The Central Teaching Of The Hebrew Apostolic Institute / Congregation
Can Be Found In The Torah And The Other Writings.
Deuteronomy 6:4-9, Mark 12:28-34
Dr. Lennie Marx (Shaliach)
|Within this central teaching are instructions: |
Hear, O Israel: The L-rd is Our G-d, The L-rd is One. And thou shalt love thy L-rd thy G-d with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words shall be, which I command thee this day, upon thy heart: and thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thy hand, and they shall be for frontlets between thine eyes, and thou shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thy house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. And thou shalt write (them) upon the doorpost of thy house, and upon thy gates (Tanakh).
Malachi the last writing prophet gives us a timely reminder. Be mindful of the Teaching of My servant Moses, whom I charged at Horeb with laws and rules for Israel. Lo, I will send the prophet Elijah to you before the coming of the awesome, fearful day of the L-rd. He shall reconcile parents with children and children with parents, so that when I come, I do not strike the whole land with utter destruction. Malachi 3:22, 23 Tanakh.
Elijah's message will be in the form of a warning to all Israel not to take the mark of the beast by assimilation with the nations, but rather to remain faithful to the law of Moses, which includes the whole body of Jewish writings.
At Shavu'ot Peter preached a message to all the house of Israel, which includes the formula for immersion. Anyone who is willing to obey the central teaching of The Torah is welcome to come to the water and be converted, calling on the name of the L-rd. Acts 2:21-47, 3:19-26. KJV
Acts 2:38 is not the fulfillment of Matthew 28:19.
Acts 2:38 is the formula for immersion that was given to all the house of Israel for the remission of sins. It includes repentance, total immersion in water, G-d's presence with accompanying signs, and it must be accepted before anyone can be assured that they have received the gospel attested to by Yehoshuha (Mark 16:15-20), and is ready for the translation.
Matthew 28:19 is not intended to be used as a formula for immersion. This scripture will be fulfilled after the translation during the times of refreshing from the presence of the L-rd, Acts 3:19-26. Its misapplication now has and will continue to result in a loss of many souls who are kept from entering the congregation of G-d.
If you have taken the "Search For Truth Bible Course" or one similar to it be advised that it teaches a number of serious errors one of which is that Matthew 28:19 and Acts 2:38 are the same. This error was introduced by the (so-called) St. Ambrose. In teaching this Acts 2:38 has to be altered to read, "In the name of Jesus" rather than "In the name of Jesus Christ" in order to fit Matthew 28:19 into the Church Age, rather than where Yehoshuha intended it to be, in the times of refreshing, otherwise known as the thousand years of peace, Acts 3:19. This false teaching gives birth to another falsehood that "Jesus" is the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. The word Christ when left out of Acts 2:38 makes all who are immersed this way Anti-Christ. The word Christ, in Hebrew is Moshiach. Keep in mind that John wrote in his Epistles that those against Moshiach were already working against Acts 2:38 during the very time he was writing.
(1 John 2:18 KJV) Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
(1 John 2:22 KJV) Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus (Yehoshuha) is the Christ (Moshiach)? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
(1 John 4:3 KJV) And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ (Yehoshuha Moshiach) is come in the flesh is not of G-d: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
(2 John 1:7 KJV) For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ (Yehoshuha Moshiach) is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
Joseph was instructed to give Jesus a Hebrew name, Yehoshuha, (Matthew 1:21 KJV) "And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS, (Yehoshuha): for he shall save his people from their sins."
The work of the Moshiach is yet future during the "Times of Refreshing" (Acts 3:19 KJV) "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the L-rd; And he shall send Jesus Christ (Yehoshuha Moshiach) , which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which G-d hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began. For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the L-rd your G-d raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people."
The Moshiach will come during the times of refreshing when there is no sin on the earth, (Revelation 20:1-3 KJV) "And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season."
All who wait for the Moshiach have the knowledge that when the Moshiach comes he will not repeat the work of salvation, which has already been completed, but will come for the purpose of Shalom, Peace, (Hebrews 9:28 KJV) "So Christ (Moshiach) was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation."
Matthew 28:19 is the place where the mark of the beast 666 + + + is applied by pouring water on the forehead of the victim and making the sign of the cross three times (The sign of the cross has six points).
"the abomination that maketh desolate." (Dan. 11:31)
The victim is usually an infant. The Priest says "I baptize you in the name of the Father (+) and of the Son (+) and of the Holy Ghost (+)." Revelation 13:18 encourages the reader who has understanding to count the number of the beast. for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred three score and six." 666 + + +
In Revelation 18:4 The voice from heaven says "..Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues."
"For the word of the L-rd is right; and all His works [are done] in truth." Psalm 33:4 KJV
