Searching for Truth

My Bible Study series will resume soon.

As my readers might guess, I’m kind of hung up on Bible truth.  The more I learn about the Bible the more I see how more and more believers in Jesus Christ are getting caught in traps of deception.  I’ve seen many web sites of people thinking they are protecting the truth, when they are actually protecting their own deception while fighting other people’s deceptions.  The worst of it is that they don’t even know it or know how to test the spirit of what they are doing.

I sometimes feel like I’m beating my head against a wall in trying to get people to understand that Christianity is in deep trouble.  My Bible oriented books, blog, and website are my chosen ways of trying to turn this deadly trend around.

The following is the main content of the Home page for my website, http://www.fireofthelord.com.  I’ve decided to bring it to my blog readers for a further taste of what I do.

“Dear friends and family in Christ, this Bible Ministry belongs to and is administered by YaHavah and Jesus. This is YaHavah’s ministry and he is calling for other messengers — common people like myself — to be his messengers and disciples. He doesn’t need an advertising budget, he needs you.

Be Bible Literate
The Bible and Spirit of YaHavah
Teach Truth, Integrity, and Respect

“Only the Bible and Spirit are trustworthy sources of truth. The word, “God” is ambiguous. It is used to denote any kind of supposed deity. Without a personal name to specify who is being discussed in a doctrine, it is impossible to understand doctrines being taught. No doctrine containing the word, “God”, can be tested with another doctrine containing the word “God.”

“FYI…the Holy Spirit has a name; it is YHVH (YaHavah) because the Bible says YaHavah is Spirit.

  • YHVH Elohim is our one and only Creator (Gen. 1-1-5; Jn. 1:1-5)
  • YHVH is Spirit (Gen. 1:2, 6:3; Prov. 1:23; Jn. 1:4)
  • YHVH’s Spirit is the true light (Jn. 1:4)
  • Everything was created according to YHVH’s plan and reasoning (Is. 14:24; Rom. 11:33-36)
  • YHVH spoke and Jesus was conceived, YHVH’s words spoke into being the only begotten son of YHVH (Jn. 1:14)
  • Jesus was anointed in the Spirit of YHVH to be witness of same. (See the list of references for the anointing at the end of the introduction in John’s Gospel in the Word of YHVH Bible)

“The Bible is the foremost resource of doctrine by which to live, and YaHavah is the foremost teacher of Bible doctrine. A person can learn more about life from the Bible than any other book ever written or from any preacher, teacher, life coach, or psychologist, yet each of these do have their purpose.

“All Church doctrine should be perfectly aligned with the Bible. Even so, there is an abundance of error not recognized by those who err.  Christians for Life Ministries (CFLM) takes to heart the Body’s cry for YaHavah’s truth and restoration of first century Christian doctrines. Let’s strive together to bring Church doctrine back into alignment with the Bible.

YaHavah promised to be our teacher, counselor, and protector. BELIEVE IT!

“CFLM strives for “One heart and one mind for all in YaHavah and Jesus”

Pray for your heart to open to know his great love,
Pray for your mind to open to know his great wisdom.”

On the Home page, I also have a few article and page links titled:

***************************

In 2015, I asked a person I was communicating with by e-mail for a brief statement of his thoughts concerning my website, since he had visited it several times and downloaded my Bible and many of my books and articles.

E. of TX, 2015 responded:  “As far as I can remember you have not accepted the responsibility or challenge of being my spiritual teacher. This being the case, don’t ask me to ‘judge’ your beliefs. . . . Surely you know that your doctrines are unusual to say the least. I know of no group of Christians, not one, that embrace your understanding of Christianity.”

My response: More’s the pity E of TX, But thank you for your candor. You stated you were not a judge of my beliefs, yet broadly judged them to be in error on the basis of what others believe. Even so, some of what you said is true. The Bible’s image of Christianity does not agree with every aspect of the worldview of Christianity. You did exactly what I have said many times in my writings that should not be done; you tested one person’s doctrines by your own and other’s doctrines. Not once did you indicate that you used the Bible to test the spirit of what I believe and what I write. Not once did you indicate that what I say agrees or disagrees with the Bible, only with what yourself and others believe.

I look at my website Home page and, recalling our many discussions, I can see his point of view on my doctrines being different from other Christians.  They are, and for a very good reason.  What I see from the Bible’s perspective is that my observation of most Christians in person and online, don’t know what testing the spirit means.  Because of this simple Bible concept, false doctrines have crept into every aspect of  Bible truths.  The response from “E of TX” proves he and most Christians don’t understand the biblical meaning of testing the spirit.  They don’t have a clue of the Bible’s teaching on the seven spirits of YaHavah and their opposites.  Proof of this observation is in a simple Google search for “what are the seven spirits?”  There are many non-committal answers to that question. Some mention Isaiah 11:1-2, then offer alternative answers to what Isaiah’s seven spirits are. None to this date, have connected other anointing prophecies to it, nor have I ever seen any biblical explanation of the purpose for the seven spirits.

Allow me to give another example of my difference from other Christians.

The first word in Section I of my “Glossary of Common Terms,” is anointing.

ANOINTING
The prophecies of Jesus’ anointing and the fullness of the seven-spirits of YHVH (Daniel 9:24; Isaiah 11:1-5) was fulfilled with the appearance of a descending dove of peace as the visible image of the Spirit of YHVH. (Matthew 3:16) This is the same infilling experienced by true and repentant believers. (Acts 2:1-4) The Spirit of YHVH comes to show the way into all Truth. The purpose for anointing is regeneration or rebirth in the Spirit of YHVH. (John 16:13)

Jesus is the core of YHVH’s plan of salvation, and He is, as it says in the Old Testament, YHVH with us by the anointing omnipresence of the Spirit of YHVH. YHVH with us or as commonly stated God with us was manifested at Jesus’ baptism and on the Day of Pentecost after Jesus ascended into heaven. (Revelation 5:6) All the following references explain the anointing, its purpose, and its fulfillment:

  1. Psalm 110:4—Jesus was consecrated as High Priest forever in the order of Melchizedek (Hebrew 7:20-28)
  2. Isaiah 11:1-2—The promised anointing of Jesus in the seven-spirits of YaHavah
  3. Daniel 9:24—Daniel prophesied the anointing of Jesus who YaHavah identified as the Holy one
  4. Matthew 3:16-17—Fulfillment of the anointing represented by the descending dove and voice of YHVH.
  5. John 3:5-8—Jesus told his disciples that one must be born again in the spirit to see the Kingdom of YHVH.
  6. Revelation 5:6— 6—And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the Four Living Creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven-spirits of YHVH sent forth into all the earth. 7—And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. (Acts 2:1-4; Isaiah 11:1)
  7. Acts 2:1-4— The manifestation of the Comforter by the seven spirit anointing was evidenced by a wind in the upper room and flames over the heads of the twelve disciples. One must be born again in the Spirit of YaHavah to see the Kingdom of YHVH.

Jesus repeatedly told his disciples he had to go to be glorified before the promised Spirit (Comforter) could come to them.

Jesus ascended to heaven to receive the Kingdom of YHVH and release the outpouring of the seven spirit anointing to all who accept the whole truth of Jesus Christ. The timing is the ten days between his ascension into heaven and the Day of Pentecost.

How else could the following be true:

“YaHavah created man to have fellowship with himself. Fellowship implies likeness; the Bible teaches that YaHavah created man in his likeness, a spirit being. Adam started his life having access to YaHavah’s wisdom and knowledge, which he used in naming all the plants and animals. Fellowship with YaHavah also implies his counsel and understanding. The human spirit must have YaHavah’s counsel and understanding to learn how to live by his standards. Adam lived a good life under YaHavah’s standards, until another influence tempted him and he failed to fear YaHavah. The strength to overcome Satan’s temptations is in the Spirit of YaHavah through Jesus. This paragraph demonstrates the grace of YaHavah in bestowing true believers with his seven-spirits so they can live in his righteousness and overcome the sin imposed upon humankind by Adam’s error.”

Please note that the bolded words are the seven spirits of YaHavah named in Isaiah 11:1-2, used in Proverbs 8 and used often by the Apostles in their teaching.

I attended church and church functions regularly for nearly thirty years, until I could no longer bear listening to false teaching mingled in some truth, or to be avoided for what I believe.  I believe the untainted truth of the Bible.

THE FULL ARMOR OF YHVH
(Ephesians 6:10-23) 10—Finally, my brethren, be strong in YHVH, and in the power of his might. 11—Put on the whole armor of YHVH, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12—For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spirit wickedness in high [places].

13—Wherefore take to you the whole armor of YHVH, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14—Stand therefore, having your loins girded with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; (Isaiah 11:5) 15—and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16—above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith you shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17—And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of Yah’s Spirit, which is the word of YHVH: (Isaiah 59:17) 18—praying always with all prayer and supplication in Yah’s Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; 19—and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20—for which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak. . . . 23—Peace [be] to the brethren, and (agape) love with faith, from YHVH the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ., 24—and grace [be] with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.

The Full Armor of YHVH

  • Belt of truth
  • Breastplate of righteousness
  • Feet fitted with readiness from the gospel of peace
  • Shield of faith
  • Helmet of salvation
  • Sword of (YaHavah’s) Spirit—Word of YHVH
  • Pray always for the saints

This is the same thing I have been writing about for thirty-nine years. Yet, I am told I need to dumb my writing down so people can understand it, or, as the person in Texas stated, “Surely you know that your doctrines are unusual to say the least. I know of no group of Christians, not one, that embrace your understanding of Christianity”

In the Bible, Christ means anointedChristian means one who is anointed in the Spirit of YaHavah. Most dictionaries give follower of Christ as the primary meaning. None that I have seen give the definition of Christian as one who is anointed.  The anointing is the same as being born again.  To be anointed is to receive the approval of YaHavah.  He isn’t going to anoint someone who is taught lies about his truth.

I guess that does make me different, but a difference I can live with and look at myself in the mirror knowing I test everything by the Bible and Spirit of YaHavah.

I strive to write about Bible truth in as simple a manner as I can. I know many will not understand it because that is what the Bible says, too. I think the reason people might have a problem understanding what I write comes down to a lack of interest in the topics.  My topics are Bible truths that are not being taught in the Churches.   If a topic is not in the trend of the worldview of Christianity, then it is of no interest.  I believe the only solution is for more to listen to the personal urging of the Spirit to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior and to seek the true anointing in the Spirit.  My article on “What is Christianity” may be some help.

I need the help of my readers. Tell me if there is something you do not understand or a critique you might want to make.  Writers want to be heard and understood; so does YaHavah and Jesus.

About Mary Lewis *

Retired senior citizen and Christian writer My ministry in writing is to encourage all people to learn how to test the spirit of what they see, hear, and think to see if it is from YaHavah, our creator, before they act on it. There is always something to learn about YaHavah and Jesus and never risk becoming a know-it-all.
