Why would Yahovah move His ‘centre’ from Jerusalem to Rome?
All Christians must ask themselves this question, why, because most Christian sects are descended or are daughter churches of Rome. If your sect keeps Sunday Sabbath (or non at all), then you must seriously ask yourself this question.
The Apostle Paul brought the ‘gospel’ to Rome, the centre of civilization at the time, but was this the good news of a dead deity on a cross (as preached by the church of Rome), or the news that Messiah had dealt with the problems of Adam and death (see here)?
The assembly of believers in Rome flourished until it was wiped out by Nero, but was re-established after a decade or so, and went on to become the universal (catholic) religion of Constantine and his successors, and which, for a thousand years or more dominated (and enslaved in feudalism) what we now know as Europe.
But we first need to ask ourselves was the post Nero Roman assembly the same as the pre-Nero assembly that was wiped out.
We don’t know an awful lot about this time in history, it is as if it has all been purged.
Archelogy gives us a picture of the early post-Nero assembly as including and combining with the Zoroastrian ‘Mithra’ cult within its structure and indeed, Constantine himself, although supposed to have ‘converted’ to Christianity, also appears to have remained a ‘Papa’ of the Mithra cult. see http://www.viewzone.com/mithras.html it is also available here
If the roots of modern Christianity lie in this merging of Mithra and Christ into a single Roman ‘Church’ then we have to be incredibly careful when we look at traditional interpretations of scripture.
Every time we walk through the portals of a ‘church’ we need to ask ourselves where in our scritures do we ‘see’ this? If the answer is ‘Rome’ then we need to be on our guard, if the answer is Jerusalem then we are closer to Yah.
It could well be that the “Synagogue of Satan” is more to do with Rome than of Jerusalem.
But the big issue here is whether or not Jesus died on the cross for our sins, and, arising from that, was the Law of Yah nailed to that same cross. This idea is fundamental to ‘Roman’ Christianity and its derivatives.
The above belief system also portrays the idea of a trinity of gods, making one God, and this is very different from Jerusalem where Yah is one. So much so that those believers in ‘Jerusalem’ were persecuted and destroyed by the authorities in and of Rome down the decades of ‘Rome’ dominance.
To me, the truth lies in the scriptures, we have to look very carefully at everything, cross referencing what we find in the New Testament with what we find in the Old Testament, and we have to understand that Yah is unchanging, and Yahushua is the same Yesterday, today and forever.
It is my belief that a church building, with a pastor/vicar/priest in the pulpit, and a congregation who have to abide by a doctrine interpreted and prescribed by a hierarchy of men is not only unscriptual, but is indeed a “Synagoue of Satan”.
If you keep ‘Sunday’ as sabbath, be warned, Yah holds the ‘seventh’ day as very pivotal in his commandments, it is the only one of the commandments that he seals with his signature:-
Observe the sabbath day, to keep it holy, as Jehovah thy God commanded thee. Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work; but the seventh day is a sabbath unto Jehovah thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy man-servant, nor thy maid-servant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy man-servant and thy maid-servant may rest as well as thou. And thou shalt remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and Jehovah thy God brought thee out thence by a mighty hand and by an outstretched arm: therefore Jehovah thy God commanded thee to keep the sabbath day.
In this quote from Deuteronomy chapter 5, Yah emphasises that He is the God who brought the people out of slavery, if we try to pretend that Sunday (a Mythratic ‘sabbath’) is Yah’s seventh day, then it is to keep a pagan sabbath, not Yah’s Sabbath. It is to keep Rome, not Jerusalem.
