The Final Reformation

Chapter II WHAT COMPONENTS OF THE WORSHIP OF THE SUN AND THE HOST OF HEAVEN HAVE BEEN ADOPTED?

The following customs or "hows", giving homage to, or veneration of the Sun and the rest of the host of heaven, have been adopted and are even practised today. Although they are still found in Christianity, they are not found in the Scriptures, Old Testament or New Testament. However, a few words or names are found in our translated Scriptures, which are incorrect according to the inspired original Scriptures, as far back as we can trace them. They have been brought into the translations because the Almighty turned and gave us up "to worship the host of heaven", just as He did to Old Testament Israel at various stages, Acts 7:42. He has done the same to us. Read 2 Thess. 2:3-12 too, where the shocking words appear, "Elohim will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie" those who do not believe the Truth!

THE WORD OF YAH┌WEH WARNS AGAINST BAAL AND AGAINST BABYLON

CHAPTER IV
THE PROPHETIC MESSAGE OF YAH┌SHUA OUR Messiah FOR OUR TIME

Chapter V

WE ARE OUTSIDE THE NEW COVENANT!
WE HAVE REJECTED THE SIGN OF THE ETERNAL COVENANT

Who is this "remnant" that shall escape, the "remnant whom Yah˙weh shall call", the "remnant of My people" - of which we often read in the prophetical books? This "remnant of her seed" (Rev. 12:17 KJV) is defined as those "who keep the Commandments of Yah˙weh and have the testimony of Yahush˙a The Messiah" - the two conditions required to be in that firstfruit company of Rev. 14:12. This is the firstfruit company, the remnant, those who have not defiled themselves with the "women" of Rev. 17:1-5. They are those who have heeded the command of our Leader in Rev. 18:4, "come out of her, My people". "And I will bring you into the wilderness of the peoples, and there I will bring you into the bond of the Covenant," Eze. 20: 25-27. This is a prophecy for the end-time, wherein we clearly hear from our Mighty One that "the bond of the Covenant " is Yah˙weh's requirement for us if we are to be part of the remnant. Our attention is drawn to "the bond of the covenant" in this passage.

In Rev. 11:15-19 we also read, when Yah˙weh and His Messiah put an end to the kingdom of this world to set up the Kingdom of Yah˙weh on earth, that the Ark of the Covenant is brought to our attention too - verse 19. Remember: the most important contents of this Ark of the Covenant is the Law written on two tables - the very same Law by which we all will be judged by in the Great Day of Yah˙weh - James 1:25 and 2:12. The Messiah, in His final message to us in Revelation, has emphasised the necessity for keeping His Father's Commandments in three places - Rev. 12:17, Rev. 14:12 and Rev. 22:14. He stressed it in the four Evangels as well - Matt. 5:19, Matt. 19:17, Luke 10:28, Luke 16:17, John 5:14, John 8:11, John 8:47, John 12:50. The Apostles stressed it too - Rom. 2:26-29, Rom. 3:31, Rom. 7:12, Rom. 7:22, Rom. 7:26, Rom. 8:7, 1 Cor. 7:19, 1 Tim. 6:13-14, Titus 2:12-14. James 2:10-12, 2 Pet. 2:21, 1 John 2:3-4, 1 John 3:4-10, 1 John 3:24, 1 John 5:3, 1 John 5:18, 2 John v.6 etc.

One of the saddest mistakes of the King James Version is its use of the word "testament" instead of "covenant", as it should have been. The Greek word diatheke has been rendered "covenant" some 20 times and "testament" some 13 times. Since then, this most unhappy error has been corrected, and almost all newver translations have completely eliminated the word "testament", although they all still persist with the man-made tradition of calling the last part of the Scriptures "New Testament". Just like the newer translations have now correctly done, all Greek-English Interlinears have also avoided using the word "testament" in its text. Dr. Bullinger, in The Companion Bible, appx. 95, wrote, "The word 'Testament', as a translation of the Greek word diatheke (which means covenant), has been nothing less than a great calamity; for, by its use, truth has been effectually veiled all through the centuries; causing a wrong turning to be taken as to the purpose and character of this Dispensation, by which the errors of tradition have usurped the place of important truth. The word 'Testament' as a name for a colection of books is unknown to Scripture. It comes to us through the Latin vulgate." The Interpreter's Dictionary of the Bible, vol. 4, p. 575, says, "There can be no doubt that the fundamental meaning of 'covenant' in the NT is derived from, and is a highly creative reinterpretation of, the OT berith, a two-party arrangement in which one is bound by oath." What then is wrong with the word "testament"? On the same page in this dictionary we read, "Testament: properly, a written instrument by which a person disposes of his estate, to take effect after his death."

A covenant is binding agreement between two parties; it is a two-party solemn arrangement in which one is bound by oath. On the other hand, a testament is a written instrument by which someone has disposed of his estate. This exposes the very heart of the Great Apostasy of our time. This reveals the very carnal nature of man, "Because the carnal mind ... is notsubject to the Law of Yah˙weh," writes Paul in Rom. 8:7. Also, carnal man only wants to "receive" and does not want to "serve". Yahush˙a has taught us, "It is more blessed to give than to receive," Acts 20:35. Believers are, or ought to be, in a covenant relationship with Yah˙weh, with Yahush˙a being the Mediator (Heb. 8:6, Heb. 9:15, Heb. 12:24) thereofe. Yahush˙a has solemnly instituted the New Covenant in Matt 26:28, "For this si the blood of the New Covenant which is shed for many for the remission of sins." We ought to have been in the same New (more correctly: Renewed) Covenant - Heb. 8:10, Heb.10:16 - if we take the Cup and the Bread, His Blook and His Body!

Only the "overcomers", the "little flock", are experiencing the blessings of the Renewed Covenant now, but when Yahush˙a returns, it will become a reality to all. Similarly, only the firstfruit company are now abiding by the Laws of His Kingdom, but with His Second Coming, the Kingdom of Yah˙weh and its Laws, will be binding to but when He returns, he will be King over all the earth - Rev. 11:15, Dan. 2:44, Dan. 7:18:27, isa. 24:23, Micah 4:7, Zech. 14:4-21 etc.

This world "testament", as a description of our present spiritual realm, is the heritage that we have inherited from Rome, for it has come our way, due to the use of the word "testament" in the Latin Vulgate. The word gives the wrong impression of "receiving only". It contributes to the erroneous teachings of "only believe" , "grace only" , "good works are unnecessary" , "love only" . Incidentally, love is not the rule whereby we must live, love is the principle whereby we must live. Love is the motive for the keeping of the law. It is a fallacy to think that "love" according to the world, is the same as the "love" according to the Scriptures. Scriptural love is qualified, it is specified by the stipulations of the Law. Unqualified love grants permission for the act of adultery for the sake of "love", murder for the sake of "love", etc. Scriptural love is defined as the keeping of the Commandments of Yah˙weh - 1 John 5:3 and 2 John v.6.

This doctrine of "only believe" is the fruit of the work of the "spirit that works in thesons of disobedience," the spirit in the Man of Lawlessness who instituted this "no-law-religion", the Great Apostasy, the Mystery of Lawlessness. Yah˙weh warns about this in Ps. 2:1-6, "Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against Yah˙weh and against his Anointed (), saying , 'Let us break their bonds in pieces and cast away their cords from us.' He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; Yah˙weh shall hold them in derision. Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, and distress them in His deep displeasure: 'Yet I have set My King on my separated hill of Zion'" This is exactly what has happened in our Christian world, and this is exactly the restortation which must soon come. Some time aga a young mans said he became a Buddhist because they have "no do's and don'ts". Is it much different with us? Where isthe New covenant? Is the Law of Yah˙weh truly written into our hearts and written in our minds? Sadly, we must admit: Indeed, the Mystery of Lawlessness, the Great Apostasy, has become our heritage, inherited through the traditions of men. The Man of Lawlessness has indeed taken over. "The earth is also defiled under its inhabiatants, because they have transgressed the Laws, changed the ordinance, broken the Everlasting Covenant. Therefore the curse has devoured the earth ... therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left," Isa. 24:5-6.

Not only has the Covenant been broken, but Messianic Believers have not been properly taught the basic simple, but clear Messianic message of the New Covenant: The Law of Yah˙weh written into our hearts and in our minds, by Yahush˙a, the Mediator of the New or Renewed Covenant. Therefore, we must eliminate the word "testament" from the "New Testament", as modern translations have done. Furthermore, this latter part of the Scriptures, we so dearly love, must be called: "New Covenant", and not "New Testament". That will help us remember that we are expected to be in a two-party agreement with our Mighty One if we regard ourselves in be "in the Faith". We are bound to Him by love, by His Son, the Mediator of the Eternal Covenant. We are married to Him, therefore we are faithful to Him, willingly. We delight in the Law of Yah˙weh. It is no longer a burden, it is a joy to be obedient to Yahush˙a, the Lawgiver, the Covenant-mediator.

The incorrect and un-Scriptural ideal of "testament", instead of the correct Scriptural "covenant", has truly been a "calamity", as Dr. Bullinger called it. Similarly, the older translations lack the correct Scripture words "lawlessenss" and "lawless". That too has been a major cause for the "no-law doctrine". Likewise, the erroneous rendering of Heb. 4:9 has also hidden the clear instruction of Sabbath-keeping, as previously discussed. Last of course, the substitution of the Name of the Father and the Name of the Sun, has resulted in the hiding of, and the substitution of their identities, and even the supplanting of their Names with those of idols, particularly Sun-deities. The prophecy of Yahush˙a's First Coming was given in Mal. 3:1, "'Behold ... the Sovereign, Whom you seek, will suddenly come to His Temple, even the Messenger (Angel) of the Covenant, in Whom you delight Behold, He is coming.' says Yah˙weh of hosts." Have we accepted Him, the Angel of the Covenant, the Messenger of the Covenant, the Mediator of the Covenant, to mediate the Covenant? Yah˙weh turned. and gave Israel up to worship the host of heaven. He has done the same, exactly the same, to us too -we who regard ourselves to be part of Israel! Why Because He has sent us strong delusion to believe the lie, the Great Lie that we are free from the binding Covenant relationship, "free from the Law". This has resulted in the Great Apostasy, the Mystery of Lawlessness (2 Thess. 2 Rev. 12-22). Hebrews chapters 7,8,9 and 10 make it very clear: Yahush˙a fulfilled the Old Testament laws concerning the offerings (sacrifices) and the laws concerning the Levitical priesthood - the ceremonial laws - nothing more!

We are not saved by good works. We are saved by favour (grace) through faith. We cannot earn our salvation. Paul makes this very clear in Romans 3 and 4. We are saved by favour (grace) alone. But not: we are saved by favour, through faith, UNTO doing good works. That is the clear message of Eph. 2:8-10, Titus 2:14, Titus 1:16. When we come to salvation, Yahush˙a commands us, "See, you have been made well. Sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you," John 5:14. Again, Yahush˙a said in John 8:11, "Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more." What is sin? The Scriptures emphatically describe it as lawlessness, transgression of the Law - 1 John 3:4, Exod. 20:20, Rom. 3:20, Rom. 4:15, Rom. 7:7, Jer. 16:10-11 etc. Can we truthfully say, "Thy Word I have treasured in my heart, that I may not sin against Thee"? - Ps. 119:11 NASB.

If we do not have the Law of Yah˙weh in our hearts and in our minds, we are outside the New or Renewes Covenant. This same Covenant is called the Eternal Covenant in Heb. 13:20. This Eternal Covenant has a sign: the Sabbath, according to Exod. 31:16-17. Shall we not return to the Mediator of this Covenant, Yahush˙a, and ask Him to mediate to the Eternal, Renewed Covenant?

Chapter VI

UNVEILING THE GREAT HIDDEN MYSTERY
OF SATUR(N)

In studying the subject "Satur(n)", one is struck by the overwhelming evidence of the scholars who emphasise the reat mystery of this "hidden" deity. Rev. Alexander Hislop in The Two Babylons contributes much to unveil this mystery. We have already seen the almost unanimous verdict that Rome is indeed the Second Babylon, or Mystery Babylon. The following evidence was also discovered: The ancient nameof Rome was Saturnia, the city of Saturn.275 Saturn was the "father of the gods",276 also called the father of Zeus (alias Jupiter).277 Saturn was also known as Kronos and he was known as the first King of Babylon.276 Hislop quotes Eusebius who stated that "Saturn or Belus was the first King of Babylon."278 Belus, of course, is the Greek word for Baal, as is generally known. "It was an essential principle of the Babylonian system, that the Sun or Baal was the only God." - wrote Hislop.279 Saturn was also known as Lateinos and Lateinos was identifed by Virgil as the "child of the Sun."280 Therefore, the very ancient name of Rome, namely Saturnia, the city of Saturn (alias Belus or Baal, the first King of Babylon), is further proof of Rome's identity as the Second Babylon, Mystery Babylon.

In the Preface of this bood we have already stated that "The Pagans were in the habit of worshipping the same god under different names."281 Many scholars have called this the "many masks" of thepagan idol. This "different masks" or "different names" or "hiddenness", all contrigute to the "mystery" which is so typically to be expected of the Prince of Darkness, Satan. But Yahush˙a has promised us, "For nothing is hidden that will not be known and come to light," Luke 8:17. In our endeavour to unveil the mystery , the hiddenness, of this hidden deity, we must first of all remember that the name "Saturn" did not originate from the planet Saturn. The name Saturn originated with a deity and was only afterwards given to that planet Saturn, which, as we all know, has a ring(s) or "halo" around it. Many scholars have discovered from ancient sources that this planet Saturn was connected with the sun, somehow. The reason for this is the well-known principle in astrology of "star-representation" or "star-deputising."282 In other words, as the sun sets at sunset, it becomes represented by a planet at night. It is represented by a deputy acting on its behalf. Most of the pagan nations regarded Saturn to be the chief deputy or representative of the sun, especially among the Greeks.282 That is why Saturn was designated as the "sun" in many Greek inscriptions.282

A week of feasting was held in rome, dedicated to Saturn, andit was called: Saturnalia. It lasted from 17 -23 December and it is generally admitted to have preceded the birthday of the Sun-deity on 25 December. It was known for its exuberant festivities, given to drunkenness and revelry, being a time for giving presents in the form of "images" to one another, especially to children.283 This was the origin of the Christmas custom of giving dolls to little girls.

Saturn was also known as Ninurta in Babylon.284 Ninurta was well known to be a Sun-deity in Babylon.284 The Babylonians also had a seven-day week, and their seventh-day was dedicated to Ninurta, alias Saturn.285 This fact becimes bery important to us. The weekly day of rest was transferred from the Sabbath to the Sun-day, the first day of the week, by the newly fused Church in the year 336 C.E. (or 364 C.E. ), at the Council of Laodicea, as previously mentioned. Since then, Sun-day is kept as day of rest instead of the Scriptural seventh-day of the Babylonians. In ancient Babylon the seventh-day was dedicated to Ninurta, alias Saturn, also a type of the Sun. The case was the samein Rome too, where the seventh-day of the week was also dedicated to Saturn, when they switched over from the former eight-day cycle to a seven-day cycle in the 2nd century B.C.E. So, later on i the 4th century C.E. the Church transferred the rest day from the seventh-day Sabbath to the Sun-day, and instead of the seventh-day being a day dedicated to Yah˙weh by keeping it as a rest-day and calling it the Sabbath, the name of it was replaced with "Satur-day", a day dedicated to Saturn - Just as it previously had been a pagan Rome, and in the old Semitic Babylon before. The Seventh-day Sabbath which Yah˙weh and His Creator-Son had "blessed and separated" right back in Gen. 2:3, had its name now substituted with the name of the pagan day dedicated to Satur(n), alias Baal or Belus. Further, the rest of the Sabbath-day was moved forward to Sun-day, previously instituted by Constantine in honour of the venerable day of Sol Invictus, the day of the Sun-deity.

Then we discovered something which startled us. Saturn was identified with Baal too.286 There was another ancient Etruscan (old Italian) deity named "Satre" (pronounced: Sater), also called Sator. W.H. Roscher mentions two scholars who regarded this name to be an old name for Saturn was his son.287 Hislop states that Saturn is known in Chaldee (Babylonian language) as "Satur", and that this Satur was "caononised" by Romeand a festival instituted for March 29th, dedicated to "St. Satur".288 Further research brought us the schocking discovery that Satur is the goat-legged deity which we all know since our childhood days to be Satan! The Greeks spell his name Saturos, that is: "Satur" in English. It has erroneously been spelt "Satyr" in English books, most probably because Satan was determined to hide his identity from us. Any Oxford Dictionary will confirm the Greek form as: Saturos. This is also affirmed by Hislop289 and by F. Commelin.290 These Saturs were headed by Pan, who also was half-man and half-goat.

These Saturs are found in Scripture, in Isa. 13:21, being identified here as part of Babylon. The Saturs, and their leader Pan, are also known as "Goat-gods", and described by dictionaries as lust deities (see any dictionary under "Satyr"). J.M. Robertson, Christianity and Mythology, pp. 319-325, describes in detail how the early Babylonians called the Sun: "the Goat", that the "goat-god" was the "Sun-god". he also states that the scapegoat Azazel of Leviticus 16 was a figure of Satan, as was proclaimed by Origen. He also mentions on p. 231 how the ancient Babylonians "consecrated the seventh-day (Saturday) to their supreme and sinister deity Saturn." On p. 232 he states that Saturn was known to the Romans as Deus Latius, the diety of the Latins. A deity with two goat-legs has always been identified with Satan, by ancient Jews as well as Christians. Is is possible, that even the names "Satur" and "Saturn" are related to the name "Satan"? Jacob Grimm thrice mentioned this possibility.291 Hislop also mentions this likelihood thrice.292 However, the stongest witness is that which comes from the etymological evidence, and the potrayal of the goat-legged Satan, being identical to that of Satur, as well as the Scriptual evidence of Isa. 13:21 in the King James Version.

The Sabbath of Yah˙weh starts at sunset Friday night and ends 24 hours later at sunset. In that period of 24 hours the world is seeking its pleasure, parties, liquor, shopping, sports and festivities - in fact, a miniature Saturnalia, if only now kept for one day. The very nature of Satur is often let loose. This is the way of man, as opposed to the Way of Yah˙weh. This is the carnal way of spending the seventh-day of the week, as opposed to the spiritual feast in which the people of Yah˙weh should be delighting themselves in (Isa. 58:13, Lev. 23:2-3).

The Church has rejected the Covenant, the Eternal Covenant withthe Sabbath as its sign, now being the New Covenant, which as the Law of Yah˙weh, the Ten Words, written into our hearts and in our minds. Therefore, Yah˙weh has given us up to worship the host of heaven. Therefore the Woman is clothed with the Sun, the Moon at her feet, and the Stars on her head. The wine of fornication has made us happy, but it has also dulled our senses. Therefore we can no longer discern between what is right and what is wrong -in the sight of our Heavenly Father of course.

The name of the day of Satur (or Satan?), namely Saturday, has taken the place of the day of Yah˙weh, the Sabbath. The Seventh-day of the week is spent according to the ways of the "Hidden One" after whom it was named: SATUR or SATURN, instead of dedicating it as a Sabbath, according to the One who instituted it right back in Gen. 2:3. To have a day of rest, the Western world has preferred the day of the Sun, a day which was originally dedicated to the Sun-deity, "Sol Invictus my companion", by emperor Constantine.

Because of our rejecting the Eternal Covenant's sign, the Sabbath, and the truth of the eternal binding validity of the Moral Law, the Ten Words - therefore our Heavenly Father has sent us "strong delusion" that we "should believe the lie," 2 Thess. 2:11.

The 24 components of Sun-worship are indeed 24 proofs that Yah˙weh has turned, and has given us up to worship the host of heaven. This alarming fact of the "day of Satur" is even further proof, shocking evidence, jolting us out of our "deep sleep". "Awak to righteousness, and do not sin," 1 Cor. 15:34.

Chapter VII

CONCLUSION

The time for the Final Reformation has come, even if this Final Reformation requires us to take a big step. The Body of must be born, and a birth is indeed a radical experience. The birth of the Renewed Israel, or True Israel, or the Remnant, the Few - whatever you wish to call it - is to take place. The Scriptures speak often of this great event, this end-time birth: Rev. 12:5, Micah 4:6-10, Micah 5:3, Ps. 22:31, Ps. 102:18, Matt. 24:8 etc. Micah 5:3 describes it so well, "Therefore He shall give them up, until the time that she who is in labour has given birth; then the remnant of His brethren shall return to the children of Israel." The time of this birth is the time of the Great Tribulation, as The Messiah said in Matt. 24:8, "But all these things are merely the beginning of the birth pangs," NASB, the time of the labour pains, "the first pains of childbirth," Matt. 24:8 Good News Bible. The tribulation of the end-time will bring forth the restoration, the Remnant, the Renewed Israel. "When you are in tribulation and all these things come upon you in the latter days, you will return to Yah˙weh your Mighty One and obey His voice," Deut. 4:30 RSV. Yahush˙a will remain in heaven "until the times of restoration of all things," Acts 3:21. The True Worship must be re-established, the Body of The Messiah, the Assembly or Congregation of Yah˙weh, must come out of Babylon, must be delivered from the sin, the pollution of Sun-worship, the worship of the host of heaven. The Eternal Covenant, the Renewed Covenant, needs to be rediscovered.

The Scriptures, especially the prophetic books, abound with prophecies concerning this final restoration of Israel. What will this "Israel", the Renewed Israel consist of? We read in Acts 15:14-17, "Simon has declared how Yah˙weh at the first visited the Gentiles to take out of them a people for His Name. And with this the words ofthe prophets agree, just as it is written: 'After this I will return and will rebuild the tabernacle of David which has fallen down. I will rebuild its ruins, and I will set it up, so that the rest of mankind may seek Yah˙weh, even all the Gentiles who are called by My Name, says Yah˙weh Who does all these things.'" "A people for His Name ... even all the Gentiles who are called by My Name" - is the very description of the firstfruit company of Rev. 14:1. It is the very description of repentant, restored True Israel, amongst whom are also the Gentiles who are grafted into the natural olive tree, Rom. 11:17-24. Read also Eph. 2-11, Rev. 21:12.

This is confirmed, and revealingly described, in Isa. 56:6-7, an end-time prophecy, describing the salvation of the Gentiles, "Also the sons ofthe foreigner, who join themselves to Yahweh, to serve Him, and to love the Name of Yah˙weh, to be His servants - everyone who keeps from defiling the Sabbath, and holds fast My Covenant - even them I will bring to My Separated Mountain." The end-time blessings are only for repentant, believing and obedient Gentiles who are joined to Yah˙weh, grafted into Israel, the Renewed Israel. These are the only ones that will be saved in the end-time. Read Isa. 14:1, Jer. 30:11, Jer. 16:19-21, Zech. 2:11, Amos 9:8-12, Zech 8:23, Numb. 15:15-16 etc. Gentiles who are saved, are grafted into the natural olive tree, True Israel, if they are to partake of the root and fatness, of the blessings that were promised to Tru Israel - Rom. 11:17-24.

Gentiles who are saved have not taken the place of Israel, thay can only be "fellow citizens", "fellow heirs" and "partakers of His promis in The Messiah" - read Eph. 2:19 and 3:6. The Gentiles have not superseded Israel, no, they are only "partakers of their (Israel's) spiritual things," Rom. 15:27. Apostate Israel, especially for their unbelief in The Messiah, as well as apostate Christianity, especially for their transgression of the Law, must both come to repentance. The prophecy for the end-time comes to us in Isa. 30:20-21, "And though Yah˙weh gives you the bread of affliction and the water of oppression yet your teachers (or: Teacher) will not be hidden anymore. But your eyes shall see your teachers (or: Teacher), and your ears shall hear a word from behind you, saying, 'This is the Way, walk in it' - when you go right or when you go left" - Green's Interlinear. For almost 2 000 years Christians have made earthly men theri teachers, instead of getting all their teachings from the One who purchased them, the One who fave His Life for them: Yahush˙a The Messiah. He said in Matt 23:8, "But you, do not be called Rabbi, for one is your Teacher, the Messiah, and you are all bretheren." Again He repeated this in verse 10, "And do not be called teachers, for one is your Teacher, the Messiah."

Our Messiah is busy preparing His Bride, separating her and cleansing her with the washing of her water by the Word - Eph. 5:26. "And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen represents the righteous acts fo the saints," Rev. 19:8. "The Remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies," Zeph. 3:13 KJV. If we accept Yahush˙aas our personal Saviour, accept His forgiveness for our sins, He then comands, and teaches us, "Sin no more" (John 5:14); "Go and sin no more" (John 8:11).

Those who are born again, sin not, sin no more - 1 John 3:8 and 9, 1 John 5:18. The most dedicated believer can stillsin unintentionally, or in a moment of weakness can stillsin unintentionally, or in a moment f weakness while under pressure. For this unintentional sin there is complete forgiveness if we "confess and forsake" - Prov. 28:13. The forgiveness for unintentional sin is repeatedly reaffirmed - Numb. 15:22-29, Lev. 4:2-28, Lev. 5:15-18 and Heb. 9:7. But if we sin willfully or presumptuosly or intentionally, after we have received the knowledge of the Truth, there remains a terrible price to pay - Heb. 10:26-31, Numb. 15:30-31, Ps. 19:23, Ex. 34:7. By doing this we "trample the Son of Yah˙weh underfoot," and count "the Blood ofthe Covenant ... a common thing," Heb. 10:29. The Psalmist could testify to deliverance from intentional sin in Ps. 119:11 NASB, "Thy Word I have treasured in my heart, that I may not sin against Thee." Can we testify too?

The answer to this Great Apostasy is: Yahush˙a. The only One who will lead us out of this wilderness is: Yahush˙a. John Wesley said something like this: When I looked into the Law, I realised that I was a sinner, and that I needed salvation. The Law therefore pointed me to The Messiah, and I vound savation in Him. The Messiah then pointed me back to the Law, forHe commanded me to keep the Law. But I found that I could not keep the Law by myself. Again the Law referred me back to The Messiah through Whom I am enabled to keep the Law. This indeed summarises the Glad Tidings, the Evangel. Yahush˙a does teach,and commands usto keep the Law - Matt. 5:19, Matt 7:23, Matt. 13:41, Matt. 19:17, Mark 7:8-13, Luke 8:21, Luke 10:28, Luke 16:17, John 5:14, John 8:11, John 8:47, John 12:50, John 14:23-24, John 17:6, Rev. 12:17, Rev. 14:12, Rev. 22:14.

In His final message to us, the book of Revelation, He encourages and admonishes us to "overcome" - to overcome sin, including the sins of idolatry which originated from pagan Rome. The Messiah uses the verb "overcome" no less than 17 times in Revelation. Only through Him and by Him can we overcome - John 16:33, Rom. 8:37, 2 Cor. 2:12. "I can do all things through The Messiah Who strengthens me," Phil. 4:13. Yahush˙a warned us "without Me you can do nothing," John 15:5. How does He do it? "If anyone oves Me, he will keep My Word; and My Father willlove him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him ... and the Word which you hear is not Mine but the Father's Who sent Me," John 14:23-24. The Word that He teaches us, is not His own, but it is His Father's Words - John 14:24, John 3:34, John 7:16, John 8:28, John 8:40, John 12:49, John 17:8. This identifies the True Messiah, our only Great Prophet - Deut. 18: 18-20. In contrast to this, the false Messiah or false prophet speaks his own words - Deut. 18:20> We must abide in His Words and His Words must abide in us - John 15:7 and John 8:31 -inluding the Ten Words, the Living Words (Deut. 4:13 and Acts 7:38). Only if a man keeps His Words will the Son and His Father make Their "abode with him", John 14:24 KJV. Only then does he possess Their indwelling power, for him to overcome sin. "For it is Yah˙weh Who works in you both to will and to work on behalf of His good pleasure," Phil 2:13. The Good News Bible reads "Because Yah˙weh is always at work in you to make you willing and able to obey His own purpose." This wonderful experience of The Messiah working in us, is also found in Heb. 13:20-21, "Now the Mighty One of peace ... make you perfect in every good work to do His will, working in you that which is well-pleasein in His sight, through Yahush˙a The Messiah ..." KJV.

Yahush˙a found the religionists of His day worshipping the Mighty One by means of vain worship, "Thus you have made the Commandment of Elhohim of no effect by your tradition." Instead of keeping the Father's Ten Words, they were keeping and "teaching as doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the Commandment of Yah˙weh, you hold the tradition of men ... making the Word of Yah˙weh of no effect through your tradition which you have handed down." Similarly, Paul warned in Col. 2:8, "Beware lest anyone should cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, accordingto the basic principles of the world, and not according to The Messiah." Paul's ministry to the philosophic Greeks at Athens (Acts 17:16-34) is equally applicable for our time. The Greeks had an altar "to the unknown Yah˙weh." The identity of the True Mighty One was not known. The same is found today. The Father's Name and His Son's Name have been hidden and replaced by other names derive from Sun-worship. Also, the all-important truth of our Covenant-relationship wil Yah˙weh has been hidden from us. Up to now we have worshipped the "unknown Mighty One" in an ignorant way, because of the philosophies and traditions of men. The clear call for repentance thus goes out, "Truly, these times of ignorance Yah˙weh over-looked, but no He commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man Whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all, by raising Him from the dead," Acts 17:30-31. The time for the Final Reformation, the restitution fo the True Worship, has come. We must allow Yahush˙a to "redeem us from all lawlessness," Titus 2:14 Greek text. Only then will we be teh "called, chosen and faithful", will we be part of the firstfruit company, the overcomers, the Isra-El, callingon the Name of Yah˙weh and being in the New Covenant, the Renewed Covenant, the Law of Yah˙weh in our hearts and minds.

Two things are required of us, and these two things are an absolute necessity if we seek Eternal Life. They are coupled, and alternatedly referred to as:

*Rebirth, then Separation (sanctification).

*Justification by faith, then doing righteousness (First Gen. 15:6, then Gen. 26:5).

*Imputed righteousness, then imparted righteousness.

*Passive righteousness, then active righteousness (Luther).

*Salvationfrom teh burden ofsin,then deliverance from the power of sin (Oswald Smith).

*Faith, then good works (Eph. 2:8-10, Titus 2:14, James 2:14-24).

*You have been made well, then: Sin no more (John 5:14).

*Forgiveness, then: Go and sin no more (John 8:11).

*That which He has wrought for us on Golgotha, then Him working in us.

*Faith in Yahush˙a, then keeping the Commandments of Yah˙weh (Rev. 12:17, Rev. 14:12).

Accept Yahush˙a as your personal Saviour, but also as your only Teacher, Matt. 23:8 and 10. "Yet your Teacher will not hide Himself any more, but your eyes shall see your Teacher. And your ears shall hear a word behind you saying, 'This is the Way, walk in it,' when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left," Isa. 30:20-21 RSV. "Looking for the blessed hope and esteemed appearing of our great Mighty One and Saviour Yahush˙a The Anointed One, Who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himslef His own special people, zealour for good works," Titus 2:13-14 RAV. it is imperative that we believe in, and obey the Son, for "he who does NOT OBEY THE SON shall not see life, but the wrath of Yah˙weh rests upon him" - John 3:36 RSV (capitals mine. Obedience to the Son, and to believe in Him, are equally important. See also Matt. 13:11-15, John 8:31-36, John 8:51, John 17:6, Rev. 14:4, 2 John v.9, Matt. 7:24-27. Our Messiah said in Luke 6:46, "But why do you call Me 'Master, Master,' and do not do the things which I say?"

We are to obey the Messiah in all things, even His final command to us in regard to our participation in the sins of Babylon:

"COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE, LEST YOU TAKE PART IN HER SINS, LEST YOU SHARE IN HER PLAGUES," Rev. 18:4 RSV (capitals mine). "Coming out of her" requires of us to stop taking part in her sins, particularly the 24 components of Sun-worship, or the worship of the host of heaven, which were inherited by the Church. These components are not acceptable to Yah˙weh, just as little as Israel's golden calf was acceptable to Him. Although Israel attempted to use the golden calf to honour Yah˙weh with (Exod. 32:5), our Mighty One's "wrath burns hot" against such practice. The "wicked abominations", as He had labeled Sun-worship customs which are mixed with the True Worship (Eze. 8:9-16), are not acceptable to Him. If we are to "overcome", we are to repudiate these 24 components of Sun-worship, as well as to repent of keeping the Seventh-day of the week according to the way of Satur, and to return to Yah˙weh through His Son Yahush˙a.

By accepting Yahush˙a as Saviour, and then as our only Teacher, He teaches us, He opens our eyes, he opens our understanding - as we have already stressed. We must abide in His Word. He said in Jn. 8:31-34 NASB, "If you abide in My Word, then you are truly disciptles of Mine: and you shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free" - free from sin, free from being a slave of sin, verse 34. Yahush˙a is the Truth, Jn. 14:6, by testifying to the Truth which He received from His Father. He said in Jn. 18:37, "For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, tobear witness to the Truth." He prayed to His Father in Jn. 17:17 and said to Him "Thy Word is Truth." KJV. This same Truth, as was proclaimed by Yahush˙a, isthat which sets us free from sin, free from bondage to the "abominations and filthiness of her fornications" Which we have inherited from Mystery Babylon, the "wicked abominations" of Sun-mixed worship, or Baal-mixed worship.

Like Gideon of old, we desperately need the help and delivery of Yah˙weh in the time of the Great Tribulations, which is becoming a reality. He will not deliver us in this time unless we too, build and altar Yah˙weh - restore the pure worship to Yah˙weh. An altar is symbolic of the "ways", the mode of worship, or means or "hows" to worship. At the same time, we, like Gideon, need to break down the altar of Baal - the more, the customs, the "hows" of Sun-worship, all 24 of them, need to be repented of and eliminated. Only then can we return to the Almighty, and He will return to us.

He has turned away from us and has given us up to worship the host of heaven, as we have repeatedly said. Elohim said in Hos. 5:15, "I will return again to My place till they acknowledge their offence. Then they will seek My face; in their affliction they will diligently seek Me." Hosea then cals out in Hos. 6:1, "Come, and let us return to Yah˙weh; for He has torn, but he will heal us; He has stricken, but He will bind us up." "'Return to Me,' says Yah˙weh of hosts, 'and I will return to you,' says Yah˙weh of hosts 'Do not be liek yoru fathers, to whom the former prophets preached, saying, 'Thus says Yah˙weh of hosts: Turn now from your evil ways andyour evil deeds.' 'But they did not hear nor heed Me,' says Yah˙weh," Zech. 1:3-4.

For those who are seeking the blessings of Yah˙weh, for those who are seeking a delivery in this time of tougble, in the Great Tribulation - the call goes out:Return to Him, and He will return to us. To those believers who yearn for His Second Coming - the call goes outs: Come out of the sins of Mystery Babylon. For those who long for Yahush˙a to return and assume His rightful position as King of kings and as High Priest in the Separated Place - the call goes out: The Separated Place must first be swept thouroughly and the chaff of Sun - or Baal - worship be burned with eunquenchable fire.

The message of Elijah must again go forth in the end-time, before the great and terrible Day of Yah˙weh comes - Mal. 4:5. Elijah found the people in mixed worship, the worship of Yah˙weh and the worship of Baal (the Sun-deity). the message of Elijah, a message of challenge, is again proclaimed, "How long will you falter between two opinions? If Yah˙weh is The Mighty One, follow Him; but if Baal, then follow him," 1 Kings 18:21. Shall we do as Israel did, by "answering him not a word"?

Our sins, our transgression of the Law, can only be atoned for the Blood of Yahush˙a. His Blood is "the Blood fo the Eternal Covenant", as is clearly related in Heb. 13:20 RSV, NEB, NASB, NIV. In Heb. 10:29 His Blood is called "the Blood of the Covenant". This Eternal Covenant is the same as the Renewed or New Covenant. If we are earnestly seeking Eternal Life, dare we contine to trample underfoot His Blood which He shed to bring us into the Eternal Covenant (Heb. 13:20), also rejecting the sign of the Eternal Covenant, the Sabbath? - Ex. 31: 16-17. The Eternal Covenant is the very same Eternal Covenant which Yah˙weh says will be found (on the Day of Judgment) to be "broken" by the "inhabitants of the earth", Isa. 24:5.

The message on the day of the Pentecost in Acts 2 was given at the time of the Former Rain. The same message is again prodlaimed for the time of the Latter Rain, "'Men and brethren what shall we do?' Then Peter said to them, 'Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the Name of Yahush˙a The Messiah for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Spirit of Separation. For the promise is to you and to your children, and all who are afar off, as many Yah˙weh our Mighty One will call.' An with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, 'Be saved from this perverse generation,'" Acts 2:27-40.
