September 2007 - When Jah says that
mankind has changed worship of Creator into
worship of creation, did He also refer to
the "bible-believing" Christians?
In the first verse of the Gospel
according to John we can read: "In the
beginning was the Word, and the Word was
with JAH, and the Word was JAH".
Reading on just a little bit more will
reveal without the shadow of a doubt, that
John refers to Yesus Kristos when he speaks
about the "Word of Jah".
It's a deep, profound teaching that John
gives there. A teaching of which the
implications unfortunately have gone lost to
a large portion within what is generally
kown as "Christianity" For they
will identify the Word of Jah as... The
People can debate without end about
topics, putting scripture against scripture
in attempts to "convince" their
opponents. People will "expose"
"false teachings" just by quoting
a few Bible scriptures. People will even
study the Bible in order to get themselves
some name and fame and power over others!
Never mind the fact, that there is no
original manuscript left. Never mind the
fact, that the (per)versions contradict each
other and themselves. Never mind the fact,
that the canon itself isn't even mentioned
in the Bible and nobody can really explain
just why "the Bible" is
People who criticize
"Christianity" will often refer to
the fact that with a little bit of
intelligence, you can make the Bible say
just about anything you want the Bible to
say. And it's true, especially when you
realize that there are countless of (per)versions
that will help everyone to read what they
want to read.
But even if we would have the original
scrolls, it would not better. The apostle
Petrus wrote, that people were twisting the
writings of Paulus as well as the other
scriptures, and he was referring to the
original manuscripts there.
We are give a wonderful example within
this very same scripture. We all know about
the Pharisees, how they knew their Bibles
inside-out and how they loved to use that
knowledge to get power over other people.
How they even fooled themselves!
When Yesus faced the Pharisees, he told
them: "You study the scriptures because
you think there is eternal life in there,
and you don't recognize Me and don't want to
come to Me" (John 5:38).
We see this very same mentality within
what is commonly known as Christianity. It
can be recognized in the phrase: "The
Word Of God says...", followed by some
quote. A quote from a (per)version,
that is. For the original manuscripts are
We see, how many try to put Jah in a
book, subsequently study that book, and
somehow think that this the key to eternal
life, the key to God, yes... God!
We see, that when John writes how the
Word is Jah and became flesh, many will de
facto believe that this is about the
Bible rather than about Yesus Kristos
Now, why is that?
Why do people need a book, even if it is
a translation or (per)version of a
manuscript, of which the originals have long
been lost? Why do people... need something
in this creation and treat it as if this is
Asking the question, is answering it.
Oh yes, we all know about the critique
from the "bible-believing
Christians" about the believe of many
of my Rasta brothers and sisters that the
Ethiopian Emperor is JAH. But they
themselves believe in a book and call it the
Word of Jah, Which we know is JAH Himself!
So why do people need that book? Why do
people use that book as their Gateway to
God? Yes: as God?
Obviously, it has everything to do that
we are -in our natural state- unable to
reach Jah. Since the fall, we are cut from
direct contact with our Creator and all we
had left was our place within Creation.
Still, the Creator maintains His
Creation. He reveals Himself through
Creation too. Jah even steps in His Creation
and shows Himself to us many times.
He does so, through the Bible and through
the Ethiopian emperor. He does so, by
revealing Himself all over creation!
In the last verse of the gospel according
to John, the apostle states that Yesus did
so many things that if they would all have
to be described, the world itself could not
contain the books.
So we know, yes, the Creator has really
done a lot of things to reveal Himself. But
as soon as Jah reveals Himself, a particular
law of nature comes into action.
It is the law of decay, that came into
place when Adam and Eve ate from the fruit
and became initiated in the mystery of
iniquity. It is the law that dictates, how
nothing in this creation is eternal. How
nothing in this creation can last forever.
How nothing in this creation is perfect.
It is, if you will: the law of sin.
It is, if you will: to have the knowledge
of good and evil, which means nothing else
than to have only a partial knowledge of
good rather to have something on top of
"knowledge of good". (SEE:
"TO KNOW GOOD AND EVIL")
Our partial (dis)ability to "see
good", which obviously means nothing
else but to "see JAH", requires us
to initially be confronted with some thing
in creation which will refer us to the
Creator Himself, Yesus Kristos!
We need something in this creation to
show us The Way.
We need a witness.
We need a tangible witness.
We need a tangible witness in this
creation in order to find the Way to the
Creator. And as a matter of fact, we have a
multitude of witnesses around us. From the
Bible to the Ethiopian Emperor, from Spirit
People to -in fact- the whole of Creation
And this is exactly where many, many
people stop. They hear the voice of the
Creator clearly through the mouths of His
many witnesses. Tangible, audible, visible,
you name it. There is no speech or language
where His voice is not heard!
Creation itself is a witness. Creation
itself is a messenger.
But in some sick variation on the theme,
many people are tricked and believe that the
messenger is in fact the sender. Many people
are tricked into believing, how creation is
in fact the Creator.
The mere fact that we need something in
this creation to point us out to the
Creator, has been transformed by the forces
of evil into the very worship of that
Our partial disability to see Jah, to
"know good", makes us worship that
which we do see as if it is JAH!
It makes us worship creation rather than
the Creator, even if that creation itself is
conscious witness of the Creator and points
out to the fact that it is only a witness.
For example: The Bible.
For example: The Ethiopian Emperor
But none of these witnesses are perfect,
none of these witnesses in themselves are
able to bring us in contact with the
None of these witnesses ARE Jah!
They can only... show us the Way!
So, then, what is that Way?
Obviously, here we have another question
which has the Answer contained in itself.
Obviously, there can not be a Way to the
Creator if this Way is not the Creator
Obviously, that Way is Yesus Kristos, JAH
manifested in the Flesh.
HE is perfect. HE is without sin. Whether
you know it or not, Yesus Kristos is (the
Way to) JAH. Whether you know it or not, you
can only be in contact with your Creator
though (the Door, that Door Which is) the
Let us therefore know, that we live in a
fallen creation. We need a witness, Jah uses
witness to speak through, but a witness is a
The Bible is such a witness. It's an
imperfect witness, and can also be used to
teach false doctrines. It can be used, to
manipulate people and is used by Babylon
System as the ultimate propaganda tool in
what is called the "Judeo-Christian
The Bible points out to Yesus Kristos, quite
specific. The Bible says of itself, that
there is no eternal life in it. The Bible
witnesses of itself, that it contains only a
description of an aspect of what Yesus
Kristos really is doing.
It's not the Bible, that teaches me
anything. It's not the Bible, that saved me.
It's not the Bible that dictates what is
true or not. This is all reserved for the
Word of God Himself, and:
The Bible... is not the Word of God!
Yesus Kristos is the Word Of God!
This simple truth opens up the whole
Bible, all of a sudden.
When you read stuff like: "Your Word
Is A Lamp For My Foot", this really
means "Yesus Is The Light".
When you read stuff like: "The Word
Of God Is A Two-Edged Sword", and
"The Sword Of The Spirit Is The Word Of
God", this really means that
"Yesus is a two-edged Sword", that
"Yesus is the Sword of the
Yes, some people really claim that the
Sword of the Spirit is the bible. They claim
that the Bible is a two-edged sword and a
light for our foot. They really think that
the devil is afraid for a few Bible
Scriptures and that reading the Bible will
give us eternal life.
Therefore, when you would use the words
"Word of God" and
"Bible" interchangeably, I would
say that my Bible is JAH.
It is JAH, Who teaches me. He teaches me
through the Bible, through creation, through
revelation and experience. It is JAH, Yesus
Kristos, Who is my Weapon. It is JAH, Yesus
Kristos, Who is the Lamp for my foot. It is
JAH, Yesus Kristos, Whose teachings are
written in my heart.
One Love, Give Thanks,
