Is Elijah in Heaven - Part
All the nations of the earth are being gathered against the United
States, Yahweh's great Zion nation. But Yahweh continues on, through His
prophet: "Now also many nations are gathered against thee...But they know
not the thoughts of the Lord, neither understand they his counsel: for
he shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor." (Micah 4:11-12)
Then we [America] are ordered to battle: "Arise and thresh, O
daughter of Zion: for I will make thine horn iron, and I will make thy
hoofs brass: and thou shalt beat in pieces many people: and I will consecrate
their gain unto the Lord, and their substance unto the Lord of the whole
earth." (Micah 4:13)
We have seen that Yahweh was to make Jerusalem "as Shiloh." One
of the things that was to happen to Shiloh was: "And thou shalt see an
enemy in my habitation..." (1 Samuel 2:32) This did happen to Shiloh, and
if Yahweh's Word is True, and it is, it must also happen to the old city
of Jerusalem. Ezekiel saw the same thing: "Also, thou son of man, prophesy
unto the mountains [nations] of Israel, and say, Ye mountains of Israel,
hear the word of the Lord: Thus saith the Lord God; Because THE ENEMY HATH
SAID...AHA, EVEN THE ANCIENT HIGH PLACES ARE OUR'S IN POSSESSION."
Now, who possesses the places of worship of ancient Israel? Not
the true Israel people, but the Jews. He then goes on to say: "...Surely
in the fire of my jealousy have I spoken against the residue of the heathen,
and against all Idumea [Edom: the Jews], WHICH HAVE APPOINTED MY LAND UNTO
THEIR POSSESSION with the joy of all their heart, with despiteful minds,
to cast it out for a prey." (Ezekiel 36:5)
The Jewish Encyclopedia, Vol. 5, page 41, 1925 edition says: "Edom
is in modern Jewry!"
Again, who has possession of Old Jerusalem, Palestine, and the
"ancient high places" in their possession? THE JEWS OF COURSE!
We will close this study of the two Jerusalems with this, for
it is not my purpose here to describe the battle in which Yahweh's Israel
people in NEW JERUSALEM will be saved from their enemies. But most Bible
students know that all prophecy points to a time when there will be fought
between Israel and Israel's enemies, between Christ and anti-Christ, the
great battle often called "The Conflict of the Ages." That that battle
will be fought here on this great North American Continent is abundantly
clear to those who understand both history and prophecy.
For we, the White Anglo-Saxons, gathered here in the United States
and Canada, are those Israel people. We believe that the victorious conclusion
of that battle under the banner of Yeashua will usher in Yahweh's great
Kingdom on earth, the millennium reign of our Lord and Savior Yeashua.
And, that, His Kingdom is not limited to any one nation, for when: "...out
of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem."
(Isaiah 2:3); "...The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of
our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever." (Revelation
Realizing this Bible study has uncovered many things that you
have never heard before, it must be made very clear that, while we disagree
with much of the present day teachings on Israel and the two Jerusalems,
we blame the erroneous teachings more on the Seminaries than on the "Ministers."
While book after book used by the Seminaries and our "Ministers," are filled
with thousands of pages of treatises, themes, essays, demands, arguments,
studies and so-called "proofs" that the people known today as "Jews" are
"God's Chosen People Israel." It is simply not so; but we cannot entirely
blame a "Minister" who as brought up in a church that taught this error,
then went to a Seminary that gave him hundreds of hours of instruction
in this same error, and then turned him out to associate with other "Ministers"
who have also been taught the same error.
Henry Ford, a great Christian layman, in his monumental and almost
forgotten book, "The International Jew," wrote: "The reading of the Scriptures
which confuse the tribe of Judah with Israel, and which interpret every
mention of Israel as signifying the Jews, is at the root of more than one-half
the confusion and division traceable in Christian doctrinal statements.
The Jews are NOT the Chosen People, though practically the entire Church
has succumbed to the propaganda which declares them to be so"
He wrote that in 1921! Thus, it is obvious to thinking Christians,
that most, if not all, of our Seminaries are the victims of: "...certain
men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation..."
(Jude 4); "...there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall
bring in damnable heresies ..." (2 Peter 2:1)
Paul explained how we are to know the things of Yahweh: "But the
natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are
foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually
discerned." (1 Corinthians 2:14)
Yahweh makes His Word plain to those who ask Him for understanding,
and Yeashua explained to us how we could understand future events
through the Spirit.
"Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth [Holy
Ghost] is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak
of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will
shew you things to come." (John 16:13)
Future! Future history will be shown by the Holy Spirit. How?
By visions and signs and wonders? No! Yahweh reveals Himself through His
Word; interpreted by the Holy Spirit. So please ask the Holy Spirit for
guidance, instead of asking a "Minister" who repeats only what he has been
told and taught in the Seminary! Read the Bible yourself!
As Christians and parents, how can you convince your children
of the Truth of the Bible, and the faithfulness of our God, and Yeashua,
unless you teach them the truth of our Israel Identity? "Ministers" tell
millions of our young people "the Jews are God's Chosen People," and that
there are supposedly less Israelites today than there were over 3000 years
ago, and that the Old Testament is about other people, the "Jews." They
are totally unable to show the relevance of the Scripture to our race,
our nation, or our time, when the truth of the matter is that the Scripture
is primarily about our race, our nation, our time! "Hear, ye deaf: and
look, ye blind, that ye may see. Who is blind, but my servant..." (Isaiah
Let's teach our children the truth about Israel: That we Anglo-Saxons,
are the true descendants, of the twelve sons of Israel, and that our great
nation and the great Christian Nations of Europe are the nations promised
to the Children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob/Israel. Let's prove to them
we have a covenant-keeping God, that the Bible is the Word of Yahweh, that
it is true, and we have been Redeemed by the Blood of Yeashua.
What About the Transfiguration?
The transfiguration WAS
Notice how, just SIX DAYS before the transfiguration took place,
Yeashua plainly said that "some" [NOT ALL] of His disciples would not "taste
of death" till they "see the Son of Man coming IN HIS KINGDOM!" (Matthew
16:28). The ONLY WAY one can understand this plain statement of Yeashua
is by the transfiguration: A VISION, of "the Son of Man coming in His Kingdom"
which took place just six days later!
Otherwise, this would be a clear error -- and the very Word of
Yahweh would appear to contain a COLOSSAL MISTAKE. Because, EVERY SINGLE
ONE of the Apostles DIED without having seen "the Son of Man come into
His ACTUAL Kingdom." However, THREE OF THEM DID SEE "the Son of Man coming
in His Kingdom," IN A VISION, just six days later! Now let's read the account
of the transfiguration of Yeashua in (Matthew 17:1-8): "And after six days
Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into
an high mountain apart, And was transfigured before them: and his face
did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. And, behold,
there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. Then answered
Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou
wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses,
and one for Elias. While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed
them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved
Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him. And when the disciples heard
it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid. And Jesus came and touched
them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid. And when they had lifted up their
eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only."
Is Elijah in Heaven - Part 14
Notice that Peter UNDERSTOOD that the translucent, glowing, radiant
visage of Yeashua, Moses and Elijah was as if they were SPIRIT BEINGS,
already IN GOD'S KINGDOM. Peter suggested that they might: "...make here
three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias"
The Feast of Tabernacles [or "booths"] foreshadowed the KINGDOM
OF Yahweh! And Peter had kept this important Holy Day season ALL HIS LIFE.
So had ALL believing Israelites of the House of Israel. After they heard
a booming voice, they: "...fell on their face, and were sore afraid." Yeashua
then came to them, and told them not to be afraid, "when they had lifted
up their eyes, they saw NO MAN, save Jesus only." (verses 6-9)
Now notice the ABSOLUTE PROOF, from the Word of Yahweh itself,
that what they saw was NOT REAL; BUT A MIRACULOUS VISION! "And as they
came down the mountain, Yeashua charged them, saying, Tell the VISION to
no man, UNTIL the Son of man be risen again from the dead." (Matthew 17:9)
Now, Peter, James and John UNDERSTOOD THEY HAD SEEN ONLY A VISION!
They KNEW that they HAD NOT seen a literal RESURRECTION; and, of course,
they KNEW that what they had seen had taken place RIGHT THERE on the mountain,
before their startled eyes. Knowing what the scribes said, and a fair amount
of the Scriptures, they asked Yeashua: "...Why then say the scribes that
Elias must first come? And Yeashua answered and said unto them, Elias truly
shall first come, and restore all things. But I say unto you, That Elias
is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever
they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them." (Matthew
Note well this important discussion. The reason James and the
others asked Yeashua about what the scribes really meant concerning "Elijah
must come first" was because they KNEW Elijah had NOT YET BEEN RESURRECTED!
They KNEW what they had seen was A VISION! Because Yeashua had plainly
TOLD THEM SO! Unlike millions of professing, church-going Christians today
who ASSUME Yeashua literally brought Elijah and Moses "down from heaven"
to be with Him for a temporary stay, and to let the startled eyes of James,
Peter and John SEE these two great men who were allegedly already "up in
heaven," the disciples KNEW they had merely SEEN A VISION! They BELIEVED
Christ! Do you?
In the remainder of the discussion, one can see how Yeashua revealed
to them that John the Baptist was the prophesied end-time prophet who is
to come in "the power and the spirit of Elijah."
If you BELIEVE Christ, and NOT what you have "always assumed,"
or what you have "always been taught" by so-called religious teachers,
then you KNOW, and you KNOW THAT YOU KNOW, that Elijah WAS NOT THEN IN
HEAVEN! You KNOW that what the disciples saw was merely A VISION! You KNOW
that Elijah is DEAD. You KNOW that he had "received not the promise" yet
(Hebrews 11:13, 39-40) and that, like DAVID, Elijah: "...IS NOT ASCENDED
INTO THE HEAVENS!" (Acts 2:34)
Enoch is Dead!
Now let's look at what the Bible says about Enoch. "By faith Enoch
was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because
God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony,
that he pleased God." (Hebrews 11:5)
Now read the entire chapter of Hebrews Eleven. Notice how many
great men of Yahweh; sages, prophets and patriarchs, are mentioned. They
include Abel, ENOCH, Noah, Abraham, Sarah, Joseph, Moses, Gideon and Barach,
Sampson and David, Samuel, and many other prophets.
TWICE, in the 11th chapter of Hebrews, Yahweh's Word says, "These
ALL DIED in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them
AFAR OFF..." (Hebrews 11:13)
Again, "And these ALL, having obtained a good report through faith,
RECEIVED NOT THE PROMISE!" (Hebrews 11:39) Therefore, the Bible plainly
says Enoch DIED!
We also have the further testimony of Yeashua who plainly said
no man hath ascended into heaven. The sacred Word of Yahweh insists that
Enoch and Elijah are DEAD.
Then what does it mean when the Bible says "Enoch was 'translated?'"
The Greek word "metatithemi" (#3346 Strong's Exhaustive Concordance) is
used ONLY in (Acts 7:16; Galatians 1: 6; Hebrews 7:12; 11:5 [twice] and
Jude 4). The word means "CARRIED OVER: REMOVED." Notice the IDENTICAL Greek
WORD as it is translated in the books of Acts, chapter 7 verse 16: "And
were CARRIED OVER [metatithemi] into Sychem, and laid in the sepulchre
that Abraham bought for a sum of money..." Here, the very same word which
is rendered "translated" is given as "carried over" concerning the bodies
of Jacob and others of the fathers.
Now notice the next example: "I marvel that ye are so soon REMOVED
FROM [metatithemi] him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another
gospel." (Galatians 1:6)
Actually, the expression should be rendered "removing," or that
they were in the process of MOVING AWAY FROM the original body of truth
to a false doctrine. But notice the force of the Greek word metatithemi
as it is rendered in the English expression in this verse: "REMOVE FROM."
Now, note the next use of the SAME GREEK WORD. "For the priesthood being
CHANGED [metatithemi], there is made of necessity a change also of the
law." (Hebrews 7:12) This scripture deals with the CHANGE between the priesthood
of the sons of Aaron [the Levitical priesthood] to the divine priesthood
None of these expressions have anything whatsoever to do with
being TAKEN UP TO HEAVEN! One has to do with REMOVING FROM true beliefs,
from the body of truth of Yahweh's church. Another has to do with the CHANGE
in the priesthood. Another had to do with the TRANSPORTING OF DEAD BODIES
from one place to another.
Now, note the example in Jude 4: "For there are certain men crept
in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly
men, TURNING [Greek: metatithemi] the grace of our God into lasciviousness,
and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ." The word "turning"
means CHANGING, EXCHANGING, SUBSTITUTING.
What does the word "to translate" mean to you? Notice we have
avoided its usage when we spoke of CHANGING a word from the Greek language
into the English, choosing to use "rendering." This was to avoid confusion
so we did not use the word "translation" twice in a row. Otherwise, we
would have said, "The word 'translated' was translated as..."
When one "translates" one word into another, they are CHANGING
FROM ONE LANGUAGE to another, but are preserving the meaning. By no stretch
of the imagination does the word "translated" in the Greek language mean
that Enoch WAS TAKEN TO HEAVEN!
Now, notice that the Apostle Paul said he "was not found." WHY
was he "not found?" Because there were those who were LOOKING FOR HIM.
Enoch was called the "seventh from Adam." (1) Abel: who was not counted
because he fathered no children; (2) Seth; (3) Enos; (4) Cainan; (5) Mahalaleel;
(6) Jared; (7) Enoch. As you can see Cain is not listed at all.
It was stated that Enoch "walked with God" after Methuselah was
born. "And Enoch walked with God..." (Genesis 5:22)
There were TWO men named "Enoch" mentioned in Genesis, and the
Enoch with whom we are concerned with was the SECOND, the son of Jared,
and the father of Methuselah. The Bible plainly says that, BECAUSE Enoch
"walked with God" [and no higher compliment could be given to this patriarch!],
Yahweh "TOOK HIM." But WHERE did Yahweh "take him?" That is the question!
REMEMBER what Yeashua PLAINLY SAID. He plainly said NO MAN had ascended
Is Elijah in Heaven - Part 15
David was a man after Yahweh's own heart; and Peter tells us,
in his inspired sermon on the Day of Pentecost, that David is both DEAD
AND BURIED, that his sepulcher remains with us unto this day, and that
David IS NOT IN THE HEAVENS! (Acts 2:29, 34).
The Apostle Paul, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, tells
us in the book of Hebrews that ENOCH together with all the other prophets
and patriarchs, including Enoch, DIED! However, Paul further tells us that
Enoch "WAS NOT FOUND!"
Obviously, since Enoch was one of those FEW men during that pre-flood
period who truly "walked with God," there were others, ENEMIES, GOING SATAN'S
WAY, who were LOOKING FOR HIM! WHY?
We are given none of the details, but it is interesting to note
that, in the book of Jude, a quotation from a book written by Enoch concerning
the SECOND COMING OF CHRIST is given. "And Enoch also, the seventh from
Adam, prophesied of THESE [Satan-inspired false prophets], saying, Behold,
the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon
all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly
deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches
which ungodly sinners have spoken against him." (Jude 14-15)
Enoch was one of Yahweh's faithful PROPHETS. As one of the very
FEW during that violent, sinful period, he was PREACHING THE GOSPEL as
a WITNESS against evil, sinning, Satanic men!
While we are given none of the details, the Bible is explicitly
clear that Yahweh decided to SPARE Enoch from MURDER at the hands of his
antagonists, JUST LIKE ELIJAH! So Yahweh "TOOK HIM AWAY," and he "was not
found" [by those who were LOOKING FOR HIM]. We are not told WHERE Yahweh
took him; but WE KNOW that it was NOT "into heaven," for Yeashua plainly
SAID SO. It is also just as obvious that, at some later date [In a land
other than that covered by the Bible, because after one left a certain
geographical area they were no longer mentioned in the Holy Scriptures.
An example would be Jeremiah, for after he left Israel and went into Egypt,
he is no longer mentioned in the Scriptures; yet we know that he traveled
to Ireland from Egypt], and, hopefully, under pleasant circumstances, Enoch
Like David, he is "DEAD AND BURIED," and, even though we do not
know the location of his grave, he "RECEIVED NOT THE PROMISE!"
The Greek word "metatithemi," which is rendered "translated" [inaccurately,
and confusingly] on two occasions, SHOULD have been rendered "transferred;
removed; taken away; transported!"
No, Enoch is NOT IN HEAVEN! Elijah is NOT IN HEAVEN! David is
NOT IN HEAVEN! And to this date, the ONLY human individual who has ever
walked this earth to be assumed BODILY or OTHERWISE into heaven is our
Lord and Savior Yeashua of Nazareth!
Can We Believe Yeashua?
It is absolutely essential that one understands this great principle!
The Bible does not contradict itself! Do you believe this? For, if you
do NOT; if you believe the Bible is filled with errors, mistakes, inaccuracies,
or outright lies; then you have NO BASIS for your belief in Yahweh! You
have NO BASIS for your belief in Yeashua as YOUR SAVIOR, and you have NO
BASIS for believing you can be SAVED! Furthermore you should remove yourself
from the pulpit, if you are a "Minister" and enter into another line of
If even ONE WORD of the Bible is untrustworthy, then ALL of the
Bible is untrustworthy. However, this does not mean that on occasions
translators did not understand what they were reading and so chose the
wrong word either by honest mistake or by a deliberate falsehood. Why are
so many sincere, yet DECEIVED, persons so IGNORANT of this great principle?
It is because: "Then understood they how that he [Christ] bade them [Apostles]
not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine [teachings] of the
Pharisees and of the Sadducees [The Jews]." (Matthew 16:12)
Paul tells us: "Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy
and vain deceit, after the TRADITION OF MEN [The teachings of the Jews],
after the rudiments of the world [by the Jews through their bible The Talmud],
and not after Christ." (Colossians 2:8)
Paul warns us a second time: "Not giving heed to JEWISH FABLES,
and commandments of men [Again do not listen to the teachings of the Jews],
that turn from the truth [In other words the Jews will lead men AWAY from
Christ and Yahweh Almighty]." (Titus 1:14)
A third time: "Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines..."
Peter said: "But there were false prophets also among the people
[He is speaking of the Jews who were teaching false doctrines], even as
there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable
heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them..." (2 Peter 2:1)
To prove what we are saying about the Jews, let's look at the
following: "Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them
to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying,
We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth. And there were seven sons of
one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so. And the evil
spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?
And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them,
and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and
wounded. And this was known to all the Jews..." (Acts 19:13-17)
Like the balky mule, or the horse you can "lead to water but cannot
make him drink," there are people who, while seeing with their OWN EYES,
in the pages of their OWN BIBLES, the truth of Yahweh's Word, will still
ABSOLUTELY REFUSE to accept it, so long as there is some fuzzy, vague notion
lodged in their minds which was PUT THERE by so-called religious teachers;
The Clergy of Organized Religion, parents, friends, or by their own misunderstanding
of the Bible.
Review, in your own mind, what you have SEEN with your own eyes
from YOUR OWN BIBLE! Look at the ACCURATE MEANINGS of each of the Greek
words used for "soul" which is "psuche" (#5590 Strong's Exhaustive Concordance)
in the New Testament!
Review what you have read about the STATE OF THE DEAD; the RESURRECTION;
the fact that Christ will return TO and rule ON THIS EARTH; and the plain
statements that "NO MAN HATH ASCENDED INTO HEAVEN" given to us by Yeashua
Now, please come to understand one of the PRIMARY requirements
of BIBLE UNDERSTANDING [What ever you have been told to the contrary notwithstanding].
FIRST: Yeashua thanked His Father that the Father had revealed
these things "unto babes." We must first become a "babe in Christ," like
an innocent wide-eyed CHILD, HUNGERING AND THIRSTING for Yahweh's Word.
We cannot WANT OUR OWN WAY; we cannot cling doggedly to preconceived notions,
opinions or previous religious teachings. Rather, like an innocent little
CHILD, we must yield our heart and our WHOLE BEING COMPLETELY TO Yahweh!
We must ask HIM to be our TEACHER. We must confess Yeashua, not only as
our personal Savior, but as our RULER, OUR KING, and as our BOSS!
SECOND: Yahweh says, "...to this man will I look, even to him
that is poor and of a contrite spirit, AND TREMBLETH AT MY WORD." (Isaiah
Is Elijah in Heaven - Part 16
(the Last One)
Do you TREMBLE before the divinely inspired, Holy and Sacred Word
of Yahweh? If you DO, then you would TREMBLE IN FEAR to REJECT Yahweh's
truth. You would TREMBLE IN FEAR to doggedly cling to a preconceived notion,
argument, personal point of view or OPINION of your own; especially when
those opinions are proven WRONG by the divinely inspired Word of Yahweh!
THIRD: Yeashua said, "...THE SCRIPTURE CANNOT BE BROKEN." (John 10:35)
Think for a moment. Yeashua is described as the WORD (Greek: logos #3056
Strong's Exhaustive Concordance) He is the Scripture, the Word of Yahweh
PERSONIFIED (John 1:1).
Will feeble, ignorant, deceived mankind presume to ascend up to
heaven and pull Yahweh from His Throne? Can the preconceived notions and
opinions of deceived persons nullify the very AUTHORITY OF THE LIVING CHRIST?
Yeashua is ABSOLUTELY SUPREME. He is untouched, aloof and inviolate; totally
ABOVE the puny presumptuousness of man. "...Jesus came and spake unto them,
saying, ALL POWER IS GIVEN UNTO ME IN HEAVEN AND IN EARTH." (Matt. 28:18)
Sarcasm, haughtiness, anger, rebellion at being told the TRUTH;
the petty emotions and resentments of human beings, are as meaningless
and useless to Yeashua as a germ on the hind leg of a tiny spider lost
in the vastness of the Mato Grosso of Brazil!
Petty, argumentative, human opinions simply DO NOT COUNT in Yahweh's
sight. But HOW FEW are willing to FACE THE BIBLE with THAT ATTITUDE. How
shockingly FEW are willing to read Yeashua' plain statement, "No man hath
ascended up to heaven." and simply, humbly BELIEVE IT.
Instead they become CONFUSED. They say, "But how can this be!"
They querulously say, "But what about Elijah, what about Enoch, what about
all the saints who were resurrected?"
Instead of BELIEVING CHRIST, they place GREATER WEIGHT on the
oft-repeated FABLES OF THE JEWS and their religious upbringing. They remember
the hoarse-voiced preaching of the perspiring tent-camp evangelists of
their youth. They remember the hundreds of radio and television evangelists
they have heard over the years. They remember their own "Minister" who,
in all likelihood, belongs to the Clergy of Organized Religion, and his
teachings over the years. They remember their parents' teaching and the
so-called "Christian" upbringing of their church.
Not so with the TRUE Christian. The TRUE CHRISTIAN approaches
the study of Yahweh's word in total SUBJECTION and HUMBLENESS. He will
approach the study of Yahweh's Word in trembling and great humility. He
will FEAR to misapply, misinterpret or attempt to read HIS OWN MEANING
into the Scriptures. He will realize that, even as Yeashua stands at the
supreme position of the LORD OF THE UNIVERSE, so do the WRITTEN SCRIPTURES
stand inviolable, untrammeled, unsullied, immutable and ABSOLUTELY SURE!
Therefore, when the True Christian sees his own Savior, Yeashua,
saying, "For no man hath ascended into heaven." HE BELIEVES Yeashua
Himself, and WILL BELIEVE NO OTHER. Then, ARMED WITH THAT BELIEF, he approaches
other, apparently nebulous or ambiguous, scriptures FROM THE POINT OF VIEW
OF THAT BELIEF. In other words, he knows the Bible tells him that he needs
to: "Study to shew thyself approved unto Yahweh, a workman that needeth
not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word truth." (2 Timothy 2:15)
Because he TREMBLES to misinterpret or misapply the Bible,
he will use the PLAIN, incontrovertible, impossible-to-be misunderstood
scriptures to assist him in understanding the vague, or ambiguous, ones.
Are YOU such a person? Or does Almighty Yahweh or Yeashua need
to tell you something twice? Three times? Twenty times? One hundred? Or
are you a CONVERTED CHRISTIAN and when your Savior, Lord and Master, High
Priest and soon-coming King tells you something He need only speak once?
APPLY THAT CONCEPT to all you have read in this presentation.
Carefully look up each scripture in your own Bible. Underline or make a
mark beside the ones that are outstandingly important. Let them sink
DEEPLY down into your mind. BELIEVE THEM; and do not CONFUSE yourself by
DECEIVING YOURSELF into believing you are "disagreeing with Billy Graham,
Jerry Falwell, Oral Roberts, or some other so-called Christian Pastor.
What they think or even what we think has NOTHING TO DO with YOUR SALVATION.
Your salvation is between you, Yeashua and Almighty Yahweh. If we
tell you the TRUTH, quote it for you out of YOUR OWN BIBLE, no amount of
dogging or evading that truth; no amount of taking issue with us as human
beings -- can nullify or make void that eternal TRUTH you have been told.
Yeashua said: "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you
free...If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed."
(John 8:32, 36)
When you KNOW THE TRUTH, you become RESPONSIBLE for it. Each time
you learn NEW TRUTH from the Sacred Word of Yahweh, it becomes "DANGEROUS
KNOWLEDGE!" For, once you learn NEW TRUTH from Yahweh's Word, you become
RESPONSIBLE for it. And Yahweh Almighty and Yeashua expects you to APPLY
and to teach it. In fact, He not only expects you to LEARN His truth, He
expects you to become so JOYOUS at DISCOVERING new truth that you will
eagerly and anxiously desire to SHARE IT with OTHERS. You should approach
ALL your Bible study in this fashion. Never believe MEN. Always, ALWAYS
believe the Bible, but realize that the New Testament King James English
is a modern day TRANSLATION, and that it is sometimes necessary to obtain
the precise meaning of the original Greek and other languages; it is necessary
to do as Christ said and "rightly divide the word of truth!" (2 Ti. 2:15).
You need to remember and believe that: "All scripture is given by inspiration
of Yahweh, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction,
for instruction in righteousness." (2 Timothy 3:16)
When Paul informed the young evangelist Timothy that some false
teachers were claiming the resurrection was past already, Paul said: "Nevertheless
the FOUNDATION OF Yahweh STANDETH SURE..." (2 Timothy 2:19)
Yes, REGARDLESS as to the petty disagreements, arguments and vanities
of ignorant, deceived MEN, the FOUNDATION OF Yahweh, the HOLY SCRIPTURES,
stands SURE! Yeashua DID NOT LIE. NO MAN HAS ASCENDED TO THE HEAVEN OF
Yahweh'S THRONE! Elijah was taken up, by a miracle, into the AIR, and was
transported safely away to some other location. YEARS LATER, from wherever
Elijah was taken to a place of security, A LETTER WAS RECEIVED BY JEHORAM,
THE NEW KING IN JERUSALEM.
Notice carefully: "And there came a writing to him FROM ELIJAH
THE PROPHET, saying, Thus saith the Lord God of David thy father, Because
thou hast not walked in the ways of Jehoshaphat thy father, nor in the
ways of Asa king of Judah..." (2 Chronicles 21:12)
Then followed a description of the horrible fate that Elijah,
WHO WAS STILL ALIVE, described would occur to Jehoram! Do you understand:
ELIJAH WAS STILL ALIVE, ON THIS EARTH, YEARS AFTER HE HAD BEEN TAKEN UP
BY THE FIRERY CHARIOT, with which he had been taken out of Palestine to
some other place! Some other country. Now you know! Elijah is DEAD. Enoch
is DEAD. They await THE RESURRECTION upon the RETURN OF Yeashua!
As a second witness; Paul related: "...IT IS APPOINTED UNTO MEN
ONCE TO DIE, BUT AFTER THIS THE JUDGMENT." (Hebrews 9:27)
Read this scripture carefully: note it well: "For if the dead
rise not, then is not Christ raised: And if Christ be not raised your faith
is vain; ye are yet in your sins. Then they also which are fallen asleep
in Christ are perished. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we
are of all men most miserable. BUT NOW IS CHRIST RISEN FROM THE DEAD, AND
BECOME THE FIRSTFRUITS OF THEM THAT SLEPT. For since by man came death,
by man came also the RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD. For as in Adam ALL DIE,
even so in Christ SHALL ALL BE MADE ALIVE. But every man in his own order;
Christ the first-fruits; afterward they that are Christ's AT HIS COMING."
(1 Corinthians 15:16-23) Elijah and Enoch HAVE NOT YET RECEIVED THE PROMISES.
But they will. When? Christ is the "first-fruits" from the dead, and; AFTERWARD,
they that are the "dead in Christ" [which includes Elijah and Enoch] will
rise from their graves TO IMMORTALITY (1 Corinthians 15:50-52) A HIS COMING,
AND NOT ONE SECOND BEFORE!!!!!!!
"Thanks to the terrible power of our International
Banks, we have forced the Christians into wars without number. Wars have
a special value for Jews, since Christians massacre each other and make
more room for us Jews. Wars are the Jews' Harvest: The Jew banks
grow fat on Christian wars. Over 100-million Christians have been swept
off the face of the earth by wars, and the end is not yet." (Rabbi Reichorn,
speaking at the funeral of Grand Rabbi Simeon Ben-Iudah, 1869, Henry Ford
also noted that: 'It was a Jew who said, 'Wars are the Jews' harvest';
but no harvest is so rich as civil wars.' The International Jew: The World's
Foremost Problem, Vol. III, p. 180).
