Did you Know?

by Dan Baxley




Did you know Moses was an Israelite? Sure you did, of course.

Did you know the Ten Commandments were written by YaHWeH and given to Israel?

Did you know the Messiah is an Israelite (Jew)?  Born out of the Tribe of Judah?

Did you know "Jesus" is not His Name? YaHshua is the only Name "found among men by which we must be saved".

Did you know 80% of Americans claim to believe in a God leaving only 20% secular? The USA is the Biblical holdout in the world today -- standing on the divide between total disbelief and utter paganism.  Yes, India is more spiritual than the USA, perhaps, but the point I am wanting to make here, is that the USA is more religious than many think or the news media care to admit, and I want to use this compared to the next ----

Did you know 90% of Modern Israel is secular, leaving only 10% that actually believe in a God governing man, in a spiritual world? (This is according to the Jerusalem Post) Israel relies on its friends to save it, having abandoned their Creator they trust in other nations and the strength of their own hands to save them.  Why else would they have turned the Temple Mount over to the heathen Arabs?

Did you know the Messiah was NOT born on 12/25/0000?  This birthday appears to belong to the Babylonian god, Tamuz.  Our Savior was not born into the darkness of winter.  This time of the year, during the darkest period of the year, is marked as the time of birth of various pagan gods.  Here is a list of a few --

Attis of Greece c1200 BC
Krishna of India c900 BC
Dionysus of Greece c500 BC
Mithra of Persia c1200 BC
Horus of Egypt c3000 BC
Jesus of Nazareth c1 AD

It would seem someone is trying hard to weave a December birthday into society as the acceptable time for a Savior god whom all the world can adore.  It seems to me our Savior told His followers that if they (the world) hated Him they will hate you, and it seems that is what has happened.  All of the Apostles were killed before their time except for John.  Millions of followers of YaHshua have been murdered for believing in Him, the one not born in December.

Did you know the Messiah had nothing to do with Easter?  (He observed Passover) On Easter (Ishtar – Ashtar -- Ashroah) festivals the pagans would go out early in the morning and pay homage to the rising of the Sun, in honor of the Father of Tammuz -- sunrise services, anyone?  (Eze 8:13-16 -- sound familiar?).  Turning the back to the Temple then facing the East to worship at the rising of the Sun was a detestable thing to the God of the Bible –

(Eze 8:15-16)  He said to me, "Do you see this, son of man? You will see things that are even more detestable than this."

 He then brought me into the inner court of the house of the YHWH, and there at the entrance to the temple, between the portico and the altar, were about twenty-five men. With their backs toward the temple of the YHWH and their faces toward the east, they were bowing down to the sun in the east. NIV

Did you know the Messiah was crucified on Wednesday, not Friday?  He was to be cut of in the midst of the week.(Mat 12:30-40 -- the only proof our Savior provided what the comparison of Jonah -- no one questions Jonah's stay in the belly of the great fish -- 3 days and 3 nights -- now, count backward from the time the Tomb was found empty -- He could have not been crucified on a Friday -- but most Christians accept the teachings of the Mother Church of Rome, making our Savior out to be a liar -- so, who is the lair here, really?)

Did you know the 144,000 of Revelation is not the Church?  They are Israelites and will walk with the Messiah -- where ever He goes they will go. (Rev 7:1, Rev 14:1, plainly state who these people are)

I’m sure most of you do know these things and much more.  It is not a test but an observation having to do with the Christian Church in general.  Did you know most in the Christian religion do not know any of these things?  As a matter of fact they don’t care to know and if any do they choose to ignore these points as unimportant, after all, it’s what's in your heart that counts, and why rock the boat? 

Did you know there is only one Name under heaven by which you can be saved?  Acts 4:12 is a good place to start in proving this -- read it and also --.

Did you know His Name is not Jesus?   This name never existed until around 400 years ago.  When the 1611 AD KJV bible was originally produced the translators presented the name as, IESVS, then revised in later versions as, IESUS, and then in a later revision to, JESUS.  None of these representations are equivalents of His true birth Name, JOSHUA, the name the KJV translators used for the Old Testament Book, JOSHUA, also the name of the son of Nun, Mose' right hand man, also the individual leading the Children of God YaHWeH into the Promised Land.   The name JOSHUA is a near "equivalent", unlike the false name, JESUS, and is found in the same translation but not used.  Why?  The true equivalent today is, YaHshua.

Did you know the Christian world is preaching "another Messiah"?  Our Savior told us "...another would come in his own name and him you would listen to", guess He was right. 

John 5:43I am come in my Father's Name, and you receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him you will receive.

Did you know Peter’s name is not Peter (Petros, means a piece of rock)?   His name was Simon, then YaHshua said he would be called, Cephas (Cephas, means stone).  It also seems he was called Peter, which means a piece of rock, or as some say, a pebble. 

(John 1:42) And he brought him to YaHshua. And when YaHshua beheld him, he said, You art Simon the son of Jona: you shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.

(Mar 3:16) And Simon He surnamed Peter;

Did you know Paul’s name is not Paul?  His real name is, Saul.  When it comes to the Apostles it is not so important, other than to demonstrate how names have been abused.  We are not saved by any of them, not under or by any of the names, or persons -- our salvation rest in YaHshua only, He is the only way and the only Name found under Heaven by which we MUST be saved.  Everyone will eventually have to confess YaHshua as Messiah and Savior and no one else, and by no other name.  

Did you know the author of the Book of Revelation was not John?  Some recognize the Apostle John as the author of the book of Revelation, and other manage to see it is not John that is the author, but YaHshua, but the truth is, this Book is from our Heavenly Father.  John is the one taking dictation, as it were, and recording what is being revealed to him by an angelic messenger that is representing YaHshua and the revealing of these things is from our Heavenly Father as given to YaHshua.  The Father, then to YaHshua, the son, then an angelic messenger to John.

Did you know the Creator of all things, the Creator God revealed in the Old Testament is really YaHshua, then known as YaHWeH? 

(John 1:1-3) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  The same was in the beginning with God.  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

(John 1:14) And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Col 1:15-18 Who is the image of the invisible God (the Father), the firstborn of every creature:  For by him (YaHshua) were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he (YaHshua) is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

Did you know The Rapture Doctrine is a false doctrine offering a false hope in a false Christ -- the "other Christ"?  The Christ is not coming back in a secret coming to whisk away Christians to Heaven.  First of all, only those from Heaven can go there, and so far that is only YaHshua, contrary to what others try to teach.  Our Savior told us the truth and he does not lie.   He said He came from Heaven and was to return there and would then come again.  This is not a promise to any flesh and blood believer, this is a statement of fact, from Yahshua Himself -- read -- John 3:13, it is plain, it is not hidden but men blinded by pagan beliefs and teachings are corrupted in their thinking . This is not something done in secret and it is not silent or covered knowledge, no, it is there in your own Bible.

(1Co 15:52) In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

Did you know our Savior had flesh and blood brothers and sisters? They would be half brothers and sister.

(Mat 13:56) And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things?

(Mar 6:3) Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him. (and Matt 13:55)

(John 7:2-4) But when the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles was near, YaHshua's brothers said to him, "You ought to leave here and go to Judea, so that your disciples may see the miracles you do. No one who wants to become a public figure acts in secret. Since you are doing these things, show yourself to the world."

Did you know James a brother of our Savior, YaHshua, became the leader of the Church -- even over Peter?

(Act 15:13) When they finished, James spoke up: "Brothers, listen to me.

(Act 15:19) It is my judgment, therefore, that we should not make it difficult for the Gentiles who are turning to God.

Did you know Paul was the Apostle to the Gentiles and not Peter?

(Act 22:21) Then the Lord said to me, 'Go; I will send you (Paul) far away to the Gentiles.'

Rom 15:16 That I (Paul) should be the minister of YaHshua the Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost.

Did you know YaHshua came to reveal the Father?

(Mat 11:27) All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.

Did you know no one knew the Father until YaHshua, no one has ever seen God the Father but YaHshua. 

(John 1:18) No one has ever seen God (the Father), but God (YaHshua) the One and Only (Savior), who is at the Father's side, has made him (the Father) known.

(John 6:46) No one has seen the Father except the one who is from God (the Father); only he has seen the Father.

Did you know our Savior said He would personally reveal the Father to those called? (again, Mat 11:27)

(Heb 2:12) He says, "I will declare your name to my brothers; in the presence of the congregation I will sing your praises."

Did you know the bride of the Messiah is not of this earth?

(Rev 21:2) And I John saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

(Gal 4:26) But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.

(Heb 12:22) But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,

We find the description of this Bride, the New Jerusalem, coming down from Heaven that the foundation is upon the 12 Apostles and the 12 gates, three on each wall, bearing the names of the 12 Tribes of Israel (Rev 21:12-14) – no mention of any Gentiles in this Bride of Christ coming down from Heaven above. 

Did you know the majority of the servants of YaHshua will be guest at the wedding of the Lamb to the Bride?

 (Rev 19:7-9) Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And he said unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he said unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

(Called to the marriage supper -- this would be after the wedding -- as guests -- who can fully understand the Bride? )

(Rev 22:17) And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

Did you know Heaven is coming to this earth? We are not going there, it is coming here?

(Rev 22:3-5) And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God (the Father) and of the Lamb (YaHshua) shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.  And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

Did you know the end of the world is not the end of the world?  There is a dynamic change coming but not for at least a thousand years or more.

(Rev 21:1) And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

Did you know there is only one way to eternal life?

(John 10:9) I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

 (Act 4:12) Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

(Rom 10:9) That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord YaHshua, and shall believe in thine heart that God (the Father) has raised him (YaHshua) from the dead, you shall be saved.

(Rom 14:11) For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. (it is written - Isa 45:23)

Did you know there is only one way to enter the Kingdom? YaHshua is the door and there is no other, and it is only through this door, YaHshua, that you can come to the Father!

(John 10:9) I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

(John 5:24)Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

(Mat 11:27)All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.

Did you know YaHshua is the only way, the only Door through which all must come to enter Life? Not maybe -- must!

(Act 4:12) Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Did you know in the days of Noah only 8 people escaped the worldwide flood?  They too were marrying and giving in marriage, buying and selling, just like today -- think about it.  Our Lord and Savior YaHshua said the time would become like the "Days of Noah" -- keep thinking -- only 8 people out of a population of ? 

(2Pe 2:5) And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;

Did you know unless our Heavenly Father and our Savior intervenes in world affairs no one, not one soul, would survive – Eternal life would be in question?  Not just world affairs but the physical world itself?

(Mar 13:20) And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he has chosen, he has shortened the days.

Did you know This earth is going to shake so violently mountains and Islands will be moved out of place? This is known as the 'Great Quake" of the 6th Seal -- this is the next great event we are waiting for, along with other events.

(Rev 6:12) And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

Did you know this will happen not once but twice? The second worldwide earthquake will be greater, destroying all cities.

(Rev 16:18) And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.

Did you know a Meteor (asteroid) and a comet are going to plunge into this earth? This will occur before the second "Great Quake", but after the first Great Quake.  Part of the 7th Seal and the 7 Trumpets -- more heavenly signs falling on Earth, announced by Trumpet blasts.

(Rev 8:8) And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; (Second Trumpet)

(Rev 8:10) And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; (Third Trumpet)

Space scientists (Astronomers) are discussing the possibility that some comets may be carriers of some kinds of virus or poisons, and see comets as a possible threat, just as described by the Third Trumpet sounding.  Of course they are not reading the Bible, it just so happens they are unknowingly speculating a possibility that the Bible tells us will happen.  The description of this “star” is that of a comet, like a “lamp” which in the Greek is “torch”, and comet, from the earth view does appear like a torch. 

Can you answer all or most of these questions in the affirmative?  Maybe you can add some of your own, “Did you know”?

Peace, from your servant Dan
