Who Do You Worship?

Revised: 5/15/05

And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake:
but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
[Matthew 10:22 ; 24:9; Mar 13:13; Luk 21:17]

More than a billion people, one fifth of humanity, profess to love the Savior's name. And the numbers are growing!

However, this stands in stark contrast to Messiah's own words:

Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. [Luke 12:32]

The Apostle Paul also shares this:

For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But Yahweh hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and Yahweh hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath Yahweh chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence. [1 Corinthians 1:26-29]

Do The Math!

And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having [his name and] his Father's name written in their foreheads.
And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. [Revelation 14:1-3]

If we are to believe that at the end of the age, out of all the 12 tribes of Israel, only 144,000 [Rev 7:4] will be redeemed, we would have to conclude that currently with more than five billion people on the planet, 144,000 is just a little less than the billion Christians already present, making the redeemed a very small flock!

Does that mean the rest of the 999,856,000 "believers" are deceived? In a word...yes! How could that be?

Delusion!

The reason is ... they may have gotten "religion", but they did not answer His Call, therefore, Yahweh let them be deluded.

I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not. [Isaiah 66:4]

Actually, Yahweh chose their delusion, because they chose something that he detested. And we can see what that is in the previous chapter of Isaiah, because it describes what that "delighted not" actually is.

But ye are they that forsake YAHWEH, that forget my holy mountain, that prepare a table for GOD, and that furnish the drink offering unto MENI. Therefore will I number you to the sword, and ye shall all bow down to the slaughter: because when I called, ye did not answer; when I spake, ye did not hear; but did evil before mine eyes, and did choose that wherein I delighted not. [Isa 65:11-12]

According to the prophet Isaiah, the detestable thing that was chosen was GOD! That this is the spark, which ignites Yahweh's anger. Turning their choice into their own delusion is without question, because it is an application of Matthew 7:2:

For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

The world worships "God".

Scripture says Satan deceives the world (Rev 12:9).

Who is right? Scripture, or popular opinion?

People the world over believe that God is the name of the Father, because that is what they see in the modern versions of their bibles, and what they are told from the pulpit, radio and television. Plus, common sense, as well as scripture itself, tells us that there can only be one originator of all things, The Creator!

But Satan is the father of lies (John 8:44), so that does not stop Satan from lying and claiming that authoritative position for himself. So, if scripture is true, and the world is deceived, and Satan is the Deceiver, we would expect Satan to be the center of attention. Why doesn't the world notice?

Perhaps an analogy will help to illustrate. Suppose an escaped convict steals a police uniform, badge, gun and car, and poses as a police officer. He eludes capture, and that night stops a woman, rapes her, beat her, and left her for dead. You see, she thought he was really a police officer, because everything she saw was authentic - the uniform...badge...gun... it was all very authentic... except him! That is deception!

Satan has done exactly the same thing, and by the time you finish reading this article, you will know exactly how to spot Satan as the great imposter. It's easier than you think!

Understanding the Scriptures

Bible scholars, reveal that the name of the Creator, as revealed in the Hebrew scriptures, is Yahweh, which comes from the tetragrammaton, the four lettered Hebrew name of the deity of the Old Testament. The question is... is Yahweh the same as "God", or have religions lied to us? What difference does it make...if any?

Using the KJV [King James Version], Scripture states that:

As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one. For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him;" [1Cor 8:4-6a]

What most people are not aware of, and are not told, is that there is no difference in the Greek between "gods" and "God"! We clearly observe that in the Greek there is no differentiation in the use of the term "theos" translated "god" or with a capital "G", or in the plural theoi, "gods", therefore all are used in the generic sense of meaning "mighty one" or "mighty ones", and not a personal name. We note that item #2316 in the Greek dictionary of Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible, says this about the word we see in the English as God/god(s): qeo,j theos {theh'-os} of uncertain affinity; a deity.

Is that what you have been led to believe, that "God" is "of uncertain affinity"... "a deity"? There's a huge difference from being "a deity" to being the right deity! Saying 'I worship God' is like saying 'I worship Something!'

This is readily seen in Acts 17:23 where Paul addresses the Athenians regarding their worship of the many deities of the pantheon, including one they did not know.

For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.

Once again, "theos", or in some manuscripts "theo", is used, but it is absolutely clear that the name is "UNKNOWN", because it says it is unknown! If it is "unknown", it isn't named, therefore, "theos", and its cognitive words, must be taken as generic and rendered as "mighty one/s", or perhaps "deity", unless where it is known to be a replacement for a proper name, which means the proper name must be known. To say "I worship God" is meaningless, because "God" in the generic sense does not specifically identify any deity, which means it could be anything worshipped, including Satan! In fact, there is a good reason to suspect that is the case, and we'll get to that in a moment.

The obvious conclusion is that the inherent nature of something "UNKNOWN", and Strong's "uncertain affinity" which can be any deity, cannot specifically identify any deity, and therefore cannot be a proper name. So if we were to render the same passage more correctly, the passage in 1Corinthians 8 would read:

As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other mighty one but one. For though there be that are called mighty ones, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be mighty ones many, and lords [masters] many,) But to us there is but one mighty one, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him;" [1Cor 8:4-6a]

Here is the crux of the problem..."But to us there is but one mighty one, the Father...."...but in this passage, that ONE is not clearly identified...NOT NAMED! Let me give an example of the importance of correctly identifying BY NAME, the one worshipped, in an old hymn.

For under its stroke all Nature shuddereth, and by it thou guidest aright the Universal Reason,
that roams throught all things, mingling itself with the greater and the lesser lights,
till it have grown so great, and become supreme king over all.
Nor is aught done on the earth without Thee, O God,
nor in the divine sphere of the heavens, not in the sea,
Save the works that eil men do in their folly -
Yea, but Thou knowest even to find a place for the superfluous things, and to order
that which is disorderly, and things not dear to men are dear to Thee.
Thus dost Thou harmonize into One all good and evil things, that there should be one
everlasting Reason of them all.
And this the evil among mortal men avoid and heed not; wretched ever desiring
to possess the good, yet they nei'er see nor hear the universal law of God,
which obeying with all their heart, their life would be well.
But they rush graceless each to his aim,
Some cherish lust for fame, the nurse of evil strife,
Some bent on monstrous gain,
Some turned to folly and the sweet works of the flesh,
Hastening, indeed, to bring the very contrary of these things to pass.

Notice that "God", which is also from Theos as in the NT quote above, is the one being praised, and you would probably agree that this is the great universal God, and there doesn't seem to be anything particularly wrong with it. Right? In the next section we will see that God is also called "Lord" and "Father"...and is clearly identified by name! Let's move on to the next section, and see and see if you still agree.

But Thou, O Zeus, the All-giver, Dweller in the darkeness of cloud,
Lord of thunder, save Thou men from their unhappy folly,
Which do Thou, O Father, scatter from their souls; and give them discover the wisdom,
in whose assurance Thou governest all things with justice;
So that being honored, they may pay Thee honor,
Hymning Thy works continually, as it beseems a mortal man.
Since there can be no greater glory for men of Gods than this,
Duly to praise forever the Universal Law.
[from Cleanthes' Hymn to Zeus]

This hymn was to ZEUS! ZEUS is called God! So, you worship "God"...call him "Lord", and "Father"... you say he is supreme king and governs all things, you pay him honor and give him glory...Yea Zeus! Does that mean Zeus is "God"? He is, according to Cleanthes and the ancient Greeks! Are you following the traditions of the Greeks?

Of course everyone will say...we worship the one of the bible. But how can you prove that, when you are using the same terminology of Zeus? Wasn't the New Testament written by the ancient Greeks? Wouldn't their deity be inserted in the text? It's been nearly two thousand years, and multiple translations later... how do you know what has been done? If what you say you believe in can be applied to Zeus, or any other deity, how do you know what you worship? Zeus claimed to be God, Lord, Almighty, and Father. Could others have also? Possibly! Do you know?

Prepare To Meet God!

I'm jumping track from the Zeus line of thought, because that was only used to show that "God" is not necessarily who everyone thinks he is. That is, if Zeus can be "God", then the term "God" cannot be strictly limited to just one entity. Now you are about to discover the other one!

If you had to choose to put your faith in receiving eternal life in either of two names, just using the meaning of the names, which one of these two names would you choose?

  1. Divide and Conquer.
  2. Eternal.

Did you choose?

You probably chose Eternal, isn't that true? Let's see if it matches the name of the one you worship.

The question asked you to choose based on meaning only, #1 Divide and Conquer, #2 Eternity. Here are the definitions:

  1. Divide and Conquer... is the meaning of the biblical name, God.
    The (Hebrew) root word, goode, means to attack or invade, and is associated with gawdad, which means to penetrate, cut, attack, invade, thus the derivitive God pronounced gawd, means to cut, i.e. divide, with the implication of dividing spoils of war from invading and conquering an enemy...hence, Divide and Conquer!
  2. Eternity... is the meaning of the biblical name, Yahweh, and is the eternal name of the Heavenly Father.
    The (Hebrew) root word, ehyah, means to be, to exist, therefore, Yahweh is the third person singular causative in becoming, i.e. He Exists. Used nearly seven thousand times in the bible, Yahweh is the only actual name ever used!

You wanted to worship the One Who's name means Eternity, but chances are you have been deceived into worshipping Divide and Conquer...God! How often do you hear the phrase..."good gawd"...or "oh my gawd"? This evil is imbedded into our psyche every day.

Here is the amazing part... According to scripture, in Isaiah 65:11, God IS the name of a demonic entity ... opposed to YAHWEH! Correctly rendering the proper names as used in the Hebrew, we read:

But ye are they that forsake YaHWeH, that forget my holy mountain, that
prepare a table for GoD, and that furnish the drink offering unto MeNi.

See, there are three distinct deities named: YAHWEH, GOD, and MENI. And scripture says that to worship God is to forsake Yahweh! Yahweh and God are not the same being! Yahweh is The Creator, The Almighty Father...while God is in an adversarial position against Yahweh! Not so "generic" now, is it? This does, however, show how names became a three pod shell game, with the Father's name being left out of the text, while the name of the great deceiver actually replaced the Creator's true name! Satan wants to deceive the world, so He has everything to gain, and nothing to lose ... by lying!

An Angel Exposed!

If God is not the true Creator, who is he? We find that God is the anointed angel that is known for His rebellion and his invasion of heaven!

Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king [the power behind the throne] of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Sovereign YAHWEH;
Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. Thou hast been in Eden the garden of (the) MightyOne; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of (the) MightyOne; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of Elohim: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. [Ezek 28:12-16]

So far we see that this is a very important angel, beautiful from the day he was created...walked in the garden of Eden, and the anointed angel which covers something, which some believe to be the mercy seat. However, since he was in the garden of Eden, it may be that this special angel was anointed to bring the light of truth to mankind. But this wonderful created being became greedy, and violent! This is treachery at the highest point within the angelic hierarchy!

Isaiah identifies this anointed cherub as the light-bringer, and what that iniquity actually was.

How art thou fallen from heaven, O Haylale [light bringer -(Latin-)Lucifer], son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of Elohim: 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. [Isa 14:12-14]

To Isaiah it was revealed that this anointed cherub lusted after the position, authority, and worship of Almighty Yahweh! Notice also that this angel had his own domain...below the clouds...earth! He would go up to Yahweh's throne in heaven to make his throne, or position of power, the greatest power... he would "be like the most High"! He would be worshipped!

In Revelation 12:4 we read that the angels are divided:

And his tail drew the third part of the stars [i.e. angels] of heaven, and did cast them to the earth:

And in Luke 10:18, Messiah says that Haylale is the adversary...i.e. Satan:

And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

This great adversary, Satan...the angel-of-light, rebelled, invaded heaven, dividing the angels...which is how he obtained the name that means Divide and Conquer -GoD!

This rebellious angel, who's dominion was the earth, is also the "prince of the power of the air" which influences mankind to disobey Yahweh.

Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. [Eph 2:2-3]

From Ezekiel and Isaiah we learned that Haylale was lustful, rebellious, and violent or wrathful... and that is the attitude he spreads through His deceit! Therefore, we read in Rev 12:9 that the one who Divides and Conquers [i.e. God] is the one who deceives the whole world.

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. [Rev 12:9]

Let me repeat this for emphasis! We are told that this adversary, the one who's very name, GOD, means Divide and Conquer, appears as an angel-of-light, which, is what his original name, Haylale, means! He wanted to be Supreme, like YAHWEH. He wanted to be worshipped, like YAHWEH! He wants to be The Almighty Father...like YAHWEH!

And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light [Haylale]. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. [2Cor 11:14-15]

Scripture also says that Yahweh's word is righteousness (Ps 119:123), so Satan's most clever guise is to use scripture with himself as the one worshipped...GOD! Satan dresses up with the bible the same way the escaped convict dressed up in a policeman's uniform. That is why the world doesn't notice!

In whom the mightyone of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Messiah, who is the image of Yahweh, should shine unto them. [2 Corinthians 4:4]

This powerful angel, Haylale...a.k.a. GOD, has authority over the world, hates the worship of Yahweh, and wants you to worship him instead. And you DO! He has divided mankind from our loving heavenly Father, Yahweh!

Worshipping anything other than YAHWEH is idolatry, and Haylale is a created being, an angel! Haylale is also God, therefore God is a created being...an angel!

Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind" [Col 2:18]

The traditional teaching that this angel, Haylale...a.k.a. GOD...is the Almighty Father can be categorized as a voluntary submission to angels, and an outright lie, because only YAHWEH is the Almighty Father! Sincerity of belief is not sufficient! Miracles are not sufficient! Faith is not sufficient! Only The TRUTH of YAHWEH'S Word can be sufficient! Because we are told:

"This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men"?
[note: this was directed to Israelites who observed Yahweh's Law, not pagans of other religions]

Most people reject the commandment of Yahweh to keep their own traditions, just as the Pharisees in Messiah's day. And people think they are just as right, as did the Pharisees.

Who Can Give You Eternity?

Does the result of salvation depend on the actual identity of the one making the promise, or does the result depend on what someone happens to believe?

The key is WHO you make the covenant of salvation with! Can Zeus give you salvation? Will "Divide and Conquer", i.e. "GOD", give anyone the salvation they seek? Or should we be going to The Eternal...Yahweh, to have Him fulfill His Promise? WHO made the covenant to begin with?

Only the One that actually has the authority to make and keep the covenant promise is able to fulfill those promises, and YAHWEH is the maker of the covenant! That is the difference between deception and truth.

When Messiah taught His disciples to pray, He began with "Hallowed be thy name". To hallow means to sanctify, to set apart for sacred use. Do you realize His children sanctify His name?

But when he seeth his children, the work of mine hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the MightyOne of Israel. They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine. [Isa 29:23-24]

Notice also that those in error and murmured (at Him) shall be corrected! Speaking of a future restoration of Israel, Ezekiel states:

And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am YAHWEH, saith the Sovereign YAHWEH, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes. [Eze 36:23]

Not only will Israel sanctify YAHWEH'S great name, but so will the whole earth!

For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same my name shall be great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense shall be offered unto my name, and a pure offering: for my name shall be great among the heathen, saith YAHWEH of hosts. [Mal 1:11]

In Psalm 113 we find that the servants of the true MightyOne call upon His name!

Psalm 113:1 Praise ye YAHWEH. Praise, O ye servants of YAHWEH, praise the name of YAHWEH.
2 Blessed be the name of YAHWEH from this time forth and for evermore.
3 From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same YAHWEH'S name is to be praised.
4 YAHWEH is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens.
5 Who is like unto YAHWEH our MightyOne, who dwelleth on high,

And Isaiah prophesies!

I am YAHWEH, and there is none else, there is no MightyOne beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am YAHWEH, and there is none else. [Isa 45:5-6]

When Yahweh says there is no MightyOne beside Him, He means at His level. There are other mighty ones, as the scriptures attest, otherwise the next verse would make no sense.

I am YAHWEH: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. [Isa 42:8]

Yahweh will not give His glory to any other deity, and neither should we!

For mine own sake, even for mine own sake, will I do it: for how should my name be polluted? and I will not give my glory unto another. [Isa 48:11]

The implication that praising other deities [Zeus, God, etc.] or worshipping according to the ways of other deities is polluted worship cannot go unnoticed. Not only does this elevate other deities to a position of supremacy, but it makes Yahweh's great name virtually worthless! That is a direct violation of the ten commandments..."Thou shalt not take the name of YAHWEH thy MightyOne in vain [to make no use of...to be worthless]; for YAHWEH will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain." (fuller explanation below)

Many fall into the trap of believing that their beliefs are okay and don't really care what the bible really says. That will change at Judgment Day and may cause you to be destroyed in the burning fire of Ghenna, but it is my hope that you will not have to go that way. So, listen to what the scriptures say:

Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O YAHWEH. Let them be confounded and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame, and perish: That men may know that thou, whose name alone is YAHWEH, art the most high over all the earth. [Psalm 83:16-18]

Now therefore, what have I here, saith YAHWEH, that my people is taken away for nought? they that rule over them make them to howl, saith YAHWEH; and my name continually every day is blasphemed. Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know in that day that I am he that doth speak: behold, it is I. [Isa 52:5-6]

Therefore, behold, I will this once cause them to know, I will cause them to know mine hand and my might; and they shall know that my name is YAHWEH. [Jeremiah 16:21]

And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, YAHWEH, hast not forsaken them that seek thee. [Psalm 9:10]

The Word Speaks...are you listening?

The Name Manifested!

One of the primary purposes of Messiah's coming was to reveal the true name of The Father, fulfilling Jeremiah 16:21, for we read in John the seventeenth chapter....

I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.
And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father,
keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.26 And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them. [John 17:6, 11-12,25-26]

The Messiah, a humble Jewish Rabbi, loved His Father, and held the highest respect for His Father's name. He declared The Father's Name, because it was the conduit for being connected to The Father and sharing The Father's love. His covenant is in the Father's name, and are kept under the Father's name.
[I have written elsewhere regarding the prophecies of Messiah being both executed and resurrected because of YAHWEH'S great name. You will find those, and a variety of articles at http://kahalyahweh.net. There is no request for money, and there is nothing to join. It's freely given.]

Since the first commandment is essentially to Love Yahweh with all our heart, mind, and being (Mat 22:36-38; Mrk 12:28-30), it would not be inappropriate to find the first three commandments pertaining to the exclusive use of His name, particularly the avoiding of it, as the word "vain" clearly shows.

Thou shalt not take the name of YAHWEH thy MightyOne in vain; for YAHWEH will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

Satan has polluted your worship by telling you that YAHWEH'S Great Name is not important enough to use, and is essentially worthless...thus Satan...a.k.a. GOD...is impersonating YAHWEH, the Almighty Father!

The removal from the scriptures of the true names of the Father and the Son has led mankind away from the true faith and eternal salvation. It is rather like finding a promissory note with the original maker's name replaced by someone else. While the original maker's name was on the note, it was authentic and valid, but when that original name was replaced the note became fraudulent and invalid...just like the convict wearing a policeman's uniform and badge!

Getting excited over what the note says, and
believing in the note, does not make the note valid.

For the promissory note to have value it must be in the true name of the actual maker. That promissory note is eternal salvation, and can only be obtained in the authentic name that means the same. The covenant of salvation came in the name of Yahweh, therefore only Yahweh can fulfill the promise of the covenant. The anointed angel-of-light, now called God, that rebelled against Yahweh and divided the angelic kingdom, cannot give anyone salvation! He may have your worship and adoration, but he cannot give you salvation! He can bless you with wealth, position and power [Mat 4:3-10] because he is the mighty-one of this world, but he cannot give you salvation! What will you do?

Make no mistake. Only those baptized in The Name of YAHWEH are IN The Name of YAHWEH. And only those that have the spirit of Messiah, and bear His new name, will be in the better resurrection!

Look at what Zechariah and Isaiah have to say about it.

Zechariah 14:1 Behold, the day of YAHWEH cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. 2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

3 Then shall YAHWEH go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. 4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, [Acts 1:9-12] which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. 5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and YAHWEH my MightyOne shall come, and all the saints with thee. [see also: Rev 20:6; Heb 11:35]
9 And YAHWEH shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one YAHWEH, and his name one.

For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of YAHWEH, to serve him with one consent. [Zep 3:9]
[c.f. John 10:30 and 'one' as a collective unit (Gen 2:24; Jn 17:22; Rom 12:5; 1Cor 10:17; 12:12)]

16 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, YAHWEH of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles. 17 And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, YAHWEH of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain. 18 And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith YAHWEH will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles. 19 This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.

20 In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, HOLINESS UNTO YAHWEH; and the pots in YAHWEH'S house shall be like the bowls before the altar. 21 Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto YAHWEH of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of YAHWEH of hosts

So the prophecy of Isaiah will be fulfilled:

Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I YAHWEH? and there is no MightyOne else beside me; a just MightyOne and a Saviour; there is none beside me. Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am Mighty, and there is none else. I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear. [Isa 45:21-23]

Paul agrees:

For it is written, As I live, saith YAHWEH, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to YAHWEH. [Romans 14:11][Phil 2:8-11 shows Messiah inherited His Father's glorious name at His resurrection. C.f. Heb 1:4; Rom 1:4; Eph 1:19-23 -see Name of Inheritance at http://kahalyahweh.net]

Idolatry is an issue that we would rather not face. Scripture instructs us that the prince of the power of the air rules this world, and many people forget that the world is in darkness, and cannot understand the world is also deceived. Simply put, we live under the dominion of evil, so bad things happen, unrighteousness prospers, and we must understand that it is the nature of deception to go unrecognized and unnoticed. People may be very sincere in their belief and devotion, but they may still be deceived, believing that they are in truth! They have great peace...in their deception!

No one likes to be lied to, but the fact is...Satan has used religion to lie to us, telling us to "just believe" (his lies), because truth doesn't really matter, and it's okay to pray to the Divisive and Conquering angel...i.e. GOD. So, consider this as you attribute the grace and salvation of Almighty YAHWEH to anything, or anyone, other than Him:

For therein is the righteousness of (the) MightyOne revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
For the wrath of (the) MightyOne is revealed from heaven against all impiety and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth (The Word of Yahweh) in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of YAHWEH is manifest in them; for YAHWEH hath shewed it unto them.
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and divine nature; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew YAHWEH, they glorified him not as (the) MightyOne, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible MightyOne into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Wherefore YAHWEH also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of YAHWEH into a lie, and worshipped and served the created thing (angels) more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. [Romans 1:17-25]

For this cause Yahweh gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
And even as they did not like to retain Yahweh in their knowledge, Yahweh gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of Elohim, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of Yahweh, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. [Rom 1:18-32]
*MightyOnes: the Greek term Theos and it's Hebrew counterpart Elohim, are used in the generic sense of anything that wields power. The Greek, where clearly referring to The Father, ought to be rendered Yahweh, and is noted by quoted Hebrew Texts and in other places where the proper name is indicated by specific emphasis. Where neither quote or specific reference is present, the generic prevails.

In case you haven't noticed...much of the world, especially the west, has taken a toboggan slide into moral relativism where the lusts of the individual are more important than a moral society. This effectively weakens societies and makes them slaves of their own desires, which, incidentally, makes them more controllable through their dependencies.

Religion seems to be powerless against this state of dependency, or the moral mudslide, and how can there be any great surprise when religion willingly follows Satan? So Satan is served through both religion and the debauchery of moral relativism, both of which seem content on engaging in a futile struggle for supremacy. For Satan, that is a 'heads I win...tails you loose' scenario. All the morality on earth will not negate the fact that Satan is being worshipped! The world just loves GOD!

Wrong Equation!

Part of the problem is in not understanding simple math. The world has this in mind: GOD = Creator = Yahweh! With that mindset, there is no pressing reason to use "the Hebrew name". In case you didn't notice, GOD is also a Hebrew name, making the biblical equation: GOD = Haylele = Satan. When we look at the scriptures themselves (Isa 65:11), we discover that it is not just a matter of names, but that YAHWEH and GOD are two entirely separate entities. YAHWEH is the Eternal Creator, but GOD is a created being, the angel of light that divided the angels and attempted to conquer YAHWEH! And He if he can't succeed, his next best choice is to make you fail in worshipping the True Creator, YAHWEH!

Layers!

Deception can occur in layers, so that even if one layer of deception is removed, another remains, and the deception continues..

In Isaiah 65:5 we found that YAHWEH was angered because His people chose something He detested, namely His arch-enemy, GOD. There is, however, another layer to this, as we begin to discover in Isaiah 66:5

Hear the word of YAHWEH, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name's sake, said, Let YAHWEH be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed. [Isaiah 66:5]

There is something odd about this, which is that in this verse everyone is presumably using YAHWEH'S name. They are "brethren", and they say, "Let YAHWEH be glorified"! Therefore, this is a secondary deception. The question is, how can we be using YAHWEH'S name, and be cast out of houses of worship in the name of YAHWEH?

Remember, YAHWEH said that He would choose their delusion. This deception, however, is not in teaching a lie, but in withholding truth so that a lie is the only visibility...until the revealing! The Apostle Paul understood!

For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, ... [2Thes 2:7-8]

Though this occurs at the time of the end, it had it's beginnings in antiquity. Iniquity is sin, which is essentially breaking YAHWEH'S Law ...

Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

His commandments ...

By this we know that we love the children of YAHWEH, when we love YAHWEH, and keep his commandments. For this is the love of YAHWEH, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. [1John 5:2-3]

which were the heart of His covenant ... both then and now...

And YAHWEH spake unto you out of the midst of the fire: ye heard the voice of the words, but saw no similitude; only ye heard a voice. And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone. [Deu 4:12-13; Ex 34:28]

For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith YAHWEH; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a MightyOne, and they shall be to me a people: [Jeremiah 31:33; Hebrews 8:10]

Iniquity is revealed to be against YAHWEH'S Law, thus against His Covenant...and that also means against the One Who made the Covenant! The mystery of iniquity is embodied in the one who holds the iniquity....(continuing with 2Thes 2:8)

whom the Sovereign shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
And for this cause Yahweh shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

This is most important, because it shows that accepting religion rather than seeking truth, is a fatal mistake! Now notice that believing "a lie" is a) pleasurable, and b) unrighteous. Of course we may deduce that truth and righteousness may be less comfortable. So remember this: if what is detestable and unrighteousness is understood, then the door is open to understanding the delusion.

Where is sin today?

Iniquity, i.e. Sin, is detestable to YAHWEH...and YAHWEH has put sin on "him".

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and YAHWEH hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it pleased YAHWEH to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of YAHWEH shall prosper in his hand. [Isa 53:6-10]

Few realize that the man who absorbed all sin BECAME...the man of sin (2Cor 5:21)...became a curse (Gal 3:13), and was hung on a tree...according to the law (Deu 21:22-23)! For that reason, YAHWEH blotted His defiled human name out of the book of life (Deut 29:20)...YAHWEH does not want the sin of the universe in His holy place... but resurrected His Anointed through the inheritance, and by the power, of His own name (Heb 1:4; Psa 8:1).

Yet religions adamantly insist in placing a defiled human name in the presence of the Father every time they pray!

When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) [Mat 24:15]

Historically, that was the statue of Jupiter/Zeus... but the end-time fulfillment isn't a statue, because it is something read. Something read would be the human (or any other substitute) name of Messiah!

If it is not His Name Of Inheritance, it is the name of sin!

Think about this for a second! If we believe that Messiah bore our sins...where did that sin go? If His life, Hebrew nephesh - "soul", was poured out for an offering for sin, then His blood (which covers sin), could not be resurrected and placed in the presence of His Father. Messiah appeared in flesh and bone (Luke 24:39), but not with blood.

Is this what you would rather look forward to?

And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils [fallen angels], and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries [pharmakeia -drugs], nor of their fornication [illicit sex], nor of their thefts. [ Rev 9:20-21 ]

And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of Yahweh, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory. And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain, And blasphemed Yahweh of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds. [Rev 16:9-11]

However, we are also told this:

For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father.
He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.
[John 5:22-23]

Do you honor The Son AS YAHWEH? Or do you reject His new name of glory?

Remember Isa 66:4-5?

I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not. Hear the word of YAHWEH, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name's sake, said, Let YAHWEH be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed.

It is rejection of the name YahwehShua, the name of glory, that continues the delusion!

For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones. [Isaiah 57:15]

Still think truth doesn't matter? It does to YAHWEH!

Wherefore YAHWEH also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of YahwehShua every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that YahwehShua Messiah is Sovereign, to the glory of YAHWEH the Father.

Isn't it time you rejected the angel ... Divide and Conquer?

Worship YAHWEH!

Never pray "thy will be done"... unless you mean it!
