For I know the plans I am planning for you, declares יהוה, plans of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and an expectancy. Jeremiah 29:11 TS2009

    2 Corinthians 2:17 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
    For we are not like a lot of folks who go about huckstering God’s message for a fee; on the contrary, we speak out of a sincere heart, as people sent by God, standing in God’s presence, living in union with the Messiah.



    Ephesians 5:11 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
    Have nothing to do with the deeds produced by darkness, but instead expose them,



    There are many darkened churches among us who think they are in the light but are not. We are exposing them and their ways.









    Welcome To UpWord Ministries

    Springing forth into new life is not about the time of year, but a season in our life when we come to Messiah and acknowledge that he is Master. We die to ourself, just as a seed planted must die before it grows. So must we experience death to ourselves, to our flesh so that we can walk in newness of life. To walk in the spirit, not giving in to the desires of our carnal nature.

    Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. John 12:24 KJV

    The scope behind UpWord Ministries

    The vision behind UpWord Ministries has always been to minister to the online community, provide online services and to help other believers in Christ in their online work. We have to start with the first commandment, to love the Lord. Once we do that we will also obey him and will obey the second commandment automatically, to love our neighbor as ourself.

    Our work began in November of 1996 when we registered upword.org and ran it on a virtually hosted account. We never dreamed that our work would expand to several domains and multiple internet servers. Since our origins, our work has expanded outside the scope of a single web site we have moved many of our resources to several of our other domains. We are fortunate to operate out of a world class data center where we can better serve our visitors.

    We now operate on a network of internet servers and many websites that reach believers around the globe. As more people come into a clearer understanding as we have, we are united with thousands of Mishpocah on our websites, groups and pages through social media as well as on our own social media site. Many of which we have met in person.

    The Truth About the Apostate, 501c3 Denominations

    And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. Revelation 18:4

    Watch out, so that no one will take you captive by means of philosophy and empty deceit, following human tradition which accords with the elemental spirits of the world but does not accord with the Messiah. Colossians 2:8 CJB
    The 501c3 church will attack true followers of Messiah. Much of the persecution we suffer will actually come from false church leaders.

    12 And indeed, all who want to live a godly life united with the Messiah Yeshua will be persecuted,
    13 while evil people and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving others and being deceived themselves.
    2 Timothy 3:12,13 CJB


    When a body becomes a business, what do you call that? Most call it prostitution. So I have a question for you. Is your church incorporated?

    The Greek word in our Bible, ekklesia used for "church" was never used to describe a physical edifice. In scripture there was never a president who was appointed to rule over the congregations. The head of the congregations is Yeshua and they are lead by the Holy Spirit. The congregation is to be lead by a Bishop and Elders, this is the biblical model.
    The apostate church employs leaders who after going to school and passing exams are able to hold credentials, however in the early congregation the true believers and apostles were unlearned and lead solely by the Holy Spirit. Neither was the ministry a career move as it is in the apostate churches of our day. Leaders in the apostate church have elevated themselves above the laity and do not hear the true servants of Elohim. They do not have ears to hear or eyes to see.
    Ekklesia is not a part of this world, nor does it submit to the ways of this world as the lukewarm, apostate churches do. Those who are Ekklesia have left the apostate church, they have come out of Babylon.

    The false church doesn't understand why we link to other websites. The false church thinks they are the only ones who know the truth and everyone should come under their dictatorship.

    Our Focus

    The early congregation was marked by; the manifestation of a united ministry by which edification and the meeting of needs were accomplished through the gifts of ALL the brethren. After the apostolic era the congregation moved more and more toward a fixed representation of church offices which separates ministry from the "congregation" and limited significant ministry to the "clergy." We are working to make more saints aware of how the early congregation operated and to expose the false teachings that many churches in our day hold to that detract from what Elohim established in the early congregation. We encourage you to study and learn with us so that you can be fulfilled in the Lord's work in our day.

    We know who the apostate church is, they've revealed themseves to us. In our articles and our forums you will find names of these denominations and false leaders. They don't have enough spiritual insight to recognize a true prophet or the true spiritual gifts that members in the body of Messiah have. If they did, they would renounce their incorporation and 501c3 status. They are 501c3, incorporated businesses that call themselves a church. They are not born again even though they put on an act of righteousness. You cannot be joined to the Lord if you are joined to an harlot. The 501c3 church is the daughter of Babylon. They are a franchise of the government because of their 501c3 status and Messiah is not their head. They have a career in the church, even though scripture clearly teaches against it.

    Many churches in our day are not adhering to the word of Elohim as the early congregation did and we are seeing a great falling away in our day. They put on the form of righteousness, even call themselves teachers and leaders but they are organized in incorporated churches which are lead and directed by the government rather than the Holy Spirit. Those who are truly following Messiah will understand this difference. The leaders of the apostate church work to promote a name world wide and be known by many. This is a carnal mentality. The true congregation works to promote the name of Yeshua only, not a name under a 501c3, incorporated apostate church.

    When you teach the truth, get ready for the apostate church to run you down. Their church leaders will not build you up or attempt to restore people, they will attack them, threaten legal action, cast false accusation. You will know them by their fruit! We've been accused of "taking jabs at the church." Yep, we are! We're hoping she'll end up with a black eye! We mean that figuratively of course. The saints need to know the truth. The scripture tells us to expose the unfruitful works of darkness. We will continue to do this more as the apostate church raises her ugly head.

    Fortunately we've been able to warn some poeple who wanted to join the apostate church. After we shared our article on Denominationalism Incorported with a pastor who wanted his credentials with the cog7 holier than thou apostate church he realized what they were about and didn't join that church. He did register on their forums to try and share the truth with them but they are dull of hearing and refused to listen.

    When we left the apostate church we took a few people with us and will continue to do so. We want people to open their eyes and come out of Babylon. The apostate church will not hear the true servants of the Lord, they do not have ears to hear or eyes to see. They are pompous leaders, full of arrogance even though they think they are humble. They are not spiritual leaders because they are not servants, they take the head and dictate doctrine. This is not the leadership Messiah taught. They do not know what true humility is.

    The early congregation was never involved in any "intense fund raising effort" or considered themself an "enterprise" as the apostate church of our day does. Neither was the early congregation incorporated or even had a central office. We don't boast about the size of our membership or the work we do since the building up of the body is accomplished by Elohim and not by us. Neither do we display a photo of our president on our main page since this work is to glorify Yeshua and not any man on this earth. We put our trust in Elohim for what is accomplished since it is his work and not ours. We are simply instruments in his hands. Any time we try to do Elohim's job, we step in his way and hinder what he is doing in the body of Messiah.

    The church leaders that prefer to build up an earthly name and threaten legal action against those in the body of Messiah do not have the love of Elohim. Neither are they walking in righteousness because they can't suffer wrong but in pride do they lift themselves up and work to protect an earthly name rather than the everlasting name of Yeshua. They are blind guides! Messiah clearly called them a whited wall. They sit in high places even threatening legal action sometimes. We ask you, does your church have a central office? Is it 501c3 or incorporated? If so get out of it, this is the apostate church! You'll know the false churches by this. They live in $200,000.00 homes and yet claim their church isn't bringing in enough money. Messiah didn't even have a place to lay his head!! There are people in need yet they make a career and a business out of the church for their own profit. They are not filled with the holy Spirit. They have "vehicles" to help bring money into "their" church claiming Isaachar knew the times. They use such thinking to get people to give more money. They twist scripture for their own profit.

    Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. Matthew 23:25-28

    The early congregation never focused on how much money they could bring in but rather focused on delivering the gospel!
