Blind Leading the Blind

by John and Ruth Greene

deceive blind leading blindToday through scripture, Yahshua [Jesus] tells all the world about how a man is defiled and the results of that defilement. When a blind man leads a blind man, they will fall into a pit. Follow the Master and real Bible knowledge instead.

At that time, the scribes and Pharisees had departed from Jerusalem, coming to Yahshua [Jesus] saying, ‘Why do your disciples violate the ordinance of the elders, because they do not wash their hands whenever eating bread?

And He answered, saying to them, ‘For what cause do you also violate the commandment of Elohim through your ordinance? For Elohim commanded, saying ‘Respect your father and mother,’ and ‘He that curses father or mother, he must be put to death.’ But you say, ‘Whoever says to his father or mother, whatever profit you might have received from me has been offered,’ does not respect his father or mother. So have you made the commandment of Elohim of no effect through your ordinance. Hypocrite, Isaiah honestly prophesied about you, saying, ‘These people draw near to Me with their mouth and respect Me with lips, but their heart is distant from Me. But in vanity they worship Me, teaching for instruction the commandments of men.’

new man in Christ bookThen He called toward the multitude, saying to them, ‘Hear and understand, what goes into the mouth does not profane a man. On the contrary, what departs from the mouth, this profanes [makes him part of the world] a man. When His disciples came to Him, they said, ‘Did you know the Pharisees were stumbled when they heard this word?’

And He answered, saying, ‘All plants that My Heavenly Father has not implanted will be uprooted. Forsake them. They are blind leaders of the blind. Now when the blind lead the blind, both fall into a cistern.’

Then answered Peter saying to Him, ‘Expound this parable to us.’ And Yahshua [Jesus] said, ‘Are you also still without understanding? Do you not yet understand that all entering into the mouth passes into the belly and is sent out into the sewer? But out of the heart issues wicked thoughts, murder, adultery, fornication, theft, false witness and slander. These things profane the man, but to eat with unwashed hands does not profane the man.’” – Matthew 15:1-20, direct translation

bible-7Whatever you believe will bear fruit in your life. According to the teaching of Yahshua [Jesus], evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness and blasphemies come from your heart, after your heart has acted on what your mind has taken in and brought them into belief. The bottom line to the hypocrisy of so many rests in these words of the Messiah:

‘These people draw near to Me with their mouth and respect Me with lips, but their heart is distant from Me. But in vanity they worship Me, teaching for instruction the commandments of men.’” – Matthew 15:8-9, direct translation

Remember that Elohim’s [YHWH] Word is life. Deviating from His Word can have real results, results that will work against you in the end. (“The Antichrist & the War on Reality“)


“Take heed that you separate yourselves from false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inside are ravening wolves. You will know to mark them by their fruit. Does anyone gather grapes from a thorn, or a fig from a brier? In this way, all beneficial trees bear honest fruit, but a worthless tree bears harmful fruit. A beneficial tree cannot bear harmful fruit, neither a worthless tree bear honest fruit. All trees that do not bear honest fruit are cut down and cast into fire. In this manner, by their fruit you will know them.

Not all that say to Me, ‘Master, Master,’ enter into the purpose of the Kingdom of Heaven. To the contrary, he that yields the purpose of My Father in Heaven. Many say to Me in that Day, ‘Master, Master, have we not prophesied in Your Name, and in Your Name cast out devils and in Your Name yielded many miracles? Then at that time I will agree with the authority of Heaven, them I never knew. You! Depart from Me ministers of wickedness.” – Matthew 7:15-23, direct translation

We must not lie to ourselves or accept the deception of the world. Disciples of Messiah must separate themselves from false prophets using the discernment of the Spirit. Seek the truth of scripture and the Counsel of the Holy Spirit, agreeing [homologeo] with Elohim rather the traditions and teachings, the counterfeits of man. Do not blindly accept the behavior and teachings of those that divine their own teachings in ‘God’s Name.’ Instead, look to building your own spiritual maturity as you seek the truth of YHWH through scripture and Spirit. You can do these things because of the sacrifice of Yahshua [Jesus], your Messiah and the power of the Set-Apart Holy Spirit. (“Filling Your Life with Truth Instead of Deception“; “YHWH’s Revolution“; “Understanding Sin“)

“For YHWH so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, RNKJV
Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your glory. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. Amen.
genuine-articleYou will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The names Yahshua and Yahushua are original language names for Jesus,
He is often referred simply as the Messiah or Master.
