*Time has been set back one year to adjust for House of Yudah's membership into the UN in 1949 CE. Originally I had the time set at 1948 CE when they became a nation, but I see now that they did not put themselves under the Babylonian king’s thumb until 1949 CE. In Yirmiyah 25:12 and Daniy'Yah 9:2, YaHVeH has established a 70 year time line for the king of Babylon to be destroyed.

1 Corinthians: 13:12:  For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

Scripture is taken from KJV and edited to remove blasphemous names (Rev. 17:3), words and titles and to give a more Iybriy/Hebrew rooted understanding; edited also because the "Mother of Harlots" has inserted these names to cover up the names of YaHVeH/יהוה and HIS Ben Yahvshua/יהושׁוּע, and to counterfeit a Babylonian Greco-Roman "god", "lord" "Jesus" "Christ"…etc. and promote its demonic idolatrous pagan customs and "holidays" by replacing YaHVeH's Sabbaths (Dan. 7:25). All commentaries, historical sources as well as any other transliteration of scripture that might be used will be edited and noted to indicate that it has been edited.

Who are These Men? There is no doubt these two men are literal human beings, not some concocted fantasy in a false prophets mind. Just as Eli`Yah and Yahvchanan/Yahn/Yohn who immersed were real literal human beings so will the two witnesses be.

When the two witnesses are revealed they will come in the ruach and power of Mosheh and Eliyah:

Mattith'Yah/Matthew: 17:2: And was transfigured before them: and His face did shine as the sun, and His raiment was white as the light.

Matith'Yah: 17:3: And, observe, there appeared to them Mosheh and Eliyah talking with Him.

In Mattith`Yah 17:2 the transfiguration that the limmudiym/taught ones witnessed of Yahshua was to reveal to us when the men who are to come in the ruach and power of Mosheh and Eliyah are to appear on the world scene. Where else in scripture does it describe Yahshua Mashiyach looking like this? You’ll find it in Revelation:

Revelation/Raz Galah/Secrets Revealed: 1:13: And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like to the Ben of Adam, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the chest with a golden girdle.

Re: 1:14: His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and His eyes were as a flame of fire;

Re: 1:15: And His feet like to fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and His voice as the sound of many waters.

Re: 1:16: And He had in His right hand seven stars: and out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword: and His countenance was as the sun shines in his strength.

When Yahvchanan who immersed came, Yahshua was still in the flesh and He had not risen from the dead yet. That is another clue our Savior was giving us about the ones that will come before He returns to this earth, these men will come to make all things straight:

Mattith`Yah: 17:9: And as they came down from the mountain, Yahshua charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Ben of Adam be risen again from the dead.

Mattith`Yah: 17:10: And His limmudiym  asked Him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Eliyah must first come?

Mattith`Yah: 17:11: And Yahshua answered and said to them, Eliyah truly shall first come, and restore all things.

The vision wasn’t to be told to anybody until our Rabbi Yahshua rose from the dead. Why did Yahshua want His limmudiym to wait before they revealed this vision to anyone? Because our Rabbi was letting us know today, that another or others are still to come before He returns the second time.

Why did Mosheh and Eliyah appear in the transfiguration with Yahshua our Rabbi? Mosheh and EliYah represented two things:

1)  The Law/Torah (Mosheh) and

2)  The Nebiyiym/Foretellers (Eliyah).

When the two witnesses, of Revelation chapter 11 are revealed to the world, they will be the only ones allowed to preach and proclaim the true Glad Tidings. They will be the only ones allowed to preach the ONE AND ONLY TRUE MESSAGE, the world will HATE them, including “many” deceived Christians and Yudiym  (Mat. 24:5). Why will “many” Christians HATE these men? Because they will be contradicting what “many” Christians have been taught! “Many” Christians have erred in ruach of their understanding of the New Covenant (Yashayah/Isa. 29:24). “Many” Christians don’t even understand the New Covenant. They don’t understand the New Covenant because they don’t understand the Old Covenant.

Read articles: 6) Is YaHVeH's Law/Torah ruach or physical? and

4) What is the "yoke" Kepha spoke of in Acts 15?

When these two witnesses speak there will be no doubt to what the truth is.

This is what I believe part of the message will be that these two witnesses will be proclaiming to in Yahvshalam and the world (Yirmiyah chapters 4 - 7): They will be telling the entire world to repent from sin; sin is the transgression of the Ruach Law/Torah (1 Yahn 3:4 and Shemoth/Exodus 20). They will be telling people to believe in the name of Yahshua and not "Jesus" (Rev. 3:8). They will be telling people to accept the sacrifice of Yahshua Mashiyach so that His blood can cover their sins. They will be telling people to repent from keeping pagan customs and enter into Yahshua Mashiyach's “rest” by keeping His Sabbaths (V'yakra/Lev. 23; Iybriyiym/Hebrews 4). They will be telling people to be immersed so they can receive the gift of the Kodesh Ruach. All the while they are proclaiming this message they will also be doing miracles. There will be no doubt where these men get their authority. Unfortunately, just as our Rabbi did so many wonderful miracles, many still did not believe, most of the people that did not believe were the religious  and Political leaders of Yahshua’s day. You can believe that the same condition and attitude will be with the Christian, "Jewish" and Islamic leaders of today.

The two witnesses are mentioned in the writings of the nebiyiym:

Daniel/Daniy'Yah:8:13: Then I heard one kadosh speaking, and another kadosh said to that certain kadosh which spoke, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the kodesh/set apart and the host to be trodden under foot?

Revelation:11:3: And I will give power to My two witnesses, and they shall naba/foretell a thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.

Yirmi'Yah/Jeremiah:4:16: Make you all mention to the nations; observe, publish against Yahvshalam, that watchers come from a far country, and give out their voice against the cities of Yahudah.

Yesha'Yah/Isaiah:62:6: I have set watchmen on your walls, O Yahvshalam, which shall never hold their tongue day nor night: you all that make mention of YaHVeH, keep not silence,
Yeshayah:62:7: And give HIM no rest, till HE establish, and till HE make Yahvshalam a praise in the earth.

It is recorded in the scriptures that the children of Yisrael have always wanted to be like the nations around them. They were and still are stiff necked. Eliyah confronted the false prophets of his day. These same false Baal prophets exist today, but under a new name called Christianity and Judaism (Mat. 24:5; 2 Cor. 11:14; Rev.13:11; 12:9). Not that being a Messianic the way the chosen Messengers taught is wrong (Acts 11:26), but it is Christianity and Judaism that is in sin and error. It is clear, you must come out of Christianity, Judaism and Islam and all man made religions in order to be delivered. I would much rather be called a "believer"/2nd coming Messianic, a member of the Body of Yahshua kept in YaHVeH's name, then a "Christian".

First let's begin with Eliyah and his confrontation with the prophets of Baal who thought they were serving the Elohiym of Yisrael. You can read the entire account in 1 Melekiym chapter 18. I will give a few of the scriptures that will make the point:

1 Melekiym/1 Kings:18:4: For it was so, when Iyzebel/Yezebel cut off the nebiyiym of YaHVeH, that Obadyah took a hundred nebiyiym, and hid them by fifty in a cave, and fed them with bread and water.)

The nebiyiym of YaHVeH had to hide for their lives. Iyzebel was a wicked and evil woman that wanted no part of YaHVeH and HIS way of life. This has also happen through the "Mother of Harlots." We can now see through history that it was through the Roman Catholic in the west/Orthodox in the east and Protestant "churches" that many people were murdered and persecuted, and had to run and hide or their lives would have been taken (Rev. 13:11; 17:5). One of the reasons the USA was formed was so that those who were suffering from the persecution of the "Mother of Harlots" would have a refuge of safety.

1 Melekiym/1 Kings:18:17: And it came to pass, when Ahab/Ach-ab saw Eliyah, that Achab said to him, Are you he that troubles Yisrael?

Verse 17 is a clear example of how blinding sin is. The people of the land knew the great miracles that YaHVeH did through Eliyah, but yet Achab still had the nerve to speak to the nabiy of YaHVeH in this manner. This was the same attitude the Pharisee's, Scribes and Sadducee's had. They witness the great miracles that Yahshua did and yet they were still brazen enough to say He was possessed by a demon (Mat. 12:24).

1 Melekiym:18:18: And he answered, I have not troubled Yisrael; but you, and your father's house, in that you all have forsaken the commandments of YaHVeH, and you have followed Baaliym.

Verse 18 is now speaking of the false Christian prophets (Mattith`Yah 24:5) that have forgotten to teach the people YaHVeH's Ruach Law/Torah (Shemoth 20; Hoshea 4:6).

1 Melekiym:18:19: Now therefore send, and gather to me all Yisrael to mount Carmel, and the prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat at Iyzebel's table.
1
Melekiym:18:20: So Achab sent to all the children of Yisrael, and gathered the prophets together to mount Carmel.

Now please notice in verse 19 that the prophet's of Baal was 450 and the prophets of the groves were 400. They were way more prophets of Baal (Matthew 24:5) then the nebiyiym of YaHVeH.

1 Melekiym:18:21: And Eliyah came to all the people, and said, How long hop you all between two opinions?  If YaHVeH be Elohiym, follow HIM: but if Baal, then follow him.  And the people answered him not a word.
1
Melekiym:18:22: Then said Eliyah to the people, I, even I only, remain a nabiy of YaHVeH; but Baal's prophets are four hundred and fifty men.

You see the children of Yisrael were hopping forward and backward between two opinions. The Messenger Ya'akob erroneously called "James" in the KJV dealt with the same attitude/ruach in his day:

{Ya'akob/James:1:6: But let him ask in belief, nothing wavering. For he that wavers is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
Ya'akob:1:7: For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Rabbi.
Ya'akob:1:8: A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

Ya'akob:4:8: Draw near to YaHVeH, and HE will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, all you sinners; and purify your hearts, all you double minded.}

This mixing of pagan Baal worship with the worship of YaHVeH started with the children of Yisrael and has carried on to this day. Now Eliyah was calling down these prophets of Baal and challenging them to a dual. Here is a quote from Jamieson/Fausset/Brown A Commentary CRITICAL, EXPERIMENTAL, AND PRACTICAL VOLUME I (edited):

21. Eliyah came to all the people, and said, How long hop you all...? They had long been attempting to conjoin the service of Elohiym with that of Baal. It was an impracticable union; and the people were so struck with a sense of their own folly, or dread of the king's displeasure, that they "answered not a word." Eliyah proposed to decide for them the controversy between Elohiym and Baal by a appeal, not to the authority of the law, for that would have no weight, but by a visible token form Shamayim. As fire was the element over which Baal was supposed to preside, he proposed that two bullocks would be slain, and placed on separate altars of wood - the one for Baal and the other for Elohiym - and of whichever the fire should descend to consume it, the event would determine the true EL, whom it was their duty to serve. It is evident from this language that the mass of the people, ignorant and strongly addicted to idolatry, considered Baal as identical with YaHVeH; while the worshipers of YaHVeH, on the other hand, maintained His exclusive title to divine respects. The controversy, therefore, did not consist in a direct opposition between the worship of YaHVeH and that of Baal; for the latter party, like the heathen in general, tolerated the worship of other deities along with their own favourite idols; but, as Hengstenberg states it ('Pentateuch' i., pp. 170, 171), 'the persecution was directed against those who, like Eliyah, bore powerful testimony against the union of what was irreconcilable, who loudly maintained that YaHVeH identified with Baal was no longer YaHVeH. The proposal which Eliyah made from this point of view, that they should see whether YaHVeH was Elohiym, or Baal, the priests of Baal, from their point of view, understood to be, whether YaHVeH-Baal was Elohiym, or YaHVeH in perfect exclusiveness. The question that he put before making his proposal plainly implies, that in the popular opinion these heterogeneous religious elements were blended in one' (cf. Hos. ii.11).

End quote.

As you can clearly see it is nothing new that people, the children of Yisrael included have always wanted to mix paganism in with the worship of the true Elohiym. But
YaHVeH will not accept this! It is a lie and confusion! "Many" (Mattith`Yah 24:5) Christians already know and understand that many of the practices they keep come from paganism; it has not be hidden from them! You can go to any local library and find this information out.

You can read the rest of the story of how Eliyah proved the prophets of Baal as false (
Mattith`Yah 24:5). As I have said, the prophets of Baal go under the name of Christian (Rev. 13:11) today. That is the nice name I call them. YaHVeH is not so nice in what HE calls them. HE calls them "MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH (Rev. 17:5)."

Now we will move to Yirmi'Yah chapter 10. It is clear from this chapter we see our modern day "Christmas Tree" is being spoken of:


Yirmi'Yah/Jeremiah:10:1: Hear you all the word which YaHVeH speaks to you, O house of Yisrael:
Yirmiyah:10:2: Thus said YaHVeH, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of shameh; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
Yirmiyah:10:3: For the customs of the people are vain: for one cuts a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.
Yirmiyah:10:4: They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.

Now notice verse 2 it says "...Learn not the way of the heathen..."
"Many" (Mattith`Yah 24:5) Christians know that Christmas comes from paganism but still justify their keeping of it. This is not acceptable to YaHVeH! You must stop these pagan practices and keep HIS Sabbaths. By keeping YaHVeH's Sabbaths you will continue to walk in the truth.

Yechizkiyah/Ezekiel:8:14: Then he brought me to the door of the gate of YaHVeH's house which was toward the north; and, observe, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.
Yechizkiyah:8:15: Then said he to me, Have you seen this, O ben of adam?  turn you yet again, and you shall see greater abominations than these.
Yechizkiyah:8:16: And he brought me into the inner court of YaHVeH's house, and, observe, at the door of the heykal of YaHVeH, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty five men, with their backs toward the heykal of YaHVeH, and their faces toward the east; and they worshiped the sun toward the east.

These verses are clearly speaking of today's "Easter" services. It is on Easter that people are waking up early in the morning to watch the sun rise in the East; it is called Easter sun rise services. People, including the children of Yisrael have always wanted to mix these pagan customs in with the worship of the Elohiym of Yisrael. YaHVeH will not tolerated it!

These services take place every year in Yahvshalam, in all the traditional Christian pagan temples that are built. One of those pagan temples is called the "Church of Nativity." No doubt when the House of Yudah (when they repent and call on YaHVeH`s name through Yahshua they can be called the House of Yahudah) rebuilds the temple/heykal (Yir. 7:4; Yech. 42:20 and Rev. 11:1-2), because they have turned their back on YaHVeH and don't even accept their Mashiyach Yahshua, they will continue their corrupt practices and even allow abominable worship.


This brings us to these two foretelling`s/chazah:

Yesha'Yah/Isaiah:24:5: The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants of it; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.

Daniel: 7:25: And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the kaddiysh/kadoshiym of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

We can now clearly see through 20/20 hind sight (history, Daniel 12:4) that the Roman Catholic/Orthodox Church has changed (beginning with Constantine I) these "times" (seasons) and "laws".  Now that you know this truth you do not have to continue in this error (Yeshayah 29:24) and sin. YaHVeH is calling HIS first fruits out of these lies:

Revelation/Secrets Revealed:18:4: And I heard another voice from Shamayim, saying, Come out of her, MY people, that you all be not partakers of her sins, and that you all receive not of her plagues.

    01/04/6998* [5777] 6th day of the week [03/31/17] We are truly living in some evil times. Remember what our Rabbi Yahvshua said about the children: Mattith`Yah/Matthew:18:...
