Yom Rvi'i, 20 Av 5776 — יוֹם רְבִיעִי כ אָב ה' תשעו


In essence, an iconoclast is someone who destroys religious images (idols).

At The Iconoclast, we declare that an iconoclast is also one who challenges long–held beliefs and world–views (known as paradigms)!


The Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary defines "iconoclast" as follows:

Function: noun

Etymology: Medieval Latin iconoclastes, from the Middle Greek eikonoklastEs, literally, image destroyer, from Greek eikonoklan to break.

1: a person who destroys religious images or opposes their veneration
2: a person who attacks settled beliefs or institutions


At The Iconoclast, we believe that
THE UNADULTERATED PURSUIT OF TRUTH
CAN BEST BE ACCOMPLISHED
WITHOUT THE SELF–IMPOSED RESTRAINT
OF FEARING THE CONSEQUENCES!

We make no apology for holding to a world view (belief system, paradigm) centered in the authority of the Hebrew Scriptures (aka Tanakh, the 5 books of Moses (aka Torah - the 'T' in Tanakh), the writings of the prophets (aka Neviim - the 'N' in Tanakh), and the writings (aka ktuvim - the 'KH' in Tanakh)).

We make no apology for holding to the belief in the central Israelite Messiah (Mashiach), that one person selectively anointed by יְהֹוָה   [YehoVaH] to call the nation of Israel to return to the Torah of יְהֹוָה   [YehoVaH].

Because we believe in the authority of the Hebrew Scriptures, we hold that there was a specific timeline given as to the appearance of that Messiah (see Daniel 9).

Moreover, we hold that the person Yeshua of Nazareth is the only historical person that could possibly have appeared at that specifically appointed time (see our page Can Mashiach Promised To Israel Actually Be Yeshua of Nazareth? for more information).

However, please be advised that holding Yeshua of Nazareth as the promised Mashiach to Israel does not mean adherence to what is known as the "New Testament", nor especially to calling "Holy Scripture" the majority of its books which are attributed to the false apostle, Saul of Tarsus (for more information, see our page, Paul, the false apostle).

It is our belief that to hold Yeshua as the Messiah of Israel is to understand that the predominant purpose for The Messiah was to have been to challenge the people of Israel to Turn/Return To Following The Torah of יְהֹוָה   [YehoVaH]; not to call it "old", nor to seek out a new religion based upon "Scriptural" references which predominantly quote a Greek Translation (Septuagint) instead of Hebrew Scriptures), nor to adhere (or succumb) to the easy teachings of one proclaiming first–hand knowledge of that Mashiach but having never met Him! (of course, we are referring to the self-proclaimed apostle, Saul of Tarsus).


We make no apology for desiring to have open minds to discover truths where we also may not have previously ventured.

Our Central Prayer Is:

יְהֹוָה   [YehoVaH],

SHOW US THE TRUTH

regardless of the consequences!

This is not a light thing to us.

We must also take ourselves seriously, and understand that no man should expect his request to The Creator to be answered and affirmed positively
unless he first acknowledge the sovereignty of יְהֹוָה   [YehoVaH]

by following Him and
keeping His Commandments!

"For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote of me.
But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe my words?" [John 5:46-47 ESV]


We absolutely reserve the right to be wrong and to learn from our mistakes, to be flexible in our thinking, and yet we are self-assured that our King יְהֹוָה   [YehoVaH] IS TRUE, knowing and expecting that He will lead us in our continued pursuit of truth!

The Iconoclast website is dedicated to the unadulterated pursuit of truth.

We invite you to join us in the search for truth!




  Basic Tenets of
The Iconoclast:
 
  • We live in an age of Deception!

  • It is our belief that the Roman Catholic Church fulfills prophecies found in the Hebrew Scriptures (Tanakh) that directly associate it alone as the last dominate world "empire" (essentially, it is the continuation of the original Roman Empire — as foretold in the Book of Daniel)!
   
  • While many 'Protestants' consider that 'the Roman Catholic church' is 'just a denomination in error', at The Iconoclast we hold to no such delusion!
    In spite of its grandiose claim 'that it is the true church', the institution known as 'the Roman Catholic church' was NOT EVER led by the רוּחַ הַקֹּדֶשׁ  Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit of יהוה [YehoVah])  — it has NEVER KNOWN YehoVah — it has NEVER been a part of the true community of faith found in the Jewish Mashiach (Yeshua)!
  • Just look at the two photos of the pompous pagan 'popes' above — 'the Roman Catholic church' calls them 'vicar of christ', meaning substitute, in place of, 'Jesus Christ' on earth!

  • It is highly significant to know that the place where the 'popes' dwell, the Vatican [taken from the classical Latin root Vaticanus] means "house of divination", i.e. dwelling of demons!

  • If our tenet that 'the Roman Catholic church' (State, Institution, Empire) is the same“Empire” that Daniel spoke of, is correct, it should be expected that it is this same Roman [Catholic] Empire which has perpetrated its deceptive views of history upon the entire world.

  • Of course, that deception would also negatively impact all of 'Christianity', i.e. the “Protestant” Churches (it should be noted how the Protestant/Evangelical Churches have taken (as their own, without challenge) Roman Catholic false doctrines, such as "Sunday (aka first day) Sabbath" replacing the Sabbath Day (Seventh Day of the Week), the pagan sun–god birth celebration transformed into "the birth of Christ" (i.e. Christmas, "the Mass of Christ"), the celebration of the pagan fertility goddess, Eshtar (aka Easter) in the place of Passover, and many other such abominable doctrines and tenets)!

  • The Roman Catholic church DOES NOT WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT its preeminent doctrines are based upon the teachings of Saul of Tarsus, aka 'Paul', Who Was Not A True Apostle of Yeshua ha Mashiach! In other words, 'The Roman Catholic' Entity/Institution/church is not an institution of Yeshua of Nazareth (aka the Jewish Mashiach), but rather upon Saul of Tarsus!
  • To understand the nature of our mortal enemies, we must understand how contemporaries of Yeshua HaMashiach viewed history, particularly that of the universal flood in Noah's day.

We Live In An Age Of Deception!

False Information Abounds — True Faith is rare!

We should expect a shameless revision of history! It is evident that ancient manuscripts were destroyed and/or corrupted, and other distortions of history were presented to keep truth from US.

Thus, much of what we may have accepted as "truth" may actually be lies and distortions!

How often have you heard it said that "Christians" were responsible for "The Crusades"? The fact is that there were Crusades, Inquisitions, etc., but they were not done by True talmidim (followers) of Yeshua HaMashiach.

Those unspeakable horrors were carried out at the behest of official edicts of the Roman Catholic Church alone — including the 600 years of Inquisition, sanctioned by at least 75 continuous popes — and 50 million persons were killed without mercy.
