the old days
Christians were heard telling the "unbelievers" to...
TURN or BURN!
repentance for religious folk means to
"change your mind"
and become a
A lot of people
are call themselves "Believers"...
because they've "changed their minds...."
BUT WHAT HAS really CHANGED?
In the Jewish world Teshuva
(Repentance) functionally means to
live as a Jew, observe Torah,
daven (pray) and do the traditions.
taught by your Orthodox, Conservative or Reform Rabbis)
Christian theology is so "complex" that if you ask any three Christians what
"repentance" is, you could get four or more
However, from the very early days of Yeshua's ministry
"REPENT FOR THE KINGDOM
OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND"
of Christians simply feel better about themselves for
claiming that "Jesus is Lord of their lives", but when
we ask simple basic questions about HOW Jesus is their
Lord, what we discover is that no... a RELIGION about
Jesus is Lord of their lives. Jesus in fact is an
embarrassment for the majority of Christians. I'll give you plenty of examples but first, when surrendering
our lives to Y'shua (Jesus) the first thing we are
called to turn from is... from breaking the
TEN COMMANDMENTS. Let's take a quick tour at the TEN COMMANDMENTS.
1) I AM YAHWEH
commandment is not a statement, suggestion
or revelation. This commandment
instructs us to recognize Yahweh is Adonai
(LORD) Master, Creator, Architect of Life,
the Divine Spiritual Being Who animates all
other spirits and physical properties within
the Universe He Created by His Word.
Yahweh means The Self-Existent One.
YHWH is not dependant
upon anything or anyone for His existence,
everything is dependant upon Yahweh.
2) No other gods
Religion itself has become a god for many
people in Judaism, Christianity and Islam.
Religion and it's leaders have put
themselves in the place of Yahweh.
Rabbinical Judaism openly admits that the
interpretation of Torah is more important
that the Torah itself. Many Christians
believe in a god who tells them that the
Commandments of Yahweh have been nailed to
the cross. Muslims believe that Allah
has given them permission to kill innocent
people. Religion makes other gods for
itself, a very clever and cunning deception
of the enemy.
3) DON'T TAKE THE NAME OF YHWH IN VAIN
The Name of
Yahweh is vigorously avoided by Jews and
Christians. The Name
of Yahweh for most Christians is foreign or
"too religious", they have theology that
tells them that nobody knows how to
pronounce Yahweh's Name. Theologians
have replaced the Name of Yahweh with titles
like LORD and God. Rabbinical Jews
tell people that YaHWeH is
"too holy" to pronounce, they play games and use haShem (the Name), Adonai, or
Elokim rather than show fidelity and respect
for the Name of YHWH. Such religious thinking
gives Rabbis and Pastors authority over the Name
of Yahweh, they put
themselves in a higher position than the
Word of Yahweh according to religion.
4) KEEP THE SHABBAT
Elohim rested on the 7th.
Shabbat begins at sunset on Friday night and
goes to sunset at the end of Shabbat. The
Seventh Day Shabbat is a memorial of
Creation. As the world was without form
and void and darkness was over the earth, so
does Shabbat begin with a dark period and go
through a light period and back into a dark
period. Seven represents
completion, it represents Covenant
and a Seal for YHWH's people.
The Christian world says Shabbat is "too Jewish", they opted
to replace Shabbat with Sun-day. Christians
say that Paul the Apostle changed the
Shabbat from the 7th Day to the 1st day of the
week, but the New Testament and history says
they lie. Early church founders were
pagan sun worshippers who used syncretism to attract large numbers of
was made into an easier fit for the average
pagan. The Shabbat of YHWH is eternal,
the Prophets of YHWH foretell of the
Shabbat observance in the Millennium and the New Jerusalem. Those who don't
observe the Shabbat transgress the Word of
Yahweh by their religious traditions.
5) HONOR FATHER AND MOTHER
and Christian leaders will advise young converts
fathers and mothers if that's what it takes to follow their religions.
Catholics call the head of their church the
"pope" (father) which dishonors the Heavenly
Father. "And call no man your father
upon the earth: for one is your Father,
which is in heaven." Matthew 23:9
Catholics elevate their religious traditions
as their god.
6) DO NOT MURDER
The religious worlds are notorious for slandering
and libeling those who stand against
their false religious traditions.
Rabbis, Christians, Pastors and Evangelists who are
exposed for their lies and worthless
unprofitable teachings are famous for their campaigns
to diminish the souls of those who expose
them. Rabbis murder the name and reputation of
Jews who they disagree with, they spill
their blood by voracious attacks
against those who are not convinced about
the legitimacy of rabbinical hierarchy.
By their tongues they are murderers, they have no shame
or consciousness, their
tradition says murder is ok when it is a
matter of keeping up the religious traditions.
7) DO NOT COMMIT ADULTERY
are routinely given license to divorce unbelieving spouses,
even when spouses are not culpable for
divorce. Jewish men and woman are easily given a get
if they married an non-Jewish person and
want out of their vows. In the
both the Christian and Jewish world you can
find a Pastor or Rabbi who will do
anything you want if you support their
synagogue or church, the same as the
Mafioso who get pardon's by
their Catholic priests. Yeshua teaches that anyone
who is culpable as an adulterer will not
enter into the Kingdom of Elohim, he stated
that divorce is a product of a hardened heart against YHWH
and unless the marriage failed because of
adultery if a person will be culpable for
being an adulterer if they remarry, but
religion says it's ok to divorce.
8) DO NOT STEAL
the Western world Christians and Jews
spend over 95% of their annual
revenues on themselves, their buildings,
their own programs and their entertainment
and comfortable living.
YHWH teaches us in Torah that a part of all we have is
to be laid up for the widow, fatherless and
those who have fallen on hard times due to
circumstances beyond their control, but "believers"
prefer to donate to their own religious
causes. Pastors and Priests steal from
Yahweh's people to build big crystal
cathedrals and edifices to their gods of
9) DO NOT LIE
of the truth. The religious world
marginalizes truth on all levels,
diminishing the call of righteousness that Mashiyach Yeshua
gave his people to walk
in. The biggest lie of the Christian
world is that a person can never be righteous,
they are sinners who can only be justified
in their sins.
This teaching is evil, it is haSatan's spin
against the truth, yet
it is the gospel message for the vast
majority of Christians.
10) DO NOT COVET
and Pastors live on the cutting edge of
covetousness, they demand high standards of living as the
"blessed" and "successful" ones
congregations. Pastors and
Evangelists argue that they have to
outwardly show prosperity so others will be attracted to their gospels.
Some have visions to convert the world
and beg for money to fly private jets and command huge amounts of
cash, because of their self
importance and covetousness, which has
become an acceptable "attribute" within
the religious world... it is now seen as
being a major component of a "successful"
Do you think the 10 commandments
have been diminished in importance since YHWH first Wrote Them With
His Finger? Most Christians do. Religion
that "theology" is able to define the truth in such a
way that you don't have to keep the Commandments.
However, Christianity doesn't stop there, many
Christians will gossip and slander the family members,
church members and friends who begin restoring the TEN
COMMANDMENTS into their lives. Carnally minded
Christians call Law Abiding people "legalists" and scorn
them by suggesting that they are trying to work their
way to heaven for delighting in Yahweh's Commandments.
It is a wicked and evil "church" that teaches repentance
only means to "change your mind". The
truth of the matter is that Repent means to turn from sin and Observe Torah.
If a person does not have a very deep remorse
for their sin and a child-like willingness to obey YHWH
and "follow the
Lamb wheresoever he goeth", they have not entered
into the Kingdom of Heaven. They have not surrendered their carnal
nature over for the spiritual man to reign over their
weak flesh. They have only dressed up the carnal man
with a religious costume.
After serving as both a Pastor and Rabbi I know what it is like to have people asking
me for assurance
of their salvation and meeting many who want to make
things right with Yahweh. I know how
easy it is to steer a person after they've hit rock bottom
and been sifted into a piece of bread because of
their rebellion and sins. I know what the Pastors and
Rabbis are doing, rather than enter into the Kingdom
themselves and surrender their lives to Y'shua, the
religious leaders offer a religious solution, religion
is based on a demonic mandate. Pastors and Rabbis have NO FEAR of YHWH,
many are are not personally convinced that YHWH exists, so they feed
people with the religious traditions that their
peers taught them, comforting people in their sins rather
than helping them transform into the Image of Elohim,
as Paul said, Messiah in you the hope of Glory!
Religious men act as though YHWH is an abstract idea,
that He is not the same
Yesterday, Today and Forever and that His WORD changes
according to modernism.
Religious leaders define the Kingdom of Elohim according
to their intellectual ideas and the imaginations that
are inspired by the enemy of Mashiyach. YHWH gave us His Word,
but haSatan turned it into various religions about His
A wedding symbolizes Yeshua receiving His people
as His Bride (perfection), his people are having
washed in blood
so they will become white (righteous) and acceptable to
the Father. Herein
lies the spin of "the Believer" in thinking that
"Yeshua or Jesus did it all", so the Believer has
only to intellectually "Believe" but...
Faith demands the action of obedience.
observance, keeping and delight of the Commandments of YHWH.
is written upon the heart by the Ruach haKodesh,
Commandments of Yahweh are not burdensome.
"beliefs" and theology of Christo-Paganism is
that Yeshua (Jesus) became the doormat for their sin,
that is a Luciferian theology. Yeshua came to
introduce us to the Nature of the Father. Yeshua
Commanded Judgment, Mercy, and Faith, but the false
Church is embarrassed to uphold righteous values that
have long been established by the Word of YHWH as His Eternal attributes of
the Malchut Elohim.
To "repent" is to make Teshuva,
to turn to YHWH and to Keep His
Commandments. Repent is to be sorrowful for sin and make certain we stop sinning.
We are to invite the Ruach haKodesh (Set Apart Spirit)
to transform our lives into the Image of Elohim.
We are to become new creations.
To repent is to see our need
for Mercy and recognize the shame of sin and not
bring more shame upon ourselves and others because of
against Yahweh. For those who do not
repent, but go through the religious motions, the blood of Yeshua was offered in vain, woe to those who take the Name of YHWH and His Mashiyach in
vain because of their religious traditions.
"Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of
Mashiyach, let us go on unto perfection; not laying
again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and
of faith toward Elohim, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and
of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead,
and of eternal judgment. And this will we do, if
YHWH permit. For it is impossible for those who
were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly
gift, and were made partakers of the Ruach HaKodesh, And
have tasted the good Word of Elohim, and the powers of
the world to come, If they shall fall away, to
renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to
themselves the Son of Elohim afresh, and put Him to an
open shame. For the earth which drinks in the rain
that comes often upon it, and brings forth herbs meet
for them by whom it is dressed, receives blessing from
Elohim: But that which bears thorns and briers is
and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be
There is no potential in accepting a new cutting edge "doctrine" or "theology" for
your salvation, even if it's the TRUTH!!! Doctrine
can't save. However religion uses the Name of
Yahweh, or Yeshua or Yahshua or Jesus to endorse their false
man-made religions. Religion is not discipleship. "Religious traditions" are dead works that Yeshua taught against, they are
fashioned in a manner so that a person cannot repent.
People are not allowed to return to Yahweh because it would be an embarrassment
toward the pastor and other members of the religious congregations.
The tradition of making
one's doctrine the focus of "belief" is paganism.
True Faith is a LIVING FAITH TOWARDS Yahweh Elohim
through His Mashiyach Y'shua.
It is mostly religious pride in Christian people that restricts them from the
ability to repent! When a
person realizes the nature of their pride, they can be assured
that the Ruach of YHWH is revealing Himself, these things doesn't happen unless one is
recognizing the invitation of the Set Apart Spirit of
Yahweh into the
Kingdom of Heaven.
There is nothing
you or I can do or say to a proud religious carnal
person who has deceived themselves into trusting in
their own religion for salvation, except
suggest they pray and ask for a spirit of humility and
appreciation for the Life YHWH has given.
Repentance is the right thing
to do and you will know how deeply entrenched false
religion is when you begin to obey the Word of Yahweh.
NOW is the acceptable day of salvation, now is the time
from the churches and synagogues and seek YHWH and His
Mashiyach Yeshua. The religious systems of the world are Babylon, they function on the premise
that everyone can have what they want like the carnally
minded world, if you just believe.
What a travesty! What a deception!
Repent means to
turn from the way the world is going and don't make any
more excuses for your sin. The beginning of
a relationship with Yahweh starts with repentance.
"From that time Yeshua began to preach, and to say,
Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." Matthew 4:17 The Ruach haKodesh has
never stopped preaching everlasting message, the
question is whether we've been able to hear from the
Father and turn to Him.
"But when the king came in to behold the guests, he saw
there a man who had not on a wedding-garment: and
he said unto him, Friend, how did you get in without a
wedding-garment? And he was speechless. Then
the king said to the servants, Bind him hand and foot,
and cast him out into the outer darkness; there shall be
the weeping and the gnashing of teeth. For many
are called, but few have chosen."
be with you,
Baruch Ben Daniel
