The Laodicean Gospel Era ...

Updated: Jul 2

The Grave Errors of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) message a.k.a the Hyper Charismatic, Seeker Sensitive, Prosperity Gospel or The Name it & Claim it, Word of faith movement

... Testing their doctrine in the light of Scritpture

Abba!! Let there be light (יהי אור) ~ ihi or (pronounced yehi orrr) ... Fiat Lux (Latin)

... BERE'SHIYTH (Genesis) 1 vs 3

The Falling away:

The falling away, from the truth of 'HaBesorah' (the Gospel), started long long long ago.

This spiritual condition, the falling away, actually started during the time of MASHIACH, just as was pointed out in the John 6 vs 66 verse of scripture, and just as MASHIACH had also warned and mentioned in the following scripture ...

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that brings not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. ... MATTITHYAHU (MATTHEW) 7:15-20

This would continue on down through the centuries.

The falling away became truly evident and false doctrines a big problem such that, continuing on throughout the 1st century church era, the Apostles Peter, Paul and John all spoke about them through warnings and admonishing words. The warnings can be seen in the following letters:

1 Corinthians 11 vs 13 - 14

2 Peter 2 vs 1

2 Peter 3 vs 3 - 6

1 John 4 vs 1

And also in ...

Jude 1 vs 4

As well as:

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; ... TASLONIQIYM SHENIY (2 Thessalonians) 2:3

Evidence shows that the 'church' today, is now deep deep deeeeeep into the muddy watered era where truth is completely rejected and lies or falsehoods are applauded, honored and revered.

The Truth is now hyper-subjective. Today's virtue barometer level is so low it is in negative digits. The general tolerance for impropriety has gone waaaaay past all shock value measurements or thresholds. Censorship focused calls for decency, which used to be typically based on moral outrage and a reaction which used to be the method for checks and balances on society, are now utterly ineffective.

The church is right in the thick of it at this point, before the lawless one is revealed.

The church, or more specifically, 80% of those who largely profess to be Christians, has faithfully decided to proceed with the fulfillment of prophecy. Proving the scriptures to be correct. The church has indeed truly kicked off and successfully continued on with the 'falling away' phase of the count down to the end.

The Scriptures tell us:

NOW the RUACH speaks expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing ruachoth (spirits), and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from food, which YAHAWAH has created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the Truth. For every creature of YAH is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: 


And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because the transgression of the Torah shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 


For there shall arise false Mashiachiym, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; so much so that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.


For they are the ruachoth of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of YAHAWAH TSEVA'OTH.


The scriptures warn us:

BELOVED, believe not every ruach, but try the ruachoth whether they are of YAH: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the RUACH YAHAWAH: Every ruach that confesses that YAHAWAHSHAH HA'MASHIACH is come in the flesh is of YAHAWAH: And every ruach that confesses not that YAHAWAHSHAH HA'MASHIACH is come in the flesh is not of YAHAWAH: and this is that ruach of antimashiach, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. Ye are of YAHAWAH, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world hears them. We are of YAH: he that knows YAHAWAH hears us; he that is not of YAHAWAH hears not us. Hereby know we the RUACH EMETH, and the ruach of error. 


Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.


And now ye know what withholds that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity does already work: only he who now lets will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Torahless (lawless) One be revealed, whom ADONAI YAHAWAHSHAH shall consume with the RUACH of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the Truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause YAH shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the Truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 


Do not be swayed by this spirit of error and do not follow its seduction ...

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


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


Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For everyone that asks receives; and he that seeks finds; and to him that knocks it shall be opened. 


And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For everyone that asks receives; and he that seeks finds; and to him that knocks it shall be opened. 

... LUQAS (LUKE) 11:9-10

Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and keep the commandments which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our cepher.


We should be genuinely seeking ABBA and His Kingdom. Truthfully Ask, Seek & Knock ... The door to ABBA's Kingdom shall be opened onto you. But most importantly, according to Isaiah 55 vs 6 - 13, seek for ABBA while He may be found ...


Remember: The Matthew 25 virgins were all part of the elect!!! 5 were lukewarm virgins!!!

The Scriptures say this about being lukewarm ...

And unto the angel of the called out assembly of the Laodiceans write; These things says the Amein, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of YAHAWAH; I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot: I would you were cold or hot. So then because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue you out of my mouth. Because you say, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and know not that you are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel you to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that you may be rich; and white raiment, that you may be clothed, and that the shame of your nakedness do not appear; and anoint your eyes with eyesalve, that you may see.


Read about the 10 virgins in Matthew 25 then check yourself to see which of the 10 virgins that you are truly identified to be today.


Confession onto Salvation:

And one of the criminals which were hanged railed on him, saying, If you be HA'MASHIACH, save yourself and us. But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Do not you fear YAH, seeing you are in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man has done nothing amiss. And he said unto YAHAWAH, ADONAI, remember me when you come into your Kingdom. And YAHAWAHSHAH said unto him, Amein I say unto you today, you shall be with me in paradise. 

... LUQAS (LUKE) 23:39-43

The steps to Salvation Explained here:

That if you shall confess with your mouth ADONAI YAHAWAHSHAH, and shall believe in your heart that YAH has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto yeshu`ah. For the Scripture says, Whosoever believes on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Yahudiy and the Yavaniy: for the same YAHAWAH over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of YAHAWAH shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? 

... ROMAIYM (ROMANS) 10:9-14

And be obedient:

Then Kepha said unto them, Repent, and be immersed everyone of you in the name of YAHAWAH-YAHAWAHSHAH for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the RUACH HA'QODESH.

... MA'ASIYM (ACTS) 2:38

Read His Word!!  Study it and don't get deceived!!! By reading and studying Scripture you will know that:

All Scripture is given by the RUACH YAHAWAH, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of YAH may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. 


So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of YAHAWAH.

... ROMAIYM (ROMANS) 10:17

and you will prove the scriptures to be right when you ...

Study to show yourself approved unto YAH, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.


Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? has not YAH made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of YAH the world by wisdom knew not YAHAWAH, it pleased YAH by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. For the Yahudiym require a sign, and the Yavaniym seek after wisdom: But we preach MASHIACH crucified, unto the Yahudiym a stumblingblock, and unto the Yavaniym foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Yahudiym and Yavaniym, MASHIACH the power of YAH, and the wisdom of YAH. Because the foolishness of YAH is wiser than men; and the weakness of YAH is stronger than men. 


AND I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of YAHAWAH. For I determined not to know anything among you, save YAHAWAHSHAH HA'MASHIACH, and him crucified. 


If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our ADONAI YAHAWAHSHAH HA'MASHIACH, and to the doctrine which is according to the Fear of YAHAWAH; He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof comes envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the Truth, supposing that godliness is a means for gain: from such withdraw yourself. 


Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our ADONAI YAHAWAHSHAH HA'MASHIACH, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

... ROMAIYM (ROMANS) 16:17-18

If you do not read and study, you will be easily swayed by half truths and counterfeit doctrines ... deceived by LIES!!

Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing. For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of YAHAWAH ; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong food. For everyone that uses milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong food belongs to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

... IVRIYM (HEBREWS) 5:11-14


Of such one will I glory: yet of myself I will not glory, but in my infirmities. For though I would desire to glory, I shall not be a fool; for I will say the Truth: but now I forbear, lest any man should think of me above that which he sees me to be, or that he hears of me. And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. For this thing I besought EL-YAHAWAH thrice, that it might depart from me. And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for you: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of MASHIACH may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for MASHIACH'S sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. 


These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.


But the Fear of YAHAWAH with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the belief, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. But you, O man of YAH, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, virtue, belief, love, patience, meekness. 


Responsibility of the Saints and reason for the Besorah:

The 1-2-3 steps of 'Ha Besorah' ...

But we preach MASHIACH crucified, unto the Yahudiym a stumblingblock, and unto the Yavaniym foolishness;


Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, immersing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the RUACH HA'QODESH: Teaching them to guard all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amein. 


And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the qodeshiym, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of MASHIACH: Till we all come in the unity of the belief, and of the knowledge of the Son of ELOHIYM, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of MASHIACH: 

... EPH'SIYM (EPHESIANS) 4:11-13

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 the RUACH YAHAWAH, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of YAH may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. 


Then they that gladly received his word were immersed: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. 

... MA'ASIYM (ACTS) 2:41-42

Be Prepared!!!

But sanctify YAHAWAH the MASHIACH in your hearts: and 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:

... KEPHA RI'SHON (1 PETER) 3:15

Preach the Word; be ready in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the Truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of your ministry. 


Even with your lifestyle ...

Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the nature of YAHAWAH, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your belief virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience the fear of YAH; And to the fear of YAH, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our ADONAI YAHAWAHSHAH HA'MASHIACH. 

... KEPHA SHENIY (2 PETER) 1:4-8

He has showed you, O man, what is good; and what YAHAWAH requires of you, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your ELOHIYM?

... MIYKAH (MICAH) 6:8

Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.


And show love to all ...

1 Corinthians 13

But ... the scriptures also say ...

2 Timothy 2 vs 23 ... Keep away from foolish arguments

Titus 3 vs 9 ... Avoid foolish controversies


Description of a Pastor/Shepherd in scripture and their responsibility:

Most Pastors today engage in motivational speaking instead of teaching the scriptures to their congregation. It is all about self help tips and how various Bible verses can help us fix our messy lives ... Like a Spiritual Ted Talk ... rather than actually teaching real deep truths of ABBA YAHAWAH's Word.

But the scriptures have explained explicitly what Pastors & Shepherds should be like in the verses below:

THIS is a true saying, If a man desire the office of an elder, he desires a good work. An elder then must be blameless, the man of one woman, vigilant, sober, of good behavior, given to hospitality, apt to teach; Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; One that rules well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the called out assembly of YAHAWAH?) Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil. 


If any be blameless, the man of one woman, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly. For an elder must be blameless, as the steward of YAHAWAH; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre; But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate; Holding fast the faithful word as he has been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers. 

... TITUS (TITUS) 1:6-9

But YAHAWAHSHAH called them to him, and said unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the other nations exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them. But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister: And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all. For even the Son of A'dam came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. 

... MARQUS (MARK) 10:42-45

The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of MASHIACH, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: Feed the flock of YAHAWAH which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over YAH'S heritage, but being examples to the flock. 

... KEPHA RI'SHON (1 PETER) 5:1-3

So when they had dined, YAHAWAHSHAH said to Shim`on Kepha, Shim`on, son of Yonah, do you love me more than these? He said unto him, Yea, ADONAI; you know that I love you. He said unto him, Feed my lambs. He said to him again the second time, Shim`on, son of Yonah, do you love me? He said unto him, Yea, ADONAI; you know that I love you. He said unto him, Feed my sheep. He said unto him the third time, Shim`on, son of Yonah, do you love me? Kepha was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Do you love me? And he said unto him, ADONAI, you know all things; you know that I love you. YAHAWAHSHAH said unto him, Feed my sheep. Amein, Amein, I say unto you, When you were young, you girded yourself, and walked whither you would: but when you shall be old, you shall stretch forth your hands, and another shall gird you, and carry you whither you would not. 

... YAHUCHANON (JOHN) 21:15-18



Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our ADONAI YAHAWAHSHAH HA'MASHIACH, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

... ROMAIYM (ROMANS) 16:17-18


So ... How about these Prosperity pastors ... Hmm?!!

Well! We are now, literally, in the Laodicean age of the church. This age has seen the birth and rise of the New Apostolic Reformation theology, a flavor of New Age mysticism but for "Christians" (so to speak), which is directly linked to the Seeker Sensitive, Hyper Charismatic, Word of Faith Movement or The Name it & Claim it Prosperity Gospel.

Pastors have left their duty posts to become motivational speakers and New Age Gurus by sharing messages that align with 'The Secret' which is a belief that Oprah peddles, amongst other new age philosophies. Majority of these pastors have chosen not to share the Besorah anymore.

Hence they have become 'clouds without water' to those seeking the rains of nourishment of the Word of truth.

These are spots in your feasts of love, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withers, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; ... YAHUDAH (JUDE) 1:12

These pastors have become like the tax collectors of old. The Tax collectors, in Judah, due to their activities (executing over taxation on their own people, which was collected for the Romans, while getting filthy rich in the process), were despised by the people and so were absolutely avoided.

But today, these so-called pastors, who act the same way as the those despised tax collectors of old, are actually celebrated. So with clever words, cunning gimmicks and theological guilt tripping plus shaming along with deliberate twisting of scripture (some theatrics included), majority of their congregation are deceived (Romans 16 vs 18). Hence many, truly, have yet to realize that they are being fleeced just as the scriptures say:

And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingers not, and their damnation slumbers not.


How many pastors, today, can honestly quote 2 Thessalonians 3 vs 8 - 9 in reference to themselves and have others unanimously agree that this verse does indeed apply to that pastor truthfully?!

Sadly, in the church today, we have a plague of Christ-less Christianity starting from the pastor's pulpit right down through the pews and on out to the parking lot.


Important to note: Though these 2 verses, below, are quite often used by pastors to defend the doctrine of the prosperity gospel, Jeremiah 29 vs 11 was a promise to a nation, to Israel, and not any individual. Likewise, 2 Chronicles 7 vs 14 was solely a promise for Israel too.

Can we apply knowledge of these scriptures today in prayer or to understand ABBA? YES!!  YES Indeed!!! But you cannot claim someone else's promise.


A go to verse for prosperity preachers is:

Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers. ... YAHUCHANON SHELIYSHIY (3 JOHN) 1:2

This verse (above) is just a greeting by Apostle John in a letter to his friend, Gaius. It is not a special scripture on promises for prosperity to us by ABBA, though these pastors try to convince us into believing so.

Read Jeremiah 23 to see what ABBA says to (and about) these false prophets.

In fact the very 1st verse starts off with "Woe unto the pastors ... " which is indeed a most glaring intro statement, by ABBA YAHAWAH, to say the least.

Now, interestingly, to those who follow these prosperity preaching pastors (actually to the point of worshipping them), please read verse 31 ... "therefore they shall not profit this people at all, says YAHAWAH" is what that verse says.

What power do you really have?

Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?


Go to now, ye that say, today or tomorrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. For that ye ought to say, If YAHAWAH will, we shall live, and do this, or that. But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil.

... YA'AQOV (JAMES) 4:13-16

The Seeker Sensitive Church:

Today, the Evangelical church and the Pentecostal church, on a very very broad scale is focused on walking the Seeker Sensitive path. Instead of preaching to and teaching the world about repentance from sin and instead of being distinctly different from the world, the church, now, conforms to be just like the world, against the Romans 12 vs 2 verse, in an effort to attract the world. Hence, with this effort, forgetting that the Bible specifically says that one should not be deceived but evil associations corrupt good character (paraphrased from 1 Corinthians 15 vs 33).

Actually, there is a saying that goes like this:

If you dance with the devil, the devil doesn't change ... he changes you

It is indeed unfortunate, but the truth is that the church has now ended up becoming indistinguishable from the world. In lieu of this decision, people end up being completely led astray because the Besorah (Gospel) is watered down and is, then, mixed with false teachings and all sorts of heresies.

The church, today, has completely lowered the bar to where there is no room for truth to be taught, let alone believed. Instead, truth is now viewed as archaic and intolerant. It is even scoffed at actually.

Now observe MASHIACH's perfect anti-seeker sensitive response from the scriptures:

And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Rabbi, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life? And YAHAWAHSHAH said unto him, Why do you call me good? there is none good but one, that is, ELOHIYM. You know the commandments, Do not break wedlock, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honor your father and your mother. And he answered and said unto him, Rabbi, all these have I observed from my youth. Then YAHAWAHSHAH beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing you lack: go your way, sell whatsoever you have, and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven: and come, take up your cross, and follow me. And he (the young rich ruler) was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions. And YAHAWAHSHAH looked round about, and said unto his Talmidiym, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the Kingdom of ELOHIYM! MARQUS (MARK) 10:17-23

Entrance to the Kingdom is not for those who seek to have a god that bends to the will of people who want to have their way or those with divided allegiances between ABBA and the world.

No!! It is for those who give up all ... all ... everything ... for MASHIACH (as shown in the verse above). As we see here, in the verse above, MASHIACH did not adjust or lower the bar for the rich young ruler (the seeker), like today's churches do, in order for the man to feel comfortable, let alone feel justified. No!! No!! What MASHIACH did was proclaim the established & truly unyielding standard for entrance into ABBA's MALCHUT (Kingdom) while expressing the fact that the path to the Kingdom will come at a real cost.

The Reason: Salvation is free. Discipleship is not!!

Name it & Claim it?!!

Is the life of a true believer ... a 'Christian' ... really just about prosperity and riches? Is it really about living one's life by just following the 'man-centered' new age flavored focus of the 'Name it & Claim it' principles of the prosperity gospel or as Kenneth Copeland called it and I quote "Blab it & Grab it" during one of his televised appearances. Is that really what the Christian life is all about?! Is it about living your best life now?! Is the Christian life, today, all about 'Signs & Wonders' and no longer about Truth, the Kingdom of ABBA YAHAWAH and the Gospel of MASHIACH?!

MASHIACH actually, in Matthew 16 vs 4, calls a generation seeking signs a wicked and adulterous generation.

The wicked Shepherds or pastors constantly trick and manipulate their congregations and the larger masses with the lies of signs and wonders. They always misrepresent scriptures like the following scripture, below, which is commonly misused by prosperity pastors, like Kenneth Copeland, which are direct words of MASHIACH from the Gospel of John:

And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. ... YAHUCHANON (JOHN) 14:13

And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Amein, Amein, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full. These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time comes, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall show you plainly of the Father. At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you: 

... YAHUCHANON (JOHN) 16:23-26

And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him. 


Whatever we ask for in His Name?!! Are these the Scriptures that these malefactors professing to be pastors have twisted for personal gain? And of course they take these scriptures out of their true context. The truth is that this is about whatever we ask in MASHIACH's Name that is according to His Will and pertaining to His Kingdom, not the world and not worldly requests, He will give to us.


Saying, Father, if you be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but yours, be done.

... LUQAS (LUKE) 22:42

And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, ADONAI, if you will, you can make me clean.


And it came to pass, when he was in a certain city, behold a man full of leprosy: who seeing YAHUSHA fell on his face, and besought him, saying, ADONAI, if you will, you can make me clean. And he put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will: be clean. And immediately the leprosy departed from him. ... LUQAS (LUKE) 5:12-13

The centurion answered and said, ADONAI, I am not worthy that you should come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.


It is not about naming it and claiming it. No!! That is new age thought. Even the Centurion understood that MASHIACH had the power but it would only happen, if MASHIACH was willing.

It is actually all about His Will!!!

ABBA YAHAWAH hears all our prayers as children of His Kingdom and He does answer all our prayers too. But it is really important to always remember that, just as 'Yes' is an answer, subsequently 'No' is also an answer as well. Also sometimes the answer is "WAIT!" because ABBA knows best. So if ABBA's answer to one person is 'Yes' and to the next person it is 'No' then it may not be a faith thing (as many tend to say and believe or even judge) but it actually may be a case of His Will at work.

So having Faith is important and excellent but we must understand that His Will supersedes it all, hence we all must obey and honor His Will.

Align your faith with His Will, not with this world and with worldly desires. Use your faith to seek ABBA and focus on Him and His Will.

For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as YAHAWAH has dealt to every man the measure of faith.


But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that comes to YAHAWAH must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.


So is it Name it and claim it healing or ABBA's will? Read and understand the context then confirm the truth ...


Mark 2 ... Healing of the palsy

Mark 10 ... Blind Bartimaeus healing

Luke 7 vs 12 - 15 ... Raised a man from the dead

John 5 (Feast) ... Pool of Bethesda healing

John 9 ... Blind man healing

Also His will ... Healing of the cut off ear:

Luke 22 vs 47 - 53 ... The ear was cut off in verse 50 and was restored in verse 51!!!

Other references ...

Matthew 26

Mark 14

John 18 

A side note:

In fact, diligently seeking ABBA has the attached promise of what the world seeks and focuses on solely. Just read Matthew 6 vs 33 as a reference. Remember also that Solomon did not ask for riches, but for Wisdom instead. Wisdom comes from ABBA YAHAWAH, as the scriptures point out in Proverbs. Wisdom is one of the seven Ruachoth that are before the Throne of ABBA YAHAWAH (Isaiah 11 vs 2 & Revelation 1, 4 & 5). The scriptures urge us to get:

Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all your getting get understanding.


And for seeking ABBA first, He made Solomon very rich!!


It is solely ABBA's Will ... not Name it & Claim it!!

A very unfortunate and most diabolical thing, that is evident with the Progressive Christian ideology, is the active demoting or reduction of ABBA YAHAWAH's Sovereignty, Majesty, Deity, Holiness & Divinity to man's level ... making man equal to ABBA YAHAWAH in some form or fashion. Hence lowering our Creator to the level of man, even though the scriptures clearly say:

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, says YAHAWAH. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. ... YESHA'YAHU (ISAIAH) 55:8-9

The next thing is that this ideology goes on to attempt to deify man, thus raising man to the position of elohiym and claiming man to be god (lowercase 'g').

Yes!! Many, in the Word of Faith ministry, claim that we are gods (lowercase 'g') and that just like ABBA YAHAWAH, who created us as little gods, we have the power of creative speech by means of a force given to us called Faith.

Let it be made crystal clear ... we are not gods ... all that man is, all that we truly are is the pinnacle of ABBA YAHAWAH's creation on earth ... His creation that has been freely given the blessing of the opportunity to know Him.

Now, following this above-mentioned statement, an often used or misused scripture, which is, perhaps, deliberately not accurately quoted, is this one:

Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.


Most interpret this to mean ... One's words can either bring joy or cause misery.

This is true, actually, in the sense that one's words can build others up, or tear them down. Hence one's words are either speaking life to a person that could be hurting or disillusioned or even angry or their words are speaking death and destruction to a person's spirit.

This is a concept that the New Age Movement latched onto and twisted to make our words appear more important than they really are. Unfortunately this was then repackaged into the Word of Faith "Name it and Claim it" ministry or Prosperity Gospel to act as a buttress for their message that we can speak things into existence. That what one thinks about, and then proceeds to speak out loud, it then becomes that person's reality.

The truth, today in the New Covenant, is that using your tongue to share and proclaim the Besorah (Gospel), the Good News, to unbelievers is the real meaning of Proverbs 18:21 because the Besorah is ABBA YAHAWAH's Word and His Words are Spirit (Ruach) and Life:

It is the Ruach that quickens; the flesh profits nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are ruach, and they are life. ... YOCHANON (JOHN) 6:63


For there is no respect of persons with YAH.


ABBA said to Mosheh:

I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. So then it is not of him that wills, nor of him that runs, but of YAHAWAH that shows mercy. 

... ROMAIYM (ROMANS) 9:15-16

The Name it and claim it theology or doctrine is a lie from the Word of Faith ministry. Favor is solely based on ABBA's Will. And that is because He is Sovereign above all and He does as He pleases according to Psalm 115 vs 3 and Psalm 135 vs 6 in Heaven and on earth.

N/B: Please do be aware that just because you are blessed to ask and successfully receive, this does not validate nor confirm the Word of Faith, Name it and Claim it doctrine. Instead it is evidence of ABBA's Will and decision to show you favor because it pleases Him to do so.

Kingdom of YAHAWAH and the rich?

And YAHAWAHSHAH looked round about, and said unto his Talmidiym, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the Kingdom of YAHAWAH!

... MARQUS (MARK) 10:23

So ... Christianity = Prosperity??!!!! REALLY???????!!!!!!!!! Matthew 6 vs 19 - 21 does not seem to indicate or advise such ... instead lay up treasures in Heaven.

But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation. .

... LUQAS (LUKE) 6:24

For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

... MARQUS (MARK) 8:36

YAHAWAHSHAH said unto him, If you will be perfect, go and sell that you have, and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.


But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the belief, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 


Then said YAHAWAHSHAH unto his Talmidiym, Amein I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the Kingdom of YAHAWAH.


A glaring point of MASHIACH that stands powerfully against the anti-prosperity gospel is found in ...

Matthew 7 vs 13 - 14: (The Path Way = Isaiah 35 vs 8 - 9) = narrow gate not the broad gate

Matthew 10 vs 32 - 39: Deny self, deny family, confess MASHIACH, and carry your cross

Matthew 11 vs 1 - 15: John the Baptist's predicament and YAHAWAHSHAH's response

Matthew 11 vs 6 & Luke 7 vs 23:

And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.

In the TaNaKh & Brit Chadashah, one is not only promised health and wealth (which are actually by products of one's belief, obedience and worship of ABBA) but one can be sure that there is a promise of chastening or chastisement by ABBA if you stray, because ABBA Loves us:

My son, despise not the chastening of YAHAWAH; neither be weary of his correction: For  whom YAHAWAH loves he corrects; even as a father the son in whom he delights. 

... MISHLEI (PROVERBS) 3:11-12

As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.


In conclusion, health and wealth are not the promise to MASHIACH's followers but the promise is salvation for those that endure to the end:

But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.


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.


For we are not as many, which corrupt the Word of YAHAWAH: but as of sincerity, but as of YAH, in the sight of YAHAWAH speak we in MASHIACH.


Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. ... PHILIPPIYM (PHILIPPIANS) 4:8

For to follow HA'MASHIACH, according to Luke 9 vs 23, you must be ready to lay down your life (deny yourself) and pick up your cross daily . Forsake what the world may attempt to offer or try to tempt you with be it riches, status, power or fame or whatever. Live your life for YAHAWAHSHAH HA'MASHIACH now, in obedience and total reverence. Be content with all the daily blessings that are bestowed upon you and do not be swayed, at all, by the myriad of false teachers and doctrines of demons that have infiltrated the church. Rid yourself of pride, status and worldly pursuits or worldly gain and turn to HA'MASHIACH totally today for the glory yet ahead. Consider Philippians 2 vs 5 - 8 as the perfect example.

The era of the Laodicean church has brought forth many counterfeit doctrines which are of the devil. The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) theology or doctrine from whence the false Word of Faith Movement or Name it & Claim it, Prosperity Gospel message arose, is an evil lie. It is a doctrine of demons that is void of truth. The Prosperity Gospel doctrine is derived from the New Age movement philosophy and New age thought.

This hyper charismatic seeker sensitive system has turned people to a false faith, faith in self over faith in ABBA, our Creator. It promotes the idea, the lie once told to Eve in the garden, that we can be gods and can be just like ABBA, YAHAWAH, our Creator.

In fact, below the surface, it even gets much worse than this. And that, dear reader, would have to be a topic for another blog post.

But ... It must be mentioned that the NAR has paved the way for the extremely poisonous and more insidious Evangelical cancer of 'Pop' Gospel Christianity called Progressive Christianity, a movement that rejects the faith once given to the saints and aligns its interests firmly and squarely with the world and the New Age thought movement which is self centered not YAHAWAH centered. The focus being Feelings over the Faith ... It is totally man-centric.



The world cannot hate you; but me it hates, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.


In John 7 vs 7 MASHIACH points out the reason for world's hatred of Him.

If the world hates you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.


If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: את but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.


Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his adoniy. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have guarded my word, they will guard yours also.


But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me.


If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.


He that hates me hates my Father also.


If I had not done among them the works which no other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.


But, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in the Writings: They hated me without a cause.


I am the Vine, ye are the Netseriym: He that abides in me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.


MASHIACH's perfect anti-seeker sensitive response:

And Yahusha said unto him, Why do you call me good? there is none good but one, that is, Elohiym. You know the commandments, Do not break wedlock, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honor your father and your mother. And he answered and said unto him, Rabbi, all these have I observed from my youth. Then Yahusha beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing you lack: go your way, sell whatsoever you have, and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven: and come, take up your cross, and follow me. And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions. And Yahusha looked round about, and said unto his Talmidiym, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the Kingdom of Elohiym!

... MARQUS (MARK) 10:18-23

Salvation is free but Discipleship is not easy ... it bears a cost.

=> Read John 15


Prosperity preachers trafficking in heretical wares ... peddling lies disguised as the truth and preying on the poor and sick

Prosperity preachers have made Christianity a laughing stock

The prosperity gospel is Christianity's version of professional wrestling

Consequence => Jude 13


Trials and tests from ABBA are for us to learn about ourselves by testing the strength of our faith in Him, to humble us and to wean us off of the things of the world. Trials and tests from ABBA also call us to Hevenly hope as well as to reveal what we truly love.

Exodus 16 vs 4

Deuteronomy 8 vs 2

Habakkuk 3 vs 16-19 (also see his lamentation in 1 vs 1-3)

2 Chronicles 32 vs 31

1 Peter 1 vs 6

2 Corinthians 4 vs 16

2 Corinthians 12 vs 7

Colossians 3 vs 2

Genesis 22

Deuteronomy 13


And YAHAWAH said unto him, Who has made man's mouth? or who makes the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I YAHAWAH?


See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no elohiym with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.


Then Kepha said, Silver and Gold have I none; but such as I have give I you: In the name of YAHAWAHSHAH HA'MASHIACH the Netseriy, rise up and walk.

... MA'ASIYM (ACTS) 3:6

Also remember that such was the fate of these ones who truly truly followed MASHIACH:

Stephen ... stoned

Peter ... Crucified upside-down

James ... Beheaded

Paul ... Beheaded

The last word on this is that even these followers had outstanding health issues too and didn't obtain a miraculous healing by naming it & claiming it:

Trophimus ... 2 Timothy 4 vs 20

Epaphroditus ... Philippians 2 vs 25 - 28

Timothy ... 1 Timothy 5 vs 23

Paul ... Galatians 4 vs 13 vs 14

Because just as MASHIACH has told us:

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world ... YOCHANON (JOHN) 16:33  

So, brethren, just as Revelation 3 vs 22 implores and urges us all:

He who has ears, let him hear what the RUACH (SPIRIT) is saying to the qodeshiym (called out assembly).

Know the Truth and be set free ... John 8 vs 32


Leviticus 11 vs 45;

Leviticus 19 vs 2;

Leviticus 20 vs 7;

Leviticus 20 vs 26;

Leviticus 21 vs 8;

Deuteronomy 23 vs 14;

1 Peter 1 vs 15 - 16;

Hebrews 12 vs 14

... Also Ephesians 5 vs 1 and 1 Thessalonians 4 vs 7
