A living sacrifice?

If we do not follow Yahwah’s instructions, then worship and prayer are vain.




Psalm 40:6-8

Sacrifice and offering you have not desired, but you have given me an open ear. Burnt offering and sin offering you have not required. Then I said, “Behold, I have come; in the scroll of the book it is written of me:  I desire to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart.”


Proverb 28:9

If one turns away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer is an abomination.


Jeremiah 7:21-23

Thus says Yahwah of hosts, the God of Israel: “Add your burnt offerings to your sacrifices, and eat the flesh. For in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, I did not speak to your fathers or command them concerning burnt offerings and sacrifices. But this command I gave them: ‘Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be my people. And walk in all the way that I command you, that it may be well with you.’”


Romans 12:1

I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies bas a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.

Native Pathfinder chant: Yahwah (YHWH)


heyah heyah heyah heyah yihye heyah Yah Yahwah. Baruch haba b’shem Yahwah. 

He was. He was. He was. He was. He will be. He is Yah Yahwah. Blessed be the name of Yahwah.

Ngài là Đấng Tự Hữu Hằng Hữu. Ngài là Yah Yah-wah. Chúc tụng danh Yah-wah.

The Native American Indians descended from the ancient Hebrews and called God “Yo He Wah” (the three Hebrew letters) and Yah-Wah (not Yahweh, Jave, Java, nor Jehovah).

“From these different writers, it is plain that where the Indians have not been corrupted by foreigners, their customs and religious worship are nearly alike; and also that every different tribe or nation of Indians uses such-like divine proper name, and awful [fearful] sounds, as Yah-Wah and Hetovah, being trans-positions of the divine essential name [Yo He Wah], as our northern Indians often repeat in their religious dances. As the sound of Yah-Wah jarred in Laudon’s ear, he called it ‘Java’, in resemblance to the Syriac and Greek method of expressing the tetra-grammaton, from which Galatinus imposed it upon us, calling it Jehowah, instead of Yo He Wah” (p. 208).

Day 1, Month 1 to the Lord Yahwah

Exodus 12:1-2

Now Yahwah said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, “This month shall be the beginning of months for you; it is to be the first month of the year to you.”

Exodus 13:4

“On this day in the month of Abib, you are about to go forth.”

Day 14, Month 1, Passover to the Lord Yahwah


Exodus 12:23-27

For Yahwah will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when He sees the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts, Yahwah will pass over the door and will not allow the destroyer to come in to your houses to smite you. And you shall observe this event as an ordinance for you and your children forever. When you enter the land which Yahwah will give you, as He has promised, you shall observe this rite.  And when your children say to you, “What does this rite mean to you?” you shall say, “It is a Passover sacrifice to Yahwah who passed over the houses of the sons of Israel in Egypt when He smote the Egyptians, but spared our homes.” And the people bowed low and worshiped.


Thursday, 17 April 2014 (not Easter Sunday)

Day 17, Month 1, Resurrection of our Lord


Matthew 12:38-40

For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the sea monster, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.


Remembering freedom from physical slavery and spiritual sin


Romans 6:12-19

Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts, and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law but under grace.

What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? May it never be! Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or of obedience resulting in righteousness? But thanks be to God that though you were slaves of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching to which you were committed, and having been freed from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. I am speaking in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness, resulting in further lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness, resulting in sanctification.



Polycarp’s Testimony

Polycarp, a student of the apostle John, obedient to the entire Scriptures, from the churches in Asia Minor, had this testimony:

But Polycarp also was not only instructed by apostles, and conversed with many who had seen Christ, but was also, by apostles in Asia, appointed bishop of the Church in Smyrna, whom I also saw in my early youth, for he tarried [on earth] a very long time, and, when a very old man, gloriously and most nobly suffering martyrdom, departed this life, having always taught the things which he had learned from the apostles, and which the Church has handed down, and which alone are true. To these things all the Asiatic Churches testify, as do also those men who have succeeded Polycarp down to the present time,— a man who was of much greater weight, and a more steadfast witness of truth, than Valentinus, and Marcion, and the rest of the heretics. He it was who, coming to Rome in the time of Anicetus caused many to turn away from the aforesaid heretics to the Church of God, proclaiming that he had received this one and sole truth from the apostles—that, namely, which is handed down by the Church. There are also those who heard from him that John, the disciple of the Lord, going to bathe at Ephesus, and perceiving Cerinthus within, rushed out of the bath-house without bathing, exclaiming, “Let us fly, lest even the bath-house fall down, because Cerinthus, the enemy of the truth, is within.” And Polycarp himself replied to Marcion, who met him on one occasion, and said, “Do you know me?” “I do know you, the first-born of Satan.” Such was the horror which the apostles and their disciples had against holding even verbal communication with any corrupters of the truth; as Paul also says, “A man that is an heretic, after the first and second admonition, reject; knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sins, being condemned of himself” Titus 3:10. There is also a very powerful Epistle of Polycarp written to the Philippians, from which those who choose to do so, and are anxious about their salvation, can learn the character of his faith, and the preaching of the truth. Then, again, the Church in Ephesus, founded by Paul, and having John remaining among them permanently until the times of Trajan, is a true witness of the tradition of the apostles.


Irenaeus, in Against Heresies, book 3, chapter 3, verse 4.


Passover 2014 vs. Easter 2014

passover vs. easter


How many days was He in the tomb? 5 Days? Something is wrong with Easter.

Those who do not read history are doomed to repeat it.


Polycrates wrote this to the Roman Bishop Victor:

We observe the exact day; neither adding, nor taking away.

For in Asia also great lights have fallen asleep, which shall rise again on the day of the Lord’s coming, when he shall come with glory from heaven, and shall seek out all the saints. Among these are Philip, one of the twelve apostles, who fell asleep in Hierapolis; and his two aged virgin daughters, and another daughter, who lived in the Holy Spirit and now rests at Ephesus; and, moreover, John, who was both a witness and a teacher, who reclined upon the bosom of the Lord, and, being a priest, wore the sacerdotal plate. He fell asleep at Ephesus. And Polycarp in Smyrna, who was a bishop and martyr; and Thraseas, bishop and martyr from Eumenia, who fell asleep in Smyrna. Why need I mention the bishop and martyr Sagaris who fell asleep in Laodicea, or the blessed Papirius, or Melito, the Eunuch who lived altogether in the Holy Spirit, and who lies in Sardis, awaiting the episcopate from heaven, when he shall rise from the dead?

All these observed the fourteenth day of the passover according to the Gospel, deviating in no respect, but following the rule of faith. And I also, Polycrates, the least of you all, do according to the tradition of my relatives, some of whom I have closely followed. For seven of my relatives were bishops; and I am the eighth. And my relatives always observed the day when the people put away the leaven. I, therefore, brethren, who have lived sixty-five years in the Lord, and have met with the brethren throughout the world, and have gone through every Holy Scripture, am not affrighted by terrifying words. For those greater than I have said, “We ought to obey God rather than man.”


Eusebius. Church History. Book V, Chapter 25.


Miracle at Passover

Sins affect us so slowly that we do not realize it. Take Israel as an example.

Israel rebelled against Yahwah, and one king after another was evil. Notice how many evil kings it took before Yahwah’s patience ran out and He judged the people. More than 20!

For 400 years, Yahwah had patience on them. But they did not know He was patient. They mistook His patience for non-existence. They no longer believed in Yahwah, so He allowed them to be defeated by the Assyrians time and again.

Romans 2:3-8
3 But do you suppose this, O man, when you pass judgment on those who practice such things and do the same yourself, that you will escape the judgment of God?
4 Or do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness and tolerance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance?
5 But because of your stubbornness and unrepentant heart you are storing up wrath for yourself in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God,
7 to those who by perseverance in doing good seek for glory and honor and immortality, eternal life;
8 but to those who are selfishly ambitious and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, wrath and indignation.

Since the children of Israel did not know the God of their fathers, they began seeking help from idols. They did not even realize the Assyrians were the judgment of Yahwah.

2 Chronicles 28:22-25
22 Now in the time of his distress this same King Ahaz became yet more unfaithful to Yahwah.
23 For he sacrificed to the gods of Damascus which had defeated him, and said, “Because the gods of the kings of Aram helped them, I will sacrifice to them that they may help me.” But they became the downfall of him and all Israel.
24 Moreover, when Ahaz gathered together the utensils of the house of God, he cut the utensils of the house of God in pieces; and he closed the doors of the house of Yahwah and made altars for himself in every corner of Jerusalem.
25 In every city of Judah he made high places to burn incense to other gods, and provoked Yahwah, the God of his fathers, to anger.

When good King Hezekiah began to reign, he persuaded all of Israel to come together again and return to Yahwah. The people of Israel, and even the religious leaders like the priests and Levites, were unclean and unprepared to serve in the Temple and join in the events of Passover.

The Law of Yahwah that was given to Moses states that the holy days of Passover must begin on the 14th day of the Month 1. The Law also states that all those who participate in the Passover must do a specific ceremony for cleansing and preparation. The people of Israel did not all do this. They could not prepare for the holy day by the specified date, so King Hezekiah delayed Passover by one month. Not everyone in Israel could or knew how to cleanse themselves according to the Law of Yahwah. When Passover came, some of Israel were not ready. But King Hezekiah prayed to Yahwah.

2 Chronicles 30
17 For there were many in the assembly who had not consecrated themselves; therefore, the Levites were over the slaughter of the Passover lambs for everyone who was unclean, in order to consecrate them to Yahwah.
18 For a multitude of the people, even many from Ephraim and Manasseh, Issachar and Zebulun, had not purified themselves, yet they ate the Passover otherwise than prescribed. For Hezekiah prayed for them, saying, “May good Yahwah pardon
19 everyone who prepares his heart to seek God, Yahwah God of his fathers, though not according to the purification rules of the sanctuary.”
20 So Yahwah heard Hezekiah and healed the people.

So Yahwah forgave the people! Forgiveness does not come through the Law but through repentance. Repentance is a change of heart. This is when God purified them from sin and purifies us from sin.

Notice that a changed lifestyle follows after a change of heart. All Israel obliterated their idols and returned to Yahwah (2 Chronicles 31).

After Passover, Assyria came up against Jerusalem and thought to take them as slaves, just as it had happened before to other parts of Israel. However, a changed lifestyle receives God’s protection from this world, and an angel of Yahwah descended to earth and slaughtered every solider in the army of Assyria (2 Chronicles 32:1, 20-23).

What does this mean to us?

- Do not think sin has no consequences.

- Do not mistake Yahwah’s patience as His carelessness or non-existence.

- Do not think you can do any good work to impress Yahwah with your holiness.

- Ask Yahwah for forgiveness first and realize that disobedience is sin.

- Yahwah promised to forgive us. He promised to be with us. He did this by becoming man and paying our penalty under the Old Covenant and by starting a New Covenant with us.

- A changed lifestyle receives God’s salvation.

Revelation 20
11 Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat upon it, from whose presence earth and heaven fled away, and no place was found for them.
12 And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds.
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds.
14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire.
15 And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

Lesson from American Indians and Biblical Hebrews

In the 1770’s, an unsuspecting man named James Adair stumbled across some powerful information in his curiosity for truth. You won’t get this from mainstream news, but the native American Indians descended from the Biblical Hebrews. You won’t hear this in mainstream Christianity, but the native American Indians worshiped the same god that the Biblical Hebrews did. Do you know what God’s name is?beltlooptzi

Modern Jews wear small blue cords on their religious clothing, which symbolize God’s law. They do this in obedience to Numbers 15:37-41.

The ancient Hebrews wore much bigger cords on their clothing than the modern Jews do, as illustrated by this engraved image of an Israeli king standing on the far right. The American Indians wear bigger cords like the ancient Hebrews, showing an ancient common descent.

Native American Indians wearing cords, often blue,
in the manner of the ancient Hebrews


Clothing is by far not the only similarity between the ancient Hebrews and the native American Indians.

Modern Jews and Christians both do not use the name of God (YHWH). However, the ancient Hebrews used the name of YHWH in contracts, oaths, singing, and dancing (Deuteronomy 6:13, Deuteronomy 10:20, Psalm 68:4). Amazingly, so do the native American Indians. James Adair was a man who lived among the Indians and had much to say about their Hebrew origins.


They sang the name of Yah.

Contrary to the usage of all the ancient heathen world, the American Indians not only name God by several strong compounded appellatives, expressive of many of His divine attributes, but likewise say YAH at the beginning of their religious dances, with a bowing posture of body; then they sing Yo Yo, HE HE [Hebrew letters for God's name], and repeat those sacred notes, on every religious occasion, the religious attendants calling to YAH to enable them humbly to supplicate, seems to point to the Hebrew custom of pronouncing Yah, which likewise signifies the divine essence” (p. 47).

“While dancing they never fail to repeat those notes; and frequently the holy train strike up ‘Halelu, Halelu’ then ‘Haleluia, Halelu-Yah’ and ALELUIAH and ALELU-YAH (irradiation to the divine essence) with great earnestness and fervor, till they encircle the altar, while each strikes the ground with right and left feet alternately, very quick, but well-timed” (p. 97).

“It may be objected, that the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans worshiped their gods at the dawn of day; and the Persian Magi, with all the other worshipers of fire, paid their religious devoirs to the rising sun. But, as the Indians are plainly not idolaters, or poly-theists, they sing to and invoke YAH and YO HE WAH, the divine essence, as they run along at the dawn of day to purify themselves by ablution [washing]. It seems sufficiently clear, they are not descended from either of the last mentioned states, but that their origin is from the Israelites. This law of purity, bathing in water, was essential to the Jews, and the Indians to this day would exclude the men from religious communion who neglected to observe” (p. 121).


They called God by spelling out His name in Hebrew:
Y (yod) H (he) W (waw).

“They always bow in their religious dances, because then they sing what they call divine hymns, chiefly composed of the great, beloved, divine name, and addressed to Yo He Wah” (p. 48).


Their word for “human” comes from God’s name.

“Because Man received his breath from the divine inspiration of the benevolent creator YAH, they term the human species ‘Yahwe’ which, though different from the divine essential four-lettered Name in sound, has YAH for its [root]” (pp. 54-55).



Their word for “earth” comes from God’s name.

They call the earth Yah-kane, because Yah formed it as His footstool by the power of His word” (p. 66).



They called God “Yo He Wah” (the three Hebrew letters) and Yah-Wah (not Yahweh, Jave, Java, nor Jehovah).

“From these different writers, it is plain that where the Indians have not been corrupted by foreigners, their customs and religious worship are nearly alike; and also that every different tribe or nation of Indians uses such-like divine proper name, and awful [fearful] sounds, as Yah-Wah and Hetovah, being trans-positions of the divine essential name [Yo He Wah], as our northern Indians often repeat in their religious dances. As the sound of Yah-Wah jarred in Laudon’s ear, he called it ‘Java’, in resemblance to the Syriac and Greek method of expressing the tetra-grammaton, from which Galatinus imposed it upon us, calling it Jehowah, instead of Yohewah” (p. 208).

YHWH forms

Lesson: We ought to follow the example of the American Indians, who, like the ancient Hebrews according to the Word of God spoke the name of Yahwah in songs, dancing, and oaths. They did not shy away from invoking Yahwah’s name as the habit of modern Jews and Christians is.

Yahwah Blessing

God vs. the US Government

@Jesse: Your words are truth and lovers of truth will hear. People do act like they are greater than God now. They mistake His patience for apathy. But that won’t last forever; He will judge. For me, I believe in the moment after this one – the judgment. Compare America to Israel when she forgot God:


Sins recorded


Ezekiel 22:23-31

23 And the word of Yahwah came to me:
24 “Son of man, say to her, ‘You are a land that is not cleansed nor rained upon in the day of indignation.
25 ‘The conspiracy of her prophets in her midst is like a roaring lion tearing the prey; they have devoured human lives; they have taken treasure and precious things; they have made many widows in her midst.
26 ‘Her priests have done violence to my law and have profaned my holy things. They have made no distinction between the holy and the common, neither have they taught the difference between the unclean and the clean, and they have disregarded my Sabbaths, so that I am profaned among them.
27 ‘Her princes in her midst are like wolves tearing the prey, shedding blood, destroying lives to get dishonest gain.
28 ‘And her prophets have smeared whitewash for them, seeing false visions and divining lies for them, saying, “Thus says the Lord Yahwah,” when Yahwah has not spoken.
29 ‘The people of the land have practiced extortion and committed robbery. They have oppressed the poor and needy, and have extorted from the sojourner without justice.
30 ‘And I sought for a man among them who should build up the wall and stand in the breach before me for the land, that I should not destroy it, but I found none.
31 ‘Therefore I have poured out my indignation upon them. I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath. I have returned their way upon their heads,’ declares the Lord Yahwah.”


Future judgment described


Isaiah 18:3-6

3 All you inhabitants of the world, you who dwell on the earth, when a signal is raised on the mountains, look! When a trumpet is blown, hear!
4 For thus Yahwah said to me: “I will quietly look from my dwelling like clear heat in sunshine, like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.”
5 For before the harvest, when the blossom is over, and the flower becomes a ripening grape, he cuts off the shoots with pruning hooks, and the spreading branches he lops off and clears away.
6 They shall all of them be left to the birds of prey of the mountains and to the beasts of the earth. And the birds of prey will summer on them, and all the beasts of the earth will winter on them.


Revelation 19:17-21

17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and with a loud voice he called to all the birds that fly directly overhead, “Come, gather for the great supper of God,
18 to eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all men, both free and slave, both small and great.”
19 And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth with their armies gathered to make war against Him [Yahwah] who was sitting on the horse and against His army.
20 And the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who in its presence had done the signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped its image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur.
21 And the rest were slain by the sword that came from the mouth of Him who was sitting on the horse, and all the birds were gorged with their flesh.

Yahwah: “I am God and there is no other.”

What men may or may not have called Him is irrelevant. What the New Testament text may or may not have said in its original form is irrelevant. I do not care what His name “was” or “might have been” but only what His name IS. He has been given the Father’s name (Hebrews 1) and it is this name that will seal His people’s minds/foreheads in the end (Revelation 20). If anyone looks at it with this big picture in mind, YHWH is undeniable.

YHWH forms

For 25 years, I did not know or care to know the name of Yahwah and by His grace I am alive to know. It is not something I can take pride in because the only reason I am alive to know is because He provided me with all my life’s circumstances.

I will stand to account for all the things I have done. All the actions and thoughts I have done and had, whether good or evil, will be brought to my account. The only right answer will be, “By Yahwah’s mercy He visited mankind to seal His renewed Covenant with us by His own blood, that I may have life through His name.”

He will judge fairly and impartially. He will make wrongs done to the defenseless into rights. He alone will give life to whom He will give life and death to whom He will give death, regardless of whether we think they are ‘saved’ or not. And in so doing He will be just and right, for He is God and there is no other.

By His name all will be right and all will be made new. And for His name all things will be done. And so He calls all men to repentance and in worship He accepts no substitutes. “Thus says Yahwah, the King of Israel, and His Redeemer, Yahwah of Hosts, ‘I am the first and I am the last; there is no God besides me… A righteous God and a Savior… There is none except me. Come to me all the ends of earth; I am God and there is no other…’ Men will come to Him and all who were angry at Him will be put to shame” (Isaiah).
