Truth — 06/05/2021
Updated: Jun 6
EASY AS 1, 2, 3 May 29, 2021 Genesis 30 Matthew 26
Matthew 26:69 Now Peter … (1) Mat 26:70 But he denied before them all, saying, I know not what thou sayest. … (2) Mat 26:72 And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man. (3) Mat 26:74 Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the man. And immediately the cock crew. Mat 26:75 And Peter remembered the word of Yeshua, which said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly. It is all too easy to deny the TRUTH, especially when high profile power players are in opposition. Our eternal Brother Peter seems to be our “fall guy” because we all need to be reminded how easy it is to just go with the flow. And yet, let’s consider this: We have the same Scriptures that Apostle Peter had, namely Zechariah 13:7; but, do we know it any better than Peter? When our current N.T. Matthew 26:31 says: Matthew 26:31 Then saith Yeshua unto them, All ye shall be offended because of ME this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad. was Yeshua merely pulling a rabbit out of a hat or was HE quoting the Scriptures that we SHOULD KNOW? Yeshua IS The WORD made flesh, right? (John 1:14) Zechariah 13:7 Awake, O sword, against MY Shepherd, and against the man that is MY fellow, saith YeHoVaH of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones. This prophesy was partially fulfilled in Matthew 26:31. If we listen to our Messiah and read the Scripture HE was referring to. HE is telling us about OUR opportunity to deny HIM! Will we or won’t we?? As they say, when we point our finger at Peter, 3 fingers are pointing toward ourselves!!! The proof will soon be in the pudding as Zechariah continues: Zechariah 13:8 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith YeHoVaH, two parts therein shall be cut off and die [juxtaposed with the Nazi holocaust, during which, one part were cut off and died with two thirds scattered. Coming soon, TWO THIRDS shall die]; but the third shall be left therein. Zechariah 13:9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on MY name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is MY people: and they shall say, YeHoVaH is my ELohim. I used to be a “pre-trib” rapture believer, until I realized that I am one of HIS and the pre-tribulation SWOOSH-outta-here is just a nice story. It does not agree with the TRUTH. O! But the critics say, “Only Israel will be left to endure.” And I say, “Are you sure?” Was Abraham an Israeli?? Was Isaac??? They were Hebrews, which means those who “CROSS OVER” but they were not Israelis! Jacob and his descendants became Israel; but, Abraham and Isaac were not Jacob’s descendants… and neither were Ishmael and Esau; and yet, do you know how much Abraham LOVED Ishmael and how much Isaac LOVED Esau??!!
Genesis 21:10 Wherefore she [Sarah] said unto Abraham, Cast out this bondwoman and her son [Ishmael]: for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, even with Isaac. Genesis 21:11 And the thing was very grievous in Abraham's sight because of his son. [Abraham LOVED Ishmael! The WILD branch of Abraham, see Gen 16:12 And he [Ishmael] will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.] AND, instant replay, in case we didn’t get it: Genesis 25:28 And Isaac loved Esau, because he did eat of his venison: but Rebekah loved Jacob. [Esau, also, became a WILD branch and sold his birthright to Jacob for a bowl of soup and Esau “despised his birthright” (Genesis 25:34)] Are Abraham and Isaac representative of our FATHER in Heaven? I tend to think so. Jacob’s sons were chosen for what? Jacob’s sons were chosen to be a LIGHT on a hill, to take the Instructions for LIFE into ALL the world, to bring the WILD branch(s) into the root of Jesse; but, has ZION actually happened yet? What does ZION mean? As I understand it, ZION is an agricultural term which applies to the “graffed in among them” process of Romans chapter 11. A WILD branch is carved to a wedge point and inserted into a V-notch carved into the trunk of the desired tree and then wrapped with a bandage until the two grow together. When the wound is healed to the extent that the bandage may be removed, the splice is now ZION. Is the world healed yet? Do we actually have ZION yet?? If so, why all the rockets???!!! From my perspective, my FATHER in Heaven has many Children, even me — a WILD branch. Some of us are being “graffed in among” Israel; however, the Marriage Supper of The LAMB, the ZION, has not happened yet. I am still as Ruth, gleaning in the fields of my KINSMAN REDEEMER. The harvest is in process. Another Shavuot has come and gone. The fields are ripe for the harvest and the question is, what are we doing? If we are “among” those “called” to be the LIGHT on a hill — are we? OR, are we sorting wheat from tares?? (and uprooting too much wheat in the process :o/ ABBA Papa B’shem YESHUA, please show me my place (that I not usurp the best place in the house to only be told later to take a lower place , see Luke 14:8-11), grant me wisdom and understanding — that I redeem the time YOU have granted me. And that when push comes to shove, i never deny YOU even once. YeHoVaH IS adding HIS blessing to the reading of HIS entire Holy Bible. Amen. Rog

SWAPPIN’ ENDS (headlights, taillights, Headlights, taillights :o)) “Slip Slidin’ Away”
May 23, 2021 Shavuot tov (May you be filled with the Holy Spirit even more TODAY :o))) Genesis 23 Matthew 19 & 20:1-16
Matthew 19:30 But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.
Dearly Beloved, I love you. The more I soak my brain in HIS WORD, the more my eternal Spirit is fed and the more I appreciate my eternal Siblings in YESHUA :o))) Over the decades, many interpretations of “the first shall be last and the last shall be first” have spun donuts in my tiny mind. I applaud Monty Judah for reminding me that the chapter breaks are a man-made addition and actually do more harm than good at times. (they’re good for quick reference; but, they often snap-in-two a train-of-thought) Connecting the end of Matthew 19 with the beginning of 20, we read:
Matthew 19:30 But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first. Matthew 20:1 For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard. … and again at 9 AM and again at noon, and again at 3 PM and again at 5 PM and then, at evening, they all got paid the last hired were paid first and the first hired were paid last.
In this generation, we may very possibly be paid before Apostle Paul, ya think? RUH-ROH, we may be on an icy road and starting to swap ends! Maybe, just maybe, Abraham has ALREADY been paid for his faithful labor in this Earthly vineyard! Genesis 19 tells us about the cave in a field at Machpelah, which Abraham purchased for 400 shekels of silver, in which to bury Sarah. It has been suggested, with very credible evidence, that Abraham was eventually buried in the same cave with Sarah and so were Isaac & Rebekah, Jacob & Leah. I say credible evidence because of the verifiable findings of the late Ron Eldon Wyatt, such as: Noah’s ark in Turkey, the real Mt. Sinai in northwest Saudi Arabia (in the land of Midian), the real Red Sea crossing site (at the mouth of the Wadi Watir and the beach of Nuweiba), the ashen remains of Sodom and Gomorrah (by the Dead Sea), and the burial place at Machpelah (at Hebron in the land of Canaan) THIS is absolutely AWEsome and well worth the time to read:
The Cave of Machpelah written by Ron Wyatt
We are presenting this subject out of its Biblical chronological order because the events connected with it’s discovery, as well as the significance of it, necessitate our placing it with the Ark of the Covenant.
The story of this project must begin in 1979, for it was then that Ron met a young Arab man in Jerusalem at a restaurant he and his boys frequented -- and this young man told Ron of something very strange that was happening at his family’s home in Hebron. (To protect the family’s identity, we will call the young Arab man "James.")
James explained to Ron how members of his family kept seeing what looked like a fire off in the distance from their residence -- at a site on their property. But, he explained that whenever they would see this fire and go to examine it, they would find nothing when they got there. No charred wood -- nothing. He was insistent that Ron come and see it, but Ron felt it was just a "side-track"- a way for James to get Ron to go with him and perhaps stop off at a family member’s shop, where he would be offered a 10% discount. Ron and his sons were working on the Ark of the Covenant site and he didn’t want to waste any precious time, so he did the only thing he knew to do -- he prayed about it. If it rained and he wasn’t able to work the next day, yes, he would go with James. And the next day it rained. Ron never depends on his own wisdom in these matters but asks for a direct sign of God’s will as to what to do.
Surprisingly, James led him right to his family home with no stops. The family is very large- many brothers- and they all lived in the area, some at home with their mother, and some had their own homes. He took Ron to the site and Ron saw nothing. Nothing, that is, except limestone swelling up from beneath the surface of the earth like a giant balloon buried under them. To Ron, this suggested perhaps a cave under their feet. He picked up a large rock and threw it down hard upon the limestone and the resulting thump resounded through the area like a large hollow drum. So he asked James if there was a cave anywhere in the area. The answer was yes. He showed Ron an entrance to a cave which was too small to enter; a site which had become a depositary for discarded junk, just as the site he was excavating in Jerusalem. (When he first pointed to the area he later excavated for the Ark, it too was a junk pile area.)
The family was serious about their story -- they were a bit frightened about the lights they had seen there. And Ron was puzzled - he couldn’t do anything to help them. But he knew the circumstances that had led him here were not of the ordinary sort. And from the beginning, Ron suspected that this was probably the site of the real cave of Machpelah - the burial site of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and their wives. But for the next 14 years, he never saw the site again.
Here’s why I mention the burial site at Machpelah: As with Joseph’s tomb in Egypt, no bones were found in it. Grave robbers loot tombs for gold and such valuables, not bones which have little to no market value. When our MESSIAH gave HIS LIFE for us, we read: Matthew 27:51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; Matthew 27:52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, The grave at Machpelah has an earthquake crack to this day! and the bodies are GONE! Could it be, could it be, that as Abraham:
John 8:56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see MY [Yeshua’s] day: and he saw it, and was glad. could it be that Abraham came out of the grave when YESHUA arose, was seen walking the streets of Jerusalem and was presented to The FATHER as one of The FIRSTFRUITS and is now rejoicing to see OUR DAY???!!! I tend to think so :o))) HalleluYAH!!!
Swappin’ Ends Slip Slidin’ Away TIME is of the essence…

ANGELS UNAWARES OR AWARES
May 19, 2021
Genesis 19 Matthew 15
Genesis 19:1 And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot [Abraham’s nephew, whom Abraham took to raise when Abraham’s brother, Haran, passed away; hence, Abraham’s and Lot’s flocks and herds became so plentiful (because of Abraham’s obedience to YHVH, i presume) becoming such large flocks and herds that Abraham and Lot went separate ways for the sake of sufficient pasture — so, while Lot] sat in the gate of Sodom [where prominent city council members would meet]: and Lot seeing them [the two angels, Lot] rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground; [how did Lot know that these two were ANGELS of the ALMIGHTY?]
Genesis 19:2 And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant's house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night. [and you know the rest of the story, about how the city was full of homosexuals who wanted to “know” these two angels (see Genesis 4:1 And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from YeHoVaH.)]
How did Lot recognize these two angels as being angels? i am mindful of:
Hebrews 13:2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
Lot seems to know who and what these two angels are! Lot “rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground” and invited them to lodge within Lot’s house. Did Lot have the Spiritual gift of discernment? These things tend to boggle my mind, as i Selah (pause) and muse (think). In our hustle-bustle bumper-to-bumper lives, with brief rest at Amusement parks (the prefix, “A,” means NOT and muse means (think) and many people pay good money at Amusement parks to NOT think! Some do the same thing at church and i Selah and Muse.
If there really is a “GREATER EXODUS” coming soon, will we recognize our GUIDE OUT-OF-TOWN? If our Exodus is straight up, to meet HIM in the clouds, will we recognize HIM? (First Thessalonians 4:17)
1 Thessalonians 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
How well do i know HIM? The 12 Tribes of Israel are MARRIED to YHVH and should KNOW HIM, even as Adam KNEW Eve and multiplied and filled the Earth. YHVH’s SON is now seeking a Wife. I am “betrothed” (engaged) to HIM, having agreed to HIS marriage Ketubah (Jewish prenuptial agreement) — even as Joseph and Mary were “betrothed” before they “knew” each other. All of the agreement must be kept, even BEFORE the WEDDING and this is the pleasure of my LIFE!
Meanwhile back-at-the-ranch, Lot escaped Sodom, with his two daughters, they got him drunk, laid with him, conceived, and the firstborn of the firstborn was Moab. Plain and simple, Moab is the product of incest. Hang onto your keebs :o))
Ruth, who entered the commonwealth of Israel by marriage to the “kinsman redeemer” BOAZ, making MOABITESS Ruth the mother of Obed who is the father of Jesse who is the father of David who is the Great ancestor of YESHUA :o)))
But WHOA! Wait!! Who were the parents of BOAZ? Do ya remember Joshua sending two spies into Jericho, who lodged with the innkeeper, Rahab, in Joshua chapter 1? (my KJV says she was a “harlot” and i disagree) Rahab was an innkeeper who hid the two spies under a pile of FLAX upon the roof (Joshua 2:6, which also says that Rahab was an orderly lady). FLAX is what bed sheets were made of. Have you ever made your own bed sheets from FLAX? Try it and see if you have any extra time for hanky-panky. I believe Rahab was a very virtuous lady who ultimately married one of the spies, SALMON, and to that marriage the firstborn was BOAZ :o)))
“Jones suggests that Salmon was one of the two spies whom Joshua sent to Jericho after he took command when Moses died. ... Rahab's confession of faith in the God of Israel must have impressed Salmon greatly. The most likely time for the birth of Boaz is 2568 AM, when Salmon and Rahab were 35 years old. Jul 15, 2010”
Rahab was of the Gentiles (NON-Israelis) in the city of Jericho and was “graffed in among” Israel (Romans 11:17) becoming an in-LAW (= in-TORAH) via marriage to an Israeli. This is exciting, and here’s why:
This year is a DOUBLE BLESSING for MaraDale and me :o)) On our calendar, as we observe, today is day 46 of counting the Omer. Sunday, May 23, 2021 will be day 50 PENTEcost = SHAVUOT and we are pleading for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit this coming weekend; AND, it will be the second time because we celebrated SHAVUOT this past week end on the Colorado Western Slope with the most HOLY group of HEBREW SAINTS that we have ever known!! Our Dearly beloved Brother Dillard invited us personally to celebrate with his fellowship — we did — and we were blessed beyond measure!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am totally convinced that Dillard is a genuine Israeli, literally of one of the 12 Tribes of Israel. In his blessings before each meal, he quotes the SHEMA — “Hear, O! Israel…” and he is a genuine eternal Sibling with YESHUA, MaraDale, and me, who all have the same FATHER in Heaven. On the other hand, i am convinced that my ancestors are of one of the other 70 nations scattered from the tower of Babel, even as Rahab or Ruth (which BTW is my mother’s name :o) There is much debate as to when First Thessalonians 4:17 will actually happen; and yet, when it happens, my Brother Dillard (an Israeli) and me (a non-Israeli wild branch, who is being “graffed in among them”) both of us will be “caught up” at the last trump!! BUT, have you ever noticed that when YESHUA returns to reign over the Earth for 1,000 years that only HIS new Wife returns with HIM and there is no mention of YHVH’s Wife returning from the Marriage Supper of The LAMB?!! I am totally convinced that at the catching up, ISRAEL will be Reunited with Her Husband YHVH for the final time and will remain with YHVH in Heaven forevermore. Israel will have done Her job. As for me and my house, we will serve The LORD here on this planet for 1,000 years with YESHUA our new HUSBAND.
YESHUA was sent first to reconcile the lost sheep of Israel with Her Husband YHVH and then YESHUA ascended to the right hand of the FATHER. Then, on SHAVUOT, the Holy Spirit (Whom i think of as “Eliezer”) was sent speaking TORAH in ALL languages for the ENTIRE world! I think of the Holy Spirit as Eliezer because it was Abrahams servant Eliezer who went in search of a bride for Isaac. Right now, The HOLY SPIRIT is in search of a Bride for YHVH’s SON! On August 21, 2017 when the great American eclipse was best seen from Alliance, Nebraska and I saw the DIAMOND GEM as the edge of the solar ring — I raised both hands high and YELLED “I DO!” I have accepted HIS marriage proposal and am now delightfully enjoying the-tie-that-binds in the marriage Ketubah, even as Israel is with Her HUSBAND YHVH!!
Whichever calendar you use to celebrate SHAVUOT… please Please PLEASE draw near to the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/ISRAEL. As Elvis used to sing, “It’s NOW or never…”
YeHoVaH IS adding HIS blessing to the reading of HIS entire Holy Bible. AMEN.

Hebrew Words Defined
by Brad Scott
"What is truth?" Pilate asked Yeshua‘ that same question. It is an important question. We seem to always want to know the truth. When I listen to anyone speak, I want them to speak the truth. We ask our children to always tell the truth. When we catch them lying, we always commend them for finally telling the truth. When someone is called to testify in court, they are asked to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. No one wants to believe a lie. Everybody wants the truth. But, scripturally speaking, just what is the truth?
In Yochanan (John), Yeshua‘ says something very revealing to the Yehudim who believed on Him. He said:
Yochanan (John) 8:31-32 If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
The verse appears in many places other than bible studies and sermons. It is very often carved on government buildings and court houses, but do they know what they are saying? Let's back up a few verses. In verse thirty, Yochanan says that these words were spoken to those who believed on Him. Then He turns to a specific group of people who believed on Him in verse thirty one. Those Yehudim. Why did the Ruach haQodesh make it a point to single them out? Could it be that they knew the Scriptures (Yochanan 5:39)? In context, I believe so. It makes perfect sense for Yeshua‘ to make this statement to them rather than believing gentiles. He singles out those who have always been in the word of YHVH, but have only so far honored Him with their lips. He makes it a point to tell us that these Yehudim now believe on Him. Then He says to those Yehudim, "If ye continue ..." The Greek word used here is meinete (μείνητε). It is in what is known as the aorist tense. In this context, the aorist tense expresses a dwelling, or abiding sense. This word is translated as abiding, or dwelling in the New Testament (Mattityahu (Matthew) 10:11, Yochanan 5:38, 2Corinthians 9:9). In our verse it carries the idea of remaining. As a matter of fact, in verse 35 of chapter 8, this same word is used. "And the servant abideth (μένει) not in the house forever; but the Son abideth (μένει) forever." So you see that Yeshua‘ is speaking to believing Yehudim, and asking them to remain in His words, and they will know the truth and the truth will make them free. Free from what? Free from SIN! Not free from YHVH's words, commandments, or laws. Let's look at the very next verse. "They answered him, We are Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man. How sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?" Yeshua‘ answered them, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever commits sin is the servant of sin." Yeshua‘ is saying that His words set you free from bondage to sin. He is saying to those who know the words of ’Elohiym that if they remain in them, these same words will free them from bondage. This is clearly typified in the exodus from bondage in Egypt. The Hebrews are enslaved to a sinful, worldly, pagan system, and YHVH frees them and takes them to Mt. Sinai to receive His words. When these words are obeyed, they bless you and free you. When disobeyed, these same words stand against you.
Let's go to the New Testament dictionary now and define what Yeshua‘ meant when He said that He was the way, the truth, and the life.
Mizemor (Psalm) 119:142 Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is truth.
Melakhiym Alef (1 Kings) 2:3-4 And keep the charge of YHVH thy ’Elohiym, to walk in His way, to keep His statutes, and His commandments, and His judgments, and His testimonies, as it is written in the law of Moses, that thou mayest prosper in all that thou doest, and whithersoever thou turnest thyself: That YHVH may continue His word which he spake concerning me, saying, If thy children take heed to their way, to walk before me in truth with all their heart and with all their soul, there shall not fail thee a man on the throne of Israel.
Male’akiy (Malachi) 2:6 The law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was not found in his lips: he walked with me in peace and equity, and did turn many away from iniquity.
Mizemor (Psalm) 138:2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou has magnified thy word above all thy name.
Mizemor (Psalm) 40:11 Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O YHVH; let thy loving-kindness and thy truth continually preserve me.
Mizemor (Psalm) 119:151 Thou art near O YHVH; and all thy commandments are truth.
Mizemor (Psalm) 119:160 Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth forever. [How Long?]
Mizemor (Psalm) 33:4 For the word of YHVH is right; and all His works are done in truth.
Mizemor (Psalm) 85:11 Truth shall spring out of the earth, and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
Isn't that last verse precious? The same truth that looks down from heaven will also spring forth from the earth. WOW! Who could that be? Yeshua‘ of course. Yeshua‘ claimed to be the truth, but now we know what the meaning of truth is. It is the laws and commandments of YHVH. His teaching and instructions that set us free, that have now been manifested in the flesh.
Let's look at some verses in the New Testament with this definition.
Yochanan (John) 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
2 Kefa (2Peter) 2:2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
Yochanan (John) 14:6 Yeshua‘ saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me. [i.e., The words of YHVH.]
Romans 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
Ephesians 6:14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; ...
3 Yochanan (John) 4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
Yochanan (John) 18:37-38 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Yeshua‘ answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice. Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and said unto them, I find in Him no fault at all.
The Tanakh [Old Testament] is packed full of words that foretell all about the Messiah. Israel was warned again and again as to who He would be. They were told that He would speak according to the law and the testimony (Yesha’yahu (Isaiah) 8:20). That He would be a prophet like unto Mosheh. (Devariym (Deuteronomy) 15:15-19). They understood that to recognize the Messiah was to recognize His words. That He would speak according to the words of YHVH, and that His words would be truth. YHVH's words are truth and purified seven times (Mizemor 12:6). There is no error or fault in them. This is how you know it is YHVH. His words are pure and holy and without fault. Pilate testified to this when he proclaimed that he could find no fault in Yeshua‘.
It is this Yeshua‘ that we need to proclaim to a lost world. Our children also need to know that the JESUS (Yeshua‘) that they claim as Master is all the words of YHVH come in the flesh. This is what the scriptures teach that we receive. We need to teach that what we are accepting is much more than just our Savior, and that His words, all His words are truth and His commandments are not burdensome, but will set us free. (1 Yochanan 5:3).
So, as you can see, there are many words that all point back to the same thing. The same thing is true of the New Testament's use of righteousness, wisdom, liberty, walking, knowledge, and being blessed. Next time, we will take some lengthy time out to define the word faith. This word has clearly become meaningless in our culture. How was it understood in the first century? Was this word already well defined in the Tanakh? This will be the most important concept that we will undertake. The defining of this word will set the foundation for all scriptural doctrine.
Shalom Alecheim! [Peace be upon you!]
the One Covenant series
by haRold Smith
a citizen of the Commonwealth (Ephesians 2:19)"
...'BY MYSELF,' I have sworn,' declares YaHoVeH, 'because you have done this thing and have not withheld your son, your only son, I will surely bless you, and I will surely multiply your seed as the stars of heaven and as the sand that is on the seashore. And your seed shall possess the gate of his enemies, and in your seed because you have obeyed my voice'." Genesis 22:15-18
"Now the promises were made to Abraham and to his seed It does not say, 'And to seeds referring to many, but referring to one, 'And to your seed, who is the Messiah. This is what I mean: the law, which came 430 years afterward, does not annul a covenant previously ratified by YaHoVeH, so as to make the promise void. For if the inheritance comes by the law, it no longer comes by promise; but YaHoVeH gave it to Abraham by a promise. Why then the Law? It was added because of transgressions, until the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator." Galatians 3:16-19
"For I say that the Messiah became a servant of the Hebrew people, (to the circumcised) in order to show YaHoVeH's truthfulness by making good His promises to the Patriarchs (the Hebrew Fathers), and in order to show His mercy by causing the Gentiles to glorify YaHoVeH - as it is written in the Tanakh (Original Writings), 'a servant of the Hebrew people, Because of this I will acknowledge you among the Gentiles and sing praise to your name'." Romans 15:8-9
While there are many covenants made in scripture, there is but One Covenant that YaHoVeH made with Himself. Like a diamond and the Character of YaHoVeH, we find there are several facets to this Covenant; but, there is only One Covenant that has to do with YaHoVeH Himself, His Plan and His Purpose toward mankind. That Purpose is to bring Life out of death and to make that Life accessible to anyone who would come to Him with a humble and contrite spirit by accepting Him for who He says He Is (click on highlighted words to view content). From the beginning, the YaHoVeH's unchanging, underlying motivation has been to bring all mankind to LIFE - not life to mankind (Hosea 1:10). YaHoVeH is the source of LIFE and 1John 1:5 says that LIFE IS Light (see Who Is The Word scripturally). Thus, we see YaHoVeH's desire for a people, a family to live in His Life and thereby become a testimony, a Light to the Nations - the rest of mankind. What rest of mankind you say? Words mean things. To properly understand scripture from YaHoVeH's perspective, we must constantly be reminded that ALL the books of scripture were written by Hebrews influenced out of a Hebrew culture that produced a unique Hebrew perspective being conveyed primarily to a Hebrew audience which understood the nuances of the Hebrew language. To properly understand what these words mean necessitates viewing them from the Hebrew perspective they were written in - not our current English culture. "Reading the scriptures in a translation is like kissing your new bride through a veil" (Haim Nachman Bialik, Hebrew Poet, 1873-1934).
the One Covenant series

a citizen of the Commonwealth (Ephesians 2:19)
"But as it is, Yeshua haMaschiach has obtained a ministry that is much more excellent than the old as the covenant He mediates is better, since it is enacted on better promises. For, if that first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no occasion to look for a second. For He finds fault with them when He says: 'Behold, the days are coming, declares YaHoVeH, when I will establish a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah, not like the covenant that I made with their fathers on the day when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt. For they did not continue in my covenant, and so I showed no concern for them, declares YaHoVeH. For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares YaHoVeH: I will put my laws into their minds, and write them on their hearts, and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. And they shall not teach, each one his neighbor and each one his brother, saying, 'Know YaHoVeH,' for they shall all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest. For I will be merciful toward their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more'." Hebrews 8:6-12
When you read Hebrews 9:15 (click on highlighted words to view content) in the modern translations of the NKJV, NASB, NIV, NRSV or ESV, you will find that the Greek diatheke (used in the LXX for the Hebrew briyth which means "covenant, alliance or pledge") is correctly translated "covenant," not "testament." But simply because these translations have corrected the word does not mean they have corrected the 400 years of theological error that followed the King James error. We need some history to see just how influential this little mistake has been. When Jerome translated the LXX into the Latin Vulgate (the version used by the Roman Catholic Church for nearly 1500 years and subsequently passed on to the Catholic Protestant movement), he correctly translated Jeremiah 31:31, using the Latin feriam for the Greek diatheke for the Hebrew briyth. No problem here. But when he translated the citation of this same verse in Hebrews 8:9, he did not use the Latin feriam (or even the synonym pactum). Instead he used the Latin testamentum. With this mistake, he introduced the idea of a "new testament" - which the writers of the KJV carried forward some centuries later by translating it as the English "testament". Unfortunately, even though the Greek word diatheke appears more than 300 times in the LXX, it is translating the Hebrew briyth - which NEVER means "testament." Why is that? It is because a "testament" is the last declaration of a single person for the disposal of property upon death. A covenant, however, is a declaration of terms of a relationship between two parties who are both alive. A covenant has no authority once one of the parties dies (as Paul makes abundantly clear in Romans). But a testament does. It is a death statement, not a life statement. And since it takes effect only upon the death of its maker, it implies that what was formerly true is no longer the case. The person has died. By legitimizing the idea of a "testament", the Catholic translation allowed the former covenant of YaHoVeH with Israel to be treated as if it no longer applied - the former agreement was over because one of the parties was dead, i.e., YaHoVeH rejected Israel and offered up a "new testament." Therefore, all of the previous requirements that kept the former agreement in place were now dead, null and void - in spite of Yeshua's proclamation of Matthew 5:17-19, which was subsequently redefined and explained away. The thinking was that since the death proclamation closed that "old" way of relating to YaHoVeH - now the Christian faith could rewrite the agreement. This mistake influences even the ASB translation of Hebrews 9:15-16. It suggests that the mediator must die because if there is a covenant, "there must of necessity be the death of the one who made it." But this isn't correct. It is not the mediator who dies because a covenant requires living parties - it is the symbol of the commitment between the parties. The idea of a "testament" influences this incorrect translation. On page 45 of his book, Daniel Gruber writes: "Hebrews 9:15 speaks of Messiah as the mediator of the new covenant. That means that Messiah is not the maker of the covenant. He is the mediator between the parties making the covenant. The parties of the New Covenant, as presented in Jeremiah 31:31-34 and Hebrews 8:8-12, are YaHoVeH and the house of Israel." He goes on to say: "This simple mistranslation, misrepresentation, and misunderstanding are foundational to virtually every Christian theology. It creates the illusion of a conflict within the Bible itself" (Ibid., p. 47). The only reason this issue becomes confusing is, primarily, because we tend to look at what these words are describing through the lenses of traditional and cultural filters. In Hebrews 9:17 we are told that someone does die - but, who? As stated previously, it's not the mediator, Yeshua - and it can not be YaHoVeH since He is the Source of Life. That leaves only one party, Israel - since the covenant was made between YaHoVeH and Israel. Verse 15 sets up this premise by pointing out that there were transgressions made toward that covenant - which had to be by Israel since YaHoVeH can not transgress Himself. It is in verse 16 we are reminded that where a will is involved (whether it be an individual will, as in Adam, or a collective will, as in Israel) a death must be established - because anything apart from Life is death. Thus, we find Hebrews 8:12 able to proclaim" "For I will be merciful toward their (Israel's) iniquities, and I will remember their (Israel's) sins no more" because it was the darkness of their sin of self-determination that led to a separation from the Source of Life Who is Light.

Who is really saved? Will Churchgoers get into heaven by simply saying a prayer? Are good works and faith related? What does being saved really mean? What are the requirements of Christian life? Watch this video for some of the answers.
There is nothing new under the sun: It's not the first time in history we have had a technology explosion and it’s not the first time the individuals responsible for that technology explosion have destroyed the planet
Lucifer (Le génie du mal) door Willem Geefs (Sint-Pauluskathedraal, Luik)Ecclesiastes 1:9; The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: there is nothing new under the sun.
It's not the first time in history we have had a technology explosion and it’s not the first time the individuals responsible for that technology explosion have destroyed the planet, or at the very least, every living thing on it. What is happening to our planet now, has happened at least once before and possibly " three times, maybe more!” In Luke 17: 26-28, Jesus describes just how it will be here on Earth when He returns - 26, Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man: 27; People were eating and drinking, marrying and being given in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark…That all sounds fairly reasonable, kind of “business as usual” wouldn’t you think? However, we have to look a little deeper to see what this sentence really means. If we go back to Genesis 6: it claims there were “giants” on the Earth in the days of “Noah,” these giants were known as the “Nephilim.” About 500 years after the creation of Adam and Eve, a group of two hundred “sons of God'' better known as angels, (Hebrew, ben ha Elohim) decided to break away from their first estate, (heaven), they left their own habitation and came down to Earth. They were called the “Watchers.” the leaders of this band of rebel angels are called, Semyaza their leader, Arakibal, Tamiel, Ramuel, Danel, Ezeqeqeel, Barakel, Asael, Armaros, Batraal, Ananel, Zavebe, Samsapeel, Satarel, Turel, Yomyael and Sariel." The reason these two hundred angels decided to leave heaven and come down to Earth was thought to be two-pronged, they wanted power but they also lusted after the women of earth, the daughters of “Adam.” So the sons of God, "angels" took the daughters of Adam and mated with them, the Bible says “married.” The offspring from this “unnatural” bonding produced an offspring of giants, some experts claim some were 45 ft tall or 14 metres." Bigger than a house! What the fallen angels were trying to do was to create a “HYBRID RACE,” which of course they did but in doing so they contaminated the human race, created by God. This was their plan all along, Satan himself the original fallen angel wanted to rid the planet of all humans (he knew in years to come a Messiah would be sent to save the human race, so Satan devised a plan to destroy it before this could happen!) He filled the earth with their own corrupted flesh. The angels didn't just mate with the women of the earth but they also brought with them technology unknown to humans at that time. They taught men to make weapons and armour and taught the women how to make jewellery and to beautify their eyes with makeup. They introduced lust and unnatural sex. Other fallen angels taught mankind astrology, astronomy, sorcery and how to predict weather patterns amongst many other things. The Nephilim also corrupted animals, breeding different life forms together and even interbreeding men with animals. Slowly society crumbled, all life on Earth became contaminated and corrupt, the world became wicked and God had no option but to destroy it. "The Ancient Book of Enoch'' The Ancient Book of Enoch recounts the history of the angels that fell to Earth in the days of Jared, Enoch’s father, which preceded the collapse of all morality on Earth resulting in the flood of Noah. The book testifies to the fallen angels leaving their true station (heaven) and marrying human women (lusting after) on Earth and creating the Nephilim, a race of giants who ravaged the Earth. Enoch was born the 7th generation from Adam and he was a witness to the terrible destruction the 200 fallen angels had brought upon the earth. Enoch tells us in his book the giants, the offspring of the Watchers, consumed all the food men could offer, (it is thought the population of earth in this period was 9 billion) and when men could no longer sustain them they devoured mankind, then they began to devour one another. The watchers were judged and bound by Jehovah’s most powerful angel, Michael and buried in a place called Tartarus, known as the pit of darkness, for a total of 70 generations until the day of their judgement till their last judgement be passed and will then be thrown in the fiery pit for eternity. However, they will be released for a short time during the “Great Tribulation.” "The Ancient Book of Enoch'' is not canonized, however, Enoch is mentioned in the Bible, in Genesis, Hebrews and by Jude in the New Testament and Enoch did find favour in God’s eyes. His book, The Ancient Book of Enoch contains numerous prophecies about the flood which happened in Noah's time and the fire judgment which is yet to come. He also prophesied the two comings of the Messiah, the first being 2,000 years ago as we know and the one to come after the judgment of fire in the future. Enoch also prophesied the Messiah would be the Son of God and that He would shed His blood to redeem mankind and all these prophecies he made 2,500 years before Christ came to Earth as the Messiah, all incredibly accurate! The Nephilim were renowned for changing the DNA of the animal and human species to create half man half animals as seen depicted on ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics. Throughout history giant skeletons have been discovered all over the world, however, the Smithsonian Institute decided to confiscate the remains of the giants because they did not fit with the establishment's theory of evolution. A US Supreme Court ruling forced the Smithsonian institution to release classified papers dating from the early 1900s that proves the organization was involved in a major historical cover-up of evidence showing giant human remains in the “tens of thousands” which had been uncovered all across America. The remains were ordered to be destroyed by high-level administrators to protect the mainstream chronology of human evolution at the time according to the American Institution of Alternative Archeology (AIAA). Just as in the days of Noah, mankind today is changing humans, animals, food, plants and crops by tinkering with DNA. The military is creating “super soldiers” by changing the genes of certain individuals. For example, a super-soldier will have the sight of an eagle, the scent capabilities of a dog, the hearing capability of an owl and the power of a lion. He, she, or even “it” will be able to run for days without water or food. Today, we can order an inexpensive, specific and simple-to-use gene-editing tool online and change our own DNA, it’s called CRISPR. The so-called “Mark Of The Beast!” Modern man has been dabbling in genetic experiments since the ‘50s, altering everything from food to babies. Every day we read of more staggering discoveries and breakthroughs in the science world. I don’t think we are too far away from being tempted with "an offer the world can’t refuse." Imagine, it would have to be an offer of a lifetime, something like this; “come to your nearest vaccination centre and receive a gift from your government. A gift of an extra ten, disease-free years, just receive a tiny chip insertion in your hand and a small neuro link inserted into your head and a painless DNA changing vaccination and hey presto, you're done!” The chip will enable you to receive payments into your bank and allow you to pay bills, in a cashless society, the neuro link will enable you to receive medical check-ups and updates and receive phone calls and allow access to the net, the vaccination will protect you against disease for the coming 10 years. Anybody without the chip, neuro link or the vaccine will be de-franchised and not be allowed a bank account, which in the new cashless society would be a life-threatening problem.

It's amazing how history can be skewed. We rationalize that if everyone is in agreement to what has been taught to us for millennia that it must be truth and nothing can stand in the way not even the events that led to the gospel according to the organized church. Jesus did what no one could do by just speaking. No one ever thought to challenge the Roman Empire because for thousands of years that's all the multitudes knew as truth until Jesus. Roman Emperor Constantine accomplished what no one could accomplish apart from Lucifer's ability to deceive mankind at the beginning of time. What Constantine started in 325 AD at the Council of Nicaea was finished in 397 AD. at the Council of Carthage. The Roman Catholic Church was finely successful in capturing the spirit of the followers of Jesus. On the 28th of August of 397 AD under the tutelage of the Bishop of Carthage, with imperial and papal approval, issued a definitive canon (legal decree) of Scripture setting out all the texts that form what is now universally called the bible.

Yoga is not just stretching, and it is not just exercise - it is pagan worship that does not belong in Christian lives. Yoga corporations have infiltrated elementary schools, resulting in mandatory yoga classes which teach Hindu religious practices. In this investigative report that was a year in creating, Doreen Virtue and former yoga instructor Jessica Smith interview Jennifer Sedlock about her lawsuit against her child’s school district over the yoga crisis.
This video includes scientific data and academic research about yoga’s detrimental effects upon children physically and spiritually, and an interview with a Christian sports medicine chiropractor in San Diego who is currently treating over 200 patients for yoga-related injuries.
Children’s young developing bodies are harmed by yoga, in addition to the pressure to be thin that comes with yoga. There are real spiritual dangers from practicing yoga and mindfulness meditation, including increased nightmares, increased anxiety, and difficulties in focusing in school.
Everett Roeth studied and trained in yoga for hundreds of hours in his pursuit of healing and truth, until he arrived upon the knowledge of Christ. Now, as a Christian, he is exposing the dangers of yoga and the truth behind this spiritual Hindu discipline. This is not just stretching and exercise, but many times it can be a willful worship of demons and Hindu entities.
