In the majority of English bibles that you see in today's society , you will see the word "church" is used as a rendering for the Greek word "Ekklesia. This is an error in translation, the Greek word "Ekklesia" means " out calling, and is also in English in reference to an "Assembly,"
such as "a meeting," or an "out gathering". In Hebrew, the word translated "Congregation" or "Assembly" is Qahal. This little peace of information is very key for many reasons, and because of the lack of effort put into correcting this mistranslation, the people have been deceived into believing something that never existed.What is untold to the people is that, when the Masoretes which is a Jewish faction, got their hand on our Hebrew text, one of their purposes was to replace the chosen people of the Most High Israel, with a new term representing a new body of people, in which that term is the word "church".
This word along with the word "Christian", were instituted as replacements in the New Testament (Covenant) for Israel, as where in the Old Testament (Covenant), the word Church and Christian never existed. The words that were used in regards to the chosen people of the Most High, were the words "Congregation", and "Assembly". When you search the word of the Most High, you'll find the big difference in word usage, such as the word Church is mentioned 111 times in the New Testament (Covenant), and 0 Times in the Old Testament. Then upon further examination, you'll discover that Israel is mentioned 73 times in the New Testament (Covenant), but 2,220 times in the Old Testament (Covenant). Now if the "Church" as it is promoted in this society, was so important, how come the Most High never mentioned it to his people? Simply because its not of his fashion, so lets examine where this word "Church" comes from and what it really means.
The word "church" is from kuriakon or kyriakon in Greek, but it is known in Scotland as "kirk," in Germany as "Kirche," and in the Netherlands as "kerk." It means a building (the house of Kurios, or house of the Lord), in which in 1 Corinthians 8:5 it says that there are many lords, in which the custom of the Pagans was the worship of Sun Gods and reverence of them as being Lords. So refering to the church as the house of the Lord, is not denoting what Lord, because the meaning never did, so the people today have no idea they referring to an idol god. The word Kirche is similar to the Hebrew word (kikkar) Rkk, meaning a disk or cicle thus meaning Sun Worship. The Sun was worshipped as Baal or Lord by a full circle of pagans, which is why pagans worshipped on the first day of the week, Sun-day, as those claiming to be christians are doing today unaware that they are actually pagans.
The word Church is found in the Anglo Saxon root word 'Circe', a minor goddess of magic (or sometimes a nymph, witch, enchantress or sorceress) who was the daughter of the Sun God worshipped as "Christos Helios", from whom the name Christ is derived from who was a Roman Sun god. The proper Hebrew word is Aqhal (Ihq) which means Assembly, Company, Congregation, called out as an organized body. So as you can see by the etymology of the word "Church", it is clearly of Pagan origin, and has nothing to do with the Most High nor his people, but has everything to do with those who worship the Sun as god on Sun-day, in their Roman Pantheon known as a Church. See what most people in these religious institutions don't know is that, Roman Emperor Constantine The Great in 321 AD, legislated Sun-day as a day of rest dedicated to the Greek and Roman Sun-god, Helios.
Constantine worshipped "Christos Helios" which means "Christ-The-True-Sun.
Church comes from the Anglo-Saxon root word "circe," and stems from the Greek name of the goddess "Circe," the daughter of "Helios," the Roman Sun-god adopted from Greek mythology. So today, these people in these religious institutions throughout the world, have been deceived into worshipping Helios in his daughter's name Church, and are really Pagans in every form shape and fashion. Most churches you see estaablished today, are State controlled 501-C (3) Corporations. A Church that is formed under the permission of the State and thereby accepts State offered benefits for doing so, is no longer under the "headship" of Messiah, but has instead placed it's self under the sole authority of the State. A 501-C (3) Church or any Church formed by State permission under any "Corporate form" will no longer be permitted to discuss the affairs that may counter or oppose the rules or laws established by the State, for they are at the complete mercy of the State in all matters.
Acts 5:29 states - Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. So if the Most High as he has done with everyone of his servants the prophets, and his Son, move on them to prophesy against the nation and governments of the earth, these religious sold out State flunkies, have to disobey the Most High and obey man who pays their salary, or else be dealt with by the State and then Jewish Elite who controls the American government. The Son of Man and his disciples went to the people to teach, they didn't have no church setup for the people to come and hear them to get knowledge, the Pharisees and the hypocrites had churches, aka temples and synagogues. The Son of Man and his disciples were in the streets were the sick and blind and lepers were, in the streets is where the word of the Most High is needed, not in some Pagan temple.
Question: When the Son of Man came to town, did he enter the church so that the sick could come in and be healed?
Mark 6:56 - And whithersoever he entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought him that they might touch if it were but the border of his garment: and as many as touched him were made whole.
The Son of Man dwelt amongst the people, he wasn't high minded and needed some building for the people to come see him at as if he was a Superstar.
He went unto the people, he entered into villages, and cities, and countries, where the people where at and needed him, because the people sought after him with a passion and his mission was to serve the people.
We know he didn't have a church setup where he taught in villages and cities and countries, because scripture says they sought him in the streets. True teachers of the Most High are not limited to a building, they are out amongst the people teaching daily as did the Son of Man and his followers and prophets did. What was the name of Moses church? What was the name of any of the prophets church? What was the name of the Son of Man church? Exactly, they didn't have one the hypocrites and Pagans had them.
Question: Where did the people seek Peter at, was it in a church?
Acts 5:15 - Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them.
Where in the precept did it say they brought them into the church, and laid them on the seats? Nowhere, he was in the streets like every true servant of the Most High would be doing as the Son of Man and prophets and disciples did, which was go unto the people.
Question: Where did the Son of Man tell his disciples to go and get people, was it the church?
Matthew 22:9 - Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.
Again, where did the precept say go into the church and as many as ye find, bid to the marriage? Nowhere, again showing they were in the streets, they weren't sitting around waiting for bible study night, or Sunday worship, thats a heathen custom. Acts 17:24 - Yehweh that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; Now remember in the Old Testament the words Congregation and Assembly represented Israel, so let's see how the Masoretes made a few switches.
Question: Where was the name of the Most High said to be declared?
Psalm 22:22 - I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.
Here in the Old Testament, is it written that the name would be declared in the midst of the congregation. So lets see what it says in the New Testament, it should say the same right cause congregation represented Israel, and the brethern of the Saviour where Hebrews.
Question: Where in the New Testament is the name to be declared in?
Hebrews 2:12 - Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.
Hold up, this is completely different here in the New Testament, you notice the switch? As we just read, the word church was never used in the Old Testament, and the scripture in Psalms was in reference to the Hebrew Saviour declaring his name in the midst of his brethren. So if they were his brethren, then that means they were also Hebrews, but yet their trying to replace Israel with a term to represent a new body of people, you add a word that was never there to give off the understanding of the "church" as being the people of the Saviour. So by doing this, they have managed to set the stage for showing a relationship between the Saviour and his people called, "Church". So with slick moves like this, is how they are able to write in the bible trying to make importance of Christ and now the Church, instead of the Hebrew Saviour and his Hebrew people Israel.
Question: What were those ordained by the Most High who healed and offered up sacrifices referred to as?
Leviticus 4:15 - And the elders of the congregation shall lay their hands upon the head of the bullock before Yehweh: and the bullock shall be killed before Yehweh.
Exodus 12:21 - Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them, Draw out and take you a lamb according to your families, and kill the passover.
So as you can see, here in the Old Testament they were referred to as the "elders of the congregation", and in Exodus 12 you see that the congregation was in reference to Israel. So lets see exactly what the elders are referred to as in the New Testament.
Question: So whats written in the New Testament?
James 5:14 - Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
Hold up wait a minute, here in the New Testament the elders are referred to as "elders of the church". Now this prompts the question, which is how can they be referred to something that has no existence to the Most High?
Question: Who did Moses and Aaron gather together?
Numbers 20:10 - And Moses and Aaron gathered the congregation together before the rock, and he said unto them, Hear now, ye rebels; must we fetch you water out of this rock?
Joshua 18:1 - And the whole congregation of the children of Israel assembled together at Shiloh, and set up the tabernacle of the congregation there. And the land was subdued before them.
So as you can see here in the Old Testament, the translation are correct in meaning and the words congregation and assembled are in use. So it shows the congregation was gathered together, and in Joshua just like in Exodus 12, you see that the word congregation is in reference to Israel.
So lets see who was gathered together in the New Testament.
Question: Whats written in the New Testament?
Acts 14:27 - And when they were come, and had gathered the church together, they rehearsed all that Yehweh had done with them, and how he had opened the door of faith unto the Gentiles.
Again here in the New Testament the word church is used, as where in the Old Testament congregation was used in reference to Israel. Gentiles were those outside of Israel, so if the church represents all people as taught today, then why would they be gathered together recalling what the Most High had done for those outside of Israel? If they were gathered together rehearsing how the Most High opened the door of faith unto the Gentiles, then those that were come, had to have gathered the congregation aka Israel together, because how could they rehearse what the Most High had done for those outside of Israel, if church represented all people, and Gentiles were people outside of Israel? This precept is showing two different bodies of people, with Israel being replaced by the word church, and the other body of people being the Gentiles.
Question: Who is the Most High among?
Psalm 89:7 - Yehweh is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him.
Here in the Old Testament, he is among the assembly of the saints, in which assembly was in representation of Israel, as well as saints. How do we know saints are Israel? Psalm 148:14 - He also exalteth the horn of his people, the praise of all his saints; even of the children of Israel, a people near unto him. Praise ye Yehweh. That's how, the saints of the Most High are the children of Israel. So lets examine the New Testament and see how the saints are referred to.
Question: So whats written in the New Testament?
1 Corinthians 14:33 - For Yehweh is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
Here in the New Testament, it doesn't say in all assemblies of the saints, instead it says in all churches of the saints. This is where confusion has come into play, so knowing the Most High is not the author of confusion, then Satan working through a people, has caused confusion. How so, because now people have developed the understanding that all people in church are saints, which is clearly false doctrine. Israel are the saints of the Most High, but most don't know this because their leader is a trained seminary flunkie to coverup the deception, and the Roman Catholic Church, which this started back in the 8th century to deceive the world. So the word Church comes from the Anglo-Saxon root word "circe," and stems from the Greek name of the goddess "Circe," the daughter of "Helios," the Roman Sun-god adopted from Greek mythology. The word church as we learned is a building dedicated to pagan Celtic worship and rituals. So in order to keep in worship with their Pagan Sun gods, they translated the word Kirche (Circe), to Church in English and tried to pass it off as being a place used for religious service and worship, which is the same as the place used for pagan Celtic worship. Thats why the defintion of the word church doesn't say a place people or one goes to worship Yehweh the Father, because the Pagans worshipped many Sun gods just as people do today. How so, who is the Father of the Catholic Church, the Baptist Church, the Methodist Church, the Muslim Church, the Protestant Church and so forth?
If church has nothing to do with the Most High, then who are these people of these religious institutions worshipping in these Pagan buildings? Not the Most High the Father of Israel!
Wake up my People!
