TRUTH OVER LIES DAILY

Q: I have a question: Is it sinful to turn pagan traditions into holy traditions? Like change the meaning of something that was evil, and make it good? Would that be a way of setting it apart?

A: No not if the pagan tradition is idolatry. Idolatry is not redeemable, its only REPENTABLE.

If the pagan tradition is not sacrificed or dedicated to idolatry, then there’s no conflict with the Kingdom. If it’s just something natural and common, then it can go either way.

Scriptures teach us to “Learn not the way of the Heathen.”
Jeremiah 10: 2 Thus saith the LORD, LEARN NOT THE WAY OF THE HEATHEN, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. 3 For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. 4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.

Deuteronomy 12: 29 When the LORD thy God shall cut off the nations from before thee, whither thou goest to possess them, and thou succeedest them, and dwellest in their land; 30 Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou ENQUIRE NOT AFTER THEIR GODS, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? EVEN SO WILL I DO LIKEWISE.

Many of the most egregious errors and sins in the Kingdom of God have come when people have tried to serve God in the way prescribed by the ungodly.

For instance: covetousness and greed is idolatry.

How do you feel when you see TV preachers getting rich off the backs of the poor for Jesus, by promising the poor Carnal riches?

How do you feel when the TV preacher “redeems” his covetousness by making it “for Jesus”? Or “for the gospel”?

But then we turn around and make EXCUSES for our FAVORITE FORM OF IDOLATRY because we can “redeem it” for the gospel, or “redeem it” for Jesus.

The Scriptures teach that Idolatry can simply be Worshipping God in the wrong Way.

Exodus 32:8 They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

1 Corinthians 10:7 Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.

When the children of Israel went into idolatry, they were still worshipping.

They simply just decided to worship the gods that brought them out of Egypt in the wrong way. Doing things the way God has commanded is very important in worship.

1 Corinthians 11: 19 What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing?20 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, THEY SACRIFICE TO DEVILS, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have FELLOWSHIP WITH DEVILS.21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.22 Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? ARE WE STRONGER THAN HE?

When Gentiles worship idols, they are really worshipping devils. Therefore what the world is doing is a sacrifice to an idol, don’t go with them. Don’t copy them.

We are not smarter or wiser or stronger or better at reaching people than Jesus.

Jesus is not jealous of our clever strategic ways we come up with to reach people for Him.

We are not stronger than Him. He’s smarter and stronger than us.

His ways are better than our ways, and our ways are FAILURE when we disobey His ways.

For example:
Roman Catholicism: took all the pagan rituals and made them Christian. Saturnalia was one of the wicked and idolatrous festivals that pagan’s had developed according to the signs of the heavens (see above scripture Jeremiah 10:2).

The problem with the Roman Catholic church turning Saturnalia into Christ’s mass is that the Roman Catholic church is pagan itself and is full of idolatry. It’s full of the spirit of antichrist. In the end, the fruit is what proves it out.

The fruit of “redeeming” pagan idolatry has proven to be rotten over time. But unfortunately the same people that think they are “smarter and stronger” than the Lord are not wise enough to observe their fruit for a long enough time to tell that it is rotten.

We have a New Covenant with Yah through His Son Yashua (aka Jesus the Messiah) and we have a New and Living way to serve the Father. Kingdom Gospel, Kingdom Commandments, and Kingdom Ordinances. Let’s do that and stay away from idols.

“Try Jesus, but Don’t Try Me”

“Try Jesus, but Don’t Try Me.”
“Holy But still Hood.”
“Righteous but Ratchet.”

None of these arrogant anti-christ statements have anything to do with self defense.

Are You Tougher than Jesus? No.
Are You Wiser than Jesus? No.
Is the Wrath of God Weaker than Yours? Is Jesus Soft Now? No.

Do you still have demons that you can’t get rid of? Yes.
Is Jesus going to protect and coddle your demons the way you do? No.

Repent or Jesus will destroy you. Put that on your t-shirt. Sing that.

TRUTH OVER LIES DAILY

Q: Were there seasons such as winter summer spring fall in the garden prior to the fall of man?

A: Cool question 😂 I don’t believe that it was winter in the garden where Adam and Eve were… it seems like it would be a tropical climate there because they had no clothing. I do believe there was winter in other places in the earth.

1. Because Genesis 8:22 Yah says that the cold/heat, winter/summer will not cease. It seems as if it was a continuation of what had been going on already.

2. The other things that Yah listed in that Scripture come from the Creation, not from the fall.

3. The seasons are based on the rotation of the sun around the earth which was established in Genesis 1 – where the Sun ruled the day and the Moon ruled the night.

Here’s a few more resources on the logic and science behind Scriptural Cosmology.

CAN I EAT UNCLEAN CREATURES? #TOLD

CAN I EAT UNCLEAN CREATURES?
#TOLD
TRUTH OVER LIES DAILY

Q: Why does Paul tell Timothy that we can eat every creature? Does that cancel out God’s clean and unclean food laws in the Old Testament?

A: Look at the Scripture in Context… Notice how its connected to FORBIDDING to MARRY, and COMMANDING to abstain from meats.

1 Timothy 4: 3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: 5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.

Who is forbidden to MARRY today? Roman Priests and some other Religious ministers. Who COMMANDS people to abstain from meats? Spiritual leaders are the only people who give commandments such as these.

1st Principle of Sound Biblical Interpretation:

Jesus and the Father agree. 12 and Jesus agree. Paul and Jesus agree.

Anyone that teaches a disagreement between them has a lack of understanding. Peter said that some the writings of Paul were hard to understand, and that ignorant and unlearned people twist Paul’s writings (2 Peter 3:16).

To me this means that it is wise to ONLY interpret Paul’s writings in the lense of what Christ said and did. Instead of TWISTING Paul AWAY from Jesus, interpret Paul ACCORDING to what Jesus SAID and DID.

What did Jesus say?
Luke 10: 7 And in the same house remain, EATING AND DRINKING SUCH THINGS AS THEY GIVE: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house.
8 And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, EAT SUCH THINGS AS ARE SET BEFORE YOU:
9 And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

What did Peter say?
Acts 10:28 And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean.

– As an apostle, Paul was coaching Timothy on how to spread the gospel to new lands, especially Gentile lands. Timothy was an apostle also. THIS IS KEY to understanding.

– Yashua had already told His Apostles to spread the gospel to Gentiles. He had already told them that no poison shall harm them, and if they drink ANY DEADLY THING it shall not harm them.

– Christ had already taught that Spreading the gospel involves eating with friendly and peaceful hosts in different cities. That means DIFFERENT CULTURES.

– God gave Peter a vision to rise and eat unclean animals as a symbol of preaching and converting a Gentile household. This meant that Gentile people were clean in the gospel (Acts 10). This does NOT mean that God had suddenly recreated unclean foods. It means that HE CLEAN’S PEOPLE’S HEARTS.

– The Hebrews tended to have PRIDE in their separation from Gentile eating habits. This was a HINDRANCE TO THE GOSPEL. (Galatians 2)

– Even Peter himself had to be challenged by Paul for being a HYPOCRITE and separating himself from eating with Gentile Believers.

Galatians 2:11 But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed. 12 For before that certain came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision.

– PRIDE is also an iniquity of the heart that Jews tended to be filled with, and unfortunately MANY still are.

– Being able to preach the gospel house to house without having a laundry list of eating stipulations was ESSENTIAL TO SPREADING THE GOSPEL. This is why Jesus taught His Apostles when they travel to preach: “Eat what they put before you.”

– This DOES NOT mean that God’s Natural Creation Laws were void or canceled! It doesn’t mean that believers had to throw away God’s wisdom and start buying pork and shrimp and lobster and snake meat for their families.

– This is NOT AN INSTRUCTION to purposefully bring poison into our homes or to purposefully harm our bodies’ health by eating unclean food.

– IT DOES MEAN that as you are traveling and visiting with people of other cultures to preach the gospel; even if you happened to eat unclean, or tainted food, God will preserve your health for the sake of the gospel and also not offending the KIND AND PEACEFUL GENTILE that is BEING HOSPITABLE to you the best way he knows how!

– This doesn’t cancel God’s wisdom laws or His creation design laws. It only makes it EASIER TO SPREAD THE GOSPEL IN THE WAY MESSIAH COMMANDED by focusing on being acceptable to hospitality when eating house to house with peaceable Gentiles (Galatians, Acts 15).

– Don’t make FOOD a BARRIER TO THE GOSPEL.

– THIS CUTS TO THE HEART of the STUCK UP and PRIDEFUL JEWS/HEBREWS because it humbled them to let them know that the New Covenant Gospel was more important than their God-given natural wisdom. This was very hard for Jews, even Believing Jews. PRIDE is a beast.

– In essence, we DON’T NEED TO JUDGE PEOPLE on what they eat and make that the biggest deal.

– There is still a WISDOM FACTOR in Creation Law, but it’s not the most important thing in life.

– PREACH THE GOSPEL FIRST. Then help people out with natural law and creation wisdom later.

-This is why Apostle John distinguished between sin that is not unto death (sins against natural law) and sins that are unto death (sins against moral law).

Even though both ARE STILL SINS, we treat them differently.

1 John 5: 16 If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it. 17 All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.

– Natural sins we pray for people first, and share wisdom when needed.
– Moral sins we preach against, so that people can repent.

IN SUMMARY:

The New Covenant was designed to be spread 2 Ways:
1. Through Apostolic Gospel Preaching in the Order of Yashua.
2. Through Believing Family Discipleship via Elders in Congregations of Yashua.

Paul knew by the Holy Spirit that Gentile ROMANIZERS were going to prevent the spreading of the true gospel by causing MINISTERS to be celibate (not raising their own families).

This is why Roman Catholic priests cannot marry.

Paul also knew that Hebrew JUDAIZERS were going to prevent the spreading of the gospel by causing the MINISTERS to resist fellowship and eating with Gentiles when they couldn’t control the menu.

This is why many Jews/Jewish Judaizers still use their cultural wisdom as a barrier to the ministry of the gospel of Jesus.

Now let’s look at the whole scripture again – and now you can understand why Paul warned Timothy (an APOSTOLIC MINISTER):

1 Timothy 4: 1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall DEPART FROM THE FAITH, giving heed to SEDUCING spirits, and doctrines of DEVILS;
2 SPEAKING LIES IN HYPOCRISY; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
3 FORBIDDING TO MARRY, and COMMANDING TO ABSTAIN FROM MEATS, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

TRUTH OVER LIES DAILY

Q: If you can’t mentally and physically work but you can’t afford to quit what should you do? Word base. Thanks bro

A: Hey thanks for your question… If you can’t physically work you should get support from your family or your congregation. Mentally there is always a way to work unless you are brain dead.

However our families and our congregations can encourage us, help us, and support us if we are both physically and mentally weak for a season, or disabled.

But ultimately as we get stronger, and as we serve our families and serve our congregations, our servanthood “muscles” will grow and we can then get back to working jobs for ourselves and supporting others.

Acts 20:35 I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.

1 Thessalonians 5:14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men.

Isaiah 35:8 And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.
9 No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:
10 And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

Why were the Early Believers Called Followers of the Way?

Jesus is the Way to the Throne
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Hebrews 10:19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;

Jesus has a Narrow Way to Eternal Life in the Kingdom

Matthew 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Holy Spirit is not just a Gift Giver. He has Requirements. His first name is HOLY. He leads you on the Way of Holiness.

Healing and Rest is in the Way

Jeremiah 6:14 They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace. 15 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the Lord. 16 Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.

Ephesians 4: 14 That we henceforth be NO MORE CHILDREN, TOSSED TO AND FRO, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning CRAFTINESS, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
15 But SPEAKING THE TRUTH IN LOVE, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

2 Chronicles 34:2 And he DID that which was right in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the ways of David his father, and declined neither to the right hand, nor to the left.

The right exalts their philosophies and thoughts above Yahs thoughts.

The left exalts their strategies and ways above Yahs ways.

Isaiah 55:7 Let the wicked FORSAKE HIS WAY and the unrighteous man HIS THOUGHTS: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

My thoughts are not your thoughts. – They are higher.
My ways are not your ways. – They are higher.

Men of God?

If the Commandments of God are optional, what kind of foundation does that set for our family culture?

Are our thoughts now above His thoughts? Have our ways now become higher than His ways?

What will be the future results?

Rev 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints, that keep the Commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

Legalism vs Lawlessness

Did you know that neither the word “legalist” or “legalism” is in the Scriptures?
However the word “lawless” and “lawless one” is described in the bible with the Spirit of Antichrist and man of Sin.
The Law of the Lord is PERFECT. Converting the Soul. – Psalms 19.
But we know that the Law is GOOD, if a man use it lawfully. – 1 Timothy 1:9.

What most people interpret as “legalists” were actually “Judaizers” who tried to preach salvation through the Abrahamic and/or Mosaic Covenant and Israelite Culture (circumcision, feast days, food, jewish fables).
However those things have nothing to do with the Perfect Law of Liberty aka the 10 Commandments – the Moral Law of God.
Deuteronomy 5:22 These words the Lord spake unto all your assembly in the mount out of the midst of the fire, of the cloud, and of the thick darkness, with a great voice: AND HE ADDED NO MORE. And HE WROTE THEM IN TWO TABLES OF STONE, and delivered them unto me.
Beware lest you become “LAWLESS” in your fight against God’s PERFECT LAW of LIBERTY – which is GOOD when used LAWFULLY.
You can call it legalism all you want, but that’s a fight you’re guaranteed to lose, and you will pay a high price. Your arms are too short to box with God. Keep His Commandments.

Revelation 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

Who is Actually Semetic?

Semetic = Afro-Asiatic = Northeast Africa & Asia Minor = Hebrew and Other Semitic Nationalities = Abraham, Isaac & Jacob are Descendants of Shem

Remember that Jacob’s Sons all married Canaanite women (Daughters from Ham). Therefore Israelites are the very DEFINITION of Afro-Asiatic and are still descendants of Shem. Check your Bibles! It’s all in there!

It’s not Anti-Semetic to point out that Askenazi Jewish are Gentiles descendants from Eurasia – it’s just common sense!

When you preach against Muslims that deny Christ, you’re an “apologist.”

But when you preach against Jew-ish that deny Christ, you’re “anti-Semitic.”

This is Strong Delusion!

1 John 2:22 WHO IS A LIAR but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is ANTICHRIST, that denieth the Father and the Son.

I love my Muslim neighbor just like I love my Jewish neighbor – but I also Love Truth.

Believe it or not there’s a growing generation of Ashkenazi Jewish that are completely aware of their own history.

They know they are actually European. (Looks like a duck, talks like a duck, scientific research, historical testimony says it’s a duck…. so… it’s a duck).

They know they are not the original North African Judeans of the Scriptures. They know their ancestors converted to Judaism a long time ago.

They are okay with that.
Why aren’t you?

We love them and preach the gospel to them.
Why don’t you?

Many of them will repent and believe the gospel of Yashua and they will worship The Most High with us.
When will you?

Revelation 3:9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

Jeremiah 16:19 O Lord, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the GENTILES SHALL COME UNTO THE FROM THE ENDS OF THE EARTH, and shall say, Surely OUR FATHERS HAVE INHERITED LIES, VANITY, AND things wherein there is NO PROFIT.
