FALSE CLAIMS OF LEGITIMACY

Any religion, denomination or church that is claiming to be the following is false or doing evil: 1. The source and holder of the complete TRUTH 2. The LIFE-GIVER or source of life 3. The only one TRUE 4. The only ones called by God 5. Source of miracles, salvation and deliverance These by making others outside them appear as LOST, deceived, spiritually dead, false, pagans; are actually the ones that are false and claiming FALSE legitimacy in such areas. We know that only God is ALL-KNOWING and ALL-POWERFUL. The Messiah is the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE. No religion or church is the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE. Through such false claims many are deceived to think that they can have eternal life only by being a mere member of such religions or denominations. As long as you wear religious labels or brands while unconverted inside, they shall consider and declare you as SAFE and SAVED through their actions (actions speak louder than words!!!). Act 2:38 And Kĕpha said to them, “Repent, and let each one of you be immersed in the Name of יהושע Messiah for the forgiveness of sins.1 And you shall receive the gift of the Set-apart Spirit. 1Pe_1:3 Blessed be the Elohim and Father of our Master יהושע Messiah, who according to His great compassion has caused us to be born again to a living expectation through the resurrection of יהושע Messiah from the dead, 1Pe_1:23 having been born again – not of corruptible seed, but incorruptible – through the living Word of Elohim, which remains forever, Not everyone belonging to a religion or denomination by mere membership shall be SAVED but those that do the will of the Father. Mat_7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Mat 7:21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Master, Master,’ shall enter into the reign of the heavens, but he who is doing the desire of My Father in the heavens. Mat_12:50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother. Elijah thought he was the only true prophet left yet God told him that God had reserved seven thousand men that had not bowed their knees to Baal.

THE REMNANT

The term Remnant in this aspect means: 1. Remaining part of the ORIGINAL 2. Remaining part of the TRUE 3. Leftover 2Ch_34:9 And when they came to Hilkiah the high priest, they delivered the money that was brought into the house of God, which the Levites that kept the doors had gathered of the hand of Manasseh and Ephraim, and of all the remnant of Israel, and of all Judah and Benjamin; and they returned to Jerusalem. Exo_26:12 And the remnant that remaineth of the curtains of the tent, the half curtain that remaineth, shall hang over the backside of the tabernacle. Isa_11:11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. Isa_11:16 And there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt. The Question here is: Remaining part of what? Of the new? Or of the man-made? Or of the original started by God? This leads to us finding out what this original or true is. Here we are talking about the REMNANT of GOD’s children and HIM knows them well. They are individuals and never are they a religion or a denomination. They are scattered everywhere! Deu_28:54 So that the man that is tender among you, and very delicate, his eye shall be evil toward his brother, and toward the wife of his bosom, and toward the remnant of his children which he shall leave: 2Ki_19:4 It may be the LORD thy God will hear all the words of Rabshakeh, whom the king of Assyria his master hath sent to reproach the living God; and will reprove the words which the LORD thy God hath heard: wherefore lift up thy prayer for the remnant that are left. THERE IS A TRUE REMNANT OF THE ORGINAL EKKLESIA (EARLY CHURCH)
Rom_9:27 Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved: Rom_11:5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. Rev_12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. These REMNANT can be identified with the EARLY CHURCH (EKKLESIA); they are same, look alike, got same characteristics, they got the same Spirit. The Early Church had the following characteristics :
1. They had the Messiah as their Head and so are the Remnant; denominations have human presidents as the heads of the denominations 2. They had the Heavenly Jerusalem as their headquarters; denominations have earthly headquarters 3. They had ELDERS and DEACONS as Congregation leadership; denominations today have one man called pastor as the overall leader assisted by elders and deacons, and various leadership structures not in scriptures 4. They obeyed the Ten Commandments 5. They tithed from land produce, livestock once per year according to scriptures and also every third year for strangers, poor, etc. 6. They observed the Passover (Lord’s supper) once per year according to the commandments 7. They observed the day of PENTECOST and ATONEMENT as days when the Spirit came and atonement was made for them, respectively 8. They had all things in common and none among them lacked anything; denominations are not like this 9. They were free from false doctrines like TRINITY, RAPTURE, etc. They taught that YHWH is ONE. Denominations teach about a TRINITY God which the EARLY CHURCH Never taught. (They are not the remnant of the early) The REMNANT of the above EARLY CHURCH should be exactly like them in obedience to the Master and in having the Spirit of the Father. It should be easy to identify the REMNANT with the EARLY CONGREGATION because they are same in every aspect. Anyone of you that is FILLED with the SPIRIT of TRUTH regardless of where you are right now, are a REMNANT of the TRUE Ekklesia whether men like it or not, whether denominations recognize it or not, whether denominations reject you or not. Those that do not have His Spirit are not His. Even those that claim to be the REMNANT in various denominations if they do not have His Spirit are NONE of HIS. The current remnant are the current TRUE INDIVIDUAL believers and not a DENOMINATION. He shall not SAVE A DENOMINATION but He shall SAVE people. Joe_2:32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call. Mic_2:12 I will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of thee; I will surely gather the remnant of Israel; I will put them together as the sheep of Bozrah, as the flock in the midst of their fold: they shall make great noise by reason of the multitude of men. Zep_2:9 Therefore as I live, saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Surely Moab shall be as Sodom, and the children of Ammon as Gomorrah, even the breeding of nettles, and saltpits, and a perpetual desolation: the residue of my people shall spoil them, and the remnant of my people shall possess them. Zep_3:13 The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed and lie down, and none shall make them afraid. QUESTIONS
1. Are you part of the Remnant? 2. Do you think your denomination is the Remnant? POINTS TO NOTE 1. The REMNANT are individuals scattered everywhere! 2. There is no single DENOMINATION on earth that is the REMNANT as a DENOMINATION. Remnants are individuals that are obedient to YHWH. 3. The prophet of God thought he was the only REMNANT yet God told him that He had reserved 7000 men as remnants that had not bowed their knees to BAAL (Rom_11:4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.) 4. The true REMNANT are those individuals today that are filled with the Spirit of TRUTH (Rom 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.) Rom 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. Rom 8:15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. Rom 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

RESURRECTION FROM TOMBS OR FROM HEAVEN/HELL FIRE?

Some teach that when someone dies they either go to HEAVEN if they were real believer or to HELL FIRE if they were sinners. What do scriptures say? Will people resurrect from either HEAVEN or HELL FIRE onto the EARTH back for JUDGMENT when the Son of YHWH comes to judge the world??? The following shall answer these questions: 1. THOSE IN TOMBS SHALL HEAR HIS VOICE Joh 5:28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, Joh 5:29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. 1Th_4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 2. THE DEAD ARE NOT CONSCIOUS Ecc 9:5 For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. Ecc 9:6 Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun. 3. PUNISHMENT SHALL BE AFTER JUDGMENT Heb 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: POINTS TO NOTE (a) The Master shall resurrect DEAD people and not people that are living (in heaven or hell fire). He shall come from heaven; how shall He resurrect believers that shall be in heaven at that time? (b) Punishment shall be only after judgment is passed and not before. (c) The story of the Rich Man and Lazarus was a parable and was not a real life event that happened. WHAT ABOUT those people with testimonies about people currently suffering right now in heal fire? Those are LIES and are against the TRUTH that is in inspired scriptures.

THE MESSIAH NEVER SHED ANYONE’S BLOOD

The Messiah came to seek and save that which was lost and never came to condemn nor SHED anyone’s blood. Any self-proclaimed follower of the Messiah should not engage in activities that bring destruction, condemnation to man-kind and shedding of blood of their enemies. Instead the Messiah prayed to the Father that He may forgive those that rejected and condemned Him (Messiah). Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Eph 6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Eph 6:14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; Eph 6:15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Eph 6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. Eph 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Some said, “Rescue people from the GRIP of Satan to the Salvation of YHWH. This is serious WAR! This is BLOODLESS WAR we need to engage in; though flesh shed our blood we do not fight against flesh and blood but a spiritual war” Mat 5:9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, because they shall be called sons of Elohim. Mat 5:10 “Blessed are those persecuted for righteousness’1 sake, because theirs is the reign of the heavens.

DID ATONEMENT HAPPEN IN 1844 OR WAS SATAN THROWN DOWN IN 1914?

There are teachings that say ATONEMENT happened in 1844 despite the LAMB of YHWH in the year of DEATH being offered while some teach that SATAN has been having access to heaven even after the Master ascended to heaven to the year 1914 when he was thrown down from heaven to the earth and caused WORLD WAR during this same year. Is this TRUE? What do scriptures say? 1. ATONEMENT This never happened in 1844 in heaven as some teach. For us to understand and know what really happened we must learn about the DAY of ATONEMENT in the first covenant which pointed to the DAY of ATONEMENT by the LAMB of YHWH. “For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: Nor yet that He should offer Himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others;…” Hebrews 9:24-28 What is Atonement? It is reconciliation, the process by which YHWH and man can be once again become reconciled. Read Exodus 32:30, Leviticus 9:7, Leviticus 16 and Romans 5:11. The day that atonement was made for the sins of Israel is called the Day of Atonement. It was observed on the 10th day of the 7th month (Tisri). On this appointed day, the High Priest would enter within the holy of holies to appear before YHWH with blood of sacrifices and sprinkle its blood upon the mercy seat of the ark. Read Leviticus 16, Leviticus 23:27-32 & Leviticus 25:9. It should be a memorial for all truly born again and sanctified believers. The Messiah entered into the holy of holies to make atonement for us at an appointed time and season i.e. on the 10th day of the seventh month of the same year of His Death and Resurrection. “And the LORD spake unto Moses, Saying, Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: It shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD. And ye shall do no work in that same day: for it is a day of atonement, to make an atonement for you before the LORD your God…” Leviticus 23:26-31 “It shall be unto you a Sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month at even, from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your Sabbath.” Leviticus 23:32 “And ye shall have on the tenth day of this seventh month an holy convocation; and ye shall afflict your souls: ye shall not do any work therein.” Numbers 29:7 The rituals and sacrifices of this festival are found in the whole chapter of Leviticus 16. “And this shall be a statute forever unto you: that in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, ye shall afflict your souls, and do no work at all, whether it be one of your own country, or a stranger that sojourneth among you: For on that day shall the priest make an atonement for you, to cleanse you, that ye may be clean from all your sins before the LORD. It shall be a Sabbath of rest unto you, and ye shall afflict your souls, by a statute forever.”Leviticus 16:29-31 The following should be observed on the Day of Atonement: (a) Ye shall afflict your souls. No manner of instruments should be heard in the congregation. (b) Ye shall do no work at all. It shall be a Sabbath of rest. (c) Holy convocation unto you. It shall be a statute forever. Atonement was made that the children of Israel might be clean from all their sins before the MASTER. “And the priest, whom He shall anoint, and….. And he shall make an atonement for the holy sanctuary, and he shall make an atonement for the tabernacle of the congregation, and for the altar, and he shall make an atonement for the priests, and for all the people of the congregation.” Leviticus 16:32-33 The priest would make atonement once a year for the following: (a) Holy Sanctuary (b) Tabernacle of the congregation. (c) Altar (d) Priests (e) All the people of the congregation. “And this shall be an everlasting statute unto you, to make an atonement for the children of Israel for all their sins once a year. And he did as the LORD commanded Moses.” Lev 16:34 This atonement once a year at an appointed time and season of the year pointed to that which the Messiah would make at the same appointed time and season. Hebrews 9:23-28 & Malachi 3:1-5 The Messiah offered up Himself for our sins once. Hebrews 7:27-28; 4:14
He is a minister of the Sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Master pitched, and not man. Read Hebrews 8:2-3 & Daniel 8:13-14. Our minds should by faith be directed to the heavenly Sanctuary of which the earthly was a mere pattern. The Messiah entered into the heavenly Sanctuary to make atonement for us. “Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, see, Saith He, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount.” Hebrews 8:5 Read Hebrews 9:1-10, 13-15, 22 & Hebrews 10:1-3. The Messiah made atonement for us once in the heavenly Sanctuary at the appointed season. “For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: Nor yet that He should offer Himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others;…” Hebrews 9:24-28 “By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: But this man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God. From henceforth expecting till His enemies be made His footstool.
For by one offering He hath perfected forever them that are sanctified.” Hebrews 10:10-14 The Messiah made atonement for us once and for all, and is now sat on the right hand of YHWH till His enemies are made His footstool. The earthly sanctuary with its offerings of the blood of animal sacrifices was a shadow of the heavenly sanctuary. Hebrews 10:4 The old sanctuary was cleansed once a year. The Messiah cleansed the heavenly sanctuary once. When the Messiah ascended into heaven after His resurrection, He (being the High Priest) made atonement for us at the appointed time in a better sanctuary. Read Hebrews 9:23-28. The Messiah as High Priest is: (a) Not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true. Hebrews 9:24 (b) Entered into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of YHWH for us. Hebrews 9:29 The Messiah offered Himself once. Read Hebrews 7:26-28, Hebrews 9:12 & Hebrews 9:28. He is sat on the right hand of YHWH. “But this man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God; From henceforth expecting till His enemies be made His footstool.” Hebrews 10:12-13 2. SATAN THROWN DOWN (not in 1914) Is it true that Satan has been having access to heaven up to the year 1914 when he was thrown down from heaven? The DAY ATONEMENT shall give us further guidance. Read Leviticus 16.
“And he shall take of the congregation of the children of Israel two kids of the goats for a sin offering, and one ram for a burnt offering.” Leviticus 16:5 The animals for the offering were: (a) 2 kid of the goats – for a sin offering. (b) 1 Ram – for a burnt offering. Read Leviticus 16:6-7. From this scripture we note two important points: (a) Bullock – Aaron was to offer him for atonement for himself and his house (Leviticus 16:11-14) (b) 2 goats – Aaron was to present them before the Master at the door of the tabernacle. Casting lots upon the 2 goats Read Leviticus 16:8-11. Two points are worthy noting again: (a) One lot for the Master – offered him for a sin offering. Leviticus 16:9, 15-20 (b) The other lot for the Scapegoat – presented him alive before the Master, to make atonement with him, and to let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness. Scapegoat “And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, Putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness: And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness.” Leviticus 16:21-22 The scapegoat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto the land not inhabited. Satan is the Father of all sins and lies. Satan is behind all sin and evil. Two important points should be noted from Leviticus 16:21-22: (a) The Messiah bore our sins as a sinless offering to save us from the judgment to come. Only the holy Lamb of YHWH could die in our place. He bore our sins as an acceptable offering for sin. Only the holy Son of YHWH could die to save us from death. The Messiah bore our sins by reason of His holiness and an acceptable offering to YHWH for us. By His holy blood was atonement made for us. By His death we are saved. By His blood we were reconciled to YHWH. Read Isaiah 53:4-10, Leviticus 16:9, 15-20. (b) Not only did the Messiah bear our sins as typified by the scapegoat which was sent away by hand of a fit man into the wilderness but the Messiah also defeated Satan by His blood as the Lamb of YHWH and the Word. Therefore, Satan was thrown out of heaven only after the resurrection of the Messiah for the blood of the Master was necessary to defeat Satan. PLACE OF ATONEMENT Atonement was done in the most holy place where the presence of YHWH was.
The Son of YHWH, as a High Priest, entered into the most holy place for atonement of our sins. “For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:” Hebrews 9:24 The Messiah, after ascension, entered into the most holy place to appear before the mercy seat of YHWH. YHWH’s presence was on the mercy seat in the most holy place. That is where the presence of YHWH was. It was not in the holy place. Two Goats 1. One was killed on the Day of Atonement for its blood to be offered. This sacrifice represented the Lamb of YHWH. The Messiah as Lamb of YHWH bore sins of the whole world. Read Isaiah 53:6, 11, Leviticus 16:15 & Hebrews 9:28; 10:14 2. The other, scapegoat, was not killed but was taken to a land not inhabited. This typified the Lamb of YHWH taking away sin and also defeating Satan through the blood since He (Messiah) bore our sins in His body. On the Day of Atonement, the blood of the lamb was offered, and the scapegoat separated from the camp into the wilderness. Similarly, when the Messiah made an atonement for our sins in the heavenly temple as a High Priest, on the Day of Atonement (10th day of the 7th month of the same year of His Death and Resurrection), Satan was no longer allowed access to heaven. He was not thrown down in 1914 or 1844. The three great annual Old Testament festivals were in the following order:
1. Passover – The Messiah died on this day. 2. Pentecost – Set-Apart Spirit received. 3. Atonement – The Son of YHWH as High Priest made atonement for our sins & Satan was thrown down to the earth in the same year. After the Messiah was impaled on the day of the Passover, it was necessary that the Set-Apart Spirit be received by the Church before Satan was thrown down to the earth after the Day of Atonement. Read John 16:8-11. “And He (the Messiah) said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.” Luke 10:18 “Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.” John 12:31 “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon: and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not: neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” Revelation 12:7-9 Rev 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. Rev 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
Rev 12:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. Rev 12:13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. Rev 12:14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
Rev 12:15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. Rev 12:16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. Rev 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. They overcame Satan by the blood of the sacrificed lamb. Revelation 12:11 The dragon was thrown down during or after the Day of Atonement, after the Messiah ascended into heaven. Read Revelation 12:5, 12-13. The Day of Atonement happened the same year of the Messiah’s death and resurrection. The following are the three great annual festivals in their order of occurrence in a year: 1. PASSOVER 2. PENTECOST 3. ATONEMENT They are YHWH’s. They are not man made. Read Leviticus 23:1-3. “These are the feasts of the LORD, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons” Leviticus 23:4 These festivals belong to YHWH and must be proclaimed at their appointed times and seasons. These were yearly festivals that were proclaimed at YHWH’s appointed times. “To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven…” Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 Three great events happened on these great festivals as follows: 1. Passover: Yehoshua the Messiah was impaled i.e. He paid the penalty of our sins. He died on our behalf to save us. The Master’s Supper was ordained on the same day before His death. It was appointed that He would be impaled on this day. 2. Pentecost: The Church (120 believers) in the Upper room received the Set-Apart Spirit and became the Messiah’s true witnesses. It was appointed that the Set-Apart Spirit would be sent on this day. The Master knew it. Acts 1:8; 2:1-4 3. Atonement: Yehoshua entered into holy of holies in the heavenly temple and offered His blood on our behalf as atonement for our sins on the Day of Atonement. It was appointed in YHWH’s time that the High Priest the Messiah would make atonement in heaven on this day. Lev_17:11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.

EVOLUTION THEORY PROVEN FALSE!

Now, among many man made gods there is one Eternal and True Elohim! 1Co 8:5 For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) 1Co 8:6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him. The Bible says, prove and test all things. We can examine science and it all comes to proof of existence of the one true God. See, evolution has failed to stand a test of time but is only real to those that don’t think rationally and clearly. Only accept facts and no superstitions, myths and traditions like evolution. 1Th 5:21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Someone said, “As we reason, do not suppose or hope” Assumptions do not count. Therefore, evolution assumptions do not count. 1. The First Law of Thermodynamics: is stated as “Matter and energy can be neither created nor destroyed”. There are natural processes that can alter either matter or energy in this way. This means that there is no new matter or energy coming into existence and there is no new matter or energy passing out of existence. All who state that the universe came into existence from nothing violate the first law of thermodynamics which was established by the very scientific community who now seem willing to ignore it. In summary, this law plainly demonstrates that the universe, and all matter and energy within it, must have had a divine origin – a specific moment in which it was created by someone who was all-powerful. 2. Radiation proves that some elements have a time when they did not exist before. For example, the process of Uranium turning into Radium is very long, the Radium turns into Lead in 1590 years. Remember, all of them – Uranium, Radium, Thorium, Radon, Polonium, Francium, Protactinium and others – have not existed forever. This represents absolute proof that matter came into existence or, in other words, matter has not always existed. You cannot have something slowly come into existence from nothing ! (Illogical reasoning). No Rational person could believe that the entire universe – including all of the radioactive elements that prove there was a specific time of beginning – gradually came into existence BY ITSELF!
Through your own efforts, try build something – anything – from nothing. Even with your creative power engaged in the effort, you would never be able to do it. You will not be able – in a hundred lifetimes of trying – to produce a single thing from nothing! This is proof that the existing natural realm demands the existence of a Great Creator!
3. The Second Law of Thermodynamics is best summarised by saying that everything moves toward disorder – or a condition known as entropy. Evolutionists teach that everything is constantly evolving into a higher and more complex order. They believe things continue to get better and better instead of worse and worse. When applied to the universe, the second law of thermodynamics indicates that the universe is winding down – moving toward disorder or entropy – not winding up or moving toward more perfect order and structure. In short, the entire universe is winding down! Even evolutionists admit the theory (myth) of evolution and the second law of thermodynamics are completely incompatible with each other. The 2nd law of thermodynamics is universally accepted because people do not prove and test these things. One Geologist wrote: “It must be significant that nearly all the evolutionary stories I learned as student…have debunked’ (Dr Derek V. Ager, Dept of Geology, Imperial College, London, The Nature of the Fossil Record, Proceedings of the Geological Assoc., Vol 87, 1976, pp 1132-1133). Many evolutionists have tried to argue that humans are 99% similar chemically to apes and blood precipitation tests do indicate that the Chimpanzee is people’s closest relative. Yet regarding this we must observe the following: “Milk chemistry indicates that the donkey is man’s closest relative.’ ‘Cholesterol level tests indicate that the garter snake is man’s closest relative.’ ‘Tear enzyme chemistry indicates that the chicken is man’s closest relative.’ ‘On the basis of another type of blood chemistry test, the butter bean is man’s closest relative”’ (Morris, Henry M., The Twilight of Evolution, Grand Rapids: baker Book House, 1967) Explosions: Everyone has witnessed explosions. Have you every seen one that was orderly? Or one that created a watch or a clock? Or one that produced a single thing of exquisite design – instead of certain result of chaos and destruction? If you threw a million hand grenades, you would see them produce chaos and destruction a million times! There would never be an exception. Dr. B. G. Ranganathan said, “… the probability of life originating from accident is comparable to the unabridged dictionary resulting from an explosion in a printing chop” (Origins?, p.15). Another scientist, Sir Fred Hoyle, an English astronomer and professor of Astronomer at Cambridge University, stated, “The chance that higher forms have emerged in this way is comparable with the chance that a tornado sweeping through a junk yard might assemble a Boeing 747 from the materials therein” (Nature, Vol. 294, Nov. 12, 1981, “Hoyle on Evolution,” p. 105. “LIFE REQUIRES A LIFEGIVER”

Assembly of what? Of people or of the congregation of ELOHIM. Concerning the word, Assembly, From Interlinear Scripture Analyzer (ISA) we have: H5712 `edah ay-daw’ feminine of H5707 in the original sense of fixture; a stated assemblage (specifically, a concourse, or generally, a family or crowd). Compare H5713. KJV: assembly, company, congregation, multitude, people, swarm. This describes mainly the STATE of assemblage Let us look again at the following scriptures to find out more about the word Assembly: Heb_12:23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, G3831 paneguris pan-ay’-goo-ris from G3956 and a derivative of G58; a mass-meeting, i.e. (figuratively) universal companionship. KJV: general assembly. Jas_2:2 For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment; Heb_10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. G4864 sunagoge soon-ag-o-gay’ from (the reduplicated form of) G4863; an assemblage of persons; specially, a Jewish “synagogue” (the meeting or the place); by analogy, a Christian church. KJV: assembly, congregation, synagogue. Gen_49:6 O my soul, come not thou into their secret; unto their assembly, mine honour, be not thou united: for in their anger they slew a man, and in their selfwill they digged down a wall. Exo_12:6 And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening. Lev_4:13 And if the whole congregation of Israel sin through ignorance, and the thing be hid from the eyes of the assembly, and they have done somewhat against any of the commandments of the LORD concerning things which should not be done, and are guilty; Lev_8:4 And Moses did as the LORD commanded him; and the assembly was gathered together unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. Num_14:5 Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the children of Israel.

Heb_10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. WHERE WAS THE HEADQUARTERS OF THE CONGREGATION OF ISRAEL? It was at JERUSALEM. The headquarters of the present congregation of believers today is the heavenly JERUSALEM and not any man- made Headquarters. Mat 5:34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne: Mat 5:35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. Gal_4:26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all. Heb_12:22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, POINTS TO NOTE 1. In the Ekklesia was called the “Congregation of ELOHIM” or “Congregation of Israel” 2. Today the Ekklesia is called the “Congregation of ELOHIM” or “Congregation of Believers”. This is what we are all encouraged to follow as the pattern that ELOHIYM set up for His people. The calling of our selves various names of our denominations (Pentecostal, Catholic, Lutheran, Wesleyans, SDA, etc.) is a wastage of time and lack of understanding of the original plan of ELOHIYM. 3. The word “Assembly” was too general a term used which had several meanings but the main meaning was the act of assembling or the state of assemblage while the “Congregation of ELOHIM” was still called His congregation whether they were in state of gathering or not. The whole Congregation would assemble and this would be referred to as the “Assembly of the Congregation of Israel”
