WHAT IS THE PURPOSE
BELIEF IN A MESSIAH?
“See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me:
I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal:
neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand. ”
“The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them .
“Happy art thou, O Israel: who is like unto thee, O people saved by the LORD , the shield of thy help, and who is the sword of thy excellency! and thine enemies shall be found liars unto thee; and thou shalt tread upon their high places. ”
“Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. ”

I am constantly running into contact with Messianics. And as usual, I am always amazed that they will speak about the GOD of Israel and also acknowledge belief in this Messiah, whoever he is. I really don’t mind that they contact me because one day, I pray the Holy ONE will make me write or say something that will shake them into absolute hope, trust, and belief in ONLY the ONE GOD of Israel and cause them to FEAR HIM and tremble at HIS WORD. Truth be told, once we put the Holy ONE of Israel in our heart, we won’t think about another anyone or anything to believe in and much less in beliefs that have been insignificant and of no value in improving our lives. Once we put the GOD of Israel back into our heart, we will wisely only have before us HIS Book of the Law and “What Thus Saith the LORD” to lead and guide us.
GOD’s WORD is a Golden Treasure to those who listen and act appropriately and is a curse to those who do not. HIS WORD to Adam and the subsequent regretful dilemma, the very first lesson we have to learn from, was to steer clear of the Tree in the midst of the Garden. Well, he didn’t. He let the “serpent” deceive him, and consequently, for his stupidity, unto this day the world experiences death, women in travail bringing forth babies, and work by the sweat of our brow. Then many years later, GOD told the Nation of Israel to take the land of Canaan. But they had no courage and refused to trust in their GOD and obey HIS WORD even though HE had proven HIMSELF down in Egypt. Consequently, they wandered forty (40) years in the Wilderness all because they refused to adhere to the WORD of GOD! And it didn’t stop there. Many, many times, the Nation of Israel would not be obedient to GOD’s LAW and HIS WORD to HIS Prophets. And from this disobedience resulted Assyrian Captivity, Ancient Babylonian Captivity, and the TransAtlantic Slave Trade that resulted in yet more affliction and endless suffering unto this day.
It would appear that Messianics look to a Messiah for everything that ONLY the LORD GOD of Israel can provide, can accomplish, and can heal. This is a grave mistake. Our Holy ONE of Israel does not want us to liken HIM to anyone or to anything.
“To whom will ye liken me, and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be like?
“Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,” Isaiah 46:5,9
“O Israel, return unto the LORD thy God; for thou hast fallen by thine iniquity.
“Take with you words, and turn to the LORD: say unto him, Take away all iniquity, and receive us graciously: so will we render the calves of our lips.
“I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him.
“I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon.” Hosea 14:1,2,4,5
Although, this Message herewith is with hopes that Messianics will end waiting for a Messiah, it is more importantly for shedding yet even GREATER LIGHT on the Most High GOD, the CREATOR, the GOD of Abraham and Moses regarding the importance of belief in ONLY HIM and looking to HIM for our Salvation and Deliverance - a manifestation that ONLY Our reputable and unfailing GOD can bring to fruition. When we start looking to “man” or “image” for peace, happiness, and prosperity, this is when we invite all manner of problems, as well as walk in darkness. And the world has effectively proven for millennia that any religion that looks to and believes in man (or image) and/or his theology has only sorrows and suffering as evidence of the worth of this belief. Thus, this writing HIGHLIGHTS the Holy ONE of Israel and HIS WORD and questions the credibility of belief in a Messiah. Accordingly, “What is the Purpose of Belief in a Messiah and calling upon him?” ISRAELITES CANNOT SERVE TWO GODS! AND DECISIVELY, ISRAELITES CANNOT BELIEVE IN BUT THE ONE GOD OF ABRAHAM AND MOSES!
“…there is none among them that calleth unto me.
“And the pride of Israel testifieth to his face: and they do not return to the LORD their God, nor seek him for all this.
“Woe unto them! for they have fled from me: destruction unto them! because they have transgressed against me: though I have redeemed them, yet they have spoken lies against me.
“And they have not cried unto me with their heart, when they howled upon their beds: they assemble themselves for corn and wine, and they rebel against me.”
What WORD did Our GOD need to leave for us to make us know and realize that our duty is to HIM ALONE, HIS LAW, and to HIS WORD that HE left for us by HIS Prophets? And what did Our GOD mean by leaving HIS WORD for those of us alive today? Isn’t it that we must be OBEDIENT to all that HE has COMMANDED of us? And wasn’t it GOD’s Prophet Moses who was COMMANDED to teach us all that we need to know?
As remarkable as he was, this Prophet Moses was never called a “Messiah” and GOD never directed the Children of Israel to “believe in” and “wait on” him, either. As a matter of fact, Moses and ALL OF GOD’s PROPHETS directed the Children of Israel to believe ONLY in the Holy ONE of Israel and to live by HIS LAW. The upshot of GOD sending HIS Prophets to HIS People was to inform them of HIS Love for them and HIS Promises, the importance of keeping HIS LAW, and of their punishment if they didn’t. None of HIS WORD entails belief in a Messiah. In choosing for HIMSELF a Covenant People, the GOD of Israel is looking for Israelites who will Exalt HIM, shed light on HIM, pray to HIM, and Represent HIM in RIGHTEOUSNESS according to HIS LAW. Never has this GOD of Israel even suggested that Israelites revere some fabricated Messiah who has done absolutely nothing for the Nation of Israel in their beginning, in the Wilderness, in the land, or even during these latter days. And besides, when we look to a Messiah or any other idol, without question, we will forget Our GOD!
“But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
“And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the LORD thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish.” Deuteronomy 8:18
“Can a maid forget her ornaments, or a bride her attire? yet my people have forgotten me days without number.” Jeremiah 2:32
When the Most High GOD of Israel made a Covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, it was then that we could no longer hope in anyone or anything but HIM. Thus, to look to a Messiah is dead wrong. And not only must Israel look to the Holy ONE of Israel, but so also will ALL THE WORLD.
Therefore, the following questions are to raise consciousness to much Scriptural evidence that belief in a “Messiah” is unfounded in the WORD of GOD, and that belief in “man” is of no gratification whatsoever:
- Why did GOD write the “First Commandment?”
- Who are the “Servants” of the GOD of Israel?
- Who did GOD “FORM” and choose to show forth HIS Praise?
- Who did GOD choose to be a “LIGHT” to the world?
- Who “Redeems” Israel?
- Who is Israel’s “SAVIOR?”
- What GOD gets ALL the “GLORY?”
- What man did GOD choose to reign over the Kingdom of Israel FOREVER?
- Which man did GOD say HE would send in the LATTER DAYS?
If Our GOD has so MERCIFULLY given us ANSWERS to the above questions, and none of them relate to this so-called Messiah, then why give any credence to a Messiah at all? This Messiah was formed in the minds of people during the Grecian and Roman Eras, long after GOD’s establishment of the Israelites and long after their exile. And neither the “Old Testament” nor GOD’s WORD - “Thus Saith the LORD” – COMMANDS Israelites to believe in a Messiah. And for what reason do we need to believe in a Messiah, anyway?
The Israelites had been well informed of GOD’s Paths of Righteousness and Salvation in the Wilderness long before the concept of a “Messiah” was established. Also, they were COMMANDED to NOT add to or diminish from this Divine Way of Life that has the ONE GOD of Abraham as its OMNIPOTENT SUPREME BEING. Therefore, how can Israelites (the apple of GOD’s Eye) believe in such a Messiah person when it was the ONE GOD of Moses that gave the SEED of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel everything: the land, a Kingdom, and peace and serenity from their enemies all around them?
“…thou in thy manifold mercies forsookest them not in the wilderness: the pillar of the cloud departed not from them by day, to lead them in the way; neither the pillar of fire by night, to shew them light, and the way wherein they should go.
“Thou gavest also thy good spirit to instruct them, and withheldest not thy manna from their mouth, and gavest them water for their thirst. Yea, forty years didst thou sustain them in the wilderness, so that they lacked nothing….
“Moreover thou gavest them kingdoms and nations, and didst divide them into corners: so they possessed the land of Sihon, and the land of the king of Heshbon, and the land of Og king of Bashan.
Their children also multipliedst thou as the stars of heaven, and broughtest them into the land, concerning which thou hadst promised to their fathers, that they should go in to possess it.
“So the children went in and possessed the land, and thou subduedst before them the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites… And they took strong cities, and a fat land, and possessed houses full of all goods, wells digged, vineyards, and oliveyards, and fruit trees in abundance: so they did eat, and were filled, and became fat, and delighted themselves in thy great goodness.”
And now, after all these years in the hands of our enemies because of our great sins against Our Most High GOD, we still don’t know that the LORD Our GOD is the ONE GOD we must believe in and in no one else?
“And the LORD said unto Moses, How long will this people provoke me? and how long will it be ere they believe me, for all the signs which I have shewed among them?” Numbers 14:11
“Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.” Isaiah 43:10
More than anything, we must realize beyond a shadow of a doubt that for Israelites, EXALTATION and REVERENCE is of the ONE GOD, the CREATOR of Heaven and Earth, in order that HE ALONE will be SERVED and WORSHIPPED for HIS POWER to do all things without fail. As you read the Scriptures provided, ask why Israelites, of all people, would need a Messiah in our midst when one never existed before us during the days of our forefathers in the Wilderness or when they inhabited the land that GOD gave them to fulfill HIS Promises to Abraham. Consider also that if every knee will bow to the Most High GOD of Hosts, then it will be this All-Mighty GOD that will be Magnified, and this Messiah will prove himself to be a fraud. The GOD of Israel WILL NOT give HIS Glory to another! And HE will be EXALTED!
“I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.” Isaiah 42:8
Although this Most High GOD sent HIS Prophets to inform the Israelites of HIS WORD and sent men to save them out of the hands of their enemies, NEVER, EVER was it GOD’s intention for them to serve and worship these men of GOD. We must learn to rely on that which is GOD - Our True SAVIOR (II Chronicles 16:8) and hope in HIS Mercy.
“O the hope of Israel, the saviour thereof in time of trouble….” Jeremiah 14:8
And if there are some who choose to believe that this Messiah was/is a savior that GOD sent, then they should know that GOD GAVE the Israelites MANY “Saviors” to Deliver HIS People out of the hands of their captors. The definitive words here are “GOD GAVE!” These Saviors otherwise never would have acted and never would have been successful without GOD’s Authority to save HIS People, Israel. And it should be noted that all the Saviors that GOD sent for HIS People were successful in their endeavors. However, after Ezra and Nehemiah, GOD ceased to send Saviors for the Israelites, and HE ceased to send HIS Prophets, as well. The very last of GOD’s Prophets were Zechariah, Haggai, and Malachi – from approximately 537 B.C.E. to 400 B.C.E..
“Therefore thou deliveredst them into the hand of their enemies, who vexed them: and in the time of their trouble, when they cried unto thee, thou heardest them from heaven; and according to thy manifold mercies thou gavest them saviours, who saved them out of the hand of their enemies.
“But after they had rest, they did evil again before thee: therefore leftest thou them in the hand of their enemies, so that they had the dominion over them: yet when they returned, and cried unto thee, thou heardest them from heaven; and many times didst thou deliver them according to thy mercies;” Nehemiah 9:27,28
“Mischief shall come upon mischief, and rumour shall be upon rumour; then shall they seek a vision of the prophet; but the law shall perish from the priest, and counsel from the ancients.” Ezekiel 7:26
“Therefore night shall be unto you, that ye shall not have a vision; and it shall be dark unto you, that ye shall not divine; and the sun shall go down over the prophets, and the day shall be dark over them.
“Then shall the seers be ashamed, and the diviners confounded: yea, they shall all cover their lips; for there is no answer of God.” Micah 3:6,7
Thus, Our GOD of Israel calls all the shots, NOT this Messiah for whom people look and wait.
Why did GOD write the “First Commandment?”
“And they shall know that I am the LORD their God, that brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, that I may dwell among them: I am the LORD their God.”
“Unto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest know that the LORD he is God; there is none else beside him.”
“Thou shalt have no other gods before me…
Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them:
for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God….”
How can we dismiss these passages? Our GOD gave the Israelites this “First Commandment” for a reason. And HE wants those of us living today to understand that HE must be in our hearts, that we must FEAR HIM, and that we must never turn to anyone or anything for help, but rather that we must TRUST in ONLY HIM for EVERYTHING!
When we FEAR Our GOD of Israel and live with HIM in our hearts, there will HE put HIS LAW, also. And believe me, HE knows those who put absolute trust in HIM. Let’s not be unmindful of the ONE GOD that is able to provide all our needs even before we ask for them.
“ So the LORD alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him.” Deuteronomy 32:12
“Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee.
”See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.”
“And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.” Isaiah 65:24
And if Our GOD of Israel wants us to DO HIS LAW and to FEAR HIM, then let’s be obedient, so that we can fulfill prophecy and show forth GOD’s Praises for HIS Holy Name’s Sake and live in HIS Peace.
“Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which the LORD your God commanded to teach you, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go to possess it:
“That thou mightest fear the LORD thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son's son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.” Deuteronomy 6:1,2
“Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name.” Deuteronomy 6:13
”And he brought us out from thence, that he might bring us in, to give us the land which he sware unto our fathers. And the LORD commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the LORD our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day.” Deuteronomy 6:23,24
“And therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the LORD is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him. For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem: thou shalt weep no more: he will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry; when he shall hear it, he will answer thee.” Isaiah 30:18,19
Fearing GOD is the beginning of Wisdom. Face it; it’s not at all about belief in a Messiah, but the contrary! We must believe in and FEAR the very GOD that made us who we are – the Children of Israel for HIS Holy Name’s Sake!
“Thus shall they know that I the LORD their God am with them, and that they, even the house of Israel, are my people, saith the Lord GOD.
“And ye my flock, the flock of my pasture, are men, and I am your God, saith the Lord GOD.” Ezekiel 34:30,31
Who are the “Servants” of the GOD of Israel?
“Remember these, O Jacob and Israel; for thou art my servant:
I have formed thee; thou art my servant:
O Israel, thou shalt not be forgotten of me.”
GOD’s Servants are all of the House of Israel, but especially the Priests whom the GOD of Israel Chose to MINISTER unto HIM from Day to Day in HIS Holy Temple in Jerusalem. Let’s face it; this daily worship of the Holy ONE of Israel is of great significance. GOD’s Priests were COMMANDED to serve and worship the GOD of Israel in the morning and in the evening. This manner of serving and worshipping the All-Mighty GOD of Israel throughout the day with singing, sacrificing, offerings, and PRAISING the Holy ONE leaves no room for looking for, waiting for, and/or believing in a Messiah!
“Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea. The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father's God, and I will exalt him. The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.”
Exodus 15:1 – 3
“And take thou unto thee Aaron thy brother, and his sons with him, from among the children of Israel, that he may minister unto me in the priest's office, even Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar, Aaron's sons.” Exodus 28:1
“This shall be a continual burnt offering throughout your generations at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the LORD: where I will meet you, to speak there unto thee.
“And there I will meet with the children of Israel, and the tabernacle shall be sanctified by my glory.
“And I will sanctify the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar: I will sanctify also both Aaron and his sons, to minister to me in the priest's office.
“And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will be their God.”
Exodus 29:42 – 45
THAT BEING A GIVEN, FOR SURE, WE CANNOT BELIEVE IN ANY ONE BUT OUR GOD AND SAVIOR, THE GOD AND CREATOR, THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL!
“And thou shalt anoint Aaron and his sons, and consecrate them, that they may minister unto me in the priest's office.” Exodus 30:30
“The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and exalted be the God of the rock of my salvation. It is God that avengeth me, and that bringeth down the people under me, And that bringeth me forth from mine enemies: thou also hast lifted me up on high above them that rose up against me: thou hast delivered me from the violent man. Therefore I will give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and I will sing praises unto thy name. He is the tower of salvation for his king: and sheweth mercy to his anointed, unto David, and to his seed for evermore.” II Samuel 22:47 – 51
“And these are the singers, chief of the fathers of the Levites, who remaining in the chambers were free: for they were employed in that work day and night.”
I Chronicles 9:33
“This is the portion of the anointing of Aaron, and of the anointing of his sons, out of the offerings of the LORD made by fire, in the day when he presented them to minister unto the LORD in the priest's office;
“Which the LORD commanded to be given them of the children of Israel, in the day that he anointed them, by a statute for ever throughout their generations.” Leviticus 7:35,36
For those who claim that this Messiah is GOD’s Prophet or even GOD’s Servant, please know that this cannot be true. GOD advised the Israelites of HIS Prophets and Servants, and actually, there was never any doubt about any Man of GOD – not any one of them! All people need do is listen to individuals, and if they speak in the Name of the GOD of Israel and HIS LAW and practice what they preach, then it is easily determined just who they represent and follow. But this so-called Messiah is shrouded with so much suspicion that in no way can he be GOD SENT. First and foremost, he should have directed people to believe in GOD and NOT him! That to me was a dead giveaway.
Furthermore, at the time of the so-called coming of this Messiah, GOD had long since ceased to provide HIS People with Prophets, and we have Scripture to prove it. Upon returning to the land after the seventy-year captivity in Ancient Babylon, the Israelites still would not serve the Holy ONE of Israel and keep HIS LAW. Thus, the Holy ONE of Israel never gave them control of the Land of Israel during the days of Ezra and Nehemiah. Consequently, GOD ceased to provide HIS Prophets for the Israelites, and HE departed from them - before the Grecian-Roman Era. GOD’s departure from our forefathers facilitated and fulfilled all the curses in Deuteronomy 28th Chapter. That was the beginning of the end of the Israelites for forsaking the Most High GOD of Israel and HIS Righteous Book of the Law until Israelites return back to HIM and HIS LAW – NOT this Messiah. (Let’s not ever forget Deuteronomy 30th Chapter that provides the guidelines for our return.)
“Her gates are sunk into the ground; he hath destroyed and broken her bars: her king and her princes are among the Gentiles: the law is no more ; her prophets also find no vision from the LORD.” Lamentations 2:9
“They shall go with their flocks and with their herds to seek the LORD; but they shall not find him; he hath withdrawn himself from them.” Hosea 5:6
“The days of visitation are come, the days of recompence are come; Israel shall know it: the prophet is a fool, the spiritual man is mad, for the multitude of thine iniquity, and the great hatred.
“Though they bring up their children, yet will I bereave them, that there shall not be a man left: yea, woe also to them when I depart from them!” Hosea 9:7,12
Therefore, this Messiah who emerged out of this Gentile era unequivocally cannot be a Prophet of the GOD of Israel, and he most certainly cannot be a savior, for he saved no one out of the curses GOD put upon the Nation of Israel. So, again, for what purpose is this so-called Messiah? And if he is supposed to be anointed, then who anointed him, and who gave the COMMANDMENT to do so? The above passages prove that the True and Living GOD did not choose a Messiah for any Holy tasks in Jerusalem. GOD’s COMMANDMENT was to have the Priests the Levites Minister before HIM in HIS Holy Temple.
and choose to show forth HIS Praise?
“Because I will publish the name of the LORD:
ascribe ye greatness unto our God.”
“This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.”
If GOD chose a Messiah to show forth HIS Praises, HE never mentioned it to the Nation of Israel. When Israelites walk in the Name of the LORD GOD of Israel, their ONE True “Father,” there is no need to magnify a Prophet, Priest, Angel, Messiah, or even the likes of Ben Ammi. If the GOD of Israel will reign over Israelites, then HE is our ROCK, SAVIOR, LORD, REDEEMER, and our ALL. And of a TRUTH, this GOD of Israel has proven HIMSELF to be the True GOD of Israel that is worthy of utmost reverence, and of a certainty we do not need anyone or anything else be he or it called a Messiah or whatever confusing the issue.
GOD has specifically chosen the Nation of Israel for HIS EXALTATION and PRAISE, and there can be no question about it!
“This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.”
“And ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.” Jeremiah 30:22
Israelites must walk in the Name of the LORD Our GOD FOR EVER and EVER and show forth HIS Praise in the process! That means there can be no room for belief in a Messiah. The JEALOUS GOD of Israel has invested too much time, energy, and heartache in this Nation of Israel to want a Messiah to take even a fraction of HIS Glory. Know of a certainty that GOD has specifically chosen the Nation of Israel for HIS EXALTATION and PRAISE, and HE wants it no other way!
“And in that day shall ye say, Praise the LORD, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted.” Isaiah 12:4
Thus, to revere a Messiah would go against GOD’s COMMANDMENT to show forth HIS Praises, as well as cause much confusion, obviously.
“And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.”
“Sing unto the LORD, all the earth; shew forth from day to day his salvation.
Declare his glory among the heathen; his marvellous works among all nations.
For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised: he also is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the people are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.”
I Chronicles 16:23 – 26
“Sing unto the LORD, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day. Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people.
For the LORD is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.”
Psalm 96:2 – 4
“I will give thee thanks in the great congregation: I will praise thee among much people.” Psalm 35:18
“O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.
“Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works.” Psalm 105:1,2
If the Most High GOD of Israel CHOSE for HIMSELF a COVENANT PEOPLE, then it makes since that HE would want them to be this “LIGHT” to the World to Represent HIM in Truth and in Righteousness by keeping HIS Book of the Law that epitomizes everything HE stands for. As far as being a “LIGHT” to the World is concerned, there is no mention of this Messiah.
“Let Israel hope in the LORD: for with the LORD there is mercy,
and with him is plenteous redemption.
“And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.”
“For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not;
I will help thee. Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel;
I will help thee, saith the LORD, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.”
“Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts;
I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.”
“I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee. Sing, O ye heavens;
for the LORD hath done it: shout, ye lower parts of the earth:
break forth into singing, ye mountains, O forest, and every tree therein:
for the LORD hath redeemed Jacob, and glorified himself in Israel.
Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb,
I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone;
that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself; That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward,
and maketh their knowledge foolish;”
Isaiah 44:22 - 25
If the Holy ONE of Israel PROMISES to be our HELP, and REDEEM us, HIS Chosen People, then for what reason do we need a Messiah ? If Our Holy ONE of Israel will hear when we call unto HIM, then what is the purpose of believing in a Messiah?
“…know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the LORD will hear when I call unto him.” Psalm 4:3
“And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.” Isaiah 49:26
“Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy
shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.
“I, even I, am he that comforteth you…” Isaiah 51:11,12
“As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.
“And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country.” Ezekiel 34:12,13
“Therefore will I save my flock, and they shall no more be a prey; and I will judge between cattle and cattle.” Ezekiel 34:22
“And I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing.
“And the tree of the field shall yield her fruit, and the earth shall yield her increase, and they shall be safe in their land, and shall know that I am the LORD, when I have broken the bands of their yoke, and delivered them out of the hand of those that served themselves of them.” Ezekiel 34:26,27
“O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself; but in me is thine help .” Hosea 13:9
Being GOD’s Chosen People, we should believe in Our GOD of Israel and know HIM NOW, and not wait until it’s too late. Only those of us who accept HIM with our whole heart and soul as Our ONLY SAVIOR and HELP will be the ones who will experience the phenomenal wonders of knowing this Awesome GOD and serving and worshipping HIM. Unfortunately, those who will believe otherwise will be miserably disappointed and will only know the horrors of death and much suffering and misery.
These passages are self-explanatory. And if we read them with understanding, we can see that the Holy ONE of Israel is telling us that we don’t need anyone but HIM!
“…we will walk in the name of the LORD our God for ever and ever.
“In that day, saith the LORD, will I assemble her that halteth, and I will gather her that is driven out, and her that I have afflicted;
“And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast far off a strong nation: and the LORD shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, even for ever.” Micah 4:5 – 7
We need Our GOD of Israel, and we need HIS undivided attention to be with us to teach us of HIS Ways. And equally as important, we need to FEAR HIM to believe in HIM, and to be OBEDIENT to HIS Book of the Law, as it is written. Forget about a Messiah, and find ways of returning to the Holy ONE of Israel Our ONLY Redeemer!
“I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.
I have declared, and have saved,
and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you:
therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God.”
Let’s not forget GOD’s past WORKS for HIS Chosen, and let’s not minimize HIS ability and Power to again SAVE the SEED of the Biblical Israelites. To do so would be insane. As well, let’s not sensationalize a Messiah who is nothing more than the imagination of the Gentiles’ evil efforts to make for themselves a god comparable to the CREATOR, the Holy ONE of Israel. For us to do so, would also be insane and would put our lives in serious jeopardy.
How can we read about all that the GOD of Israel ALONE has done and yet promises to do for the Israelites, and then look to and wait on a Messiah or other “man,” woman, or idol for the Salvation we so desperately need? How can we even consider such a notion when it has never ever been anyone but Our GOD to help us and save us from our enemies?
“Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.” Psalm 27:14
“Truly in vain is salvation hoped for from the hills, and from the multitude of mountains: truly in the LORD our God is the salvation of Israel.” Jeremiah 3:23
The SAVIOR of Israel has been and yet is the ONE GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel. By HIS own admission, HE is GOD, HE is Israel’s SAVIOR, and there is none else besides HIM.
“Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.”
Isn’t this enough of a reason to abandon this Messiah, who serves no purpose, and seek to believe in, hope in, and trust in only the Most High GOD of Moses? Our SAVIOR knows those who trust in HIM and who hope in HIS Mercy.
“As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him. For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God? God is my strength and power: And he maketh my way perfect.” II Samuel 22:31 – 33
“Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.”
“Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:” Isaiah 26:4
“I will also leave in the midst of thee an afflicted and poor people, and they shall trust in the name of the LORD.” Zephaniah 3:12
It’s ONLY given to the GOD of Israel to SAVE, DELIVER, AND REDEEM the Nation of Israel. And it is given to the SEED of the Biblical Israelites to Represent the GOD of Israel in Truth and show forth HIS Praises in Righteousness. Then Our GOD of Israel, Our SAVIOR, will wipe away tears from our faces. And if HE says that HE will do this for us, I cannot imagine why we would want to believe in that which has not done anything for the Nation of Israel or much less the world for that matter.
“He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it.
“And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.” Isaiah 25:8
So, for what is the purpose of a Messiah if the Holy ONE of Israel fulfills all of our dire needs and if we are well advised to TRUST IN ONLY HIM, THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL? Of a Truth, the Holy ONE of Israel will endure FOREVER. We know this. We also know that this All-Mighty GOD has a heavenly dwelling place. But we know nothing about the whereabouts of this Messiah and only that he is a man and a useless one at that. Let us use WISDOM and believe in and wait on the ONE GOD that saved our forefathers out of Egypt, that returned the Judahites to their heritage under Ezra and Nehemiah, and that promises to re-establish the SEED of the Biblical Israelites to their heritage. This is the GOD worthy of our love, admiration, belief, and FEAR!
or will a Messiah reign over the Israelites in Mount Zion?
“And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways,
and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law,
and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
“And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people:
and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
neither shall they learn war any more.”
“Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed,
when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem,
and before his ancients gloriously.”
“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the great trumpet shall be blown,
and they shall come which were ready to perish in the land of Assyria,
and the outcasts in the land of Egypt,
and shall worship the LORD in the holy mount at Jerusalem.”
Let us be wise and discern between GOD’s WORD and HIS Truth and that which “man” professes for the magnification of his evil and wicked agendas. The whole of the “Old Testament” is all about MAGNIFICATION of the CREATOR, the True and Living GOD, and HIS Righteous Book of the Law. And this GOD did not go through all these wondrous WORKS for naught. The Earth that HE Created will serve the People HE Created, and HE will reign SUPREME and be EXALTED by every person left remaining after HE has JUDGED this planet.
“Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.
“I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.”
“Hear the word of the LORD, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name's sake, said, Let the LORD be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed.” Isaiah 66:5
“And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.” Isaiah 66:23
If GOD alone made the Heavens and the Earth, then HE alone deserves the Praise of every Creature. And to acknowledge a Messiah for any reason when GOD alone deserves all the Praise and Thanks is a SIN and grounds for the vengeance of the LORD! We must never forget that Our GOD and ONLY SAVIOR is a JEALOUS GOD! And HE wants us to look to HIM for Deliverance and for everything! There is no purpose for a Messiah in our midst when Our GOD will reign over us and live in our midst!
“…the LORD shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, even for ever.” Micah 4:7
“And he said unto me, Son of man, the place of my throne, and the place of the soles of my feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel for ever, and my holy name, shall the house of Israel no more defile,
neither they, nor their kings, by their whoredom, nor by the carcases of their kings in their high places.
“Now let them put away their whoredom, and the carcases of their kings, far from me, and I will dwell in the midst of them for ever.”
Of course, of course we will see the SEED of King David on the throne in Jerusalem, and we will give him the respect and esteem he will certainly deserve. But the Holy ONE of Israel will be Our Great KING even over him.
“The LORD hath taken away thy judgments, he hath cast out thine enemy: the king of Israel, even the LORD, is in the midst of thee: thou shalt not see evil any more.” Zephaniah 3:15
“Thus saith the LORD, your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; For your sake I have sent to Babylon, and have brought down all their nobles, and the Chaldeans, whose cry is in the ships.” Isaiah 43:14
“And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd.
“And I the LORD will be their God, and my servant David a prince among them; I the LORD have spoken it.” Ezekiel 34:23,24
Thus, this is the very reason why we should be waiting on Our GOD and believing ONLY IN HIM and not in some Messiah whom GOD has neither mentioned or presented before HIS Chosen People, Israel.
In all honesty, and I believe I can speak for those of us who love the Holy ONE of Israel with all our heart, soul, and might, we will be too engrossed in daily worshipping and giving much thanks to Our SAVIOR, the Holy ONE, to be concerned with a Messiah!
“…we will walk in the name of the LORD our God for ever and ever.”
Which GOD gets ALL the “GLORY?”
“For mine own sake, even for mine own sake, will I do it:
for how should my name be polluted? and I will not give my glory unto another.
“Hearken unto me, O Jacob and Israel, my called; I am he;
I am the first, I also am the last.”
Didn’t Our GOD say that HE would gather the Twelve Tribes of Jacob from the countries of our enemies and bring us to our own land? O yes, HE DID! So, why should we be waiting on a Messiah?
“Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that it shall no more be said, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;
“But, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers.” Jeremiah 16:14,15
“And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country.
“I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel.
“I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, saith the Lord GOD.
“I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick: but I will destroy the fat and the strong; I will feed them with judgment.” Ezekiel 34:13 – 16
“I will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of thee; I will surely gather the remnant of Israel; I will put them together as the sheep of Bozrah, as the flock in the midst of their fold: they shall make great noise by reason of the multitude of men.” Micah 2:12
Surely, no one in the knowledge of GOD’s WORD will believe that this JEALOUS GOD of Israel will give this Divine task of SAVING HIS Chosen People who HE wants to serve and worship HIM in Truth and in Righteousness FOREVER to some Messiah man! And if there are those who believe such, then they should know that EVERYTHING this GOD of Israel is about entails HIMSELF, HIS Holy Book of the Law, HIS Chosen and Covenant People (the Israelites), and HIS Holy Land! If Messianics and other peoples of this world will not accept this reality, then the world will continue to be deceived and live in darkness, chaos, and confusion.
Not under any circumstances will this All-Mighty GOD of Israel give HIS Glory to a Messiah or any another after HE has manifest the Greatest Deliverance ever (after causing the Gentiles to enslave and control HIS Chosen People Israel for millennia for forsaking HIM and HIS LAW). And make no mistakes about it. Israel went into captivity because of forsaking GOD – NOT for forsaking some useless Messiah.
As well, give the following fact much thought: Three Holy Days are to be observed in GOD’s Holy City Jerusalem – The Feast of Passover, The Feast of Weeks, and The Feast of Tabernacles. And they are all for THANKSGIVING to the Most High GOD of Israel for HIS Mercy and Goodness to the Children of Israel. Believe me; there is no room in our Divine Hebrew Israelite Culture for belief in a Messiah for everything we are COMMANDED TO DO GIVES GLORY AND PRAISE TO THE ONE GOD OF ISRAEL, OUR ONLY SAVIOR.
“Give unto the LORD, ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength. Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.” I Chronicles 16:28,29
to reign over the Kingdom of Israel FOREVER?
“Therefore I will give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen,
and I will sing praises unto thy name.
“He is the tower of salvation for his king: and sheweth mercy to his anointed, unto David, and to his seed for evermore.”
II Samuel 22:50,51
“Their blood shall therefore return upon the head of Joab,
and upon the head of his seed for ever: but upon David, and upon his seed,
and upon his house, and upon his throne, shall there be peace for ever
from the LORD.”
I Kings 2:33
“Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end,
upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it,
and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.”
The GOD of Israel did not give HIS Kingdom to anyone but to King David (a man after HIS own Heart) and his Seed. Therefore, this “Messiah” who supposedly made his debut 2,000 plus years ago again pans out to be a loser in people’s contrived effort to magnify him. He was no king, he had no kingdom, and he established no kingdom. And any mere mention of him being a Messiah at the time of his so-called coming is without basis and does not make him any more credible and acceptable as so many have unfortunately chosen to believe.
“And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.” Micah 4:2
“Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.
“In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.”
The Holy ONE of Israel chose the SEED of King David to rule in Jerusalem. And rightly so, for King David knows exactly what must be done for Israelites to maintain control of GOD’s Kingdom in the Land of Israel. King David knew GOD and knew to Praise only HIM.
“I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.
“I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High.” Psalm 9:1,2
“I go the way of all the earth: be thou strong therefore, and shew thyself a man;
“And keep the charge of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and his testimonies, as it is written in the law of Moses, that thou mayest prosper in all that thou doest, and whithersoever thou turnest thyself:
“That the LORD may continue his word which he spake concerning me, saying, If thy children take heed to their way, to walk before me in truth with all their heart and with all their soul, there shall not fail thee (said he) a man on the throne of Israel.”
I Kings 2:2 – 4
As you can see, there is no mention of any “Messiah” or the seed of a Messiah, either. And since we already know from GOD’s WORD that the seed of King David is already our established King over the returning Remnant of Israel, then what is the purpose of a Messiah?
Not only that; as we well know, Our Merciful GOD of Israel is to put HIS LAW and HIS Spirit in our inward parts, so that we shall no more teach every man his neighbor.
“Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
“Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:
“But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
“And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.” Jeremiah 31:31 – 34
“For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.
“Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
“A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
“And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
“And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.” Ezekiel 36:24 - 28
Actually, this rather seals the coffin of a Messiah. Wouldn’t you think? If the GOD of Israel will put HIS Spirit in our hearts, then we will indeed know to speak of and believe in ONLY HIM!
HE would send in the LATTER DAYS?
“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming
of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:
“And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children,
and the heart of the children to their fathers,
lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.”
You can be sure that the man GOD said HE would send to HIS People during these latter days isn’t some questionable, mundane Messiah. GOD said HE would send the Prophet Elijah, the same Prophet who proved beyond a doubt that the GOD of Israel is GOD and that there is none other. This Man of GOD used what I term “The Elijah Test” (I Kings 18th Chapter) and called upon the All-Mighty GOD to prove HIMSELF to be the True and Living GOD. Well, the GOD of Israel most certainly DID, but few people today give any credence to this noteworthy event. Nevertheless, it will be this Prophet Elijah who will return to continue to shed LIGHT on this GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel, so that all the Remnant of Israel will return to HIM in Righteousness.
By the way, the Prophet Elijah never mentioned any “Messiah” during his day.
“They provoked him [GOD] to jealousy with strange gods , with abominations provoked they him to anger.
“They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not.
“Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee.” Deuteronomy 32:16 - 18
It must be realized that this Messiah business is something “new” to the Children of Israel. The Holy ONE did all the Miraculous WORKS in Israel’s Day. And at that time, this Messiah concept was unknown in the Hebrew Israelite culture, and the reason is that EVERYTHING was about the worship of the Most High GOD of Israel. This belief in a Messiah is something that materialized resulting from our forefathers seeking to worship false gods and from our being cursed for rejecting our GOD of Israel and HIS LAW. As you well know, the Holy ONE cursed us to believe in false gods because of our great sins against HIM.
“Therefore will I cast you out of this land into a land that ye know not, neither ye nor your fathers; and there shall ye serve other gods day and night; where I will not shew you favour.” Jeremiah 16:13
Thus, as punishment for seeking after entities other than Our Holy ONE of Israel, we not only believe in these false gods, including this so-called Messiah, but Our GOD sarcastically said to turn to these “new” false gods for deliverance in the time of our tribulation because we forsook HIM and because HE knew precisely that our belief in them would be in vain. As we look back on all the hundreds of years under Gentile rule, we can see in history that there was NO One to plead our cause, to save us, or to deliver us – not the Messiah, not jc, and certainly not Ben Ammi who calls himself the “Anointed Messianic Leader of the Kingdom of God” if you can believe it! This is the man who appeals to Israelite groups from GOD’s Holy Land to make him the “Leader” over all the Black Hebrews when he also follows in the wicked footsteps of our evil forefathers in forsaking GOD’s Righteous Book of the Law. This is the “Messianic Leader” who returned to GOD’s Holy Land with his own agenda and who defies GOD’s Law of the Seventh Day Sabbath to keep it HOLY (Nehemiah 13:15 – 18). This is the man who is the epitome of everything that is wrong with the Children of Israel as he perpetuates the very sins that caused Our GOD to cast us from the land in the first place. This is the man – the Anointed Messianic Leader - who has his congregation believing in him that “he” is a savior and that “he” has established GOD’s Kingdom in Israel. He and jc have proven one thing: they both delude themselves!
“And he shall say, Where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted… let them rise up and help you, and be your protection.” Deuteronomy 32:37,38
“Yet ye have forsaken me, and served other gods: wherefore I will deliver you no more. Go and cry unto the gods which ye have chosen; let them deliver you in the time of your tribulation.” Judges 10:13,14
And O, My People, it happened, every suffering word and painful moment happened for our senseless sins in seeking to serve and believe in false gods. Our GOD did not lie. HE cursed us, and we have paid double (Jeremiah 16:18) because our forefathers served and worshipped false gods and forsook the GOD of Israel and HIS LAW. They suffered and also have we for two millennia and then some. And after all this time, we still do not know Our GOD, but purport to know all about some so-called Messiah who is neither mentioned in GOD’s LAW nor in HIS WORD to HIS Prophets that we, Israelites, should wait for this Messiah or serve him. How can we forget that when the Children of Israel were down in Egypt, the Prophet Moses told Pharaoh that the GOD of Israel said to “Let my people go, that they MAY SERVE ME in the wilderness” (Exodus 7:16 and Exodus 23:25). How can we forget this?
“Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.” Psalm 27:14
“Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
“Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
“Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and HE SHALL BRING IT TO PASS.
“And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
“REST IN THE LORD, AND WAIT PATIENTLY FOR HIM: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.” Psalm 37:3 - 7
There is no profit in belief in a Messiah. Shouldn’t we all be able to realize this since this Messiah is supposed to exist and has not helped us one iota? Why can’t we see that this Messiah is the work of Gentiles in their desperate effort to keep us deceived and believing in lies? So long as we serve any and everything under the sun and in the heavens – other than the True and Living GOD – we perpetuate the rule of the Gentiles. They know that as long as we believe in false gods, idols, images, and Messiahs that we will never return to Our SAVIOR, the GOD of Israel. So, let’s stop profaning the GOD of Israel with talk about this Messiah NONSENSE, that keeps us ignorant, in exile, and under the control of the Gentiles!
“And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, saith the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.” Ezekiel 36:23
There is no record of any Messiah saving the Children of Israel out of this horrific captivity! How do I know, Israel? I know because the Israelites are still scattered throughout the four corners of this Earth. I know because the Gentiles still have control of GOD’s Holy Land. Wake up, Israel! Wake up, World and know from whence cometh our help. “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.” And the sooner we realize that this All-Mighty GOD of Hosts is GOD and that HE ALONE deserves to be served and worshipped, the sooner HE will return us to our heritage and the sooner HE will cut off the wicked and establish HIS Peace upon this Earth.
Our Holy ONE Blessed us tremendously in the past and cursed us harshly (to say the least) when we forsook HIM and HIS LAW. And yet, HE will once again have mercy and cause our return when we return to HIM.
“The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God. For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness.” Isaiah 10:21,22
“Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.” Isaiah 55:7
“Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, Return, thou backsliding Israel, saith the LORD; and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful, saith the LORD, and I will not keep anger for ever.
“Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the LORD thy God, and hast scattered thy ways to the strangers under every green tree, and ye have not obeyed my voice, saith the LORD.
“Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:”
Jeremiah 3:12 – 14
“It may be that the house of Judah will hear all the evil which I purpose to do unto them; that they may return every man from his evil way; that I may forgive their iniquity and their sin.” Jeremiah 36:3
“I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early.” Hosea 5:15
“Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the LORD of hosts. …” Malachi 3:7
The whole of the “Old Testament” is about the GOD of Israel, HIS LAW, HIS Covenant People, and HIS Blessings and Curses for Israelites forsaking HIM.
This Book is also about the JEALOUS GOD of Israel who COMMANDS that Israelites have no other gods before HIM, and certainly that would also mean mere man, this Messiah, in whom many people believe. Thus, how in the world, given the volumes of information we have supporting Praise and Glory of the ONE GOD of Israel, can we give credence to a Messiah or anything knowing that for Israelites, GOD’s Chosen People, there can only be ONE GOD and ONE WAY if we want to return to our heritage? We have endured quite a lot, and we can still change the times but only if we return to Our Holy ONE of Israel. Please, let us return to what we know to be viable and reliable TRUTH, and that can only be the GOD of our fathers, the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Let’s face it, some things we just can’t dismiss. GOD made the Nation of Israel from birth and the land of Israel for HIS habitation to dwell with them FOREVER. And GOD established HIS Perfect Book of the Law for man to live and do on this Earth HE so miraculously Created. And the greater aspect of all this is that HIS Chosen People were formed specifically to show forth HIS Praises. And the fact of the matter is that when this Chosen People, the Israelites (who had everything), forsook GOD and HIS LAW, they lost everything: Name, land, and their GOD. Now, WISDOM should tell us to return to this GOD with much supplication and beseech HIM for forgiveness in order that HE will be able to proceed with HIS plans of old. And in seeking this All-Mighty GOD of Israel for HIS Mercy, it behooves us to appeal to HIM with our whole heart, soul, and might and without any thoughts of hope in some unfounded Messiah. Would the GOD of Israel tell HIS Chosen Ones to hope in a Messiah if HE wanted them to HOPE in HIM?
“Let Israel hope in the LORD: for with the LORD there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption.
“And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.” Psalm 130:7,8
“Shew thy marvellous loving kindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up against them.” Psalm 17:7
“For the people turneth not unto him that smiteth them, neither do they seek the LORD of hosts.” Isaiah 9:13
After believing in the X-tian doctrine for the greater part of our lives, its difficult for some of us to abandon the visible figure of a deity, i.e., something we can “see.” But Israelites must realize and understand that the GOD of Israel never appeared to the Children of Israel in any form or similitude. Hence, Israelites have to let go of the pagan custom of seeing an image, idol, or “man” as a “saviour” and return to the ONE GOD that has proven HIMSELF to be GOD whether we can see HIM or not. Suffice HIS Miraculous WORKS to serve as “SIGNS” of HIS True Divinity, Power, and Might and believe in HIM.
When we truly put the GOD of Israel back in our lives, HE will know it. And it begins with our making this GOD of Israel and ONLY this GOD of Israel Number ONE in our lives. Isn’t this what the First Commandment is all about? “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” And isn’t this First Commandment also about serving the ONE GOD of Israel?
“And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.” Exodus 23:25
“Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name.” Deuteronomy 6:13
“And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul,
“To keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good?” Deuteronomy 10:12,13
“Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God; him shalt thou serve, and to him shalt thou cleave, and swear by his name .” Deuteronomy 10:20
And it’s all for GOD’s Holy Name’s Sake that HE, ALONE, be remembered, Praised, and EXALTED above all gods and man!
Thus, My People, those of you who wait on and look to a Messiah, please tell me what is the purpose of believing in this man? What is his role? I have already outlined the roles of the seed of King David, the Priests, the Remnant of Israel due to return, and the Prophet Elijah. But there is no role for a Messiah – none whatsoever! The Holy ONE of Israel and HIS Covenant People cover every purpose for serving, worshipping, representing, and EXALTING the GOD of Israel.
I am inclined to believe that it’s a lack of knowledge that causes people to believe in a Messiah. For if people will read our “Old Testament” history they will see that ONLY the ONE GOD of Israel can be MAGNIFIED and EXALTED.
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.” Hosea 4:6
Not under any circumstances can we serve the True and Living GOD and a Messiah. The JEALOUS GOD I believe in just won’t have it, and our present predicament stands to prove this fact. If those of you who believe in this Messiah cannot respond to the issues raised in this Message, then you have no grounds to speak about a man who cannot save and indeed who has not saved us from our sins or from the lands of our enemies. Seek the GOD of Israel, for HE is the GOD that saved Israel out of bondage down in Egypt. Without question HE did it once, and HE can do it again IF we return back to HIM and to HIS Righteous LAW (Deuteronomy 30th Chapter).
“Yet I am the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt,
and thou shalt know no god but me: for there is no saviour beside me.”
“The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble;
and he knoweth them that trust in him.”
“Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him
for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.”
The Prophets of the Most High GOD of Israel always cautioned the Israelites to “Hear the WORD of GOD.” We have GOD’s LAW and HIS WORD to HIS Prophets that we have been COMMANDED to live and do. Where is the WORD of this Messiah? And, indeed, if this man has a “word,” it cannot override the “WORD OF GOD.” As well, Our GOD of Israel does not tell us scores of times throughout the “Old Testament” for naught that HE is GOD and there is NONE ELSE!
“But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD.” Numbers 14:21
“All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.” Psalm 22:27
“The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.
“O Zion, that bringest good tidings, get thee up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God!
“Behold, the Lord GOD will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.” Isaiah 40:8 – 10
“For as the girdle cleaveth to the loins of a man, so have I caused to cleave unto me the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Judah, saith the LORD; that they might be unto me for a people, and for a name, and for a praise….”
“Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.”
“Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me.” Micah 7:7
“Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.” Ezekiel 37:4
“And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.” Deuteronomy 8:3
We are “DRY BONES” who have been awakened by the Most High GOD!
“Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
“And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,
“And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD.” Ezekiel 37:12 - 14
How then can we take the PRAISE, GLORY, and REVERENCE due Our GOD for SAVING and DELIVERING us out of the hands of our enemies and give it to a Messiah? Let’s not misdirect the Praises of the ONE that deserves ALL the adoration – every minute of the day!
“Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwelling places, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.
“And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.
“My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people.” Ezekiel 37:23,24,27
It is in my heart to EXALT and MAGNIFY the ONE GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. I can speak for HIS Merciful Kindness and for what all HE has done for me, but I know nothing of a Messiah or anything that he has done for My People, Israel. I can also speak to the fact that just as GOD raised the spirits of Ezra, Nehemiah and others to return to the Holy Land, so also will HE do for all Israelites scattered abroad, but only IF WE MAKE HIM OUR FOCUS AND RETURN TO HIS LAW.
Therefore, KNOW GOD, learn HIS Ways, and follow them for a more prosperous lifestyle and for a return to our heritage. And know, too, that this GOD of Israel loves us, otherwise HE would have completely destroyed us a long time ago for our sins against HIM and would have chosen for HIMSELF another people.
TAKE BACK YOUR UNIVERSE, LORD GOD OF ISRAEL!

Servant of the Most High GOD of Israel for HIS Holy Name’s Sake!
A PORTION OF A PSALM OF KING DAVID, THE FATHER OF SOLOMON:
“ Blessed be the LORD, because he hath heard the voice of my supplications.
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.
The LORD is their strength, and he is the saving strength of his anointed.
Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance: feed them also, and lift them up for ever. ” Psalm 28:6 – 8
A PORTION OF KING SOLOMON’S PRAYER TO THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL:
“HEAR THOU IN HEAVEN THY DWELLING PLACE, and do according to all that the stranger calleth to thee for: that all people of the earth may know thy name, to fear thee, as do thy people Israel; and that they may know that this house, which I have builded, is called by thy name.
If thy people go out to battle against their enemy, whithersoever thou shalt send them, and shall pray unto the LORD toward the city which thou hast chosen, and toward the house that I have built for thy name: Then hear thou in heaven their prayer and their supplication, and maintain their cause. If they sin against thee, (for there is no man that sinneth not,) and thou be angry with them, and deliver them to the enemy, so that they carry them away captives unto the land of the enemy, far or near;
Yet if they shall bethink themselves in the land whither they were carried captives, and repent, and make supplication unto thee in the land of them that carried them captives, saying, We have sinned, and have done perversely, we have committed wickedness; And so return unto thee with all their heart, and with all their soul, in the land of their enemies, which led them away captive, and pray unto thee toward their land, which thou gavest unto their fathers, the city which thou hast chosen, and the house which I have built for thy name: Then hear thou their prayer and their supplication in heaven thy dwelling place, and maintain their cause, And forgive thy people that have sinned against thee, and all their transgressions wherein they have transgressed against thee, and give them compassion before them who carried them captive, that they may have compassion on them:
For they be thy people, and thine inheritance, which thou broughtest forth out of Egypt, from the midst of the furnace of iron: That thine eyes may be open unto the supplication of thy servant, and unto the supplication of thy people Israel, to hearken unto them in all that they call for unto thee. For thou didst separate them from among all the people of the earth, to be thine inheritance, as thou spakest by the hand of Moses thy servant, when thou broughtest our fathers out of Egypt, O Lord GOD.” I Kings 8:43 - 53
HALLELUYAH, HALLELUYAH, HALLELUYAH!
