in response to reader comment: Comments To Dr. Pipe's Comments To "The Pope Got It Right"

orange yonason said: "I've said this before. I can't speak for Islam or Christianity, but there is no precedent for change in the Torah. What we got at Sinai is what we have today; and the Prophets did not add to it, they merely elaborated on it. Nothing has changed, nor can it. And the further back we go, the more authoritative are the statements of the Rabbis of the time."

As authentic and reliable the Torah, the Prophets and the New Testament are, of what effect and power are they in the earth if those mortals who presume to teach them do not submit to God's Spirit as their teacher?Neither do they point the sheep to the Spirit of God as their teacher, but pass on nothing more than vanities, their own mortal intellecutal opinions and interpetations.

Truth is, Judaism and the 'visible' church have a history of apostasy going all the way back to the first centuries following their establishments.

What neither the Hebrew nor the Christian have grasped is that Y'weh has not given any of us permission to 'interpret' His Word because His requirement and provision is for us to submit to His Holy Spirit as the Teacher of His Word. The problem with Judaism and Christianity is that they are as much carnal flesh, wherein the mortal 'SELF' rules the will and life and 'interprets' Scripture, as the Babylonian Harlot, and are in fact a part of this Harlot.

Authentically, the Scripture says: "And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, MY PEOPLE, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues." (Revelation 18: 4)

Evidence in both the visible church and Judaism, not to mention the world as a whole, reveals that few if any who claim to follw the Y'weh of Scripture have heard a thing the Lord has been saying to 'His people' about our own wretched carnal condition and our 'oneness' with the satanic world economic, political and religious system, to which God has given the name "Babylonian Harlot", a satanic bride to mimic both Israel and the bride of Christ. We cannot be distinguished from the Harlot because we are in her belly.

Most repugnant is the reality that it is 'the people of God' who have emasculated Him and His Word in the sight of the world. Is it any wonder that we have been so useless to the Lord and so hated by the world? Or that satan's kingdom has been advanced while the kingdom of God remains hidden in the hearts of 'His people', buried under the proud and obnoxious 'SELF'?

There is no way to 'interpret' this Scripture which says very clearly what the solution is to the wickedness devouring the Lord's creation: "If MY PEOPLE, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." (2 Chronicles 7:14)

Neither the Hebrew nor the visible church have comprehended or appreciated on any truly spiritual level the awesome honour and responsibility Y'weh has bestowed upon us to literally manifest His kingdom here on earth, first in our own hearts, souls and lives and outwardly to and in the whole earth. What we have done instead, is identical with the assimilation of the Hebrews in Egypt. We have imitated and been assimilated into the satanic world system. The world got into us and we went into it to create a vile oneness with the enemy of God. Both the Hebrew and the church have repeated the sin of Adam and Eve against the Most High, and we are even less sensitive to the conviction of our sin than they were of theirs.

We are running out of time. Rather than arguing over vanities, both the Hebrew and the Christian ought to lay themselves prostrate, emptied of 'SELF', before the LORD and refuse to think a thought or speak a word unless and until it is Y'weh Who gives the thought or the Word. Until we take this posture with Him, we have no right calling Him "Lord, Lord." because we do not KNOW HIM.

The hypocrite is even more contemptible than the 'sinner'. No wonder then the world of sinners looks down on us with such hatred and contempt. We have made ourselves their 'inferiors' by our sin of hypocrisy.

Repentance is in order in Judaism, the church and in the world of sinners. But the Hebrew and the Christian are supposed to lead the way by example for the rest of the world. At the very least, while we are engaged in genuine repentance, there won't be any vain arguments going on amongst us, and the Lord will have reason to hear our prayers.

Adonai Elohenu, Adonai Echad!

Y'shua ha Mashiach h'ya Adonai!
