Our English word “church” comes from the Greek word “kyriakon” which is never used in the ancient texts from which the Bible is translated. “Kyriakon” is a compound of two words, “kyrios” meaning the Lord, and “oikas” meaning house, a building. “Kyriakon” literally means the Lord's house, and this is why the word church has the connotation of a building. Ask any Christian, “Where is your church?” They will automatically refer to a particular building. Now there is a Greek word that the King James boys mistranslated “church” and it is NOT “kyriakon”.
The first time that the English word “church” appears in the King James Version of the New Testament is in Matthew 16:18 where Jesus says to the disciples, “I will build My CHURCH; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” What is this thing that the gates of hell cannot prevail against? It is the Greek word “ekklayseeah” that is mistranslated “church”. “Ekklayseeah” is also a compound of two words. The first part “ek” is a preposition meaning “out of or from” and “klayseeah” is a noun meaning “the called”. Its literal meaning is “those who are the called, out of or from”. In order to understand what the “ekklayseeah” is, it will be necessary to trace its origin and development through the scriptures.
Christianism teaches that the “church” originated in the New Testament, but this is completely false according to the Bible. Hebrews 2:12 says, “I will declare Thy name unto My brethren, in the midst of the CHURCH will I sing praise unto Thee.” Be aware that this is a direct quotation of Psalm 22:22 in the Old Testament. “I will declare Thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the CONGREGATION will I praise Thee.” Evidently the Greek word “ekklayseeah” translated “church” in Hebrews 2:12 is the equivalent of the Hebrew word “qahal” translated “congregation” in Psalm 22:22.
>Another witness to this is found in Acts 7:37-38 where Stephen recounts Israel's deliverance from Egypt, and says that Moses “was in the CHURCH in the wilderness,” when he said, “A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear.” This too, is a direct quotation from Deuteronomy 18:15 in the Old Testament. “The LORD (YAHWAH) thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken.” According to verse 16 Moses was “in Horeb in the day of the ASSEMBLY” when he said this. Again the Greek word “ekklayseeah” that is translated “church” in Acts 7:38 is equivalent to the Hebrew word “qahal” translated “assembly” in Deuteronomy 18:16.
Even though the same Hebrew word “qahal” is translated congregation and assembly in these verses by the King Jimmy boys, the ancient writers used it for only the heads or leaders of the nation. They used the Hebrew word “edah” when referring to the whole nation. This is clearly illustrated in Numbers 10:1-10, where God tells Moses to blow only ONE trumpet to assemble the “qahal”, “the princes, which are heads of thousands of Israel,” (Numbers 10:4, 7). Moses was also instructed to blow TWO trumpets to assemble the whole nation, the “edah” (Numbers 10:2-3).
The whole racial nation, Israel, is the “edah”, but out of this nation, the “edah”, was chosen the leaders, the “qahal”, and this select group is called the “ekklayseeah” in the New Testament. God did not change His plan from the Old to the New Testament in spite of Christianism’s lying doctrines. He is not replacing the racial nation of white adamic Israel through adopting all kinds of 2 legged beings that can utter the words “I believe” or “I accept”. Nothing could be further from the truth. Read what the apostle Paul says in Romans 11:2. “God hath not cast away His people which He foreknew”. Paul does not quit there but declares in verse 26 “And so ALL Israel shall be saved,” and in verse 28 he explains why this is. “But as touching the election (Israel) they are beloved for the fathers’ sakes.” The Greek word “eklogh” is translated “election” in this verse and it only pertains to the whole racial nation, the “edah”. It is from within this whole racial nation that the 1 in a 1,000 are chosen to become the “qahal”, the “ekklayseeah”, the “VERY ELECT”. This duality of classification is pointed out by Jesus in Matthew 24:22-24. “For the ELECT’S sake those days shall be shortened,” and “if it were possible, they (false christs and false prophets) shall deceive the VERY ELECT.” There are the “elect”, and there are the “very elect”. Both are of the same race and one is chosen out of the other.
In the plan of God, “ALL Israel shall be saved,” the “edah”, the “elect”, but a special few from within that racial nation become, the “qahal”, the “ekklayseeah”, the “very elect”, the ones from the thousands. This is what Hebrews 12:22-23 teaches. “You are come…to the general assembly (“edah”, “elect”) and the church (“qahal”, “ekklayseeah”, “very elect”) of the first born.” Paul refers to this divine order in 1 Corinthians 15:23-24, “But every man in his own ORDER: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming (the “very elect” leaders). Then cometh the end, when He (YAHWASUA) shall have delivered up the kingdom (the “elect” whole racial nation Israel) to God, even the Father; when He (YAHWAH) shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.”
The “church”, the “ekklayseeah”, the “very elect” are the “ones of thousands” chosen by YAHWAH from within His chosen race adamic white Israel to receive the life of LIGHT. Today is NOT the time for the “whole nation”, so if you grasp this truth, then REJOICE and do not grieve for your racial kinsmen, your blinded brethren, for NOW is NOT their time. Understand Jesus YAHWASUA chose only a few, and when they ask Him about everybody else He said “leave them alone”, in other words “Don’t worry about them”. Right now, “It is given to you to know, but to them it is not given.” This is all according to YAHWAH God’s plan. He has established an ORDER in all things. Are you so full of ego that you question His plan? Do you agonize because things are not the way you want them? Where is FAITH in this? Be filled with the power of 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18. “REJOICE evermore. Pray without ceasing. In everything give THANKS: for this is the WILL of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” Lift up your head in rejoicing praise for YAHWAH has specifically chosen you to be the one from thousands, His qahal ekklayseeah very elect which is the CHURCH.
