Deuteronomy 12 Names of God Bible (NOG)
The Proper Place to Worship
12 Here are the laws and rules you must faithfully obey in the land that Yahweh Elohim of your ancestors is giving you as your own. You must obey them as long as you live in the land.
2 Completely destroy all the worship sites on the high mountains, on the hills, and under every large tree. The people you’re forcing out worship their gods in these places. 3 Tear down their altars, crush their sacred stones, burn their poles dedicated to the goddess Asherah, cut down their idols, and wipe out the names of their gods from those places.
4 Never worship Yahweh your Elohim in the way they worship their gods. 5 Yahweh your Elohim will choose a place out of all your tribes to live and put his name. Go there and worship him. 6 Bring him your burnt offerings, your sacrifices, one-tenth of your income, your contributions, the offerings you vow to bring, your freewill offerings, and the firstborn of your cattle, sheep, and goats. 7 There, in the presence of Yahwehyour Elohim, you and your families will eat and enjoy everything you’ve worked for, because Yahweh your Elohim has blessed you.
8 Never worship in the way that it’s being done here today, where everyone does whatever he considers right. 9 Up until now you haven’t come to your place of rest, the property Yahweh your Elohim is giving you. 10 But you will cross the Jordan River and settle in the land Yahwehyour Elohim is giving you as your own property. He will give you peace from all your enemies around you so that you will live securely. 11 Then Yahweh your Elohim will choose a place where his name will live. You must bring everything I command you to that place. Bring your burnt offerings, your sacrifices, one-tenth of your income, your contributions, and all the best offerings you vow to bring to Yahweh. 12 Enjoy yourselves in the presence of Yahweh your Elohim along with your sons, daughters, male and female slaves, and the Levites. (The Levites live in your cities because they have no land of their own as you have.) 13 Be careful that you don’t sacrifice your burnt offerings wherever you want. 14 Instead, sacrifice them only at the place that Yahweh will choose in one of your tribes. There you must do everything I command you.
15 In whatever city you live, you may slaughter and eat as much meat as you want from what Yahweh your Elohim has blessed you with. Clean and unclean[a] people may eat it as if they were eating a gazelle or a deer. 16 But never eat the blood. Pour it on the ground like water. 17 You may not eat the Lord’s offerings in your cities. Those offerings are: one-tenth of your grain, new wine, and olive oil; the firstborn of your cattle, sheep, or goats; the offerings you vow to bring; your freewill offerings; and your contributions. 18 Instead, you, your sons and daughters, male and female slaves, and the Levites who live in your cities must eat these in the presence of Yahweh your Elohim at the place Yahweh your Elohim will choose. There in the presence of Yahweh your Elohimenjoy everything you’ve worked for. 19 Don’t forget to take care of the Levites as long as you live in your land.
20 Yahweh your Elohim will expand your country’s borders as he promised. You will say, “I’m hungry for meat.” Then eat as much meat as you want. 21 If the place Yahweh your Elohim chooses to put his name is too far away from you, you may slaughter an animal from the herds or flocks that Yahweh has given you. Eat as much as you want in your city. I have commanded you to do this. 22 Eat it as you would eat a gazelle or a deer: Clean and unclean people may eat it together. 23 However, be sure you never eat blood, because blood contains life. Never eat the life with the meat. 24 Never eat blood. Pour it on the ground like water. 25 If you don’t eat blood, things will go well for you and your descendants. You will be doing what Yahweh considers right.
26 Take the holy things and the offerings you have vowed to bring, and go to the place Yahweh will choose. 27 Sacrifice the meat and the blood of your burnt offerings on the altar of Yahweh your Elohim. The blood of your sacrifices is to be poured out beside the altar of Yahweh your Elohim, but you may eat the meat. 28 Be sure you obey all these instructions I’m giving you. Then things will always go well for you and your descendants because you will be doing what Yahweh your Elohimconsiders good and right.
29 Yahweh your Elohim will destroy the nations where you’re going and force them out of your way. You will take possession of their land and live there. 30 After they’ve been destroyed, be careful you aren’t tempted to follow their customs. Don’t even ask about their gods and say, “How did these people worship their gods? We want to do what they did.” 31 Never worship Yahweh your Elohim in the way they worship their gods, because everything they do for their gods is disgusting to Yahweh. He hates it! They even burn their sons and daughters as sacrifices to their gods.[b]
32 Be sure to do everything I command you. Never add anything to it or take anything away from it.
See verse 31.
EASTER IS A PAGAN IMPOSTOR!
The Feast of First Fruits dates back all the way from before the beginning of Creation and was first observed in the Heavens. In fact, it is still observed in the Heavens.
The Feast of Easter on the other hand came about through the Roman Catholic Church. At the time it was created and added to the Gregorian Calendar, Constantine the Emperor of the Roman Empire at the time was in rulership.
Some time after YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH’S (a.k.a JESUS CHRIST/YESHUA) Ascension to the Heavens, HIS disciples were baptised by RUACH HA KODESH (a.k.a HOLY SPIRIT) as per Acts 2 on the Feast of Shavuot (a.k.a Weeks & Pentecost). The baptism opened doors for the disciples to start preaching the Gospel of YAH’S SALVATION. The disciples of YAHUSHUA who then became Apostles to the nations began their ministry which was to preach YAH’S SALVATION to the Yahudim (a.k.a Jewish people). Sadly, most of the Yahudim rejected the Gospel and in fact betrayed them (, their own blood, their own people to the Romans (their enemy) just like they did YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH.
YAH Almighty then decided as per Romans 11 to send HIS Apostles to preach to the rest of the world/nations, that is to say, in Hebrew: GOYIM. In English, they are called GENTILES. It all started with Apostle Peter, the ROCK on whom YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH promised to build HIS church and that the gates of hell would not prevail against it. Many Gentiles accepted the message of the Gospel and surrendered their lives to YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH. The Roman Empire was large at the time. News reached the leader of the Empire concerning the spreading news of YAH’S SALVATION. Some Gentiles became confused there by starting up some trouble in the Kingdom. This opened doors for persecution of those preaching the Gospel.
Years later when Constantine had become Emperor of Rome, he created and started what we know today as CHRISTIANITY. He took some doctrine from MESSIANIC JUDAISM and some from Paganism then mixed them together to form Christianity. Many beliefs, traditions which YAH has created within Judaism were rid of as we see today.
One of the other things Constantine did, was to create:
- Shrove Tuesday/Madi Gras
- Ash Wednesday
- Maundy/Moundy Thursday
- Good Friday
- Easter Sunday
- Easter Monday
There is no where it is written in the Holy Biblical Scriptures that we should observe “Easter”!
It is not a Feast of YAH but rather Satan’s!
Ezekiel 8:13-15 King James Version (KJV)
13 He said also unto me, Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations that they do.
14 Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the Lord‘s house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.
15 Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these.
The underlying meaning of Easter is related to Nimrod and his family. It is more to do with sun-worship, moon-worship and fertility. In fact, a lot of evil human sacrifices are made throughout what is called or regarded as “Holy Week” on the Gregorian Calendar. Sexual orgies parties are also held around the world as well. Easter is a Pagan day not a holy day!
Every true child of YAHUVEH ELOHIM should not observe this day but rather observe those feasts ordained as seen in Leviticus 23, amongst other scriptures.
There are more spiritual benefits of doing this than of observing the Pagan holidays.
1 Corinthians 15:19-21 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
19 If we have hoped in Messiah in this life alone, we are to be pitied more than all people.
20 But now Messiah has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. 21 For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead also has come through a Man.

Deuteronomy 26-27 Names of God Bible (NOG)
A Reminder to Keep God’s Laws
26 Soon you will enter and take possession of the land that Yahwehyour Elohim is giving you as your property. When you have settled there, 2 take some of the first produce harvested from the fields in the land that Yahweh your Elohim is giving you, and put it in a basket. Then go to the place where Yahweh your Elohim will choose for his name to live. 3 Go to the priest who is serving at that time, and tell him, “I declare today to Yahweh your Elohim that I have come to the land that Yahweh is giving us, as he swore to our ancestors.” 4 Then the priest will take the basket from you and set it down in front of the altar of Yahweh your Elohim. 5 You will make this formal statement in the presence of Yahweh your Elohim: “My ancestors were wandering Arameans. There were only a few of them when they went to Egypt and lived as foreigners. But then they became a great, powerful, and large nation. 6 So the Egyptians treated us cruelly, oppressed us, and made us do back-breaking work for them. 7 We cried out to Yahweh Elohim of our ancestors, and Yahweh heard us. He saw our misery, suffering, and oppression. 8 Then Yahweh used his mighty hand and powerful arm to bring us out of Egypt. He used spectacular and awe-inspiring deeds, miraculous signs, and amazing things. 9 He brought us to this place and gave us this land flowing with milk and honey. 10 So now I’ve brought the first produce harvested from the fields you gave me, Yahweh.”
You will place the basket in the presence of Yahweh your Elohim and bow down in front of him. 11 Then you, the Levites, and the foreigners who live among you can enjoy all the good things which Yahweh your Elohim has given you and your family.
12 Every third year is the year when you will store a tenth of that year’s crops in your houses. During that year distribute what you have stored to the Levites, foreigners, orphans, and widows in your cities, and they may eat all they want. 13 When you have distributed all that was stored, say to Yahweh your Elohim, “Nothing is left of the holy offering stored in my house. I distributed it to the Levites, foreigners, orphans, and widows as you commanded me. I disobeyed none of your commands, and I didn’t forget to do what you commanded. 14 I didn’t eat any of this holy offering while I was in mourning. I didn’t distribute any of it while I was unclean.[a] I didn’t offer any of it to the dead. I have obeyed Yahweh my Elohim. I have done everything you commanded me. 15 Look down from your holy place in heaven. Bless your people Israel and the land flowing with milk and honey that you have given us, as you promised with an oath to our ancestors.”
16 Today Yahweh your Elohim is commanding you to obey these laws and rules. You must faithfully obey them with all your heart and with all your soul. 17 Today you have declared that Yahweh is your Elohim and that you will follow his directions, obey his laws, commands, and rules, and listen to him. 18 Today Yahweh has declared that you are his people, his own special possession, as he told you. But you must be sure to obey his commands. 19 Then he will place you high above all the other nations he has made. He will give you praise, fame, and honor, and you will be a people holy to Yahweh your Elohim, as he promised.
Write the Law on Stones
27 Moses and the leaders of Israel told the people, “Obey every command I’m giving you today.
2 “The day you cross the Jordan River and enter the land that Yahwehyour Elohim is giving you, set up some large stones and cover them with plaster. 3 Yahweh Elohim of your ancestors is giving you a land flowing with milk and honey, as he promised you. After you’re in that land, write all the words of these teachings on the stones. 4 After you cross the Jordan River, set up these stones on Mount Ebal, and cover them with plaster, following the command I’m giving you today. 5 Build an altar of stones there dedicated to Yahweh your Elohim. Don’t use an iron chisel on the stones. 6 You must use uncut stones to build the altar of Yahweh your Elohim. Sacrifice burnt offerings on it to Yahwehyour Elohim. 7 Sacrifice fellowship offerings, eat them there, and enjoy yourselves in the presence of Yahweh your Elohim. 8 Write clearly and carefully all the words of these teachings on the stones you set up.”
9 Then Moses and the Levitical priests said to all Israel, “Be quiet and listen, Israel. Today you have become the people of Yahweh your Elohim. 10 Obey Yahweh your Elohim and follow his commands and laws which I’m giving you today.”
Curses Which Are to Be Recited
11 That same day Moses gave the people this command: 12 After you cross the Jordan River, these are the tribes that will stand on Mount Gerizim to bless the people: Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Joseph, and Benjamin. 13 These are the tribes that will stand on Mount Ebal to announce the curses: Reuben, Gad, Asher, Zebulun, Dan, and Naphtali.
14 The Levites will declare to all the people of Israel in a loud voice:
15 “Whoever has a carved or metal statue, anything disgusting to Yahweh that was made by a craftsman, and sets it up in secret will be cursed.” Then all the people will say amen.
16 “Whoever curses his father or mother will himself be cursed.” Then all the people will say amen.
17 “Whoever moves his neighbor’s boundary marker will be cursed.” Then all the people will say amen.
18 “Whoever leads blind people in the wrong direction will be cursed.” Then all the people will say amen.
19 “Whoever deprives foreigners, orphans, or widows of justice will be cursed.” Then all the people will say amen.
20 “Whoever has sexual intercourse with his father’s wife will be cursed. He has disgraced his father.” Then all the people will say amen.
21 “Whoever has sexual intercourse with any animal will be cursed.” Then all the people will say amen.
22 “Whoever has sexual intercourse with his sister, his father’s daughter, or his mother’s daughter will be cursed.” Then all the people will say amen.
23 “Whoever has sexual intercourse with his mother-in-law will be cursed.” Then all the people will say amen.
24 “Whoever kills another person secretly will be cursed.” Then all the people will say amen.
25 “Whoever accepts money to kill an innocent person will be cursed.” Then all the people will say amen.
26 “Whoever doesn’t obey every word of these teachings will be cursed.” Then all the people will say amen.
