The Apocrypha is full of historical mistakes, geographical mistakes, chronological, moral mistakes and calendar mistakes. יהוה said that His Word had been; "forever settled in heaven" (Psalm 119:89) and has given stern warning to any who would presume to supplement, delete, or distort any of the words of Scripture (Revelation 22:18,19; II Peter 3:16).
These books have big problems, they lacked apostolic or prophetic authorship; they didn’t claim to be the Word of יהוה; they contain unbiblical concepts such as prayer for the dead or have some serious historical inaccuracies like Enoch and Jubilees. These books were never authoritative, inspired, or authentically written by either the Jewish Prophets or the Apostles. In this short series we'll find out what books are Scripture according to Yahusha's reckoning and discover why 14 books were removed historically and determine whether that was right or wrong, a deception or a revelation.
The reason the 14 books were removed from the bible was because finally after the Reformation they woke to the league of Jesuits and Synagogue of Satan…
a league of demons to which the Jesuits and Synagogue had peddled for 1500 years…
Don’t try and convince me that the 14 book removal is THE conspiracy…THE conspiracy is that they WERE placed UNCHALLENGED within scripture for 1500 years…Liars, Lunatics and Demons.
John Hyrcanus, Alexander Jannaeus, Hyrcanus II, Salome Alexandra the founders of the Pharisees’ which birthed Rabbinic Judaism – the ugly step child of the Synagoge of Satan all supposedly had divine communion
The Enochian author had divine communion too
Mohammed was another who communed with angels and put words to pen & parchment
Westcott and Hort the bible translators enjoyed the communion of the saints, hanging with the spirits of the dead
Joseph Smith received divine revelation from an Angel
So did Charles Taze Russell the founder of the JW’s and the first editor of the Watchtower
All of them have one thing in common:
They were either:
communed with demons
told the truth
As far as ruling on #4 bear in mind truth is a person; I am the way, the truth and the life…and 1 Jn. 2:22 Who is the liar but he that denieth that Yahusha is the Messiah? This is the antichrist, even he that denieth the Father and the Son.
John Hyrcanus, Alexander Jannaeus, Hyrcanus II, Salome Alexandra-the founders of Pharisees’, The Enochian author, Mohammed, both Wescott and Hort, Joseph Smith, Charles Taze, all failed or the later adherents of their religion failed #4 so they are 1 of the 3, or a combination therein.
John Hyrcanus, Alexander Jannaeus, Hyrcanus II, Salome Alexandra all fell for #3 – communed with strange spirits – their father was the devil.
The Enochian author is #1 and #3
Charles Taze and the JW’s are #1 and #3
Mohammed was all 3
Wescott and Hort were #3.
Test all things and use the 1 – 4 test on all things…because…
2 Corin 11:14 And no marvel; for even Satan fashioneth himself into an angel of light.
The real Jews at the time of Yahusha didn’t recognize the Apocrypha as Scripture.
Josephus said; “we (the Jews) have 22 divine books.” This was what was recognized at the time of Yahusha.
22 books were Canonized/ruled and measured and accepted at the time of Yahusha 22
Josephus then breaks it down he says;
5 are Torah
13 cover the time from Moses to King Artaxerxes
4 contain hymns and precepts
The Count: The Minor Prophets (known as the 12) were counted as 1 book. That brings the number from 22 to 33.
1 and 2 Samuel are combined and called Samuel, that brings us up to 34.
Combined are 1st and 2nd Kings = 35.
Combined are 1st and 2nd Chrn = 36.
Ezra and Nehemiah were counted as one work = 37.
Ruth was joined to Judges = 38.
Lamentations attached to Jeremiah = 39.
The real Jews in the time of Yahusha had the same books in their bible as we have in our OT compilation today within the 66 count!
The Jews rejected any other writings after the time of King Artaxerxes which is the time of Malachi…their sages wrote: “After the latter prophets departed Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi the Holy Spirit departed from Israel.”
AS WE SHOULD REJECT ANY OTHER WRITINGS AFTER THIS TIME AS INSPIRED SCRIPTURE UNTIL WE GET THE 27 NEW COVENANT TEXTS…THIS IS WHAT YAHUSHA TAUGHT US:
Yahusha didn’t recognize the Apocrypha as scripture: Lk 24:44 These are my words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must needs be fulfilled, which are written in the law of Moses, and the prophets, and the psalms, concerning me.
This is exactly the same phrase that the Jewish writers used to refer to the Tanakh/OT which we just learnt referred to the law of Moses – 5 books, the prophets – 13 total books, and the Psalms 4 books = 22 books, equivalent to our 39 OT books today included in the 66 book bible.
Yahusha endorsed the Jews view on the count as being correct – He endorsed the 22/39 count – Yahuhsa endorsed the Cannon/measurement/rule of the Tanakh/OT which excludes the DSS, Enoch, Jubilees and all the other stuff men are peddling today!
Matt 23:35 that upon you (the Pharisees) may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of Abel the righteous unto the blood of Zachariah son of Barachiah, whom ye slew between the sanctuary and the altar.
Yahusha is again showing us the Cannon – His divine ruler, measurement of what is scripture: from the time of Abel = the Book of Beresheeth/Genesis to the slaying of Zachariah which was recorded in Chronicles; which chronologically is the time of Malachi as we have the 66 laid out today.
Yahusha recognized as Scripture from Genesis to the time of Malachi, which excludes the Apocrypha, the DSS, Enoch and Jubilees!
Plainly, the Apocrypha shows itself to be uninspired, it never claims inspiration. on the contrary its writers ask for “pardon if we seem to fail in interpretation and the writing of phrases.” (Ecclesiasticus prologue).
Beware of the league of demons – the Jesuits in league with the Synagogue of Satan to undermine the True Inspired Word of יהוה.
