"Family" restored- Ancient Paths

Shabbat Shalom Loved One!

Last week we discussed how discharges and sores from our bodies are to be addressed: (Lev 14:54) “This is the Torah for any infection of leprosy, and eruption, (Lev 14:55) for leprosy of a garment, and of a house, (Lev 14:56) and for a swelling, and for a scab, and for a bright spot, (Lev 14:57) to teach when it is unclean and when it is clean. This is the Torah of leprosy.” (Lev 15:1) And יהוה spoke to Mosheh and to Aharon, saying, (Lev 15:2) “Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, and say to them, ‘When any man has a discharge from his flesh, his discharge is unclean. (Lev 15:3) ‘And this is his uncleanness in regard to his discharge; whether his flesh runs with his discharge, or his flesh is stopped up by his discharge, it is his uncleanness. (Lev 15:4) ‘Any bed becomes unclean on which he who has the discharge lies, and any object on which he sits becomes unclean. (Lev 15:5) ‘And anyone who touches his bed has to wash his garments, and shall bathe in water, and be unclean until evening. (Lev 15:6) ‘And he who sits on any object on which he who has the discharge sat, has to wash his garments, and shall bathe in water, and be unclean until evening.

Even sexual behavior is addressed: Lev 15:16) ‘And when a man has an emission of semen, then he shall wash all his flesh in water, and be unclean until evening. (Lev 15:17) ‘And any garment and any leather on which there is semen, shall also be washed with water, and be unclean until evening. (Lev 15:18) ‘And when a woman lies with a man, and there is an emission of semen, they both shall bathe in water, and be unclean until evening. (Lev 15:19) ‘And when a woman has a discharge, and the discharge from her flesh is blood, she has to be in her separation for seven days. And whoever touches her is unclean until evening. (Lev 15:20) ‘And whatever she lies on during her separation is unclean. And whatever she sits on is unclean. (Lev 15:21) ‘And anyone who touches her bed has to wash his garments, and shall bathe in water, and be unclean until evening. (Lev 15:22) ‘And whoever touches any object that she sat on has to wash his garments, and shall bathe in water, and be unclean until evening. (Lev 15:23) ‘And if it is on the bed or on any object on which she sits, when he touches it, he is unclean until evening. (Lev 15:24) ‘And if any man lies with her at all, and her monthly flow is on him, he shall be unclean seven days. And any bed he lies on is unclean. (Lev 15:25) ‘And when a woman has a discharge of blood for many days, other than at the time of her monthly separation, or when she discharges beyond her usual time of monthly separation, all the days of her unclean discharge shall be as the days of her monthly separation. She is unclean. (Lev 15:26) ‘Any bed on which she lies all the days of her discharge is to her as the bed of her monthly separation. And whatever she sits on is unclean, as the uncleanness of her monthly separation. (Lev 15:27) ‘And anyone who touches them is unclean, and shall wash his garments, and shall bathe in water, and be unclean until evening.

Sometimes Loved One, the road must be repeated. That is why it is a Torah Cycle. (Comment: the cycle is likened to the ancient path we are to return to; a path is often considered “a beaten path” due to returning to it often) We must learn to seek YHWH for His love and compassion to download to us; for others in our lives. Sometimes we only understand after returning many times. We can read the Scriptures over and over and then out of nowhere it seems, YHWH reveals new Truth to us! I can remember telling Yahshua once that the job description of the angelic beings (Seraphim) flying around the Throne Room in Heaven and saying holy, holy is YHWH might get boring after a few thousand years. (Isa 6:1) In the year that Sovereign Uzziyah died, I saw יהוה sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the Hĕḵal. (Temple) (Isa 6:2) Above it stood seraphim. Each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. (Isa 6:3) And one cried to another and said, “Set-apart, set-apart, set-apart is יהוה of hosts; all the earth is filled with His esteem!” (Comment: Many versions declare holy, holy is YHWH) (Isa 6:4) And the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out, and the house was filled with smoke. (Isa 6:5) And I said, “Woe to me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips – for my eyes have seen the sovereign, יהוה of hosts.” Then our loving King dropped in my spirit that He reveals more of His glory to them. (Comment: glory according to Moses’ report was a revealing of more of His goodness and mercy) This creates an instant surge of joy and enthusiasm in these angelic beings! In like manner He reveals to us as more of Himself as we seek Him with all our hearts. Why is this so important? Obviously in fiery trials and testing’s we sometimes feel abandoned and at our end. Some even become hope-less. We must join ourselves to Him by getting in His presence and being restored- regularly! (Rom 5:1) Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with YHWH through our Master Yahshua Messiah, (Rom 5:2) through whom also we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we exult in hope of the glory of YHWH. (Rom 5:3) And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; (Rom 5:4) and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; (Rom 5:5) and hope does not disappoint, because the love of YHWH has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. (Rom 5:6) While we were still helpless, (Hopeless also?) at the right time Messiah died for the ungodly. (Rom 5:7) For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. (Rom 5:8) But YHWH demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet transgressors of Torah (sinners), Messiah died for us. (Rom 5:9) Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of YHWH through Him.

Truth Seekers, we have studied and reviewed much about the coming darkness and fiery trials we can expect in the days ahead. Please do remember the Scriptures declare this Exodus will be a far greater deliverance than even Moses and Israel crossing the Red Sea. Thank you for your prayers and intercession as I met part of our family of loved ones in the Deep South and they are delightful people indeed! Don’t be disheartened- you were created by our Heavenly Father to live in these times and seasons! Be encouraged- He is well able to deliver you and your loved ones- worship Him who made Heaven and Earth! (Practically, yes, it may be a good idea to store some dry beans, whole grains, water, water purifiers, seeds, even potassium iodide in the event of nuclear terrorism, etc.) A more remote place to retreat to with like minded believers is ideal.

Once again we need to remind ourselves why you and I and they are Family and as such you (we) are “Loved Ones”! I consider all “Truth Seekers” family and therefore loved ones. Once again, here’s why; (Matthew 12:46) While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brothers stood without, desiring to speak with him.(Matthew 12:47) Then one said unto him, Behold, your mother and your brothers stand without, desiring to speak with you. (Matthew 12:48) But he answered and said unto him that told him, who is my mother? And who are my brothers?

(Matthew 12:49) And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, behold my mother and my brothers! (Matthew 12:50) For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother. Understand if we are willing to humble ourselves and submit to the will of YHWH and do the Father’s will (His TORAH! /Instructions) we are Yahshua’s (Jesus) family!

We should also realize a truth: Jeremiah prophesied that in the DAY OF AFFLICTION (Comment: Hebrew idiom for Jacob’s Trouble or also known as the Great Tribulation in the last days) we would recognize (YHWH reveals truth) and become aware of the fact that we have added to and subtracted from His FEASTS and commands! These are lies that really don’t please Him because they have pagan roots and are manmade (added and subtracted from the WORD) traditions that make the word of YHWH of none effect! (Jer 16:19) O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit.(Deu 4:2) “Do not add to the Word which I command you, and do not take away from it1, so as to guard the commands of יהוה your Elohim which I am commanding you. Footnote: 1See also 12:32, Prov. 30:6, Rev. 22:18-19.

Can we even imagine thinking we were serving YHWH our whole lives’ and hear Him tell us we inherited lies and were workers of lawlessness- that He never knew us and to depart from us; that we actually were disobedient following pagan traditions we inherited? This experience would and will cause many to go screaming in horror, weeping and gnashing of teeth, into the flames of hell! Oh Yah- Change us NOW! Reveal your TRUTH to us that we may be pleasing in your sight! Nothing is too hard for you YHWH! You are family if you are humble enough to be a truth searcher. One who desires truth and obedience to your Creator- more than you want acceptance from men and their traditions.

This group would include us who are willing to pick up our burial stake and follow Him. Why do I use burial stake? Because you and I must be willing to decrease as He increases in us. He changes not and that only leaves you and I to do the changing, Yahshua put it like this: (Matthew 16:24) Then said Yahshua to his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. (Matthew 16:25) For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. (Matthew 16:26) For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

We must be willing to humble ourselves and accept the engrafted word when we discover truth. This losing our life for Him is not just physical. As we are changed into His image we are losing our old person (ality) and gaining HIM! To the degree we are hungry for Him we will be changed- no more or less. (Matthew 5:6) Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

How do we hunger and thirst for righteousness?

(James 4:7) So then subject (submit/humble) yourselves to Elohim. Resist the devil1 and he shall flee from you. Footnote: 1Or adversary. (James 4:8) Draw near to Elohim and He shall draw near to you. Cleanse hands, sinners. And cleanse the hearts, you double-minded! (James 4:9) Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to dejection. (James 4:10) Humble yourselves in the sight of the Master, and He shall lift you up. You and I must change and receive the engrafted word of LIFE, (HUMBLE OURSELVES) turn in repentance and OBEY HIM. We can no longer say we love Him and not do what He says! (Luke 6:46) And why do you call me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?

Do we call Him Lord and Master but not obey Him? Are we of those that think His LAW (Commentary: Law was translated that but it is Torah-Instructions in Hebrew) is done away with and ALL fulfilled? Hopefully, we will rethink that position! The Spring Feasts alone are fulfilled. Passover, Feast of Unleavened Bread, First Fruits, and Shavuot were fulfilled down to the day and hour! He was the Passover Lamb, 3 days later the High Priest was still in seclusion as was prescribed of the High Priest prior to offering the thanksgiving for the first fruits of the Earth, when He said “Don’t touch me Mary, I have not yet ascended to My Father.” He is and was the High Priest! Seven sevens (weeks) later He sent the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) on Shavuot, the anniversary of giving the Torah (Law) at Mt. Sinai. He came the first time to be Messiah Ben Joseph, the suffering servant to be the Lamb of YHWH (God) sacrifice.

He is coming a second time very soon as Messiah Ben David, the Reigning King! He will rule His Kingdom from Jerusalem! Is He now ruling? NO. It is not all fulfilled! Let’s look at what Yahshua said about the Law being done away with and WHEN this will occur! (Mat 5:17) Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. (Mat 5:18) For verily I say unto you, until heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, until all be fulfilled. (Mat 5:19) Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. (The above verse is where Yahshua defines PASTOR LEAST who says the law is done away with!)

Even to us casual observers, heaven and earth have not passed! Let’s acknowledge that fact as a truth and return to Him as we study this week’s portion and allow Him to restore ALL things- especially us!

(Jer 30:3) 'For behold, days are coming,' declares YHWH, 'when I will restore the fortunes of my people Israel and Judah.' (Comment: this means you and I who are grafted into Israel by grace by faith in Yahshua and are heirs now of Abraham according to the promise) YHWH says, 'I will also bring them back to the land that I gave to their forefathers and they shall possess it.'" (Jer 30:16) 'Therefore all who devour you will be devoured; and all your adversaries, every one of them, will go into captivity; and those who plunder you will be for plunder, And all who prey upon you I will give for prey. (Jer 30:17) 'For I will restore you to health and I will heal you of your wounds,' declares YHWH, 'because they have called you an outcast, saying: "It is Zion; no one cares for her."' (Jer 30:18) "Thus says YHWH, 'Behold, I will restore the fortunes of the tents of Jacob and have compassion on his dwelling places; and the city will be rebuilt on its ruin, and the palace will stand on its rightful place. (Jer 30:19) 'From them will proceed thanksgiving and the voice of those who celebrate; and I will multiply them and they will not be diminished; I will also honor them and they will not be insignificant. (Jer 30:20) 'Their children also will be as formerly, and their congregation shall be established before me; and I will punish all their oppressors. (Jer 30:21) 'Their leader shall be one of them, and their ruler shall come forth from their midst; and I will bring him near and he shall approach me; for who would dare to risk his life to approach me?' declares YHWH. (Jer 30:22) 'You shall be my people, and I will be your Elohim.'"

Whatever we are found trusting- better have the solid foundation under it which is Moses (Torah) and the prophets. Bo, a close friend, recently reminded me of the verse below. (Pro 28:8) He who increases his possessions by interest and profit gathers it for him who shows favor to the poor. (Pro 28:9) He who turns away his ear from hearing the Torah, even his prayer is an abomination1. Footnote: 1See also 15:29, Isa. 59:1-2, John 9:31, 1 John 3:22. (Pro 28:10) He who causes the straight to go astray in an evil way, falls into his own pit; but the perfect inherit the good. (Pro 28:11) A rich man is wise in his own eyes, but the poor who has understanding searches him out.

With the foundation in mind, let’s turn our hearts and minds to this week’s Torah portion.

Here are this week’s Torah Scriptures: Achareimot “After the Death”

Leviticus 16:1-18:30; Amos 9:7-15 Ezekiel 22:1-31; Hebrews 9:11-28

There is an order (Protocol) of obedience required in approaching YHWH!

(Lev 16:1) And יהוה spoke to Mosheh after the death of the two sons of Aharon, as they drew near before יהוה, and died. (Lev 16:2) And יהוה said to Mosheh, “Speak to Aharon your brother not to come in at all times to the Set-apart Place inside the veil, before the lid of atonement which is on the ark, lest he die, because I appear in the cloud above the lid of atonement. (Lev 16:3) “With this Aharon should come into the Set-apart Place: with the blood of a young bull as a sin offering, and of a ram as a burnt offering. (Lev 16:4) “He should put on the set-apart linen long shirt, with linen trousers on his flesh, and gird himself with a linen girdle, and be dressed with the linen turban – they are set-apart garments. And he shall bathe his body in water, and shall put them on. (Lev 16:5) “And from the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl he takes two male goats as a sin offering, and one ram as a burnt offering. (Lev 16:6) “And Aharon shall bring the bull as a sin offering, which is for him, and make atonement for himself and for his house. (Lev 16:7) “And he shall take the two goats and let them stand before יהוה at the door of the Tent of Meeting. (Lev 16:8) “And Aharon shall cast lots for the two goats, one lot for יהוה and the other lot for Azazel. (Lev 16:9) “And Aharon shall bring the goat on which the lot for יהוה fell, and shall prepare it as a sin offering. (Lev 16:10) “But the goat on which the lot for Azazel fell is caused to stand alive before יהוה, to make atonement upon it, to send it into the wilderness to Azazel. (Lev 16:11) “And Aharon shall bring the bull of the sin offering, which is for himself, and make atonement for himself and for his house, and shall slaughter the bull as the sin offering which is for himself, (Lev 16:12) and shall take a fire holder filled with burning coals of fire from the altar before יהוה, with his hands filled with sweet incense beaten fine, and shall bring it inside the veil. (Lev 16:13) “And he shall put the incense on the fire before יהוה, and the cloud of incense shall cover the lid of atonement which is on the Witness, lest he die. (Lev 16:14) “And he shall take some of the blood of the bull and sprinkle it with his finger on the lid of atonement on the east side; also in front of the lid of atonement he sprinkles some of the blood with his finger seven times. (Lev 16:15) “And he shall slaughter the goat of the sin offering, which is for the people, and shall bring its blood inside the veil, and shall do with that blood as he did with the blood of the bull, and sprinkle it on the lid of atonement and in front of the lid of atonement.


(Lev 16:16) “And he shall make atonement for the Set-apart Place, because of the uncleanness of the children of Yisra’ĕl, and because of their transgressions in all their sins. And so he does for the Tent of Meeting which is dwelling with them in the midst of their uncleanness. (Lev 16:17) “And no man should be in the Tent of Meeting when he goes in to make atonement in the Set-apart Place, until he comes out. And he shall make atonement for himself, and for his household, and for all the assembly of Yisra’ĕl. (Lev 16:18) “And he shall go out to the altar that is before יהוה, and make atonement for it. And he shall take some of the blood of the bull and some of the blood of the goat, and put it on the horns of the altar all around. (Lev 16:19) “And he shall sprinkle some of the blood on it with his finger seven times, and cleanse it, and set it apart from the uncleanness of the children of Yisra’ĕl. (Lev 16:20) “And when he has finished atoning for the Set-apart Place, and the Tent of Meeting, and the altar, he shall bring the live goat. (Lev 16:21) “Then Aharon shall lay both his hands on the head of the live goat, and shall confess over it all the crookednesses of the children of Yisra’ĕl, and all their transgressions in all their sins, and shall put them on the head of the goat, and shall send it away into the wilderness by the hand of a fit man. (Lev 16:22) “And the goat shall bear on itself all their crookednesses, to a land cut off. Thus he shall send the goat away into the wilderness. (Lev 16:23) “Aharon shall then come into the Tent of Meeting, and shall take off the linen garments which he put on when he went into the Set-apart Place, and shall leave them there. (Lev 16:24) “And he shall bathe his body in water in the set-apart place, and shall put on his garments, and shall come out and prepare his burnt offering and the burnt offering of the people, and make atonement for himself and for the people, (Lev 16:25) and burn the fat of the sin offering on the altar.

Day of Atonement (Yom Kippor- Judgment Day) Afflict means- FAST and pray!

(Lev 16:26) “And he who sent away the goat to Azazel washes his garments, and shall bathe his body in water, and afterward he comes into the camp. (Lev 16:27) “And the bull for the sin offering and the goat for the sin offering, whose blood was brought in to make atonement in the Set-apart Place, is brought outside the camp. And they shall burn their skins, and their flesh, and their dung with fire. (Lev 16:28) “And he who burns them washes his garments, and shall bathe his body in water, and afterward he comes into the camp. (Lev 16:29) “And this shall be for you a law forever: In the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, you afflict your beings, and do no work, the native or the stranger who sojourns among you. (Lev 16:30) “For on that day he makes atonement for you, to cleanse you, to be clean from all your sins before יהוה. (Lev 16:31) “It is a Sabbath of rest for you, and you shall afflict your beings – a law forever. (Lev 16:32) “And the priest, who is anointed and ordained to serve as priest in his father’s place, shall make atonement, and shall put on the linen garments, the set-apart garments, (Lev 16:33) and he shall make atonement for the Most Set-apart Place, and make atonement for the Tent of Meeting and for the altar, and make atonement for the priests and for all the people of the assembly. (Lev 16:34) “And this shall be for you a law forever, to make atonement for the children of Yisra’ĕl, for all their sins, once a year.” And he did as יהוה commanded Mosheh.

(Lev 17:1) And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Lev 17:2) “Speak to Aharon, to his sons, and to all the children of Yisra’ĕl, and say to them, ‘This is the word which יהוה has commanded, saying, (Lev 17:3) “Any man from the house of Yisra’ĕl who slaughters a bull or a lamb or a goat in the camp, or who slaughters it outside the camp, (Lev 17:4) and does not bring it to the door of the Tent of Meeting, to bring an offering to יהוה before the Dwelling Place of יהוה, blood-guilt is reckoned to that man. He has shed blood, and that man shall be cut off from among his people, (Lev 17:5) in order that the children of Yisra’ĕl bring their slaughterings which they slaughter in the open field. And they shall bring them to יהוה at the door of the Tent of meeting, to the priest, and slaughter them as peace offerings to יהוה. (Lev 17:6) “And the priest shall sprinkle the blood on the altar of יהוה at the door of the Tent of Meeting, and shall burn the fat for a sweet fragrance to יהוה. (Lev 17:7) “And let them no longer slaughter their slaughterings to demons, after whom they whored. This is a law forever for them throughout their generations.” ’ (Lev 17:8) “And say to them, ‘Any man of the house of Yisra’ĕl, or of the strangers who sojourn among you, who offers a burnt offering or slaughtering, (Lev 17:9) and does not bring it to the door of the Tent of Meeting, to do it to יהוה, that man shall be cut off from among his people. (Lev 17:10) ‘And any man of the house of Yisra’ĕl, or of the strangers who sojourn among you, who eats any blood, I shall set My face against that being who eats blood, and shall cut him off from among his people. (Lev 17:11) ‘The life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your lives; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the life.’ (Lev 17:12) “Therefore I said to the children of Yisra’ĕl, ‘No being among you eats blood, nor does any stranger who sojourns among you eat blood.’ (Lev 17:13) “And any man from the children of Yisra’ĕl, or from the strangers who sojourn among you, who hunts and catches any beast or bird, which is eaten, shall pour out its blood and cover it with dust, (Lev 17:14) for it is the life of all flesh. Its blood is for its life. And I said to the children of Yisra’ĕl, ‘Do not eat the blood of any flesh, for the life of all flesh is its blood. Anyone eating it is cut off.’ (Lev 17:15) “And any being who eats a carcass or what was torn by a beast, be he a native or a stranger, he shall wash his garments and bathe in water, and shall be unclean until evening. Then he shall be clean. (Lev 17:16) “And if he does not wash or bathe his body, then he shall bear his crookedness.”

Don’t! Learn the ways of the heathens and call it worship to YHWH!

(Lev 18:1) And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Lev 18:2) “Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, and say to them, ‘I am יהוה your Elohim. (Lev 18:3) ‘Do not do as they do in the land of Mitsrayim, where you dwelt. And do not do as they do in the land of Kenaʽan, where I am bringing you, and do not walk in their laws. (Lev 18:4) ‘Do My right-rulings and guard my laws, to walk in them. I am יהוה your Elohim. (Lev 18:5) ‘And you shall guard my laws and my right-rulings, which a man does and lives by them. I am יהוה.

Keep away from incest, nakedness, and such- YHWH will judge the disobedient! No sacrificing of babies for convenience either (Abortion- Molek)

(Lev 18:6) ‘No one is to approach anyone of his own flesh to uncover his nakedness. I am יהוה. (Lev 18:7) ‘The nakedness of your father or the nakedness of your mother you do not uncover. She is your mother; you do not uncover her nakedness. (Lev 18:8) ‘The nakedness of your father’s wife you do not uncover, it is your father’s nakedness. (Lev 18:9) ‘The nakedness of your sister, the daughter of your father, or the daughter of your mother, whether born at home or elsewhere, their nakedness you do not uncover. (Lev 18:10) ‘The nakedness of your son’s daughter or your daughter’s daughter, their nakedness you do not uncover, for theirs is your own nakedness. (Lev 18:11) ‘The nakedness of your father’s wife’s daughter, brought forth by your father, she is your sister, and you do not uncover her nakedness. (Lev 18:12) ‘The nakedness of your father’s sister you do not uncover, she is your father’s flesh. (Lev 18:13) ‘The nakedness of your mother’s sister you do not uncover, for she is your mother’s flesh. (Lev 18:14) ‘The nakedness of your father’s brother you do not uncover, you do not approach his wife, she is your aunt. (Lev 18:15) ‘The nakedness of your daughter-in-law you do not uncover, she is your son’s wife, you do not uncover her nakedness. (Lev 18:16) ‘The nakedness of your brother’s wife you do not uncover, it is your brother’s nakedness. (Lev 18:17) ‘The nakedness of a woman and her daughter you do not uncover, nor do you take her son’s daughter or her daughter’s daughter, to uncover her nakedness. They are her relatives – it is wickedness. (Lev 18:18) ‘And do not take a woman as a rival to her sister, to uncover her nakedness while the other is alive. (Lev 18:19) ‘And do not approach a woman to uncover her nakedness in her monthly separation of uncleanness. (Lev 18:20) ‘And do not have intercourse with the wife of your neighbor, to defile yourself with her. (Lev 18:21) ‘And do not give any of your offspring to pass through to Moleḵ. And do not profane the Name of your Elohim. I am יהוה.

Homosexuality will be judged as perversion by YHWH’s own words!

(Lev 18:22) ‘And do not lie with a male as with a woman, it is an abomination. (Lev 18:23) ‘And do not have intercourse with any beast, to defile yourself with it. And a woman does not stand before a beast to mate with it, it is a perversion. (Lev 18:24) ‘Do not defile yourselves with all these, for by all these the nations are defiled, which I am driving out before you. (Lev 18:25) ‘Thus the land became defiled, therefore I punished it for its crookedness, and the land vomited out its inhabitants. (Lev 18:26) ‘But you, you shall guard My laws and My right-rulings, and not do any of these abominations, the native nor stranger who sojourns among you, (Lev 18:27) because the men of the land who were before you have done all these abominations, and thus the land became defiled, (Lev 18:28) ‘So let not the land vomit you out for defiling it, as it vomited out the nations that were before you. (Lev 18:29) ‘For whoever does any of these abominations, those beings who do them shall be cut off from among their people. (Lev 18:30) ‘And you shall guard My Charge, so as not to do any of these abominable practices which were done before you, so as not to defile yourselves by them. I am יהוה your Elohim.’ ”

(Amos 9:7) “Are you not like the people of Kush to Me, O children of Yisra’ĕl?” declares יהוה. “Did I not bring up Yisra’ĕl from the land of Mitsrayim, and the Philistines from Kaphtor, and Aram from Qir? (Amos 9:8) “Look, the eyes of the Master יהוה are on the sinful reign1, and I shall destroy it from the face of the earth, except that, I do not completely destroy the house of Yaʽaqoḇ,” declares יהוה. Footnote: 1Isa. 34:2, Jer. 30:11, Jer. 46:28, Dan. 2:44, Zeph. 3:8, Hag. 2:22, Lk. 4:5-6. (Amos 9:9) “For look, I am commanding, and I shall sift the house of Yisra’ĕl among all the gentiles, as one sifts1 with a sieve, yet not a grain falls to the ground. Footnote: 1Or Shake - shakes. (Amos 9:10) “All the sinners of my people are going to die by the sword, those who are saying, ‘Evil does not overtake us nor meet us.’ (Amos 9:11) “In that day I shall raise up the booth of Dawiḏ which has fallen down. And I shall repair its breaches and rise up its ruins. And I shall build it as in the days of old, (Amos 9:12) so that they possess the remnant of Eḏom1, and all the gentiles on whom My Name is called2,” declares יהוה who does this. Footnotes: 1The vowels which the Masoretes added later on, makes this read Eḏom, but it was probably a mistake. It should be Aḏam, meaning mankind. 2Acts 15:16-17. (Amos 9:13) “Look, the days are coming,” declares יהוה, “that the ploughman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him who sows seed. And the mountains shall drip new wine, and all the hills melt. (Amos 9:14) “And I shall turn back the captivity of my people Yisra’ĕl. And they shall build the waste cities and inhabit them. And they shall plant vineyards and drink wine from them, and shall make gardens and eat their fruit. (Amos 9:15) “And I shall plant them on their own soil, and not uproot them any more from their own soil I have given them,” said יהוה your Elohim!

City of blood- Country of blood (USA and others) these disobeyed the Torah and do as they please- (Since the “LAW” is done away with- NOT!)

(Eze 22:1) And the word of יהוה came to me, saying, (Eze 22:2) “And now, son of man, judge, judge the city of blood! And you shall show her all her abominations! (Eze 22:3) “And you shall say, ‘Thus said the Master יהוה, “The city sheds blood in her midst, that her time might come. And she has made idols within herself to become defiled. (Eze 22:4) “You have become guilty by the blood which you have shed, and have defiled yourself with the idols which you have made. Thus you have brought your days near, and have come to the end of your years. Therefore I shall make you a reproach to the gentiles, and a mockery to all lands. (Eze 22:5) “Those near and those far from you mock you – defiled is your name and great the confusion! (Eze 22:6) “See the leaders of Yisra’ĕl: each one has used his arm to shed blood in you. (Eze 22:7) “They have despised father and mother within you. They have oppressed the stranger in your midst. They have wronged the fatherless and the widow within you. (Eze 22:8) “You have despised that which is set-apart to me, and you have profaned my Sabbaths. (Eze 22:9) “Slanderous men have been in you to shed blood. And in you are those who eat on the mountains. They have done wickedness in your midst. (Eze 22:10) “In you they have uncovered the nakedness of a father. In you they have humbled women who are defiled during their uncleanness. (Eze 22:11) “And the one has done abomination with his neighbor’s wife. And another has wickedly defiled his daughter-in-law. And another within you has humbled his sister, his father’s daughter. (Eze 22:12) “In you they have taken a bribe to shed blood. You have taken interest and increase. You have cut off your neighbor by extortion. And you have forgotten me,” declares the Master יהוה. (Eze 22:13) “And see, I shall smite my hand because of your greedy gain which you have made, and at the bloodshed which has been in your midst. (Eze 22:14) “Would your heart stand, your hands remain strong, in the days when I deal with you? I, יהוה, have spoken, and shall do it. (Eze 22:15) “And I shall scatter you among the gentiles, and shall disperse you throughout the lands, and shall consume your filthiness out of you. (Eze 22:16) “And you shall profane yourself before the eyes of the gentiles. And you shall know that I am יהוה.” ’ ” (Eze 22:17) And the word of יהוה came to me, saying, (Eze 22:18) “Son of man, the house of Yisra’ĕl has become dross to me. All of them are bronze, and tin, and iron, and lead, in the midst of a furnace – they have become the dross of silver. (Eze 22:19) “Therefore thus said the Master יהוה, ‘Because all of you have become dross, therefore see, I am gathering you into the midst of Yerushalayim. (Eze 22:20) ‘As they gather silver, and bronze, and iron, and lead, and tin into the midst of a furnace, to blow fire on it, to melt it, so I gather you in my displeasure and in my wrath. And I shall blow and melt you. (Eze 22:21) ‘And I shall gather you and blow on you with the fire of my wrath, and you shall be melted in its midst. (Eze 22:22) ‘As silver is melted in the midst of a furnace, so are you melted in its midst. And you shall know that I, יהוה, have poured out my wrath on you.’ ” (Eze 22:23)

Pastors (priests/prophets) have done violence to His Torah- Law Instructions!

And the word of יהוה came to me, saying, (Eze 22:24) “Son of man, say to her, ‘You are a land that is not cleansed or rained upon in the day of displeasure.’ (Eze 22:25) “There is a conspiracy of her prophets in her midst, like a roaring lion tearing the prey. They have devoured life, they have taken wealth and precious matters, they have made many widows in her midst. (Eze 22:26) “Her priests have done violence to my teaching1 and they profane my set-apart matters. They have not distinguished between the set-apart and profane, nor have they made known the difference between the unclean and the clean. And they have hidden their eyes from My Sabbaths, and I am profaned in their midst. Footnote: 1Zeph. 3:4, Lk. 16:16. (Eze 22:27) “Her leaders in her midst are like wolves tearing the prey, to shed blood, to destroy lives, and to get greedy gain. (Eze 22:28) “And her prophets have coated them with whitewash, seeing a false vision, and divining a lie for them, saying, ‘Thus said the Master יהוה,’ when יהוה had not spoken. (Eze 22:29) “The people of the land have practiced oppression, and committed robbery, and have wronged the poor and needy. And they oppressed the stranger without right-ruling. (Eze 22:30) “And I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the breach before me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it – but I did not find one! (Eze 22:31) “Therefore I have poured out my displeasure on them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath. And I have put their way on their own head,” declares the Master יהוה.

Blood of Yahshua! Man dies once and then is judged, so we wait patiently for His second appearing!

(Heb 9:11) But Messiah, having become a High Priest of the coming good matters, through the greater and more perfect Tent not made with hands, that is, not of this creation, (Heb 9:12) entered into the Most Set-apart Place once for all, not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood, having obtained everlasting redemption. (Heb 9:13) For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the defiled, sets apart for the cleansing of the flesh, (Heb 9:14) how much more shall the blood of the Messiah, who through the everlasting Spirit offered Himself unblemished to Elohim, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living Elohim? (Heb 9:15) And because of this He is the Mediator of a renewed covenant, so that, death having taken place for redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, those who are called might receive the promise of the everlasting inheritance. (Heb 9:16) For where a covenant is, it is necessary for the death of the covenanted one to be established. (Heb 9:17) For a covenant over those dead is firm, since it is never valid while the covenanted one is living. (Heb 9:18) Therefore not even the first covenant was instituted without blood. (Heb 9:19) For when, according to Torah, every command had been spoken by Mosheh to all the people, he took the blood of calves and goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people, (Heb 9:20) saying, “This is the blood of the covenant which Elohim commanded you.” (Heb 9:21) And in the same way he sprinkled with blood both the Tent and all the vessels of the service. (Heb 9:22) And, according to the Torah, almost all is cleansed with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. (Heb 9:23) It was necessary, then, that the copies of the heavenly ones should be cleansed with these, but the heavenly ones themselves with better slaughter offerings than these. (Heb 9:24) For Messiah has not entered into a Set-apart Place made by hand – figures of the true – but into the heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of Elohim on our behalf, (Heb 9:25) not that He should offer Himself often, as the high priest enters into the Set-apart Place year by year with blood not his own. (Heb 9:26) If so, He would have had to suffer often, since the foundation of the world. But now He has appeared once for all at the end of the ages to put away sin by the offering of Him. (Heb 9:27) And as it awaits men to die once, and after this the judgment, (Heb 9:28) so also the Messiah, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, shall appear a second time, apart from sin, to those waiting for Him, unto deliverance.

Loved one – thanks so much for your prayers and heartfelt intercession! Praise YHWH that He hears heart rendered prayers! I give thanks for you, Loved One, you are His body who loves Him and shows this love by obeying Him (Eph 1:15) For this reason I too, having heard of your belief in the Master יהושע and your love for all the set-apart ones, Eph 1:16) do not cease giving thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers, (Eph 1:17) that the Elohim of our Master יהושע Messiah, the Father of esteem, would give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, (Eph 1:18) the eyes of your understanding1 being enlightened, so that you know what is the expectation of His calling, and what are the riches of the esteem of His inheritance in the set-apart ones, Footnote: 1Lk. 24:45. (Eph 1:19) and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who are believing, according to the working of His mighty strength, (Eph 1:20) which He wrought in the Messiah when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenlies, (Eph 1:21) far above all rule and authority and power and mastery, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. (Eph 1:22) And He put all under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all, to the assembly, (Eph 1:23) which is His body, the completeness of Him who fills all in all.

Shalom to your home,
