prominently in "those who obey Eiohim's Commandments, and hold to the Testimony of OWYhy". ~ Rev. 12:17. No lie is found in the mouths of His redeemed, those who have been sealed with the Father's Name. (Read all of Rev. 14).
MITRE This is a Pagan religious hat, originating in the worship of Dagon, the chief deity of the Philistines, a sea people. Its name, mitre, comes from the name Mithras. Popes, bishops, and cardinals wear them in the Church of Rome, and the Anglican Church uses them also. MOABITE STONE This large stone over 3 feet high was discovered in 1868 CE, and was broken by Arabs in order to fetch more money for each piece. It contains the palaeo-Hebrew script, and the Name of hwhy is written on it. MOSHEH This is the name distorted to "Moses", and it means draw-out. He was born during a time when all male children of Yisrael were to be destroyed at birth in Egypt / Mits-raim. Pharaoh's daughter named him this Hebrew name because she drew him out of the water. He drew out the children of Yisrael from Egypt. (Hold it—is that a Christmas tree at left?) RABBI Hebrew for my teacher. OWWhy was called Rabbi by His pupils and others at Mt. 26:25, 26:49, Mk. 9:5, 10:51, 11:21, 14:45, Yn. 1:38, 3:2, 3:26, 4:31, 6:25, 9:2, 11:8, 20:16, and many other places where the word "teacher" or "master" were translated. He's the ONLY one we call "rabbi", as He directed us at Mt. 23:8. ROME The language of the Romans was called Roma. The Empire was called by the capital (head) of it, after an Etruscan myth of two orphaned boys name Romulus and Remus. This city is located in what is called Italy, where the pre-Roman civilazation of Etruria used to be (5th century BCE).
TZITZIT Hebrew for tassels. At Num. 15:38, 39 and Deut. 22:12, we are commanded to wear tassels at the 4 corners of our garments, attached with a blue cord. The Throne of hwhy is on a sea of blue sapphire, and the color blue is to remind us of the Torah each time we see our tassels. OWWhy wore them, and continues to; at Mt. 9:20 and 14:36, the text states that His tassels were touched by many people, and they were healed by doing so. He criticized the Pharisees for lengthening their tassels to make a show of outward righteousness. This is not a "talisman" like a Pagan would use. Pagans relied on objects to confer protection or powers over evil with runes, amulets, stones, tags, scapulas, necklaces, rings, and wands. This is idolatry. Wearing cruxes, medals, making magic signs, waving in the air, splashing water, or counting on a "rosary" is no different from VOODOO. They may as well twirl a chicken over their heads. Tzitzit are to remind us to obey the Torah always. YARMULKE This is a Yiddish word for the kipa, or skullcap seen worn by the pope, and most orthodox Yahudim on the street, in the classroom, and in the synagogues. Mosheh would not know what it is. Alfred J. Kolatch, an orthodox author and "Rabbi", states: The skullcap has no religious significance in Jewish law." He goes on to say that it has no basis in Scriptural or Rabbinical law. To trace the use of the cap to its source, we find that it came into wider use only in the 17th century, where before that only a very few Yahudim used it. Did Rabbi OWWhy wear a kipa? All researchers and historians say NO, and there is no evidence of its use in any data or archaeological finds at all. The pope of Rome and his cardinals wear them, but that is because it was originally a Greek hat of a scholar, called the "hat of Hermes" (Hermes is a Pagan idol, of course). You will recall the "cap and gown" of graduates from schools and universities employs this "hat of Hermes", topped with a square mason's board. A mason is a layer of bricks, and the mason's board holds the cement mix. These were scholars who graduated to different levels in their guilds; from apprentice to journeyman, then journeyman to master.
In ancient times, just prior to 186 BCE, the land of Yisrael was ruled by a Greek Seleucid, Antiochus Epiphanes IV. He was extremely cruel, and outlawed the Hebrew religion, forcing his Greek customs on them. In the record of 2 Maccabees, an apostate high priest (named "Jason" in translation, but really named Yeshua) helped this Greek ruler impose the Greek ways of living:
"And abrogating the lawful way of living, he introduced new customs contrary to the Torah; for he willingly established a gymnasium right under the citadel (the Temple), and he made the finest of the young men wear the Greek hat"
Paul writes at 1Cor. 11:7 that a man is not to have his head covered in the assembly, but a woman is required to, to keep from dishonoring one another's headship. OWYhy is the man's 'head', while a woman's 'head' is her husband. We are to follow the Torah, and not add to it in any way: "Do not add to nor take away from it". Dt. 12:32.
Man-made customs, including all the camouflaged Paganism found in Christendom, are tradi-
tions that are forbidden in the worship of hYhy. They represent more than a "strange fire", but are like the golden calf. It is forbidden to worship Him after the customs of the Pagans. "The one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked." ~ 1 Yoch. 2:6. Walk in Light ~ the Torah.
Human traditions run unchecked from generation to generation. The word "Bible" is not found anywhere in the text of the Writings, but they are called by this name of a Pagan deity, Biblia. They will tell you it's a "translation" from the Greek word for "books", but stop there. It's been traced further back than the Greek.
