Our Beliefs

YAHUWAH IS ONE

There is one loving Creator (Deut. 6:4; Mark 12:29; 1 Cor. 8:9) a personal, spiritual being, omnipotent, omniscient, eternal, unchangeable (Malachi 3:6) and everywhere present by His holy spirit (Psalms 139:7).

The Creator is the great "I AM" ("I AM that I AM" - Exodus 3:14). His name, pronounced in the Hebrew (יהוה), is Yahuwah, which His people are to proclaim to all nations, reverence, and honor by their lives, conversation, worship, and obedience.

ONE MEDIATOR

There is one mediator between Yahuwah and men, the man Yahushua (1 Timothy 2:5) who is the first begotten, totally human, non-pre-existent, son of Yahuwah born of a virgin (Luke 1:26-35). He came to fulfill the promises and covenants of Yahuwah with mankind. He is not “God the Son” of the false satanic “trinity.” He was made of the seed of Abraham and of David (Romans 1:2). He was tried and tempted as we are (Heb.4:15), resisted sin even to death (Philippians 2:8) for every man (Hebrews 2:9) to make reconciliation for our sins (Heb.2:17). By him came the resurrection of the dead (1 Cor. 15:21) and as the firstfruits / firstborn (1 Cor. 15:20), he is heir and will receive the kingdom from Yahuwah to reign until all enemies including death are destroyed (1 Cor. 15:20). Then, at the end of the Millennium, he will hand over all to Yahuwah. (1 Cor. 15:28).

THE GOSPEL (GOOD NEWS)

The Gospel, or Good News, is that we've been reconciled to the Father through Yahushua by his death, burial, and resurrection (1 Cor. 15:1-4), the reward of which is eternal citizenship in the kingdom of Yahuwah to be established on earth as His dwelling place among men. This was the central message of Yahushua during his earthly sojourn (Mark 1:1, 14, 15; Matt. 6:33) and his sole intent and purpose was to teach, qualify, and enable his fellow human beings to inherit, enter (Mark 10:15), and occupy this kingdom. The final destination of the righteous, therefore, is not heaven - above the earth (Psalm 37:9, Psalm 37:11,John 3:13, Acts 2:34, Matthew 5:5), but the kingdom of Yahuwah, which will be established on earth (Matthew 6:10, Luke 11:2). See also: Daniel 2:34-35, 44-45; 7:13-14, 27

THE INHABITANTS OF YAHUWAH’S KINGDOM

All have sinned and are dependent on Yahushua for justification (Romans 3:23-24), grace to obey (John 15:5, Titus 3:5), sanctification (1 Corinthians 1:30), and glorification (Romans 8:17).

None can see or enter Yahuwah’s kingdom unless born of water and the spirit. The redeemed will be given immortality at Yahushua’s return (John 3:3, 5; 1 Corinthians 15:52; Luke 20:36).

 

BAPTISM: HOW, WHY, WHEN, & BY WHOM?

Baptism by immersion is the ordinance showing faith in Yahushua's death, burial, and resurrection (Romans 6:3-6; Colossians 2:12). Following faith and repentance, baptism in the authority and name of Yahushua (Acts 2:38) may be performed by any true member of Yahuwah's ekklesia (Hebrews 12:18-24). See also: Acts 8:12, Acts 8:16, Acts 19:5.

HOLY SCRIPTURES ARE INSPIRED

The Holy Scriptures, Old and New Testaments, were given by inspiration of Yahuwah, contain a full revelation of His will to man, and are the only infallible rule of faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:16).

THE IMPORTANCE OF PROPHECY

Prophecy shows our position in history as a vital part of Yahuwah’s revelation (Deuteronomy 29:29, Psalms 119:105; 2 Peter 1:19) and its study affords a blessing (Revelation 1:3). Most have been fulfilled except for the closing scenes.

TABERNACLES: EARTHLY AND HEAVENLY

The heavenly sanctuary/tabernacle of the new covenant (Hebrews 8 and onward) with Yahushua as high priest is the antitype of the Mosaic tabernacle and earthly priesthood of the past (Hebrews 8:1-5).

THE LAW OF YAHUWAH

Yahuwah’s moral requirements, summarized in the 10 commandments, are binding upon all men in all times. The commandments were deposited in the earthly “ark of the covenant” (Numbers 10:33; Hebrews 9:4) as a transcript of those in the heavenly sanctuary, seen under the seventh trumpet (Revelation 11:19).

THE TEACHINGS OF MOSES: WHAT WE PRACTICE AND WHAT WAS FULFILLED

The teachings of Moses (Acts 15:21; Mat.23:1-3) are to be observed with judgment, mercy, faith, and love (Matthew 23:23; Luke 11:42). While the blood sacrifices and oblations were fulfilled at the cross, (Daniel 9:27) the rest of the law is still binding and is to be taught to all nations as commanded by Yahushua himself (Mat. 23:2-3; 28:20).

YAHUWAH’S SEAL

The fourth commandment invites us to devote the seventh day of each Biblical week, the Sabbath, to the abstinence from our own labor and to the performance of sacred and religious duties. It will continue to be observed by the faithful for eternity (Isaiah 66:22, 23). The terms, “Jewish Sabbath” and “Christian Sabbath” are deceptive and can be found nowhere in Scripture. The Sabbath was sanctified at Creation (Genesis 2:2, 3) and was made for all men (Mark 2:27; Isa. 56:6-7).

The weekly Sabbaths [containing the seal of Yahuwah], new moon day, and the yearly feasts are to be calculated by the luni-solar calendar. Each month is lunar and the weekly cycle restarts with each New Moon. The lunations are tied to the solar year by the spring equinox. The true calendar utilizes the dual-action of the sun and the moon. All false calendars use strictly lunar or solar calendation.

The man of sin, the papacy, has thought to change times and laws, the calendar of the Creator, (Daniel 7:25) and has mislead almost all Christendom in regard to the fourth commandment. We find prophecy of an end-time reform in this respect (Isaiah 56:1, 2; 1 Peter 1:5; Revelation 14:12). In the works symbolized by the three messages of Revelation 14, the last one is Sabbath reform, to complete the readiness of true believers for the return of Yahushua (Isaiah 58:12-14).

GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT

The Holy Spirit gives gifts to members of the ekklesia for its growth (1 Corinthians 12; Ephesians 4)

SPEAKING IN TONGUES / OTHER LANGUAGES

The true “gift of tongues” always glorifies Yahuwah and is only given for the purpose of communicating divine truths to those who otherwise could not understand the words being spoken. By contrast, the sounds uttered by many who today claim to have the “gift of tongues” is nothing but meaningless babblings. The sounds made are not distinct languages and they certainly do not instruct any in truth and righteousness. In fact, the glossolalia, or “speaking in tongues,” practiced by most people today directly contradicts the guidelines given in Scripture that reveal whether it is genuine or false. “But shun profane and idle babblings, for they will increase to more impiety.” (See 2 Timothy 2:16.)

THE STATE OF THE DEAD

The grave (sheol in Hebrew; hades in Greek) is a place of darkness in which there is not work, device, wisdom, or knowledge (Ecclesiastes 9:10). The state to which we are reduced by death is one of silence, inactivity, and unconsciousness (Psalms 146:4; Ecclesiastes 9:5; Daniel 12:2).

At the return of Yahushua, the righteous dead will be raised to life and given immortality; this is the first resurrection. The wicked dead remain in their graves until the second resurrection at the end of the millennium (Revelation 20:4-6).

THE EXCITING TIMES AHEAD

At the last trump, the living righteous will be immortalized and with the resurrected righteous, caught up to meet Yahushua in the air (1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17). These will accompany Yahushua as he returns to the earth where he, along with the redeemed, will rule the unrepentant survivors (Zech.14:16 & Isaiah 24:6).

A new heaven and new earth shall spring from the ashes of the old (2 Peter 3:7-12) with New Jerusalem as its capital. Here, the redeemed will reign with Yahushua for 1,000 years and thereafter dwell in their eternal inheritance (2 Peter 3:13; Psalms 37:11, 29; Matthew 5:5).

At the end of 1,000 years, the wicked dead will be raised to life and will surround New Jerusalem (Revelation 20:9). Fire from heaven will consume them “root and branch” (Malachi 4:1) in total annihilation (Obadiah 15, 16). This is the final destruction (2 Thessalonians 1:9) and everlasting punishment (Matthew 25:46); this is the perdition of wicked men. The earth will finally be purged entirely from sin.

BUT-- BACK TO THE SOMBER PRESENT...

Today, no church/denomination adheres to the above beliefs entirely, fulfilling Isaiah 4:1. "Seven" women (7 symbolically indicates completeness, e.g. 7 days of creation, 7 last plagues, etc.). ALL “women” (Churches are often symbolized as women in Scripture Rev.12:1 vs. Rev. 17:3.) “shall take hold of one man” (ALL churches now profess to be “Christian.”) “saying, We will eat our own bread” (They reject the true Bread - Yahushua, John 6:51, for their own false doctrines and traditions, Isaiah 8:20.) “and wear our own apparel” (They reject the pure, white robe of his righteousness, preferring their own works and self-righteousness, Isaiah 61:10; Rev. 3:4, 5, 18). “Only let us be called by Thy name” (Despite their rebellion, they crave recognition as part of his ekklesia.) “to take away our reproach” (to hide their disgrace as TOTALLY NAKED harlot daughters of Babylon! - Rev.17:5).

WHAT MUST WE DO?

Those who "follow the Lamb" (Revelation 14:4) and adhere to Scripture alone as the infallible rule of faith have no choice but to worship Him in spirit and truth in the privacy of their homes, away from the fallen, apostate churches - the synagogue of Satan. In the Book of Revelation, Yahuwah calls and labels such entities as "Babylon.” He further commands His people to come out of such entities before He pours His plagues on Babylon -“for her sins have reached unto heaven.” (Revelation 18:1-5)
