We have studied the Scriptures independently for over 20 years, including the writings in the original languages of Hebrew and Greek.
The True Sabbath
When we read the Fourth Commandment, it states that the 7th day is the Sabbath. If we look at a calendar, we see that the 7th day is Saturday. Now of course the Hebrew people didn't call it Saturday because that is a name of a Pagan god, the 7th day was called Shabbat in Hebrew. One important point to make here is that the Catholics call this the Third commandment because they omitted the Second Commandment which prohibits one from bowing down to Idols. Which of course most Catholics do.
During the time of the Messiah Yehowshuwa, (true name of the Messiah) the day of rest was the 7th day. At first the true followers of Yehowah and his son Yehowshuwa, were keeping the 7th day Sabbath. But as they were killed off and died, and time had passed, the 'day of rest' got changed to Sunday. The day the Roman Pagans worshiped the Sun. Sol Invictus, the invincible sun.
Constantine was said to be the high priest for the Sol Invictus, which was carried on from Babylon, which was carried on from Egypt.
(Constantine was said to have conquered in the sign of the Cross, or the Chi Rho the monogram of Christos. This picture above shows the the Catholic Church is the continuation of Constantine).
In 321 AD Constantine, enacted the Sunday law, enforcing that the ' Day of the Sun' should be a rest day. This brought all the sun worshipers into the Church, with their money. And the Catholic Church continued this observance. The Catholic Church is the mother of all the Christian Churches. This is the reason most Protestant churches also keep Sunday. Because they come from the 'mother church'. The Fourth Commandment states:
Exodus 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:10 But the seventh day the sabbath of YEHOWAH thy God: thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that within thy gates: 11 For six days YEHOWAH made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them , and rested the seventh day: wherefore YEHOWAH blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
I have inserted the name of the Almighty that was written in the original Hebrew Script that has been replaced by the word LORD in most bibles. And by reading the above commandment, it clearly states who is the Creator
To read about the true bible names and the incorrect use of the title 'Christ' instead of Messias, see the following http://www.hubpages.com/hub/biblenames
IHS and the Cross are symbols of the Sun
One of the requirements in sun worship is a need for three gods, father, mother and child. The child becomes the reincarnation of the father. Nimrod, Tammuz and Semiramis was one of the oldest trinity, the three-in-one Sungod. And we know that the bible states that the earlier Jews were worshiping Tammuz.
Ezekiel 8:14 Then he brought me to the door of the gate of Yehowah's house which toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.
This tradition is still alive today in the Christian Churches, starting with the Catholic Church. They have continued this form of sun worship. Constantine was the emperor who enforced the Trinity in 325 AD.
All the people that would not conform, were scattered or killed.
Constantine himself was the high priest of sun worship, Sol Invictus. He continued this religion and called it Christianity. The Catholic Church uses these signs, symbols and rituals that come from sun worship. For example, IHS, which most people believe stands for the monogram of Jesus, or the Greek Iesous it is also said to stand for Isis, Horus, and Seth (the Egyptian Trinity). IHS also means 'In Hoc Signo', which means in this sign, the Cross, they will conquer. But mainly it is the letters used by the Jesuits as their symbol in a sun blaze, and for them it means Iesum Habemus Socium "We have Jesus as companion"
So in keeping with the traditions of sun worship, they have changed the true sabbath, the 7th day, to the 1st day Sunday, the day of the sun. And incorporated the trinity concept.
To read about ichthus and Dagon and the fish symbol. See Dagon the Fish God
The Cross Symbol
Now we would like to look at the most popular symbol used in Christianity, the Cross.
Many people don't know that the word Cross and the word Crucify are not really biblical, but that they are of Latin origin. The words should read, a post or pole, or stake, in the place of Cross The word used for Cross in the bible is originally the Greek word Stauros meaning post or pole, or stake. When the Catholic Church commissioned Jerome to translate the bible in Latin, they subtly mistranslated the word Stauros to Crucem, which KJV translated it to Cross in the English Version. Even though the King James version was to be translated from the Greek scripts of the New Testament, they incorporated the Latin Sun Worship Symbol 'The Cross'. Which of course Constantine was high priest of, and passed it over to the Catholic Church.
Therefore the Messiah was executed on a pole, or post,or stake, and not a Cross. And when they said crucify him, the original Greek scripts word is Stauroo, which means impale. So they said impale him. They impaled him on a stake. A very cruel way of torture, ( This is how Vlad, the Impaler executed his victims. Also known as Dracula, son of the Dragon. Which Prince Charles says he is related to.) Vlad the Impaler was also a defender of Christianity and the Cross. And Prince Charles, who is the Prince of Wales, whose flag is a Red Dragon!
So why the use of the Cross, could it be that this stands for a mark! (The mark of the beast?)
When people don't know how to read or write, they have them put their mark or X in place of their signature. When you place a mark on a map, you put a X on it. And is it a coincidence that the cross is used in so many instances of sun worship, by so many different people around the world?
The pope is the high priest of sun worship, and one can see many Crosses used by the church. And many Catholics make the sign of the cross on themselves, and the priest make this sign on the peoples foreheads. There are many different crosses. The triple cross. (the Double Cross). the Latin cross, the Greek cross, the Coptic cross etc.
The cross on it's side is an X. If one were to look in the book 'The complete encyclopedia of Signs & Symbols', there you would find many examples of the use of the cross as a pagan sun symbol.
On Ash Wednesday many churches hold a service in which each person is marked on the forehead with the sign of a cross in ashes. I am inclined to believe that this is the mark mentioned in Revelation 17:13. Here are a couple pictures of a mark on the forehead.
The SDA (Seventh Day Adventist) say the mark of the beast is Sunday, saying that the Catholic Church claims that changing the sabbath to Sunday is their mark of authority, showing that they have the power to change laws and precepts.
I am inclined to think that the 'mark of the beast' is the cross, and that is why they use it. They have changed the title Messiah to the title Christ because the Ch in Greek =X the cross on it's side.
But one thing to understand is, that all Christian churches are worshiping a false God because they worship Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the wrong name. The true name is Yehowshuwa and he was the Messiah, not the Christ.
Next we will be dealing with the 666 symbol.

To Steve Staniek
All Christians, Constantine Christians,and Jesus Christians etc. are the same. They worship the same false god Jesus Christ.
Steve Staniek on December 05, 2019:
Constantine's bible is a work of Roman fiction, Constantine arranged and maintained editorial control] in order to support Roman terrorism [colonialism}. Historic records and rock carvings are reliable records describing how the Annunaki colonists brought spiritual slavery to Earth. They were a slaving civilization, and they wore the cross of spiritual domination on their chests [see rock carvings from the period]. They controlled their slaves thru biological transducers known as the pineal gland. They control our thoughts, feelings, and actions and influence us to harm ourselves and others for our negative energy, which is their food. Their cross was adopted by the colonial terrorist Constantine. Christian violence destroyed its competitors around the world and Christianity became the biggest single criminal organization to curse planet Earth for thousands of years of colonial Christian genocide. Christianity now controls the thinking and actions of Christian slaves, Jesus slaves in fact that obey fake gods and fake commandments that are impossible to keep, so you can never get out of your false karmic debt.
All Christians are Constantine Christians, not Jesus Christians.

The Book of Jasher is mentioned in the Bible, but the Books of Jasher that we find today are said not to be the same as the Book of Jasher mentioned in the Bible.
Rebecca on June 05, 2018:
Thank you! I was really stuck on Genesis one and two. I really, really appreciate your insight and wisdom! I want to follow it more closely myself, as I picked up a book that helps me to understand Hebrew, and I think I saw where you used the Biblia Hebraica? Also, I am reading the Book of Jasher. Is this also another one that has been taken out?
And I want to just share that I post your articles as much as possible, most of it falls on deaf ears but I am hoping someone discerns this truth with their whole heart! Some, by the way, have become so overjoyed with the new knowledge they want more! So, again, thank you! I found your link on a YouTube thread, btw. :-)

Satan's plan is to deceive all.
Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
There is no need for confusion, Gen 1 is the order of creation, and Gen 2 is simply the continuation of Gen 1 and a narrative with more details of creation and where we are given his name Yehowah who is the Creator.
Changes have been made such as the removal of the book of Enoch. Mat 23 shows that the scribes have altered the Scriptures
Mat 23:13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in , neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.
Rebecca on May 26, 2018:
I have been confused about the two creations of Genesis 1 and 2. If the name "Lord" has been used in place of Yehowah, is Genesis 2 the real creation? I know the bible has been very manipulated so I am wondering with the name changes, did the evil one just stop there or did he add and subtract entire writings?

Yehowshuwa (Joshua) 24:14 Now therefore fear YEHOWAH, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye YEHOWAH. 15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve YEHOWAH, choose you this day whom ye will serve ; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell : but as for me and my house, we will serve YEHOWAH.

Your wrong about the word Amen and why christians use it. When the day of judgement comes and you stand before God and have to0 explain to him why you are misleading people I hope you have a good explaination for him
ro-jo-yo (author) on January 10, 2014:
Your first statement makes no sense, any person can call upon Yehowah in the language they speak.
The English translation is not fine . "The problem lies when someone adds or takes away from doctrine, or distorts the context. " as you say, and that is exactly what they have done, in a few places. Like the changing of the names.
The most important one being the name of the Almighty Yehowah which they have changed to the word LORD, and the name of the Messiah Yehowshuwa which they have changed to the false name Christ Jesus.
No other name than Yehowshuwa means 'the call to salvation from Yehowah', no matter what language.
And if you pass yourself off as any other name, that would be fraud. If your name is Joe then it is Joe not George.
Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other NAME under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
It is vital to have the correct name.
The talk about the cross and stake is very relevant, as the cross is the mark of the Beast, the Greek word used in the bible is stake, not a cross.
To assume something could be in error is not retarded contrary to what you say
2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
JoeM on January 09, 2014:
We are not commanded to call upon GOD in any particular language. Therefore, the translation in English is fine. The problem lies when someone adds or takes away from doctrine, or distorts the context. Such as what the denominations have done. There is ZERO denomination in the Holy Bible. We can call Yeshua by the name Jesus because it means the same thing when translated from Hebrew to Greek to English. The intent is the same. We are not worshiping a name. Just because someone calls me George instead of Joe, that doesn't mean they are creating a deception. Also, the talk about Cross and Stake are irrelevant as well. The context is what is important for the OVERALL DOCTRINE. To assume a Bible is in error because its in English is retarded. I would be more worried about modern translations that change doctrine to suit denominations.

Maxei on September 02, 2012:
Please correct your information. The gospels clearly indicate that Jesus Christ was crucified: Don't you read the gospel?: "and [Jesus] said to Thomas, “Put your finger here and look at my hands! Put your hand into my side. Stop doubting and have faith!” John 20:27. So, the cross was the instrument of torture, but is nothing for true christians, because the sacrifice of Jesus Christ is the important matter. Now, catholics have made of the cross an idol, for their own condemnation.
thebadbagger on September 01, 2012:
People who wear a cross are people who practice idolatry. YHWH gave us a commandment on this in Exodus 20:4-5 You must not make for yourself a carved image or a form like anything that is in the heavens above or that is on the earth underneath or that is in the waters under the earth. You must not bow down to them nor be induced to serve them because I YHWH your God am a God exacting exclusive devotion, bringing punishment for the error of fathers upon sons, upon the third generation and upon the fourth generation in the case of those who hate me. It does not get any more clear than that.

The sun and the stars were all created by our Father Yehowah. The true name of the messiah is Yehowshuwa. He, Yehowshuwa, was sent to bring us all back to his Father Yehowah.
To worship the sun as god or to worship Jesus as god is worshiping a false god. It is Satan the Devil who is out to deceive the whole world.
kevin on June 21, 2012:
God is the Sun. Jesus doesn't exist as a deity, [Jesus means Saviour] Google search it. It's Jupiter instead of Jesus and it means "Jupiter our saviour" and Saturn is Satan. Have a real good look at a satellite image of the Vatican. If you don't see anything then you haven't finished looking.
khan karu on March 13, 2012:
The bible is an astrology based text. The council of nicea determined they would take these elements and turn them into allegorical stories based on very ancient myths. Every story in the bible comes from a previous myth. We are all Jesus if we stand up to the crooked administration. Persecution happens to those seen as rebels. As far as this being a real guy, its highly unlikely. It's just a hero story of the ancients favorite hero "the sun". As he travels with his 12 apostles ( sun & 12 zodiacs). So Jesus is a personification of the sun, just as when people use the term mother nature, mother earth or father time. This is also why u go pray to the sun on SUNday eventhough the sabbath is on saturday. Don't be a slave to these religions because they are all one in the same. Doesn't matter who you worship its either sun or idol worship. The truth is that god is not a man so stop giving all these human characteristics. It is spiritual energy that lives within. This is why the term "Know thyself" is so important. You are your own salvation. Deal with yourself and the divine within you before you can pray to some made up deity.

Gareth West on January 17, 2012:
Don't forget the most important factor ro-jo and others. The cross is related purely to the sun. Sun rises in the east set in the west. Then each in the winter period the sun moves downwards in the sky and upwards in the summer period creating the cross in the sky. Also is how christians mark them selfs with the seal of the father, son and the holy ghost. Ever wonder why the cross you mark on your selfs resembles more of a up side down cross? One other fact is the winter solistice. On december the 21st the sun is at its lowest point in the sky. Guess what? On the third day is moves up one degree giving the sign of a resurrection of the sun.
Everyone is entitled to there own views and opinions is what God has giving us free will to think and act for our selfs but face the judgement if we get it wrong. I'm not trying to destroy faith in God and trying to awaken the sleepers to the truth about control. Control the keys to the gates of heaven, you control the majority on earth and christianity is just that.
Blessings on October 28, 2011:
Somebody should tell me today the likelihood of one God telling us different things to believe in.If the answer is that one God can not tell us different things to believe in, then alot of denominations are in error and blindly lead their flocks.Hence they will go by the blind leader blind follower declaration from Christ himself.Watch out if your beliefs are in line with the word of God.

I voted this article up because you present a compelling argument (especially pertaining to sun worship). Unfortunately, I cannot get behind your assertion that the cross is truly the mark of the beast. I can't debate you on the matter, but I have not seen enough evidence to convince me otherwise. Feel free to check out my hub about Christianity and Sun Worship if you are so inclined.

Hi there i see your concept on the mark of the beast. but if you say the mark of the beast is the cross so what is the mark of GOD and i see your pictures: mark on forehead but what about the hand.
Julia on November 19, 2010:
So interesting and great to see people thinking for themseleves.All civilizations have worshipped the sun and the stars for as long as we have been able to make markings on stones , there is evidence of this.Perhaps with the reatively new discovery of the continent Ur ( lost during the last ice age) we will see more evidence emerging of this.Christianity is a current religion.In the future there will be many more.No matter how much evidence is unearthed we can only know what is taught to us as children by our peers.It is up to us as adults to seek out knowedge of our world's history for ourseleves.We are all human , what makes one human's story right and another's wrong?

Daniel J. Neumann from Harrisburg, Pa on September 13, 2010:
I voted up this article, because I admire the passion and skill you’ve demonstrated in this argument. I have to disagree with your hypothesis that the mark of the beast is the cross. I don’t see enough evidence to make that conclusion (#1) and (#2, with almost as much weight) I’ve my own guesses as to what the mark of the beast may be. I think it’ll be digital currency and national identification cards amalgamated—a sort of social security-credit card. It’ll be the only choice if the world economy hyper-inflates, unless you want to wheel around 100 dollar bills for a loaf of bread. Obviously, a credit card (or maybe a blue-tooth chip in your wrist) is more convenient in that situation. That’s only a conjecture (and if you want to read more, I recommend, “From Paper to Digits”).
I do believe that God is light, however. What’s more appropriate, then, as a symbol for the Greatest Conceivable Being, the Holy Singularity, the All-in-One?
But you make an excellent case. Keep up the great work :)
Thanks for sharing,

There is a lot of blind people.The word of the cross is nonsense to those who are being destroyed,but it is God power to us who are being saved.
RockyB on February 12, 2010:
Actually the trinity concept started with the Didache fragments. A collection of 5 transcripts dating somewhere between 80-160AD. Mark 28:19 was later revised into a version incorporating the trinity concept instructing desciples to baptise worshippers in the name of the father, the son, and the holy spirit. It was one of these edited versions that appeared before the Council of Nicea. Eusebius (331-420AD), who led the council as a highly knowlegeable authority on the scriptures, whom sat on Emperor Constantine's right, and delivered the opening address, cried foul on this one. He denounced the entry and citing several older source documents he knew well. In the Vatican version he penned, it went back to the instruction as he knew it, to go out and make disciples of all nations "in my (Jesus') name."
Agreed, the symbol of the cross is very ancient dating milliniums before Christianity. In Egypt one form was the Ankh, in Tummaz worship in the form of the Tau (which also happens to be the name of the last letter in the Hebrew alphabet-Coincidence?), there is a connection with the cross & Atlantis legends... BTW, the cross was also found to have been used as a religious symbol in the Americas centuries before the New World was discovered and included the Inca "Bent Cross" which, except for being reversed, was identical to to Nazi Swatztica.
What is curious is that crosses used for crucifiction were almost always erected in an "X" shape with a limb extending along each direction of the board. This was a standardize because it easier to erect and take down. The standing "+" cross dropped into a post hole would have been very unstable & creat much more logistic difficulties for the execution & removal crews. Another problem is the Christian acceptance that the spikes were driven into the palms of the hand. There is insufficient support with this method and the flesh would have ripped away beteen the digits. Historically the spikes would have been driven just below the wrists to take advantage of the paired bones, wrist joints & tendons to distribute the weight keep the bodies from falling off.
BTW, crucifixions of the Jews in Rome ocurred not only during the Jewish rebellions following circa 60AD, but continued in earnest AFTER Rome "turned Christian". Also executed were Christians who didn't follow the Romanized version of Christianity.
The Church has long claimed that the canonization of the Bible occurred in a democratic style process where differing views were freely discussed amongst ALL the Christian bishops of Rome. This is like claiming the current US Congress is comprised of mostly moderates, so therefore everyones voices are being heard. Hogwash! The majority of the Council of Nicea were those that followed the Christian doctrine as presented by John's disciples. There is no mention of any Essene bishops, nor Gnostic representation. John was a zealot and his doctrine very fundamentalistic and rigid. The followers of John specifically detested Gnostic Christianity, which advocated individual persuit of religious knowledge & education, rather than blindly following the teachings of any priest. While Peter was designated the first pope of Christianity & was at least willing to entertain discussion, John's doctrine demanded strict unquestioned obediance, setting an example later inherited by the Holy Roman Empire. If you follow the travels of the apostles & disciples, you find that John had an army of disciples who followed behind the other apostles. They visited the same churches, sometimes right on Peter's heels, and frequently revisited or remained in residence to ensure they "got the message right". Immediately following the Council of Nicea, and long before the "approved & canonized" books were ever gathered into a single volumn, Constantine issued Imperial decrees requiring the destruction of certain texts, particularly targeted were Gnostic writings. It was the death penalty for anyone caught with these texts or teaching from forbidden writings. Many like the Essenes began to hide their writings in the hopes that things might eventually blow over. The Dead Sea Scrolls was just such cache of scriptures.

Kori Fitch-Adams from Page on December 24, 2009:
Romans were experts at crucifying Jews. In the book "Jesus Papers" they stated an estimated 500 Jews were crucified a day. This was just part of their rule. Lets not get too romantic about Jesus up there like all the rest of the Jews. Now what may of happened before that or after is another story. Great Hub!!!! And so we must consider the Romans the perfect Big Brother- those who knew how to use and abuse the religions, rituals, and whatever else of the day to manipulate the masses. This would be Christianity. Now if Jesus did exist- so be it- and his message was probably sincere- but so many il-intentioned MEN put their dirty little hands on a divine intent/message- and thus here we are trying to figure it out. Keep writing ro-jo-yo- We must continue the education of the masses.
ghandi on September 23, 2009:
so what? repetition of symbols is very common among religions. so common that they're either all related (unlikely) or that symbols can be broken down into simple, recognizable shapes (more likely).
what's your point?
Andrew on August 18, 2009:
"The Romans often had the very heavy and cumbersome upright post/stake already in place, and it was the cross-section that is described as being carried to the site with Jesus. Once there, our Savior was nailed to the horizontal beam which was then lifted up and fastened to the upright stake, thereby forming the cross - the symbol of our Savior's Sacrifice" (taken from http://www.keyway.ca/htm2002/crosstak.htm).

Don't read too much into this. the trinity is apparently as old as monotheistic religion, if not older. In the place of religion we should have reverence. In the place of dogma we should contemplate virtue. Denominations in christianity are ridiculous considering jesus came to unite people and here we are dividing the word of Jah like lawyers
