Biblical Definitions: “Wisdom”
Source: “Messiah – Volume 1 – Understanding His Life and Teachings In Hebraic Context” by Avi Ben Mordechai. This book is no longer available from Coming Home - A Biblical Hebraic Outreach Teaching Ministry from Avi Ben Mordechai. It is out of print.
NOTE: I have added my comments in square brackets as such [ ].
In the religion of HaMashiach true wisdom was having a heart for the Torah and understanding on how to apply its teachings in everyday life. I have heard it put this way: “Wisdom is knowing the right thing to do and doing it.” The Messiah’s brother Ya’acov [James] supported this idea:
“Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do, and does not do it, to him it is sin.”
Ya’acov [James] 4:17) [emphasis added]
If wisdom is knowing the right thing to do and doing it then how are we to define what is right and what is wrong? The answer is in D’varim [Deuteronomy] 12:28 and Melechim Aleph [1 Kings] 11:38:
“Be careful to listen to all these words which I command you, in order that it may be well with you and your sons after you forever, for you will be doing what is good and right in the sight of the Lord your God. [emphasis added]
(G-d speaking through the prophet Alijah to Jeroboam): Then it will be, that if you listen to all that I command you and walk in My ways, and do what is right in My sight by observing My statutes and My commandments, as My servant David did, then I will be with you and build you an enduring house as I built for David, and I will give Israel to you.”
From HaShem’s perspective, following the divine instructions (the Torah) is always the right thing to do. If one will do this, he will obtain wisdom as in Mizmor [Psalm] 19:7:
“The law (Torah) of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul; The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.”
(Mizmor [Psalm] 19:7 [emphasis added]
REST WITH US
April 16, 2021
Micah (all 7 short chapters) Second Thessalonians (all 3 short chapters)
2 Thessalonians 1:7 And to you who are troubled rest with us,
when ELohim YESHUA (the Lord Jesus) shall be revealed from Heaven
with HIS mighty angels,
Dearly beloved, we’ve all heard that it is the darkest before the dawn — and so it seems that we have an approaching famine, not of bread nor of water but of hearing the WORDs of YeHoVaH (per Amos 8:11*) and yet, The LIGHT of the world will be coming as lightning from the east to the west in the twinkling of an eye – SOON! VERY SOON!! (Matthew 24:27 :o)))
*Amos 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith Adonoy YeHoVee, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing The WORDs of YeHoVaH:
As Joseph spent 7 years preparing the harvests of PLENTY for the next-up-to-bat 7 years of famine, we are at the end of the 6th day/year/millennium, with the FAMINE of all famines knocking on our door; and, Apostle Paul is inviting us into our GOD’s rest and when is that? From one cover of the Bible to the other, our CREATOR worked 6 days and rested the 7th and HE instructs us to rest with HIM, as stated AGAIN:
Hebrews 4:2 For unto us was the Gospel [TORAH] preached, as well as unto them: but The WORD [TORAH] preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.
Hebrews 4:3 For we which have believed do enter into rest, as HE said, As I have sworn in MY wrath, if they shall enter into MY rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.
Hebrews 4:4 For HE spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And ELohim did rest the seventh day from all HIS works.
The book of Hebrews is mighty close to the “back-o’-the-book” and still applies! Having said that, let’s dive into the DEEP END, regarding the signs/signals of the times:
Do you remember seeing any news (about 2 decades ago) about Desert Storm and the US invasion of Iraq, specifically about US Marines storming the Iraqi museum, dashing directly to the basement, and 4 large Marines lugging a HUGE crate up the stairwell, taking it out to a helicopter, and that crate being flown away to WHO KNOWS WHERE?? At that time (and I cannot remember who it was that said) the crate contained an ancient G-I-A-N-T (of what is referred to, in our Scriptures, as “Nephilim” and the United States government wanted the DNA — in that crate — didja hear that back then? Case in point: This 9 minute NEWS FLASH just in::
Yesterday, two different men, at two different locations, told me that they just do NOT have time to read the Bible, “I’m waaaaaaaaaaaaay to busy for that!” and I come away from those kind of visits with a weeping heart because their “eternal” Spirit is totally deprived of LIFE giving nutrients only found in The WORD of GOD. And, yes, I cry real tears.
If you’re still with me, as most have departed long ago, you are of the few whom YESHUA applauded (in Matthew 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is The WAY, which leadeth unto LIFE, and few there be that find it.:o)))
Our Prophet Micah is as current today (and most likely more so) than ~2700 years ago when he penned The WORDs which YeHoVaH was telling him about “the end from the beginning” (as stated in Isaiah 46:8-10 :o))) and our Bible is, indeed an “integrated Message system” with authorship OUTSIDE of time and space — as Micah is virtually repeating Second Kings 18 (especially verse 33) when Micah tells us:
Micah 7:10 Then she [the harlot religions of TODAY!] that is MINE [YeHoVaH’s] enemy shall see it, and shame shall cover her which said unto me, Where is YeHoVaH thy ELohim? MINE eyes shall behold her: now shall she be trodden down as the mire of the streets.
If ya want the graphics, of what Micah is talkin’ ‘bout here, read Second Kings 18!
Those religious perverts are still among us AND COMING ON STRONG!! As we speak! and few hava clue that we are in the days “Matthew 24:37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. ” OK, so like, what was the BIG DEAL in the days of Noah? Answer: Genesis 6:9 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations*, and Noah walked with ELohim.
*generations is all about GENETICS! DNA!! RNA!!! of which the fallen ones were tampering with and creating giants — HELLO
Artificial Intelligence, cloning DNA, GMO, all buzz words, and what happened to the glory in the miracle of CREATION? Our Prophet Isaiah answers for us:
Isaiah 14:13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
Isaiah 14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
Isaiah 14:15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
You’ve probably heard it said:
Proverbs 29:9 If a wise man contendeth with a foolish man, whether he rage or laugh, there is no rest.
On-the-other-hand, for us few, as the sun sets on this 6th day, we will illuminate our Menorah, our 7 branch lamp stand as spoken of in th’-back’-o’-th’-book:
Revelation 1:19 Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;
Revelation 1:20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks [MENORAH]. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks [MENORAH] which thou sawest are the seven churches. …
Revelation 2:5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick [MENORAH] out of his place, except thou repent.
Shabbat tov. Come, “rest with us”
YeHoVaH IS adding HIS blessing to the reading of HIS entire Holy Bible. Amen.
Shema (Hear & Obey) YeHoVaH's instructions for Yeshua is coming soon. Read ALL YeHoVaH'S BOOK!

After Jesus' Resurrection, 7 miracles began happening in the Temple in Jerusalem that were witnessed and recorded by Rabbis and Priests. These miracles testify to who Jesus was. Because the witnesses weren't believers this makes the records even more impressive evidence that Jesus is the Messiah. Watch this Nelson Walters video to find out more about them.

STRANGE: 'You Are Gods" - What Did Jesus Mean When He Said This?
Who was Present at the Tower of Babel?
by Brad Scott
One of the most fundamental backgrounds in understanding words is to know a little history behind those who use them. It is generally agreed by all that the language of the Tanakh [Old Testament] is Hebrew. It is also generally agreed that the Tanakh is very "Jewish", and full of concepts, idioms, and phrases that are viewed as Hebraic. Scriptural writers of the Tanakh spoke, taught, and thought from this perspective. Until the time of the New Testament, the Word of ’Elohiym was everything that He had spoken. All scriptural thought was seen through the Hebrew language. But several hundred years before ’Elohiym would take on flesh, the world was already experiencing some dramatic changes in language and culture. Behind the scenes, the Greek view of the world, and all that is in it, was brewing.
In our book, "Let this Mind be in You", I discuss the dramatic differences between Greek thought and Hebrew thought in much more detail. But suffice it to say, these two world views are in most ways antithetical to each other. This can be seen in no better way than the defining of words. Last time, we defined the word word from the Tanakh. We will now see how this word changed in time, from the thoughts and commandments of ’Elohiym, to the Logos. But first I would like to quote from some earlier works concerning this gradual evolution of scriptural words.
Edwin Hatch is eminently known for dozens of Greek works in the 19th century. Perhaps his greatest work is the Concordance to the Septuagint. The following are several excerpts from his book entitled: "The Influence of Greek Ideas and Usages Upon the Christian Church". 1895. Williams and Norgate.
“In a similar way we shall find that the Greek Christianity of the fourth century was rooted in Hellenism. The Greek minds which had been ripening for Christianity had absorbed new ideas and new motives;”
“We have ample evidence in regard to the state of Greek thought during the ante-Nicene period. The writers shine with a dim and pallid light when put side by side with the master-spirits of the Attic age;”
“We have ample evidence also as to the state of Christian thought in the post-Nicene period. The fathers Athanasius, Basil, Gregory of Nazianzus, Gregory of Nyssa, and Cyril of Jerusalem, the decrees of general and local Councils, the apocryphal and pseudonymous literature, enable us to form a clear conception of the change which Greek influences had wrought.”
“Education was no longer in the hands of “private tutors” in the houses of the great families. It entered public life, and in doing so left a record behind it.”
“But when the product of one generation spreads its branches far and wide into the generations that succeed, its roots must be deep and firm in the generation from which it springs. No lasting element of civilization grows upon the surface. Greek education has been almost as permanent as Christianity itself, and for similar reasons. It passed from Greece into Africa and the West. It had an especial hold first on the Roman and then upon the Celtic and Teutonic populations of Gaul; and from the Gallican schools it has come, probably by direct descent, to our own country and our own time.”
This process took several centuries to saturate the known world, but it indeed took root and has never let go. So let's trace one simple word for now.
The English word word that we read in our New Testament is translated in most occurrences from the Greek word logos. The 'o''s are pronounced as the 'o' in log, not as in low. Its fundamental meaning is much the same as is dabar [word]. It means thought, thing, something said, or utterance. This is the dictionary definition. However, it's colloquial meaning in the centuries before and after Yeshua‘’s time was quite different. Among the religious Greeks of that time the logos was the "god of gods", the divine mind of the gods. He or it was the "supreme knowledge", also known as gnosis. He was right thought, right mind, right purpose, and right creed. In other words, the logos was right belief. Knowledge was salvation: say the right things and believe the right things. And so we have the very subtle shift from Yeshua‘ being the "instructions of ’Elohiym become flesh" to the divine "knowledge of the god of gods". Salvation became an intellectual pursuit, with structured creeds as it's evidence. Edwin Hatch said it better, again, when he said,
“… the word faith came to be transferred from simple trust in God to mean the acceptance of a series of propositions, and these propositions, propositions in abstract metaphysics … The proposition followed: Belief in God came to mean the assent to certain propositions ABOUT God.”
Theophilus also stated that the logos had two aspects, thought and speech. So, the teachings of YHVH in the Tanakh [Old Testament] concerning marriage, government, children, relationships, disease, clean food, unclean food, handling of criminals, waste management, health, money, and love evolved into a creedal system. The WORDS of 'ELOHIYM soon became an abstract, undefined concept that could be obtained by saying the right things, to the exclusion of doing the right things. The Jews of the so-called “dark ages” knew this concept very well. When confronted with the Crusaders, they simply stated that they believed that “Jesus was the Savior”, and were promptly released. Most confessing Jews of that time secretly returned to their underground synagogues, knowing that the evidence of a Christian was a good confession.
This would not be all that critical if the actual Words of ’Elohiym were impotent and ineffectual. In the book of Yesha’yahu (Isaiah) chapter 14 in referring to Hasatan it says, “Who made the world like a wilderness, and destroyed its cities, who opened not the house of his prisoners?” Is it any wonder how easy that would be for him if ’Elohiym's Word, designed to produce a land full of milk and honey, to prosper our cities, and to set the captives free, was rendered irrelevant by a Torahless (lawless) religious culture? Is it a coincidence that the devil (2 Thessalonians 2:8) is called the lawless one? When you redefine ’Elohiym's words, you redefine life and all that it means.
We are going to spend the next several teachings identifying many words that over the last 2000 years have been slowly redefined. Many of these paradigm shifts will astonish you. But more than that, they will give you a fresh perspective of ’Elohiym's glorious word. His Dabar in the flesh, REALLY does give LIFE! Next time: The Light and The Way.
Shalom Alecheim! [Peace be upon you!]

In Revelation John contrasts the Seal of God given to the 144,000 with the Mark of the Beast. Everyone gets one of these two marks. How does the seal of God provide protection during the end times? When is this seal applied to the 144,000? Is it related the mysterious letters aleph tav found in the Old Testament? And if so, what do these letters mean?

Medicine: Idolatry in the Twenty First Century
by Brian Shilhavy Created4Health.org
This is what the LORD says — your Redeemer, the Holy One… “I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.” (Isaiah 48:17)
The book of Isaiah in the Old Testament portion of the Bible is one of the most incredible books of prophecy ever written. Isaiah was a prophet during the time the northern kingdom of Israel was deported to Assyria in 722 B.C. But not only did Isaiah write about events that were happening during his own day, he also wrote about events that would happen hundreds of years later during the days of captivity of the southern kingdom of Israel after 586 B.C. He also wrote what are called the “suffering servant” Messianic passages that prophesied about the life of Jesus Christ which would happen more than 700 years later.
In Isaiah chapter 48 we are given some of the reasons why God revealed these things to his people through the words of the prophet Isaiah:
Listen to me, O Jacob, Israel, whom I have called: I am he; I am the first and I am the last. My own hand laid the foundations of the earth, and my right hand spread out the heavens; when I summon them, they all stand up together. Come together, all of you, and listen: Which of the idols has foretold these things? (Isaiah 48:12-14)
What a poor comparison the idols of Isaiah’s day were in comparison to the one true God, the Creator of heaven and earth! The idols did not have knowledge of future events like the Lord did, who sometimes revealed these events to his prophets. The Israelites were called out to be a special people, different from the nations around them. They were to trust in God alone, and seek a relationship with him, as is stated in verse 17 above, where God states: “I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.” This principle guided everything in life, and was the first of the ten commandments:
I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. “You shall have no other gods before me. “You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments. (Exodus 20:2-6)
The Heart of Idolatry
So why did people create idols, and what did they trust them for?
Idols were looked to for guidance, power, and healing. It seems strange to us today that people would create idols out of man-made objects created by their own hands. But the reason it seems strange to us today is because the people trusted in the spirits or spirit world represented by the idols, or in some cases they may have believed that the idol itself was inhabited by spirit beings. Our materialistic culture, by contrast, believes primarily only in the physical world, either denying or ignoring the spiritual world.
The heart of idolatry is looking to sources outside of God for our basic needs and desires in life. The idols that are erected flow out of our experiences in life, and the idol is an attempt to explain life apart from the Creator.
Hence, when the Israelites were miraculously delivered from slavery to the Egyptians under the leadership of Moses, and when Moses went up on the mountain to receive the laws that were to govern them and did not return for 40 days, they assumed he was dead and they reinterpreted their experiences in life to find meaning apart from God. They assumed God had abandoned them and was no longer involved with their lives. Their experiences taught them that they had indeed been miraculously delivered from the powerful Egyptian army which was destroyed, so they had to attribute this reality in their life to something. Drawing upon their religious experience in Egypt, they decided to make an idol out of gold and use that image as a symbol of great power. (Read the story in Exodus 32)
