A little Nazarene Background


This book was written to address over 2,000 years of misconceptions, false teachings, mistranslations, abominations, and blasphemies.


Today the Nazarenes are once again coming to the forefront of religious thought. Many are beginning to realize that the followers of the Messiah were called Nazarenes and were never called by the pagan label ‘Christian’. With modern discoveries, such as the Dead Sea Scrolls, which is a collection of over 800 texts dating back to the time just before Yahusha was born and into the first century, we are learning more about the ‘Sect of the Nazarenes’ that followed Yahusha. These texts catapulted the Nazarenes back into the spotlight and they are some of the only texts dated to that time period! None of the actual books in the New Testament have originals dating to the first century, they did not survive the Council of Nicaea as Constantine had the originals burned to hide the truth of his abominable religion called Christianity. Now we know, for a fact, what the first century believers held true as it is well documented in the Dead Sea Scrolls! That Truth and their beliefs are far different than that of the modern-day believers as we will learn in this book.

This book is not going to be exegesis of those scrolls. My goal in this book is to explore the “heart of the Nazarene”, to define who the Messiah really was building on my previous book Melchizedek and The Passover Lamb. In this book, I want to clearly define what a Nazarene stands for, believes, and in the process, help us all to understand what it means to be a follower of the one prophesied in The Heavenly Scroll by the constellation Virgo… “The Glorious and Righteous Branch”, Yahusha the Messiah. “Nazarene” is derived from The Heavenly Scroll and means “Notsri” or rather ‘Branch or Seed’ in English.

As I pointed out in my book “Melchizedek and the Passover Lamb”, Yahusha was a student of John the Baptist, who was Yahusha’s prophesied mentor. John was also the rightful High Priest of Israel (as the first male heir to the Zadok High Priest Yahusha III who was John’s Grandfather) who oversaw the rebuilding of the Second Temple.

Yahusha the Messiah was the next male heir to Yahusha III after John (Yahusha III was the Messiah’s great grandfather) and was consecrated High Priest of Israel to succeed John through Mikveh. John was the leader of the true sons of Yahuah and they were known as Nazarenes. Yahusha assumed the position of leader of the Nazarenes followed later by his brother Yaakov (James the Just) and then the Apostle Rav Sha’ul. They all were Hebrew Notsri or Nazarenes. Notsri (or Nazarenes) were spoken of in The Dead Sea Scroll as as guardians of the Law, Prophets, and Messiah. They were fierce defenders of The Torah against all attempts to Hellenize it and all pagan influences.

Why is Yahusha Called the Branch?


It is a mistranslation in our Bibles where it says “Jesus of Nazareth” that should read “Yahusha the Nazarene”. Yahusha was from Judea, but the terms "sect of the Nazarenes" and "Yahusha of Nazareth" both employ the adjective ‘nasraya’ (Notsri) meaning ‘branch’. It is referring to the prophecy in The Heavenly Scroll as “Orion the Son of Man who is the coming of the Branch” and Virgo who gives birth to “the Glorious and Righteous Branch”. Then Isaiah, reading The Heavenly Scroll prophesied the coming of the Branch just as Zechariah when prophesying the consecration as Eternal High Priest and the Branch.

Let us begin our journey at the “beginning” with a very simple question:

Why is Yahusha called The Branch?


Most of us will quickly begin quoting prophecies in the Tanakh, foretelling of the Branch in just about every book; Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Zechariah, Psalms, and the list goes on and on. But how did the Prophets know to use that term “The Branch”? Why did all of them use it consistently as they did? Could it be that there was an original “source” for their predictions? Was there an earlier “Gospel” of the coming Messiah that they all read and based their prophetic utterances upon? Was this original source how they knew the Messiah by the term “The Branch”?


And that “source” is the Original Gospel written in the stars! Known as The Heavenly Scroll or Enoch Zodiac (as Enoch witnesses the scroll and drew a diagram of it, on the left, that all the other Prophets studied). In The Heavenly Scroll, the life story of the Messiah and The Plan of Salvation is foretold at Creation written into the stars on Day 4.

Isaiah 46
…9 "Remember the former things long past, For I am Yahuah, and there is no other; I am Yahuah, and there is no one like Me, 10 Declaring the End from the Beginning (written in the stars at Creation), And from Ancient times (before the world was, John 17:5 and Ephesians 1:4 and 1 Peter 1:20) things which have not been done, Saying, My Purpose (to send a human mediating High Priest and King) will be established, And I will accomplish all My good pleasure (the Plan of Salvation written in the stars)'; 11Calling a bird of prey from the east, The man (not demi-god) of My Purpose (the one spoken of in The Heavenly Scroll) from a far country (out of Egypt, Matthew 2:15 and Hosea 1:1). Truly I have spoken; truly I will bring it to pass. I have Planned it (The Plan of Salvation from Creation), surely I will do it (and that ‘Debar’ or Predestined Plan written in the stars became “flesh” and Fulfilled when Yahusha was born, John Chapter 1)



The Branch in The Heavenly Scroll

The Plan of Salvation through a human mediating High Priest and King, is laid out in detail in The Heavenly Scroll. The constellations are pictographs with meaning given to all mankind.

Deuteronomy 3:19

When you look up to the sky (sky is Hebrew 8064 shamayim/Zodiac) and see the sun, moon, and stars (speaking of the Zodiac) — the whole heavenly (Mazzaroth/Zodiac) Creation — you must not be seduced to worship and serve them (signs of the Zodiac), for Yahuah your Elohim has assigned them (the signs of the Zodiac) to all the people of the world (they were created by Yahuah to Proclaim the coming Messiah Yahusha, see Psalm 19, they are not gods).

The sun is a metaphor of the coming “Light of the World” who would be The Branch or Messiah that would show ‘The Way’ to all mankind. 

Psalm 19

2 The heavens (the place in the sky where the stars are located i.e. Zodiac) are telling of the Glory of Yahuah (the Glory of Yahuah is Yahusha! 2 Corinthians 4:6); And their expanse is Declaring the work of His hands. 2 Day to day (The Heavenly Scroll) pours forth speech, And night to night reveals Knowledge. 3 There is no speech, nor are there words; Their (signs of the Zodiac/Constellations) voice is not heard. 4 Their line (Zodiac means line or path of the sun) has gone out through (and seen by) all the Earth, And their (signs of the Zodiac) utterances to the end of the world. In them (the constellations) He has placed a tent for the sun (the Zodiac), 5 Which is as a Bridegroom (Messiah) coming out of his chamber; It rejoices as a strong man (Glorious Righteous Branch/human Messiah) to run his course (of a Wedding). 6 Its rising is from one end of the heavens (Zodiac), And its circuit (Zodiac means circuit or path or The Way) to the other end of them; And there is nothing hidden from its heat.

As the sun moves through the constellations each year, as seen uniquely from Earth, the life of the Messiah is foretold. The story begins with the constellation Virgo who holds a branch of Wheat/Barely in her left hand.

The coming one is referred to in The Heavenly Scroll as The Branch for that reason. All the Prophets of Yahuah were not only aware of the message contained in the stars, they based their prophecies on The Heavenly Scroll. This is why they all use the term “Branch” of the coming Messiah. Below is the message it contains.

VIRGO: A virgin will give birth to a beautiful Glorious and Righteous branch. The seed of the woman will be a man of humiliation to rise to be the desire of nations and will become exalted first as Shepherd then as Harvester. LIBRA: The scales demand a price to be paid of this seed, a stake/cross to endure; the victim will be slain and purchase a Crown. SCORPIO: There is a conflict between the seed and the serpent leading to a struggle with the enemy, the enemy is vanquished. SAGITTARIUS: The double-natured seed (servant/King) triumphs as a warrior and pleases the heavens, builds fires of punishment, casts down the dragon. CAPRICORNUS: Eternal life comes from his death, he's the Arrow of God, he is pierced, yet springs up again in abundant life. AQUARIUS: He pours out “Living water” from on high, humanity drinks of the heavenly river and the Faithful live again, he is the deliverer of the good news (Gospel), Carrying ‘The Way’ by example over the Earth. PISCES: The Redeemer's people multiplied, supported and led by the Lamb, The Bride is exposed on Earth, the Bridegroom is exalted. ARIES: The Lamb is found worthy, the Bride is made ready, Satan is bound, the strong man triumphs. TAURUS: The conquering Ruler comes, the sublime vanquisher, to execute the great judgment, he is the ruling Shepherd King. GEMINI: The Marriage of the Lamb, the enemy is trodden down, the Prince comes in great Glory. CANCER: The great Bride, the two Houses of Judah and Israel are united, they are brought safely into the Kingdom. LEO: The Lion King is aroused for rending, the Serpent flees, the Bowl of Wrath is upon him, his carcass is devoured. The Lion of the Tribe of Judah rules as King.

In The Heavenly Scroll, the role of this Righteous Branch is laid out and the Feast Cycle is foretold as it is the original and most complete Gospel where Yahusha was given Glory by Yahuah as the coming Righteous King.
