We Get Email...

Oh boy, do we get email!  I've posted these here so you can see the types of things people write.  A "bulletin board" approach takes too long editing out the profanity & wastes of space.  This is unfortunate, because I'd love to have one, but I hardly can keep up as it is.  I think, though, that you'll see my selections of letters is balanced & fair.

The following are genuine, unedited reader letters (well, a few obvious typos have been touched up), though all names & identifying specifics have been removed so as to protect privacy.  And I added the hyperlinks to make things easier to cross-reference.

[As you can see, some people are genuinely touched.]

Please Ahyh, go to the press, the Vatican, anything. There are so many who haven't heard your message, which I feel should be ADDED to the Bible. Have you ever thought this? Have you ever realized what you have written down? Its the Digital dead sea scroll pretty much. which i have stumbled upon. I asked for a sign and this was what i got, i couldn't have begged the lord for more. Thank you brother, but there is still so much to be done. If i could help in any way, please let me know. It would be an honor. sincerely the resurrection of Christ embodied in Shane.


I also want to send my modest tithe to you for being such a wonderful vessel for my growth of late. I think I have read perhaps half of your writings (at least those on your website) and the more I read, the more I am certain you have the greatest, most profound, yet the most practical spiritual knowledge around. It is beautiful and clean.  Your heart is very pure.  I have done lots of searching on the web, in bookstores, in churches, everywhere, for people like you, and you are in a class ahead. 


Beloved, BELOVED Ahyh,
 
What you say on your website is so astoundingly Real.  So completely nakedly honest.  So above and below, unified.  Thank you and Thank YHWH for you (yes I know that is redundant).  It is simply breathtaking to me that I found your website now, after so many Googles should have revealed your site to me long before NOW!!  I have spent a good bit of time reading your articles this week.  I've laughed, I've cried, and my, oh, my, I've gotten the tingling rush.  Several times.  Thanks!   
 
You asked some questions in "Connections" that I would like to answer.
 
>>Even if I told you I had witnessed the Tree of Life unfold from the Infinite Time when it, too, was a seed, would that help? 
It would help me to feel more sane about what I witness!  And I would love to hear about it, to expand my own visionary experience.
 
>>Would it matter?
Yes.  Yes.  What you have witnessed is a process of creation that I wanna know about!
 
>>Why would you believe me?
To feel as if I were not quite so alone here with the sleepers!  Because I can feel the truth of your vision.
 
>> And if I did, what would that belief do for you?
That belief would expand my ever-expanding joy. 
 
>>Should I try to describe the waves of cascading bliss that rolls up and down my spine, at times of profound experience?
Oh please, please do go on; it's so evocative.  I'll describe mine if you describe yours!
 
>>Without words that point to a mutual experience, we cannot even communicate.
We most certainly have a mutual experience.
 
>>...if nothing else, they [the visions] are mine, I cannot implant them into you, and thus they must remain private and off the table of our discussions.
And here is where my ideas digress from your thought.  Visions must remain private, or just your visions?  I would absolutely love to know your visions.  I am a visionary; there, I'll admit it, a Bible belt Tennessean/Unity/Charismatic/Hindu/Jesus freak woman visionary.  I feel like I'm standing up in an AA meeting!  Three people of late have said I'm a mystic.  I am devoted to knowing all of the All, in every delicious and outrageous way everything can be known.  I am sharing my visions, my revelatory visions, in my book "I Am Liberty," and shit yeah, I get the idea that I will be changing my name at some point as well.  My name is now Libby but the Yhwh of my being calls me Liberty. 
 
But as to the idea that visions cannot be implanted in another, well, yes, from the perspective of the visionary they cannot be implanted.  But they can be accessed and integrated; where would we be without Ezekiel?  John the Beloved?  The purpose in sharing mine is described in "A Course in Miracles" like this:  The miracle [revelation] minimizes the need for time.  The miracle entails a sudden shift from horizontal to vertical perception.  There is no relationship between the time a miracle takes and the time it covers.  The miracle shortens time by collapsing it.  The miracle worker, therefore, accepts the time-control factor gladly.  He recognizes that every collapse of time brings everyone closer to the ultimate release from time, in which the Son and Father are one."    
 
I will be reading more of the great stuff on your site.  Mine is www.iamliberty.us if you want to visit and read a little of my work.  I've attached a couple of chapters that I get the idea you will enjoy.  
 
Please also send the instructions for making a donation.   I honor your integrity.
 
Thank you so very much for what you do with who you are. 
 
Libby 

 

I used to write you several years ago and thought that I would say hi. My name is Ross and you helped me on my path to righteousness through our Lord Jesus Christ. I used to only read and learn off of your website, but then I learned that I need to do some more exploring of God's word and experience some of it.
 
I found your website by typing in "what is God's real name?" on the yahoo search engine and came across your site. You made things really simple and clear that are kinda hard to understand and complicated. I read alot of your complaints and I used to get mad also and leave your website after reading just a couple things. But, then I would feel like I judged you wrong and I would go back and read the rest of what I did not read. I think people might get upset at you because you are blunt sometimes and say things that people do not really understand.
 
You point out alot of things that people need to remember. I agree that TV is bad. Not all of it, but 95% of it. You are a very smart man and I want to thank you for still being here doing God's work. I am now going to do a 9-month bible school to get me ready to do an internship for full-time ministry if that is what God wants me to do. I think God wants me to do some mission work also. I guess I will find out. The Lord is awesome! He works in ways that are so mysterious.
 
I just wanted to say thank you for everything, you have taught me alot and I am truly grateful for you and your website. May God Bless you in every area of your life. You have really helped me out with your website. Keep up the good work.
 
Love,
Ross

LOVE THIS SITE!!!!!!  I am by profession a licensed massage therapist who was Scripturally trained by Jehovahís Witnesses.  Disillusioned. But thankful for valuable Bible knowledge.  One day as I was finishing up a treatment the thought occurred to me that I might find an interesting site using the Divine YHWH, and voila there you were! Divine providence at work.  I have since sent it to my poor ole born again brother hoping it will help him find some balance.  I love your humor and good sense, Iíve omitted the word common for obvious reasons.  I would love to hear from you 1 on 1 if at all possible, I know youíre a busy guy.  Just want to share one thing for now.  Since I have learned to put my affairs in YHWHís hands my life is a breeze. Chanting THE name is a common ritual while driving, it really works! I find myself singing it to various off-key tunes and some that are even right on-key as well.  I do love my maker and his creation and one of the things I hope I will see in my lifetime is the fulfillment of Rev 18:11.  May YHWH continue to bless and keep you on the web.

Firstly, let me apologize up front if this message is less than coherent, but my mind had been racing since I found your page a week ago, but I didnít want to put off writing any longer.

Iíve been studying religion, mysticism, the occult, and the Kabbalah (my personal spelling choice which I can explain latter) for most of my life, and your page STILL blew my mind.  Some of the thoughts expressed on it are things Iíve been telling people for years, but taken to a deeper level of understanding than I have ever achieved.

I was, and am, smitten with the complete logic and reason your page displays, and how well each idea follows from the previous one.  Iíve seen some, though surely not all, of your ideas expressed elsewhere, but never so concisely and completely.

Your ideas have given me so many new ways of looking at things, that I donít know where to start.

Thank you for the most profound contribution to the Web I have ever run across!

Whoa! I was so thrilled and hugely surprised at the contents of this site. I looked at other components of it, to try to get a better handle about what this site was about, and get the impression that perhaps you are someone who has been inundated in the past with religious dogma that confuses the true meaning of God and the relationship people can have with God. Anyway, I just wanted you to know that it is good to see other people who are willing to take the chance on behalf of God and spread the truth about things that God has given us that we are told are pagan and really arenít.

If you have time, email me sometime. Iíd love to know how you arrived at this point.

Sincerely,


I just finished Stations of the Cross and I just wanted to say THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN!!!! I was truly blessed by your willingness to share God's wisdom with others as myself. I learned many things that I either overlooked or had taken much for granted. My favorite Stations were The Call to Obedience, The Euongaleon, and The Koan. The fact that we cannot fully understand YHWH, we must experience Him says it all. HalleluYah the War is Over!!!! 

Now, if I can only accomplish the death of my will so that it becomes His will living through me, the Joy and Peace that passes all understanding will finally be upon me.

I Thank YHWH for YOU and YOUR willingness to share!!! 


[Yet there are always questions...questions & more questions...Our work is never done!]

I just finished the Revealing Science of God and it is hard for me to visualize HOW you were brilliant enough to put this all together. This truly blows my mind because it is so perfect!!! The "Why" really got me because I have always questioned "Why" but quickly moved away from the question because some of the potential answers were less than honorable to YHWH. Only a sick person would create someone just to worship himself and that is not the God I seek to serve.

Was all this revealed to you by YHWH through meditation on His Name?

Is the Revealing Science of God merely this document, or is it an evolving/growing body of knowledge that you will someday publish?

If this web site blew up tomorrow, how could I continue to explore this body of knowledge? Do you have a publication I can buy with this information on hard copy? 


[Others have their own profound insights to share.]

Greetings in the Name Of God :-)

I was inspired by your site to share a little revelation with you. As with all opinions, you may do with it as you see fit.

While meditating on the NAME of GOD I began becoming aware of my breathing... how the cycles of inward and outward breaths is the only thing standing between life and death... for each one of us. How truly personal and intimate our breath is to us and how GOD is the giver of each life-giving breath... So what does this have to do with the NAME OF GOD? I asked myself.

Then, as I continued observing each breath, I began to notice the sound each was making through my nose, mouth and lungs:

Each inward breath made the sound; YH...
Each outward breath made the sound; WH...

YH... in breath...WH...out breath...YH...WH...YH...WH...

Then it hit me: YHWH... the NAME OF GOD!

Now, I remembered the scriptures telling us that GOD'S NAME IS HOLY... the old traditions forbidding us to even speak it... lest we pronounce it incorrectly. But here I was... Not speaking... But BREATHING it... continually...(and perfect pronunciation every time)!

Perhaps in His Wisdom, HE set things up this way in order to preserve the Holiness of His Name... For me, it has become a constant and continual reminder of not only how close he is at all times, but how much HE cares for me... for ALL of us... throughout each breath of our lives.

As My meditation drew to a close, I remembered a scripture: 'Let everything that has breath praise the LORD...' Suddenly I realized: EVERYTHING THAT BREATHES... Does praise Him...CONSTANTLY!

If you would like to reply, or share this with others I would be honored.

Thank you for taking the time to read my little note.

Yours in HIS LOVE.


[Others are not quite so impressed.]

No one with any intelligence believes this religious drivel. 


Your piece about Jesus being a loser and a coward is so stupid and totally false I wonder how you'll feel when God throws your sorry ass into hell. But of course, your father the devil, has you believing hell and your own evil don't exist.

By the way, you probably have other people doing your fighting for you. I also bet you don't work for a living, but live off of others people's money. Whoops, that makes you a coward and a loser.

[It's particularly wonderful when someone shares how God has been transforming their lives...Though the journey is seldom without bumps.]

...Like I said before, I am still slowly but surely studying the sight and am getting more and more excited when I read on. I would like to share what I have been experiencing lately since practicing meditating and chanting YHVH, then get your opinion of what is happening. 

I started just in small increments, repeating the name YHVH over and over, when I have time. It gives me amazing peace. Anyways, out of nowhere, I have been getting I guess what is called " Panic Syndrome ". I will be at work or at home or at the store, and then out of nowhere, feel an overwhelming sense of doom. I feel like something traumatic is going to happen to me health wise. I don't know if it stems from the fact that there is history of heart disease in my family or whatever but it is a horrible experience when it happens. It as been effecting my work and home life in small but effective ways. A couple of times, it subsided quickly when I repeated YHVH over and over, but I have to admit I don't remember to do it every time. All that goes through my head is "where's the nearest hospital" or "I need aspirin, thins the blood". It sounds stupid I know, but I feel sometimes like I'm losing my mind. You might be asking, "what does this have to do w/ anything?" Well, this seemed to all start happening when I became massively involved w/ my quest for the truth. Is this spiritual, or am I over-spiritualizing the situation? Is it co-incidental or a spiritual event. And if so, how do I fight this? Just would like to know you opinion...

Also one last thing before I go...

I have a few gay friends that say they want to serve God, but feel that they are completely normal and God made them this way. This is hard for me because I have never been able to say to people that what they feel is wrong because I don't know what it is they feel. That is why for years, I have been neutral, I take no stand. What is your take on this and what is the best approach on this??

That's it for now...


[And some take the time to send a detailed, line-by-line commentary detailing my errors...At least they're praying for me!]
Subject: doctrine in "In The Garden"
Date: Sat, 23 Oct 1999 01:49:18 +1000
From: ----------------------
To: Ahyh
Dear brother Ahyh (and I do call you brother, because you believe in Yeshua/Yehoshua/Jesus/Iesous -whatever his glorious name is, the Christ),

However, as you desire my comments, I will give you them. Your doctrine is nice, but I think it comes more from human thinking than Yahweh's holy word and the words of Jesus. Also, I don't think emotions, inner peace, etc. really testifies that all of what you believe is true.  Buddha, supposedly (and I do mean 'sadly'), reckoned himself to have achieved ultimate peace, but his doctrine doesn't seem to fit very well with that of the God of Israel. I'll go through your chapter 11 and comment ONLY on that which I believe Scripture has disagreement with. So although this may seem like a whole heap of criticism, I aim to encourage you to examine the Scriptures yourself with an open heart and find out what exactly God's word says -and if it disagrees with the revelations you have received, perhaps you need to question where they came from. Just because I call out to "Ahyh" doesn't mean that it is you who will answer me -even if I do have the right pronunciation. If I called it out 1000 times in the morning in a chant, would that help me filter out your voice from Southern California from all the Australians here where I live? "Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light." (2 Corinthians 11:14) I propose that it is important to compare all revelations with the Scripture, to see if they really are from God.

Ok... chapter 11.
1. True!
2. True!
3. Yep! But that doesn't mean that he doesn't hate too: "I have loved Jacob, but Esau I have hated." (Malachi 1:2-3) And God is a warrior (Exodus 15:3). In fact the Shaddai in El Shaddai (God Almighty) actually comes from Shadad, meaning 'to devastate, destroy, ravage, ruin'. Obviously "God is love" does not seem to allow for all this to the Western-thinking unbeliever, so although you may perfectly understand that God can be love and yet hate and destroy and kill, your average reader is likely to misunderstand you.
4. I guess so!
5. Yep, the word there means "commanded" or "ordered", but I guess it is fair to say that it was also a warning, because had Adam fully understood the consequences, he would not have preferred to eat of it.  But IF you understand the command only to be a warning to Adam and no more, one might wonder why God created the Tree in the first place -and then why He didn't protect Adam from the serpent/tree/situation completely.
6. True.
7. hmm... I don't find the Scripture references for what you are saying. Many people suppose different things about what the effect of the partaking was. It is true that Adam and Eve realized they were naked and saw this as evil, however it is not right to say that all creation is good. The serpent, for a start, was not very 'good'. The guardian cherub that God created (and most see as a pre-Adam form of Satan) was perfect until wickedness was found in him (Ezekiel 28:11-19). Wickedness is not good. Jesus clearly refers to man as being wicked -think of how many times he says 'wicked and adulterous generation!'. And he called them evil: "If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!" (Matthew 7:11) Jesus' words, God's words and the words of the apostles clearly depict that man (whom God created) has become evil; read the first few chapters of Romans for examples. Brother, I understand your experience from people wanting you just to think like them and repeat parrot fashion what they teach you, but I encourage you to read the Scriptures yourself. Jesus said "Sanctify them by the truth, Your [Father's] word is truth" (John 17:17)
8. hmm...
9. umm... actually yes, all sin and evil will die -but that doesn't mean cease to exist. Some will go into eternal torment. "He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord..." (2 Thessalonians 1:8-8) See also Mt 18:8, 25:41,46, Jude 7, Gal 1:8-9, Is 33:14, Jer 23:40, 25:9, Dan 12:2, Rev 21:8, 20:10...
10. - 11. hmm...
12. - 13. Actually, (I know this is a little picky, but) God, being the Beginning and the End, would already have know about the fall of man, before it occurred. Hence His plan was already devised. Hence "the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world." (Revelation 13:8)
14. Amen, brother! Whatever the problem is, Jesus is the solution. Unless the problem is "what is 2+2?"
15. Okidoke.
16. Imagine the humiliation he went through for us. And he left his glorious home with the Father to die for us and so redeem us. There is no greater love than this -but you know all this, so moving along...
17. Too true, too true!
18. Became perfect? Jesus needed to be perfect already to be a 'lamb without spot or blemish', able to be sacrificed for our sins.
19. Yep, he took our sin upon himself.
20. Umm... only that the Bible clearly says: "But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed." (Isaiah 53:5) So, somebody was being punished and that somebody was Jesus -but not for his own sin of course (because he had none), but ours.
21. hmm...
22. Too right he was, HalleluYah!
23. Fine.
24. Well, actually, God's hand is not the only active one. The hand of "the god of this age" (2 Corinthians 4:4) is also active -and increasingly so as his doom approaches (also my hand is active as I am typing to you!) but this doesn't mean in any way that God doesn't have power or sovereignty over what the devil does or what I or you do. "God works all things for the good of those who love him and are called according to his purposes." (Romans 8:28)
25. I tend to like the idea of not seeing ourselves as ('hopeless') sinners, but we must heed God's warning through the apostle John: "If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word has no place in our lives." (1 John 1:8-10) About this stage brother, perhaps you need to die to ego and self and accept what God is showing you.
26. - 27. Yep, that's all fine.
28. Oops! Brother, you can't just say whatever you believe is 'truly the Gospel'. What you have presented differs quite significantly from the true Gospel that is found in the Bible. And you are really walking on thin ice to claim before God that what you are saying is truly the Gospel.

Brother, in love I advise you to renew your mind according to what God has revealed by His words, rather than listening to whatever your heart/spirit/soul/mind/angels/God/god/Yahweh/Jehovah/Satan/whatever-happens-along suggests to you. But if you do not care about Scripture, join the rest of the mystics of the world each having their own beliefs -be original, different, select bits from here and bits from there and make your own religion- but if you do this then don't come back and tell others that they need to die to themselves. In all of our lives God must increase and we must decrease, and part of this is surrendering to the truth which God has revealed through His chosen Prophets and Apostles. What makes you so sure that your beliefs are from God? The God I know doesn't seem to agree with you! And no, I don't worship the Bible; I worship God who reveals himself most clearly through the Bible. I've had spiritual experiences that testify to the Bible, but I've had ones that I know were not from God, because they contradict what He has already revealed.

If it were not for the Bible, you would not know about Jesus, so what exactly do you believe is a worthy witness? And if you believe that all truth should be revealed only by the Holy Spirit/spiritual experience, why then go and tell others what is 'truly the Gospel'?

I'm praying for you, Ahyh.
God bless.
Love from -----------
