How To Get The Most Out Of This Book And Your Scriptures
Though most ministers would not admit this, there are corruptions in Scripture, however, not as originally written or inspired. Scripture forbids adding to or taking away from the original form. Even though most ministers wouldn’t admit this, there are corruptions in the Scriptures, however, not as originally written or inspired.
Jeremiah 8:8, Amplified Topical Bible, Deuteronomy 4:2 & Deuteronomy 12:32, Proverbs 30:6, 2 Peter 1:20, Revelation 22:18-19
Jeremiah 8:8 How can you say, We are wise and we have the written law of the Master (and are learned in its language and teachings)? Behold the truth is, the lying pen of the scribes has made of the law a falsehood (a mere code of ceremonial observances).
Deuteronomy 4:2 Do not add to the Word which I command you, and do not take away from it, so as to guard the commands of Elohim which I am commanding you.
Deuteronomy 12:32 All the words I am commanding you, guard to do it – do not add to it nor take away from it.
Proverbs 30:6 Do not add to His words, Lest he reprove you, and you be found a liar.
2 Peter 1:20 knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture came to be of one’s own interpretation.
Revelation 22:18 For I witness to everyone hearing the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to them, Elohim shall add to him the plagues that are written in this book
Revelation 22:19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, Elohim shall take away his part from the Book of Life, and out of the set-apart city, which are written in this Book.
So how does one understand Scripture? Scripture interprets Scripture, here a little and there a little.
Isaiah 28:9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? And whom shall He make to understand doctrine? Them that are weaned from the milk and draws from the breasts.
Isaiah 28:10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line: here a little and there a little.
We do not personally interpret Scripture. Scriptures interpret Scriptures – here a little and there a little. This Scripture is very accurate if one goes to the trouble to search it out.
John 10:35 If He called them Elohim, to whom the word of Elohim came – and it is impossible for the Scripture to be broken.
The word (God) is actually Elohim which has three meanings; singular and plural in Genesis where both are used at Creation for the Father and the Son. Later, it is used to mean a judge in Israel. The Scripture cannot be broken. It is like a giant picture puzzle. You cannot force a piece in a place where it does not belong to complete the puzzle. It either fits or it does not. Any word, topic or doctrine, must fit with all the other words on the same subject. If it does not fit, it is either a corruption or was not in the original text.
Is Scripture your authority or source for truth, or are you part of the Yeah but crowd – rejecting certain doctrines because they are too hard or uncomfortable for you? This is what I call selective obedience. I feel sorry for you. Many will learn this the hard way.
Many famous and wise people have recognized the authority and power of the Scriptures.
Abraham Lincoln said “I believe the bible is the best gift (“god”) has given to man.”
George Washington said, “It is impossible to rightly govern the world without (god) and the bible.”
Napoleon said, “The Bible is no mere book, but a living creature with a power that conquers all that oppose it.”
Horace Greely said, “It is impossible to enslave mentally or socially a bible-reading people. The principles of the bible are the groundwork of human freedom.”
Andrew Jackson said, “That book, sir, is the rock on which our republic rests.”
My own personal feelings about Scripture are as follows: The books are Love Letters to His children and an instruction manual on how to live a happy, joyous, healthy, and prosperous life, both now and for all eternity.
Here is what Scripture says about itself:
John 17:17 Set them apart in Your truth – Your Word is truth.”
We are set apart by the power of His Word. It is truth. We either believe and live by the words of our Savior or we don’t.
Hebrews 6:18 so that by two unchangeable matters in which it is impossible for Elohim to lie, we might have strong encouragement, we who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the expectation set before us.
Hebrews 6:19 which we have as an anchor of the life, both safe and firm, and entering into that within the veil.
Hebrews 6:20 where Elohim has entered as a forerunner for us, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek, Our Creator keeps His own laws. His own nature and character are perfect and cannot be altered.
John 8:32 and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
The truth makes us free – free from what? It frees us from the darkness, the deceit of Satan, and the consequences of the sin of this world.
As you go through the pages of this book, you will see that all most every facet of our society and culture is a lie.
Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was thrown out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan who leads all the world astray. He was thrown to the earth, and his messengers were thrown out with him.
This statement seems incomprehensible and unbelievable, yet it is one of the truest verses in all the Scriptures.
In the books of Genesis through Revelation, one of the most prevailing themes in Scripture, is that there is a false system of worship and a true system of worship. We are all free moral agents (one of His greatest gifts He has given to us) and we are told to “choose” and to “prove.”
Deuteronomy 30:19 I have called the heavens and the earth as witnesses today against you: I have set before you life and death, the blessing, and the curse. Therefore, you shall choose life, so that you live, both you and your seed.
Deuteronomy 30:20 to love Elohim, to obey His voice, and to cling to Him – for He is your life and the length of your days – to dwell in the land which Elohim swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.”
This is a historical announcement given to all Israel and applies to us today.
1 Thessalonians 5:21Prove all things, hold fast that which is good.
This is our responsibility. It is simple. Don’t believe me, believe it because you can prove it from the pages of your Scriptures. The Scriptures are approximately one-third history that can be proven by the pure science of archaeology, one-third prophecy, which in some cases is already fulfilled and is being fulfilled right before our very eyes today or will be fulfilled very soon, and one-third teaches us how to live healthy, happy, prosperous, and righteous lives in understanding and obeying the Scriptures. This becomes simpler and easier when we get our own human nature out of the way and surrender to His will and not our own. When it comes to understanding and obeying the Scriptures, human reasoning and rationalizing is deadly.
Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death. Proverbs 16:25 There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death. Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in Elohim with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.
Our own understanding is our own carnal nature. It is not the mind of Messiah.
Philippians 2:5 For let this mind be in you which was also in Messiah.
Isaiah 55:8 For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, declares Elohim.
Isaiah 55:9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.
Our heavenly Father is very plain about how He wants to be worshiped.
John 4:23 But the hour is coming and now is when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father also does seek such to worship Him.
John 4:24 Elohim is Spirit, and those who worship Him need to worship in spirit and truth. Most mainstream religions do not want to do that! They are caught up in the traditions of men and pagan customs.
Our Messiah says we can worship Him in vain.
Matthew 7:21 Not everyone who says to Me, “Master, Master” shall enter into the reign of the heavens, but he who is doing the desire of My Father in the heavens.
Matthew 7:22 Many shall say to Me in that day, Master, Master, have we not prophesied in Your Name, and cast out demons in Your Name, and done many mighty works in Your Name?
Matthew 7:23 And then I shall declare to them, “I never knew you, depart from Me, you who work lawlessness! Here He is referring to those who are lawless or live in iniquity and believe the law is done away.
Commandments of men are false doctrines that cannot be proven or found in Scripture.
Matthew 15:6 Whosoever honors not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of Elohim of none effect by your tradition.
Matthew 15:7 Ye hypocrites, well did Isaiah prophesy of you saying,
Matthew 15:8 This people draweth nigh unto Me with their mouth, and honoreth Me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
Matthew 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
At this point, I need to encourage you to also read the rest of my website “Yah’s Assembly.org. I will often refer to it because it is a compilation of fifty years of study which includes 25 plus years in the ministry. Everything is well researched with substantiations by Scripture too lengthy to put in this book. My next statement will draw a lot of flack by people that can not handle the truth. They are very comfortable in their Recreational Christianity – which is the social club and the commercialization of the business of religion.
See what the Laodicean attitude really displays:
Revelation 3:14 And to the messenger of the assembly in Laodicean write, The Amen, the Trustworthy and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of Elohim, says this:
Revelation 3:15 I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I would that you were cold or hot.
Revelation 3:16 So because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I am going to vomit you out of My mouth.
Revelation 3:17 Because you say, “Rich I am, and I am made rich and need none at all, and do not know that you are wretched, and pitiable, and poor, and blind, and naked.
Revelation 3:18 I advise you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire so that you become rich, and white garments, so that you become dressed so that the shame of your nakedness might not be shown; and anoint your eyes with ointment, so that you see.
Isaiah 58:1 Cry aloud, do not spare. Lift up your voice like the shophar. Declare to My people their transgression, and the house of Israel their sins. I am not trying to be contentious, nor do I have much time to debate Scripture.
Titus 3:9 But keep away from foolish questions, and genealogies, and strife and quarrels about the Torah, for they are unprofitable and useless.
1 Thessalonians 5:21 Prove them (Scriptures) all. Hold fast to what is good.
Have you ever really studied for yourself all the customs and pagan doctrines of the “Churches” or their origins and history – or do you just take other people’s word for it? Human nature is very lazy when it comes to politics and religion. It is much easier for people to be told what to think than to think for themselves! They are “Lambs to the Slaughter!” Scripture tells us over and over again – prove choose and study – be like the Bereans.
Acts 17:10 And the brothers immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Bertoia, who having come, went into the congregation of the Jews.
Acts 17:11 Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.
Constantine was a Sun-worshiper. Messiah was born in the fall. The guy in the red suit has nothing to do with truth or the Messiah’s birth. Remember what vain worship is.
Matthew 15:9 But in vain do they worship Me, teaching as teachings the commands of men.
These are not my words – but your Saviors’ words saying this. Most people of “faith” believe it is wrong to tell a lie. So why then, is it OK to live one? Isn’t that hypocritical?
We live in a world of confusion and lies: fake news, controlled opposition, etc. Lenin said, “There is going to be opposition so we may as well control it.” That does not make it all untrue, but simply manipulated or spun to Satan’s advantage. The Scriptures are the most reliable source of truth there is, even though they have been tampered with.
The Scriptures are His inspired Word, and the core message comes through loud and very clear – “There is a Creator of heaven and earth. He also created man for a reason that very few people understand, and we have a Savior to deliver us from our sins before we destroy this planet and ourselves.
Winston Churchill once said, “Men often stumble over the truth, and get up and go on as though nothing ever happened!” Do not be one of those people. If you want to get the most out of this book, study, pray, fast, meditate, search, and prove the Truth in every way you can. Please do not believe me. Believe it because you can prove it on your in the Scriptures.
History and True Science substantiate the truth of the Scriptures. So, who am I? I am just a common person like you who the Creator can work through.
1 Corinthians 1:18 For the word of the stake is indeed foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of Elohim.
1 Corinthians 1:19 For it has been written, “I shall destroy the wisdom of the wise, and set aside the learning of the learned ones.”
1 Corinthians 1:20 Where is the wise? Where is the scholar? Where is the debater of this age? Has not Elohim made foolish the wisdom of this world?
1 Corinthians 1:21 For since, in the wisdom of Elohim, the world through wisdom did not know Elohim, it pleased Elohim through the foolishness of preaching to save those who believe.
1 Corinthians 1:22 And since Jews ask for a sign, and Greeks seek wisdom,
1 Corinthians 1:23 yet we proclaim Messiah impaled, to the Jews a stumbling-block and to the Greeks foolishness,
1 Corinthians 1:24 but to those who are called – both of Elohim and the wisdom of Elohim,
I Corinthians 1:25 For the foolishness of Elohim is wiser than men, and the weakness of Elohim is stronger than men.
1 Corinthians 1:26 For look at your calling, brothers, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble.
1 Corinthians 1:27 But Elohim has chosen the foolish matters of the world to put to shame the wise, and Elohim has chosen the weak of the world to put to shame the strong.
1 Corinthians 1:28 And Elohim has chosen the low-born of the world and the despised, and the ones that are not, that He might bring to naught the ones that are,
1 Corinthians 1:29 so that no flesh should boast in His presence.
1 Corinthians 1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
Acts 4:13 And seeing the boldness of Peter and John, and perceiving that they were unlearned and ordinary men, they marveled. And they recognized that they had been with Messiah.
Look at the leaders today in politics and religion. They are vain, self-proclaimed, proud, and full of themselves.
Isiah 66:2 And all these My hand has made, and all these that exist, declares Elohim. Yet to such a one I look: on him who is poor and bruised of spirit, and who trembles at My Word.
If they were humble and feared Elohim, they would obey Him! The other most important way to get the most out of this book is to view it like a trial. The truth is on trial! So how does a jury reach a verdict? The same way you should. Truth is shown through the preponderance of evidence! Do not get hung up on picky points and things you may not understand or totally agree with. Is there enough evidence to believe most of the core truths revealed in this book? Believe it or not – the choice is yours.
