Are you sure you are not following a false teacher?
Are you absolutely sure that you are not following a false teacher? How do you know that the teachings you are getting are sound biblical teachings? How do you know that you are not blind, being led by the blind. That is absolutely important for you, because:
Mat 15:14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
Are you sure you follow the right Messiah?
At the same time, a false teacher, false prophet and a false Messiah walk hand-in-hand. So, are you sure you follow the ONE TRUE Messiah?
Are you aware that there are many false Messiahs, but only one true Messiah? Have you ever evaluated your Messiah to see if he matches the Messiah of the Bible?
Mat 24:4 And Yah’shua answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
Mat 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Messiah; and shall deceive many.
Examine yourselves if you are on the right path! (2 Cor 13:5).

It has become glaringly obvious that either I follow a false Mashiach, or the vast majority of Christendom does. I have been labeled a false teacher, false prophet, anti-christ and other negative terms because what I teach is oftentimes alien to what Christianity teaches.
This became starkly evident after the posting of When does the Sabbath begin?
What is Popular is Not Necessarily Biblical Truth
To them, I am teaching what their religion does not teach so it must be false. One person said just that.
The problem is though, we are making a great error by equating popularity with truth. Big mistake. That is what prevailed at the time of Mashiach.
He came at a time when religion (Phariseeism and Saduceeism) were dominant. He came with truth and was rejected. These same institutions are alive and well today in the form of Rabbinical Judaism. It is also here spiritually in the form of modern Christianity.
Today, we will see how popular is not necessarily truth by looking at 10 beliefs that reveal false teachers and the true Messiah.
Of course, because there are over 40,000 Christian denominations worldwide, some attributes of the false Messiah will vary according to denomination. So some denominations will get some things right and not follow a false Messiah where certain beliefs are concerned. Yet they will still follow a false Mashiach where other things are concerned. There are many false Messiahs (Mat 24:4).
Bear in mind also that I have nothing against Christians. There are no doubt numerous well minded persons who want to serve YHWH with all their hearts, but get snared by the religion that leads them away from the word of truth. So it is not Christians that are problem; it is the Christian religion that is leading the innocent into a ditch. Please don’t take it personal and be offended.
So let’s begin:
10 Teachings of the Biblical Messiah That Reveal the True Messiah of the Bible and Show Up False Teachers
1) Messiah of the Bible said he did not come to destroy the law:
Mat 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
Mat 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
False teachers say no, no. That is not right! The law is done away with!
2) Messiah of the Bible says before we follow him, we must first deny ourselves, pick up stake and follow him:
Mat 16:24 Then said Yahshua unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his stake, and follow me.
The false teacher says: “all you have to do is believe. Nothing else. Just believe.”
You don’t have to walk in newness of life, nor abide in the Messiah. All you need to do is believe and you are saved.
3) Messiah of the Bible says he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
Mark 13:13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
The false teacher says, as long as you believe, you are saved. No endurance required.
4) Biblical Messiah says follow his commandments and his Father’s commandments.
John 15:10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.
Confirmation from Apostle Yahuchanon (John):
1Jn 2:6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
The false teacher says law is done away with. No commandment keeping, as it is impossible to keep all the laws, so best to keep none. The false teacher does not understand the writings of the Apostle Sha’ul when he spoke of the law written on our hearts.
5) Biblical Messiah says he came only for the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
Mat 15:24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
The false teacher excludes Israel and say the Messiah came for Christians,(even though there is no Christian gate into the kingdom – Rev 21:12)!
6) The Messiah of the Bible lived a humble life, as did his disciples and Apostles.
He even told the rich young man that if he wanted to be perfect he should sell what he had and give to the poor.
Mark 10:21 Then Yahshua beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.
Luke 9:58 And Yahshua said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.
The false teacher says the Father wants us to live prosperous in this life. They end up with the prosperity gospel, based on material possessions.
7) The true Messiah of the Bible says we should be perfect.
Mat 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
The false teachers say it makes no sense, we cannot be perfect, so please ignore Matthew 5:48.
8) The Messiah of the Bible told us to worship the Father and serve him only.
Mat 4:10 Then saith Yahshua unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship YHWH thy Elohiym, and him only shalt thou serve.
Joh_4:23-24 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. YHWH is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
False teachers say, no: we will worship the Messiah and serve him. And so, many worship “Jesus” instead of the Father.

9) The true biblical Mashiach said the Father was one:
Mar 12:29 And Yah’shua answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; YHWH our Elohiym is one YHWH:
False teachers say no, no! They are not one they are 3 in one (trinity). The Mashiach is co-equal with the Father and his Ruach (Spirit), creating a triune deity, which comes straight from paganism.
10) The biblical Mashiach says YHWH is his Elohiym.
Mat 27:46 And about the ninth hour Yahushua cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My Elohiym (God), my Elohiym, why hast thou forsaken me?
Joh_20:17 Yahshua saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my Elohiym (God), and your Elohiym.
The false teacher says no, the Messiah is Elohiym (God).

10 Teachings That Show Up False Teachers
Those were 10 teachings that show up false teachers who DIRECTLY contradict the Messiah. Yet somehow, they are not called false teachers in Christianity.
Now who does Christianity call a false teacher? None other than the one who teaches that we should follow what the Messiah of the Bible said. If you teach all the 10 preceding teachings, you will probably get a tongue lashing from Christians as being a false treacher or false prophet. Now isn’t this confusing? But…
1 Cor 14:33 For YHWH is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all assemblies of the saints.
The reason for the confusion, then? The majority of Christianity follows false teachers who herald a false Messiah. This false Messiah is not known to be false by unknowing Christians. This makes them follow a lie, so the truth appears to be the lie and the lie appears to be the truth.
Luke 6:39 And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?
Examine Yourself Whether You Be In The Faith
Examine yourself against these 10 teachings. Chances are, if you are in a Christian assembly, you will have been taught several of these. These are false teachings and not what the Messiah or his Apostles taught. It is another good news (gospel) which the Bible says is accursed:
Gal 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other good news (gospel) unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
You don’t want to be accursed. Some of the false teachings may seem simple, but they have far reaching implications. Error is error…lie is lie, and truth is truth. If we are led by the Holy Spirit, we MUST follow ALL TRUTH (John 16:13) and flee from the lies.
