Armageddon

Since there is no character in the Greek language for the Hebrew “h”, the Greek rendering became “Armageddon.” But, har (click on highlighted words to view content) is the Hebrew word for mountain, the exact opposite in meaning from a valley, and is the ancient site of Tel Megiddo. The location of this site is NOT in Israel’s largest valley, 50 miles north of Jerusalem, as is commonly thought. Yet this 20-mile long and 14-mile wide valley (presently known as the Valley of Jezreel or the Plain of Megiddo) remains one of the popular stops on most tours of Israel. The name of the battle to occur there is NOT “Armageddon” or “the battle of Armageddon.” It’s an assemblage for battle on “the great day of YaHoVeH Almighty” (Revelation 16:14). Armageddon is simply the location of the battle. This battle is part of the whole prophecy of the book of Revelation which, according to Revelation itself, these were things that would shortly take place because the time is near and were obeyable, heedable and keepable in the lives of this book’s original recipients in that 1st Century time frame. Likewise, the whole of this prophecy was not to be sealed up. But in spite of these words Christians have, in essence, sealed it up for over nineteen centuries and counting via their postponement interpretation. Now, however, they want to unseal it by claiming that these events will finally and soon occur in our day and time.

Covenant Theology vs. Replacement Theology

Under the Covenants of the Bible, Almighty Yahweh chose Abraham, Isaac, Jacob (called Israel), and all the twelve tribes of Israel (or thirteen, depending on how one may count them) and all of their pure genetic descendants, and that is what is meant by the phrase “Covenant Theology”! If one is under this Biblical Covenant, he cannot choose not to be under it. On the other hand if one is not under this Biblical Covenant, he can not choose to somehow to be included under it. Only those who are under this Biblical Covenant can be considered Christians (meaning anointed ones from their conception)!

A House Divided Against Itself Will Not Stand

Most Christians neglect the relationship between obedience that brings about blessings, and disobedience that results in curses. They call that bedrock principle “legalism,” and insist that they are no longer “under the law.”

They insist that they are “under grace,” which means that they don’t have to obey the Commandments.

Having rejected the righteous instructions contained in the Torah, many find themselves in a perpetual state of confusion and curses, because they are lawless. Yahushua described them as “you who practice lawlessness.” Matthew 7:23

The so-called Christian nation of America is an absolute spiritual and moral mess. This is largely because Christianity has promoted lawlessness, instead of obedience to the Commandments.

Paths of Old – Ancient Paths

Jeremiah 6:16; 18:15; Acts 15:21

“Thus said יהוה (Yahweh), “Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; and find rest for yourselves….” (Jeremiah 6:16)

“But My people have forgotten Me, they have burned incense to what is false, and they have stumbled from their ways, from the ancient paths, to walk in bypaths and not on a highway.” (Jeremiah 18:15)

Regular public reading of the Torah was introduced by Ezra the Scribe after the return of the Jewish people from their Babylonian captivity (c. 537 BCE), as described in the Book of Nehemiah 8. In the modern era, adherents of Orthodox Judaism practice Torah reading according to a set procedure they believe has remained unchanged in the two thousand years since the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem (70 CE).

“For from ancient generations Mosheh has, in every city, those proclaiming him – being read in the congregations every Sabbath.” (Acts 15:21)

Christians & Jews Search For Perfect Red Heifer

The Temple Institute launched its Red Heifer program about a decade ago, but even in Temple times, an animal that fulfilled the Biblical requirements was exceedingly rare.
