Warning: Danger, Danger!
By
James Scott Trimm



The Torah says:

1 And the people were as murmurers, speaking evil in the ears of YHWH: and when
YHWH heard it, His anger was kindled. And the fire of YHWH burnt among them, and
devoured in the uttermost part of the camp.
2 And the people cried unto Moshe, and Moshe prayed unto YHWH, and the fire abated.
3 And the name of that place was called Taberah, because the fire of YHWH burnt
among them.
4 And the mixed multitude that was among them fell a lusting, and the children of
Yisra’el also wept on their part, and said, Would that we were given flesh to eat!
5 We remember the fish, which we were wont to eat in Egypt for nought; the cucumbers,
and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the garlic.
6 But now our soul is dried away; there is nothing at all: we have nought, save this
manna to look to.
(Numbers 11:1-6 HRV)

When the Assembly of Israel came up out of Egypt, there were many who missed the nice things of Egypt, They preferred the life in Egypt to the path YHWH had laid out for them. Many of them wanted to go back to Egypt.

Likewise in the current exodus from Babylon, there are many who miss the old customs and practices of Christendom and would rather return to Churchianity.  It is only natural for people to miss their old life, to have warm fuzzy feelings and childhood memories about Christmas, Easter etc.  And there are leaders who are even now preparing to tell these people what they want to hear! 

In recent months I have warned you about leaders in the Hebrew Roots movement who are planning to lead you back toward Churchianity.  I now have inside information that a group of well known leaders in the Hebrew Roots movement are even now formulating a plan to attempt to sanitize Easter.  This group of leaders hopes to introduce Easter Sunday observance this coming year!  Some of them are even trying to formulate an argument that the word “Easter” is not really related to the goddess “Ishtar”.  Even now these leaders are debating among themselves whether to sell this idea under the name of “Resurrection Sunday”; “Firstfruits Sunday” or even “Easter Sunday”. 

Even in the First Century there were those who sought to return to keeping their pagan holidays.  Paul warns:

8 For then, when you did not know Eloah, you served those that from their nature, are
not Eloah.
9 But now that you know Eloah, or rather you are known from Eloah, you have again
returned, concerning those weak and poor elements: and again desire to be made
subject to them.
10 Days, and months, and times, and years, you observe.
11 I fear: lest vainly, I have labored among you.
(Gal. 4:8-11 HRV)

Do not follow these leaders back into Babylon.

As a dog that returns to his vomit,
so is a fool that repeats his folly.
(Prov. 26:11 HRV)

And as Kefa writes

20 For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world, through the knowledge of the Adon and Savior Yeshua the Messiah, they are again entangled in them and overcome: the latter end is worse for them than the beginning.
21 For it would have been better for them, not to have known The Way of righteousness, than after they have known it, to turn from the Set-Apart commandment delivered to them.
22 But this has happened to them according to the true proverb: The dog returns to his own vomit, and the sow that had washed, to her wallowing in the mire.
(2Kefa 2:20-21)

As most of you know, our only car was totaled when I was T-boned by a speeding minivan, throwing me into a roll over.
 
While I managed to walk away, our only car is a complete loss.  In addition and I am unable to drive, partly because my 6' 2" frame is in far to much pain to crouch into a car, and also because I am on powerful pain pills.   

The work, however, continues... the fact that I cannot drive, or do much of anything else means I will have even more time for research, writing and online ministry.

We have had a lot of unanticipated expenses in connection with my car crash on Friday.

There is so much to the truth, but then again who cares?

Well, I do for one, but sometimes I feel like Alice in Wonderland. Christmas, Christianity, Easter, we eat from the fruit of our lips, probably being the most important of these and while Christians feel they are to be honest and speak what they see, they seem not to comprehend or maybe not want to comprehend that in speaking what we see seems to get worse and not better as we are to come back with a good report. 

There are some groups in Israel today that really want Yeshua to come back and be taken away in a pretribulation rapture, so instead of being led by the Spirit, to make things better, they end up going after prophecy believing that because it is in scripture it has to be God's will or something? It is one of the fruits of Christianity and while most would say they do not gamble, they gamble everything in a pretrib rapture instead of working to fix things.

James, maybe you have done this and maybe not, but my suggestion is to write a simple to read booklet on Christianity, which takes us to Christmas and Easter and a pretrib rapture and maybe some other things, which should end up taking us to being a royal priesthood that only speaks or writes what the Spirit gives us to speak or write (otherwise we are not to speak and write as it is confusing to others when we are really speaking for the Spirit and not speaking from the Spirit and not just our beliefs or thoughts)? 

Here is the big thing that Christianity does not understand, which is we are here to overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the words of our testimony, which is the very words we speak or write and we either speak words of life or words of destruction. 

I also find that not just Peter, but each of us were given the keys to the kingdom, but it is up to each one of us, what we do with it, which is the real test of faith to see if we really believe or do not believe. 

So I ask with respect to perhaps prepare something that explains the facts, not with Hebrew terms, which are difficult for many to understand especially as this needs to be written to Christians, instead of a letter that Paul wrote to the Hebrews, lets create something of a letter to the Christians, before it is tooooooo late?

Surely this wouldn't be Jim Staley and his flock would it?!?!?!?!?!

K Porth,

Not to my knowledge.

Paul is confusing to people. Mostly, it may be simply because he was not writing his sentences, and they seem to go on, and on, and on . . . . . When he did write something, he mentioned how LARGE his letters were.

He's a blazing intellect, and the person trying to keep up had to keep writing as fast a possible. Then, a Christian translator had a stab at deciphering the Hebrew into Greek, and now people are roasting Paul as a heretic.

We Natsarim have to stick together, and I count Paul as a beloved brother. Everybody has an opinion. In the final analysis, the only opinion that matters eternally is that of Yahusha. Try to pursue that opinion, and you're always going to land on your feet.

Comment by Dr Sarah Carrol on December 16, 2013 at 8:34pm

Personally, I don't think I have a real problem with Paul as long as it is kept in context and what I mean by that is that no one really knows what Paul did or said when he came to a city? I am sure he learned many things as he went a long. What we do have is some letters written after he left, but if we view those letters as the only communication, then everything becomes blurred quickly. 

I see Paul as a slightly "red necked" brother, who struggled with many things and even teachings he had and held as truth. One thing of value that I see is that it was we know that from the time on the road to Damascus to the time he started in ministry was some 12 years, but we do not know exactly what he learned in those 12 years being different then what he grew up with for example? 

Then again through Christianity everything was skewed and made things even more blurry taking people down a path that was not designed for them. 

So, here we are today! We have a whole lot of Christians that totally believe what they have is the truth that is horribly out of context even with the OT in general as Christians really do not understand even the covenants and the power there was in the covenants, let alone having a better covenant, which really started in Acts chapter 2. We have the four Gospels, but that really was a part of the OT. There needs to be something that connects the old with the new, where we are supposed to be living epistles, which goes far beyond memorizing scripture and repeating it.

I've never heard Shaul called a redneck... that's almost comical....   there is a lot of confusion I agree.  Many Christians do keep the weighty matters of the Torah.  

Comment by James Trimm on December 16, 2013 at 11:54pm

I do not see Paul as a "redneck"... quite to the contrary.... Kefa the fisherman perhaps... Paul was highly educated, studied at the feet of Gamliel... if he had not become a ringleader of the Nazarenes, he would almost certainly have become one of the sages whose opinions we read in the Mishnah. 

Paul's writings are formatted according to the formal structures of midrashic exegesis, and are filled with uses of Hillel's seven rules. 

Paul is the exact opposite of a "redneck".

Comment by James Trimm on December 17, 2013 at 1:42am

Paul was absolutely sophisticated.

Comment by Dr Sarah Carrol on December 17, 2013 at 4:54am

I will try and make it simpler? It was not about Paul and me seeing him as a redneck. 

It was about :
