True Worship of YHWH God
Friday March 27, 2020
According to the book, “The Framework of the Book of Revelation,” the book of Revelation describes seven visions. The fifth vision begins with three particular Angels (messengers). They are three particular Angels (Messengers) who have a universal messages to all the inhabitants of the earth.
(I) First Angel (Messenger) began his mission at the cross of Jesus and at the day of Pentecost (the Feast of the Seven Sevens Shavuot). He is warning the people (Jews and Gentiles) and he is preaching them: (1) To believe in the Messiah Christ, (2) To fear Christ, (3) To repent of their unbelief and of their sins and (4) To give Christ the Messiah YHWH all glory.
✦ Acts 2:17 “And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Holy Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams.” From that day, the Apostles and the Messianic believers went out to preach the Gospel. This also represents the First Angel (Messenger).
This Angel (Messenger) declared that his preaching is at the end of times which John, Peter and Paul mentioned also.
✦ 1 John 2:18 “Little children (young in faith), it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.”
✦ 2 Peter 3:1-6 “Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle to remind you, that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior, knowing this first:
“that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, "Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation." For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water.
✦ 2 Timothy 3:1 “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come.”
(II) The Second Angel (Messenger) will declare the end of the humanistic pyramidal system which is called the Church, or Babylon, or the Harlot and her daughters the harlots.
(III) The Third Angel will declare the wrath of God and the final judgement on everyone who does not have the mark of God, but rather has the Mark of the beast. The final war will be at the Valley of Jehoshaphat which is east and near to Jerusalem.
Here is the text:
Revelation 14:6-7 “Then I saw another (the First Angel) Messenger flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth, to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people, saying with a loud voice, "Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water."
Revelation 14:8 “And another (the Second Angel) Messenger followed, saying, "Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication."
Revelation 14:9-11 “Then the Third Angel (Messenger) followed them, saying with a loud voice, "If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”
❍✧❍ ✞ ❍✧❍
The First Angel’s message has three parts:
(1) Fear God
(2) Give Glory to God
(3) Worship God who made the heaven, the earth, the sea and the waters, i.e. worship God because He alone is the Creator of heaven and earth.
WORSHIPING GOD is demanded by virtue of three essential facts:
(1) YHWH (God - Jesus - Messiah) is the Creator of the heavens (multidimensional universes) and the earth.
(2) Jesus Messiah (YHWH - God) is the Redeemer of His elect (the sons of God).
(3) Jesus Messiah (YHWH - God) sustains everything that exists millisecond by millisecond. Without Him, existence will cease.
✦ Revelation 4:9-11 “Whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying:
"You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created.”
✦ Acts 17:23-31 “... The One whom you worship without knowing, Him I (Paul) proclaim to you: God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands (Churches are NOT houses of God). Nor is He worshiped with men's hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things (This is similar to the Message of the Second Angel).
And He has made from one every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their pre-appointed (predestined in His Decree) times and the boundaries of their dwellings, ... for in Him we live and move and have our being.” ... Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent (This is similar to the Message of the First Angel), because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained (This is similar to the Message of the Third Angel). He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead."
✦ Revelation 5:11-13 “Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice: "Worthy is the Lamb who was slain To receive power and riches and wisdom, And strength and honor and glory and blessing!" And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying: "Blessing and honor and glory and power Be to Him who sits on the throne, And to the Lamb, forever and ever!”
These are the three primary reasons to worship God who is YHWH who is the Messiah.
To summarize, we are required to worship YHWH in truth because: (1) He is the Creator, (2) He is the Redeemer, (3) He is the Sovereign sustainer of our lives and existence.

This Study (Article) will focus on the Worship of God YHWH the Messiah
People worship God, or themselves, or demons in the form of idols and supernatural.
We cannot mix worshiping God with any other.
Adam’s wife worshiped herself and she trusted her feelings and her intelligence.
This led her to worship Satan and obey him. Then, she turned to her husband and demanded that he must worship or obey her. One of her granddaughters, Semiramis declared herself to be the Queen of Heaven and people worship her.
Probably, Eve thought that she can keep her love to God and gain more knowledge and blessings from Satan at the same time.
God does NOT share His glory or worship with anyone.
Also, some people worship: a car, a dog, a relationship, sex, money, popularity, entertainment, miracles and the supernatural, or the Church. These are humanistic forms of worship which lead us away from God.
Some people think that idol worship is harmless because it is nothing but imagination. Actually, idol worship is demonic worship. Demons manifest themselves as the pagan idols. Demons are real.
When we seek the truth, we should never seek the opinions of the men or women of the Church. Truth is not a majority vote.
We should find the truth ONLY in the Scriptures.
A good counselor will lead us to the Scriptures and NOT to himself or to herself.
The Antichrist (antichrists) will present the believers with a false system of worship, which is a parallel system leading the believers away from the true worship of Christ YHWH.
✦ Dan 7:25 The Antichrist shall (1) Speak pompous words against the most high (2) Persecute the faithful Messianic believers (true saints). (3) Attempt to change law (Ten Commandments). (4) Attempt to change the time (Saturday Sabbath to another day).
God made a sign for His covenant of Grace by which He will not destroy mankind but will wait thousands of years before the Last Day of Judgement.
This sign of covenant is the Rainbow. The Beast who represents the power of the global nations attempts to claim that the rainbow is a sign of Satan not of God. It is used as the colors for the LGBTQPedo. But, no one can steal what God has and ascribe it to something or someone else.
✦ Genesis 9:13 “YHWH said: “My rainbow in the cloud shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth.”
God also set another sign between Him and His sons (children) which is the Sabbath.
✦ Exodus 31:13 “Speak also to the children of Israel, saying: 'Surely My Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the LORD who sanctifies you.”
** Notice, we become holy by obeying YHWH’s commandments.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE HOLY?
For a person or an object to be holy means one or more of four meanings:
(1) Holiness is YHWH’s divine nature (Only God is divine). There is one God, therefore, no one can become holy as a god or as God.
Pastors and missionaries who claim to be holy men of God by virtue of their employment err profoundly.
(2) Holiness is complete separation from the filthy world. All the world is filthy as God is telling us that “all our works are like filthy rags.” But, the Church opposes this teaching, claiming that the world is good and can be morally upright. This makes almost no distinction between the Church and the world.
(3) Holiness is dedication of a person or an object to a specific function or purpose or existence. In this sense, it means consecrated. Thus, a wife is holy for her husband and the husband is holy for his wife. This principle was discussed by Paul who said that even if your spouse is a non-believer, he/she is holy by virtue of their dedication to you in marriage. This is also exemplified in the Prophets, the Apostles, the old Nazarites, and Judges who were called by God and who were dedicated to certain divine functions.
Marriage is also ordained by God, hence our faithfulness and dedication in marriage is holiness. The Sabbath is the only holy day in the week because God dedicated the Sabbath.
But, pastors, missionaries and ministry leaders are NOT holy because God did not appoint them to any divine function. The Church is a big man-made pyramidal religious club (organization) and it is not the House of God. The Church trademark is ® made-in-Rome. Emperor Constantine and his master demon Sun-god are very proud of their accomplishment, the Church. It is leading almost two billion Christians in a parallel equivocal road away from Christ. Its banner and sign is Sunday (Sun-god Day) worship.
(4) Holiness is faithful commitment and dedication to obey God’s Ten Commandments and the Clean Food Rules (Kashrut). Thus, all faithful believers of all ages are “holy.” you do not need to be a clergy to be holy, but rather every true believer is holy. Paul calls every truly born again believer “a saint.”
Holiness has no degrees. But, sanctification is a process; we become more sanctified as we obey YHWH’s Ten Commandment and express true practical love to the poor and the needy.
Our sanctification does not depend on how we feel about God, or how we feel about God’s love to us, or how we feel about ourselves, or how people see or esteem us.
WORSHIP IS KEEPING THE SABBATH OF GOD
It is the MARK of God (as opposite to the mark of the beast).
The Sabbath is a sign of God’s Creation.
The Sabbath is a sign of God’s Redemption to us.
The Sabbath is a sign of God’s sovereign providence and constant sustenance of us.
Jesus is YHWH LORD of the Sabbath:
(1) He created the Sabbath.
(2) He made it a SIGN for all faithful believers.
(3) He demanded not only the physical rest, but also our TRUST in His provision.
✦ Luke 4:16 “He came to Nazareth where He was brought up. He went to the synagogue on the Sabbath as it was His custom. Jesus honored the Sabbath.”
✦ Acts 13:13-44 describe Paul as teaching at the synagogue on the Sabbath. When the converted Gentiles asked that Paul teaches them, he and they respected the Sabbath and met on the following Sabbath day. Sunday was the typical pagan Greek and Roman worship day of the Sun-god Sol Invictus. Paul did not meet with them on Sunday as the Church teaches falsely.
The antichrists, in different cultures, changed the Sabbath of God to another day, such as, the Sun-god day, Venus-god day (Friday), Moon-god day (Monday), Mars-god day (Tuesday), Mercury-god day (Wednesday), Jupiter/Zeus-god day (Thursday).
HOW CAN I WORSHIP GOD?
(1) Having a contrite, humble, and submissive spirit to God.
(2) Reading the Scriptures is worship. This is the most important aspect of worship.
(3) Obeying God’s
(I) Ten Commandment as they are written and NOT as the people interpret them, and
(II) Eating clean Kosher food as God commanded us, his children, and NOT as the rabbis instituted.
✦ 1 John 2:3 “Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments.
✦ 1 John 2:4 “He who says, "I know Him," and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.”
✦ 1 John 5:2-3 “By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome.”
(4) Praying directly to God through Jesus Christ is worship.
The best way to pray is to talk directly with Jesus as you talk with your loving father or loving brother with respect, reverence and fear.
✦ 1 John 3:22 “And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.”
(5) Praying in public is worship if it is sincere (not to collect money or to make people feel good, or to promote yourself in the pyramidal Church structure.)
(6) Studying the Bible is worship.
(7) Visiting and helping (physically, emotionally and financially) those who are sick, or weak, or poor, or chaste celibate widows and widowers, or needy children are practical ways to worship God.
Attending a church or giving your money as cash to pastors’ and missionaries’ pockets is NOT worshiping God, but it is a fake worship. A question: Is not taking the money which belongs to the poor and the needy into our pockets as salaries or income or expense to be considered stealing or robbing God?
Jesus will visit us as a poor, lonely, sick, imprisoned (for money), or a widow (chaste - not dating or clubbing), or a child who has financial needs. We cannot reject Jesus and feel good (hypnotized) because of the common Church teaching.
Did you know that James wrote large volumes of biblical studies as witnessed by the Ebionites of his time. Did you know that the Christian Church destroyed his works except for one Epistle. The Jews respected James highly, except with regard to his teaching about Yeshua Jesus the Messiah. Did you know that Martin Luther hated the Epistle of James?
✦ James 1:27 “Pure and undefiled religion (faith and worship) before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.”
✦ James 2:5-6 “Hear, my beloved Brothers; has not God chosen the poor of the world who are rich in faith, to be heirs in the Kingdom which God has promised to them that love him? But you have despised the poor man. Do not rich men exalt themselves over you and drag you before the tribunals?”
✧ This is the reason why I teach that good pastors are the poor pastors. The majority of successful pastors and almost all missionaries are very rich from “God’s money”. I know many of them who are multimillionaires.
(8) Singing in your heart (not only with your mouth) without music (a capella) is worship. (The Church of Christ and some Amish and Mennonites understand and apply this a capella principle.)
(9) Singing with decent music CAN, (which means: may or may not), be true worship. The original hymns writers, men and women, wrote beautiful poetry which expressed truth and worship.
Most of their poetry was theologically correct, although some of them worshiped the Sun-god or had theological errors. Their hymns had to submit to the musical metering adopted by the Church to force homogeneity and uniformity.
Today, it appears that the goal of the so called “Christian musicians” is to invent, impress, dazzle, and introduce new music with no emphasis on the words.
Repetitions which are hypnotic and loud percussion music which are neurologically disturbing, (even damaging to neurons dendrites), became the most of Christian and Messianic music today.
Some ministers or pastors became rich as they had a new job title: “Worship Leader,” seriously? This is not worship and whom is he (or she) is leading.
Sadly, almost all Churches have redefined worship as a glamorous Hollywood type, or loud, or percussion with drums, or mystic spiritist chanting type, or beautiful demonic entertaining type music. They teach and assume falsely that if you mention the name of Jesus, then whatever you do is a holy exercise and worship. This is like putting lipstick on a pig. Trust me, there are no holy pigs. Most Churches have degraded worship to Hollywood type music.
The faithful true believers who attend these types of worship have no idea what is worship. The lack of knowledge leads many as blind sheep.
How did Jesus and the Apostles worship?
✧ They read the Scriptures.
✧ Sometimes they sang a capella with a humble and contrite heart to God in thanksgiving.
✧ They prayed with intercessory prayers.
True worship is a direct relationship with Jesus YHWH God.
The use of any musical instrument during worship must be of secondary importance or of no importance. Many churches spend God’s money to buy musical insturments, to pay musicians, to buy choir robes, to buy audio/video systems to enhance the music and presentation, while they give between 2%-7% to the poor and the needy.
God’s money should be given at 100% to the poor and the needy, as they represent Jesus Christ.
