Gays Win!

This week in May, 2015, Ireland became the first nation in the world to approve gay marriage by popular vote.   When the gay movement took steam a few decades back, this result was entirely predictable.  Myths tend to become fact given enough time.

Myth?  What myth would that be?  The myth that homosexuality is "okay"!  Of course I realize the world will approve gay marriage.  I know that.  Pandora's box is open.  Indeed the "world" does a lot of things which are not "okay" but simply condones it.   Much of what the world does, right or wrong, it does only because it has been embraced over time.

Face it.  Humans were the same in, say, 1950 as they are today.  Nothing has changed.  In 1950, homosexuality existed yet it was understood that it was an aberration and was condemned.   Homosexuality existed in Biblical times too, and was also condemned.   (The condemnation came from YHWH (God) Himself!) Yet now, in this decade, homosexuality is touted as "normal" and even a "right".  A "right"!  A couple of generations have now grown up constantly hearing this.  And that is precisely what changed.  It's absolutely true that when you hear something often enough, whether true or not, it becomes "fact".  Case in point:

Just before the 2012 presidential election, Barack Obama changed his view of homosexuality based on the current "political wind" (i.e., he needed votes),  and announced his support of gay-marriage.  He said in an interview:  
"You know, Malia and Sasha, they have friends whose parents are same-sex couples. There have been times where Michelle and I have been sitting around the dinner table and we're talking about their friends and their parents and Malia and Sasha, it wouldn't dawn on them that somehow their friends' parents would be treated differently.  It doesn't make sense to them and, frankly, that's the kind of thing that prompts a change in perspective."
Do you see it?  It would not dawn on Malia and Sasha that somehow their friends' [gay] parents would be treated differently!  Why would it not dawn on them?  Because  Malia and Sasha grew up hearing it constantly that being gay is not different!  For 6000 years is was different, and now all the sudden it's not (Isaiah 5:20).  No wonder they don't see a problem with homosexuality!  When we, as a society, fail to teach expected human behavior by YHWH's rules, with YHWH as the authority, and instead man's rules and desires become the measure of authority, then the world descends into what we see today.  And it happened in our age! 

It wouldn't dawn on Malia and Sasha because you, Mr. President, instead of teaching Malia and Sasha the truth that GOD calls homosexuality an abonmination, decides instead that it "prompts a change in perspective."  And, Malia and Sasha did not learn the truth in school either, because in the United States, "God" has not been permitted in school since 1962! 

Now I am not "homophobic".  I'm not.  I feel bad for those who think sexual relations between same-sex partners could ever be "okay".  You see, no one who is immoral and unclean in the eyes of God can be in His presence.  No one. (Leviticus 22:3; Numbers 19:20; 2 Chronicles 23:19; Isaiah 35:8; 1 Corinthians 6:17; Revelation 21:17 just to name a few).  Even heterosexuals who embrace adultery, also forbidden by God, cannot be in His presence!  So it does not matter if the entire world approves of homosexuality and the entire world makes gay marriage legal.  It doesn't matter what "the Church" says as they race to embrace homosexuality, nor any Supreme Court of any land.  Homosexuals and heterosexuals alike can do as they wish to hide behind what they want to do and demand it be accepted as "normal" and expect YHWH to "love me just the way I am".  In the end, they are worm fodder because YHWH does not "love you just the way you are"!  He loves you enough to realize you are lost and in need of HIM.  After that, He expects you to follow HIS Divine Instructions! You are supposed to love YHWH enough to be set apart for HIM! (Deuteronomy 7:6).

Well, the world is free to embrace man's rules and man's laws all they wish.  But as for me and my household, we will serve YHWH!" (Joshua 24:15).

So no, I am not "homophobic"!  I am YAHphoric!

  2. This world is going down the drain. Some people think think that their thoughts are higher than YHWH that leads them to think that they can do whatever they want even twisting the own commandments of YHWH without fear. Guess what, Y'shua is coming back soon and all of us will stand before Him with no hidden secrets. I hope that it'll no be too late for all of us.
    Shalom.

  4. Yes, this trips up a lot of people. You are correct that the letters "YHWH" or "YHVH" simply represent the Hebrew letters "Yod Hey Vav Hey". "YHWH" is preferred because it represents the closest to the phonetic pronunciation "Yahweh". Most scholars agree that the ancient pronunciation of the letter vav was more like a “W” and less like the “V”. The vav currently represents a "V" sound in the Modern Hebrew language.

    But, "Yahweh" is only close. The pronunciation of YHWH is less like the word "Yahweh" as is would be pronounced as the English letters indicate, and more like the sound of the wind: "Yah-whey" or "Yah-wheh", where one exhales when sounding the "whey/wheh" portion.

    Hope this helps!

  5. W comes from u and u that makes it double u

    Yod in the Name

    A stream cannot rise higher than its source.

    For thousands of years, ancient Hebrew was only written with consonants, no vowels. When reading these texts, they had to supply all of the vowels from memory,based on oral tradition.

    Vowels can make a big difference in various languages, the change of a single vowel can radically change the meaning of a word. 

    We can't translate Hebrew diectly to English because English is als pagan language. In an attempt to solidfy Hebrew to be understood in other languages the "translations" started having effect on the “correct” readings in Hebrew Scriptures.

    Adding vowels altered and changed the original meanings. Today the world is confused about what the truth is. With Internet available to all many websites had been published and everyone has their own added version and way of believe or "want" to believe.

    Ancient Jews successfully preserved the Scripturuaral vowels through oral tradition  alone  for thousands of years.

    The Hebrew text itself remained in context until the translations came into question. Whatever translation  we read we know the chance to be mislead are highly possible.

    No vowel altered Scripture are to believe to be concrete trustworthy.  Interpretation and transliterated Sciptures are inconsequential and there are differences between the texts.

    Dots and dashes (called nikkudot, nikkud in the singular) were created during the time the codex.

     For example the vowel sound 'o' is represented by a dot placed over a letter.

    The English word "no" is in Hebrew  "lo". In this case the dot above the text, called a hholam, represents the vowel sound 'o'. לֹא

    The letter shin(ש) represents two different sounds, a "sh" and an "s".

    To differentiate between these two sounds, a dot is placed above the shin in different locations. For the "sh" sound, the dot is placed on the right (שׁ) and is called a shin and for the "s" sound it is placed on the left (שׂ) and called a sin.

    The name Yeshua means has the meaning Salvation.

    Yod represents the "Y" sound in Hebrew.

    The yod is the smallest letter of the alphabet, which is why Yeshua used it in His famous saying in Matt 5:18: "Until heaven and earth pass away not one "yod" or one kots will pass from the Torah. Although a J is not in hebrew text the "Y" will sound like "Ye" or "Yu" or "Ya"

    The name of Yeshua starts with a "Yod". The second syllable of His Name is the "sh" sound. It is represented by the Hebrew letter shin.

    Word: יֵשׁ
    yesh: being, substance, existence, is

    shua: a cry for help
    Yeh=part of the phrase Ehyeh asher Ehyeh; meaning "Was, Am, Will Be" signifying "existence"

    "YA-SHU-AH" which means "GOD SAVES" or "SALVATION". Encoded within the name "YESUAH" is hidden 3 of the 4 mystical Letters for God's name = YHVH or YOD-HEI-VAV-HEI (in Hebrew).

    The word ישה (yasha) is a simple verb meaning "to deliver." When the letters י, ו and מ are added to the verb a more complex verb is formed and more specifically a hiphil participle verb.
