Where are the True

Congregations
of
YHVH?

Have you ever pondered this age old question? I know I have, and when I
was a young man I didn't have very many clues. But the few clues that I did
have were enough to let me know that it could not possibly be any of the
large religious organizations around the world; I based this conclusion on
several verses of scripture that I knew.

Matthew 22:11-14
11 But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man
who didn't have on wedding-clothing,
12 and he said to him, 'Friend, how did you come in here not having
wedding-clothing?' He was speechless.
13 Then the king (YHVH) said to the servants, 'Bind him hand and
foot, take him away, and throw him into the outer darkness; there is
where the weeping and grinding of teeth will be.'
14 For many are called, but few chosen."

From this parable I was able to discern that most of the people in the world
that have ever been born OR ever will be born, regardless of religious
affiliation, will not be chosen by YHVH. Even the man, who thought he
had salvation, was left speechless at his rejection by YHVH. Now this is
not a trivial statement, because this was not a man that was of a religion that
was outside of the realm of Christianity and Judaism. How do I know this?
This statement was written by the Apostle Matthew (not Mohammed, etc...)
in a letter (Epistle) that was written, as instructions, to True Believers.

Only those that either are True Believers OR think they are True
Believers (according to a Hebrew based faith) would have been at the
wedding ceremony without wedding clothes. One of the major focuses
of all of the Apostolic writings was to teach the separation of The
Tares from The Wheat. Only Tares have the appearance of Wheat,
and NOT other bizarre religions. Therefore, only a Tare would have
been at the wedding supper (ceremony) in this parable.

It would have served no purpose to be discussing strange off the wall


religions here; not even as an informational "FYI".

Therefore, ALL "Outside the Realm" religions PLUS "The Copy Cat" Tares
are included in this non-trivial statement, AND in the following verses,
which are also from Matthew.

Matthew 7:7, 13-14


7 "Ask (YHVH), and it will be given you. Seek (YHVH), and you will
find. Knock (YHVH's door is The Messiah), and it will be opened to you.

13 Enter in by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate, and


broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and many are
those who enter in by it.

14 How narrow is the gate, and restricted is the way that leads to
life! Few are those who find it.

From these verses I was able to conclude that those few who were
chosen must have been able to find the true path that leads to eternal life
by seeking the truth with a selfless and open minded attitude. However,
never take anyone's word as truth, and prove all things as to whether they
are from YHVH or man.
Romans 12:2
2 Don't be fashioned according to this world, but be transformed by
the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what is the good
and acceptable and the perfect will of YHVH.

So with these verses firmly embedded in my brain, I struck out on a journey


that would take the better part of my physical life. I was very naive in the
beginning, and made many mistakes. Some of these mistakes nearly cost me
my life, but as long as my heart was seeking YHVH, I was protected from
death, but not from the consequences. However, these consequences in my
life became tribulations of knowledge and blessings.

Romans 8:28
28 We know that all things work together for the good of those who
love YHVH, to those who are called according to His purpose.

I came to understand in a very personal way that tribulations, when mixed


with true faith and love for The Creator, is not only YHVH's method of
testing our faith, but his way of strengthening it as well. Although, at the
time, most of it was pretty difficult to endure. Even so, I was assured by
YHVH that He would not test anyone beyond their limits. Notice that this
benefit is for the called out ones among mankind, because no one is
positively chosen until they actually receive the Holy Spirit or Mentality
of YHVH, AND no one is absolutely begotten until they are resurrected to
eternal life at the "First Resurrection of The Dead in Messiah".

1 Corinthians 10:13
13 No temptation has taken you but such as man can bear. YHVH is
faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted above what you are
able, but will with the temptation make, also, the way of escape, that
you may be able to endure it.
Where the True Congregations are Not...

During my Spiritual journeys I attended Presbyterian, Methodist, Holiness,


Church of Christ, Seventh Day Adventist, Catholic, Lutheran, Episcopalian,
Pentecostal, various Churches of God (including Seventh Day), The
Worldwide Church of God (The Old and The New), Assembly of God,
United Christian Churches, and a dozen different Baptist Churches. I taught
Sunday School, and Sabbath School; and other than a few rituals, and some
methodologies, they were (are) basically all the same with few exceptions
(see note below). Most adhere to the Universal Greco-Roman "Nicene
Creed". In YHVH's eyes this makes them all Roman Christopagans.
Additionally, I grew up with a Jewish family, who had two sons that were in
my age group; and so I did not miss out on Judaism either.

So how could all of these churches be the "True Body" or how could any
one of these churches be the "True Body of Believers", as they all claim?
They couldn't ALL be the "True Body of Believers", because Scripture
clearly indicates that only a very low number (a few) of The Called Out Ones
will be Chosen. Additionally, because experience taught me that they were
consistently the same in their basic doctrines concerning salvation through
Jesus Christ and water baptism, I knew that none of them could be the "True
Body of Believers," because this would make them all divisions or members
of the same false "Body" (only much larger now) with different names,
leaders, and rituals. Obviously, Church Names, Church Leaders (human),
Church Rituals, and Church Doctrine or Creed cannot bring about
salvation.

Note: Not all churches are created equal, and the above
statements may not apply to all churches on an individual
church basis or according to Official Church Doctrine; BUT be
advised YHVH does not "Judge" people according to Official
Church Doctrine; AND Official Church Doctrine is nothing
more than a lie when "Official Church Members" do not
observe "Official Church Doctrine." Now one must ask oneself,
"Is Jesus really God" or a god? Of all the large church
organizations that I attended, however, The Churches of God
Seventh Day was the closest Protestant Group (that I attended)
to The Spirit and The Truth of YHVH, even so they still follow
an anti-messiah teaching on the pre-existence of IHS (Iseous or
Jesus) as a deity who existed as a "Son of YHVH" prior to his
physical birth and death on Earth. Only YHVH (YHWH) is self-
existent.

Just for the record, Messiah Y'shúa was not the First Born Son
of YHWH from heaven; He was the First to be Spiritually
Born into the Coming Kingdom of Yah!

This caused me to rethink all of the Catholic, Protestant, and


Nondenominational Church lessons that I had learned and taught; and I
found that all of these churches had many common rituals that were
obviously not Scriptural. For a start they all observe(d) Xmas, and Easter,
and many of them even allow(ed) Halloween parties inside their church.
Most taught that their church had the authority to change at least one of the
Commandments of YHVH; the most prevalent being the Sabbath Day, and
the "Thou Shalt Not Murder" Commandments (as in protestant & catholic
wars, The Crusades, The Catholic Inquisition, and The catholic church's
support of Hitler during WWII ). However, the greatest lesson I learned
was that they were all legalistic and not Spiritual in the sense that they had
taken Scripture and turned various verses into a manmade or church made
"Set of Rules" to be followed "To The Letter" in order to achieve
salvation. Oh, how often I have heard the "Once Saved, Always Saved"
theme, and the ignorant interpretation of what it means to "Believe" from
John 3:16. I sat through years of how important water baptism was (and its'
methodology) as a requirement for salvation, and that YHVH handed out
Grace as if it grew on trees. I walked "The Roman Road To Salvation"
(Christian Legalism) until it became a rut, and that is when I got really serious
about seeking YHVH's Truth. Don't get me wrong, YHVH's Grace is truly
amazing, but YHVH's Grace is based on Returned Love. Please try to
understand, First and foremost, we must exhibit our Love Towards YHVH
through the example set by Messiah Y'Shua, then He Returns that Love
in the form of Grace. Why Grace? Because having Grace means that we
have found Favor (through following Messiah's example) in YHVH's Eyes.
However, we can either grow in Grace (Favor) OR fall from Grace (Favor);
....... So that pretty much trashes the "Once Saved, Always Saved" theme,
especially if you think you achieved that salvation by following a set of
rules.

Note: Love between mankind and YHVH, The Creator, is not


a "one way" street. We Love YHVH because He first loved us,
and when we love Him back by following Messiah's selfless
example, then He returns that love. Therefore, love begets love,
and becomes a positive upward spiral.

Romans 11:21-22
21 for if YHVH didn't spare the natural branches (Hebrew), neither
will he spare you.
22 Understand the goodness and severity of YHVH. Toward those
who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in
his goodness; otherwise you also will be cut off (Fall from
Grace).

To seriously seek out YHVH's Truth, one must first seek out and find the
inconsistencies in their own beliefs and those of the various churches. The
only way to do this is by actually opening the Bible and reading it (all of it).
Now if you find any inconsistencies in the Scripture, it can only come from
two possible sources. First, your own understanding is flawed and / or the
Scripture was tampered with by scribes. It is impossible for YHVH to be
inconsistent, because YHVH is always the same (perfect and orderly), and
YHVH neither makes mistakes nor does He change His mind concerning
those things that are Good or Evil or Pre-planned by Him. On the other
hand, Satan (source of HumanNature) is the Father of lies, deception, and
chaos. AND Speaking of lies, deception, and chaos, that is exactly what I
found in all of those other churches. Could it be that all Traditional Christian
professing churches were actually deceptions of Satan?. . . I had to find out !
And so my quest began in earnest with the only resource I had . . . The Holy
Scriptures (Tanakh or First Testament) and the Epistles of the Apostles (Last
Testament). A really good 'Concordance' didn't hurt either.
Where the True Congregations Are...

Sometimes a verse or two of Scripture will literally jump off the pages of
YHVH's word; the following Scripture is a perfect example.

Matthew 18:19-20
19 Again, assuredly I tell you, that if two of you will agree on Earth
concerning anything that they will ask, it will be done for them by
my Father who is in heaven.
20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there I
am in the midst of them."

Now this is a very power filled Scripture with awesome implications. Think
about it! As little as two people can constitute a true body of believers. This
could simply be a husband and his wife or a small family of three. Just
because YHVH allows larger groups, does not mean that He requires them,
and this Scripture confirms it. It, also, goes "Hand in Hand" with the fact
that few will be chosen. Could it be that our Creator is trying to tell us
something? Could it be that our Creator really doesn't expect His
Congregations to have a position of power (by worldly standards) and an
overwhelming presence in this world at this time? Could it be that YHVH
has hidden His "True Body of Believers" in a secret place where no man
can find it unless he has been made Spiritually aware of its' presence? The
answer to all of these questions is, "Yes!"
Psalm 107:1-7
O give thanks unto YHVH, for He is good: for His mercy endureth for
ever.
2 Let the redeemed of YHVH say so, whom He hath redeemed from
the hand of the enemy;
3 And gathered them out of the lands, from the east , and from the
west, from the north , and from the south .
4 They wandered in the wilderness in a SOLITARY WAY; they
found no city to dwell in .
5 (Spiritually) Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.
6 Then they cried unto YHVH in their trouble, and He delivered them
out of their distresses.
7 And He led them forth by the right way (Righteousness Seeking), that
they might go to a city of habitation (The Coming Kingdom's New
Jerusalem).

Awesome! YHVH is telling us through King David that His Chosen Few are
a remnant that is scattered throughout the whole world (North, South, East,
and West).

Let us examine some more awesome Scripture.

Matthew 27:50-51
50 Y'Shua cried again with a loud voice, and yielded up his spirit
(mental awareness).
51 Behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from the top to the
bottom.

Why was the veil of the temple torn or split into two pieces? Prior to
Messiah Y'Shua's selfless sacrifice no one could personally approach "The
Mercy Seat" in the "Holy of Holies" area behind the veil except the High
priest, and even he was only allowed to do so once a year. Symbolically the
veil separated mankind from YHVH until it was torn in two. Now with the
perfect Sacrifice of Y'Shua as our "Self-Sacrificed" Passover Lamb, any
True Worshipper can approach YHVH in prayer because of the Sacrifice of
Messiah, our new High Priest and intercessor. In other words, Y'Shua is the
only Priest and example of selfless sacrifice that we need in order to have
our prayers heard. So where is the need for a large church on every street
corner? ... There is None! So how will the message of the "Coming
Kingdom on Earth", and the "Message of Salvation" be preached for all the
world to hear? .... By individuals, families, friends, acquaintances, and
strangers.. Just like you and me. .. Don't you see? YHVH's True
Congregation or "Body" lives inside each of His True
Believers (Scattered throughout the whole world).

John 2:19-21
19 Messiah Y'Shua answered them, "Destroy this temple, and in three
days I will raise it up."
20 The Jews therefore said, "Forty-six years was this temple in
building, and will you raise it up in three days?"
21 But he spoke of the temple of his body.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20
19 Or don't you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit
which is in you, which you have from YHVH? You are not your own,
20 for you were bought with a price. Therefore glorify YHVH in your
body and from your Spirit (heart or mind), which are YHVH's.

1 Corinthians 4:10-16
10 We are fools for Y'Shua's sake, but you are wise in Y'Shua. We are
weak, but you are strong. You have honor, but we have dishonor.
11 Even to this present hour we hunger, thirst, are naked, are beaten,
and have no certain dwelling place.
12 We toil, working with our own hands. Being reviled, we bless.
Being persecuted, we endure.
13 Being defamed, we entreat. We are made as the filth of the world,
the dirt wiped off by all, even until now.
14 I don't write these things to shame you, but to admonish you as my
beloved children.
15 For though you have ten thousand tutors in Y'Shua, yet not many
fathers. For in Y'Shua, I became your father through the gospel.
16 I beg you therefore, be imitators of me (mirror the "Image of
YHVH" in your life and not the "Image of Satan").

It is the reasonable service of each and every one of us to become lights


unto the world and to spread the Gospel of YHVH and His first born son,
Y'Shua. It is not our reasonable service to sit in an assembly all of our lives
and only be receivers of the Gospel.

James 1:21-24
21 Therefore, putting away all filthiness and overflowing of
wickedness, receive with humility the implanted word, which is able
to save your souls.
22 But be doers of the word, and not only hearers,
deluding your own selves.
23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a
man beholding his natural face in a mirror;
24 for he sees himself, and goes away, and immediately forgets what
kind of man he was.

As you can plainly see, we are expected to become doers of the word. As
doers of the word we automatically become teachers, ministers, and
evangelists. There is no need to attend one of Satan's (mankind's) seminaries,
so that we may become proficient in the art of deception. YHVH assures us
through His Word that His Sheep know His voice, and that His Holy Spirit
of Love will open our eyes and minds to the truth.

Isaiah 1:17-20
17 Learn to do well. Seek justice, Relieve the oppressed, Judge the
fatherless, Plead for the widow."
18 "Come now, and let us reason together," says YHVH: "Though
your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow. Though they be
red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
19 If you are willing and obedient, You shall eat the good of
the land;
20 But if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured with the sword;
For the mouth of YHVH (Isaiah) has spoken it."
