Matt.16:6 Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

Matt. 16:11 How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?

What is the symbolism of leaven one may ask.
Galatians 5:9
A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump. (1 Corinthians 5:6) (*1 Corinthians 5:7)

A little leaven (yeast) sours the whole lump (batch of dough). The same thing happens to a message that is perverted(tampered with). You add one falsehood or twist to the context the slightest bit and you change the whole message!

Example: Satan tried to tempt Christ by twisting scripture:
Psalm 91:12
They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
This is the verse Satan perverted. When we look at it we see that if by accident such happens but Satan put it in the context of well you can choose to dash your foot you will be protected. That is tempting God, and attempting to use him! (Matthew 4:6/ Luke 4:11) he says at any time!

James 1:13 (King James Version)
13Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man

Matthew 7:15 (King James Version)
15Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

2 Corinthians 11:3
But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. (Colossians 2:4/ 1 Cor. 2:4)

Amos 8:11
11Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
Romans 16:17 (King James Version)-19
17Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
WOLF IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING Pictures, Images and Photos

Matthew 23:2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12
2 Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat: (Moses being the law giver!)/ (*1 Chronicles 2:55 read and understand who these people are!)/
3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.
4 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.
5 But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, (Matt.15:3,4,5,6,7,8,9)

It also says alot when one stresses how big(colorful/quality) their tallit, shofar, or tzitzit is. These type people put on a good show to appear more spiritual than others when in fact their priorities reflect physical treasures rather than Spiritual.


Matthew 3:7
But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
Again talking to the Pharisees, John 8:44 44Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

John 3:10-12 (KJV)
10Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?
11Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.
Remember man can justify anything with in his own mind!
12If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?

Luke 11:52
Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.

Lets also remember the description of an anti-Christ (1 John 2:22/ 1 John 4:3/ 2 John 1:7)
1 Peter 4:11
If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

Acts 20:29-30
29For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
30Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

2 Peter 2:1- But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
Isaiah 8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.
Not all are trying to pull you down there is always a remnate present in the world. A good elder is a blessing and such always teach people how to study for themselves and encourage a personal relationship with God! We have no need for a middle man between us and Christ. All sin. Beware of those who do a sermon on one or two verses! Notice how much emphasis is put on donations to the church. Beware of social class and status within a congregation! Do they give All credit to God? Do they pray to any other than God?
Also does your church teach what the two churches Christ found no fault with in Rev. taught? (Church of Smyrna /2:8-11/ Church of Philadelphia/ 3:7-13)

Do you agree with everything of a single denomination or elder?
Denomination- Division (separation)
Church- group of believers
Denominational Church- Separation of The Church!
Are you following man?

Traditions of men make void the Word of God! (Mark 7:13 (Col. 2:8/ Matt. 7:21-23/ Mark 7:6,7,8/ Duet. 5:32/ Matt. 1:10-11/ Jer. 17:5/ Jer. 9:14/Rom.8:28-30/ Phil.4:19/ John 14:6/ John 8:32/


Man Can justify anything within his own mind (Prov.3:1,5/ Luke 10:25-37/ Rom. 11:25/ John 8:47/ Col. 2:23

Pro.3:5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; And lean not unto thine own understanding Rom.11:25a For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits Col.2:23 Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh Gal.5:16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. Pro.14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. Pro.1:7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction..... Rom.10:3 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

When seeking find many scriptures that relate to the subject if not all of them and see where they all agree! This is how you find the truth, there are no contradictions! Does your elder refer back to the original languages! (Hebrew, Greek,& Syriac (Chaldee) It is good to learn how. There also easy to use tools for this as well. Determine which sources you find to be qualified!
Does your church stay in the milk of the Word? Does it ever get into the meat?
Things to consider!

Remember no two will agree on all things all the time! No two are at the same stage in their walk all the time. Do not stay in unfruitful discussions or studies! Don't be lazy when it comes to studing documentation(scripture) on a subject! don't be quick to conclude your studies.

Just because people don't claim alligance to you and your organizations doesn't mean they don't claim alligance to God in Christ's name. Strife and division should not be embraced here!
Mark 9:38-40
And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us. But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me. For he that is not against us is on our part.

(Many want God's people to follow man of social status both in the denominationalisim of "christianity" and in rabbinical sects of "Judaisim")

*****Jew-1) One who is of the tribe of Judah/decendant of Jehudah/by birth 2) One who is a dwells in Jerusalem/by location 3)One who "embraces" Judaism/ by faith/(today many say all tribes and those of the house of Israel are Jew.:(. Begates (lieniage and geneology), seedlines have vital importance in identification within the Word on the physical aspect! Notice in Rev the church of Smyrna and the Church of Philadelphia where the Two of the 7 Christ found no fault with. The Key of David was among their understandings and practices of understanding the Word!

When the king of the north started taking the nothern territories and surrounding areas many settled in Jerusalem that were not originally "Jews". (Jer.35(:11) Such infiltrations started way sooner though. These people even made their way into priestly duties even to the point of making copies of the scriptures(1 Chron. 2:55).

I see the tares and wheat can be both in a physical and Spiritual sense. I do consider Kenites as son's of Cain and that the mark remained with them! (Jer.35:5-7) SOME of those that lead the priesthood during the days of Christ were obviously more conserned about their reputation, social status, power, and agendas rather than truth or the well being of the people (Example look who they chose to set free instead of Christ and how such was a sin according to the death penalty demanded for such.)

The enemy often uses the Church as a weapon of their own.
(Mark 8:15/ Luke 12:1) Matt.16:5-12/Mark 8:14-21/Luke 12:1-12/ Also known as scripture lawers!(#Matt.22:35)/ (#Matt.10:25)/ (#Luke 11:46)


Today there remains a warning. Tomarrow it will either be:

"Well done good and faithful servant" /Matt.25:23/ OR

"I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity." /Matt.7:23/ (Matt.25:12,30,41/ Lk.13:25-27)

("Between the alter and the porch"= where a priest stands when on duty)

The word artos (Strongs #740) used in Matt 26:26, and also for the showbread in the temple (Matt. 17:24). By looking at all the occurances of artos in the NT we see it can mean just general "bread", or any kind of food, sustenance and even manna, and is often also used metaphorically..... ἄρτος basically means bread Not specifically Leavened nor specifically Unleaven thus no reason to interject that  Mk.14:22 is mentioning leavened bread cause it does NOT. Used of any kind of food Matt.6:11 , Mk. 6:8, Lk. 11:3 2 Cor.9:10!!! Also used specifically of MEAL (Flour) before mention of leaven being added!!!! Matt.13:33 and Lk. 13:21 CASE CLOSED. (This was a responce to someone who insisted that the word specifically is to be used of leavened bread and only leavened bread)  The NT insist (like the Tanakh) that this bread has to be unleavened. 1 Cor.5:7-8! So let no one tell you Yeshua or his disciples were partaking of unleavened bread at the seder table (last meal). Have seen some claim to be posting a "Strong's" concordance definition that includes "(raised bread)" and as i have stated it Can refer to leavened or unleavened bread and "()" shows A suggestive use not the be all say all or limited use of the Word and I have two Strong's concordance and internet access to Strongs as well and have never seen this "Strong's" definition but even when its given it doesnt make the claim other are who insist artos is only to say leavened bread.

Unfounded date relation by rabbis to the binding of Isaac states (without citing a source)... "Abraham's supreme test of faith -- his binding of Isaac in preparation to sacrifice him as per G-d's command -- occurred on the 1st of Tishrei of the year 2084 from creation (1677 BCE), and is recalled each Rosh Hashanah with the sounding of the shofar (ram's horn -- a ram was sacrificed in Isaac's stead when an angel revealed that the command to sacrifice Isaac was but a divine test); the Torah's account of the event is publicly read in the synagogue on the 2nd day of Rosh Hashanah." ... I was seeing strong relations to Pesach and just wanted to see what other relations others have Claimed (and why). Instead of saying we Relate it to Rosh Hashanah cause thats when they sound the Shofar and recite the account, They gave a yr, mounth and day which is alot.

Comment by William H. on September 29, 2012 at 5:40am

In rabbinic Judaism traditions of men are held up as The Authority. The Levitical Priesthood (Deut.17:9) was the Biblical priestly order yet it became perverted and fell. Yet the religion of (rabbinic) Judaism has replaced Obvious Levites with "rabbis" & given them the upmost authority. (Jer.18:18/ Deut.19:17/ Deut.27:19

Within the Rabbi religion, Presetence carries the weight. If a rabbi introduces a new concept they can simpley say this "truth" was revealed to Moses on the mount and understood among the priests of His day according to Oral Torah and now revealed through me a "rabbi".

Within the Talmud and other rabbinic sources you can see many views and layers of thought some of which dont agree with others (conflicting rabbinic presentations). In these situations it is standard that Presetence determines what is to be considered The Authority (devine revelation). This is DANGEROUS.

We can see the Danger of this in the court systems of the Us Government. Hard Evidence is often thrown out of courtrooms in the name of presetence based on past ruling that say how evidence can and cant be gathered.  A majority consensus does NOT equal right or righteous in the eyes of The LORD.


Ex.23:2 Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment:

(Some rabbis point to this and say: here we are given weight to presetence in the Torah in relation to the rabbinic authority)

(Lev.19:18,34/ Mk.12:31/ Matt.22:39/ Ex.23:9)

Physical Israel has served as a light unto the nations. Israel has brought forth the witten Word and The Spiritual Word (Yeshua), Israel has served as an example of what it is to have a relationship with YHVH (blessings & or curses). The Authority is always in the Spirit of truth Not Man Ps.118:8/ Ps.40:4

You would think with the stressing of Presetence that the rabbinic stance would be constant but History has shown that isnt the cause. Before Yeshua it was presetence amoung the sages that areas like Is.53 were clearly about Messiah. The sages gave very Christian like interpretations of Scriptures that later rabbis changed and later gain support and new presetence

Look at the Blasphemy and perversion in "Midrash Pesikta Rabbati":

"A person must not say, I will not keep the commandment of the elders because they are not from the Torah. The Almighty says to such a person, No, My son! Rather all that they decree upon you, observe! As it is written, According to the instruction which they teach you (it points to Deut.17:11). Even I (GOD) must obey their decree, as it is written, You will decree and He will fulfill it (and then it points to Job.22:8)."

Deut. 4:2

Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.


What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.

Proverbs 30:6

Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

Is. 29:13

Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:

Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel.

For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.

1 John 4:1
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

Matthew 24:11
And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
Jeremiah 5:31 /
Jeremiah 14:14
Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.
Matthew 24:24
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
Mark 13:22
For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.
