NATSARIYM or CHRISTIAN?!!

Updated: Mar 25

Let there be light (יהי אור) ~ ihi or ... Fiat Lux

Who are the Natsariym?!


Seek ye YAHAWAH while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:

... YESHA'YAHU (ISAIAH) 55:6

Thus says YAHAWAH, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the ancient paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.

... YIRMEYAHU (JEREMIAH) 6:16

But seek ye first the Kingdom of YAHAWAH, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

... MATTITHYAHU (MATTHEW) 6:33


I am the Vine, ye are the Natsariym. He that abides in me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit for without me ye can do nothing. ...YAHUCHANON (JOHN) 15:5

MASHIACH is the vine and we are the branches or Natsariym/Netseriym. He is our living source, and so He wants us to know the truth to free us from bondage and our burdens hence He tells us:


Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

... MATTITHYAHU (MATTHEW) 11: 28 - 30

But to partake, 1st, I must ask you ... "Are you truly in the Faith? Are you really?!"


Please!! Examine yourself to be sure ... 2 Corinthians 13 vs 5 1 Corinthians 11 vs 28 Psalms 119 vs 59 Lamentations 3 vs 40 Haggai 1 vs 5 Also: 1 John 1 vs 6 1 John 2 vs 3 - 6 1 John 4 vs 20 ... actually read through all of 1 John to test and examine yourself. Read the following as well ... John 13 vs 35

John 14 vs 15 Confess the Truth!! Profess the Good News!! Proclaim the Gospel and acknowledge MASHIACH to all men (Luke 12 vs 8) ... be ready always to give an answer to every man that asks you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: (1 PETER 3:15) and Always contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the Saints!! (Jude 3 - 4) What faith?!


Belief in MASHIACH ... that He suffered and died for the sins of the world, that He was buried and that He rose again after 3 days in the tomb. That He has ascended into Heaven and is seated at the Right Hand of ABBA YAHAWAH in Heaven. That He will return to judge the world ... both the living and the dead.


And this is life eternal, that they might know you the only true Elohiym, and Yahusha Ha'Mashiach, whom you have sent. (JOHN 17:3) *** For those who are truly in the faith ... We are not of this world ... John 17 vs 14 - 16: 2 Corinthians 6 vs 17: Phillipians 3 vs 20 - 21: James 4 vs 4:

***


So who are the Natsariym? To start, we shall look at some Hebrew root words: Rod/Branch : Choter/Natser [חטר/נצר] The word 'Branch' in the Scriptures, which depicts or derives an accurate translation of the Hebrew word Natsariym/Netseriym, are used as references for 'Branch' or 'Branches' as can be seen in these verses: Matthew 24 vs 32 - 34 Mark 4 vs 26 - 32 Both of these scripture verses above are connected in some way to Zechariah 3 vs 10 References to HA'MASHIACH (The CHRIST) : Zechariah 3 vs 8: Hear now, O Yahusha the high priest, you, and your fellows that sit before you: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant the BRANCH. Zechariah 6 vs 12: And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaks YAHAWAH TSEVA'OTH, saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build  the Temple of YAHAWAH MOSHIACH/MASHIACH (CHRIST) is the Branch ... The word used here for Branch is Tsemach/Zemach (this particular reference seem to point to the actual name that HA'MASHIACH would be called by when he is born ... YAHAWAHSHAH/YEHOSHUAH) ---------- Hebrew root words for Natsariym ...

nazir/naziyr= nun, zayin, yod, resh  (נזיר) natsar/netser = nun, Tsadee, resh (נצר)

Also natzer/netzer (נצר)

______ Ha'Natsariym or Ha'Netseriym ... The Natsarim (נצרים)

______________ Strong's Concordance: 5336 ... 'the Preserved Ones' (Natsir) 5341 ... 'the Guardians' (Natsar) 5342 ... 'the Branch' (Netser) Natsarim : Natsariym : Netserim : Netseriym = Nazarene (pl.) Netseriy : Netseri : Notseri : Noserim : Natseri = Nazarene (sing.) Guardian, Watchman, the Enclosed, the Locked Away, the Preserved, The Branches Nazir : Naziyr = Nazarite/Nazirite Separated, Consecrated ---------- Naziyr vow/oath:  Numbers 6 vs 1 - 21 ... Nazarite oath ______________ Jeremiah 31 vs 6: Natsarim/Natsariym ... For there shall be a day, that the Natsariym upon Mount Ephrayim shall cry, Arise ye, and let us go up to Tsiyon unto EL-YAHAWAH ELOHAYNU. Jeremiah 4 vs 16*** (Watchers) Make ye mention to the nations; behold, publish against Yerushalayim, that Natsariym come from a far country, and give out their voice against the cities of Yahudah. Isaiah 4 vs 2*** (Branch) In that day shall the Branch of YAHAWAH be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely for them that are escaped of Yashar'el.  He is the beloved one, the chosen one referenced in Isaiah 49 vs 1 - 13 [6 - 7] *** Isaiah 11 vs 1*** AND there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Yishai (Jesse), and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:  Netzer is the word used here for Branch  ---> Matthew 2 vs 23 references this scripture

Isaiah 60 vs 21*** Your people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land forever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified. Netzer is the word used here.


There is also a reference to the branch here but this one is a negative mention: Isaiah 14 vs 19 (Pride) ... A bad branch*** 


Matthew 2 vs 23***

And he came and dwelt in a city called Natsareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Netseriy (Nazarene). 


John 15 vs 5 [5 - 8] *** (Netseriym/Branches) I am the Vine, ye are the Netseriym (Branches): He that abides in me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. ———

So who are the they?

The Natsariym ... The true believers in MASHIACH. The truly elect followers of the Way of YAHAWAH Are you Natsarim or Christians? Check Matt 25 ... The 10 Virgins (5 are Natsarim and 5 are Christians) Natsariym qualities:

2 Peter 1 vs 4 - 8

Ephesians 5 vs 9

Galatians 5 vs 22 (Fruit of RUACH HA'QODESH)

plus 1 Corinthians 12 vs 8  - 11 ( Gifts of RUACH HA'QODESH) Choose!!

O YAHAWAH, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit. ... Jeremiah 16 vs 19

--------- The true church is called 'The Way' (The Way of YAHAWAH) & Natsariym follow this WAY Mark 12 vs 14 And when they were come, they say unto him, Rabbi, we know that you are true, and care for no man: for you regard not the person of men, but teach the Way of ELOHIYM in truth: Is it Lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not? John 14 vs 6 YAHAWAHSHAH said unto him, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me. Acts 9 vs 2 And desired of him cepheriym to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this Way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Yerushalayim. Acts 18 vs 25 & 26 This man was instructed in the Way of YAHAWAH; and being fervent in the ruach (spirit), he spoke and taught diligently the things of YAHAWAHSHAH, knowing only the immersion of Yahuchanon. And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue: whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took him unto them, and expounded unto him the Way of YAHAWAH more perfectly. Acts 19 vs 9 & 23 But when diverse were hardened, and believed not, but spoke evil of the Way of YAHAWAH before the multitude, he departed from them, and separated the Talmidiym, disputing daily in the school of one Tyrannus. And the same time there arose no small stir about the Way of YAHAWAH. (... that Way) Acts 24 vs 14 But this I confess unto you, that after the Way, which they call heresy, so worship I YAHAWAH of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the Torah and in the prophets: 1st Mention: Genesis 18 vs 19 For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall guard the Way of YAHAWAH, to do justice and judgment; that YAHAWAH may bring upon Avraham that which he has spoken of him. See Genesis 12 ... 1 - 3: The promise of descendants (whom Abram/Abraham will show the Way of YAHAWAH) ======================== Other references to 'The Way of YAHAWAH' in the scriptures ... John 1 vs 23 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the Way of YAHAWAH, as said the prophet Yesha`yahu. Luke 3 vs 4 As it is written in the cepher of the words of Yesha`yahu the prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the Way of YAHAWAH, make his paths straight. Mark 1 vs 3 The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the Way of YAHAWAH, make his paths straight. Matthew 3 vs 3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Yesha`yahu, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the Way of YAHAWAH, make his paths straight. John 1 vs 23 --> Isaiah 40 vs 3 Luke 3 vs 4 --> Isaiah 40 vs 3 Mark 1 vs 3 --> Isaiah 40 vs 3 Matthew 3 vs 3 --> Isaiah 40 vs 3 Isaiah 40 vs 3 ... Matthew/Mark/Luke/John The voice of him that cries in the wilderness, Prepare ye the Way of YAHAWAH, make straight in the desert a highway for our ELOHIYM. Proverbs 10 vs 29 The Way of YAHAWAH is strength to the upright: but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity. Jeremiah 5 vs 4 & 5 Therefore I said, Surely these are poor; they are foolish: for they know not the Way of YAHAWAH, nor the judgment of their ELOHIYM. I will get me unto the great men, and will speak unto them; for they have known the Way of YAHAWAH, and the judgment of their ELOHIYM: but these have altogether broken the yoke, and burst the bonds.  Judges 2 vs 22 That through them I may prove Yashar'el (Israel), whether they will guard the Way of YAHAWAH to walk therein, as their fathers did guard it, or not. Matthew 22 vs 16 --> Mark 12 vs 14 - ELOHIYM & Luke 20 vs 21 - ELOHIYM ... Reference: Teach the 'Way of YAHAWAH' in Truth ... Acts 16 vs 17 (The Way of YAHAWAHSHAH ... The Way of Salvation ) The same followed Pa'al and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of EL ELYON (Most High), which show unto us the way of yeshu`ah (salvation). 2 Kings 21 vs 22 And he forsook YAHUAH ELOHIYM of his fathers, and walked not in the Way of YAHAWAH. --------- Apocryphal References: Jasher 22:40; 23:28; 87:6; 87:8 (also 23:5 has a reference too) Jubilees 20:2 4 Esdras (Ezra) 4 vs 2 & 11 4 Esdras (Ezra) 5 vs 34 - EL ELYON --------- Guidance for the Way of YAHAWAH:

2 Tim 3 vs 14 - 17 ... About the purpose of Scripture But continue in the things which you have learned and have been assured of, knowing of whom you have learned them; And that from a child you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise unto yeshu`ah through belief which is in YAHAWAHSHAH HA'MASHIACH. All Scripture is given by Ha'RUACH YAHAWAH, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of YAH may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. 

2 Tim 2 vs 15

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.



Side note 1:

Matthew's Gospel was 1st written in Aramaic Hebrew not Greek***

Mark's Gospel was the 1st one written**


End side note 1.


Sect of Natsariym: Acts 24 vs 5 For we have found this man a pestilent fellow, and a mover of sedition among all the Yahudiym throughout the world, and a ringleader of the sect of the Netseriym: Acts 28 vs 22 - 23 But we desire to hear of you what you think: for as concerning this sect, we know that everywhere it is spoken against. Salvation was preached 1st to the Jew then to the Gentile Rom 1 vs 16 Matt 10 vs 5 - 7 Matt 15 vs 24 Natsarim were Hebrew. They were the 1st true followers of YAHAWAHSHAH ... in one accord with the Way of YAHAWAH But ... All we hear of today are about Christians: 1st reference to the title of Christian: Acts 11 vs 26: Christians were 1st called Christians in Antioch ... among Gentiles around 64 BC. This was where the 1st 'Gentile' Christian identity was referenced

References to the term 'Christian' in the Bible:  

Acts 11 vs 26

Acts 26 vs 28

1 Peter 4 vs 16  


Only 3 times in the Brit Chadashah/New Testament (NT) was the term used, but actually, in all 3 accounts, the original texts say Natsariym  

The most unfortunate truth about this title "Christian" is that, similar to its origins, where it was used as a derogatory word, this very title is looked at, once again, as a derogatory word today. But the difference now is that so many who identify as "Christian" (though they are not) are doing too many abominable things, so many un-Christ-like things, which the world sees and points a finger at to call out the hypocrisy of "Christians"

Anti-Natsarim actions of the early Christians: Ignatius of Antioch declared Torah abolished and Natsarim not of YAHAWAH but called Christianity the only true religion. He totally usurped the office of the bishop, exalting the office.


He pushed to replace the Sabbath with Sunday.


A history side note/Side note 2: Under the Roman Catholic church the Sabbath day was changed:

Claim authority to change Sabbath day: Rev. Stephen Keenan ... Doctrinal Catechism, p 174 » refer Henry Tuberville ... Christian Doctrine (1833 approbation), p 58 » refer Daniel Ferris ... Christian Doctrine Manual (1916 ed.), p 67 » refer Catechism of the Catholic church ... Reference 2184 & 1163 » refer Constantine ... Sunday as sabbath for invictus (Council of Nicea in March, 321) » refer -> Also: Britannica Encyclopedia of World Religions, 2006 ... p 262 » refer 'Constantine'

BUT ...

The Sabbath is not Sunday: Rev. Sir Isaac Williams ... Sermon on Catechism, p 334 Dr. Edward T. Hiscox ... New York Examiner, Nov. 16, 1893 Bishop William J. Seymour (African American holiness preacher ... Why we keep Sunday Baptist Faith & Message 2000, Article, VIII Baptist Church Manual, chpt 3, Doctrines of a church, Article XV ... Of the Christian Sabbath American Presbyterian Board of Publication, Tract # 175 Harold Lindsell: Fuller Theological Seminary 1976 book 'Battle for the Bible' ... Christianity Today, Nov. 5th, 1976 Question ...

Assemblies of GOD: Enrichment > Spring 2013 > Since you work on Sunday, when is your Sabbath If Sunday is the Sabbath then how can Resurrection Sunday (which is the 1st day of the resurrection) be the Sabbath Used to support Sunday as Sabbath ... a futile effort: *Acts 20 vs 7 ... Because of the reference to breaking of bread as evidence for Sunday   > Acts 2 vs 46 ... Breaking bread was a daily event » weak support Acts 13 vs 42 - 44 ... Sabbath Acts 17 vs 2 ... Sabbath Acts 18 vs 4, 11 ...Sabbath *1 Corinthians 16 vs 1 - 2 ... No collection on Sabbath not Sunday service collection *John 20 vs 19 ... Resurrection day (1st day of the week evening) Matthew 24 vs 20 ... Sabbath Luke 23 vs 56 ... Sabbath *Revelation 1 vs 10 ... Isaiah 58 vs 13 ... YAHAWAH's Day

But John 14 vs 15 ... If you love me, obey my Commandments


Roman Catholic church is the Beast. It has acted as Balaam***  via various councils like ...

Council of Nicaea ... 321 AD

Council of Laodicea

Council of Trent

... etc


End side note 2.

====================== So ...


Philippians 2:12

Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. Romans 11:18 Boast not that you have been grafted into YAHAWAH's Family where the original members were broken off from ... but be grateful and fearfully thankful. If they were not spared for straying then why should we be spared if we stray


Jude 1:3

Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints _______________

And remember ... John 14 vs 27: Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. ––––––––––

Natsariym follow the Way of YAHAWAH.


Natsariym are characterized by Micah 6 vs 8 & 1 John as well. ABBA's promises to them are mentioned throughout the scriptures just as can be seen in Jeremiah 32 vs 38 - 40  amongst many other verses.


Just food for thought.




Shalom
