It's Time To Awaken
This is a call for Christians to closely examine what they have been taught and to return to the faith once delivered to the Set Apart believers (Jude 1:3); to reject the mark of the beast - the worldly man-made religious system that defies the living Elohim; and to accept the mark of YHWH.
On every page of this web site you have seen who the set-apart believers are - the ones who have the Mark of Elohim. Notice that it is two parts – as in faith without works is dead as works without faith is dead. This is even more eloquently stated, "And the dragon was enraged against the woman; and he went to make war upon the remnant of her seed who keep the Commandments (Mitzwot - Instructions) of Elohim and have the testimony of Y'shua." Rev. 12-17
This is consistent with the "Mark of YAHWEH": "Hurt you not the earth, nor the sea, nor the trees, until we have sealed the servants of our Elohim upon their foreheads." Rev 7:3.
Chapter 7 then goes on to describe the 144,000 that are sealed. But this number is a remez (a hint) which Andrew Gabriel Roth notes in footnote 26 on page 690 of the Aramaic English New Testament as:
"144,000 refers to a type of people, rather than a numerical sum; 10 = testimony 12 = the Yisrael of Elohim; 10 x 10 x 10 is a three fold testimony representing YAHWEH Eloheinu YAHWEH Echad [YAHWEH our Elohim YAHWEH is one]; 12 x 12 is the Yisrael of Elohim who are spiritually re-born in Mashiyach [Messiah]. These sing the song of Moshe and have the testimony of the Lamb. This can also be understood as "the 144,000's" (plural); a Kedoshim (Set Apart) people. There is a Mishchah (anointing) placed on this faithful remnant, according to Torah (Moshe) and Mashiyach."
Adding a note of my own, literally 10 x 10 x 10 x 12 x 12 (144,000's) is a number like infinity to which only YAHWEH knows the exact answer.
Did Messiah Abolish Torah?
Many are probably asking, "But I thought Jesus nailed Torah - the Law - to the cross". Think of how contradictory this false doctrine is compared with the rest of scripture. Consider the scriptures cited above and then compare this with Matthew 5:17-20, "Do not think that I have come to loosen (abolish) Torah or the Prophets, I have not come to loosen but to fulfill. For truly I say to you that until heaven and earth pass away not one yodh or stroke will pass from Torah until everything happens..." Read it in whichever version you choose. Not one yodh, not one stroke will pass from Torah".
And while we are here, let's address the false doctrine of "Jesus fulfilled the law so we don't have to..." In Hebrew, this word is "make complete". The idea preached in many Christian churches is that Messiah fulfilled this so now it's done away with. But let's look at a simple example to see how ludicrous this is.
You drive down the street at the posted speed limit. You stop at every stop sign and red light. You signal every turn. Does this mean because one person fulfilled the traffic laws that the traffic laws are now done away with? Tell that to the Judge. "Your honor, Bob fulfilled all the traffic laws so I don't have to".
Read the introduction to "Netzarim History" on this web site to discover what Rav Shaul (Paul) really said about Torah (it's right there in the scriptures).
I refer you to the "Matthew 5:17-20" page and the "Passover Week" page on this web site for more on this. You will discover that heaven and earth have not yet passed away and that all has not yet been fulfilled. There are three (3) of Yahweh's seven (7) Moedim Feasts that remain to be fulfilled in the future. Taking that into consideration, isn't it time you started relying on the Ruach haKodesh (Set Apart Ancient Spirit - Spirit of Mashiyach) to teach you what you are reading in the scriptures. Yeshua said He gives us the Ruach to lead us into truth and understanding. Why then, do so many of you rely on men to tell you (their ideas and doctrines) what the scriptures say? It is time for you to start rightly dividing between the traditions of men and what the scriptures actually teach.
Two Patterns, Two Marks
What we see throughout the scriptures are two distinct patterns. One pattern is the "Mark of YAHWEH", following YAHWEH's instructions and transforming into His image. The other is the mark of the beast (man creating Elohim after his own image).
And now you should understand that you actually have a choice between two marks. One mark you can only get one way. The other mark you can get in two different ways - one is by default.
