THE NEW TESTAMENT WAS ORIGINALLY WRITTEN IN HEBREW

THE NEW TESTAMENT 
WAS ORIGINALLY WRITTEN IN HEBREW
and NOT Greek or Aramaic

NT ORIGINALLY WRITTEN IN HEBREW 
…….

Are there any proofs that the original language
of the New Testament  was Hebrew, and not Greek or Aramaic?”  The answer is “Yes!  
……
There most definitely are many: 
there are both internal and external proofs.
…….

“The New Covenant’s original language was neither 
Greek nor Aramaic, as popular wisdom goes, 
but rather in Hebrew, the same Hebrew language 
that the Tanakh, the “Old Testament”, was written in.”
-Hebrew New Testament
by, Dr.  D. Briggs, Ph.D., Walden University
…….

“The New Testament WAS originally written in Hebrew.
As the following scholars agree – Bivan, Blizzard, 
Grant, Loisy, Schonefield, Trimm, Minge, Segal, Dam, 
etc. They all raise the flag regarding the New Testament
as being originally written in Hebrew and NOT Greek or
Aramaic.”
-Hebrew New Testament
by, Dr.  D. Briggs, Ph.D., Walden University

…….

“Not only is it logical that it should be Hebrew,
 since Yahushua and his disciples were from a 
Hebrew speaking country, but there are many internal 
and external proofs that reinforce this logic.”
-Hebrew New Testament
by, Dr.  D. Briggs, Ph.D., Walden University
…….

“Furthermore, Yahushua was living in Judea, 
surrounded by Jewish disciples, who had as their 
sacred text a Tanakh, written almost entirely in 
Hebrew,”  
-Hebrew New Testament
by, Dr.  D. Briggs, Ph.D., Walden University,
…….

PROOF  FOUND  WITHIN 
THE  SCRIPTURES  THEMSELVES

…….
Luke 23:38: “And a superscription also was written 
over him in letters of 
Hebrew,
 THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.”

…….

IF Yahushua and the Jews spoke ARAMAIC, as many have 
been misled to believe, why is not Aramaic listed rather than Hebrew?
After all, this sign was written for the vast majority of Israelis, 
including the common folk.  Just this single scriptural proof alone 
is overwhelmingly compelling that Hebrew was very much alive 
and still in use in Israel at that time. 
…….

“Hebrew was still very much alive during 
The Messiah’s earthly ministry and afterwards.  
Whom should one trust: man, who has attempted to 
beguile many or scripture and Yahushua Christ Himself?
And obviously Saul (later known as the Apostle Paul), 
understood Hebrew, who was educated at the feet of a
Hebrew speaking scholar.  This added proof that Hebrew 
was very active in Israel during the times of Yahushua
Christ and beyond.”
-Hebrew New Testament
by, Dr.  D. Briggs, Ph.D., Walden University 

“At Matthew 5:18: Christ said “…not a jot/”yoot” 
nor a tittle will pass…”  Both of these refer to 
the Hebrew alphabet.  Why would Yahushua Christ refer 
to Hebrew with an audience who supposedly spoke Aramaic,
and thus would not have understood Him? (obviously his
audience spoke Hebrew).”
-Hebrew New Testament
by, Dr.  D. Briggs, Ph.D., Walden University

…….
 OTHER  PROOF

…….

“Why would YHWH inspire the disciples of Christ 
to write Yahushua’s biography and teachings in a 
language that the Jews hated, and that the apostles 
could not have known, since they were all Jewish? 
Does not make sense, does it? Well, truth is, 
HE did not.”
-Hebrew New Testament
by, Dr.  D. Briggs, Ph.D., Walden University
…….

“What was the language of ordinary life of educated 
native Jews in Jerusalem and Judaea in the period 
from 400 BCE to 150 CE? The evidence presented by 
Mishnaic Hebrew and its literature leaves no doubt 
that that language was Mishnaic Hebrew.” 
– The Companion Bible,
 E. W. Bullinger, (Appendix 94)
…….

“Hebrew continued to be used as a spoken and written 
language even after the fourth century, including the 
New Testament period.”
-The Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church
 third edition, in 1997

…….
 
THE  FOUR GOSPELS
and The BOOK OF MATTHEW – 
…….
“Matthew put down the words of the Lord 
in the Hebrew language, and others have translated 
them, each as best he could.”
-Papias, bishop of Hierapolis, c. 150 A.D
…….

“Matthew, indeed, produced his Gospel written 
among the Hebrews in their own dialect.” 
– Irenaeus (120-202 A.D.) 
Bishop of Lions, France

…….

“There were debates raging concerning the 
destruction of the scrolls of the New Testament,
because they contain the divine Name of God in
Hebrew (YHWH).”  This debate clearly documents 
that the gospels were written in Hebrew in early 
church history.
-the Babylonian Talmud (Shabbat 116a), 
the Jerusalem Talmud (Shabbat 15c), 
 and the Tosefta (Shabbat 13:5).

…….

“The first Gospel composed in the Hebrew language, 
was written by Matthew…for those who came to faith 
from Judaism.”
-Origen (225 A.D.)

…….

“Matthew had first preached to the Hebrews, 
and when he was about to go to others also, 
he transmitted his Gospel in writing in his 
native language”  
– (Ecclesiastical History III 24, 6)

…….
“Matthew collected and wrote the oracles 
in the Hebrew language” 
-(Ecclesiastical History, III, 39, 16).

…….

“both the Church Fathers as well as the recently
discovered Dead Sea Scrolls state quite clearly 
and without any equivocation that Hebrew WAS the 
language spoken and written at the time of the
Messiah and his Disciples.”
-Hebrew New Testament
by, Dr.  D. Briggs, Ph.D., Walden University

…….

“the issue of the New Testament being written 
in Greek or Aramaic was non-existent prior to 
the Fourth or Fifth Century A.D.  It has been 
a rather modern theory based upon anti-semitism
which is a hatred of anything Jewish.”
-Hebrew New Testament
by, Dr.  D. Briggs, Ph.D., Walden University

THE NEW TESTAMENT AND JEHOSHUA – What is the Link?

JEHOSHUA CHRIST THE SALVATION OF JEHOVAH GOD

THE LINK BETWEEN JEHOSHUA
AND THE NEW TESTAMENT 
IS THE “HEBREW” LANGUAGE

The Hebrew – “JEHOSHUA CHRIST”
The Jewish Messiah was never called “JESUS”

The NEW TESTAMENT
which was Originally Written in Hebrew

Most of the world swears that the New Testament was
written in Greek and that Christ’s name is Jesus.
How shocked they will be to learn that neither of these
concepts is correct.

Christ was Hebrew, His name was Hebrew, his Apostles 
were Hebrew, His earliest Followers were all Hebrew,
and the first writing of the New Testament was written in
Hebrew.

In their attempt to show “Contempt” for the Jewish people,
and their Jewish God,Jehovah – the anti-semitic Greeks and
Romans sought to change everything from Hebrew into Greek,
including the New Testament and the name of Christ.  They
even removed God’s name Jehovah and renamed it by a Title,
“LORD” which is the meaning of the pagan God, “BAAL”.

Jehovah warned even his own people – The Jews for trading
worship of him for “BAAL” worship as they had learned 
from their time in Bondage in Egypt – BAAL worship
was very popular amongst worldly people.

So God became a nameless “LORD” and Christ went from 
being the Jewish Messiah with the Hebrew Name of Yehoshua
(Jehoshua) to the Greek name – “Jesus” which means,
“Hail Zeus”.  All the Greek concepts, philosophies,
holidays, dogmas and beliefs were put upon Christ and 
upon his teachings.  And so Christendom became a Greek
Religion with Greek Gods transformed into Saints as their
mediators.   The Roman hierarchy of Bishops, Cardinals, 
and popes became their religious leaders. The pagan holidays 
of Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s Day, and All Saints Day 
(Halloween), etc became their new holidays.  The pagan doctrines 
of purgatory, hellfire, The trinity, the dual godhead, holy water, 
infant baptism, immortality of the human soul, worship of the cross, 
all good people goes to heaven, Friday fish worship, and uttering “Amen”
at the end of prayers, were all added to the pure teachings of Christ
in order to corrupt them and to totally destroy the Jewish and
Hebrew truths that Christ had lived by and taught.

Bibles were banned and burned.  Correctores were hired to
rewrite and alter parts of  the Bible to comply with Greek doctrines.
and God and Christ were robbed of their Jewish names.

I have done more than 10 years of research and was very
shocked to find out all of this information, because like
most of you, all I knew what was told to me by people that
I trusted.

I welcome you to read my articles and also to do research
of your own as I have.  There are many sources still 
untapped by me – since I have only been doing this for 
10-12 years now.  Many reputable sources will support what
I have found and even give you more details than I have
shared.

It’s all very important because there is a creator who 
has promised to give reward and punishment to all of
mankind at a time known as Judgment day.  The rewards are
so great it would be a shame to miss out on them – just
because we are not interested. 

Would you buy a house,a car, without investigating it ahead of time?
Would you marry a man or a woman without getting to know
them first ?  Would you take medicine without learning the directions 
and risks first ?  Would you travel to a far away country before learning
about it’s customs and possible dangers?   Then why would you spend
your entire life without finding out what the Creator has planned
as options for the future?

I know that men have altered parts of the Bible to suit the
pagan compromises that they made  – but these
additions and alterations stick out like fake sore thumbs
when you have a basic understanding of the Bible,

 

Basically the Bible is a true story of how the first man
and woman lost their paradise, and how God has made 
plans and provisions for mankind to regain it – by 
means of, Jehoshua Christ. 

That’s why his name is Jehoshua because it means,
“The Salvation of Jehovah”.

Since as humans, our attention span is limited, that is 
why I could not possibly put 12 years of research in this 
one article, and instead I have many articles all
over the internet for people to read.

The ones listed below are just a few of the 
many subjects that may interest you or have 
something to do with what I have written here.   

I, personally do not have the key to your future, 
and all I am doing is sharing some research that I found 
that I feel is very interesting and hopefully of some value
to someone else, at some place in time.

I do thank you for taking the time to even read my quotes
and research.  I enjoyed doing it and hope you enjoy 
reading it.  Thanks Again.

NEW LIGHT ON THE BOOK OF ENOCH

ENOCHS WRITINGS WERE CONSIDERED CANON OR SCRIPTURE

 

 “Christians once accepted 
the words of this Book of Enoch
as authentic scripture…”
— The Book of the Secrets of Enoch
by R.H. Charles 

“The Book of Enoch (also known as 1 Enoch) 
was once cherished by Jews and Christians alike, 
this book later fell into disfavor with powerful
theologians – precisely because of its controversial
statements on the nature and deeds of the fallen 
angels.”
— Origen 
(Commentary in Matt. 10.18; p. 13.881) 

“So all the days of Enoch were three hundred 
and sixty-five years. [24] And Enoch walked with God; 
and he was not, for God took him.”
– (Genesis 5:24)

“By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not 
see death, “and was not found, because God had 
taken him”; for before he was taken he had this 
testimony, that he pleased God.”
– Hebrews 11:5

“Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, 
prophesied about these men…”
– Jude 1:14  

We first learn of Enoch in Genesis 5 
but it leaves us with questions. 
Hebrews 11 has the answers and 
Jude quotes Enoch!

How did Jude come to know the words of Enoch? 
They are not in the Bible. The answer of course, 
is The Book of Enoch. A book which is actually 
quoted by Jude in the New Testament.

What is the Book of Enoch and where 
did it come from? 

Enoch was the great-grandfather of Noah.

“The Book of Enoch was extant centuries before 
the birth of Christ and yet is considered by many 
to be more Christian in its theology than Jewish. 
It was considered scripture by many early Christians. 
The earliest literature of the so-called “Church 
Fathers” is filled with references to this 
mysterious book.”
— The Book of the Secrets of Enoch
by R.H. Charles 

“Second and Third Century “Church Fathers” 
like Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, Origin and Clement 
of Alexandria all make use of the Book of Enoch. 
Tertullian (160-230 C.E) even called the Book of
Enoch “Holy Scripture”. 
— The Book of the Secrets of Enoch
by R.H. Charles 

“This and many other books became discredited 
after the Council of Laodicea. And being under 
ban of the authorities, afterwards it gradually 
passed out of circulation.”
— The Book of the Secrets of Enoch
by R.H. Charles 

“with the discovery of cave 4 of the Dead Sea Scrolls, seven fragmentary copies of the Aramaic text were discovered.”
— The Book of the Secrets of Enoch
by R.H. Charles 

“The Book of Enoch is divided into five basic parts,
but it is the The Book of Parables (37-71) which 
gives scholars the most trouble for it is primarily
concerned with a figure called “the messiah”; 
“the righteous one”; “the chosen one” and “the son 
of man.” 
— The Book of the Secrets of Enoch
by R.H. Charles  

“The Book of Enoch Chapter 46:1-2 [1] 
‘There I beheld the Ancient of days 
whose head was like white wool, and with 
him another, whose countenance resembled 
that of a man. His countenance was full of 
grace, like that of one of the holy angels. 
Then I inquired of one of the angels, who 
went with me, and who showed me every secret 
thing, concerning this Son of man; who he was;
whence he was; and why he accompanied the 
Ancient of days. [2] He answered and said to me, 
This is the Son of man, to whom righteousness 
belongs; with whom righteousness has dwealt; 
and who will reveal all the treasures of that 
which is concealed: for the Lord of spirits 
has chosen him; and his portion has surpassed 
all before the Lord of spirits in everlasting 
uprightness.” 
— The Book of the Secrets of Enoch
by R.H. Charles

(Compare the above to Daniel 7:13,14 amd Dam 2:44) 

“The materials in I Enoch range in date from 
200 B.C.E. to 50 C.E. I Enoch contributes much 
to intertestamental views of angels, heaven, 
judgment, resurrection, and the Messiah. 
This book has left its stamp upon many of 
the NT writers, especially the author of 
Revelation.”
– Craig A. Evans, 
Noncanonical Writings 
and New Testament Interpretation, 
(1992) p. 23  

“James Bruce changed all this by procuring 
several copies of the missing work during his 
stay in Ethiopia. These were the first complete 
editions of the Book of Enoch ever to be seen 
in Europe.”
– Graham Hancock,
 The Sign and the Seal  

“The Book of Enoch remained in darkness until 1821, 
when the long years of dedicated work by a professor 
of Hebrew at the University of Oxford were finally
rewarded with the publication of the first ever 
English translation of the Book of Enoch. 
The Reverend Richard Laurence, Archbishop of Cashel, 
had labored for many hundreds of hours over the 
faded manuscript in the hands of the Bodleian Library, 
carefully substituting English words and expressions 
for the original Geez, while comparing the results
with known extracts, such as the few brief chapters
preserved in Greek by Syncellus during the ninth 
century.” 
– Andrew Collins,
 From the Ashes of Angels – 
The Forbidden Legacy of a Fallen Race
 (1996) p. 21 

“The original Aramaic version was lost until
the Dead Sea fragments were discovered.”
— The Book of the Secrets of Enoch
by R.H. Charles 

“The original language of most of this work was, 
in all likelihood, Aramaic (an early Semitic language).
Although the original version was lost in antiquity,
portions of a Greek translation were discovered 
in Egypt and quotations were known from the Church
Fathers. The discovery of the texts from Qumran 
Cave 4 has finally provided parts of the Aramaic
original. …Humankind is called on to observe 
how unchanging nature follows God’s will.”
– Milik, Jazef. T., ed. 
The Books of Enoch:
Aramaic Fragments of Qumran Cave 4  

“The Aramaic Book of Enoch…very considerably 
influenced the idiom of the New Testament and 
patristic literature, more so in fact than any 
other writing…”
– Norman Golb, 
Who Wrote the Dead Sea Scrolls?, 
(1995) p. 366 

“As it now stands, I Enoch appears to consist 
of the following five major divisions:
    (1) The Book of the Watchers (chaps. 1-36);
    (2) The Book of the Similitudes (chaps. 37-7l)-,
    (3) The Book of Astronomical Writings (chaps. 72-82);
    (4) The Book of Dream Visions (chaps. 83-90); and
    (5) The Book of the Epistle of Enoch (chaps. 91-107).”— Craig A. Evans, 
Noncanonical Writings 
and New Testament Interpretation, 
(1992) p. 23  

“Although the Book of Enoch is considered 
as apocryphal, it was clearly known to early 
Christian writers”
— The Book of the Secrets of Enoch
by R.H. Charles 

“The theme of the Book of Enoch deals with the
nature and deeds of the fallen angels. It was
so infuriated to the later Church fathers that 
one, Filastrius, actually condemned it openly 
as heresy.”
— (Filastrius, 
Liber de Haeresibus, no. 108). 

“Nor did the rabbis deign to give credence 
to the book’s teaching about angels. 
Rabbi Simeon ben Jochai in the second century A.D. 
pronounced a curse upon those who believed it 
(the Book of Enoch).”
— (Delitzsch, p. 223). 

“So the book was denounced, banned, cursed, 
no doubt it was burned and shredded – and last 
but not least, lost (and conveniently forgotten) 
for a thousand years. But with an uncanny 
persistence, the Book of Enoch found its way 
back into circulation two centuries ago.”
— The Book of the Secrets of Enoch
by R.H. Charles 

” the Book of Enoch had been preserved by the 
Ethiopic church, which put it right alongside 
the other books of the Bible. Bruce secured not 
one, but three Ethiopic copies of the book and 
brought them back to Europe and Britain. 
When in 1821 Dr. Richard Laurence, a Hebrew
professor at Oxford, produced the first English
translation of the work, the modern world gained 
its first glimpse of the forbidden mysteries 
of Enoch.”
— The Book of the Secrets of Enoch
by R.H. Charles 

“recent discoveries of copies of the book 
among the Dead Sea Scrolls found at Qumran 
prove that the book was in existence before 
the time of Jesus Christ.” 
— The Book of the Secrets of Enoch 
by R.H. Charles 

Jesus (Jehoshua) Christ’s Viewpoint
of The Book of Enoch

“Despite its unknown origins, Christians once 
accepted the words of this Book of Enoch as 
authentic scripture, especially the part about 
the fallen angels and their prophesied judgment. 
In fact, many of the key concepts used by Jesus 
Christ himself seem directly connected to terms 
and ideas in the Book of Enoch.  Thus, it is hard 
to avoid the  conclusion that Jesus had not only 
studied the book, but also respected it highly 
enough to adopt and elaborate on its specific 
descriptions of the coming kingdom and its theme 
of inevitable judgment descending upon “the wicked”.
— The Book of the Secrets of Enoch
by R.H. Charles  

“There is abundant proof that Christ approved 
of the Book of Enoch. Over a hundred phrases 
in the New Testament find precedents in the 
Book of Enoch.  Another remarkable bit of 
evidence for the early Christians’ acceptance 
of the Book of Enoch was for many years buried 
under the King James Bible’s mistranslation of 
Luke 9:35, describing the transfiguration of 
Christ: “And there came a voice out of the cloud,
saying, ‘This is my beloved Son: hear him.” 
Apparently the translator here wished to make 
this verse agree with a similar verse in Matthew 
and Mark. But Luke’s verse in the original Greek
reads: “This is my Son, the Elect One (from the
Greek ho eklelegmenos, lit., “the elect one”): 
hear him. (ot listen to him).” 
— The Book of the Secrets of Enoch
by R.H. Charles 

“The “Elect One” is a most significant term 
(found fourteen times) in the Book of Enoch.  
If the book was indeed known to the apostles 
of Christ, with its abundant descriptions of 
the Elect One who should “sit upon the throne 
of glory” and the Elect One who should “dwell 
in the midst of them,” then the great scriptural
authenticity is accorded to the Book of Enoch 
when the “voice out of the cloud” tells the 
apostles, “This is my Son, the Elect One” –
the one promised in the Book of Enoch.”
— The Book of the Secrets of Enoch
by R.H. Charles  

“The time difference between Enoch and Jude 
is approximately 3400 years. Therefore, Jude’s 
reference to the Enochian prophesies strongly 
leans toward the conclusion that these written 
prophesies were available to him at that time.”
— The Book of the Secrets of Enoch
by R.H. Charles 

THE EARLY CHURCH FATHERS SUPPORTED 
THE AUTHORITY OF ENOCH WRITINGS

“Many of the early church fathers also supported 
the Enochian writings. Justin Martyr ascribed all 
evil to demons whom he alleged to be the offspring 
of the angels who fell through lust for women —
directly referencing the Enochian writings.”
— The Book of the Secrets of Enoch
by R.H. Charles 

“Athenagoras, writing in his work called Legatio 
in about 170 A.D., regards Enoch as a true prophet. 
He describes the angels which “violated both their 
own nature and their office.”  In his writings, 
he goes into detail about the nature of fallen 
angels and the cause of their fall, which comes 
directly from the Enochian writings.”
— The Book of the Secrets of Enoch
by R.H. Charles 

“Many other church fathers: Tatian (110-172); 
Irenaeus, Bishop of Lyons (115-185); 
Clement of Alexandria (150-220); 
Tertullian (160-230); Origen (186-255); 
Lactantius (260-330); in addition to: 
Methodius of Philippi, Minucius Felix, 
Commodianus, and Ambrose of Milanalso-
also approved of and supported the Enochian 
writings.”
— The Book of the Secrets of Enoch
by R.H. Charles 

DISCOVERY OF DEAD SEA SCROLLS

“The twentieth-century discovery of several Aramaic
Enochian texts among the Dead Sea Scrolls prompted 
Catholic scholar J.T. Milik to compile a complete

CHRIST NEVER HEARD HIMSELF CALLED “JESUS”

 

JEHOSHUA CHRIST W RED

CHRIST  NEVER  HEARD  HIMSELF  CALLED  “JESUS”

No one ever called Christ by the name of “Jesus” during his
earthly life.  As a Hebrew, he was referred to as “Yehoshua”
by his 12 Jewish disciples.   But Rome would not have anything
to do with it.  After the apostles left the earthly scene, Rome
adopted the religion of Christ and made sharp changes, not
only to Christ’s teachings, but even to his name.  Constantine
and the entire Roman Church Counsels – altered and changed
Christ’s name into something more Greek than Jewish; and
they even burned books that contained Christ’s original true
name.   All of these changes were in the interest of the large
pagan population in Greece and Rome at that time.

THE  EVIDENCE – 

“Originally, the name of the Messiah was , pronounced Yehoshua. 
This is the Messiah’s original name, and meant ‘Jehovah is salvation’. 
It is quite evident that the modern form “Jesus” does not even remotely 
resemble the original name that the disciples used.. This is fact. ”

“The issue IS how to transliterate the real name,

Latin and then from Latin into English. Why would 
anyone want to take such a circuitous route,

the erroneousness,”Jesus?”

  THE ORIGIN OF CHRISTIANITY
  By A. B. Traina

————–

WILL GOD’S PEOPLE BE STUMBLED BY THE NAME OF JEHOSHUA?

 

STUMBLING OVER THE NAME OF JEHOSHUA

“If people can’t see what God is doing,
they stumble all over themselves;
But when they attend to what he reveals,
they are most blessed.”
(Proverbs 29:18)(MSG)-BibleGateway

WILL  GOD’S  PEOPLE  BE  STUMBLED
BY  THE  NAME  OF  JEHOSHUA?

The sudden realization that Christ’s true name
was never “Jesus”, but rather Jehoshua, has
been shocking to learn.  Some will welcome this
truth, while others will become angry and be
stumbled by it.  How so ?

Humans are creatures of habit, and while some get
bored easily and constantly look for new gadgets
to amuse them, there are many who do not like change.
The Messiah has been called “Jesus” ever since the
Roman’s took over Christianity as a state religion.
That’s a long time.  So much has been said and done
in the name of “Jesus”, that to call him anything but
that – will appear as sacrilege in the eyes of many.

But that doesn’t change the fact that “Jesus” never
was his name.  Christ was never called by that name
while he was alive on this earth.  His Jewish
Apostles never called him that, and the earliest of
Christians never called him that.  It was only the
Greek-speaking apostates, who changed his name to
suit their pagan appetites for a god-man with
3 heads to suit their trinity tradition of pagan
worship.  And along with all these changes, was
a complete destruction of Christ’s Jewish heritage
and his Jewish name – which translates directly
into English as did his Father’s name.

Since Jehovah’s Salvation – called “Jehoshua” is
what Christ wants to be called, we should take his
request very seriously.  It is not a matter of
holding onto tradition, or a matter of pleasing
those who find the erroneous name “Jesus” to be so
dear to their heart.  No, it is a matter of “TRUTH”.
Jehoshua came to the earth to bring mankind back
to truth.  NOT to be molded into a god that mankind
thinks he should be.  Jehoshua was sent by Jehovah
God, to bring mankind back to him.  Christ had an
objective of turning the Israel of God back to
truth again.

The Jews had strayed away from Jehovah and replaced
his name with “LORD”.  They had traded God’s commands
for the “traditions” of men.  Christ condemned them
for doing that.  How much more so will Christ condemn
those who have abandoned his truths, for the pagan
traditions of Christmas and Easter which involve
numerous sun-gods and fertility goddess worship.
But worse yet, the trading of Christ’s true name for
a Graeco-Roman god named “Zeus”.  It is not by sheer
accident that Christ’s name sounds like “G-Zeus”.
It was intended that way.  History books admit that
the Romans intentionally traded the true name of
“Jehoshua” for the “Iesous” (hail zeus) of pagan
origin and pagan appeal.

Rome has never been interested in truth.  Her form of
the gospel was to spread Christianity by brutal force,
which is something that Christ would never have
agreed to.  The Holy Roman Empire used Christ as her
battle cry – to murder, rape, torture, and destroy
the objects of her mass conversions in their newly
created quasi-pagan form of Christianity.

No wonder that Christ predicted that in the last days
that many would cry out to him during Judgment –
“Didn’t we do so many powerful works in your name?”
and he will say in return to them – “Get away from
me – the things you did were not authorized by me –
you workers of evil.”  Not only would they be doing
things that Christ would not approve of – but they
would even be doing them in a name that he never
heard of.

Yes, in the name of their conjured god “Jesus”,
which means to hail-zeus,  they would be doing
bloody horrible deeds and trying to give Christ
the credit for it.  His reaction will be to reject
them, reject their deeds, and reject the unholy name
that they have glued upon him.

So will God’s true people follow in this erroneous
path of calling the Messiah by a most dishonoring
name?  When faced in these last days, with the
importance of using Christ’s true name – will they
be stumbled ?  Those who agree to return to Christ’s
name, Jehoshua, will be marked by God as wheat-like
christians;  while those who refuse to return to
Christ and his true name, will be marked as weed-like
ones that will be uprooted and destroyed in the
coming harvest.  The scriptures testify to this fact.

Just as God’s people returned to Jehovah and returned
to using his Name – so too,  God’s people must
return to the Messiah and his true name.

Will you be stumbled at this ?
I hope not.

RESEARCHING OUTSIDE OF THE BIBLE – IS IT SAFE?

WILL RESEARCHING SHIP-WRECK YOUR FAITH?

 WILL RESEARCH SHIPWRECK YOUR FAITH

“MAKE  SURE  OF  ALL  THINGS
HOLD  FAST  TO  WHAT  IS  FINE.”
(1 Thessalonians 5:21)

Jehovah’s people have used encyclopedias, secular sources,
and reputable books and documents – to discover the pagan
origins of Christmas, Easter, Hell Fire Torment,  Infant
Baptism, the true origins of the cross as a phallic symbol
of sex worship, the mistranslation of Stauros and Xylon,
the pagan origins of Rosary beads, pagan origins of holy water.

Secular research has also helped Jehovah’s people to recognize
spurious scriptures that were added after the Bible was written.
When noting that the word “trinity” did not exist in the Bible,
God’s people turned to secular sources outside of the Bible to
investigate and find that the trinity and many other unbiblical
doctrines were adopted from the pagans by Rome and engrafted
upon the Christian Faith without any approval by God or his
Holy spirit.  The list goes on and on – with all the many things
that Jehovah’s people have learned from sources outside of the
Bible – in their search of truth.

Therefore we should not be afraid to do research outside of the
Bible.   There are still many other things to be found, by doing so,
that Jehovah’s people have yet to learn.  To stop researching our
Faith would be a big mistake.   If we have “THE TRUTH” than
there is nothing to fear from such investigations.  If anything, our
research should do nothing, except to strengthen our faith and in
some cases to bring us to the realization that some of our views
are outdated or wrong and that gives us the opportunity to investigate
further and update our beliefs and doctrines.

To turn a deaf ear to newly found Truth is not only foolish, but
shows an excess of pride that we are not willing to admit that we
can make mistakes, and do need occasionally adjustments.

Pride is before the fall – but being humble and flexible are valuable
traits in the sight of God.

“Don’t suppress the Spirit,
and don’t stifle those who have
a word from the Master.
 On the
other hand, don’t be gullible.
Check out everything, and keep
only what’s good.”
(1Thess 5:19-22)(MSG)
-BibleGateway

I was recently told that Jehovah’s people
do not do any research outside of the Bible.
I was also told that it was wrong to do any
research myself – outside of the Bible in
connection with my religious beliefs.

MAKE SURE OF ALL THINGS

The Boreans were complimented by
Paul for examining the scriptures daily
to make sure that what they were learning
from the apostles, was actually true.
They only had the Old Testament
(Hebrew Scriptures) at that time.
The Boreans were called “Noble” minded
because of their research.

“Now the Berean Jews were of more
noble character than those in Thessalonica,
for they received the message with great
eagerness and examined the Scriptures
every day to see if what Paul said was
true.”
(Acts 17:11)(NIV)-BibleGateway

We find in the Dictionary the definition
of “Noble” minded.

Noble-minded people are people who are open,
people who are searching, who don’t assume that
they already know everything. Noble-minded,
yes, but not gullible.”

What part does research play in our belief
system ?  Should we be leery or afraid of
research ?  Is it wrong to research outside
of the Bible in our pursuit of spiritual
truth?

There are many things that we have changed in
our belief system because of research done
outside of the Bible.  And what are these ?

There are several good examples.
At one time we celebrated Christmas and
Easter and bowed down before a cross.
We no longer do that due to research done
outside of the Bible.

Many once believed that Jesus died on a cross
because the bible used the word “cross” when
translating “stauros” and “xylon”.  Yet due
to research outside of the Bible, we came
to realize that the word “stake” was a more
accurate translation of those two words that
literally mean “wood”, “tree”, or upright
pole or pale.  We then began to realize that
Christ was impaled on a stake and not crucified
on a cross.  History books outside of the
Bible offered even more support to this evidence.

We did not learn that Christmas and Easter were
pagan holidays from the Bible.  Instead we learned
of their pagan origins and pagan practices by
doing research outside of the Bible.

Hellfire torment is another belief that has been
rejected by Jehovah’s people because of
research done by them in secular sources.

Many Bible use the word “hell” in translating
the word “Gehenna” mentioned in the Bible.
The Bible speaks of Gehenna as a place where
the fire never goes out – a place of eternal torment.
But upon researching the word “Gehenna” we
find that it was a place in Christ’s day where
garbage and refuse was burned.  Even human
bodies of dead  criminals were disposed of
there.  The fires of Gehenna were kept burning
day and night.  Christ used this ‘Gehenna’ as an
analogy of the complete and utter destruction of
the wicked on Judgment Day.

On the other hand we learned about “hades” and
“sheol” which are used in the Bible in conjunction
with burial of the dead.  Through research outside
of the Bible we found that these two words mean
“to cover over” or to “conceal”.

Christ rested in “hades” for 3 days before he was
resurrected.  The faithful man “Job” prayed to die
and go to sheol where he could rest and escape
from his pain.

So we see that our research outside of the Bible
has helped in our understanding of the scriptures.
It helped us to see that the belief in HellFire
Torment came from the pagans and was adopted
by the Roman Church during her days of Apostasy
and quest to rule the world.

There are many other religious beliefs
(too numerous to mention here) that have
been enhanced by doing research outside
of the Bible.   Such research improves
our insight into the Scriptures.

So, yes, research outside of the Bible is very
helpful in helping us to understand the Bible better
and in supporting our unending faith in Jehovah
God .

Also, since “Correctores” were hired by the
Apostate Roman Church in order to rewrite
certain areas of the Bible to support their newly
adopted beliefs, we realize even more so,
our need to do research outside of the Bible
in order to discern those spurious scriptures
that have crept their way into the Bible over
the years.   A good example of this was their
removal of God’s Name “Jehovah” from the
Bible in almost seven thousand places.  Also
their changing the word “Passover” to the
word “Easter” in honor of the Fertility goddess
named “Easter” or “Ashtoreth”.   They even
changed many scriptures to support their
trinity god by making sly changes like
“the son of God” to “God, the son”.

Anyone who has ever read a Watchtower or
Awake magazine is well aware of the fact that
Jehovah’s people do use research outside of the
Bible in writing their articles.  They even quote
the sources of their findings for the whole world
to see.

So the research that we do outside of our Bibles,
in conjunction with a sound mind, and deep respect
for the Bible and for Jehovah, can be of real value
