Shalam brothers and sisters, this year RiseIsrael.com has reached the 20th anniversary. To reflect this we updated our landing page, which contains a timeline of how the site began in November of 2003 and the many changes over the years. From experience you should know that we do not like to speak about ourselves. 2nd Corinthians 4:5 “ For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord;….”
In the timeline it explains that heresies were being taught and it was clear that we could no longer listen to these wicked teachings and congregate among these men that had fallen off the truth. See, Exodus 23:2 and Matthew 18:17. However we did not explain what the heresies were on the landing page. So here we go, just like the churches, they removed the laws by teaching that we are only required to keep the things mentioned by Christ. Even after learning for so many years that Christ did not come to destroy the laws (Matthew 5:17), their attempt was very cunning, because they used the letters of Paul to confuse those that are not learned. Ironically the letters of Paul could help see that their doctrine was teaching to commit sin. For example, there are numerous laws that Christ did not explicitly mention that was understood by the Apostles to be sin, like being effeminate. See, 1st Corinthians 6:9.
As they progressed in their lies, they focused on a false charity to teach tolerance of sin and the removal of judgment. While the law of charity states in Leviticus 19:17 “Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke [correct] thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him.” Humorously they tried to call this heresy the “The New Covenant” as if it wasn’t foretold that it is based on the law. See, Jeremiah 31:31-34. The end result of their doctrine, was denying the reason we ended up in captivity. Please read, Deuteronomy 28:15. Thus brothers and sisters were committing blasphemy of the Holy Spirit by breaking the Sabbath and Feast Days, adultery was justified, and any other law was boldly disregarded.
Today we still are warning our people about these wicked elders that are disguised as sheep. Many have a hard time spotting them but their sinful doctrine exposes who these wolves are. Although they profess now to keep the laws, the doctrine continues to be the same, justifying sin; whether it be idolatry, breaking of the Sabbath days, or any form of sin. Jude Verse 4 “For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.” The experience was a wild one that could not be put in a few paragraphs.
Now in present day, we look back at how we went from having wicked heresies taught to us and now realizing that the Most High was guiding us through this 20 year journey. Take a look at the landing page and see the improvements that have been accomplished. One of the greatest things that the Most High has given us, is his mercy and learning to please only him. Galatians 1:10 “For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.” Shalam (Peace)!
