2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
3 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
In the days of Moses, after the Israelites were set free from their slavery, they became impatient with the prolonged absence of Moses as he went up the moutain to meet with the Almighty. To appease the carnal nature of the masses, and the desires of their flesh, Aaron, under pressure from the people, constructed an idol of gold for them to worship.
1And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him. 2 And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me. 3 And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron.
4 And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.
The wise King Solomon said that there is nothing new under the sun, what has been will be:
9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
Yet again we witness the once enslaved and now free masses (the Church/Ecclesia), have constructed a 'golden calf' as a means of worshipping the Most High, Almighty, Creator.
Just as Moses ascended the 'mountain' and was absent for some time in the presence of the Almighty, so also has Y'Shua the Messiah ascended the mountain into the presence of the Most High.
And in his absence
The masses of converts to christainity, have over the past two millenia, brought their most precious possessions ( their pagan beliefs and traditions) to the Priesthood who have in turn constructed an idolatrous religious system (golden calf).
This idolatrous 'religious beast' is none other than the second beast of Revelation 13
lets have a look: Revelation 13:
11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
The first clue springing forth from this chapter in Revelation is the chapter number ‘13’, which signifies ‘rebellion’ and ‘lawlessness’ in Scripture.
Examples: Nimrod was the 13th in Hams lineage. The ‘dragon’ i.e. Satan, is mentioned 13 times in Revelation.
This second beast emerges out of the earth. Earth is used in Scripture to symbolise the church/believers. The sea, on the other hand (out of which the first beast came), symbolises the unruly and unregenerate masses of the ungodly secular society.
This 2nd beast has two horns. Horns symbolise ‘power’, ‘dominion’ and ‘authority’. They are used to represent both evil and good powers.
Revelation5:6 indicates that Yahushua our Messiah has seven horns, denoting the fulness of power.
This beasts horns are likened to a ‘lamb’. In other words this beast’s power and authority seems to be mild and gentle. The use of the reference to the lamb compares to the ‘Lamb of the Father’ – Messiah Yahushua who exemplifies righteousness and humility.
It is evident that this verse is describing a ‘religious authority’ or ‘powerbase’ that only appears to be demonstrating the meek and innocent character of the Messiah. This beast represents the 'religious system' and not the people/believers who follow after it. They are the represented as the 'harlot' riding the first beast.
It is my view that the two horns represent two streams of power/authority within this religious ‘beast’ system. I believe that these two horns represent the Catholic and Protestant religious organisations. The labelling as a ‘beast’ in this verse is highly derogatory and condemning.
This beast however speaks as a dragon. ‘Dragon’ is another name for Satan who is the ‘father of lies’ and the ‘adversary’. The beasts speech betrays him as he speaks blasphemies, idolatries and evil false doctrines. To speak as Satan would also imply a spirit of arrogance, pride and self-confidence.
This beast exercises all the power of the first beast and caused the earth and them which dwell therein toworship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
As mentioned earlier, the earth symbolises the ‘church’. This verse means that this beast uses ‘carnal’, ‘secular’ power and influence, through its teachings and doctrines, which causes all the ‘church’ members/followers to worship the first beast. This beast endorses and stimulates the same carnal interest as the first beast (possibly unintentionally) and pulls the believers away from worshipping the Almighty according to the Truth and righteousness of Scripture.
One only has to witness all of the 'ungodly' and 'worldly' activities in mainstream religion today to see this in action. The church copies many secular activities in their attempt to 'worship'. The focus seems to be more on satisfying the lusts of the flesh - carnal desires.
This second beast has served as an imposter who under the disguise of ‘godly’ religion, deceives the believing, vulnerable and naïve masses - leading them astray.
The first beast on the other hand represents all worldly empires/kingdoms (secular powers) that are carnal and ungodly.
'And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads'.
This second religious ‘beast’ causes all of its followers to receive the ‘mark of the beast’. Did you get that? This phoney ‘wolf’ in ‘sheeps clothing’ has caused the uninformed masses to receive the mark of ‘unrighteousness’ - the 'mark of the beast'. The right hand and forehead means the ‘actions’ (right hand) and thoughts (forehead).
Instead of having the ‘seal’ of the Father these followers will be branded as an advocate of the beast through association, and as a result, by their very own thoughts and deeds of unrighteousness.
We must only follow the One who has the seven horns (Y'Shua) and we should want only the Father's name on our forheads.
Revelation 5:6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
Revelation 7 2And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,
3Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
4And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there weres ealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
Revelation 14:1 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads.
3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:
4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.
It is my belief that the four legs/pillars that support this 'religious calf'/ idolatrous beast, are the erroneous teachings/beliefs in the church pertaining to the following:
This page is dedicated to bringing the Scriptural meaning back into these misleading and dangerous beliefs that underpin church doctrines.
Without these four legs this 'beast' religious system will not stand.
It is my hope that the content on this page will encourage the reader to continue researching the subject matter until the revelation of Truth is recieved.
The pages of Scripture reveal the identities of two women as a comparative picture of the bride of Messiah Y'Shua and the rebellious 'harlot'. One is described as the 'undefiled', 'virgin' (the Bride in waiting), and the other is the adulterous harlot riding the Beast - mentioned in the book of Revelation. The 'church/ecclesia' in Scripture is descibed as a 'woman' because the 'woman/ecclesia' is meant to be an undefiled bride in waiting - for the return of the 'bridgroom' - Yahushua.
It should also be understood that the 'woman' is a term used in Scripture to describe a collective grouping of people but also applies on an individual level i.e. to all believers on a personal level. Certain individuals seem to apply the 'Harlot' warning only to an institution but the term/concept is also applicable on an individual level. We need to be critical and cautious with our very own faith journey and not always point fingers at 'groups' or institutions.
Many 'suitable' individuals will make up the 'Bride' group of Y'Shua, and many more people (believers) will be associated with the 'harlot' character.
The word 'church' as read in Scripture is most often misleading and leads to misunderstanding. The correct word 'Ecclesia' is a word meaning 'called out ones'.
Please read the article'Church or Ecclessia'for clarity. We have also drifted so far from the Truth of Scripture that Christianity names their Messiah 'Jesus' instead of 'Yahushua' (Y'Shua for short) which means “Yah is our deliverer” in Hebrew. “JESUS” seems to convey “hail Zeus” in Greek, and “the horse” in Hebrew (he-soos). But Christians don't seem to be bothered by this.
For a detailed analysis read this article. ................................................................................................................
What does Y'Shua teach us during this time about the judgement of the adulterous woman:
Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.
2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.
3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
What this portion of scripture reveals to me is that although we may be able to identify the adulterous 'woman' (i.e.the idolatrous church/individuals), we may not judge her due to our own sinful lives. Y'Shua is also showing us that this is not the time for passing judgement, but he did nevertheless instruct her to 'sin no more'. He did not come 2000 years ago to judge but to set free. His next, soon coming, will be as Judge.
I state this to show that although I recognise the error in the 'woman' (Church/Ecclessia) I do not stand in judgement but merely want to warn and direct individuals back to the Truth contained in the Word. I am not against any individual person at all but reject the institution of organised 'paganised', christian religion. I reject all of their doctrines and creeds which are mostly the 'traditions of men'. In Revelation 18:4 we are warned to 'come out of her'.
What are you waiting for?
It is really of no consequence to me what others want to believe but I have a heart and yearning for the Truth and would like to prompt others to search for themselves and seek the Father as the Teacher - such as He is.
I am not aking you to follow me or my teachngs - seek the Father only.
Use my material as a tool. I am not asking for your loyalty or your money, or even your support. Seek only the Truth and stop following the 'blind guides'.
I have no hidden agenda. I only seek the truth. I have no 'donate' or 'paypal' button here. I don't sell books and dvds - I want nothing but to find and share Truth. I am sowing seed with this site, that's all.
Listen to your Messiah Y'Shua. What did he say about the religious leaders:
Matthew 23 27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. 28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
This 'harlot woman', as described in the book of Revelation, will remain for a time but will eventually be destroyed after the Two Witnesses bring the True Gospel to the world.
In the meantime let those who desire to cleanse their garments find some Truth on this page.
Let us be like the Bereans who were commended for their commitment to Scriptural accuracy:
11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
Disclaimer: Although I offer teachings and videos from other teachers, I do not condone their broader beliefs as I have not studied their other material. I offer this content solely for the subject matter only and to stimulate your further study on the subject and nothing else. Most of these teachers do not support or appear to understand the error in all 'four legs', as I do. Some teachers seem to have a 'pet' subject and focus on it at the expense of learning further Truth.
My advice to all who read here is to follow no man's teaching. Use the material only as a guide and through prayer, test all against the Word of the Almighty.

Before you continue into this section I would like to caution you as follows:
There are many religious groups who teach against the 'Trinity' but hold to another erroneous doctrine called Modalism/Sebelliamism.
Modalism, also called Sabellianism, is the unorthodox belief that God is one person who has revealed himself in three forms or modes in contrast to the Trinitarian doctrine where God is one being eternally existing in three persons. According to Modalism, during the incarnation, Jesus was simply God acting in one mode or role, and the Holy Spirit at Pentecost was God acting in a different mode. Thus, God does not exist as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit at the same time. Rather, He is one person and has merely manifested himself in these three modes at various times. Modalism thus denies the basic distinctiveness and coexistence of the three persons of the Trinity.
Modalism was condemned by Tertullian (c. 213, Tertullian Against Praxeas 1, in Ante Nicene Fathers, vol. 3). Also known as Sabellianism, it was condemned as heresy by Dionysius, bishop of Rome (c. 262).https://www.theopedia.com/modalism
I reject this view of Modalism completely. I believe that our Messiah Y'Shua was a man, born of the seed of Joseph as his earthly father and Mary as his earthly mother. That is what this whole section is about i.e. to show from Scripture that our Almighty Father is 'Spirit' only and not a man.
YHWH did not come down to earth as a man and die for our sins. Rather we see the 'image' of the Father in and through the life of a 'righteous man' - Y'Shua, who was called/chosen from before time to be the 'lamb of God'. His life is to be our example, to show that we too can 'overcome' this world. We are to take up our 'cross' and follow him - and crucify our flesh (carnality).
The first Adam fell out of relationship with the Father because of his sin and brought death into existence for all that followed after him.
We are reconnected to the Father as a result of the second Adam's (Messiah Y'Shua) sinless life. He has brought about life - eternal life, to those who believe. His life/death/ressurection to a spirit life (born again) has restored that which was broken.
Y'Shua is our older brother - the 'firstborn', anointed to be King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He is the 'firstborn' of many sons. He sits at the 'right hand' (authority) of the Father. All authority has been given to him - for a season. He is the 'head' of the body ie. the 'firstborn' of the body/sons and has been given the 'firstborn' blessing - the throne.
We now have 'the comforter' (the Power of the Almighty), to assist us with our journey to our promised land.
We beleive what the Scripture states, which is that YHWH alone is One God and that there is none like Him (Isaiah 45:5).
NO ONE is like Him, not even the 'Son of God' (our Messiah Y'Shua) and certainly not some imaginary supernatural, spiritual being called Satan - as taught in Christian doctrine.
5 I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:
6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else.
There is none like You, O LORD; You are great, and great is Your name in might.
"There is no one holy like the LORD, Indeed, there is no one besides You, Nor is there any rock like our God.
1 Samuel 2:2
"O LORD, there is none like You, nor is there any God besides You, according to all that we have heard with our ears.
1 Chronicles 17:20
"There is none like the God of Jeshurun, Who rides the heavens to your help, And through the skies in His majesty.
Then he said, "Tomorrow." So he said, "May it be according to your word, that you may know that there is no one like the LORD our God.
"For this time I will send all My plagues on you and your servants and your people, so that you may know that there is no one like Me in all the earth.
'O Lord GOD, You have begun to show Your servant Your greatness and Your strong hand; for what god is there in heaven or on earth who can do such works and mighty acts as Yours?
He said, "O LORD, the God of Israel, there is no God like You in heaven above or on earth beneath, keeping covenant and showing lovingkindness to Your servants who walk before You with all their heart,
1 Kings 8:23
"For this reason You are great, O Lord GOD; for there is none like You, and there is no God besides You, according to all that we have heard with our ears.
2 Samuel 7:22
There is no one like You among the gods, O Lord, Nor are there any works like Yours.
Who would not fear You, O King of the nations? Indeed it is Your due! For among all the wise men of the nations And in all their kingdoms, There is none like You.
"Remember the former things long past, For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is no one like Me,
"Indeed their rock is not like our Rock, Even our enemies themselves judge this.
My prayer is that this content is a blessing to you
The Trinity Dellusion(website)
An excellent site containg a vast collection of teaching material on the subject of the Trinity. Take note however that we promote this site for the view of the Trinity only. We make no comment on any other beliefs promoted by this site.
This is the website of Sir Anthony Buzzard. He has made many videos available on the subject of the Trinity and authored many books. The Doctrine of the Trinity is a worthwhile read.
(again let me say that I do not support any further teachings of Anthony )
Within this attachment (link below) are multiple verses from Scripture that declare that YHWH is One, and not some ‘trinity’ or multiplication of beings as taught in mainstream christianinty:
Why do people continue to give their idea of ‘Jesus’ and ‘satan’ powers that they do not possess?
This important work is a detailed biblical investigation of the relationship of Jesus to the one God of Israel. The authors challenge the notion that biblical monotheism is legitimately represented by a Trinitarian view of God and demonstrate that within the bounds of the canon of Scripture Jesus is confessed as Messiah, Son of God, but not God Himself. Later Christological developments beginning in the second century, and under the influence of pagan Gnosticism, misrepresented the biblical doctrine of God and Christ by altering the terms of the biblical presentation of the Father and the Son. This fateful development laid the foundation of a revised, unscriptural creed which needs to be challenged. This book provides a definitive presentation of a Christology rooted in the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament. The authors present a sharply-argued appeal for an understanding of God and Jesus in the context of Christianity's original, apostolic, unitary monotheism.
In Divine Truth or Human Tradition?(by Patrick Navas) the author critically examines the viewpoints and Scripture expositions of prominent evangelical scholars and apologists—including Dr. James R. White (author of The Forgotten Trinity), Dr. John MacArthur (President of The Master‟s Seminary), Wayne Grudem (author of the widely-read Systematic Theology), Robert Morey (author of The Trinity, Evidence and Issues), Robert L. Reymond (author of A New Systematic Theology of the Christian Faith), and others… According to what has long been considered mainstream Christian “orthodoxy,” the doctrine of the Trinity (the idea that the one God of the Bible is a singular being made up of three coequal and coeternal „persons‟) is not only central to the Christian faith, but even necessary for one to accept in order to be counted as a true Christian and be saved. Such a demand on a Christian‟s faith has come across as strange and perplexing to many, especially so in light of the fact pointed out by one respected Trinitarian: “[The Trinity] is not clearly or explicitly taught anywhere in Scripture, yet it is widely regarded as a central doctrine, indispensable to the Christian faith. In this regard, it goes contrary to what is virtually an axiom [that is, a given, a self-evident truth] of biblical doctrine, namely, that there is a direct correlation between the scriptural clarity of a doctrine and its cruciality to the faith and life of the church.” (Millard J. Erickson, God in Three Persons, p. 11. Emphasis added) Understandably, this fact has raised questions in the minds of Christians and truth-seekers alike ever since the doctrine was first articulated in the late 4th century. Many Christians have wondered: How can a doctrine that is not clearly or explicitly taught in the Bible be necessary to accept in order to be a true practitioner of the Christian faith?
The following video will provide an unbiased history of the Trinity Doctrine and will describe how this pagan interpretation developed into a Doctrine in the fourth century. The Trinity viewpoint was completely foreign to the first century believers/followers of the Messiah.
The following video will expose the deceipt and error contained in the Trinity Doctrine. (Please note that I do not endorse any further beliefs/teachings of the Christadelphians). ********************************************************************** *The Virgin Birth* **************************************************************
The poular 'church' teaching of the 'virgin birth' of our Messiah Y'shua is a total misunderstanding of what Scripture is actually stating. Belief in this erroneous 'virgin birth' teaching is also not required for one's salvation. Why all the fuss then on the birth. Does it have more to do with building on pagan myths of similar births and the formation of a fanatstic Christmas nativity story.
I am currently compiling a document on this subject.
I will include it as soon as it is finished. It is a very large and sensitive subject to cover.
*The Deity of Jesus* **************************************************************
The links below are provided for there content pertaining to the One God (monotheism)perspective. I do not endorse any of their broader beliefs of which I am not familiar.
The Human Jesus
This theological documentary, produced by Restoration Fellowship answers, very frankly, the difficult theological question: "Is Jesus of Nazareth Human or Divine?"
Jesus is Not God - Dr. Joe Martin
This is a must watch three part series
Jesus is NOT God, but is the Christ, the Son of God
A five part series.
Warning: Their birth understanding/teaching in part 2 is incorrect.
The Arian Controversy
A short background discussion on the Arian/Athanasius doctrinal battle in the 4th century.
christianmonotheism.com exists in order to promote the fearless pursuit of truth concerning God and Jesus from a biblical and historical perspective. Christian monotheists (also called biblical unitarians) believe that Jesus must be taken seriously when he says that his Father is the only true God (John 17.3).
*Satan* ************************************************************** Who or what is satan? Is it a supernatural, powerful fallen angel, in competion with the 'King of the Universe' for our souls - as most often described by church Pastors and teachers. Or is it as the Scriptures state - 'ha satan' in the Hebrew meaning 'the adversary'. The Truth on this one will really set you free.
I thought for many years that there was this invisible beast (Satan) and his army of demons stalking me continuously. Forever striving to make me fall into sin and destroy me.
What absolute rubbish.
Yes, satan is very real but what it is will shock you. Here is a clue: 9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? Jeremiah 17:9(KJV)
The term 'ha satan' means 'the adversary' and is also refered to in Scripture with other names i.e. the devil,the serpent, the dragon etc.
This refers to the disobedient, rebelious carnal spirit of fallen mankind.
I acknowledge however that it may take the content of Jim's four books to provide sufficient evidence from Scripture to reveal this Truth. Most believers (myself included) have been decieved into believing that Satan is a supernatural, powerful 'godlike' being - at war with our Almighty Father. But the Father Himself declares in His Word that He alone is God and that there is none like Him.
Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Isaiah 46:9
I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me:
The Christian 'religious' teachings ('traditions of man') has created another 'god' through the erroneous teachings on Satan. This teaching/belief is idolatry.
When we come to the realisation that it is our very own spirit of rebellion and unrighteousness that is the 'ha satan' (the adversary to righteousness) then, and only then, can we begin to resist the devil and walk in Truth and light.
We can stop blaming all the evil in the world on some external force and start evaluating our very own thoughts and deeds against the Word of YHWH.
Y'Shua said to Peter in Matthew 16:23 'get thee behind me, Satan'. This was because the thoughts of Peter were carnal and not in alignment with the plan of the Father - which Y'Shua fully understood.
The Truth will set you free from the fear of this 'supposed' evil exterior entity.
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
After all of my research into this subject of satan I can only highly recommend the books and teachings of Jim Brayshaw. He has studied the subject for many years and read probably all there is to read on the subject. He has, in my opinion, provided a thoroughly comprehensive set of convincing books covering all parameters of the subject, answering any questions that you may have.
Thank you Jim Brayshaw.
