Mark of the Beast
A Nazarene (in the Nazarene School of Divinity) posed a very good question. “Do we today, put on sackcloth and toss ashes over our head?” If so, what is sackcloth, and how do we perform this act with ashes and so forth. How are we to understand this act that seems to be an important ritual in the previous covenant?”
We have to remember, in the “OT” everything was a physical shadow designed to train us for the coming Kingdom; which is Spiritual. So we must approach these things to seek out the Spiritual Intent of these actions. What was this outward “show” of ripping your clothes, putting on “sackcloth”, and tossing ashes up over your heat supposed to show us? What is it teaching us?
That act is an outward demonstration of what is called “fasting and mourning”. Today, fasting has come to mean “go without food” by tradition, but that is nowhere in scripture!
Fasting means “to afflict your soul“; but what does that mean?
Crying out to Yahuah, morning, in this way shows us outwardly what afflicting our soul looks like inwardly. Today, what is important is that we actually do “afflict our soul” not just put on the outward display as the Pharisees loved to do….
Speaking of us today, in The Yahushuaic Covenant, we should have matured beyond this “act”, and truly have a heart for Yahuah and His Will. Our hearts should truly cry out for Him, not outwardly but inwardly; which is what that physical behavior was demonstrating.
The outward act can be faked (as the Pharisee showed us) and means nothing to Yahuah. Yahuah is after our hearts, which only HE sees and we cannot “put on a show” for Him there.
Joel 2 12
“Yet even now,” declares Yahuah, “Return to Me with all your heart, And with fasting, weeping and mourning; 13 And rend your heart and not your garments”.
Sackcloth represents true repentance. Ashes “burnt offerings” or “offering our lives” as we fast/afflict our soul, weep, and mourn inwardly with a heart of flesh (loving heart toward) Yahuah.

The purpose of this book is to help the Nazarenes understand The Law, how to discern intent, how to apply The Law in our OWN lives, and how to avoid the temptation to apply it to the lives of others. The Law is a personal guide to Righteousness that is used by Yahuah as the vehicle by which He trains us within the context of a personal relationship… We are never to use The Law to judge another’s servant! In this book I am going to build the foundation and beliefs of The Nazarene, the true sons of Yahuah and followers of The Branch. I am also going to then establish the beliefs of Sha’ul the Apostle as he was one of the most influential Nazarenes who ever lived. I am going to then address The Pauline Doctrine and dismantle that false doctrine point by point. The Pauline Doctrine is a Greek appropriate “doctrine” born out of sound bite implied lies, twisted scriptures, and ignorance of the scriptures. This book will establish the place of The Law in your life, and The Plan of Salvation.
The angelic realm perverted the Creator’s Gospel message written in the stars but it was in Babylon that lie became a formal religion. We are commanded to come out of this religion and not partake in her sins. Before we can cleanse our lives of these pagan traditions we must first know what rituals and gods defined the religion in Babylon. In this book we will look at Nimrod the founder of Babylon and how he became Ba’al the sun god. We will look at Semaramis, his wife, who became the fertility goddess Ishtar/Easter. We will examine closely the religion Semaramis created to maintain power after Nimrod’s death. We will look at Semaramis’ son Tammuz whom she claimed was given to her by the rays of the sun in virgin miraculous birth. Semaramis then married her son Tammuz claiming he was the incarnation of Nimrod. The Trinity was born. Nothing is too sacred or off limits in this book. Discover the origin of the rituals and religions of today. This book will rock your very foundation!
Creation Cries Out! 2nd Edition – is the most complete book ever written on what the Bible calls the Mazzaroth and what we today call the Zodiac. It is the Heavenly Scroll and source of all the prophets in the Bible. In the Mazzaroth the Plan of Salvation is laid out by the Creator and the Messiah’s role is defined. In the Mazzaroth, we find the first prophesies of: – The Sabbath – The Ages of mankind – The first and second comings of the Messiah – The Messiah ben Joseph (suffering servant) – The Messiah ben David (conquering King) – The Fall and Spring Feast Cycles of Yahuah – The Wedding Portrait, the Bride and Bridegroom – The Two Houses of Israel … and much more. In this book I explain how Yahuah used the Zodiac to witness the Gospel to all the prophets, Abraham, the Galatians, Sha’ul (Paul the Apostle), and John the revelator. The Mazzaroth is the Great Seal over His Word, broken at the “time of the end”. We are in that time. That seal has been broken
