About Righteous Warriors

     "And this is the message which we have heard from Him and announce to you, that Elohim is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and are not doing the truth." (1 John 1:5-6, The Scriptures)

     "And by this we know that we know Him, if we guard His commands. The one who says, "I know Him," and does not guard His commands, is a liar, and the truth is not in him." (1 John 2:3-4, The Scriptures)
Who are we?
     We at Righteous Warriors are bondservants of the Master Messiah Yahushua (Christ Jesus) who are simply willing to give all we have to serve Elohim (God). We are committed to turn our hearts to Elohim and stand completely and totally for Him in the midst of a generation that is bowing to idols of money, drugs, sex and selfishness. We resolutely turn our backs on everything in our past lives that we know to be wrong and are willing for Messiah to cast those things out of our lives forever. He shall rule our lives and His Word is our law.

What do we believe?
     We agree unconditionally with our Heavenly Father's Word in the Scriptures, even when we don't like it. If the Word of Elohim shatters cherished beliefs, then we are willing for them to be shattered, no matter how difficult it may be. Elohim's truth is more important to us than personal belief, traditions or the commandments of men. We do not cling to personal interpretations when they are discovered to be such. Once a matter is clearly revealed to us, then we change as fast as possible, relying solely on the Set-apart Spirit of Elohim.

Why are there unfamiliar names being used throughout this web site?
     Many of the names and terms used on our web site may seem strange to anyone unfamiliar with the Hebraic roots of Christianity. For a detailed explanation for our choice of terminology, please see our Introduction to the Scriptures article. In brief however, we have chosen to avoid, where feasible, references of names ascribed to gentile (pagan) deities. This is NOT to say that we believe that using the common names of "God", "Lord" or "Jesus" is some kind of sin. Rather, we are attempting to remain true to the Hebraic roots of our faith and prefer to use the actual Hebrew names.

     For example, "Jesus" is the hellenized-anglicized form of "Yahushua", which means "Salvation". Yahushua never heard the name "Jesus" in His lifetime. He was always called "Yahushua", which is very similar to "Joshua", a common Hebrew name at that time. Good examples of this name, in reference to the Messiah, are in Isaiah 62:11 in the Tanak (Old Testament) and also in Matthew 1:21 in the Messanic Scriptures (New Testament).

     Some people believe that "Christ" is Yahushua's second name or surname in much the same way that we have a second or family name. Actually, "Christ" is a title in much the same way as "President" or "King". This title is taken from the Hebrew word "Mashiach" or "Anointed One," which was translated into the Greek as "Christos" and later anglicized to "Christ". The actual English translation of Mashiach or Anointed One is "Messiah". Once again, using "Messiah" rather than "Christ" is more accurate. Examples of this title in the Old Covenant are Daniel 9:25 and Psalms 2:2. Also, Yahushua claimed this title of Messiah in the New Covenant in Mark 14:61-62.

Who is the target audience of this web site?
     The articles of this ministry are primarily directed at those believers in Messiah Yahushua who have had their fill of "milk" and are ready to progress on to some "solid food". We do not recommend this web site to believers who are still young in the faith, but rather to those who already have a solid foundation in the Word of Elohim and have reached a level of spiritual maturity where they can differentiate between what is of the Spirit of Elohim and what isn't.

     We are advocating, first, a humility concerning our knowledge of Elohim's Truth, and second, a serious and continuous search for Elohim's Truth. His Truth is one, but the mind of man is not capable of totally comprehending it. This means that each of us need to remain humble. The existence of Elohim's truth does not mean that we can know it; admitting our limitations does not mean that we have abandoned the value of Truth itself. Admitting that we will change if new Truths are found doesn't indicate a lack of confidence in Elohim's Truth; it means, rather, that we are open to new Truths as they are found.

But shouldn't we avoid controversy?
     It's important to recognize that all vital issues are controversial issues. The only way to avoid controversial issues is to avoid vital issues. In sharing these Truths, if anyone is offended, we pray that they will forgive us. It is not our intention to cause any strife within the body of Messiah. If we point out the error of man's ways, it's not because we are self-righteous, but because we are charged by the Master to bring the Truth to bear against non-truth. Yahweh's prophets of old were always misunderstood and rejected by the people of their day, and the same fate awaits any who would be prophets today. Every man who seeks to do the Father's will and live in His righteousness is sure to be misunderstood and often persecuted. Nevertheless, we shall count it a privilege to suffer for His sake.
