Grace and peace to you!

that we may no more be babes, tossed and carried about by every wind of the teaching, in the sleight of men, in craftiness, unto the artifice of leading astray

Eph 4:14

 I am afraid that many  today's teachers don't teach about deeds, works and obedience according to the Holy Scriptures. So I encourage and urge you to try to find the Biblical teaching  about deeds and works and obedience from the Bible.  
I hope that you want to be faithful to the truth,  not to the certain  false, traditional teachings of men.

your word is truth                             [John 17:17]


 And manifest also are the works of the flesh, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, strifes, emulations, wraths, rivalries, dissensions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkennesses, revellings, and such like, of which I tell you before, as I also said before, that those doing such things the kingdom of elohim shall not inherit, And the fruit of the spirit is: love, joy, peace, long-suffering, benignity, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: the law is not against such things And those who are messiah's, the flesh did crucify with the affections, and the desires, if we may live in the spirit, in the spirit also we may walk;
                                                                                         
 [Gal. 5:19-25]  [I use the term elohim, but I am not a Judaist. I believe that  'we are not under the law but under grace',  so I feel free to work on Sabbath and to eat pork.]

 A teacher teaches:  'elohim still judges us according to our works,  and not just our faith.'


 and they shall come forth; those who did the good things to a rising again of life, and those who committed the bad things to a rising again of judgment


John 5:29

 for, the son of man is about to come in the honor of his father, with his messengers, and then he will reward each, according to his deeds.

Matt. 16:27


and I saw the dead, small and great, standing before throne, and scrolls were opened, and another scroll was opened, which is that of the life, and the dead were judged out of the things written in the scrolls -- according to their works


Rev. 20:12 [There is the Greek word ergon in the verse Rev. 20:12,  translated as work in that verse, and according to a dictionary, ergon also means  an act, deed, thing done]


of each the work shall become manifest, for the day shall declare it, because in fire it is revealed, and the work of each, what kind it is, the fire shall prove;


1.Cr 3:13


for all of us it behoveth to be manifested before the tribunal of the messiah, that each one may receive the things [done] through the body, in reference to the things that he did, whether good or bad

2.Cr 5:10


and if on the father you do call, who without regard of persons is judging according to the work of each, in fear the time of your sojourn pass you


1Pet.  1:17


and he who is doing wrong shall receive what he did wrong, and there is no acceptance of persons.

Col 3:25


so let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and may glorify your father who is in the heavens.


Matt.  5:16


all things, therefore, whatever you  may will that men may be doing to you, so also do to them,

from the verse Matt. 7:12

'Not every one who is saying to me lord, lord, shall come into the kingdom of the heavens; but he who is doing the will of my father who is in the heavens.
Many will say to me in that day, lord, lord, have we not in your name prophesied? and in your name cast out demons? and in your name done many mighty things?
 and then I will acknowledge to them, that -- I never knew you, depart from me you who are working iniquity.
`Therefore, every one who  hears of me these words, and does  them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house upon the rock;
and the rain  descended, and the streams came, and the winds blew, and they beat on that house, and it fell not, for it had been founded on the rock.
`And every one who is hearing of me these words, and is not doing them, shall be likened to a foolish man who built his house upon the sand;
and the rain  descended, and the streams came, and the winds blew, and they beat on that house, and it fell, and its fall was great                          

   Matt. 7:21-27

But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again, and your reward will be great, and you shall be sons of the highest, because he is kind unto the ungracious and bad;

Luke 6:35


and why do you call me, lord, lord, and do not what I say?


Luke 6:46


So also you, when you may have done all the things directed you, say -- We are unprofitable servants, because that which we owed to do -- we have done.


Luke 17:10


for every one who is doing bad things hateth the light, and doth not come unto the light, that his works may not be detected;
but he who is doing the truth doth come to the light, that his works may be manifested, that in elohim they are having been wrought.'

John 3:20-21


the world is not able to hate you, but me it doth hate, because I testify concerning it that its works are bad


John 7:7


but in every nation he who is fearing him, and is working righteousness, is acceptable to him;


Acts 10:35


.. I was preaching to repent, and to turn back unto elohim, doing works worthy of repentance
 
  Acts  26:20

and the world  passes  away, and the lust of it,  and he who is doing the will of elohim, he  remains -- to the age                                                                                                                       1.John 2:17


if you know that he is righteous, know you that every one doing the righteousness, of him hath been begotten


1. John 2:29

Little children, let no one lead you astray; he who is doing the righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous

1. John 3:7

My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth 

1. John 3:18

 Beloved, be not you following that which is bad, but that which is good; he who is doing good, of elohim he is, and he who is doing bad hath not seen elohim

3.John 1:11

so that, my beloved, as you always obey, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, with fear and trembling your own deliverance work out,


Phl 2:12

for by grace  you are having been delivered, through faith, and this not of you -- of elohim the gift, not of works, that no one may boast;  for of him we are workmanship, created in messiah Jesus to good works, which elohim did before prepare, that in them we may walk.
                                                                                                                                       Eph. 2:8-10

and have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of the darkness and rather even convict,

Eph 5:11

 become watching, and strengthen the rest of the things that are about to die, for I have not found your works fulfilled before elohim

 Rev 3:2

happy are those doing his commands that the authority shall be theirs unto the tree of the life, and by the gates they may enter into the city;

Rev. 22:14

Elohim they profess to know, and in the works they deny, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work disapproved.

Tts 1:16

and let them learn -- ours also -- to be leading in good works to the necessary uses, that they may not be unfruitful.


Tts 3:14


But we are sure that the judgment of elohim is according to truth against them which commit such things And thinkest you this, o  man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that you shalt escape the judgment of elohim

Rom. 2:2-3

...in a day of wrath and of the revelation of the righteous judgment of elohim who shall render to each according to his works; to those, indeed, who in continuance of a good work, do seek glory, and honour, and incorruptibility -- life age-during;
and to those contentious, and disobedient, indeed, to the truth, and obeying the unrighteousness -- indignation and wrath,  tribulation and distress, upon every soul of man that is working the bad, both of Jew first, and of Greek

 Rom. 2:5-9

What, then, shall we say Avraham our father, to have found, according to flesh?
for if Avraham by works was  justified, he hath to boast -- but not before elohim;
for what doth the writing say. `And Avraham did believe elohim, and it was reckoned to him -- to righteousness;'
 and to him who is working, the reward is not reckoned of grace, but of debt;
 and to him who is not working, and is believing upon him who is  justifying the impious, his faith is reckoned -- to righteousness:
even as David also doth speak of the happiness of the man to whom elohim doth reckon righteousness apart from works:
Happy they whose iniquities were forgiven, and whose sins were covered;                     Rom. 4:2-7

for that which I work, I do not acknowledge; for not what I will, this I practise, but what I hate, this I do. And if what I do not will, this I do, I consent to the law that [it is] good,
 and now it is no longer I that work it, but the sin dwelling in me,
 for I have known that there doth not dwell in me, that is, in my flesh, good: for to will is present with me, and to work that which is right I do not find,
for the good that I will, I do not; but the bad that I do not will, this I practise.
And if what I do not will, this I do, it is no longer I that work it, but the sin that is dwelling in me. I find, then, the law, that when I desire to do what is right, with me the bad is present,
for I delight in the law of elohim  according to the inward man,
and I behold another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of the sin that [is] in my members.
A wretched man I [am]! who shall deliver me out of the body of this death?
 I thank elohim -- through Jesus messiah our lord; so then, I myself indeed with the mind do serve the law of elohim and with the flesh, the law of sin.

 Rom 7:15-25

So then also in the present time a remnant according to the choice of grace there hath been;
and if by grace, no more of works, otherwise the grace becometh no more grace; and if of works, it is no more grace, otherwise the work is no more work.

Rom 11:5-6


For those ruling are not a terror to the good works, but to the bad; and dost you wish not to be afraid of the authority? that which is good be doing, and thou shalt have praise from it, 


Rom 13:3


for I will not dare to speak anything of the things that messiah did not work through me, to obedience of nations, by word and deed,
                                                                                                                                                                        Rom 15:18

and become you doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves because, if any one is a hearer of the word and not a doer, this one hath been like to a man viewing his natural face in a mirror

James 1:22-23

What is the profit, my brethren, if faith, any one may speak of having, and works he may not have

James 2:14

Avraham our father -- was not he  justified out of works, having brought up Isaac his son upon the altar
                                                                                                                                              James 2:21


dost you see that the faith was working with his works, and out of the works the faith was perfected
and fulfilled was the writing that is saying, 'And Avraham did believe elohim, and it was reckoned to him -- to righteousness;' and, 'friend of elohim he was called 
you see, then, that out of works is man  justified, and not out of faith only;


 James 2:22-24

for as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also the faith apart from the works is dead


James 2:26

 
to him, then, knowing to do good, and not doing, sin it is to him.


James. 4:17


for he who did enter into his rest, he also rested from his works, as elohim from his own


Heb. 4:10


and may we consider one another to provoke to love and to good works,

Heb 10:24

not by works that [are] in righteousness that we did but according to his kindness, he did deliver us, through a bathing of regeneration, and a renewing of the holy spirit,
                                                                                                                                              Tts 3:5

who  did deliver us, and  called with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, that was given to us in messiah Jesus, before the times of the ages,
                                                                                                                                                                             2. Tim. 1:9

`And whenever the son of man may come in his honor, and all the holy messengers with him, then he shall sit upon a throne of his honor; and gathered together before him shall be all the nations, and he shall separate them from one another, as the shepherd doth separate the sheep from the goats, and he shall set the sheep indeed on his right hand, and the goats on the left.
 `Then shall the king say to those on his right hand, Come you, the blessed of my father, inherit the  kingdom that hath been prepared for you from the foundation of the world;  for I did hunger, and you gave me to eat; I did thirst, and you gave me to drink; I was a stranger, and you received me; naked, and you put around me; I was infirm, and you looked after me; in prison I was, and you came unto me.
 `Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, lord, when did we see you hungering, and we nourished? or thirsting, and we gave to drink?
 and when did we see you a stranger, and we received? or naked, and we put around?
 and when did we see you infirm, or in prison, and we came unto you?
 And the king answering, shall say to them, Verily I say to you, Inasmuch as you did [it] to one of these my brethren -- the least -- to me you did [it].
 Then shall he say also to those on the left hand, Go you from me, the cursed, to the fire, the age-during, that hath been prepared for the devil and his messengers;
for I did hunger, and you gave me not to eat; I did thirst, and you gave me not to drink;
 a stranger I was, and you did not receive me; naked, and you put not around me; infirm, and in prison, and you did not look after me.
Then shall they answer, they also, saying, lord, when did we see you hungering, or thirsting, or a stranger, or naked, or infirm, or in prison, and we did not minister to thee?
Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say to you, Inasmuch as you did [it] not to one of these, the least, you did [it] not to me.
 And these shall go away to punishment age-during, but the righteous to life age-during.'
                                                                                                                               
   Matt. 25:31-46           Notice the word brethren in the verse Matt 25:40 !!!  I think that non-believers are not brethren of  Jesus.   A teacher teaches:   ” 'I was hungry' , that is, my disciples and followers were so ”.  Muslims are not  brethren of Jesus, and for example, catholics are not brethren of Jesus.
Inasmuch as you did [it] to one of these my brethren -- the least -- to me you did [it]   Matt  25:40

or both he who is sanctifying and those sanctified are all of one, for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren, saying, 'I will declare your name to my brethren, in the midst of a gathering I will sing praise to you;
Heb 2:11-12
  for my yoke [is] fit  and my burden is light.                      Mat 11:-30

and a certain one said to him, `lord,  are those delivered few?  and he said unto them,
`Be striving to go in through the narrow gate, because many, I say to you, will seek to go in, and shall not be able;   from the time the master of the house may have risen up, and may have shut the door, and you may begin without to stand, and to knock at the door, saying, lord, lord, open to us, and he answering shall say to you, I have not known you whence you are,
then you may begin to say, We did eat before you, and did drink, and in our broad places you didst teach;
 and he shall say, I say to you, I have not known you whence you are; depart from me, all you workers of the iniquity.
 There shall be there the weeping and the gnashing of the teeth, when you may see Avraham, and Yitschaq , and Yaaqov, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of elohim, and yourselves being cast out without;   and they shall come from east and west, and from north and south, and shall recline in the kingdom of elohim,  and lo, there are last who shall be first, and there are first who shall be last.'

Luke 13:23-30


 ... in every good work being fruitful, and increasing to the knowledge of elohim

Col. 1:10


And you -- who once were alienated, and enemies in the mind, in the bad works, yet now did he reconcile,

Col 1:21

Lie not one to another, having put off the old man with his practices,


Col 3:9


and his own work let each one prove, and then in regard to himself alone the glorying he shall have, and not in regard to the other,

 Gal 6:4


having your conduct among the nations good, that in that which they speak against you as evil-doers, of the good works having beheld, they may glorify elohim in a day of inspection
                                                                                                                                                                          1. Pet.  2:12

because, so is the will of elohim, doing good, to put to silence the ignorance of the foolish men

                                                                                                                                                                             1.Pet 2:15

for [it is] better doing good, if the will of elohim will it, to suffer, than doing bad

                                                                                                                                                                               1.Pet. 3:17

Only worthily of the good news of the messiah conduct you yourselves, that, whether having come and seen you, whether being absent I may hear of the things concerning you, that you stand fast in one spirit, with one soul, striving together for the faith of the good news,

Phil 1:27

call upon you, then, do I -- the prisoner of the lord -- to walk worthily of the calling with which you were called

Eph. 4:1


for your walking worthily of elohim, who is calling you to his own kingdom and honor.

1.Thess 2:12

and to be aspiring to lead a quiet life and to be practicing your own [thing] and to be working with your hands, just as we commanded you,  in order that you walk properly towards those outside and have no need.

1.Thess.4:11-12

and to you who are afflicted -- rest with us in the revelation of the lord Jesus from heaven, with messengers of his power in flaming fire, giving vengeance to those not knowing elohim, and to those not obeying the gospel of our lord Jesus messiah  who shall be punished with  destruction age-during -- from the face of the lord, and from the honor of his strength 

2. Thess.  1:7-9

and you, brethren, may you not be weary  doing well,                                                    2.Th 3:13

for I will not dare to speak anything of the things that messiah did not work through me, to obedience of nations, by word and deed,

Rom 15:18

for sin over you shall not have lordship, for you are not under the law  but under grace.
 What then? shall we sin because we are not under the law but under grace? let it not be!
 have you not known that to whom you present yourselves servants to obedience, servants you are to him to whom you obey, whether of sin to death, or of obedience to righteousness,  …


 Rom. 6:14-

and now having been made manifest, also, through prophetic writings, according to a command of the age-during elohim, having been made known to all the nations to  obedience of faith

 Rom. 16:26

for, for this also did I write, that I might know the proof of you, whether in regard to all things you are obedient.

2Cr 2:9

reasonings bringing down, and every high thing lifted up against the knowledge of elohim, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of the messiah,

2.Cr10:5

and having been made perfect, he did become to all those obeying him a cause of deliverance age-during,


Heb 5:9

according to a foreknowledge of elohim the father, in holiness of the spirit, to obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus messiah, grace to you and peace be multiplied

1Peter  1:2

David  P. teaches:
”2 Thessalonians 1:8,9 - Those who obey not the gospel will receive vengeance in flaming fire. They are punished ...”
”Romans 2:7 - Eternal life is for those who are patient in doing good.
Romans 2:6-10 - elohim renders to each man according to his works [v6]. Those who continue patiently in doing good will receive eternal life [v7]. Those who do not obey the truth but obey unrighteousness and work evil, will receive tribulation and anguish, etc.[vv 8,9]. But glory and honor await all who work good [v10]. The things we do determine our eternal reward. ”
[David  P. uses the word eternal in his teaching.  The Young's literal translation translates the Greek word aionios  as ´age-during´ in many verses. I think that 'olam' and 'aionios' don't always mean everlasting time, although KJV translates aionios  42x as eternal and 25x as everlasting. ]


the [one] believing in the son, has  life age-during and the [one] disobeying the son , shall not see life, but the wrath of elohim doth remain upon him on him.


John 3:36

He who is rejecting me, and not receiving my sayings, hath one who is judging him, the word that I spake, that will judge him in the last day, because I spake not from myself, but the father who sent me, He did give me a command, what I may say, and what I may speak, and I have known that his command is life age-during; what, therefore, I speak, according as the father hath said to me, so I speak.'

John 12:48-50

If you love me, my commands keep,

John 14:15

he who is having my commands, and is keeping them, that one it is who is loving me, and he who is loving me shall be loved by my father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.'
 Judas saith to him, /not the Iscariot/, 'Sir, what hath come to pass, that to us thou are about to manifest yourself, and not to the world?'
Jesus answered and said to him, 'If any one may love me, my word he will keep, and my father will love him, and unto him we will come, and abode with him we will make;

 John 14:21-23
A teacher teaches:  ...  “New Testament has space for all sorts of other commands … but it never commands the Sabbath.”

if any one doth think to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge the things that I write to you -- that of the lord they are commands
                                                                                                                                             1. Cr. 14:37

and this is his command, that we may believe in the name of his son Jesus messiah, and may love one another, even as he did give command to us,

1. John 3:23   
       
and this is the command we have from him, that he who is loving elohim, may also love his brother.



1.John 4:21


Treasure not up to yourselves treasures on the earth, where moth and rust disfigure, and where thieves break through and steal, but treasure up to yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth disfigure, and where thieves do not break through nor steal   for where your treasure is, there will be also your heart                                                                                                                        
                                                                                                                                                                    
Matt. 6:19-21

sell your possessions, and give alms, make to yourselves bags that become not old, a treasure unfailing in the heavens, where thief doth not come near, nor moth destroy                      Luke 12:33

 so then every one of you who does not ”apotassetai”all that he has  cannot be my disciple
 [Luke 14:33]

I am not sure how the Greek word apotasso [apotassetai] should be translated in the verse Luke 14:33.

a dictionary defines apostasso:
1.to set apart, separate
1.to separate one's self, withdraw one's self from anyone
1.to take leave of, bid farewell to
2.to renounce, forsake

Scripture4all  interlinear translation  translates the words' hos ouk apotassetai' in the verse Luke 14:33 as  'who not is from-setting'.

    And he said to [them] all, If any [man] will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me

Luke 9:23

Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any [man] will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me
For whosoever will save his soul shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his soul for my sake shall find it.
For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul
                                                                                  
 Matt 16:24-26

Love not you the world, nor the things in the world; if any one loves the world, the love of the father is not in him

1. John 2:15

for many walk of whom many times I told you -- and now also weeping tell -- the enemies of the cross of the messiah
whose end [is] perdition, whose elohim [is] the belly, and whose honor [is] in their shame, who the things on earth are minding
For our commonwealth is in the heavens, whence also a deliverer we await -- the lord Jesus messiah
who shall transform the body of our humiliation to its becoming conformed to the body of his honor, according to the working of his power, even to subject to himself the all things

Phl 3:18-21

and for all he died, that those living, no more to themselves may live, but to him who died for them, and was raised again

2. Cor 5:15

I think that many  teachers don't teach about denying oneself according to the Bible.


Michael teaches:
 "He [Paul] explained to the Corinthians that since Jesus died for all of us, then “those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again” [2 Cor. 5:15].
That really says it all: We no longer live for ourselves; instead, we live for him who died for us and was raised again.”

I think that KJV and many other translations mistranslate the Greek word psyche in the verses Luke 14:26, John 12:25  and Matt. 16:25. Notice the verse 1.Peter 3:10

'If any one doth come unto me, and doth not hate his own father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brothers, and sisters, and yet even his own soul, he is not able to be my disciple

[Luke 14:26  The Greek word psyche translated as soul]

he who is loving his soul shall lose it, and he who is hating his soul in this world -- to life age-during shall keep it;

[John 12:25 The Greek word  psyche translated as soul and the Greek word zoe translated as life]

for  he who is willing to love life, and to see good days, let him guard his tongue from bad, and his lips -- not to speak guile;

[1.Peter 3:10 ,the Greek word zoe translated as life in the verse 1Peter 3:10.]











A teacher teaches:
”The concrete meaning to "sin" is "to miss" as when aiming at a target.”
Another teacher teaches:
 ”The scriptural definition of sin is to "miss" the mark.”

among all this people there were 700 chosen men, left-handed; everyone could sling stones at an hair breadth and not miss [chata].                                                                                           

Jdg 20:16;
”this word chata [strong's #2398) has the same root as chatta'at [#2403]. ”
[I think that the English term ”sin” is too narrow compared to the Hebrew word chatta'at and compared to the Greek word hamartia. On the other hand, I think that the English term ”sin” has some burden of doctrines of  Catholic church, I think it has also such kind of connotation which doesn't exist in the Hebrew word chatta'at and  in  the Greek word hamartia.  [The Greek word hamartia also means  to miss the mark, mostly translated as sin in KJV.]










I think that many   people  have some  false suppositions  about salvation.  I think that getting to heaven is not as easy as they seem to think.
So I encourage you to study from the Bible what  is deliverance.
[I prefer using the term deliverance than the term salvation]


 A teacher teaches:
”Salvation comes from the Greek word "soteria", which means deliverance.  Deliverance means a release from bondage, imprisonment and liberation from captivity.”


[The Septuagint is an old Greek translation of the Old Yestament.]
Ed Underwood teaches:
”Both the Septuagint and the New Testament use the Greek word sozo [soter, soteria] to translate yasha’ ”


and she shall bring forth a son, and you shalt call his name Yahuwšua  for he shall deliver his people from their sins.


[Matt. 1:21 A teacher taught  that the original Hebrew name of Jesus is Yahuwšua. [Actually the teacher wrote it Yahushua]

A teacher teaches:
”The principal  Hebrew term translated 'salvation' is"yasha" and its cognates, used 353 times in the Old Testament. Its basic meaning is 'bring into a spacious environment', but it carries from the beginning the metaphorical sense
of 'freedom from limitation' and the means to that; i.e. deliverance from factors which constrain and confine.
A stronger being brings deliverance to the weak or oppressed by superior intervention.”

”In the Septuagint the verb "sozo"  and the noun "soteria"  are most often used to translate the different forms of "yasha".”


 I think that the Greek word "sozo" should be translated as "to deliver" in many verses [but not in every verse in which occurs the Greek word sozo, for example, not in the verse 1.Peter 4:18]  and that the Greek word soteria should be translated  as ”deliverance” in many verses.


for the word of the cross to those indeed perishing is foolishness, and to us -- those being delivered -- it is the power of elohim,


Corinthians 1:18

for by grace  you are having been delivered, through faith, and this not of you -- of elohim the gift,
                                                                                                                                               Eph. 2:8

who did deliver  us, and did call with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, that was given to us in messiah Jesus, before the times of the ages,

2. Tim. 1:9


 and you shall be hated by all because of my name, but he who hath endured to the end, he shall be delivered.


Matt. 10:22
'

... he did deliver us, through a bathing of regeneration, and a renewing of the holy spirit


Tts 3:5


receiving the end of your faith -- deliverance of souls; concerning which deliverance seek out and search out did prophets who concerning the grace toward you did prophecy,


1. Peter1:9-10


So that, my beloved, as you always obey, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, with fear and trembling your own deliverance work out


Phl  2:12



if   perhaps   I   might   attain   to   the rising-up of the dead. not  that  I  have  already  received,


 Phil 3:11

Lo, then, goodness and severity of elohim-- upon those indeed who fell, severity; and upon you, goodness, if you mayest remain in the goodness, otherwise, thou also shalt be cut off.  

Rom 11:22


Again, the kingdom of the heavens is like to a net that was cast into the sea, and did gather together of every kind,  which, when it was filled, having drawn up again upon the beach, and having sat down, they gathered the good into vessels, and the bad they did cast out, so shall it be in the full end of the age, the messengers shall come forth and separate the bad out of the midst of the righteous,  and shall cast them to the furnace of the fire, there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of the teeth.'


 Matt 13:47-50



and a certain one said to him, `lord,  are those delivered few?  and he said unto them,
`Be striving to go in through the narrow gate, because many, I say to you, will seek to go in, and shall not be able;   from the time the master of the house may have risen up, and may have shut the door, and you may begin without to stand, and to knock at the door, saying, lord, lord, open to us, and he answering shall say to you, I have not known you whence you are,
then you may begin to say, We did eat before you, and did drink, and in our broad places you didst teach;
 and he shall say, I say to you, I have not known you whence you are; depart from me, all you workers of the iniquity.
 There shall be there the weeping and the gnashing of the teeth, when you may see Avraham, and Yitschaq , and Yaaqov, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of elohim, and yourselves being cast out without;   and they shall come from east and west, and from north and south, and shall recline in the kingdom of elohim,  and lo, there are last who shall be first, and there are first who shall be last.'

Luke 13:23-30





















And you, beloved, on your most holy faith building yourselves up, in the holy spirit praying

Jude 1:20

Pray without ceasing.                                                                                                     1.Thess 5:17

The spirit quench not;                            1.Thess 5:19

but, there cometh an hour, and it now is, when the true worshippers will worship the father in spirit and truth, for the father also doth seek such to worship him, elohim is a spirit, and those worshipping him, in spirit and truth it doth behove to worship.'

John 4:23-24

Then Peter, having been filled with the holy spirit, said unto them:  

Acts 4:8

and being full of the holy spirit, having looked stedfastly to the heaven, he saw the honor of elohim, and Jesus standing on the right hand of elohim                                                                 Acts. 7:55

There is, then, now no condemnation to those in messiah Jesus not according to the flesh walkers, but according to the spirit

Rom. 8:1

for if according to the flesh you do live, you are about to die; and if, by the spirit, the deeds of the body you put to death, you shall live, for as many as are led by the spirit of elohim, these are the sons of elohim

Rom. 8:13-14

in the diligence not slothful, in the spirit fervent, the lord serving;                               Rom. 12:11

for the kingdom of elohim is not eating and drinking, but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the holy spirit                                                                                                                           Rom. 14:17

and be not drunk with wine, in which is dissoluteness, but be filled in the spirit                  Eph 5:18

through all prayer and supplication praying at all times in the spirit, and in regard to this same, watching in all perseverance ...                                                                                          Eph 6:18



And I say: in the spirit walk you, and the lust of the flesh you may not complete;
  for the flesh lusteth  contrary to the spirit, and the spirit contrary to the flesh, and these are opposed one to another, that the things that you may will -- these you may not do;
and if by the spirit you are led, you are not under the law.
 And manifest also are the works of the flesh, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, strifes, emulations, wraths, rivalries, dissensions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkennesses, revellings, and such like, of which I tell you before, as I also said before, that those doing such things the kingdom of elohim shall not inherit, And the fruit of the spirit is: love, joy, peace, long-suffering, benignity, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: 
the law is not against such things. And those who are messiah's, the flesh did crucify with the affections, and the desires, if we may live in the spirit, in the spirit also we may walk;
                                                                                         

 Gal. 5:16-25


for if according to the flesh you do live, you are about to die; and if, by the spirit, the deeds of the body you put to death, you shall live;


Rom 8:13

Have you understood how important it is to walk in the spirit, to pray in the spirit,  to be filled  in the spirit  and to pray without ceasing? I  also encourage you  to ask the gift to  speak in tongues.  I have noticed  it is very up-building  to speak in tongues.

for he who is speaking in an tongue -- to men he doth not speak, but to elohim, for no one doth hearken, and in spirit he doth speak secrets

1Cr. 14:2

he who is speaking in a tongue, himself doth edify, and he who is prophesying, an assembly doth edify;

1. Cr 14:4


And to each hath been given the manifestation of the spirit for profit,  for to one through the spirit hath been given a word of wisdom, and to another a word of knowledge, according to the same spirit,  and to another faith in the same spirit, and to another gifts of healings in the same spirit; and to another in-workings of mighty deeds; and to another prophecy; and to another discernings of spirits; and to another [divers] kinds of tongues; and to another interpretation of tongues, and all these doth work the one and the same spirit, dividing to each severally as he intendeth

1.Cr. 12:7-12

[But do NOT  join to Pentecostal assembly nor  to so-called charismatic movement. I think that they don't teach about deeds and works according to the Bible, and that they neglect to teach some important teachings from the Bible, and that they have some teachings which are not sound, and  that they emphasize such kind of gifts like talking in tongues or prophecying, too much. And I think that some effect operations inside the so called charismatic movement don't come from the holy spirit, but from  seducing spirits.]









I know that some of them who use the term elohim, are Judaists. I am not a Judaist, I do eat pork and I work on Sabbath [Saturday] and I work on Sunday, and I don't pay tithes. I feel free to work on Sabbath, because I am not under the law.
Do NOT join to such kind of assembly in which they try oblige believing Gentiles to keep the law of Moses. But I think that there are many teachers, who have some other false doctrines concerning the law.  So I encourage you to study this matter  from the Bible.


Emeal teaches:
”...It was determined that Paul and Barnabas should go up to Jerusalem to meet with the apostles and elders in order to settle this dispute.
... the apostle Peter asked regarding this matter: 'Why do you test elohim by putting a yoke on the neck of the disciples which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?' [Acts 15:10]. It was then revealed by the holy spirit that the Gentile believers were not obligated to keep the law of Moses, but they, as well as the Jews, are delivered through the grace of the lord Jesus.”
[ I changed the term save to term deliver]

John MacArthur teaches:

"When the Apostles met at the Jerusalem council [Acts 15], they did not impose Sabbath keeping on the Gentile believers."

William teaches:
Jewish christians continued to follow the law of Moses
Paul also kept the law. James bears witness that Paul was law observant in Acts 21:20-24


A teacher teaches: "The Torah is the Law, commonly known as the first five books of the Old Testament: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy.”

Teacher, which [is] the great command in the law? and Jesus said to him, `you shalt love Yhwh your elohim with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your understanding - this is a first and great command; and the second [is] like to it, you shalt love your neighbor as yourself; on these the two commands all the law and the prophets do hang.'
                                                                                                                                          Matt. 22:36-40
`Do not suppose that I came to throw down the law or the prophets -- I did not come to throw down, but to fulfill; for, verily I say to you, till that the heaven and the earth may pass away, one iota or one tittle may not pass away from the law, till that all may come to pass. Whoever therefore may annul one of these commands -- the least -- and may teach men so, least he shall be called in the kingdom  of the heavens, but whoever may do and may teach [them], he shall be called great in the kingdom of the heavens.

[Matt 5:17-19 ]

Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary:
Matt. 5:19. Whosoever therefore shall ”break”—rather, "dissolve," "annul," or "make invalid."
one of these least commandments."


[There is a Greek verb lyo in the verse Matt. 5:19, lyo, to loose, translated as annul , translated as  loose in Young's literal translation verse Matt. 5:19 ]:

Whoever therefore may loose one of these commands -- the least -- and may teach men so, least he shall be called in the reign of the heavens.


Therefore do we nullify the law through faith? let it not be.  Yea  we establish  the law.

[Rom. 3:31, the Greek  word katargeo, translated as nullify]                                                           [histemi, to cause or make to stand, to place, put, set, to stand , translated  as establish]

 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with [him] in order that the body of the sin  may be nullified; for our no longer slaving the sin;

[Rom. 6:6, the Greek word katargeo in the verse 6, translated as be nullified]

So that, my brethren, you also were made dead to the law through the body of the messiah, for your becoming another's, who out of the dead was raised up, that we might bear fruit to elohim;
                                                                                                                                                Rom. 7:4
and now we were ceased from the law  having died in which we were held so that we may serve in newness of spirit, and not in oldness of  the letter. 

[Rom 7:6,  the Greek word katargeo translated as were ceased]


Ben teaches: ”
,...” The law was not nullified.
In verse [Rom 7: 6],  ...     Rather, he says we, through death, were “nullified ”
 .... So the way that we were “nullified from the  law ” is that we  `died`.”

Concerning the verses Eph 2:14-15, a teacher teaches that it was the enmity which was abolished, not the law.

 ”the Greek uses the same word for abolished [KATARGEO Strong's Gk. #2673] both in Rom. 3:31 and Eph. 2:15a.”
[and also in Romans 6:6 , 7:2 and 7:6]

katargeo  according to a dictionary:
to render idle, unemployed, inactivate, inoperative
1.to cause a person or thing to have no further efficiency
2.to deprive of force, influence, power
2.to cause to cease, put an end to, do away with, annul, abolish
1.to cease, to pass away, be done away
2.to be severed from, separated from, discharged from, loosed from any one
3.to terminate all intercourse with one


Are you ignorant, brethren -- for to those knowing law I speak -- that the law hath lordship over the man as long as he liveth?
 for the married woman to the living husband hath been bound by law, and if the husband may die, she hath been free from the law of the husband;
so, then, the husband being alive, an adulteress she shall be called if she may become another man's; and if the husband may die, she is free from the law, so as not to be an adulteress, having become another man's.
 So that, my brethren, you also were made dead to the law through the body of the messiah, for your becoming another's, who out of the dead was raised up, that we might bear fruit to elohim;
for when we were in the flesh, the passions of the sins, that are through the law, were working in our members, to bear fruit to the death;
and now we were ceased from the law  having died in which we were held so that we may serve in newness of spirit, and not in oldness of letter. 

[Rom 7:1-6]

for sin over you shall not have lordship, for you are not under the law  but under grace.
 What then? shall we sin because we are not under the law but under grace? let it not be!
 have you not known that to whom you present yourselves servants to obedience, servants you are to him to whom you obey, whether of sin to death, or of obedience to righteousness,                       



 Rom. 6:14-

wherefore by works of  the law shall no flesh be  justified before him, for through the law  is a knowledge of sin.                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                               Rom 3:20

And the end of the charge is love out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned, from which certain, having swerved, did turn aside to vain discourse,
 willing to be teachers of the law, not understanding either the things they say, nor concerning what they asseverate,
and we have known that the law  [is]  good, if any one may use it lawfully;
having known this, that for a righteous man the law is not set, but for wrong ones  and insubordinate persons,  impious and sinners, …  and profane, to father-murderers and mother-murderers, to men-murderers,  to fornicators, to sodomites, to men-stealers , to liars, to perjurers, and any other [thing] opposed to sound teaching

1.Tim. 1:5-10

for what the law  was not able to do, in that it was weak through the flesh, elohim  his own son having sent in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, did condemn the sin in the flesh, that the righteousness of the law  may be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the spirit.

Rom 8:3-4


To no one owe anything, except to love one another; for he who is loving the other – the law  he hath fulfilled,


 Rom 13:8

the love to the neighbour doth work no bad; the love, therefore, is the fulness of the law.


Rom 13:10


all things, therefore, whatever you  may will that men may be doing to you, so also do to them, for this is the law  and the prophets

Matt. 7:12

therefore do we reckon a man to be justified by faith, apart from works of  thelaw.

Rom 3:28

 having known also that a man is not  justified from works of the law, if not through the faith of Jesus messiah, also we in messiah Jesus did believe, that we might be  justified from the faith of messiah, and not from works of the law, wherefore justified by works of  the law shall be no flesh.


Gal 2:16

so that the  law  became our child-conductor  -- to messiah, that we might be justified by faith , and the faith having come, no more under child-conductor  are we,

 Gal 3:24-25

and if by the spirit you are led, you are not under the law. And manifest also are the works of the flesh, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, strifes, emulations, wraths, rivalries, dissensions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkennesses, revellings, and such like, of which I tell you before, as I also said before, that those doing such things the kingdom of elohim shall not inherit,
And the fruit of the spirit is: love, joy, peace, long-suffering, benignity, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law and those who are messiah's, the flesh did crucify with the affections, and the desires, if we may live in the spirit, in the spirit also we may walk;                                                                                   
                                                                                                                                                                     [Gal. 5:18-25]


for he who did enter into his rest, he also rested from his works, as elohim  from his own


Heb. 4:10


for in the law of Moses it hath been written, 'you shalt not muzzle an ox treading out corn;' for the oxen doth elohim care?
or because of us by all means doth he say [it]? yes, because of us it was written, because in hope ought the plower to plow, and he who is treading [ought] of his hope to partake in hope


1.Cr. 9:9-10

And having come to Jerusalem, they were received by the assembly, and the apostles, and the elders, they declared also as many things as elohim did with them;
 and there rose up certain of those of the sect of the pharisees who believed, saying -- `It behoveth to circumcise them, to command them also to keep the law of Moses.
 And there were gathered together the apostles and the elders, to see about this matter,
 and there having been much disputing, peter having risen up said unto them, `Men, brethren, you know that from former days, elohim among us did make choice, through my mouth, for the nations to hear the word of the good news, and to believe  and the heart-knowing  elohim did bare them testimony, having given to them the holy spirit, even as also to us,and did put no difference also between us and them, by the faith having purified their hearts;
now, therefore, why do you tempt elohim, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?
but, through the grace of the lord Jesus messiah, we believe to be delivered, even as also they.'
And all the multitude did keep silence, and were hearkening to Barnabas and Paul, declaring as many signs and wonders as elohim did among the nations through them;
and after they are silent, James answered, saying, `Men, brethren, hearken to me
Simeon did declare how at first elohim did look after to take out of the nations a people for his name, and to this agree the words of the prophets, as it hath been written:
After these things I will turn back, and I will build again the tabernacle of David, that is fallen down, and its ruins I will build again, and will set it upright that the residue of men may seek after the lord, and all the nations, upon whom my name hath been called, saith Yhwh, who is doing all these things. Known from the ages to elohim are all his works; wherefore I judge: not to trouble those who from the nations do turn back to elohim
but to write to them to abstain from the pollutions of the idols, and the fornication, and the strangled thing; and the blood;
for Moses from former generations in every city hath those preaching him -- in the synagogues every sabbath being read.' Then it seemed good to the apostles and the elders, with the whole assembly, chosen men out of themselves to send to antioch with Paul and Barnabas -- Judas surnamed Barsabas, and Silas, leading men among the brethren --
having written through their hand thus: `The apostles, and the elders, and the brethren, to those in Antioch, and Syria, and Cilicia, brethren, who [are] of the nations, greeting;
seeing we have heard that certain having gone forth from us did trouble you with words, subverting your souls, saying to be circumcised and to keep the law, to whom we did give no charge,
it seemed good to us, having come together with one accord, chosen men to send unto you, with our beloved Barnabas and Paul -- men who have given up their lives for the name of our lord Jesus messiah-- we have sent, therefore, Judas and Silas, and they by word are telling the same things.
`For it seemed good to the holy spirit, and to us, no more burden to lay upon you, except these necessary things:
to abstain from things offered to idols, and blood, and a strangled thing, and fornication; from which keeping yourselves, you shall do well, fare you well..
They then, indeed, having been let go, went to Antioch, and having brought the multitude together, did deliver the epistle and they having read, did rejoice for the consolation; 

Acts 15:4-31

Emeal teaches:
”...It was determined that Paul and Barnabas should go up to Jerusalem to meet with the apostles and elders in order to settle this dispute.
... the apostle Peter asked regarding this matter: "Why do you test elohim by putting a yoke on the neck of the disciples which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?" [Acts 15:10]. It was then revealed by the holy spirit that the Gentile believers were not obligated to keep the law of Moses, but they, as well as the Jews, are delivered through the grace of the lord Jesus.”
[ I changed the term save to term deliver]
John teaches:

"When the Apostles met at the Jerusalem council [Acts 15], they did not impose Sabbath keeping on the Gentile believers."

William teaches:
Jewish christians continued to follow the law of Moses
Paul also kept the law. James bears witness that Paul was law observant in Acts 21:20-24

When Paul came to visit Jerusalem, James spoke of how the Jewish christians there were zealous for the Law.
But, they had been told a rumor that Paul was teaching Jewish christians to forsake the Law. To counter this, James had Paul publicly go through a Mosaic vow ceremony.
James says in v. 24, “Thus all will know that there is nothing in what they have been told about you, but that you yourself also live in observance of the law.” ”



...you seest, brother, how many myriads there are of Jews who have believed, and all are zealous of the law and they are instructed concerning thee, that apostacy from Moses thou dost teach to all Jews among the nations, saying -- Not to circumcise the children, nor after the customs to walk;
what then is it? certainly the multitude it behoveth to come together, for they will hear that you hast come. This, therefore, do that we say to you: We have four men having a vow on themselves
these having taken, be purified with them, and be at expence with them, that they may shave the head, and all may know that the things of which they have been instructed concerning you are nothing, but thou dost walk -- yourself also -- the law keeping
'And concerning those of the nations who have believed, we have written, having given judgment, that they observe no such thing, except to keep themselves both from idol-sacrifices, and blood, and a strangled thing, and fornication.'
Then Paul, having taken the men, on the following day, with them having purified himself, was entering into the temple, announcing the fulfilment of the days of the purification, till the offering was offered for each one of them.

[Acts 21:20-26]

having blotted out the handwriting in the ordinances that is against us, that was contrary to us, and he hath taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross

Col 2:14

 A teacher teaches:
”A handwriting, cheirografon in the  Greek text,  which means a promissory note, which debtor has written with him own hands.  Verse 14 doesn’t mean the law  of elohim ...]”


 Comments  of some teachers concerning the verse Letter to Hebrews 7:18:
”A setting aside ”
”of the commandment—   ordaining the Levitical priesthood.”
”It must be borne in mind throughout that by the “commandment” is meant the ordinance which created the Levitical priesthood, not the Law in general.” 







I don' t use the term ”God” when I refer to Yhwh or when I refer to his son Jesus  the messiah, but I use the term elohim.[ I have quoted teachings of many men in this text, and I have corrected the term elohim to those teachings.]
The reason why I don't use the term God when I refer to Yhwh or when I refer to Jesus the messiah  is that some brethren told me that ”God” is a name of an idol. 
I think it is evident that this usage of the name of an Babylonian deity, God, comes from the catholic church.  I think that catholic church has many false dotrines.

and you  are  they  that  forsake Yhwh, that  forget  my  holy  mountain,  that prepare  a  table  for  Gad,  and  that fill  a drink offering for Meniy
                                                                                                                             Isaiah 65:11
Gad and Meniy are names of idols.
גַּד      Gd   [written as vocalised Gad ] [Strong 's concordance number H1408]
Mny [written as vocalised meniy]  Strong's number H4507

הַֽעֹרְכִים לַגַּד שֻׁלְחָן וְהַֽמְמַלְאִים לַמְנִי  from the verse  Isaiah 65:11   [  ל  means to]

גַּד   [Strong's h1408)  Gd , as vocalised Gad, [notice that the vowel mark patach  _  ,is pronounced like a in the aqua]   KJV hides this thing. I noticed that a new edition of Strong's concordance claims it to be the number h1409, but if you  check the vowel marks you can notice it is Strong's number h1408.  

 In the Hebrew language,  all sounds are not written. In the middle ages, the Masorites invented the vowel point system. The vowel points are the little dots and dashes under and above certain  Hebrew letters.

There is a text ”in God we trust”  in the dollar bill. I think that they who have written that text to the dollar  bill,  don't mean the elohim of Avraham, Isaac and  Jacob, but a Babylonian idol.

As  a brother wrote, the Hebrew term elohim is not a name but it is a general term.  If I would be Greek, I would use the Greek term theos. But because I don't know any exact English translation for  the Hebrew term elohim,  I use that Hebrew word elohim.  I have read that some people translate the term elohim as ” mighty one ” in English.

The Bible teaches that the  name of the elohim is Yhwh. I think that the name  has been transliterated incorrectly in the KJV and in the Young's Literal Translation, I think that the vowels are not  e o a.

A teacher taught  that ,”the masorites often changed Yahu to Yeho when it appeared at the beginning of names but left Yahu in tact when it appeared at the end. The scribes apparently did not want anyone to accidentally pronounce the elohim's name when saying these other names, so they changed the vowel points of those names as well. Interestingly, they did not change the pronunciation of these same three letters when it was at the end of a person's name. For instance, look at how  Isaiah's name is presented in the Hebrew text.”   [ Isaiah,  Yeša'yahuw in Hebrew]


And as I told earlier, one teacher taught that the Hebrew name of Jesus  is  Yahuwšua.
[Written without vowels   Yhwš' ] [Actually the teacher wrote it Yahushua]

because three are who are testifying ,  the spirit, and the water, and the blood, and the three are into the one.

[1.John 5:7-8, translated according to the Byzantine text. A  teacher teaches that Textus Receptus is based upon  the Byzantine text.  But there is a difference between  the Byzantine text and Textus Receptus in verses 1.John 5:7-8]

I don't believe the doctrine of trinity anymore, because I think that there are some statements in the doctrine of trinity which are against  the following Bible verses:

... because my father is greater than I.


John 14:28

... first-born of all creation,


Col. 1:15

'And to the messenger of the assembly of the Laodiceans write: These things saith the amen, the witness -- the faithful and true -- the beginning of the creation of elohim; 

Rev.   3:14

[So I don't believe the doctrine of trinity, but the doctrine which I believe is not very different than the doctrine of trinity. I  believe that  'to us [is] one elohim, the father, of whom [are] the all things, and we to him; and one lord, Jesus messiah, through whom [are] the all things, and we through him' [1.Cr 8:6] , and I believe that Jesus the messiah is the son of elohim, and   Jesus the messiah is elohim, and Jesus  the messiah is the true elohim, and Jesus the messiah is the lord. And I believe that the holy spirit is the spirit of elohim.] That was NOT a doctrinal declaration, but I  just mentioned some things what I believe.]

I declare concerning a statute: Yhwh said unto me, 'My son you [are], I to-day have begotten you.

Psa 2:7

A Psalm of David. The affirmation of Yhwh to my lord: 'Sit at My right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool.

Psa 110:1


and, confessedly, great is the secret of piety -- elohim was manifested in flesh


1.Tim. 3:16


 and we have known that the son of elohim is come, and hath given us a mind, that we may know him who is true, and we are in him who is true, in his son Jesus messiah; this  is the true elohim and the life age-during

1.John 5:20


and unto the son: 'your throne, o  elohim, [is] to the age of the age; a scepter of righteousness is the scepter of your reign;


Heb. 1:8








I think that the  term 'mercy' is not  an exact  translation for the Greek word eleos. So I disagree  with those who translated  KJV,  in this matter.













I believe that the Byzantine text  is more accurate than  the Alexandrian  texts. I think that some of the worst errors  in  Alexandrian texts are  that  the  Alexandrian texts omits part of the verse Romans 8:1,  part of the verse Acts. 21:25, and the Greek word eike, translated as 'without cause'  in Young's literal translation and translated as 'without a cause' in KJV,  from the verse Matt. 5:22.

There is differense between Byzantine text and Textus Receptus in the verse Romans 13:1, Byzantine text has preposotion hypo, but the Textus Receptus has the preposition apo. 


Let every soul to the higher authorities be subject, for there is no authority except under elohim,

From  the verse Rom. 13:1


Jacob H. teaches:
..” a christian has no part in war nor does he wield the sword to execute vengeance, as also Paul exhorts and says: "Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath; for it is written: Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the lord" [ Rom. 12:19-21]. Since vengeance is the lord's and not ours, it should be committed to him and is not to be exercised by us. Being followers of christ we must manifest his nature who, though he had all power over his enemies, did not recompense evil for evil [I Pet. 2:21-23]. He did not use his power against his enemies nor did he permit others to defend him. He said to Peter: "Put up you sword" [Matt. 26:52; John 18:10, 11]." "He heals the high priest's servant's ear which Peter had cut off. Now he who has done this says: "If any man will come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me" [Matt. 16:24; Mark 8:32; Luke 9:23].
Christ wills that we should do as he has done, hence he commands us and says: "But I say unto you that you resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also" [Matt. 5:39].”
Henry A. teaches:
”It is needful to distinguish between the New and the Old Covenant. Under the Old Covenant Israel engaged in war, revenge was taken on enemies, there was fighting and taking human life...            But now, ..., these things cannot be permitted, they are plainly forbidden by the word and example of christ, himself elohim and the son of elohim, whom we are commanded to hear [Matt. 17:5]. These things, I say, are plainly and clearly prohibited, not by man but by elohim himself.”








The Young's literal translation translates the Greek word aionios  as ´age-during´ in many verses. I think that 'olam' and 'aionios' don't always mean everlasting time, although KJV translates aionios  42x as eternal and 25x as everlasting. ]

 Liddel & Scott's Greek-English Lexicon's first definition about the Greek term aionios:
”αἰώνιος , [aionios]
lasting for an age [“αἰών” ], perpetual, eternal [but dist. fr. Ἀΐδιος [aidios] ”

To the cuttings of mountains I have come down, The earth, her bars are behind me to the age. And you bringest up from the pit my life, o Yhwh my elohim

[Jonah 2:6. How long was that? There is the Hebrew word olam in the Hebrew Scriptures in this verse, and in the Greek translation of this verse  there is the  Greek word aionios.
   Notice the Greek word aion, translated as age in the verse Matt. 12:32  According to a dictionary, the word aionios is from the word  aion]
And whoever may speak a word against the son of man it shall be forgiven to him, but whoever may speak against the holy spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this age, nor in that which is coming.                                                                                                                            [Matt. 12:32]












According to dictionaries, the Greek word diakonos means a servant and  diakoneo means to serve.
Notice that in verses 1.Tim. 3:10 and 3:13 there is not the word office in the Greek text, there is just the verb  diakoneo. The word ”office” has been added by the English translators.

There is the word diakono in Romans 11:13 which has been mistranslated ”office” in KJV.
According to dictionaries, diakono means service.


and let these also first be proved, then let them serve, being unblameable.                          1.Tim.3:10

  
 for those who did serve well a good step to themselves do acquire, and much boldness in faith that [is] in messiah Jesus. 

1.Tim 3:13

for example, in Luke 10:40 diakono has been translated serving.
There is the word praxis in Romans 12:4 , and it has been mistranslated ”office” in KJV.
According to dictionaries, praxis means a deed, doing.
In verse  1.tim 4:14 there is the Greek word presbyterion which means  elderly.
In verse 1.tim.3:1 there is no word office in the Greek text. there is the Greek word episkope, originally pequdah in Hebrew.

According to teachers, the Hebrew word  qhl, means to gather, a gathering or  an assembly.   There is a quotation from the Psalm 22:22 in the letter to Hebrews 2:12.  In the Psalm 22:22 occurs the word qhl , and it has been translated to Greek  as ”ekklesia” in the verse Hebrew 2:12 .According to a dictionary, ekklesia means a gathering or an assembly.  I cannot English so well and  I don't hear the voice of the holy spirit so clearly at the moment that  I would know which  one is the best  translation,  gathering or assembly, but I think that believers  should not use the term church, because that term is so misleading.


I declare your  name to my brethren, in the midst of the gathering I praise you.


 - Psa 22:22 -


saying, I will declare your name to my brethren, in the midst of a gathering I will sing praise to you;' and again,


 - Hebr 2:12 -


Please notice that the Greek word ekklesia which is  mistranslated as church in KJV in many verses,  occurs also in the following verses of Acts 19, translated as assembly.
                                                                                                                                            

Some indeed, therefore, were calling out one thing, and some another, for the assembly was confused, and the greater part did not know for what they were come together;

Acts 19:32

 'And if you seek after anything concerning other matters, in the legal assembly it shall be determined                                                                                                                        
                                                                                                                                              Acts. 19.39


and these things having said, he dismissed the assembly.                                                     Acts 19:41



[Please take heed of the following  Bible verses, but don't let hereticks to speak and  to mislead people with their false doctrines.]


What  then  is  it,  brethren?  when you come together, there is  to each of you a psalm,  a teaching ,  a tongue , a revelation,   an interpretation. let all be done for  upbuilding.

1.Cor. 14:26


as in all the assemblies of the holy ones  your women in the assemblies let them be silent, for it hath not been permitted to them to speak, but to be subject, as also the law saith;

1.Cor.  14:34

  It  frustrates me if a preacher lenghtens his speech with vain words, stories,  entertainment, or  jokes, or if his speech is like a lecture made by soulish wisdom, not by  the holy spirit.    And I think that it is also very frustrating if someone gives a such kind of testimony which doesn't build up,  in a gathering.  I know that there is a common practise in some assemblies that people are asked to give a testimony, and then they tell their story of life and some of them tell quite filthy details about their former life.  I don't like to hear such kind of testimonies. I think it is not upbuilding to hear filthy details about somebody's former life, or to hear the same story of life again and again.  And I think it is not permitted that a woman gives a testimony in an assembly of the holy ones.

 

concerning all things thyself showing a pattern of good works; in the teaching uncorruptedness, reverence, incorruptibility, discourse sound, irreprehensible,  that the opponent be shamed, having nothing bad to say concerning you.


Tts 2:7-8


in the abundance of words transgression ceaseth not, and whoso is restraining his lips is wise


Pro 10:19,


And I say to you, that every idle word that men may speak, they shall give for it a reckoning in a day of judgment


Matt. 12:36


 So then, my brethren beloved, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger


James 1:19


for  he who is willing to love life, and to see good days, let him guard his tongue from bad, and his lips -- not to speak guile;

1.Peter 3:10

Let no corrupt speech out of your mouth go forth, but what is good unto the needful upbuilding , that it may give grace to the hearers                                                                                     

[Eph 4:29,   please teach that Bible verse also to children.]


neither filthiness,  nor foolish talking, nor jesting,  which are not fitting , but rather thanksgiving;


Eph. 5:4


whoso is reproving a man afterwards findeth grace, more than a flatterer with the tongue

Pro. 28:23


 a way of life [are]  reproofs of instruction,                                                                 Pro  6:23        


The salt [is] good, but if the salt may become saltless, in what will you season [it]? Have in yourselves salt, and have  peace with one another                                                                   Mar. 9:50

be angry and do not sin; let not the sun go down upon your wrath

Eph. 4:26
[Many modern translations omit words 'without cause'  in the verse Matt. 5:22,  because many modern translations are based upon corrupt   Alexandrian texts.]


Those sinning, reprove before all, that the others also may have fear;


1Ti 5:20

preach the word; be earnest in season, out of season, convict, rebuke, exhort, in all long-suffering and teaching,

2Ti 4:2


and we exhort you, brethren, admonish the disorderly, comfort the feeble-minded, support the infirm, be patient unto all;


1Th 5:14

I think that there is  something  false  over positiveness and over optimism in modern culture. I think that false over positiveness and especially false over-positive encouragement can be dangerous, if somebody is taking an irresponsible risk or doing something which is stupid  or bad, and instead of a warning, a rebuke or good advice, other people encourage that person to do the thing which he is going to do.  I think that people should consider what kind of consequences their decisions and  actions may have!   I think that over-positiveness, saltlessness,  lack of rebuke, lack of discipline and lack of chastisement of children are a real problem!
I used to be so over positive that I couldn't  even rebuke or discipline children properly. 

I think that in today's modern culture, many adults [and also some siblings] try to entertain children too much.  You may have more important things to do than to entertain children. But of course you can sometimes play with children, but maybe it is not sensible to play with them too often, if entertaining them causes that you don't have enough time for more important works or rest.
[I have also seen in two families that parents used to let their children to watch on  a lot of cartoon  films at a very early age, and I could notice something hard and very worldly in those children's demeanor and behavior  from a very early age, and I suppose that that worldliness came from watching on a lot of cartoon films, for the parents were not so worldly.]
And  I think that child centred parenting is not good.  I think that child centred parenting may have a bad effect to a marriage.  Parents, don't let children to dominate in your family, and don't let children to dominate discussions in your family.
I think it is also important to teach children to pray and to work from early age.

My people -- its exactors are sucklings, And women have ruled over it. My people -- your eulogists are causing to err, And the way of your paths swallowed up.

Isa 3:12

A foolish woman is noisy, simple, and hath not known what.                                        Pro 9:13

Sadly, I have noticed in my life that girls and women  sometimes  spoil good moments by saying  bad comments, when some believing men and boys can have more up-building things to say.  And women and girls sometimes spoil the calmness of the conversations by talking too much, and by trying to dominate conversations. Women and girls,  notice the words  'the meek and quiet spirit' in the verse 1.Pet. 3:4.  But I have also noticed that some today's men and boys  also try to talk like some actors in comedy tv-series. What the Bible says about  corrupt speech, jesting, foolish talking and idle words?

in like manner also the women ...

...with modesty and sobriety...

 ... not in braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or garments of great price,     
 but what is proper for women professing piety, through good works.  Let [the] woman be learning in silence in all subjection. For I do not permit [a] woman to be teaching, nor to be dominating [a] man, but to be in silence.  For Adam was first formed, then Eve.  And Adam was not deceived but the woman, having been deceived, into transgression came and she shall be saved through
the child-bearing, if they remain in faith, and love, and holiness, with sobriety. 

1.Tim 2:9-15 I think that those verses don't mean that every believing  woman should give a birth to a child. But every believing woman has to remain in faith, and love, and holiness, with sobriety.

sober, pure, keepers of [their] houses, good, subject to their own husbands, that the word of elohim may not be evil spoken of.

Tts 2:5

whose adorning -- let it not be that which is outward, of plaiting of hair, and of putting around of things of gold, or of putting on of garments, but -- the hidden man of the heart, in the incorruptible thing of the meek and quiet spirit, which is, before elohim of great price, for thus once also the holy women who did hope on elohim were adorning themselves, being subject to their own husbands, as Sarah obeyed Avraham, calling him lord:

1.Pet 3

The wives, to your own husbands subject yourselves, as to the lord, because the husband is head of the wife, as also the messiah is head of the assembly, and he is deliverer of the body, but even as the assembly is subject to messiah, so also are the wives to their own husbands in everything  Eph 5:22-



But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with [her] head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. For this cause ought the woman to have power on [her] head because of the angels.

and be not conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, for your proving what is the will of elohim -- the good, and acceptable, and perfect
                                                                                                                                                                         Rom. 12:2


I think that in modern culture, there is not enough gender separation.  I think that it would be good to have some more gender separation   between men and women and between  boys and girls and  also between sons and daughters. [I don't mean between a husband and a wife, but between other men and other women.]  I think that hugging between unmarried people of the opposite gender is not chaste.   I think that girls who are older than 4 years should NOT hug  even  their  dad or  their brothers.  And I think  that boys who are older than 4 years should  NOT  hug  even their  sisters or mom.
  A teacher teaches: ”Elohim does not want us to lead others into temptation through our dress, speech or mannerisms.”  I think it is bad if a woman or a girl talks flirtingly to boys or men , or if a man or a boy talks flirtingly to women or girls.  Do NOT  be over familiar with the opposite gender, except with your own spouse.    Do NOT flirt, except with your own spouse. Be chaste.

Men and boys, don't let this world to harden you, and don't let this world or women and girls to  feminize you. 1. Cr. 16:13:  'Watch you, stand in the faith; be men, be strong.'

Older sisters, don't feminize your younger brothers.









I think that humanistic lies, over optimism and over positiveness have caused naiveness. I want to warn about devil's  devices and wiles, and  about [naive] trusting to people. And I want to warn that don't cast your pearls to swine.  I have such kind of practise that if somebody asks me a curious question, I don't always answer to such kind questions,  but I consider first is it wise to answer or not to  answer. But if  somebody asks about 'the hope that is in you',  I will reply to that kind of question. 1.Pet. 3:15 And [be] ready always for defence to every one who is asking of you an account concerning the hope that [is] in you, with meekness and fear;


Believe not in a friend, trust not in a leader, from her who is lying in your bosom keep the openings of your mouth.

Micah 7:5



 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils,   and in their assemblies they will scourge you,

Mat 10:17


 And this know you, that in the last days there shall come perilous times
for  men shall be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, evil-speakers, to parents disobedient, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, implacable, false accusers, incontinent, fierce,  without love for what is good,  traitors, heady, lofty, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of elohim,    having a form of piety, and its power having denied; and from these be turning away     

2Tim 3:1-5


Happy those persecuted for righteousness  sake -- because theirs is the kingdom of the heavens
Happy are you whenever they may reproach you, and may persecute, and may say any evil thing against you falsely for my sake 

Matt. 5:10-11


You may not give that which is holy to the dogs,  nor cast your pearls before the swine, that they may not trample them among their feet, and having turned -- may rend you.                                                                                                        

Matt. 7:6



and all also who will to live piously in messiah Jesus shall be persecuted,          2. Tim. 3:12



marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.


1.John 3:13


in which they think it strange -- your not running with them to the same excess of dissoluteness, blaspheming

1. Peter. 4:4


then they shall deliver you up to tribulation, and shall kill you, and you shall be hated by all the nations because of my name;
and then shall many be stumbled, and they shall deliver up one another, and shall hate one another

Mat 24:9-10

for there shall be henceforth five in one house divided -- three against two, and two against three; a father shall be divided against a son, and a son against a father, a mother against a daughter, and a daughter against a mother, a mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.'

Luk 12:52-53

And you shall be delivered up also by parents, and brothers, and kindred, and friends, and they shall put of you to death;  and you shall be hated by all because of my name --

Luk 21:16-17


Better to take refuge in Yhwh than to trust in man                                                                       

Psa  118:8

 A revealer of secret counsels is the busybody, And for a deceiver with his lips make not thyself surety.

Pro 20:19


 Each of his friend -- beware you, and on any brother, do not trust, for every brother doth utterly supplant, for every friend slanderously doth walk,

Jer. 9:4


Be sober, vigilant, because your opponent the devil, as a roaring lion, doth walk about, seeking whom he may swallow up, whom resist, stedfast in the faith, having known the same sufferings to your brotherhood in the world to be accomplished.  And the elohim  of all grace, who did call you to his age-during glory in  messiah Jesus, having suffered a little, himself make you perfect, establish, strengthen, settle [you];

1Pe 5:8-10

put on the whole armour of  elohim for your being able to stand against the wiles of the devil,      


[Eph 6:11]


that we may not be over-reached by the adversary, for of his devices we are not ignorant.    2Co 2:11


and I fear, lest, as the serpent did beguile Eve in his subtilty, so your minds may be corrupted from the sincerity  that [is] in the messiah

2Co 11:3

for many walk of whom many times I told you -- and now also weeping tell -- the enemies of the cross of the messiah. Whose end [is] perdition, whose elohim  [is]  the belly, and whose glory  [is]  in their shame, who the things on earth are minding.

Phi 3:18-19








[ I  prefer using the term  holy [one] , not the term saint, because I am afraid that people may misunderstand the word saint. A translation called Hebrew names version also uses the term holy one, not the term saint                                                                                           

 I think that many today's  teachers  don't teach about  holiness and   sanctification according to the Bible. I think that there are also some false teachings and suppositions about  holiness and sanctification among some believers.
So I encourage you to study from the Bible what is holiness.  Don't be friends of this world, don't be common. I think that USA is not a Christian country, because  not all Americans are  believers. I think that there is not any Christian country on the Earth.  But I think that believers are holy people, the lord's own people.

 A teacher teaches:
”The Greek noun hagiasmos, “holiness,” “consecration,” or “sanctification,”  is from the root hagios which means holy or sacred. ”

”Hagios is the same word which is translated holy in other passages.”

Mike  teaches:
”One term which is rather generally neglected with reference to christians is the word "saint.”
My own thought:
[I prefer using the term  holy [one] than a saint, because I am afraid that people may misunderstand the word saint] [ so I would change that sentence  like this:
”One term which is rather generally neglected with reference to christians is the word holy ”
the Bible translation called Hebrew names version uses the term holy one, not the term ”saint.”]

James Arthur  teaches:
” Looking at hagios, the term most used in the New Testament, we find a word that means to consecrate or sanctify. It is translated, in context as holy or holiness or sanctify or sanctification. It is also the term translated as "saint." Thus, by "definition," a saint is one who is holy or sanctified.    Believers are "sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus christ once for all" [Heb 10:10]
Simeon Ponsonby teaches:
”in the New Testament hagios, which is Greek for holy or saint, occurs over 150 times with its associated words”

A teacher teaches:
”In the Septuagint the Greek verb used to translate the Hebrew word qadash is hagiazo”

Ernest  Williams teaches:
”the word qadash which is translated sanctify comes from the root word qad which means to cut.”

 Lee teaches
”Formerly, we were common;   ... But now  ...  we are a sanctified people.”

A teacher teaches:
”They are not common people; they "are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for elohim's own possession"                                                                                           [1 Pet. 2:9].

Salute you every holy one in messiah Jesus, there salute you the brethren with me;
there salute you all the holy , and specially those of Caesar's house;

Phl 4:21-22
George   teaches:
”we have been sanctified by the holy spirit and washed in the blood of the lamb of elohim, and that makes us to be a saint. ”George teaches: ” You are a saint ..”

[My own thought: I prefer using the term  holy [one] , not a saint, because I am afraid that people may misunderstand the word saint] [ so I would change the sentences   like this:
”we have been holyfied by the holy spirit and washed in the blood of the lamb of elohim, and that makes us to be  holy”,                ”You are holy ...”]

Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of elohim

2.Cr. 7:1

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of elohim ? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor sodomites,
nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of elohim.
Such were some of you, but you were washed, but you were holyfied, but you were righteoused  in the name of the lord Jesus messiah and in the spirit of our elohim. All things are permitted to me, but all things are not profitable

1.Cr 6:9-

 For their sakes I holyfy myself, that they themselves also may be holyfied in truth.

Joh 17:19

Unto the gathering of  elohim which is at Corinth, to them that are holyfied in messiah Jesus, called to be holy ones, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus messiah  our lord, both theirs and ours:

1Co 1:2

sure, nevertheless, hath the foundation of elohim stood, having this seal, 'The Lord hath known those who are his,' and 'Let him depart from iniquity -- every one who is naming the name of the lord   And in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth, and some to honor, and some to dishonor:  if , then, any one may cleanse himself from these, he shall be a vessel to honor, holyfied and profitable to the master -- to every good work having been prepared,

2Ti 2:19-21

For it was fitting for him, for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons to honor, to perfect the author of their deliverance through sufferings.
For both he who holyfies and those who are holyfied are all from one father; for which reason he is not ashamed to call them brethren,

Heb 2:10-11

By this will we have been holyfied through the offering of the body of Jesus messiah  once for all.

Heb. 10:10

For by one offering he has perfected for all time those who are holyfied

Heb 10:14

               
  … but you have obeyed from the heart to the  form of teaching to which you were delivered up .
And having been freed from the sin, you became servants to the righteousness.
In the manner of men I speak, because of the weakness of your flesh, for even as ye did present your members servants to the uncleanness and to the wrong -- to the wrong, so now present your members servants to the righteousness -- to holiness,


 Rom. 6:17-19


 And now, having been freed from the sin, and having become servants to elohim, you have your fruit -- to holiness, and the end life age-during;

Rom 6:22

peace pursue with all, and the holiness, apart from which no one shall see the lord,


[Heb 12:14 ]

for elohim did not call us on uncleanness, but in holiness;



1Th 4:7

 and she shall be delivered through the child-bearing, if they remain in faith, and love, and holiness, with sobriety.

1Ti 2:15

and of  him you – you are in messiah Jesus, who became to us from elohim wisdom, righteousness also, and holiness, and redemption,

1Co 1:30


Of the world they are not, as I of the world am not; holyfy them in your truth, your word is truth;as
you didst send me to the world, I also did send them to the world
and for them do I holyfy myself, that they also themselves may be holyfied in truth


John 17:16-19

                                                                                                                                                                                                
Become not yoked with others - unbelievers, for what partaking is there to righteousness and wrong
and what fellowship to light with darkness? and what concord to messiah with belial? or what part to a believer with an unbeliever?
  and what agreement to the sanctuary of elohim with idols? for you are a sanctuary of the living elohim, according as elohim said -- 'I will dwell in them, and will walk among them, and I will be their elohim, and they shall be my people,wherefore, come you forth out of the midst of them, and be separated, saith the lord, and an unclean thing do not touch, and I -- I will receive you, 
and I will be to you for a father, and you -- you shall be to me for sons and daughters, saith the lord almighty.'


[2. Cr 6:14-18]


Be not led astray; bad companionships corrupt good manners;

1. Cr 15:33, according to a lexicon, the Greek word homilia, translated as communications  in KJV, means also companionship, intercourse and communion.


The Hebrew word  tsadiyq is often translated as righteous.
A teacher teaches that ”when we look at the word tsadiyq we find that it is commonly paralleled with the word "rasha". Rasha is usually translated as "wicked" but has a concrete meaning of "to depart from the path and become lost". From this we can conclude that a tsadiyq is one who remains on the path.”

[I would translate the Hebrew word rasha as a wrong one, although it is usually translated as wicked in the KJV.  The Hebrew word resha is from the same root than rasha and resha means wrong. ]

A teacher teaches:

”We are  not  to be identifying with wicked. ”
[My own thought:  I would say we are not to be identifying with the wrong ones.]

For our commonwealth  is in the heavens, whence also a deliverer we await -- the lord Jesus messiah

 Phi 3:20

Then, therefore, you are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow-citizens of the holy ones, and of the household of elohim

 Eph 2:19

and you  are a choice race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people acquired, that the excellences you may shew forth of him who out of darkness did call you to his wondrous light;           1.Peter 2:9


Adulterers and adulteresses. have you not known that friendship of the world is enmity with elohim? whoever, then, may counsel to be a friend of the world, an enemy of elohim he is set


James 4:4

O the happiness of that one, who hath not walked in the counsel of the wrong ones. And in the way of sinners hath not stood, and in the seat of scorners hath not sat;

Psa 1:1

I think that wisdom of this world is bad. I think that higher education can be bad and misleading.  I think  that, for example, humanism and psychology are very misleading and contain a lot of lies. Beware of humanism, socialism,  cultural marxism, modern liberalism and feminism. I think that there is a lot of cultural marxist, humanistic  and feminist propaganda in universities, in some schoolbooks, in  media and also in  social media, and in some films and TV-series [maybe in many, I don't know, I don't have a TV anymore].  Beware of bad company also in social media, I think it is not wise to join to the Facebook. I think that here in my home country,  high school education is  bad and misleading, because it teaches quite a lot wisdom of this world, and because there was some cultural marxist and socialist propaganda in some high school books. High school and media gave me a false world view. 


Let no one deceive himself; if any one doth seem to be wise among you in this age -- let him become a fool, that he may become wise
for the wisdom of this world is foolishness with elohim, for it hath been written, 'Who is taking the wise in their craftiness;'
and again, 'The Lord doth know the reasonings of the wise, that they are vain.'            1.Cr. 3:18-20

J.  F. teaches:
”... Paul writes that 'Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up.' [1 Corinthians 8:1] Too much education has a tendency to make us arrogant and prideful, and it can hinder our relationships with others and with elohim.”

See that no one shall be carrying you away as spoil through the philosophy and vain deceit, according to the deliverance of men, according to the rudiments of the world, and not according to messiah

Col 2:8


I would not join to a political party.   'Become not yoked with others - unbelievers, for what partaking is there to righteousness and wrong,and what fellowship to light with darkness? and what concord to messiah with belial? or what part to a believer with an unbeliever?'


 I exhort, then, first of all, there be made supplications, prayers, intercessions, thanksgivings, for all men:  for kings, and all who are in authority, that a quiet and peaceable life we may lead in all piety and reverence,

1.Tim. 2:1-2











I don't celebrate common holidays anymore, so I don't celebrate Halloween, Labor's day,   New Year on the 1st  of January,  St Patrick's day, Valentine's day,   Mother's day, Father's day,  Easter and Christmas.
 I try to follow teachings of  Jesus the messiah  and his apostols, and  I have forsaken  such kind of  traditions which come from Roman catholic church and from her daughters,  and not from the Bible, that is the reason why I don't celebrate Christmas anymore.  Many teachers teach that Roman catholic church is the great whore [harlot] mentioned in the Book of  Revelation.

And there came one of the seven messengers, who were having the seven vials, and he spake with me, saying to me, 'Come, I will shew to you the judgment of the great whore, who is sitting upon the many waters,

Rev . 17:1


and upon her forehead was a name written: 'Secret, Babylon the great, the mother of the whores, and the abominations of the earth

 Rev. 17:5


And I heard another voice out of the heaven, saying, 'Come forth out of her, my people, that you may not partake with her sins, and that you may not receive of her plagues,
because her sins did follow -- unto the heaven, and elohim did remember her because her sins did follow -- unto the heaven, and elohim did remember her iniquities


 [Rev 18:4-5]


















There is a mistranslation in  the KJV in the verse 1.Tim  5:14. If  you look at the Greek text  you can notice that there is not the  word women [there is not the Greek word word  gynaikos in the Greek text]  in the verse 1. Tim. 5:14.   Compare  the verse  1.Cr. 7:28

I wish, therefore, younger ones to marry, to bear children, ...

from the verse 1. Tim 5:14, Young's literal translation

One teacher teaches concerning the verse 1.Tim 5:14  ”younger women--rather, as ellipsis ought to be supplied, "the younger widows," namely younger widows in general, as distinguished from the older widows  The "therefore" means seeing that young widows are exposed to such temptations, "I will," or "desire," &c. [1Ti 5:11-13 ]. The precept here that they should marry again is not inconsistent with 1Cr 7:40; for the circumstances of the two cases were distinct [compare 1Cr 7:26 ]”
 "He does not impose a law, but points out a remedy, to younger widows" .



honour widows who are really widows
and if any widow have children or grandchildren, let them learn first to their own house to show piety, and to give back a recompense to the parents, for this is right and acceptable before elohim
And she who is really a widow and desolate, hath hoped upon elohim, and doth remain in the supplications and in the prayers night and day,
But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth
and these things charge, that they may be blameless
and if any one for his own -- and especially for those of the household -- doth not provide, the faith he hath denied, and than an unbeliever he is worse
A widow -- let her not be enrolled under sixty years of age, having been a wife of one husband,
in good works being testified to: if she brought up children, if she entertained strangers, if saints' feet she washed, if those in tribulation she relieved, if every good work she followed after
and younger widows be refusing, for when they may revel against the messiah, they wish to marry,
having judgment, because the first faith they did cast away
and at the same time also, they learn to be idle, going about the houses; and not only idle, but also tattlers and busybodies, speaking the things they ought not
I wish, therefore, younger ones to marry, to bear children....


1Tim 5:3-14

And concerning the things of which you wrote to me: good it is for a man not to touch a woman,
and because of the whoredom let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her  own husband;
to the wife let the husband the due benevolence render, and in like manner also the wife to the husband
the wife over her own body hath not authority, but the husband; and, in like manner also, the husband over his own body hath not authority, but the wife. Defraud not one another, except by consent for a time, that you may be free for fasting and prayer, and again may come together, that the adversary may not tempt you because of your incontinency; and this i say by way of concurrence -- not of command, or I wish all men to be even as I myself am; but each his own gift hath of elohim, one indeed thus, and one thus


1. Cr. 7:1-7

Each in the calling in which he was called -- in this let him remain;
a slave -- wast thou called? be not anxious; but if also thou art able to become free -- use it rather
for he who is in the lord -- having been called a slave-- is the lord's freedman: in like manner also he the freeman, having been called, is slave of messiah
with a price ye were bought, become not slaves of men
each, in that in which he was called, brethren, in this let him remain with elohim
And concerning the virgins, a command of the lord I have not; and I give judgment as having obtained kindness from the lord to be faithful:
I suppose, therefore, this to be good because of the present distress, that it is good for a man that the matter be thus
Hast you been bound to a wife? seek not to be loosed; hast thou been loosed from a wife? seek not a wife.
But and if thou mayest marry, thou didst not sin; and if the virgin may marry, she did not sin; and such shall have tribulation in the flesh: and I spare you
And this I say, brethren, the time henceforth is having been shortened -- that both those having wives may be as not having;
and those weeping, as not weeping; and those rejoicing, as not rejoicing; and those buying, as not possessing
and those using this world, as not using it up; for passing away is the fashion of this world
And I wish you to be without anxiety; the unmarried is anxious for the things of the lord, how he shall please the lord;
and the married is anxious for the things of the world, how he shall please the wife.
The wife and the virgin have been distinguished: the unmarried is anxious for the things of the lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit, and the married is anxious for the things of the world, how she shall please the husband.
And this for your own profit I say: not that I may cast a noose upon you, but for the seemliness and devotedness to the lord, undistractedly,
and if any one doth think it to be unseemly to his virgin, if she may be beyond the bloom of age, and it ought so to be, what he willeth let him do; he doth not sin -- let him marry
And he who hath stood stedfast in the heart -- not having necessity -- and hath authority over his own will, and this he hath determined in his heart -- to keep his own virgin -- doth well;
 so that both he who is giving in marriage doth well, and he who is not giving in marriage doth better.
A wife hath been bound by law as long time as her husband may live, and if her husband may sleep, she is free to be married to whom she will -- only in the lord;
and she is happier if she may so remain -- according to my judgment; and i think I also have the spirit of elohim

1.Cr 7:39 -40
Notice the following  words  in the verses 1.Cr. 7:26-28 :
I suppose, therefore, this to be good because of the present distress, that it is good for a man that the matter be thus
Hast you been bound to a wife? seek not to be loosed; hast thou been loosed from a wife? seek not a wife.
But and if thou mayest marry, thou didst not sin; and if the virgin may marry, she did not sin; and such shall have tribulation in the flesh: and I spare you

 and the words ' she is happier if she may so remain -- according to my judgment'  in the verse 1.Cr. 7:40 .  I think that some girls and women have unrealistic expectations about marriage, and there is a risk that they will be disappointed because of their unrealistic expectations. I think that humanism, many films and tv-series and many novels [even some old novels] can cause unrealistic expectations. I encourage you to study what the Bible says about a man.






 This  last chapter is meant only for  women and girls, because it contains some advice how to dress.
A teacher teaches that ”a pious woman avoids calling attention to her physical beauty.”  I think that some girls and women  think that they dress modestly,  while they dress immodestly.  Don't cause temptations to men and boys.   If I would be a woman who dresses immodestly, I  would be terrified  about the condemnation on the judgment day. I think it  is a bad deed to dress immodestly. 

and they shall come forth; those who did the good things to a rising again of life, and those who committed the bad things to a rising again of judgment


John 5:29

And he said unto the disciples, 'It is impossible for the stumbling blocks not to come, but woe [to him]  through whom they come;

 Luk 17:1

and be not conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, for your proving what is the will of elohim -- the good, and acceptable, and perfect                Rom. 12:2

I think it is not modest to wear tight clothing,  and I think that  tight skirts and tight dresses are  not modest.  There was a  survey of men on the subject of womens clothing , and  the survey shows that
'tight clothing is at least as much of a potential problem for men as skimpy clothing.'
One man said: “I would say the number one problem is any garment that is form fitting,be it  ,---, skirt, dress, shirt, whatever. Anything that is tight, no matter how long it is.”
Another said: ...”tight clothing. Oh, it may very well be covering but it is revealing the shape in a woman. This can be even more tantalizing to a man.” Short skirts and short dresses and shorts hold a very serious potential for lust for men. One man said, “The higher up on a woman’s leg, the more lustful/tempting it becomes.

If a skirt or a dress is made of thin material, I think it is necessary to wear an underskirt with it.        I think that knee length  and mid-calf  length skirts  and  knee length and  mid-calf length dresses are not modest, they are not long enough.   But  sometimes when I work, I wear a mid-calf  length skirt with loose pants or loose jeans.  I think that sleeves shorter than  about elbow length, are not modest.
 I think it is good to  cloak  upper body with a big cloth [a shawl]. It also helps to cloak the shape of buttocks. I think about 59 inches  X 59 inches cloth is good.  Your shawl doesn't need to be similar. I think that knitted shawls are not modest, because they don't hide the figures of the body so well. I think that woven material is better.
  Fold  the cloth [the shawl] to triangle,[or actually it is not a triangle, but a pentagon, because   it  is better to fold  it  upper than from the middle  so it cloaks better.
Put the cloth  [shawl] over your shoulders.   [You can  round the angles by cutting. You can sew some strings onto the shawl, and tie the strings.]


 in like manner also the women ...

...with modesty and sobriety...

 ... not in braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or garments of great price,     
 but what is proper for women professing piety, through good works.  Let [a] woman be learning in silence in all subjection. For I do not permit [a] woman to be teaching, nor to be dominating [a] man, but to be in silence.  For Adam was first formed, then Eve.  And Adam was not deceived but the woman, having been deceived, into transgression came and she shall be saved through
the child-bearing, if they remain in faith, and love, and holiness, with sobriety. 

[1.Tim 2:9-15. I think that those verses don't mean that every  believing woman should give a birth to a child. But every believing woman has to remain in faith, and love, and holiness, with sobriety.]
