Peter’s Dream in Acts 10

Oh how many times must we deal with the question of Peter’s dream in Acts 10? Seriously? This comes up over and over again. “But Peter’s dream…” they will say, usually followed by some justification for continuing to eat bacon (or other unclean “food”). OK. Let’s let Scripture interpret itself: ACTS 10: 1 There was a certain man in Caesarea called... read more

!START HERE!

For those coming here for the first time, this site can be a bit overwhelming. There is a lot of content here – much of which may challenge some of the things you’ve believed most of your life. To be honest, much of my own beliefs have been significantly challenged and this site reflects the personal journey of discovery that I’ve been on since about 2010.     What is the... read more

It is divided up into the Short Version and the Long Version.     The Short Version: The following represents a high-level, general overview of my thoughts and beliefs on commonly challenged topics.  The first thing people need to... read more

Double Standard Abominations

Published by Rob Skiba July 1, 2015 at 3:29 PM A typical 21st Century Christian: “THE LAW HAS BEEN DONE AWAY WITH! IT WAS JUST FOR THE JEWS! WE’RE NOT UNDER THE LAW!!!! WE ARE FREE IN CHRIST!! WE ARE NOT BOUND BY THE OLD TESTAMENT!! STOP TRYING TO PUT US BACK UNDER THE LAW!! Now excuse me while I protest gay marriage and accuse other Christians of robbing God if they don’t tithe to... read more

Enough With the 613 Already!

Published by Rob Skiba April 8, 2015 at 2:49 PM I have to tell you… the whole issue of the alleged 613 commandments argument is getting soooooooooo old. Yet, I hear it alllllllllllllllllll the time. I just went through yet ANOTHER e-mail dialogue with someone who was going off on me about that issue, while saying that I was into a mixture of Talmudic, Kabbalistic and rabbinic theology. LOL! Wow.... read more

The IDF, Leviticus 26 and What It Means To “Support Israel”

Published by Rob Skiba March 13, 2015 at 2:53 PM Christians have been and are still being deceived and guilt-tripped into a “We MUST support Israel” mentality. However, we really need to ask ourselves what that actually means – and do so in Biblical CONTEXT and not in geo-political (Zionist) contexts. Recently, Gonz (from Canary Cry Radio) posted a “rant” regarding this... read more

It Doesn’t Get Any Clearer Than This…

Published by Rob Skiba March 4, 2015 at 9:49 PM From Genesis to Revelation, “sin” is clearly understood to be transgression of YHWH’s Laws. And in case that is not clear to you, it is spelled out for us in 5th Grade reading level English by the beloved Disciple, John… 1 John 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.... read more

Finding Fault With Perfection… Or With Translation?

Published by Rob Skiba February 19, 2015 at 3:21 PM Many people like to quote Hebrews 8 whenever we suggest that obeying YHWH is still a valid and needed thing to do as Believers. The problem is they are guilty of two things: 1) Trusting in INSERTED (italicized) English words for their flawed doctrine and 2) Cherry-picking verses out of context. Hebrews 8 starts off with… Hebrews 8: 1 Now of the... read more

Oh Foolish Galatians!

Published by Rob Skiba February 12, 2015 at 10:48 PM Is Galatians the ONLY book in the Christian Bible? I think not. However, to read the usual antinomian responses to just about anything pertaining to the Law of YHWH, you would think it is. I personally have no problem with the book. I love it along with all the others it AGREES with. Saw something interesting today. Did you know that Paul is not the... read more

Can’t be done? Says who?

    Published by Rob Skiba February 12, 2015 at 9:34 PM     Moses said: Deuteronomy 30: 10 If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul. 11 For this commandment which I command... read more

The Need for Grace and the Law

Should Christians Still Keep The Sabbaths and the Feasts?

Published by Rob Skiba January 28, 2015 at 2:19 PM OK. This particular blog is LOADED with information for you to consider. Please take the time to review everything listed here before being tempted to criticize and/or ask questions that may have already been addressed. I’m not going to have time to engage in any lengthy debate or really a whole lot of dialogue. I’ve got a LOT on my plate... read more

Obedience to YHWH is too hard and keeping the Appointed Times is too difficult?

Published by Rob Skiba January 27, 2015 at 12:52 PM Deuteronomy 30: 1 And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither the Lord thy God hath driven thee, 2 And shalt return unto the Lord thy God, and shalt obey his voice according to... read more

The Second Exodus, the Appointed Times and what it means to be “wise”

  Published by Rob Skiba January 26, 2015 at 5:49 PM This is the 5th year for us studying the Torah and we are about 13 chapters into Exodus right now. It NEVER ceases to absolutely AMAZE me what YHWH continues to reveal through Moses! I will write more in the days ahead. For now, I just want to focus on what it means to be “wise,” because it certainly plays a major role in the Last... read more

A New and IMPROVED “Great Awakening” is taking place

Published by Rob Skiba on January 11, 2015 at 6:42 PM When I first started to understand who I am, and I began to talk and write about it, many labeled me a member of the so-called “Hebrew Roots Movement.” I have consistently distanced myself from that label however due to many things that I flat out disagree with that are being taught by some of the more prominent leaders within that now so... read more

“So do you keep all 613 commandments Rob??”

Published by Rob Skiba January 3, 2015 at 2:51 PM People ask me all the time, “Well if you claim to be Torah observant do you keep ALL 613 commandments in it?” This is of course usually done in a smug effort to try and trip me up and eventually label me either a liar, hypocrite, heretic or worse. I can almost guarantee that nearly everyone who hurls that accusatory question has never... read more

“Church Fathers” and the Closing Words of Scripture

Published by Rob Skiba December 30, 2014 at 5:47 AM People love to quote the “early Church Fathers” all the time. Unfortunately, the ones they are choosing to quote are really more like “early Church Children, Grandchildren, Great Grandchildren” and even rebellious step children. The true  “early Church Fathers” are the authors of the New Testament! Yes, they... read more

Divisive or United?

Published by Rob Skiba December 27, 2014 at 2:51 PM Luke 12: 51 “Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division. 52 For from now on in one house there will be five divided, three against two and two against three. 53 They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law... read more

I’ll see your Paul and raise you ten plus… and a Vulcan just for the fun of it

Published by Rob Skiba December 16, 2014 at 2:48 PM Oh how interesting it gets whenever we talk about actually obeying YHWH with Christians. It still astounds me that there should even be a debate as to whether or not obeying YHWH is something we should be doing. Yet, time and time again, we find that it is a hotly contested debate. And within this debate, everyone and their dog wants to throw down Paul... read more

Does YHWH like our X-mess songs and holiday celebrations?

Published by Rob Skiba November 26, 2014 at 2:45 PM Exodus 32:3 And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron.4 And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, THESE BE THY GODS, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. 5 And when Aaron saw it, he... read more

The Aleph Bet of Lamentations 2

Published by Rob Skiba September 25, 2014 at 1:41 AM This is crazy cool! And sort of freaky… So I was doing a key-word search on the phrase “apply of the eye” and found that in the book of Lamentations, chapter 2, the Hebrew is structured such that each first letter of every sentence represents the sequence of the Hebrew alphabet. Check it out… 讗值讬讻指讛蜘 讬指注执吱讬讘 讘职旨讗址驻止旨证讜 讇 讗植讚止谞指讬謾... read more

Twisting and Distorting My “Twisting and Distorting” Note on Col. 2

    Published by Rob Skiba June 22, 2014 at 1:08 AM And so the lunacy continues… http://www.logosapologia.org/?p=5633     In the opening paragraph of the above blog, we see: In Colossians, Paul is addressing a situation quite similar to Skiba鈥檚 own 鈥渕inistry鈥 that also asserts New Covenant believers need concern themselves with the obsolete Mosaic covenant stipulations... read more

Just a Coincidence?

Published by Rob Skiba June 29, 2014 at 9:47 PM So, I was just thinking… or should I say, wondering: Is it just a coincidence that the last prophetic writer of the Old Testament and the last apostolic writer of the New Testament were telling us the same thing? Malachi 3: 6 鈥淔or I the Lord do not change; therefore you, O children of Jacob, are not consumed.  7a From the... read more

God’s Love Language

Published by Rob Skiba June 23, 2014 at 3:00 PM Honey, Remember how I saved you from the bondage you used to live in? Remember how I did many mighty miracles to deliver you from the oppression of your slave masters? Then I took you far away from them and wrote down a few things in stone (with My own finger) to let you know what your new life with Me could be like? Honestly, I... read more

Paul Taught Against Transgression of the Law (a.k.a. sin)

  Published by Rob Skiba May 27, 2014 at 12:55 AM STOP! Watch this video before continuing to read this note:    Welcome back. OK. So, this morning while Sheila and I were listening to the Bible.is reading of the first 4 chapters of Mark, we wondered what the Scriptures would look like if we actually used the Biblical definition of sin.
