The Biblical Definition of “Lawlessness”
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 Tanakh [Old Testament], lawlessness can be derived from the Hebrew word און aven, Strong’s number H205, meaning iniquity, wickedness and sorrow. Also, the Hebrew word עוה avah, Strong’s number H5753, plays into the sense with a meaning of bending, twisting, distorting and perverting. [Emphasis added]
The Greek word anomia (Strong’s Number G458) is again and again translated “iniquity” or “lawlessness.” In the B’rit Cbadashah [New Testament], it is derived from Strong’s number G459, anomos, which means “avoid of the Mosaic Law” and “transgression of G-d’s commandments written down for Moshe at Mount Sinai.” Anomos can also refer to contempt and violation of law or departure from law in a general sense. However, unless otherwise noted by context, such as in a setting of Greek and Roman law, Y’shua HaMashiach [Yeshua/Jesus The Messiah] and the B’rit Chadashah writers most-often used the idea of “lawlessness” to describe a devious attitude or lifestyle with respect to rebellion against the Mosaic commandments of the Hebrew Torah. To help us understand this Yochanan [John] wrote in his first epistle, Chapter 3 verse 4: [Emphasis added]
Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness.
(1 Yochanan [John] 3:4, [Emphasis added])
Based on the Hebraic perception that sin is lawlessness (iniquity) and sin (iniquity) refers to a lifestyle contrary to the Mosaic Law, Israel is said to have sinned and committed iniquity against G-d and His Torah commandments in Mizmor (Psalm) 106: [Emphasis added]
Verse 6: We have sinned like our fathers, we have committed iniquity, (lawlessness) we have behaved wickedly.... [Emphasis added]
Verse 35: But they mingled with the nations, and learned their practices... [Emphasis added]
Verse 36: And served their idols, which became a snare to them. [Emphasis added]
In Mizmor [Psalm] 119:133 and 125:5, the great King David further defined lawlessness (iniquity) in reference to those who turn away from the Torah: [Emphasis added]
Establish my footsteps in Thy word, and do not let any iniquity (lawlessness) have dominion over me. [Emphasis added]
But as for those who turn aside to their crooked ways, the Lord will lead them away with the doers of iniquity (lawlessness). Peace be upon Israel. [Emphasis added]
Hundreds of years later in Jewish history, the prophet Dani’el besought the L-rd on behalf of Israel confessing the sins of his fathers and calling the sins of his people “iniquity”: [Emphasis added]
Alas, O Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant and lovingkindness for those who love Him and keep His commandments, we have sinned, committed iniquity (lawlessness), acted wickedly and rebelled, even turning aside from Thy commandments and ordinances.
(Dani’el 9:4-5, [Emphasis added])
When Y’shua [Yeshua/Jesus] spoke concerning the idea of sin and lawlessness, He referred to attitudes of inward and outward contempt against keeping the Torah commandments of Sinai. This is pictured in the following verses: [Emphasis added]
Many will say to Me on that day, “Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?” And then I will declare to them, “I never knew you; depart from Me. you who practice lawlessness.”
(Mattityahu [Matthew] 7:22-23, [Emphasis added] – MY NOTE: The ones being addressed here are those who are not obedient to keeping/doing the Torah. They are doing things their own way. They are more interested in keeping/doing the traditions of men than being obedient to YHWH’s Teachings and Instructions--Torah.)
The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness....
(Mattityahu [Matthew] 13:41, [Emphasis added] – MY NOTE: Who do you think these “Stumbling Blocks are?” To find out, we will take a look at the Scriptural definition on “Stumbling Block” next week. stay tuned...)
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which on the outside appear beautiful, but inside they are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness. Even so you too outwardly appear righteous to men, but inwardly you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.
(Mattityahu [Matthew] 23:27-28, [Emphasis added])
And as He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” And Jesus answered and said to them, “See to it that no one misleads you...” “And because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold.”
(Mattityahu [Matthew] 24:3, 12, [Emphasis added])
Even the great Sha’ul (Paul) understood that one who is lawless is also not committed to the Mosaic Law. Hence, he wrote the following words to the believers in the cities of Corinth, Thessalonica and personally to Titus:
Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness?
(2 Corinthians 6:14, [Emphasis added])
Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction....
(2 Thessalonians 2:3, [Emphasis added])
…looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus; who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds.
(Titus 2:13-14, [Emphasis added])
Interestingly, the above phrase, “a people for His own possession” alludes to Shemot (Exodus) 19:5 and G-d’s commandment to the Israelites to obey and keep His covenant: [Emphasis added]
Now then, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be My own possession among all the peoples, for all the earth is Mine. [Emphasis added]
On this idea, G-d defines “His people” as those who keep His covenant given to Moshe. These are His possession among all the peoples. (More on this in Chapter four of the second volume of this teaching series.) [MY NOTE: Both the First and Second Volumes are no longer in print. I will work on this additional part and refer everyone back to this teaching once I have completed that task. However, if you are interested in purchasing Volume 1 (Messiah: Understanding his life and teachings in Hebraic context, volume 1) and (Messiah: Understanding his life and teachings in Hebraic context, volume 2), you can do so by either searching for these two volumes or clicking on the above links that I have found to purchase these two volumes.]
I hope this sheds some light upon the Biblical definition of “Lawlessness” compared to what man has defined “Lawlessness” to be. It makes a big difference when we use the Bible as our dictionary. Especially the Old Covenant/Testament since the New Covenant/Testament did not exist at the time Yeshua/Jesus was here.

Job 38 – 39 Acts 20
Job 38:1 Then YeHoVaH answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said,
Job 38:2 Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?
Job 38:3 Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou ME.
Job 38:4 Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.
Was Job there and has no excuse OR was Job not there and has an excuse?? Two completely different “schools-of-thought” are built upon the way we interpret this and I lean toward the understanding that Job had no excuse for questioning The ALMIGHTY CREATOR and neither do i. “Out of the whirlwind” we have a barrage of pointed questions — totally churning up the dust of creation in the face of Job, in the face of you and in the face of me — and I have to ask — was i in the “3rd loft” when our CREATOR was speaking it all into existence? Maybe this is not so farfetched as our Apostle Paul gives us a show-n-tell lesson of what we’re talkin’ about here:
July 10 - 14, 2012
(revised July 16, 2017)
Ezekiel 5 - 9 Acts 20 - 24
Maybe it was you that pulled up behind the guy, at the signal light, who had a bumper sticker that said "HONK if you love JESUS." Thinking that you love Jesus, and honking, the guy stuck his head out the window and yelled back, "It's still red, you idiot"!
On the flip side, maybe it is me, honking my horn, as I read between the lines, in Acts 20:7-12, about the "mystery" of YHVH's Kingdom. And maybe someone will shout back…. "That ain't what it said, you idiot!" :o/
I have to agree, what I'm about to say, "Ain't what it said." Well...Not exactly. Never-the-less, some very interesting Scripture came into clear view, for me, and I would like to share what I saw. So, let's look at Acts Chapter 20.
When we hear the name, Eutychus, what comes to mind? Eutychus is only mentioned one time in the entire Holy Bible. We are in the middle of Apostle Paul's travel.
Seven days ago, Paul arrived in Troas. And now, it is Sunday and the passage says:
Acts 20:7 And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread (because they, the disciples = disciplined ones) rested the previous day), Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.
Acts 20:8 And there were many lights in the upper chamber, where they were gathered together.
Acts 20:9 And there sat in a window a certain young man named Eutychus, being fallen into a deep sleep: and as Paul was long preaching, he sunk down with sleep, and fell down from the third loft, and was taken up dead.
Acts 20:10 And Paul went down, and fell on him, and embracing him said, Trouble not yourselves; for his life is in him.
Acts 20:11 When he therefore was come up again, and had broken bread, and eaten, and talked a long while, even till break of day, so he departed.
Acts 20:12 And they brought the young man alive, and were not a little comforted. ["not a little comforted" means they were comforted VERY much.]
And, right away, Apostle Paul departs and is traveling again. Verse 16 tells us that Paul did not want to spend any time in "Asia." So, if ya don't mind the pun; my question would be, what does Eutychus have to do with the "price of tea in China"?
Here, we have six verses, that just come-and-go (out of the clear blue), with no obvious connection to anything else, in the entire Bible. What's with that? Before I give my humble opinion, I checked to see what a few of the "professional" commentators have to say.
C. I. Scofield, D.D. doesn't touch it with the proverbial "ten-foot-pole." No comment, whatsoever.
Commentator, Matthew Henry, emphasizes that the Christians are assembling on "the first day of the week," Sunday. He goes on to say that the Saints were poor and met in a "despicable inconvenient place." (If an "upper room" is a "despicable inconvenient place," I wonder how "despicable" Mr. Henry regards the place of the Last Supper.) Mr. Henry goes on to say: "They came together to break bread, that is, to celebrate the ordinance of the Lord's Supper." He then elaborates on the L….O….N….G sermon, which Paul preached, and gets into a lot of speculation about what Paul preached about. And then, Matthew Henry condemns the young man for sleeping in "church," and says that this is a lesson for us to stay awake in church. I don't think so. Matthew Henry gives no evidence of believing in "eternal life," only a twisted concept taught in cults; wherein "eternal life" is life from-now-on ("eternity" beginning with self….which is quite arrogant!). I'm not going to put much stock in his commentary.
Then, I read a commentary by Henry Morris, who must have been a Prince of a man, and I'm sorry I did not have the opportunity to sit down with him and visit about some of his commentaries, before he passed away on February 25, 2006. Although he says nothing about the "fall" of Eutychus, Mr. Morris says, "Only one other example of miraculous restoration to life through an apostle is cited, that of Tabitha through Peter (Acts 9:41). This is the last such instance recorded in Scripture before the second coming of Christ." I am grateful for Mr. Morris' mention of "restoration to life" and his Gospel Truth awareness of "eternal life." For example, his willingness to admit his own human uncertainty speaks tremendously of him, when he comments on Ephesians 1:4, which says:
"According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world...."
Mr. Morris says:
"God in Christ was the Creator of the space/matter/time/ universe, but before He began the world, in some way beyond our comprehension, we were chosen by Him."
And then, commenting on 2 Timothy 1:9, which says:
"Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,"
Mr. Morris continues:
"This remarkable revelation is incomprehensible to finite minds. We who are "in Christ Jesus" were saved and called (note the past tense [this is still his quote]), not only before we consciously accepted Christ, but even before we were born and before He created the world (Ephesians 1:4). While we cannot understand this with our minds, we can apprehend it with our hearts, and thank the Lord."
Thank you, Brother Henry Morris!
Getting back to the "third loft," I have to ask, why not the second loft, or the forth or the fifth? Why the "third"? I do not think that the "third loft" was an arbitrary number or "despicable" place. I have to admit that my repeated reading, of YHVH's Word, cover-to-cover, has influenced my thinking. My Bible is my Father's personal Words to me (as I hope they are HIS personal Words to you). As His Spirit helps me to understand what I am reading, and to gain knowledge, I make notes. This is important. In the margins of my Bible are notes and references to other passages. Next to this verse, which speaks of the "third loft," is a note: "see 2 Corinthians 12:2." 2 Corinthians 12:2 is also from the pen of Apostle Paul, and it says:
"I knew a man in Mashiyach above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: YHVH knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven."
Apostle Paul, I'm sure, is speaking of Stephen. Fourteen years ago, Paul was still Saul and watched as his order, to stone Stephen, was carried out. By the transforming power of YHVH, Paul is now our Apostle. Apostle Paul has been speaking, in the "third loft" for a long long long time, and it is late into the night. Our Apostle Paul knows the dictionary definition of "eternal life." And I have to ask, what if? What if our fall from grace was from the "third heaven," which could be illustrated by the "third loft"? When we fell from grace, we died in sin, and when Eutychus fell from the "third loft," he was "taken up dead." A messenger from YHVH, even Apostle Paul, descended from the "third loft," revived the young man…. the young man "was come up again," and they broke bread and ate. According to 1 Corinthians 10:17, WE are the "bread" and the "body" of Mashiyach. It is "we", who have fallen! It is "we" that must be revived. And it is "we" that are the fragment of the whole that will be "gathered UP"! After the "resurrection," they "broke bread," even partook of "communion," our celebration of the "return" of a fallen brother in Mashiyach (for which Yeshua is all about and for which we are to remember; as HE said, "this do in remembrance of Me").
Throughout the Bible, the word "sleep" is used to address someone who is dead. While Eutychus was still alive, in the window of the "third loft," something about him died and was in a "deep sleep," yet, his flesh was still alive (many people, living today, are dead spiritually). Then Eutychus "fell down from the third loft" and his flesh body "was taken up dead." Within the context of these 6 verses, we have the death of spirit and the death of flesh; as well as, the revival and resurrection of both.
In six short verses, Paul has given us a "show-and-tell" lesson of what he has been preaching for hours and hours and hours. Children of YHVH are YHVH's children. Duh! Yeshua is one of YHVH's children, and HE calls us "Brethren," because we have the same Father. Yeshua was killed for saying that He is YHVH's Son. Today, big religion would like to silence children of YHVH for the same reason….for stating, "I am a child of YHVH….literally." When you say, "our Father which art in Heaven," what do you mean? Think about Elijah (2 Kings 2:11) and Enoch (Hebrews 11:5), as Yeshua says:
John 3:12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
John 3:13 And no man hath ascended up to Heaven [third loft], but he that came down from Heaven [third loft], even the Son of man which is in Heaven [third loft].
Obviously Elijah and Enoch had previously been in Heaven, prior to descending to earth, because Yeshua said that this is a prerequisite to ascending to Heaven, as both Elijah and Enoch did. They "returned" to Heaven, as Eutychus "returned" to the "third loft."
The "third loft," the "fall," the "revival," and the "return" to the "third loft" is way more than a "stay-awake- in-church" lesson! Many are soon to be "caught up" to meet Yeshua in the air:
1 Thessalonians 4:16 For Yeshua himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of YHVH: and the dead in Mashiyach shall rise first:
1 Thessalonians 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet Yeshua in the air: and so shall we ever be with Yeshua.
1 Thessalonians4:18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
Remember, "No man hath ascended up to Heaven, but he that came down from Heaven…." John 3:13 does not end by saying "only" Yeshua, but "even" Yeshua which is in Heaven. [The adjective "even" is defined, in the dictionary, as: “equal to and used to emphasize that something is surprisingly true.” (“even” is italicized in my KJV and my point is, whether or not the word “even” was in the original writing, THIS IS A SURPRISINGLY TRUE SHOW-N-TELL LESSON!) This show-n-tell lesson applies to Yeshua, Elijah, Enoch, you and me. That is, we can only ascend to Heaven, after having descended from Heaven. Do I hear someone, with a bumper sticker, yelling back at me? :o/]
As the days press on, and I continue my daily Bible reading, Ezekiel 9 and Acts 24 brought tears to my eyes. I wept, as I read Ezekiel 9 and Acts 24, in light of the global state in which we currently live. The profound judgment, spoken of in Ezekiel 9, in conjunction with the rejection of Apostle Paul's preaching, by "church leadership" (spoken of in Acts 24), brought tears to my eyes. I ponder the distance between "Christianity" today and Biblical Truth. So few have ever read their Bible cover-to-cover, and it is no wonder so few understand the "mystery," spoken of by Yeshua. It seems to be a matter of "what our church believes," and not what the Bible says.
The "writer's inkhorn," in Ezekiel 9, and Apostle Paul's supposed felony, in Acts 24, brings me to my knees before Almighty Elohim. Do we even know how far we have fallen from our Heavenly Father, as we find ourselves in a society as vile as Sodom and Gomorrah? As I see these things, I look up, knowing that our "Redemption draweth nigh." And I have to ask myself, just how filthy am I? Cleanse me, O YHVH! Please make me ready for that glorious day, in the name of Yeshua ha Mashiyach, even Jesus the Christ, our Lord and Master and Savior. Amen. And Yeshua said:
Luke 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
The Words of Apostle Paul opened a panoramic view that I have never seen before! This magnificent view is in perfect harmony with the rest of Scripture! As I researched several Bible commentaries, none seem to explain the magnificent glory in the "fall" of Eutychus, or even comment on it! When I saw it, it was as though my exhale of amazement gave my intake a "turbo-boost" of enormous manifold pressure! :o))) Thank You YESHUA!!! May this "boost" propel my passion to speak the Truth, as we sprint to the CHECKERED FLAG finish.
And, Honk if you love Yeshua!
May YeHoVaH add HIS blessing to the reading of HIS entire Holy Bible. Amen.
Just between you, me, and the gate post: my combination of Old and New Testament chapters is very personal to/for me. I’m not caught up in Daily Bread devotional snippet readings or Rabbinic “Torah portion” readings and so on and so forth as I read the entire Bible as it is written in consecutive order and i consider the combination of chapters a GIFT of The HOLY SPIRIT. Today is no exception, as YHVH is speaking to Job in Job 38 and Apostle Paul is speaking to me in Acts 20... ALL focused on the exact same thing — where was i and do i have an excuse for NOT knowing Who CREATED ALL that IS???!!! Bottom line: i have no excuse.
This is all about the literal meaning of “eternal” LIFE, where we came from, why we are here, and how we return to our “long home,” where there are rules and regulations for proper co-existence that never change; but, are only rebelled against and that’s precisely why we are here
to STOP rebelling!
LIFE within ABBA’s hedge of protection, within the parameters of HIS eternal Constitution, which includes our Bill of Rights as well as the Rights of all others, is what we are privileged to remember, practice and return to. Yeshua paid the price for our blatant disregard for ABBA’s WAY and Yeshua is telling us:
John 8:11 .... go, and sin no more.
How do we know what sin is? Our Brother Paul tells us:
Romans 7:7 What shall we say then? Is the law [Torah] sin? YHVH forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law [Torah]: for I had not known lust, except the law [Torah] had said, Thou shalt not covet [Exodus 20:17!].
It’s no wonder why this world is running amok, in chaos, as false prophets in these days of amplified deception are preaching that YHVH’s eternal Instructions for HIS WAY of LIFE were “nailed to the cross.” Go figure. As Jesus BEGAN TO PREACH, HIS first words were:
Matthew 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.
Did ya, by any chance, notice what Paul is doing AFTER the death, burial, resurrection, and ascension of Yeshua AND AFTER Paul’s Damascus Road experience? Lookie:
Acts 20:6 And we sailed away from Philippi after [suggesting very strongly Paul’s observance of] the days of Unleavened Bread ....
and, after counting the Omer, 7 weeks of 7 days = 49 days unto the 50th (pentecost) day:
Acts 20:16 For Paul had determined to sail by Ephesus, because he would not spend the time in Asia: for he hasted, if it were possible for him, to be at Jerusalem the day of Pentecost [SHAVUOT, the same Hebrew calendar day that the 10 Commandments were given on tables of stone at Mt Sinai and the same Hebrew calendar day that the Holy Ghost put these Commandments into our hearts in ALL languages!].
Have you noticed that Paul never hasted, if it were possible to celebrate Easter or Christmas?? Why is that???
And then Second Opinions 6:66 says, “AH — Baloney — do whatcha wanna do kuz all that feast stuff and the rules of GODly LIFE were nailed to the cross.” Ya think? NOT!
O! The joys of being with ABBA at HIS moadim (HIS appointed times)!!!!!!!
Where were you?
YeHoVaH IS adding HIS blessing to the reading of HIS entire Holy Bible.
Anathema! Maranatha!! Amen!!!
P.S. Thank you, Brother Eddie, for keeping us posted on the correct “signs and seasons” (of Genesis 1:14, as they apply to ABBA’s moadim) and thank you, Sister Devorah, for your accurate sighting information:

Psalm 1 Acts 24
Psalm 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
Psalm 1:2 But his delight is in the Law [H8451 TORAH, the 1st 5 books of the entire Holy Bible see Psalm 119:142] of YeHoVaH; and in HIS Law [H8451 TORAH] doth he meditate day and night.
This is soothing to my soul, vitamin supplement for my spirit, a Lamp unto my path, and the compass for my WAY — as our Apostle Paul is pointing us directly to:
Acts 24:14 But this I [Paul] confess unto thee [Felix], that after The WAY which they call heresy, so worship I the ELohim of my fathers, believing ALL things which are written in the Law [H8451 TORAH] and in the prophets [even the book of Psalms]:
Acts 24:15 And have hope toward ELohim, which they [the false accusing religious leadership, namely, in this case, Ananias the so-called high priest — whom Paul did not acknowledge as The HIGH PRIEST in Acts 23:5 because Paul knows that YESHUA is The ONLY HIGH PRIEST after the order of Melek Tzedek (King of Righteousness); but nevertheless “they”] themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.
Briskly reading on, it is all too easy to scan over verse 17 and miss the MAJOR POINT! First, racing a downhill slalom over this verse:
Acts 24:17 Now after many years I [Paul] came to bring alms to my nation, and offerings.
Now, let’s snowplow... stop.. and plow... stop... and plow... and learn how:
Acts 24:17 Now after
“after” virtually means repeatedly in like manner of according to:
A primary preposition denoting the channel of an act; through (in very wide applications, local, causal or occasional). In composition it retains the same general import: - after, always, among, at, to avoid, because of (that), briefly, by, for (cause) . . . fore, from, in, by occasion of, of, by reason of, for sake, that, thereby, therefore, X though, through (-out), to, wherefore, with (-in). In composition it retains the same general import.
[Thank you, Tim, for this amazing teaching of TRUTH at 2019 SUKKOT :o)]
(The first form being in plural only, the second form being feminine); from H8138 to duplicate; a year (as a revolution of time [not a Gentile Gregorian 365 day calendar year. This WORD “year” is first used in Genesis 1:14, where we are instructed to LOOK UP to see ELohim’s clock-in-the-sky for HIS moadim APPOINTED cycles of time which no man can tamper with :o)))]): - + whole age, X long, + old, year (X -ly).
[specifically the 3 annual harvest Feasts of YHVH (Passover = barley, Pentecost = wheat, and Tabernacles = the BIGGEST HARVEST OF THE YEAR) when all men are required to bring TITHING, and the BIGGERST tithe on the 3rd Feast, SUKKOT, being the BIGGEST of the year, that is, SUKKOT/TENTS/TABERNACLES/IN GATHERING/SEASON OF OUR JOY! when orphans and widows are cared for!! totally every 365 day year!]
I [Paul] came to bring alms [tithing? I think so, at the appointed time? YES!!!] to my nation [as specifically instructed in Deuteronomy 26:12*], and offerings.
*Deuteronomy 26:12 When thou hast made an end of tithing all the tithes of thine increase the third Feast of YHVH [each year], which is the Feast of tithing, and hast given it unto the Levite [do we have a “Levite” minister today? Are not WE now the “Royal Priesthood” to whom this has been changed/transferred to according to First Peter 2:9 — YES!; AND, we DO HAVE], the stranger, the fatherless [orphans], and the widow, that they may eat within thy [our] gates, and be filled;
Apostle Paul learned these things from the BEST-of-the-Best Bible Seminary Professor:
Acts 5:34 Then stood there up one in the council, a Pharisee, named Gamaliel, a doctor of the Law [H8451 TORAH], had in reputation among all the people, and commanded to put the apostles forth a little space;
Acts 5:35 And said unto them, Ye men of Israel, take heed to yourselves what ye intend to do as touching these men [our Apostles!].
DR. Gamaliel KNOWS-HIS-STUFF! He taught our Apostle Paul:
Acts 22:3 I [our Apostle Paul] am verily a man which am a Jew, born in Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, yet brought up in this city at the feet of Gamaliel, and taught according to the perfect manner of the Law [H8451 TORAH] of the fathers, and was zealous toward God, as ye all are this day [but, did Paul ever denounce the TORAH? Not according to:].
Romans 3:31 Do we then make void the Law [H8451 TORAH] through faith? God forbid [!!]: yea, we establish the Law [H8451 TORAH, of our never changing GOD].
So, if I may be so bold as to interpolate, let’s read what DR. Luke recorded of our Apostle Paul speaking to us:
Acts 24:17 Now repeatedly in like manner of my ongoing practice during many Feasts I came to bring alms to my nation, and offerings. [and this is my desire, to follow Paul as he followed our MESSIAH. see Philippians 3:12]
Coming full circle, in The LORD’s autumn Feasts, as sugar beets, potatoes, corn, etcetera are flowing abundantly from the fields, ABBA’s Feasts and The SEASON OF OUR JOY are rapidly approaching, while ABBA is saying to you and to me:
Psalm 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
Psalm 1:2 But his delight is in the Law [H8451 TORAH, the 1st 5 books of the entire Holy Bible] of YeHoVaH [as HE declares the end FROM The BEGINNING (Isaiah 46:8-10)]; and in HIS Law [H8451 TORAH] doth he [you & me ] meditate day and night.
YeHoVaH IS adding HIS blessing to the reading of HIS entire Holy Bible. Amen.

Psalm 2 – 5 Acts 27 – 28
Acts 27:13 And when the south wind blew softly, supposing that they had obtained their purpose,
loosing thence, they sailed close by Crete.
[“peace and safety” (1 Thessalonians 5:3 right?]
1 Thessalonians 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
QUESTION: Are you “BORN AGAIN”? or “BEGOTTEN AGAIN”?? Some say that there is no difference; and yet, we have 9 months of being “begotten” in the womb before we are “born.” Thank you, John, for pointing out how the birth canal is a very narrow passage/WAY, through which we are squeezed uncomfortably as we are “born.” I tend to believe that I am “begotten again” and will be “born again” when I receive my “transformed” body in the twinkling of an eye (1 Corinthians 15:52... “at the last trump?!!!” TRUMPETS?? YES!! The LORD’s Feast of TRUMPETS, Yom Teruah!!!).
Do ya remember the honeymoon? The wind usually blows softly during conception. At birth, there is breakage (of the water) and painful chaos — until we land on a strange island... and this is happening in the account of Paul’s shipwreck — until the passengers are all welcomed safely ashore; but, when is all this happening? Why does DR. Luke make note of “the fast”?
Acts 27:9 Now when much time was spent, and when sailing was now dangerous, because the fast was now already past, Paul admonished them,
Acts 27:10 And said unto them, Sirs, I perceive that this voyage will be with hurt and much damage, not only of the lading and ship, but also of our lives.
What “fast”? Please pardon me, if I’m incorrect, and allow me to explain why I’m leaning toward The LORD’s appointed time of Yom Kippur (Atonement) when fasting is the norm. As we speak, this is rapidly approaching — right NOW! TODAY!! We have had our first frost with a little snow and now we are in what they call an “Indian Summer” as the wind blows softly and all seems well. My Day-Timer says that The LORD’s Feast of TRUMPETS Rosh Hashanah begins at sunset tomorrow evening; if, of course, the first sliver of the new moon is sighted — because — “no man knows the day or the hour” (a Hebrew idiom used in Matthew 24:36 & Mark 13:32 to speak of The LORD’s Feast of Trumpets, which much of mainstream churchianity totally ignores :o/ And yet :o).
We know that Paul is sailing in the autumn because verse 12 is anticipating winter:
Acts 27:12 And because the haven was not commodious to winter in, the more part advised to depart thence also, if by any means they might attain to Phenice, and there to winter; which is an haven of Crete, and lieth toward the south west and north west.
The word “winter” is only used 13 times in the entire Holy Bible — one of which is regarding the actions of Yeshua our Messiah:
John 10:22 And it was at Jerusalem the Feast of the Dedication [H2598 Hanukkah], and it was winter.
John 10:23 And Yeshua/Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch. [WWJD? HE honored Hanukkah! and if we follow HIM and if we are NOW The Temple in which the Holy Spirit dwells, isn’t this FESTIVAL worthy of our honor? YEPPER!!! :o))) As for me and my house, we rededicate/Hanukkah our “temples” to our CREATOR every winter at this very special appointed time :o)))]
Paul’s shipwreck is a dynamic illustration of the rapidly approaching days ahead; and, our Apostle Paul “expounded” (G1620 exposed/declared) the Kingdom from what writings? AHHHH:
Acts 28:23 And when they [“the Romans” according to verse 17] had appointed him [Paul] a day [of trial], there came many to him into his lodging; to whom he expounded and testified the Kingdom of ELohim, persuading them concerning YESHUA/Jesus, both out of the Law/TORAH of Moses, and out of the prophets, from morning till evening. (see what Moses said, which Paul is quoting:)
Deuteronomy 6:6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
Deuteronomy 6:7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down [evening], and when thou risest up [morning].
Reading on, didjah notice “The three taverns”? Our Apostle Paul is not a bar-hopper. “Taverns” are defined for us by James Strong as:
Plural of Latin origin; huts or wooden walled buildings; Tabernae: - taverns.
TABERNACLES! Remember Peter wanting to build 3 tabernacles for Yeshua, Moses, and Elijah in Matthew 17:4, Mark 9:5 & Luke 9:33 ??? !!! YES... 3 Tabernacles/Taverns.
The LORD’s Feast of Tabernacles/Tents/Booths/Huts/Taverns IS NIGH AT HAND!!!
Those who do not want to be with The LORD when HE says supper is ready WON’T HAVE TO BE and they will hear: Matthew 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from ME, ye that work iniquity [without TORAH — the writings of Moses, which our Apostle Paul is talkin’ about!].
AHOY THERE! This SHIP is about to WRECK!! Revelation chapter 18 is barreling toward us at avalanche speed!! ABBA told us how to navigate via HIS sun, moon, and stars in Genesis 1:14 and Moses “expounded” and Apostle Paul is telling us, “HEY! Listen to Moses!!” in Acts 28:23. Are we in and staying in HIS ark, ahem... SHIP?
The storm is nigh upon us; however, a safe haven is promised. Shalom aleichem.
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!
Psalm 10 – 12 Romans 1 - 3
Psalm 12:6 The WORDs of YeHoVaH are pure WORDs: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
Psalm 12:7 Thou shalt keep them, O YeHoVaH, Thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
Romans 3:31 Do we then make void the Torah through faith? YeHoVaH forbid: yea, we establish the Torah.
Why am I not interested in attending ecumenical/universal/catholic fellowships that keep telling me that we are no longer “under the Law” of our eternal never changing GOD? I prayed about it and here’s what ABBA PAPPA YeHoVee (H3069) said to me:
Being a child of GOD
my DADDY told me
to quit hanging out with playmates
that keep telling me
that I do not have to do
what my DADDY says.
YAH IS adding HIS blessing to the reading of HIS entire Holy Bible. Amen.
P.S. We will be looking for the first sliver of the re-NEW-ed Moon tonight, for the starting gun of ABBA PAPA’s autumn Feasts of joyous celebration!!! We hope to see you there :o))) For news of the sighting in Jerusalem, click on:

Wide Is The Gate 1 (5 of 5) The Emerging New Christianity: The New Age in the Media
In Volume One, Caryl Matrisciana covers these topics:
The Counterfeit Church
Christianized New-Age Spirituality
The Evolving Old New-Age to New-Age Christianized Mysticism
Volume 1 Guests include Caryl Matrisciana, Jason Carlson, Eric Douma, Brian Flynn, Michael Gendron, Tom McMahon, Johanna Michaelsen, Roger Oakland, Chris Quintana, Warren Smith, Ray Yungen, and other cameos. Video journalist, Caryl Matrisciana, author of Out of India, interviews friends, well-known authors, and experts in this bold and challenging DVD. Caryl examines the intrusion of the 60’s and 70’s New Age Movement, steeped in its pagan eastern mysticism, and traces its morphing over the last four decades—from its repackaging as the “self help” psychology and holistic health movements of the 80s, to its seeker friendly, megachurch appearance in the 90s, to its coming out in the 21st century as “the new spirituality.” Today’s new brand of Christianity has a different gospel and is targeting the younger generation with a so-called hip, cool, experiential spirituality, much of which is embracing the mysticism of Roman Catholicism with its ecumenical philosophy of uniting people from all faiths to work together to bring about a new world of peace and harmony. The dangerous result of this new spirituality in the church is the rise of today’s “Christianized” occultism. It is stretching its tentacles around the souls of unsuspecting youth, setting them up for the lie that subjective emotions of “power” and “experience” are “feelings” to be held higher than an objective walk in the Christian faith, based on truth found in the pure Word of God. Learn what Scripture teaches about the times we live in, the ways in which Christians are being seduced away from biblical truth, and the methods used by the New Spirituality to usher in the counterfeit kingdom of God on earth.

FALL FEASTS OF YHWH: How? When? Why?
A study on why we would want to keep the Feasts of Yahuah, how to do so and when to celebrate.
Here is the article: https://parableofthevineyard.com/fall...
Below, in part, is the article he has a link to above and that he is reading from in the above video.
COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE
There is a movement happening all around us – a growing group of believers who are being called out of the world and her ways. A departure from Babylon; (spiritual Egypt if you will) leaving the error of her fornication.
Revelation 18:4 “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues” Link
As Revelation 18:4 states, we are to come out of Babylon, and this study will be an important portion of what that journey actually looks like. Let’s quickly review the reason for Mystery Babylon’s coming destruction, as well as those attached to her and her ways:
According to the book of Ezekiel, she will be destroyed for this reason:
Ezekiel 23:29-30 “…and the shame of thy fornication shall be exposed: and thy ungodliness and thy fornication brought this upon thee, in that thou wentest a-whoring after the nations, and didst defile thyself with their devices.” Link
The word ‘devices’ is defined as: Link
Something devised, or contrived:
Plan, procedure, technique
A scheme to deceive
Desire or inclination
As we know, Satan is the deceiver and he has certainly done his job with the masses, leading them to disobeying the commandments of Yahuah, particularly his Sabbath and feast days, part of the very core of our walk and our show of allegiance to The Most High. Has the enemy used its devices by planning a scheme to deceive the world, especially believers? Absolutely. Brothers and sisters, a big part of coming out of Babylon is by no longer celebrating pagan festivals, especially those under the guise of attempting to serve the Elohim of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. What are we saying? It’s time to drop man-made traditions that inherently serve another god, because he tells us not to worship him in the same way the nations do:
Deuteronomy 12:30-32 “Take heed to yourself that you be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before you; and that you inquire not after their elohiym, saying, How did these nations serve their elohiym? even so will I do likewise. You shall not do so unto YAHUAH ELOHAYKA: for every abomination to YAHUAH, which he hates, have they done unto their elohiym; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their elohiym. What thing soever I command you, guard to do it: you shall not add thereto, nor diminish from it.”
Christmas and Easter are perfect examples of pagan festivals that were mixed into the faith and ended up replacing in the minds of many, our scriptural command to keep his true Sabbath and feast days. Tonight, we will be going over the 3 fall feasts that are upon us; how, why and when to do so.
Many will also say, “God knows my heart” and he knows I’m not worshiping the christmas tree and so on. We’ve seen this before, where the children of Israel were impatient with Moses being gone 40 days on Mt. Sinai, they wanted to make a feast to Yahuah, their way:
Exodus 32:1-5 “And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him. And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me. And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron. And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, To morrow is a feast to Yahuah.” Link
We know what happened after this… It’s time we did things his way.
THE FEASTS ARE FOR US TODAY
Unfortunately, 90% + of ‘believers’ have bought into the lie that the feasts are just “Jewish holidays” and not for the church. Sadly, this is so far from the truth. We know the scriptures say this:
Numbers 15:15-16 “One ordinance shall be both for you of the assembly, and also for the stranger that sojourns with you, an ordinance forever in your generations: as you are, so shall the stranger be before YAHUAH. One Torah and one manner of law shall be for you, and for the stranger that sojourns with you.” Link
Leviticus 19:34 “But the stranger that dwells with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and you shall love him as yourself; for ye were strangers in the land of Mitsrayim: I am YAHUAH ELOHAYKEM. Link
Brothers and sisters, whether we are blood descendants or not, it does not matter; we are branches of the vine of Israel through faith and of the covenant through belief in Yahusha, the Son of The Most High. HalleluYah!
John 15:1-6 “I AM the Vine of Truth, and my Father is the Husbandman. Every branch in me that bears not fruit he takes away: and every branch that bears fruit, he purges it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the Vine, ye are the Natseriym (branches): He that abides in me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.”
Leviticus 23 states these are his feasts:
Leviticus 23:4 “These are the feasts of YAHUAH, even holy assemblies, which ye shall proclaim in their appointed times.
One word of caution. As people continue to come out of the apostate church system, many have unfortunately gone to the other side of the gutter, Judaism which is filled with added man-made traditions that are just as bad as the system they left. Growing up in Judaism, I know oh to well of all the added traditions. Some seem harmless, but we must remember that we were instructed not to add unto his word:
Deuteronomy 4:2 “Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may guard את eth-the command ments of YAHUAH ELOHAYKEM which I command you.” Link
I will be sticking to scriptures at all costs and I recommend the same for you and your family.
There are many theories and beliefs about baptism as portrayed in the New Testament. What’s the origin of baptism? Was it really a new commandment? We examine these questions and more as we study the Scriptures in order to figure out what is baptism.

Having trouble figuring out what the truth is?
I do not blame you. Truth is hard to find, and lies are everywhere. Especially now.
So, where do you go to get the truth?
You won’t find it in the headlines. You won’t find it at school or university. Politicians won’t tell you the truth. Pastors just tell you part of it – if he has any of it to tell you. And then, there are those who try to tell the truth, but wind up mixing in the lies that they believe.
That doesn’t leave us very much to work with. But, there is one thing that we CAN do:
Look at the foundations.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve lived by a very simple rule:
Really? Prove it.
It’s a useful rule to live by, but it drives almost everyone crazy. I think that I have successfully driven…
Parents. Teachers. Pastors. Siblings. Neighbors. Friends. Enemies. Asians. Americans. Conservatives. Liberals. Jews. Muslims. Christians. Atheists. Agnostics. And yes, even Mrs. Little.
(The poor woman is stuck with me. But, she has a sense of humor, so she’s fine.)
There’s a limit to how far you can go with that, but so far, it has kept me from believing the Pretribulation Rapture and the Theory of Evolution. It pulled me out of the Republican Party AND the Council on Foreign Relations – and yes, I was a member of both. It helped me see that the official explanation for 9/11 was wrong. It’s why I didn’t spend much time with the John Birch Society. And, it’s why I have never believed that the King James Version of the Bible is error free.
Seriously. Anglican translators.
What part of that was ever a good idea?
I have always been annoyed with the errors in the King James Version, but I have had trouble finding a translation of the Bible that I could trust. They all have errors. Every single one, which is frustrating. But, I’m getting off topic. Now, where was I… ah yes:
But, can you find the truth, just by demanding proof?
That’s where things get a little tough. I can absolutely prove that the Earth is a globe, if I want to spend some money, but I cannot prove with my own eyes that the US landed astronauts on the moon. I can prove that the explanation for 9/11 does not fit the facts, but I cannot prove who was behind it. Real proof is a very, very hard thing to find.
"Who Are the Sons of God?" | SESSION 1 | Jacob's Tent
Petrus Romanus Warns That GAIA ‘Is Groaning’ And Humanity Must Immediately Bow Down And Beg Her Forgiveness, ‘Listen To The Land’ And Assume Your ‘Correct Place In The Web Of Life’ Orders Head Of Rome
BECAUSE ANTICHRIST AND THE FINAL SOLUTION WILL REQUIRE A GLOBAL MONETARY SYSTEM—MAKE WAY FOR ACCELERATED ADOPTION OF “DIGITAL CURRENCY” ACROSS THE PROPHESIED REVIVED ROMAN EMPIRE IN THE COMING WEEKS, SAYS EUROSYSTEM PRESIDENT
Though I’m not a prophet, In my best-selling and timely book THE RABBIS, DONALD TRUMP, AND THE TOP-SECRET PLAN TO BUILD THE THIRD TEMPLE I made several compelling predictions that have progressively unfolded since, which soon could culminate (probably after the 2020 US presidential election) in an earth-shattering event that will accomplish nothing less than altering the course of history. What is about to unfold will set in motion arrival of Antichrist and Armageddon, followed by the Second Coming of Jesus Christ involving a global push to build the Third Temple in Jerusalem. It’s happening right now behind the scenes in clandestine negotiations between global powers and religious leaders. These astonishing claims, regardless how incredible they may seem, will be unveiled sooner than most expect.
Connected to all this, when the time is right, US President Donald Trump will, as the rabbis in Israel hold, play a key role by speaking in favor of the Third Temple’s construction. When that happens, it will ignite the single most important and prophetic event in our lifetime. Unfortunately for those who at first find great joy in the Temple’s reconstruction, exuberance will be short-lived and will ultimately cave to terror.
On this order, did you know that:
The architectural plans for the Third Temple have already begun?[i]
The Sanhedrin—the nascent tribunal that has styled itself after the Second Temple-era Jewish court—recently instructed Jerusalem mayoral candidates to include in their plans the building of the Third Temple?[ii]
Just 24-months ago, the Sanhedrin invited seventy nations to dedicate the altar for the Third Temple:[iii]
Evangelical Christians and Jews gathered in Jerusalem not long ago for an interfaith conference aimed at joining efforts to build the Third Temple for inaugurating the “Messianic Era”?[iv]
Freemasons in the US and Israel have been secretly planning for decades to build the Third Temple?
Jews are increasingly demanding access to the Temple Mount with visions of building the Third Temple?
A newborn red heifer was certified by a board of rabbis as fulfilling all the biblical requirements for Temple service, a prerequisite for “the biblically mandated process of ritual purification for impurity that results from proximity or contact with a dead body. Because the elements needed for this ceremony have been lacking since the destruction of the Second Temple, all Jews today are considered ritually impure, thereby preventing the return of the Temple service”?[v] That is, until now.
A growing number of rabbis in Israel view Donald Trump as a Cyrus-like figure, whom the God of Israel raised up to initiate the “Messianic era” and the construction of the Third Temple?[vi]
Saudi Arabia, Jewish religious leaders, and Donald Trump have been negotiating behind the scenes to transfer control of Israel’s holy sites—including the Temple Mount—to the Saudis, to complete a “peace covenant” that could result in, among other things, the building of the Third Temple.
A major step forward in this scheme was accomplished with the Israel–United Arab Emirates peace agreement, or the Abraham Accord, agreed to by Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on 13 August 2020.
Even some Muslim scholars have come to believe the time has arrived to build the Third Jewish Temple?[vii]
We make the mystery of the paradox more understandable when we reconsider these fascinating facts. God, who is perfect in all His ways, created humankind perfectly, actually making us in His own image. Once again, we realize that He gifted us with a powerful imagination so that whatever we could imagine, we could eventually do. However, when we began to use that imagination in building a tower that would reach into Heaven, God was displeased and stopped the project by confounding the language of the builders, then scattering them abroad. We again consider the question: If a perfect God created a perfect person, why did God act in such a seemingly harsh manner when the creature used God-given talent as recounted in the story of Babel?
The answer, of course, is that God also created us with free moral will. The creature wasn’t made a robot, but was made with brilliant conceptual abilities and given freedom of choice—which includes discernment for choosing wisely. But Adam chose to disobey God, so sin entered the world. The human bloodstream became instantly contaminated by the infection. The minds of the people, including their imaginations, became dark in the mystery of iniquity that engulfed them.
The paradox understood, the question is now answerable: What is wrong with people coming together in a united effort to construct a one-world order to achieve peace, prosperity, and love for all mankind? The answer is that we are spiritually separated from the Creator because of original sin. Our thinking is therefore fatally flawed. Nothing good can come from thinking and planning that excludes God.
Had God allowed the globalists of Nimrod’s day to continue their tower project, He would have had to ultimately curse the earth again as He did when Adam disobeyed, or He would have had to destroy all living things upon the earth as He did because of the corruption that required cleansing by the great Flood of Noah’s day. God wasn’t acting harshly at Babel, nor was He acting contrary to His perfect character. Rather, He was displaying unfathomable love by keeping His promises to the tiny fallen creature who deserved judgment and for whom He would one day sacrifice His only begotten Son.
The World-Order Schemers
Children of the tower of Babel builders today carry on the globalist agenda despite the differences in language and geographical separation. They circumvent the barriers through use of technologies designed to serve their one-world purposes.
The obsessive drive toward bringing all men, women, and children into one-world configuration arose shortly after the time Jesus Christ walked the earth. It is perhaps indicative of our sordid day that since the time He walked the earth in the flesh, this era has been called “AD,” an abbreviation of the Latin anno domini, “the year of the Lord,” but now we are to acknowledge that we live in the period of human history called the “Common Era,” or CE. The revisionists, you see, demand that all vestiges of Jesus Christ be erased—even from our lexicon. There must be many ways for the people of the coming New World Order to come to God, if indeed there is a God.
