Behold the Lamb of God, Who takes away the Sins of the World.

I even I AM He
that blots out thy transgressions. for My Own Sake, and will not remember your sins.

As ambassadors of our creator Yahweh God, We will faithfully present the Truth of God's TRUTH,  Christ Jesus, the Lord
(See 2nd Corinthians 5 verse 19 thru 21, Colossians 3 verse 12 thru 13, 1st Peter 4 verse 8.)


For God so Loved the World that He Gave His One and only Son, that whosoever would believe IN the TRUTH of His Son, Jesus Christ, should not perish, but enter into Eternal Life. For Whoever has the Son has Life: But whoever does not have the Son of God does not have Life. (John 3 verse 16 and 1st John 5 verse 12.)


The fullness of  the Almighty's New Covenant, is through the Sanctifying LIFE giving Blood of His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, that enables the obedient members within Christ's Covering Body to flow together as One in the TRUTH and the WAY of His Holy Spirit of Grace, Who is One IN God's Salvation LIFE IN Christ Jesus. (See 1st John 5 verse 6 thru 8, 2nd Thessalonians 2 verse 13 thru 17, John 13 verse 34 thru 35, Matthew 26 verse 26.)

Above all, keep your love for one another constant, for “love covers a multitude of sins.” (1st Peter 4 thru 8.)



This Home Page is an introduction to the renewed contents within this Web Site.  It was through several night visions that the Holy Spirit of God brought to attention the least among those saved by His Grace in Christ Jesus.  God's Spirit of Grace gave to this very insignificant person, the beginning inspiration for the apologetic writings that are freely provided within this web site.  In 1984, we began the writings for one small E Book, but in time, the one book was extrapolated and expanded into the two apologetic works that together would stand on the TRUTH of the WORD of God.  Along with the two main books, there are other writings that continue to be enlarged with increased understanding, and all of the writings remain open for communication modifications. 

The principle manuscript is called "The Doctrine of Life, in the Spirit of Truth".  In years past, this was the primary work that was inspired by visionary revelations given to the recipient through the Light of God's Holy Spirit of Truth and Grace.  Working within the apologetics of this writing, there are three significant visionary dreams presented by God's Holy Spirit of Truth.  God's Spirit of Life, reveals the unmitigated Unity within His Word of Truth that is essential to our fellowship within the One Holy Body of our Lord Jesus Christ.  God's Word is Constant, and His TRUTH is maintained for believers within the Lord's Life giving Covenant Blood through Holy God's Spirit of Grace.

The other manuscript is titled "The Beginnings of the Mystery of Iniquity".  This writing presents a good understanding of the mystery of iniquitous sin and sin's corruption into death.  The book will address the satanic warfare that has been taking place against God Almighty, and against the Sanctity of His WORD of Salvation given for the redemption of lost mankind.  When viewed in its fullness, this book of mystery will also begin to answer some hard questions that are not dealt with from behind self manufactured pulpits. The whole of the writings, will scrutinize the Satanic warfare that continually persecutes humanity and assails the WORD of God.  For this cause, the Almighty exalts His WORD of TRUTH even above His Holy Name that is blasphemed in the thoughts, words and deeds of supposed intelligent beings.

So then, the end purpose of the two principle manuscripts is to reveal God's Eternal Light in His Scripted Word of Truth, and answer tough, controversial questions that will begin to reveal the churches' ignorance of the Infinite WORD of the Eternal God Almighty.  Hopefully, the cutting edges of the Sword of the Holy Spirit of God, will be allowed to pierce the hearts of all of the called people of God, and would present a better view of the expanse of God's New Covenant of Love in Christ Jesus.  Holy God is faithful to His Covenant Word that is Christ Jesus:  For the Almighty's renewing Love in Christ Jesus is always available for the redeemed within God's Communion Grace given for the cleansing of the flesh with healing for the scared minds of His faithful members that reside within the One Holy Body of Christ Jesus. 

The Almighty God is the Holy God of the living, and He hates death, for death separates the only Living God of Creation, from the people of His creation. Wherefore, Wisdom directs the faithful members, abiding IN the Body of Christ, to come into fellowship with Sovereign Father God Almighty, and with each other, through God's Holy Spirit of Grace that is One with the cleansing Life giving Blood of our only Savior Jesus Christ.  Holy, Holy, Holy YHVH Lord God Almighty IN His Love coupled with His Mercy, is not willing that any should perish: For while we were yet in rebellion, He gave His only begotten Son, so that whosoever is in repentance from their treasonous sin, and wholly believes in the Holy Word of God IN Christ Jesus, they should not perish, but enter INTO the Knowledge of the Eternal Life of the TRUTH.  That Life of Yahweh God is within the Knowledge of God's Person of TRUTH, the Lord Jesus Christ.  The TRUTH of God is not an arbitrary interpretation of individualistic truth, or worldly wisdom, but is God's Spirit revealing Salvation Knowledge WITHIN Yahweh God's Word of TRUTH that is Yeshua/Jesus the Messiah.  Jesus/Yeshua, the WORD of God, declares that He is the TRUTH, and the only WAY of LIFE that brings repentant mankind into the Presence of His Father God Almighty. Three times Paul writes in his letters, of fallen mankind coming to, and remaining in the "Knowledge of the TRUTH." 

For this is good and acceptable in the Sight of God our Savior; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the Knowledge of the TRUTH.  For there is one God, and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. (1st Timothy 2 verse 3 thru 6.) Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. Ever learning, and never able to come to the Knowledge of the TRUTH. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the TRUTH: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. (See 2nd Timothy 3 verse 5 thru 8.) For if we sin willfully after that we have received the Knowledge of the TRUTH, there remains no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. (Hebrews 10 verse 26 thru 27.)

From the beginning, Man was to hear and follow the leading of the Lord His Creator, but Adam thought better and followed his own willful desires and died in his sins against the TRUTH found in the Almighty's Will.   It is God's Holy Spirit that reveals the Knowledge of the TRUTH, and not the soiled mind of the man of flesh.  The Knowledge of the TRUTH begins and ends IN the Lord Jesus Christ, Who is the Sacrificial Lamb of God, sent by His Father God to reveal that He, the Lord Jesus Christ, is the Light of the world, for in His coming to earth, He would reveal the Almighty's Perfect Love for repentant sinners.  In His Sacrificial death for our sin, Jesus/Yeshua, defeated our death, our grave, and our hell through the Power of His Father God's abiding Love.  The Eternal's Power of Love was revealed IN the Resurrection of the Father's Righteous and Only Begotten Son, Jesus the Messiah of God. (*See Romans 8 verse 28 thru 32.)

Paul writes in 2nd Timothy 2 verse 15; Study (that is be diligent) to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the WORD of TRUTH. The wise of heart, will investigate the whole of the matter that is presented on this website before coming to a final conclusion. (See Proverbs 18 verse 13.)

* The Doctrine of Life, in the Spirit of Truth

Take and eat


All of You


*The Beginnings of the Mystery of Iniquity



The Corruption of Man




If any man thinks that he knows any thing, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know.
(1st Corinthians 8 verse 2.) 

Be very careful with your own understanding that may be lacking in the fullness of God's New Covenant Word of Salvation IN Christ Jesus. 
The TRUTH does not change.

Jesus Christ the Word of God declares:
* My Doctrine is not Mine, but the Father's Who sent Me.*

Yahweh thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren (Hebrews), like unto me (Moses); unto Him you shall hearken. 
Says the Almighty God: I will put My Words in His Mouth, and He shall Speak unto them all that I shall Command Him. And it shall come to pass that whosoever will not hearken unto My Words which He shall Speak in My Name, I will require it of him.
(See Deuteronomy 18 verse 15 thru 19.)

Vengeance is Mine, I will repay; says the LORD!
If you are without chastisement, then you are bastards and not sons.

 What is the TRUTH, when you hear the WORD of Almighty God,  Say:  This is My Blood of the New Covenant,
shed for many for the forgiveness of sin.




Letter to the Hebrews

Warning of Vital Importance:

The Letter to the Hebrews is speaking to the new Jewish converts who are vacillating in their understanding of Christianity to the point of a return to the animal sacrifices in the Mosaic Covenant.  Reevaluating the Letter to the Hebrews will dispel the churches false notions that satisfies the vanity of our human nature.  The reader will discover why the Ecclesia's Communion Life in the Body and Cleansing Blood of Jesus Christ is dismissed as insignificant and unnecessary by many churches.  With the churches' dismissal of Holy God's Communion Life for His people, then God's Way of His Holy Spirit of the Truth and the Life of men, is also dismissed as irrelevant to the fallible mind of religious philosophers. The idolatrous flesh of man remains a contradictory presence, even in the Face of God's Salvation Gift of Life maintained by the Almighty's Spirit of Grace. 



*God's Passover is in the Feast of Unleavened Bread

In the Book of Exodus, (See Exodus 23 verse 14 thru 17.) Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God Almighty designated 3 permanent Feast of festival celebration for Israel. Outside of the Sabbath, the seventh day of rest, God made 3 feast for Israel, and within them, He designated specific days of Holy Convocations that are called the High Sabbaths. Accordingly, God's 3 festivals are the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the Feast of Shavuot/First Fruits/Weeks, and the Feast of Tabernacles.  Beside the 3 God ordained Feast, Israel developed within their own religious minds 4 other times that man calls feast.  However, if seen in God's Light, even the Passover with animal sacrifices was never designated as a Feast by God, but was the day for the slaughter of lambs, originally inclusive in the permanent Feast of Unleavened Bread; for the passover was eaten on the beginning evening of Nisan the 15th. (See demarcation in Exodus 12 verse 13 thru 20 also Jeremiah 31 verse 31 thru 33.) Each of God's permanent Feasts had inclusive events within His 3 designated Feasts. (See Leviticus 23 and read carefully0

Learn the truth about the Two preparations at the time of  the Passover and Feast of Unleavened Bread. Are you familiar with Chagigah or presentation offering, when 3 times in the year at the 3 designated Feast, God required each man of Israel to bring a physical gift when the male person came before the Almighty God. 

If Jesus The TRUTH stated that He, the Son of Man, must be in the grave 3 days and 3 nights, then why does man's religious tradition  of 2 and a half days in the grave, negate the WORD of GOD?


*Pentecost: Shavuot: The Feast of Weeks.

Simple mathematics in the gestation period of a child in the womb, will prove that God established Shavuot/Pentecost as the one True Day of God's 'First Fruit Birth' of His only Begotten Son, Jesus/Yeshua. The Almighty God designated this single High Feast Day of Shavuot, to be the Day when Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God would be God's First Born in the earth.  Christ's birth would have followed a 9 month gestational period in the womb of Mary.  Then 33 years later, as God's Passover Lamb, the Son of Man, Messiah  Yeshua would die for the sins of the world in the light of the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

The Infinite God Almighty, Creator of all things, seeing His creation of free flowing time from its beginning to its end, would not have selected from the Julian calendar the day of December 25th, for the birth of His Only Begotten Son.  The 25th day of December was a pagan holiday of Rome called Dies Natalis Solis Invicti. Man cannot sugar coat the myriad of pagan traditions and trappings of this world of sin and death, by adding to the pagan day, man's nostalgic sentiments, by calling the day Christmas, thereby making it palatable to the Mouth of the Almighty God of the Living.

Yahweh God designated this one day in His creation of time to be His High Sabbath Feast of First Fruits.  Three things would take place within His creation of free flowing time:




The 10 Virgins

Cutting Answers Revealed in this Parable:
For 5 virgins were wise, having the sufficiency of  oil with them, while the 5 accompanying virgins were so foolish, that before the wedding journey began, their oil was carelessly depleted, and they no longer possessed any oil what so ever.  Christian,  Gentile or Jew, are you among the wise or the foolish?






*Seeing the Sword of the Spirit.

Holy God's Communion Grace is revealed in the above vision:
For God's Spirit of TRUTH, is God's Spirit of Grace, and is One IN the Lord Jesus Christ, our High Priest, Who Declares:
"I AM the Way, the TRUTH and thee Life: No one comes to the Father except by Me

The wrote performance of Communion is not the right of passage into God's Throne Room of Grace, but begins with a humble and repentant heart, seeking freedom from the sins of our foolish flesh through God's Spirit of Grace in Christ Jesus.


*The Premature Rapture Heresy
The Revelation of Jesus Christ.

Blessed is he that reads and hears the Word of this prophecy.

Come let us reason together; and together we will investigate the unfailing Truth of the WORD of God through God's Spirit of Prophecy. 

If you have been taught and/or teach of an early rapture with a painless escape from the great tribulation to come, then for your sake and others, you will need to reevaluate the WORDS of our Lord Jesus Christ and that of His Blood purchased servant Paul. 

Primarily, you should know for a certainty that it is impossible for the apostle Paul, a bond servant of his Lord Jesus Christ, to contradict the Prophetic WORD of his Master, for the TRUTH is Jesus Christ, and No lie is of the TRUTH. (Consider 1st John 2 verse 21, and 2nd Corinthians 13 verse 8.)

Secondly, the reader will understand that the tribulation wrath is that of Satan, with man kind reaping the violent consequences of sin.  In the end of the violent aftermath of sin, Holy Righteous God will judge the living and the dead.

The TRUTH will prevail in all time.  For reproof click on the
* Premature Rapture Heresy.









*The Soul and the Life!

Do you know why the soul of man must be born again by Holy God's Spirit of Life?

All natural soul's die. The unseen soul within the blood of the natural man, is the natural unseen force that drives the natural life of all of mankind.  Many so called fundamentalist pastors, parrot an ignorant teaching, declaring that animals do not have souls like man.  But know this:  The soul is God's definitive unseen identity of the natural life force within the blood of all breathing creatures in God's creation. The wise reader will come away with a vital understanding of the soul of man that dies like the animals --- and because

The soul of the existing man is already dead to God, that soul must be reborn into Life by God's Spirit of Life IN Christ Jesus. 

For the Life of the Flesh is in the Blood”.




* Where does Infinity ∞ begin and end  ? 

Obviously, there is no beginning or ending to unknowable Eternity.  

But there is a Beginning to time: For the Eternal Creator God from His timeless Eternity, fashioned the fabric of time to accommodate His creation of the universe.  Then From Eternity, where there is no time, the Infinitely Holy God could view all things from the beginning of free flowing time to the end of His created fabric of  time. 

The Eternal God saw from Eternity that sin's master of rebellion would seed death into His creation of Man.  From the beginning to the end of time, Elohim God would know all of the people who would be born of the seed of earthly Adam, and would know of an individual's disposition to freely answer His saving call to the only Life that is in Christ Jesus. Those, who would believe and answer the Almighty's call to Salvation, God predestinated to be reborn within the faith of Jesus Christ, the righteous Lamb of God Who was crucified for mankind's sin before the very foundation of the world. (See Ephesians 1 verse 3 thru 7.)

Those that Holy God predestinated to Life will not remain wallowing in the world's unbelief, for they were made to be IN Christ Jesus, more than conquers over sin though the Sanctifying  Love of the Holy One of God Almighty.

Prophecy Warnings for Today & Tomorrow:

Your own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backslidings shall reprove thee: Know therefore and see that it is an evil and bitter thing, that you have forsaken the Lord thy God, and that My fear is not in thee, says the Lord God of Hosts. (Jeremiah 2 verse 19.)

Does the reader have the wisdom to heed the Warning signs that call for repentance from sin.
A Tsunami of Sin's own Catastrophic Upheavals*

On February 1, 2015, it was revealed in a visionary dream that a Tsunami of man's own sins of violence is coming with unrelenting force.  Make no mistake, for the accumulated violence of Sin's own returning judgments will first be experienced within what consensus Christianity calls the church. (See 1st Peter 4 verse 15 thru 19.) The Lord Jesus Christ has called His Church/Ecclesia to be light in the world and separated from the violence of sin.  But tragically the church, which is to be light in a dark world, has recessed into the shadows of the world's darkness with its double minded conformity that is in league with this sinful world of violence.  Do you not know that the friendship of the world is enmity (hated by God) with God? Therefore, whosoever will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. (James 4 verse 4.)

This Tsunami reveals the return flow from man's violence of sin in this world, and the violence will try the shallow faith of the many who say they are saved, but are injunction with the self centered mindset of this dark world that perpetuates the violence of sin.  Have you not heard; We reap what we sow, and your sin will find you out? Perhaps, when reviewed, the Tsunami dream can be mistakenly dismissed as a night fantasy without relevance to the current warning signs given by the unseen patience Creator God of the universe.  If the people will not hear and repent, then the heavens and the earth will always hear the voice of the Lord and respond to His Righteous Word.  For the skeptical, the cumulative warning signs are even now being witnessed in the physical world today, as well as being seen in the heavens above.

The sorrows of sin in this world, reaps a flood of tears.

Warning: A great earthquake occurring under or near the seas potentiates the occurrence of every Tsunami, and as in every Tsunami, there is more than one great wave of destructive power.  The return flow of natural judgments from our own self serving sin's of wickedness will not cease until the whole world is consumed in its own choices that breeds the disruptive violence of catastrophic sin.  This Tsunami, triggered by the earth's upheaval, speaks of the variable forces of destruction that brings forth the return consequences of mankind's violence of sin. (For behold God's Lips are full of indignation, and His Tongue as a devouring fire; therefore God's Breath, is like an overflowing flood, and the flow of the flood shall reach to the midst of the neck, and will sift the nations with a sieve of vanity: For there is a bridle in the jaws of the people, causing them to err.) (See Isaiah 30 verse 27 thru 33.) The people of this present day, are like any stubborn mule or braying donkey that has a bit in its mouth to be driven by its satanic slave master into the briar bushes and thickets with dreadful consequences. (See 2nd Timothy 2 verse 25 thru 26.)

This universe is of moral substance created by the supremely moral God Almighty of all Goodness.  However, in the end, the non stop violence of humanity's sins in this world will spring back to judge all of humanity. For know this also, that in the last days, perilous times shall come.  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, being covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy: Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, without self control, savage, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the Power thereof: From such turn away.  Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the Truth: Men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.  Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the Truth. (See 2nd Timothy 3:1-8.)

The above prophetic scripture, when read in its full context within second Timothy chapter 3, will continue to warn the discerning soul of the artificial form of godliness that is present among us: Ever learning, but never able to come to the knowledge of the Truth. Men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the Faith. The whole of this scripture could be bearing witness to a Corinthian styled church of impotent flesh, led by men laden with sins of iniquitous unbelief, "Having a form of godliness, but denying the Power Thereof; therefore they are "reprobate concerning the Faith; from such turn away".  For they are vain men led by the flesh, who deny the Power of the Holy Spirit of God that when followed would produce true godliness. Therefore, there is no accountability to Holy God from this form of a self serving church that reveals its complicity with the world and perpetuates the violent works of human flesh:  Now the deeds of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, moral impurity, promiscuity, idolatry, sorcery, hatreds, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambitions, dissensions, factions, envy, drunkenness, carousing, and anything similar.  I have told you before and warn you again that those who practice such things will not inherit the Kingdom of God. (Galatians 5 verse 19 thru 21.) Who is Paul admonishing and warning again, if not the church of unbelief? (See also 1st Corinthians 6 verse 9 thru 10.)

Holy God Almighty is the God of the Living, and not the god of the dead! 

All who hate the Wisdom of the Only Eternal Almighty Lord God of the living, love death and they shall be consumed in their choice. (See Proverbs 8 verse 35 thru 36.) The choosing of the only God of the Living, the Creator of all things, should be the order of every beginning day.

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the Lord search the heart, I try the emotions of the mind, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. (Jeremiah 17:9-10.)

Nine Eleven, 2001

Night Vision - Warnings of *Whirlwinds of Judgment.

In these writings, there are two prophetic night visions that give warnings of coming Judgment, against the sins of the United States.  The events of Nine Eleven were prophetically visualized in night dreams in December of 1999, 21 months before the twin towers came down in complete destruction on the morning of September 11th, 2001. 

This catastrophic event was a warning to the U.S.A., and the whirlwinds in the dreams are a continuing harbinger of God's judgment against this nation's wickedness, and will remain an effectual witness to the world during the many perilous days that follow.  Humanity, with its self serving idolatry, can not serve both God and your own greed (mammon) at the same time ... you will either love the one and will hate the other. (See Revelation 3 verse 14 thru 20.) Any tower that man builds to magnify his stature, God will destroy.

*The Warning Signs of the Recent Blood Moons

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;  Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: For the powers of heaven shall be shaken. (See Luke 21:25-27.)

In this article we will present evidence that the Lord Jesus Christ celebrated the Feast of Unleavened Bread and the eating of the Passover on the evening of a Blood Moon. Later in the morning of that 5th day of the week, Jesus was judged and then He was crucified at mid-day of that same day.  During the crucifixion and the death of Jesus the Christ of God, there was a miraculous total eclipse of the sun that took place, and darkness covered the land.  With the finite mind of man, it is an impossibility that the two heavenly events could have taken place on the same day.  But with the Eternal God of Creation, nothing is impossible!

Remarkably, since Israel declared its self a nation in 1948, there have been a series of tetrad warning Blood Moons and solar eclipses that occurred during a 68 year period, and is now approaching 70 years.  In 1949,  the United States of Americas was the first Nation to recognize Israel as a governing Nation, and then shortly afterwards some other countries recognized the Nation of Israel.

On August 21, 2017, a total eclipse of the Sun was seen crossing the whole of the United States.  From the west to the east coast darkness passed over the land.  Its interesting that the present physical disasters, including storms and flooding in the USA,  are following the same shadowed outline as the eclipse.
