When the Jews were taken captive to Babylon in 586BC, Rabbinical law , Sanhedrin 7.5, outlawed the name of Yahuah, and required it to be replaced with Adoni, which means Lord. Even though the Hebrew text has been unchanged, the Greeks, Romans, English and most of the world, continue the Rabbinical tradition of replacing the name of Yahuah with Lord. The name, Yahuah, appears over 7000 times in Hebrew scripture.
This is one of the greatest deceptions ever designed by Satan, because it violates the first and third commandments. This is because Lord is a name used by Satan and other pagan gods. The commandments say that “I am Yahuah. You shall not have any other gods before me, or take the name of Yahuah in vain.” It also violates the commandment not to change any words in scripture. Yahuah says that only those that call on his name can be saved, and that He is the only savior. That is why he named His son, Yahusha, which means “Yahuah our Savior.” Yahuah has said over 357 times that he wants the whole world to honor, praise, glorify, teach, fear and call on His name. Most of the believers in the world have been disqualified from entering the kingdom of heaven because of these violations of the law. (Exodus 20:2-7; Joel 2:32: Isaiah 43:11; Acts 4:12)
The fourth commandment states that the seventh day is the Sabbath. In it you shall do no work and keep it holy. Anyone who works on that day shall surely be put to death. If you do not seek your own pleasure on that day, Yahuah will cause you to ride on the high hills of the earth. Believers are to rest and worship Yahuah on that day. Scripture says that observance of the Sabbaths and holy days is a mark of Yahuah on the hand and the forehead. It is a sign to Yahuah that the believer is one of His family. It is also a test of a believer’s faith and obedience. (Exodus 13:6,9; 20:8-11; 31:12-17; Isaiah 58:13)
The heresy of Sunday worship began in the 2nd century, described by Christian writers Ignatius, Justin Martyr and Mathetes. These authors were relied upon by the Romans and modern day apologists for Sunday worship.
The Romans hated the laws of Yahuah, practiced by the Jews and believers in Yahusha, called Nazarenes. The religion of “Christianity” began long before 200 BC with the worship of Serapis Christos, and Christos Mithra, the sun gods in Egypt and Rome. Many nations had sun gods called Christos or Khristos, such as Khristos Zeus and Krishna. In 325 AD, the Roman Emperor Constantine, outlawed all Jewish laws and ordered that all Christians worship on the day of the unconquerable sun. Roman Catholics claim this law as evidence that they are the leaders of the Christian world, because everyone obeys it. They also claim exclusive authority to change scripture. They enforced these laws for more than 1500 years, punishable by death. Believers today are still blindly following this Roman tradition, justified by the 2nd century heretics.
Satan has outlawed the laws of Yahuah many times in history. The Sabbath is his primary focus for disqualifying believers for the kingdom. Antiochus IV Epiphanes did it in 167BC. The communists did it in the 20th century. It will happen again during the tribulation at the end of the age. Making Sabbath keeping illegal will be a primary factor of the laws of the tribulation. Obeying it will be a sign that the believer is not a member of Yahuah’s family and will not be allowed to enter the kingdom of heaven.
In the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD, most of the original Nazarenes were killed. Satan inspired 2nd century heretics to successfully convince believers to separate themselves from “Jewish” laws. The doctrine of salvation was reduced to only salvation of the spirit for eternal life by faith alone, not of works. The doctrine of salvation of the soul for entrance into the kingdom, by works of obedience to the law and bearing fruit for the kingdom, has been ignored for 1700 years. The Catholics killed more than 50 million believers who were obedient to the law. Most believers have been disqualified for entrance into the kingdom because of violations of the law without repentance. A problem is that believers do not distinguish the difference between the spirit and the soul. Another problem is that believers do not distinguish between heaven and the kingdom of heaven, which is the city of New Jerusalem, the headquarters of heaven.
Even though the New Testament scriptures are filled with the doctrine of obedience to the law, believers claim that is only for the Jews, and are focused only on the salvation of the spirit, which does not require obedience to the law. However, salvation of the soul for entrance into the kingdom is only possible by obedience to the law and bearing fruit for the kingdom. Consequently most believers will be denied entrance into the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 7:21-23; 25:14-30; John 15:1-8)
When believers are obedient to Yahuah’s laws, it is a mark on their hand and forehead to identify them as one of Yahuah’s children. It is likely that a mark of the beast is obedience to his laws.
Exodus 13:6,9 “Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, and on the seventh day there shall be a feast to Yahuah. … It shall be as a sign to you on your hand and as a memorial between your eyes, that Yahuah’s law may be in your mouth;”
Why did Yahusha say that not everyone that does many wonders in His name will enter the Kingdom of Heaven?
Yahusha told the believers who said, that they had cast out demons and did many wonders in His name, to depart from Him because of their lawlessness. These believers were obviously filled with the power of the Holy Spirit, but they did not believe they were required to be obedient to the law in order to enter the kingdom of heaven. This is the condition of most believers today. (Matthew 7:21-23)
To qualify to be chosen to enter the kingdom of heaven, a believer must: (1) be baptized in the power of the Holy Spirit and pray in the spirit; (2) have faith in the word and the name of Yahusha; (3) be obedient to the law; (4) honor, praise, glorify, fear, and call on the name of Yahuah; (5) patiently endure training for leadership by persecution and suffering; (6) do righteous acts as faithful servants; and (7) bear fruit for the kingdom of heaven.
Outer darkness is the area of heaven that is outside the gates of the city of New Jerusalem, the headquarters of heaven. New Jerusalem glows like the sun. Disobedient believers that do not repent, will not be allowed into the city for 1000 years. But when the city is moved down to earth, the believers will have learned to be obedient and be allowed into the city. (Revelation 20:4-6; 22:14,15)
Yahuah uses the metaphor of fire to represent tribulation and suffering. which He uses to refine the character of believers, like silver and gold are refined by heat. He wants believers to develop character traits of love, joy, peace, patience, humility, obedience, and self-control, to be leaders in the kingdom of heaven. All believers will be tested by fire, to determine the quality of their character. (Malachi 3:2,3; 1 Corinthians 3:11-15)
Christmas and Easter are ancient pagan holidays celebrating the birthday of Nimrod, the original sun god and the resurrection of his wife, Ishtar, in an egg laid by a rabbit. People sacrificed their children and colored Ishtar eggs with their children’s blood, after fasting 40 days for her son Tammuz. These were Roman holidays for hundreds of years BC. Constantine, the Roman Emperor outlawed the holidays commanded by Yahuah, and required everyone to adopt the Roman holidays on pain of death. The sun gods were the original Christs, and the church held a Christ Mass on their birthday. The Roman church enforced these laws for 1500 years. Unfortunately believers today are still blindly following those traditions which will prevent them from entering the kingdom of heaven.
Yahusha the Messiah, was born on the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles in October. He was laid in a tabernacle, or tent, or Sukkah in Hebrew, as required by law. It is a violation of the laws of Yahuah to celebrate pagan holidays. (Leviticus 23:1-44)

In the parable of the ten virgins waiting to go into the kingdom, in Matthew 25: 1-13, only those that had an extra supply of oil were allowed in. Oil is a metaphor for the Holy Spirit. The only way a believer can obtain an extra supply of the Holy Spirit is to pray in the spirit. Yahusha said that believers must worship Yahuah by praying in the Spirit.
John 4:23.24 – “But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. Yahuah is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
1 Corinthians 14:2 – “he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to Yahuah, for no one understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries.”
Most believers are not baptized in the power of the Holy Spirit, or pray in the spirit. They have defiled their bodies by eating unclean food and committing sexual immorality. The Holy Spirit cannot enter a defiled body. Therefore, they will not be allowed into the kingdom of heaven. It is a simple matter for believers to ask Yahuah for baptism in the power of the Holy Spirit and pray in tongues. They only have to realize it is required and obey the dietary laws and laws of sexual immorality.
Yahuah claims that He is the only savior. Is there anyone who wants to disagree with Him?
Isaiah 43:11 – “I, even I, am Yahuah, and besides Me there is no savior.”
Joel 2:32 – “Whoever calls on the name of Yahuah will be saved.”
Yahuah named His Son, Yahusha (Zachariah 6:11-13), because it means, “Yahuah Our Righteousness.” (Jeremiah 33: 15,16) . Yahuah is the name above every name. But believers can be saved from all evil by calling on the name of Yahusha. The name, Jesus, is derived from the name Iesous, the Greek translation of Yahusha in the Septuagint Bible of 167 BC. This name was changed to Joshua in the English translation of the old testament. Believers would be much more successful if they used His correct name. Many believers call him Yeshua, the Hebrew word for salvation. This is not how the name Yahusha is spelled in Hebrew.
A plain reading of Genesis 1, makes it clear that the day begins at sunrise. Each day of the work of creation is completed before evening and morning. Morning is the end of the day. So each day is twenty four hours which begins and ends at sunrise. The phrase “evening and morning” only describes the night which was added at the end of the day.
Genesis 1:3-5 “Then Elohim said, ‘Let there be light’; and there was light. And Elohim saw the light, that it was good; and Elohim divided the light from the darkness. Elohim called the light Day and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.”
There are many scriptures that support this doctrine. Leviticus 23:27-32 instructs that fasting for the Day of Atonement begin on the evening of the 9th day and to end on the evening of the 10th day. This instruction is redundant, unnecessary and incompatible with the day beginning in the evening. If the 9th and 10th days began and ended in the evening, it would just say fast on the Day of Atonement.
The day after the crucifixion, on Passover, is the high Sabbath of Unleavened Bread. The law required the body to be buried before the Sabbath began (John 19:31). Joseph of Arimathea asked Pilate for the body of Yahusha in the evening, after the crucifixion. Pilate summoned a centurion to make sure He was dead (Mark 15:43-47). Then Joseph and Nicodemus obtained materials and prepared the body for burial. All this work likely was done passed evening. So the Sabbath had to begin in the morning.
When the women went to the tomb after the weekly Sabbath, four days later, the first day of the week began to dawn. If the Sabbath had ended in the evening, they would have gone in the evening. Clearly the Sabbath did not end until dawn.
Matthew 28:1 “Now after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb.”
It is obvious that the doctrine of beginning each day in the evening does not agree with scripture. Other scriptures that support the day beginning and ending in the morning include: Genesis 19:33-34 when they refer to “last night” and “the next day”; Leviticus 7:15, the sacrifice for the peace offering must be eaten the same day it is offered and not leave any of it until morning; Exodus 12:8-10, the Passover lamb was to be eaten in the night of the 14th and let none of it remain until morning; Numbers 33:3, the Israelites left Egypt on the 15th day after the Passover meal, which was during the night before, on the 14th day; Leviticus 23:5,6 says the same;
The books of Enoch and Jubilees include commandments of Yahuah to establish a calendar of 364 days only. Jubilees was dictated to Moses on Mount Sinai by Yahuah. The Israelites kept this calendar until they were taken to Babylon in 586 BC and conquered by the Greeks in 167 BC. The Jews were forced to adopt their lunar calendar. The Zadokite priests that were not killed escaped to Qumran and formed the community that hid the dead sea scrolls. They observed the eternal calendar which is popularly called the Enoch calendar.
The Pharisees, who were scholars, not priests, enforced the lunar calendar under the Greeks and the rule of the Maccabees. In 100 AD, the Pharisees excluded all books from the canon of the Bible that referred to the eternal calendar, such as Enoch, Jubilees, The Calendar of Priestly Divisions and King David’s Songs of the Sabbath Sacrifice. These books were prominent in the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Ethiopian Bible. There are many scriptures in the Bible that support the eternal calendar. However, English translators changed the Bible by translating the Hebrew word for “month” to “moon”. The phrase, “first of the month” became, “the new moon.” The Jewish calendar is a Babylonian calendar with Babylonian names for the months.
The problem with the lunar calendar, pointed out by Enoch and Jubilees, is that twelve moons is eleven days short of a year. So the holy days vary from 11 to 22 days every year, causing sacred days to be ignored and the Holy days to fall on unclean days. It also requires every third year to have 13 months in opposition to scripture. All the host of heaven celebrate the Sabbaths and Feast Days according to the eternal calendar. The lunar calendar causes believers to violate the commandments of Yahuah, excluding them from the kingdom of heaven.
Each year of Yahuah’s eternal calendar consists of exactly fifty-two weeks and twelve months of thirty days each. The year also has four seasons of thirteen weeks or ninety-one days. At the beginning of each quarter there is a day of remembrance, not counted in the month. The days of remembrance occur on the first day of each quarter, 3/31, 6/31, 9/31 and 12/31. They are memorials to four events which occurred during the flood.
With this calendar, the days of the month and the days of the week stay fixed in relation to one another, because the year is equally divided by 52 weeks. So the Holy days are fixed on the same day of the month and week every year. (Jubilees 6:23-38). The calendar and holy days are the same every year for eternity.
The extra day is eliminated from the 364 day calendar by resetting the first day of the year on the day after the vernal equinox every year. The 365th day causes the Gregorian week days to move every year with respect to the days of the month. But the eternal 364 day calendar doesn’t count the 365th day as a week day. This causes the 7th day Sabbath to be on a different Gregorian week day every year. In 2021, the weekly Sabbath is on Gregorian Wednesday.
