*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/עיהושׁוּ, 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).

The Body of Yahshua began almost 2000 years (according to 7000 Year Extrapolated Timeline Yahshua was hung on the stake in 5010 FCA, which is 1,987 years ago, we are in the year 6997* FCA) ago when our Rabbi was raised from the dead three days later as He said (Mat. 12:40). He ascended to Shamayim (Acts 1; Rev. 1; 4; 5) and than on one of YaHVeH's annual Sabbaths/Appointed Times (V'yakra/Leviticus 23) called the Feast of First Fruits/Weeks (not by coincidence) the first few believer's received YaHVeH's Kodesh Ruach (Acts 2; Yahvel/Yael/Yoel 2:28-29). This was the embryo stage of the Body of Yahshua, the full term of the Woman is near and the entire Body will be born; she will go into "Great Tribulation" (Rev. 12; Mat. 24:21)!

People are very confused and deceived (Mat. 13:1 – 30; 24:5; Rev. 12:9; 13:11) on who the believers and followers (Yeshayah/Isa. 8:16, 20; Rev. 12:17; 14:12) of Yahshua the Mashiyach are today and who they were in the beginning. But the majority of what you see and hear broadcast on radio, television, in the news and in movies of who the followers of the Messi`Yah are, is not what the Kodesh/Set a Part Scriptures reveals.

Let me say this, I am a Messianic Yahudiy and not a Christian or an adherent to “Judaism”. I’m not a “Jew” and do not desire to be called a “Jew”, which is a slang and derogatory name given to those, who are of the tribe of Yahudah. As a believer in Yahvshua/עיהושׁוּ/Yahvsha/יהושׁע as the One, who came in the flesh as witnessed about in the Messianic Writings (erroneously called “Gospels”), which include the letters from the chosen emissaries and the book of Revelation/Raz Galah/Secrets Revealed, I preferred to be called a Messianic/Mashiyachiy/Maw-shee-ack-ee  for short or 2nd coming Messianic Yahudiy to be clear. We are rooted in the Iybriy/Hebrew foundation of Scripture and the life and purpose of Yahshua the Mashiyach’s first coming and second coming.

Now the Kodesh Scriptures reveals here a little there little (Yeshayah/Isa. 28:9-11), what tribe the chosen ones came from as well as what tribe the Mashiyach came from, which also reveals why members of the Body of Yahshua are Yahudiy Messianic’s and not Christian (Mat. 13:1 - 30; 24:5; Rev. 13:11; 12:9; 17:5).

First let’s go to the Kodesh Scriptures that reveal what tribe the Mashiyach would come from:

B`reshiyth/Genesis: 29:35:  And she conceived again, and bare a ben: and she said, Now will I praise YaHVeH: therefore she called his name Yahudah; and left bearing.

Yahudah means “Praise YaHVeH”.

Now I’m not sure, but at the time of the birth of Yahudah, I don’t believe Ya’akob/“Jacob” knew that the Mashiyach was coming out of this tribe, just like he didn’t understand Yoseph’s dream right away (B`reshiyth 37:10-11). I don’t believe he received the understanding of what tribe our Rabbi was coming out of until Ya’akob was close to death, when he was in Mitsrayim/Egypt and called all his children to hear what barukah and tribal characteristic they would receive. Here is the barukah/“blessing”/prospering that Yahudah received:

B`reshiyth/Genesis: 49:8:  Yahudah, you are he whom your brethren shall praise: your hand shall be in the neck of your enemies; your father's children shall bow down before you.

B`reshiyth: 49:9:  Yahudah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my ben, you are gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?

B`reshiyth: 49:10:  The scepter shall not depart from Yahudah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and to Him shall the gathering of the people be.

B`reshiyth: 49:11:  Binding His foal to the vine, and His ass’ colt to the choice vine; He washed His garments in wine, and His clothes in the blood of grapes:

B`reshiyth: 49:12:  His eyes shall be red with wine, and His teeth white with milk.

After the death of melek/king Shaul (from tribe of Benyamin, chosen to punish the Yisraeliym) the first melek that the Word of YaHVeH appointed over Yisrael after they disobediently asked for one (1 Shemuel/1 Samuel 8), the Word of YaHVeH chose the next melek from the tribe of Yahudah, not by coincidence but to fulfill Scripture (B`reshiyth 49:8 – 12; Mat. 1:20 – 22). The Word of YaHVeH, who later became Yahshua the Mashiyach (Yahvchanan/Yahn/Yohn 1:1 – 5); told Shemuel to go to the house of Yishay/“Jesse” of the tribe of Yahudah and anoint David to be the new melek (1 Shemuel 16:1 – 13; 1 Dibrey ha`Yamiym/1 Chronicles 2:3 – 15). It was from the tribe of Yahudah that all twelve tribes were ruled by up to and until 1 Melekiym/1 Kings 11, which describes David’s ben/“son” Shelomo/“Solomon” and his dive into disobedience. At this time the Word of YaHVeH determined to divide the twelve tribes into two houses. Read the story for yourself.

The next scripture that verifies the Iybriy/Hebrew Yahudiy/Yahudee roots of the Body of Yahshua, which is the Assembly of YaHVeH, is found in Yeshayah chapter 5:

 02/09/6997* [5776] 7th day of the week/Shabbat [05/14/16]

Yeshayah/Isaiah: 5:1:  Now will I sing to my well beloved a song of my beloved touching his vineyard. My well beloved ha`Yah has a vineyard in a very fruitful hill:

Yeshayah: 5:2:  And HE fenced it, and gathered out the stones of it, and planted it with the choicest vine, and built a tower in the middle of it, and also made a winepress in it: and HE looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth poison berries/beushiym.

Yeshayah: 5:3:  And now, O inhabitants of Yahvshalam, and men of Yahudah, judge, I ask you, between ME and MY vineyard.

Verse 3 is the verse that gives authority to the men of Yahudah to judge YaHVeH’s vineyard. Who is the ALMIGHTIES vineyard? Well, the Kodesh Scriptures will tell you, if you read down a little farther you’ll read:

Yeshayah: 5:7: For the vineyard of  יהוה of hosts is the house of Yisrael, and the men of Yahudah HIS pleasant plant: and HE looked for judgment, but observe oppression; for righteousness, but observe a cry.

So verse 7 clearly tells us, who YaHVeH’s vineyard is, it is the House of Yisrael; but the verse goes on and tells us, who the men of Yahudah are as well. They are “HIS pleasant plant”.

When Yahshua ha`Mashiyach our Rabbi chose His twelve limmudiym (taught ones Yeshayah 8:16, 20) it would be from His own tribe that He would choose them, so that this Scripture would be fulfilled (Yahn 13:18; 17:12; 19:24, 28, 36):

Mattith`Yah/Matthew: 26:54: How then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?

Mattith`Yah/Matthew: 10:1:  And when He had called to Him His twelve limmudiym, He gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

This is why the emissary Shaul/“Paul” said what he said in Romans chapter 11:

Romans: 11:17:  And if some of the branches be broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them partake of the root and fatness of the olive tree…

Page 4

Remember Yahudah is YaHVeH’s “pleasant plant”, which the emissary Shaul staying in the guide lines of Scriptures (Luke 24:44; 1 Cor. 14:32; Eph. 2:20) says is an olive tree and we as we are called into the Body of Yahshua are the branches, some of us natural and some of us wild, then who is the Trunk of the plant that the wild olive branches are grafted into? Well these verses of Scriptures tells us:

Revelation: 5:5:  And one of the elders said to me, Weep not: observe, the Lion of the tribe of Yahudah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals of it.

Revelation: 5:6:  And I observed, and, look, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Ruachiym of YaHVeH sent forth into all the earth.

Verse 6, who is the Lamb that ALMIGHTY YaHVeH, has chosen:

Yahvchanan/Yahn/Yohn: 1:29: the next day Yahn sees Yahshua coming to him, and said, Behold the Lamb of YaHVeH, which takes away the sin of the world.

So we can clearly and conclusively extrapolate that Yahshua is the Lamb, which means He is the Lion of tribe of Yahudah, the Root of David and therefore the Trunk of the Olive Tree.

In the letter to the Iybriyiym/Hebrews the writer; who I believe to be Shaul; confirms again of what tribe the Mashiyach came from:

Iybriyiym/Hebrews: 7:14:  For it is evident that our Rabbi sprang out of Yahudah; of which tribe Mosheh spoke nothing concerning kohen-hood.

The Kodesh Scriptures make it clear that the Body of Yahshua, which is the Assembly and Called Out/Ekklesia of YaHVeH is of an Iybriy/Ee-bree/Hebrew Yahudiy character and not a Babylonian-Greco-Roman-Pagan-Gentile character (Mat. 13:1 -30; 24:5; Rev. 13:11; 12:9; 17:5), because once you are grafted into the Olive Tree as a wild olive branch, you no longer have the attitude and or character of the wild olive branch/gentile (Rom. 6:6; Eph. 4:22; Col 3:9), but you are now a new creation (2 Cor. 5:17; Gal. 6:15) in the Messi`Yah Yahshua. You have put your old pagan customs and habits away (Gal. 4:9) and no longer consider yourself a gentile but of Yisrael and are now a Messianic Yahudiy. You now praise and proclaim the name of YaHVeH/YaHWeH/YaHuWaH/YaHUaH through HIS Ben Yahvshua/Yahvsha and are kept in the ALMIGHTIES name.

Messianic Description

12/15/6994* [5774] 7th day of the week/Shabbat [02/15/14]

First of all the term “Messianic” is a fairly new phrase to describe those who are members of the Body of Yahshua, which came about some time in the middle of the 19th century. In the Messianic writings phrases or names used to call or describe the Body of Yahshua were names like: Nazarene's (Acts 24:5), “this way” (Acts 9:2), Galileans and “many” (Mat. 24:5) say “Christians” (Acts 26:28; 1 Kepha 4:16) but I don’t believe this to be true; they might have been called “Mashiyachiy/Mashiyachiym/ Mashiyachian” but not “Christians”. The description “Christian” became a title used from those counterfeiting (Rev. 12:9; 13:11; 17:1-6) the Iybriy/Hebrew from the tribe of Yahudah of the root of David Mashiyach. It is absolutely important that members of the Body of Yahshua be set apart differently (Rev. 18:4) from “Christianity” and “Judaism”. The title “Judaism” describes those that don’t believe that the Messiyah has come and or the rejection of Yahshua the Mashiyach’s first coming.

Messianic's are what Yahshua's chosen messengers were when they walked on the earth with Him. They were all raised up and rooted in Iybriy/Hebrew and of the House of Yahudah (Yashayah 5:3). Even though Yahshua’s chosen messengers were originally raised up in a mixture of Essen (this group was the exception), Sadducean, Pharisaic and Yahudah of Galiylah/Galilee influence (this group was another exception see Yosephus Bk. 18 1:3 – 6), they were still rooted in the teaching of YaHVeH’s Commandments (Rev. 12:17; 14:12), which included HIS Sabbaths (Yashayah 8:16, 20):

-- Revised Standard edited.

Nachum: 1:15: Behold, on the mountains the feet of him who brings glad tidings, who proclaims shalom! Keep your feasts, O Yahudah, fulfill your vows, for never again shall the wicked come against you, he is utterly cut off.

 

When Yahshua came He cleared up all the misunderstandings and misapplications to YaHVeH’s Torah (Mat. 5:17 – 19; 11:28 – 30), which Pharisee’s and Sadducee’s had clouded up by adding and or taking away from YaHVeH’s Torah, on top of allowing political influences to pervert their judgments (Mat. 23). Don’t get me wrong, of necessity some things would have to change in certain application found in the Torah now that Yahshua the Mashiyach had come (Iybriyiym/Hebrews 9; Gal. 3:24). Primarily those changes would come after the destruction of the 2nd heykal, also called Cyrus’ and Herod I’s temple.

The primary change would be the offering of animals to YaHVeH, now the name of Yahvshua/Yahvsha the Messiyah is to be the offering (Yahn 14:13), because He is the Lamb of YaH (Yahvhanan/Yahn/Yohn 1:29; Mat. 26:27-28), the Bread from Shamayim (Yahn 6) and the Unleavened Bread eaten (Mat. 26:26); belief in Him is what satisfies those commandments; I’m not saying you shouldn’t eat a small piece of unleavened bread and drink a little bit of red wine at Passover on the 14th  of the 1st Chodesh, because these are the New Covenant symbols now and if we believe in Him we are commanded to partake of them (Yahn 6:51, 54).

Page 6

Another change would be of stoning people to death for transgression against YaHVeH’s Torah (Yahn 8:3 – 11); it would not be the responsibility of the members of Yahshua’s Body to take care of sinful behavior in that manner at this time. Now if you are found transgressing and the sin does not warrant the death penalty, a brother or sister is to quietly go to them and gently rebuke them (Mat. 18:15 – 17; Gal. 6:1), and if that doesn’t work they are to bring a couple of witnesses with them and rebuke them again, and if that doesn’t work then the brother or sister would have to go to the entire called out assembly and the transgressor would have to be shamed before the entire assembly and then be put out until they repent. If someone commits a transgression worthy of the death penalty, then we have to look to what Kepha did when a husband and wife member did when they were caught lying about money they withheld (Acts 5:1 – 11). Some times it is necessary to turn the member over to the civil authorities as Yahshua said in Matith’Yah 18:15 – 17.

There was another issue that had to be dealt with in the Body of Yahshua after the Messiyah had ascended to YaHVeH’s Right Hand in Shamayim; and that was the entrance of goyiym/gentile converts into the Body of Yahshua (Acts 15; 1 Cor. 10). Now they are no longer gentiles and they themselves cannot refer to themselves as gentiles once they had become converts and members of the Body of Yahshua. But the difference was that the gentile converts had not been raised up in the Torah of YaHVeH all their lives, which would mean their conscience to certain applications in YaHVeH’s Torah would not affect their conscience in the same way a Yahudiy believer, who was raised up in Torah all his or her life would be affected. Don’t get me wrong the gentile converts had to give up and repent from their pagan practices and enter into YaHVeH’s Sabbaths and keep the commandments placed INSIDE the ark, and in the process of time learn to discern between clean and unclean food, and I don’t mean just those foods that were offered to idols (Romans 14).

In order to be of the truth you must come out of “Judaism(for the most part they keep Babylonian, Talmud, Hillel and Kabbala traditions of men, who have removed the names and replaced them with blasphemous names) and Christianity (for the most part they keep Babylonian, Greco-Roman, Gregorian Calendar Pagan traditions of men, who have removed the names and replaced them with blasphemous names and counterfeit the Hebrew/Iybriy Messiyah) (Rev. 13:11; 17:5; 18:4) and become a 2nd coming Messianic (Body of Yahshua). A 2nd coming Messianic is taught from an Iybriy of the Tribe of Yahudah of the root of David Messiyah (Rev. 5:4), and call on the name of YaHVeH through HIS Mashiyach and Ben Yahshua, and order your life to the best of your understanding according to YaHVeH’s Torah through belief in Yahshua the Mashiyach, T’hiyliym, writings of the ancient foretellers/nebiyiym and Messianic writings, according to what the new covenant messengers/emissaries wrote to be the foundation of our understanding (Luke 24:27; Eph. 2:19-22).

Now, let me get back to what proof I have that the first believers and followers/limmudiym of Yahshua were not called “Christian”. Well, the first evidence I provide is the book of Matith’Yah/Matthew. It is well known that his record of the Messiyah and those events surrounding Him were originally written in Iybriy and later on translated into Greek (Refer to Foxe`s Book of Martyrs chapter 1 under Matthew). So, we know that Yahshua’s chosen new covenant messengers/emissaries all spoke Iybriy and I’m sure some spoke Aramaic and Greek as the emissary Shaul did (Yahn 5:2; Acts 21:40; 22:2; 26:14).

02/23/6997* [5776] 7th day of the week/Shabbat [05/28/16]

As the news and message of Yahshua the Messiyah and the miracles He did grew among the population of the House of Yahudah, the gentiles were beginning to notice (Luke 4:14). Now sense the gentiles were not rooted in Iybriy Torah and customs that were kept by the Yahudiy they would not be able to associate Yahshua’s miracles with Kodesh Scripture (Luke 24:44), but with their pagan customs (Acts 14:1 – 18 notice verse 12 especially). Understand the gentiles worship Devils/Demons/Satan and his cohorts (I Cor. 10:20) and Satan is a counterfeiter/liar (2 Cor. 11:14; Rev. 12:9; 13:11).

It was through the gentiles who were beginning to take notice of Yahshua that began building their own belief system through their pagan customs. Now, did all the gentiles, who noticed Yahshua and the miracles He did do this? No. The “many” (Mat. 24:5) did, but the few did not (Acts 10; Rom. 11). Those few gentiles who really wanted the truth and nothing but the truth looked for it through the Yahudiym and going to where they congregated especially on the weekly 7th day Shabbat (Acts 13:42). Now it was in Antioch that those who claimed to follow the Iybriy from the tribe of Yahudah of the root of David Mashiyach were first called “Christians” (Acts 11:26). Now, this verse does not say that the followers of Messiyah were calling themselves by this title, but it was the population and probably the authorities of the city that were calling them by this title.  Did the emissaries accept this title at first; I believe they most likely did. Did they continue to accept it as time went on, I doubt it. Especially when we consider what the emissary Shaul said in Acts chapter 20 especially verses 29 and 30:

Acts/Ma’aseh: 20:29:  For I know this that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.

Acts/Ma’aseh: 20:30:  Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away limmudiym/taught ones after them.

Understand when the emissary Shaul called these men “grievous wolves” he was not doing this out of ignorance. Shaul knew the Kodesh Scriptures very well (Acts 26:6-7; Gal. 1:11-12) and he was naming those men after what the nebiyiym/foretellers Yirmiyah and Daniel foretold concerning the pagan beast empires that would come up and until Rome arrives and when the Mashiyach would appear.

Yirmiyah: 5:6: Wherefore a lion out of the forest shall slay them, and a wolf of the evenings shall spoil them, a leopard shall watch over their cities: every one that goes out there shall be torn in pieces: because their transgressions are many, and their backslidings are increased.

Notice the “lion”, “leopard” and “wolf” are named, which are three of the four beast of Daniel 7. The fourth beast of Daniel 7 is the “wolf”, but it’s a mutant wolf because of the way it is described. This mutant “wolf” carries on into Revelation chapter 13.

Page 8

So when we come to Acts 26:28 when Agrippa says Shaul almost persuades him to become a “Christian”, he is using the accepted title that all the unbelieving gentiles and unbelieving Yudiym have called them. The same might be said for Kepha when he said:

1 Kepha: 4:16:  Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him magnify YaHVeH on this behalf.

But it is also possible Kepha did not say “Christian” at all but has been transliterated into this title, if you keep in mind what the gentiles named the emissaries Shaul and Bennabiy/Barnabas in Acts 14:12; he might have very well said they were Mashiyachiy/Mashiyachian.

To be continued.
