Matt 4:18-20

18 And Yehshua, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea because they were fishers.


20 And they straightway left their nets and followed Him.

Today I want to contrast how Yehshua taught His disciples to help His Father build His family in comparison to satan’s efforts to do his own fishing for men.

Satan has been busy teaching his own disciples to fish as well and he has many nets in place to catch people and to keep them in in his pond.

Revelations 12:9 says that he would deceive the whole world.

His numbers are vast and the numbers of the true saints are a small flock.

This is because our Creator was not looking to build His temple with quantity of numbers, but rather with quality of character.

He built it with those who wanted His character and came to Him to learn it.

In order to understand this, you must seek to understand why satan was allowed to deceive man-kind.

He was only given conditional power to influence our thoughts.

The condition was in our ability to prevent him from having this power of influence over our minds.

If we chose to hearken to our Creator, He agreed to guide us into His truth and to protect us from the advisory.

The choice to be sifted by satan was in our own hands because we could have chosen our Creator’s protection from Him.

We were given the choice to prevent him from having deceptive powers over us.

If we choose not to be taught by our Creator and if we choose to not obey His voice and to decide right from wrong for ourselves, based on our own understanding, He then gives us over to satan’s influence.

This was the case with Job. Job was keeping the commandments on a physical plain and receiving benefits that are set in place for doing so, but he was also leaning on his own understanding.

And his righteousness was based his uprightness and not on his Creator’s righteousness. He was right in his own eyes so he was allowed to be sifted.

The self-existing, almighty Elohiym has been building a family from those who wanted Him. This was His purpose for creating us.

This life that He gave us is a testing ground and a proving ground.

Satan has been a tool to help weed out the tares and also to give those who were coming to their Creator’s call incentive to make sure that their Elohiym was fortifying their lives with His banner of protection.

We need to fear not having His protection.

We must hunger to be in agreement with Him so that we are protected from satan’s nets.

Man-kind has not had this fear.

YEHWEH had to give us free will to accomplish what He purposed and satan was necessary during this first phase, just as he will be used again in the future when he is let loose for a short season.

The reason why satan was cast here and empowered for this era of time was by design to help our Creator develop a certain mind set within those who will become His eternal family.

These have overcome by choosing to be molded in His image.

Because of this choice to walk in agreement with Him on His path, the blood of His Son was applied on their behalf and their transgressions were atoned for.

Satan has also been a tool to keep those who rejected their Creator’s truth captive in his deception.

This will be a witness against them when they are resurrected to judgment.

The witness is that they loved the darkness rather than the light.

And he has been very successful in keeping the world deceived indeed.

But his success was only possible because we chose to go into captivity by rejecting the truth that would have set us free.

And those of us born in the captivity chose to remain it by continuing in the lies, all except a small flock who left the captivity by coming to the light.

These left their lives to live for their Creator’s Kingdom.

Many others were called out of the captivity but they stopped coming to YEHWEH’s call they and they returned to the captivity.

The light was just too much for them because the darkness was more palatable to them.

His instructions were a burden to them, rather than a delight.

Those who are in the captivity chose to believe the lies instead of believing their Creator because the lies were less disruptive to their life styles.

They loved their lives unto death instead of forsaking all for His kingdom’s sake.

The book of Revelations tells us that the saints loved not their lives, they wanted a future life and they lived their lives to have that future life and their reward is about here.

Those sent into captivity preferred deciding right from wrong for themselves so they rejected the instructions given to them.

They rejected letting their Creator teach them right from wrong and they made make believe gods and make believe images of the messiah to hide behind and to follow after.

They followed after satan’s perverted images of Elohiym and His Son.

Talking about fishing for men, satan has been doing a lot of fishing indeed and his disciples are on every street corner.

His disciples are in nearly every Christian household teaching their children a different path than the one that was given by their Messiah.

They are teaching their children a path that came from the lies of Saul of Tarsus who was satan’s primary disciple.

Satan has every conceivable hook and net set up to draw and to keep Israel in captivity but there is still the same offer to be set free being made available.

Yehshua is standing at the door and knocking. He became His Father’s logos just as each of us must fight to become His logos.

His logos is the truth that will set you free from satan’s captivity.

His logos is truth.

The truth is defined by His every word that He gave us to live by and it describes and teaches us His character through His seven spirits.

Living His word teaches us His very thought process that leads us to His righteousness.

The truth is given to us to help Him mold us in His image so that our nature is transformed to be in agreement with His nature.

It is being made in His image through His instructions that will set you free.

Of course this is not even possible if you do not fear being wrong because if you do not fear being in captivity and you think that you already have the truth; you will not be able to even consider that you are in captivity to the lies.

The deceived do not know that they are deceived. They are deceived because they did not fear not being deceived.

They did not fear being in disagreement with their Creator and His purpose for creating them.

Matt 9:12-13

12 But when Yehshua heard this, He said to them, they that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick do.

13 But go and learn what this means, DESIRE MERCY and not sacrifice: because I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

I have spoken on what this word mercy means in other segments so I won’t go into this in detail today.

It is an important topic though because He was instructing them and is instructing us to go and learn what it means to desire mercy.

The point I want to make today is those who think they have the truth are not going to listen to the truth that would set them free because they are already wise in their own understanding and they already think they have it.

They are already righteous and He cannot call them because of this, they will not hear.

Christianity is full of this self-righteous mind-set. They think they are good to go because they believe in false salvation doctrine while full-well rejecting what His word says.

They will not hear so He cannot call them.

You cannot save someone who already thinks that they are saved who already thinks that they are on safe ground.

You can force them but He is not going to force people to choose Him.

This was the case with the Sadducees and the Pharisees of that day; they were wise in their own understanding.

They felt they were already righteous because they were Abraham’s children and they were good to go so they would not listen to the truth that would have set them free.

They thought that they were already free by being Abraham’s seed just as Christianity thinks they are already free by following the lies of Saul.

But they were in bondage to their religion and they did not walk with their Creator in sprit and in truth.

The reason being, they had omitted the weightier matters of the law; JUDGMENT, MERCY AND FAITH AND THEY DID NOT FEAR BEING WRONG.

They did not fear because they already thought that they were right.

Yehshua told them that they were right that they were Abraham’s seed, but they were in bondage because His Father’s logos had no place in them.

The same is true with those professing His name with their mouth apart from living His instructions in the false religion of Christianity.

They are in bondage because His Father’s logos has no place in them.

They have rejected the His word that would have led them to His logos so they are captive to satan’s lies.

Here is a brief description of these three weightier matters of the law that they had omitted from their lives, they are the same three weightier matters that those in Christianity have omitted from their lives today;

Judgment is referring to YEHWEH’s righteous judgment.

It is the judgment that must rule over our lives and it is the same judgment that we are to judge all things by.

Yehshua tells us that all will be judged by the logos of Elohiym as well. It defines His righteousness and His righteous judgment.

It is not judgment based on our own understanding. We are not to judge based on our own judgment but we are to measure all things by His word.

The Sadducees and Pharisees had plenty of judgment that was based on their own righteousness and so does Christianity today.

Mercy is referring to having true brokenness over our transgressions and brokenness over the transgressions of man-kind in general for rejecting their Creator.

It is the kind of brokenness that cries out for His righteous judgment to come to the earth so that His will would be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Faith is referring to truly letting His word accomplish its purpose in our lives.

It is putting every aspect of our lives under His control.

It is believing Him and it is trusting in Him because we believe Him.

True faith is proven by our actions.

If our faith is real, we will act on believing His promises by living the conditions that He put forth to us to cause His promises to come to pass in our lives.

The 7th year Sabbath that we are in is a good example of this, but man has rejected this commandment as well.

It is true faith that identifies who the saints of the Most High are, coupled with keeping His commandments.

I said that satan has been busy doing his own fishing.

He and his servants have some very clever fishing strategies indeed but they are simple to identify if you just believe the words of your Creator.
His word defines what is false.

His word tells us who is false. He says that anyone who takes you away from Him and His path is false and must be put to death.

This certainly would include Saul of Tarsus who has led billions from keeping His statutes that are forever.

Satan’s hooks and his nets vary from different distractions to carefully set up counterfeits to the truth.

The distractions can be our life styles, sports, our houses, or anything that keeps us from focusing on living the truth.

It can be our jobs or the pleasures of this age.

Today these distractions can include television and the filth that is in its programs, or politics, or all of the conspiracy junk that is happening as man attempts to set up his own world government.

The distractions are seemingly without end.

And the counterfeit religions that he has set up are seemingly without end as well.

It is incredible how many different false beliefs that he has in place.

He has a lie in place to snare everyone that will match their comfort zone if they drift from their Creator’s protection.

His fishing nets are real and we should fear being out of our Creator’s will and subject to satan’s sifting.

The other day I posted a video explaining how the water that we are baptized in is a symbol of being baptized in Yehshua’s blood.

It is amazing how satan has perverted the reason that Yehshua shed his blood by instituting so many different false doctrines of salvation.

He shed His blood so that we could begin on a clean slate and have His Father’s Torah written in our inward parts.

But most have chosen to believe one of satan’s most successful false doctrines instead.

They have chosen to believe that they are saved by grace and grace alone so that no man can boast.

People believe this lie hook, line and sinker instead of simply believing what their Messiah taught.

This false doctrine defies the very reason that we were created.

We were created to be made in His image and He instructs us how He purposed to accomplish this.

Isaiah records that His word will accomplish that which He sent it forth to accomplish and so far it has, His temple has been built with it.

And it will accomplish building the later harvest as well.

Yehshua was asked point blank what man must do to have eternal life.

Matt 19:16-17

16 And, behold, one came and said unto Him, Good Master, what good things shall I do so that I may have eternal life?

17 And He said to him, why do you call me good? There is none good but one and that is YEHWEH: but if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments.

This sounds pretty simple and straight forward.

Yehshua never mentioned saved by grace once. He never even touched on the concept.

Do you think that you should ask yourself why not?

Why did He say that He did not come to get rid of one punctuation mark from within His Father’s Torah?

But man wants to believe Saul’s lie that we are saved by grace alone, through a make believe faith instead.

Why? Because there is no fear and Saul’s teachings are just more palatable to their taste buds.

Yehshua taught that only those who believe into Him will be saved.

Believing into Him is believing into who He was.

He was His Father’s logos in the flesh. The name that He was given was the logos of Elohiym.

He said that following Him was the only way and He lived by His Father’s every word.

Following a make believe version of Him is not following Him and confessing a make believe image of Him is confessing a lie.

Of course keeping the commandments just on a physical plain is not going to get you there either, they have to be a desire and a way of life.

Living the word must be accomplished with righteous judgment, brokenness of heart and true faith.

Living it must be kept in spirit and truth.

Yehshua was making the point to this man that the commandments are the path that leads to eternal life.

He told His disciples that He would make them fishers of men.

What were the instructions that He gave them to fish with?

Matt 28:18-20

18 And Yehshua came and spoke to them, saying, all authority is given to me in heaven and in earth.

19 Go therefore INSTRUCT ALL NATIONS, baptizing them “INTO” the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit:

20 TEACHING THEM TO GUARD OR TO HOLD FAST TO ALL THINGS WHATSOEVER HAVE BEEN COMMANDED OR CHARGED TO YOU: and behold, I am with you always, even until the completion of this age.

Examine these instructions; are these types of disciples in the world today?

No, people are following and becoming satan’s disciples and they are following his instructions for fishing instead.

Yehshua told them to go baptize them into His name and into His Father’s name and into His Father’s Spirit.

I explained this in more detail in the “baptized in the blood” video.

Baptizing them into their name is baptizing them into their very character or into their logos.

His spirit teaches us their character but receiving His Spirit is conditional on genuine repentance which is leaving our ways for His Kingdom’s sake.

Yehshua was at one with His Father just as we are told to become at one with them.

Repentance is agreeing to live to be in total agreement with them in our thoughts so that our thoughts would become at one with them.

The second part of the fishing instructions given here in Matthew 28 is to teach them to live by every word that was instructed to them.

Has there been such fishing as this going on in the world today?

I have not witnessed it. I cannot even find it.

Instead I have witnessed a whole host of blasphemes that lead you to everything but living by His every word.

The witness that I have experienced is that men love the darkness rather than the light.

John 3:19

19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

Of course those in Christianity do not call their deeds evil because they cannot see how evil their perversions of the truth are.

They cannot see how not teaching their children to live by His every word is the same things as burning them on an altar.

This is because they have not feared knowing what evil really is. They live in their own self-righteousness.

Those who think that they are religious point their fingers at all of the obvious darkness in the world today but they do not see their own darkness.

I have also witnessed small pockets of Pharisee type sects who strive to keep a form of the commandments on a physical plain.

Many of these are rooted in Judaism who reject their Messiah altogether.

But there are also a growing number of those who call themselves messianic Jews.

They follow the perverted Jewish customs and such and believe in these customs or a form of them.

Many of these follow the false messiah that came out from the lies of Saul of Tarsus, while others of them see that Saul is false but still worship in vain by holding onto satan’s perverted Sabbath and other false doctrines.

But most in Christianity simply reject the Torah altogether.

And they say they know Elohiym. They are liars and hypocrites.

They will come to Yehshua that day and say; Lord, Lord, did we do many wonderful things in your name.

And He will say;

“Depart from me, you workers of lawlessness, I never knew you”

The primary bate that satan is using to lure his fish and to keep His fish in his net is lawlessness.

The biggest tool that he has used to spread this lawlessness came from his saved by grace doctrine.

But he is also keeping others in captivity by getting them to buy into the false religion of Judaism or some form of it.

The wrong Sabbath day is a big one of his perversions that those calling themselves Jewish practice and have led many others to practice as well.

Having the wrong day is still lawlessness, especially with the Sabbaths.

Isaiah prophesied that satan would seek to set on the mountain of YEHWEH’s appointed times and Daniel said that his servants would change time and laws.

This has happened.

It is easy for most to see how simple it is that he is behind the fixed day of Sunday worship.

As they were drawn out of this deception, they fell for the Saturday lie; hook, line and sinker.

As they left the Sunday lie, they blindly were trapped by his back up net.

It might have been their Creator drawing them out of the Sunday lie or just satan’s ploy to entrench them into a different false belief because he purposed to have all escape routes covered.

There was only one escape route that he could not block and this is the truth that sets us free.

But man has rejected the truth, all except the small flock.

The Saturday Sabbath is a clever smoke screen indeed but if they had turned to what their Creator’s word says instead of to what those calling themselves Jews say, they would not have fallen for this back-up deception.

Those in Judaism today are deceived as well, why would anyone listen to them about anything?

How can the deceived be your source of truth?

It is easy to prove that the Sabbath was determined by the New Moon each month during the days that Yehshua walked here in the flesh and before then.

But if you do not fear being wrong, you will not look into the proof that is out there.

Or you will just deny it because you love swimming in satan’s stock pond instead.

The truth might just be too inconvenient for you and if it is, then you will reject it no matter what proof that you are given.

If you do, you will remain with satan’s hook bedded deep into your gills and you will be subject to believe his other lies because you will not have your Creator’s protection.

But if you want to jump out of satan’s net and out of his scum pond, you will need to believe your Creator and act on that belief by living by His every word in spirit and in truth.

His word says plainly that He put the luminaries here to determine when His appointed times are;

Gen 1:14

14 And Elohiym said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, AND FOR APPOINTED TIMES, and to keep track of days and years:

His weekly Sabbaths are His appointed times, the same ones that satan purposed to rule over.

One of satan’s traps was to hide that the Sabbaths are also appointed times.

Leviticus 23 teaches that they are but the mistranslations call them feasts.

In the 1st five verses of Leviticus 23, the word feast is not in the text. The word is appointed times as it is elsewhere in scripture.

The translators conveniently did not call them appointed times when it did not suit their beliefs.

In verse six, the correct word for feast is translated as feast, as it is concerning the other feasts.

But even in verse 37 where it is summing up the appointed times they call it feasts. The summary of the appointed times is not the word for feast, it is His appointed times.

They went to great effort to hide the truth.

It is amazing to see the hypocrisy that the texts are translated with.

Whenever the truth did not agree with their religion, they just translated it differently to hide the truth.

And we read in;

Ps 104:19

19 He appointed the moon for HIS APPOINTED TIMES:

Folks, this is not rocket science.

Satan has several false teachers set up teaching a Saturday Sabbath and there are many of his religious systems that hold fast to this lie but who are you going to continue to listen to?

Your Creator’s word tells us about His calendar.

Time is about up and there is no time to be on the wrong side of this.

The day of coming out of the captivity is at hand.

What opposes the truth will be purged out.

I know of at least two duos in the world today who are claiming that they are the two witnesses who are upholding the Saturday Sabbath.

This shows that having this right will be a big factor in the coming days because disobedience and rebellion to the truth is the mark of the beast.

It is the apostate man that bears the number 666.

If you practice lawlessness, you bear satan’s name and you bear the number of his name.

The Saturday Sabbath is a lie.

Jewish historical records even admit that they changed it.

It is just one of many of the lies that came out of Judaism that many of these other false religious groups are embracing but it is a big one since the Sabbath is a sign that He gave us to identify us as His people.

We have to have it right.

Ex 31:16-17

16 Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.

17 IT IS A SIGN BETWEEN ME AND THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL FOR EVER: because in six days YEHWEH made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day He rested, and was refreshed.

There are also groups that are able to see the truth about when the Sabbaths are that are still captive to some of satan’s other lies.

You must flee from all that is false. No lie is of the truth.

The 1899 Universal Jewish Encyclopedia states on page 410;

“Sabbath and New Moon (Rosh Hodesh), both periodically recurring in the course of the year. The New Moon is still, AND THE SABBATH ORIGINALLY WAS, dependent upon the lunar cycle. Both date back to the nomadic period of Israel.”

Folks, this is straight forward. Our Creator’s word says so and Jewish history admits to it, as well as other secular sources.

There are several other sources to prove this if you want the truth that will set you free from satan’s nets.

The hypocrisy of the Saturday worshippers is incredible because most of them use the New Moons to determine when the other appointed times are.

How can you use it for some of His appointed times and not the others? Does He have two different ways of keeping track of days?

They lie to themselves and they are hypocrites.

And for that matter, why don’t they worship on the New Moon days as we are told to?

The Jewish encyclopedia goes on in the same paragraph to add;

“ORIGINALLY THE NEW MOON WAS CELEBRATED IN THE SAME WAY AS THE SABBATH; gradually it became less important, while the Sabbath became more a day of religion and humanity, of religious meditation and instruction, of peace and delight of the soul, and produced powerful and beneficent effects outside of Judaism.”

Why are the New Moons not being worshipped on today?

They certainly were back then and they will be when Yehshua returns. We read this in;

Isa 66:23

23 And it shall come to pass that FROM ONE NEW MOON TO ANOTHER, and from one Sabbath to another shall all flesh come to worship before me, says YEHWEH.

And why could the world care less about the 7th year Sabbath that we are in as well?

It is because they could care less about any of His instructions that He gave us to mold us with in His image.

They want to pick and choose what to obey and decide for themselves how to live.

Folks, it is past time to turn from the lies that you have bought into.

You have been snared by satan’s nets and you are captive in his cesspool.

Yehshua said; if your light be darkness, then great is your darkness.

You are in captivity to the lies because you rejected your Creator’s protection by refusing to walk with Him in agreement with Him on His narrow path.

Yehshua taught His disciples to bring the truth to the world. The truth is His fishing net.

The truth is the fishing net that sets us free. It is the logos of Elohiym and it is the light.

Satan’s net is everything that is false and it holds you in captivity and your light is darkness if you walk in his lies.

Repent and turn to YEHWEH Elohiym, the self-existing one who Created you to be made in His image and He will deliver you.

The truth will set you free. His word is truth.
