AWAKE TO POWER!



Over the course of the next few weeks, I am going to publish on this Blog, another book that I put together many years ago (1998) but which never seen a publisher! The books aim is to help Christians understand more clearly many of the more difficult passages and to equip them with the necessary tools that enable one to "rightly divide" God's Word as we have been commanded to do. To me, the teachings of the various churches leave much to be desired, considering that too many of them are run by Masons and other workers of the occult! I pray that it will be a blessing and an aid to your understanding -

AWAKE TO POWER!







Another unpublished work from the author of:
The Best-Laid Schemes O' Mice An' Men...






INTRODUCTION



In the last days of the Grace Administration, shortly before the return of Yashua HaMasiyach, the only begotten Son of the Creator God Yahweh, to collect His faithful Church, a problem had to be resolved. Yahweh, found Himself with a dilema. For many centuries, His Church had been in disaray with the constant emergence of new denominations, churches founded on a verse of scripture, and walking without power! There had been in times past, more problems between denominations, but now emerging was a new coloboration between them, exchange of beliefs and more tolerance.
This new allegience of love and friendship between denominations allowed the possibility of teaching themes which earlier had been ignored or sidestepped by some. Healing, wealth, distributing to the poor, Covenant promises, the gift of holy spirit and its manifestations etc. But one thing was still lacking that needed seen to before Yahweh would send His Son for The Gathering.

No-one it seemed, within the Church was willing to stand bold and clarify certain doctrines that had crept in discreetly, firstly by mouth during the first and second centuries, and finally in written form, which became accepted dogma by the fourth century. No-one cared enough about the accuracy and integrity of the Creator's Word. The Word that His prophets lived and died by. The Word that His only begotten Son lived and died for.

Study principles, logic, and the proper use of language, to the majority of them, did not make any sense, which of course aided them in arguing their beliefs. They knew full well that the proper use of language alone would force them into re-evaluating their dogmatic beliefs. In other words, make their beliefs defunct! They argued that logic cannot be ascribed to the Creator as He sits outside of all boundaries! The words "faith" and "mystery" were used by them, to cover over anything they could not explain.

In the early days of the Church, Yahweh's people were a formidable forceto be reckoned with, its apostles and disciples sold themselves over to the Creator as bondslaves to His Word, speaking forth boldly and obeying His Word to the letter! Yahweh's people in those days, had all things for the common use of all who were called. Those who gathered much, had nothing left over, those who had little, did not lack. They had learned very quickly to live and love as a family - as we are commanded. In turn, they reaped the power of the Creator God! As it is written, "Seek ye first the kingdom of God (Yahweh), and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you".
Sweeping through the nations, with mighty signs, miracles and wonders, they added to the family of God thousands daily. Without all the technological power of today's Church, who have air travel, satellite communications, TV and radio, the early Church had done a truly miraculous job! What did they have at their disposal that the modern Church of today does not? Had God truly bestowed upon them special powers that died with the apostles? The answer to this question is quite simple and plain, although the churches will deny it wholeheartedly - "Yahweh is NO respecter of persons", and "Ask and it shall be given unto you".

The problems had come because the Church had allowed blindness to fall upon its eyes and deafness stopped its ears. A veil had fallen down over its spiritual heart and it wandered blindly, not hearing the Creator - and its heart had also grown stony cold and hard as iron! It had turned covetous and proud and had put the Creator where it wanted Him to be and not in His rightful place!


HOW HAD THIS COME ABOUT?

Let us digress a moment and explain: The Word of Yahweh in its original God breathed form, is the same Word we have today, more or less, but something happened around the year 100 AD which slowly grew, something obnoxious and evil, but something that man had his hand in. By a proper study of God's Word in the ancient texts, it can be seen that the name YHWH - pronounced Yahweh, called the Tetragramaton, shown below, ended up being replaced by God's people with the title Adonai, meaning Lord (Baal).



This Name, given to God's people as the Name never to be forgotten by them, ended up being so highly regarded that they substituted it! Baal is a title that Yahweh's adversary, the Devil, has chosen as one of his names! Lucifer, having been made more wise than any other beast (being) of the field, had always been at work against Yahweh's Word and against everything ordained by Him since the day that iniquity was found to have entered him. As it is written:

Isaiah 14: 12: "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, which did weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, 'I will ascend into heaven, I will exhalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the Mount of the Congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High.'

This prophecy is referring to him being cast out of the lower heavens in the future, which has not yet happened. Today he is known as the god of this world and the prince of the power of the air. His domain at the moment is the lower heavens although he is allowed seemingly to visit the Earth now and again, but as yet, the Earth is not his domain, he only rules over it. The Word tells us that he had been in the Garden of Eden and that he had been created as a covering churubim.

Ezekiel 28: 13: "Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering..." verse 14: "Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire."

Since his fall, he has constantly been on the attack - he and the angels who fell with him, of which we know it consisted of one third of all created angels:

Revelation 12: 4: "And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth..."

They keep up the struggle in a vain attempt to try and avert their pronounced doom, destroying all that they can, and perverting as many humans as possible. First Eve fell prey to Lucifer's wickedness and deceiving power, then Adam, not wishing to lose the woman he loved, committed high treason against his Maker by following in his wife Eve's footsteps. When Adam fell, he flicked the switch from being in direct contact spiritually with the Creator, to a direct line with Satan. The book of Leviticus tells us that the life of the flesh is in the blood, in other words, that is where our spiritual spark of life is that gives us breath-life. Lucifer has since those days, been hard on the heels of God's chosen and making his best attempts at corrupting His Word as well as man himself! The Authorised King James Version, is the best and least corrupt of all Bible versions except perhaps the older Geneva Bible. All other versions today, since the King James, are corrupt Satanic/Communist versions that cannot be relied upon!

Satan has been forced to work through people, and in these modern days, the media, television, radio and the internet, give him much more scope to do so! His main tactic is to try and remain as hidden as possible. That is his best tactic as many people do not even believe that he exists. To come right out into the open, would not benefit him at all! He appears only to those who have bowed the knee to him and who worship him in the shadows. His scheme works well for him, in using it, he can work much more effectively and the results are both deadly and devstating!
It is in deploying himself in this way that he has very effectively infiltrated the Church, doing untold damage as he goes. Most Christians are not even aware of his presence! Many churches as a matter of fact, have false pastors and teachers, placed there by the intelligence services, the Masonic lodges and other Satanic, occult groups. Most of the famous pastors, such as Rick Warren, and the majority of TV evangelists, are Luciferian! Christians are handing their tithes directly to Satan and are completely oblivious to it!

From the very begining of God's Church, Satan stealthily moved in, subverting the truth, keeping many Christians under the Law, reworking Yahweh's Word wherever he could, corrupting people's understanding as he went. How did he manage to so quickly douse the flames of the powerful early Church, weakening it to its very foundations? His first ploy of course was to rouse the Romans against it by way of Emperors such as Nero (54-68 AD), and then Domitian (81-96AD), and Trajan (98-117AD), who threw believers into prison, confiscating their posessions, torturing, murdering and committing the most henious acts of cruelty and barbarity against them. It is no wonder the early flames were doused, the Devil knew clearly what he had to do to achieve it!
Satan is a very real spiritual entity, with real spirit powers. No-one should be under any illusion regarding that fact. He is also the wisest being ever created! The apostles and disciples had, you could say, and advantage over all those who followed on later, having sat at the feet of Yashua Himself, and who had witnessed the many miracles performed by Him. Yashua had thrown open the doors of Satan's kingdom for all to see - before that time, Satan had managed to remain hidden from the masses - just as it is again today! With Yashua and His apostles now gone, the Devil's job was made easier. These are the main reasons why there are no records to be found talking of miracles performed by the Church after the days of the original apostles. Not as the churches teach, that the manifestations of holy spirit died with the apostles!

Satan's aim is always to steal, kill and destroy (John 10: 10). He will steal the Word from your heart by placing doubts in your mind, work hard at keeping you in sin so that he can make you sick and eventually kill you before the time, and destroy all the good things that the Creator has ordained on this Earth like friendship, marriage, family life, love. He is a thief, a murderer, a liar and a destroyer, but to the shame of the Church in general, he has proven to be much more wise!! How very very sad!!
Our leaders, from the early centuries until today, stand guilty of a henious crime. A crime against the Creator God, Yahweh and His Word, by prophaning it and by continuing in their error, not willing to listen to any reproof nor in learning the right way of dividing the Word! It is an accepted fact that the Church gave in to pressure against it by a Roman Emperor of all people, in the 4th Century and accepted new doctrine that was neither taught by Yahweh's only begotten Son Yashua HaMasiyach, nor by His apostles or disciples. Doctrine from an Emperor who was a sun worshipper until his very death. Doctrine that became the cornerstone of modern Christianity.
Today's Church, looks on this Emperor Constantine, as its saviour against persecution in those days and a defender of God's Word, and as such, believes that he was sent by God Almighty Himself and that therefore, anything agreed upon by the Church in those days with Constantine, must be correct and a part of Church dogma! Constantine, using his political power, instead of Godly wisdom, hammered home an agreement that would suit both Pagans and Christians alike, giving the Roman Empire more stability. He effectively made it politically correct, again as it is today, to call oneself a Christian! Constantine introduced a system of granting special favours to 'Christians', that would give them a ticket to political, military and social promotion, which obviously caused an influx of false Christians into the Church.

For this service, Constantine had demanded that his voice be listened to, which gave rise to the many problems we have today within the Christian churches. Aided by Ossius, Bishop of Cordova, he forced the Church to accept what he thought should be acceptable doctrine. These beliefs came not about by rightly dividing the Word of God, but from his pagan beliefs.

During the persecution of the Church in the 2nd Century, dissertations were written by a small group of Christian intellectuals and sent to Emperors and rulers of the people in order to try and stop the violence and hatred towards Christians, defend the Gospel, and try to answer charges made against the Church. Unfortunately, these dissertations were in fact compromises between Christianity and Paganism. They were called "Apologies". They made a big impact and caused the ideas of Mary being the Mother of God, God being a Trinity and Pagan symbolism to take a much stronger root! (More information regarding how 'Jesus' became God to the Christian Church and how He became a three part God, can be found in Chapter Five of this book, WHO IS GOD?)

When the Creator's Word is changed by man, it is no longer His Word but man's word or more accurately speaking - man's lies, which holds no power! Like it was in days of old when Yahweh told His people why they were encountering so many problems:

Hosea 4: 6: "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children."

Any kind of manmade religious or political systems are "broken cisterns". Yahweh also spoke to the leaders of His people and said:

Jeremiah 12: 10: "Many pastors have destroyed My vineyard, they have trodden My portion under foot, they have made My portion a desolate wilderness".

This scripture is as apt today as it was when it was first spoken! It could have been written to many of today's pastors and teachers who do the same thing with God's Word, who stubbornly deny its truths by their ungodly refusal to obey the command of rightly dividing! The shocking reality of how quickly and easily the Devil was able to almost nulify God's Word, and the efficiency with which it was carried out, has to be noted, but what has to be noted today is the fact that the vast majority of our teachers and pastors, now stand for what was achieved by Satan, and continue to blindly magnify his lies and deceit instead of making a bold stand on the right dividing of His Holy Word!

The Devil has been aided, and continues to be so today by God's Church itself, in throwing doubt and confusion on many facets of the Creator and His Word, which is effectively stopping God's sons and daughters from being able to walk with power. He has also been aided in his desire to change the meanings of certain scriptures, removing scriptures altogether, adding scriptures and of having people worship 'Jesus' instead of Yahweh of Hosts!

An interesting note which appears in the preface to the NIV, is the fact that although it was compiled by over 100 scholars working directly from the best available Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek texts, and which work involved them in many thousands of hours of research and discussion, and which work was reviewed by more committees and given a more thorough review than any other translation, they admit that "like all translations of the Bible, made as they are by imperfect man, this one undoudtedly falls short of its goals". How most certainly true!! But exactly what goals are they talking about?? This serves as a stern warning to all Christians, that we cannot just read God's Word and take it literally without doing proper, honest research and in-depth study - rightly dividing it as commanded by its Author - and with much prayer as well! This book was put together with the sole intention of helping my Christian brothers and sisters to be able to do just that. I stand before my Creator, Yahweh, understanding that I will be held responsible for any misinterpretations that may be found within the pages of this work, but at the same time, I ask all readers to apply the principles of proper study laid out in Chapter One.
