The Project

Kristin, Natalia, Ela Yesterday I had a project done at my place that I thought would not get done. I had purchased an electric trike and I needed a place to put it out of the weather. I had purchased a carport about 5 months ago and had not been able to put it together by myself, so it sat...

Should Christians Celebrate Christmas? – Part 1

This post contains a selection of internet pieces written by different men to demonstrate why they have chosen to not celebrate Christmas. All of these men are professing believers, though they have approached this topic from a variety of perspectives. I hope to show you that it is possible to...

Christmas and the Test of Truth

Some of my earliest and fondest childhood memories were of Christmas. Each December my parents would go pick out a live Christmas tree and bring it home. I still remember the heavy metal stand, painted green. It had thumb screws on three sides of the base to tighten down on the trunk of the tree....

Lovers of Truth

I recently went out to Amazon’s website to retrieve a link to one of my books for a fellow saint who asked if it was available in Kindle format. I discovered someone had left a review (one star out of a possible five stars) on the book. It is quite common for books that focus on Bible doctrine to...

Mammon’s Heavy Burden

I had an interesting event happen last night. I brought my dog Champ in because it was going to be cold. Whenever the temperature gets down to near freezing I bring my dog in. He sleeps on top of a sleeping bag on my bed, while I sleep in a recliner next to my desk. Now those unfamiliar with my...

In What Ways Are Women Restricted From Speaking in Church?

A brother in Christ wrote to ask: I would like to ask you a question on women’s roles in the church setting. I agree with you that women should not teach men, even in cyberspace. You are a brave man to say something so bold and “contentious” as this. Let God be true and every man a liar. You will...

“In Quietness and Confidence Shall be Your Strength…”

Isaiah 30:15For thus says Yahweh GOD, the Holy One of Israel: "In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and confidence shall be your strength." Most of the Christians I know would like to approach life from a position of strength. In our current state of prosperity and ease, however,...

The Garment of Humility

I had suspected for years that Yahweh might one day require me to experience imprisonment even as that other Joseph, the son of Jacob, did many years ago. God’s ways of perfecting His sons have not changed. A man must pass through many humiliating, sorrowful, and distressing circumstances in order...

Have You Been Played Lately?

Played: (slang) – manipulated, exploited. Christians should be the most discerning people in this world. After all, they have the indwelling Spirit of Christ who is readily available to disclose to them truth and error. Those who have been born again of the Holy Spirit have been translated...

Grave Men – Part 2

Note: Following is an older post that I believe has some text that would be valuable to many believers in Yahshua. As you read it I pray that you might be helped to have compassion for the many men and women you see on the street each day. If you would like to be a minister to them, but don’t know...

EnTRUSTing

I Peter 2:21-23For you have been called for this purpose, since Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example for you to follow in His steps, Who committed no sin, nor was any deceit found in His mouth; and while being reviled, He did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no...

I had eye surgery yesterday so I will not be able to post today. I appreciate your understanding. Thanks.

Drowning in Deception – Part 1

Revelation 12:15And the serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, so that he might cause her to be swept away with the flood. The book of Revelation conveys truth through symbolism. The serpent is symbolic of Satan. He is also called the dragon, which is a type of winged...

Ten Questions Christians Can’t Answer

People of God, I came across a video that was called "Ten Questions Christians Can't Answer." I watched it and was able to answer every question. I wonder though, if the readers of this blog could do the same, or are you often left to the whims and false controversies of the world around you? It...

A True Romantic Betrothal Example

Jonathan Lindvall Matthew & Maranatha Chapman were married in 1988. They consciously purposed to offer their lives and wedding as a demonstration of their understanding of the relationship of the Lord Jesus and His bride. For them, being made ready themselves for the Lord as members of His...

A Spectacle Before Spectators

This article is written for those precious saints of God who have been in trials and fiery furnaces and wilderness places for some time now. I have noted a peculiar thing about some of these people, as I have noted it in my own experience. God has placed many in trials that have drawn a lot of...

When God’s Word Tarries

Many of God’s people, and more than a few who read this blog, are in a season of waiting upon the word of God to be fulfilled in their lives. The promises of God have tarried far longer than anticipated. In many instances situations are becoming dire, and the promises of God appear ready to fall...

With Malice and Forethought

JP Morgan (Photographed by Edward Steichen in 1903. A trick of light was used to make the chair’s armrest appear as a dagger.) A man always has two reasons for what he does -- a good one, and the real one. JP Morgan I have been making a regular petition to the Father recently that He might reveal...

The Luciferian Foundation of America

I know the title of this writing will upset many, but the illusion of America being a Christian nation needs to be cast down in this hour that a righteous remnant might come forth in devotion to Christ who purchased them from OUT OF every tribe and tongue and nation. There are at present...

The Usage of Divine Names

Joseph Herrin As you read through the books and articles on this website you will notice that thenames Yahweh and Yahshua are used to refer to the members of the Godheadknown as the Father and the Son. Some explanation is needed so that those whoare not familiar with these names will have...

Divorced From Truth – Part 5

Ecumenicism - Another Jesus, Another Gospel II Corinthians 11:3-4But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ. For if one comes and preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached,...

Divorced From Truth – Part 4

No Perfect Bible Translation After sending out the first part of this teaching series, a sister in Christ wrote to me to ask me to provide further information on Bible translations. Some have wanted to know specifically what errors are present in various translations, and some have requested that...

Divorced From Truth – Part 3

The Distinctiveness of Christ II Corinthians 13:5Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Yahshua Christ is in you - unless indeed you fail the test? I would like to give you a test of spiritual discernment. Recently I...

Divorced From Truth – Part 2

Jesus Christ, Yahshua the Messiah - The ONLY Way to God John 14:6Yahshua said to him, "I am THE way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” John 10:7-9So Yahshua said to them again, "Truly, truly, I say to you, I am THE door of the sheep. All who came before Me...

Despising DoctrineJoseph Herrin II Thessalonians 2:13Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Yahshua Christ and our gathering together to Him…, let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first… Apostasy: to divorce from truth The...

Carbon Footprint

Joseph Herrin Since 1999 I have had no debt. Not a penny. My lifestyle in recent years has been much more environmentally friendly than earlier days. When you have less money to spend you certainly tend to be less wasteful. I know that there are lean days coming for multitudes of people who have...

Yahweh, Yahweh – Look What You’ve Done For Me!

Joseph Herrin Following are a couple of testimonies that speak of God’s faithfulness in providing a place to live. God at times will try His children that their faith might be perfected, and that we might also come to truly appreciate the things we have. How many Christians lay down each night in...
