YAHUAH Is One
And YAHUSHA answered him,
The first of all the commandments is,
Hear, O Yashar’el;
YAHUAH is one:
For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, EL GIBBOR (The Mighty El), The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
unto us a Son is given
and his name shall be called
EL GIBBOR (The Mighty El),
The Everlasting Father,
The Prince of Peace
And that every tongue should confess that
to the glory of YAH the Father
Wherefore I give you to understand,
that no man speaking by the
calls YAHUSHA accursed:
and that no man can say that
but by the RUACH HA’QODESH.
The law is NOT nailed to the Cross
Mat 22:11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
righteousness = wedding garment
Faith Without Works Is Dead
What does it profit, my brethren, though a man say he has belief, and have not works? can belief save him? If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what does it profit? Even so belief, if it has not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, You have belief, and I have works: show me your belief without your works, and I will show you my belief by my works. You believe that there is one YAH; you do well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But will you know, O vain man, that belief without works is dead? Was not Avraham our father justified by works, when he had offered את eth-Yitschaq his son upon the altar? See how belief wrought with his works, and by works was belief made perfect? And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, Avraham believed YAHUAH, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness and he was called the Friend of ELOHIYM. Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by belief only. Likewise also was not Rachav the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? For as the body without the ruach (spirit) is dead, so belief without works is dead also.
What are you nailing to the cross when you do not keep the law?
When you have no works?
You are nailing your wedding garment, your righteousness, to the Cross!
Remember the day
Remember את eth-the day of the Shabbath, to keep it holy.
Guard את eth-the day of the Shabbath; to sanctify it as YAHUAH ELOHAYKA has commanded you.
And hallow את eth-my Shabbathoth; and they shall be a sign between me and you, that ye may know that I am YAHUAH ELOHAYKEM.
For he spoke in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And YAHUAH did rest the seventh day from all his works.
Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our YAH in their foreheads.
Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to YAHUAH, to serve him, and to love את eth-the name of YAHUAH, to be his servants, everyone that guards the Shabbath from polluting it, and takes hold of my covenant;
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the Besorah (Gospel; good news.) to every creature.
He that believes and is immersed shall be saved; but he that believes not shall be damned.
And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
Infant baptism is valid.
Sprinkling and pouring are valid ways to baptize.
Baptism is not for the forgiveness of sins.
Baptism does not wash away sins.
Baptism is not necessary for salvation.
Spiritual rebirth does not occur at baptism.
Mar 16:16 He that believes and is immersed shall be saved;
Joh 3:23 And Yahuchanon also was immersing in Ayin near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and were immersed.
Act 2:38 Then Kepha said unto them, Repent, and be immersed everyone of you in the name of YAHUAH-YAHUSHA for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the RUACH HA’QODESH.
Act 22:16 And now why do you tarry? arise, and be immersed, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of YAHUAH.
Mar 16:16 He that believes and is immersed shall be saved;
Joh 3:5 YAHUSHA answered, Amein, I say unto you, Except a man be born of water and of the RUACH, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of YAHUAH.
What have we learned about baptism?
- Baptism must be based on one’s own faith (Mark 16:16; Acts 8:36, 37).
- Baptism is a burial, an immersion (John 3:23; Romans 6:4; Colossians 2:12).
- Baptism is for the forgiveness of sins (Acts 2:38).
- Baptism washes away sins by the power of the blood of Christ (Acts 22:16).
- There is one baptism (Ephesians 4:5).
- Spiritual rebirth occurs at baptism (John 3:5).
- Baptism is essential for salvation (Mark 16:16; 1 Peter 3:21).
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19). “He who believes and is baptized will be saved” (Mark 16:16). “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins” (Acts 2:38). “And now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord” (Acts 22:16). Amen.
Who can do immersion?
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, immersing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the RUACH HA’QODESH:
Is this command given to the 11 only, or to all of us? Are we to ‘teach all nations’? If so, it is a command to all of us to immerse!
Nowhere in scripture it can be found that immersion must be done by office bearers only. We can be immersed by anyone that believes, even ourselves. There is however four conditions to be met to be immersed.
1. You have to have heard the Gospel.
2. You have to have repented.
3. You have to believe the gospel.
4. You have to have a good conscience toward Yahuah.
Nowhere is it stated that you must do a 4 week course and write an exam or do a confession of faith before the congregation, before you may be immersed. Or that it must be done by an elder that can vouch for you. It could be done by an elder (ordained person), if you so choose.

The Sacred Names
People ask why I use the holy names and not the names I grew up with, in the Afrikaans Bible, that we all understand. I don’t use it because I want to look important because of it, but because these Hebrew names tell us so much more. First, it is a proper name, but it also has a definite meaning. It is this first element ( proper name ) that is lost in the ordinary translations because it only gives the meaning as His name.
Isa_12:4 And in that day shall ye say, Praise YAHUAH, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted.
Joh_17:26 And I have declared unto them your name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.
Heb_2:12 Saying, I will declare your name unto my brethren, in the midst of the called out assembly will I sing praise unto you.
Psa_22:22 I will declare your name unto my brethren: in the midst of the assembly will I praise you.
Psa_75:1 To the chief Musician, Altaschith, A Mizmor or Song of Acaph. – UNTO you, O ELOHIYM, do we give thanks, unto you do we give thanks: for that your name is near your wondrous works declare.
Psa_102:21 To declare the name of YAHUAH in Tsiyon, and his praise in Yerushalayim;
The Calendar of Heavens
And ELOHIYM said,
Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to divide the day from the night;
and let them be for signs,
and for appointed feasts,
and for days, and years:
This is a huge subject and it took me plus-minus two years to come to grips with this. Two years of on and off, studying, struggling with my preconceived ideas and upbringing, and processing the lies that were embedded in my whole being.
If you are interested you can read more below where I will attempt to explain.
I praise YAHUAH for breaking this open for me.
All the GLORY to YAHUAH my EL ELOHIYM
