Those who have a true love for the Messiah, should “EARNESTLY content for the faith which was ONCE delivered unto the set-apart people” as said by the disciple Yahudah (Jude) 1: 3 Was our faith labelled “Christianity”? Perhaps drinking of the wine of her fonication? THEREFORE, we better get high up above our preconceived ideas of the faith and examine it objectively. We better examine the faith in the context of the time of the Hebrew Messiah YaHUShA and His disciples!
The true sect that followed YaHUShA’s teachings did use a term for themselves, and it was NATSARIM (Acts 24:5). The Natsarim were very specific in their labelling of themselves, since their label referred to the One they were followers of, YaHUShA of Natsarith. Never did they referred to themselves as “Christians”! I am glad you asked ‘but what about my Translation in Acts 11:26; 26:28 or 1 Peter 4:16?’ Translators used the word “Christian” in these three verses in the New Testament Scriptures – a SUBSTITUTE word in place of accurate translations! And inconsistant with the rest of the Scriptures. It was deliberately done to justify their means and this I will explain in “Christianity PART 3”, but first, let us look at what Scripture (a defence for itself) have to say about the true children of ELaHYM and what they will label themselves.
While Sha’ul was arrested and taken to Rome, he was kept in the home of a centurion. He called for the chief Yahudim, and they had heard of this “sect“, and said to Sha’ul,
“But we desire to hear from you, what you think: for as concerning this sect, we know that everywhere it is spoken AGAINST.”Ma’asei (Acts) 28:22
When Sha’ul was arrested, a lawyer made accusations against him before Felix. Part of that dialog describes the “sect” which Sha’ul was a member of:
“He is a ringleader of the Nazarene sect, and even tried to desecrate the Temple; so we seized him.” Ma’asei (Acts) 24:5
Clearly within Scripture, Sha’ul was not a ring leader of the sect of Christians, but rather the Natsarim (Acts 24: 5) Consistent with the rest of the Scriptures (both old and New Testament) because “Natsarim” means “watchmen” and “branches”. A BRANCH of the olive tree! But who exactly is the olive tree?
“YaHUaH called your name a GREEN OLIVE TREE, fair and of goodly fruit; with the noise of a great tumult he has kindled fire upon, and THE BRANCHES OF IT ARE BROKEN.” Who is this green olive tree who has broken branches? The answer is given in the following verse (verse 17) “For YaHUaH of hosts WHO PLANTED YOU has pronounced evil against YOU for the evil OF THE (((HOUSE OF YShREL ((AND)) OF THE HOUSE OF YAHUDAH)))”Yirmeyahu (Jeremiah) 11: 16,17
The “house of YShREL” represents the Northern Kingdom and the “house of Yahudah” represents the Southern Kingdom together called the “house of Ya’aqob”! In other words we are all supposed to be Natsarim “watchmen” for YShREL or the “house of Ya’aqob” referring to the same sheep fold! Not only a watchmen but also a BRANCH of the house of Ya’aqob! (see Romans 11)
The word found for watchmen at Yermeyahu 31 is the word Natsarim! Like “branch” being from Netzer or Tzemach, spoken by the prophets that YaHUShA shall be called a Nazarene (Mattithyahu [Matthew] 2: 23) and we’re He’s followers. Mattithyahu (Matthew) wrote that “YaHUShA came and dwelth in a village called Nazareth that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet(s) (Yermeyahu [Jeremiah] 33: 15; Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 4: 2-4; Zechariah 6: 12; 3:8), He shall be called a Nazarene” and so it was Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 11: 1 who prophesied and said: “And there shall come forth a rod (choter – living shoot) out of the stem (Geze – cut down trunk) of Jesse (King David’s father) and a BRANCH (((NETZER))) shall grow out of his roots.” And so Yeshayahu tells us that the BRANCH is a PARTICULAR type of Tsemach and a NETZER is a shoot growing out of the original root system of an olive tree which is YShREL, the “house of Ya’aqob”!
It is also important to note that Messiah will only reign over the house of Ya’aqob, and of THIS reign there shall be no end! (see Luqas 1: 33) Scripture do not say He will reign over the house of Christianity and there is no Scriptural basis to prove that Christianity is part of the house of Ya’aqob! Furthermore, I would like to remind you that there are only twelve gates in the New Yerushalayim for the twelve tribes of YShREL (the house of Ya’aqob) NOT a thirteenth one for Christianity,… through which gate will you enter? Sha’ul did NOT say that we were once without Messiah, excluded from the citizenship of Christianity – NO! But clearly said, “excluded from the CITIZENSHIP OF YShREL”!!! Ephsiyim (Ephesians) 2: 12
And in the context of Scripture in reference to the true sons of ELaHYM “whom I [YaHUaH] have chosen”, it says, “One says ‘I BELONG TO YaHUaH; another calls himself BY THE NAME OF YA’AQOB”; another writes with his hand, “unto YaHUaH”, and names himself BY THE NAME OF YShREL” Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 44: 5 Scripture clearly is a defence for itself! Can’t find the word “Christian” any ware in the Scripture [The Torah, the Prophet, and the Writings] and “Christ” derived from “Chrestos” that has falsely come to mean “anointed”, but actually, Osiris and Mithras were both called “Chreistos”, which meant “good”, Therefore, I do not call myself Christian “Chreistos”, which meant “good”, for Messiah said, “No one is good except One ELaHYM.”Mattiyahu 19: 17 But I do however label myself as a NATSARIM (BRANCH) of the “house of Ya’aqob” which means, I will NAME myself BY THE NAME OF YShREL!
Remember YaHUShA said, “I am the vine, you are the BRANCHES [Natzarim]” Yochanan [John] 15: 5
It is also interesting to note Messiah’s words in Luqas 22: 25, where He said, “These sovereigns of the nations rule over them, and those who control them (“Nicolaitanes”) are called ‘workers of GOOD’.
± 150 years later, that same hierarchical ruling class (“Nicolaitanes”) such as Justin Martyr said that “Christians” were “Chrestoi“, or “good men“. Clement of Alexandria said “all who believe in Christ (CHRESTOS MITHRAS) are called “Chrestoi, that is ‘good men'”. The word was adopted from gnostic Paganism: The inscription “CHRESTOS” can be seen on a Mithras relief in the Vatican, with the words CHRESTOS MITHRAS, meaning “good Mithras”.
Now closely consider the words of Yahudah (Jude) 1:3 once again: “EARNESTLY content for the FAITH which was (((once))) DELIVERED unto the set-apart people” Now in the context of time in which Yahudah made this remark he was referring back to Mosheh, David, Samuel, the “set apart people” NOT your modern day mother who taught you A “faith” she called “Christianity”. He went on to say, “which was once delivered”, so what was delivered unto Mosheh, David, Samuel the “set apart people? THE TORAH! – That was the “faith” which was once delivered! You had better come to the “faith” of YShREL referring to the Torah (Revelation 21:12) or you will remain OUTSIDE (Marqos 4: 11-12) and be labelled a “dog” as mentioned in Revelation 22:15. The set apart people never refer to themselves as “Christians” but call themselves “by the name of Ya’aqob” and named themselves “by the name of YShREL”!!!(Yshayahu (Isaiah) 44: 5) AND WE STILL DO!!!
