Looking for the 7,000


By your servant, Dan Baxley


The Seven Thousand

(I Kings 19:18) Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which have not kissed him.


It is interesting to note that a statue purported to be of the Apostle Peter, in a sitting position, is kissed as an act of worship -- and kissing the Pope's ring (1 King 19:18 - Hos 13:2).




Kissing the Ring of Baal & worshiping at the foot of Jupiter

Looking for the Seven Thousand


Paul reports the very thing that reveals a "remnant" set aside, a very few who have not been made blind by the supreme deception, a delusion, if you please that directs everyone who would seek our Creator God, away from Him, toward ANOTHER. Paul quotes from the Book of Kings, repeating what was told to EliYaH, what was revealed to EliYaH, and the Apostle Paul, using this quote, to point out something that is a truth -- there has always been a certain remnant, unseen, unrecognized by the world, even by other believers. This remnant could quite possibly be the 144,000 mentioned in Rev 7 and 14. Yes, the Apostle Paul recognized a few, in his day, that, by their lives fulfill this very same responsibility of the 7,000 in Elijah's day. If then in Paul's day, then our time, our days too -- there is a "remnant" among those claiming the God of the Holy Bible is their God, that have not bowed to the "Lord (Baal) worship" of today -- a remnant from generation to generation.


(Rom 11:4-5)."...I have reserved to Myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to Baal (the Lord). Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace". KJV


(1Ki 19:18) Yet I reserve seven thousand in Israel--all whose knees have not bowed down to Baal and all whose mouths have not kissed him." NIV (Baal was the Babylonian version of the Greek Zeus along with Jupiter, the Dionisus of Roman Temples the modern Jesus)


Are you the square peg trying to fit into the round hole (1 Peter 2:9; 1 Cor 3:16)? Then you may be one of these few reserved by our Creator Himself, you may be one of the few called, seeing this revealed truth and realizing you mission, you purpose for being set aside is to be one, not unlike EliYaH, declaring YaH YaHshua as your God and Savior, and you call on, pray to only Him. You, like EliYaH, refuse to bow to or to call on the Zeus. For the Greeks and the Romans it was Zeus, for the Babylonians during the time of Israelis trials and division it was Baal worship and for some, Baal is translated as LORD. Is it just a coincidence that our Creator’s Holy Name is replaced with the word LORD, the very meaning to the word BAAL, both become more than just “words” if the use insists on these words or others words are NAMES. As Names they take on a whole different honor, above other words and are used to identify, or make known certain personalities or, even, gods. From the Greeks and Romans we have their pagan savior and healer god, Zeus and the largest professing Christian organizations today, and the smaller daughters of today call on JESUS, a word that is pronounced as HeyZeus, that is, The Zeus. It is only the English speaking people that say, GeeZUS, a word that comes down from changes in the language from the time in the 17th century, when early on this delusion began with IESVS, a Latin (Roman) derivative of the Greek Inoous.


THAYER Greek Word Definition:

- Original: Ἰησοῦς --

-Transliteration: T Iesous

- Phonetic: ee-ay-sooce'

- Definition: Jesus = Jehovah is salvation


You can see that there is all kinds of things wrong with this definition, well, not the definition itself, because, sometimes, a definition can be whatever you say it is and whatever the public and other scholars in the field will accept. So, while this short definition us universally accepted it is improper application from the Hebrew or Aramaic to the later Greek. Let’s take a quick look: First, a transliteration is different from a translation. A transliteration, just in case you do not know, is the reproduction of a term, word, or names, from one language to another in an effort to create the same sound. In other words, a reproduction of the same sound as the original language, and from this letters of the foreign are used to reproduce the same sounding out as the original language. In this case the Transliteration has gone terribly wrong. This Transliteration is nowhere close to the Original Name give to our Lord. This is akin to changing you name to a completely different name, like a person named Joe is suddenly called Dan or worse, seeing as this is a very poor handling or our Lord’s Birth Name, the Name we are told we must all, eventually, call on. Salvation is connected with His Birth Name -- Acts 4:12, John

  Second, the phonetic is how you are to say the word or name, you repeat the letters creating a sound, from you own languages letters, that come out sounding like the original sound from the original language. In this case the phonetic value from the original languages is ignor and something totally different is created, and this is true in almost every Greek and English dictionary. This demonstrates just how through and deep this deception has been accepted. Even the transliteration from the terrible Greek to the English is different, changing even the Greek sounding out to HeyZeus or Geezus, seen as Jesus.


  Third, is the Definition, where a totally made up name, nothing close to the Name our Lord was named at birth. Yet, in this definition, we are told that this bogus, made up name means JEHOVAH is Salvation. Wow, talk about a witness against the authority of the Dictionary. The Letter J would be better pronounced by the letter Y, as we understand it. In the middle centuries the Letter J was a phonetic sound for the Y, this would transform JEHOVAH into,m YEHOVAH. Understand, next,m that the E and the A are actually vowel letters supplied by the translators. Eliminate the Vowel and you have the four letter Name of the God of all Creation, a name nearly all translations, in their Preface, call the Tetragrammaton -- YHVH -- or -- YHWH. We could argue over the V or the W all day long but be aware, both applications are far more accurate than what is accepted today.


Back to the 7,000 -- And If you see this truth:


If it is evident to you that the "Jesus", professed by the Christians today, is not the Messiah of the Scripture and Not the Messiah of 30 AD? (1 John 4:2-4; 1 John 2:22 -- seeing in your own Bible the deception in the teaching of "another" savior, calling on a different name than that of our True Savior YaHshua, then you may very well be one of the 7,000. Am I one of the 7,000? I have not idea. I would like to be, and hope to be, but that is not for me or anyone other than our Father in Heaven to say. I am in no way perfect and a poor choice, in my own eyes, but this is not determined by how we see things for our ways are not His ways, our thoughts are not His thought. We cannot and never will be able to second guess our Father in Heaven.


(Isa 55:6-9)  Seek you YaHWeH while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return to YaHWeH, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says YaHWeH. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts. (KJV His Name Restored)


YaHshua is His Name, a Name found among men by which we must be saved (Acts 4:12) and the name Geezus is nowhere close to the Name given to our Lord at Birth. If you can see this truth, if you can see how the translators have stumbled over the true stone -- then you may very well be one of the 7,000. (His birth Name is not Jesus).


The Name our Lord was Named has been with us from the beginning, it has never been lost, but in this time of delusion (2 Thes 2:11) only those willing to hear this will hear it. Consider this; the name JOSHUA is found in the Old Testament, in fact a whole Book goes by that title. This is the name of a major leader of the people of Israel. It is this JOSHUA, whose name is correctly pronounced as YaHshua, that led the chosen people into the promised land, into what was to be the Kingdom of YaHWeH. The Name JOSHUA is the Old English transliteration of our Lord’s Birth Name. This Name was available and ready to be used when the Scholars printed and published the New Covenant writings, so why did they chose to use a different name? Why did they completely replace His Birth Name, a Name they correctly transliterated in the Old Covenant but were for some reason unable to transliterate this name into the New Covenant? If you can believe in demons and devils they you have your answer.


A round peg can fit into a square hole, if it is sized right, but the fit is not very snug. We are like those round pegs in a square world. Strangers in a sea of humanity, waiting for our true citizenship to be delivered from Heaven by the Return of our Lord YaHshua. In my journey, a very few others, just not fitting in. If you present this revealed knowledge to others they will either ignore you or tell you it does not matter, it is what is in your heart that counts. If that is the measure then we are all lost, for the heart of man is evil (Gen 6:5, Pro 18:12; 27:19; 28:14, Eccl 9:3). This is a flaw within mankind from the beginning. The Heart of man has the capacity to do what is right but just as much to do what is evil. To say it is what is in you Heart, meaning almost every time to be a defense in self-righteousness. But from the beginning this has been made known by our Creator:


(Gen 8:20) Noah built an altar to YaHWeH, and took of every clean animal, and of every clean bird, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. YaHWeH smelled the pleasant aroma. YaHWeH said in his heart, "I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake, because the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I ever again strike everything living, as I have done. While the earth remains, seed time and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease."


It is at this time our Creator admits His understanding of man in the flesh. What, you thought our Creator knew all of this already? Well, maybe, but why then, in an earlier revelation, does He say He repented of having made man? If He knew for certain that man and woman would defy Him and so soon, and then witnessing mankind as a whole do evil all the time, and if He knew all of this already then why would He say such a thing?


(Gen 6:6) YaHWeH was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him in His Heart.


Hebrew Root Movement -- Opposing Christianity?


What about the Messianic Jews and those of the Hebrew Roots Movements and the Sacred Names Movements? They all have something to say, but even they have their problems. That is not to say they are not sincere, not the people in general, but I would question the leadership. We need to remember that our Lord said that many would come in His Name and deceive many -- Mt 24:4-5. This is not to say that none of the hidden 7,000 will be found among any of these groups, one here, another there. Usually what will happen, however, is the enlightened, that one chosen by our Heavenly Father, will find him or herself in disagreement often with what these groups teach, and most of all they will come to notice how these groups, seeming to oppose Christianity, are attempting to restore the Old Covenant. It is one thing to learn from the Old Covenant and the Writings and the Prophets but to attempt to restore a Covenant that was and has been broken by YaH, Himself, by the sacrificing of His only Begotten Son to save us from the penalty required by the Old Covenant, then who are they to be attempting to restore or build back up that Dead Covenant? You will notice that nearly all of their teachings come out of the Old Covenant writings and they give great authority to the deniers of the Messiah when it comes to conducting their kind of copy of those First called the Children of the Living God. They will be those whom YaHshua reveals in Revelation 3:9 -- those saying they are Jews but are not.


Ask yourself the following questions


1. Are you caught up in a religion that is trying to restore the Old Covenant? Claiming to be something they are not? (Revelation 3:9, from these run, don’t walk)


2. Do you feel you have become entangled with group oppression, all in the name of god? (Ephesians 5:11; 2 John 10-11; 2 Cor 11:13, Yes, Satan has servants whom he inspires -- the coming of the Ultimate Servant of Satan Rev 13:2 ) This is not saying the people or the leader, by whatever name, is not sincere, and even true to themselves but how do they treat others of a different opinion? How are you treated if you dare ask a challenging question of your Pastor, or Elder or Bishop, Priest or Minister? And what about fellow members, searchers of truth themselves, right? How have they changed toward you? There is a crowd mentality that you must be aware of. The main thing, however, is to realize that you may be of a different calling.


Your calling may be to understand something others do not or will not, or even purposely deny. Among those who say they know the Lord and do use and call on His Name cannot be openly accepted into our house because, remember, our Lord Himself said that many would come in HIS NAME and deceive many. Yes, His Name can be and is being used improperly, and what they lack is the Father. Those of the Old Covenant pick and choose but we are told to break even the least is to be guilty of breaking them all. They miss the simplicity in the Doctrine of YaHshua. Life is found in Him, by the Power of the Father, you cannot have the one without the other, but the various Holy Name movements and Back to the Hebrew Roots people know of the Father but do not Know the Father. You cannot have the one without the Father and the Holy Name Groups and Movements continually misidentify the Father. You will not see this unless the Son, YaHshua reveal Him to you. Believe me, the day will come when everyone’s mind will be opened to this truth. Believe me, this is one thing, one real truth that the 7,000 know, because it has been revealed to them. But, again, is this a guarantee that if you understand this revelation that you or I are one of the 7,000? Not sure, and I can only speak for myself. I know that if EliYaH did not know of them in his day then perhaps we do not either, but from a Heavenly view we are seen as a collective, as a group with our Head as YaHshua. The Heavenly View is not the same as the Earthly View.


(Mat 11:27)  All things are delivered unto Me (YaHshua) of my Father: and no man knows the Son, but the Father; neither knows any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal Him (The Father).


3. Do you seem to understand things in the scripture that separate you from others? (2 Cor 11:4-- , again remember, His name is not Jesus, but YaHshua) Let’s read this verse again, together, with His Holy Name restored:


(2Co 11:3)  But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in the Anointed.

(2Co 11:4)  For if he that comes preaches another YaHshua, whom we have not preached, or if you receive another spirit, which you have not received, or another gospel, which you have not accepted, you might well bear with him.


Paul was writing to the First Church, and warning them to be vigilant and not to be led away from the simplicity that is in the Anointed (Messiah) our Savior YaHshua. It is far more simple than most teach. We confess Him and only Him as our Savior, the only begotten of the Father. Paul saw the subtleness of some false teachers and if this was a concern then, how much more now, over 2,000 years later? Then they had no concern for who they should call on, who they should confess, but imagine what Paul may have been saying if another Messiah was being introduced. What would he have said? I suppose he would have said what we just read. Today we see evidence of a subtle change in our Savior’s true Identity and it is up to us to stick with the truth, as it is revealed and this may, just may bring us into being one of the 7,000. Of course that is not according to our will but His, for it is our Heavenly Father that sets aside those for Himself, just as He told EliYaH, and just as Paul reminds us -- Romans 11:45. This knowledge of truth, alone, will cause some to shun you -- Romans 10:13. We have teachers but our Master Teacher is God our Father -- John 6:45; Ephesians 6:12.


3. Do you find yourself biting your tongue when around others for fear of causing division? If so, this may be a good thing, sometimes it is best to be an observer and not a preacher yourself. Opportunity may present itself for you to speak or to share a knowledge given you, either to the group or individuals, but be wise in this or you may find yourself outside sooner rather than later. We never know where our calling will take us but the creating of arguments is not our duty, even though, when you disagree with your Pastor or an Elder they may not like it but we should not turn a disagreement into a fight. If they strongly opposed your presentation or suggestion, then walk away. Sometimes you are privileged to know what others have yet to be told or see, and again, you may be one of the 7,000, in your time, our time, who knows, at any rate we should conduct ourselves as kings in training. Oh, didn’t I mention, we are in training, whether of the 7,000 or not.


(Rev 1:5-6)  And from YaHshua the Anointed, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto Him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in His own blood, And has made us kings and priests unto God and His Father; to Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

(Rev 5:10)  And has made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.


When it is said that He, YaHshua, is the Prince of the Kings of the Earth, this is not talking about the wicked kings that ruling over the people of this earth today. No, this speaks of us, destine to rule with Him as Kings and Priests, and this is His title, King of Kings -- Rev 17:14. 


4. Do your questions to your pastor only cause arguments or belittlement? (2 Peter 2:2-4)


5. Do you feel alone in this world of confused religions and obvious false doctrines? Like, does your Bible, the same one they read, seem to say something different from what the preacher is saying, or what you are seeing?


(2Ti 3:12-14)  You, and all that will live godly in the Anointed YaHshua shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. But continue you in the things which you have learned and have been assured of, knowing of whom you have learned them;


(Luke 21:8)  And He said, Take heed that you be not deceived: for many shall come in My Name, saying, I am the Messiah (the Anointed); and the time draws near: go you not therefore after them.


6. Do you feel that you do not belong? Are you intimidated into silence? Where is our true and final fellowship, with the groups teachings and teachers or with Him and His Word?


(1Jn 1:3-4)  That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son YaHshua the Messiah. And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.


7. Have the leaders of your church set you against your family? Or have they set your family against you? Do they practice authority over all?


(1Co 11:2-3)  Now I praise you, brethren, that you remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances (that is, precepts, even doctrine), as I delivered them to you. But I would have you know, that the head of every man is the Messiah; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Messiah is God (the Father).


 There is a teaching, or precept, Paul is teaching and it is all about Headship, from the Father, to the Son, down to man and his wife. I need to say something about this because it seems to me that many who are attempting to fashion their lives after what they are told God wants, get led down a path that is not truly beneficial to either the man or the woman. On the surface, actually what has been view or taught, is that the man is the absolute power in the relationship between man and woman. Of course too many couples allow those in authority to rule over them both and in some cases the real head of the union becomes the Pastor, or religious leader be whatever name he or they may use. The fact is that in a proper Union, between the Anointed, the man and the woman, a person would be hard pressed to tell which is really in charge. How can this be? For one thing, the Head, YaHshua, has already told us that the Father has always intended the man and woman become as ONE. How can a man rule over his wife, as a master and she the slave if they are to be as one, equal in the relationship? If a decision about a thing cannot be decided between the two then it is the man’s responsibility to make the final decision, right or wrong. In most cases, however, a common and agreeable decision can be determined with the two work together for the good of each other and their family.


 Scripture, our real authority, and tells us that the Father God is over the Christ and the Christ is over the man and man over the woman -- just where does it say the pastor is over the woman, over the children, over you? (Eph 5:22-24) there has been an abundance of misuse in this area, all derived form scriptures addressed to the Apostles and later taken by common men thinking themselves something they are not. The Head of your house is you and you are subject to the Messiah. You, as the man, have a responsibility to be gentle and a servant to the wife -- that's right, a servant. She is not your slave, but because of her weakness (remember it was she that was deceived) you, as the head, are to be tolerant and patient toward her. To lead, you become the servant. Blessed is the man with a God fearing wife that understands this, and is able to see the true strength in her husband, for his mercy toward her is the mercy we find in YaHshua and our Heavenly Father toward us. Amen


8. Do you feel uncomfortable engaging discussions about the creation, about our Creator, being met with stony silence or angry remarks?


THE END .......... No, not quite.


If you answer, "Yes", to any of the questions above perhaps this web site is for you. Perhaps you are – one of the Seven Thousand


EliYaH followed this number one principle, “Let the Father be true and every man a liar” (Romans 3:4). He believed what His God told him. Yes, he had a moment of doubting failure but when he was told that there were 7,000 other, like himself, whom YaHWeH had set aside for Himself, well, that not only cheered EliYaH up but gave him a renewed courage. He only thought he stood alone. We can take a couple of lessons from EliYaH’s experience. First, he thought he was supporting the one true God alone, he was not. His work was visible and at one point, very confrontational. This, of course, got him into a lot of trouble and a reward was posted on his head, actually, literally for his head. Where were the other 7,000 then? They were going about their own business, they were not in the streets, like EliYaH, they were not badgering their neighbors, and it is a pretty good bet that they did not know each other, some may have met, even exchanged addresses, but EliYaH did not know them. We can draw a lot of parallels from EliYaH and the 7,000, as we have already discussed. He lived in a time when all of his fellow citizens were calling on a different god or gods. We have to assume the people may have known about YaHWeH, after all the Jews in Judah were still manning the fires at the original Temple, but somewhere along the line these Israelis took up with other gods as well. Later in the history of Judah, the Southern make up of the Children of Israel, we read in the Book of the Kings how they too had accepted other gods as gods even to the point of setting up pagan images of these false gods in the Temple itself. Read what Manasseh, then King of Judah did.


(2Ki 21:4)  And he built altars in the house of the YaHWeH, of which the YaHWeH said, In Jerusalem will I put My Name.



Who are the Seven Thousand?


That, I believe, would be a certain number of people, called to His Holy Name (remember Eliyah) that have not given themselves to the popular religions of their day. What is the actual number? In EliJah’s time YaHWeH told him it was exactly 7,000, 7,000 others who had not bowed to Baal (LORD) worship. Today? We know for sure that 144,000, exactly 12,000 from each tribe of Israel, are mentions specifically. The Book of Revelation chapters 7 and 14 identifies the number and the nationality making up this number -- all Israelis. How many will also be numbered among the gentile nations or cities? Only our Heavenly Father has that number, but I believe we can safely guess that there are at least 7,000. Biblically speaking, the original 7,000 lived during the days of Elijah (Eli-YaH), hidden, really but there all the same. Elijah, at one point in his ministry, thought he was alone, the only one worshiping the true Creator, the only one calling of His Holy Name, a Name separating his God from all other gods, saviors and messiahs. He, however, was reminded by YHWH, God of back sliding Israel, that he was not alone. There were “seven thousand” that had not bowed to the popular religion of the day and had not kissed (joined hands with this false religion and its priests) Baal. Baal, in the days of Elijah and the Seven Thousand, was the "Lord" worship of that day. Kissing the idol of Baal, a representation of all false Lords, false idols demonstrating an intimate acceptance of this false LORD worship. Kissing objects of stone, wood and even asteroids fallen from the sky, or kissing rings on the hands of mere men, this is the lowest kind of bowing, or veneration of object of man. Kissing, as from cheek to cheek, can be likened to a handshake of greeting or in sealing an agreement. Westerners and Europeans may sign an agreement then shake hands all around sealing the signed agreement. It is not uncommon in this modern era to see religious people kissing their idols, whether they be square prayer boxes, holy stones, holy pictures, holy crosses, holy men, and even stone statues. Not just a Catholic thing either. Those of Islam who pride themselves on their refusal to venerate anything in heaven or on earth oddly venerate the Cube in Mecca. It is considered a Muslim duty to walk around the Kabba at least once in their lives and if possible to kiss the Stone star that is embedded in one corner.



In Rome there is a statue of Peter (see pictures at the beginning of this article), or so they say, and the big toe on this venerated piece of stone - cut into the shape of a man - has virtually been "kissed" off. Once a year the Pope himself places his robe and crown upon this stone idol and bows before it and kisses its foot. The Seven Thousand would not be a party to such things, not in the days of Elijah and not now in these days. Who are the 7,000? It is those that worship the true God in Heaven, in truth and in spirit – and acknowledge Yahshua as Messiah and Savior.





Elijah thought he was alone (I Kings 19:14) but he was not. The mighty YHWH corrected him (I Kings 19:18). The people of YHWH were, in the days of Elijah, concentrated in the land of Israel while today, the people of the Almighty Living God, are like "salt" sprinkled out over the face of the whole earth (Matthew 5:13). We should not forget, our Savior told us in advance that the end days would be as the end days of Noah. Many point to His, our Messiah, saying, "they married and were giving in marriage", as a proof everything was NORMAL, but this is far from the point. How had the days of Noah been? There were around 120 years of people "marrying and giving in marriage", of 'buying and selling" -- 120 years, and how did it end? Only 8 survived the end of days at that time, ONLY 8 people out of millions. Yes, as in the days of Elijah, also, we are looking for a "remnant", that would be a few not a majority.


EliYaH, means, “My God is YaH”. If Elijah did not know about the “seven thousand” souls back then, what about today? As the world is even closer to the coming of our Savior, YaHshua, how many have not bowed to another god? How many today remain true to the worship of the one Savior, the one who came and revealed the Father and have not bowed to any other god or gods? Today there may be many more than a mere seven thousand, then again maybe not (Luke 8:18), but we should realize the people of the Living God are hidden in a much larger area today - all of the earth. Think for a minute – Elijah did not know the 7,000 believers -- he thought He was the only one. YaHWeH reveals to him that there are 7,000 others. Considering the overall population of Israel the number 7,000 may be a much larger number on a per capita basis than we have today.


The emphasis is not on the number or a numbers but that the Creator God has decided that during every age, every generation there will always be those that do not bow to the religions of this world and this is His doing, not mine, not yours, not anyone but Him. Elijah thought he was alone just like many of you may think or feel but you are not. You are there and I am here, that is two, and I know of a couple of others also. Remain where you are, you are there for a reason, if, however, you are being persecuted then flee to another city (Matthew 10:23). When you pray -- you pray for all of us and we for you. The unity in the body of the Messiah is not as the world sees it but as the Spirit sees and knows it.


1 John 2:26 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which you have received of Him abides in you, and you need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teaches you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it has taught you, ye shall abide in Him. KJV


Ephesians 4:15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into Him who is the Head, that is Christ (the anointed). From Him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work NIV


Our part in the Body of the Christ is not with some group of flesh and blood. Our central teacher is our Father in heaven and His Son, Yahshua. They are Spirit, they are Holy and this makes them the Holy Spirit.

It is lost revenues for the fleshly churches to teach this singular truth of individual unity in the living, Spiritual Body, of the Messiah.


(Rom 12:4-7) For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teach, on teaching; KJV (1Cor 10:17; 1Cor 12:12-13; 12:20; Eph 2:13)


(Please read those verses, above, leaving out the “grayed” words, as these words were added by the translators to try and make sense, as they saw it, in their own bias. Read without these words and these verses make even more sense and the truth in them is revealed)


(Eph 2:18) For through Him we both have access by One Spirit unto the Father. 

1 Peter 2:4 As you come to Him, the living Stone – rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to Him – you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Yahshua the Christ.


This house, this spiritual house, is not of any fleshly group, but of those belonging to that spiritual Body of the Messiah -- that body as compared to a building of stones, as our Messiah and Savior is compared to the Corner Stone of a building, this building with a spirit Body visible from Heaven -- He is THE Cornerstone of this Spirit Building.

Certainly it is not wrong to meet with brothers and sisters of like beliefs, but when the burden placed on the individual to comply with a group mentality that is contrary to what you see and understand in the Bible, perhaps it is time for you to examine this group. You should, in the fullness of love, be able to live at peace with all people but there are those that will not let this happen, especially as you, being personally taught by the Father and the Son will fall under suspicious scrutiny by those in authority. It seems that the closer someone actually approaches the truth -- striping away much of the fleshly desire -- the leadership feels more and more threatened. Don’t take this personally if this happens to you, as it is not you they are against, even rejecting, but it is the Christ in you -- not unlike the Messiah Himself when he confronted the religious leaders of His day -- they were afraid of Him and His message -- they could sense they had no power over Him.


Remember the questions that began this article – if you are fortunate enough not to have any of those problems of abuse within the organization or group you are joined with, you are most fortunate indeed. I pray this is the case as you will be able to share the truth of Yahshua’s teachings with others and may even be the tool by which others will be pulled out of the way of Babylon and its pagan practices and doctrines as taught by most of the Christian community. The Roman Church introduced Pagan Christianity and the Protestants, her daughters, while rejecting the absolute supremacy of the Pope they have carried on the Pagan practices, making what once belonged to Babylon to now belong to Christianity. The names have, in most cases, been changed.


Never forget, it is a battle over names, over identity. Just read Revelation 13 and see how it is all about identity, the Beast, the False Prophet, the Number of a name, the name. And in Revelation 11, who is it the Two end time EliYaHs confront?


Then again, perhaps you are one of the 7,000, as in Elijah’s day, part of the invisible, spiritual Body of the Messiah. Invisible to the world but visible from Heaven.


 I pray you find this site a blessing and an encouragement. Hallelu-YaH
