Returning to your vomit…

The ‘two house’ people tend to twist and pervert scripture in order to make their doctrine fit.

One of the newer passages that they have perverted is this beautiful passage about repentance and humility.  It is traditionally called the “Prodigal Son” parable. 

“A man had two sons; 12and his younger son said to him, ‘My father, give me the portion which is coming to me from your house.’ And he divided to them his possessions. 13And after a few days, his younger son gathered everything that was his share, and went to a far country, and there he wasted his wealth in extravagant living. 14And when all he had was gone, there was a severe famine in that country, and he began to be in need. 15So he went and got acquainted with one of the citizens of that country, and he sent him to the field to feed the swine. 16And he craved to fill his stomach with the husks that the swine were eating, and yet no man would give him. 17And when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many hired workers are now in my father’s house who have plenty of bread, and I am here perishing with hunger? 18I will rise and go to my father and say to him, ‘My father, I have sinned before Heaven and before you; 19and I am no longer [he was still a son!] worthy to be called your son; just make me like one of your hired workers.” 20And he rose up and came to his father. And while he was yet at a distance, his father saw him and had compassion on him, and he ran and fell on his neck and kissed him. 21And his son said to him, ‘My father, I have sinned before Heaven and before you, and I am not worthy to be called your son.’ [he was still a son!]  22But his father said to his servants, ‘Bring the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet; 23and bring and kill the fattened ox, and let us eat and be merry; 24for this my son was dead and has come to life; he was lost, and is found.’ And they began to be merry. 25But his elder son was in the field; and as he came near the house, he heard the voice of the singing of many. 26And he called one of the boys, and asked him what it was all about. 27He said to him, ‘Your brother has come; and your father has killed the fattened ox because he received him safe and well.’ 28And he became angry and would not go in; so his father came out and besought him. 29But he said to his father, ‘Behold, how many years I have served you, and I never disobeyed your mitzvah; and yet you never gave me even a kid that I might make merry with my friends. 30But for this son of yours, after he had wasted your wealth with harlots and come back, you have killed the fattened ox.’ 31His father said to him, ‘My son, you are always with me, and everything which is mine is yours. 32It was right for us to make merry and rejoice; for this your brother was dead and has come to life; and was lost, and is found.’”

The new ‘twist’ on this passage is that the ‘prodigal’ son is equivalent to ‘northern Israel,’ the ‘lost tribes of Israel,’ which the two-house proponents think are today’s ‘christians’ who are descended from European stock.  Apart from the fact that it is a ridiculous notion to assert that anyone can prove that Danes, Brits, Dutch, etc., are descended from the ‘ten lost tribes’, it is further ridiculous to assume that this parable is about any ‘group’ of people.  They claim that the ‘faithful’ son is Yehudah [Judah], or, our Jewish people.  This alone BREAKS their narrative right away, because Yeshua spent a great deal of His time showing Israel, the Jewish people, how very DISOBEDIENT they were!  They did NOT remain faithful in His house, as did the older son in our story.  They had, before Yeshua visited them, already turned salvation into a merit-based system, much like two housers today, who need the merit of being genetically of the ten tribes in order to justify their salvation. 

The notion that the ‘ten lost tribes’ are seen as the ‘younger son’ is ‘off’ as well.  Since three of the tribes in the northern kingdom were ‘older’ than Yehudah: Re’uven, Shimon, and Levi.  But, worse, in the parable, the younger son TAKES his ‘birthright,’ or his ‘inheritance’ with him, and spends it.  This is NOT how the ten tribes left Israel… they were DRIVEN OUT, by GOD HIMSELF!  They did NOT leave the Home of their father with HIS FAVOR, with Him willingly giving them the GOODNESS of HIS HOUSE…. They DISOBEYED, and were PUNISHED.  In our parable, the younger son leaves with his father’s blessing!  In history, the ten northern tribes left in BONDAGE, as Assyrian SLAVES.  And they were NOT driven into Europe, but further east into Asia Minor and beyond.  The simple fact is, NO ONE KNOWS where they went AFTER they were driven into the places EAST where the scriptures say they were driven.  Further, the Danes, Brits, Dutch, Germans, Gauls, Celts, etc, ALREADY EXISTED as people groups LONG before the northern tribes were driven out of Israel, EASTWARD in 900 BC. 

In our mashal, the younger son ‘comes to himself’.   In the B’sorah, the FATHER CALLS US!  [Yokh 6:44]  At the beginning of the mashal, he is ALREADY A SON!  THAT is NOT a state of being ‘unsaved’ at all.  This mashal is about the realization of the need of repentance.. But, it is MORE about the OLDER SON, who RESENTS the younger son’s blessing when he returns….

The older son in NO WAY can represent Judah.  Yehudah WAS DISOBEDIENT when Yeshua arrived in Yisra’el.  Yehudah, in fact, according to Yirme-Yahu, was WORSE OFF spiritually than had been the northern tribes, since they defiled the ACTUAL TEMPLE of Elohim, and not a mock temple such as the two the northern tribes had built in Efrayim and Dan.  To say that the older son represents the Jewish people, who resent the “xtian ephraimites” because god is blessing them, is writing into this text that which is simply NOT THERE.  In fact, it defies Yeshua’s narrative, and His whole point… HUMILITY.  Our Jewish people are NOT in our Father’s house!  They rejected the Son of G-d, and are still being wooed to repentance themselves!  They are in NO WAY in possession of the inheritance nor the blessing.

This mashal is NOT about a group of people that Elohim scourged with punishment, sent them away destitute as slaves, whose POSSIBLE descendants then may or may not become believers in the Messiah.  This notion completely disregards that the Samaritans were ACTUAL descendants of the Northern tribes, and Yeshua told His Talmidim NOT to go to them when He sent His Twelve out to the ‘LOST SHEEP of Yisra’el.’  The two-housers pervert that very simple historical FACT, that the twelve went out TO JEWS whom Yeshua called the LOST SHEEP OF ISRAEL… They were LOST because they had no spiritual shepherd, just as Yirme-Yahu said of them some 600 years before Yeshua came.  Two-housers further ignore Sha’ul, a Benjamite, who called himself BOTH an ISRAELI AND a Jew.  How can that be?  He’s NOT from the northern tribes, and NOT from Yehudah, but calls himself BOTH an Israeli and a Jew.

Two-housers take prophecies that they do NOT understand, most of which have already been fulfilled, and make NEW doctrine out of them.  They twist the scriptures, and base their salvation in part on their GENETICS.  “I’m saved, because I’m descended from Ephraim.”  If salvation is in ANY MEASURE weighted against genetics, IT IS NOT SALVATION. 

Two Housers need to learn that the WHOLE OLIVE TREE WAS CUT DOWN, TO THE ROOT [The root is Messiah]; then, JEWISH BRANCHES grew out of it FIRST, and GENTILE branches were grafted in to the JEWISH TREE, as Yeshua is a JEW.

Historically, there were CONVERTS to Judaism from the areas where the northern tribes had been driven 900 years before Shavu’ot [Acts 2], “Parthians, Scythians…”   these are the areas where the ten lost tribes were driven nearly 1,000 years before Acts 2 took place.  And converts AND Jews from there were present.  But, NOT ONE of them were called an “Ephraimite” in Acts…. They were called ‘resident strangers’ JUST LIKE ANY OTHER GENTILE convert who was there to witness Shavu’ot.

The egregious thinking of these people shows that they are likely not saved at all, as they need something OTHER than the blood of Yeshua to tell them they are part of a ‘house.’  A TRUE JEW is one who is circumcised in heart.  There is ONLY ONE House, the Kingdom of Messiah.

27For those who have been immersed in the name of Mashi’akh have been clothed with Mashi’akh. 28There is neither Yehudi nor Arami, [Jew nor Aramean] there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all ONE in Yeshua HaMashi’akh. 29So if you belong to Mashi’akh, then you are descendants of Avraham, and his heirs according to the promise.”  Avraham’s descendants are so by FAITH ALONE.

Aramean happens to, in this context, represent the territory where the ten lost tribes were driven.  They are NOT called “Ephraimites” here, as their dna had so mixed with their host nations, they do not exist as a people any more, and did not in Sha’ul’s day either.

Timothy, who LIVED in the area of the ten lost tribes, was instructed:

“Charge certain ones not to teach diverse doctrines, 4and not to give heed to fables and stories of endless genealogies, which cause dispute, rather than build up HaEmunah of Elohim.”

Two-house doctrine is FABLE.  It is a twisting of scripture that diverts attention off of the blood of Messiah and puts in on flesh!  In fact, the two-housers have, if they ever knew Messiah, SQUANDERED the inheritance for the flesh of swine, turning to fables, turning away from TRUST in Messiah ALONE as our IDENTITY.

Your inheritance: Lies, or TRUTH?

Allow me to solicit your thoughts on certain matters, if I may. I am asking those of you who know you love the Messiah to consider that His Father was Elohim, the Almighty G-d. That Almighty G-d created the Sabbath for all mankind, to which Yeshua attested:

“The Sabbath was made for MANKIND, and not mankind for the Sabbath”.
Mark 2:27

Yeshua is referring to Genesis 2, here, where G-d blessed the SEVENTH DAY. He did not bless the first day. He created the Sabbath as His last act of creating. We pray a prayer, “though made last…” in our congregation. The Sabbath was made…for all of us.

My question, then, is an honest question offered in love: Who changed the Sabbath Day?

Did G-d? Did the Messiah change it, after declaring that it was made for all mankind? Do you understand that the word Sabbath means “Seventh Day”? It is a day of rest, but it is the SEVENTH DAY, and it was instated at the creation, NOT for the Jews only! But for all mankind.

So, WHO changed it? I beg you to consider this. And I ask you to read further and allow me to show you who changed it. Not only so, but I would like you also to consider, with all my heart, who changed the other Holy Days of G-d, which the Messiah Yeshua also observed? Passover, Matzot, Reysheet Omer, Shavuot, all of which detail the first coming of Messiah and his death, burial and resurrection, as shadows. Also Yom Teruah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot, which teach us very clearly of the details of His return. [Colossians 2:17]

Who changed these feasts to Easter, Halloween, and Christmas? Who changed the Sabbath to “Sun-day”.

I will tell you: the Spirit of the Lying Messiah. You may call it “Antichrist”.

This is the spirit that will one day possess an individual who will rule the world, very soon. But, this ‘spirit’ has been in the world for millennia. It does not go after the lost, but after believers, to deceive them. It was in the world in the first century, and already lying to ‘christians’ then, those who confessed that they believed in Yeshua as the Messiah. Yokhanan [John] had to remind them that this spirit was already around, as a warning of great danger:

“My little children, it is the last days; and as you have heard that the Lying Messiah will come, even NOW there are many lying messiahs, and from this we know that it is the last days”.
I John 2:18

“The Ruakh of Elohim [Spirit of G-d] is known by this: every spirit that declares that Yeshua the Messiah is come in the flesh is from Elohim. And every spirit which does not declare that Yeshua the Messiah is come in the flesh is not from Elohim. This is the spirit of the Lying Messiah, which you have heard that it should come into the world, and even now is already in the world.”
I John 4:2-3

This is a clear warning that there is a demonic presence in the world that means to deceive the people of Messiah. Shaul [Paul] wrote of it too:

“Now the Ruakh clearly says that in the last days some shall DEPART from the faith, giving ear to seducing spirits, and doctrines of demons.”
1 Tim 4:1

Both Yokhanan and Shaul declare that the believers had heard of and that the Ruakh had spoken of this “lying Messiah”. Many think that the “Holy Spirit” whispered in their ears and told them this, but do not realize that the Ruakh wrote the Tanak [the Torah, Prophets, and Poets], and that is how they had ‘heard’ of the lying Messiah:

“He shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that bites the horse’s heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.”

“He shall speak great words against the Most High, and shall wear out the set apart ones, and HE SHALL THINK TO CHANGE THE APPOINTED TIMES [FEASTS] AND THE TORAH.”

“Appointed Times” are specific: Leviticus 23:2, “These are the Appointed Times of יהוה.” The first one is the Sabbath, and the other seven are listed above in the same order they are listed in Leviticus.

So, it is the spirit of the Lying Messiah, that has been in the world for atleast 2000 years, [really, it was in the garden of Eden too, however, but Yokhanan’s letter was written before 90AD, so it has been atleast that long], that would CHANGE THE FEASTS and the TORAH.

But, when did this happen? When did the Christian world CHANGE? Most of you may think that it was very, very early in the cycle of ‘christian’ observance. It was not. True, there were second century ‘confessors’, a handful, who observed the ‘Sunday Sabbath’ as the “Lords Day”, but were they right to do so? Where is it written that Almighty G-d gave authority to men to CHANGE HIS FEASTS and to IGNORE SCRIPTURE? It is not, but it is written that the “Antichrist”, the “Anti-Messiah”, the Lying Messiah, the “Son of Perdition”, would do so. And, it is written that the ‘spirit’ that would possess him was already in the world in the first century. So, WHEN, I ask you lovingly, did your forefathers STOP observing the Sabbath?

Check the book of Acts, and you will see that ALL believers, Jewish and Gentile, worshipped Elohim on the Sabbath, and that it was a LIE that was spread that they changed the Torah for Jews and for Gentiles.

It happened ‘officially’ starting in 312AD.

“On the venerable Day of the Sun let the magistrates and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed. In the country, however, persons engaged in agriculture may freely and lawfully continue their pursuits; because it often happens that another day is not so suitable for grain-sowing or vine-planting; lest by neglecting the proper moment for such operations the bounty of heaven should be lost.”

This is Constantine. It is after he called the Pagan sign Sol Invictus [which also is his ‘sun-day’ ]  the “Sign of the Cross”, and went to war pretending to war in the name of ‘christ’. It was at the Battle of the Milvian bridge in 308 where he ‘claimed’ to have seen his ‘sign’, and shortly thereafter declared HIS empire to be a ‘christian’ Empire. And four years later, he made it LAW that “The Venerable Day of the Sun” [sol invicuts] would be the day of rest.

So, indeed, the first thing he did was change the Appointed Times. But, it did not end there. He further declared the Passover of the Jews to be “disgusting”. Even though MOST of his ‘empire’ who believed in the Messiah actually kept the Passover with the Jews! He was a rabid anti-Semite, and it did not take long for it to manifest, and to officially change the other “Appointed Times”.

“It was, in the first place, declared improper to follow the custom of the Jews in the celebration of this holy festival [Pesakh/Passover], because, their hands having been stained with crime, the minds of these wretched men are necessarily blinded. … Let us, then, have nothing in common with the Jews, who are our adversaries. … Let us … studiously avoiding all contact with that evil way. … For how can they entertain right views on any point who, after having compassed the death of the Lord, being out of their minds, are guided not by sound reason, but by an unrestrained passion, wherever their innate madness carries them. … lest your pure minds should appear to share in the customs of a people so utterly depraved. … Therefore, this irregularity must be corrected, in order that we may no more have any thing in common with those parricides and the murderers of our Lord. … no single point in common with the perjury of the Jews.” [Ecclesiastical History by Theodoret, Book 1, Chapter 9, concerning the matters transacted at the Council, addressed to those overseers who were not present]

Now, if you’re an anti-Semite, this rings true for you. But, if you recognize that he is saying that things must CHANGE, you see that many in the empire were STILL keeping the Passover, TOGETHER WITH JEWS. Check the History, the believers in Messiah got along with the wider Jewish community for a long, long time, even though some gentiles were already trying to break away from the Jewish community. [hence, the corrective ‘epistles’ of Sha’ul/Paul] Constantine, however, and his followers, made it LAW that things should CHANGE!

If you read history further, you find that another law had to be written a mere 80 some odd years later, to FORCE people to quit observing the Sabbath and the Passover, and the other feasts, with Jews, on PAIN OF DEATH. Can you really justify a DEATH PENALTY sentence for KEEPING THE SABBATH of the GOD? If you can, you are of the spirit of the Lying Messiah.

The overseers who were not present were the Jewish Overseers of the congregations around the empire, and the Gentile overseers who would NOT go to the council of Nicea, because Constantine would not permit the Jewish Overseers to go! Out of some 2500 overseers around the empire, only around 250 actually went. So, a TEN PERCENT showing of overseers decided the fate of the ‘christian empire’; and that 10 percent began KILLING anyone who disagreed with them on these two matters, and on one more: Who Messiah is.

The Council of Nicea DENIED that Yeshua is come in the FLESH!

They delared this: “He is said to be “one in being with The Father”. Eusebius of Caesarea attributed the term homoousios, or “consubstantial, i.e., “of the same substance” (of the Father), to Constantine, who, on this particular point, may have chosen to exercise his authority. The significance of this clause, however, is extremely ambiguous, and it would be hotly contested for centuries, before the final ‘Trinitarian formula’ was accepted. It, too, was forced on the wider ‘christian empire’ by the DEATH PENALTY.

“Homoousios” is the issue. “One SUBSTANCE”.
This DENIES that Yeshua is [and remains] FLESH AND BONE!

“Behold, my hands and feet, that it is I myself: HANDLE ME, and SEE, for a SPIRIT DOES NOT HAVE FLESH and BONES, as you see me have.” Luke 24:39 [He said this AFTER having risen from the dead]

For Constantine to declare that “jesus” is the same SUBSTANCE with the father is to make him NOT IN THE FLESH, since the scriptures say that the Father, Elohim, is SPIRIT! Yeshua said so HIMSELF!

“Elohim is RUAKH [Spirit], and they that worship HIM must do so in spirit, and in TRUTH”.
John 4:24

THIS IS THE “SPIRIT OF THE LYING MESSIAH”, that Yokhanan warned us about!

“The Ruakh of Elohim [Spirit of G-d] is known by this: every spirit that declares that Yeshua the Messiah is come in the flesh is from Elohim. And every spirit which does not declare that Yeshua the Messiah is come in the flesh is not from Elohim. THIS IS THE SPRIIT OF THE LYING MESSIAH, which you have heard that it should come into the world, and even now is already in the world.”
I John 4:2-3

Please pray, read the scriptures, and see if this is not true! OUR FATHERS INHERITED LIES!
And the liar who foisted these deceits on the ‘christian empire’ was NOT EVEN A BELIEVER! He waited until his DEATH BED to consider being ‘immersed’, and when he did, he was ‘baptized’ by a man who did NOT accept his ‘homoousios’ clause! Eusebius!

THIS is the man who began to ‘change the seasons and the torah’ officially, with the backing of the state. And those who came after him eventually had to use MURDER in order to get the majority of the people to comply. One day soon, this SAME SPIRIT will govern the whole world. And, I tell you now, our country is governed by a man and his followers who follow this SAME SPIRIT.

They are now changing the Torah: making it ‘legal’ for men to marry men, women to marry women, and for babies to be murdered in the womb and out. This was done in the ‘churches’ first, and now it is becoming the law of the land. So, we cannot utterly blame the lawmakers. ALL of this stems from that acquiescent attitude of those 250 “bishops” nearly 1700 years ago, who had no courage to stand for the TRUTH. They caved, because the world leader told them they needed to.

Is this really who you want to follow? Or would you follow Messiah, and imitate Him, who Himself kept the Appointed times of His Father?

Yeshua
