Background Information, Course 101, Unadulterated Truth:

In many critical instances a student needs to have background knowledge to correctly handle the bible knowledge we will be presenting. By "background knowledge" we mean having a mental environment (or a mind set) already prepared with appropriate basic knowledge, ordained study tools and reasoning skills. We realize that students will be at different levels of comprehension, workable bible knowledge, and may have different learning abilities; so we try to say things in a way that all students can get some valuable learning from what is presented.  By saying "reasoning skills" we do not mean to say that you do no know how to think or reason, but we are referring to the "workable knowledge" hidden in bible text descriptions and the basic learning tools and guides given to us by our Heavenly Father.  

What we are saying is this: Yahweh has a way of thinking and reasoning that is very different from the normal human mental activities. That is why Yahweh said He would give us "a new heart" and a new mind:  and the way He has chosen for this to be done is through preaching (teaching) the Gospel of Yahshua the Messiah according to the scriptures (not the "Bible" as taught in churches and traditional bible classes).  The "Scriptures" are the Law of Moses and the Testimonies of the holy Prophets, not the writings of the apostles as we have them today--called the New Testament. 
To explain: remember that when the Messiah spoke of the "scriptures," what is today called "New Testament" had not yet been written by his disciples.  At that time when he was speaking, the disciples had not yet become apostles. Do you remember hearing or reading these verses?

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says Yahweh.
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.

 Isaiah 55:8-9, (NKJV)  


You study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me . . .

John 5:39 (NIV)


To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

Isaiah 8:20 (KJV)


He said to them, “This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms.” Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures.

Luke 24:44-45 (NIV)

Also think of these words:
The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
Psalm 19:1-3 (KJV)
The Creation is the first witness to the Creator's great power, knowledge and wisdom, and they are in place so that He has a continual display being  demonstrated for our experience and learning. And because of His Eternal greatness, He also fashioned for himself a Super Incorporeal Image (God or Elohim:  A spirit being in a very specific shape and form).  Then He made a physical man (Adam) in the likeness and image of Elohim.

He did this because He knew it was impossible for a human mind (a natural mind) to perceive or relate to Him in his Pure Spirit state of existence.  Remember, He created us.
So Elohim created man in His own image;
in the image of Elohim He created him;
male and female He created them.
Genesis 1:27, (NKJV)    




incorporeal (adjective)

  • not composed of matter; having no material existence : millions believe in a supreme but incorporeal being they call God.

Source:  New Oxford American Dictionary

By ecclesiastical tradition, the word or title "God sometimes GOD" has been used to speak of this incorporeal Spirit Being. This we know because of what is written in many Bible commentaries.  Also because of religious traditions, the leaders and teachers really know nothing about this Being, and this we know because they say there is no way to prove God exists.  If they had known and understood correctly the bible text, then they would have retained the original term and title, "ELOHIM."  

The only thing that is correctly expressed by most religious leaders and teachers is that this Spirit Being is the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth.  As we continue into our learning, you will come to know and understand why some
statements made here may seem harsh and might even be called sacrilegious or controversial statements.  It is necessary for us to re-examine and look honestly into these matters. And based on the intent presented in the Holy Bible, Truth can be validated and proven, because this is a life and death matter relating to our souls.

In the text as it is written for these classroom sessions, we will explain to you as much as possible to show why we present things as we do.  We will be open and candid, because our earnest desire is for you to correctly understand as much as possible.  If you have little knowledge of what is written in the bible, that is okay.  If you have much knowledge of things in the bible, that too is okay.  The way that Yahweh has presented His teaching (Doctrine) is so that no matter where you are on the scale of learning, what He says and How He says it, will be fitting and appropriate for His purpose in your learning.

But like the disciples of the Messiah, much of the knowledge about the Creator can not be correctly or spiritually understood until one's soul has been converted.  And that process is specified clearly and completely in the bible and that is why brother Saul wrote,

Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

(1 Corinthians 1:10 (KJV)



And the Holy Spirit through Isaiah gives us some insight about how the learning process works.  Please keep in mind we are showing you how Yahweh has set up this process of learning.

Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are  weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.  For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:  For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people.

(Isaiah 28:9-11, (KJV)



So we must remember, only Yahweh knows what He is doing, and only He (His Holy Spirit) is able to make us understand what He is saying and doing.  The only opposition to this process is Satan (the Adversary) and his demons, and he and his demons are extremely good at what they are doing. But I have witnessed and through experience learned for myself that the way of Yahweh is the the most effective way to learn and be protected from the wiles of Satan and his demons.


The Messiah told his disciples these words just before he was crucified,

 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. . . .

And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. . .

Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. . .

And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

(Matthew 24:4-25 KJV)


STOP!   STOP!   STOP!  Please do not run with what I have just said. Please! Carefully think about it.

Please, hear me out in this matter. The word, SATAN, means Adversary, and he is a spirit being; and ruler over all the opposing angels.  These opposing angels are called "Demons" which means "demoted angels," because they were cast out of the angelic kingdom:  they are also called unclean spirits.  Satan, who opposes the truth, is a "mystery" created and controlled by Yahweh Himself.

To emphasis the importance of this mystery, and at the same time the importance of the instruction in doctrine as mentioned in Isaiah 28, let's look at what Paul writes in his letter to the Hebrews in Rome.

For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.  For every one that uses milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.  But strong meat belongs to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

Hebrews 5:13-14


For now, the key thought here is, "to discern both good and evil." Why?  Because this thought is bringing to our attention that we must have a profound workable knowledge and spiritual understanding of the two mysteries according to Yahweh within the operation of His purpose:  the mystery of righteousness and the mystery of iniquity (unrighteousness). This applies to knowing what knowledge and wisdom is really dwelling in our hearts and operating in our minds about the Messiah, the son of Yahweh? This is the underlying thought to the whole letter that Paul wrote to the Hebrews, because many were being deceived.  

Now I must clarify how we will handle situations like this one.  Instead of stopping now to go into detail about these opposing spirits and the quote from Paul's letter, we will later provide lessons where these subjects and other supporting materials will be discussed, and the proof demonstrated. At times we will insert a box in the text to isolate an explanation of a particular subject, because of its unique importance at that place in the lesson (like we did for the definition of Incorporeal).  Also we will sometimes use a key word or phrase as a link to direct your attention to more information on a subject.


Our recommendation is that you read through a particular lesson, and do as little stopping or looking around as possible. We would like for you to first experience the flow and continuity of the subject matter as it is presented; and then go back and examine or investigate it's parts and pieces.  

Footnotes also will be presented, as we find suitable ways to make them effectively complement what is written and presented. This is a school and these are hands on lessons--so to speak, so you may need to adjust your thinking and attitude to fit the task.  Repetition is key to learning, that is why there is so much repetition happening in the universe. So, in like manner, the spirit of Yahweh must guide us in our learning process;, and he most definitely will, if we
do our part. So please be patience, tolerant, and willing to thoroughly follow along in each lesson as it is presented.

We hope you will remember that YOUR SOUL is at stake here, AND, MY SOUL TOO, because I or we are responsible to Yahweh for telling you the truth as it really is.  He judges the secretes of the heart and the intents of the soul. Therefore my efforts here are very deliberate and focused; as your learning is very dear to my heart.  So the critical thing is, "will you be willing and obedient - Isaiah 1:18."

Here is what Yahweh has said,

“ Come now, and let us reason together,”
      Says Yahweh,
      “ Though your sins are like scarlet,
      They shall be as white as snow;
      Though they are red like crimson,
      They shall be as wool.
       If you are willing and obedient,
      You shall eat the good of the land;
       But if you refuse and rebel,
      You shall be devoured by the sword”;
      For the mouth of Yahweh has spoken.

 Isaiah 1:18-20 (KJV)

Let the wicked forsake his way, 
      And the unrighteous man his thoughts; 
      Let him return to Yahweh, 
      And He will have mercy on him; 
      And to our Elohim, 
      For He will abundantly pardon. 
 “ For My thoughts are not your thoughts, 
      Nor are your ways My ways,” says Yahweh. 
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, 
      So are My ways higher than your ways, 
      And My thoughts than your thoughts. 

Isaiah 55:7-9 
 “ Whom will he teach knowledge? 
      And whom will he make to understand the message? 
      Those just weaned from milk? 
      Those just drawn from the breasts? 
For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept, 
      Line upon line, line upon line, 
      Here a little, there a little.” 
 For with stammering lips and another tongue 
      He will speak to this people, 

Isaiah 28:9-11


Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.

1 Thessalonians 5:21 (KJV)

1 Thessalonians 5:21 (KJV)


Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy,

but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves
to every man's conscience in the sight of God.

 2 Corinthians 4:1-3 (KJV)


Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman

that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

As is demonstrated in the process of gardening, at the proper season there is cultivation; then the planting of seeds at their appointed times; and with care and due patience a harvest (fruition) is the reward. This process is based on the universal principle of repetition: a death, burial and resurrection which is the core elementary equation by which the diverse expressions of life come into existence.  This core principle remains constant, as its bodily development manifests a great diversity of forms and behaviors as the plant steadily journeys on its path towards the fulfillment of its destiny. 
"Every seed bearing fruit after its kind" was declared before the beginning of time. Seeds vary in type and size, patterns of growth vary from species to species, but the core principle never changes. A threefold ever repeating reality was declared at the primal moment of the Eternal Expression for the manifested or Physical Creation`.  In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye; suddenly, Divine Unity (Divine Presence, Expression and Radiant Universe) stood firm. Tthe creation was accomplished in its fullness.

"For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast."
Psalms 33:8-9

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

I have declared the former things from the beginning; and they went forth out of my mouth, and I shewed them; I did them suddenly, and they came to pass.

For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

and I will give it him.
