  1. How Teachable is this Pastor. Facts, NOT belief. Facts are not disputed they are concrete. Fact JESUS is Fake NAME !!!
    As a matter of fact, the name ‘Jesus’ did not even exist in the English language 400 years ago—as evidenced by the fact that it was not recorded in the original 1611 King James Bible. But let's dissect that name anyway as that has come to be the accepted name of the Messiah today we need to address it.

    If the first part of the name 'Ιη' (Ie) comes from 'Iehovah' following the Jewish superstition not to use Yahuah thereby using Elohim in the vowel points resulting in ignorance of the name Jehovah.

    The Century Bible, Volume 1, pages 90-91

    Sometime after the return from the Captivity, and before the beginning of the Christian Era, the Yahdaim (Jews) came to believe that the Holy Name Yahuah was too sacred to be uttered on ordinary occasions. It was said to be pronounced by the High Priest on the Day of Atonement. At other times, when any one read or quoted aloud from what is called the Old Testament, the word "Adonay","Lord," was usually substituted for Yahuah, and similarly the LXX (Septuagint Version) has Kurios, the Vulgate dominus, and the e.v. lord, where the Hebrew has Yahuah. Hebrew was originally written without vowels, but when the "vowel points" were added, the vowels of "Adonay" or "Elohim" were written with Yahuah, as a direction that these words were to be read instead of the word whose consonants were Yahuah; thus we find the combinations YeHoWaH and YeHoWiH. At the Reformation, the former being the more usual, was sometimes used as the Name of the (Mighty One) of Israyl, and owing to ignorance of its history was misread as "Jehovah," a form which has established itself in English, but does not give the pronunciation of the Holy Name it represents.

    Therefore the prefix of the name Je or (Ie) is in error. But does the suffix 'σους' (sous) mean 'saves' or 'salvation' in the Greek of the New Testament period? No.

    We know for a fact that "Iesous" was not then the proper way to translate the "intent" of the name given the Messiah that ‘Yahuah is salvation’ even in Greek or Latin. The Greek word for "salvation" is Strong’s entry 4991 soterion it is not sous.

    Strong's Number: 4992

    soterion, adjective. Meaning saving, bringing salvation he who embodies this salvation, or through whom God is about to achieve it in the hope of (future) salvation

    So if the translators were even true to their own language it would not have been translated "Jesus" or "Iesous" but rather "Iasoterion". It must be obvious by this point where the suffix "seous" came from. Jesus holds to the Greek tradition of naming people after their pagan god of the Pantheon… Zeus.

    Why did the translator use "sous" instead of "soteria"? Greek naming conventions give glory to Zeus

    It should be noted at this point that the Greeks had a similar naming convention as did the Hebrews. Where the Hebrews used “YAH” in the construction of their names giving glory to Yahuah, the Greeks ended names and cities using “sous/sus/us” after their own god Zeus. Take for example the name of Julius Caesar “Gaius Julius” or the name of the Roman Emperor Constantine who literally created Christianity “Flavius Valerius Aurelius Constantinus Augustus”. The suffix “us” was added to Greek and Roman names to give glory to Zeus where Yah was added to Hebrew names to give glory to Yahuah. Jesus is just such a Greek name like all Greek names ending in "us" that gives glory to Zeus!

    Dictionary of Christian Lore and Legend

    “It is known that the Greek name endings with sus, seus, and sous were attached by the Greeks to names and geographical areas as means to give honor to their supreme deity, Zeus." "This name of the true Messiah, Yahusha, being Hebrew, was objectionable to the Greeks and Romans, who hated the Judeans (Jews), and so it was deleted from the records, and a new name inserted. Yahusha was thus replaced by Ie-Sous (hail Zeus), now known to us as Jesus."

    Iesous in Greek

    So Yahusha is English for the Hebrew name of the Messiah (anointed King of Israel) and Jesus is the name of the Greek “savior” or Christos. It is that simple. But what does “Iesous” mean in Greek. It has no meaning in Hebrew; as it is not a Hebrew word. In Greek, “Iesous” literally translated means “Hail Zeus”. The name “Jesus” didn’t even exist until the 4th Century and was a later derivative of the late Latin Esus (pagan female god of salvation which later became Hesus or Hail Zeus then when the "I" grew a tail and became "J" it was Jesus.

    The Origin of Christianity by A.B. Traina

    "It is simply amazing to think that all these years, hundreds of years, mankind has been calling the Saviour by the wrong name!! It's hard to give up the name of Jesus because it's so deeply ingrained in us and much has been said and done in that name."

    Gospel of The Kingdom True Names and Title Dr. Henry Clifford Kinley 1931 – Ohio USA

    "In the 1611 KJ New Testament the name Yahusha appeared originally wherever the Messiah was spoken of. Yahusha means “Yahuah is Salvation”. Later the Messiah's name was replaced with Iesus (Greek) which later in the 1600's it became Jesus starting with the new English letter "J" which was introduced at that time. Further, the Greek "Iesus" comes from the name Zeus, the ruling God in the Greek pantheon."

    Gospel of The Kingdom True Names and Title Dr. Henry Clifford Kinley 1931 – Ohio USA 80

    We see in historical documents that the name “Jesus” did not even come into existence until the 1600’s when the letter “J” was introduced into our English language. So the name “Jesus” is only around 400 years old! The Greek "Iesus" comes from the name Zeus, the ruling God in the Greek pantheon. "Jesus” is a transliteration of a Latin name only ONE letter off “Ioesus” pronounced hey-sus – which has no meaning in Hebrew, but in Latin it means “Hail Zeus”. If Yahusha’s name had been transliterated into our language, it would have been Joshua. If the name was treated properly using the compound naming convention Yahuah intended it would be YAH(weh)SHUA shortened to “Yahusha” using the short contracted form maintaining the meaning of the name and fulfilling prophecy that the Messiah “came in the NAME of Yahuah”.

    If the name was handled properly in Greek by the uninspired pagan scribes, it would hold true to the “meaning” of the name as given by the Angel to Joseph and Mary; then “shua” or salvation would have been translated “soterion or soter” not “sous”. So we see a gross mis-handling of the Messiah’s name at best but when you look back in history we see a Hellinization of the name with the intent to give glory to the pagan god Zeus. So both the prefix of "Ie" and the suffix of "sous" are in error and are mistranslations of the Hebrew name Yah and shua. If the Greek translators handled the Hebrew name properly it would have been translated into Iasotera which would be Yah-savior in Greek. In the 21st century we have no need to trace the Messiah's name through pagan Rome. We, today, can simply translate it directly from Hebrew to English leaving out all the transliteration errors going from Latin/Greek and all the English variations.

    That name is Yahusha… directly from יהושע

    Luke 13

    35 “Look, your house is left to you desolate. I tell you, you will not see me again until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of Yahuah.’"

  2. Although I agree with and like his teachings, his constant demeaning and belittling of women is a huge turn off and I choose not continue to listen to his sermons or those who repeatedly condone this verbaly abusive and disrespectful behavior towards women.

  3. Hey Jimmy Evan's what do you think about the Nag Hammadi scriptures found in 1945 about our King Jesus Christ. I would love to hear your opinion is about it King Jesus Christ after all. Good to hear from you soon. Your brother from El Paso, Texas. – Jesse Cruz.

  4. 1948 + 80 = 2028 – 7 = 2021. *1948 was the rebirth of Israel *80 years is one generation *7 years of tribulation. Do you think 2021 is the year of the rapture? I don't know for sure too. But if it is correct, then I rejoice. Let us look up for our redemption is near. COME LORD JESUS COME!

  5. can i tell you something? Everyone is worrying about the mark of the beast what about the seal of Jesus??? No one is worried about making sure they are sealed in Jesus… If you're sealed in Jesus and keep that seal your Christ's if you're not then your already the beasts so no need to worry about that mark is there. If you're sinning folks your not Christ like. Just saying truth. Jesus said loveth thou me KEEP my commandments. No we don't get salvation by keeping the commandments we keep the commandments because our father said to. If you're a soldier in an army given an order you don't say to your sergeant i don't like those orders give me something else because if you didn't you'd be in great trouble… So in Jesus army commandments are given to mark you. If you keep them then the rest the army knows you as his. Don't wanna be under friendly fire.. If you look act talk like the beast guess who you are??? Right the beast. If you talk walk and act like Jesus your jesus' that simple. If you are under the blood of Jesus you shouldn't want or desire to taint that blood. You've not been under true conviction power if you think its ok to sin daily. I don't wanna hear everyone does it. Stop accusing the brothern. When we stand before judgement you can't say everyone else did it and excuse it. Because Jesus knows he told us to be set apart. Which means to not be like everyone else. Now if you take this V shot or whatever form into your temples don't expect Jesus to live there. Because if you trust science more then Jesus putting aborted children dna and other junk into your temples you're part taking of the sins that made that junk which means you're guilty of abortion. Oh don't see it that way?? Better read your bibles… No one is being raptured that isn't fit for the kingdom of heaven.
    Matthew 5:20
    King James Version
    20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

    }~{ my notes in winged quotes–So you're not getting on the ark in stained garments…
    REPENT, be baptized it was words the disciples taught, Jesus the same yesterday, today, and forever. Jesus hasn't given us a new commandment. He didn't abolish the law. This didn't change.}~{
    Matthew 5:17-20
    King James Version
    17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
    18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
    19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
    20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

    }~{if you're living in sin you can't serve two masters.}~{
    Matthew 6:24
    King James Version
    24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

    }~{the ark is leaving sooner then you think so best be REPENTING Christian sinners to cause if you're sinning you're a sinner not a Christian. }~{

    Which of these does your life line up with??? 100% are you walking to fulfill your lusts or Jesus will? Check guidelines in Galatians.
    Galatians 5
    King James Version
    5 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
    2 Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.
    3 For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.
    4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
    5 For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.
    6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.
    7 Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth?
    8 This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you.
    9 A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.
    10 I have confidence in you through the Lord, that ye will be none otherwise minded: but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgment, whosoever he be.
    11 And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why do I yet suffer persecution? then is the offence of the cross ceased.
    12 I would they were even cut off which trouble you.
    13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
    14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
    15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.
    16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
    17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
    18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
    19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
    20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
    21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
    22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
    23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
    24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
    25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
    26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another

    }~{So are you living after flesh??? REPENT be baptized for the REMISSION of your SINS then ye are sealed with that promise.}~{
    ACTS 2:38 kjv
    Then Peter said unto them, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
    }~{It's a gift you can't buy it. }~{
    Matthew 28:19-20
    King James Version
    19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
    }~{in the name of not title, name of}~{
    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. Amen.

    }~{teaching them to observe all things i commanded you. Lovest thou me? Keep my commandments. Being baptized is a command as well as REPENT. Anything Jesus tells us to do is a command. Obedience is better then sacrifice DON'T just have a form of godliness and deny the power there of }~{
    2 Timothy 3:5
    King James Version
    5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
