~ YahuShuah ~
Messiah of Heaven and Earth
"I was looking in the night visions and saw One like the Son of Enosh, coming with the clouds of the heavens! And he came to the Ancient of Days, and they brought Him near before Him. And to Him was given rulership and preciousnes and a reign, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His rule is an everlasting rule which shall not pass away, and His reign that which shall not be destroyed." (Daniel 7:13-14)
We must come out of the falsehood, the copy,
and enter the truth -
to know and understand the true Mashiach.
Exiting Mixed Worship
Family of Messiah is an assembly set-apart to יהוה.
Some time ago, we recognized that we were in the sin of apostasy and that we had to come out of it.
The sin of apostasy is mixed worship.
For a time, we did not realize that the true Mashiach (Messiah) is NOT the "Messiah" of the New Testament. Now that we have returned to the set-apart Hebrew path, we understand the truth.
We discovered that much of the New Testament writings were borrowed moral teachings from a time much earlier than the dating for Christianity. The New Testament writings are a mixture of these moral teachings, oral history/folklore, paganism, and the Hebrew Scriptures. The Hebrew Scriptures gives the writings a sense of credibility. (The best lie is one with just enough truth to make it believable.)
The New Testament - with its conjoining of pagan beliefs with the true Hebrew Scriptures - is mixed worship. In order to advance to the next step in our spiritual journey, we had to repent and separate ourselves completely from all forms of falsehood and apostasy.
For years, we tried to 'clean up' the New Testament - coming up with explanations for anti-Torah passages, ignoring discrepancies, and replacing words with more 'kosher' Hebrew words. We said that the New Testament had been 'tampered with', but still had the audacity to place the Set-Apart Name of YAHUAH and the word YahuShuah into the mixed up text, placing it right on top of the person and character of Jesus.
We can no longer keep trying to 'clean up' the New Testament, and we can no longer be a part of the New Testament belief. We have had to face the fact that the religion authorized by Constantine does not reflect the Laws of Elohim but instead teaches lawlessness and endorses pagan traditions.
To repent from the sin of apostasy, we had to come out of the world of Christianity, out of the New Testament, and worship only the Most High YAHUAH.
We had to symbolically cross back over to the period of the Essenes at Qumran in the second and first centuries BCE.
Our belief is based completely in the Torah/Tanakh. The Set-Apart Spirit guides the believers seeking the truth. The Dead Sea Scrolls serve as a companion text to the Tanakh, confirming and expounding upon the Word of Elohim.
We now concentrate more on the laws of Elohim as written in the Torah. The Torah is our life. We must obey the Commandments of the Most High so that we live!
We respect everyone's free will to choose their belief, but if it is not in obedience to the Commands of El Most High, then it is not for us.
The only way into the Renewed Covenant spoken of by YirmeYahu (Jeremiah) in Yirm/Jer. 31:31-33 is to believe in YAHUAH and listen to His Mashiach to obey.
The only way into the Reign of the Most High is to be in Covenant with Him.
Entering the Truth
Below are some excerpts from the Scrolls that have confirmed our Messiah the Teacher of Righteousness.

THE MESSIAH OF HEAVEN AND EARTH IS THE SON OF DAVID
The Mashiach was brought forth at the beginning of Creation in the compassion of YAHUAH. The Mashiach does the works of salvation and deliverance in the earth. He does the will of YAHUAH to save His people from distress. He is the Mashiach of Heaven and Earth.
When the people of Elohim need a great deliverance, the Spirit of Mashiach will come upon a chosen, prepared individual. This chosen and anointed one then carries out the work of Mashiach to save YAH's people. He is a messiah and savior for that generation.
The truth is that there was a Teacher of Righteousness among the Essenes at Qumran in the land of Yahudah (Judah) in the 1st century BCE. This Teacher is spoken about in the writings of the Prophets and Psalms. It is this Teacher that we have come to know.
“I also appoint him first-born, Highest of the sovereigns of the earth."
“But My trustworthiness And My kindness are with him, And in My Name his horn is exalted. And I shall set his hand on the sea, And his right hand on the rivers. He calls out to Me, ‘You are my Father, My El, and the rock of my deliverance.’ I also appoint him first-born, Highest of the sovereigns of the earth. I guard My kindness for him forever, And My covenant is steadfast with him. And I shall establish his seed forever, And his throne as the days of the heavens."
"And יהוה said to me, ‘What they have spoken is good. I shall raise up for them a Prophet like you out of the midst of their brothers. And I shall put My Words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him. And it shall be, the man who does not listen to My Words which He speaks in My Name, I require it of him."
Elohim leads His people by the voice of His prophets. He chooses one and puts His word into their mouth. One of His prophets that was sent is the Teacher of Righteousness whom He raised up for the people! He had the Spirit of Mashiach to save the people by leading them back to the Covenant.
Elohim has led us to this Prophet, the Messiah of Aaron and Yisrael, found in the Dead Sea Scrolls. He is the Teacher of Righteousness.
"And you children of Tsiyon, be glad and rejoice in יהוה your Elohim, for He shall give you the Teacher of Righteousness, and cause the rain to come down for you, the former rain and the latter rain, as before."
Praise be to El Most High! He has given us the Teacher of Righteousness, the Messiah!
The Name יהושה [YahuShuah] was confirmed to us in the year 2004. He is the Teacher of Righteousness who lived about 150-100 BCE and was persecuted at the time of Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.
It is this Teacher's voice that is heard in His many writings, such as the Messianic Hymn and the Thanksgiving Hymns. The fulfillment of YeshaYahu (Isaiah) 53 is reflected in the Thanksgiving Hymn of the Teacher of Righteousness. These writings by the hand of the Teacher have taught us that the law is a vital part of the Covenant.
In the Thanksgiving Hymns, the Teacher of Righteousness speaks of His Covenant with Elohim in great length. He prepared the people for the Covenant, and now, following his example, we can enter the true New Covenant of Elohim to be blessed and to be a blessing to others.
It is like choosing the right cup from many. There are many cups to drink from in the world of religions today, but only one cup leads to everlasting life and the defeat of evil!
The test is the word of Elohim in the Torah/Tanakh confirmed in the writings of the Teacher. Only with the correct cup - the right teachings from the Heavenly Messiah - can we be restored to our Maker through His Covenant.
The Messiah who lived in the first century BCE from Qumran is the Messiah of Heaven and earth. He is our Messiah, the One we shall hear and esteem. His teachings are the 'latter rain' we long awaited. Our thirst is quenched when we read His words throughout the Tanakh and the Scrolls. His words as written in the Thanksgiving Hymns are as rain poured upon our hearts - confirming that He is the One sent by יהוה.
A portion of a Thanksgiving Hymn of Messiah found at Qumran that confirms the Messiah of Heaven and earth:
"On the Thanksgiving-scroll, the hymns of the Teacher of righteousness are followed by a sequel: two hymns in the first person, composed by an author who tried to write in the same spirit. These additional hymns, written in the first century BCE, have already fallen victim to vandalism in Antiquity and were almost unreadable. Three newly discovered fragments from Cave 4, however, contain the same text and enable us to reconstruct the two additional hymns. This reconstruction was published in 1996 by Esther Eshel, who called it 'the self-glorification hymn'. The text of the first additional hymn, which still contains lacunas, can be read as follows"
I shall be reckoned with the angels, my dwelling is in the holy council. Who [...] and who has been despised like me? And who has been rejected of men like me? And who compares to me in enduring evil? No teaching compares to my teaching. For I sit [...] in heaven. Who is like me among the angels? Who could cut off my words? And who could measure the flow of my lips? Who can associate with me and thus compare with my judgment? I am the beloved of the King, a companion of the holy ones and none can accompany me. And to my glory none can compare, for I [...]. Neither with gold I will crown myself, nor with refined gold [...]
[4Q431 and 4Q427 fr.7]
The line in italics is a quote from Isaiah 53, the 'Song of the suffering servant'. This is one of the most mysterious, shocking and touching poems from the ancient world. It deals with an innocent man who is despised, maltreated, deported 'like a lamb to the slaughter', murdered and assigned a grave with the wicked. All this the suffering servant did voluntarily, bearing the sin of many others
Second part of fragment:
Rejoice, you righteous among the angels [...] in the holy dwelling, hymn [...] proclaim the sound of a ringing cry [...] in eternal joy, without [...] to establish the horn of His Messiah [...] to make known his power in might.
[4Q491, fr.11, col.1]
A SIGN THAT WE ARE IN THE LAST DAYS
THE FULFILLMENT OF THE PROPHECIES OF DANIEL IS AT HAND!
Messiah Revealed in the Year 1989!
We obtained a copy of the Dead Sea Scrolls translations in 2008, but it was not until the latter months of 2014 and beginnings of 2015 that we explored the findings of the Scrolls in greater detail. This is when we discovered the true Messiah of heaven and earth found hidden in the Scrolls.
It is this Messiah who was revealed to me (Ruth) years earlier in 1989. I saw the Messiah seated in the Heaven as described in the Book of the Prophet Daniel. The Dead Sea Scrolls confirmed and explained my vision.
Daniel 7:9 “I was looking until thrones were set up, and the Ancient of Days was seated. His garment was white as snow, and the hair of His head was like clean wool, His throne was flames of fire, its wheels burning fire."
In 1989, after my life was spared, I saw the heavenly Messiah seated on His Throne, His clothes were brilliant white, flowing to the floor. His hair was white and about shoulder length. Like Daniel said, it looked “like clean wool.” I saw Him, and we looked at one another eye-to-eye. Then, I awoke.
The Messiah seated in the heaven was revealed to me. He is over the heaven and the earth, the Messiah of the Most High יהוה. He is alive and reigns from heaven on behalf of the set-apart ones in the earth. It is He who fulfilled Daniel 7:9.
Messiah Revealed Again One Year Later in 1990
In the Summer of 1990, I heard in the early morning a voice that told me, “Today, you shall see my face in the sky.”
We (Michael and I) went for our morning praise walk, keeping in mind what I had heard. I kept my eyes in the sky the entire time. When we made it back home, I felt like "Where is He?" Just then, Michael pointed out some red clouds, one over us and the other further away. With joy, I started gazing at the clouds and there He was! His face began to come into focus, and the Messiah revealed Himself to me. This time His hair was dark. It looked almost like a portrait, but He was alive. He then spoke to me (through my mind, no lips) and introduced me to someone that was in the other red clouds further away. He said to me, “This is your High Angel.” I looked over at him acknowledging him. I stared at them, and then they began to dissipate. The red clouds went away. Michael could see the red cloud formations but not the images.
I believe this was the Messiah reigning in the earth. The Kingdom of the heaven has come to earth. The reign of Elohim is among the set-apart ones of His people. I believe that He showed up, not like a dream when one sleeps, but in a vision of reality.
Daniel 7:13-14 “I was looking in the night visions and saw One like the Son of Enosh, coming with the clouds of the heavens! And He came to the Ancient of Days, and they brought Him near before Him. And to Him was given rulership and preciousness and a reign, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His rule is an everlasting rule which shall not pass away, and His reign that which shall not be destroyed."
I believe that the Messiah of Heaven and earth has been with us our entire journey. He led us to the entrance of His Covenant and in the rebuilding His House. He shall reign over us and with us forever! Elohim saved the Dead Sea Scrolls until now, for we are the people who have been birthed of the latter day.
The time is now for all to become part of His Covenant so that your life will be spared. There shall be life where the River flows.
Yehezqel/Ezekiel 47:9 “And it shall be that every swarming creature, wherever the stream goes, shall live. And there shall be very many fish, for these waters shall go there, and they are healed. And wherever the stream flows all shall live."
I thank YAH, for the many scientists, researchers, archaeologists, and scholars for their works in bringing together the hidden works of Elohim and our believers from long ago. The Most High reserved these teachings until now. It is all His timing, He is Sovereign.
