Return, Ephraim

My people inquire at their tree and their stick informs them. For a spirit of fornication has led them astray, and they have fornicated from under their God.
Hosea 4:12

Who cares if Noah was naked?

A popularly misread, misinterpreted passage where many have assumed that Ham must've been or done something "homosexual" do Noah. He lusted after his Father? Was something taboo about seeing another man naked? No. The "nakedness of his father", and "father's nakedness is explained by God as: ‘You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father, that is, the nakedness of your mother. She is your mother; you are not to uncover her nakedness. ‘You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father’s wife; it is your father’s nakedness. Leviticus 18:7-8 Alas, things are not always what they seem. A cursory ...

Women and War and Abomination

Deuteronomy 22:5 KJV says, The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth [keli] unto a man [geber], neither shall a man [geber] put on a woman's garment [simlah]: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God. We previously looked at how a geber man was a mighty man or man of valor. The first definition given in the concordance of keli pertains to general things, such as utensils and vessels, and not things worn. So we are after the second definition which pertains to things a geber man would wear: 2 utensil, implement, apparatus: a. implement ...

Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite

Elihu was the son of Barachel the Buzite. If these Hebrew words were translated you would read: He is my God, the son of God Blesses, of the tribe of The Despised. (See Strong's Hebrew #, #, and #) Who was Jesus? He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not.  Isaiah 53:3 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why ...

Mission

Begun in 2008 by a simple word from God, The True Man is dedicated to serving the Church by unfolding the Holy Word and seeking the wisdom, the depths, and the riches of the heavenly images of the sons of God and daughters of Jerusalem to restore the Church back to the promises spoken of in ages past. The congregation of the firstborn has wandered after riches, forgotten its Maker, and gave in to a spirit of fornication. These last days were spoken of by all the prophets. Judgement is coming, and it begins in the House of the Lord.

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are my ways your ways. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
Isaiah 55:8-9

“A woman shall not wear a strong man’s apparatus, nor shall a strong man put on a woman’s cloak, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD your God.”
Deuteronomy 22:5

“the word of the Lord is to them an object of scorn; they take no pleasure in it.”
Jeremiah 6:10b

About

Matthew has been writing since 2002.

He grew up in Portland, OR in a broken, dysfunctional family. Today’s world is a brutal place for men. People are lovers of self, reckless, and dishonorable to their parents. Matt sat his entire youth through church unseen. He wasn’t supposed to make it. Like most others boys in his circumstance, he should have joined gangs, abused substances, used women, cursed the world around him, deemed himself entitled, and detested God. Instead, at age 10 he prayed for salvation.

As the Church suppresses more and more of the truth and society grows in its trickery against the women and its tyranny against the boys, the young men, and the old men, pushing more and more of them over the edge to their own destruction and the destruction of the land, God has led Matt to set his face like emery harder than flint and take a stand. This call was impossible to live up to in his paralyzed state so God put him through a spiritual hell-week in which he was dropped into the Valley of Death and left alone where he wouldn’t see the light of day, know the pleasures of life, enjoy companionship, or feel anything other than pain for the next decade (see Job 33:19-30). He would experience the most extreme physical pain (kidney stones) and soul pain bestowed on man. He would never win gainful employment, marry, have kids, or own anything of value. He’d sleep on garage floors and be homeless with no choice. Even when evangelizing in the sub-Sahara or smuggling Bibles in mainland China, God would have him do it literally on a few dollars a day and rice and sometimes, nothing. Christian men have forgotten that God wants to make soldiers out of men, not self-entitled, pampered whiners (Matt. 8:9-10, 2 Tim. 2:3). Brothers, pain is only temporary.

To date, Matt has been around the world a dozen times, nearly 40 countries, paid for his own education in college and seminary, learned to read the Scriptures in Greek and Hebrew on his own, and authored two works on biblical manhood and womanhood consisting of over 700 pages, 222,000 words, sourcing hundreds of articles and books, and thousands of hours of research and writing over ten years–the equivalent of two PhD dissertations–each with no funding, no commissioning, and no publishing contracts. Because the only approval and help you need to do such things is God’s.
