(Jesus the Messiah)
Welcome to The Letters of Faith
Letters of Faith have been in use for 24 years at the
“lettersoffaith.com” website as a teaching and discipleship training
instrument. Each letter is
topically driven, and intended to aid all who desire a deeper
understanding of Scripture, as well as a closer walk with our Heavenly
Father. In their 24 years
online, the traffic data compiled at the web servers indicate that The
Letters of Faith have been touched by over one million visitors.
each letter is intended to help every seeker and/or disciple gain the
maximum knowledge possible, in as short a time as possible.
We all learn at our own pace, which makes this work even more
helpful, because you set your pace. The
subject matter is here at your disposal, and it is available whenever (and
now, almost wherever) you want or need…
vital significance to this work is the connectivity between The Letters of
Faith and The Exalted Name Bible™. Names
and words are used throughout these writings, which will be unfamiliar to
many readers. Please do not
allow that lack of familiarity to deter you.
You will only find quotations from The Exalted Name Bible™ used within The Letters of
Faith though, and you need to know that fact up front.
(That is the primary change from the original series of Letters).
It is my fervent belief, however, that the proper use of The
Exalted Name will have a profound impact on the lives of every
disciple of YEHOSHUA the Messiah – and
22 explains in detail the full discovery of The Exalted Name, as well as
every name, title and nuance with regard to all of the unique expressions
used throughout The Letters of Faith and The Exalted
Although letter 22 was written much later in this ministry, it is
probably prudent to begin your reading at that point, and then return to
letter 1. You must know the
words used throughout these writings, otherwise everything will sound
foreign and out of place. Primarily,
for your information, we are discussing eight basic names that deserve our
consideration. I believe you
will find the time spent in discovery within Letter 22 to be worthwhile.
The eight names and words are:
The abbreviated version of The Exalted Name!
Singular rendition of the word we interpret as “God”.
Plural rendition of the word we interpret as “God”.
The only correct and full Name of the Messiah. (The
name JESUS is a transliterated - "sounds like" name,
but is NOT His proper name).
And the title, Christ.
In relationship to lord, and finally,
As the word should probably be used.
think too, that you should read my, “Author Biography” page, located
at the very end of these writings, because you must know who I am and
where I have come from, in order to gain any confidence in the
presentations that I am making to you.
additional significance is the fact that collectively, The Letters of
Faith offer an uncompromising defense for the inerrant truth of Scripture,
while also presenting a prophetic message for twenty-first century
society. Throughout these
pages you will discover a firm preservation of Scripture, as well as the
full presentation of the One True Creator, and the manner in which He
created and deals with His creation. The
very heart of these teachings is based upon the fact that Biblical
absolutes exist, and the whole of Scripture is the foundation of life: YEHOSHUA ha Mashiach Himself being the cornerstone.
For that reason, wherever and whenever possible, Scriptural
absolutes will be shown and proven, making The Letters of Faith a rare
read in today's relativistic, humanistic and synthetic age.
Every effort will be made to present the fullness of Elohim's truth
to you – in His love – and every relevant Scriptural reference will be
provided to support every conclusion drawn.
writings are intended for anyone seeking the truth about God (Elohim), but
I warning my visitors from the outset, if you are merely looking to have
your senses tickled, you will be wasting your time here.
Every ounce of patience is expended in a sincere attempt to
convince the student of the truth of Scripture; to convince you that we
serve The One True Living Elohim. I
will not, however, compromise this teaching to satisfy any specific
religious bent, nor will I bend Scripture to accommodate society's
thoughts, whims or fashionable trends.
Humanity, including much of the supposed church, has abandoned the
fullness of the truth found within Scripture, and it is my sole intent to
restore the fullness of His teaching in the hearts of His Children.
To the unsaved and unknowing I offer these pages in the love of YEHOSHUA, praying for your enlightenment.
I will not, however, compromise the truth of His Word in order to
accommodate humanity's interpretation of 'love', nor will I compromise the
fullness of Elohim's love in order to accommodate humanity's false
interpretation and implementation of His Word.
The fullness of Scripture stands behind these teachings, so if you
believe an error exists within these pages – prove it by and through His
Word! I am an obedient student
Letters are written in an extremely personal format.
This is mostly attributable to the fact that they truly did
originate as literal letters to beloved friends or seekers of the truth.
Yet, even though the private information has been removed from
these missives, the primary objective of helping the lost in their search
for the truth, and of training the disciples once the truth has been
found, has not been lost. Due
to the progressive nature of these writings, therefore, you will discover
a natural transformation developing in the format and content of The
Letters. This transformation
presents itself naturally as The Letters proceed from the Seeker level to
the Disciple level.
you will quickly see, this progression of thought causes The Letters to be
presented in two tiers:
first ten letters are addressed to, “Dear Seeker”, and are
foundational in their content. These
letters are useful to anyone who does not know God (Elohim), but who is
seeking to know about Him and about His Word.
While every search for the truth of Scripture is laden with
questions, The Letters attempt to answer those questions, while also
offering a tremendous amount of food for further thought and growth.
Additionally, I have sincerely attempted to offer a nonjudgmental
approach toward the personal search for knowledge of YEHOSHUA ha Mashiach (Jesus the Messiah).
Not only am I an obedient student, I am a sinner as well, and as
such, I am in no condition to judge anyone.
second series of letters are addressed to, Dear Disciple, and these latter
writings represent a natural progression of communication between the
teacher and those who have found YEHOSHUA ha Mashiach as their personal Messiah, Master and
King. While discipleship
training is the primary thrust of these writings as a whole, and it is
understandable that those who already know YEHOSHUA personally would want to begin their studies at
this latter point, I strenuously recommend that The Letters be read in
sequence (except for the reading of Letter #22).
The intimacy developed throughout these writings, and more
importantly, the foundation that is laid within the first ten letters, is
crucial to understanding the entire writing, because they clearly show the
methods, motivation and mannerisms of this teacher.
neglecting to maintain the full teaching of the Inerrant Word of Elohim
(with power and authority), as well as in neglecting to empower the body
as priests unto Him, the 'church', for the last one hundred and fifty
years, has gradually and systematically abandoned the Apostolic teachings
of the first century, and has chosen instead to produce spiritless,
lifeless, powerless, uneducated "converts" to various systems of
belief, which today have no foundation in anything other than what is
modern, acceptable and accommodating to a humanistic society.
in speaking of the Inerrant Word of Elohim, I am speaking of the complete
reliability of Elohim's written Word (Scripture), the Bible, as it was
originally inspired. Aside
from a personal relationship with YEHOSHUA, therefore, another basic foundation to our
Discipleship is our fervent belief that the Bible contains the absolute,
objective truth, as revealed by Elohim, in every area that it touches, and
that it is without error, not only when it speaks of values and spiritual
matters, but it is also without error when it speaks of history and the
cosmos. In today's world,
that is a watershed teaching!
his book, The Great Evangelical Disaster, Dr. Francis Schaeffer describes
a watershed thus: "One time I was on a high rock ridge, with a valley
on both sides. There was snow
on the ground along that ridge. The
snow was lying there unbroken, a seeming unity.
However, that unity was an illusion, for it lay along a great
divide; it lay along a watershed. One
portion of the snow when it melted would flow into one valley.
The snow which lay close beside would flow into another valley when
it melted... On that
particular ridge the melting snow which flows down one side of that ridge
goes down into a valley, into a small river, and then down into the Rhine
River. The Rhine then flows on
through Germany and the water ends up in the cold waters of the North Sea.
The water from the snow that started out so close along that
watershed on the other side of the ridge, when this snow melts, drops off
sharply down the ridge into the Rhone Valley.
This water flows into Lake Geneva, and then goes down below that
into the Rhone River which flows through France and into the warm waters
of the Mediterranean. The snow
lies along that watershed, unbroken, as a seeming unity.
But when it melts, where it ends in its destinations is literally a
thousand miles apart. That is
a watershed. That is what a
watershed is. A watershed
divides. A clear line can be
drawn between what seems at first to be the same or at least very close,
but in reality ends in very different situations.
In a watershed there is a line."
24 years old, The Letters of Faith are a watershed teaching!
You will find dividing lines between today’s church/society and
these writings throughout these pages, because I believe absolute truth
exists! Good and evil exist!
Right and wrong exist! Therefore,
I will take every opportunity to draw the appropriate line in the sand in
defense of the Word of Elohim - in His love - for your salvation and
from a complete failure to maintain and uphold the Inerrant Word of
Elohim, the church and society have also failed to fully believe their
Creator, and have thereby missed the mark, in many significant ways.
an example of this failure, permit me to begin with just one very pressing
matter, because this matter is truly vital:
Bluntly stated, how many professing "christians" and
"christian denominations" (churches) support, or at least find
no fault in, ABORTION? Here is our second watershed issue then, because,
plainly stated, you cannot believe in, support the legality of, or endorse
in any way, the act of abortion, and still consider yourself to be a
disciple! (Psalm 139 to
Elohim seeks dynamic disciples who live for His glory, history clearly
shows an endless stream of countless generations of would-be disciples, who have become lifeless
listeners with humanistic moorings. People
who appear content in their role as Sunday morning spectators, who
accommodate everything held “appropriate” by society, in spite of
Elohim's Word. As we approach
the end time period though, Elohim's call is causing many souls to grow
increasingly uneasy with their assigned role within those 'churches', and
is driving them to search for truthful answers and powerful applications.
The Letters of Faith are a product of one disciple's attempt to
help those who are seeking to know the truth about Elohim and His Word, as
well as about the fullness of fellowship with Him through His Son, YEHOSHUA
ha Mashiach, to not only find His truth, but to actually LIVE that truth
in their daily walk with Him. Abortion
is an issue vital to living that truth in our daily walk with Him!
primary motivation in writing these letters and submitting them in this
format, therefore, is because YEHOSHUA has laid a burden on my heart for His truth, and
for His body (the Ekklesia).
Too many false doctrines have permeated our world, turning too many
hearts away from YEHOSHUA. The
Letters then, are an appeal to the body of Messiah to trim their lamps and
prepare for the eminent return of our King.
process is an unknown commodity today.
The Nicolaitans (those
who would suppress a believer from walking in the fullness of the power
and authority of Elohim) have told us that most of the gifts
are dead, have allowed the undisciplined use of the gifts they do permit
within their assemblies, have taught that repentance
from sin is no longer necessary, or have turned away those disciples who
dare challenge their false authority and incorrect teachings.
In His rebuke of the Nicolaitans though (Revelation 2:6,15)
YEHOSHUA spoke directly to the end time Ekklesia, and in
His chastisement, we find the hope that we can overcome our complacency,
repent from our apostasy and become the true harvest reapers we are now meant to be, because we are that end
The Great Commission
(Matthew 28:18-20) has been ignored for far too long, but Elohim's
Prophetic Word dictates that the faithful development of disciples must
ultimately overtake the conceited approach of expansion via converts.
Presently, soldiers in
YEHOSHUA'S army are undisciplined and untrained, leaving the
world ripe for the deceptions of the Antichrist.
The Letters of Faith are designed to raise the banner of
discipleship unto YEHOSHUA once again, so that Elohim's soldiers may be fully
trained and armed for the battle in which we are already engaged.
Do you understand that? The battle is already engaged!
The question begs asking though: Where are you in this fight for
the glory and majesty of our Master, Messiah and King? Where are you in
this battle for the souls of HIS children?
stated earlier, a topical concordance has been developed especially for
these teachings. This
concordance is provided to offer Scriptural support for every conclusion,
thought and nuance revealed within these writings, and it upholds
Scripture's law of validation.
Additionally, I had two other reasons for developing this
concordance: First, as stated, I believe in the absolute, objective truth
of the Word of Elohim. Therefore,
I am led to encourage every disciple to study His Word.
This concordance is a great study tool.
Second, I believe YEHOSHUA was serious when He uttered the Great Commission.
I was moved to develop the concordance in order to help the
reader's gain an in-depth insight into numerous topics, quickly, thereby
enabling them to use that insight in the training of new disciples.
Every true Seeker and Disciple is strenuously encouraged to study
the concordance materials, as well as any other tool available to them, in
order to faithfully search out the truth of every matter discussed.
is no longer an acceptable practice, in light of the times in which we
live, to remain involved in ministries that do not faithfully and
scripturally feed our souls, either in teaching, or in the practice of a
disciple's true walk. It is no
longer acceptable to support or uplift any ministry, either financially or
in the use of our spiritual gifts, which is more concerned with building
empires than with feeding and clothing the poor, downtrodden, orphaned or
widowed. We must focus upon
tending to Elohim's End Time Harvest, or with assisting those faithful
disciples who are doing these things.
It is wholly unacceptable in Elohim's sight to support in any
fashion, an establishment more concerned with programs than people,
personal gain over forwarding the Gospel message, walking denominational
lines instead of promoting the love and truthful Word of Elohim, being
politically correct instead of being Scripturally accurate (regardless of
the social consequences), or being lukewarm - neither hot nor cold -
instead of being on fire for YEHOSHUA and for His people.
Scripture screams for these matters to be heard, but these are not
matters that tickle our ears. The
Letters, while personal, are never meant as ear tickling devices.
Succinctly stated, if Elohim is not being fully served in a
ministry, someone else is, and that someone else is Satan...
the institutions, we can find littered bodies of babies in Messiah, who
with much bravado and fanfare have been led to the “throne of God in
Jesus Christ”, and have then been allowed to starve as they squirm for a
drop of spiritual milk or a morsel of spiritual food.
the institutions, we find faithful children of Elohim crying for the meat
of His Word, and for fulfillment in their spiritual walk, only to be
frustrated by the false teachers and preachers who would have them believe
their knowledge is inadequate, their gifts either dead or undisciplined
and their fulfillment already achieved.
many institutions, we can find warriors of The Way, who have discerned a
false teaching and confronted the prophets of Babylon, only to be battered
for questioning the long-standing theological beliefs of a particular
congregation or denomination. And
once belittled, they have been told to mature, and learn to compromise
over the lesser issues, or leave.
the institutions, we can find seats that were once occupied by faithful,
reverent believers, who, not denying the fellowship, are weary of
continued abuse at the hands of the Nicolaitans,
and who are fatigued by the unscriptural and unholy practices being
presented today in the name of Jesus Christ.
These are brethren who have discerned the presence of Satan at the
pulpit, and who now wander the wilderness in search for unity with the EKKLESIA.
In an ever-increasing throwaway society, however, these faithful
believers are being replaced so rapidly by "new flesh",
attracted by high profile ear tickling programs, that their absence
seemingly goes unnoticed. YEHOSHUA NOTICES!
brethren around the world are suffering tremendously at the hands of the
false shepherds, false prophets and oppressive governments, but the
message is the same: Pastors
who desire our energy and money, but who care little about our walk with
YEHOSHUA, or the fulfillment of our life purpose, have
overtaken the realm of religion under the guise of being “ministers of
God”. These false
practitioners have literally surrendered the body of the Risen Messiah to
Satan. Although piling mounds
of converts, these false leaders have no intent of making disciples for
Messiah. The intent of the
ministry of The Letters, therefore, and the primary purpose for expanding
our ministry to include The Exalted Name Bible™, is to help feed the flock, eliminate the pain and
suffering, and aid in the cessation of deception.
believe the EKKLESIA, the true Church, desires to hear that which
Elohim has revealed, and is truly awakening to His desires.
The questions answered within The Letters of Faith, and the issues
discussed, are in direct response to our struggle to comprehend the
noticeable differences between what we see in the world and hear in the
religious (Babylonian) institutions, and what we think we are hearing
Elohim say throughout Scripture. The
truth, be it known, will show the differences to be substantial!
do not be offended by the very hard-line approach I take toward the
religious institutions. Watershed
issues exist that must be exposed. My
burden, however, is solely for the EKKLESIA, and I seek only for the body to be everything YEHOSHUA
deserves and desires us to be. If
you are walking faithfully with Elohim, my remarks should not upset you
one iota. If, however, my
approach tweaks at your righteousness, and causes you to reevaluate your
walk, then I have accomplished one of my goals.
While my desire, and my sincere hope, is that The Letters will
assist every individual in their walk with Elohim, so that we may all
hear, “Well done, good and faithful servant” (Matthew 25:21ENB), too
much work is before us to allow the sowers of weeds to interfere with the
harvest. I will not permit
political or religious correctness to subordinate Scripture.
Nor will I allow faithlessness to interfere with the display of
Elohim's love. If you have
sincere questions, please write. I
am dedicated to turning hearts back to Elohim in the fullness of His Word,
and this can only be done in His love, thru the guidance of His Holy
is no claim of inerrancy
to accompany these writings. Nor
is there a claim of divine appointment or inspiration.
The Word of Elohim is the backbone of The Letters of Faith, and I
believe the greatest asset of this work is the concordance that follows
every letter. Additionally,
a complete version of the Topical
Concordance is offered
as a separate item on this book, which is intended to simplify your search
for individual topics.
this is unlike any other publication you have visited or read.
The Letters of Faith are not brief, and the lessons actually
require work on your part. I
do not anticipate writing any additional letters.
My focus today has moved to another website, www.7thcolumnmovement.com,
where I will be writing short missives related to today's political and
spiritual issues. This website, however, will be maintained and kept
current for however long the Master allows!
questions and thoughts are coveted though, because the goal of assisting
all seekers and disciples will not stop until YEHOSHUA returns, or until He decides to take me home,
whichever comes first. If
you are being spiritually fed by this work, I encourage you to drop me a
note. You may just be an
encouragement to me as well...

As time has passed, and technology has advanced, The Letters have
been reformatted for paperback publication at CreateSpace.com,
as well as for the e-Book industry at Kindle
We are laboring to transition The Letters into an audio book now, and hope
to have it available at audible.com soon.
We are also laboring to make a single, inexpensive, book of the
Topical Concordance, in order to accommodate all Audio listeners.
