The Du Tillet Matthew: is it the correct one?

The previous study, where I first brought up about the du Tillet Hebrew Matthew/Mattityahu, included information that looked at the possibility of our present Gospel of Matthew being from a scroll written with errors in it. See link to previous study below:

Matthew 1: The answer to the question is 42 not 41!

I did a search on the du Tillet and found a couple of sites that had researched and presented their information on that manuscript, links will be included below. One site also had available in pdf an old book written and published about the du Tillet including translation in English called, “An Old Hebrew Text of St. Matthew’s Gospel” by Hugh Schonfield 1927. Link and quote from the book are below.

http://www.torahresource.com/DuTillet/Schonfield.pdf

“When we turn to the New Testament we find that there are reasons for suspecting a Hebrew or Aramaic original for the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and John, and for the Apocalypse.”, from Preface page vii. On the next page, Schonfield goes into information that states he believes the canonical Gospel to be an abridged edition of a larger original work with even more information then we have today of CHRIST and HIS saying and of which only fragments have survived. He further states that he believes the Judaean Christians were going to use it as the last book of the Old Testament canon. It has been referred to by the names “The Gospel”, “The Gospel of the Lord”, “The Gospel of the Twelve, or, of the Apostles”, “The Gospel of the Hebrews”, and “The Hebrew Matthew”. He believed the original to be in Hebrew and possibly Aramaic and that the Greek renderings were from it and could be proven as such. When I was in Israel I met a scholar who stated that he believed the Greek to be secondary to the Aramaic. I found out there is an Aramaic vs Greek primacy dispute between Eastern and Western scholars in regards to the original New Testament manuscripts.

In “Caesar and Christ” by Will Durant, on page 616 is this paragraph which backs up what Schonfield said above:

“The literature of Christianity in the second century abounded in gospels epistles, apocalypses, and “acts.” Christians differed widely in accepting or rejecting these as authoritative expressions of the Christian creed. The Western churches accepted the Book of Revelation, the Eastern churches generally rejected it; these accepted the Gospel according to the Hebrews and the Epistles of James, the Western churches discarded them. Clement of Alexandria quotes as sacred scripture a late first-century treatise, The Teaching of the Twelve Apostles. Marcion’s publication of a New Testament forced the hand of the Church. We do not know when the books of our present New Testament were determined as canonical-i.e., as authentic and inspired;; we can only say that a Latin fragment discovered by Muratori in 1740, named after him, and generally assigned to ca.180, assumes that the canon had by that time been fixed.”

On page 556 Durant says, “Orthodox tradition placed Matthew’s Gospel first. Irenaeus describes it as originally composed in “Hebrew”-i.e., Aramaic; but it has come down to us only in Greek.” This agrees with what is stated in the preface of the “Holy Bible: Ancient Eastern Text” by George Lamsa:

With reference to….the originality of the Peshitta text, as the Patriarch and Head of the Holy Apostolic and Catholic Church of the East, we wish to state, that the Church of the East received the scriptures from the hands of the blessed Apostles themselves in the Aramaic original, the language spoken by our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and that the Peshitta is the text of the Church of the East which has come down from the Biblical times without any change or revision.”

Unclean spirits are real today, too…

JF, was obese and had numerous cats to the point of horrible uncleanness. Both are signs of a hold of spiritual wickedness. GOD/ELOHIM [Hebrew word for GOD] allowed me to be at the hospital when she was getting an x-ray and I got to see it on the machine and get a copy of it later. I saw three demons in her chest x-ray: a pointed eared elf like face with a large fancy necklace with gems was over her heart/left breast [She recognized the description and said her mother battled it. Her mother taught her how to contact spirits.], a tiny face biting on her where her pain was, and a boar with a long snout in her stomach. I believe from Biblical research that unclean spirits are a type of water vapor that inhabits the voids of our bodies because of sin. More on this in another study. Continue reading

Obelisks as monuments [matzevot] – the curses of Egypt are upon us!

From the links below, it looks like matzevot are used as monuments and an obelisk is one form it can take. Considering the numerous verses where ELOHIM is clear that anything pagan separates HIM from HIS people and HE commanded to be the only ONE worshiped by them, it is sad that many today [Christians and Jews] do not realize what they are embracing since the obelisk was specifically for a pagan deity, the sun god.

Do many translations of YHWH’S [the LORD’S] Prayer from Matthew 6 mock GOD [ELOHIM]?

Below is YHWH’S [the LORD’S] Prayer from a translation of the Bible from the Aramaic Peshitta text. Aramaic is a sister language to the Hebrew and it is the language YAHSHUA [JESUS/JOSHUA/IMMANUEL] spoke while HE lived here on Earth in the Flesh. Reading this translation has been an interesting study because when comparing it to other translations of the Bible, patterns are revealed of hiding pagan ways, hiding demonic possession, and mocking ELOHIM which other translations, because of their word choices, hide.

Search for YHWH [the LORD] with all your heart!!!

There is so much information in Scripture that people are not listening to or understanding and some do not want to understand because there would be big changes that would have to be made in their lives. Many Churches are not teaching the Narrow Way or they have the wide way mixed in with the Narrow and are not doing the work they need to do to be completely Set-Apart to ELOHIM’S Way. The fact that FATHER/SON/SPIRIT can only be worshiped in Truth and that what is required of those in Covenant is complete obedience to ELOHIM’S Way, is abundantly clear throughout both the Old and New Testaments [Covenants].

ELOHIM [Hebrew word for GOD] has been through so much because of people being deceived. People give in to their weaknesses. They end up wanting what is of the enemy and do not want ELOHIM only. They end up being used by the enemy because they do not know or understand the Truth. This breaks my heart because FATHER/SON/SPIRIT deserve our complete obedience out of love for THEM not just because of THEM being ELOHIM. What many do not realize is that one day we will have no choice but to only worship and live the Way of ELOHIM, in the Set-Apart [Holy] City forever! HalleluYAH!!! Continue reading

Is your belief in the MESSIAH [CHRIST] allowing HIS miracles or causing HIM to groan?

When reading Yochanan [John] 11, I was surprised by something I feel is big. There is truth in Scripture right in front of our eyes but sometimes we can read verses over and over and not see what is in front of us very plainly. It may be because we are blind to it [hopefully just temporarily] or sometimes we get deeper revelations as we grow closer to ELOHIM [Hebrew word for GOD and who I believe is FATHER/SON/HOLY SPIRIT]. The following verses all talk about not seeing with our eyes and not hearing with our ears: Yesha’yahu [Isaiah] 6:8-11, [these next repeat much of what is in Yesha’yahu] Mattityahu [Matthew] 13:13-17 and Yochanan 12:39-41. Take a look at the verses below and my commentary added in bold letters within brackets to see what I see. Continue reading

You’re right, there is no Christ in Christmas but there is some new information…

9/9/13 – I have some new information to post and it should make some people very happy. Our ELOHIM covers us greatly. While I still believe in what is written in the study below and feel it necessary to warn people of pagan practices, I now am believing that the MESSIAH’S date of conception [which is a birth of a new life] fell on the pagan celebration of a sun god’s son’s birth [which many celebrate today as Christmas] and the MESSIAH’S date of Birth as a newborn was on the Set-Apart Feast of Trumpets which heralds a KING. Based on this information, I believe celebrating 12/25 as HIS birth, without any pagan way involved at all, and instead doing the service work the SON commands may be acceptable in ELOHIM’S Eyes. This is my opinion and what I say to everyone is to still pray and ask our FATHER in Heaven for the Truth so they won’t be punished for celebrating any lie. I personally have no interest in misleading people or in anything but the COMPLETE TRUTH! I hopefully hold no pride if it came down to posting a complete retraction of anything I wrote that was proved to not be the Truth! Btw, ELOHIM is the Hebrew word for the English word GOD and to me is FATHER/SON/HOLY SPIRIT. Please see this link for more information concerning the new information stated above: http://glclifestyling.com/2013/12/the-return-of-the-true-king-and-his-priceless-gift-of-270-days/ Continue reading

Handling halloween wisely – J. John Canon

This is a well written piece by a minister from the United Kingdom named J. John [Canon].  He is an excellent and thought provoking speaker. He does have a website and while I haven’t looked over most of it, I felt this piece below was appropriate to pass on considering halloween is coming up. I used to celebrate halloween, in fact, it was my favorite holiday, I loved it!  After reading what J. John wrote about how it dishonored ELOHIM [Hebrew word for GOD and who I believe is FATHER/SON/SPIRIT] and the further investigating I did on its roots, I decided to throw out all my halloween decorations and not celebrate it anymore because I wanted to show ELOHIM I loved HIM more than HIS enemy: death and darkness and evil and wickedness [witchcraft] and deceit and uncleanness and pagan ways, all of which halloween celebrates. There is nothing of Life, Light, Goodness, Truth, Cleanness, and ELOHIM’S Way involved at all in that celebration! Continue reading

The truth about “holy laughter” is not the SET-APART [HOLY] SPIRIT but a kundalini deceiving demon

There is much going on in Churches that many believe is the SET-APART [HOLY] SPIRIT but it is not. Instead of the HOLY SPIRIT, people are allowing demons to use their bodies. What is shown in the video [link at bottom of page] about the holy laughter/kundalini spirit is some of what I experienced in workshops that taught new age mysticism but used the words “God/Jesus/angels” so people felt safe. However, the people who taught these workshops did not believe in the Bible as the Word of ELOHIM [Hebrew word for GOD and who I believe is FATHER/SON/SPIRIT] so their “God/Jesus/angels” were different. Christians/Believers in the MESSIAH [CHRIST] were participating in these workshops and being deceived along with everyone else. Continue reading

The WHOLE TRUTH and nothing but the TRUTH…

I am going to start talking about my story and get into more intense topics.  I have told many of you that I met that I had a lot happen to me in a short period of time and that Elohim (Hebrew for God) made it really clear to me that HE and HIS word (the Bible) was the truth and that almost everything I had been believing in previously was a lie.  I was convinced I knew the truth just as many people want to believe they know the truth.  Considering how many beliefs there are out there including differing beliefs in Christianity, I hope that everyone can admit that there is untruth as well as truth in us all.  After what happened to me, I ONLY want the truth in my life and I hope and pray for everyone to only want the truth in their lives.
