The Basics of Bible Truth
YHWH is correctly referred to as Elohim rather than ‘God’
Our Savior is more correctly referred to Yashua rather than ‘Jesus’
Disciples are to be set apart from the world through the power of the Set Apart Ruach or ‘Holy Spirit’
Elohim is the Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Salvation is through Yashua Messiah alone. By His completed sacrifice and ascension, He now lives forever to impact and change His people as they prepare for His Kingdom
The original language of scripture that is the Bible is the infallible, inspired Word of Elohim, effective for rebuking, correction and guidance in all matters of life
As a symbol of their dedication, of being set apart to Him, Elohim’s people are to be baptized by immersion in water
Every believer that is willing is able to experience the baptism and full Counsel of the Holy Spirit with the supernatural gifts of Elohim made manifest in each disciple.
Elohim’s spiritual Realm of joy, peace and full authority is a present reality in His people, in Messiah’s disciples.
Yashua Messiah is returning to the earth in judgment, rewarding the righteous and destroying the wicked.

There are more than six billion people in this world with increasing numbers spending lots of time on the internet, a new kind of gathering place for people of all kinds. You are one of them. Congratulations and thank you for joining us online!
In years past, Bible Vision has had fancy, highly customized websites. We tested the WordPress platform for two years before beginning the conversion of many of our ministry materials to this format. We have adopted the WordPress format so that we can focus on content. More importantly, what is established here is an internet stable resource that lifts up scriptural truth to a world that sorely needs it!
For years, Ruth Greene operated in principal as a healing ministry beginning in the early 1980’s out of Abilene, Texas. This humble ministry has continued as John and Ruth joined forces, so to speak. We didn’t just pray for people, but Elohim [‘God’, YHWH] proved His great love through real healing with measured results, to the amazement of doctors, staff and family. However, as time has marched on, the Holy Spirit [Dedicated, Set Apart Spirit] indicated that this was not enough and that times were changing. Lives were greatly changed and hearts were moved toward the Father. But idolatry was taking place.
Disciples must not confuse physical appearances, gifts of healing and gifts through the Spirit with seeking for these things through the idolatry of self-interest. Physical and mental healing are wonderful gifts, but this health and healing isn’t salvation into Elohim’s Kingdom, nor are these things necessarily proof of salvation or discipleship. It has become obvious that many that received and maintained YHWH’s grace [loving-kindness] of healing and greatly improved health were not always knowledgeable, nor were they necessarily living a life conducive to salvation according to scripture. The right mindset and surroundings can be vital, especially among those of ‘greater worldly wisdom.’ Some are not entirely healed, but this does not diminish a witness to others, nor should it. We live in an imperfect world full of evil and evil influence. We have witnessed the return of diseases and the subsequent deaths of a number of fine people. Some have even rejected the Father and the truth He has offered. We have seen an increasing evil in the lives of professed Christians seeking after a miracle.
Elohim will not be used. All of us are admonished in scripture that a wicked generation seeks a sign, a miracle alone. (Matthew 12:39, 16:3-4, 24:24; Mark 13:22, 16:18-20; Luke 11:29, 23:8; Acts 2:22, 43, 4:29-30; 2 Corinthians 2:12; Hebrews 2:3-4, be sure to read for context) We noticed that this was happening and worked to educate all that would listen. Many have ended up abusing the witness of YHWH and Messiah. False teaching is rampant. Others have tried to explain ‘God’s signs and miracles’ simply through the science of man as a season of great doubt has crept in like a cancer. As the science of man proliferates and unbelief increases, the miracles of Elohim seem to decrease, or at least are less appreciated. Belief in YHWH’s miracles may become attributed to false religion or the great works of man. Unbelief is not conducive to health or healing, let alone eternal life before YHWH. Satan’s influence still rages because Elohim’s Kingdom has not yet put down the system of man. YHWH will not be mocked. Judgment will be made even though the Most High is patient. (Galatians 6:7) Today, the focus of the ministry YHWH has given to us has changed with an emphasis on the life-changing power of the new man in Messiah, a goal to which every person is personally answerable. Even in challenging times of doubt and unrighteousness, the power of YHWH is still available to those with the right heart condition and mindset that does not negate Elohim’s power. (Matthew 6:24; Philippians 3:18-19; 1 John 2:15-17) We urge you NOT to continue to live a mediocre life. Self-interest and iniquity do not save, nor will these yield lasting life. Unbelief and mockery of Elohim and the power of His Spirit kills. The times have changed and this age is drawing to a close, despite the naysayers that would have you believe otherwise or have you look at the authority of man for significance. (Matthew 24:12; 2 Timothy 3:4-5, 16-17; Romans 3:23) Spiritual adultery is not pleasing to YHWH, our Heavenly Father. (James 4:4; Ephesians 5:32; Exodus 20:3-5; Revelation 17:1-6)
As students, researchers, teachers and translators of the Word, we are certain that the Bible from Genesis to Revelation is the Word of Elohim. What is important in the Bible? Every word. But remember that your trust cannot rest in your favorite Bible translation alone, nor on your surface understanding of scripture in your language. Whole denominations have been built on Bible translations through clever crafting of language or through the brevity of ignorance. This is a sad truth. The corruption of man often seeks to creep in to whatever man does, so the original language or text of the Bible must be referred to as the actual Word of YHWH. Your willingness to understand this truth is important. Who do you trust? We trust the Word of YHWH in the Bible and the power of His Spirit.
However, a more important question must be asked. When you can not trust certain organized denominations and churches to tell the truth about what is in the Bible, how can you trust them with the vital matters of salvation and eternal life that come from the same Source? When organized religion cannot properly and simply tell the truth about Messiah’s life on earth that is clearly printed in the Bible, how can you trust the same organized religion with righteousness that is not the pattern of the world? Many prefer a watered-down version of religion filled with man’s opinion rather than obedience to YHWH. If that is the case with you, then you shouldn’t be surprised why your personal prayers are not getting answered or why you don’t have a one-to-one relationship with your Heavenly Father. Of course, whether you have enough of anything in life depends on your personal outlook. Look to building a personal relationship with Elohim through the power of the Holy Spirit [Set Apart Ruach or Spirit] provisioned through Yahshua [Jesus] your Messiah. They are your Best Friend, upholding you as you seek your Father’s righteousness in trust, and showing you how to align your life with that track of righteousness.
May YHWH richly favor you!
