REPLACEMENT THEOLOGY OVERVIEW SERIES © 6/29/13
By Larry Scher, Minister
This is by no means an exhaustive series, but rather, a work in progress to be added to as time goes by. The actual words Replacement Theology cannot be found in Scripture, however, the process or principle of Replacement Theology is found everywhere in Scripture and secular history. Satan is the god of this world, and has deceived the whole world and has used many means to do that.
Jer 8:8 “How do you say, ‘We are wise, and the Torah of יהוה is with us’? But look, the false pen of the scribe has worked falsehood.
2Co 4:1 Therefore, having this service, even as we received compassion, we do not lose heart,
2Co 4:2 but have renounced the secret ways of shame, not walking in craftiness nor falsifying the Word of Elohim, but by the manifestation of the truth recommending ourselves to every human conscience, in the sight of Elohim.
2Co 4:3 And indeed, if our Good News has been veiled, it has been veiled in those who are perishing,
2Co 4:4 in whom the mighty one of this age has blinded the minds of the unbelieving, so that the enlightening of the Good News of the esteem of Messiah, who is the likeness of Elohim, does not shine on them.
Rev 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his messengers were cast out with him.
His rebellion begins in Isa 14:12-14.b
Isa 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou
cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
Isa 14:13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my
throne above the stars of YHWH: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in
the sides of the north:
Isa 14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
He wants to replace YHWH and have his throne ascend above YHWH’s throne. In order to accomplish this, he must replace YHWH’s truths with his deceptions. This deceptive, counterfeit knowledge, permeates every part of man’s culture, science, education, religion, government and finances. This false knowledge is everywhere and in everything where mankind derives any kind of knowledge or understanding of his entire existence and true purpose of life. He has made sure it is either entirely false or a mixture of truth and error twisted and woven together as to confuse mankind in every area that affects their lives and the raising of the succeeding generations.
Satan rules the darkness and in order to get most people to accept that darkness, he must change it to light.
Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
2Co 11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Yahshua.
2Co 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an messenger of light.
2Co 11:15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
Isa 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
A large part of this process of changing darkness to light and light to darkness is accomplished by changing the meaning of words and names as in YHWH to God and Lord which are names of pagan origins. Other examples include the changing of Assembly and Congregations to “church” a name not found in the Scriptures and is also of pagan origin. This application extends into every facet of human existence, not just religion.
I have actually taught on Replacement Theology before as an individual topic as in changing the Sabbath to Sunday. Until I spoke with my son, Jay the other day, I never saw it as a total, comprehensive concept or overview. When we do this, it is quite powerful and more persuasive to really understand the big picture. That is what this series will be about – looking at Replacement Theology as a whole rather than isolated topics.
I cannot go to Strong’s Concordance to supply us with a definition of Replacement Theology – so here is my simple definition: “Any false doctrine or teaching that replaces a true one and cannot be found in Scripture or proven by Scripture.
PERSONAL COMMENTS ON DEFINITION
Paul warned the Corinthian assembly about Replacement Theology which was already beginning to infiltrate the 1st Century body of believers with a replacement Good News message and replacement Messiah, etc.
2Co 11:4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Yahshua, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another Good News message, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
This Scripture study is an overview or summary of the many, many false doctrines that have replaced the basic truths of Scripture.. The Scripture Studies are very plain about adding to or taking away.
Deu 4:2 Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of YHWH your Elohim which I command you.
Rev 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, YHWH shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
Replacement Theology completely ignores this simple command in the Scriptures. Languages and names are very important to YHWH. He always calls things what they are. His Name is very important to Him as so many of the other names/words everyone uses represent pagan gods.
In the Kingdom, we will be given a new name and a new, pure language that has not been corrupted by Replacement Theology nor Satan’s ministers wresting the scriptures.
Rev 2:17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the assemblies; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
Zep 3:9 For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of YHWH, to serve him with one consent.
We can never understate the importance of words, especially Yahshua words.
Joh 17:17 Set them apart through thy truth: thy word is truth.
It is not only His Truth that sets us apart, but the Sabbath and Clean and Unclean foods. Sanctify, which is a pagan word for a pagan diety, really means we are set-apart. We need to realize that. This is our true identity with our Creator – a relationship that 99% of all mankind does not have. We are very special. This is only possible because we obey and understand His Word of truth and reject false doctrines that replace the True ones.
Here is my master list which I will probably add to as time goes by. Please feel free to suggest other topics to the list.

THE MEANING OF THE WORD “CHURCH”
ANOTHER REPLACEMENT IN THEOLOGY
Joh 4:22 “You worship what you do not know. We worship what we know, because the deliverance is of the Yehuḏim. ISR Translation
Joh 4:23 “But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father also does seek such to worship Him.
Joh 4:24 “Elohim is Spirit, and those who worship Him need to worship in spirit and truth.”
THE MEANING OF THE WORD “CHURCH”
ANOTHER REPLACEMENT IN THEOLOGY
What does the word “church” mean and where did it come from? An interesting quote from the 1915 Gospel Advocate on page 589 says:
The word “church” is not really a translation of any word that was used by either Yahshua or His apostles, but is from a different word which Roman Catholicism substituted in the place of the true words used by Yahshua and His apostles. This was put in our English scriptures by the order of King James who instructed the translators of 1611 not to translate Ecclesia using the correct words congregation or assembly, but to use the word church instead. The word church is neither Hebrew or Greek and is not found in the First.Covenant. or the Renewed Covenant.
The Greek word in the N.T. for “church” is Ekklesia which means “Called Out Ones.” Ekklesia does not refer to a building, but a group of people. The proper English translation should read congregation, assembly or group. In Acts 19:32, Ekklesia is translated assembly, but in other passages it is translated church. Church is defined as a building for public worship.
Ekklesia is also spelled Ekklesia in our English dictionary so why wasn’t it used in later translations?
Bible scholars say the word “church” is derived from the Greek word Kyriakon meaning “lords house” and it is not used in the Scriptures. Ekklesia is!
It is assumed to be from Kureous meaning “house of god.” This word existed before the introduction of Greek. The word means a circle and comes from German and Celtic nations and is an ancient stone Megaliths on earth.
The Oxford Dictionary says – circle, chiriche, churiche and kirche is from the Old Saxon Kirika or circle. What do these mean? Why was another word ordered to replace the true meanings that Yahshua used to identify His followers? Kirke or circe or church today was a Greek goddess Pharmakeia (witch or sorceress) who lived on the island of Aiaia, which is the ancient form of the name Gaia, the pagan goddess of fertility. She was the daughter of the sun god Helios and had the power to change men into lions, wolves and especially swine. This Greek goddess would feed men, give them wine and then touch them with her charming rod and immediately they were transformed into swine having bodies of swine, but retaining their minds – which made them terribly lament their transformation. These men were trapped in these animal bodies
The Greeks pictured this goddess with a golden cup in one hand filled with wine mixed with drugs to seduce and control warriors and kings transforming them into animals.
In Rev 17:2-5 John saw a vision of this woman while on the ilse of Patmos. In Rev 18:23 the men of the earth are deceived by sorceries.
The words pharmacy or pharmaceuticals come from this word. Strong’s definition of Pharmakeia is medicine.
The church entices people with spiritual drugs, feel good doctrines, hallucinations or special visions and powers – all the things drugs and seducing spirits do.
Mar 13:22 For false messiah’s and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.
1Ti 4:1 But the Spirit distinctly says that in latter times some shall fall away from the belief, paying attention to misleading spirits, and teachings of demons,
2Ti 3:13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
Kirke is also the word for hawk which is an unclean bird of prey by Torah standards which is an unclean and hateful bird.
She has joined herself to world leaders in order to conquer others of different beliefs that are otherwise unaffected by her sorceries. Rev 18:24.
Leaders like Constantine had a vision he was to conquer in the sign of the cross.
Witch hunts killed many innocent women to appease “church’s god.” During the crusades, many innocent people and followers of “church” died for church’s god. Chattel slavery was defended by “church” and her followers. The murder, rape and lynchings of innocent humans didn’t bother her or her daughters one bit. Church’s bloody history will be repaid and all who follow her.
Some have said the church is a “mystery” Babylon and the Reformation was fulfillment of the scriptures that said “come out of her” Mystery Babylon was the mother of harlots. All of the daughter harlots – at least 38,000 denominations may have different first names, but share their mother’s maiden name – that of “CHURCH.”
It is important to understand who YHWH is actually dealing with. The vast majority of mankind is not being called to be the bride. This is not the only time that salvation is going to be offered to mankind.
The world and mainstream Christianity think the Jews are the “chosen people.” The first place the word Jew is mentioned in scripture is I Kings 16:6 and Judah and Israel are two separate nations who scriptures are at war with each other. Israel is mentioned 2415 times in the and Jew is mentioned only 272 times. The main emphasis is not on the Jews, but on Israel as a whole nation.
The following scriptures will show that Torah, the Commandments, the Sabbath and the Feast Days were given to ancient Israel who is the sum total of the Chosen People not just Judah.
Deu 5:1 And Moses called all Israel, and said unto them, Hear, O Israel, the statutes
and judgments which I speak in your ears this day, that ye may learn them, and keep,
and do them.
Deu 5:2 YHWH our Elohim made a covenant with us in Horeb.
Deu 5:3 YHWH made not this covenant with our fathers, but with us, even us, who are
all of us here alive this day.
Deu 5:4 YHWH talked with you face to face in the mount out of the midst of the fire,
Deu 5:5 (I stood between YHWH and you at that time, to shew you the word of YHWH:
for ye were afraid by reason of the fire, and went not up into the mount;) saying,
Deu 5:6 I am YHWH thy Elohim, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the
house of bondage.
Verses 7 – 21 give the 10 Commandments.
Lev 23:1 And YHWH spake unto Moses, saying,
Lev 23:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts
of YHWH, which ye shall proclaim to be set-apart convocations, even these are my
Lev 23:3 Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the Sabbath of rest, a
set-apart convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the Sabbath of YHWH in all your
Lev 23:4 These are the feasts of YHWH, even set-apart convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.
The whole house of Israel is 12 tribes of which Judah is only one.
Num 1:2 Take ye the sum of all the congregation of the children of Israel, after their
families, by the house of their fathers, with the number of their names, every male by
Num 1:3 From twenty years old and upward, all that are able to go forth to war in
Israel: thou and Aaron shall number them by their armies.
Num 1:4 And with you there shall be a man of every tribe; every one head of the house
of his fathers.
Num 1:5 And these are the names of the men that shall stand with you: of the tribe of
Reuben (1); Elizur the son of Shedeur.
Num 1:6 Of Simeon (2); Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai.
Num 1:7 Of Judah (3); Nahshon the son of Amminadab.
Num 1:8 Of Issachar (4); Nethaneel the son of Zuar.
Num 1:9 Of Zebulun (5); Eliab the son of Helon.
Num 1:10 Of the children of Joseph: of Ephraim (6); Elishama the son of Ammihud: of
Manasseh (7); Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur.
Num 1:11 Of Benjamin (8); Abidan the son of Gideoni.
Num 1:12 Of Dan (9); Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai.
Num 1:13 Of Asher (10); Pagiel the son of Ocran.
Nm 1:14 Of Gad (11); Eliasaph the son of Deuel.
Num 1:15 Of Naphtali (12); Ahira the son of Enan.
Num 1:16 These were the renowned of the congregation, princes of the tribes of their fathers, heads of thousands in Israel.
Who does YHWH say he has chosen as his chosen people?
Deu 7:6 For thou art an set-apart people unto YHWH thy Elohim: YHWH thy Elohim
hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon
the face of the earth.
Deu 7:7 YHWH did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were
more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people:
Deu 7:8 But because YHWH loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath YHWH brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.
Mat 10:6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
Mat 15:24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
In a later lesson, as we cover more of the Master List. We will talk about the identity of the true spiritual body of Messiah.

26. How The Renewed Covenant Was Changed To The New Testament.
ARE WE OUTSIDE THE NEW COVENANT?
HAVE WE REJECTED THE SIGN OF THE ETERNAL COVENANT?
By C.J. Koster, “Come Out of Her My People”
Who is this “remnant” that shall escape, the “remnant whom Yahuweh shall call,” “the remnant of my people” – of which we often read in the prophetical books? This “remnant of her seed” (Rev 12:17 KJV) is defined as those “who keep the Commandments of Yahuweh and have the testimony of Yahushua Messian” – the two conditions required to be in that first-fruit company of Rev. 14:1, similarly defined as conforming to both those requirements in Rev. 14:12. This is the first-fruit company, the remnant, those who have not defiled themselves with the “women” of Rev 17:1-5. They are those who have heeded the command of our Leader in Rev. 18:4, “Come out of her, My people.” “And I will bring you into the wilderness of the peoples, and there I will plead my case with you face to face…. And I will bring you into the bond of the Covenant” (Eze. 20:35-37). This is a prophecy for the end-time, wherein we clearly hear from our Mighty One that “the bond of the Covenant” is Yahuweh’s requirement for us if we are to be part of the remnant. Our attention is drawn to the bond of the Covenant in this passage.
In Rev.11:15-19 we also read, when Yahuweh and His Messiah put an end to the kingdom of this world to set up the Kingdom of Yahuweh on earth, that the ark of the Covenant is brought to our attention too (verse 19). Remember: the most important contents of this Ark of the Covenant is the Law written on two tables – the very same Law by which we all will be judged by in the Great Day of Yahuweh (James 1:25 and 2:12). Messiah, in His final message to us in Revelation, has emphasized the necessity for keeping His Father’s Commandments in three places, namely Rev. 12:17, Rev. 14:12, and Rev 22:14. He stressed it in the four Evangels as well, namely Matt. 5:19, Matt. 19:17, Luke 10:28, Luke 16:17, John 5:14, John 8:11, John 8:47, John 12:50. The Apostles stressed it too – read it in Rom 2:26-29, Rom 3:31, Rom 7:12, Rom 7:22, 7:26, Rom 8:7, I Cor 7:19, I Tim 6:13-14,Titus 2:12-14, James 2:10-12, 2Pet 2:21, I John 2:3-4, I John 3:4-10, I John 3:24, I John 5:3, I John 5:18, II John vs 6 etc.
One of the saddest mistakes of the King James Version is its use of the word “testament” instead of “covenant,” as it should have been. The Greek word diatheke has been rendered “covenant” some 20 times and “testament” some 13 times. Since then, this most unhappy error has been corrected, and almost all newer translations have completely eliminated the word “testament,” although they all still persist with the man-made tradition of calling the last part of the Scriptures “New Testament.” Just like the newer translations have now correctly done, all Greek-English Interlinears have also avoided using the word “testament” in its text. Dr. Bullinger, in The Companion Bible, appx. 95, wrote, “The word Testament as a translation of the Greek word diatheke (which means covenant), has been nothing less than a great calamity; for, by its use, truth has been effectively veiled all through the centuries; causing a wrong turning to be take as to the purpose and character of this Dispensation, by which the errors of tradition have usurped the place of important truth. TWhat he word “Testament” as a name for a collection of books is unknown to Scripture. It comes to us through the Latin Vulgate
The Interpreter’s Dictionary of the Bible, vol. 4, p. 575, says, “There can be no doubt that the fundamental meaning of “covenant” in the NT is derived from, and is a highly creative reinterpretation of, the OT berith, a two-party arrangement in which one is bound by oath. What then is wrong with the word “testament”? On the same page in this dictionary we read, “Testament: properly, a written instrument by which a person disposes of his estate, to take effect after his death.”
A covenant is a binding agreement between two parties; it is a two-party solemn arrangement bound by oath. On the other hand, a testament is a written instrument by which someone has disposed of his estate. This exposes the very heart of the Great Apostasy of our time. This reveals the very carnal nature of man, ”Because the carnal mind … is not subject to the Law of Elohim,” writes Paul in Rom. 8:7. Also, carnal man only wants to “receive” and does not want to serve. Our Savior has taught us, “It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35). Believers are, or ought to be, in a covenant relationship with Yahuweh, with Yahushua being the Mediator (Heb. 8:6, Heb. 9:15, Heb 12:24) thereof. Yahushua has solemnly instituted the New Covenant in Matt 26:28 “For this is the blood of the New Covenant which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” – if we take the Cup and the Bread, His Blood and His Body!
Only the “overcomers,” the “little flock,” are experiencing the blessings of the Renewed Covenant now, but when Yahushua returns, it will become a physical reality. Similarly, only the first-fruit company is now abiding by the Laws of His Kingdom, but with His Second Coming, the Kingdom of Yahuweh and its Laws, will be binding to all. He is our King now, living spiritually in our hearts, but when He returns, He will be King over all the earth (Rev 11:15, Dan. 2:44, Dan. 7:18-27, Isa. 24:23, Micah 4:7, Zech. 14:4-21 etc.).
This word “testament,” as a description of our present spiritual realm, is the heritage that we have inherited from Rome, for it has come our way, due to the use of the word testament in the Latin Vulgate. The word gives the wrong impression of “receiving only.” It contributes to the erroneous teaching of “only believe,” “grace only,” “good works are unnecessary,” “love only.” Incidentally, love is not the rule whereby we must live, love is the principle whereby we must live. Love is the motive for the keeping of the law. It is a fallacy to think that love according to the world, is the same as the “love” according to the Scriptures. Scriptural love is qualified, it is specified by the stipulations of the Law. Unqualified love grants permission for the act of adultery for the sake of “love,” murder for the sake of “love,” etc. Scriptural love is defined as the keeping of the Commandments of Yahuweh (I John 5:3 and 2 John v. 6).
This doctrine of “only believe” is the fruit of the work of the “spirit that works in the sons of disobedience,” the spirit in the Man of Lawlessness who instituted this “no-law-religion,” the Great Apostasy, the Mystery of Lawlessness. Elohim warns about this in Ps 2:1-6.
Psa 2:1 Why do the nations rage, And the peoples meditate emptiness?
Psa 2:2 The sovereigns of the earth take their stand, And the rulers take counsel together, Against יהוה and against His Messiah, and say,
Psa 2:3 “Let us tear apart Their bonds, And throw away Their ropes from us.”
Psa 2:4 He who is sitting in the heavens laughs, יהוה mocks at them.
Psa 2:5 Then He speaks to them in His wrath, And troubles them in His rage, saying,
Psa 2:6 “But I, I have set My Sovereign on Tsiyon, My set-apart mountain.”
This is exactly what happened in our Christian world, and this is exactly the turning back or restoration which must now come. Some time ago a young man said he became a Buddhist because they have “no do’s and don’ts.” Is it much different with us? Where is the New Covenant? Is the Law of Elohim truly written into our hearts and written in our minds? Sadly, we must admit: Indeed, the Mystery of Lawlessness, the Great Apostasy, has become our heritage, inherited through the traditions of men. The Man of Lawlessness has indeed taken over. “The earth is also defiled under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the Laws, changed the ordinance, and broken the Everlasting Covenant. Therefor e the curse has devoured the earth . . . therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned and few men left” (Isa. 24:5-6)
Not only has the Covenant been broken, but Messianic Believers have not been properly taught the basic, simple, but clear Messianic message of the Renewed Covenant. The Law of YHWH written into our hearts and in our minds, by Yahshua, the Mediator of the New or Renewed Covenant. Therefore, we must eliminate the word “testament” from the New Testament,” as modern translations have done. Furthermore, this latter part of the Scriptures, we so dearly love, must be called: “Messianic Scriptures” or “New Covenant,” and not “New Testament.” That will help us remember that we are expected to be “in the True Worship.” We are bound to Him, by love, by His Son, the Mediator of the Eternal Covenant. We are married to Him, therefore we are faithful to Him, willingly. We delight in the Law of YHWH. It is no longer a burden, it is a joy to be obedient to Yahshua, the Lawgiver, the Covenant-mediator.
The incorrect and un-Scriptural idea of “testament,” instead of the correct Scriptural “covenant,” has truly been a calamity,: as Dr. Bullinger called it. Similarly, the older translations lack the correct Scriptural words “lawlessness” and “lawless.” That too has been a major cause for the “no law doctrine.” Likewise, the erroneous rendering of Heb 4:9 has also hidden the clear instruction of Sabbath keeping, as previously discussed.
Last of course, the substitution of the Name of the Father and the Name of the Son, has resulted in the hiding of, and the substitution of their identities, and even the supplanting of their Names with those of idols, particularly Sun-dieties. The prophecy of Yahshua’s First Coming was given in Mal 3:1, have we accepted Him, the Messenger of the Covenant, the Mediator of the Covenant, to mediate the Covenant?
Elohim turned and gave Israel up to worship the host of heaven. He has done the same, exactly the same, to us too – we who regard ourselves to be part of Israel! Why? Because He has sent us a strong delusion to believe the lie, the Great Lie that we are free from the binding covenant relationship, “free from the Law.” This has resulted in the great apostasy, the Mystery of Lawlessness (2Thes, 2 and Rev. 12-22). Hebrews chapters 7-10 make it very clear; Yahshua fulfilled the Old Testament Laws concerning the offerings (sacrifices) and the laws concerning the Levitical priesthood which some call ceremonial laws – Nothing more.
We are not saved by good works. We are saved by favor (grace) through faith. We cannot earn our salvation. Paul makes this very clear in Romans 3 and 4. We are saved by favor (grace) alone. But note: we are saved by favour, through faith, UNTO good works. That is the clear message of Eph 2:8-10, Titus 2:14, Titus 1:16. When we come to salvation, our Saviour commands us, “See, you have been made well. Sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you.” (John 5:14) Again, Yahshua said in John 8:11, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.” What is sin? The Scriptures emphatically describe it as lawlessness, transgression of the Law (I John 3:4, Ex 20:20, Rom3:20, Rom 4:15, Rom 7::7, Jer. 16:10-11 etc). Can we truthfully say, “Thy Word I have treasured in my heart, that I may not sin against Thee? (NASB) Ps. 119:11.
If we do not have the Law of Yah in our hearts and in our minds, we are outside the New or Renewed Covenant. This same Covenant is called the Eternal Covenant in Heb. 13:20. This Eternal Covenant has a sign: the Sabbath, according to Ex 31:16-17. Shall we not return to the Mediator of this Covenant, Yahshua, and ask Him to mediate the Eternal, Renewed Covenant?
