16 thoughts on “Why Does Preaching the Gospel TRUTH Hack YOU Off?

  1. I have taken a little bit of time to formulate a response to your reply as I feel was appropriate in order not to come across as excessively harsh. I came to you with a gentle and peaceful opinion, using the scripture to convey my point that your temperament and demeanor have deteriorated and the result of which has been somewhat off-putting. Rather than receiving correction, you have responded brutally making assumptions of my character. Just who do you think you are talking to here? You know absolutely nothing about me. Mainstream Christian? I rebuke mainstream Christians every Shabbat, challenging them and opening their eyes to the truth of the scripture, all in a friendly and God-fearing manner. You have judged me incorrectly sir. You have made several assumptions of me, now I will make some assumptions of you.
    But first, to even assume that I would take the words of Matthew 7 out of it’s context and use it as ammunition against you, like a quote “mainstream Christian”, displays your contemptuousness for me, mainstream Christians, and most likely anyone who disagrees or criticizes you in general. Do you fancy me an idiot? Do you arrogantly assume that you are the purported “master” and little old me, searching far and wide for knowledge and sound instruction, must be of such inferior intellect as to not be able to discern the truth of the scripture? This is arrogant pomposity. Through your carefully devised and veiled insults you have exposed the sin that plagues you: self-righteousness and narcissistic Pride.
    You think my ears need tickling, that I need coddling, that Yah has not equipped me with power to rebuke unrighteousness and see through the temper tantrum you display before him. You clearly are very angry. You take this anger out on everyone lately from Jerry last week, to me yesterday, to everyone including Christians, Torah-keepers, even your students and subscribers in the videos. But who are you really angry at, sir? Might I suggest at yourself? No, no, no, its not me that needs the coddling, but you!
    You obviously have never faced much adversity. How weak a faith for a man to be so visibly shaken by something so small as a flu virus, or rather “the Devil himself” as you put it. I would hate to witness your meltdown in the event of something horrible actually occurring to you. Yah seems to have coddled you since your birth. How easy it would be to look down one’s nose at other people and berate them for their every misstep if one never experienced another’s struggle. Hey there buddy, we all weren’t raised by Torah teachers like you were. Not all of us grow up on organic farms eating kosher. Some of us are afflicted by genetic diseases, unlike you. Some people experience adultery, divorce, suicide of a loved one, unlike you. This should all be taken into consideration before one assails others. As for myself needing your coddling? Never, I’ve been through more tempering than you could ever possibly imagine. You can keep your sympathy, (or your lack thereof). You are talking to no weakling, neither physical nor spiritual.
    I get it. You are “pissed”, right? According to the Psalm, “Yah promised he would take care of me… that nothing bad could ever happen to me… no illness will befall me while I obey his word… ect”. What a sissy, weak perspective. Do you really believe that Yahovah will never try you, test you, or put you to the refiner’s fire? You need to think this through and move beyond this anger that is driving you to attack people. Sitting up there on your high-hill, screaming and yelling at people, pointing fingers, blaming others, threatening, “Come on my blog and I will ban you!”; what is your purpose here? Are you teaching, helping, edifying others? Do you think this behavior is doing anything positive for anyone, least of all you? Who is the target audience of this garbage message: people that need help? No buddy, you’re preaching to the choir. You’re talking to a tiny group of people who hang on your every word like you’re the Messiah, who parrot and praise you, who feed your ego. Everybody else changed the channel, just like you told them to! You told them you could care less about them, their thoughts. Great message there, teacher, and how well it aligns with our Father’s words.
    You proceed to deny being a prophet. Immediately afterwards you equate yourself with John the Baptist and the prophet Amos. Which is it? Such loftiness! You claim Yah to be using you as his messenger even as you drive his sheep away. “Turn it off, turn it off”, you scream all the while ranting and raving and spitting all over the camera. Your message is accurate; your delivery is sorely lacking and this was my whole point. Unless you want to tell me that this message was audibly whispered in your ear by the Messenger of YHVH, then I am going to call BS. This message came straight out of your anger and pain, showing no evidence of the fruits of the Spirit mentioned above, and served as a ringing gong in your echo hall of self-righteousness. Elohim’s kingdom is not advanced in this manner. You instead drive his people away. They need instruction. They don’t need an asinine, narcissist verbally punishing them. I wouldn’t even let my child watch that display of exasperation!
    So, getting to the point, let us examine the Apostle Paul’s view of disease in one of his often quoted passages. “And lest I be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations (his knowledge), a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure (become conceited)… Therefore most gladly I WILL RATHER BOAST in my infirmities, that the POWER OF YESHUA MAY REST UPON ME. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities…. FOR YESHUA’S SAKE. “ What an obvious contradiction to the manner you have chosen to view your refinement. I don’t hear him crying and whining about how unfairly Yah has treated him. I sure hear it from you though. “Oh why, oh why, has this happened to me”? You obviously feel you were owed protection from Covid by YHVH. Humble yourself, oh mighty one. Who are you to demand this? Even the apostle Paul tells us that he is afflicted with illnesses from time to time. Do you seek to elevate yourself over him in your own eyes as well? What a shock that Elohim would afflict me with this terrible pestilence of the gentile masses because I’m so much better than them with all of my Torah keeping, and my ministries, and all my head-knowledge! What a crock! Get over yourself, climb down off your high-horse and start treating people in a dignified and respectable manner as the scriptures teach us to. You are missing the mark of the Spirit and you attack me for calling you out on it.
    Does this mean we are not to rebuke? Not at all. However in my estimation, refutation does not give us the right to act like a jackass which is exactly what you have done. I consider your attacks against me to be personal and unbefitting a man who claims to preach in the Spirit of YHVH. And what a shame and blemish upon your ministry in my opinion. As a matter of fact, I assert to have proven your error above directly from the scriptures. You did nothing but accost me for it. A righteous man would ponder this response carefully. But how rare it is that a man can humble himself and realize his error.
    In closing, to use your own words I could care less about your thoughts or responses to this. Its time someone rebuked you for the things you have said, the attitudes you have displayed, and the manner you have acted. I am no coward as you say. I will follow no man who professes to speak in the name of Yah, but then acts so contradictorily whether he be Sunday Christian or Messianic. You justify yourself above. You esteem yourself highly, and yet you trash me for speaking out against it. You refuse correction. You have lost your way. You have alienated a brother and in your conceited, self-righteousness, you couldn’t care less about it. You should repent, but I know your type: haughty, arrogant, unkind, and unloving. Let this message ring out in your echo chamber. For this is one voice in the wilderness who fears not to speak out against your hypocrisy. I am no lukewarm Christian. Don’t insult me.

    • Michael,
      There are times when it becomes necessary to rudely awaken the sleeping ‘Saints’.
      We have been on Natan’s blog for some years and have learned much from him and also have become convinced that what he preaches is to help people to discern the Truth so that some might be saved through the Grace of God. Considering that there are thousands of different Christian denominations makes one realize that there is much conceit out there; they can’t all be right.
      If you are convinced that you are a righteous person, why do you take offence to what Natan is saying? I am not righteous and I am not offended, but I am inspired by his words to do better.
      It seems that the return of our Lord is not far away and therefore it is urgent to wake up the people who are lulled into complacency.
      Jeremiah 6:10 To whom should I speak? Whom should I warn? Who will listen to me? Their ears are dull, they can’t pay attention. For them the Word of Adonai has become unattractive, an object of scorn. This is why I am full of Adonai’s fury; I am weary of holding it back.
      BTW, your language is not the most loving for sure!
      Love and wisdom to you from our Lord,

    • Worse than boring, though boring that was. I gave you the benefit of the doubt and read the whole stupid reply, and the only thing here likely to be more of a waste of my time than reading this overly verbose, self-serving garbage you’re trying to project onto Natan, is me giving this reply to you in defense of the spirit of prophecy, which it seems you have not a clue about. It also seems you a have a long ways to go in dechristianizing your “nice boy” self. Good luck!

      “They perish because they did not accept the love of the truth so as to be saved.”

      “…..always learning yet never able to come to the knowledge of truth.”

      Repent of the religion of man, stop searching far and wide for sound instruction, get baptized with the Spirit and fire, and just read and study the Scriptures as though everything you’ve previously been told and believed may not be the truth, Because no doubt much of it is not.

      Also, I suggest you try fasting for 40 days a few times and live a lifestyle of fasting and prayer, like a couple of days a week for several years, in case you haven’t already done so.

      Shaul studied under Gamaliel, but when he was encountered by Yeshua, he shut his mouth and went away for three years and re-studied the Scriptures To unlearn much of what he was indoctrinated to believe.

      Renounce Christianity and Judaism, too, while you’re at it.

    • Michael has made some excellent points! It seems Natan has bought into the covid hype, even the pharmakia jab! Now he uses all the Fauci terminology and tells us his family and wife got the jab! Loss of integrity leads to loss of credibility! Proverbs 10:9
      Why the anger now? Could it be guilt and anger at self as was noted above? Only he can answer that question. We are all accountable to YAHAVAH individually, and as individuals we must decide how and were we spend our time. That goes for blogs also.

      • This is one of the most ridiculous and inaccurate statements that anyone has made against me in the history of this blog. I’m not not even going to dignify it with a response other that to say that I have never attacked you personally, but you have just revealed your true colors in your false accusations against me. Suffice to say, you have now lost the privilege of ever posting on this blog unless it first passes muster with me.

        BTW, I HAVE NOT GOTTEN THE JAB, NOR DO I INTEND TO. What other people do (often against my vigorous objections, I might add) around me is their choice. I’m not a tyrannical dictator dictating what my grown children and their spouses or others around me do or don’t do with regard to the jab and their own bodies. Maybe this is how you run your family and marriage, but it’s not how I manage my affairs.

        Do any other people care to comment on Steve’s off-the-wall and inane comment against me? If so, go for it…

      • “It seems Natan has bought into the covid hype, even the pharmakia jab! Now he uses all the Fauci terminology and tells us his family and wife got the jab!”

        Michael, you’re the one who has lost integrity and therefore has a loss of credibility. According to Proverbs 10:9, you have perverted YOUR ways by making comments here without sufficient grounds. If you had listened to Natan’s messages, you would know that he has not “bought into the covid hype, even the pharmakia jab”, nor does he use “all the Fauci terminology”.

        He neither took “the jab”, nor does he intend to take it, despite the fact that he severely suffered the effects of being infected by the virus, because he does not want to be a “guinea pig of pharmakia”, despite the fact that his wife did get the shot, was infected by the virus, suffered less serious symptoms, and recovered more quickly. He also repudiated Fauci in the strongest of ways.

        You need to humble yourself, remorsefully confess your wrongdoings to Natan and YHWH, be slower to speak and quicker to listen, as well as being careful about whose bandwagon you jump on. Otherwise, you should just shut up and say nothing. Most likely, you’ve taken the side you’ve taken because you also are guilty as charged – “lukewarm”.

        Pro 17:28  Even a fool, who keeps quiet, is considered wise, discerning, if he seals his lips.

  2. Natan it’s like a breath of fresh air to hear a believer express himself honestly and openly.
    But I have to voice one of my two pet peeves, that concerns the “so called gospel”. If someone isn’t preaching the good news of the kingdom, they’re preaching something other than what Jesus, Paul, and the other apostles preached. But that just a reflection of how far away Christianity is from the Truth. FACT: the gospel of Jesus Christ is not good news to the Jew, BUT I’ve been preaching the gospel of the kingdom here in Israel for over 20 years and people hang on every word of it today just as they did in the Master’s day so long ago. And until we all start preaching the gospel of the kingdom, we’re stuck here because the end cannot come.

    My other pet peeve concerns the way “so called Messianic believers” openly disobey the Master by allowing others to “call them Rabbi”. That really gets to me because they don’t realize by doing that, they’re presenting themselves as the Christ….”“But you, do not be called ‘Rabbi’; for One is your Teacher, the Christ, and you are all brethren.” I don’t know how many people actually presented themselves as Jesus Christ over the years, but it can’t be “many, many”. But nowadays we sure have many, many self appointed Rabbis and go ahead and reprove them for it and see what happens. I especially love when they say “Do you really think we shouldn’t call anyone Father?” And I reply, “Look at the Roman Church!”

    • I couldn’t agree with you more on both of your pet peeve points. They’r big pet peeves of mine too. Carry on and upward and onward being salt and light in Israel and being a thorn in the sides of those who hate YHVH’s Truth!

  3. People can’t handle tough love and that’s why they can’t handle the Ten Commandments.
    The Cup of Blasphemies in the hand of the whore of Revelation is a cup of names that have become overly common in the mouths of men, we must never make the same mistake with HaShem.
    Your preaching has hit a lot of home runs.
    Blessings, John

  4. Shabbat Shalom
    Bless you bless you
    I love this
    ADONAI bless you and keep you!
    ADONAI make his face to shine on you and be gracious to you!
    ADONAI turn His face toward you and grant you Shalom!
    Shabbat Shalom
    We love you

  5. Shalom brother,keep up the good work through YAH,may YAH baruch you and keep you always shalom

  6. Shabbat Shalom – Thank you for your message. We need waking up out of lukewarmness. BTW young bucks have taken up the batton, see TeamJesusPreachers on youtube. Is it just a coincidence you wore that sweat shirt, they wear similar. May Yah wake me up out of my lukewarmess.

  7. We need to be careful how we handle Elohim’s anointed servants. I know I don’t need to defend anyone, but I don’t count myself a parrot or worshipper of any other than Yeshua the Messiah, so I’m speaking for myself. That reference alone was a pot shot from the pit.
    I AM counted as a seeker of truth, and Yah has led me to this ministry and showed me very clearly that Hoshana Rabbah is accessorizing the Bride of Yeshua Hamaschiach with the finishing touches before His return. If we want to be without spot or blemish, get over some stuff.

    What I have seen in the church is when someone such as Natan truly gets a Word from Elohim and doesn’t “act” the way some think they should act, they call it flesh.

    Acts 13 comes to mind when Paul and Barnabas addressed the false prophet Elymas. The deputy of the country wanted to hear the word of Elohim and Elymas tried to interfere. Below are the words of Paul:

    Act 13:9  Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Ruach Hakodesh, set his eyes on him, (Elymas);
    Act 13:10  And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of Yah? 
    Act 13:11  And now, behold, the hand of Yah is upon thee, and thou shalt be blind, not seeing the sun for a season. And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness; and he went about seeking some to lead him by the hand. 

    Not only did he call him out, he cursed him. I imagine Paul was spitting a bit here, just saying. False prophets, teachers, preachers and brethren teaching error need to be called out. I for one am glad to see real men of Elohim rise up! This has been a prayer of women as long as I can remember. The mantle Natan and others are carrying is heavy. Few are willing to go the distance. So how about looking at the bigger picture? Yeshua’s bride, (men and women alike); must be everything scripture tells us to be. If you drag your feet and find yourself left behind as the five foolish virgins did, you’ll get another chance, but it won’t be pleasant to say the least. Let’s glorify our Abba Father and make him proud; grow up church! *Note: My husband, James Nash, approved this message.

    • All I can say is “WOW!” Go Deborah…!! (I’m glad I’m not the only one out there with fire shut up in my bones [along with all those who are also filled with righteous indignation by hating the things YAH hates and loving the things he loves], and that goes for my other fox hole buddies who have recently responded on this blog in a similar manner as Donna and James.)
