Where on your site can I find a succinct statement about who or what you believe the Holy Spirit is?


Thanks

to Al, bcc: me

There is no "Holy Spirit." The Ruwach Qodesh is Set Apart. She is the maternal expression of Yahowah's nature.

I don't believe. I either know or don't know. Why would you care what anyone believes when truth can be known? And why are you seeking succinct when the more one knows, the better?

If you want to know what I know, read what I've written. There are 18 books, 15 of which are based upon my translations of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Start where I began, with Yada Yah at YadaYah.com.

Dear Sir,

I listened to you interviewed recently on the Rense show, and I am very interested, but I have a question.

I would respectfully ask, why is it that you don't apply the same critical approach to the Hebrew Old Testament? Was it too not an amalgam of many politically motivated works by different authors at different times, eventually canonized by rabbis for at least partly political purposes? Are the Hebrew deity names not confusingly multiple, and the character of the deity referred to apparently different in different Old Testament books?

I believe in God, and I was raised both Catholic and Jewish (my family converted wen I was a kid), so I have some insight into both traditions, but I am trying to bypass the established notions - to try and reach some conclusions on my own. In that sense I appreciate the spirit of your message, but I wonder how it is you're so certain and comfortable that the Hebrew Bible has more faith-centred authenticity than the Greek Bible. So much scholarly work has been done linking Hebrew Bible -referenced stories to earlier Sumerian legends, and there are suggestions of ancient Egyptian and West Canaanite influence too.

Any thoughts or explanation would be appreciated.

Regards,
E

E,

"I would respectfully ask, why is it that you don't apply the same critical approach to the Hebrew Old Testament?"

It is disappointing that you would express this criticism without first considering the evidence. It shows not only a lack of respect, but also reveals that you are guilty of the very thing you are falsely accusing me of doing. If you had read what I had written first, you would have known that I took the same approach to the Greek CNT as I did the the Hebrew Towrah, Prophets, and Psalms. I went to the oldest extant manuscripts and translated them myself. Then I considered what I read to determine if it was true or false, trustworthy or unreliable. I was and remain resolutely critical. Evidence and reason is all that matters.

"Was it too not an amalgam of many politically motivated works by different authors at different times, eventually canonized by rabbis for at least partly political purposes?"

No, no, no, no, not really, yes, no and no. The Towrah, Prophets, and Psalms is an integrated and consistent entity. It isn't an amalgamation and it is antipolitical. There were 40 prophets over one thousand years, but only one author and one story. The message never changes. Rabbis didn't exist at the time anything in the Towrah, Prophets, and Psalms was written. The Hebrew text universally exposes and condemns religion and politics, making it the opposite of what you claim.

As for "canonized," Yahowah provides a test in Dabarym / Deuteronomy for us to use to determine whether or not He inspired a prophet's revelations. It is not only foolproof, it is what I use to ascertain what can be trusted, such as Yasha'yah / Isaiah, and what should be discarded, such as Enoch. We ought not rely on the determination of others for what we can achieve on our own using God's advice.

"Are the Hebrew deity names not confusingly multiple, and the character of the deity referred to apparently different in different Old Testament books?"

Yahowah only has one name. It is revealed 7000 times. There are no exceptions. So you are again, wrong. Yahowah's character and message never change. Moreover, God does not offer an "Old Testament." According to Yahowah, there is and never will be a "New Testament." God is never confusing. He's forthright, consistent, brilliant, and articulate.

"I believe in God,"

You may believe in a god, but you do not know Yahowah. Based upon your opinions, I'd be pleased, but surprised, if that ever changes. Before you will be able to process the truth, you've got a world of lies to discard. This is the reason that I spent so much time explaining what is wrong with people's impressions about God before explaining who He is, what He is offering, and what He expects in return. You are not only a great distance apart, based upon God's testimony and yours, you are still headed away from Him.

"I was raised both Catholic and Jewish (my family converted wen I was a kid), so I have some insight into both traditions, but I am trying to bypass the established notions - to try and reach some conclusions on my own."

Actually, you are clinging to "established notions." Every assertion you have made reflects the errant positions men have tried to establish instead of actually reading what Yahowah had to say for Himself to ascertain the truth. Thus far, I haven't read anything that would indicate that you have deployed evidence and reason to deduce an independant conclusion based upon the textual evidence. Further, your opinions would only be valid on this topic once you have studied the text as I have done. Garbage in, garbage out. Read what Yahowah said and then either reject or accept His testimony as true or false. If you study His words and choose to reject what He has to say, God will become unreachable and unknowable to you.

After 18 years of translation and study, I have found Yahowah's testimony to be accurate and Paul's to be false. I've presented those translations and findings freely for those who are interested.

"In that sense I appreciate the spirit of your message, but I wonder how it is you're so certain and comfortable that the Hebrew Bible has more faith-centred authenticity than the Greek Bible. So much scholarly work has been done linking Hebrew Bible -referenced stories to earlier Sumerian legends, and there are suggestions of ancient Egyptian and West Canaanite influence too. Any thoughts or explanation would be appreciated."

Your hypocrisy is again showing and it isn't appealing. You don't have any respect or appreciation for what Yahowah or I have freely offered.

If you had listened and read rather then expressed your opinions, you would have known why I'm certain that the text of the Towrah, Prophets, and Pslams was inspired by Yahowah and why I have come to know with certainty that He is God. He proves His existence and authorship beyond any doubt. But to know this, you'd have to take the opposite approach: stop expressing your mantra and those you believe, and consider Yahowah's testimony.

Bible is based upon Babel. It means "to intermix, commingle, and confuse." As a name, it is both "Babylon" and "ba Ba'al - With the Lord (which is Satan's name and title)." If you prefer man's Greek to God's Hebrew, then Bible is based upon the Greek transliteration of the name of the Egyptian goddess Biblia.

I have no faith, and God has no use for it. You have completely missed my message and His, likely because it is in conflict with your own. As for me, I either know or don't know. Faith is utterly useless.

During the program, and far more comprehensively in the books, I explain why the Hebrew text is reliable and why the Greek text is unreliable. If you want my thoughts, rather than wanting me to consider yours, read my translations and research. To write this letter, you were on one of the sites that presents the books, after all.

I've read the Sumerian, Babylonian, and Assyrian legends as they were written on clay tablets and can tell you that there is only one point of minute concurrence, and even with it, the texts differ overwhelmingly more often than they agree. The ratio of discord to commonality is over 500 to 1. And there is no commonality with Egyptian and Canaanite legends. The Hebrew text universally condemns all three. But the bigger issue is the realization that the historical accuracy of the Hebrew text validates its authenticity. Read the scientific approach to Creation and the evidence for the nature of the Flood in Volume One of Yada Yah.

So long as you continue to place your faith in scholars, Eric, all of whom seem to be misleading you, you will never know Yahowah. While I'm very disappointed that you have written these assertions without considering Yahowah's position, I'm still going to provide some advice: read and then verify for yourself the translations found in the five volumes of An Introduction to God, the seven volumes of Yada Yah, in Questioning Paul, and the three volumes of Observations for Our Time, even in Prophet of Doom if you'd like to better understand my approach to evidence and reason, and then pose whatever questions you'd like, albeit bereft of predisposed options.

Hopefully, you will be willing to discard your impressions about Yahowah and His testimony. Hopefully, you'll closely examine and carefully consider His revelations. Hopefully, armed with evidence you'll apply reason and form valid conclusions. Hopefully, a few months from now after you have considered Yahowah's Towrah (Teaching), Prophets, and Psalms, you'll choose to become part of the Covenant and come to know and love Yah. Hopefully, you'll write again after all of that occurs.

Yada
