In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Before creation there was only the one true God who calls Himself “Yahavah”, meaning “God is” or “the Giving One is” and Elohiym, meaning “the God of all gods”. Altogether “Yahavah” means “God is the God of all gods”. There are no other gods beside Him.
“In the beginning was the Word (of God), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. This Word was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him (God, the Word), and without Him was not made anything that was made. In Him was life; and the life was the light of people.” – writing of Yohan called “gospel”
“God is” and “He is the creator of all things and all people”.
After all things were made by the one true God, people fell away from the one true God and continuously, “changed the glory of the incorruptible God into images made like to corruptible man, and to brids, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things.” Idolatry abounded, and out of the worship of “gods who were no gods”, came forth mythologies of all sorts.
But God had a witness in the earth in all generations. Abel was a witness. Seth was a witness and all those of the seed of promise to Avraham. Yahavah preached the gospel unto Avraham saying, “in thy Seed all the nations shall be blessed”, and the Seed is one and the Seed is the Mashiach. God would call Himself the God of Avraham, Isaac and Yacob. Yacob’s name was changed to Yisrael and God would then declare Himself through a people as the “God of Yisrael”. A people brought forth to accomplish the eternal purpose in Yeshua ha Mashiach, called the one true gospel – good news, words of life. And the one true gospel is the Mashiach, Yeshua of Nazareth, died for our sins according to the Old Testament, He was buried and He rose again the third day according to the Old Testament. “He came to His own and His own received Him not”-God purposed this through a people called by His name – Yisrael! For Yisrael is a name of God!
And so from the time shortly after the creation of the universe by Yahavah Elohiym there have been two witnesses in the earth – the witness of the one true God, the few, and of idolatry, of the multitude of people. This is the purpose of God. Of the true witnesses were the prophets of Yisrael inspired by God to write the holy writings (the Old Testament), the foreshadowing of things to come concerning the Mashiach. Melchizedek was a true witness. There are always true witnesses.
Out of this witness called idolatry ( in the flesh called the greater witness, in the Spirit, the lesser) came forth the mythology of the Greeks. In this mythology there were various stories to explain the origins of the universe and man with the personification of inanimate things such as earth and sky. The one true God was removed from the thought and explanations of people. This is idolatry – worshipping stone and wood and the things people make out of these. And these things have no breath or life. They are dumb and stupid! Out of Greek mythology came forth Greek philosophy, which was a reaction to Greek mythology, a new way of explaining things from the foundation and the perspective of the myths of idolatry. This philosophy would broaden its attention from an explanation of creation and things of creation, to how people should live their life without the one true God. This is called ethics. The ideal for living one’s life came to be in Greek philosophy as living “the good life”. In the beginning Greek philosophy and science were joined together. For example, at this time, predictions of solar eclipses, were made by the philosophers. Philosophy consisted of the tangible and the intangible, the seen and the unseen. Eventually philosophy and science would go their own course and separate as we know it today. Philosophy’s realm would be the unseen, while science realm would be the seen. The beginning of the separation of science and philosophy occurred long ago, perhaps 2500 years.
2000 years ago there came the greatest Witness of the one true God in the person of Yeshua ha Mashiach. God Himself became the Witness for Himself as all the prophets witnessed. “If you have see Me, You see the Father”…”I and the Father am one.” This great witness of Yeshua ha Mashiach would put down the witness of idolatry at the first. But as there were a few who were witnesses prior to the Mashiach, there would continue to be few, a remnant, who would witness to the truth, the one true God. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Yeshua ha Mashiach.” But people were deceived and began to think that it was no more the few, but the many who would be witnesses in the earth. And thus, the many would lay claim that they, the many, were the witnesses of truth in the earth. It would be these who would issue the edict by law that all people must be Christians. It would be these who would revive Greek philosophy that came forth from idolatry and take it for their own, even to this day. And thus, in the present time whether philosophy or science, it is one and the same, it is derived from idolatry. For science and philosophy are not of the one true God, quite the contrary they deny the one true God. Be not deceived! Beware of people! Science and philosophy are not of faith, they are of unbelief. The one true gospel is of faith, and grace and the true Spirit of God.
“Beware let any person spoil you through philosophy and vaint deceit, after the traditions of people, after the elements of the world and not after the Mashiach. For in Him (the Mashiach) dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. And you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power. In Whom (the Mashiach) also you are circumcised with the circumcision not made with hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of the Mashiach; buried with Him in baptism, wherein also you are risen with Him through the faith of the operation of God, who raised Him from the dead. And you being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, has He quickened together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to use, and took it out of the way, nailing it to His cross, and having spoiled principalities and powers, He made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it –the cross.” – Letter to the Collossians
I mark this writing by the one true gospel and the one true gospel is, Yeshua ha Mashiach’s died for our sins according to the Tanach, He was buried and He rose again the third day according to the Old Testament. (Luke 24, 1 Cor 15:1-6)
