Call no man Rabbi


Recently, we have been alerted to a review of the Eth CEPHER by a fellow who holds himself out as Rabbi Eved Banah who gives Theological Insights from Beit Geulah in Morganton, NC. 

Mattithyahu (Matthew) 23:8
But do not be called Rabbi: for one is your Rabbi, even HA’MASHIACH; and all you are brethren.

So, we begin with Rabbi Eved Banah’s rejection of this teaching at the very outset.  For this reason alone, those of the house of Yashar’el should take his arguments as being without credibility.  However, during this transition from the apostasy of the American public charities holding themselves out as churches to the true called out assembly, many people whose floor has collapsed become double-minded, their seed having been strewn on hard soil, and many are inclined to listen to the voice of those who overtly act in rebellion to the teaching of MASHIACH, who assert themselves as a superior voice to the Besorah, and who again lead those without eyes to see or ears to hear into the blindness of worshipping stones, serpents, or the hosts of heaven.  Listen to him at your own risk.

Rabbi Eved Banah begins his false witness saying the following:

If you are looking for a translation from someone who is knee deep in sacred name theology yet doesn't know a lick of Hebrew but somehow puts out a translation....do I have a piece of cow manure for you....it is called the Eth CEPHER.  Now, I am usually not this tough on translations but this one takes the cake and everything else in the refrigerator as well as the baking soda box.  Let’s [sic] look at just some of the numerous issues with this Bible (oh wait, the guy who put this together said the word Bible is pagan).

Bear in mind that the Eth CEPHER has a meticulously transcribed Torah and a meticulously transcribed Besor’oth (Gospels) within.  Quite a denunciation of the Word. But what is the good rabbi really saying?

Translation: I fancy myself as a superior Hebrew scholar to those idiots at the Cepher Publishing Group and now assert my argument ad hominem by calling them my family names (“cow manure”) which is supported by the logical conclusions of a self-righteous rabbinical scholar whose specialty is name-calling, including the exaltation of himself to the post of rabbi.

First of all, he knows nothing about how many people were involved in putting the text together; he knows nothing about the methods we used to reach our conclusions; he knows nothing of the editors involved or the conclusions reached or why the conclusions were reached.  Instead, he belches up his fecal-laden criticism with name-calling from ignorance; which is something one might expect from someone who has eyes yet cannot see, and ears yet cannot hear.

However, his “Hebrew” scholarship is critically concerned with the pronunciation of the name.  This is no shock to us, because of the blinding of the Jews; that is, those of Babylonian Judaism who follow in strict accord to the teaching of the Amalekite Rabbi Akiva – whose curses placed against the followers of MASHIACH have cursed the followers of Babylonian Judaism now for almost 1900 years – in treating the sacred name like the dirtiest word on earth.  Of course, those who are of this curse go to extreme lengths to ensure that no one other than those who declare themselves to be the synagogue of Satan should have access to Hebrew – where the sacred name is readily understood – and that understanding or setting forth the sacred name as it is accurately stated is not for the dogs and partial human beings who such self-appointed windbags like this “rabbi” call goyiym.  

There is nothing about Rabbi Eved Banah’s verbal detritus which is consistent with the teaching of MASHIACH.  So, he utters the party line of those who deny access to the adamah qodesh to the house of Yashar’el, claiming a false citizenship; they seek to deny access to the sacred name to those who do not, who cannot, and who will never be able to, speak Hebrew; and they ridicule anyone who would dare to reveal an understanding of scripture that is other than their Talmudic-worshipping, Pharisee-leading, Mishnah-practicing, G-d hating, Rabbi-loving hypocrisy.  We know so much more than you do, they say in their never-ending midrash, each one screaming and pounding their fist in disagreement over each and every term of the Tanakh, spewing hatred and condescension at those who do not deny MASHIACH equally with them, demanding a daily denunciation in their nineteenth verse of the Amidah, denouncing those who have not demanded the crucifixion of HA’MASHIACH anew, and expelling those who have a true YAH above their self-proclaimed G-d who is Caesar, although privately, they worship their true father, HaSatan. 

Yet, he is not alone.  Within the Messianic movement, there are many who quickly appointed themselves to be a rabbi.  They claim secret or greater knowledge than the laity, or even you, and they lead their followers into darkness and spiritual blindness, blending their teaching with the reforms and traditions (the ta’akenath and ma’asiym) of the rabbis who came before them; bringing old rabbinical folklore into every teaching, instructing in the ways of the Mishnah (the duplicate) and the Talmud, while never, ever, pointing to the Besor’oth (the gospels).  And soon, the teaching of Pa’al (and yes, he referred to himself in the Hebrew name of worker) becomes anathema, because they cannot reconcile Galatiym (Galatians) or Qolasiym (Colossians).  Once Pa’al is denounced, the gospels soon follow, and the reforms and the traditions become the practice.  Many however, walk right on out of scripture entirely, blaspheming the RUACH HA’QODESH, the son YAHUSHA, and even the father YAHUAH, in favor of Sumerian mythology as rewritten by modern “historians” and clamor after the Teraphiym, and the names of the Kamariym. 

Mishlei (Proverbs) 26:11
As a dog returns to his vomit, so a fool returns to his folly.

Yesha’yahu (Isaiah) 19:13-14
The princes of Tso`an are become fools, the princes of Noph are deceived; they have also seduced את eth-Mitsrayim, even those who are the stay of the tribes thereof. 14 YAHUAH has mingled a perverse ruach in the midst thereof: and they have caused את eth-Mitsrayim to err in every work thereof, as a drunken man staggers in his vomit.

Kepha Sheniy (2 Peter) 2:20-22
For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of ADONAI and the Savior YAHUSHA HA’MASHIACH, they are again entangled, and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the beginning. 21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn back from the holy commandment delivered to them. 22 But it has happened to them according to the true proverb: The dog has returned to his own vomit; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

We give thanks, however, for such critics.  Scripture translations are tested by fire, to be sure.  I sometimes marvel at how little challenge was brought against the Message, or the NIV, or for that matter, any of the bibles based on the Westcott & Hort falsified textus receptus; but it seemed the “church” was more than willing to support the paraphrasing of the sacred text to work a tickle among those who followed them.  And as much as the name-calling is personally hurtful and life-taking, the test of the Hebrew is important.

In addition, we give thanks that the Eth CEPHER has struck such a vital nerve for the good rabbi (and he is not the only person in this country calling himself rabbi who has been so greatly offended by the Eth CEPHER; some have been called to burn this book containing the gospels and the Torah, the prophets and the writings, because their Arianistic view of MASHIACH was offended in the correct assessment found in Philippians 2:11).  Many of these who launch such attacks are the heirs of those in Yerushalayim who sought to stone HA’MASHIACH and who are the sons of those who killed the prophets before them.  We shall know them by their fruits.

For those of you who cannot reach your own conviction, and who wish to follow after the shallow name-calling arguments, the scoffing and the derision found in this kind of criticism, consider the foundation of his belief, and do not be surprised when the stone which the builder’s rejected becomes for you a stumbling stone.

Genetics in Scripture
