[ The Continuance of Truth ]
 

Introduction

At various times in the history of Israel the work of Yahweh’s true ministry reached a point where drastic changes needed to be made. These changes were necessary for the preservation of truth and righteousness. Corrupt influences crept in and threatened to destroy Yahweh’s true work. Men such as Noah, EliYah, Jeremiah and even our Savior Yahshua the Messiah were called upon to oppose the corrupt forces at work in the organized ministry and take a stand for what is true and right. That is what the continuance of Truth is all about. As this has occurred repeatedly in the past, there should be no wonder that it occurs now in these end-times as well. As such, this is an important issue that needs to be addressed and understood by all True Worshipers.

The Warning to Come Out of Babylon

Yahshua the Messiah has warned us to come out of the corruption of this world by coming out of Babylon. Realize that Babylon encompasses all of corrupt religion. That would include all religious groups that are not keeping the Truth in accordance with the Sacred Scriptures no matter how great or small their defection is from the Truth. Consider this thought in light of the prophetic plea that Yahshua makes to his people in the book of Revelation. “After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illumined with his glory. And he cried out with a mighty voice, saying, "Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird. "For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the passion of her immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality." I heard another voice from heaven, saying, "Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues; for her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and Yahweh has remembered her iniquities. "Pay her back even as she has paid, and give back to her double according to her deeds; in the cup which she has mixed, mix twice as much for her.” (Revelation 18:1-6)

Yahweh will severely judge Babylon and those associated with it. Babylon the Great is usually understood to represent grossly corrupted religion. This is true. But, realize that it applies also to groups like the Pharisees of Yahshua’s day. As the caretakers of the sacred Scriptures within the confines of synagogue worship, the Pharisees were part of the corruption of Babylon. Being a close counterfeit of the Truth made them the greatest threat to True Worship. Yahshua chastised them for following the traditions of men (which were derived from Babylon) rather than keeping the true commandments of Yahweh.

Notice what Yahshua says in Mark 7:5-10. “The Pharisees and the scribes asked Him, "Why do your disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat their bread with impure hands?" And He said to them, "Rightly did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written: 'THIS PEOPLE HONORS ME WITH THEIR LIPS, BUT THEIR HEART IS FAR AWAY FROM ME. 'BUT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, TEACHING AS DOCTRINES THE PRECEPTS OF MEN.' "Neglecting the commandment of Yahweh, you hold to the tradition of men." He was also saying to them, "You are experts at setting aside the commandment of Yahweh in order to keep your tradition.”

We must especially beware of those modern-day Pharisees who pay lip service to the Truth while they teach the doctrines of a man or men as they neglect the commandments of Yahweh. Any association with them will bring judgment from Yahweh. The time for separation is now!

Breaking From Corruption

Those of us who have been involved with Truth oriented organizations need to thoroughly examine the workings of those groups to see if indeed they are “True Worship.” Just because they keep the Sabbath and feast days, just because they use the Sacred Names, just because they eat clean foods, and just because they even keep the sabbatical year, does not in and of itself mean that these groups are in fact True Worship. As the saying goes “The proof of the pudding is in the eating,” and the proof of doctrine is in the doing. “Many will say to Me on that day, "Master, Master, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?' "And then I will declare to them, "I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.'" (Matt 7:22-23)

It is an astounding thought that Yahshua will reject many of the people who use his name because they practice lawlessness. Again, be advised that there are modern-day Pharisees who outwardly are totally circumspect with keeping the law. Inwardly, they lack the true love of Yahweh. They therefore are guilty of practicing lawlessness. “For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles in one point, he has become guilty of all,” James 2:10

The brethren who are involved with this ministry have made a break from the corruption we found in our former religious affiliation. We tried our best (without success) to remove the corruption from that body of believers. It therefore became necessary for us to follow the precept of Revelation 18:4 and come out of the corruption of Babylon. This ministry is in fact not something new. It is a continuance of Yahweh’s true worship. Just as Yahshua separated himself from the Scribes, Pharisees, and Sadducees of his time so we have separated ourselves from their modern equivalents.

End-time Prophecy is Being Fulfilled

We have seen the fulfillment of various prophetic passages of scripture. This has caused us to join together as a body of believers for the purpose of preserving Yahweh’s True Worship in these end-times. It is our intention to warn others of the corruption that they face in their religious affiliation and to offer those who heed that warning a place in which to go. The Apostle Paul warned his disciple Timothy of this subversive corruption. “But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron, men who forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods which Yahweh has created to be gratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth.” (1 Tim 4:1-3)

We are living in the later times spoken of here. It is important to our salvation that we are aware of how this prophecy applies to us as Yahweh’s end-time believers. Yes the fallen ones are at work as they follow deceitful spirits instead of the Holy Spirit. They teach their own ideas rather than sound Biblical doctrine. A corrupt leadership makes void the Law of Yahweh with oppressive doctrines of demons. They forbid marriage of some and advocate abstaining from food which Torah legislates as being clean. Consequently, they are guilty of transgressing against the covenant by adding to and diminishing from Yahweh’s Word, Deuteronomy 4:2.

What the Apostle Paul writes here ties in with what we have already learned. These hypocritical liars are at work teaching counterfeit and confusing doctrines that come from the paganism of ancient Babylon. The doctrines of demons are in effect the teachings or policies of any man that take precedence over the Word of Almighty Yahweh. Yahweh will always continue His Truth by bringing forth His true people from the spiritual Babylon of the modern-day Pharisees.

Worshipping Yahweh in Spirit and in Truth!

During his ministry, Yahshua was continually being confronted by the religious establishment of his day. For the most part that was the Sadducees and the Pharisees. The Sadducees were of the priestly Aaronic aristocracy. They controlled the Temple worship and were strongly associated with King Herod and his governmental control. On the other hand, the Pharisees functioned on the local level, as they were the ones who controlled the synagogues. Yahshua’s ministry was totally separate from these groups. He recognized that it was impossible to reform them because of their corruption. He chose rather to bring forth a continuance of the Truth from the various followers of those groups who chose to join his ministry. Yahshua did not start something new. He brought forth purity from that which was corrupt. "No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; otherwise the patch pulls away from it, the new from the old, and a worse tear results. No one puts new wine into old wineskins; otherwise the wine will burst the skins, and the wine is lost and the skins as well; but one puts new wine into fresh wineskins." (Mark 2:21-22)

Yahshua is proposing here the continuation of the Truth by putting new wine in fresh skins. The religion of the Pharisee’s would have represented one aspect of the old wine skins that cannot hold the new wine. Mainstream Judaism for the most part had the Truth, but they obviously lacked important spiritual aspects. Yahweh seeks out people who will worship him in a specific way. They must be new wine skins if they are to hold the new wine. They must worship Him in both spirit and truth. “But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. "Yahweh is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth." (John 4:23-24)

We see from this passage of scripture that there are two main components of True Worship. They are the Holy Spirit of Yahweh and the Truth of the Word. There are many Truth oriented religious groups. But, having the truth alone is not enough. The true body of the Messiah must have the Holy Spirit along with that Truth. Bear in mind that it is possible to have the Truth and not have the Holy Spirit.

The Apostle John has warned us that there is the Spirit of Truth and the spirit of error. Once again, we must beware! “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from Yahweh, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of Yahweh: every spirit that confesses that Yahshua Messiah has come in the flesh is from Yahweh; and every spirit that does not confess Yahshua is not from Yahweh; this is the spirit of the anti-messiah, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world. You are from Yahweh, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. They are from the world; therefore they speak as from the world, and the world listens to them. We are from Yahweh; he who knows Yahweh listens to us; he who is not from Yahweh does not listen to us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.” (1 John 4:1-6)

The Word of Yahweh shows repeatedly that the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth. See John 14:17; 15:26; 16:13 and 1 John 4:6. Each of theses verses refers to the Holy Spirit as the Spirit of Truth! True Worshipers will always have the Holy Spirit of Yahweh along with the Truth.

The Fruit of the Spirit

Those who have the Holy Spirit of Yahweh are keeping Almighty Yahweh’s commandments, Acts 5:32. Along with that, they are bearing the fruit of the Spirit. Love is at the forefront of the fruit. “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. Now those who belong to Messiah Yahshua have impaled the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. Let us not become boastful, challenging one another, envying one another.” (Gal. 5:22-26)

It is our intention to possess the Spirit of Truth along with the fruit of the Spirit and thereby worship Yahweh in Spirit and in Truth. For this reason we have separated ourselves from our former religious affiliation. Ironically we have seen first hand how the corruption of the Pharisees is still at work. Outwardly, what these corrupt groups teach is very close to the Truth. Inwardly, these organizations are corrupt. We would not argue against teaching that the leaders of these groups are the ones who presently sit in Moses seat. We totally agree with Yahshua’s assessment of them, their position, and their corruptness due to hypocrisy. People in this category are not bearing the fruit of the Spirit. “Then Yahshua spoke to the crowds and to His disciples, saying: "The scribes and the Pharisees have seated themselves in the chair of Moses; therefore all that they tell you, do and observe, but do not do according to their deeds; for they say things and do not do them. "They tie up heavy burdens and lay them on men's shoulders, but they themselves are unwilling to move them with so much as a finger. "But they do all their deeds to be noticed by men; for they broaden their phylacteries and lengthen the tassels of their garments. "They love the place of honor at banquets and the chief seats in the synagogues, and respectful greetings in the market places, and being called Rabbi by men. "But do not be called Rabbi; for One is your Teacher, and you are all brothers. "Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. "Do not be called leaders; for One is your Leader, that is, Messiah. "But the greatest among you shall be your servant. "Whoever exalts himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted." (Matt 23:1-12)

Sadly, we have had to face the fact that people like this and the organizations that they control are not re-formable. They lack the humility to admit that they are making mistakes and to correct those mistakes. Outwardly, as they pay lip service to the Truth, they appear to be perfect. Inwardly they are vile and detestable hypocrites who refuse correction. Salvation is not to be found with these people. They obviously lack the Holy Spirit. Yahshua strongly denounces them for their hypocritical leadership. “But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you shut off the kingdom of heaven from people; for you do not enter in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in. ["Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you devour widows' houses, and for a pretense you make long prayers; therefore you will receive greater condemnation.] "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you travel around on sea and land to make one proselyte; and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves. "Woe to you, blind guides, who say, "Whoever swears by the temple, that is nothing; but whoever swears by the gold of the temple is obligated.' "You fools and blind men! Which is more important, the gold or the temple that sanctified the gold? "And, "Whoever swears by the altar, that is nothing, but whoever swears by the offering on it, he is obligated.' "You blind men, which is more important, the offering, or the altar that sanctifies the offering? "Therefore, whoever swears by the altar, swears both by the altar and by everything on it. "And whoever swears by the temple, swears both by the temple and by Him who dwells within it. "And whoever swears by heaven, swears both by the throne of Yahweh and by Him who sits upon it. "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint and dill and cummin, and have neglected the weightier provisions of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness; but these are the things you should have done without neglecting the others. "You blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel! "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and of the dish, but inside they are full of robbery and self-indulgence. "You blind Pharisee, first clean the inside of the cup and of the dish, so that the outside of it may become clean also. "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which on the outside appear beautiful, but inside they are full of dead men's bones and all uncleanness. "So you, too, outwardly appear righteous to men, but inwardly you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness. "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous, and say, "If we had been living in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partners with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.' "So you testify against yourselves, that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets. "Fill up, then, the measure of the guilt of your fathers. "You serpents, you brood of vipers, how will you escape the sentence of hell? "Therefore, behold, I am sending you prophets and wise men and scribes; some of them you will kill and impale, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues, and persecute from city to city, so that upon you may fall the guilt of all the righteous blood shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. "Truly I say to you, all these things will come upon this generation.” (Matt 23:13-36)

Considering what Yahshua brings out against the Pharisees, it is no wonder that he choose not to reform them. Instead, he rose up a continuation of the Truth from the perverseness the Pharisees had created. By having the fruit of the Spirit and most importantly by having true love, Yahshua and his disciples were in opposition to the Pharisees and all that they stood for. Yahshua’s life was a living testimony to what the Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 13. He teaches that regardless of the greatness of a person, if they don’t have love, they don’t have anything. Love is the great barrier between truth and error. Obviously ancient and modern Pharisees lack the important fruit love.

Persecution Causes True Worship to Continue

The corruptness of these hypocrites, then and now, is such that they are the ones who do in fact persecute Yahweh’s true people. Literally and figuratively, the fathers of these people persecuted the prophets of Yahweh in ancient times. They themselves persecuted Yahshua and the apostolic assembly. And, in these end-times, the modern-day Scribes and Pharisees persecute us. “Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. "Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. "Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” (Matt 5:10-12)

Don’t be discouraged by the oppression of corrupt leaders who persecute the true spiritual Body of the Messiah. Yahshua revealed them for what they are so that his true people could be encouraged and raised up from the depths of depression. Yahweh has made a way for his people to go whereby they can find safety in a spiritual body of believers. That spiritual body of believers is the continuance of Truth. Yahweh brings them out of the corruption of these modern-day Pharisees.

The emergence of the spiritual Body of the Messiah at the end of the age is the direct result of persecution. Although it is difficult to deal with, persecution is the fire that purifies Yahweh’s true spiritual people. It is the force that brings forth the true end-time members of Yahweh’s Philadelphia congregation. “Now if any man builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each man's work will become evident; for the day will show it because it is to be revealed with fire, and the fire itself will test the quality of each man's work. If any man's work which he has built on it remains, he will receive a reward. If any man's work is burned up, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.” (1 Cor 3:12-15)

Those who keep His word will be persecuted. Yahshua shall keep them safe during the tribulation that is to come on all the earth. “And to the angel of the [congregation] in Philadelphia write: He who is holy, who is true, who has the key of David, who opens and no one will shut, and who shuts and no one opens, says this: "I know your deeds. Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut, because you have a little power, and have kept My word, and have not denied My name.

"Behold, I will cause those of the synagogue of Satan, who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie -- I will make them come and bow down at your feet, and make them know that I have loved you. "Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. "I am coming quickly; hold fast what you have, so that no one will take your crown.” (Rev 3:7-11)

The persecution of the saints at the end of the age will most certainly have the effect of separating the spiritual body of the Messiah from those of the synagogue of Satan (the synagogue of Satan being those who have defected from the truth). Remember that those whom he and his disciples separated themselves from were the ones who persecuted Yahshua to death. Yahshua, the Apostles and disciples remained separate from the religious corruption around them.

The Continuation of the Truth Brings A Separation

Many times Almighty Yahweh has allowed divisions to occur within the physical body of believers to separate the good people who possess a spiritual attitude from the evil ones who are motivated by the flesh. That was the case in the Corinthian congregation. “For there must also be factions among you, so that those who are approved may become evident among you.” (1 Cor 11:19)

It is Yahweh’s will that his approved people should be made manifest in opposition to those who are corrupted. At the present time the spiritual hardships that some of Yahweh’s people face are difficult to bear. Yet, these things are happening for good reason. That reason is the coming forth of the true Philadelphia congregation in these last days. They are known by their good fruits. They are contradicted and opposed by wicked counterfeits of whom they must beware. Yahshua tells us to watch out for false prophets who masquerade as sheep in Yahweh’s flock. “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. "You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? "So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. "A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. "Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. "So then, you will know them by their fruits." (Matt 7:15-20)

The fruit that comes forth must determine our religious affiliation. We can only continue in the Truth as long as we are spiritually connected with those who bear good fruit. That means being a fruit inspector. According to the fruit we must separate ourselves from evil. As the Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 15:33, Do not be deceived: "Bad company corrupts good morals." Those who associate with corrupt people will ultimately be corrupted!

We must be willing to separate ourselves from such evil and corruption. The Truth will continue and Yahshua will return regardless of the stand we take or our position on Truth. Yahweh does not need us, we need Yahweh! Who we choose to associate with has a pronounced bearing on our personal salvation. The choice is ours.

John the Baptist spoke out strongly against the corrupt leaders of his time. He directly warned them of judgment for their lack of repentance. “But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming for baptism, he said to them, "You brood of vipers, who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? "Therefore bear fruit in keeping with repentance; and do not suppose that you can say to yourselves, "We have Abraham for our father'; for I say to you that from these stones Yahweh is able to raise up children to Abraham. "The axe is already laid at the root of the trees; therefore every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.” (Matt 3:7-10)

By coming forth from that which is corrupt we are not starting something new. We are preserving true worship out from counterfeit corruption. The continuation of the Truth goes on with or without us! We must examine our own fruits and the fruits of others to determine where we should be.

It Is The Last Hour—Anti-Messiah Comes

The prediction that some will fall away from the Truth is made in a number of different passages of scripture. The foretold end-time apostasy will culminate in the appearance of the man of sin—the anti-Messiah. Those who follow his teaching are defectors from the Truth. They will cause the final onslaught against those who remain faithful and continue in the Truth.

Consider the warning from the Apostle Paul for those of us in the end-times. “Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Master Yahshua Messiah and our gathering together to Him, that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of Yahweh has come. Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called elohim or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of Elohim, displaying himself as being Elohim. Do you not remember that while I was still with you, I was telling you these things? And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way. Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Sovereign Yahshua will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. For this reason Yahweh will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.” (2 Thess 2:1-12)

Those who go the way of anti-messiah are defectors from the true faith. These did not receive the love of the Truth. By defecting from the Truth, the Truth ends for them. It is therefore left to those who remain faithful to the Truth to continue on. As Paul stated in 1 Corinthians 11:19, those that are approved (faithful to the Truth) will be made manifest among Yahweh’s people. They will be known by their good fruits, which are a reflection of the fruit of the Spirit.

In these end-times, we must recognize that the mystery of lawlessness is at work. The corrupt force of anti-messiah will cause a predicted apostasy to occur within the Body of the Messiah. Prophesy reveals that some of the leaders will assimilate false doctrine and will become false prophets. Many shall follow their wicked ways. “But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves. Many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of the truth will be maligned.” (2 Peter 2:1-2)

Those who follow these false teachers have left the Truth. Those of us who recognize and oppose these false prophets and teachers are the keepers of the Truth. We have not left the Truth, they have. Our separation from them was caused by them and not by us. By leaving the Truth those evil ones have gone out from us. Once again prophecy is fulfilled. The last hour has come and the spirit of anti-messiah is at work. “Children, it is the last hour; and just as you heard that anti-messiah is coming, even now many anti-messiahs have appeared; from this we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they were not really of us; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us; but they went out, so that it would be shown that they all are not of us. But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you all know. I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it, and because no lie is of the truth. Who is the liar but the one who denies that Yahshua is the Messiah? This is the anti-messiah, the one who denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father; the one who confesses the Son has the Father also. As for you, let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father.” (1 John 2:18-24)

These things are revealed to those who know the Truth. Brethren and friends, it is the last hour. The spirit of anti-Messiah is at work deceiving many people. Those who are deceived have been diverted from keeping the fullness of the Truth. Though they have become a close counterfeit to the Truth, the fact remains that they are apostate from the Truth.

Conclusion

Now that we have heard from the Word of Yahweh, let us react according to the leading of Yahweh’s Holy Spirit. Let us be fruit inspectors who through the Truth make up our minds to totally come out of Babylon. If we are to remain in the Truth we must follow the leading of the Holy Spirit of Yahweh and choose correctly whom we will follow. We must understand that we are living in the end-times and that prophecy is being fulfilled before our eyes. It is now up to us to continue on with the Truth! No matter what we face we must be faithful until the end. We must maintain the Truth and oppose all evil and hypocrisies. We must worship Yahweh in the Spirit and in the Truth!

There are certain realities that we must face up to. Among these realities is that apostasy will occur within the leadership of the Body of the Messiah. Those who are joined with this ministry are of the opinion from what we have seen and experienced that the apostasy is presently taking place. It is our conviction to hold fast to the true doctrines of the Word of Yahweh and remain faithful to the end. Those false ones who left the Truth have also left us. But most importantly, the defectors from the Truth have left Almighty Yahweh and Yahshua our Savior. Hear again what Yahshua will say to them. “Not everyone who says to Me, "Master, Master,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. "Many will say to Me on that day, "Master, Master, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?' "And then I will declare to them, "I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.'" (Matt 7:21-23)

Let us further the cause of Truth and choose life. Yahweh freely gives life to those who willingly accept Truth that comes through our Savior Yahshua. As Yahshua said in John 8:31-32, "If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free."

Knowing the Truth gives us the freedom we need to choose. Choose Truth! Choose life! Choose Yahweh’s Kingdom! Choose the continuance of Yahweh’s Truth! “See, I have set before you today life and prosperity, and death and adversity; in that I command you today to love Yahweh your Elohim, to walk in His ways and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, that you may live and multiply, and that Yahweh your Elohim may bless you in the land where you are entering to possess it. "But if your heart turns away and you will not obey, but are drawn away and worship other elohim and serve them, I declare to you today that you shall surely perish. You will not prolong your days in the land where you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess it. "I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants, by loving Yahweh your Elohim, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; for this is your life and the length of your days, that you may live in the land which Yahweh swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them." (Deut 30:15-20)
