Israelism/Yahwism - Statement of Belief
Assembly of Yahweh, Cascade, updated July. 12, 2022
Important word definitions:
Israel - plural, the collective national Biblical name given to the twelve tribes, Ex. 3:16, stemming from the name given to Jacob, who was renamed Israel, the paternal father of the twelve sons, Gen. 32:28. The name Israel refers to the ancient Biblical relatives and actual true descendents of the original tribal people. Subsequently the name Israel (because of the division of the Kingdom), excluded the tribal name Judah (Yahudah), 1 Sam. 11: 8; 2 Sam. 20: 1; 1 Kings 12: 16. There after the name Israel was accepted and assumed to be the name only of the Northern Kingdom. With the destruction of the Northern Kingdom 721 BCE, and the dispersion of the people of Israel all over the globe, Israel is now known as the lost tribes.
Israelite – singular, an individual of the collective whole national Biblical nation of Israel, i.e. a blood relative of the original true twelve tribes prior to the division of the Kingdom in 721 BCE. There are no known relatives or blood descendents living today that can claim to be spawned by the descendents of the original tribal people of Israel.
Israelism – is the Biblical belief of the ancient tribal people of Israel that developed under Moses, specifically pertaining to the Almighty Sovereign Creator to follow His precepts as revealed to him, and the principles of the Almighty that were, over time, provided by inspiration, to the true anointed prophets, who recorded them in the Hebrew Bible for us.
Israelist – singular, any individual believer of Israelism. An adherent to the principles taught in the Hebrew Bible.
Yahwism – Yahwist – See our document relating to this specific term. https://AOYcascade.com/Documents/Yahwism-Yahwist.html
The Bible – Hebrew or Greek - It is a fact that there is no such thing as a completely accurate Bible (an original or a translation). For the Hebrew Bible some will use various Greek translations like the Septuagint, others use only the Massoretic vowel pointed text. Still others use a combination of whatever Bible text that comes closest to their preconceived doctrines of belief. For the New Testament we only have various Greek copies left but no originals. We do not attempt to pick and choose or develop doctrines from these sources, but after careful study, and where a choice must be made, we use common sense and reason since we believe the Hebrew Bible was written and recorded for ordinary people, not rocket scientists.
For our comments on the Greek Bible, see our information on the Greek Bible below. Having said that, from the times of Noah and then throughout the Hebrew Bible a common and continuous thread can be found, that in no uncertain terms establishes monotheism. Monotheism is the belief that there is only “One Almighty Sovereign Creator” and, that this One Almighty has chosen the descendents of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel (the ancient Biblical Nation of Israel) to reveal Himself by inspiration and Biblically to us. His chosen and tested prophets and messengers (who can be celestial ‘angels’ or terrestrial) were through Hebrew Bible history instructed by the Almighty’s inspiration to guide us toward righteous living in accordance with His Sovereign will. By believing in this reveled Almighty, by repenting for sins committed against Him, and thereafter by doing His will, by keeping His Covenant (the 10 Commandments), we are promised to be redeemed through His mercy and will enter into eternal life as members of his family, dwelling and serving Him throughout His Created Eternal Universe after our physical life on earth.
The Almighty Creator – by free-will and choice we can believe in the One1 Almighty (aka God) who is revealed throughout the Hebrew Bible. He is defined as the Almighty Sovereign Creator Power and Life-Force Essence2 of the entire Created Universe. He is the Original-Originator without having a beginning, without having an ending. He is the ever-existing-living one who is eternal, incorporeal, incomprehensible, invisible, immutable, infinite, perfectly wise, and perfectly just. He is a non-physical Life-Force essence that fills His entire ever-existing and endless created Universe, sustaining and directing all using His created Alueim,3 the celestial/terrestrial beings (aka angels, messengers) thereby maintaining everything according to His will and eternal plan. Where homage is given to His appointed celestial/terrestrial messengers it is ultimately directed to The One Almighty Sovereign Himself.
The name of the Almighty Creator in Hebrew is YHWH4 (YHWH is transliterated as “Yahweh” in English). This is His name given by Him to Moses for Israel. Yahweh says to us “I-AM that I-AM,” we address Him as “He-Is.” Yahweh has the meaning of: He-Is, He-Exists, or Ever-Living. Yahweh is the Only One Almighty Sovereign that is worthy of all worship, praise and prayer, there is none other.5
Jesus – The New Testament “Jesus” (whose Hebrew name is Yahshua) is NOT a part of the One Almighty Sovereign revealed in the Hebrew Bible, nor is he a part of a man made Trinity God. The Hebrew Bible teaches us that there is only One Almighty Sovereign Creator. Yahshua however, is considered a “son of Yahweh” but he is not “Yahweh the son.” There are many sons and daughters of Yahweh according to Yahshua’s recorded statement in the Greek Bible. For he has said, that “all that do the will of his Father (The One Almighty Sovereign) are also his brothers and sisters,” see Matt. 12:50. If Yahshua was indeed a son of the Almighty, and we are his brothers and sisters by also doing the will of the Father, the number sons and daughters of Yahweh dwelling throughout Yahweh’s unlimited everlasting universe in the Heaven(s) must be innumerable.
Jesus (Yahshua) is not found in Hebrew Bible prophesy. We have an extensive article written by Thomas Paine in 1807 that we believe correctly answers that question very well. We see no reason to change or add to it. Please see our document “Is Jesus (Yahshua) in Bible Prophecy.”
Yahshua’s mission on earth to the First Century (house) of Israel (Matt. 15: 24) was for the Israelite people to repent: for the “Kingdom for the heaven/of Yahweh is at hand,” (Matt.4: 17. et al). The name “Yahshua” means: “Yahweh is Savior” and declares his entire mission on earth before his execution.
We believe Yahweh has revealed Himself to us by two means: First, through the physical record found in what is commonly referred to as the “Natural Sciences;” this is Yahweh’s General Revelation.6 This physical/natural scientific record is an example to all of creation, of order, design, planning, and displays the purpose for the universe and all that exists or will ever exist. It is also undeniable physical evidence of Yahweh’s eternal existence and His Sovereignty over all of His creation. Second, through the written record as found only in the Hebrew Bible; this record is Yahweh’s Special Revelation.7 The written record of Yahweh’s special revelation is an account preserved and specifically provided for the ancient Hebrew Israelite people and for their progeny. This record is also for all those to whom Yahweh chooses to reveal it and who then choose to accept it. We must understand that these two records (the General Revelation and the Special Revelation) are both Yahweh designed and created therefore they are always complimentary to each other. When these two do not appear to agree, it is because our comprehension is simply wrong.
We believe that the Hebrew Bible8 is the only foundation for the belief of Yahwism9 (aka Israelism). Only the Hebrew Bible (OT Bible) contains all of the principles necessary for righteous living, for eternal life, and to be in harmony with, and in compliance with the instructions given by Yahweh’s inspired word to ancient Biblical Israel (and to us). His word to ancient Biblical Israel and their descendants was revealed by inspiration over the ages, and then recorded by His anointed prophets10 in the Hebrew Bible. However, not all the events, and not everything written in the Hebrew Bible is the inspired or revealed word of Yahweh. Not all accounts are correct historically, or in complete harmony with Yahweh’s General Revelation. The Hebrew Bible ‘contains’ the inspired word of Yahweh but it also contains the uninspired passed-on words, primitive exaggerated recollections, conjecture, and folk-tales of ordinary mortal men. We believe that there are ‘books’ in the Hebrew Bible like Ruth, Esther, Jonah, and Job that are clear examples of Israelite folk-tales, they are (once-upon-a-time) stories. Their collection and place, in Hebrew Bible history is to promote morals, i.e. lessons, but they have nothing to do with actual historical events, and they should not be considered factual.
We believe that Salvation/redemption11 that brings eternal life (salvation) was Yahweh’s promise to the ancient chosen Israelites by Covenant. However, through time, this promise also became available to the stranger (the non- blood Israelite) and to all who become True Israelites by accepting the same Covenant/Contract12 made with ancient Israel. Yahweh redeems those who sin against Him through sincere repentance.13 The promise of eternal life is given the repentant sinner because of His abundant mercy, for what is good, through the keeping of His Covenant/Contract (the 10 Commandments).14 “What does Yahweh require of you, but to act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your Almighty.”15 All those who accept Yahweh as their Redeemer16 will, because of gratefulness, worship Him only,17 becoming sons, daughters and eternal members of His heavenly household. We believe that because the Temple and the ancient Yahudi Religious system was destroyed In 70 CE18 the external Covenant/contract was then Renewed19 and is now written within the hearts of all true Yahweh believers and no longer requires priests to administer it.
Becoming a True Covenant Israelite does not mean each has now become perfect, but all will continue to mature and seek Yahweh for strength and direction, to seek His counsel toward keeping the covenant and to repent when they stumble. As members of Yahweh’s earthly household each will strive for a relationship with their Heavenly Father Yahweh that will continue to grow. This is the meaning of the “Kingdom of Yahweh/of heaven”20 that comes to dwell within each believer, as was taught by the prophet Yahshua (aka Jesus). At the end of this life on earth each can then look forward to an eternal life, to be with Him and remain forever faithful members of His heavenly household. We look for a glorious eternal life; for dwelling in a new body throughout the far reaches and endless vastness of Yahweh's immense creation forever dwelling in His eternal Universe; to partake in His new plan for us in His Kingdom and to join forever with the existing innumerable heavenly host as new members of His endless Universal household.21
We believe that the Greek Bible known as the Greek New Testament Bible (NT) does not contain the inspired22 word of the Almighty. The synoptic gospels and the book called Acts record events that may have occurred, but were recorded many years after they had happened, therefore all are hearsay, and not verifiable. Other documents in the NT Bible recount sayings from the recollection of those that may have heard the prophet speak many years ago. A few letters claim to have been written by Apostles. About 1/3 of the NT Bible consists of letters that have been written by the Pharisee Paul to various Churches he founded after 50 CE. These letters contain his personal opinions, since he never met Yahshua and was never taught by him, so he simply presented his own religious ideology to these Churches. Some letters make the claim to have been written by the Pharisee Paul, but were likely written by others using his name. The letter called the Gospel of John stands apart from the synoptic letters and develops Yahshua (Jesus) into a pre-existing god-man. Such a concept is completely foreign (and pagan) to the One Almighty defined and taught to us in the OT Bible. The synoptic Gospels of Mathew, Mark and Luke (all by unknown author(s) date many years before the Gospel called John was written. The synoptic Gospels all teach us by using the (recalled) words of the prophet Yahshua. Like the Hebrew Bible, the synoptic Gospels also teach that YHWH the Creator Father, revealed in the Hebrew Bible, is the only One Almighty Sovereign who is good. We are taught to worship Him only, and to have eternal life one must keep the commandments. Matt. 7: 21; Matt. 19: 16-17. The Gospel called John was written by unknown author(s), sometime in the Second Century, this Gospel spiritualizes Yahshua into a pre-existing sacrificial god-man. All such ideology was developed from pagan origins, and it is all false.
Because of the many conflicts and theology errors in the book called John, it is obvious that it was most likely an early second century forgery (along with John 1, 2, and 3) all designed to separate the “early Christian” religious movement from Biblical Yahwism (Israelism) truth that was taught throughout the Hebrew Bible. The pre-existing Yahshua (Jesus) “god the son” concept found in the Gospel called John does not mesh with the “son of man” concept Yahshua himself claimed to be throughout the earlier written Synoptic Gospels. We feel that the evidence is very clear, that the Gospel called John as well as John 1, 2, and 3, are false documents and that they promote unreliable false theology. The gospel called John has unfortunately been the root cause for the many false doctrines that have been adopted into fundamental Christianity. Many of these false doctrines are now found as basic Christian beliefs, but they ignore the teachings of the prophet Yahshua himself who only used the Hebrew Bible as his source.
History records that early NT Christianity was also known as Marcionism. Marcionism began about 140 CE, in an attempt by a wealthy Greek named Marcion to develop a gentile theology to replace Israelism as found in the Hebrew Bible which he hated. The Spiritualistic-Jesus-god ideology found in the Gospel called John likely contributed toward the making of much of Marcion’s early Christianity. Marcion’s notion was of two gods; that the god of the Hebrew Bible was not the true god, but that the true god was being revealed through a spiritualized Jesus; that Jesus was the creator-god of the earth. Marcion attempted to reconcile his perceived contradictions between his hatred for the Israelites, their Yahudi religious leaders, their One Almighty Sovereign named Yahweh, and their entire Hebrew Bible. He therefore developed a new “all inclusive replacement god” that he believed was revealed by “Jesus.” In Marcion theology, the God of the Hebrew Bible is not the same as the God of the NT Bible. The original NT Bible was actually first compiled by Marcion in the Second Century A.D. If it wasn’t for Marcion and his collection of early religious writings and Gospels, there may never have been a “Christian” NT Bible. Marcion’s early Christianity however, was eventually rejected, when he proposed it to be adopted by the Roman Church. In time, Marcion’s Christianity was revised and replaced by a reworked Roman Catholic Christianity that was developed by the appointed Roman Catholic priests, who were directed and controlled by the Roman Emperor Constantine. This occurred about 325 (early in the third Century CE).
The NT Bible we have today and the resulting religion of Christianity was sifted and developed from thousands of available documents collected during the first four centuries CE, mostly by the Constantine Roman Catholic Church. The has been manipulated, changed, revised, added to, and recompiled before the collection became the current 27 books of the NT Bible. The Roman Catholic Church formally adopted their 27 books of their NT Bible by their Catholic Synod of Carthage in 397 CE. It subsequently became the acceptable Christian NT Bible we have today. Changes to the Catholic NT Bible are no longer permitted since they have solidified it as the final acceptable NT Bible composition.
Many of the ancient documents (books) that did not meet the theology or “god type” requirements by Constantine’s Rome Catholic Church were destroyed or stored in the Vatican to eliminate any future contest. Much of what is remaining in the current NT Bible cannot be considered historically reliable, factual or dependable. History indicates fraudulent activity started very soon in the beginning development of the NT Bible by Constantine’s Roman Catholic Priests; this also makes the NT Bible unreliable for developing a solid foundation for any religious belief. Many doctrines that have been developed add to Yahweh’s word (that can only found in the Hebrew Bible) thereby becoming “a man-made NT Bible” but not a Yahweh inspired Bible. Mormonism, Talmudic Judaism, Christianity, and other religions often loosely use the OT Bible but do not follow the word of Yahweh as revealed in it by the prophets. These religions are not reliable and often tend to develop false doctrines. Yahshua throughout his ministry taught freedom from what had become the authoritative religious slavery of the governmental religious rulers of his day (the Yahudi priests with their oral Torah). Some 350 years later Constantine Romanism would re-establish similar religious control by elevating Roman priests and their Christianity on the people in a similar manner.
Although the NT Bible was solidified by the Roman Catholic Church, there have been many subsequent English translations made. Over time, anyone can tell where many deceptive words have been added, deleted or passages modified to change the meaning of the older more original Greek. These changes are often done to support various preconceived Christian doctrines. However, the Catholic-developed NT Bible still remains the basic NT Bible used today, including their basic Roman Catholic doctrines, even when retranslated by other Christian Church denominations. The Roman Catholic Church remains the “Mother Church” of Christianity for all Christian Churches today.
True Bible Beliefs vs. Errors of Belief in Modern Christianity
We believe circumcision23 is a requirement for all new born males that are of the descendants of Abraham through Jacob/Israel; it is a sign of the covenant for male Israelites, and symbolizes a separation for Yahweh.
We do not condemn the uncircumcised as adults, nor require their circumcision after the fact, or omitted in ignorance by the parents.
We believe in keeping Yahweh’s food law - some animals are created to be used for food and some are not. We do not condemn those who do not adhere to Yahweh’s food laws, but believe that these laws have been provided for our health and benefit. Yahweh as the Creator of them would know the good food from the bad.
Statement on abortion: We believe that a conception resulting from a documented rape, incest, or that would present a medical risk to the life of the woman, falls into the category of “self-defense.” We believe that personal self-defense is Biblically permitted and legitimatized by the principles outlined within the Hebrew Bible, and that the matter of self-defense and preservation of a victim’s life should always hold in our mind as would any other legitimate but transitory matter or situation requiring an action. An evil act such as a conception from rape could last 9 months and stresses the body and health of the victim from an evil act. This we believe permits the victim to Biblically and righteously choose to abort. However, the act of abortion for any other reason(s) like convenience, would (in our opinion) be Biblically considered murder (by the woman, and by the abortionist).
Sexual Deviation: Yahweh gave admonitions against specific sexual perversions in detail.24 We believe that the Hebrew Bible sets the standards for sexual relationships - All homosexual activity, promiscuous behavior, promotion of sex deviation, reconditioning, unnatural gender modification, permitting gender choice, imitating the opposite sex, cross dressing and the like and sexual activity outside the marriage union of one woman and one man are all perversions of Biblical principles. We are not talking here of “birth defects” affecting gender that may require surgical correction. We recognize that such defects, although rare, could exist at birth.
Statement on the Assembly (Church): We believe in assembling together for worship, for fellowship, for instruction on the weekly Sabbath, and in a future coming of a global assembly of all True Israelite Believers.
Replacement theology has several definitions, but we define it as: The belief that the Greek New Testament Bible (NT) and the doctrines or beliefs developed from it replaces those taught in the Hebrew Old Testament Bible (OT Bible). Since it is named the “NEW” Testament does it really usurp the “Old” Testament? Answer - absolutely NO.
The false concept of NT Bible replacement Theology began with the Pharisee Paul/Saul’s vision in the First Century 50 CE and it continues today. Completely missing is the fact, that Jesus never used the NT Bible because it did not exist, and was not compiled until 325 CE which was many years after Yahshua walked the sands of Palestine. Significant errors have developed by using the NT Bible and Replacement Theology because many of the doctrines that have developed from it are a continuance of ancient pagan beliefs, all mixed-in with other man-made additions.
The New Testament teaches that Jesus was a prophet25 with the Hebrew name Yahshua26 Yahshua in Hebrew means Yahweh-saves. According to the synoptic gospels27 Yahshua was sent to the Lost Tribes of the house of Israel.28 Yahshua was called “the son of Yahweh” by some followers, but called himself, the son of man.29 Yahshua was a natural born Israelite man; a prophet sent to Israel30 to preach repentance and to announce that the Kingdom of Yahweh/of heaven was at hand.31 Yahshua’s mission was to teach32 First Century Israel, and to save them from the oral traditions and man-made laws that had enslaved them.33 His mission included a prophecy of judgment that was coming in their generation 34 through Rome. This judgment would destroy the corrupt Temple worship system and Jerusalem. Because Yahshua was faithful to his mission it resulted in his execution.35
The error of the Trinity - The trinity concept is pagan, and it is foreign to the teachings of both the Hebrew Bible and the Greek NT Bible. The English word “spirit” in the Hebrew Bible and in the NT Bible means wind, or air.37 Air is not a person, but it is a simple presence of motivation. Yahweh is the only non-physical Life-Force that fills His entire ever-existing endless created Universe, sustaining and directing all. Yahweh is the “Holy Spirit” since it would be absurd to believe there are two “Holy Spirits” in the heavens. Yahweh is incorporate (not physical), but Yahshua however was physical (a created human being).38
The error of Human Sacrifice – Human or animal sacrifices to receive forgiveness for sin is pagan. Yahweh does not need a human or animal to die, or a food payment in order for Him to forgive sin. He receives no benefit from such pagan activity. Human sacrifice is forbidden by Him and is condemned. Yahweh tells Israel that Human sacrifice is such a horrible concept to Him, that it did not even come into “His mind” or to demand it from His people.39 This means that Yahweh would never accept the death of an appointed and anointed prophet like Yahshua on a pagan stake as a sacrifice (blood payment) for the forgiveness of another person’s sin.40 The very idea that Yahweh requires human or animal sacrifice to forgive sins is not found in the Hebrew Bible.41
The error of a Satan, devils and demons - The Hebrew Bible does not teach the concept of free roaming “spirit beings” with powers to compete with their own Creator. The word “satan” used in the Hebrew Bible means an “adversary or opponent” The word “satan”42 in Hebrew is not a “name” but refers to a position someone has taken by becoming an adversary or opponent to someone else. Even Yahweh can at times become an adversary, or an opponent. Prior to Moses many Israelites had become influenced by the pagan nations around them and were worshiping false god(s) and devils; all were idols or objects made or carved of stone or wood. Polytheism and idol (or devil) worship is of a pure pagan origin. Furthermore, it would be a complete “oxymoron” and a really absurd idea for Yahweh, who is the Almighty Sovereign Eternal Creator Power of all things, to even be remotely challenged by one of His own created celestial beings (angels).
The error of a physical Hell – a place of endless torment for the wicked. This belief of a hell as promoted by Roman Catholic paintings and drawings of purgatory44 is false. The Hebrew Bible does not teach the concept of a Christian hell. The Hebrew word “Sheol” 43 is the word that is sometimes translated as Hell in English translations, but the word by Hebrew definition means “grave” or place of the dead. It is the place where the body goes after someone dies. It is the same place for the bodies of both the good and bad. The plain fact is everyone’s body goes to the grave after death. If there was a place of “eternal torture,” a hell, even the wicked would have eternal life. The fact is the body of the wicked returns dust, the soul dies, but we believe that the soul of the righteous continues on to be with their Almighty Creator.
Note: Because we believe that all true doctrines of belief must come from the Almighty Himself as He has revealed them through the anointed appointed Prophets of the Hebrew Bible, all subsequent doctrines that have their origin in a source other then the Hebrew Bible must all be man’s attempt to develop the “thoughts” of G-d. These doctrines are developed for control, manipulation, advantage, or for power to capture wealth for religious institutions, and capture the human mass through 30,000 +45 (last count) Christian denominations.
Since this is a dependable fact, it is likely developed from the obvious confusion and tangled thought and opinions expressed in the uninspired NT Bible. We believe all the following Christian doctrinal devises to be false, and far outside of Yahweh’s inspired instructions through the anointed Prophets and precepts found in the Torah.46
The error of “Baptismal regeneration” – Baptism (adults only) is simply an external public act for expressing internal repentance, i.e. the repentance for a life of wickedness and intent toward a new life of righteousness. Baptism is not a requirement for salvation or for obtaining eternal life.
The error of “Justification” by faith”- In the Biblical, justification is never by “faith.” It is through faithfulness.47 The word “faith” in English translations of the NT Bible comes from the Greek word “Pistis” and has the Greek meaning of “persuasion.” The English word “faith” has the meaning of “trust or confidence” in the statement or action of another, which without evidence can be true or false, good or bad. That is why Biblical justification is only achieved through “faithfulness” (the expressed deliberate action by the individual).
The error of “original sin”– Calling everyone a sinner at birth because of the sin of Adam and Eve’s disobedience, is false. Biblically, sin occurs by individual choice. Sins or offenses coming from the one are not passed on to another. Each person is responsible for his own actions, whether they are good, or bad.48
The error of “Holy Communion”– The sacrament of the “lord’s supper” developed by Romanism has become analogous to pagan cannibalism. Such act even if imaginary is repulsive and not found in the Hebrew Bible.
The error of a “Second Coming” - A cover-up belief that comes from the misinterpretation of events in the NT Bible due to the fact that the expected rule of Jesus did not come to pass during the First Century. However, it did come to pass according to the NT Bible. Judgment was to come and did come upon Israel in 70 CE by way of Rome, Matt. 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21 when the Temple was destroyed. Because this prophesy was not understood, the doctrine of a future coming was developed, to correct the earlier belief of an earthly kingdom. The Second Coming doctrine is false, but it is still unfortunately being promoted.
The error of “a Future Earthly Kingdom” – Both Christianity and Judaism believe in a coming Messiah that will correct all the problems they see happening in the world. Christians believe this has to be by the second coming of Jesus. Jews do not believe that Jesus met their qualifications for their Messiah, so they are waiting for their own coming Messiah to correct the world problems (and put Jews in control). Christians have waited 2000 years and Jews about 2600 years. Well, if both are wrong, what happened to Yahweh’s control over His Creation? The answer is – The Kingdom of Yahweh/ of heaven49 is within you! All will remain in complete control by Yahweh since He is the Original –originator of all that exists, of all that is, and of all that will ever be.
The errors of “progressive revelation”- Nothing is more dangerous to Biblical truth than the concept of “progressive revelation.” This concept permits any new unverifiable revelation to develop into a new Religious Organization with their new beliefs and doctrines. Many have developed from the NT Bible, by the imaginations of men simply because of the many inconsistencies in the NT Bible. What this does, is develop power to those holding the new revelation since they are the authorities. Complicated and illogical beliefs always seem to require “church” leaders. Such beliefs however, often tend to direct vulnerable persons away from the simple principles in the Hebrew Bible, as was inspired by Yahweh to the anointed prophets, and as was taught by Yahshua (Jesus) using the Torah.
Homosexuality, Adultery (miscegenation, racial mixing in marriages), Fornication, Abortion, Pedophilia, Sodomy, homosexual marriages, that from the so-called LGTBQ “community” etc., all these types are abominations to Yahweh and forbidden for Bible believers. We do not accept these behaviors as acceptable or moral. These perverted actions are also violations of Yahweh’s General Laws and any such violations by man will always result in punishment or eventually, lead to undesirable consequences. There are no “free rides” when the laws of Yahweh are broken. Furthermore, all religious organizations whose leaders and congregations willfully accept such behaviors are pseudo-believers. Attendance to their services should be avoided by those who walk in or are seeking to obey the Scriptural 10 Commandments, the Covenant/Contract of Yahweh for True Israel.
Government and civil order:
We believe that Yahweh’s Torah is perfect; therefore, a government in the form of a theocracy based upon Yahweh’s Torah (Law) is a far superior system to govern a nation than man-made laws, rules, and regulations. Man-made laws, rules, and ordinances will ultimately result in enslaving the people through greed and self-serving leadership. We are not to add to or diminish from the commandments that Yahweh has given to us by manmade ordinances (Deut. 4:1-2), therefore only the laws Yahweh as has been given us in His Torah are sufficient.
We believe that all present world problems are a result of disobedience to the principles of Torah’s (Special Revelation) to the Israelites, (Deut. 28). For non-Israelite nations, it is because of disobedience to the Natural Laws (General Revelation) that they have been given. Both laws are provided by Yahweh for maintaining order and civility in societies and when kept will bring blessings to the upholder, but when violated will bring curses.
All praise to Yahweh, the Almighty Sovereign Creator Life-Force Essence of all that exists.

10 Deut. 13:1 If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you, and he gives you a sign or a wonder, Deut 13:2 and the sign or the wonder comes to pass, of which he spoke to you, saying, “Let’s go after other gods (which you have not known) and let’s serve them;” Deut 13:3 you shall not listen to the words of that prophet, or to that dreamer of dreams; for Yahweh your Mighty One is proving you, to know whether you love Yahweh your Mighty One with all your heart and with all your soul.

I will give them an everlasting name that will not be cut off.

18 In 70 CE, the Roman army led by Titus conquered the city of Jerusalem. The siege ended with the burning and destruction of the Second Temple. The conquest of the city was complete on September 8, 70 CE. We believe this historical event ushered in Yahweh’s “Renewed Covenant.” This was timed by the complete destruction of what became the corrupted cultic Temple worship system. For the Yahudi, this was seen as the end of their physical world (the Temple), and their spiritual world (the priesthood).
19 Jeremiah 31:31 “Behold, the days come,” says Yahweh, “that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah. . . But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days,” says Yahweh: I will put my law in their inward parts, and I will write it in their heart. I will be their Mighty One, and they shall be my people.
