A St Andrew man who believes that the God Christians are worshipping is the devil has sold his businesses and properties in order to be able to bring the message of the ?real Creator?, Yud-heh-vav-heh or Yah to Jamaicans.

Archibald Hammond, 52, told THE STAR that Christians have been fooled for many decades, and the God that they are worshipping is indeed Satan.

"I did some reading and I found out that God and Yud-heh-vav-heh are not the same. They are two separate things. God is the title for the enemy Satan. He has deceived the entire world. The deception is cleverly done in the Bible," Hammond said.


Other Gods


Sitting in a tent that he said Yud-heh-vav-heh has instructed him to build on Sullivan Avenue, off Mannings Hill Road in St Andrew, last Sunday, Hammond said that he found his answer in the books Psalm and Exodus.

"It said that we should not talk about other Gods, and the same thing that he said not to do is what is happening," Hammond said.

"Yud-heh-vav-heh spoke to Moses many years ago and told him his name."

He said that his Creator promised to return to the Earth on the 6,000th year and he suspects that the end is really near.

"We are in the 5,777th year, and the 6,000th year could come any time," the father of a 13-year-old high-school student explained.

When asked how he plans to finance his son's schooling since he has given up his businesses and is using his money to spread the words of 'the Creator', he said, "There won't be a need because the Creator might be back by then."

"If he is not back, then I can sell mangoes to get money," he said.


Top worshipping


But Hammond's belief that the end is near seems to be profound in his mind because it has caused him to go to many communities around the island as a town crier, telling Jamaica to stop worshipping God and worship 'the Creator' instead.

Money from the properties he has sold and the contribution he gets from the 15 followers that he has been able to attract help to finance these trips.

At Sullivan Avenue, Hammond makes a sacrifice to Yud-heh-vav-heh three times a day after blowing a bull's horn. "This is how Yud-heh-vav-heh said we should do it," Hammond said, before placing a piece of dough on top of a fire.
