The House of Yahweh


 
The Prophetic Word magazine - 7-2012    

  


My Dear Friends,

  Sorceries and witchcraft are practiced mostly by Catholics and Christians, but it's even more widespread than that. All religions today, except The House of Yahweh located in Abilene, Texas, are involved in sorceries and witchcraft in many ways.

  The one thing that sets The House of Yahweh apart from all other sects, cults, churches, mosques, temples, etc. is shown by the Inspired Writings of the Prophets, the twelve Disciples and the Savior. Although few people read their bibles and even fewer believe them, the Message is very clear about who belongs to Yahweh and who belongs to Satan.

  Satan is the deceiver and leader of witches. Satan deceives, so those who serve and belong to her, for the most part, do not realize that they are actually worshipping Satan; nor do they know that they are practicing sorcery and witchcraft. Plus Prophecies show they will not repent, yet these practices are causing hatred, confusion, and wars.

  You need to study this information thoroughly. Most of the world's population are not aware that they are practicing witchcraft, nor will the religions of the world tell them so, admit or repent of these evil services to Satan.


The Manifestation Of The Children Of Yahweh And The Children Of Satan
The Apostle Yahchanan was inspired to write for us the following concerning the children of Yahweh and the deception of those who rebel against Yahweh's Laws; starting with sin, which is the breaking or iniquitizing (doing away with) of Yahweh's Perfect Laws of Righteousness. Notice closely now, because Yahchanan gives here the standardization for all times that manifests, sets apart and plainly shows, the difference in Yahweh's Children from those of Satan the devil.

.I Yahchanan 3:4, 7-8, 10—
4 Whoever commits sin, transgresses also the Laws; for sin is the transgression of the Laws.
7 Little children, let no man deceive you; he who practices Righteousness is Righteous, just as He is Righteous.
8 He who commits sin is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of Yahweh was manifested; that He might destroy the works of the devil.
10 In this the Children of Yahweh and the children of the devil are manifest. Whoever does not practice Righteousness is not of Yahweh, and he does not love his neighbor!

Verse 4 establishes what sin is and how you become a sinner. Verse 7 speaks of deception concerning the keeping or not keeping Yahweh's Laws of Righteousness. Verse 8 establishes to whom you belong if you practice sin, the breaking of Yahweh's Laws.


Satan is shown to be the great deceiver.

.Revelation 12:9—
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the devil, and Satan, who deceives the whole world. She was cast out into the earth, and her angels were cast out with her.

This deception, being lies, is designed to get people to sin; that is, to break or simply ignore Yahweh's Laws of Righteousness, to believe Satan, or her religions, instead of the Inspired Writings of Yahweh's Prophets. Notice the lie she told Eve.

.Genesis 3:1-7—
1 Now the serpent was more subtle and crafty than any beast of the field which Yahweh had made. And she said to the woman; Has Yahweh indeed said: You shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
2 And the woman said to the serpent; We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden;
3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, Yahweh has said: You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, or you will die.
4 And the serpent said to the woman; You will not surely die.
5 For He knows that in the day you eat of it, your eyes will be opened, and you will be as Gods (elohim), knowing Righteousness and evil.
6 So when the woman saw that the tree was desirable for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate.
7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized that they had sinned; they had violated Yahweh's Laws. Because they had not kept Yahweh's Laws, they were afraid.

Compare:

.I Yahchanan 2:4—
He who says: I know Him, but does not keep His Laws, is a liar, and the Truth is not in him.

But Satan uses men to do her teaching, as Yahchanan shows in I Yahchanan 3:7, let no man deceive you. The Savior spoke of this also.

.Yahchanan 8:44—
You are of your teacher who is Satan the Devil, and whatever she who is your teacher desires, you will do. She was a murderer from the beginning, and remained not in the Truth, because there is no Truth in her. Therefore, when you speak your falsehoods, you speak her words, because she is a liar, and the teacher of all lies!

Satan's deceptive teaching prevalent among all religions today, except The House of Yahweh, is that the Pharisees, Sadducees and Essenes kept and taught Yahweh's Laws but the Savior and Apostles taught against Yahweh's Laws. This is yet another lie in order to deceive. The Pharisees, Sadducees and Essenes did not keep Yahweh's Laws; nor did Yahshua and His twelve Disciples teach that we should practice breaking Yahweh's Laws.

Read it for yourself in your bible. If Yahshua had broken Yahweh's Laws, He would have been a sinner Himself, and would not have been able to pay for our sins with the sacrifice of Himself. Notice what the Savior Yahshua Messiah really taught in your own bible.

.Yahchanan 7:19—
Were not the Laws given to you through Mosheh? And yet none of you keep the Laws! Why do you seek to kill Me?

The Savior also said, to enter into Life, you must keep the Laws of Yahweh.

.Mattithyah 19:17—
But He said to him: Why do you question Me about Righteousness? There is only One Who is the Standard of Perfection, and He is Yahweh; so if you would enter into Life, keep the Laws of Yahweh.

Search for yourself, there was never a different way to Life Eternal outside of practicing Yahweh's Laws of Righteousness.

.Yahchanan 8:31-34—
31 Then Yahshua said to those Yahdaim who believed on Him: If you continue in My Doctrine, then you are truly My Disciples;
32 And you will know the Truth, and the Truth will make you free.
33 They answered Him; We are Abraham's descendants, and were never in bondage to any man. What do You mean by saying: You will be made free?
34 Yahshua answered them: Truly, truly, I say to you: Whoever commits sin is the servant of sin.

Practice sin and you belong to Satan until, and unless, you repent and become converted.

.Acts 3:19—
Repent therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out; that times of refreshing may come from the Presence of Yahweh.

Sin?

.I Yahchanan 3:4, 7-8—
4 Whoever commits sin, transgresses also the Laws; for sin is the transgression of the Laws.
7 Little children, let no man deceive you; he who practices Righteousness is Righteous, just as He is Righteous.
8 He who commits sin is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of Yahweh was manifested; that He might destroy the works of the devil.

.Romans 6:16—
Do you not know that to whom you yield yourselves as servants to obey, his servants you are whom you obey—whether of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to Righteousness?

Satan cannot give life. Only Yahweh can give life.

.Hebrews 10:21-27—
21 And having a High Priest over The House of Yahweh:
22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of the Faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.
23 Let us hold fast the confession of the Faith without wavering; not bending, not giving way, for He Who promised is faithful!
24 And let us consider one another, how we may urge one another on toward love and Righteous works;
25 Not forsaking the gathering of ourselves together, as the manner of some is, but exhorting one another; and so much the more as you see the day approaching.
26 For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the Truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins,
27 But a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries.

.Revelation 22:12-16—
12 And behold, I come quickly, and My Reward is with Me, to give every man according as his work will be.
13 I am the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.
14 Blessed are those who keep His Laws, that they may have right to the Tree of Life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
15 For outside are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and worshipers of Gods (elohim) and everyone who professes to love, yet practices breaking the Laws.
16 I, Yahshua, have sent My Messenger to testify to you these things in the congregations of The House of Yahweh. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the Bright and Morning Star.

Practicing sin along with the religions that teach you to break Yahweh's Laws only brings the reward of death. You need to read again:

.Hebrews 10:26—
For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the Truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins,

Now, notice further Yahshua's Instruction to the way of Life. The way to Life is set.

.Mattithyah 7:13-14—
13 Enter in through the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many are those who go that way.
14 Because straight is the gate, and narrow is the way which leads to life, and few there are who find it.

The way to Life cannot be changed.

.Revelation 22:18-20—
18 For I testify to everyone who hears the Words of the prophecy of this Book: If any man will add to these things, it will come to pass that he will add to himself the plagues that are written in this Book:
19 And if any man will take away from the words of the Book of this prophecy, it will come to pass that he will take away his part out of The Book of Life, and out of Yahweh Shammah, and from the things which are written in this Book.
20 He Who testifies these things, says: Surely I come quickly! HalleluYahweh! May this be so! Come, Yahshua Messiah.

You have just read the teachings of the Laws of Yahweh by the Savior, Yahshua Messiah, High Priest over The House of Yahweh and the teachings of His twelve Disciples. They also practiced keeping those Laws.

In these books, you see from the very beginning that rebellion spread throughout the whole earth. The Prophecies show that outside of the Work of Yahweh, the whole world would be deceived.

.Revelation 12:9—
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the devil, and Satan, who deceives the whole world. She was cast out into the earth, and her angels were cast out with her.

And in these Last Days:

.Mattithyah 24:11-12, 24-25—
11 And many false prophets will rise, and will deceive the many.
12 And because iniquity will abound, the love of the many will grow cold.
24 For there will arise false messiahs and false prophets who will show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they would deceive the very elect.
25 Behold, I have warned you beforehand!


Yahweh said that in the Last Days He would establish His House once again and His House would teach His Laws to all nations, turning them from sin, hatred, fighting and war. Notice:

.Micahyah 3:1-2, 5-6, 9-12—
1 Then I said; Hear now, O heads of Yaaqob, you rulers of the house of Israyl! Is it not for you to know justice?
2 You who hate Righteousness and love evil; who strip off the skin from My People, and the meat from their bones;
5 This is what Yahweh says concerning the prophets who cause My People to err; go astray; who proclaim: Peace! to those who give them something to chew on; who prepare war against those who put nothing in their mouths—
6 Night will come over you, and you will not have a vision; darkness will cover you, without divination! The sun will go down for these prophets, and the day will be dark for them.
9 Hear now, O heads of the house of Yaaqob, you rulers of the house of Israyl, who abhor justice and pervert all equity,
10 Who build up Zion with blood, and Yerusalem with iniquity:
11 Her heads judge for reward and her priests teach; give instruction in the Laws, for pay, and her prophets divine for money. Yet they lean upon Yahweh, and say; Is not Yahweh among us? No evil can come upon us!
12 Therefore, because of you, Zion will be plowed like a field, Yerusalem will become heaps of rubble, and the mountain of The House of Yahweh like the high places of a forest.

The rulers of Israyl and Yerusalem that Micahyah prophesied of were as they are today and as they were in the days of Noah. There is no difference in the religions today and the governments they form; they rule by force and violence. Study the following Scriptures with that in mind.

.Mattithyah 24:37—
But just as the days of Noah were, so will also be the coming of the Son of Man.

.Genesis 6:11-13—
11 The earth also was corrupt before Yahweh, and the earth was lawless, filled with violence.
12 So Yahweh looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all mankind had corrupted their way on the earth.
13 And Yahweh said to Noah: The end of all mankind has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and they; mankind, have corrupted themselves with the earth.

.Yahchanan Mark 10:42-45—
42 But Yahshua called them to Him, and said to them: You know that those who are recognized as rulers over the unbelievers exercise rulership over them, and those who are greater still exercise authority over them.
43 But this must not be so among you. For whoever will be greatest among you, will be your minister—your servant;
44 And whoever of you will be the first, will be slave for all.
45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve; and to give His life as a ransom for many.

Today's religions in America and throughout the world, especially Catholics and Protestants, teach the multitudes that the religions that were in Yerusalem and Israyl lived by Yahweh's Laws, and indicate that doing so made them evil. But as you can see by the writings of the Prophet of Yahweh, Micahyah, they were in no way living by the Righteous Laws of the Creator.

The religions today teach that Yahshua Messiah and His twelve Disciples did away with the Laws of Yahweh. This is another lie inspired by Satan. To do away with Yahweh's Laws is sin. It's referred to as iniquity. And those who practice iniquity are disqualified from entering Yahweh's Kingdom.

.Mattithyah 7:21-23—
21 Not everyone who says to Me; Teacher! Teacher! will enter into the Kingdom of Yahweh, but only he who does the will of My Father Who is in heaven.
22 Many will say to Me in that day; Teacher! Teacher! Have we not prophesied in Your Name, and cast out demons in Your Name, and in Your Name performed many wonderful works?
23 But then I will declare to them; I never knew you. Get away from Me, you who practice iniquity.

.Revelation 22:12-14—
12 And behold, I come quickly, and My Reward is with Me, to give every man according as his work will be.
13 I am the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.
14 Blessed are those who keep His Laws, that they may have right to the Tree of Life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

In spite of everything Yahshua taught and everything the twelve Disciples wrote, the religions still teach that the Savior said just go ahead and sin and I will be Righteousness for you and still get you into heaven. These are lies of Satan and her witches. Don't let them continue to deceive you.

.I Yahchanan 3:4, 7-8—
4 Whoever commits sin, transgresses also the Laws; for sin is the transgression of the Laws.
7 Little children, let no man deceive you; he who practices Righteousness is Righteous, just as He is Righteous.
8 He who commits sin is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of Yahweh was manifested; that He might destroy the works of the devil.


You just read what Micahyah, the Prophet of Yahweh, said in Micahyah 3 concerning the evil, violent men
who ruled Yerusalem, Israyl, Babylon and Rome.

.Micahyah 3:9-10—
9 Hear now, O heads of the house of Yaaqob, you rulers of the house of Israyl, who abhor justice and pervert all equity,
10 Who build up Zion with blood, and Yerusalem with iniquity:

Now notice:

.Micahyah 4:1—
But in the Last Days it will come to pass that the mountain; promotion, of The House of Yahweh will be established in the chief of the nations. It will be raised above all congregations; and all peoples will eventually flow to it.

Yahweh's Plan is to finish His Work by calling a remnant, in these Last Days, of the sons of man. This Last Days' Work is prophesied to be called by the same name that Yahweh's Works were always known—The House of Yahweh. It's the seventh and finishing Work of Yahweh that was established by two brothers called Witnesses. Write, call, or email us for more information. This last Work is spoken of by all of the Prophets and Apostles.

The Savior said, and there is Eternal Life in believing Him, that all are fools if they do not believe all that the Prophets have spoken (Luke 24:25).

.Micahyah 3:12—
Therefore, because of you, Zion will be plowed like a field, Yerusalem will become heaps of rubble, and the mountain of The House of Yahweh like the high places of a forest.

This Prophecy came to pass around 70 C.E. The Pharisees, Sadducees and Essenes who still ruled Yerusalem and Israyl by force had their true headquarters in Babylon and Rome. They gave orders to their roman general Titus to destroy the temple, which was once called The House of Yahweh, and to destroy a large part of Yerusalem then transport the temple artifacts to Rome and plow Mt. Zion like a field. Notice:

.Micahyah 3:12—
Therefore, because of you, Zion will be plowed like a field, Yerusalem will become heaps of rubble, and the mountain of The House of Yahweh like the high places of a forest.

History shows that Prophecy was fulfilled around 70 C.E. The Pharisees, Sadducees, and Essenes changed their name to Catholic meaning universal, as their writers took delight in publishing, the `holy' Roman Catholic church and its army now ruled the whole world. So indeed their rebellion, seen so well in the Disciples' writings, with their most powerful roman (roving) army became the universal (Catholic) rulers of the whole world.


Their Work Was Prophesied By Yahweh's Prophets

Yahweh's Prophet Daniyl was inspired to write that this roman em-pire, created by the Pharisees, Sadducees and Essenes, would fight against Yahweh's Laws and that the Saints would be given into their hands until the Last Days (Daniyl 7:25).

To this Prophecy they deceive, commit witchcraft again by saying that the popes, who fight against Yahweh and His Saints, call themselves the saints, while they persecuted and killed the True Saints of Yahweh, those who keep the Commandments.

.Revelation 12:17—
And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went to make war with those who forsook her seed; her seed being those who keep the Laws of Yahweh, and have the Testimony of Yahshua Messiah.

.Revelation 14:12—
In this manner are the Saints purified—by keeping the Laws of Yahweh, in conformity with the Faith, as Yahshua Messiah.

.Revelation 22:14—
Blessed are those who keep His Laws, that they may have right to the Tree of Life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

Catholics and Protestants do not keep Yahweh's Commandments, but they claim to be saints, which is deception and witchcraft.

Yahweh shows that He allowed rebellious mankind to go their own way to prove to them, and prophesy to them, what end they would bring upon themselves. Notice the Prophecy of what they are bringing upon themselves, these religions that change the Laws of Yahweh.

.Isayah 24:1-6—
1 Before Yahweh's very Eyes, the earth is made empty and it is made waste; the face of it is perverted and its inhabitants scattered abroad;
2 And it will be: as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his owner; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with him who takes usury, so with him who gives usury to him:
3 The land will be utterly emptied and utterly plundered, for it has come to pass that this Judgment has been pronounced.
4 The earth mourns and fades away, the world mourns and fades away, and the haughty people of the earth languish.
5 The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants of it, because they have transgressed the Laws, changed the Ordinance, and broken the Everlasting Covenant.
6 Because of this, the curse has devoured the earth, and they who dwell therein are desolate; therefore, the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.

Under the rulership of their teacher, notice:

.Isayah 14:12-17, 21, 24, 29—
12 How you have fallen from heaven, O Hillel; Lucifer, Aphrodite, Venus, child of the light! How you are cut down to the ground, you who weakened the nations!
13 For you have said in your heart; I will ascend above the heavens; I will raise my throne above the stars of Yahweh. I will sit in the highest place on the holy mountain of the congregation.
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High.
15 Yet you will be brought down to sheol; the grave, to the sides of the pit.
16 Those who see you will stare at you, and they will talk about you, saying; Is this the one; the adversary, who shook the earth, and made kingdoms tremble?
17 Is this the one who made the world like a wilderness, who overthrew the cities in it, and who would not let her captives go free?
21 Prepare slaughter for her children, because of the iniquity of their fathers; so that they may not rise, possess the earth, and fill the face of the world with cities.
24 Yahweh our Father has vowed, saying: Just as surely as I have planned, so will it come to pass; just as surely as I have purposed, so will it stand:
29 Do not rejoice, all you of Philistia, because the rod of him who struck you has broken; for out of the serpent's root will come forth an adder, and his offspring will be a fiery flying serpent.

Verse 17 shows that Satan is the one leading or deceiving the whole world into thinking they can rule by force of arms and bring peace. Now, they plan on killing masses hoping "to come out on top," as Malachi Martin, the Catholic writer revealed in his book, The Keys of this Blood.

That is exactly the meaning of the word spoken by Yahshua Messiah in Yahchanan Mark 10:42. Below is a copy of the word translated rule from the Greek dictionary of Strong's Exhaustive Concordance.


Before the prophesied event (the burning) in Isayah 24 takes place, what was prophesied in Micahyah 3 was to take place.

.Micahyah 3:9-12—
9 Hear now, O heads of the house of Yaaqob, you rulers of the house of Israyl, who abhor justice and pervert all equity,
10 Who build up Zion with blood, and Yerusalem with iniquity:
11 Her heads judge for reward and her priests teach; give instruction in the Law, for pay, and her prophets divine for money. Yet they lean upon Yahweh, and say; Is not Yahweh among us? No evil can come upon us!
12 Therefore, because of you, Zion will be plowed like a field, Yerusalem will become heaps of rubble, and the mountain of The House of Yahweh like the high places of a forest.

This Prophecy was fulfilled around 70 C.E. when the Pharisees, Sadducees and Essenes sent their Roman general Titus to destroy the temple and to move the artifacts to Rome. After that, they changed their name to Catholic, meaning universal, and claimed rulership of the whole world as the `holy' Roman empire, led by the Roman Catholic church. But not all would conform, so the crusades, murders, and witchcraft (sorceries) continued. Now, nuclear wars are planned to accomplish what their roman army could not.


.Micahyah 4:2—
And many people will go and say; Come, and let us go up to the mountain; uplifting, of Yahweh, and to the House of the Father of Yaaqob, and He will teach us of His Ways, and we will walk in His Paths. Because the Laws will depart from Zion, and the Word of Yahweh from Yerusalem.

The Laws will depart from Mt. Zion and Yerusalem. That does not mean that Yahweh's Laws would be destroyed. It means they would not be taught until the next prophesied Work of Yahweh, which would be that of the Two Witnesses. Call, write or email us for the exciting Prophecies concerning the Two Witnesses and their Work. That Work is now taking Yahweh's Laws to all nations.

The temple was destroyed. The roving soldiers started hunting The House of Yahweh members, who kept any part of Yahweh's Laws, to kill and imprison them. They killed the twelve Disciples who taught Yahweh's Laws. They also killed their followers.

They are still making war against all who will not worship Mary the queen of heaven, as stated by Malachi Martin, a Catholic writer who authored the book, The Keys of this Blood. Malachi Martin showed that the Catholic church traces its roots back to the early twelve tribes and proclaims to be the priesthood given to Aaron, the brother of Mosheh.

They are Abraham's descendants who rebelled against Yahweh's Laws and made an open show of their rebellion after the Exodus, when they came to Samuyl, as is shown in:

.I Samuyl 8:4-8—
4 Then all the elders of Israyl gathered together and approached Samuyl when he was at Ramah,
5 Saying to him; You are old, and your sons do not walk in your ways. Appoint us a king to judge us; just like all the other nations.
6 But these things displeased Samuyl, especially when they said; Give us a king to judge us. Then Samuyl prayed to Yahweh.
7 Yahweh answered Samuyl, and said: Listen to all the words the people speak to you, for they have not rejected you; they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them.
8 Just as they have done to Me from the day I brought them out of Egypt, to this very day, they are now doing to you—they are forsaking Me in order to serve God(s); Elohim!

They ruled the temple and Yerusalem by force in the days of the Prophets of Yahweh, and persecuted the Prophets of Yahweh, including the Great Prophet Micahyah, 750 to 710 B.C.E.

.Micahyah 3:1-2—
1 Then I said; Hear now, O heads of Yaaqob, you rulers of the house of Israyl! Is it not for you to know justice?—
2 You who hate Righteousness and love evil; who strip off the skin from My People, and the meat from their bones;

Yahweh allowed them to destroy the temple and Yerusalem and to move the artifacts of the temple and all of its wealth to Rome, and prophesied that in the Last Days they would have the capability to destroy all life.


After They Build Their Weapons Of Destruction And They Are Warned Of What The End Result Of Their Rebellion Will Bring

Yahweh actually prophesied in the days of Mosheh that the rebellious twelve tribes, those who hated Yahweh's Laws, would invent and use weapons of mass destruction that would burn the earth and darken the sun. And in that time period, Yahweh would once again establish His House, and His House would bring forth a last warning to all the world, in the last generation, then the end of their beastly system would come. They would destroy themselves.

.Mattithyah 24:14—
And this Message of the Kingdom will be preached to all the world by the One who bears witness to all nations; and then The End will come.


In This Time Period Called The End Of The Ages

Notice Micahyah first.

.Micahyah 4:1-3—
1 But in the Last Days it will come to pass that the mountain; promotion, of The House of Yahweh will be established in the chief of the nations. It will be raised above all congregations; and all peoples will eventually flow to it.
2 And many people will go and say; Come, and let us go up to the mountain; uplifting, of Yahweh, and to the House of the Father of Yaaqob, and He will teach us of His Ways, and we will walk in His Paths. Because the Laws will depart from Zion, and the Word of Yahweh from Yerusalem.
3 And He will judge between many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they will beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks. Nation will not lift up a sword against nation, nor will they learn war anymore.

In verse 3, please notice that He (Yahweh) will teach us His Ways. Yahweh established His House, in the chief of the nations (verse 1) for the purpose of teaching us His Ways, because the Laws would depart from Yerusalem and Israyl (verse 2).

The Savior explained this also in:

.Mattithyah 21:43—
Therefore I say to you: The Kingdom of Yahweh will be taken from you, and given to a people of the same habit, but from a foreign land; and they will bring forth the fruits of it.

.Yahchanan 4:21—
Yahshua said to her: Woman, believe Me: The hour comes when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain, nor in Yerusalem.

The warning is going out now from the chief of the nations to all the world. The Teaching of Yahweh's Laws of Righteousness, that will eventually stop all wars, is also going out; as well as the offer from Yahweh, to those who will repent of sin and be converted by Yahweh's Laws, to receive forgiveness and an everlasting position in the Greatest Kingdom, the Kingdom of Yahweh.

.Acts 3:19-21—
19 Repent therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out; that times of refreshing may come from the Presence of Yahweh.
20 And that He may send Yahshua, the Messiah Who was preached to you,
21 Whom the heaven must retain until the time of the restoration of all things, about which Yahweh spoke by the mouths of His Holy Prophets since the world began.

Verse 19—repent? Compare:

.I Yahchanan 3:4, 7-8—
4 Whoever commits sin, transgresses also the Laws; for sin is the transgression of the Laws.
7 Little children, let no man deceive you; he who practices Righteousness is Righteous, just as He is Righteous.
8 He who commits sin is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of Yahweh was manifested; that He might destroy the works of the devil.

.Mattithyah 9:13—
But go and learn what this means: I desire mercy and not sacrifice. For I have not come to call the Righteous, but sinners to repentance.

.Luke 13:1-5—
1 At that time there were some present who told Him about the Galileans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.
2 But Yahshua, rebuking, said to them: Do you think that these Galileans were sinners above every other Galilean, because they suffered such things?
3 I tell you, No! But unless you repent you will all likewise perish!
4 Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them, do you think that they were sinners above every man who lived in Yerusalem?
5 I tell you, No! But unless you repent, you will all likewise perish!

We see in verse 1 that Pilate, and all other roman officials, received orders from the Pharisees, Sadducees and Essenes.

The Galileans were the converts of Yahshua, for Galilee was where He worked most. Go back to:

.Luke 4:14-16—
14 Then Yahshua returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and reports went out about Him throughout all the surrounding region.
15 And He taught in their synagogues, being honored and held in great esteem by all.
16 Then He went to Nazareth where He had been brought up; and, as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath Day, and He stood up in order to read.

Now back to Luke 13. Pilate's character is typical of all the violent men who had taken the Kingdom of Yahweh, set up by King Solomon in Yerusalem. These violent men were priests, kings, governors, judges, police—the whole municipal system—who had taken the temple and Yerusalem by force. Notice:

Matthew 11:12, KJV—
And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

These were not men who kept Yahweh's Laws of Righteousness, nor did they follow Yahweh's Prophets. They, as the religions today, hated those who kept or taught Yahweh's' Laws. They tried continually to kill Yahshua.

.Yahchanan 8:40—
But now you seek to kill Me, a Man Who has told you the Truth which I have heard from Yahweh. Abraham did not do this.

.Luke 13:34-35—
34 O Yerusalem! Yerusalem, the city that murders the Prophets, and stones those who are sent to you! How often I would have gathered your children together, as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, but you were not willing!
35 Behold! Your house is left to you desolate! So truly I say to you; You will not see Me, until the time comes when you say: Blessed is He Who comes in the Name of Yahweh!


What Was Their Gripe?

Their gripe was the same as today, they want to preach and practice sin. They do not want anyone to correct them, nor expose their sins. Notice:

.Yahchanan 15:18-23—
18 If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.
19 If you were of the world, the world would have loved its own. But because you are not part of the world, for I have chosen you out of the world, for this reason the world hates you.
20 Remember the word that I said to you: A servant is not greater than his ruler. If they have persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they have kept My Word, they will keep yours also.
21 But all these things they will do to you because of My Name—for they do not know Him Who sent Me.
22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have had their sins revealed; but now they have no cloak, covering for, their sins.
23 He who hates Me, also hates My Father.

Yet, the Christian preachers and popes want us to believe that these people, who hated Yahweh, Yahshua, and the twelve Disciples for showing them their sins, kept Yahweh's Laws and that it was the Savior and the twelve Disciples who actually practiced sin. It is as though they never, ever read their bibles.

They murdered Yahchanan and they murdered the Savior, Yahshua Messiah, because those two men told them the Truth. They hate anyone today who will tell them the Truth.




In These Last Days, Yahweh Will Establish His House And Take The Truth To All Nations

The Truth, as was taught by Yahshua Messiah when He did His Prophesied Work, teaching that rebellion is bringing the world to death and destruction. There is no love left among the nations or peoples. There exist only competition, frustration, hatred, fighting, divorce, and war. These evils all come from the religions that lead the people.

.Mattithyah 24:11-12—
11 And many false prophets will rise, and will deceive the many.
12 And because iniquity will abound, the love of the many will grow cold.

Iniquity is doing away with or changing Yahweh's Laws that guide one away from sickness, defilement, disease, confusion, fighting and war. The words that describe it fully are sorceries and witchcraft. Notice, iniquity is brought to the world by religious deceivers who teach that the Laws of Yahweh have been done away with.

Even worse, witchcraft and sorcery is this: they claim the Savior and Apostles did away with Yahweh's Laws, when it is they. They are still doing away with Yahweh's Laws today. The Catholic church and her daughters (Revelation 17:1-5—Protestants and all other Christians) are the direct cause of what is prophesied in:

.Isayah 24:1-6—
1 Before Yahweh's very Eyes, the earth is made empty and it is made waste; the face of it is perverted and its inhabitants scattered abroad;
2 And it will be: as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his owner; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with him who takes usury, so with him who gives usury to him:
3 The land will be utterly emptied and utterly plundered, for it has come to pass that this Judgment has been pronounced.
4 The earth mourns and fades away, the world mourns and fades away, and the haughty people of the earth languish.
5 The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants of it, because they have transgressed the Laws, changed the Ordinance, and broken the Everlasting Covenant.
6 Because of this, the curse has devoured the earth, and they who dwell therein are desolate; therefore, the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.

But in the Last Days:

.Micahyah 4:1-3—
1 But in the Last Days it will come to pass that the mountain; promotion, of The House of Yahweh will be established in the chief of the nations. It will be raised above all congregations; and all peoples will eventually flow to it.
2 And many people will go and say; Come, and let us go up to the mountain; uplifting, of Yahweh, and to the House of the Father of Yaaqob, and He will teach us of His Ways, and we will walk in His Paths. Because the Laws will depart from Zion, and the Word of Yahweh from Yerusalem.
3 And He will judge between many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they will beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks. Nation will not lift up a sword against nation, nor will they learn war anymore.

In verse 1, we see that from the chief of the nations, in these Last Days, the Laws of Yahweh that would have prevented sickness, disease, confusion, hatred, fighting, and war were rejected by the Pharisees, Sadducees, and Essenes, are now going forth from Yahweh's Established House of Yahweh. At the same time, Yahweh's Laws are going forth from His House, sorcery and witchcraft are going forth in full force from the Catholic church and Christianity.

This is admitted by the Catholic church. They can't deny it anyway, it's a historical fact. The Catholic church admits that they changed Yahweh's Laws. Christianity does not want to admit that they are the daughters of the Catholic church, so they hatch even more lies.

Once Again Their Sins Are Revealed

Yahshua Messiah exposed their sins.

.Yahchanan 15:22-23—
22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have had their sins revealed; but now they have no cloak, covering for, their sins.
23 He who hates Me, also hates My Father.

The twelve Disciples exposed their sins.

.I Yahchanan 2:4—
He who says: I know Him, but does not keep His Laws, is a liar, and the Truth is not in him.

.I Yahchanan 3:4, 7-8, 10—
4 Whoever commits sin, transgresses also the Laws; for sin is the transgression of the Laws.
7 Little children, let no man deceive you; he who practices Righteousness is Righteous, just as He is Righteous.
8 He who commits sin is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of Yahweh was manifested; that He might destroy the works of the devil.
10 In this the Children of Yahweh and the children of the devil are manifest. Whoever does not practice Righteousness is not of Yahweh, and he does not love his neighbor!

The House of Yahweh is also bringing Yahweh's Laws, exposing their sins.

The Religions Leading The Nations Will Not Repent

But the Inspired Scriptures show that they will not repent of their sins—their sorcery and witchcraft.

.Revelation 9:20-21—
20 And the rest of the men who were not killed by these plagues, still did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and gods (elohim, teraphim) of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which can neither see, nor hear, nor walk;
21 Neither did they repent of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

Notice what is said in verse 20…the rest of those not killed. Soon nuclear wars will start that will kill a third of man over a fourth part of the earth in and around the great River Euphrates. Those are the first deaths, starting in that fourth part of the earth.

Those left alive, at that time, still will not repent. They will continue with the threats, rule by force, and nuclear wars until four-fifths of the earth's population are wiped out and the sun is darkened. Those left alive when the sun is darkened will then repent and turn to The House of Yahweh and start practicing Yahweh's Laws of Righteousness. This will be a harsh lesson; but it's the only kind of lesson the world will heed.

Yahweh's Plan is to make man in His Own Image and to give them Authority. Authority, not to rule by force but to teach and guide in True Love. Love like that practiced and taught by Yahshua Messiah. We need to read again Yahshua's Words in:

.Yahchanan Mark 10:42-45—
42 But Yahshua called them to Him, and said to them: You know that those who are recognized as rulers over the unbelievers exercise rulership over them, and those who are greater still exercise authority over them.
43 But this must not be so among you. For whoever will be greatest among you, will be your minister—your servant;
44 And whoever of you will be the first, will be slave for all.
45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve; and to give His life as a ransom for many.

Yahshua was the Perfect Example of Yahweh's Great Laws.

.Mattithyah 22:34-40—
34 But when the Pharisees heard that He had silenced the Sadducees, they came together,
35 And one of them, a lawyer; an expert in the Laws of Yahweh, asked Him a question to test Him, saying;
36 Teacher, what is the greatest Commandment in the Laws?
37 Yahshua said to him: You must love Yahweh your Father with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might.
38 This is the first and greatest commandment.
39 And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
40 On these two Commandments hang; depend, all the Laws and the Prophets.

Compare:

.II Yahchanan 1:4-6—
4 I greatly rejoiced that I found some of your children walking in Truth, according to the Laws we have received from the Father.
5 But now I plead with you, lady, not as though I wrote any new Laws to you, but that which we had from the beginning: That we love one another—
6 And this is love: That we walk after His Laws. Those are the Laws, that, as you have heard from the beginning, you should walk in them.

Yahchanan wrote this book around 85 C.E. Yet, he was still teaching that we should practice Yahweh's Laws. That is practicing True Love for Yahweh and True Love for others. Yahweh's Laws show His Image and Likeness. To that Character comes the sons of man.

.Genesis 1:26—
Then Yahweh said: I will make man in My Image, according to My Likeness; they will have rulership over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, over the cattle, and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.

Everything in the Inspired Scriptures show that Yahweh's Laws teach True Love. Yahshua said to love your neighbor as yourself by keeping or practicing Yahweh's Perfect Laws of love.

But carnal man chose to rule by force. Lift yourself up above your neighbor in power by force. Put your neighbor under you and make him surrender to your demands.

In the Kingdom of Yahweh, this will not be so. Read it again.

.Yahchanan Mark 10:42-45—
42 But Yahshua called them to Him, and said to them: You know that those who are recognized as rulers over the unbelievers exercise rulership over them, and those who are greater still exercise authority over them.
43 But this must not be so among you. For whoever will be greatest among you, will be your minister—your servant;
44 And whoever of you will be the first, will be slave for all.
45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve; and to give His life as a ransom for many.

All things can be accomplished with the True Love taught by Yahweh, and practiced by Yahshua, the Prophets, and Apostles. But mankind rebelled, so Yahweh, in order to teach mankind this vital lesson, turned them over to become reprobates.

The Apostle Shaul (Paul) was speaking of the so-called "holy" roman empire when he said the following. Read this carefully, their character and teachings have not changed.

.Romans 1:21-32—
21 Because that, when they knew Yahweh, they did not glorify Him as Father, nor were thankful, but became idolatrous; godworshipers (worshipers of elohim), in their reasoning, and their senseless minds were darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools; simpletons,
23 And exchanged the glory of the uncorruptible Father for images, made to resemble corruptible man, and birds, four-footed beasts, and creeping things.
24 Therefore, Yahweh also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own minds, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who exchanged the Truth of Yahweh for the lie; Lords (baalim), Gods, Goddesses (elohim) and demons, and worshiped and served the creation, rather than the Creator, Who is blessed forever. Praise Yahweh! HalleluYahweh!
26 For this reason Yahweh gave them up to degrading passions: for even their women exchanged the natural use into that which is against nature.
27 And the men did the same thing: leaving the natural use of the woman, they burned in their lusts for one another; men committing shameful acts with men, and suffering in their own bodies the penalty for their error, which is their fitting retribution.
28 And so, since they did not like to retain Yahweh in their knowledge, it came to pass that they were given over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not proper;
29 Causing to arise all unrighteousness, sexual impurity, wickedness, covetous-ness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, and malice. They are gossips,
30 Backbiters; slanderers, haters of Yahweh, despiteful, arrogant, and boastful. They are inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 And without understanding. They are Covenant-breakers, without natural affection, implacable; truce breakers, and unmerciful:
32 Who, knowing the Righteous Judgment of Yahweh, that those who practice such things deserve death, not only continue to do these very things, but also approve of those who practice them.

They will not repent of sin. Notice in verse 24, uncleanness. Compare:

.Isayah 65:4-6—
4 Who assemble and spend the night keeping memorials for the dead, who eat swine's flesh, and the broth of abominable things; unclean foods, is in their vessels,
5 Who say; Stand by yourself! Do not come near me, for I am holier than you! These are a smoke in My Nostrils, a fire that burns all the day.
6 Behold, it is written before Me; I will not keep silence, but will recompense, even recompense into their bosom—

The same is shown in the following Scripture.

.Yeremyah 23:1, 10-11, 14-15—
1 Woe to the pastors; shepherds, who destroy and scatter the sheep of My Pasture! says Yahweh.
10 For the land is full of adulterers; those who turn from following Yahweh to follow the gods (elohim). Because of this curse the land mourns; the pleasant places of the wilderness are dried up. Their conduct is evil, whose might is not right—
11 For both prophet and priest are profane! Yes, even in My own House I have found their wickedness! says Yahweh.
14 I have also seen in the prophets of Yerusalem a horrible thingthey commit adultery and walk in lies; they turn from Yahweh and follow after the gods (elohim)! They also strengthen the hands of evildoers, so that no one turns back from his wickedness. All of them are like Sodom to Me, and her inhabitants are like Gomorrah.
15 Therefore, this is what Father Yahweh says concerning these prophets; Behold, I will feed them with wormwood, and make them drink the water of gall; for from the prophets of Yerusalem profaneness has gone out into all the land.

Notice in the next Scripture that they removed the Name Yahweh and replace it with Lord or the Lord.

.Yeremyah 23:26-27—
26 How long will this be in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies? Yes, they are prophets of the deceit of their own minds;
27 Who devise; plan and scheme, to cause My People to forget My Name through their dreams, which they tell every man to his neighbor, just as their fathers have forgotten My Name for Baal; Lord.

The same group is shown in:

.Revelation 17:1-5—
1 And there came one of the seven malakim who had the seven bowls, and talked with me, saying to me: Come, I will show you the sentence of the great whore that sits upon many waters,
2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication; practiced idolatry: godworship (the worship of elohim), and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
3 So he carried me away in the Spirit into the midst of godworshipers (worshipers of Elohim); and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication.
5 And upon her head was a name written: Mystery Babylon the great, the mother of the harlots and of the abominations of the earth.

This religion lives in a great city that sits on seven hills.

.Revelation 17:18—
And the woman whom you saw, is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.

.Revelation 17:9—
And here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits.

Their teachings and practices are the same as when they called themselves Pharisees, Sadducees and Essenes, and had their deceptive headquarters in Yerusalem, Israyl, with branches in Babylon and Rome. Notice:

.Revelation 17:1-5—
1 And there came one of the seven malakim who had the seven bowls, and talked with me, saying to me: Come, I will show you the sentence of the great whore that sits upon many waters,
2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication; practiced idolatry: godworship (the worship of elohim), and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
3 So he carried me away in the Spirit into the midst of godworshipers (worshipers of elohim); and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication.
5 And upon her head was a name written: Mystery Babylon the great, the mother of the harlots and of the abominations of the earth.


This is the same religion spoken of by the Apostle as having quarters in Rome even before they destroyed the temple in Yerusalem and made Rome their permanent headquarters.

.Romans 1:21—
Because that, when they knew Yahweh, they did not glorify Him as Father, nor were thankful, but became idolatrous; godworshipers (worshipers of elohim), in their reasoning, and their senseless minds were darkened.

Notice, this religion that sits on the seven hills of Rome actually knew Yahweh at one time. That is, they practiced His Laws at one time.

.I Yahchanan 2:4—
He who says: I know Him, but does not keep His Laws, is a liar, and the Truth is not in him.

But they rebelled after the days of Mosheh.

.I Samuyl 8:4-8—
4 Then all the elders of Israyl gathered together and approached Samuyl when he was at Ramah,
5 Saying to him; You are old, and your sons do not walk in your ways. Appoint us a king to judge us; just like all the other nations.
6 But these things displeased Samuyl, especially when they said; Give us a king to judge us. Then Samuyl prayed to Yahweh.
7 Yahweh answered Samuyl, and said: Listen to all the words the people speak to you, for they have not rejected you; they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them.
8 Just as they have done to Me from the day I brought them out of Egypt, to this very day, they are now doing to you__they are forsaking Me in order to serve God(s); Elohim!

.Romans 1:27—
And the men did the same thing: leaving the natural use of the woman, they burned in their lusts for one another; men committing shameful acts with men, and suffering in their own bodies the penalty for their error, which is their fitting retribution.

.Yeremyah 23:14—
…All of them are like Sodom…...

.Romans 1:27—
… men committing shameful acts with men…

.Romans 1:28-29—
28 And so, since they did not like to retain Yahweh in their knowledge, it came to pass that they were given over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not proper;
29 Causing to arise all unrighteousness, sexual impurity, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, and malice. They are gossips,

.Romans 1:24—
Therefore, Yahweh also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own minds, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves:

.Yeremyah 23:15—
…from the prophets of Yerusalem profaneness has gone out into all the world.

This profaneness is sodomy, fornication, and uncleanness.

.Revelation 17:15—
And he said to me: The waters which you saw, where the whore sits, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and languages.

This still holds true today.

.Revelation 17:5—
… mother of the harlots...

She mothered all of Christianity. Christianity has no authority for the traditions they follow, except the Catholic popes.

.Revelation 17:18—
And the woman whom you saw, is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.

.Revelation 17:9—
And here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits.

Again, Compton's Pictured Encyclopedia, 1948, Volume 12, page 144, tells us about the city of seven hills.


They Will Not Repent!

.Revelation 9:20-21—
20 And the rest of the men who were not killed by these plagues, still did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and gods (elohim, teraphim) of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which can neither see, nor hear, nor walk;
21 Neither did they repent of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

Come out!

.Revelation 18:1-5—
1 And after these things I saw another malak come down from heaven, having great authority; and the earth was enlightened with His glory.
2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying: Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of demons, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have grown rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying: Come out of her, My People, so that you do not partake in her sins, and so that you do not receive of her plagues,
5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and Yahweh has remembered her iniquities!

In the Scriptures you just read is the outline of the prophesied world events and the acting nations that are bringing these Prophecies to pass. It's no secret that the Catholic church is against Yahweh's Laws, as written by the Prophets. It's no secret that Satan, the queen of heaven, gives the Catholic church her seat, the seven hills of Rome, and her great authority over the nations. But that authority is soon to end with the emerging of the Kingdom of Yahweh.

Yahweh allowed The House of Yahweh to be destroyed and the Truth was not told for about 2,000 years. But in these Last Days, The House of Yahweh will be protected from Satan and her followers.

Although Yahweh's Judgment is to allow mankind's rebellion to show what rebellion will bring, Yahweh can stop it at anytime; and that He will. Yahweh shows that He will only allow four-fifths of the earth's population to be destroyed in order to convince everyone that what He says is the Truth. This is a great lesson that will forever remain in history for all to see, so rebellion will not be in the renewed world. After this lesson is finished among the rebellious religions that belong to Satan, there will be no need for further proof of what sin brings. Then will come everlasting peace.

.Isayah 2:4—
He will judge among the nations, and will rebuke many people; they will beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks; nation will not lift up sword against nation, neither will they learn war anymore.

The Catholic church, the leader of the kings of the earth, will not repent. It will be caught up in her own destruction and the whole system will be totally destroyed. Unless you want the same sentence, you will need to heed the warning in:

.Revelation 18:1-5—
1 And after these things I saw another malak come down from heaven, having great authority; and the earth was enlightened with His Glory.
2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying: Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of demons, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have grown rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying: Come out of her, My People, so that you do not partake in her sins, and so that you do not receive of her plagues,
5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and Yahweh has remembered her iniquities!

Watch the news. Although efforts are being arranged to block the news of the attacks and wars being waged, if you are alive, you will see a third of man over a fourth part of the earth killed with nuclear war, famine and disease. Yet, they still won't repent of their sorceries, which also means deception and witchcraft.

.Revelation 9:20-21—
20 And the rest of the men who were not killed by these plagues, still did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and gods (elohim, teraphim) of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which can neither see, nor hear, nor walk;
21 Neither did they repent of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.


They Won't Repent

However, you can repent and have your sins wiped out if you will convert to practicing Yahweh's Laws of Righteousness.

.Acts 3:19—
Repent therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out; that times of refreshing may come from the Presence of Yahweh.

.I Yahchanan 3:4, 7-8, 10—
4 Whoever commits sin, transgresses also the Laws; for sin is the transgression of the Laws.
7 Little children, let no man deceive you; he who practices Righteousness is Righteous, just as He is Righteous.
8 He who commits sin is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of Yahweh was manifested; that He might destroy the works of the devil.
10 In this the Children of Yahweh and the children of the devil are manifest. Whoever does not practice Righteousness is not of Yahweh, and he does not love his neighbor!

The word translated sorceries in Revelation 9:21, among other things, means witchcraft.


I hope to hear from you soon. The doors to The House of Prayer (Yahweh) for all people are still open at this writing. Call soon.

May Yahweh bless your understanding.
Love, True Love,
In Yahshua's Name,

Yisrayl Hawkins
Pastor and Overseer of The House of Yahweh




At this time, we are in the Last Days and this Prophecy has truly come to pass. Much of today's society is highly engrossed in pleasing themselves. One of the tools used by today's society to please themselves is drugs.

Reading from The Mind, by Richard M. Restak, M.D., Bantam Books, 1988, pages 105-107, we find the following information about the use of drugs.

Throughout history human beings have been conducting an uncontrolled experiment on the mind. They have used, and often abused, substances capable of acting on the brain to produce pleasure so overwhelming that the mind is wholly concentrated on attaining this pleasure. It becomes the motivating force in their lives - more important than food, companionship... safety, even life itself.
  This drug taking is found worldwide. It exists in every culture. The drugs may be alcohol, which can be distilled from a wide variety of substances; cocaine, whose source is the coca leaf; marijuana, hashish, and related substances derived from cannabis, a hemp plant; and the opiates, from the poppy, which have morphine-like properties, and include opium, morphine, and heroin. Today, in addition to these naturally occurring substances, there are a wide variety of synthetic drugs - among them prescription sedatives, barbiturates, amphetamines, and mood-altering medications such as tranquilizers - whose potential for abuse is also often exploited.
  When we talk about the potential for abuse, we mean that a substance has the capacity to induce dependence in those who use it, whatever their need may be: the intense pleasure these substances arouse, or the blocking out of a reality the user finds frightening, disturbing, or in some other way unendurable. Some authorities make a distinction between psychological and physical dependence. Psychological dependence is a form of obsessive behavior whose objective is the attainment of pleasure or the avoidance of unpleasantness...
  Physical dependence, which technically is termed addiction, occurs when the brain itself becomes biochemically changed because of the continuing consumption of a drug. Tolerance develops, causing the user to need increasing amounts of the drug for it to have its customary effect. Because of these biochemical changes in brain function, an abrupt stopping of the drug causes acute physical and mental symptoms, the withdrawal syndrome.
  But whether or not there are changes in the brain, dependence so persistent and consuming that individuals organize their lives so as to sustain the behavior can properly be called addiction. Dr. Richard Miller, the director of a drug treatment program near Sacramento, California, says, "Of all the drugs and the compulsive behaviors that I have seen in the past twenty-five years, be it cocaine, heroin, alcohol...all have one common thread. That is the covering up, or the masking, or the unwillingness on the part of the human being to confront and be with his or her human feelings.
  Addiction to drugs is the most visible and shattering of all forms because it threatens the fabric of society itself. All too often, the risks - whether the anguish of the withdrawal syndrome or a drug's harmful or even potentially fatal consequences - do not matter to the addict. The drive to secure the drug is overwhelming. Abuse of addicting drugs has become epidemic in recent years, at appalling cost not only to the individuals whose lives (and the lives of those close to them) have been shattered by drugs, but to the civility and very structure of the social order.

The following article, from USA Today magazine, Volume 117, November 1988, page 8, tells us about the cost of drug abuse to both individuals and society as a whole.

 The $110,000,000,000 Problem: Drugs
  America's love affair with illegal drugs is costing a fortune in death, addiction, and lost productivity - and it's getting worse each year. According to Federal statistics, the U.S. population smokes, snorts, inhales, injects, and swallows more than $110,000,000,000 in illegal drugs annually.
  America has the highest level of teenage drug abuse of any industrialized nation in the world. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the average age of the first drug use is 13. One-third of children aged 12 to 17 (6,200,000 children) already have experimented with drugs. Sixteen percent still use marijuana. Twenty percent of high school seniors have tried cocaine or crack, its powerfully addictive derivative. The Weekly Reader reports that nearly one-third of our fourth graders already are being pressured to try alcohol and marijuana.
  In school or out, drugs are definitely big business - bigger, in fact, than the American automotive industry. In 1986, over $1,000,000 in cash and tangible assets (not including drugs) was seized each day by the Drug Enforcement Adminis-tration - more than $373,000,000 per year.
  The financial impact on American business and government is even more staggering. Drug abuse added nearly $1,000,000,000 to the nation's health care bill in 1987. The nation's manufacturing facilities, government services, and other business operations lost more than $60,000,000,000 in productivity in 1987 as employees worked under the influence of illegal drugs. Of all crime in the U.S., 60-70% is drug-related. In California alone, the economic impact of drug abuse on the state's taxpayers is estimated at more than $17,600,000,000 annually. Other states report similar costs.

Millions of people, today and throughout history, have abused drugs and alcohol in an endless search for pleasure. The main reason worldly societies rely on these types of drugs is to escape the harsh realities of this sin-sick world.

The questions that the Called Out Ones of Yahweh must ask are: What does Yahweh say in the Holy Scriptures concerning the use of mind-stuporing drugs? Notice Yahweh's Words to the children of Israyl.

.Leviticus 18:1-5—
1 And Yahweh spoke to Mosheh, saying:
2 Speak to the children of Israyl and say to them; I am Yahweh your Father.
3 After the doings of the land of Egypt where you dwelt, shall you not do; and after the doings of the land of Canaan, where I am bringing you, shall you not do; neither shall you walk in their ordinances.
4 You shall observe and do My judgments, and keep My Ordinances, to walk in them. I am Yahweh.
5 You must therefore keep My Statutes, and My Judgments, which, if a man does, he will live through them. I am Yahweh.

The word ordinances in the previous verse is #2708 in Strong's Hebrew Dictionary, chuqqh and means appointed, custom, or manner.

Yahweh makes it plain to us that we are not to follow the ordinances of any nation or people which are contrary to His Laws. As Yahweh's People, we must not judge our lives by the ways or customs of the world. We must judge our lives according to the Laws of Yahweh just as Yahshua Messiah said in Mattithyah 4:4, if we desire Eternal Life. The Apostle Shaul wrote in Romans 6:23 that the wages of sin is death. Knowing that the wages of sin is death, we must come to a complete understanding of what sin actually is.

What is Sin?

Yahweh inspired Shaul to write in:

.II Timothy 3:16-17—
16 All Scripture that is given through inspiration of Yahweh is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in Righteousness:
17 That the man of Yahweh may become perfect, thoroughly furnished for every Righteous Work.

In effect, Yahweh inspired Shaul to say that He furnishes us with a perfect example of what sin is and what sin is not. So, by studying the Scriptures, we can come to a full understanding of what is Righteous and wrong. Therefore, there will be no doubt about what pleases Yahweh—Whom we worship and obey. Yahweh tells us in:

.Proverbs 14:12—
There is a way which seems right to a man, but the ends thereof are the ways of death.

If we believe the Scriptures, then we can believe, just by reading the previous Scriptures, that we cannot decide for ourselves what is right or what is wrong. We should believe the Scriptures for they are the Words of Life, or death, depending on whether we choose to obey or disobey Yahweh, Who Alone can give life.

Yahweh has given us, through these Scriptures, the Perfect Way of Life. If everyone lives by Yahweh's Way there would be Perfect Peace upon this planet at this very time.

Yahweh has given a Perfect Way which brings hurt to none, but rather Joy and Peace for those who follow in His Way. Yahweh tells us in:

.I Yahchanan 3:4—
Whoever commits sin, transgresses also the Laws; for sin is the transgression of the Laws.

The transgression of Yahweh's Laws—sin—is the thing which brings hurt to you and everyone around you. The transgression of Yahweh's Laws—sin—is what brings eternal death, unless one repents of sin and is forgiven by Yahweh. The transgression of Yahweh's Laws—sin—is what we need to recognize; and we can if we know Yahweh's Scriptures. We are told in:

.Yaaqob 2:10-11—
10 For whoever keeps the whole Law, and yet offends in one point, he is guilty of all.
11 For He Who said: Do not commit adultery, also said: Do not murder. Now if you do not commit adultery, yet you do murder, you have become a transgressor of the Laws.

If we break any one of Yahweh's Laws then we are guilty of having broken them all. Yahshua said the following.

.Mattithyah 19:17—
But He said to him: Why do you question Me about Righteousness? There is only One Who is the Standard of Perfection, and that is Yahweh; so if you would enter into life, keep the Laws.

Yahweh inspired Shaul to write in Romans 7:7 that he would not have known what sin is except for Yahweh's Laws, which make sin very clear.

If the Apostle Shaul would not even have known what sin was without having Yahweh's Laws to guide him, how much more do we need the Laws to guide us in our quest for Eternal Life? Since only the Scriptures can guide us to truth and life, then we need to search the Scriptures to see what they really say about the use of drugs.

The Abuse Of Drugs

The abuse of drugs by mankind is by no means a new practice. Yahweh was well aware of the drug use in the lands of Egypt and Canaan. Yahweh warned His People.

.Deuteronomy 29:16-19—
16 You yourselves know how we lived in the land of Egypt, and how we passed through the countries on the way here.
17 You saw the abomination of gods among them—Gods of wood, stone, silver, and gold; elohim and teraphim.
18 I solemnly entreat you to enter into the covenant and oath, for fear that there may be among you a man, woman, clan, or tribe this day whose heart would turn away from Yahweh our Father, to go and worship the Gods (elohim) of those nations; for fear there should be among you a root that brings forth gall and wormwood—poison and bitterness: the consequences of practicing godworship (the worship of elohim and teraphim).
19 I solemnly entreat you to enter into the covenant and oath, so it will never come to pass, when that one hears the words of this curse, that he can congratulate and delude himself in his heart, and erroneously think: I will have peace and safety, even though I persist in going my own way. Yahweh will hold all of his sins against him; he has acted; sinned, presumptuously. He is as a drunkard totally out of control.

Reading from Webster's New Twentieth Century Dictionary Of The English Language, Unabridged, Second Edition, copyright 1968, by The World Publishing Company, we find that opium is:


Besides opium, there are many other substances both natural and synthetic that are used throughout the world. The Holy Scriptures do not specifically name such substances as LSD, cocaine, PCP, marijuana or heroin. But it does give us, in the meanings of gall and wormwood, the description of the effects of these substances on the mind. These substances, regardless of what scientific or legal classification they fall under, when used recreationally, are taken solely for the mind altering effect they produce. This may be a drug on the street or even a prescription drug.

Listed below are just a few of the many drugs that are commonly used in today's society. Keep in mind that in this search for pleasure, new drugs or derivatives of old drugs are developed or introduced nearly every day.

Commonly listed under the heading of narcotics are:


Under the classification of depressants are chemicals which have a sedative effect. Among these are barbiturates which produce effects of slurred speech, disorientation and drunken behavior.


Narcotics, sedatives, pain killers, tranquilizers and sleeping pills all have potential for abuse. These chemicals can affect the thought controls of one's mind.

The drugs listed as stimulants include:


These powerful stimulants of the central nervous system speed up the heartrate, adrenal production, and brain-body functions. Many believe these drugs to be a help and a blessing to their lives and decide to prescribe them to themselves. But these drugs are highly physically addictive. The brain itself becomes biochemically changed by the use of these drugs. Tolerance develops, causing the user to increase the dosage in order to receive the intended effect. Stopping the drug use causes acute physical and mental symptoms. The normal, energetic person is then unable to function without the dose of their drug. This dose becomes their one quest. Rather than seeking Yahweh with all their hearts, they now must seek the drug their bodies now require in order to energize their apathetic bodies.

Several other drugs are classified as hallucinogens, substances that produce hallucinations. Notice the definitions of the following words.


When one is hallucinating, one is definitely not in complete control of one's mind. Drugs that are classified as hallucinogens include:



Marijuana and its related substances, have long been proclaimed harmless by its users. However, The Executive Health Report, October 1977, page 8, gives us this information about the so-called harmless drug marijuana.


The word, assassin, is derived from the Arabic word, hashshashin which means hashish user. The Hashshashin were members of a secret sect of Moslems who killed Christian leaders during the Crusades supposedly while under the influence of hashish. Are we really to believe that a drug that can lead one to murder is really harmless?

The drugs we have listed here are those most commonly used for recreational purposes, providing escape from reality while altering one's judgment and understanding.

.Deuteronomy 29:18-19—
18 ...for fear there should be among you a root that brings forth gall and wormwood...
19 ...so it will never come to pass, when that one hears the words of this curse, that he can congratulate and delude himself in his heart...


Drugs And Sorcery

The Prophecies show us that mankind will not repent of the wrongful use of drugs, before Yahshua returns.

.Revelation 9:20-21—
20 And the rest of the men who were not killed by these plagues, still did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and Gods (elohim, teraphim) of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which can neither see, nor hear, nor walk;
21 Neither did they repent of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

The word sorceries in Revelation 9:21 refers directly to those who traffic in and use mind altering drugs. The word sorceries is the Greek word pharmakeia which is listed as word #5331 in Strong's Greek Dictionary, which comes from word #5332.


.Thayer's Greek Lexicon, page 649, gives us this information about sorcery, sorcerers, drugs and drug users.

 

.Vine's Expository Dictionary, pages 1064 and 1065, tells us this about sorcerers and sorcery.


Now read the following information from the Analytical Greek Lexicon by Harper, page 423, concerning the words translated sorcerer and sorcery.

  

As the meanings of these words show, the use of mind altering drugs is God worship, which is nothing more than the worship of Satan the devil who has the whole world deceived (Revelation 12:9). Notice the following Scripture.

.II Corinthians 4:4—
For the God (el) of this world (Satan) has blinded the minds of those who do not believe, so that the Light of the Message of the Glory of the Messiah, Who is the Image of Yahweh, should not shine unto them.

The word translated blinded is the Greek word tuphloo and according to Thayer's Greek Lexicon, page 633, means to blunt the mental discernment and darken the mind.

This is a perfect description of what occurs to a person who abuses drugs—whether they are the drugs listed earlier in this article or even the abuse of prescription drugs—one opens the mind to demonic influences and even demon possession. Thayer's Greek Lexicon on page 649, under the word pharmakeia (sorcery) refers us to the Hebrew word lahatim. According to the Hebrew-Aramaic-English Dictionary by Marcus Jastrow, page 693, the word lahatim tells us that sorcery (drug use and drunkenness) is the work of demons.

Notice now what Yahweh says about those who refuse to repent of this sin.

.I Corinthians 6:9-10—
9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the Kingdom of Yahweh? Do not deceive yourselves. Neither fornicators, nor God worshippers (worshippers of elohim), nor adulterers, nor men who commit sexual perversions with boys, nor men who commit sexual perversions with other men,
10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, will inherit the Kingdom of Yahweh.

.Galatians 5:19-21—
19 For the works of the flesh are obvious, which are these: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, licentiousness,
20 Godworship (the worship of elohim), sorcery, hatred, contentions, evil jealousies, rage, selfish ambitions, dissensions; disagreements with quarreling, heresies; sects or factions of division,
21 Envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I warn you beforehand, just as I did in times past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the Kingdom of Yahweh.

.Revelation 21:8—
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and worshippers of Gods (elohim), and all liars, will have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone—which is the second death.

This word sorcerer is referring to the people who use and sell drugs as having their part in the lake of fire.

Notice this excerpt from Reader's Digest.

  
  

Not only will the black-market drug users and drug dealers suffer, if they do not repent, but doctors who dispense the abominable, government controlled drugs for illicit purposes, will also suffer if they do not repent.

To those who are ensnared by drug abuse, Yahweh says repent!


The History Of Drug Use

To understand how drug use has spread throughout history, let us look at the governmental nimrod system.

.Genesis 10:8-10—
8 Cush begot Nimrod; he began to be a mighty one on the earth.
9 He was a tyrant who deceived, who turned against Yahweh; therefore it is said: Like Nimrod the tyrant who deceived, who turned against Yahweh.
10 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, Erech, Accad, and all of them in the land of Shinar; that is, Babylon.

This geo-political-religious-beastly system became known as Babylon, which means confusion, and gate of god as the Hebrew Lexicon by Brown, Driver and Briggs, on page 93, shows us.


In the Encyclopedia Britannica Micropedia, Volume 4, page 233, we find that the oldest catalogue of drugs was from ancient Babylon.

The oldest existing catalogue of drugs (called pharmacopoeia) is a stone tablet from ancient Babylonia (c. 1700 BC).

From the New Catholic Encyclopedia, Volume 4, page 1064, we learn that drug use spread from Babylon to the Greeks and Arabs and eventually throughout the Roman Empire.


Throughout the Holy Scriptures we find that the Babylonian system, which was in opposition to Yahweh's Laws, never died. It merely changed names as it spread throughout the world with the same practices of Godworship, including the use of drugs for pleasure and escape. The book of Revelation shows us this same Satan inspired Babylonian religious-governmental system is very active in these last days. Satan, by continually teaching against Yahweh and His Laws, has caused the inhabitants of this world to act as one who is drunk, empty-headed, and out of control.

.Revelation 17:4-5,2—
4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication.
5 And upon her head was a name written: mystery babylon the great, the mother of the harlots and of the abominations of the earth.
2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication; practiced idolatry: God worship (the worship of elohim), and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.

Drug abuse has victimized the young and old of all nations. The use of drugs causes drug users to think they see and realize wonderful things that they never knew before. They encourage others to use drugs so they can feel and see the same things. In actual fact, the abuse of these drugs blocks our ability to connect with Father Yahweh and learn of His Ways.

.Revelation 18:23—
...for by your sorceries all the nations were deceived.

Earlier in this article we saw that the word sorceries comes from the Greek word pharmakeia, which means drugs. Satan is using drugs to deceive this world into forgetting Yahweh and His Laws.

If you care anything about your Eternal Life, don't be an idolatrous partaker of this religion by clouding your mind with Satan-inspired drugs. Remember the warning given to us in Yahweh's Laws.

Yahweh tells us that drug users and drunkards will not have a part in His Kingdom. Notice where they will end.

.Galatians 5:19-21—
19 For the works of the flesh are obvious, which are these: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, licentiousness,
20 God worship (the worship of elohim), sorcery, hatred, contentions, evil jealousies, rage, selfish ambitions, dissensions; disagreements with quarreling, heresies; sects or factions of division,
21 Envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I warn you beforehand, just as I did in times past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the Kingdom of Yahweh.

.Revelation 21:8—
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and worshipers of Gods (elohim), and all liars, will have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstonewhich is the second death.

.Revelation 22:15—
For outside are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and worshipers of Gods (elohim) and everyone who professes to love, yet practices breaking the Law.

We are living in the end times. The return of Yahshua Messiah and the establishment of the Kingdom of Yahweh is at hand. Therefore, let us obey Yahweh and be sober so that we may be able to stand Righteously before Yahweh.

.I Kepha 4:7—
But the end of all things is at hand; therefore, be sober and watchful in your prayers.

.Luke 21:34-36—
34 So be on your guard—see to it that your minds are never clouded with carousing, drunkenness, or anxieties and worries of this life - so that day will not come upon you unexpectedly,
35 For it will come, like a trap, on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth.
36 Because of this—watch, and pray always that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.



Open Your Eyes So You Can Hear!

By Laura Pederson

  Many people have come in the pearly white gates here at the `Y' of this dirt road called Oak Forest. Each individual has their ideas and expectations when they first come to The House of Yahweh. A handful have stayed strong here in this dusty, rocky wilderness and more than we would like to see fell off the cliff to a cold hard plummet.
  To remain in Yahweh's House there are some points that must be covered. First, obedience first then comes understanding. Overseer Yisrayl Hawkins does all he can to not only teach us everything in the Holy Scriptures, but to live by it. He lives by and obeys every Word of Yahweh. The more he has been capable of doing this correctly, the more understanding Yahweh gives him. It's like when we started keeping the Sabbath correctly and we started receiving Spirit Holy; finally finding joy and delight in the Sabbath Day.
  We are fed with the milk until we are able to eat the meat. Here's an analogy. When I eat a bag of chips, I look inside and pick a chip and then eat it. So it's like we are the mouth and Yahweh has the bag of chips in His Hand. As He sees we're ready for something else, He chooses it and gives it to us. This could be with understanding or even our tests. Yahweh will decide when we are ready for another chip.
  We are commanded to believe into the One whom He has sent. Well we know through Yisrayl Hawkins being the One Sent and foretelling events that the Scriptures are indeed the only Truth in the whole universe! Throughout the years, Pastor has brought out many things. He has properly taught the keeping of the Sabbath, proper conduct and dress and the Peaceful Solution Character Education Program. Certain things he has brought out, such as the Holy Garments, Satan being a woman, and the Laws on slavery and marriage, have brought not only hatred from outsiders but from those of his own house as well. To no surprise, of course, but some either couldn't get a grasp of it or didn't want to.
  Open your eyes so that you can hear! Have no doubts, Yahweh is the Only Source of Power and He is speaking through His Last Days' Witness, Pastor Yisrayl Hawkins! He is the voice of Yahweh, His spokesman. Remember, how can you learn without a Teacher?
  Yahweh called us out individually because Pastor says some are more stubborn than others. It takes some a little more time than others. But by now, no one should have doubts. Only through listening to the One Sent and all that the Scriptures say will you gain Salvation! Stand Strong! Seek Counsel! Endure until The End! It's at the very door!




Problem: 1 in 5 college students admitted to drunk driving, study found
  Drinking and driving among college students is still a major public health problem, new research reveals, with one in five admitting to driving while drunk and 40 percent acknowledging they have ridden with a drunk driver. Equally worrisome, their tendency to drive under the influence soars when they hit the minimum legal drinking age of 21.
  This study tends to demonstrate that alcohol-related problem behaviors increase with age, perhaps due to greater opportunities for risk taking such as owning a car or the ability to patronize bars and purchase alcohol. If college programs were successful, we should be able to at least prevent an increase in risky drinking during the period the students are at the university.

Solution:
  The above underlined problems can be solved simply by practicing self-control. In the Self-Control unit of the Peaceful Solution Character Education Program, page 4, it states the meaning of self-control.
  Self-control is controlling (that is, guiding or directing) what you think, because thoughts lead to feelings. Controlling what you feel, because feelings lead to actions. Controlling how you behave, because decisions lead to actions which lead to rewards and consequences.
  Self-control is the foundation of moral behavior. When you practice self-control, you can carefully consider whether your thoughts and feelings will lead to actions that are morally correct ad in your best interest. If people think of how their actions would affect others a lot of lives could be saved.
  In the Peaceful Solution Character Education Program, we have an acronym that is very important. It is the STOP acronym, found in the Self-Control Unit on page 21.
    S - Stop
    T - Think
    O - Options
    P - Proceed with the right choice
Each person is obligated to consider how their actions affect others.

Problem: Teenage drug abuse skyrockets
  At a June 2010 music rave in Los Angeles, thousands of teenagers were drunk and high, reports CBS News correspondent Ben Tracy.
  15-year-old Sasha Rodriguez drank water laced with ectasy. She later overdosed and died. It may seem shocking, but in the last three years ecstasy use among teenagers has jumped 67 percent. One in 10 teens now use it. Marijuana use is up 22 percent, with four in 10 teens smoking pot, according to The Partnership at Drugfree. org.
  The teens we talked to say drinking and smoking pot isn't something that just happens on the weekends at parties — They say it happens all week long.
A non-stop party that can turn deadly.

Solution:
 It's amazing to see the results of what our society promotes, but it's all a consequence of not diligently teaching basic moral principles to our youth.
  In the article entitled, "Teenage drug abuse skyrockets," we see a clear example of how many young adolescents put their lives at risk in order to participate in what they believe to be fun or normal.
  It explains that in June 2010, in a music rave in Los Angeles, thousands of teenagers were drunk and high. This shows how they lost all self-control, and also the power in music. Especially if the lyrics to that song were teaching disrespect and influencing these people through subliminal messages.
  One question for many thinking about safety would be, "Where were the parents?"
These young people were not guarded enough and they were also not taught self-respect. Somehow they were allowed to be without proper supervision and ended up in a rave, meaning they were acting crazy, impulsively, and being led by emotions. There was no common-sense involved.
  There is another case where a 15-year-old drank water laced with ecstasy. She overdosed and died, but she's not alone. This article explains how in the last three years, the use of ecstasy among teenagers has grown about 67%, meaning that one in ten teens use it.
  Ecstasy is a drug. Using this amphetamine causes difficulty in telling the difference between reality and fantasy, opening doors for confusion and many other things to occur. It's pretty scary to think that there are teenagers putting themselves in a position where they can't tell real-life from something fake. It also destroys the cells in the brain and causes problems concentrating. Using ecstasy impairs memory and causes more things like paranoia, anxiety and who knows what else.
  Another drug being abused by thousands of teenagers is marijuana. Let me tell you what marijuana does to the brain. It negatively affects parts of your brain that control emotions, memory and judgment.
Using marijuana impairs short-term memory and also blocks the path to having long-term memory. You then have a difficult time solving problems. Using it once is very detrimental to a person's health, but in this article, we find out that these teenagers use it about all week long.
  I want to address one of the main problems in this case, but before I do, remember that all problems can be solved with consistent teaching and practicing of the Peaceful Solution Character Education Program.
For the most part, parents and guardians don't dream of their children being high on drugs or drunk or dying. So what do they want for their children? It is a proven fact, humans have a natural tendency to want to do what's wrong. Everyone must be taught positive moral character in order for true peace to be the result.
  It was very shocking to me to read that some of the high school students did not consider smoking weed as "taboo". They have become desensitized to the fact that using these drugs shows no self-respect and is against all morality.
Now, some young people do see the harm in it, but do they know how to fix the problem? Is our current society promoting anything different?
  One teacher told me that a contributing factor of teenagers taking on this behavior is using social networking for hours at a time. Different network sites make it possible for these children, even as young as 12, to learn how to light up joints or get drunk. Simply put, they learn how to kill themselves and be part of statistics showing the thousands of deaths of children who use and abuse drugs, alcohol, and smoking.
  While they participate in these deadly "parties", the drugs taken make the brain and body feel fake relaxation and light feelings. For example: just getting drunk for some people causes a numbing effect. The addiction comes when the person feels that drunkenness is the way to overpower their depression or heavy bothersome thoughts. But I don't think anyone told these people that drugs and alcohol just makes things worse. So, it's clear to see that this isn't the true solution.
  In fixing this widespread problem, parents or guardians need to be taught how to carefully look after and guard their children, especially young adults. In the Intermediate series of the Peaceful Solution Character Education Program there are two units that will greatly help this situation. I want to start off by teaching respect, self-respect.
  Self-respect means caring for yourself physically and mentally to promote positive growth and development. This includes making choices that would not cause hurt or harm to yourself, even if the majority of your friends say it's right. Being educated before making a decision would benefit efforts in showing self-respect.
 Children should also be taught to choose positive conformity, meaning that you would only conform to something that would:
      - not hurt you.
      - not hurt anyone else.
      - not harm or hurt anyone's possessions.
 Keeping away from negative conformity can and will keep one out of trouble. You have the right to say "no" to something that brings negative consequences and you would be better off with asking your authority first before you do something you're not sure about.
  These young adults should be educated on what drugs do to the body and the harm they cause. Getting high or smoking all week long is not healthy and is also not the way to solve problems or get rid of your personal issues.
  Being responsible for your own actions is very important. This should also be taught to these teenagers. This enables them to see that there is a choice to be made when they are faced with a situation. Making right choices helps to achieve positive goals and prevents being in a position where you experience the negative consequences of negative, immoral, inappropriate, risk-taking behavior.
  Teaching the concepts of respect and responsibility will help them to stop and think before doing something and choose to be safe and encourage others to do the same too.
  Hopefully soon, instead of seeing headlines like "Teenage drug abuse skyrockets", we will see headlines that say, "Teenage positive character use skyrockets". But please remember that character education must be consistently taught and practiced.
—Shama, age 14
