Marshall Koniuchowsky 

Moshe Koniuchowsky

 

Isaiah 57:20 

But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt.
21 There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.

As nonsensical as this next section seems, it must be addressed. Moshe Koniuchowsky has made a huge fuss about his name being Moshe not Marshall. He has stated that he was "forced" to use Marshall before he began his ministry. Odd. We see while in his "ministry" that he wrote a book under his name "Marshall", in 1992/1993. We also see him promoting himself as Marshall after 1996, when he founded Your Arms to Israel. From the bookfinder site.

Originally, teshuva.com was the launching for A.T.O.M. --Association of Torah-Observant Messianics, which housed the teshuva.com/yati website--that is, Koniuchowsky's Your Arms to Israel (YATI) website and also promoted James Trimm's Nazarene.net writings. The www.teshuva.com is the website of the Yeshayahu [Steve] Heiliczer, who was formerly on James Trimm's Beit Din. He has returned to Orthodox Judaism, rejecting Jesus Christ. He states, 

"...Teshuvah Gate AN ORTHODOX JEWISH SITE DEDICATED TO THOSE RETURNING TO A TORAH-TRUE LIFESTYLE"

"It became more and more clear as we journeyed away from Christian Messianism and back towards Torah-true Judaism....the path of Torah-observant Messianic Judaism, also called Nazarene Judaism, for anyone with an open-mind and a desire to find truth, must lead back to the original - to Torah and to Orthodox Judaism. Teshuvah Gate is no longer a "Messianic" or "Nazarene" site. It is an Orthodox Jewish site. The owner of this site no longer believes in the historicity of the "New Testament," nor that Y'shua/Jesus is/was the Messiah..." 12

We also see Marshall and his wife "Roberta" are in various listings as:

1 M J KONIUCHOWSKY POMPANO BEACH FL  
2 MARSHALL J KONIUCHOWSKY POMPANO BEACH FL  
3 ROBERTA E KONIUCHOWSKY POMPANO BEACH FL  

In fact, in defense of his name, Moshe, Koniuchowsky posted his birth certificate to his website, with the given name. The name on it is not Moshe, but Maushe Joseph Koniuchowsky. The certificate was issued 08/32/1995. Further, it states he was born in Manhattan, with his mothers name, Hanah Fulton and father, Leiba Koniuchowsky. 13

Koniuchowsky went so far as to have his friends and co-workers make declarative statements about his name really being Moshe, not Marshall. The gist of the basis for the statements was that there was nothing to gain by these friends declaring the Moshe name information as true, although each is a member of YATI leadership. On the "official" statements that Marshall's name was Moshe, "Eyewitness Testimony" from Yochanan Mascaro:

Rabbi Yochanan Mascaro's Torah Witness  & Testimony for Rabbi Moshe Joseph Koniuchowsky

       by Rabbi Yochanan Mascaro

"....While it is true, by Rabbi Moshe's own public admissions, that he used the name "Marshall" many years ago he did so a) mostly before entering into ministry and b) for certain business purposes, such as pressures placed against him to do so by his own employer, who thought it not a suitable name for business....

... in favor of my brother Rabbi Moshe Joseph Koniuchowsky of Miami, Florida, AND HEREBY ATTEST TO THE FACT THAT the given-name on his birth certificate issued by the State of New York is the Hebrew name that in English is sounded as MOSHE or MAUSHE as given him on September 10, 1957 by his abba (father) Lieba Koniuchowsky and his imma (mother) Chana Koniuchowsky (may they each rest in shalom). 

...in favor of my brother Rabbi Moshe Joseph Koniuchowsky of Miami, Florida, AND HEREBY ATTEST TO THE FACT THAT the name appearing on Rabbi Moshe Joseph Koniuchowsky on his Florida Driver License is "M J Konichowsky" clearly intending to represent that name MOSHE as witnessed by me above.

...HEREBY ATTEST TO THE FACT THAT the bank accounts of Rabbi Moshe Koniuchowsky also bears the name "M J Koniuchowsky" clearly intending to represent that name MOSHE as witnessed by me above..." 14

Another "witness" whose statement was also sent out to his Your Arms to Israel Daily newsletter list, was from his Cantor, Brian Samtur.

Subj: SECOND WITNESS 
Date: 8/7/2003 4:24:31 PM Eastern Daylight Time
From: ravmoshe@bellsouth.net

"...There have been several occasions over the past few years where I have gently rebuked and corrected individuals who have been misled or misinformed by disinformation and misinformation and various forms of Loshon Hara provocation regarding Rabbi Moshe Yoseph Koniuchowski's "true" name both
online publically and privately.

...Baruch haShem YHVH, (Chazzan) Chayym Baruch Samtur (The Hebrew name give me on my Brit Milah Certificate 8 days after I was born)

The only problem is, well, in Samtur's declaration about the validity of Koniuchowsky's name...he spelt Koniuchowski with an " i " instead of a "Y",  which suggests he's perhaps confused over the spelling of the last name, not just the first. 

It seems there are variations not just with Koniuchowsky's first name, but with his last name, which seems to also vary per occasion, as shown in a Google search.

Follow the Pattern Ministries - The Great Debate

... the Great Debate on Audio, Video or DVD As you all are probably well aware by now,
Rabbi Steve Berkson debated Rabbi Moshe Koniuchowski on January 12, 2003. ...www.followthepattern.org/gr_debate.htm 

Marshall posted the "sworn statements" that the name on his drivers license was Moshe, rather...it is apparently now M J Koniuchowsky.

This writer is convinced that since Marshall published books under the name of Marshall Koniuchowsky as late as 1997 and was in ministry under the name of Marshall, the "M" could stand for Marshall. Let's do a comparison, simply because there seems to be a question as to whether "M" could stand for Marshall and Moshe. M> Marshall. M> Moshe. M > Maushe.... 

There is also a more serious issue and that is that Marshall Koniuchowsky has used said driver's license as proof that his legal name is Marshall Koniuchowsky, as shown in Florida legal documents, i.e. Miami-Dade County Clerk Public Records. ["http://www.miami-dadeclerk.com/public-records/]

Records from 1992 and 1995 show that mortgages were written with the legal name of Marshall Koniuchowsky, not Moshe as claimed. For example:

Update March 8, 2005, 3:30 pm: I have removed the address information as a consideration for Koniuchowsky's family and because it is unnecessary in order to prove inaccuracies in statements. This was also updated March 10, at 10:40 with all remaining address information removed. Please see Newsflash! Concerning 'Legal Action' Threats From Marshall Koniuchowsky Also Known as Moshe Koniuchowsky

Marshall Koniuchowsky also issued a statement, which was supposed to give the appearance of a legal document, but was never legally witnessed, dated nor notarized, but still declaring the following:

Declaration Of Name Statement (PDF Document)  

Rav Moshe Yoseph Koniuchowsky

c/o: YATI

PO Box 692999

Miami [33169]

Florida

TO: WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

DECLARATION OF NAME STATEMENT

...3. Moshe Yoseph Koniuchowsky was born the 10 day of September, A.D. 1957. My birth name is "Maushe Joseph Koniuchowsky." Said name is pronounced the same as Moshe, but because my father wanted Moshe and my mother wanted Michael or Mitchell or something similar they compromised on the spelling. Therefore, my parents left my birth name (as listed on my Birth Certificate) as "Maushe."

However, Maushe is pronounced the same as Moshe. Therefore, I use the initials "MJ" on licenses and other legal matters so I do not have to explain why it is spelled Maushe Joseph instead of Moshe Yoseph.

4. I have used the name of Marshall in previous work in the commercial arena after college. I also used the same name Marshall as a Baptist Pastor and was known as "Pastor Marshall." I took that name because Jewish believers in Yeshua HaMashiach (a.k.a. Jesus Christ) were looked down upon. I no longer use the name Marshall.

5. I am generating this document due to the fact that people attack me and/or bring up false charges that my name is really Marshall and not Moshe, and that I am somehow intentionally deceiving people. I deny such an allegation.

6. In the near future I intend to settle this matter once and for all through a formal name change court action in County Court held in Broward County. My name is and shall be legal acknowledged as Moshe Yoseph Koniuchowsky.

7. The State of Florida, etc will issue identification cards to Moshe Yoseph Koniuchowsky with my likeness." 15

From the Biography at YATI and combining it with the 2House.org bio of Marshall Moshe Koniuchowsky, which does not mention his being a Baptist Minister named Pastor Marshall, we see the following events. According to Marshall's wife, supplied via another documented source, when Koniuchowsky, "got saved he was in a Baptist church," and "He was originally ordained as a minister and then later on as a Messianic Rabbi." Unfortunately those details are omitted in the various biographies.

>Attended a modern conservative Hebrew school-Brandeis, Moshe studied such typical Jewish topics as Torah, Talmud, Hebrew language study, as well as a full curriculum of Jewish cultural classes....

>1974, Moshe enrolled in Farleigh Dickinson University, in Teaneck, New Jersey. He graduated in 1979 with a BS in Business Administration....

>1984 Moshe founded "Messiah Is God" Ministries> 2house states >1984 Moshe founded "Messiah Is God" [sic] Ministries

>1985, Moshe was referred to Pastor Howard Corum of Staten Island  ... Moshe was eventually referred to Beth Tefilah, a Messianic Jewish synagogue in Jamaica, Queens where he would spent the next three years...

>1987, Moshe completed a Masters in Bible Missions in an extension program through Patriot University, a fully accredited Bible school in Colorado Springs, Colorado."

>After Beth Tefilah, Rabbi Moshe began attending a church by the name of Pillars of Faith Tabernacle in Flushing, New York

> early 1993, Moshe and Rivka authored their first book entitled "The Great Commission Crossroads Of The Old And New Covenants", with a foreword written by Sid Roth.

> 1993 joined the Association Of Evangelical Congregations bases in Minnesota, and Moshe was appointed the Cluster Leader for the state of Florida. "Messiah is God Ministries" became "Messiah Is God Messianic Fellowships" and joined the A.E.C.

>1996 Moshe founded Your Arms To Israel...

>1998 Rabbi Moshe drew up the plans of the Messianic Israel Alliance along with Angus and Batya Wootten of St. Cloud, Florida. 

>June of 1999 the Messianic Israel Alliance recognized Rabbi Moshe with smicha ordination adding to his two prior ordinations. Rabbi Moshe served the people of Israel from 1998-2001

>Feb, of 2001 Rabbi Moshe founded The Union Of Two House Messianic Congregations along with his closest friend Rabbi Ed Nydle

"The UOTHMC remains the only known True Name FULLY Torah observant affiliation in the world."

Note: Since posting the various articles, the name of Union of Two House Messianic Congregations has been changed to : Union Of Nazarene Yisraelite Congregations, as of  October 26, 2003

According to Koniuchowsky's biographies, he founded Messiah is God Fellowship in 1984. In 1993 he joined the Association Of Evangelical Congregations, which is based in Minnesota, and was appointed the Cluster Leader for the state of Florida. "Messiah is God Ministries" became "Messiah Is God Messianic Fellowships."  He now refers to it as "Messiah is God (sic) Ministries."

The A.E.C stands for "Association Of Evangelical Congregations of Florida; Association of Evangelical Congregations & Ministries", which is located at
14100 Valley View Road, Eden Prairie, MN 55344; (952) 937-2665

A.E.C. is part of Harvest Network International Inc., which is based at the same location.

Alan Langstaff, Harvest Network Int'l Apostolic Overseer, which is also A.E.C., and which does dispense ordinations to individuals after verifying educational backgrounds, via email correspondence stated: 

"Messiah is God Fellowship originally applied for membership in December 1991, they are not currently active however.  As far as I know Mr. Konuichowski was never ordained by our organization, we do not specifically provide Messianic Rabbinic or rabbinical ordinations. "

Pillars of Faith Full Gospel Tabernacle knew Koniuchowsky by the name of Marshall, not Moshe. He was not ordained there and did not receive a rabbinate there. Nor does
Koniuchowsky say in any of his varied biographies where he went to school in order to become an ordained Baptist minister.

Where Koniuchowsky declares in his Union of Two House information, "The UOTHMC remains the only known True Name FULLY Torah observant affiliation in the world." 

I suppose that would depend on what one's definition of being "FULLY" Torah observant is. And what constitutes Biblical obedience. Evidently, in the case of those in these articles, the two concepts are far removed from one another. As is the True Name removed from their knowledge. 

1 Timothy 1:3 

As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine, 4 Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.
5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:
6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.
8 But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;

Patriot University

Proverbs 14:12 

There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

It's noteworthy that when this writer first read his Biography on his website, it clearly stated that Koniuchowsky obtained a "Masters in Bible Missions in an extension program through Patriot University, a fully accredited Bible school in Colorado Springs, Colorado." That information has been changed, depending which biography one reads. Some refer to Marshall as "Dr. Koniuchowsky," although it's not clear to this writer if he refers to himself as such, or it is implied by being called "Rabbi."

Although discussed previously, it's incredible that besides being a diploma mill, Patriot University denies they have or need secular accreditation, although Koniuchowsky states they are fully accredited. From their website: 

To phone Patriot University, call: (888) 578-9332. 

To fax us, use: (719) 589-4916.

To write us, use:

Patriot University

2035 Church Ave.

Alamosa CO 81101" 16

In their admission policies, Patriot University now states, 

"...Patriot University is recognized by the State of Colorado to grant religious degrees and is accredited by the American Accrediting Association of Theological Institutions. This accreditation is through a Christian agency, which recognizes high standards of Biblical and academic training. It is not to be confused with regional accreditation that deals with secular programs and standards..." 17

Regarding accreditation, via Cecil Johnson's accreditation mill:

...Q. What is the purpose of private, non-secular Christian accrediting associations or agencies?

A. (1) They provide and set educational standards to promote quality education among Bible colleges, seminaries, universities, and institutes, etc. (2) They provide an alternative accreditation, which does not seek secular educational standards, philosophies or approval. They are not required—nor do they desire—to be recognized by the U.S. Department of Education or the Council on Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). (3) They promote and encourage the transfer of credits among the schools accredited by their organization. (4) They seek unity and fellowship among post-secondary Christian institutions.

—Dr. Cecil Johnson, AAATI

from Patriot’s Progress Magazet, September/October 2001" 18

Their course description states, "Graduate courses are for students who are seeking a Master of Arts (MA) or Doctor of Ministry (DMin) degree..." 19 

About their Graduate Courses, the website provides the following:

"Graduate Course Descriptions

Each course for students in Master of Arts or Doctor of Ministry programs offers three credits, and is designed to be completed within 3-6 weeks. In addition to the following, some undergraduate subjects may also be available as graduate courses upon request..."

Their "graduate course description" includes 7 courses on the Old Testament, 8 courses on the New Testament, 5 courses on Theology, 2 courses on Biblical Languages [both Greek], 2 courses on Pastoral Ministries, 6 courses on Christian Counseling, 5 courses on Science and History {new} and 2 courses on English. 4 courses are offered under the heading of "Education," with one of those being a set of audio tapes about the "Christian World View." 20 

Of the "graduate courses" offered, which doesn't list Masters in Bible Missions as an option, the only one for Missions is:

From a review about Patriot University:

"Formerly affiliated with Hilltop Baptist Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado, Patriot University is accredited only by the American Accrediting Association of Theological Institutions, an accreditation mill that provides accreditation for a $100 charge. Patriot University has moved to Alamosa, Colorado and continues to offer correspondence courses for $15 to $32 per credit. The school's catalog contains course descriptions but no listing of the school's faculty or their credentials. Name it and Frame It lists Patriot University as a degree mill." 21.

Another critical review of Patriot University states:

"PU was formerly in Colorado Springs CO, but is now in Alamos CO, in a house near the College Heights Baptist Church. The street address ["External Studies Department Bulletin," Fall 1997] is the residential address of PU´s Executive Director of External Studies, Dr Lonnie Skinner (http://www.anywho.com.) The Bulletin indicates how a university could simply relocate to another town: There is no faculty, and credit is offered for "life experience and ministry evaluation". The courses, workbooks, audiotapes, and videotapes can be completed in 2-4 weeks. Tuition is a voluntary, monthly "freewill offering". The only graduate science course is "SC 701 - Biblical Basis of Modern Science". The DMin is offered in Biblical Studies, Pastoral Studies, Evangelism and Missions, Christian Education, and Christian Counseling." 22.

Steve Levicoff in "Name It and Frame It," states in chapter 12, 

PATRIOT UNIVERSITY
6915 Palmer Park Boulevard
Colorado Springs, Colorado 80915
(719) 597-7512
    Claiming to be a ministry of Hilltop Baptist Church, the college charges between $15 and $32 per credit and offers degrees through the doctoral level. Their catalog contains no information on the school's faculty or their credentials. Patriot claims accreditation by the American Accrediting Association of Theological Institutions (see Chapter 3), an accrediting mill associated with Christian Bible College in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. Advertises or has advertised in Pulpit Helps.

And in Chapter 4:

"Accreditation mills have only one purpose: to communicate an air of credibility to degree mills. Witness, for example, the claims of the American Accrediting Association of Theological Institutions, Inc., of Rocky Mount, North Carolina, which charges degree mills only a $100.00 application fee and a $75.00 annual renewal fee to gain their "accreditation." The president of A.A.A.T.I. is Cecil Johnson ("D.D., D.R.E., Lit.D., Th.D., Ph.D."), who is also the president of Christian Bible College in Rocky Mount (a degree mill listed in Chapter 12). Johnson proclaims in his association's marketing letter:

After your school is accredited by A.A.A.T.I. for anyone who wishes to check on your status please have them call [our number] daily between 10 & 12 noon. We prefer to talk with individual [sic] personally rather than write to them. Please do not give our address to any individual, only other schools who are interested in being accredited. Accreditation is between the school and the association . . 
        The basic information we give out is that your school is in good standing with A.A.A.T.I. We do not recommend any school, only lend credibility to those accredited by A.A.A.T.I.

        Think about the ramifications in Johnson's pitch. They will "lend credibility" to any school that pays their $100.00 application fee, but they will only do so by phone - they won't put it in writing. They don't want their address (which is the same address as Johnson's degree mill) given out to anyone except other degree mills seeking their alleged accreditation..."

Patriot University's accreditation is the same source of 'Accreditation' found with the Hargis's varied "diploma's" and "Masters" and "Doctorates." See:

Restoration Scriptures True Name Edition Or RSTNE

Moshe Koniuchowsky or Marshall Koniuchowsky is currently offering his own Bible version called, The Restoration Scriptures True Name Edition. It is in fact filled with Two House theology and many refer to it as Two House Scriptures. It's noteworthy that the Latter Day Saints (LDS and RLDS) refer to the Book of Mormon as the Restoration Scriptures, with their focus being The Restoration Gospel with their Joseph Smith history referred to as their Restoration history, and their bookstore for all Restoration aka Mormon writings available at the Restoration Bookstore.

This is the release for The Restoration Scriptures True Name Edition, which is also available in Spanish:

Subj: DATELINE MIAMI BEACH FOR PUBLIC RELEASE 
Date: 8/14/2003 
From: ravmoshe@bellsouth.net

"...YATI International Ministries is most please to announce the Autumn release of the RESTORATION SCRIPTURES TRUE NAME EDITION. That's right! a real fully 2 house bible with true Names! This unique copy of the Word of YHWH will feature every 2 house reference in both covenants, highlighted in different colors for easy identification and study...In addition, KEY missing parts of scripture used by the first century talmidim from the Septuagint (LXX) and Dead Sea Scrolls (DSS) such as Psalm 151 and references to Messiah's physical resurrection, missing from almost all modern translations, are finally being restored in key passages like Isaiah 53 and in the book of Psalms....The RESTORATION SCRIPTURES TRUE NAME EDITION will be neither all Hebrew or all King James English, but a nice user friendly medium between both extremes. Whether a novice to Hebrew terms, or an experienced Hebrew speaker,...

...YHWH has laid it on my heart, that the time is ripe and that he was calling me to edit and compile this splendorous task for him. I know that I have used up all the excuses I could think of for the better part of 3 years, reminding Abba that I'm not an editor, or book publisher, or a wealthy man......just a prophetic-teacher, rabbi and writer. But He has given me no choice. I need to birth this splendorous tool with the guidance, unction and empowerment provided by the blessed Ruach Ha Kodesh..."

We can assume that the united translation skills of YATI staff and perhaps even Tom Mitchell and Ed Nydle and Andrew Roth may have been utilized for The Restoration Scriptures True Name Edition (RSTNE). Some thoughts about this 'translation' were posted to a popular messianic forum:

Just when we thought there would be nothing "new", and the word "plagarism" was thought to be the the final chapter, we now have another "new" version.

1]From the first word: Timothy correctly rendered in it's transliterated form is TimOtheous not Timtheous.

2] If you put the vowel pointings from the Masoretic text under the Hebrew Name of the Messiah, which they have as Yod-Hey-Vav-Shin-Ayin, it will be pronounced Yehoshua not Yahshua as the "translator" pronounces it.

3] The usage of the Yiddish "bubbe" for grandmother instead of the Hebrew word savta, which can not be found in a Biblical Hebrew lexicon.

4] Eunike, Phugellos, Hermogenes, Onesiphoros, and the incorrect rendering of Timothy [Timtheous] are Greek words. What happened to the attitude that all things 'hellenistic' were pagan? [Hebrew chauvinism]

5] Romiyah is neither Hebrew or Greek, and possibly could have come by direct "revelation". There is a Hebrew word that is close to it, and since all of the TOGT can say that Jesus and zeus are the same, I think that I will use this word to express my final feelings in closing this review:

Strong's Number: 07423 hymr from (07411) Transliterated Word: R@miyah
Phonetic Spelling: rem-ee-yaw' Parts of Speech: Noun Feminine
Definition: laxness, slackness, slackening, deceit, treachery
King James Word Usage - Total: 15 deceitful 4, deceitfully 3, deceit 2, slothful 2, false 1, guile 1, idle 1, slack 1
================
* quote: "Don't be frightened by the Hebrew words. It's a great way to learn basis Hebrew". To borrow Steve's word - if you use the "mishagosh" of Hebrew, Yiddish, Isalam, and English within this text you can learn to translate your own version, too!

* at first glance I was reminded of the tower of Babel revisited.

* verse 5 - bubbe? Yiddish. Eunike? google search revealed Eunike is a German name and is also associated with the occult and with islam.

* verse 17 - Romiyah - google search turned up only Islamic usage of this name.

Comment: I wonder what Moshe's scholarly notes will be like? Moshe made the comment the other day that he was working 16 hours a day to finish up his new version - maybe he should ease up and take a couple of hebrew and greek classes - might make his "translating" go faster
==============

A member of one Messianic forum, issued this response after the following statement by Marshall Koniuchowsky was posted to the internet:

"This is why TRUE BELIEVERS who do not want to identify with the mockers of our Messiah, REFUSE AND SHOULD REFUSE THE BLASPHEMOUS TALMUDIC MONIKER OF YESHU OR YESHUA. It is not the Aramaic contraction it is the devil's contraction and the name of mockery TO THIS DAY by unbelieving Judah!"

The members response read as follows:

First of all, I think that Marshall needs to go back to the lexicon that he used to do his "translation" with, the same lexicon that did not list the Hebrew word for grandmother [savta] so he had to substitute bubbe [yiddish] instead, and type in the numbers #3442 / #3443 and he will be suprised to find that the Name Yeshua, is in fact a Hebrew Biblical name, a short form of Yehoshua.[ Yehowah is salvation] Did the devil add that same "contraction" to the Inspired Word of God as well? So much for scholarship. Maybe Marshall should examine the meaning of the Hebrew term b'Shem, and he may find out that it is not about a name, as much as it is about your actions in representing the name as in likeness and character, because in that
area, he is falling short.

P.S.

Even non believing scholars and archaeologists are familiar with the Name Yeshua:

...Why is the Restoration Scriptures True Name Edition  different than others? Answer: it is fully 2 house, highlighting all references to Yisrael in both covenants both before and after the split.

  • The Restoration Scriptures True Name Edition preserves the true names in Hebrew and balances the Hebraic terms with a more familiar English text format.
  • The Restoration Scriptures True Name Edition translation follows neither the Greek nor Aramaic text exclusively but through prayer and wisdom uses what fits the plain context. Context context context.
  • Restoration Scriptures True Name Edition adds back into the text missing texts confirmed in 2 or 3 places such as the LXX, Dead Sea Scrolls and Brit Chadasha. The text does not delete any scripture, while restoring scriptures that were part of the first century texts.....
  • Restoration Scriptures True Name Edition will have a in depth understanding of Galutyah!..." 23
Rather than an actual translation, it appears in the name of 'context' that what fits the desired passage will be determined by Koniuchowsky. Unlike what Koniuchowsky asserts concerning missing passages, God is more than able to preserve His Word.  For More on the Restoration Scriptures True Name Edition See Restoration Scriptures

Koniuchowsky has advertised his website as "Your Arms to Israel, Prophetic Teaching Ministry of Rabbi Moshe Koniuchowsky for both Houses of Messianic Nazarene Yisrael..." Marshall has often dabbled in prophecy, which has yet to come to pass. But then, he also promotes various false prophets, such as Michael Rood and kabbalists and other likeminded individuals. Birds of a feather....

Psalm 2:1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. 4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

you will ever make in your life!
Don't let this opportunity to be saved pass you by.

If you don't know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, and would like some help understanding His gift of eternal salvation, please contact us. Saying a prayer won't save you. Prayer is merely expressing to God how you feel. Believing and repenting are just the beginning of walking with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
