Who Is Paul Sides, aka Rav Sha’ul?

Last year I started following the teachings of Paul Sides, who writes as Rav Sha’ul on SabbathCovenant.com, and I began researching what he was saying.

I found it interesting because the Spirit had pulled me out of ‘christianity’ and the deceptions that are taught in Protestant churches; and I was searching for truth.

I had learned the personal, covenant names of the Father and Son, Yahuah and Yahusha.  And I had learned to observe Elohim’s seven Holy Feast Days, instead of Easter and Christmas.

So what Paul Sides teaches about those topics was of great interest to me.

But then I read one of his articles that proclaims that Messiah was 100% human, that He sinned, and that He did not exist before He was born.

Here is a summary of what Paul Sides teaches about Messiah, and the supposed Yahushaic Covenant:

Paul Sides teaches that Yahusha was 100% man, because Mary was impregnated by Joseph’s sperm. He teaches that Yahusha sinned and needed to be baptized by John for remission of sins. He teaches that just like Elohim made covenants with men like Abraham and Moses, Yahuah made a covenant with the man Yahusha.  He teaches that after Messiah became perfected and lived a sinless life as a priest, and died to Himself on the cross, that He was then made divine.

All of that put a huge check in my spirit, which caused me to study scripture to see what it was proclaiming.

Paul Sides also teaches that Yahusha was married to Mary Magdalene, and that He had children. And that His physical body wasn’t resurrected, just His spiritual one.

I found that the Scriptures only seem to be congruent when:

You see the Father as the most High God/Elohim;

Messiah as the Father’s first-born creation, thus He is deity, but He is separate and subservient to the Father;

That the world was created through them;

That Messiah is the image of the invisible Father, who came in the flesh to fulfill His Father’s will, to redeem His set apart people;

That Mary supernaturally became pregnant without being with a man, Joseph;

That Messiah was the spotless Lamb of Elohim, who was without sin;

And that the Spirit of the Father is given to those who have a covenant relationship with the Father through the Son.

Then Messiah’s statements about the Father and His conversations with the Father, seem very normal.

Then Messiah, who was the exact representation of the Father, could be tempted by sin; and could die as the Passover Lamb, and be raised again by the Father.

So while most christians have a distorted trinitarian view of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit; Paul Sides and Ed Moore have gone too far the other way.

The Apostle John warned, “Because many who are leading astray went out into the world who do not confess יהושע Messiah as coming in the flesh. This one is he who is leading astray and the anti-messiah.

John is NOT pointing out that a man would come in the flesh, because that is the case for every human being.  He is declaring that Messiah is deity who came in the flesh.

Paul Sides and Ed Moore are proclaiming that Messiah is not deity, but that He was only a man.  Thus by John’s definition, they are leading people astray and are anti-Messiah.

This study proves that Rav Shaul’s teachings about Messiah are false:

Paul Sides Is A False Teacher Who Says Messiah Was 100% Human

I also read Rav Shaul’s explanations about prophecy, which interested me, as I have studied prophecy a lot.

Here is a summary of what Paul Sides has proclaimed.  Once again he uses The Heavenly Scroll, which is not declared in Scripture, to explain prophecy fulfillment:

He predicted that Messiah would return on September 13, 2007.

He teaches that the false concept of Jesus Christ is the Antichrist of Revelation 13.

He teaches that the man of sin, the Son of Perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2, is not an actual man, but an image of a man, the false Jesus Christ.

He teaches that the number 666 points to Jesus Christ as the antichrist.

He teaches that the ‘restrainer‘ of 2 Thessalonians 2 is the Archangel Michael.

He teaches that the locust of the fifth trumpet of Revelation are Christian preachers who lead people astray.

He teaches that there will only be 10 days of tribulation.

I have found that the prophecy fulfillment only seems to be congruent when:

You understand that the office of the papacy, the Popes of Rome, have fulfilled the prophetic titles of the Little Horn of Daniel 7, the Son of Perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2, and the antichrist beast of Revelation 13.

Daniel and the Apostle Paul and John all described the same thing, the antichrist Popes of Rome rising to power after the Roman Empire collapsed, and the Roman Emperor was removed from power.

So the false concept of Jesus Christ is not THE antichrist, like Paul Sides teaches; rather it is the Popes of Rome, who proclaim to be Jesus Christ, and the leader of the true church.

The Roman Catholic Church is the harlot of Revelation 17, who wears purple and scarlet, who has the golden cup for her Eucharist ceremony abominations, who has shed the blood of the saints.

The Roman Catholic church is the Babylonian Mystery religion, hidden under the guise a christian church.  And Protestant churches are her daughters, along with Islam and other false religions.

Paul Sides false prophecy fulfillment explanations effectively deflect blame away from the Jesuits of Rome, who are the earth beast of Revelation 13.

They control the world via their three city-state corporations of Vatican City, which controls the world’s religious and political leaders; the City Of London, which controls the world’s financial and trade organizations; and the District of Columbia, which controls the world’s intelligence agencies and military powers.

This study proves that his teachings about prophecy fulfillment are false:

Paul Sides Is A False Prophecy Teacher

Recently I learned that Rav Sha’ul is writing his own Bible version.

He posted his version of the book of Galatians, and it is an abomination!

He is justifying adding text to the Scriptures, to explain his interpretation. But you will see that he has changed the intent of verses and added false meanings to them, which is a violation of Yahuah’s command.

He is proclaiming that nobody else has translated the book of Galatians correctly.

A word-for-word translation gives you what the Apostle Paul proclaimed, so Paul Sides is effectively telling you that his version is what the Apostle Paul should have written.  Last time I checked the Apostle Paul’s words were inspired by the Spirit of Yahuah.

Rav Sha’ul is claiming that Scripture was altered to make Yahusha sinless and deity, but what you will see is that it is he who is manipulating Scripture to justify his heretical teachings about Messiah.

Read Paul Sides Is A False Bible Translator

As I continued to research Paul Sides, I found many discrepancies in his personal life, that don’t match up with a supposed Nazarene teacher. 

I think that exposing his false teachings is the primary way to reveal truth about someone, but his lifestyle gives a glimpse of who he is.

This is not gossip, this is simply sharing what they have posted on Facebook for all to see.

Here is a summary of what I found:

Paul and Stephanie both have tattoos of the Father’s Hebrew name, so it’s not a case of having them before they were saved.  Paul dismisses the Torah command about not having tattoos.

Stephanie recently posted that she worked 10 days in a row, which means that she worked on the Sabbath day; which is forbidden in the Torah.

Stephanie has a obvious focus on alcohol, and recently studied to become a bartender.

And the pictures of Stephanie that they have been shared by both of them are inappropriate, as they can cause a weak brother to stumble.

So from my perspective, I am seeing a false teacher, a false prophet, a heretic Bible translator, and someone who excuses not obeying the Torah.

And sadly, I had to find out that Paul Sides is also a liar.

Paul accused me of writing bad 1-star reviews on all of his books on Amazon.com, but if people would just read the reviews for themselves they would see that six of his books have nothing but 5-star reviews, which invalidates his claim. And of the books that have a 1-star review on them, none appear to be from the same person, and none are from me.

Why would he lie about something that people can so easily see is not true?

Here is the link to his books on Amazon, so you can see for yourself. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=rav+shaul

It’s not my place to judge Paul Sides.  He will stand before Elohim to account for his works.  But we are called to discern truth and expose deceptions.

This really isn’t about me being right and Paul Sides being wrong.  This is my calling, to teach the truth and expose the many deceptions of these end times.  I have exposed many other false teachers.

But if the watchman sees the sword coming and shall not blow the ram’s horn, and the people shall not be warned, and the sword comes and takes any being from among them, he is taken away in his crookedness, and his blood I require at the watchman’s hand.’ Ezekiel 33:6

The influence of Paul Sides is growing and many people are being deceived by his teachings.

He has people like Ed Moore on Facebook promoting his teachings.

And he posts them on SabbathCovenant.com

As a watchman on the wall, I will not sit idly by and let them deceive people.

The Spirit has equipped me to be able to expose their many false teachings.

If people will study the Scriptures to search for truth, instead of just defending Paul Sides; they too will see that he is a false teacher.

I pray that you can see the truth about Paul Sides, so that you’re not misled by his false teachings.

Please pray for Paul Sides, Ed Moore and their followers, that they would come to see the truth.

If you see people on Facebook who are promoting his teachings, please share these studies with them and pray for them.

Grace, peace and love to you in Yahuah’s mighty name!

David Nikao

Here are some images that you can save and use on Facebook to summarize his false teachings that are based on The Heavenly Scroll:

Paul Sides proclaims Messiah did not exist before His birth, which denies His deity


Rav Sha'ul teaches that Messiah was born of Josephs seed, making him 100% human


Paul Sides proclaims that Messiah was 100% human and not deity.


Paul Sides teaches that Messiah was sinful and needed to be perfected, this denying His deity

Thanks for all your work people, I too started to fallow him and was about to support his ministries but could not get over the fact that joseph and marry had Yahshua sexually! At that point the Spirit in me red flagged his ministries and I reached out to good people like you who have found more on this wolf in sheep clothing. I only wish the Mormons
and other religions would research like all of You……. Blessing be to the ones who continually search for the truth. I love you all


David June 15, 2019 at 1:24 pm

Thank you for your comment Sean! I created this website for people like you, who are searching for truth and are led by the Spirit.

It’s hard to comprehend how people trust Paul Sides, as Scripture clearly says that Mary and Joseph did not engage in sex until after Messiah was born.

Keep learning and growing in The Way! David


Jim July 11, 2019 at 6:29 am

I just met a friend who believes in the teaching of Rav. He gave me 2 books for a start to read. This friend has many of Rav’s books and support his ministry. The red flags are what you have highlighted. He asked me to put aside what I have learned as a believers all these 20 years and just keep an open mind. Plainly speaking he confirms that Jesus is not God, has sinned… The rest you know. Please continue to post your research so that I can share with others


David July 23, 2019 at 4:25 am

Thank you for sharing your story Jim! I created the website for people like you, who are searching for truth, and who are wanting to help others. Satan hates that people are coming out of Roman Christianity, and are returning to the ancient path of Scriptural truth; so he is causing people like Paul Sides to teach a false Messiah.

The key page is the Paul Sides Is A False Teacher page, which shows that what he teaches about Messiah is contrary to Scripture. On the bottom of the page is a green Print/PDF button, that you can use to save the study as a PDF, print it or email it. http://ravshaulexposed.com/paul-sides-is-a-false-teacher/

So you believe God died In the form of a man. You do know that’s Plato theology . All pagan religions have god dieing in the flesh. Even the Catholic Christianity. True believers believe that Yashuah was a man as your bible states Acts 2:22
[22]Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know. He died and Yahweh raised him from the dead. It’s not Yahweh died and raised himself up nor died as his son and raised himself back up as God. That’s all pagan teaching and you know that yet you back that Roman Catholic Christianity teach. It’s a Christian brainwashing belief that’s been going on since Constantine took over the Christian doctrine and mingled his Babylonian beliefs into it. It’s pagan and your an anti-Christ if you teach it 1 John 4:3
[3]And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. Any who says Yashuah the Messiah did not come to us in the flesh has the spirit of the anti-Christ. God’s spirit moved on Yashuah just as he moved on Moses neither where God but men who did God’s work.


David July 23, 2019 at 4:31 am

By asking that question, it seems that you didn’t actually read the website. I don’t believe that YHUH, the Heavenly Father, died in the form of a man. Here’s the study that proves with Scripture, that Messiah existed beforehand, that He was active in the creation, that He was without sin, and that He is deity. http://ravshaulexposed.com/paul-sides-is-a-false-teacher/

As for Plato, the enemy stole the narrative of the constellations, which are all about Messiah redeeming the set-apart saints; and the enemy has perverted that story to be about pagan gods. But the story in the constellations came first. If you follow Paul Sides teachings, you should know that.

Yahuah has shown me His and the Son’s true names, the trinity and God incarnate (the Messiah is God) deceptions and all the paganism of Mystery Babylon (Christianity). And I also briefly believed that Rav Sha’ul was an authentic believer as he also seemed to also know these truths, until I came upon 2 things.

First he claims that the mark of the beast/abomination of desolation was the eating of ham on Easter. While pork is not to be eaten, nor Easter celebrated, it is in no way the mark or abomination, otherwise nearly everyone would be marked in the Western world, including kids that know no better as well as adults who aren’t shown these truths until later in life such as myself.

But what confirmed that he’s a deceiver is what you mention about his beliefs on the Messiah. He claims he was the high priest Joshua of the OT who was “filthy with sin” headed for destruction until Elohim gave him a chance to redeem himself, that he was Joseph’s physical son, etc., which is all nonsense. Yahusha’s pre-existence, divine nature (being Elohim’s only begotten Son NOT Elohim Himself), and being revealed as the firstborn of all creation (again, He is NOT Elohim but was begotten/born/created) is revealed in Proverbs 8 and Colossians 1.

While organized religion teaches the Messiah is God, Rav’s teaching are just as false just on the other end of the spectrum. And his “ham” mark of the beast just deflects people from the true mark of the beast marked on the forehead or hand which is the cross (which literals means mark) of the beast who is Jesus Christ (the incarnate god of Christianity) who’s translated name literally means earth pig, ie. beast, the Lawless One (Jesus did away with the Law/Torah, Yahusha did NOT).

“He (Jesus) will seat himself in the temple of Elohim (abomination of desolation coming into peoples’ hearts, we are the temples of Elohim), proclaiming himself to be Elohim”. 2 Thess. 2:4. Jesus (false Messiah of religion) proclaims himself to be God, Yahusha (true Messiah of Scripture) does NOT. He told us that Elohim is ONE, His Father Yahuah, and all glory goes to Him alone. Yahuah is the Father AND Elohim of our Master Yahusha. – 2 Cor. 11:31, Eph. 1:3, Col. 1:3.

“Oh great and mighty Elohim, who’s name is YAHUAH (not Yahusha and NOT Jesus)” – Jer. 32:18

“I (Yahusha, Hebrew for ‘Yahuah saves’) come in my Father’s name and you receive me not, if another comes in his own name (Jesus, Latin for ‘earth pig’/beast) him you will receive.” – Jn 5:43

There is NO other name by which we can be saved.. Acts 4:12

“Come out of her [Mystery Babylon] my people, and do not receive of her plagues.” – Rev 18:4


Mister Corey to you January 9, 2020 at 6:31 am

You have a lot of nerve. You claim rav sha’ul is false but use PROVEN FALSE APOSTLE PAUL to make part of your case???

Mashyach WAS fully human. ONLY a human can die! Plus, He had His Father’s Ruach in Him. He was 100% human. A Prophet. THE Prophet Moses said would come and Him we must listen to! You obviously didn’t listen close because you’d reject paul, just like those at Ephesus/Asia did.

I hope you have gained some real understanding since your ignorant rant AND apologized !! No one knows everything and surely you don’t, as your rant clearly shows that. Study!


Mister Corey to you January 9, 2020 at 7:20 am

Yahusha was NOT Yahuah in the flesh. He was His Son. Insert common sense.

Wise Solomon asked “do you lnow the name of the Father and what is The Son’s name, if you know it?” Father AND Son. Separate. Being achad is not literally ONE, as in one in the same. It means Unified/Unity. One in spirit. One in truth. One in love. One in righteousness. Like 2 minds that think alike. Period.
Yahuah was here as Yahusha but prayed to Himself? Really? That is way incorrect.
Yahusha flatout said My Father is supreme. He clearly is saying He is a separate being from Himself.
Not taking anything away from Yahusha but Yahuah is our savior and uses His Son to give us that chance. Yahuah led the masses out of Egypt but used Moses to do it.
You have your facts twisted. Until you learn why paul is to be rejected and then actually reject him…you will never have anything but twisted ideas.
If we cling to paul, who did NOT teach Torah or what Yahusha taught, it is him we serve as master. And we cannot serve 2 masters.

Yahusha plainly stated…I have done nothing in secret. You call Him a liar if you accept paul. Paul claims Yahusha (who he NEVER met, saw, heard before He ascended to The Father) did & said a lot in secret. One is lying! And it ain’t Mashyach!
Paul was NEVER one of His Sheep!! Yahusha said MY Sheep hear my voice.

Paul may have heard a voice, but that self confessed pharisee had no clue WHO’S voice it was. Period.

Sha’ul means : asked for or borrowed.
Evil king Sha’ul ( a Benjamite ) was asked for by the people.
Evil apostate Sha’ul ( a Benjamite) as borrowed by the deceiver to test the people. Did they listen to Mashyach or not?

Look up daddy Jacob’s final character blessing on all his sons.
Look up how Yahusha described a coming deceiver. He gave us huge hints..IF we listen!!

Yahusha told us…you will know them by their fruits. But He didn’t detail what those fruits were! He ONLY said there is Good fruit and Bad fruit.
Paul is the ONLY one to bring up fruits and name them. The ONLY one. He is the ONLY “apostle” ever in question in regards to being a legit apostle.
You will know them by their fruits because they will come talking about the fruits!
Think on that…

Yahuah told us to reject ANYONE who used lies to do His Work. Same with ANYONE who used guile(deceit).
Paul FLATOUT admitted he did BOTH but blamed the people…saying he had to, to win them. WHAT???
We belong to Yahuah, being The Creator’s Creation. The enemy has to win us over, win us away!!

Dead Sea Scrolls named paul: the spouter of lies. Hmm…..

I can go on and on… There is SO MUCH proof about deceiver paul. Just have to study WITHOUT emotion. Truth is obscured by feelings. Feelings are the enemy’s favorite playground…especially in Scripture.

Please go study! Show yourself approved. I care that you do not end up an UNready bride. I do not want you to be plucked with the Tares. If you accept paul, a pharisee by his own admission, you love a liar. His lies are in you. NO LIE shall enter the Kingdom.



David March 8, 2020 at 4:35 am

Where do I say that Yahusha is Yahuah in the flesh? Did you even read my study? https://ravshaulexposed.com/paul-sides-is-a-false-teacher/

If anyone denounces Christianity and accepts it as a fraudulent dogma , which it certainly is, being based on similarities with other pagan religions, then you should also just close the NT entirely in order to clearly hear the personal voice of YAHWEH making His undeniable statements when He identifies Himself as a “single” God and Saviour and not part of a ‘trinity’. He has never spoken of any other ‘existing being’ as His only begotten son and never did He validate or confirm that there was another entity called “THE WORD” being the so-called messiah of the Christian faith. That is all wishful thinking and certainly manmade contradictions.
The title “Messiah” was never mentioned in the entire Bible and certainly not by Yahweh. It is a title created by mankind.
Yahweh never promised to send any other ‘god’ (heavenly or earthly) being as His replacement to do His personal duties as “SAVIOUR” of Israel. This wishful idea is part and parcel of the fraudulent creation of Christianity by Constantine and the RCC.
Yahweh has declared Himself as the ‘one and only’ God and Saviour. Isaiah 43:10-11 – 10“You (Israel) are My witnesses,” declares YAHWEH “and My servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe Me and understand that I am He. Before Me, no god was formed, and none will come after Me. 11I, yes I, am YAHWEH, and there is no Saviour but Me.…
Proverbs 30:4 – “ Who has ascended into heaven and descended? (YAHWEH) Who has gathered the wind in His fists? (YAHWEH) Who has bound the waters in His garment? (YAHWEH) Who has established all the ends of the earth? (YAHWEH) What is His name, and what is His Son’s name? (YAHWEH and Israel/Jacob) Certainly you know!”
Isaiah 42:8 – “I am YAHWEH that is My Name; my glory I will not give to another, nor my praise to carved idols.”
Exodus 23:13 – “ Now concerning everything which I have said to you, be on your guard; do not mention the name of other gods [either in a blessing or in a curse]; do not let such speech be heard [coming] from your mouth.”
David you refer to this NT verse “There is NO other name by which we can be saved.. Acts 4:12 and mention you refer to the name Yahusha or Yahshua being Yahweh’s so-called representative.
You also refer tot – ““I (Yahusha, Hebrew for ‘Yahuah saves’) come in my Father’s name and you receive me not, if another comes in his own name (Jesus, Latin for ‘earth pig’/beast) him you will receive.” – Jn 5:43
Yahweh never confirmed the above statement by the so-called son, claiming to be Yahweh’s representative.
Facts are undeniable as follows:
Yahweh says – Zechariah 13:9 –“ I “ (Yahweh) will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name (Yahweh) and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, Yahweh is my God.
We cannot for the sake of validating a messiah figure, twist en bend the name of Yahweh to accommodate another being as (god or saviour) These titles belong to Yahweh only and No other.


David March 8, 2020 at 4:39 am

Johann, you sound like a follower of Scott Schubbe of Beit Tefillah Productions, who teaches the same concepts and says that the New Testament is fictitious. Here’s a link to my study that address those points. http://comeoutofher.org/scott-shoob-of-beit-tefillah-proclaims-that-the-messiah-of-the-new-testament-is-ficticious/


KellyRae Breining February 12, 2020 at 4:47 pm

Because you do not know or understand your scriptures you have been deceived.


David March 8, 2020 at 4:32 am

Wow, a statement which proves nothing! It’s amazing that you can read the Scriptures on the Paul Sides Is A False Teacher page, and not see the truth.
