HOLY BIBLE IS AUTHORITY.
HOLY BIBLE HOLDS THE GROUNDS OF TRUTH OF THE ASSEMBLY.
HOLY BIBLE DECLARES YAHWEH’S SPIRIT & LIFE THAT GUIDES HIS ASSEMBLY.
HOLY BIBLE IS TRAINING MANUAL FOR OBEDIENCE TO FATHER’S COMMANDMENT.
We hold the WORDS of YAHWEH, Old Testament and New Testament, to highest esteem, and follow the examples laid down to us by our Master and Saviour Yahshua Messiah. We unite our faith with the Assembly of the Living Yahweh (1 Timothy 3:15, RSB), which is the body Yahshua Messiah founded in the early first century (Matthew 16:18; Acts 2). We abide in the TRUTH and doctrine of the Father taught by Yahshua Messiah. We keep the COMMANDMENTS and FAITH of Yahshua, and OBEY YAHWEH’S sacred WORDS, COMMANDMENTS, LAWS, STATUTES and JUDGEMENTS as commanded by the FATHER. We preach the gospel of His coming Kingdom on Earth to all peoples of the world; and we teach people to keep and to do what Yahweh commanded. We believe that Yahshua will soon return into this Earth to establish the Government of Yahweh that will last forever.
Assembly of the Living Yahweh (ALY) commenced Sabbath worship after our SOVEREIGN MASTER and SAVIOUR YAHSHUA MESSIAH through His Spirit began to instruct His WORD to Brother Godwin Arikibe and his family, and led them to leave The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), where they spent more than 27 years. About 10th March 2014 after they left, the Spirit of Yahshua guided them to commence House Fellowship in the Brother’s residence as they did not know which Church possess the TRUTH of YAHWEH they have been seeking. Suddenly, the Holy Spirit intervened and guided the humble family on how they should be worshipping the Father every Sabbath day. By 13th December 2014 the family was led to step out of their home into public place – where accommodation was rented for worshipping Yahweh on the Sabbath days. The Assembly was first registered with the Charity Commission, U.K. as ‘The Living Church of God’ on the 12th March 2015. About 11th November 2017 after some days of fasting, the proper NAMES [not titles] of the FATHER (YAHWEH) and the SON (YAHSHUA) were revealed to our Brother. This led to prayerfully reviewing and changing the name of the Assembly in line with the Scriptures, and re-registering it with the U.K Charity Commission as ASSEMBLY OF THE LIVING YAHWEH on the 27th March 2018.
As the days progressed, Spirit of Yahweh continued to expound the scriptures to our Brother. At a stage he went out in search of other Assemblies that profess same faith, just to confirm if what he was learning from the Scriptures was what obtains amongst other Congregations [Galatians 1:15-20]. Yahweh showed our Brother the fruits to look out for as criteria to identify the true Assembly. At the end, small number of Congregations fitted the criteria, but they were far located. However, a spacious accommodation for worship was found in Stoke-on-Trent, United Kingdom. Understanding began to unfold on what Yahweh’s Assembly is: the called out people; the Pillar and ground of TRUTH; the Rock and Foundation of worship (1 Timothy 3:15; Matthew 16:18; 7:24-25; 19:17-21; Acts 2:1-47; Mark 2:27-28; Revelation 1:3; 14:12; 22:7,14; Luke 11:28; 8:21; Matthew 5:17-19). Vital keys to worshipping HIM was also revealed e.g. KEEPING THE COMMANDMENTS, and having FAITH IN YAHSHUA MESSIAH (Revelation 3:8-10; 14:12; 22:14). It is instructive that we must first seek the Kingdom of Yahweh and His righteousness, and other things will be added to us. This commandments inform what we are doing as His body.
MARK OF OUR WORSHIP
The mark or sign of our Worship is SABBATH. Following YAHWEH’s revelation to us to come out of the world Church, the Creator of Heaven and Earth, and the seas, and the fountains of waters (Revelation 14:7) opened our eyes, ears and hearts to see His Truth in His WORD. After Yahweh stripped our Brother work off his hands, everything in his life stopped, until he obeyed. In rendering him jobless, Yahweh used the time to minister and inspire His Word into his spirit – day and night. This lasted for three and half years. However, as soon as he OBEYED Yahweh’s call, all the lost blessings were restored.
The Spirit of Yahshua taught that SABBATH is the MARK OF YAHWEH given to all His people. His people must worship Him on His created seventh day, which He blessed and sanctified; and it is upon the SABBATH Yahshua established His Church (Matthew 16:18; Mark 2:27-28; Genesis 2:2-3; Exodus 20:8-11; Isaiah 58:13-14), thus given His Disciples the mandate to follow His example. The Assembly of the Living Yahweh (ALY) was opened to ‘DO’, ‘TEACH’ and to follow the example our Sovereign Master and Saviour Messiah led His Church to follow. Notice, “…as His [Yahshua] custom was, He went into the Synagogue (Temple) on the SABBATH day, and stood up for to read” (Luke 4:16). Yahshua never missed Sabbath worship because it was His custom or practice to be in the house of the Father every Sabbath as He was taught by His earthly parents in accordance to Yahweh’s Ten Commandments. We are led by Yahshua Messiah’s example – “For even hereunto were ye called: because Messiah also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow His steps.” (1 Peter 2:21).
ALY is built upon the WILL of the FATHER and MESSIAH as the rock and foundation of worship (Matthew 7: 21-23, 24-25; Mark 2: 27-28; Revelation 14:6-7). The WILL of the Father is that we keep His WORDs. ALY became a reality after our Brother received revelation of “The Fallen Tower” (“Babylon is Fallen”). He was shown how this world now captured as ‘world of iniquity’ was crashing down unabated. He was directed to follow the example Messiah set for His Assembly: to do whatsoever Yahshua Messiah commanded His Church to do and teach; and to abide in all Yahweh’s commandments as Yahshua Himself kept the Father’s commandments and abided in the Father’s love (Matthew 28:19; John 15:10). Our Brother was further charged to base the Church ministry to warning people to ‘come out of Babylon’ that is steadily falling down. The falling Babylon was depicted as a ‘Fallen Tower’ – a revival of ancient Tower of Babel that is now crashing (Genesis Chapters 10:10; 11:1-9; Isaiah 47:1-15; 48:1-22; Revelation 18:1-24). Yahweh captures the entire world as “Babylon”. Babylon represents this sinful world of iniquity that worship the sun god of the dragon (Satan) who deceives the whole world. Nimrod through the power and authority of Satan caused the entire human race to worship sun god (Genesis 11:1-9). The ancient Babylon governed by Nimrod erected image of the sun and led people to worship it. Ever since, Sun worship had increased unabated through ages. Yahweh scattered Israel because of worship of sun god (Baal or Baalim) worship (1 Kings 18:18; Deuteronomy 4:27; 28:64; Leviticus 26:33). Judah was caught in the same sin of Israel (scattered ten tribes) and was sent into exile in Babylon for 70 years because they also refused to abide by the commandments of Yahweh who warned them against the worship of sun god.
Similarly, knowingly or unknowingly, the mainstream Churches today, predominantly worship the same sun god despite Yahweh’s warning on such sinful act. By the way, our Brother’s three and half years research unequivocally shows that the Sunday worship of today is the same sun-god Israelite’s worship. The reason modern Babylon, the world of the beast is fallen is because mankind, particularly the mainstream Churches have left worship of the true Yahweh and wander after sun god worship, the Beast’s Baal, whom they worship and bow to his image (Sunday worship). The Bible records: “And the beast which I saw … the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wandered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” (Revelation 13:2-4). Yahweh warns His Church against following the beast and worshipping his image. In order to persuade humanity not to succumb to the worship of dragon through his sun god, the Almighty Yahweh gave the three messages – popularly referred to as – “three angels message” to people on earth so that they will be guided to worship Him instead of the Beast [Satan’s proxy] [Revelation 14:6-11]. The message as recorded in Revelation 14:6-11 are captured, thus:
First Angel: “And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear Yahweh, and give glory to him; for the hour of His judgement is come: and worship Him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.”
Second Angel: “And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication” [wander after Satan].
Third Angel: “And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of Yahweh, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascended up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.”
The above call to worship Yahweh and the consequences thereof if one rebels uncovers the revelation of the Fallen Tower, which vividly describes this falling world of iniquity [Babylon]. Yahshua told His Church that those who continue to rebel will be plunged into Great Tribulation and the Wrath of Yahweh that are about to engulf the whole earth. The message of ALY therefore focuses on warning people to: “COME OUT OF HER (Babylon), MY PEOPLE, THAT YE BE NOT PARTAKERS OF HER SINS, AND THAT YE RECEIVE NOT OF HER PLAGUES” (Revelation 18:4; 2 Corinthians 6:17; Numbers 16:26; Jeremiah 51:6-8; Zechariah 2:7). We hereby call men and women to return to our Creator Yahweh who is ready to save the repented soul from sin. We are not ‘playing’ Church! We are not parading ourselves for enrichment of this worldly goods that will soon perish. This world has decayed and is perishing. All mankind is warned to run for their ESCAPE INTO PLACE OF SAFETY – YAHSHUA MESSIAH [Luke 21:36].
In view of the foregoing, members of ALY adhere strictly to Yahweh’s warning in Revelation 14:7, to “fear Yahweh, and to give glory to Him…and worship Him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.” We obey the true Yahweh’s voice who is the author of creation including the Sabbath Day, which He blessed, sanctified, and commanded all mankind to honour and worship Him on the seventh day (Genesis 2:2-3; Exodus 20:8-11). Sabbath is not only set aside by Yahweh to worship Him but also it is a Sign that YAHWEH is the Creator of Heaven and Earth. SABBATH SIGN OR MARK affirms that those who keep it, BELONG TO YAHWEH (Genesis 2:2-3; Exodus 20:8-11; Exodus 31:12-17; Isaiah 58:13-14; Ezekiel 20:12, 20; Mark 2:27-28; Matthew 5:17-19; Hebrews 4:4,6). The authority of ALY that we BELONG TO YAHWEH and YAHSHUA demands our obedience to keep the Sabbath day holy. Our further authority is derived from following the example of Yahshua Who is our Senior Brother, our Saviour, and our Yahshua Messiah leading us into His Father’s Kingdom. Request our Statement of Belief for further insight.
What is Revelation 14:6-12 telling asking us to do? It is telling us to WORSHIP YAHWEH ONLY. Satan deceives the whole mankind to worship him on Sun-god day, called Sun-day, the day not blessed and sanctified by Yahweh, though described to be ‘good’ as others. Only Sabbath day amongst the created seven days is “blessed and sanctified” by Yahweh (see Genesis 2:2-3). Unfortunately, those who insist that they are wise in their own eyes, dishonour His Sabbaths; they await to receive their due punishment for their disobedience. The Bible says they will be killed when Yahshua returns because they are called destroyers of the earth (Revelation 11:18). Polluting Sabbath day is described in the Scripture as destroying the Earth. Yahweh vows they will never be allowed into His Kingdom. They will die violent death (Exodus 31:13-17; Revelation 14:9-11; Revelation chapter 16). They will be crushed for ever! This calls for REPENTANCE and a change of heart! Return to YAHWEH and worship Him on His blessed and sanctified SABBATH day. By the way, no other day was blessed and sanctified, except the SABBATH day. This tells us that Sabbath is not ordinary. This is the reason the devil deceives mankind to turn their back against Sabbath day. Furthermore, it is a curse not to call Yahweh’s name from the heart (Malaki 2:1-4). OBEDIENCE is required from every one!
“Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Spirit hath made you overseers, to feed the Assembly of Yahweh, which He hath purchased with His own BLOOD” (Acts 20: 28; John 21: 15 – 18).
We endeavor to feed the Assembly of Yahweh with the WORD of TRUTH who are purchased with Yahshua’s BLOOD. The WORDs of the FATHER is the bedrock of following our Leader and Captain of Faith, Master Yahshua Messiah. Once again, OBEY HIS WORD!
Finally, Brethren, you are called to: “Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Messiah; and shall deceive many” (Matthew 24:4-5). Our job as Disciples is to know the TRUTH, and the TRUTH will set us free (John 8:31-32). Obey the Words of Yahweh today! Obedience will lead to your safety in this last days when we will really need to call upon His NAME for what will be falling upon the earth. Keep His laws, statutes and judgements so that you can find favour in His sight. Yahweh promised to deliver all faithful and obedient servants in the coming terrible days of mankind’s history; and He will cause His obedient sons and daughters to reign with His Son, Yahshua Messiah when He returns to reign on Earth forever!
