 Y'shua to Zeus

TAKEN FROM THE ARAMAIC ENGLISH NEW
TESTAMENT (APPENDIX PP. 1055-1056)

Andrew Gabriel Roth    Netzari Press

  While it is true that Iesous became the Greek substitute for Yehoshua (Greek Septuagint translation of the Tanakh), it is also true that the Greek language is very capable of reproducing the name of Yehoshua (Y’shua) with exact sonic pronunciation. However, an etymological link evolved between Iesous, Zeus, and Jesus, pronounced: Ie-soos, Zoos; and Jee-zuhs. Regardless as to whether one recognizes sonic similarities or not, there are many other factors that connect the Christian worship of Jesus to Zeus. Notice “Elizeus” in the 1611 King James Version (Luke 4:27), spelled exactly as seen here, is a name that weds the pagan deity Zeus with the Elohim of Israel. While this is clear evidence of a blatant pagan connection to Zeus worship, we’ve only begun to scratch the surface.

 

Historians have noted that for many centuries busts of Zeus were prominently displayed in many Christian churches throughout Europe – not only Catholic Churches where idolatry is a normative, but also in “Orthodox” churches. The original busts of Zeus were imported into the most prominent front and center parts of “Christian sanctuaries.” Rav Shaul’s letters had not been heeded by the Church. In the year 230 C.E. the Christian “Church Founder” Tertulian wrote: “But [Gentile Christian] who are strangers to (Jewish) Sabbaths, and new moons, and festivals, once acceptable to God, the Saturnalia, the feasts of January, the Brumalia and Matronalia are now frequented, with gifts being carried to and fro.”

  Early in Roman church history it was very fashionable to syncretize pagan worship into Christianity. One of the most evident pagan elements is the sun-child of December twenty-fifth who became the son-child of “Mary the mother of God.” Ishtar, from where the fish symbol originated, was also a carry-over into Christianity, and transubstantiation is another pagan rite that was ripped right out of paganism and dropped into the Easter wafer, in which most Christians indulge.

  As mentioned before, the Vatican sports a huge brazen obelisk at the center of St. Peter’s square that was brought to the Church from Heliopolis, Egypt, by the Roman emperor Caligual. The obelisk is a phallic symbol (penis) that dedicates the Roman Catholic Church to sun worship in the name of Ishtar (Easter). Caligula considered himself god and demanded worship as a physical god – not unlike the Catholic Pope who postures himself as being infallible and in the place of god. The difference between modern Catholicism and paganism is mere semantics. The Catholic Church demonstrates all manner of demonic spirit that Caligula himself “enjoyed,” including an abundance of extremely high level pedophile sex crimes. Those who are not Catholic, however, need not point their fingers, because every Christian who erects a Christmas tree or attends church on Sunday or celebrates Easter or Valentine’s Day is blindly following Roman Catholic authority.

  Y’shua Mashiyach is the government of YHWH, he is altogether Righteous, Just and Lawful, but most Christians are adamant that “Jesus did away with the Law.” There is plenty of evidence that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt the Mashiyach Y’shua has been utterly betrayed by the vast majority of Christianity. But the greatest “slap in the face” to Mashiyach, is that when Christians are scripturally presented with the truth about Mashiyach Y’shua, rather than repenting and turning to YHWH, most choose to ignore Truth, and continue to follow pagan customs. Most Christians ask, “What difference does it make?” because they see no difference between the absolute Truth of the Perfect Mashiyach versus a false religious system that invented Je-Zeus according to a mixture of truth and paganism.

  The distinctions of Mashiyach’s government are universal and unchanging regardless of how he is personified by Christians, Jews, Muslims and all other religions. Although Christians may posture a Jesus deity according to Greco-Roman and pagan traditions, and may even give themselves exclusivity to the Kingdom of Elohim, the fact remains that Y‘shua gave plenty of warnings against man’s traditions when he said: “It will not be that just everyone who says to me, My master, my master, will enter into the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does  the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say unto me in that day, My master, my master, By your name have we not prophesied? And by your name have we cast out demons? And in your name have we done many miracles? And then I will profess to them that from everlasting, I have not known you: depart from me you workers of iniquity. Anyone therefore who hears my words, these, and does them, will be likened to a wise man, who built his house on a stone” (Matthew 7:21-24).

  Y’shua used many parables and metaphors to bring the point across that the carnal nature of man must die so the spiritual man can live within him. There are no religious substitutes that can be given in exchange for living a righteous lifestyle in Machiyach. Everyone who has put forth an effort to live a life pleasing to Master YHWH regardless of religion, has experienced what it means to bear the infamy of truth and make war against the carnal nature; which is why Y’shua said, “…I say to you, that unless you eat the body of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in Qnoma. And he who eats from my body and drinks from my blood has life that is everlasting, and I will raise him up on the last day. For truly my body is food and truly my blood is drink. He who eats my body and drinks my blood abides in me and I in him. As the Living Father has sent me, and I live because of the Father, and whoever eats of me he also will live because of me. This is the Bread that has descended from Heaven. It is not as manna your forefathers ate and died. He who east this Bread will live forever!” (Yochanan 6:53-58) [AENT]

Many people today think it is ok to practice " SYNCRETISM " of idol title names and add them to YHWH's or Yahweh's Name, however, read this article below, and see if its ok with Yahweh, however, some out there like the socalled Evangelist Ted R. Weiland says " that people like us are overeacting to this ", Is it over reacting because we obey EVERY WORD OF YHWH OF SCRIPTURES as Messiah said to do as He quoted from Deut.8:3; Matt.4:4 ?? ( See here:  http://www.missiontoisrael.org/sacred-name.php ) however, Ted can't seem to make his mind up whether to call the Messiah  by the names of " Yashua or Yahshua " ( Ted, the Messiah's correct Name by Transliteration from Hebrew to English is " Yahwehshua " or Yahweh Savior The Redeemer ( See Isa.43:1; Isa.44:6 ), also, as by his own admissions he practices " syncretism " of the idol titles of ' lord ' or 'god ' to Abba Yahweh, and thinks by his own reasoning because of the many Translations of scriptures into all these other languages as the translators in their prefaces admit that they chose " LORD " and " GOD " as proper nouns and  that are indeed idols, they did this because of traditions of men as they admit in the preface of their translations, and as a paradox, Ted R. Weiland like many others thinks Yahweh accepts this in worship,but let Ted R. Weiland as well as others who practices SYNCRETISM read this article below to see if  YAHWEH accepts such practices, and let them see the origins of these idols titles, and he and others may be in for a shock of whom they really agree with and whom they really worship according to scriptures.

The title of this article also asks: What is “syncretism “? If we look this word up in a reputable dictionary such as Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary 1977 of “ syn-cre-tism”/ sin-kre-tiz-em/ syncretismus from Greek syn-Kretismos federation of Cretan cities, syn-+ Kret-,Kres Cretan 1. The combination of DIFFERENT FORMS OF BELIEF OR PRACTICE.2. The fusion of two or more orig. different inflectional forms. ( W. N.C.D. page 1182 under syncretism). Unquote.

The very word of sin is in this word, and relates to Cretan cities, and if you look in the same dictionary, page 269, under the word “ Cretin “/ kret-’n/ F cretin, fr. F dial Christian, human being, kind of idiot found in the Alps, from Latin christianus- Christian: one afflicted with cretinism; broadly: a person with marked mental deficiency. Unquote.

Many people today worship, but they know not what or who, for Shaul ( Paul) said "" there are lords many and gods many, and there is not in every man this knowledge.""( 1 Cor.8:5-7).

In Isaiah 65:11 is a very interesting statement made by YAHWEH through Isaiah the prophet, which many people have never really investigated in the original texts of scripture.

The Old King James Version has this verse translated thus... ""But ye are they that forsake " the LORD",( Note YHWH==Strongs Exaustive Concordance, S.E.C.Heb.Num.3050,3068 , that forget my holy mountain, that prepare a table for " that troop",( Note GAD==GAWD=S.E.C. Heb. Num.1408,1409==A Babylonian Deity called Baal Gad=lord god ), and that furnish the drink offering unto "that number"( or for fortune or money).""

This Babylonian Deity called Baal Gad was worshipped by the children of Israel ( Joshua 11:17; 12:7; 13:5), and the true Creator considered it Idolatry.

If you look in to the "" Webster's Unabridged Deluxe Dictionary, Second Edition, Page 746, "" GAD, 1.IN THE BIBLE, a son of Jacob. 2. A tribe of Israel descended from him. 3. The land where this tribe lived. GAD, gad, interj. A mild oath or expression of suprise, disgust, e.t.c., A EUPHEMISM FOR GOD. ""

Then, when you look at the word "" Baal"( S.E.C. Heb.Num.1167,1168), and one of its definitions is ""LORD"".

When the title of "" LORD GOD"" is transliterated back into the Hebrew, it is the same title of "" Baal Gad"", a Babylonian Deity that was condemned by YHWH.( Remember Old Eliyahu the Prophet that faced the Baal prophets?).

This word " GOD==GAD==GAWD==GUWD" is pronounced the same, and has been, substituted, also applied to the true Creator YHWH, in most all the English translations of scriptures, and breaking many of the Commandments.

Check this word " GAD=Strongs 1408= GAWD, variation of 1409=GAWD, from  1464= GUwD, and pronounced as " GOD " in English, SEE THIS ADDRESS BELOW AND CLICK ON "" The little speaker "" for its pronounciation.

http://bible.crosswalk.com/Lexicons/OldTestamentHebrew/heb.cgi?number=01408&version=kjv

Now be honest with yourself, is this not the same deity today , or did you " click " on the speaker and listen to its pronounciation ?

See a full detailed discussion concerning this idol deity , and how it connects with todays modern Children of Israel, and how " GOD " means " Jupiter " ie " Zeus " , that we had with others including Larry Acheson at this address below.....

The words " Adon, Lord, Baal , beelzebub" are the one and the same words, and is all titles for " satan the devil", and the shame of people applying these titles to YHWH??  It's untentable! This is why YHWH said what He did in Isa.42:8!

The Etymology or study of ancient to modern English words that the words that the SYNCRETISM of ( Isa.65:11)GOD=GAWD=GUD=GUWD= Germanic GOTT and GUD to English " GAD=GOD is in fact the same idol deity of JUPITER ie- ZEUS which is the name of the idol image of the beast in (Daniel's 4th beast, Dan.7:23 and John's 1st beast in Revelation 13:1-17) are THE ONE AND THE SAME idol deity, and this title/name is branded on the very forehead of the mother and her harlots( Rev.17:5) that people are ignorantly calling on today through satan's deception( Rev.12:9), and in fact are worshipping him ( Rev.13:3-4; Rev.13:8) in deception and ignorance( ie- by not knowing it).

Jupiter (god)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Roman mythology, Jupiter held the same role as Zeus in the Greek pantheon He was CALLED JUPITER OPTIMUS MAXIMUS (Jupiter Highest, Greatest) as the patron deity of the Roman state, in charge of laws and social order. ( By the way, the collossus statue in the Cathedral of the Roman Catholic Church is actually a statue of Jupiter, they re-named it " peter ", it is said that the toes of this statue is wore smooth from people kissing it!)

The name of the god was also adopted as the name of the planet Jupiter, and was the original namesake of the weekday that would come to be known in English as Thursday (the etymological root is more apparent in French jeudi, from Jovis Dies). Ironically, linguistic studies identify him as deriving from the same god as the Germanic Tiwaz (and Zeus), whose name was given to Tuesday. Another etymological reference is Dyaus Pita of the Vedic religion.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jupiter_%28god%29

Greek Zeus,
Roman Jupiter (from Deus Pater),
Vedic Dyaus Pita,
Germanic Tiwaz (later known as Tyr),
Baltic Dievas,
Slavic Div,
Gaulish Dis Pater,
and probably Phrygian Sabazios (from Saba Zeus).
Also etymologically connected is the Latin word for 'god', deus, the word for the Christian God used by the Roman Catholic Church. The latin word is also continued in English divine, deity, and the original Germanic word remains visible in Tuesday (originally "Day of Tiwaz").

Dyeus was addressed as Dyeu Phter, literally "Sky Father" or "shining father", as reflected in Latin Jupiter, Greek Zeu pater, Sanskrit Dyau Pita. In his aspect as a Father God, his consort was Pltvi Mhter, "Earth Mother".


As the pantheons of the individual Indo-European mythologies evolved, attributes of Dyeus were sometimes redistributed to other, newer gods. In Greek and Roman mythology, Dyeus remained the chief god, while in Vedic and Germanic mythology, the etymological continuants of Dyeus became pale, rather featureless gods, and his original attributes, and his dominance over other gods, were transferred to gods whose names cannot be reconstructed for Proto-Indo-European times, such as ODIN , THOR

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dyeus

NOTICE THESE CONNECTIONS OF WODANAZ, ODIN, MERCURY, WODEN of the Anglo Saxan, Tyr, Tiwaz Germanic, and Roman JUPITER as tracing to the Old English Anglo Saxan of ODINN, and the English word " GOD ", C.F. the book of Acts 14:12-13.

Woden
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Woden is the deity in Anglo-Saxon polytheism corresponding to Norse Odin, both continuations of a Proto-Germanic deity, *Wodanaz. Other West Germanic forms of the name include Old Franconian Wodan, Alemannic Wuodan, and German Wotan.

WODEN was worshipped during the Migration period, until the 7th or 8th century, when Germanic paganism was gradually replaced by Christianity. In Anglo-Saxon England, Woden was rationalized as a historical king, and remnants of worship were continued into modern times as folklore, Wodan figuring prominently in both English and Continental folklore as the leader of the Wild Hunt.

Anglo-Saxon Woden

The Anglo-Saxon tribes brought their pagan faith to England around the 5th and 6th centuries and continued in that form of worship until nearly all were converted to Christianity by the 9th century, at which point the old gods and any records of them were almost completely lost
This process of conversion followed an established pattern that is attested in accounts of the same from continental Europe- leaders were baptised for varied reasons, and the conversion of their respective peoples almost always inevitably followed, sometimes in the space of a few years, but more often over the course of a few generations.

For the Anglo-Saxons, WODEN was the carrier-off of the dead, but not necessarily with the exact same attributes of the Norse Odin - there do not appear to have been the concepts of Valkyries and Valhalla in the Norse sense, although there is a word for the former, Waelcyrge.

In addition to the roles named here, Woden was considered to be the leader of the Wild Hunt. The familial relationships are the same between Woden and the other Anglo-Saxon gods as they are for the Norse.

Wednesday (Wōdnes dæg, "Woden's day") is named for him, his link with the dead making him the appropriate match to the Roman Mercury. (Compare with the French mercredi or Italian mercoledì for Wednesday.).

The Anglo-Saxon kings claimed descent from Woden. According to the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle and the Historia Britonum, Woden had the sons Wecta, Baeldaeg, Casere and Wihtlaeg.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W%C5%8Dden

The name Tyr meant "god"(cf. Hangatyr, the "god of the hanged" as one of Odin's names) and goes back to a Proto-Germanic Tîwaz, continuing Proto-Indo-European Dyeus, originally the chief god, the precursor also of e. g. Zeus in Greek mythology, and Dyaus Pitar in Vedic religion.The oldest attestation of the god is Gothic Tyz (Vienna cod. 140 [1])

Tîwaz was overtaken in popularity and in authority by Odin at some point in both the North Germanic and West Germanic traditions. Among East Germanic tribes, however, he seems to have remained the supreme god: the Goths of the 3rd century were feared because they sacrificed the captives they took in battle to Tyz, their god of war, and then hung the arms of the victims in trees as a token-offering.

This custom of human sacrifice seems to have been transferred to Odin in Scandinavia, as reported by Adam von Bremen in the 11th century (compare also Odin himself hanging from a tree as a sacrifice to himself in the Havamal).

It is possible that the transfer of supremacy from Tyr to Odin was facilitated by the Germanic custom of diarchy (see Germanic king and c.f. e.g. Hengest and Horsa, Yngvi and Alf and Erik and Alrik), so that the two gods might have ruled the early Germanic pantheon as equals at some point. A trace of their relationship may be seen in the appearance of Tyr as Odin's son in Norse mythology, and also in Anglo-Saxon, if Tiw is identified with Saxnot (Seaxneat), the 'war-god' and son of Woden, who was revered as the ancestor of the Saxons. In an earlier version, Tyr may have been the son of Hymir, as he is in Hymiskviða (cf. Zeus being a son of Chronos).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiwaz

Hence the connection of all these idol deities to the English "GOD=GAUWD,GUD,GUDENEZ,JUPITER, ZEUS,TIWAZ, as TYR GUDNEZ".

So, as you can SEE the whole world universally worships the idol image of the Roman beast and satan the devil( Rev.13:3-4; Rev.13:8; Rev.13:16-17) through deception ( Rev.12:9)  by this universal Babylonian deity of fortune=GAD=GAWD 1408, 1409=GOD( Isa.65:11)==the Roman ( Dan.7:23, 4th beast, John's 1st and extended beast( Rev.13:1-17) of which is an image of JUPITER GOD/ ZEUS-THEOS .


Notice that all this was adopted into the Roman Catholic church.

Greek Zeus,
Roman Jupiter (from Deus Pater),
Vedic Dyaus Pita,
Germanic Tiwaz (later known as Tyr),
Baltic Dievas,
Slavic Div,
Gaulish Dis Pater,
and probably Phrygian Sabazios (from Saba Zeus).

Also etymologically connected is the Latin word for 'god', deus, the word for the Christian God used by the Roman Catholic Church. The latin word is also continued in English divine, deity, and the original Germanic word remains visible in Tuesday (originally "Day of Tiwaz").

Dyeus was addressed as Dyeu Phter, literally "Sky Father" or "shining father", as reflected in Latin Jupiter, Greek Zeu pater, Sanskrit Dyau Pita. In his aspect as a Father God, his consort was Pltvi Mhter, "Earth Mother".

Do you still think that its a nice idea to continue to re-define idol title/ name deities such as GAD=GAWD( Isa.65:11)=GOD=GOTT= TYR= ODIN= WODEN=TIWAZ=ZEUS=JUPITER and apply these re-defined meanings of idol title/ name deities TO YHWH= YAH ??

If you still think its ok, then you had better read about the practice of SYNCRETISIM of other nations idol gods or deities to YHWH in ( 2 Kings 17:32-41 )  and the whole chapter starting with verse 1., however here is the gist of this practice of syncretisim of other idol elohim or deities , while fearing YHWH at the same time.


The true Creator spoke through Jeremiah the prophet and said this would happen in the last days..."" How long shall this be in the heart( mind) of the prophets that prophesy lies?...Which think to cause my people to FORGET MY NAME( YHWH==YAH=3050, 3068, see Psalms 68:4 -N.K.J.V. )...as their fathers have forgotten MY NAME( YHWH==3050,3068 for (Baal Gad==LORD GOD).""( Jer.23:26-27).  SEE also that this is a Prophecy for "" THE LATTER DAYS ""( See -Yer.Jer. 23:20 ).

Also, He says that He would remove the names ( plural ) of Balim ( lord and god) out of their mouths ( See also Hosea 2:16-17 ).

How about getting an early start at doing that today before he does it forcefully ?

Have you investigated this matter fully?

The children of Israel was condemned for such Idolatry, and the Apostle Paul said, "" There are LORDS MANY and GODS MANY, and there is not in every man this knowledge.""( 1 Cor.8:5-7).

YHWH commanded to NOT EVEN MENTION other deities( Exod.23:13, Joshua 23:7, Deut.5:7), and the English " god==gad" is of pagan origin( See Encyclopedieas), even tracing back to the time of the Israelites.

To apply other pagan deities to YHWH is expressly forbidden, and violates the " 1st, 2nd, and 3rd" commandments( Exod.20:2-7 ), as most all the English translations of scriptures have done, and so deceiving all the common people.

Even Solomon succommed to practiceing " Syncretisim", or combinning pagan deities to YHWH because of his 700 wives and 300 concubines, and he too was condemned for his Idolatry( 1 Kings 11:4-5,33).

In every place that "" Ashtoroth==Astarte==Easter" was practiced, so was the worship of the Babylonian deity called "" Baal Gad=Lord God""( Judges 2:11,13, 1 Kings 11:33), and it was condemned by YHWH= YAH.

The word "god" comes from the Old German ""Gott, Guth"", which originated from worship of tarus the bull( See All Encyclopedieas especially the Brittanica of word "god").

SEE ADDRESS BELOW...

http://88.1911encyclopedia.org/G/GO/GOD.htm  


So did Solomon " think there was nothing wrong" with combinning pagan deities to YHWH either, but YAH certainly did think it was wrong, and this resulted in rending the Kingdom from him, and the split of the Kingdom, and the rejection of Solomon.( 1 Kinngs 11:5-6 ). 

Question : Is it ok ( in Yah's eyes) for Muslims to combine their "" Alah"( as their god=deity) to YHWH?

There are many examples in scriptures where the children of Israel were taken captive by other nation for practicing " syncretisim" of pagan deities to YHWH ( See Judges Chapter 2 ).

In ( Acts 14:12-15) of the pagan Jupiter ( Note = ZEUS ), which is another example of combining pagan deities to YHWH, but to the Romans and Greeks, Jupiter and Zeus was the suppreme being, but he was NOT the suppreme being according to Paul either.

If Shaul ( Paul= Saul ) used the name of " je'sus, he'sus, ha'zeus " as people used today, then, why would there have been any argument here, as these were practicing idolatry??

It may not seem to make a difference to human beings, but it certainly does to YHWH, as His Word absolutely proves that it does matter.

The Hebrew words " EL" and " Elohim" existed long BEFORE ( According to scriptures) and it was originally a pure word title applied to YAH( Strongs 3050 ); but pagan cultures adopted it and applied it to their deities; but the word " gad=god" was used exclusively to a pagan Babylonian deity of Baal ( =lord) Gad(= god), and used for worship of taurus the bull as a molten image ( See Encyclopedieas).

Inspite of what commentaries, lexicons, e.t.c. say, the word " god= gad" is not a correct transliteration from the word " EL" in Hebrew, EL is singular for Elohim, and Elohim Meaning ALL MIGHTY ONE.

The Titles of " EL and Elohim" was originally pure Titles applied to YAHWEH, but the word " god=gad" was and is applied to a Babylonian deity, which is condemned in ( Isaiah 65:11).

For ye are they that forsake YHWH , that forget my holy mountain ( signified by forgetting His Laws ) , that prepare a table for GAWD ( Note the Hebrew DG is read from right to left, however, read it left to right its GD meaning GOD ).. See also verse 12 of Isa.65:11-12.

In ( Jer.8:8) it was prophesied that the scribes and translators would alter the scriptures texts.

And an example of that is by comparing N.T. texts as quoted from the original scriptures, with that of the O.T.texts.

Example of alteration from Hebrew to Greek to English is as follows below.

In the ( O.K.J.V.) of ( Matt.4:4; Luke 4:4) where Messiah said ""...but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of "" GOD( English)"", and "" Theos ( Greek)"".

Here, the Messiah quoted( compare) from ( Deut.8:3)
which should read, "" .... but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of "" THE LORD"( K.J.V.)( =S.E.C. Heb.Numbs. 3050,3068==YAH) doth man live.""

Why is the word "" god"" used in ( Matt.4:4; Luke 4:4) and the word "" LORD" is used in ( Deut.8:3), but both leave out the true name of YHWH=YAH( 3050,3068)??

The Greeks used their " deity" of " Theos" in translation, and the English merely used theirs of "" God"", but the original text says "" YHWH=YAH "( 3050,3068).

This is one prime example of alteration and syncretisim, and covering up the true Creator's name with pagan titles in other cultures languages.

To the Greeks and Romans, their " Theos deity" was Zeus and Jupiter, not the true Creator YHWH=YAH, and whenever the scriptures were translated into other cultures languages, the translators merely inserted their own " Deity" in place of the true Name of YAH ( Strong's 3050).

This may come as an EYE OPENER and a shock to many, but the Book of Revelation says that in the last days the whole earth would be worshipping satan the devil ( See Rev.12:9; Rev.13:3-4,8; Rev.13:8) and the beast kingdom through his deception

Now do you think that traditional christianity is not deceived too? People better think again.

Paul certainly NEVER used the pagan title of " theos", because Paul admitted that he observed the entirety of the law( Acts 24:14), and that would include ( Exod.20:2-7; Exod.23:13, Deut.5:7 ).

Also, Paul was against their " pagan theos of Jupiter ie Zeus " in ( Acts 14:11-15), and if he preached the name of " je'sus " to them, then, there would have been no uproar, and besides, if he spoke that name ' je'sus ', then Paul would have lied and broken the very laws, that he himself said he kept all his life Acts 24:14, and we know that Paul NEVER lied.

But, no matter how much proof from scriptures that is given to people, and even examples such as Solomon that practiced " syncretisim", which was, and still is prohibitted and condemned by YHWH, people will still do what they see right in their own eyes.

Notice that all this was adopted into the Roman Catholic church, and many many people are still sucking from the mother of harlots and have been made DRUNK by the wine of her spiritual fornication, for that is also the practice of SYNCRETISM of Baalim as Messiah warned about in ( Rev.2:6 and verse 14 ).

Greek Zeus,
Roman Jupiter (from Deus Pater),
Vedic Dyaus Pita,
Germanic Tiwaz (later known as Tyr),
Baltic Dievas,
Slavic Div,
Gaulish Dis Pater,
and probably Phrygian Sabazios (from Saba Zeus).

Also etymologically connected is the Latin word for 'god', deus, the word for the Christian God used by the Roman Catholic Church. The latin word is also continued in English divine, deity, and the original Germanic word remains visible in Tuesday (originally "Day of Tiwaz").

Dyeus was addressed as Dyeu Phter, literally "Sky Father" or "shining father", as reflected in Latin Jupiter, Greek Zeu pater, Sanskrit Dyau Pita. In his aspect as a Father God, his consort was Pltvi Mhter, "Earth Mother".

The Nicolaitanes or Nicolaitans were a group of people mentioned twice in the book of Revelation in the New Testament. According to this reference, they were known in the cities of Ephesus and Pergamos around A.D. 99. The church at Ephesus (Rev. 2:6) is commended for "hating the deeds of the Nicolaitanes," and the church of Pergamos is blamed for "having them who hold their doctrines" (15). There is no other first-hand evidence to give us certainty about the nature of this sect.

Several of the early church fathers, including Irenaeus, Epiphanius, and Theodoret mentioned this group. Irenaeus[1] discusses them but adds nothing to the Apocalypse except that "they lead lives of unrestrained indulgence." Tertullian refers to them, but apparently knows only what is found in St. John[2]. Hippolytus of Rome based his narrative on Irenaeus, though he states that the deacon Nicholas was the author of the heresy and the sect (Philosph., VII, xxvi). Clement of Alexandria[3] exonerates Nicholas, and attributes the doctrine of promiscuity, which the sect claimed to have derived from him, to a malicious distortion of words harmless in themselves. With the exception of the statement in Eusebius (H. E., III, xxix) that the sect was short-lived, none of the references in Epiphanius, Theodoret etc. deserve mention, as they are taken from Irenaeus.

The common statement, that the Nicolaitanes held the antinomian heresy of Corinth, seems not to have been proved.[citation needed] Another opinion, favoured by a number of authors, is that, because of the allegorical character of the Apocalypse, the reference to the Nicolaitans is merely a symbolic manner of reference.[citation needed]

Scofield, in his Notes on the Bible, following dispensationalist thought, suggests that the Seven Letters in Revelation foretell the various eras of Christian history, and that "Nicolaitans" "refers to the earliest form of the notion of a priestly order, or "clergy," which later divided an equal brotherhood into "priests" and "laity.""

Barnes notes: "Vitringa supposes that the word is derived from νικος, victory, and λαος, people, and that thus it corresponds with the name Balaam, as meaning either lord of the people, or he destroyed the people; and that, as the same effect was produced by their doctrines as by those of Balaam, that the people were led to commit fornication and to join in idolatrous worship, they might be called Balaamites or Nicolaitanes--that is, corrupters of the people. But to this it may be replied,

(a) that it is far-fetched, and is adopted only to remove a difficulty;

(b) that there is every reason to suppose that the word here used refers to a class of people who bore that name, and who were well known in the two churches specified;

(c) that, in Rev 2:15 , they are expressly distinguished from those who held the doctrine of Balaam, Rev 2:14 --"So hast thou also (και) those that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes.""

                                                                             Who is NIKE ?

In Greek mythology, Nike (pronounced /ˈnaɪkiː/; Greek Νίκη pronounced [níːkɛː], meaning Victory), was a goddess who personified triumph throughout the ages of the ancient Greek culture. Depending upon the time of various myths, she was described as the daughter of Pallas (Titan) and Styx (Water), and the sister of Cratos (Strength), Bia (Force), and of Zelus (Rivalry). Nike and her siblings all became described as attendants of Zeus when his cult gained the position of the dominant deity of the Greek pantheon and the roles of older deities were changed in new myths. According to classical (later) myth, Styx brought them to Zeus when the god was assembling allies for the Titan War against the older deities. Nike assumed the role of the divine charioteer, a role in which she often is portrayed in Classical Greek art. Her Roman counterpart is Victoria. Nike is seen with wings in most statues and paintings. Most other winged deities in the Greek pantheon had shed their wings by Classical times.

 Worship

Worship of the goddess Nike included procesions, libations, or sacrifices that were performed to elicit the favour of Nike. Petitions in the form of prayers could be presented to the priestesses officiating in the temples, who would communicate these to the goddess at the sacred oracles. If an answer was received from the goddess it would be presented to the petitioner by the priestess.

Temples also were used as banks and could store coins for safekeeping. The great statue of Athena Parthenos in the Parthenon in Athens is thought to have depicted Nike standing in the hand of the gigantic statue. This Nike statue was made of solid gold, which was (along with the gold plating of the Parthenos statue) the Athenian state's official gold deposit in the form of a "sacred treasury".

The Parthenon complex also included a Temple of Athena Nike, built around 410 BC. The Athenians dedicated a statue to Nike at Delphi also. The statue of Zeus at Olympia reportedly depicted Nike as well. On occasions, Athena was depicted with Nike's attributes. According to Pausanias, the statue of Athena Nike depicted a wingless Nike ("Nike Apteros"), supposedly so that the statue could never leave the city of Athens.

This temple at Olympia also has provided a famous surviving depiction of the goddess, Nike unfastening her sandal ("Nike Slancio"), which originally was part of the temple parapet. This statue is now on display in the Acropolis Museum in Athens. Another Nike statue, the headless Winged Victory of Samothrace, is featured in the Louvre.

Nike also is depicted standing in the hand of another statue of Athena in the temple of Zeus in Malaki.

 
 
However, as I said before: But, no matter how much proof from scriptures that is given to people, and even examples such as Solomon that practiced " syncretisim", which was, and still is prohibitted and condemned by YHWH, people will still do what they see right in their own eyes.

Notice that all this was adopted into the Roman Catholic church, and many many people are still sucking from the mother of harlots and have been made DRUNK by the wine of her spiritual fornication, for that is also the practice of SYNCRETISM of Baalim as Messiah warned in ( Rev.2:6 and verse 14 ).

I do believe that there are honest people out there, and those who are truely TRUTH SEEKERS will eventually see this truth, and realize that practicing syncretism is the doctrine of the idol goddess NIKE- o-laitans Revelation 2:6 and the practices of Baalim Revelation 2:14. 

The church of the Nicolaitanes  have the very Babylonian names of Blasphemy written upon their foreheads or in their minds today ( Revelation 17:5 ). However, the people that have been Redeemed will have the Name of the Lamb - Yah'shua and the Name of His Father Yahweh written upon their foreheads or in their minds ( Revelation 7: 1-11; Revelation 14:1; Revelation 22: 4 ).

   Which name do you have in your forehead or mind today? Choose you this day whom you will worship --only--Yahweh --or Baal, --Yah'shua Messiah ---or  Ie-Zeus,  Kristos ?

   Acts 2:38 Kepha ( Peter ) said ---Repent and be baptized every one of you in the NAME of Yah'shua Messiah for the remission of sins and you shall receive the gift of the Set Apart Spirit.

Otherwise, how could satan the devil deceive the whole world and its inhabitants into worshipping him in THE END TIMES ( See-Rev.12:9; Rev.13:3-4; Rev.13:8 ) ? Think about it, and pray about it, because in times past Yahweh winked at such ignorance, however, I do believe He nolonger winks at it, but commands all men everywhere to REPENT!.

ONE GOD--By George Gabler

 

ONE GOD

Many believe they can worship anything they want because of the doctrine of universality, like the woman of Samaria1 who professed her faith to Rabbi Yah'shua, and like so many worshippers today, she thought she was in the truth. Yes, she thought that she was worshipping the right way, just as you do. However, Rabbi Yah'shua told her that she didn't know what she was worshipping.

Rabbi Yah’shua concluded by pointing out that if she wanted to be a true worshipper, that she must worship Yahweh in spirit and truth.

But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. Yahweh is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. John 4:23-24

It would seem that Rabbi Yah'shua did not agree with her universalistic (there is only one deity) doctrine, affirming that salvation is of the Jews2.

How do you feel being told that salvation is of the Jews? Angry? Confused? You’ve been indoctrinated that only your religion can lead to salvation, but our Savior clearly stated otherwise, salvation is of the Jews! What will you do?

The universalistic notion that all worship is acceptable was prevalent from the beginning. Even Rabbi Shaul, also known as the Apostle Paul, said there are many deities and lords, calling them devils3.

This concept would become the dominant theme throughout the centuries, because Rabbi Yochannan, also known as John the revelator, revealed that just prior to the return of Messiah that the world would be worshipping devils4, not The Father.

Did you know that the prophet Isaiah names one of these powerful demons in chapter 65 and verse 11? The Hebrew name for The One whose name means Divide and Conquer, is called GOD. With the proper names revealed, the verse says:

But ye are they that forsake YAHWEH,
that forget my holy mountain,
that prepare a table for GOD...

YAHWEH is the true MightyOne of Israel, but GOD is the created being5, the angel of light6 who rebelled against YAHWEH, divided the angelic realm7, and invaded heaven8 in a failed coup attempt to replace YAHWEH as The One True MightyOne to be worshipped.

That GOD is not YAHWEH is confirmed by other sources as well.

What the Catholic religion admits will simply shock you! The definitions are somewhat dry, but very enlightening once they are actually understood, so I encourage you to have patience when reading the material. To sum up the information:

Yahweh is not connected to "God", as the Catholic Encyclopedia at newadvent.com clearly reveals, because when showing the source of "God"…neither Yahweh or the bible is ever mentioned!

__________________________________________

Etymology of the Word "God"
The Catholic Encyclopedia:
http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/06608x.htm

(Anglo-Saxon God; German Gott; akin to Persian khoda; Hindu khooda).

God can variously be defined as:

the proper name of the one Supreme and Infinite Personal Being, the Creator and Ruler of the universe, to whom man owes obedience and worship;

the common or generic name of the several supposed beings to whom, in polytheistic religions, Divine attributes are ascribed and Divine worship rendered;

the name sometimes applied to an idol as the image or dwelling-place of a god.

The root-meaning of the name (from Gothic root gheu; Sanskrit hub or emu, "to invoke or to sacrifice to") is either "the one invoked" or "the one sacrificed to." From different Indo-Germanic roots (div, "to shine" or "give light"; thes in thessasthai "to implore") come the Indo-Iranian deva, Sanskrit dyaus (gen. divas), Latin deus, Greek theos, Irish and Gaelic dia, all of which are generic names; also Greek Zeus (gen. Dios, Latin Jupiter (jovpater), Old Teutonic Tiu or Tiw (surviving in Tuesday), Latin Janus, Diana, and other proper names of pagan deities. The common name most widely used in Semitic occurs as 'el in Hebrew, 'ilu in Babylonian, 'ilah in Arabic, etc.; and though scholars are not agreed on the point, the root-meaning most probably is "the strong or mighty one."

In the "definitions" it is clearly stated that "God" is a common (or generic) name of several supposed beings [not YAHWEH] to whom, in polytheistic religions, Divine attributes are ascribed and Divine worship rendered". That means they are pagan idols, i.e. demonic, entities that are related to the name "God" …and worshipped!

What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing? But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to Yahweh: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. [1Cor 10:19-20 (Deu 32:15-19)]

So the scriptures are clearly against incorporating the worship of other deities and attributing it to Yahweh.

And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us mighty-ones, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.
And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me.
And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron. And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy mighty-ones, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.
And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, To morrow is a feast to YAHWEH.
And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play.
And YAHWEH said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves: They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy mighty-ones, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. [Exo 32:1-7]

Of course the people didn't think it was so bad. When Moses confronts Aaron, look at the excuse he offers.

And Moses said unto Aaron, What did this people unto thee, that thou hast brought so great a sin upon them?
And Aaron said, Let not the anger of my lord wax hot: thou knowest the people, that they are set on mischief. For they said unto me, Make us mighty-ones, which shall go before us: for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.
And I said unto them, Whosoever hath any gold, let them break it off. So they gave it me: then I cast it into the fire, and there came out this calf
. [19-24]

While the Israelites proclaimed it a "feast to YAHWEH"… showing that they were combining their worship and sacrifice with Yahweh's name, Yahweh rejected their intent and explanation.

And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses said unto the people, Ye have sinned a great sin: and now I will go up unto YAHWEH; peradventure I shall make an atonement for your sin.
And Moses returned unto YAHWEH, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them mighty-ones of gold. Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin--; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written.
And YAHWEH said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book. Therefore now go, lead the people unto the place of which I have spoken unto thee: behold, mine Angel shall go before thee: nevertheless in the day when I visit I will visit their sin upon them. And YAHWEH plagued the people, because they made the calf, which Aaron made. [30-35]

We see then, that there can be no mixing of idolatry with true worship.

In addition, it should be remembered that Sanskrit is the source of the other languages, not the other way around. The Unabridged Edition of the Oxford Etymology of the English Language shows that the Sanskrit word meaning "to invoke" is "to invoke by incantation, magic" and is associated with "cutting" and "mutilation"! Note the similarity from yourdictionary.com.

Indo-European Root Etymology
http://www.yourdictionary.com/ahd/roots/zzg02900.html

gheu()-
To call, invoke. Oldest form *heu()-, becoming *gheu()- in centum languages. Suffixed zero-grade form *ghu-to-, "the invoked," god.

GOD, from Old English god, god;

a. GIDDY, from Old English gydig, gidig, possessed, insane, from Germanic *gud-iga-, possessed by a god;

GöTTERDäMMERUNG, from Old High German got, god. a-c all from Germanic *gudam, god.

Plus the etymology of dyeu, which is actually more closely the definition given in the Catholic Encyclopedia.

dyeu-
http://www.yourdictionary.com/ahd/roots/zzd04700.html

To shine (and in many derivatives, "sky, heaven, god"). Zero-grades *dyu- and *diw-.
Derivatives include Tuesday, divine, jovial, Jupiter, diary, dismal, journey, and psychedelic.

I. Basic form *dyeu-, Jove, the name of the god of the bright sky, head of the Indo-European pantheon.

1. JOVE, JOVIAL; SANGIOVESE, from Latin Iovis, Jupiter, or Iov-, stem of Iuppiter, Jupiter.

2. JULY, from Latin Ilius, "descended from Jupiter" (name of a Roman gens), from derivative *iou-il-.

3. Vocative compound *dyeu-pter, "O father Jove" (*pter-, father; see pter- in Indo-European roots). JUPITER, from Latin Iuppiter, Ipiter, head of the Roman pantheon.

4. DIONE, ZEUS; DIANTHUS, DIOSCURI, from Greek Zeus (genitive Dios), Zeus.

II. Noun *deiwos, god, formed by e-insertion to the zero- grade *diw- and suffixation of (accented) -o-.

a. TIU, TUESDAY, from Old English Tw (genitive Twes), god of war and sky;

b. TYR, from Old Norse Tr, sky god. Both a and b from Germanic *Twaz.

2. DEISM, DEITY, DEUS, JOSS; ADIEU, DEIFIC, from Latin deus, god.

3. DIVA, DIVINE, from Latin dvus, divine, god.

4. DIS, DIVES, from Latin dves, rich (< "fortunate, blessed, divine").

5. Suffixed zero-grade form *diw-yo-, heavenly. DIANA, from Latin Dina, moon goddess.

6. DEVI; DEODAR, DEVANAGARI, from Sanskrit deva, god, and deva-, divine.

7. ASMODEUS, from Avestan dava-, spirit, demon.

While Yahweh is not mentioned in the Catholic article, Zeus, Jupiter, Janus, Diana, "and other proper names of pagan deities", are clearly associated with the origin of the name/word" God".

Is it possible that the Indo-European languages contributed in some way to the name Yahweh? Listen to what the Catholic Encyclopedia admits….

"But the transition of the Sanscrit root, div—the Latin Jupiter-Jovis (Diovis), the Greek Zeus-Dios, the Indo- European Dyaus into the Hebrew form Jahveh has never been satisfactorily explained. Hitzig's contention (Vorlesungen über bibl. Theol., p. 38) that the Indo-Europeans furnished at least the idea contained in the name Jahveh, even if they did not originate the name itself, is without any value." [http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/08329a.htm]

So not only is Yahweh not connected to the any of the Indo-European offshoots, which would include "God", any contention that it is "is without any value".

Also, there is another glaring omission. It is not even mentioned that "God" [dg] is also a Hebrew Name!

dg GOD is from 'goode'- meaning to attack, invade, which is from gawdad-1) to penetrate,
cut, attack, invade 1a) (Qal) to penetrate, cut into 1b) (Hithpoel) 1b1)
to cut oneself 1b2) to gather in troops or crowds. [Gawd=God] …as in Baal-God, i.e. Lord God.

Thus [dg].GOD essentially means to Divide & Conquer, being associated with the spoils of war, or "fortune". The religion of the Lord God was big! Very Big!! So much so that Isaiah reprimands the entire Kingdom of Israel for leaving YAHWEH to follow GOD.

"But ye are they that forsake YAHWEH, that forget my holy mountain,
that prepare a table for GOD
…" [Isa 65:11]

That means GOD is the name of the mighty-one of this world. And still popular today!

2 Corinthians 4:3 But if our evangel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:4 In whom the god [deity] of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious evangel of Messiah, who is the image of Yahweh, should shine unto them.

Yahweh wants you to worship in Spirit AND in Truth. The question is…Who will you worship now?

As for you, O house of Israel, thus saith the Sovereign YAHWEH; Go ye, serve ye every one his idols, and hereafter also, if ye will not hearken unto me: but pollute ye my holy name no more with your gifts, and with your idols. [Ezek 20:39]

Let us turn to Almighty Yahweh with a pure heart and serve Him with one accord.

Praise Yahweh!
