!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

What Rob Believes

    There are a LOT of rumors going around about me these days. So for the record (and for the newbies in the crowd) I’ve created this blog post. 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

The RIGHT HAND of YHWH is “Salvation.”

Published by Rob Skiba ·WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2019 To be CRYSTAL CLEAR right up front: I believe Yeshua/Jesus is God! Scripture clearly describes this (most directly in Jonn 1) and I believe it. YET, Yeshua/Jesus also CLEARLY stated over and over again (in many different ways) that He was NOT “co-equal” with the Father, with consistent statements that indicate He was subordinate to His... 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 “different Jesus” an offended Apostle and a “thorn in the flesh”

    Published by Rob Skiba January 15, 2015 at 4:55 PM So, I saw this pic in my news feed this morning:     It really got me thinking. Wow! Indeed, we have had a “different Jesus” (Yeshua) being preached to us for a very long time! I decided to look up that passage in 2 Corinthians 11 and was reminded of a study I had done back in 2003, which revealed what Paul’s... read more

What coming out of Babylon looks like…

Published by Rob Skiba January 11, 2015 at 5:26 PM As I am going through the 100+ notes I’ve written over the past few years, it is very interesting to see the journey I’ve been on and how others have reacted to it along the way. When I realized that the gifts of the Spirit are still in effect today and that John 14:12 was true and still applicable to us in the 21st Century, all my Baptist... 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

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

What is love?

Published by Rob Skiba December 11, 2014 at 10:43 PM Whenever post just about anything concerning keeping the commandments, I often hear people tell me that Jesus only gave two commandments for us to follow (as if He decided to trump His Father). Well, the first thing we must consider is this: John 10:30 I and My Father are one. So, right there we can toss out any notion of One... read more

Santa Claus – Defender of our doctrine?

Published by Rob Skiba December 9, 2014 at 2:51 PM A prominent X-mess defending “theologian” recently posted an link to an interesting article while proudly proclaiming Santa Clause is the “Defender of orthodox trinitarian theology.” The posted link is to a website that says… “The best story about him is that he went to the council of Nicaea in 325 and became so... 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

A “cult” or a MASSIVE MOVE of YHWH?

Published by Rob Skiba November 6, 2014 at 2:07 PM I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I am NOT in the so-called “Hebrew Roots Movement cult”. There are many reasons why I say that: Namely, there are those within the officially recognized movement that deny the deity of Christ and His Messiahship. They want to rip Paul out of the New Testament, thinking him to be a heretic... read more

The Deuteronomy 13 Test

  August 14, 2014 at 4:26 PM There is an excellent on-line teaching by 119 Ministries called, “The Deuteronomy 13 Test” that I highly recommend you watch/read. You can do so by going to this URL: http://119ministries.com/the-deuteronomy-thirteen-test   In this teaching, they direct our attention to (as you may have guessed) what is said in the thirteenth chapter of  Deuteronomy, wherein we... 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’s own “ministry” 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 “For I the Lord do not change; therefore you, O children of Jacob, are not consumed.  7a From the... read more

Leviticus 26, Ezekiel 4 and the Fullness of the Gentiles

    Published by Rob Skiba May 18, 2014 at 10:21 PM This past Shabbat, we finished the book of Leviticus. I have to say, Leviticus 26 is such a VERY POWERFUL portion of Scripture:     Leviticus 26: 1 Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am... read more

Obeying YHWH = Doctrine of Devils?

  Published by Rob Skiba May 18, 2014 at 3:52 PM Let me start this off by saying, I have no desire to be at war against any of my brothers in the faith. That is not what this is about. But it has been brought to my attention that a well known self confessed “Bible scholar” (that many of you know) recently posted the following on his wall:   First of all, his take on this comes from a... read more

Will you take the Mark of the Beast or the Sign of YHWH?

  Published by Rob Skiba April 30, 2014 at 1:25 PM Most of us are familiar with the Mark of the Beast. But what about the Sign of YHWH? The Scriptures tell us that it is His Feasts, Sabbaths and Commandments:   Exodus 13: 6 Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, and in the seventh day shall be a feast to Jehovah. 7 Unleavened bread shall be eaten throughout the seven days; and there shall... read more

Twisting and distorting Colossians 2:16

Published by Rob Skiba December 24, 2013 at 11:14 PM What is rather humorous/sad is how Christians will try to use Colossians 2:16 as a means to refute what I’ve been saying concerning pagan holidays: Colossians 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: The problem is their context is completely reversed. Verse... read more

To sin or not to sin? That is the question.

Published by Rob Skiba February 25, 2013 at 11:04 PM Anyone who follows my wall posts, knows the marathon threads that result from nearly any post I make concerning the Law of YHVH. Some in favor – many all to eager to call me a heretic for daring to suggest that obedience to God might be a good thing. All of the arguments posted by Grace only Law haters come with quotes from Paul. So, I thought... read more
