Nehemia Gordon & Keith Johnson – Pope Benedict’s Theological Three Card Monte

Who has declared this from ancient time? Who has told it from that time? Have not I, the LORD? And there is no other God besides Me, A just God and a Savior; There is none besides Me. Look to Me, and be saved, All you ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other. I have sworn by Myself; The word has gone out of My mouth in righteousness, And shall not return, That to Me every knee shall bow, Every tongue shall take an oath. – Isaiah 45:21-23

    Enough of Politically correctness stop tip toeing around theological land mines and call it like it is! Paul was talking about “JESUS” or “YESHUA” not YEHOVAH! As a Rabbinical Jew he knew the name of the ONLY GOD YHVH, so if he was referring to YHVH he would have said so, but who did he mention??? JESUS! He was not referring to the meaning of YESHUA/YEHOSHUA that is BULL! That is nothing else but YOUR man made interpretation/opinion. That is not a fact so let’s not give those pinning their hopes on a false god and false messiah the idea to twist Paul’s writing to mean that he was not a Greek mythology influenced Jew and that he was speaking of YHVH, BULL! He was a false prophet, forget about calling Paul a prophet; he was never called a prophet, prophets are those who YEHOVAH talks to through dreams and visions (Num 12:6) And in the Christian book there is nothing about “Thus Yehovah said” or “Yehovah spoke to” The “New Testament” is nothing but Man’s word, NOT YEHOVAH’S WORD!
    There, I said it! I love you guys and despite my comments, great program just don’t like political correctness 🙂

  2. Eve says

    SgtKRG, I’d have to disagree with you on that last part about the New Testament not being YEHOVAH’S word. If you believe that YESHUA/Jesus is YEHOVAH’s Son, then every word that Jesus spoke, were the words of YEHOVAH. Especially when he was teaching the people. Although Paul certainly was NOT a prophet, he did relay the words that Jesus spoke.

  3. Mary says

    Still soaring from the amazing teaching, thank you Nehemia!

    In regards to Keith’s offer, still no free access as of 2:30 e/s time us. Still hoping.

    Thank you Jono for doing this, it was amazing.

  4. Dean Philpot says

    Thanks guys , you’ve enriched my life and I’m in debt to all of you. Just finished with Keith teaching , thank you again. The churches are afraid , they attack , they lie , they cover up. I’ve never seen anything like this. Name calling? Called a Judy-izer for using the name. Thank you for fighting to reveal his name. If I ever see income or blessings again I will faithfully tithe to your efforts until then I will thank you and those that support you and pray for your abundance . Be blessed as I have been blessed.

  5. Cynthia says

    Keith Johnson, do I understand this correctly? Every place in the Scriptures that says Lord should be replaced with Yahovah?

  6. SgtKRG says

    Very Respectfully agree to disagree!

  7. 2xtream says

    The Katolic Church will continue to froth at the mouth when the Name YHVH is spoken. As Satan hates the name above all others, including all his followers… The end days are so filled with Biblical events spoken of about 3000 years ago. Such an exciting time to be alive…

  8. Mark "FT" Pitrone says


    Paul was every bit as much a prophet as is anyone who teaches the truth of Yehovah. YOU and JONO and Keith and Nehemia are prophets of Yehovah. Every so often even THIS blind squirrel finds an acorn of truth to tell forth. I seriously doubt if any of us had been given a direct revelation of future events, but we have ALL shared Yehovah’s truth through exhortation and warning to his people. That is a prophet’s job.

  9. SgtKRG says

    Mark “FT” Pitrone
    With all do respect, I agree to disagree.
    We are used to call a prophet anyone who speaks Yehovah’s word, but the true concept of what is a prophet according to YHVH and not what man think is in the Tanack very clearly. HE chooses who will speak for HIM, not us and just because we speak the written word it doesn’t make me or anybody a prophet!
    Prophets=YHVH mouth piece as directed by HIM not anyone who can recite the scriptures!
    Also, he subtracted and added words to YHVH’s word and that is directly against TORAH, I am not speaking of paraphrasing but literally took away and added a lot of things that were not said by YHVH in the Tanack and he did it and thus changed the whole meaning of the true message, go find every so call old testament quote by anyone in the so call new testament and compare it with the old testament and if you can with the Hebrew and don’t just compare the verse but read the whole section, it might take a couple of chapters to get the full historical/linguistic and context of it! and if you don’t see it or don’t even want to do it, then again, I respectfully agree to disagree! May Yehovah open our eyes that we may see the wondrous things of HIS TORAH! Amen.

  10. Lynden says


    It sounds like you are finding what I ran into a while back. While comparing scriptures in the NT that are referenced from the Tanakh I found what I considered major issues. What I then found was that the writers of the NT were quoting the Septuagint and not the Masoretic Text (which didn’t exist then). Most versions of the Bible today are using an Old Testament based upon the Masoretic Text which has issues with the Septuagint. Given that the Septuagint is 1,000 years older than the Masoretic Text I prefer to do my studying using the older book. And the scriptures in the NT line up quite nicely with the Septuagint.

    If you want (IMHO) a great Bible, check out the Apostolic Bible Polyglot. You can download a PDF version of it free off of the website.

    If you believe the NT is not of YHVH then you might want to study the prophecies in it and see for yourself [Matt 24 & Rev]. Only the mouth piece of YHVH could predict these things with this accuracy. We can see prophecy playing out before our eyes.

    Nehemia, I will see you in Seattle this weekend! Thanks for coming to my neck of the woods.

    Como on, let’s not forget the historical facts. That church was instituted by Emperor Constatine. He ordained an imperial religion for all the Roaman empire at the Nicean counsel. He did it on the bvases of his faith in Mitraism. All roman emperor with military background were Mitra worshipers, so was Constatine,as his father was also a general, just as he fought under his father’s command in Britain.
    Remember, according to the present Roamn Cathalic church, Constatine submitted the doctrine of the sages voted on at the end of the counsel, to “Jesus” in heaven. So that nade him the very first pope.
    There is a lot of mistranslation of thet Byblos since the Nicean counsel. Also ,the Roman Cath,Church altered it in the XVI century, when Johannes Gutenberg started printing and publishing that book. The “Gospel of James” ,one of those 11 books elliminated by the pope had cleared up the entire pagan dogma about the young Hashidic rabbi (Jashua) .Since James named his mother’s father and mother, even his great grandfather.
    John 1;1- 6 is translated in reverse since the 5 century. But verse 18 does clear up any misconceptions.
    I think one needs to find out the trueth by going to the records of history.

  12. Liane MLB says

    The content is interesting and worth checking into further. However, you will never reach Catholics with this mocking sarcastic presentation. “To be perfect as I AM perfect” I understand relates to being “tamim” whole and mature. The introduction/presentation of the material lacks “maturity”. I am a Messianic who was raised Catholic and it grieves me to think of the people who will automatically hit the “delete” button because of the sound of ridicule. As Messianics are we not called to a higher standard than this?

    “You shall not take the name of YHWH your God in vain, for YHWH will not leave him unpunished who takes His name in vain.” –Exodus 20:7

    ‘You shall not take the name of YHWH your God in vain, for YHWH will not leave him unpunished who takes His name in vain.” –Deuteronomy 5:11

    God, furthermore, said to Moses, “Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, ‘YHWH, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.’ This is My name forever, and this is My memorial-name to all generations. –Exodus 3:15

    ‘But the prophet who speaks a word presumptuously in My name which I have not commanded him to speak, or which he speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet shall die.’ –Deuteronomy 18:20

    Lord / Adonnai is a title, not a name.
    “The ONE Who Causes To Exist” defends His own Name.

    “Then if they will really learn the ways of My people, to swear by My name, ‘As YHWH lives,’ even as they taught My people to swear by Baal, they will be built up in the midst of My people.” –Jeremiah 12:15

    “Nevertheless hear the word of YHWH, all Judah who are living in the land of Egypt, ‘Behold, I have sworn by My great name,’ says YHWH, ‘never shall My name be invoked again by the mouth of any man of Judah in all the land of Egypt, saying, “As the Lord YHWH lives.” –Jeremiah 44:26

    “I will make it go forth,” declares YHWH of hosts, “and it will enter the house of the thief and the house of the one who swears falsely by My name; and it will spend the night within that house and consume it with its timber and stones.” –Zechariah 5:4

    Yes, “YHWH Saves.” No, Yahshua is not YHWH.
    The Younger Testament is a mess. The Original Language is no longer there in any reliable form. From what I understand, the various Hebrew Matityahus don’t all agree perfectly. All we really have are contortions and “translations” from the language of the people who repeatedly attempted genocide on Yahshua’s people. Hardly a *reliable source.
    I’m up for looking at ancient documents as they surface. So far, only the TaNaK withstands the acid test. it would be a real bummer for the money gods that rely on Christmas, Easter, and Halloween if Christendom suddenly woke up and realized the house of cards is falling.
    Oh, yeah… the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is in the business of breaking the head and hands off of the gods of prosperity, isn’t He?!

    But when they arose early the next morning, behold, Dagon had fallen on his face to the ground before the ark of YHWH. And the head of Dagon and both the palms of his hands were cut off on the threshold; only the trunk of Dagon was left to him. –I Samuel 5:4

  14. Steve Houston says

    No ministers of Satan will tell me I can not use the name of Yəhôvâ~!
    The Orthodox Roman Catholic ….. is the poisonous philosophy of Satan himself who wants no one to know the truth or to repent of the evil with it’s the blatant Black Magick Satanism

  15. Sue says

    There is one major deception that has corrupted both Christianity and Judaism. The Old Testament “God” (YHWH) is NOT the same being as The Almighty Father that Jesus/Yahushua worshipped, did the will of and taught us to pray to. They are COMPLETELY in accordance. This “angel” wanted to be worshipped as God. The same M.O., complete with fire, signs and wonders was used with another big religion as well. As Jesus said, no man has EVER seen The Father AND by their fruits you shall know them. There is only one being that kills, steals and destroys. The scriptures are wonderful because they DO tell you what happened, it’s just not the way we think or have interpreted it. I can promise you this, Jesus got it completely right, he would NEVER tell anyone to slaughter a village, rape the women and smash the babies heads on the rocks and take their belongings. It’s very obvious when you use Jesus as your yardstick for right and wrong.

    This supposed god DID give us the Commandments which we are to follow and then led the Israelites into breaking them. He followed everything to the literal letter of the law and NOT the spirit of the law. The wages of sin is death, yes, but Jesus meant the wages of sin is not having everlasting life, not stoning someone to death. He led the Israelites to a physical Promised Land, Jesus leads us to his Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven when he returns. There is example after example, all you have to do is open your eyes.

    Christianity tries hard to reconcile the unreconcilable, sometimes claiming the “I Will Be – I Am” being of the Torah who also said, I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour (Isaiah 43:11) can somehow can be Jesus. No way, Jose. If it walks like a duck…

    There is one other option though. That YHWH actually IS God, but it’s more a vocabulary issue. We do know that Satan tempted Jesus with all the kingdoms of the world. Jesus NEVER debated his (temporary) authority. But there’s no way that this being is the same one as The Father.

  16. Trent says

    Sue, i hope im not out of place by saying you seem to be in a struggle coming to grips with how our creator endorsed behaviour in ancient times. Ever heard of the saying: when in rome…?
    It was a tough life and our creator didnt endorse the fairy attitude that we see today, otherwise His chosen people would have been slaughtered at every turn.
    I heard the same verse quoted (dash the babies heads on the rocks) on ABC Q&A with a live audience when a guest used this verse alone to establish the type of “person” our creator is. This argument was then used to congratulate and applaud a gay catholic preacher who was inferring jesus was gay also with huge applause from the audience and then claimed we now have a different god of love and the god of the OT was finished. It was sickening to watch what sort of society we are becoming.
    A christian preacher also on the Q&A panel was useless and couldnt counter these claims with any semblance of authority.
    I hope you continue to dig for answers, because frankly i dont think your remotely close with this hypotheseis.
    I note you didnt quote a verse that would support this tangled idea, rather suggesting to us to open our eyes. Id rather be blind and read the OT in braille than have eye sight and read only the NT. Because we all know how duped the NT only crowd are.

    Oh and Nemhenia, if you read these posts, I was watching the open door series again last week on the teaching of the Aaronic blessing. I was shocked and amazed when i got up out of my chair when finished. For the previous 6-8 weeks, everytime (every single time) i sat or lifted myself out of a chair, the pain in my lower back would make me utter bad words in pain. After the teaching i lifted myself up fully anticipating the pain but there was none. During the course of that teaching i also paused to add the vowel points to our creators name which i had written 2 years earlier on a A4 sheet of paper which resides atop of my PC tower at arms length. That was about 2 weeks ago and still there is no back pain. Thankyou for that teaching and i can assure you, i do feel blessed!
    Praise Yehovah!

  17. Ester says

    Most of the time, we say mistranslation, translation agenda, misinterpretation, and manipulation of YHWH’s Word, ‘sleight of hand’ is very appropriate as one need to be so attentive, sharp, alert or discerning to catch what’s going on.
    Applause to Nehemia!
    Ought to be an eye-opener to Christianity, as to the name ‘Jesus’, when in Hebrew it means Salvation, and clearly not a foreign Greek meaningless name. Also, in most languages, Messiah’s name is Yeshua, and not “jesus”. Names can not be changed for whatever reason, in whatever language, it has to follow as close a pronunciation as possible, and always recognizable, e.g. Peking (Cantonese dialect), in Mandarin.
    Right, Nehemia? 🙂

    Good program, more on this? Clears a lot of fog in many folks.

  18. Linda says

    Shabbat Shalom Jono,

    Thank you for bringing Nehemia and Keith on to discuss this very important topic. One thing keeps coming to mind these days as I hear discussions of “the Name” as it pertains to Messiah and that is the concept of a “power of attorney”.

    Could not we say that the Torah is the Father’s power of attorney in which the Son, “Yah saves” came to live and abide by as an example of how we are to live and abide by? As every company has a set of by-laws that the CEO who holds the company’s power of attorney must abide by, did not this concept come directly from the relationship between the Father and the Son? The Father who created the company so to speak and the Son, the Word of God, who goes forth to make sure all who live and work within that which the Father created, are made aware of these by-laws in order to live by them as the Son lives by them? How many times have we heard, “shall live by” in both the Tanakh and the NT in regards to the by-laws of God’s company that is His creation?

    Yeshua said that all that is the Father’s was given to Him. Yeshua said that He does and speaks nothing but that which the Father gives Him to do & speak. So is not Yeshua telling us that He is the CEO appointed by the Father to practice that which the Father gave Him, in order to teach all mankind about the wonderful ways that are the by-laws of the Father’s company that is the Father’s creation?

    The Son came proclaiming the Father, in name, thought, word and deed. He sought no glory of His own or reward of His own as all that the Son was, is and will be has been before the Father’s company called creation was even realized in the physical in which we live today. The Son is merely the example of how a good employee, the CEO appointed by the Father, guards and protects all that the Father gave to Him to oversee in order that the Father’s company is not destroyed. The Son came to restore the Father’s good name, in order that the Father’s good name is not brought to naught thereby bringing the Son’s name to naught.

    Well, this is just my take on the subject. Until the world realizes just who is the One who actually holds the reigns of all those whom He appointed, the lie that the Son came and changed that which the Father gave Him to protect in order to teach others to protect and teach as the Son protects and teaches, the destroyer of the world will continue to move & work swiftly to destroy the Father’s company that is all of creation. We see this every day. People in authority break laws and yet are not held accountable but rather are rewarded for breaking the laws.

    What an upside down and twisted world we live in. I truly believe we are living in “the end days” and that our generation will see His authority re-established and there is going to be a whole lot of weeping and nashing of teeth by those who rejected His truth in order to love and cling to the lies of the pretender ceo that began all the corruption and through his lies, continues bringing forth much destruction of the Father’s company called creation.

  19. Nancy says

    SgtKRG, just want to clarify that Yeshua/Jesus did claim that His words were from YHVH. Check out John 12:49-50 “For I have not spoken on My own authority, but the Father Who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak. And I know that His command is everlasting life. Therefore, whatever I speak, just as the Father as told me, so I speak.”

    Best one yet! Thanks guys!

    Keith, Nehemiah, and Jono,

    I am looking forward to watching the offer of the 12 part teaching, His Hallowed Name Revealed.


  22. Ida Blom says

    I have seen so many of these obfuscations!! Finally
    It will be exposed for the damage is has done. But
    Mostly finally the honor will be placed where it
    Belongs – with Yehovah.
