Be Set Free from the Spiritual Occupation of Rome!

 

Many people may find themselves in Israel but traveling on a Roman road. Out of Rome but still on the Roman road – this is spiritual Roman captivity over millions of people.

People are dying from a lack of knowledge. The Almighty willed that we all be humbled and delivered. We must get knowledge and understand that we must obey the laws of Elohim and come into the true Renewed Covenant. This is the Way of Set-Apartness – the Set-Apart Highway.

"Yerushalayim is built as a city that is bound together, Where the tribes have come up, The tribes of Yah, A witness to Yisra’ĕl, To give thanks to the Name of יהוה.” (Teh/Ps. 122:3-4) 

We have been on a spiritual journey seeking truth for over 25 years. It seems like every year, we are progressing closer and closer as the Set-Apart spirit leads us.

We received the Hebrew Name of the Almighty and the Messiah in 2004 and returned to keeping His laws and principles as our brothers, the Jews. Even then, I felt as if we made it back to YAH but still weren't quite there.

 

It was like we had come to the River but had not crossed over into the Promised Land. Something was still missing. So, we continued to walk after Him being led by the Spirit of Elohim. YAHUAH led us to the missing pieces of our journey, and those pieces were found in the Dead Sea Scrolls.

 

The problem was that we were still in mixed worship. We were in Israel, but on a Roman Road.

There is a difference between traveling on a Roman Road of life and traveling on the Set-Apart Highway of life. Both roads can exist in Israel, but the Roman Road was built for the Romans. The Set-Apart Highway is for the people of YAH.

The Set-Apart Highway

"Your way, O Elohim, is in Set-apartness; Who is a great El like Elohim?" (Teh/Ps. 77:13)

 

"And there shall be a highway, and a way, and it shall be called “The Way of Set-apartness.” The unclean does not pass over it, but it is for those who walk the way, and no fools wander on it." (Yesh/Is. 35:8)

"Thus said יהוה, “Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; and find rest for yourselves. But they said, ‘We do not walk in it.’ " (Yirm/Jer. 6:16)

The Set-Apart Highway is Yahadut – the set-apart belief as outlined in the Scriptures. It is the way of life set forth in the Torah given by Elohim. It is the Road of Righteous, the path of obedience to the Most High YAHUAH. It is the road that leads to Elohim and brings life, peace, and joy.

The Way of Set-Apartness:

 

  • Believe in and call on the GREAT AND AWESOME Name of the Creator יהוה [YAH-OO-AH]. 

  • Believe the Mashiach is יהושה [YahuShuah], the Teacher of Righteousness Who lived in the 1st century BCE. He suffered greatly, but YAH saved Him from death, and He lived to tell of YAH’s great works (Psalm 116:8, 118:18). [ref. Thanksgiving Hymns of DSS]

  • Follow King Messiah YahuShuah, the Branch who will guide us and build the House of Elohim in the last day (Zech. 3:8; Hag. 1:12). 

  • Enter the Covenant of the Most High יהוה. Through this Covenant, we become the people of Elohim, and He becomes our Elohim and Master. The New Covenant is Yirm/Jer. 31:33. Our sins are forgiven because He placed His laws within our hearts to obey.

  • Obey the Laws and Principles (Torah) of the Most High for they are everlasting. 

  • Keep His Sabbath - the 7th day - and make it set-apart (Shem/Ex. 20:8-11).

 

  • Keep all the Appointed times listed in Wayyiqra/Leviticus 23. All Sabbaths are set-apart observances.

  • Make offerings to YAHUAH. Besides monetary offerings, we make offerings of praise and thanksgiving, as well as kindness and righteousness!  (Shem/Ex. 29:28; Bem/Num. 5:9-10,18; Deb/Deut. 12:5-6; Yehez/Ezek. 44:30.

  • Do not touch the unclean. Keep pure. Obey guidelines given in Wayyiqra/Leviticus 11-15.

The Laws and the Prophets are the complete Word of life and peace.  The Torah is our Crown of Life, and therefore, we uphold it. The Torah, in simplicity, is the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20). We will teach and follow them always for they are our life. Without law and obedience, we perish.

“How would a young man cleanse his path. To guard it according to Your word?

I have sought You with all my heart; Let me not stray from Your commands!

I have treasured up Your word in my heart, That I might not sin against You.

Blessed are You, O יהוה! Teach me Your laws.” (Teh/Ps. 119:9-12)

The Roman Road

In ancient times, Rome conquered and pillaged many different nations to enlarge their empire. In their wave of conquests, they conquered the chosen people of Yisrael. They destroyed Yerushalayim, the set-apart city, and attempted to erase all that was Hebrew and set-apart. They destroyed the set-apart place, burned set-apart Hebrew books, including Torah scrolls, and took many people captive.

Rome occupied the land of promise turning it into a Roman province. They built many structures in the land, and they are well-known for the roads they built for their troops to travel.

As an analogy, we will use the Roman road to depict the opposite of the set-apart highway. The Roman Road was built in Israel by the Romans and for the Romans.

The Path of the Romans:

  • Do not call on the Name of the Almighty YAHUAH. Instead, use God and Lord which replaced the true, set-apart Name of the Father.

  • Believe in and call on name jesus instead of true Messiah YahuShuah. Some placing set-apart name YahuShuah on person of Christ in the NT.

  • No obedience to Torah, the Laws of Elohim. It is taught that His Laws are no longer valid, that they have been done away with (calling it the “Old” Testament), and that we no longer have to obey the Word of YAH.

  • Not in Covenant with the Most High. The New Covenant is Yirm/Jer. 31:33 – the Laws of Elohim are written on our hearts. The New Testament is not the same as the New Covenant, for the NT teaches not to obey the Laws.

  • Believe and follow the New Testament which was highly influenced by and infiltrated with pagan mythology (and Roman politics).

  • No knowledge of the Dead Sea Scrolls which tells of the true Messiah YahuShuah – and has nothing to do with the NT.

  • Do not observe the set-apart days and appointed times commanded by YAH (Lev. 23).

  • Do not keep the 7th day set-apart. Instead keep the first day of the week which derived from sun-worship (sun-day) and other holidays originating in paganism (such as Christmas & Easter).

  • Belief system and practices that have origins in paganism with laws, teachings, and doctrines of man.

“How do you say, ‘We are wise, and the Torah of יהוה is with us’? But look, the false pen of the scribe has worked falsehood."  (Yirm/Jer. 8:8)

Surprisingly, many who believe they have already come out of Rome actually may still be on the Roman Road. The New Testament is a Roman construct. It is the book of Christianity telling the story of their Christ and forming the basis for their anti-Torah doctrines.

 

Placing the Set-Apart Name of the Mashiach YahuShuah upon the person and character of the Christ is “mixed worship” – mixing set-apartness with falsehood.

 

Anyone still following the New Testament is on the Roman Road,

even though they may be in "Israel."

 

This is where we were for a long time until YAHUAH opened our eyes.
