Reply Catholics sure like to misinterpret Matthew 16:18. That's where they get the idea of their church being the first church, which is totally wrong. Reply Brother, Your videos are really good and it's very helpful in understanding the scriptures. Could you also do a video on training the children in the way of the lord in this deceiving world? Reply we shoud not wate for our slavery. we soud beleve. Reply Tell it LIKE IT IS! Loved the message. Reply Outstanding video. Truth, spoken clearly and simply. Reply Thank you. Reply Don't pay tithe but observe the Sabbath? The early church regularly met on a Sunday in honor of the resurrection, they also believed in a treating all days as equally holy, they claimed to in a way keep the Sabbath everyday. Ultimately though "One person esteems one day as better than another, while another esteems all days alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind." Great video though. Shalom! Reply The vast majority of so-called Protestants DID NOT TRULY BREAK AWAY FROM THE CATHOLIC CHURCH. That's why they kept the Pagan Sun-Temples that the ancient sun worshipers used(that's where the Catholics got that tradition from). You want an example of a true Protestant, I suggest you read about Roger Williams who founded Rhode Island. He hated the idea of Christians having Church Buildings for the same reasons I do. Reply Truth, thank you for this information/confirmation of what the Holy Spirit(Elohim) has been leading me to. You know I was one of those who emailed you to say I was leaving my untrue church, and wanted to find a "true" church… However through prayer, Yahshua has led me to, and led others to me to start a fellowship in our homes. I first started with my immediate family, now have others to read with, pray with, learn from, and hold each other accountable. Truth…. I really really thank you for your teachings, insight and encouragement. May Elohim bless and keep you in Yahshua's name…. Amen…. Reply Thanks for mentioning it Reply Thank you for your ministry. Please give your understanding of the below. Ephesians 4:11-16 King James Version (KJV) 11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Reply https://youtu.be/L7OLFbtfGSU what do you think about this? Reply https://youtu.be/L7OLFbtfGSU Reply Yah bless you my brother! Such a breath of fresh air to see your videos and receive confirmation from the Most High that I'm on the right path. We are the church and the TRUTH shall make us free! Yah bless our people, may we all continue to wake up and seek the TRUTH! Reply Our Apostle Paul called God, Jesus Christ, Lord, and Our Father and we in the Body of Christ must also call Him Our Lord Jesus Christ instead of all the old Testaments names used by Jews..Yes, we are the Church and the building. Reply Our Apostle is Paul (who wrote 13 Letters to the Body of Christ and dispensation of the mystery of Grace) and see what he have to say about himself. Your Pastor will never tell you this, because he want you to worship him, shake your hand and tell tells you that you are saved. He then get you emotional and collect most of your and get your own wife cooking for the dickhead. Colossians 1:1 Authorized (King James the good Bible) 1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timotheus our brother, Galatians 1:1 – Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead 😉 Galatians 1:11-12 -But I certify you, brethren that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ. Jeremiah 17:5 -Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord. 1 Corinthians 14:16 -Else when thou shalt bless with the spirit, how shall he that occupieth the room of the unlearned say Amen at thy giving of thanks, seeing he understandeth not what thou sayest? People try and learn your Bible and not what you’d been taught okay. Happy Sunday folks, our salvation is a free gift from our Lord Jesus Christ and the Father. Our salvation only based on the death, burial and rebirth of our Lord Jesus Christ. Basically on the Cross of Calvary. Period. Simply, by Faith alone plus nothing. Faith is the only thing you can do without doing anything. I am an engineer and I must say I have study my King James Bible from Genesis2Revelation. Finally, read 1 Corinthians2:13. Grace be with you all from our lord Jesus Christ and the father. Love each other. Reply I love god Reply I loved this message! It spoke directly to my heart! Reply Great vid even though I disagree on Constantine. What I want to know is how was the Catholic Church able to get a hold of the holy bible in the earliest centuries? My second question is will you be able to make a vid about Martin Luther of the 16th Century and the Protestant Reformation? It's important Reply My brother thank you for sharing this message it has given me hope Reply Truth to the world… Reply As always thank you for your dedication to bringing the truth to the word. AKA the word of God.. .."Unedited" May YAHSHUA continue to bless you and your family 🙏 Reply I am a backslidden Christian of the Apostolic Faith that is going through it and i have been seeking the truth. I feel like i was led to your channel and i thank God for you. Your videos have opened my eyes. I have been trying to figure out why i worship on sunday, and the sabbath and i have been told Jesus didnt do away with the law but to fufill it. He is Lord of the Sabbath. I still didnt know my history but i really appreciate your videos. Be blessed. Reply Not all churches are bad. The Word also says we submit to the elders of a local church or assembly to equip with sound doctrine and accountability the same is true with the 5 fold ministry. God does put leaders in the Body, not from a hiearchal standpoint, but from a serving one. the assembly its not the end all be all. The Church as a whole is PART of the Kingdom of God, which is much broader, which is suppose to be acknowledged no matter where we are. We responsible to continue to expand it, spreading the Gospel of Christ, knowing the Holy Spirit and the Word of God for ourselves. Our greatest calling being His sons and daughters, being citizens of His Kingdom. The pastor I'm under makes sure we are expanding the Kingdom and spreading the Gospel, not just have glorified assembly meetings like a lot a church institutions do with very little impact to the Kingdom. Reply Always a blessing,thanks! Reply The word "church" has no place in Scripture. A "church" is a building. Everywhere the word "church" appears in Scripture, is a substitution… not a translation or transliteration. The word "church" substituted the Greek word that meant in the English "assembly" or "congregation". Yah never commanded us to go to church. The assembly/congregation… is Yahusha's bride. We should not go nor need to go to "church". We as Believers need to and should assemble and congregate together. Reply Question: I’ve been raised Catholic and was baptized as a baby but now becoming a true Christian. Do I have to be re- baptized? My parents say it would be a sin to be baptized twice, plus I did my confirmation which is a type of way renouncing the evil one. I truly want to be baptized but not sure??😩 Reply Hi also read Deuteronemy 14 to see the true command of tithing. Celebrating Elohim with your first fruits Reply This may be offtopic, but I think Jesus Christ was Melchizedek in the Old Testament. Think about this. Melchizedek was called the "King of Salem" and "High Priest of God". Now, Salem is not a real place. It is not a physical location or a kingdom. Salem is the Hebrew term for "Peace". And we know who is called the Prince of Peace. Also, Paul states that Melchizedek had no father or mother. What he means is that Melchizedek came out of nowhere to meet with Abraham and break bread and drink wine with him, a practice of Jesus in the New Testament. Also, Melchizedek is not a name. It is a title. I think it means "King of Righteousness". And we know who the King of Righteousness and Prince of Peace is. And who is also considered the High Priest of God? The one who broke bread and gave up His life for humanity. God bless. Reply Immanuel is Amazing! (Isaiah 7:14) Reply But we should all still give money to the poor..at least I believe. 2 Corinthians 9:7 ESV / 3,056 helpful votesHelpful Not Helpful Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. Reply The church= the called out ones. Come out of her my people. Excellent video. I learned more about the bible through the holy spirit then i ever did at a church Reply I enjoy your channel, I’m a new subscriber and a “babe” in the faith, I would like to ask if sometime in the near future if you could speak on depression/anxiety etc?…(if you haven’t done so already) I would like your personal thoughts and scriptural as well from yourself or other viewers. I’m really struggling in this area. Thanks in advance family!! Reply May God bless you bro Shalom May Yeshua keep filling you up with knowledge and understanding, wisdom through the Holy Spirit lots of love 🙂 Reply AMEN brother!! I always say the Church is not a building but the body of Christ, His followers. It's not a denomination! There is so much compromise out there! I go online and watch different Preachers/sermons online. There are several that remain true to the Word! I wish I had a church building for me to go to and fellowship but I am very thankful for what I receive from the Youtube channels and online websites. God bless! Reply Is there anyone from East London E15 who is watching this and feels they need fellowship, let's gather. I find very true what truthunedited teaches and I would love to make part of a group of people who feels the same. God bless you all Reply We've all been part of a "RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATION" before…but now is the time to LEAVE religion⛪ alone and go build a real personal relationship with the Creator of the universe! #DifferentDenominations #CULTS #Babylon ➡️Revelation 18:1-4⬅️ "Babylon" aka "RELIGION" Is Destroyed (1) Then I saw another angel coming down from heaven. This angel had great power. The angel’s glory made the earth bright.( 2) The angel shouted with a powerful voice, “She is destroyed! The great city of Babylon is destroyed!She has become a home for demons. That city has become a place for every unclean spirit to live.She is a city filled with all kinds of unclean birds. She is a place where every unclean and hated animal lives.(3) All the peoples of the earth have drunk the wine of her sexual sin and of God’s anger.The rulers of the earth sinned sexually with her, and the merchants of the world grew rich from the great wealth of her luxury.” (4) Then I heard another voice from heaven say, “Come out of that city, my people, so that you will not share in her sins. Then you will not suffer any of the terrible punishment she will get. Reply It is crazy how you just getting to this part in the series and you repeating the same things I have said to soooooooo many people. I thank God for clarity. I thank God for the word of truth. This series is sure a good tool to use to point people in the right direction. You have no idea how many people I reach by not just sharing the word, but being able to give them a visual as well. It helps a lot. Keep doing what you doing. I been at this and on this journey for 11 years now and it didn't start with these videos. God led me to find these to help me not only strengthen my relationship with God but to also be spark to soo many others. Shalom my brother. May God continue to bless you and I will continue to sow into your ministry. Reply my definition of church is the people not a building structure. Church can be ANYWHERE to praise God and follow his laws. Reply "I am the Lord and I change not" Malachi 3:6God hasn't withdrawal any of the commandments that He gave us! The Levi Priest order faded as the Priests couldn't carry on forever…they died! Today's Priests are after the order of Melchizedek, who lives forever because He is Jesus Christ. read Hebrews 7ECC 5:1 warns all to select carefully which house of the Lord the go to and not just to pay out. Really we are meant to pray and ask the Lord to lead us into a God fearing church Reply Paul was definitely a false apostle!https://youtu.be/OmkwcGAt3XQ Reply Church of England are child molesting peadophiles!https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/church-of-england-dealing-with-thousands-of-sex-abuse-allegations-vx8xwk2l8 Reply Catholic church are child molesting peadophiles!https://www.nytimes.com/topic/organization/roman-catholic-church-sex-abuse-cases Reply Jehovah's witnesses and child molesting peadophiles!https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/mar/25/jehovahs-witnesses-accused-of-silencing-victims-of-child-abuse-uk Reply Bible following black Christians are still slaves to their slavemasters!https://youtu.be/lvKUOuYn1-c Reply Black Christian women leaving this racist devil Christianity religion!https://youtu.be/8-d6waDjK04 Reply Amen brother keep up the good work it feels good to have like minded people in the world who know church is us believers and not a building my own wife who grew up in the traditional way of the so call church fights against me when I bring up that point but I don't let it get to me because I read and I know the truth The Father bless you and your family Amen Reply My Question is , how were all of the buildings that they met at destroyed mentioned in revelations and you can google it online? How does that explain the letters written to the church by Paul when he was in prison ? And how does this explain Revelation 1-3 when that prophecy was fulfilled? Also Sanhedrins were built and temples , also the Torah teachings. Also 7th Day Adventist go to church on Saturday, I am a 7th day Adventist … tithing was done since Melchizedek which represents the Holy Spirit , and with Jacob , and the curse of Mentioned in Malachi 3? That’s not all churches, and yes they did so how did annaias and saphira drop dead when they held back their tithes , and the Holy Spirit rebuked them and they dropped dead.. you have to do more studying sir you are leading in error, I pray you not be an accuser of the brethren ….. there’s two different tithings and also it’s to help the community’s with community service and the cause of the gospel going forward, I agree with you on holidays , but most people that say things concerning churches and not knowing what things stand for usually aren’t even helping the church or the preaching the truth to those in darkness… also I agree with you about false teachings are a no no , but this video is half true and half false this is why Hebrew and Greek needs to be studied along with history and context , outside of feelings that way you can get the actual context. You are a light make it shine do not dim that light , also Christ preached in the synagogue read the book of John he also preached outside of church too, but he was teaching up until close to His death… this is why line must be upon line precept upon precept here a little and there a little ….
