Truth — 01/01/2022
In 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 video.
In Volume 1 of a 3 Volume set, the topics for Volume 1 are:
(A) The Counterfeit Church (B) Biblical Christianity (This video) (C) The Evolving New Age (D) Christianized New-Age Spirituality (E) The New Age in Media
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 80’s, to its seeker friendly, megachurch appearance in the 90’s, to its coming out in the 21st century as “the new spirituality.”
Today’s new brand of Christianity has a different gospel and it 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. Does this not sound like a one world religion?
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.

O! the magnitude!

First Kings 18 Luke 2
lOOking into an Electron Microscope
we see what Abraham saw when:
Genesis 15:5 And HE יהוה brought him Abram forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and HE יהוה said unto him, So shall thy seed be.
O! the magnitude!
MACROCOSM juxtaposed with microcosm, O! The MAGINTUDE! What is my “locality” as I sit in my easy chair and read ABBA’s יהוה WORD? Panning the cosmos, what limits your “locality” and mine? The illustration has been given that if we cut a piece of string in two, and then cut one half in two, and then cut one half in two… there IS a point at which cutting the last half causes loss of “locality.” It does not cease to exist — it becomes EVERYWHERE! On the other hand, increasing the size takes us to a point at which there is a boundary forbidding further increase. The late Dr. Chuck Missler gives a thought-provoking presentation, for those who ponder Abraham’s seed and the stars of heaven:
At 1 hour 7 minutes and 50 seconds, Chuck says something very profound:
“This should lead, IF NOTHING ELSE, to some humility.”
Perhaps, this is what our Apostle John is actually saying:
John 3:30 HE must increase, but I must decrease
[to 10-33 centimeters = the point of NON-locality!].
In Luke 2, our MESSIAH increased to the location of Bethlehem. Roll that around in your mental universe for a while (uni = single & verse = a spoken sentence :o))
AND GOD SAID…
Ego is probably the BIGGEST road-block on The WAY to live LIFE in TRUTH. It is all too easy to get wrapped-around-the-axel of Jacob’s seed until our WHEELS fall into the biggest pot-hole the road-of-Life has to offer. Case in point: A man whom I respect, whose Dad is virtually my age, and who is a TOTAL JEW — said to me (if I may paraphrase, because I can’t remember the EXACT words) “We need to be very gentle with the whole Jew/Gentile issue because we do not want to drive anyone away.” My hat is off to him. His humility is a beacon toward which I am drawn. In my zeal, it is all too easy to run roughshod over those who just don’t get-it. I don’t mean to; it’s just that, ego is easily puffed up — exactly as ABBA is saying via Apostle Paul:
1 Corinthians 5:2 And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.
there’s that axel of Jacob’s seed… again
as the previous verse says:
1 Corinthians 5:1 It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife.
“Reported commonly” among who? And “not so much as named among” who?? Maybe I’m 50% Jew and just don’t know it. One of my half brothers had his DNA tested and he told me that he has ZERO Jewish DNA. He and I have the same Dad. Was my Mother 100% Jew? Aaaaaah — not really :o/ Do either of my parents have even a hint of ANY ISRAELI DNA? That’s the $64,000.00 question. With hat-in-hand, I tend to shy away from taking the “fair-haired-child’s” seat in the house and here’s why?
Luke 14:7-11 And HE YESH-OO-AW’ put forth a parable to those which were bidden, when he marked how they [Israelis? It would seem that’s who is HE speaking to here? who] chose out the chief rooms; saying unto them, When thou art bidden of any man to a wedding*, sit not down in the highest room; lest a more honourable man than thou be bidden of him; And he that bade thee and him come and say to thee, Give this man place; and thou begin with shame to take the lowest room. But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room; that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit at meat with thee. For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
*Why a “wedding” and not a corporate or religious board meeting? Are there any specific protocols for weddings that surpass that of town-hall meetings? I hasten to add, 1 Corinthians 5:1 is FRONT-AND-CENTER!
Reason 2: When a genuine Israeli warmly invites me into fellowship with him/her, I know of no greater honor. For me to barge in and take the head of the table would be ludicrous. I have to thank my FATHER in Heaven for HIS discipline, HIS rod & staff and HIS circumstances that have paved the WAY for me to RETURN to HIM: I was the poster-child of one born with a sliver spoon in his mouth. Literally! My mother’s father was exceedingly wealthy! In the late 1940s and early 50s, he was a design engineer for Bell Labs in New York City and held a lead position in the design of the dial telephone; as a matter of fact, he was the man in charge during the central office phone switching installation (which he designed) in DENVER — not just another wide-spot-in-the-road. He had a mansion with servants. He paid for my parents first house and in 1950 he had a $5,000.00 college fund for me. At 4 years old, my parents divorced. The silver spoon went flying out the window, with that $5,000.00 which I never saw, my fantasy-land turned into boarding houses, not to mention my Germany born step-mother who enjoyed telling me gruesome Hitler Holocaust torture stories, and then a year or so with Grandpa, prior to him taking me to Wyoming where all hell broke lose! At age 4, I became the proverbial step-kid. Being a part of THE FAMILY has been my hope & dream ever since. My BIG BROTHER YESH-OO-AW’ IS preparing that place for me — HE is my half Brother, too. We have the same FATHER but different Mothers :o))) HIS Mother is ISRAEL. My Mother, although passed away, is very dear to my heart (in spite of all that happened. She had a very rough life, also). Having said that, it is nice that folks want me to be a part of Israel; and yet, I still need to be patient, as the Bride that I am, awaiting The “wedding.” Israel is already married, according to Isaiah 54:5-7, Jeremiah 3:14 and Ezekiel 16 and those who scream the loudest about Israel marrying Her SON are PRECISELY the ones Paul is speaking to in 1 Corinthians 5:1!
Our FATHER is planning a wedding for HIS SON. HIS SON is the only WAY the other 70 nations have a snowball’s chance in a bakery of entering the COMMONWEALTH of ISRAEL. And now, those who would have me believe that EVERYBODY that’s ANYBODY is ISRAEL are telling me that Ruth was NOT a Moabites (as the text clearly says) but that she was an ISRAELI. O! REALLY? Where does the Scriptures say that? Dropping back 5 yards, I love the way Zach Bauer’s late wife, Jamie, put it (with regard to the 144,000) WHY CAN’T WE JUST READ THE TEXT THE WAY IT IS WRITTEN? This is where my GOLDEN GLOVES adrenaline surges through my veins and only by the mercy and grace of HIM who continues to chastise me do I cool-my-jets and consider how much i must decrease, even to 10-33 centimeters = the point of NON-locality!
Ah, yes, whether Ruth was always an Israeli or a Moabitess who became an Israeli via marriage to the kinsman redeemer, Boaz, and whether Rahab was always an Israeli or of the lineage of the people in Jericho until she married into the COMMONWEALTH of Israel — I don’t know — nor do I know if Bathsheba was Caucasian or Afro or whatever Hittites are; and quite frankly, i don’t care. All I care about is that these precious Sisters made it, as is my goal :o)))
O! the magnitude!
Luke 2:10 And the angel said unto them,
I bring you good tidings of great joy,
which shall be to ALL people.
YIPPEE! I’m a “people” and this includes me!! HalleluYAH!!!
As I sat, this morning, reading my FATHER’s WORD, O — of course, a little chuckle about Ahab’s prophets trying to entice their gods to set fire to their sacrifice and how ELIJAH is goading them with mockery by saying:
1 Kings 18:27 And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud: for he is a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing*, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked.
“pursuing*” seems innocent enough; and yet, a little word search tickles my funny:
From H7734; a withdrawl (into a private place): - pursuing.
“into a private place” begins to stir curiosity :o)) Here’s a translation that begins to tickle me:
1 Kings 18:27, NLT: "About noontime Elijah began mocking them. 'You'll have to shout louder,' he scoffed, 'for surely he is a god! Perhaps he is daydreaming, or is relieving himself. Or maybe he is away on a trip, or is asleep and needs to be wakened!'"
O! Really? 1 KINGS 18 – ELIJAH’S VICTORY AT CARMEL
ii. “Rabbi S. Jarchi gives this the most degrading meaning; I will give it in Latin, because it is too coarse to be put in English; Fortassis ad locum secretum abiit, ut ventrem ibi exoneret; ‘Perhaps he has gone to the ————-.’ This certainly reduces Baal to the lowest degree of contempt, and with it the ridicule and sarcasm are complete.” (Clarke)
Again, out with the old — in with the new:
When YESHUA said (to the people in Israel and I presume they were Israelis :o),
Matthew 12:49 And HE stretched forth HIS hand toward HIS Disciples, and said, Behold MY mother and MY brethren!
Matthew 12:50 For whosoever shall do the will of MY Father which is in Heaven, the same is MY Brother, and Sister, and Mother.
O! Yes. Many claim to be ISRAELIs, but few know enough about their ETERNAL family to speak intimately about them. This is not funny. It does not make me chuckle. Actually, I cry real tears about these things; and at the same time:
O! the magnitude!

EXPONENTIAL COMPOUND UPON COMPOUND
December 25, 2021
First Kings 16 Mark 16
Is “compound” a noun or verb? Yes, it is. We have compound interest on compound investment. We have compound pharmaceuticals. We have a military stronghold or prison referred to as a compound and it is for us to sort through the nouns and verbs in order to select the elect (and again, “elect” is a verb when we are voting and a noun when we are chosen :o)) With compound interest on compound interest, we find that our investment grows exponentially. You’ve heard of the fellow who agreed to work for one penny all day the first day and that the pay would be doubled each succeeding day. Chicken feed chump change the first day and over a million dollars per day by the end of the month!
First Kings 16 is about the compounding of sin with each succeeding king, until Ahab. Ahab and Jezebel have been considered the prototype of Bill and Hillary by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn:
As children are kneeling before an erect conifer decked with gold and silver balls, the joys of the holidays gloss over the LIFE of our MESSIAH. KAB (Keep Alliance Beautiful) has already announced their plan for the influx of wrapping paper: https://panhandlepost.com/posts/9083356d-7867-462c-bcbf-31fa22d4e423 “KAB....WILL RECYCLE CHRISTMAS WRAPPING PAPER...PUT IN THE PAPER BINS” Bins (plural) for this small town. It would seem that is where we find the LIFE of our MESSIAH — discarded in “bins” of religious fantasy. Lest I overstep my bounds, let’s move into the last chapter of Mark and the RESURRECTION:
What, pray tell, does “resurrection” mean? I’m thinking about some Greek guy who attends a weekly men’s Bible study (I say “Bible study” with tongue-in-cheek) where the men alternate bringing the donuts to munch on while discussing the football scores (Bible study?) and some Greek guy says, “I have donuts that ye know not of.” (see John 4:32) Has the “men’s Bible study” ever defined the “RESURRECTION”? What doeth it meaneth?? Here’s the first definition that poppeth up :o))
the action or fact of resurrecting or being resurrected.
"the story of the resurrection of Osiris"
“Osiris”? What?! According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osiris
HEY! I’m not makin’ this stuff up!! Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle ALL THE WAY!!!
And as they say, “It’s all for the kids.” LIES! all for the kids. At a recent Sukkot, while visiting with another camper, I mentioned how much we have learned from Michael Rood and you could have knocked me over with a feather when I heard the response. It was as though I had used the most vulgar profanity! After Sukkot, while visiting with one of the hosts of that Sukkot, I mentioned my use of “profanity” and then that host asked me, “So, where is the profanity in what you are saying?” I explained and his response was the response of a SPIRITUAL super hero! Basically he said that We are working very hard to engage with other Leaders of The FAITH. This, too, hugged my eternal SPIRIT. If I may be so bold, and this is NOT profanity, even though some question the wealth of Daniel and who Daniel willed his wealth to, and bla Bla BLA… This is more food for thought than fried ice and DONUT holes:
The question that keeps echoing in the corridors of my mind is this: How can we expect the next generation to be honest if they grew up believing LIES? Believing that Ahab and Jezebel will care for us?? Believing that Easter Sunday is A O Tay Butwheat??? FYI:
Yes, maybe I’m finally just crawling out from under an obscure rock in the middle of nowhere; and yet, while seeking TRUTH through the lens of what the Bible actually says, amid the din of LOUD LIARS, there are, indeed, a few who seem to be on an interesting track:
The 144,000 and the Children that Kick Satans Butt in the End Times
Zach impresses me most with a very viable explanation of WHY hasatan is so bent on aborting the children. Could they BE? I have no profound exclamation about this, as I, TOO, at 74 years young, am a Spiritual infant; and yet, Zach’s thoughts are well worth consideration. I mean, really, why are we practicing setting up camp, maintaining cleanliness in the camp, and traveling again — each year if not for the MAIN EVENT??!!
After reading and before writing, this morning, MaraDale and I sat and visited about when to depart, where we will first see the pillar of fire, and the great majority of possessions we will leave behind. What is important? Will THE Sukkot be a week in a holiday hotel? Mark 16 is our STARTING gun: “Mark 16:15 And HE [not some Greek dude with donuts — this IS Jewish YESHUA speaking to YOU and to ME!!] said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” Am I? Do I have the “calling” and “ordination” of a santa clause religion with only 3 wise men??? Am I “authorized” to do what YESHUA COMMANDED? What did HE teach?? Somehow, I never got HIS invitation to HIS birthday party… Did you?
Somehow, the penny of my first glimpse of TRUTH has compounded exponentially. Why? Because:

First Kings 1 Mark 3
Mark 3:5 And when HE YESHUA Jesus had looked round about on them
with anger, …
For “them” who are still sucking their sweet baby Jesus thumb, this is not for them. This is for the few who take GOD’s WORD seriously and I have to ask: How well do we KNOW our Jewish KING YESHUA? I mean KNOW! What we’re talking about here is intimacy to the MAX without sex. We see this in both Bathsheba and Abishag:
1 Kings 1:1-4 Now king David was old and stricken in years; and they covered him with clothes, but he gat no heat. Wherefore his servants said unto him, Let there be sought for my lord the king a young virgin: and let her stand before the king, and let her cherish him, and let her lie in thy bosom, that my lord the king may get heat. So they sought for a fair damsel throughout all the coasts of Israel, and found Abishag a Shunammite, and brought her to the king. And the damsel was very fair, and cherished the king, and ministered to him: but the king knew her not.
“knew” is defined for us right outta th’ Garden chute:
Genesis 4:1 And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, …
Without being unnecessarily graphic, I think we all get the picture. First Kings explodes with a POWER STRUGGLE and as we un-package this chapter we see the love of Bathsheba and Abishag for King David amidst the evil of Adonijah who is bent on being KING. This will unfold with our preview of what’s currently coming down the proverbial PIKE! Women, Mothers, and LOYALTY zOOm into focus right here:
Mark 3:34-35 And HE YESHUA looked round about on them which sat about HIM [“them” are all ISRAELIS, right?], and said, Behold MY Mother and MY brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of God יהוה YESHUA’s FATHER, the same is MY Brother, and MY Sister, and Mother. [and we KNOW Who HIS FATHER is, right? HIS Mother and FATHER are still married!]
This may be a s-t-r-e-t-c-h — and yet, some of us are a bit like Abishag who is keeping our KING warm while The FATHER’s Wife is also in the rOOm, seeing all that is going on. This is getting deep, right? Hang on, it’s going to get much deeper! WHO is in the rOOm with each of us, as we speak? Again, this may be a s-t-r-e-t-c-h into the unseen realm of radio waves and HDTV. When, in all the HIStory of the world, was a brutal stabbing in Jerusalem SEEN in REAL TIME on the other side of this globe? Right here, in America, we see wars and rumors of wars in the Middle East, the nuke talks in Vienna, the airstrikes in Syria and it is all as commonplace as a bowl of Wheaties. Most of us know that technology, knowledge, and travel are escalating at warp speed. What is the SOLID ROCK upon which our minds are anchored? The following may seem like another rabbit-trail-tangent of thought; but in REALITY, it is an INTERSTATE — even an INTERNATION! — HIGHWAY to PARADISE or HELL!
Keep this in mind, while a beautiful virgin is keeping him warm, King David’s words echo:
A Psalm of David. …
Psalm 101:3 I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.
How many “wicked things” do we set before OUR eyes, right in our own living room in our own house when we turn on the TV?! As to not set any wicked thing before our eyes, our TV time became limited to news, Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy, and our analog “boob tube” TV became obsolete without a digital conversion box, which we purchased and our viewing continued until, on both game shows, contestants began introducing their same-sex spouses in the audience. That’s when we pulled the plug! I will NOT have that trash in my house! RADICAL BIGOT? Only to those who float with the crowd down the tOObs of New Age sewage. Our actions are based on Biblical principles which are laid out for us from Genesis 1:1 through Revelation 22:21 and little did we know, the REWARD of obedience is BLESSING us, as we speak! Again, this may seem like a small thing; but for me, this is HUGE:
MaraDale just finished reading a book entitled, THE GREATER EXODUS by Dr. Shmuel Asher. We do not agree with Dr. Asher on several issues; however, I lean toward recommending Dr. Asher’s book. Why? Last evening MaraDale read to me the last chapter, about HDTV and subliminal messaging. WOW! He sites NEWSWEEK and their article about this high frequency radio wave technology used by the U.S. military in the 1991 Iraq war. This goes light years beyond Dick Tracy, Superman, Star Wars, and our wildest imagination! These tools are begging the antichrist for hands-on deployment; which, apparently IS already IN OUR FACE! BUYER BEWARE and this website gives the essence of it all, including Dr Asher’s quote:
If I may summarize: I first learned about subliminal messages in my 1976 college psychology class. What I learned was, our visual and audio senses are communicated with, at a level which we are totally UN-aware of! None of us are immune; but, I highly encourage you, when the sights we DO see and the sounds we DO hear are anti-BIBLICAL — it behooves us to PULL-THE-PLUG! We do not have to research very far to clearly understand how far hasatan has gone to take us AWAY FROM יהוה Who IS telling us The WAY of TRUTH for Living LIFE; and, if John 14:6 is not echoing ABOVE BOARD in your mind, we need to TALK!
יהוה IS adding HIS blessing to the SHAMA of HIS entire Holy Bible. Aw-mane’
Shama (Hear & Obey) YeHoVaH's instructions for Yeshua is coming soon. Read ALL YeHoVaH'S BOOK!
Well, I lied. I am not finished with the ark yet. This subject is too important, and I do not want to leave out a lot of good stuff just for the sake of moving on. So, with that in mind, let's talk some more about the cherubim and the contents of the aron. Last time we discussed briefly the purpose of the cherubim being there, but the text gives us some more details into the structural design that is important. In Shemot (Exodus) chapter 25 verse 19-20, we are told that these special beings are to cover the kapporeth with their stretched forth wings. Wings notoriously speak of trust in the Scriptures.
Mizemor (Psalm) 61:4 I will abide in thy tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of thy wings.
Mizemor 36:7 How excellent is thy loving-kindness O God! Therefore, the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.
Mizemor 91:4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust.
Listen carefully to the writer of the book of Ruth:
Ruth 2:12 YHVH recompense thy work, and a full reward be given thee by YHVH ’Elohiym of Israel, under whose wings thou are come to trust.
These cherubim picture the act of batach or trusting YHVH. Many times in Scripture trust is associated with children.
In Mattityahu Yeshua‘ says:
Mattityahu (Matthew) 18:3 Verily I say unto you, except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Children are the epitome of trust. They rely totally on the wisdom, nurturing, and direction of their mother and father. It is then no coincidence that in Rabbinic literature the cherubim are pictured with the faces of little children, hovering over the ark containing the instructions of our Father. The Word of God is "under the shadow of thy wings."
The ark contains, or will contain, three objects: The law - (Ten Commandments, or Ten Words) Devariym (Deuteronomy) 10:2; Aharon's rod - Bemidebar (Numbers) 17:1; and the pot of manna - Ivrim (Hebrews) 9:4. All three of these objects are part of the testimony of YHVH, as well as the tabernacle itself, Bemidebar 9:15. Specifically, however, the ark is the testimony of God. So, what is God's testimony? Well, this English word is often translated as "the witness". The Hebrew word is 'edut. This ark was to be God's witness. This ark, a furnishing in the singular, is God's instructions covered by His mercy. This is to be HIS witness of HIS character and nature. Many times when we witness His good news, we focus on the kapporeth or mercy, and not the rest of the testimony. Yeshua‘ witnessed of His Father by extending mercy and grace to a lost people and obeying His commandments. This is a perfect continuing picture of God's witness, not man. The three objects in the ark all testify of the way, truth, and life of God. In Bemidebar [Numbers] 17, we see that true life is expressed by the blossoming buds of Aharon's rod. We see a picture of the High priest being the only way into the Holy of Holies, and we experience the truth through the revelation of the one true rod of God, the one that produces fruit. In spite of the kind of food that Israel lusted for, the only way they would be fed by God was to eat His manna, or His bread. This bread was a picture of the true life of God.
Yochanan (John) 6:33 For the bread of God is he who cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.
Verse 32 of this same chapter tells us that this manna is a picture of the true bread from heaven. The manna was always a yad or a pointing stick to the words of God.
Devariym [Deuteronomy] 8:3 And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knew not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man does not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of YHVH doth man live.
The Ten Commandments, a representation of all of God's commands, is also a witness of the way, truth, and life of God.
Mizemor [Psalm] 119:1 Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of YHVH.
Mizemor 119:50 This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word has given me life.
Yeshua‘ expresses this perfectly well in Yochanan 6.
Yochanan [John] 6:63 It is the spirit that gives life; the flesh profits nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
In Mizemor 119 we again read:
Mizemor [Psalm] 119:142, 151 Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is truth ... Thou art near, O YHVH; and all thy commandments are truth.
For further study on this subject I would recommend going to our archives under these subjects. I can assure you that there are myriads of verses similar to these.
I believe that the heart is where God's Torah resides, and that it has always been that way. Many biblical scholars teach that Mesopotamia is the cradle and heart of civilization, and that the garden of Eden was at the heart of Mesopotamia. The Scriptures go on to reveal that from this heart of the land four rivers went out from Eden to water the garden. (Bere’shiyt (Genesis) 2:10). This, of course, would be the source of water to give life to the garden, and a picture of the source of living water.
Yochanan [John] 7:38 He that believes on me, as the Scriptures hath said, out of his heart shall flow rivers of living water.
It was in this garden that God gave Adam instructions or Torah. Adam was told that he could freely eat of all of the trees of the garden. The garden was Adam's world, and he was given freedom in that world if he obeyed God's command.
Bere’shiyt [Genesis] 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it; for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
Pretty simple instructions. Do what I ask and you will have freedom, disobey and you lose your freedom and your life. From the heart and center of Adam's world comes freedom if he listens to God and death if he does not. Freedom does not come from release from God's instruction but obedience to it. In Bere’shiyt [Genesis] chapter three the serpent will contradict this basic scriptural truth and teach that freedom comes from liberation from God's commands. This perversion of a basic scriptural truth will be the basis for most religions from this point on. After Adam and Chava's (Eve's) removal from the garden, this ancient paradise will disappear from the scene. From this point on, the garden will be placed in the hearts of men by the act of sacrifice of innocent blood. Every person since Adam cannot enter this garden. God's truth, by faith, would dwell with us, and one day we would once again go to be where He is (Yochanan [John] 14:3).
God would soon once again paint a picture of His dwelling place in the tabernacle. A place for His mercy and instructions, the ark. This tabernacle in the wilderness for His people would have a heart or a source for the rivers of God to give life from. It will be the heart of this structure that will give instructions and life to the Holy place and the court. This is where YHVH must first begin, and this is why from His point of view, He starts here. The heart or the lev in Hebrew is the center of man. Sometimes it is also referred to as the belly or beten. This word's verbal root also means to protrude from the center. The beten or womb is the source of nourishment for the child. The Scriptures teach that what we see externally comes forth from the very center of our being, or our heart.
Mattityahu (Matthew) 12:34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
If the heart contains not the words of God, then it is not the words of God that will be displayed. When we, as believers, receive a new heart, we have His Torah written there. Why? Because God is placing His ark into the center of our very being. An ark that is covered by His mercy but contains His laws. His laws must be written on our heart. Yeshua‘ expressed what God means by that by doing what His law says. In Mizemor we read:
Mizemor [Psalm] 40:8 I delight to do thy will, O my God; yea, thy law [Torah] is within my heart.
Yeshua‘ always did what His Father told Him. He always obeyed Torah. This is why the new birth or new heart has Torah in mind. Listen carefully to:
Yechezeq’el (Ezekiel) 36:26-27 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you; and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh, And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep mine ordinances, and do them.
This is also why it is the heart that is the source of true circumcision (Devariym [Deuteronomy] 30:6, Yiremeyahu (Jeremiah) 4:4). When the heart is circumcised, it is made clean by the word of God. Only then can man say no to sin.
Mizemor [Psalm] 119:11 Thy word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against thee.
So the ark is to be constructed first. It will be the center and heart of the tabernacle. The heart of the Mishkan is to be a unity. This one structure is to be a unity of God's mercy and Torah. Torah without mercy is death. It cannot stand alone, and there is no other helpmate for it. Think about it. If Adam (Torah) had no helpmate, then how would he multiply? How could life flow from him? Mercy without Torah is empty. If Chava (Mercy) has no seed, no source of germination, then how can she produce life? True grace is filled with the seed of life.
Yochanan [John] 6:63 The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
The testimony or witness of the ark is to be the same witness of Yeshua'. The same testimony or "good news" to be taught and observed by God's people throughout all generations. The testimony of a Father, inherited by His Son, to be given to His children.
Mattityahu [Matthew] 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the age. Amen.
Shalom Alecheim! [Peace be upon you!]
In the days of Noah and afterward, fallen angels fathered hybrid creatures called Nephilim. The genetic mingling of demonic and human could not be tolerated in the days of Noah or when the Israelites came into Canaan. God spoke of giants whose height was like cedar trees, Moses spoke of King Og who was fifteen feet tall! The mystery of the Nephilim is the key to unlock Jesus' phrase "as it was in the days of Noah, so the coming of the Son of Man will be."

Jesus said we are to look up your redemption draws near or is close. But when exactly are we to do that? Are we to be looking up at all times with our eyes scanning the sky, or is this a metaphorical statement - or is there a specific time we are literally watch the sky? Some look at this as a proof we are to watch for Jesus not for signs of his coming. Others think it is proof that we aren’t to look for Jesus until right before he comes. Watch this riveting Nelson Walters video to find out the biblical answers.

Paths of Old - Ancient Paths
Jeremiah 6:16; 18:15; Acts 15:21
“Thus said יהוה (Yahweh), “Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; and find rest for yourselves....” (Jeremiah 6:16)
“But My people have forgotten Me, they have burned incense to what is false, and they have stumbled from their ways, from the ancient paths, to walk in bypaths and not on a highway.” (Jeremiah 18:15)
Regular public reading of the Torah was introduced by Ezra the Scribe after the return of the Jewish people from their Babylonian captivity (c. 537 BCE), as described in the Book of Nehemiah 8. In the modern era, adherents of Orthodox Judaism practice Torah reading according to a set procedure they believe has remained unchanged in the two thousand years since the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem (70 CE).
“For from ancient generations Mosheh has, in every city, those proclaiming him – being read in the congregations every Sabbath.” (Acts 15:21)

We’re moving through the religions of the ancient world to trace the ancient god called “Shemihazah,” “Kumarbi,” and many other names in roughly chronological order. We began with the Watchers on Mount Hermon and followed, perhaps surprisingly, with the Hurrian god called “Kumarbi.” You might think that we would move next to the religion of Sumer, which, until the recent discoveries at places like Urkesh, Tell Brak, and Hamoukar, was believed to be where urban civilization began.
Until recently, you would have been correct. But instead, we’re looking west, at civilization along the Mediterranean coast where the father of the gods was called El.

El’s home is described in the Ugaritic texts as a tent. This was similar to the tabernacle of the Israelites, Yahweh’s home for more than four hundred years between the Exodus and the construction of Solomon’s Temple. El’s tent was located at “the source of the rivers, at the midst of the springs of the two deeps.” This is reflected in a psalm that takes on new meaning in this context:
My soul is cast down within me; therefore I remember you from the land of Jordan and of Hermon, from Mount Mizar, Deep calls to deep at the roar of your waterfalls; all your breakers and your waves have gone over me. (Psalm 42:6–7, emphasis added)
Not to put too fine a point on it, but Psalm 42 points to the abode of El! Mount Hermon is the source of the Jordan River, and Mizar is probably the name of another peak in the Hermon range. The word translated “deep” is tehom, which means the abyss, the deepest parts of the earth, and there was a belief in the Near East that the two deeps of the world—a subterranean ocean that emerged as a fountain from Banias (the Grotto of Pan at the base of Hermon), and the celestial ocean that produced the rain—came together at the great mountain.
The chief god of Mesopotamia before the political rise of Babylon was the deity called the “Great Mountain,” Enlil. Scholars used to believe that the god’s name was a combination of the Sumerian words en (“lord”) and líl (“air/wind” or “storm”). As scholars have looked deeper into the nature of the deity, however, a growing number have concluded that “Lord Wind” or “Lord Aether” is too simple. The stories and descriptions of Enlil don’t include any characteristics you’d expect from a wind or storm-god. Based on his identification with El, Kumarbi, and others we’ll discuss before we reach the end of this series, Enlil should be understood not as lord of the air, but as “a universal god who controls different spheres and domains, different areas without any defined specialization.”
