!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

It’s so simple a child could get it…

Published by Rob Skiba Sunday, October 11, 2015 Mark 12… 28 And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all? 29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: 30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and... 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

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

Published by Rob Skiba February 11, 2015 at 1:59 PM I posted the following to my wall as simply status posts, but these things get buried there rather quickly, so I am putting them into a Note so that I can find them again. 🙂 I also added a bit more to it though… ====================================================== Some people wonder why I talk about the Law so much. With the world, I don’t... 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

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

Historical facts about X-mess and the Church

December 23, 2014 at 1:11 PM The following compilation of historical facts are taken from: http://www.biblestudying.net/churchhistory5.html and are provided here for your consideration:It is a historical fact, that for 200 years after Christ the church did not celebrate Christ’s birthday or any holiday on December 25.

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

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

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. Like in situations such as: Mark 2:15 And it came... read more

Don’t Be An Antinomian (Christian Anarchist)

Published by Rob Skiba May 24, 2014 at 3:00 AM ANTINOMIAN = ANARCHY We are probably more familiar with the word anarchy, but they both essentially mean the same thing. Here is what Webster has to say about Anarchy:    Here is what one on-line resource has to say concerning Antinomianism…  So what does Antinomian mean? ‘Antinomian’ is pronounced [an-ta-nome´-ee-ann].  The... 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

10 or 613?

Published by Rob Skiba May 13, 2014 at 2:16 PM When it comes to “keeping the Law” most of my posts really revolve around the 10 Commandments (and the Feasts). Still, time after time, people continue to come at me with the question/accusation, “Well, are you keeping all 613 (alleged) commandments of the Torah?” as if to try and trap me. Look… NO... 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

God’s Plan For You

Published by Rob Skiba October 14, 2013 at 1:03 AM Many people read my wall and they don’t exactly know where I’m coming from. Am I a legalist? What’s the deal with Grace? Can Law and Grace work together, or are they mutually exclusive, with one being replaced by the other? I’m going to try and break it down as simply as I can. It’s really not complicated: John 3:16 For God... 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
