy Spirit was explicitly sent to be our Helper and Teacher… if we would just take the time and listen.
The purpose of this site is to provide a deeper understanding of our Lord and Savior Joshua the Messiah (Heb. Yehoshu’a HaMashiach/Gr. ‘Iesous Christos)… from His being the firstborn of Creation to His incarnate birth and childhood to His ministry of just over a year and a half to His crucifixion and resurrection to His Second Coming and how these have or will be fulfilled at specific, appointed times. Yes, these topics have been covered ad nauseam by the “early church fathers” and “esteemed theologians and Biblical scholars” but not within the proper context – from a Hebraic perspective from which the Scriptures were intended and recorded – not a Western European whitewashing based upon the antiquated Latin Vulgate or King James (1611) Version. The importance of the Dead Sea Scrolls (DSS) cannot be understated when Christ proclaimed, “I am THE WAY, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me” (emphasis mine). The articles on this site, which form the basis of my forthcoming book Our Messiah Few REALLY Know, are not intended to be a comprehensive compendium; it is simply a touchstone used to start your own journey in discovering The Way (Heb. HaDerech).
If your interest has been piqued, read the Welcome page and scan the Archive. One promise can be made: the Bible will begin to be perceived and understood in the correct Light – once denominational and sectarian blinders are removed. #QuestionEverything
