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 truth about the concept of the ‘holy trinity.’  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 Messiah was 100% man, because Mary was impregnated by Joseph’s sperm. He teaches that Messiah 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, Messiah 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 Messiah 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 Yah’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 Yah.

Rav Sha’ul is claiming that Scripture was altered to make Messiah 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.

Here’s an absurd video of Paul Sides baptizing himself in his tub, in response to this website.

He ends the video by saying, “Thank David, the murderer (hatred for a brother is murder) who has stoned his brother to death for what Yahuah has forgotten… for costing you your eternal life by causing you to do the same thing. REPENT! Your hatred for me is not worth your eternal life for mocking Yahuah’s promise to forgive my sin and remember it no more through Mikveh.”

I do not hate Paul Sides, so his proclamation is unfounded. I grieve that he is misleading people with false explanations about Messiah, and I’m called to expose his deceptive teachings. The focus of this website is his false teachings, not his past life.

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 Yah’s mighty name!

David Nikao Wilcoxson

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

  1. I started reading volume 3 of his books, after a while I just lost interest because he is making claims that seem to be his personal opinions rather than the true doctrine taken from the scriptures. Some of his claims are so wild that they would be laughable. The reason they are not is because he is very clever and manipulative with words and many people believe what he is saying.
    I, like you, study scripture to find the truth and don’t rely on a preacher stood in a pulpit for my information. But it seems that many don’t study, or even read the bible, so are open to deception from people like Rav Sha’ul, or whatever his name is. he condems christianity, as false, but he is a false and dangerous prophet that is leading many astray also.

    • Thank you for your comment David! Yeah, Paul Sides teaches some truth about the false teachings of the Roman popes and shows people how to follow the Father’s Holy Feast Days. But then he misleads people, proclaiming that Messiah was 100% human, that he sinned and became a god.

      As you noted, reading Scripture invalidates Paul’s bizarre claims about Messiah.

  2. I do not know the man and I have read some of his books. I know that his understanding is different than many but whether he is false by his beliefs I can’t say but his fruits will show whether he lives by YAHUAH or not. All of us are asleep like the 10 Virgins but when the Bridegroom comes we must all be prepared and ready to meet him when the cry is heard like the wise ones. None of us have a perfect understanding of what is true but the main thing is we serve our creator and he has given us his son to save us.

    • Randy, have you been misled by Paul Sides into believing that Messiah was 100% human, that he sinned and became a god? Scripture proclaims a very different story, which makes Rav Shaul a false teacher.

  3. Sides has made an impact on the lives of many in the messages that he conveys. Some comments about his teachings are misinterpreted, misunderstood, and misquoted.
    The foss translations of the Latins, Romans, and Greeks, enemies to the Hebrew people and sun-god worshipers, well-indoctrinated us in their beliefs.
    With the understanding that the Jews were not the only chosen people of YAHUAH, but the entire twelve tribes of Isreal. The tribes of Juda(Yuda), Benjamin (Benyamin), and Levi (Lui) combined are the Jews. The other nine tribes that went out into idolatry are too chose of YAHUAH.
    Why is it difficult to grasp that YAHYAH is not a man that he should lie? Nor the son of man that he should repent is clearly stated in scripture. Also noted in scripture is that the coming Messiah would be a man born in the lineage of David the King, who will be both King and Priest. To meet these qualifications, he would be born in the lineage of the only established Priesthood ordained by Yahuah, the Levitical Priesthood through Aaron.

    Hebrew 5:8-9 states that the Messiah learned obedience through his suffering.

      • David, one of the greatest deceptions that humanity has experienced, has put a gouge so deep and wide separating us from the truth that most may never accept it, even when it is backed by sound doctrine. That deception came from one called Constantine the Emperor/Great. The Council of Nicaea, which he organized, comprised pagan priests from many different pagan religions. They brought bits and pieces of their pagan beliefs as Constantine demanded them to translate the Greek Vulgate into English. Their attempt was to resolve the controversy of Arianism, which was believed to be heresy. The Historical and Biblical Account of the events that took place co-in-side with the period when the scrolls were burned to hide the changes made in translation for The King James Bible. The Truth is brutal for us to accept, as is depicted in the book of Matthew 24:24. We have been lied to all of our days, and these truths go against what we have been brainwashed to believe. But the truth shall make you free!

  4. Thanks, so I watch antichrist revealed and felt uncomfortable so i found your page and could relax in Christ again.
    Did he get the name of God and Jesus correct, when I ask a pastor or two, they dont have a clue, Yahuah and Yahusha.
    Thanks, George

    • Thank you for your comment George. Yahuah and Yahusha appear to be the Hebrew names of the Father and Messiah. But his teaching about Messiah being 100% human who sinned, is heretical. And the antichrist is not Jesus Christ. It is the popes of Rome, who in the name of Jesus Christ have misled billions of Catholics with a false gospel of works through the sacraments, and a false intercessor in Mary, which denies Messiah.

  5. Luke 3:23 And Yahusha Himself began to be about thirty years of age, being
    ( AS SUPPOSED ) the son of Joseph. the people ( SUPPOSED ) He was the son of Joseph. Nowhere in scripture that I am aware of does Yahusha EVER, call or acknowledge Joseph as His Father. He does however acknowledge Mary as His fleshly mother. In Luke 2; Note: When Mary and Joseph took family and went to Jerusalem as they do every year at the feast of Passover, when they started on their way back home, they realized Yahusha was not with them , so they turned back to go to Jerusalem to look for Him. Yahusha was 12 years old at the time, after searching 3 days for him, they found him in the Temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions. And all that heard Him were astonished at His understanding and answers. And when Mary and Joseph saw Him, his mother asked him why He had caused them to sorrow looking for Him. And he said to them , why is it that ye sought me, Did you not know that I must be about (MY FATHER”S BUSINESS? He not only expresses , a Capital Father, but said he was about his Father’s business. We know He didn’t mean Joseph, as Joseph was a carpenter, and He certainly wasn’t doing carpenter work in the Temple, He was clearly acknowledging His Father as His Father in heaven. At 12 years old, Yahusha knew who his true Father was His Father in heaven, and knew His mission on earth to do his Father work. There are more chapters and verses that make it clear that Yahusha was divinely conceived in the womb of Mary by the overshadowing of the Holy Spirit. Mary was in the lineage of King David, and through Mary he inherited that lineage. Joseph disappeared from scripture very fast, he is not mentioned but a few times.

  6. In the old testament , people were to sacrifice a (SPOTLESS LAMB WITHOUT BLEMISH ) If Yahuah excepted but a “Spotless Lamb as sacrifice, should we think that the Sacrifice Yahuah sent to take away the sins of the world should be spotted with the blemishes of sin? Yahusha was without sin, a perfect spotless sacrifice, to think a Lamb sacrifice should be more perfect than the Son of Yahuah, who was to be sacrifice for the sins of the world, is just not correct perception, or true understanding of scripture. Temptations of the flesh and world, were all around Yahusha, and tried to tempt Him as all mankind, but He resisted these temptations, and by His not being taken captive by them, showed us that we can resist them too when we seek with all our heart to do the will of Yahuah, and love Yahuah more than the world , and the things in the world.

  7. I see he sells the word of God. If he has been given insight by the LORD then he should NOT be selling it for profit or as a non-prophet. It should be FREE because the LORD gave freely. Now that I see he sells it he is a false profit.

    • Thomas, do you think that Paul Sides or any Bible teacher who publishes their explanations in a book format should pay for printing and shipping costs, so that people can have the books for free?

  8. Thank you for sharing this, I like many were taken in with this Paul Sides, because I never read enough, just that he was teaching Torah, and what I did read sounded real good, but PRAISE YAH that I have found the truth about this man, and as you say Pray that he comes to repentance from his false Teachings.. I have repented, that I did not seek FATHER first to guide me in reading his posts, I was blinded, but now I see, HalleluYAH !
