STATEMENT OF BELIEF IN
We believe in the only MIGHTY ONE, the Creator of shamayim (heaven) and olam (earth) whose name is YHWH (YAHWEH), DEBARIM - DEUTERONOMY 6:4 Shema (Hear), O Yisrael: YHWH our ABBA is Echad (one) Sovereign Ruler: ( 6:5 ) And you shall love YHWH your ABBA (Father) with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. We believe that the only true eternal personal NAMES of the ABBA (Father) and THE BEN (Son) are YHWH (Hebrew or Palio )(pronounced YAHWEH) and THE BEN (SON) YAHSHUA (YHWH IS OUR SALVATION). While the spelling is not important, the usage is. His name in the proper transliteration will give us the phonic of YAH-HAY-WAY which is pronounced YAHWEH. We stick to strict adherences to the pronunciation of HIS NAME.
YAHSHUA (salvation of YHWH)
We believe that YAHSHUA Ha MESSIYAH is THE BEN (the Son) of YHWH, THE ha MESSIYAH (the ANOINTED ONE of YHWH, the Eternal One in Whom all the fullness of YHWH dwells in bodily form; HE is the WORD of YHWH who was made flesh and lived among us, and we beheld HIS HONOR, the HONOR of the uniquely BEGOTTEN on of YHWH, full of UN-MERITED LOVE and TRUTH. (YOCHANAN - JOHN 1:1-14, QOLESAYAH-COLOSSIANS 2:9)
1) YAHSHUA Ha MESSIYAH is the BEN ADAM (SON of YHWH) MISHLE - MISHLE-PROVERBS 30:4 Who has ascended up into heaven, or descended? who has gathered the wind in HIS fists? who has bound the waters in a garment? who has established all the ends of the earth? what is HIS NAME, and what is HIS SON'S NAME, if you can tell?
2) MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 4:3 And when the tempter came to HIM, he said, If you are THE BEN (SON) of YHWH, command that these stones be made bread.
3) MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 27:43 HE trusted in YHWH; let HIM deliver HIM now, if HE will have HIM: for HE said, I am the SON of YHWH.
4) MARKUS - MARK 3:11 And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before HIM, and cried, saying, You are the Son of YAHWEH.
5)LUKAS - LUKE 1:35 And the malak answered and said unto her, Ha KODESH RUACH shall come upon you, and the power of the HIGHEST shall overshadow you: therefore also that KADOSH thing which shall be born of you shall be called the SON of YHWH.
6) YOCHANAN - JOHN 1:34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the SON of YHWH.
7) MA ' ASEH SHLICHIM - ACTS 8:37 And Philip said, If you believe with all your heart, you may. And he answered and said, I believe that YAHSHUA Ha MESSIYAH is the SON of YHWH.
8) ROMIYAH - ROMANS 1:4 And declared to be the SON of YHWH with power, according to Ha KODESH RUACH of , by the resurrection from the dead.
9) GALUTYAH - GALATIANS 2:20 I am IMPALED with ha MESSIYAH: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Ha MESSIYAH lives in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of YHWH, who loved me, and gave HIMSELF for me.
10) GILYAHNA - REVELATION 2:18 And unto the malak of the congregation in Thyatira write; These things says the Son of YHWH, who has his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and HIS feet are like fine brass.
These are some of the Scripture that we based the TRUTH that YAHSHUA ha MESSIYAH is the SON and not the ABBA. HE was birth of a VIRGIN by the WORD (seed) of YHWH. There are many SCRIPTURE VERSES that proves that Ha MESSIYAH is the SON whereby we have hope of the salvation of YHWH. You may write us, YAHWEH'S CONGREGATION..717 Miller Rd...Jefferson, SC 29718, or visit our website @ www.yahwehsword.org for the messages on THE SON and ABBA. Also the messages "Is YHWH the SON, or YAHSHUA Ha MESSIYAH the ABBA.
RUACH Ha KODESH (The Spirit)
We believe that the Ruach Ha Kodesh indwells all true believers to lead, guide, teach, comfort, and empower us to live a righteous life in all THE TRUTH of YHWH (Yochanan 14:26, 2 Timtheous 1:7). The Baptism of Ha Kodesh Ruach and fire is a gift from YHWH promised by YAHSHUA to all Believers and is received subsequent to the New Birth. (Matt 3:11, John 14:16-17). We believe in the operation of all gifts of the Ruach as enumerated in YHWH’S WORD. We embrace all the ministry of the Ruach Ha Kodesh (The Spirit)
YOCHANAN - JOHN 14:26 But the Comforter, which is Ruach Ha Kodesh, whom the ABBA will send in MY NAME, HE shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said to you.
TIMTHEOUS -2- TIMOTHY 1:7 For YHWH has not given us Ha Ruach of fear; but of power, and of ahava (love), and of a sound mind.
MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but HE that comes after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: HE shall baptize you with Ha Kodesh Ruach, and with fire.
YOCHANAN - JOHN
14:15 If you love me, keep
MY mitzvoth (commandments).
YOCHANAN - JOHN 14:16 And I will ask the ABBA, and HE shall give you another Comforter, that HE may abide with you forever;
YOCHANAN - JOHN 14:17 Even Ha Ruach of Emet (truth); whom the world cannot receive, because it sees HIM not, neither knows HIM: but you know HIM; for HE dwells with you, and shall be in you.
We believe that the TORAH (five books of Mosheh) is a comprehensive summary of YHWH’S foundational Commandments and Instructions, as found in the Scripture Covenants. (Ex 19 and 20, Deut 5, Jer 31:31-34, Heb 8:10, Matt 5:17-19). Obedience to the commands of the TORAH are required of all believers, for yeshua and for relationship with YHWH and our fellow man. When one comes to the know of the TORAH he/she will know that this is the power of YHWH to govern our lives.
SHEMOTH - EXODUS 19th and 20th chapters gives us the details of YHWH'S instructions. You can read it in the SCRIPTURE.
DEBARIM - DEUTERONOMY 5th chapter gives us great understanding of YHWH'S instruction.
YERMEYAH - JEREMIAH 31:31 Behold, the
days come, says YHWH, that I will make a New Covenant with the
house of Yisrael, and with the house of Yahudah:
YERMEYAH - JEREMIAH 31:32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their ahvot (fathers) in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which MY Covenant they broke, although I was an HUSBAND to them, says YHWH:
YERMEYAH - JEREMIAH 31:33 But this shall be the Covenant that I will make with the house of Yisrael; After those days, says YHWH, I will put MY TORAH in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their ABBA, and they shall be MY people.
YERMEYAH - JEREMIAH 31:34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know YHWH: for they shall all know ME, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, says YHWH: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
IBRIM - HEBREWS 8:10 For this is the Covenant that I will make with the house of Yisrael after those days, says YHWH; I will put MY TORAH into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them an ABBA, and they shall be to ME a people.
MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 5:17 Think not that
I am come to destroy the
TORAH, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.
MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 5:18 For truly I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the TORAH, till all be fulfilled.
We believe that the SCRIPTURE consisting of TORAH, Prophets and Writings (Tanakh) and the ReNewed Covenant are the Inspired, infallible and authoritative Word of YHWH. (II Tim. 3:16, I Thes. 2:13, II Peter 1:21). We believe that YAHSHUA Ha MESSIYAH taught all HIS true followers both Yahudim and non-Yahudim that all the precepts of written TORAH are eternally binding. YAHSHUA Ha MESSIYAH, never ever negated the TORAH, and expects and commands us to follow the TORAH (Mattityahu 5:17-18), so as to continually renew our love for HIM by our obedience. And that is based on this verse in SCRIPTURE: TEHILLIM - PSALMS 119:142 Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and your TORAH is the truth. We believe that the TRUTH of the TORAH will never change as the righteousness of YHWH will never change.
TIMTHEOUS -1- TIMOTHY 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of our Shabbat-guarding piety: HE was manifest in the flesh, declared right in Ha Ruach, seen by heavenly malakim, proclaimed among the nations, believed on in the world, received up into honor.
TESLONIQYAH -1- THESSALONIANS 2:13 For this cause also thank we YHWH without ceasing, because, when you received the Word of YHWH which you heard of us, you received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the Word of YHWH, which effectually works also in you that believe.
KEPHA -1- PETER 1:21 Who through HIM believe in YHWH, that raised HIM up from the dead, and gave him honor; that your emunah (faith) and hope might be in YHWH.
We believe that "all have sinned and come short of the honor of YHWH" ROMIYAH - ROMANS 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the splendor of YHWH. YAHSHUA Ha MESSIYAH, the Son of YHWH, was manifested to undo the work of Shatan, gave HIS life, and shed HIS blood to redeem and restore man back to YHWH. (Rom 5:14, Rom 3:10, Rom 3:23, I John 3:8). Yeshua is a gift of YHWH to man, it can not be separate from works and the TORAH, and is made operative by Ha Kodesh Ruach through emunah in YAHSHUA Ha MESSIYAH, producing works acceptable to YHWH. One may not earn, merit or keep this eternal yeshua by his own efforts. A new creation is the work of YHWH alone. (Eph 2:8-9, Rom 5 and 6). Careful study of the SCRIPTURE listed here will give you a better understanding of YHWH dealing with the the house of Yisrael.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and unsaved. The redeemed to everlasting joy in the presence of YHWH and the lost to eternal damnation and separation form YHWH. Without the RESURRECTION there is no hope in this life. This is a strong tenet of our DOCTRINE.
YOCHANAN - JOHN 5:28 Marvel not at this:
for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear
YOCHANAN - JOHN 5:29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
QORINTYAH -1- CORINTHIANS 15:12 Now if
Ha MESSIYAH be preached that HE rose from the dead, how say some
among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?
QORINTYAH -1- CORINTHIANS 15:13 But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Ha MESSIYAH not risen:
GILYAHNA - REVELATION 20:5 But the rest
of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the
GILYAHNA - REVELATION 20:6 Blessed and kodesh is he that has part in the first resurrection: on such the second death has no power, but they shall be kohenim of YHWH and of YAHSHUA Ha MESSIYAH, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
ROMIYAH - ROMANS 1:3 Concerning HIS
SON YAHSHUA Ha MESSIYAH our Master, which was made of the seed of David
according to the flesh;
ROMIYAH - ROMANS 1:4 And declared to be the SON of YHWH with power, according to Ha Ruach of pure set apartness, by the resurrection from the dead:
In obedience to YHWH'S command to assemble
ourselves together to worship, HIM, we seeks to provide a venue for all
believers in YAHSHUA Ha MESSIYAH to worship YHWH in Ruach
YOCHANAN - JOHN 4:23 But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the ABBA in ruach and in emet: for the ABBA seeks such to worship HIM.
YOCHANAN - JOHN 4:24 YHWH is a RUACH (Spirit): and they that worship HIM must worship HIM in the ruach and in the emet (truth). We seek to provide a place of study, fellowship, encouragement and support for the TRUE BELIEVERS seeking to “Come out of Babylon”.
We understand that returning to the Ancient Paths of the SCRIPTURE often results in rejection by family and friends who do not understand at this time. We offer refuge and support as the extended family of YHWH to all TRUE BELIEVERS. The family function is given by YHWH as an example of HIS relationship desires with HIS creation and thus is a vital aspect of our congregation. We seek to provide for the entire family as we grow together in knowledge and wisdom. YAHSHUA tells us who the family of YHWH is:
MARKUS - MARK 3:33 And HE answered them,
saying, Who is
MY mother, or MY brother?
MARKUS - MARK 3:34 And HE looked round about on them which sat about HIM, and said, Behold MY mother and MY brother!
MARKUS - MARK 3:35 For whosoever shall do the will of YHWH, the same is MY brother, and MY sister, and mother.
MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 12:48 But HE
answered and said to him that told
HIM, Who is MY mother? and who are MY brothers?
MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 12:49 And he stretched forth his hand toward HIS disciples, and said, Behold MY mother and MY brothers!
MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 12:50 For whosoever shall do the will of MY ABBA which is in heaven, the same is MY brother, and sister, and mother.
YHWH has called us to be in unity with HIM and those that respond to HIS call upon their lives, the remnant of all Yisrael. We are to separate ourselves from the things of this world as we offer ourselves as living sacrifices to YHWH alone.
We do teach a submerging into water as YAHSHUA commanded the disciples to go into all nations and submerge into water. Also the infilling of YHWH'S RUACH. There is only ONE NAME that we are immersed in and that is THE NAME of YHWH. In that NAME you will find the authority of HIS SON'S NAME, YAHSHUA that gave us the authority by the power of Ha KODESH to fulfill this COMMAND given by YAHSHUA. In order to obey what is stated below you must know THE ABBA'S NAME. The word "father", or "son" is not a NAME. We must know the ABBA'S NAME. HIS NAME is YHWH pronounced YAHWEH.
MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 28:18 And YAHSHUA
came and spoke unto them, saying, All power is given unto
ME in heaven and in earth.
MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 28:19 Go you therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them IN THE NAME of the ABBA, and of the SON, and of the RUACH Ha KODESH:
MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. So be it, May it be fulfilled.
GIFTS OF YHWH'S RUACH
We do believe that all the gifts of the work of the ministry is important according to the SCRIPTURE:
QORINTYAH -1- CORINTHIANS 12:4 Now there are
diversities of gifts, but the same
QORINTYAH -1- CORINTHIANS 12:5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Master.
QORINTYAH -1- CORINTHIANS 12:6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same YHWH which works all in all.
QORINTYAH -1- CORINTHIANS 12:7 But the manifestation of Ha Ruach is given to every man to profit withal.
QORINTYAH -1- CORINTHIANS 12:8 For to one is given by Ha Ruach the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Ruach;
QORINTYAH -1- CORINTHIANS 12:9 To another emunah by the same Ruach; to another the gifts of healing by the same Ruach;
QORINTYAH -1- CORINTHIANS 12:10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
QORINTYAH -1- CORINTHIANS 12:11 But all these works that one and the selfsame Ruach, dividing to every man severally as HE will.
EPHSIYAH - EPHESIANS 4:8 Wherefore he saith,
HE ascended up on high, HE led captivity captive, and gave
gifts unto men.
EPHSIYAH - EPHESIANS 4:9 Now that HE ascended, what is it but that HE also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?
EPHSIYAH - EPHESIANS 4:10 HE that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that HE might fill all things.
EPHSIYAH - EPHESIANS 4:11 And HE gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
EPHSIYAH - EPHESIANS 4:12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Ha MESSIYAH:
EPHSIYAH - EPHESIANS 4:13 Till we all come in the unity of the emunah, and of the knowledge of the SON of YHWH, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Ha MESSIYAH:
We do believe All SCRIPTURE according to this statement in:
TIMTHEOUS -2- TIMOTHY 3:16 All SCRIPTURE is given by inspiration of YHWH, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
We do understand that at the time of this statement being made there was no SCRIPTURE, but the TORAH, PROPHETS, TEHILLIM, and the TANAKH. All of these writings are part of the SCRIPTURE as well as the inspiration of the ReNewed Covenant Writings.
We believe that all common translations of today are in
reality 'interpretations' and contain error. Some contain deliberate deception
and many have been re-worded to support contain doctrines of men. Therefore, we
believe in the diligent study of the Set Apart SCRIPTURE in
their original language, along with the use of many various translations
(interpretations) for comparative study, and in the use of all available
resources for reference.
We believe that when we seek truth, YHWH will lead us to obtain truth and to find the correct understanding, and revelation of our CREATOR ABBA YHWH and HIS SON YAHSHUA Ha MESSIYAH, our Redeemer, and King. We reject all teachings contrary to those defined in the Set Apart SCRIPTURE. However, we believe that there is a place for reason and for conjecture when supported by the Set Apart SCRIPTURE, by recorded History, or when derived from the physical record in scientific form as can be found in YHWH'S creation.
We believe that nowhere in SCRIPTURE that YHWH commanded us to change the SHABBAT from the seventh day to the first day of the week cycle of HIS creation. SCRIPTURE never in anyway dismiss the SHABBAT from the Commandments of YHWH.
SHEMOTH - EXODUS 20:8 Remember the SHABBAT
DAY, to keep it SET APART.
SHEMOTH - EXODUS 31:14 You shall keep the SHABBAT therefore; for it is KODESH unto you: every one that defiles it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever does any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.
DEBARIM - DEUTERONOMY 5:12 Keep the SHABBAT DAY to SET it APART, as YHWH your ABBA has commanded you.
CONTENTS OF SOME OF OUR STATEMENT OF BELIEF
1) VIRGIN BIRTH OF YAHSHUA Ha MESSIYAH.................MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 1:23 See, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call HIS name Emanuel-YAH, which being interpreted is, YHWH with us.
2) KEEPING THE 7 MAJOR FEAST DAYS OF YHWH
SCRIPTURE affirm that the Passover memorial begins at dusk at the start of the 14th day of Abib (month of green ears of barley), Exodus 12:6; Leviticus 23:5; Numbers 28:16; Deuteronomy 16:1. The Passover represents two significant events—the death of the firstborn of Egypt and the passing of the death malak, and the impalement of our Savior on the torture stake, Exodus 12; John 18-19. YAHSHUA partook of the Passover at twilight on the fourteenth day of Abib with His Apostles, Matthew 26:17-29; Mark 14:12-25, thus fulfilling the TORAH. We no longer sacrifice a lamb at Passover, but partake of the prescribed emblems, which represent YAHSHUA'S body (unleavened bread, matzoth) and blood (unfermented grape juice, the pure blood of the grape, Deut. 32:14), Luke 22:12-23, 1Corinthians 11:23-26.
2. Feast of Unleavened Bread
SCRIPTURE affirms The Feast of Unleavened Bread begins on the 15th day of the month of Abib and extends through the 21st day of that same month, Exodus 12:15-18, Leviticus 23:6; Numbers 28:17. The first and last days of the seven-day observance are observed as high Shabbat Days, Exodus 12:16, Leviticus 23:7-8, Numbers 28:18, 25. During this time we are to worship YHWH and examine ourselves, removing any pride, sin, falsity or false doctrine from our lives, Exodus 5:1, 1Corinthians 5:8. We are to remove all leaven products from our property and eat unleavened bread with our meals for all seven days of the Feast, Exodus 12:15, 18, Leviticus 23:6.
3. Feast of Weeks
SCRIPTURE affirms that the Feast of Weeks or Pentecost is the third of the seven annual observances. This Feast is to be calculated from within the Feast of Unleavened Bread. We are to start the count from the day after the weekly Shabbat that falls within the Feast of Unleavened Bread, and count seven complete weeks, Leviticus 23:15-16. On this day the Re-New Covenant Assembly received the outpouring of Ha Kodesh Ruach, Acts 2.
4. Feast of Trumpets
SCRIPTURE affirms that the Feast of Trumpets is a High Shabbat, a memorial of blowing trumpets, that falls on the first day of the seventh Hebrew month, Leviticus 23:23-25, Numbers 29:1-6.
5. Day of Atonement
SCRIPTURE affirms that the Day of Atonement comes on the 10th day of the month of Tishri. On this day no manner of work is to be done, it is a strict Shabbat to YHWH. On this High Shabbat we are to afflict ourselves by abstaining from food and drink, Leviticus 16; 23:26-32; Numbers 29:7-11.
6. Feast of Tabernacles
SCRIPTURE affirms that the Feast of Tabernacles or the Feast of Ingathering starts on the 15th day of the seventh scriptural month and advances through the 21st day of the month. The Feast of Tabernacles is a seven-day Feast, which has a High Day on the 15th day of Tishri, Exodus 23:16; 34:22; Leviticus 23:33-36, 39-43; Numbers 29:12-34; Deuteronomy 16:13-15. YAHSHUA set the example for all mankind by observing the Feast in the Re-Newed Covenant. Further, we are told that all people in the Millennium will observe the Feast of Tabernacles, Zechariah 14:16-19; John 7:2, 37.
7. Last Great Day
SCRIPTURE affirms that the Last Great Day immediately follows the Feast of Tabernacles and comes on the 22nd day of Tishri as a High Shabbat. On this day no manner of work is to be done. This special day commemorates the closing of the yearly feast cycle, Leviticus 23:36; Numbers 29:35-38.
WE BELIEVE THAT ALL THE FEAST DAYS ARE IMPORTANT TO YHWH AND MUST BE KEPT IN COMPLYING WITH THE TORAH TEACHING OF YHWH.
3) Clean Food Laws
SCRIPTURE affirms that YHWH'S dietary food Laws were not annulled in the Re-New Covenant, but remain for HIS Re-New Covenant believers as well in this dispensation : Leviticus 11; Deuteronomy 14; Isaiah 65:4; 66:17; 2Corinthians 6:17.
4) Ministers (Speaking) in
SCRIPTURE affirms that only men are permitted to speak before the assembly, and that Shaul admonishes women to remain silent during formal worship services, 1Corinthians 14:34-35; 1Timothy 2:11-12. ONLY MEN CAN HOLD THE ROLE OF ANY AUTHORITY IN THE ASSEMBLY.
5) Head coverings
SCRIPTURE affirms that all women in the assembly are to have their heads covered with a type of covering during worship, and that all men are to leave their heads uncovered, 1Corinthians 11:4-10.
SCRIPTURE affirms that sin is the transgression of YHWH'S TORAH, 1John 3:4. Without the TORAH sin does not exist, Romans 3:20; 7:7-12, and that the penalty of sin is death, Romans 6:23; Hebrews 9:27, and we realize that all have sinned and come short of the honor of YHWH, Romans 3:23.
7) THERE ARE SOME TENETS OF SCRIPTURE TRUTH THAT WE BASE OUR WORSHIP OF YHWH UPON. WE DO HOPE THAT THESE TENET OF OUR BELIEF WILL HELP YOU TO UNDERSTAND WHAT WE STAND FOR.
Pastor David Roberts
