CHRISTIAN MEDIA RESEARCH - Exposing apostacy and more within the Christian church


The House Of Yahweh

he House Of Yahweh Newsletter is published by one of the many so-called "sacred name" cults. This one comes from a group of the same name run by one Yisrayl Hawkins, a leader that has unabashedly portrayed himself as a prophet. How curious then that he issues prophetic statements that don't line up with the scriptures!

 For instance, in the February 2005 letter, he coolly informs us that "the prophets in your Bible spoke of a seven year peace plan that they said would destroy many...." (HYN, Feb 2005). Although he doesn't footnote the scriptural authority for this statement, he is obviously utilizing the same old hackneyed 7-year treaty nonsense from the Rapture Cult - the same mainstream group he claims is part of the apostate church. How ironic that Rapturists comprise a portion of what he refers to as "godworshipers" - a term of derision since he thinks the English word "god" refers to demons; yet he continues to espouse basic staples of their false doctrine. 

 Yisrayl Hawkins goes on to tell us not only is there "a 7 year peace plan....we are in the last three and one-half years of this plan....." (HYN, Feb 2005). If we're now in the last half of the so-called 7-year treaty, it would have to have been signed in the last few years; but since his letter didn't give me the date of the historic event, I had to go to this cult's website to get the details:

"Daniyl's prophecies have come to pass, except for the destruction which will end the Seven Year Plan of Peace. This will be the worst time of trouble ever for all nations. We only have a few months left of this Seven Year Plan. It was signed September 13, 1993 and went into effect October 13, 1993. The plan has been inactive..."

 When I was in school I did have some problems with math, but the last time I looked, this was 2005 - so evidently my calculator is deficient as well, because we're now 11 � years into Yisrayl Hawkin's 7 year treaty!

 The so-called 7 year treaty is grotesquely fastened upon the classic verse of Daniel (9:27), which  never mentions a treaty, never mentions the Antichrist, and never mentions what Hawkins brazenly states is "42 moons of war" (HYN, Feb 2005, pg 1). However, if Yisrayl Hawkins feels the need for textual support, he conveniently utilizes his own version of the scriptures marketed as The Book Of Yahweh.

 In that same newsletter, we get a taste of Hawkin's translational abomination. "Overseer" Yisrayl Hawkins, who is reputed to believe he is one of the two witnesses, renders Revelation 11:3 as "And I will give to My two Witnesses to perform their prophetic offices, and they will foretell events about the three and one-half years, those cast about with darkness." (HYN, Feb 2005, pg 1).

 The venerable King James Version has it as "And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand, two hundred, and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth."

 This hideous twisting of the Word of God in Hawkin's reprobate "sacred name" Bible takes outrageous liberties with the underlying manuscripts and very definitely removes certain words while adding others - a spiritual offense even young believers know better than to perpetrate. For instance, the manuscripts actually use the Greek word for days - as opposed to Hawkin's more abbreviated "three and one-half years."

 As we believe the days will be literally "shortened" by one third as both Jesus and John prophesied (Matthew 24:22, Revelation 8:12), 1,260 days may very well turn out to be a completely different period of time than 3 ½ years. But the textual abuse doesn't stop there, for Hawkins goes on to change the very act performed by the Two Witnesses from the original "they shall prophesy" to "they will foretell events."

 The Word of God teaches us that to prophesy is not exclusively said to make predictions - it is broader than that. Indeed, this same Revelation tells us "the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy" - in effect saying that testifying of the majesty and glory of Christ is also to prophesy. (see also Acts 15:32 where exhortation is linked to the gift of prophecy).

 However, the most obscene item in his apostate translation is in the very end of the same verse where Hawkins just inserts a phrase that does not appear in the manuscripts at all. The Textus Receptus (the long established body of about 5,000 manuscripts that validate the KJV as the Word of God) renders the last phrase of this same verse with a description of the Two Witnesses by plainly stating that during the period of their prophesying they will be "clothed in sackcloth."

 Hawkins's "sacred-name" abomination makes this completely incoherent by translating that the Two Witnesses will "foretell" events about the three and one-half years, those cast about with darkness." We might ask what, pray tell, does "those cast about with darkness" have to do with being "clothed in sackcloth?

 The answer is apparently in the newsletter itself where we're treated to a photo of this creep in a suit and tie clutching his corrupt "Bible." Since Hawkins sees himself as one of the witnesses, maybe he just changed that verse so he won't have to wear any uncomfortable sackcloth in order to convince the suckers that buy into his particular brand of bovine scatology (II Timothy 3:5).
