Yirmeyahu 31:6 used the word NATSARIM which is translated “watchmen“, who will CRY on “Mount Ephraim” and say “Arise, let us go up to Tsiyon (Zion) to YaHUaH our ELaHYM”. Since we had come to learn that we are suppose to see ourselves as part of these BRANCHES, we had better understand our responsibility as “watchmen” for the “house of Ya’aqob”. Notice it says “on Mount Ephraim”, but since Ephraim is amongst the Nations, it is alluding to all the high places amongst Ephraim across the globe where we will CRY out and say “let us go up (return) to Tsiyon (Zion) to YaHUaH our ELaHYM.”
In YehezqEL chapter 8 & 9 the same word terminology are used by those who “CRY out against the abominations” and were spared for doing so, yet today there are those NATSARIM (“watchmen”/”branches”) who is CRYING out against the abominations and say “let us go up (return) to Tsiyon (Zion) to YaHUaH our ELaHYM, AND LEAVE BEHIND THE ABOMINATIONS, the “great apostasy” called Christianity and “EARNESTLY content for the faith which was ONCE delivered unto the set-apart people”! Let’s return to the Covenant, and repair the breach (Yeshayahu 58: 12) shall we?
Perhaps you would STILL like to pose the question, “Are you to tell me, that Christianity have it’s Roots in Paganism?” The answer is, “Absolutely, Most assuredly, Yes! And Sha’ul who said, “and if the ROOT is set-apart so are the branches” Romiyim (Romans) 11: 16 IN THE CASE OF CHRISTIANITY IT’S NOT! “Her” BRANCHES is polluted and so far removed from the VINE (Yochanan [John] 15: 5) as can be! “Her” origination started with the “Catechetical School of Alexandria, Egypt over several hundred years, beginning in about 190 CE long after the true faith was delivered unto the set apart people! The head and founder of this first school of Christianity was Pantaenus, and over time other men became the headmasters, such as Clement, Origen, Epiphanius, Tertullian, Augustine, and so on. These are called the “fathers” of the “church”, and yet in their writings they describe a sect called THE NATSARIM. These “fathers” even called the Natsarim “heretics” because the Natsarim was still obeying the appointed times and Torah (law)”(Dani’El 7: 25) and would not obey their man made religious system or hierarchical ruling class. From this School of Alexandria, “bishops” were spawned who promoted doctrinal control, and these “Nicolaitanes”(see Revelations 2: 6) propagated a hierarchical ruling class that controlled all teachings. The Natzarim sect called “heretics” later became to be “protestants” who was protesting (CRY out against the abominations) against this hierarchical ruling class.
Many people praise these so called “fathers” of the “church”, ignorant of their writings in which they describe the true followers of Messiah “heretics”, and rightly did the author of Ma’asei (Acts) 28: 22 captured the words when he said, “concerning this sect, we know that it is spoken evil against everywhere”. The Nazarenes were hated by both the “church” and Pharisaic Yahudim’s. For example, the fourth century “church father” Jerome, described the Nazarenes as “those who accept Messiah in such a way that they do not cease to observe the Old Law” (Jerome; On. Is. 8:14). Another fourth century “church Father”, Epiphanius, gave a more detailed description of how the Natzarim were viewed:
“We shall now especially consider heretics who… call themselves Nazarenes; they are mainly Jews[Yahudim] and nothing else. They make use not only of the New Testament, but they also use in a way the Old Testament of the Jews[Yahudim’s]; for they do not forbid the books of the Law[Torah], the Prophets, and the Writings… so that they are approved of by the Jews[Yahudim’s], from whom the Nazarenes do not differ in anything, and they profess all the dogmas pertaining to the prescriptions of the Law[Torah] and to the customs of the Jews[Yahudim’s], EXCEPT THEY BELIEVE IN [MESSIAH]… They preach that there is but one [ELaHYM], and his son [YaHUShA the Messiah]. But they are very learned in the Hebrew language; for they, like the Jews[Yahudim’s], read the whole Law[Torah], then the Prophets…They differ from the Jews[Yahudim’s] because they believe in Messiah, and from the Christians in that they are to this day bound to the Jewish rites, such as circumcision, the Sabbath, and other ceremonies.” (Epiphanius; Panarion 29; translated from the Greek).
These words from Epiphanius seems to strenghten the words of Sha’ul concerning himself as the “ringleader of the Nazarene sect”, when he is giving his personal testimony by saying, “And this I confess to you, that according to the Way which they call a sect, so I worship the ELaHYM of my fathers, BELIEVING ALL THAT HAS BEEN WRITTEN IN THE TORAH AND THE PROPHETS” Acts 24:14
There is definitely more to learn in Christianity PART 3, where I explain how “The earth were made drunk with the wine of her whoring” Hazon [Revelations] 18:23 (the actual transition) and the VERY REASON WHY we better “EARNESTLY contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the set-apart people”! Sha’ul who said, “some HAVE ALREADY embraced another Besorah” (Galatiyim [Galations] 1: 6-7) yet I would like to suggest that some HAVE only grown up under a good news ALREADY CHANGED!
There are possible so-called “related posts” (automatically generated by wordpress) that will appear on the bottom end of my blog posts which are by no means related to my work or stance!!! If I hadn’t bring the Good News voluntarily, (1 Cor 9:16) I would’ve been entrusted with a management and would’ve had the responsibility of removing such adds from my blog for $29.97
Just ignore them or else support me with $29.97 so that I may remove them.
