And this message of the Kingdom shall be preached in the whole world, as a Testimony to the nations, and then the end will come." Mt. 24:14.
WHAT IS "WORSHIP"?
The word "worship" is two words, worth-ship. It simply means the outward showing of respect and esteem to a higher authority. The key elements necessary are fear and humility, and ultimately LOVE. Fear is not used in the sense of terror, but rather respect for another's awesome power and authority. The Hebrew concept basically has always been termed obeisance, or the status of a servant who obeys his master. The word "obey" comes from the Hebrew word OBED, or servant; the prophet "Obadiah" means servant of Yah. The generosity and Fatherhood of hwhy demands His creatures to return praise and recognition. He has feelings; wrath, humor, compassion, and desires a relationship with each of us. How would you feel if your pet ignored you, and even bit your hand whenever you came into its "space"? But He considers us His children! Rabbi OWWhy even calls us "brothers" (and sisters). The Writings of the TaNaKh and Brit Chadasah show His love for us by providing the rules for living in peace, and it is the perfect "book" of law. It is a "light" for us to "walk" in, and without it we stumble in "darkness". He has literally created us to be a part of His family. Worship is something we perform, and is seen as obedience. In the hands of men, this "worship" has become perverted, and we serve another entity, deceived by diversion tactics. Worship is not something we do only one day each week, but everyday; by adopting the pattern of living we see in the 10 Commandments. These are the living waters, and the "food" which OWWhy desired Cephas
(Peter) to "feed" His sheep. Today, the sheep are being "fleeced", and are feeding the predators, or wolves, who parasitically plunder them and lead them away from obeying hYhy. The parable about the "hirelings" who work in the vineyard while the Owner is away illustrate that they want the "business" to be their own (Mt. 21:33-45). This whole planet is the vineyard. HYhy "dwells" in His Temple, His people, who make up the "living stones". OWYhy threw the merchants out of the physical Temple, who had turned it into a den of thieves. Instead of being a place of worship and learning, it had become defiled because tradition had turned it into a business.
LEGALISM or ILLEGALISM? Obeying specific "Commandments" with the thinking that this somehow "earns" salvation, or a place in the coming Kingdom, has been called "legalism". This grew out of the Reformation, when the teaching of the Protestant sects based their doctrine of salvation on the work of OWYhy and His atoning death. We are "saved" by "grace", and grace alone. Ya-huchanon 3:16-21 needs to be studied carefully; one should not stop reading at verse 16: "For hVhy so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For hYhy did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. Who ever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the Name of hYhy's one and only Son. This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of Light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the Light, and will not come into the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the Truth comes into the Light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done in hYhy. "Obedience is evidence of salvation. What is "Light", and "Truth"? Proverbs 6:23 defines "Light" as the Torah. The word that underlies "teaching" is Torah. The "Truth" is the "Word" of hYhy, Yahuchanon 17:17. Once again, the "Word" is the Torah, made into flesh in OWYhy; as if the Commandments, the personality of hYhy , became a man and lived a perfect life without transgressing His own teachings. He gave us the "Keys" to the Kingdom: TORAH, which produces LOVE. What is love? "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking. It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the Truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails." 1 Cor. 13. The fruit of the Spirit, and the fruit of the Torah, produces: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. "Fo//y is joy to him who lacks sense, but a man of righteousness walks straight." Pr. 15:21. Something that is "legal" is right. The word is based on "logic", and involves "reasoning". The opposite of legalism is illegalism, and that is what separates us from our Creator! You will recognize a tree by its fruit. The 10 Commandments produce this fruit. Although the Torah is a gift and model for living, we cannot obey it in our flesh ~ we need something more: the New Covenant! What is that? When people read Galatians and other texts, they misunderstand what is being spoken of as "the Law". There is the MORAL law that defines "sin", and there is the CEREMONIAL law, that atoned for "sin". A life lived ignoring the MORAL law ~ with murder, theft, adultery, idolatry, etc., is doomed to the second death in the Lake of Fire. But hardly anyone would call it "legalism" if they obeyed certain moral laws. The CEREMONIAL law made atonement, but it could not rescue permanently, because it involved animal deaths, in place of the individual dying for the sins. The ceremonial law that cannot "save" pointed the way to the permanent solution: the death of the perfect sacrifice, OWYhy. The blood of the New Covenant covers us permanently, ending the ceremonial law. It is the law of "sin and death" that were ordinances against us, nailed to the wood. It was not the MORAL law that was "done away", but the CEREMONIAL law. How then, can we obey the MORAL laws? This is where the New Covenant comes into play! The Old Covenant was the blood of animals ~ the New is the blood of OWYhy. It is our belief in the Resurrection, and the reality of it, that we have eternal life. We receive the Spirit of OWYhy when we confess with our mouth and believe in our heart that He was raised from the dead. He comes into us, and WRITES the moral law (Torah) on our hearts and minds, enabling us to LOVE the Commandments! You will not live a life ignoring them, because this "change" inside you causes you to agree with the moral laws. The "Law of Liberty" is our freedom ~ not to sin, but rather our freedom from sin; sinning against the moral laws (and we don't have to sacrifice animals). Mashiach OWYhy really does save His people from sin, as His Name says! The deciding factor is: do you LOVE the Commandments? "If you love Me, you will obey what I command." Yn. 14:15. When you can say "I love the Torah", He has "circumcised" your heart. Even Daniel, Dawid, Yesha Yahu, Mosheh, Adam, etc., who lived by the moral law could not obtain eternal life by it; but because OWYhy resurrected, these captives were delivered from the ceremonial law that was against them. Stop and read Psalm 1, and Psalm 119. "Oh, how I love your Torah! I meditate on it all day long. Your Commands make me wiser than my enemies..." Ps. 119:97,98. And, my friend, THAT is what "grace" is! It is the gift of hYhy to receive a LOVE for the Truth. "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith (emunah), and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of hYhi—not by works (ceremonial offerings), so that no one can boast. For we are hYhy's workmanship, created in Mashiach OWYhy to do good works, which hYhy prepared in advance for us to do." (Those "good works" prepared in advance are the Torah.) Eph. 2:8-10. This has stood in doctrinal opposition to "James" (Ya'akob) 2:17-20, who after explaining that lawbreakers (non-legalists) will be judged, says: ". . . Faith, by itself, if it is not accompanied by works, is dead. But someone will say, 'You have faith; I have works'. Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do. You believe there is one Elohim; Good! Even the demons believe that — and shudder. You foolish man, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless?" What he is saying is, obedience is not the thing that saves us, but when we are seen obeying the Torah, it is evidence of our salvation. There is only forgiveness of sins against Torah if there is repentance, the turning away from sin, and living by the Torah. Martin Luther was used to spearhead the understanding, but there was more to comprehend. The complete understanding became cut short, no doubt because the adversary saw how close to the Truth people were getting. He began his INQUISITION, murdering over 83 million people over a 600-year period. The junkpile of history should now begin to form a picture for you, if we are assembling it correctly. Love is the key! You obey your Earthly father as a child, partly out of fear; but as you mature you begin to obey because you love your father, and do not want to let him down. Our Father says, "Love Me, and keep My Commandments."We show Him we love Him when we obey. It's not "legalism", it's LOVE. And that is what worship is.
TITHING: "Religion that hYhy our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: To look after orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." Ya'akob 1:27.
"There were no needy persons among them. For from time-to-time, those who owned lands or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales and put it at the apostles' feet, and it was distributed to anyone as he had need." Acts 4:34,35. Tithing is the area exploited by the predators (wolves), which 2 Pet. 2 calls "false teachers". They are engaged in religion, and teach it. They would establish a precedent of plundering the flock, and introduce destructive heresies (lies) with cunning seduction. "Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the Way of Truth (Torah) into disrepute. In their greed, these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up." You must read the whole context. He even goes on to say "It would have been better for them not to have known the Way of Righteousness (Torah) than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them. Of them the proverbs are true: A dog returns to its vomit', and A pig that is washed goes back to her wallowing in the mud'."One of the "stories they have made up" is that we must "tithe" to spread the "Gospel", and to provide a comfortable setting (a building) in which to study and help others worship and come to salvation. This is programming. "Tithe" is mentioned at Lev. 27:30, Num. 18:26, Deut. 12:17, & 14:22. HEY~ isn't that "OLD Testament"? You bet, but you should read it. Altogether, tithing is referred to 16 times in Scripture, and is the "ma'aser", or a 10th of the increase used for 3 purposes. It consists of food only, as you will quickly discover. Clearly, Malachi 1:7 and 3:10 show this. Preachers will select their own "parts" of the texts in order to make the listener believe that money is to be collected and "put at the apostles' feet" to support them in their GOD's work. HYhy's message is repent, not pay. The tithe supported (fed) the Lewites, poor, fatherless, foreigners, and widows. Shaul, at 1 Cor. 1-4, & 16:1, is also talking about food, to be taken back to Yerushaliyim to those in need. There was a famine, and gold coins cannot be eaten. If a teacher of Torah is travelling and one of us has him stay at our home for a time, he is able to eat from your table. "You must not muzzle the ox" while it is turning the grindstone, but let it eat the fruits of what it is grinding, for sustenance. The ox doesn't cart off a percentage! The Lewites were not able to own land, but performed the tedious ceremonial law requirements we just discussed. They had to eat, as well as their families. If a preacher tells you he is entitled to 10% of your income, and everyone else's income (numbering 100's or even 1000's of people), remind him that he is not a Lewite. A Lewite had to be a descendant of Lewi, a strict bloodline of priests. Also, the ceremonial law, and the need to support those Lewites who implemented it, is no more. These predators are not the poor, through some physical defect. They are not children without a father to support them. They are not foreigners fleeing a famine or war, or widows in their old age with no husband. They must work! I do, and Shaul did, even though he traveled about. ELDERS MEETING (Acts 20:13-38) Shaul called a meeting of the elders in Ephe-sus (a Pagan town, note the name-ending). He was in a rush to get to Yerushaliyim by the day of Shabuoth (called Pentecost), and knew he would never again see these brothers in his flesh. "Now I know that none of you among whom I have gone about preaching the Kingdom will ever see me again." He passionately pleaded with them, and then mentioned the coming in of savage "wolves" among them:
"Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Ruach ha Qodesh (setapart Spirit) has made you overseers (elders, bishops). Be shepherds of the assembly of AYAy, which He bought with His own blood. I know, that after I leave, SAVAGE WOLVES will come in among you and will not spare the flock. Even from your own number (that group of men) men will arise and distort the Truth in order to draw away disciples after them. So be on your guard! Remember that for 3 years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears. Now, I commit you to hwhy and to the Word of His lovingkindness (Torah), which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are setapart (Qodeshim, saints). I have not coveted anyone's silver or gold or clothing. You yourselves know that these hands of mine have supplied my own needs and the needs of my companions. In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work WE must help the weak, remembering the words the Rabbi OWVhy Himself said, 'IT IS MORE BLESSED TO GIVE THAN TO RECEIVE'.
Who was Shaul talking to? Elders! What did he know some of them would eventually begin
to do? He knew it would turn into a business, and even mentioned the "wolves" I referenced from 2 Pet. 2. There can be no mistake here, because this is a 2nd witness in the Writings to what we see happening around the world today ~ he even quoted OWYht's words about "receiving", and this quote is never taken in context. Instead, it's turned around and used to plunder the flock! The "merchants" are also mentioned in the book called Revelation (Apocalypse, uncovering). These merchants have drunk the maddening wine (teachings) of Babylon, taught heresies like Easter / Ishtar, Sun-day, and other Nimrod nonsense, and grown RICH from having done so. This knowledge, when made known, will rock Babylon to its roots. THIS is the "rebellion" Shaul prophesied to occur at 2 Thess. 2:3! This is the exposing of the Man of Lawlessness. Study this thoroughly, because your eyes are being opened. All that has to happen is for a billion people to stop paying these men, and it all comes down. The message is FREE. Now knowing this, how much money will you have spared yourself, and be enabled to help desperate relatives and friends? I certainly don't want any of your earnings, nor do I need your "last will and testament" to leave money to print these books. They will be supported by those who buy the truth, and sell it not. The printing and mailing costs will be covered by each book. Reading 1 Tim. 5:7-9 shows your first duty is to your own relatives, to lessen the burden on the assembly of supporting widows. At 6:5, men of corrupt minds think that religion is a means to financial gain. (Read the context).
The "merchants" use Acts 4:32-36 to trick the listener into believing that money is to be collected and "put at the apostles' feet" to support THEM in the Creator's work. If you stop right now and read this in its full context, you will see that this "programming" is completely wrong. The support was distributed among the needy among them, and no one was in want. This is just one area where "inoculating" or "vaccinating" the masses of people against the correct behavior is done. It's almost like everyone is under hypnosis. These merchants are businessmen. To steer you away from obeying Commandments, they will say "We now have liberty in Christ", or "We now live in the Age of Grace". But, they sure want a lot of your money! It is interesting that Rabbi OWWhy threw some merchants out of His Father's House ~ He must not like money being involved in spiritual matters. He also once said, "Give to Caesar what is Caesar's, and to Elohim what is Elo-him's". The government wants your money, and hwhy wants your obedience. When the veil in the Temple was torn from top to bottom, it signaled the end of the ceremonial law; but the moral law that defines "sin" is still here. To steal, kill, adulterate, or covet was a sin 10 years before He died for sin; and they were still sinful 10 years afterward as well. We have to have love for our neighbor, so the suffering poor, fatherless children, widows, and foreigners fleeing wars are everyone's concern. Paul (Shaul) wrote that believing Gentiles must support the needy Yahudim: "For if the Gentiles have shared in the Yahudim's spiritual blessings, they owe it to the Yahudim to share with them their material blessings." ~ Rom. 15:27. This is quite a contrast to what Martin Luther wrote three years before he died; "For the glory of GOD and His Church, Jews' synagogues and holy books should be burned and covered over with soil, and Jewish homes should be likewise destroyed". His writings were used by Nazi war criminals in their defense at Nuremberg. Giving to the poor is the highest form of tithing, yet "spreading the Gospel" is never associated with a tithe in the Scriptures ~ it's just programmed into peoples' heads that way. Luther knew that "indulgences" were just a big fund-raiser, and that their spiritual benefits amounted to nothing. When OWWhy told the rich young man to give his wealth to the poor, He clearly didn't want any for Himself, nor did He say to give any to the Lewites. A Gentile convert to Yahu-daism (Acts 10) who feared hwhy and studied Torah at the synagogue is another interesting case. He was Cornelius, a Roman centurion, who sent 3 servants to go find Peter, and the text says he always gave generously to those in need. A messenger (malak, angel) was sent from hwhy and appeared to him saying, "Your prayers and GIFTS TO THE POOR have come up as a memorial offering before Elohim." Acts 10:1-5. This is where the 3 sheets filled with unclean animals appear to our sleepy Peter, to prepare him to go with the 3 Gentile men who were about to appear at his house gate ~ something he would not have done otherwise! The vision of the 3 sheets of unclean animals wasn't about food, but about Gentiles. One use of the tithe is commanded to be for YOU to bring to the place He has established His Name (Yerushaliyim) and EAT IT before Him. If it is too far and or too much to travel with, He says to sell the food or animals, and put the money in your hand ~ and then come and buy food, strong drink, or whatever warms your heart, and eat it rejoicingly before Him, sharing what you have with those who have little. The "merchants" must be thrown out of the Temple again; and WE are that Temple. The time has come now that true worshippers in the Truth worship from where they are, not in Yerushaliyim, as OW why explained to the woman at the well. But, we will see the New Yerushaliyim when He returns, and be with Him! Now for the MAN OF LAWLESSNESS: "For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed (uncovered), whom Rabbi OWwhy will overthrow with the breath of His mouth and destroy by the splendor of His coming. The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Shatan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the Truth and so be saved. For this reason hwhy sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the Truth but have delighted in lawlessness." 2Th. 2:7-12. Who are these people who would "delight" in lawlessness, and refuse the Truth? Well, the Truth is Torah, what they call the Law, and they teach that it has been "done away", nailed to the crux. Then, by their definition, there is no criteria to define what a "sin" is, because if there is no law, then there is no way to sin against it (Romans 4:15). Yet, it says at 1 Yn. 3:4: " Everyone who sins breaks the Torah; in fact, sin is Torahlessness". By stealth, the "seed" (the Word of hwhy) was stolen away by the "birds", or trampled under the feet of men, as the parable says (Luke 8:5-15). You see, the words in the Writings we read as Light, Truth, Word, Voice, Wisdom, Living Water, Commands, the Way, Seed, Life, etc., are all metaphors for the TORAH, or teachings of HWHY. "'These people honor Me with their lips, but their hearts are far from Me. They worship Me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men'. You have let go of the commands of hWhy and are holding on to the traditions of men. You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of hVhy in order to observe your own traditions! Mark 7:6-9, Yesha Yahu 29:13. Do traditions we see in the practices of religion have any basis in the Writings? Can you find "Sun-day" or a worship service on Sun-day in the Writings? Is there any mention that the Shabbat was changed to the first day of the week? Tithing is certainly the work of the predators; and the poor, fatherless, and widows are just overlooked. Legalism is some sort of heresy in the minds and words of most, yet OW why said: "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law (Torah) or the Prophets (Nebi'im); I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill (fill-full) them. I tell you the truth, until heaven (skies) and Earth disappear, not the smallest letter (yod), not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Torah until everything is accomplished. Anyone who breaks one of the least of these Commandments, and teaches others to do the same, will be called least in the kingdom of hYhy, but whoever practices and teaches these Commandments will be called great in the kingdom of hYhy. For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the Torah, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of hYhy. "Mt. 5:17-20. These words sound very much like we should be knowing and acting on the 10 Commandments, as well as all the Moral teachings that the Torah has, which builds us up and protects us. A rich young man, (possibly Mark himself), asked Rabbi OWYhy: "'Tob Rab (Good Teacher), what must I do to inherit eternal life?'" (Mark 10:17-27) Rabbi replied, "You know the Commandments: 'You do not murder, you do not commit adultery, you do not steal, you do not give false testimony, do not defraud, honor your father and mother...'"
As I mentioned, without the Torah to live by, AND the gift of receiving a LOVE for them, you are not under the "New Covenant", and have not received the Spirit of OWYhy; so the wrath of hYhy abides on your head. Acts 5:32 says, "We are witnesses to these things, and so is the Ruach ha Qodesh (setapart Spirit, Yahushua), whom hYhy has given to those WHO OBEY HIM." The "man of lawlessness" should be easy for you to identify. His office is the "Vicar" (substitute), also known as "Holy Father". His powers extend to any human being who is deceived, and seeks to deceive others, with the heresy that the Torah is no longer in force. Moral law has been changed in their thinking. This beast also has a "mark" (Sunday), which you will find fulfills Dan. 7:25, the "change" of the Torah. The "Covenant Sign" of the 7th-day Shabbat, and the annual appointments, were annulled by this beast. Yet, Mashiach clearly warned us not to think that He had come to abolish or alter the slightest stroke of a pen, until the skies and Earth disappear. That's my whole world, because if I look up, there's the sky; if I look down, there's the Earth. Two witnesses again. He called them as witnesses to the presence of the Torah, as He had when He gave the Torah to the children of Yisrael: (see Deut. 30:19, 31:28) "This day,
I call heaven and Earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life, and death; blessings, and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love hYhy your Elohim, listen to His voice, and hold fast to Him." And, these two witnesses are still in existence, so the Torah we live by is still in force. And, it is our life. At Mt. 4, OWYhy uses "the sword" or Word (Torah) to resist Shatan: "It is written, 'Man does not live on bread only, but on every word that comes from the mouth of hYhy'". The "Bread of Life", is what OWYhy is, the Living Word made flesh; the Torah became a living, breathing Person ~ the image of the invisible Elohim, hYhy. The Father is in Him, and spoke to us. His body is a new creation now, never to die; and we will have such a body. Our new body will be our "house" or "tent" that will clothe our spirit, leaving behind the clay vessel we now inhabit that must die. It is appointed for man ONCE to die, and after this, the judgment; He will say "Well DONE, good and faithful servant", not "well believed". What will He say to the people who have never responded to His call, or were deceived by the Babylonian Mother of Harlots (and her daughters)? At Mt. 7:15-23, after explaining that false teachers would be inwardly ferocious wolves, Rabbi tells us we can tell a good tree from a bad tree by their fruit. Then He says, "Not everyone who says to me 'Adonai, Adonai', will enter the Kingdom of hYhy, but only he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven. Many will say to Me on that day, 'Adonai, Adonai, did we not prophesy in your Name, and in your Name drive out demons and perform many miracles (great works) ?' Then I will tell them plainly, '/ never knew you. Away from me, you who practice lawlessness'".
You can also look at what He is NOT saying. He never suggests that those who do their very best to obey Torah are to face a charge of "legalism". Shatan's messengers steer you away from Torah, but appear as messengers of righteousness. These also are the ones who look oddly at you when you bring up the real Name of the Creator. Let's face it; the translators carried over the name for the Yerushaliyim garbage pit (gehenna) very accurately, but couldn't do the same for the Name above every name. There is much to learn from footnotes, but you will notice they steer you away from believing you should obey the "laws" that please our Father. Without Torah, the whole world is filled with violence, as in the days of Noach. ROSARIES
The prayer beads which monks and nuns wear, and are sold to the "laity" in Catholicism, came into

their system around CE 1090, about the same time "indulgences" and celibacy were embraced. Prayer beads originated with Pagans, and are very common among Buddhists and Muslims. The Rudraksha beads of the Buddhists have 108 beads, and are sometimes "seeds". The Muslims use 99 sacred stones on their rosaries, and Catholics have 59.
During the time that Spain was controlled by the Islamic "Moors", a city was established called "Fatima", named after one of Muhammad's daughters. The story is that three little Catholic girls met an apparition of "Mary" in Fatima, and this "Mary" gave one of them the prayer beads, to pray to her with. Mary worship had started in CE 431, and kept growing more and more over the centuries. "Mary" is in the news quite often still, popping up in people's houses, or in the clouds. Catholics rally to see her. It is an odd thing, but Muslims also pray to "Mary", because Muhammad married a Roman Catholic nun named Kadjah, and learned to venerate Mary from her. They only pray to "Allah" and "Mary", yet they don't pray to Muhammad. Both Muhammad and Mary are dead and rotting in the ground.
Pagans' "repetitive" prayers are condemned by Rabbi OWYhy, since He said at Mt. 6:7: "And when you pray, do not keep on bab-

bling like Pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him." Also, Dt. 18 and
Yesha Yahu (Is.) 8 forbid prayer to any entity other than hYhy. Contacting the dead is absolutely forbidden. Intercessory prayer may be done by living saints for other saints, but prayers TO the dead are an abomination. Any contact with "spirits" is a grievous transgression, and is demonic.
