THE TWO HOUSES OF ISRAEL


This is Part 7 of Part 8 of our study on The Two Houses of Israel. If you missed Part 1, click HERE. If you missed Part 2, click HERE. If you missed Part 3, click HERE. If you missed Part 4, click HERE. If you missed Part 5, click HERE. If you missed Part 6, click HERE.


The cultivated olive tree depicts the House of Judah, which provided the foundation for the early Church (see Acts 2:41; 21:20). This is the olive tree of salvation, for Yeshua said that “salvation is of the Jews” (see John 4:22). Paul, harkening back to what Jeremiah said earlier (see Jeremiah 11:16), portrays those Jews who rejected Yeshua as branches which were broken off from this cultivated olive tree. They were removed because they did not believe in the Messiah Yahweh sent to His people.


Romans 11:25-3625 For I do not wish you to be ignorant of this secret, brothers, lest you should be wise in your own estimation, that hardening in part has come over Yisra’ĕl (the Jews), until the completeness of the gentiles has come in. 26 And so all Yisra’ĕl (Ephraim and Judah) shall be saved, as it has been written, “The Deliverer (Yeshua) shall come out of Tsiyon [Zion], and He shall turn away wickedness from Yaʽaqoḇ (Jacob), (see Isaiah 59:20; Psalm 14:7) 27 and this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins.” (see Isaiah 59:20-21) 28 Truly, as regards the Good News they (the Jews) are enemies for your sake, but concerning the choice they (the Jews) are beloved for the sake of the fathers. 29 For the gifts and the calling of Elohim are not to be repented of. 30 For as you (gentiles) also at one time disobeyed Elohim, but now have obtained compassion through their (Jews) disobedience, 31 so also these (the Jews) have now disobeyed, that through the compassion shown you they (the Jews) also might obtain compassion. 32 For Elohim has shut them (the Jews) all up to disobedience, in order to have compassion on all. 33 Oh, the depth of riches, and wisdom and knowledge of Elohim! How unsearchable His judgments and untraceable His ways! 34 “For who has known the mind of יהוה (Yahweh)? Or who has become His counsellor?” 35 “Or who first gave to Him, and it shall be given back to him?” 36 Because of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are all, to whom be esteem forever. Amĕn.” (The Scriptures Translation) [Emphasis and comments added]


Here Paul tells us that Israel (specifically the House of Judah, the only part of Israel that remained identifiable at that time) has been blinded to the truth for a period of time. However, he says that wild olive branches will continue to be grafted in to the cultivated olive tree to replace those branches broken off until “the fullness of the Gentiles” has been added.


What is meant by the phrase “the fullness of the Gentiles”? Does the Bible tell us who this group is? Absolutely! Let’s go back to the beginning and look at some of Israel’s history:


Genesis 48:1-191 Now it came to pass after these things that Joseph was told, “Indeed your father is sick”; and he took with him his two sons, Manasseh and Ephraim. 2 And Jacob was told, “Look, your son Joseph is coming to you”; and Israel strengthened himself and sat up on the bed. 3 Then Jacob said to Joseph: “God Almighty appeared to me at Luz in the land of Canaan and blessed me, 4 and said to me, ‘Behold, I will make you fruitful and multiply you, and I will make of you a multitude of people, and give this land to your descendants after you as an everlasting possession. 5 And now your two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, who were born to you in the land of Egypt before I came to you in Egypt, are mine; as Reuben and Simeon, they shall be mine. 6 Your offspring whom you beget after them shall be yours; they will be called by the name of their brothers in their inheritance. 7 But as for me, when I came from Padan, Rachel died beside me in the land of Canaan on the way, when there was but a little distance to go to Ephrath; and I buried her there on the way to Ephrath (that is, Bethlehem).” 8 Then Israel saw Joseph’s sons, and said, “Who are these?” 9 And Joseph said to his father, “They are my sons, whom God (Yahweh) has given me in this place.” And he said, “Please bring them to me, and I will bless them.” 10 Now the eyes of Israel were dim with age, so that he could not see. Then Joseph brought them near him, and he kissed them and embraced them. 11 And Israel said to Joseph, “I had not thought to see your face; but in fact, God (Yahweh) has also shown me your offspring!” 12 So Joseph brought them from beside his knees, and he bowed down with his face to the earth. 13 And Joseph took them both, Ephraim with his right hand toward Israel’s left hand, and Manasseh with his left hand toward Israel’s right hand, and brought them near him. 14 Then Israel stretched out his right hand and laid it on Ephraim’s head, who was the younger, and his left hand on Manasseh’s head, guiding his hands knowingly, for Manasseh was the firstborn. 15 And he blessed Joseph, and said: “God (Yahweh), before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked, the God (Elohim/Mighty One) who has fed me all my life long to this day, 16 the Angel who has redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; let my name be named upon them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.” 17 Now when Joseph saw that his father laid his right hand on the head of Ephraim, it displeased him; so he took hold of his father’s hand to remove it from Ephraim’s head to Manasseh’s head. 18 And Joseph said to his father, “Not so, my father, for this one is the firstborn; put your right hand on his head.” 19 But his father refused and said, “I know, my son, I know. He also shall become a people, and he also shall be great; but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his descendants shall become a multitude of nations [melo hagoyim].” (NKJV) [Emphasis and comments added]


Here we see the deathbed blessing of Israel upon Ephraim when he adopted him and his brother Manasseh. Israel prophesied that Ephraim would become “a multitude of nations.” In Hebrew, this phrase is melo hagoyim, which literally means “fullness of the Gentiles.” The tribe of Ephraim was the leader of the northern House of Israel, and Ephraim came to be representative of all 10 lost tribes. It seems clear when the Old Testament references are understood properly that Paul had the descendants of these tribes in mind when he spoke of the “fullness of the Gentiles” and the “wild olive tree” in Romans 11!


In Romans 11:25, Paul told us that partial blindness has happened to the Jews until the “fullness of the Gentiles” comes in. He goes on to say in verse 26, “And so all Israel will be saved.” The Greek phrase kai houtos, translated “and so” here, is very important for us to understand. Literally, these words mean “and in this manner.” A better translation of this passage would be “blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles (i.e., Ephraim) has come in. And in this manner all Israel will be saved.”


Paul tells us that it is through this very process of grafting lost Israelites back into the cultivated olive tree that all of Israel (all 12 tribes) would be saved. This is a clear indication that many (if not most) of those so-called Gentiles who are being grafted into the olive tree are actually lost Israelites being brought back into the fold. The “fullness of the Gentiles” (Ephraim) coming back to reunite with those from Judah who are not blinded to the identity of their Messiah is the foundation for the eventual salvation of ALL of Israel!


Please do not misunderstood me here. I am not saying that ONLY physical Israelites are being called by Yahweh into the “church.” The Tanakh (Old Testament) shows clearly that Gentiles NOT of Israelite stock have been included in Yahweh’s congregation (see Exodus 12:38; Isaiah 56:3-8). The Eternal has always made a way for godly foreigners to become part of His chosen people. But Scripture seems to indicate that, for the most part, those who have been called by Yahweh to His son Yeshua (John 6:44, 65) are physical Israelites, both from the House of Judah (the cultivated olive tree) and the House of Israel (the wild olive tree).


One of the pivotal prophecies given to us in the Scriptures is the prophecy of the New Covenant which clearly shows that this understanding is correct. The original prophecy is given in the Old Testament book of Jeremiah:


Jeremiah 31:31-3431 See, the days are coming,” declares יהוה (Yahweh), “when I shall make a new covenant with the house of Yisra’ĕl and with the house of Yehuḏah (see Hebrews 8:8-12, 10:16-17). 32 not like the covenant I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Mitsrayim (Egypt), My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them,” declares יהוה (Yahweh). 33For this is the covenant I shall make with the house of Yisra’ĕl after those days,” declares יהוה: “I shall put My Torah (Law/Teachings and Instructions) in their inward parts, and write it on their hearts. And I shall be their Elohim (Mighty One), and they shall be My people. 34 And no longer shall they teach, each one his neighbour, and each one his brother, saying, ‘Know יהוה,’ for they shall all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them,” declares יהוה. “For I shall forgive their crookedness, and remember their sin no more.” (The Scriptures Translation) [Emphasis and comments added]


This prophecy plainly states that Yahweh will make the New Covenant with two specific entities: (1) The House of Israel, and (2) the House of Judah. In his letter to the Messianic Jews of the early Church, the author of Hebrews cites this passage:


Hebrews 8:7-127 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then no place would have been sought for a second. 8 For finding fault with them, He says, “See, the days are coming,” says יהוה (Yahweh), “when I shall conclude with the house of Yisra’ĕl and with the house of Yehuḏah a renewed covenant, 9 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Mitsrayim (Egypt), because they did not continue in My covenant, and I disregarded them,” says יהוה (Yahweh). 10 Because this is the covenant that I shall make with the house of Yisra’ĕl after those days, says יהוה, giving My laws in their mind, and I shall write them on their hearts, and I shall be their Elohim, and they shall be My people. 11 And they shall by no means teach each one his neighbour, and each one his brother, saying, ‘Know יהוה,’ because they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them. 12 Because I shall forgive their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawlessnesses I shall no longer remember. ” (The Scriptures Translation) [Emphasis and comments added]


The author of Hebrews reiterates Yahweh’s promise to make a new covenant with the two houses of Israel in the New Testament. His citation is a second witness to this fundamental aspect of Yahweh’s plan. Yet how many myriads of believers have read this prophecy and missed the plain statement that the New Covenant would be made with the House of Israel and the House of Judah? There are no other people groups He has made the New/Renewed Covenant with. Obviously, just as many Jews have been blinded to the identity of their Messiah, so too have many Christians been blinded to their own identity. There is no telling how many Israelites in different Christian Churches all around the world and they do not know “who” they really are. If they understood “who” they are, then when they read the Scriptures/Bible and they come across the term “Israel/Israelite/House of Israel/House of Judah,” it is speaking directly to them and no one else. This will be a rude awakening for many in the Christian Churches once they learn this hidden truth kept from them by our enemy, Satan the Deceiver. Make no mistake about it, Satan goes to Church also along with his followers. He knows how to deceive the Body of Messiah Yeshua. He has had centuries of practice.


People do not understand the Biblical Teaching on the reunification of the two houses for a variety of reasons. The traditional teaching of the Church for centuries now has been that the Gentiles, who have no ties to Israel, have replaced Yahweh’s chosen people (whether it be simply for a time, or permanently). In fact, the “Gentile” nature of the Church has been cited as one of the reasons that the Law, Yahweh’s Teachings and Instructions, no longer applies to Christian believers. What a tremendous change of attitude it would require if those Christian believers came to understand that they were probably descendants of those who stood before Mount Sinai and heard the voice of Almighty Yahweh! It sure would change their “attitude.”


But there are also those who reject this understanding for the same reason that the Pharisees and Sadducees rejected Yeshua: they are afraid it will “take away” their perceived position(s). Many Messianic Jewish groups and organizations reject this understanding of the reunification of the two houses because they see it as an attack on the position that Yahweh gave the Jews. They see this doctrine as simply Gentile envy of the Jewish status. They have the “attitude” that the “gentiles” coming into the Hebrew Roots of the Christian faith are second class citizens of Israel and that they, the gentiles, should cow-tow to their Jewish brother. This is NOT of Yahweh. This is a man-made fabricated dream/system to control gentiles. Yahweh will deal with the Jews be they Messianic or non-Messianic in the very near future.


In the introduction to James’ epistle, we see a reference to the group James was addressing:

James 1:1Yaʽaqoḇ (Jacob), a servant of Elohim and of the Master יהושע (Yeshua or Yahshua) Messiah, to the twelve tribes who are in the dispersion: Greetings.” (The Scriptures Translation) [Emphasis and comments added]


I want to restate here that ALL Scripture is addressed “To Israel, For Israel and About Israel.”


In an attempt to refute the two-house doctrine, the Messianic Jewish Alliance of America (MJAA) has published an extensive paper entitled The Ephraimite Error. Regarding the introduction to the book of James, this paper says:


James (Ya’akov), the apostle sent to the circumcision, according to Paul (Galatians 2:9), that is, to the Jewish people, not to the gentiles, addresses his epistle “to the 12 tribes who are dispersed abroad” (James 1:1). . . . Ya’akov considered the Jewish people of his day to represent all 12 tribes. (p. 15) [Emphasis added]


This paper also definitively states:


The apostolic record is reinforced by the later rabbinic evidence that the Jewish people in the rabbinic period also saw themselves as comprising “all Israel.” (p. 15) [Emphasis mine]


This concludes our study of Part 7 of Part 8 on The Two Houses of Israel. Stay tuned for Part 8.

 
 

SILVER CHALICE or TIN CUP

December 2, 2021

Second Samuel 8 Matthew 19 – 20

Years ago, in my youth, an elderly man said to me, “When you are finished eating and you are full, it does not matter if you ate steak or beans — you are just as full either way.” Selah, muse…

When our thirst is quenched, does it matter if we drank from a silver chalice or a tin cup?? Silver or tin, gold or brass, brass or bronze… who cares? While reading 2nd Samuel 8 this morning, my KJV says:

2 Samuel 8:7-8 And David took the shields of gold that were on the servants of Hadadezer, and brought them to Jerusalem. And from Betah, and from Berothai, cities of Hadadezer, king David took exceeding much brass.

Brass? The NIV says bronze. The NLT says bronze. The NASB says bronze. In a democracy, by vote, it would be correctly translated, “bronze” and by the dispensations of Darwin, Scofield and Darby, it would be the “Bronze Age” that we’re talking about here. The deck seems stacked against me; and yet, while I am that proverbial “hard-nut-to-crack,” brass is my story “and-I’m-stickin’-to-it.” This is not “to kill for” but it is worth considering why brass is appropriate from my meager perspective:

(from my book, MEMOIRS, pp 28 & 29)

BRASS or BRONZE ?

In 2002, as I had worship wherein I listened to 45 minutes of the NIV on cassette tape while reading along in the KJV book each morning, the passage that caught my attention was II Kings 25:13, regarding the temple built by Solomon and the materials used. Were the building materials of Solomon’s Temple symbolic? Does it matter if it was gold, silver, brass or bronze?

I do not know a lot about bronze, other than that it is used in electric motor armature bushings such as the brush end of an automotive starter motor and it was used for bushings in the old automotive DC generators. Bronze—correct me if I’m wrong—is a darker less brilliant industrial metal, than brass, and usually is not polished. Brass—on the other hand—is used more as an ornamental metal, rather than a working metal. And brass gleams very much as gold when it is polished. When it is polished, is the point of this short excursion.

While I was in the U.S. Air Force—back in the 1960s—we had brass door hardware, specifically door knobs and push plates, that had to be kept gleaming at all times. The brass polishing chore was endless! Maybe there are people who polish bronze, in this way, but it’s something I have never heard of.

Anyway—about keeping the brass polished—I noticed an analogy between gleaming brass and myself with the Lord. For brass to remain untarnished and gleaming, it needs constant rubbing and attention from the one who cares, and that’s my point. In order that I remain radiant for the Lord, I need His constant touch, His constant rubbing—if you will—else I begin to tarnish. Maybe the same analogy can be attached to bronze. I don’t think so. I believe the translators of the NIV have diluted an important piece of information by using the word, “bronze” rather than the Word, “brass.”

Bronze shields, bronze door knobs and bronze industrial parts are dull, with or without polish. The Word of God says “brass.” Brazen as I am, oh Lord, rub me and anoint me that I may shine for You—that the world may know that without You, oh Lord, I tarnish and become dull. Oh! How soon I tarnish without Him!

This polishing process prepares us for the return to our “long home,” (Ecclesiastes 12:5), better known as Heaven [maybe I need to reconsider because our “long home” may possibly be JERUSALEM :o)) At any rate]. I suppose enough has been written on the subject to fill a library or two, yet we all seem to have our own concept of what, where, when and admission price. In listening to the NIV while reading along in the KJV, I noticed a striking difference in the description of what YESHUA Jesus has gone to prepare for us.

John 14:2 KJV In my Father’s house are many MANSIONS:

John 14:2 NIV In my Father’s house are many ROOMS;

Being the visual person that I am, the word “room” brings to mind such as a cheap motel, whereas, “mansion” brings to mind elegance, chandeliers, satin sheets, fine dining, butlers, limousine service and more. If our Father in Heaven does, indeed, have the building materials of the universe, I don’t think He has His Son preparing, for us, a cardboard “room,” but something very special within the “many mansions.” YESHUA Jesus said, In my Father’s house are many mansions: and within this array of MANSIONS, there appears to be varying degrees of status, per Matthew 20:20-23, wherein the mother of James and John asks YESHUA Jesus for positions of status, in Heaven [Jerusalem?], for her sons. By this, I presume that being at the right or left hand of MASHIYACH Christ is the most coveted positions in Heaven [Jerusalem?]. Hence making the other end of the dining table a bit less prominent. And, what about the table waiters? I would be honored to have that job Forever! :o)

But the cart is slightly before the horse, as the “admission fee” is still in question. As I look around and see highly energetic activists who are accomplishing great things, soon my vision pans to me. Not much energy, no great accomplishments, and to be forgotten in a twinkling after I’m gone—by all but HIM who loves me so very much. HE Who looked down on me with the fondest of compassion as HE hung on the cross and bled the blood that washes my sin sick soul as HE said, “I love you and I go to prepare a place for you.And nothing else matters. And because I know how much He loves me, I have a glimpse of what love is. All I can do with the rest of my life is try to reposition myself to fit that mold—the mold of love. I can’t create anything and I have nothing to offer HIM, as I stand naked and penniless before HIM. Only love and loyalty, that’s all I have to offer.

Have you read Crucified By Christians—reprinted under the title, Exquisite Agony, Healing for Christians who have been hurt by other Christians—by Gene Edwards? This book gave me a fresh and new perspective on what has happened, where I am in life, where I’m going and how my Father in Heaven has set the stage for all that was, is and will be. All I really need to do is follow MASHIYACH’s Christ’s example in the garden of Gethsemane, where MASHIYACH Christ said, “Not my will, Father, but Thine.” It is only when we die to ourselves that we can be resurrected in MASHIYACH Christrevived in Spirit—to live the second Spiritual birth—born a new creature in MASHIYACH YESHUA Christ Jesus!

Oh! Thank You YESHUA Jesus for loving such as me! Thank You for paying my “fee.” I’ll go where You want me to go and I’ll do what You want me to do....on earth AND in Heaven [Jerusalem?]. Where HE leads me, I will follow. When HE says, “Peace, be still,” most likely I need more polish :o) When HE hands me my “room” key, the fob may say penthouse, pool side or servant’s quarters—for HE knows where I fit best, where I’ll be in the best company, where I can most successfully continue to worship HIM :o) Thank You YESHUA Jesus !

The Holy Bible is not a blind guide. It is very trust worthy. Hence the importance of a clear understanding of each Word therein. The following is not to insult your intelligence—but merely a refresher in why I love the KJV and how I use the Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance.

Brass or bronze… silver chalice or tin cup, when you’re full you’re full :o)) This takes us to the New Testament with YESHUA Jesus speaking:

Matthew 20:22 But YESHUA Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto HIM, We are able.

HIS “cup” and how HE was “baptized” is another tin can being kicked down the road of religion. BOTH are ALL ABOUT COMMITMENT. Do infants make commitments? They can’t talk but their little mind is saying, “Withhold the bottle and I will SCREAM!” “SCREAM”? Do infants in The LORD SCREAM? Does SCREAM equate with “murmur”??

Exodus 15:24 And the people [read that “children” even “infants” of Israel] murmured [screamed?] against Moses, saying, What shall we drink?

YESHUA is telling us:

Matthew 20:23 And HE saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of MY cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on MY right hand, and on MY left, is not Mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of MY FATHER.

O! By the way, if that is not enough, “At the end o’ the day,” we hear the SCREAMERS:

Matthew 20:12 Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day.

And our MASHIYACH Messiah YESHUA says to you and to me:

Matthew 20:13-16 But HE answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with ME for a penny? Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee. Is it not lawful for ME to do what I will with MINE own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good? So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.

Hey there, Mr. & Mrs. “called,” silver or tin, let’s “GIT-R-DONE!

Thank YOU ABBA PAPA for YOUR entire Holy WORD!

YHVH IS adding HIS blessing to the SHAMA of HIS entire Holy Bible. Aw-mane’

5 STAR INTEL


(INTEL as CIA = Central INTELligence Agency)

November 22, 2021

First Samuel 23 & 24 Matthew 9

Let’s actually READ The WORD of GOD and HEAR HIS still small VOICE. It is extremely easy for some of us to slander our current President, as well as his administration; and, our slander often seems justified — BUT! — let’s listen to ABBA FATHER. What is HE saying — to you and to me??

The ancestor of our MESSIAH, King David, is a man after GOD’s OWN HEART, according to:

Acts 13:22 And when HE YHVH had removed him King Saul, HE YHVH raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also HE YHVH gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after MINE YHVH’s own heart, which shall fulfil all MY YHVH’s will.

Precisely as foretold by our Prophet Samuel:

1 Samuel 13:13-14 And Samuel said to Saul, Thou hast done foolishly: thou hast not kept the Commandment of the LORD YHVH thy God ELohim, which HE commanded thee: for now would the LORD YHVH have established thy kingdom upon Israel for ever. But now thy kingdom shall not continue: the LORD YHVH hath sought HIM a man after HIS own heart [guess who — DAVID!], and the LORD YHVH hath commanded him [David] to be captain over HIS YHVH’s people, because thou [king Saul] hast not kept that which the LORD YHVH Commanded thee.

Enough prelude. We know that The LORD YHVH anointed Saul, son of Kish, to be King. We also know that The LORD YHVH anointed David to be Saul’s successor. We hear the echo in the New Testament when YESHUA Jesus was anointed The HIGH PRIEST on the Mt of Transfiguration; but, only to take OFFICE after the last Old Testament HIGH PRIEST, John the Baptist, was beheaded. YESHUA Jesus never jumped the proverbial gun to usurp John’s authority until the appointed time. I called this is an echo because David, the man after GOD’s own heart, is doing the same thing!

How many times did King Saul hurl his SPEAR at David? At least TWICE! How many times did King Saul take THOUSANDS of VALIANT SOLDIERS in pursuit of David, to KILL David??? And last, but not least, how many times did David attempt to kill King Saul? NEVER! As a matter of fact — here is the PRIME example:

King Saul, with his HUGE Army, following the INTEL of his spies, is in hot pursuit of David and David’s A-Team, which is small-in-number. David and his men are hiding in a cave. King Saul decides to escape the heat of the day and enters THAT VERY CAVE to take a nap, in the cool air of that cave; and, here’s the DRAMA:

1 Samuel 24:2 Then Saul took three thousand chosen men out of all Israel, and went to seek David and his men upon the rocks of the wild goats.

1Sa 24:3 And he came to the sheepcotes by the way, where was a cave; and Saul went in to cover his feet [see Ruth 3:7 for the covering of the feet meaning: to snooze :o))]: and David and his men remained [hidden, deep] in the sides of the cave.

1Sa 24:4 And the men of David said unto him, Behold the day of which the LORD YHVH said unto thee, Behold, I will deliver thine enemy [singular, namely SAUL!] into thine hand, that thou mayest do to him as it shall seem good unto thee [even to KILL Saul!]. Then David arose, and cut off the skirt of Saul's robe privily.

1Sa 24:5 And it came to pass afterward, that David's heart smote him [David had great remorse for dishonoring The LORD’s YHVH’s anointed!], because he had cut off Saul's skirt. [What’s this skirt business all about? this is HUGE! Let’s INVESTIGATE:]

This “SKIRT” is not something feminine that wayward men chase. NO! “SKIRT” is equivalent to the 5 STARS on Military GENERAL “Ike” Eisenhower’s lapels!!!!! “LAPELS? What meaneth LAPELS?

Lapels are the folded flaps of cloth on the front of a jacket or coat and are most commonly found on formal clothing and suit jackets. Usually they are formed by folding over the front edges of the jacket or coat and sewing them to the collar, an extra piece of fabric around the back of the neck. Wikipedia

To be more BIBLICALLY precise, let’s lOOk at the Strong’s definition:

H3671 skirt

כּנף

kânâph

kaw-nawf'

From H3670; an edge or extremity; specifically (of a bird or army) a wing, (of a garment or bed clothing) a flap, (of the earth) a quarter, …

King Saul did not make this stuff up, about his “formal clothing.” NO! As “Ike” adorned his 5 STARS, “Ike” was reminded of WHO gave him the AUTHORITY to wear the 5 STARS and to whom “Ike” was to be LOYAL!! King Saul SHOULD have been doing the same thing when King Saul adorned his “skirt, dare I say 5 STARS?” as The LORD YHVH Commanded HIS anointed in:

Numbers 15:38 Speak unto the children of Israel [and us “mixed multitude” who are “graffed in among themper Romans 11], and bid them that they make them fringes* in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue:

Numbers 15:39 And it shall be unto you for a fringe*, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the Commandments of the LORD YHVH, and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring:

Numbers 15:40 That ye may remember, and do all MY YHVH’s Commandments, and be holy unto your God. [Contrary to New Age churchianity teachings, this did NOT go away! see: 1 Pete 1:16 Because it is written [where? RIGHT HERE in Numbers 15:40! for Pete’s sake!], Be ye holy; for I am holy.]

*H6734 fringes

ציצת

tsı̂ytsith

tsee-tseeth'

Feminine of H6731; a floral or wing like projection, that is, a fore lock of hair, a tassel: - fringe, lock.

Who, pray tell, put a stop to the wearing of tzitzit? could it be the remnant of King Saul’s priesthood who KILLED The LORD’s YHVH’s PRIESTHOOD as recorded in:

1 Samuel 22:18 And the king Saul said to Doeg, Turn thou, and fall upon the priests. And Doeg the Edomite [we should know who the Edomites are and who their “daughters” are (as spoken of in Revelation 17:5) THIS is PARAMOUNT! Because they have)] turned, and he fell upon the priests [of YHVH], and slew on that day fourscore and five persons that did wear a linen ephod [and the tzitzits? I tend to think so].

1 Samuel 22:19 And Nob, the city of the priests, smote he with the edge of the sword, both men and women, children and sucklings, and oxen, and asses, and sheep, with the edge of the sword.

1 Samuel 22:20 And one of the sons of Ahimelech the son of Ahitub, named Abiathar, escaped, and fled after David. [always a “remnant” of whom I yearn to be one, in spite of New Age MEGA churchianity :o))]

Our MESSIAH YESHUA Jesus is FAR MORE than a 5 STAR General!!!!! And please keep in mind that there have only been nine 5 STAR Generals in these United States:

1. Fleet Admiral William D. Leahy

2. General of the Army George Marshall

George Washington, George Dewey, and John J. Pershing were Generals of the highest degree in the United States military; but, not 5 STARS and NONE were SEVEN STARS — as IS YESHUA!!!!!!!


Revelation 1:16 And HE YESHUA had in HIS right hand SEVEN STARS: and out of HIS mouth went a sharp twoedged sword [we’re talkin’ THE MILITARY of Militaries!!!!!!!]: and HIS countenance was as the sun shineth in HIS strength.

And THIS IS our ultimate COMMANDER speaking:

Revelation 1:20 The mystery of the SEVEN STARS which thou sawest in MY right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The SEVEN STARS are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.

Does it matter to us what HE, with SEVEN STARS, is saying? “TEN-HUT!”:

(Ten-hut is an American military term that means, "Come to attention!" It was shortened from "a-ten-hut" and came into use because it is easier to say at full shout than "attention!")

And THIS IS our ultimate COMMANDER speaking:

Revelation 2:1 Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith HE that holdeth the SEVEN STARS in HIS right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;

Do NOT break ranks (the action of soldiers or police officers who) fail to remain in line. fail to maintain solidarity.)

Revelation 3:1 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith HE that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the SEVEN STARS; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest [just look in the yellow pages for the names of the churches near you :o/], and art dead. [or are they? “BROAD is the way the leadeth to DESTRUCTION!” while “narrow is The WAY, which leadeth unto LIFE, and few there be that find it.” excerpts from Matthew 7:13 & 14]

Bottom line: What is the source of our INTEL? If President Biden could be compared to King Saul, and if King David’s SON YESHUA is SOON to take the THRONE upon this EARTH, as PROMISED, maybe, just maybe, President Biden is actually anointed by The LORD YHVH and if we are actually members of the ROYAL PRIESTHOOD (of 1st Peter 2:9) — maybe, just maybe, it would behoove us to act as David did, ya think?

PRAY - WHAT MEANETH PRAY - PRAY TELL

November 26, 2021

Second Samuel 1 Matthew 13

2 Samuel 1:4 And David said unto him [the son of an Amalekite, who claimed to have killed King Saul], How went the matter? I pray thee, tell me. And he answered, That the people are fled from the battle, and many of the people also are fallen and dead; and Saul and Jonathan his son are dead also.

Years ago, while visiting with one of my late best friends, I asked him, “Are ya reading your Bible every day?” He replied, “I pray, Rog, I pray.” I grieve his passing; mainly because, he had much to say to GOD while refusing to read & heed GOD’s WORD. I’ve never know a farmer/trucker who was more meticulous in his labor: He waxed his John Deere. He drilled the seed into his fields in rows that were straighter than an arrow. His over-the-road Western Star was immaculate! At 500 thousand miles, it looked and drove like show-room — and yet — the acts of GOD screamed at him for his attention (can an atheist get insurance to cover acts of GOD? :o): The custom hay people had swathed and bailed his hay fields, which were against a Bureau of Land Management lake. He received word that they were going to raise the water level; so, he asked the custom hay folks to get the hay bales off the field. They delayed — until — one morning my friend went to the field and the bales were floating in water! The year I worked for him, the COORS rep told him that his malt barley was primo, the BEST! Soon thereafter, just before harvest, a devastating hail storm TOTALLY wiped out his crop! So-went-his-life… praying but not hearing and obeying :o/ only saying, “I pray, Rog, I pray.” WHAT MEANETH PRAY?

David said to an evil man, “I pray thee,” and I have to ask,


WHAT MEANETH PRAY?


The Strong’s lexicon defines “pray” as:

H4994 נא nâ' naw

A primitive particle of incitement ….

incite” tends to conjure thoughts of riots and such and I wonder… what meaneth “incite”? The dictionary says:

verb

1. encourage or stir up (violent or unlawful behavior).

"the offense of inciting racial hatred"

Is this what prayer is all about?! Is this what has been banned from public schools??!!

As they say, when missing the target, “an inch is as good as a mile.” One verse of the BIBLE out-of-context is a total miss of dastardly proportions! When David said:

2 Samuel 1:4 And David said unto him [the son of an Amalekite, who claimed to have killed King Saul], How went the matter? I pray thee, tell me. And he answered, That the people are fled from the battle, and many of the people also are fallen and dead; and Saul and Jonathan his son are dead also.

Reading on to verse 8, by this fellow’s own mouth, the circumstantial evidence begins to leak out, as he testifies:

2 Samuel 1:8 And he [King Saul] said unto me [this fellow talking to David said that Saul asked], Who art thou? And I answered him, I am an Amalekite.

WHOA! STOP!! Amalekite? My hand written note in the margin of my BIBLE says, “see Genesis 14:7 & First Samuel 14!” Right outta the chute, the Amalekites are BAD NEWS! SO BAD THAT this punk thinks he is going to get a medal of HONOR for killing GOD’S ANOINTED!! Bottom line:

2 Samuel 1:14 And David said unto him, How wast thou not afraid to stretch forth thine hand to destroy the LORD'S anointed?

2 Samuel 1:15 And David called one of the young men, and said, Go near, and fall upon him. And he smote him that he died.

WHO, pray tell, told us that the NEW Testament is a totally different theology? Apostle Paul tells us that the OLD Testament is our “schoolmaster” for bringing us UNTO YESHUA! (Galatians 3:24 & 25) RUH-ROH — here we go again, MISSING the TARGET! Galatians 3:25 says:

Galatians 3:25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.

Getta grip: when we graduate from High School, we are no longer under a schoolmaster; so, does that mean 2 + 2 is something different than 4? Being graduates, we are expected to KNOW! And, after that faith is come, we know how to add correctly!

Recently, a precious Brother in Yeshua E-mailed me and asked, “Is faith a verb or a noun?” In New Age Churchianity, it is a noun which TOTALLY does away with ACTion!! WWJD? That old jingle is all about what Jesus would DO (VERB!) because of HIS faith (ACTion!) in the FATHER’s PROMISES. Turning the pages of my Bible, from David executing (VERB) that demonic Amalekite to Jesus speaking (VERB) to you and to me — HE is saying:

Matthew 13:9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. [SHAMA! a VERB x 2! If folks can’t add correctly, it’s no wonder why this multiplication is over their head :o/ ]

Is HE YESHUA just makin’ this stuff up? NO! HE, YESHUA, is referring us to:

Ezekiel 33:31-33 And they come unto THEE [YESHUA] as the people cometh, and they sit before THEE [YESHUA] as MY [YHVH’s] people, and they hear THY [YESHUA’s] words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness. And, lo, THOU [YESHUA] art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear THY words, but they do them not. And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come, [and it has!]) then [even NOW] shall they know that a Prophet hath been among them. [see Deuteronomy 18:15 really! Let us read Deuteronomy 18:15 why? BECAUSE our Prophet Isaiah IS TELLING US, about the WHOLE PACKAGE: “Isaiah 46:10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, MY counsel shall stand, and I will do all MY pleasure:]

For the IN-CONTEXT verbs, go back to Ezekiel 33 verse 25 and begin reading for The TRUTH, The Whole TRUTH and nothing but The TRUTH!!! THIS IS what Jesus “” is talkin’ about!

OK, so like, Reading on:

Matthew 13:13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

Matthew 13:14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias [Isaiah, specifically Isaiah 6:9-10*], which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:

Matthew 13:15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

*Isaiah 6:9-10 And HE said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.

Matthew 13:22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth The WORD [made flesh per John 1:14]; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke The WORD, and he becometh unfruitful. [my marginal note says see Psalm 49:6-10]

Psalm 49:6-10 They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches; None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him: (For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth for ever:) That he should still live for ever, and not see corruption. For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others.

Matthew 13:23 But he [Isaac? see Genesis 26:12] that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth The WORD, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

Genesis 26:12 Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the LORD blessed him.

Matthew 13:33 Another parable spake HE unto them; The kingdom of Heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened. [3 measures of meal? see Genesis 18:6]

Genesis 18:6 And Abraham hastened into the tent unto Sarah, and said, Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes [H5692 עגּה oog-gaw' From H5746; an ashcake (as round): - cake (upon the hearth).] upon the hearth.

FYI: Ash Cake


Ash-cake

Ash-Cake (עֻגָה, ugah', or עֻגָּה, uggah', " cake," "cake baked on the hearth," Ge 18:6; Ge 19:3; 1Ki 17:13; Eze 4:12, etc.; Sept. ἐγκρυφία), a thin round pancake baked over hot sand or a slab of stone by means of ashes or coals put over them, or between two layers of hot embers of the dung of cows or camels (see Schubert, iii, 28; Arvieux, iii, 227). Such are still relished in the East (by the Arabs of the desert) as a tolerably delicious dish (see Thevenot, ii, 12, p. 235; Schweigger, p. 283; Niebuhr, Beschr. p. 52). SEE CAKE. Such cake is made especially when there is not much time for baking. ….


Leaven” usually refers to sin. Between Genesis 18:6 and Matthew 13:33, the righteous hospitality of Abraham & Sarah seems to have been leavened; hence, our MESSIAH’s parable and HE continues:

Matthew 13:35 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open MY mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world [even from GENESIS!!!].

And:

Matthew 13:52 Then said HE unto them [and to you and to me, if only we will SHAMA = hear and obey], Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.

Why do so many New Age religions discard the old treasure? For this very reason, this chapter concludes:

Matthew 13:58 And HE did not many mighty works there [as HERE & NOW!] because of their [our] unbelief.

The words of the late Dr. Chuck Missler are ringing in mine ears:

“The NEW Testament is in the OLD Testament concealed &

The OLD Testament is in the NEW Testament revealed.

As MaraDale makes matzah during the Passover MOADIM (H4150 appointed times referred to as “seasons” in Genesis 1:14), her matzah is similar to the “ashcakes” made by Sarah and the flavor is yummy; and I wonder, how many “ashcakes” are in an Easter basket?? ZIP, NADA, NONE. Why? PRAY TELL!

Bible Teachings

 
  1. Pauline Paradox Part 1: Is the Majority Ever Wrong? (Is it possible for centuries of Bible teachers and scholars to have missed something vitally important in Paul's teachings? Could it be that Paul's writings actually support the Torah? Is the majority ever wrong?)

  2. Pauline Paradox Part 2: The Paul You Never Knew (Paul is often misunderstood, even Peter said that about him. But if we take the time to get to know Paul, he doesn't have to be. Join us in part 2 of the Pauline Paradox Series where see Paul evolve from a persecutor of Messiah's followers, to one of his greatest Law abiding advocates. Now is the time to learn the real Paul, the Paul you never knew.)

  3. Pauline Paradox Part 3: Why is Paul So Difficult to Understand? (The common position of mainstream theology utilizes snippets from Paul's writings to prove that God changed His law. Others teach that Paul is a false apostle and teaches against the Law of God. However, Peter's warning tells us how twisting Paul's letters promotes a lawless doctrine. Here are 6 reasons Paul is difficult to understand.)

  4. Pauline Paradox Part 4: Which Law Paul? (Paul said that we are not "under the law"...but Paul makes mention of seven laws! Out of those seven laws, there is ONLY ONE we are no longer under. Which ONE law are we no longer under? Are we no longer under the law of God? A choice between context and doctrinal tradition is about to be placed before you...as we continue to "test everything" and ask "Which Law Paul?")

  5. Pauline Paradox Part 5: Romans (There are many verses in Romans used to suggest God’s law has changed or been abolished. Is this true, or have we misunderstood Paul?)

  6. Pauline Paradox Part 5: Galatians (Galatians is the Holy Grail of support supposedly teaching against obeying the Law of God. Let’s read it together, from start to finish, and see if popular opinion holds up. It is time to Test Everything. Because of the length of this teaching, we have provided recommended stopping points so you can easily pick up where you left off.

  7. Pauline Paradox Part 5: Corinthians (Was Paul a people pleaser, trying to be all things to all people, and that is his reason for following and teaching and practicing Torah? That is what some teach to try to explain away the instances in which Paul clearly taught and followed the Law of God, and is that different than the Law of Christ? Is the law of God a ministry of death? Let’s test these things to Scripture.)

  8. Pauline Paradox Part 5: Ephesians (Ephesians 2 seems to say that the Law of God was abolished through our Messiah....or does it?)

  9. Defeating The Giant Of Fear: Lessons From David (I once read an article in the Huffington Post that said 85 percent of the things we’re afraid of never happen. And of the 15 percent that happens, we often discover we can handle it better than we thought we could, or we learn something from the experience. Still, many of us live with fears.)

 

The Tabernacle

Introduction

Yochanan (John) 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and tabernacled among us (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father), full of grace and truth.

Ever since I have "known the Lord" I have also known that there were false religions and pseudo-Christian organizations. I was taught that Yochanan (John) 1:14 was the Achilles heel for all the so-called cults. It was one of the first scriptures I memorized, and it was always the silver bullet on my ecclesiastical ammo belt. It was the proof that Yeshua‘ was YHVH, and YHVH put it there to issue the mortal wound to all religions that stood against the divinity of the Messiah. Nearly 30 years later I still stand firm that Yeshua‘ the Messiah is YHVH in the flesh, but Yochanan 1:14 is far more than just apologetic ammo. I have taught on the subject of the tabernacle of Shemot (Exodus) 25 for many years now, but never with the view that I have experienced since breaking away from traditional, modern Christian teaching. It has taken me a long time to wake up and realize that the foundation of faith in the Messiah is found in the foundation. It is found in the former things. It is found in the beginning. It is in Torah. Actually, it was recent discoveries in DNA research that has been the most profound influence for me. This we will discuss later. For now, we are going to go through the tabernacle step by step the way YHVH designed it. We will discuss all the articles and furniture, and how they are a beautiful picture of not only the Messiah, but ourselves.


The very first thing we must define is how YHVH, according to the Scriptures, speaks to man. The Scriptures reveal to us that there are many ways in which the Creator reveals His will and intellect to us. We must first grasp the fact that what we read is from the intellect of YHVH and not man. If there is information in the Scriptures that is chukim, or hard to understand, then it is due to the ineptness of the student and not the teacher. There are many instructions that are straightforward and to the point, such as the Ten Commandments. "Thou shalt not murder" is in your face. There are some concepts taught in parables. Some instructions are given in a contrast style or a doublet style such as the Proverbs. We have discussed in the past about the scriptural teaching tools of p'shat, remez, drash, and sod.

In Numbers we are told:

Bemidebar (Numbers) 12:6-8 And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I YHVH will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream. My servant Moshe [Moses], is not so, who is faithful in all mine house. With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even plainly, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of YHVH shall he behold.

So you see there are many ways in which the teacher teaches. In Hoshea YHVH reveals similar teaching methods.

Hoshea (Hosea) 12:10 I have spoken by the prophets, and I have multiplied visions, and used similitudes, by the ministry of the prophets.

YHVH uses similitudes. We get the word similitude from the word similar. The Hebrew word used here is damah. This word should ring a bell (idiom!). This word is used primarily to denote the idea of likeness or like unto. For example, in Isaiah 14:14 , in speaking of the King of Tyre (who I believe is a clear remez of hasatan) it says:

Yesha’yahu (Isaiah) 14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.

Here, the word damah is used to express the irrational, unlikely desires of this king. In the Psalms, damah is used to express a more positive kind of comparison:

Mizemor (Psalm) 89:6 For who in the heavens can be compared to YHVH? Who among the sons of the mighty can be likened to YHVH?

Good question! The word damah is only translated in Hoshea 12 as similitude. The word used most often to express a likeness, picture, or type is the word t'munah. This is the word YHVH uses in Exodus:

Shemot (Exodus) 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven ...

The word t'munah is from the word miyn. This word is translated as like kind or after it's kind in Bere’shiyt (Genesis) chapter one. Well, back to our word damah. Remember when I said that this word should ring a bell? Well, damah is one of the cognates of the word for ground or earth and is also translated as ADAM! So what does this mean? Well, it means a lot, but it should be the subject of another time. To give you something to chew on, go to Bere’shiyt 1:26, and see the tandem-like arrangement of the word for man (adam) and the phrase after our likeness.


In this study I will show you, through the tabernacle similitude, a wonderful picture of the Messiah, of the kehillot (church), and of the human body and nature. The tabernacle is a picture of something much greater, but we must not fall into traditional, modern theological trappings. By this I mean the allegorizing and spiritualizing of the older Scriptures. I am going to show you designed types and pictures, but we must not forget that this was a real place in real time with real meaning and purpose for real people. We must not fall into the trap of thinking that physical things were for Israel and the spiritual things are for the church. Let's look at some references to the tabernacle in the New Testament. Ivrim (Hebrews) 8:5 and 9:1-24 both make clear statements that the tabernacle in the wilderness was a figure or picture of the Messiah, and of a greater and more perfect tabernacle. Sha’ul (Paul) certainly believed that there was something to be learned about this greater tabernacle from the first tabernacle. When we study the first tabernacle, we learn to express the purpose of a greater tabernacle. But it is just as important that when we understand the function and intention of the greater tabernacle, that we can gain more insight into the first tabernacle. Did you understand that? This kind of reciprocal relationship is also seen in the bond between the Old and New Testaments. One cannot be fully understood or functional without the other. I have known this to be true for a long time, but could never grasp the vastness of this truth. I finally saw it by using the very concept I had been teaching for years. In trying to explain the truth of the new birth to Nicodemus in Yochanan 3:12, Yeshua‘ said, "If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you heavenly things?". Heavenly things are understood by the earthly things. I had been told all my "Christian" life that my body was the temple (a permanent structure originally patterned after the tabernacle) of the Holy Spirit. Wow! I thought. Pretty neat (that's a word we used in the sixties). So what do I do with that piece of information? I did what most faithful congregants do. Nothing. I was fed a heavenly, spiritual concept, but had no idea what to do with it. Why? Because I did not know anything about the earthly structure. I knew nothing of a tabernacle or temple, other than it was a "Jewish" thing from the fuzzy, irrelevant, obsolete past.


It is only recently that this closed loop relationship between the Old and New Testaments and the first and greater tabernacle began to come into better focus. I found it through recent studies of DNA. That's right! DNA. So-called science, for decades, has known that matter, particularly humans, are made up of cells. Our modern science textbooks still teach our children that matter began as "simple cells" and evolved into more complex cellular structures. With the advent of microbiology, we now know that there is no such thing as a simple cell. Scientist Michael Denton puts it this way:

Although the tiniest bacterial cells are incredibly small, each is in effect a veritable micro-miniaturized factory containing thousands of exquisitely designed pieces of intricate molecular machinery, made up of 100,000,000,000 atoms, far more complicated than any machine built by man and absolutely without parallel in the nonliving world.

This simple cell turns out to be a miniaturized city of unparalleled complexity and adaptive design, including automated assembly plants and processing units featuring robot machines (protein molecules with as many as 3,000 atoms each in three-dimensional configurations) manufacturing hundreds of thousands of specific types of products. This is only what science has discovered so far. Is this all by chance? All without a designer? True scientists have known this for decades. Science until recently has been able to identify and model the zillions of sequences of coding required in the cell to have life, but were unable to explain where the information comes from to perfectly line up these sequences. Enter DNA. DNA was discovered to be the source or blueprint of this extremely complicated process. Proteins could not be manufactured or functional without the DNA source providing the defining and guiding information. But lately, it has also been discovered that the DNA or source of creative information cannot fully function without the protein molecule. WHAT! The DNA source of information to form the protein cannot fully function without the very thing it's information gives life to? In others words, these two entities are a closed loop system. Simply put, they need each other. Without the information contained in the DNA science sees only the results found in the protein, and cannot explain what it really means. Without this information it is impossible to know what to do with what it produces. Wow again, I thought. This microscopic earthly picture describes the very relationship that exists between the two Testaments. Without the information source of Torah (DNA) we cannot define the words of the New Testament, and once we have defined the New Testament, we can now go back and fully understand the Old. Once a protein has been built from the information stored in the DNA, the protein result provides information needed to understand the DNA. As a sidebar, I began to wonder. YHVH is the information source for His human creation. Does He need us? Can He be fully understood outside of His creation? Do we need each other? I cannot answer that.


I am proposing that the Greater Tabernacle, the more perfect tabernacle, cannot be understood outside the first tabernacle. Once we grasp the fullness of the first tabernacle, then we will be able to properly fulfill the purpose of the greater tabernacle. Armed with that information, we can more fully appreciate the first tabernacle. Both tabernacles need each other.

Ephesians 2:19-22 Now, therefore, ye are no more strangers and sojourners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God; and are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Yeshua‘ the Messiah himself being the chief corner stone, in whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord; in whom ye also are built together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

Shalom Alecheim! [Peace be upon you!]

10 Lost Tribes, Fullness of the Gentiles, and the Second Coming of Jesus


November 27, 2021


How are the 10 Lost Tribes of Israel and the Fullness of the Gentiles related to the Second Coming of Jesus? The Apostle Paul tells us after something known as the Fullness of the Gentiles, the Messiah will come to save Israel. That is pretty important, it is the key to the return of Jesus, but what does the phrase mean? Although there are many theories, the phrase comes from the Old Testament and the Book of Genesis. Watch this Nelson Walters video to learn the hidden truth of this phrase.

Occult 101: the SIMPLE OCCULT documentary


July 6, 2020


In the age of "conspiracy" allegations from seemingly every direction; I thought it best to return to the basics ~ an understanding of the origin of occult in all its forms: from aliens, to ufo cults, to whatever it is that happens at secret occult black magic parties.


Short Summary of OCCULT 101:


The occult has been an ever present part of our world beginning in the Garden of Eden with the serpent. The occult boasts "secret knowledge" just as the serpent (nachash) claimed Adam and Eve would gain "secret knowledge" by eating from the tree at the occult serpent's direction. The very meaning of the word "occult" can actually be broken down into three (3) distinct parts:


1. characteristic of magical, mystical, or supernatural phenomena, or influences -- the occult.

2. beyond ordinary human understanding -- in a shifted occult sense.

3. secret or esoteric -- again needing to be in an occult sense


In general, the occult is any act of pure self-will, or manipulation of others, or the environment to one's pure self-will. It is the opposite of God's will. In fact, the "occult" whether it call its self a ufo cult, alien cult, Luciferian, Satanist... or the list goes on.... The occult in all its arrays can be viewed like a leech that suctions with fangs off of anywhere it goes. It does not build or provide, but deceives in the effort to suction from a host.


Any government or system or group that ONLY suctions off its people, and uses mind control on them (generally for the achievement of such), is a leech -- and occult.


Additionally, Aiwass is the name of the alien occult looking creature on the cover of this occult documentary.


Aiwass is the name of the alien being given to a voice that English occultist Aleister Crowley claimed to have heard on April 8, 9, and 10 in 1904. Crowley claimed that this voice, which he considered originated with a non-corporeal intelligence, dictated The Book of the Law (or Liber Legis) to him.

Who wrote the book of Hebrews?


March 9, 2021


The writer of the New Testament book of Hebrews does not identify himself. Bible scholars have debated for centuries over the identity of the writer of Hebrews. There are clues in the writing as to who the writer was. We believe that the question is settled through evidence that verifies the original Greek text of the New Testament.

 

Genesis, Exodus and the New Testament


Feb. 14, 2021


The first two books of the Bible, Genesis and Exodus, are foundational. They teach vital lessons for everyone who wants to take God seriously. The New Testament shows that righteousness is by faith ... faith in Jesus Christ. There is a powerful connection between Genesis, Exodus and the New Testament. The books are linked ... supernaturally. And there are important lessons for the modern-day church highlighted in the words and divisions of these books.

Do Not Learn The Ways of The Nations


March 30, 2018


Elohim has specifically forbidden worshipping HIM using the same customs, traditions, practices, and symbols as the pagan nations. However, religion today is loaded with pagan ways. Those who are in the mixture have difficulty seeing it. This video exposes the mixture and encourages believer to walk in a pure form of worship as defined by Torah!

 

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)


Genesis בְּרֵאשִׁית (Bereishis = Beh-rey-sheet)

Meaning = “in beginning

Pronounced Mikeitz (מִקֵּץ‎) it means "at the end," as it was the end of two full years, from the time the butler and baker were released from prison (on Rosh Hashana) till Pharoah dreamed and the wine bearer remembered his promise to Yosef (Joseph).

Wealthy elites openly campaign to use the COVID-19 pandemic to justify a fundamental transformation of our world. This is the Great Reset initiative promoted by the World Economic Forum, which they tell us would create a utopia in which most of us will own nothing and be happy. Whether they truly believe that or just say they do to sell you and me on the idea is an open question.)

It’s my belief that the entity known to us as the Roman god Saturn or his Greek equivalent Kronos has gone by many names over the centuries. We can trace his origins much farther in history, however, than the classical era—farther even than Greece’s Archaic period, which began around the time that Isaiah was called to prophesy in the middle of the eighth century BC.)

We all knew those crowded bookshelves in the far corner of the room. They were filled with jars of frogs and snakes and other former living things that now stood preserved in some brownish-yellow liquid, made cloudy and dense by their slowly decomposing bodies.)

THE COMING GREAT DELUSION—PART 24: Conclusion


November 28, 2021


God has blessed us humans with a marvelous ability to think—to reason, to “search out a matter,” which the Bible tells us “is the glory of kings.”[i] Jesus even told us that we are to love the Lord our God with all of our hearts, souls, and minds. Yet far too many Christians settle for two out of three, happily swallowing strange ideas based on nothing more than the unsubstantiated claims of dynamic leaders.


Well, we all have a right to believe whatever we want. Just remember that some bad choices have eternal consequences.


God—YHWH, the God of the Bible—made sure that He left behind evidence for the hope we have in Jesus: eyewitness testimonies, archaeologists’ discoveries, and even the activities of demons themselves argue for the truth of the gospel.


Over the centuries, the principalities and powers Paul warned us about have played a long game, cultivating philosophies and doctrines opposed to their Creator. As human understanding of science grew, the Enemy shifted from portraying themselves as the true creators and masters of humanity to convincing the world, especially in the scientistic West, that there are no gods, only highly advanced extraterrestrials. And since, per Clarke’s Third Law, “any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic,” those so-called ETIs have become, by definition, the gods we thought we knew.
