The Mandate and Authority
The True Church
Isn't it supposed to be
Love & Obey?

by DJ. Love, Bnei HaMashalim
The Universal Roman church has
admitted that they believe that their church has the authority to change GOD's Calendar and
Laws, but what does The Eternal say? Let's first consider what Daniel saw concerning the BEAST who
makes war against the Saints.
Daniel 7:23, 25
23 Thus he said, The fourth animal (beast
or government) shall be a fourth kingdom on
Earth (Roman Empire), which shall
be diverse from all the kingdoms (before it or ever shall
be), and shall devour the whole Earth (as
it is doing now), and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces (Conquer
and Rule the World).
25 He (the Roman Beast Government) shall
speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the (True) saints
of the Most High; and he (The Beast Church-State government) shall think
to Change the Times and the Law (of
YHVH); and they (The True Saints) shall
be given into his hand until a time and times and half a time (3
1/2 periods of time).
The Fourth (and last) Beast
Kingdom on Earth is explained in Daniel Chapter 2, and is now well known to be the (so
Roman (Church & State) Empire
that was begun under the Control and leadership of the German
catholic (catholic means "Universal") Emperor
of Rome . . Constantine. This was so well understood by the German
people that, eventually, it came to be known as the early foundation of the German
First Reich. Look up "Reich" in your dictionary; My dictionary
says from 801 AD to 1806, but its' earliest beginnings were from approximately 307 AD.
However, the fourth beast government was not just simply ROME, but also, those kingdoms that
ruled during the earliest beginning of "The IRON AGE" (about
1460 BCE), and existed in the same region(s) as Babylon (Gold
Head), the Medes-Persian-Assyrians (Silver
Chest and Arms), the Greeks (bronze
midrift), the Hittites (bronze
and iron), and finally the symbolic (Iron) Roman
Even so the Iron Age unofficially began many centuries prior to its official historic date with
the Hittite Empire around 1460 BCE. The Hittites were another Church-State empire and were apparently
the "First within The Geographical Region of Prophecy" to make "Wrought Iron";
while the Romans made an early form of "Steel"; this is significant, because that was
the beginning of "Time Times and a Half Time (3,500
years of IRON Rule. This is discussed in greater detail in the Spiritual Prophecy Chapter.).
Next is an English translation of a letter from a Hittite King to someone with an interest in
obtaining iron. Iron in those days was about forty times more valuable than gold, because there
was very little of it, and also, because most of it was believed to be a gift from "The
sent to Earth as meteorites.
Letter from a Hittite King
A Hittite king writes to a valued customer about his order for iron.
The letter is probably addressed to a king of Assyria around 1500 bce:
'In the matter of the good iron about which you wrote, good iron is not
at present available in my storehouse in Kizzuwatna. I have already told you that this
is a bad time for producing iron. They will be producing good iron, but they won't have
finished yet. I shall send it to you when they have finished. At present I am sending
you an iron dagger-blade.'

Batsford 1989, page 205
It is always important to learn history and understand physical to Spiritual Parallels if one
is to have a snowballs chance in hades of deciphering prophecy. So now that we have been
given a major historic key to deciphering Bible Prophecy, what are we going to do with it? Well,
I say that a leopard is known for its spots and a tiger for its beautiful orange and black
stripes. I say that YHVH's true Assembly or Assemblies will always be known for their Righteousness,
while The Beast Churches will always be know for their lack of Righteous Humility, lack of
obedience to YHVH, lack of true Scriptural understanding, lack of being blameless, and also,
for their abundance of perversions.
So What Is The Role of The True Body of Believers In The ETERNAL'S
Plan of Salvation? First let's examine why YHVH always presents His
True Congregation (Body of Believers) as
a Virgin Woman dressed in the Purity of White, and prepared for symbolic marriage to the Lamb
of GOD, Messiah Yahshua.
"The Kingdom of Heaven is like a certain King (YHWH),
who made a marriage feast for His SON,
While they went away to buy, the Bridegroom (Messiah
Yahshua) came, and those who were ready went in with him to the Marriage feast,
and the door was shut.
7 Let us rejoice and be exceedingly glad, and let us give the glory to Him (YHWH).
For the Marriage of The Lamb has come, and his (The
Lambs) Wife [to be] (The
True Body of Believers) has made herself ready."
8 It was given to her that she would array herself in bright, pure, fine linen:
for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
9 He said to me, "Write, 'Blessed
are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.'" He
said to me, "These are true words of GOD."
Note: As we can plainly see Yahshua
has the symbolic role of a groom, and The True Body of Believers has the symbolic role of
a virtuous Woman. Now Let's Examine The Role of The True Body as a Woman in Marriage.
Remember: The Original Body,
Bride of Yahweh, was Israel.
Also, A Body of believers is its Congregation, and not just the leaders.
5 Now therefore, if You (My First Wife,
Israel) will indeed Obey My Voice,
and Keep My Covenant (of
marriage), then you shall be My Own Possession from
among all peoples; for all the Earth is mine;
6 and you shall be to me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation.'......."
To those who Keep His Covenant (Marriage
Vow of Obedience to YHWH's Commandments), To those who remember to Obey His
But Peter and the apostles answered, "We Must Obey GOD
Rather Than Men (or priests)." (Can
this be the same Peter that the catholic church claims to be built on? I doubt it!)
COLOSSIANS 3:18 (dual meaning)
Wives (both physical and Spiritual), be
in subjection to your husbands (both physical and
Spiritual), as is fitting in the Lord.
Note: Now we can see why "Obey" is
in All of GOD's Marriage Covenants (Vows). Additionally,
We Can See That Neither The Symbolic Wife, The True Church or any other Church, The Bride
of Christ, The Children of GOD nor for that matter any single human or collective body
of fallible humans has The authority or mandate to change The Laws, Sacred Traditions or
Holy Days of The Eternal. It Is Our Sole Duty as Future Children of Yahweh (and
bride of YHVH's Proxy, Yahshua) To Be Obedient to GOD's Laws
Through our Deep Love for our Eternal Father and to the appointed
head of the Body, Messiah
The True Congregations
The Eternal Father?
Have you ever pondered this age old question? I know I have, and when I was a young man I
didn't have very many clues. But the few clues that I did have were enough to let me
know that it could not possibly be any of the large religious organizations around
the world; I based this conclusion on several verses of scripture that I knew.
11 But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man who
didn't have on wedding-clothing,
12 and he said to him, 'Friend, how did you come in here not having wedding-clothing?'
He was speechless.
13 Then the king (YHVH) said
to the servants, 'Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and throw him into the outer darkness;
there is where the weeping and grinding of teeth will be.'
14 For many are called, but few chosen."
From this parable I was able to discern that most of the people in the world
that have ever been born OR ever will be born, regardless of religious affiliation, will
not be chosen by YHVH. Even the man, who thought
he had salvation, was left speechless at his rejection by YHVH.
Now this is not a trivial statement, because this was not a man that was of a religion
that was outside of the realm of Christianity and Judaism. How do I know this?
- This statement was written by the Apostle Matthew (not
Mohammed, etc...) in a letter (Epistle) that
was written, as instructions, to True Believers.
- Only those that either are True Believers OR think they are True Believers (according
to a Hebrew based faith) would have been at the wedding ceremony without wedding
clothes. One of the major focuses of all of the Apostolic writings was to teach the
separation of The Tares from The Wheat. Only Tares have the appearance
of Wheat, and NOT other bizarre religions. Therefore, only a Tare would have
been at the wedding supper (ceremony) in
this parable (physical to Spiritual Parallel).
It would have served no purpose to be discussing strange off the wall religions here; not
even as an informational "FYI".
Therefore, ALL "Outside the Realm" religions PLUS "The
Copy Cat" Tares are included in this non-trivial statement, AND in the following verses,
which are also from Matthew.
Matthew 7:7, 13-14
7 "Ask (YHVH),
and it will be given you. Seek (YHVH),
and you will find. Knock (YHVH's door is The Messiah),
and it will be opened to you.
13 Enter in by the narrow gate;
for wide is the gate,
and broad is the way,
that leads to destruction,
and many are those who
enter in by it.
14 How narrow is the gate, and restricted is the way that
leads to life! Few are
those who find it.
From these verses I was able to conclude that those few
who were chosen must have been able to find the true path that
leads to eternal life by seeking the truth with a selfless and open minded attitude.
However, never take anyone's word as truth, and prove
all things as to whether they are from YHVH or man.
2 Don't be fashioned according to this world, but be transformed by the
renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what
is the good and acceptable and the perfect will of YHVH.
So with these verses firmly embedded in my brain, I struck out on a journey
that would take the better part of my physical life. I was very naive in the beginning,
and made many mistakes. Some of these mistakes nearly cost me my life, but as long as my
heart was seeking YHVH, I was protected from death, but not from the consequences. However,
these consequences in my life became tribulations of knowledge and blessings.
28 We know that all things work together for the good of those who love
YHVH, to those who are called according to His purpose.
I came to understand in a very personal way that tribulations, when mixed
with true faith and love for The Creator, is not only YHVH's method of testing our faith,
but his way of strengthening it as well. Although, at the time, most of it was pretty difficult
to endure. Even so, I was assured by YHVH that He would not test anyone beyond their limits.
Notice that this benefit is for the called out ones
among mankind, because no one is positively chosen until
they actually receive the Holy Spirit or Mentality of YHVH, AND no one is absolutely begotten until
they are resurrected to eternal life at the "First Resurrection of The Dead in Messiah".
1 Corinthians 10:13
13 No temptation has taken you but such as man can bear. YHVH is faithful,
who will not allow you to be tempted above what you are able, but will with the temptation
make, also, the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
Where the True Congregations are Not...
During my Spiritual journeys I attended Presbyterian, Methodist, Holiness,
Church of Christ, Seventh Day Adventist, Catholic, Lutheran, Episcopalian, Pentecostal, various
Churches of God (including Seventh Day), The Worldwide Church of God (The Old and The
New), Assembly of God, United Christian Churches, and a dozen different Baptist Churches.
I taught Sunday School, and Sabbath School; and other than a few rituals, and some methodologies,
they were (and are) basically
all the same with few exceptions (see note below).
Most adhere to the Universal Greco-Roman "Nicene Creed".
In YHVH's eyes this makes them all prophetic Roman Christopagans. Additionally, I grew up
with a Jewish family, who had two sons that were in my age group; and so I did not miss out
on Judaism either.
So how could all of these churches be the "True Body" or
how could any one of these churches be the "True Body of Believers", as they all
claim? They couldn't ALL be the "True Body of Believers", because Scripture clearly
indicates that only a very low number (a few) of
The Called Out Ones will be Chosen. Additionally, because experience taught me that they
were consistently the same in their basic doctrines concerning salvation through Jesus Christ
and water baptism, I knew that none of them could be the "True Body of Believers," because
this would make them all divisions or members of the same false "Body" (only
much larger now) with different names, leaders, and rituals. Obviously, Church
Names, Church Leaders (human), Church
Rituals, and Church Doctrine or Creed cannot bring about
Righteousness, salvation or obedience.
Note: Not all
churches are created equal, and the above statements may not apply to all churches
on an individual church basis or according to official Church Doctrine; BUT be advised
YHVH does not "Judge" people according to official Church Doctrine; AND official
Church Doctrine is nothing more than a lie when "official Church Members" do
not observe "official Church Doctrine." Now one must ask oneself, "Is
Messiah Really GOD" or a proxy for GOD?
Just for the record, worldly priests, rabbis, pastors, reverands, and ministers do
not teach Bible Truth; they teach church doctrine!
This caused me to rethink all of the prophetic messages about the identity of
the beast religions. And all of the catholic, protestant, and nondenominational
church lessons that I had learned and doctrinally taught; and I found that all of these churches
had many common rituals that were obviously not Scriptural. For a start they all observe(d)
xmas, and easter, and many of them even allow(ed) halloween parties inside their church.
Most taught that their church had the authority to change at least
one of the Commandments of YHVH; the most prevalent being the Sabbath Day, and the "Thou
Shalt Not Murder" Commandments (as in protestant & catholic
wars, The Crusades, The Catholic Inquisition, and Catholic support of Hitler during WWII). However,
the greatest lesson I learned was that they were all legalistic and not Spiritual
in the sense that they had taken Scripture and turned various verses into a manmade or church
made "Set of Rules" to be followed "To The Letter" in order
to achieve salvation. Oh, how often I have heard the "Once Saved, Always Saved" theme,
and the ignorant interpretation of what it means to "Believe" from John
3:16. I sat through years of how important water baptism is (and
its' methodology) as a requirement for salvation, and that YHVH handed
out Grace as if it grew on trees. I walked "The Roman Road To Salvation" (Christian
Legalism) until it became a rut, and that is when I got really serious
about seeking YHVH's Truth. Don't get me wrong, YHVH's Grace is truly amazing, but
YHVH's Grace is based on Returned Love. Please try to understand, First
and foremost, we must exhibit our Love Towards YHVH through the example set by Messiah
Yahshua, then He Returns that Love in the form of Grace. Why Grace? Because
having Grace means that we have found Favor (through
following Messiah's example from the heart) in YHVH's Eyes. However,
we can either grow in Grace (Favor) OR
fall from Grace (Favor);
....... So that pretty much trashes the "Once Saved, Always Saved" theme,
especially if you think you achieved that salvation by following a set of rules. Even so,
those that seek salvation will never find it, but those that truly seek The Righteousness
of YHVH will receive everything.
between mankind and YHVH, The Creator, is not a "one way" street. We Love YHVH
because He first loved us, and when we love Him back by following Messiah's selfless
example, then He returns that love. Therefore, love begets love, and becomes a positive
21 for if YHVH didn't spare the natural branches (Hebrew), neither
will he spare you.
22 Understand the goodness and severity of YHVH. Toward those who fell, severity;
but toward you, goodness, if you continue in his goodness;
otherwise you also will be cut off (Fall
To seriously seek out YHVH's Truth, one must first seek out and find the
inconsistencies in their own beliefs and those of the various churches. The only way to
do this is by actually opening the Bible and reading it (all
of it). Now if you find any inconsistencies in the Scripture, it
can only come from two possible sources. First, your own understanding is flawed and /
or the Scripture was tampered with by scribes. It is impossible for YHVH to be inconsistent,
because YHVH is always the same (perfect and orderly),
and YHVH neither makes mistakes nor does He change His mind concerning those things that
are Good or Evil or Pre-planned by Him. On the other hand, Satan (source
of HumanNature) is the Father of lies, deception, and chaos. AND
Speaking of lies, deception, and chaos, that is exactly what I found in all of those other
churches. Could it be that all Traditional Christian professing churches were actually
deceptions of Satan?. . . I
had to find out ! And so my quest began in earnest with the only resource I had .
. . The Holy Scriptures (Tanakh or First Testament) and
the Epistles of the Apostles (Last Testament).
A really good 'Concordance' didn't hurt either.
Where the True Congregations Are...
Sometimes a verse or two of Scripture will literally jump off the pages of YHVH's
word; the following Scripture is a perfect example.
19 Again, assuredly I tell you, that if two of you will agree on Earth
concerning anything that they will ask,
it will be done for them by my Father who is in heaven.
20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there I am in the midst
Now this is a very power filled Scripture with awesome implications. Think about
it! As little as two people can constitute a true body of believers. This could simply be a
husband and his wife or a small family of three. Just because YHVH allows larger groups, does
not mean that He requires them, and this Scripture confirms it. It, also, goes "Hand
in Hand" with the fact that few will
be chosen. Could it be that our Creator is
trying to tell us something? Could it be that our Creator really doesn't expect His Congregations
to have a position of power (by worldly standards) and
an overwhelming presence in this world at this time? Could it be that YHVH has hidden
His "True Body of Believers" in a secret place where no man can find it unless
he has been made Spiritually aware of its' presence? The answer to all of these questions
O give thanks unto YHVH, for He is good: for His mercy endureth for ever.
2 Let the redeemed of YHVH say so, whom He hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;
3 And gathered them out of the lands, from the east
, and from the west, from the north , and from the south .
4 They wandered in the wilderness
in a SOLITARY WAY;
they found no city to dwell in .
5 (Spiritually) Hungry
and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.
6 Then they cried unto YHVH in their trouble, and He delivered them out of their distresses.
7 And He led them forth by the right way (Righteousness
Seeking), that they might go to a city of habitation (The
Coming Kingdom's New Jerusalem).
Awesome! YHVH is telling us through King David that His Chosen Few are a remnant that is scattered
throughout the whole world (North, South, East, and
Let us examine some more awesome Scripture.
50 Yahshua cried again with a loud voice, and yielded up his spirit (mental
51 Behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from the top to the bottom.
Why was the veil of the temple torn or split into two pieces? Prior to
Messiah Yahshua's selfless sacrifice no one could personally approach "The Mercy
Seat" in the "Holy of Holies" area
behind the veil except the High priest, and even he was only allowed to do so once a
year. Symbolically the veil separated mankind from YHVH until it was torn in two. Now with
the perfect example of Self-Sacrifice by Yahshua for our edification, any True Worshipper can
approach YHVH in prayer because the Holy Spirit is more readily attainable. In other words,
Yahshua is the only Priest and example of selfless (Righteousness
Seeking) sacrifice that we need in order to have our prayers heard.
So where is the need for a large church on every street corner? ... There
is None! So how will the message of the "Coming Kingdom on Earth", and the "Message
of Salvation" be preached for all the world to hear? .... By
"The Nature of Things", by individuals, families, friends, acquaintances, and strangers;
Just like you and me. Don't you see? YHVH's
True Congregation or "Body" lives inside each of His True Believers (Scattered
throughout the whole world).
19 Messiah Yahshua answered them, "Destroy this temple, and in three
days I will raise it up."
20 The Jews therefore said, "Forty-six years was this temple in building, and will you
raise it up in three days?"
21 But he spoke of the temple of his body.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20
19 Or don't you know that your body is
a temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you, which you have from YHVH? You are not your
20 for you were bought with a price. Therefore glorify YHVH in your body and
from your Spirit (heart
or mind), which are YHVH's.
1 Corinthians 4:10-16
10 We are fools for Yahshua's sake, but you are wise in Yahshua. We are
weak, but you are strong. You have honor, but we have dishonor.
11 Even to this present hour we hunger, thirst, are naked, are beaten, and have no
certain dwelling place.
12 We toil, working with our own hands. Being
reviled, we bless. Being
persecuted, we endure.
13 Being defamed, we entreat. We are
made as the filth of the world, the dirt wiped off by all, even until now.
14 I don't write these things to shame you, but to admonish you as my beloved children.
15 For though you have ten thousand tutors in Yahshua, yet not many fathers. For in Yahshua,
I became your father through the gospel.
16 I beg you therefore, be imitators of me (an
IMAGE or MIRROR).
It is the reasonable service of each and every one of us to become
lights unto the world and to spread the Gospel of YHVH and His first born son, Yahshua. It
is not our reasonable service to sit in an assembly all of our lives and only be receivers
of the Gospel.
21 Therefore, putting away all filthiness and overflowing of wickedness,
receive with humility the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.
22 But be doers of the word, and not only hearers, deluding
your own selves.
23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like
a man beholding his natural face in a mirror;
24 for he sees himself, and goes away, and immediately forgets what
kind of man he was.
As you can plainly see, we are
expected to become doers of the word. As doers of the word we automatically
become teachers, ministers, and evangelists. There is no need to attend one of Satan's (mankind's) seminaries,
so that we may become proficient
in the art of deception and teaching the doctrines of man. YHVH assures us
through His Word that His Sheep know His voice, and that His Holy Spirit of Love will open
our eyes and minds to the truth.
17 Learn to do well. Seek justice, Relieve the oppressed, Judge the fatherless,
Plead for the widow."
18 "Come now, and let us reason together," says YHVH: "Though
your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow. Though they be red like crimson,
they shall be as wool.
19 If you are willing and obedient,
You shall eat the good of the land;
20 But if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured with the sword;
For the mouth of YHVH (Isaiah) has
Beware of Evil Masquerading as an "Angel of Light."
