Eliyah The Prophet

How about: Eliyah? (ay-lee-yah) Why do we hear hardly anything about this amazing man? He said: If I am a man of YHWH, may fire come down from heaven and consume you and your 50 men. The fire came down!! (2Kings chapter 1) Did he do this for fun? Was he just trying to make a point? More likely, it seems to me, the 51 soldiers were sent to arrest him, and were not the least bit friendly about it. Maybe they were disrespectful of: YHWH? Perhaps Eliyah was surrounded and being threatened by the soldiers? Then he would have some motivation to say what he did. So the fire comes down! If Eliyah is surrounded, he was in the middle of the fire. He was tested by the fire of YHWH same as the others. We can not enter the kingdom of YHWH until we can walk through the fire. Real fire!

Okay, so there is something here which I just cannot over-emphasize. If you want to enter the Kingdom Of Heaven, there is something extremely important for you to know. What about where the bible says there is only one name that can save you? If you want to go to the Kingdom of Heaven, you MUST call on that name. And no, that name is NOT Jesus. Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other. For there is no other name under heaven given to men, whereby we can be saved. That name is: YHWH, Yahwah. Please see: Joel 2:28-32 and Acts 2:21.

If you think the one name that can save you is Jesus, consider this. The name Jesus did not exist as such when those words were written. They had the Greek god: Iesous, son of Zeus. But the Messiyah of Yahwah had a Hebrew name, there is no way around that. His name is Yahushua. When you say Yahushua, you are literally saying: Yahwah saves. So the very name of Yahushua tells us the one name that saves us.

You know it says: I will send you Eliyah the prophet before the great day (Malachi 4:5, Matthew 17:10-11). So who was Eliyah? You heard of Noah. He died. You heard about Abraham. He died. You heard of Moshe. He died. You heard of king David. He died. You heard of Yahushua Messiyah. He died too. Eliyah did not die! He was taken straight up to heaven while he was still alive, as you can see in 2Kings 2:11. I think Enoch is the only other person in history who can claim that distinction. That would indicate they are two of the most special humans who ever lived! So what did Eliyah do for you and I?

Flip on over to the First Book of Kings, and we'll find out. This is one of the most inspiring and revealing passages in the whole scriptures. In 1Kings 16:32-33 we see Ahab the king of Israel brought in the worship of Ba'al and his consort Easter (Asherah). In 17:1 Eliyah the Tishbite condemned Israel to a severe drought for those sins. For three years (or seven, depending on the book) the whole nation begged Ba'al and Easter (the goddess of spring rebirth) for rain. But they got none. As long as Israel worshipped Ba'al and Easter there was no rain nor dew upon their land. After a few years the land was shriveled up. There was no water, and very little food. They survived by eating their animals. By then they were willing to listen to what Eliyah had to say. Are you reading along in a standard christian bible? If so, you will see something like this:
King James Version: 1Kings 18:18 And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father's house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the LORD, and thou hast followed Baalim. 19 Now therefore send, [and] gather to me all Israel unto mount Carmel, and the prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat at Jezebel's table. 20 So Ahab sent unto all the children of Israel, and gathered the prophets together unto mount Carmel. 21 And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD [be] God, follow him: but if Baal, [then] follow him. And the people answered him not a word. 22 Then said Elijah unto the people, I, [even] I only, remain a prophet of the LORD; but Baal's prophets [are] four hundred and fifty men. 23 Let them therefore give us two bullocks; and let them choose one bullock for themselves, and cut it in pieces, and lay [it] on wood, and put no fire [under]: and I will dress the other bullock, and lay [it] on wood, and put no fire [under]: 24 And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the LORD: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken. 25 And Elijah said unto the prophets of Baal, Choose you one bullock for yourselves, and dress [it] first; for ye [are] many; and call on the name of your gods, but put no fire [under]. 26 And they took the bullock which was given them, and they dressed [it], and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, O Baal, hear us. But [there was] no voice, nor any that answered. And they leaped upon the altar which was made. 27 And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud: for he [is] a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, [or] peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked. 28 And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them. 29 And it came to pass, when midday was past, and they prophesied until the [time] of the offering of the [evening] sacrifice, that [there was] neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded. 30 And Elijah said unto all the people, Come near unto me. And all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the altar of the LORD [that was] broken down. 31 And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, unto whom the word of the LORD came, saying, Israel shall be thy name: 32 And with the stones he built an altar in the name of the LORD: and he made a trench about the altar, as great as would contain two measures of seed. 33 And he put the wood in order, and cut the bullock in pieces, and laid [him] on the wood, and said, Fill four barrels with water, and pour [it] on the burnt sacrifice, and on the wood. 34 And he said, Do [it] the second time. And they did [it] the second time. And he said, Do [it] the third time. And they did [it] the third time. 35 And the water ran round about the altar; and he filled the trench also with water. 36 And it came to pass at [the time of] the offering of the [evening] sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou [art] God in Israel, and [that] I [am] thy servant, and [that] I have done all these things at thy word. 37 Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that thou [art] the LORD God, and [that] thou hast turned their heart back again. 38 Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that [was] in the trench. 39 And when all the people saw [it], they fell on their faces: and they said, The LORD, he [is] the God; the LORD, he [is] the God. 40 And Elijah said unto them, Take the prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape. And they took them: and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there.
This makes it sound like the LORD God is the good god, and Ba'al is the bad god (see verse 18). So you read that the Israelites were committing the horrible sin of worshipping the god named: Ba'al. The message in the King James Version is that we are supposed to worship "The LORD". Indeed, all the 450 priests of Ba'al were killed. Hmm. Okay, do some research concerning the god named: Ba'al. Who was he? In English, we are told he was: "The LORD". Not just any old lord, but: "THE Lord".

For example, Holman Bible Dictionary has a heading called BAAL. They say: BAAL (Ba al) Lord of Canaanite religion ... occurs in the OT as a noun meaning "lord, owner, posessor, or husband," and as a proper noun referring to the supreme god of the Canaanites.

Baal, Adonai, and Lord, are the same exact word in different languages. Note that as a common noun it is not capitolized, but as a proper noun it is capitolized. The term 'proper noun' means: it is used as a name. You might notice these sorts of informations are hidden in most all christian materials. You have to dig deep, and keep digging. Then you will see the truth I am telling you.

Holman Bible Dictionary has another heading called BAALI. They say: BAALI (Ba al i) Form of address meaning, "my lord," or "my baal." Hosea used a play on words to look to a day when Israel would no longer worship Baal (Hosea 2:16). He said Israel, the bride, would refer to Yahweh, her God and husband, as "my man" (Hebrew, ishi) but not as "my lord" (Hebrew, baali). Even though baal was a common word for lord or husband, Israel could not use it because it reminded them too easily of Baal, the Canaanite God.

Or how about Harper's Bible Dictionary? They say: Baal (ba al) (Canaanite-Phoenician "master" "lord")

Now let us swing over to eliyah.com and search through his: Strong's Hebrew Lexicon. The word ba'al without a capitol letter is a common word with lots of similar meanings. Husband, master, owner, boss, lord, that sort of thing. But when you capitolize the word it becomes: Strong's word number 1168. Now it specifically refers only to the supreme deity of the Canaanites. But the Canaanites didn't want to insult his good name (Zeus), so they always refered to him as: Ba'al or El. Since El and God are the same word, we see that they all worshipped: The LORD God. HE's the bad guy!!!

The LORD God is our enemy, the enemy of the entire human race!

Strong's word number 1166 ba'al (baw-al') a primitive root; to be master; hence, (as denominative from 1167) to marry:--have dominion (over), be husband, marry(-ried, X wife).

Strong's word number 1167 ba'al (bah'-al) from 1166; a master; hence, a husband, or (figuratively) owner (often used with another noun in modifications of this latter sense):--+ archer, + babbler, + bird, captain, chief man, + confederate, + have to do, + dreamer, those to whom it is due, + furious, those that are given to it, great, + hairy, he that hath it, have, + horseman, husband, lord, man, + married, master, person, + sworn, they of.

Strong's word number 1168 Ba'al (bah'-al) the same as 1167; Baal, a Phoenician deity:--Baal, (plural) Baalim.

Notice the apostrophe in the word ba'al. Then notice it is pronounced with two syllables. That apostrophe merely indicates the pronunciation. It is often spelled as baal. The other cases above show it is pronounced: ba al. Here the space indicates the two syllables. Also please notice that yes, ba'al and Ba'al are the same word. Notice in the second case it is capitolized, and that is when it refers to the main Canaanite deity. Ba'al, Baal, and Lord are the same word. It is not just me who is telling you this.

This seems kinda confusing. Doesn't Eliyah tell us to worship The LORD? How can he tell us to worship The LORD, and at exactly the same time tell us to hate Ba'al (The LORD) and his servants? Since Ba'al and the LORD are the same god, how can he be the good god and the bad god, both at the same time!? Should we love him, or hate him?

There is an answer to this confusion. And it is purposely hidden in nearly all christian bibles. You should find it in the Introduction or Preface, the part before Genesis. Up there, in my NKJV for example, it says the translators REMOVED the "covenant name of God" from the scriptures, and replaced Him with: "The LORD". They do not even tell us what this so-called covenant name is. I will tell you. It is: YHWH. You will find it in Exodus 3:15. I usually pronounce it as: Yahwah.

YHWH is the memorial name of our Creator. His name was removed from the christian bibles, and replaced with: The LORD. They took out the name YHWH, the only name under heaven which can save you, and they replaced it with: Ba'al!

This whole episode is a perfect example of translation and transcription. When you translate from one language to the second, you use the words in the second language which have the same meaning in the first. That way the reader in the second language does not have to learn any new words. A name is different. With a name we transcribe it from the first to the second language. That means we use whichever letters in the second language which make the name sound exactly the same. Ba'al is really a title, although it is used as a name. So in this passage it should be translated into the equivalent English word, which is: Lord. But there is already a Lord in the verse, because they removed YHWH and put in: the LORD (because that is who they worship). It would be real confusing to have two LORD's, especially since one is the good god and one is the bad god. So instead of translating Ba'al into Lord, they transcribed it into: Baal. Lord is the English word which means the same thing. Baal is the English letter spelling which makes the name sound the same as it did in the original language.

The Canaanites worshipped: The Lord God. And his wife: Easter. They are both real gods, not idols. They were created by: Yahwah. What did Yahwah tell Moshe about the Canaanite gods? He said to completely obliterate everything to do with the worship of: The Lord and Easter. Kill every person, so they do not teach you to worship the gods they worship.
Deuteronomy 6:13 Fear Yahwah your Father. Serve Him. Swear by His Name. 14 Do not go after gods, of the gods of the peoples that are round about you, 15 lest the anger of Yahwah your Father is kindled against you, and He destroy you from off the face of the earth. 7:1 Yahwah your Father brings you into the land where you go to possess it [Canaan], and will cast out many nations before you. 2 When Yahwah your Father delivers them up before you, and you smite them, then you will utterly destroy them. You will make no covenant with them, nor show mercy to them. 3 Neither will you make marriages with them. You will not give your daughter to his son, nor will you take his daughter to your son. 4 She will turn your son away from following Me, that they may serve the gods [Lord God and Easter]. So the anger of Yahwah will be kindled against you, and He will destroy you quickly. 5 But thus you will deal with them. You will break down their altars, dash in pieces their pillars, hew down their Easter idols [Asherim], and burn their idols with fire. 16 You will consume all the peoples Yahwah your Father delivers to you. Your eye will not pity them. Neither will you serve their gods, for that will be a snare to you. 25 Burn the idols of their gods with fire. 8:19 It will be, if you forget Yahwah your Father, to walk after those gods, serve them, and worship them, I testify against you today you will surely perish. 9:4 Whereas for the wickedness of these nations Yahwah drives them out from before you. 5 Not for your righteousness, or for the uprightness of your heart, do you go in to possess their land. But for the wickedness of these nations Yahwah your Father does drive them out from before you.

Yahwah hates: the Lord God and Easter. Worshipping them is a wicked, evil thing. Everyone who worships them will be punished and thrown into the Lake of Fire. Notice what Eliyah said about The LORD: He is a god. The priests were calling satan, and getting no result. Perhaps he was not paying attention, he could have been sleeping, or some other place. Or maybe YHWH did not give him permission to respond. That is doubly distinct from Yahwah who is not a god, and who is always there, everywhere, all the time.

So now let us re-read about Eliyah with YHWH's name restored. First I will replace Yahwah's name in the name of Eliyah the Prophet. Did you see how perverse and persistent is the removal of Yahwah's name?

Then I will remove 'The LORD' from the christian version, and replace it with 'YHWH', just as we all know for a fact it should be, and used to be. If the name of Yahwah should not be in the bible, then it would not have been there in the first place. Yahwah put it there, and humans removed it (without His permission). So I have to restore it.

And then let me also replace 'Baal' with 'The LORD', which is what Baal IS in English. And let me put Easter in her place. Now all the names will be correct. Maybe this passage will make more sense now? I mean, check out the first verse, and notice it perfectly describes all christianity and Judaism, both.
1Kings 18:18 And he answered: I do not trouble Yisrayah. You [have], and your father's house, in that you forsake the commandments of: YHWH. Instead you follow: The LORD. 19 Now therefore send, and gather to me all Yisrayah unto Mount Carmel. [Bring] the four hundred and fifty prophets of The LORD, and the four hundred prophets of Easter who eat at Jezebel's table. 20 So Ahab sent to all the children of Yisrayah, and gathered the prophets together unto Mount Carmel.

21 Eliyah came near to all the people, and said: How long will you go limping between the two sides? If YHWH is our Father, follow Him. But if The LORD, then follow him. The people answered him not a word. 22 Then Eliyah said to the people: I, even I only, am left a prophet of YHWH. The LORD's prophets are four hundred and fifty men. 23 Give us two bulls. Let them choose one bull for themselves, cut it in pieces, and lay it on the wood, but put no fire under. I will dress the other bull, lay it on the wood, and put no fire under. 24 You call on the name of your God. I will call on the: Name of YHWH. The One who answers by fire, let Him be our Master. All the people answered, and said: It is well spoken.

25 Eliyah said to the prophets of The LORD: Choose one bull for yourselves, and dress it first, for you are many. Call on the name of your God, but put no fire under. 26 They took the bull which was given them, dressed it, and called on The LORD from morning even until noon, saying: O LORD, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any that answered. And they leaped about the altar which was made.

27 It came to pass at noon, Eliyah mocked them, and said: Cry aloud, for he is a god. Either he is musing, or he is gone aside, or he is on a journey, or perhaps he sleeps and must be awakened. 28 They cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lances, till the blood gushed out upon them. 29 And it was so, when midday was past, that they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening oblation. But there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded.

30 Eliyah said to all the people: Come near me. All the people came near to him. He repaired the altar of YHWH that was thrown down. 31 Eliyah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Yaacob, unto whom the Word of YHWH came, saying: Yisrayah is your name. 32 With the stones he built an altar in the: Name of YHWH. He made a trench about the altar, as great as would contain two measures of seed. 33 He put the wood in order, cut the bull in pieces, and laid it on the wood. He said: Fill four jars with water, pour it on the burnt-offering, and on the wood. 34 He said: Do it the second time. And they did it the second time. And he said: Do it the third time. And they did it the third time. 35 The water ran round about the altar, and he filled the trench also with water.

36 It came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening oblation, Eliyah the Prophet came near, and said: O YHWH, the Father of Abraham, of Yitzchaq, and of Yisrayah, let it be known today you are the King in Yisrayah, that I am your servant, and that I did all these things at your Word. 37 Hear me, O YHWH, hear me, so this people may know that you, YHWH, are our Master, and that you have turned their heart back again.

38 Immediately, the fire of YHWH fell [from heaven] and consumed the burnt-offering, the wood, the stones, the dust, and even licked up the water that was in the trench. 39 When all the people saw it, they fell on their faces! They said: YHWH! HE is our Father! YHWH, He is our King!

40 Eliyah said to them: Take the prophets of The LORD, do not let one of them escape. So they took them. Eliyah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and killed them there.
Wow! Now we see something extremely important! All those Yisrayahites of the day, the whole nation, already KNEW the difference between: YHWH and The LORD. And we see that YHWH reigns supreme. They prayed to the Lord God for rain, and the Lord God could not help them. They asked Easter, the goddess of spring, and she could not give any rain. It only rains when Yahwah says for it to rain.

What is the "name of The LORD"? Ba'al had 450 priests, and they were all worthless. Eliyah proves beyond a doubt The LORD (Ba'al, Adonai) is a worthless pagan god. The goddess Easter had 400 priests, and they were just as worthless. Notice how the catholic KJV hides the name of Easter by saying "the groves". Easter idols were constructed as a grove of trees making a maze, with a phallic symbol in the middle. Yes, Easter was condemned in the Old Testament. Why do you think the catholics choose to hide this from you? All christian versions of the bible hide this fact from you. They do it by not spelling Easter the way we normally spell it. They only teach you what they want you to know.

As long as Israel worshipped The LORD God and Easter there was no rain nor dew upon their land. Not one drop. As soon as they turned back to Yahwah it rained. So what did Eliyah do for you? Eliyah told you who the bad guy is, right now, in your lifetime, today. That is what Eliyah did for you. He identified two of the three worst evils you have to face in this world. They are: The LORD God and Easter! The LORD and Easter were the gods of Babylon and Canaan. When the Book of Revelations speaks about modern Babylon it is speaking about whoever worships: The LORD God and Easter!

But wait, Eliyah did even more than that for you. He also named the one name that can save you. He gave you the most powerful word in the universe. This word defeats all else, it even defeats: God!!

So when the Israelites replaced YHWH with Ba'al they were breaking the Ten Commandments: You shall have no mere god before YHWH. When the christian translators replace YHWH with The LORD in all of the bibles, they are breaking the same commandments. They are also lying to you. What about where it says there is only one name that can save you? If you want to go to the Kingdom of Yahwah, you must call on that name. So why did the catholics remove that name, and replace it with: The LORD??!?!? Because they are the ministers of: Satan. They have tricked you into worshipping the evil god: Ba'al. They despise: YHWH.
1Kings 19:9 What are you doing here, Eliyah? 10 He said: I am very zealous for Yahwah, the Father of hosts.

Judges 2:11 The children of Yisrayah did what was evil in the sight of Yahwah, and served the lords. 12 They forgot Yahwah, the Father of their fathers, who brought them out of the land of Egypt. They followed gods, of the gods of the peoples round about them, and bowed themselves down to them. They provoked Yahwah to anger. 13 They abandoned Yahwah to serve: The LORD and Easter. 14 The anger of Yahwah was kindled against Yisrayah, and He delivered them into the hands of spoilers who despoiled them. He sold them into the hands of their enemies round about, so they could no longer stand before their enemies.
Be certain to swing on by 2Kings 10:18-28, and see what you see. And check out 1Kings 22:5-8. It should be horribly obvious that everyone KNEW the difference between YHWH and Ba'al. They KNEW they were two different individuals they were worshipping, even though they pretended YHWH and The Lord are the same thing. The catholics KNEW they were deceiving you. The catholics, all christians, KNOW they are deceiving you. Why? So that you cannot enter the Kingdom of Yahwah.

Whenever someone tells you to pray to The LORD, run away as fast as you can!

Now, if you are still concerned about the quality of Eliyah's testimony, in spite of the great sign given by Yahwah, please consider these passages:
James 5:17 Eliyah was a man of like passions with us. He prayed that it might not rain, and it did not rain on the earth for three years and six months. 18 He prayed again, the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.

Yahshua son of Sirach 48:1 Then Eliyah the prophet stood up as fire, his word burned like a lamp. 2 He brought a sore famine upon them, by his zeal he diminished their number. 3 By the Word of Yahwah he shut up the heaven, and also brought down fire three times. 4 O Eliyah, how you were honored in your wondrous deeds! Who may glory like to you! 5 You raised up a dead man from death, his soul from the place of the dead, by the Word of the most High. 6 You brought kings to destruction, and honorable men from their bed. 8 You annointed kings to take revenge, and a prophet to succeed after you. 9 You were taken up in a whirlwind of fire, in a chariot of fiery horses. 10 You were ordained for reproofs in their times, to pacify the wrath of Yahwah's judgment before it broke forth into fury, to turn the heart of the father to the son, and to restore the tribes of Yaacob. 11 Blessed are those who saw you, and slept in love, for we will surely live. 12 It was Eliyah who was covered with a whirlwind.

The Acts of Pontius Pilate IX (XXV) But the Messiyah holding the hand of Adam delivered him to Michayah the archmalak. All the saints followed Michayah the archmalak, and he brought them all into the glory and beauty of paradise. And there met with them two men, ancients of days. They were asked of the saints: Who are you that have not yet been dead in hell with us, yet are set in paradise in the body? One of them answering, said: I am Enoch who was translated here by the Word of Yahwah, and this who is with me is Eliyah the Thesbite who was taken up in a chariot of fire. Up to this day we have not tasted death. We are received unto the coming of Anti-Messiyah [Jesus Christ], to fight against him with signs and wonders of Yahwah, to be killed by him in Yerusalem, and after three and a half days to be taken up again alive on the clouds [Yahwah's two witnesses].

Revelation 11:3 I will give unto my Two Witnesses, and they will prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. 4 These are the two olive trees and the two candlesticks, standing before the Master of the earth. 5 If any man desires to hurt them, fire proceeds out of their mouth and devours their enemies.
