Shabbat Shalom Loved One! - Weekly Torah Study-- Now translations available! -Offerings and “About Us” information available

About 3 weeks ago I had determined and announced my intention to move to the Abiv schedule of the weekly Torah readings. That is to say that I wanted to acknowledge the Biblical command to start the New Year is not in agreement with the manmade one done by the orthodox Jews; who call the Feast of Trumpets the Head of the Year. Making that change would have the annual Torah Cycle end up and start over at Abiv, sometime in March or April. So after last week’s study on the Last Great Day or the 8th day of Sukkot/Tabernacles, I would start in Bemidbar- In the Wilderness. As I contemplated this change a thought overwhelmed me. Here is the thought; if we are caught up at the last Trumpet (Feast), and by Tabernacles we are all building our Sukkah (mangers) to live in and dwell with our Messiah and King on the Earth, would He start teaching in Bembidar OR would He (likely?) start to teach us in Bereshit- IN THE BEGINNING? (1Co 15:50) And this I say brothers, that flesh and blood is unable to inherit the reign of Elohim, neither does corruption inherit incorruption. (1Co 15:51) See, I speak a secret to you: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, (1Co 15:52) in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. (1Co 15:53) For this corruptible has to put on incorruption, and this mortal to put on immortality. (1Co 15:54) And when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, and then shall come to be the word that has been written, “Death is swallowed up in overcoming.” (1Co 15:55) “O Death, where is your sting? O grave, where is your overcoming?” AND (1Th 4:13) Now, brothers, we do not wish you to be ignorant concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you be sad as others who have no expectation. (1Th 4:14) For if we believe that יהושע died and rose again, so also Elohim shall bring with Him those who sleep1 in יהושע. Footnote: 1An euphemism for death, a typical Hebrew word for it. (1Th 4:15) For this we say to you by the word of the Master, that we, the living who are left over at the coming of the Master shall in no way go before those who are asleep. (1Th 4:16) Because the Master Himself shall come down from heaven with a shout, with the voice of a chief messenger (Angel), and with the trumpet of Elohim and the dead in Messiah shall rise first. (1Th 4:17) Then we, the living who are left over, shall be caught away together with them in the clouds to meet the Master in the air – and so we shall always be with the Master.

My point is simple. I would expect He will start from ground zero as though we know very little (True) and start all over In the Beginning. Obviously, I don’t know that, but my simple point is that maybe it does not matter so much- maybe even He will have mercy on us who have a heart to obey Him and for us who will offer mercy to those who disagree. Perhaps it is far more important that we walk in love toward our brothers and sisters.

(Luke 6:27)But I say to you who are hearing: Love your enemies, do good to those hating you. (Luke 6:28)Bless those cursing you, and pray for those insulting you. (Luke 6:29) “And to him, who hits you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him, who takes away your outer garment, do not withhold the inner garment either. (Luke 6:30)And give to everyone who asks of you. And from him who takes away what is yours do not ask it back. (Luke 6:31) “And as you wish men should do to you, you also do to them in the same way. (Luke 6:32) “And if you love those loving you, what favor have you? For sinners, too, love those loving them. (Luke 6:33) “And if you do good to those doing good to you, what favor have you? For even sinners do the same. (Luke 6:34)And if you lend to those from whom you expect to receive back, what favor have you? For even sinners lend to sinners to receive as much back. (Luke 6:35)Rather, love your enemies, and do well and lend, expecting none in return. And your reward shall be great, and you shall be sons of the Most High. Because He is kind to the thankless and wicked ones.1 Footnote: 1Mt. 5:45, Acts 14:16-17.

(Mat 5:43) Ye have heard that it hath been said Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy. (Mat 5:44) But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

We obey or try to obey Torah because we actually love Yahshua and He promises to not leave us as orphans: (Johnn 14:13) “And whatever you ask in my Name, that I shall do, in order that the Father might be esteemed in the Son. (Johnn 14:14)If you ask whatever in my Name, I shall do it. (Johnn 14:15) “If you love me, you shall guard my commands.1 Footnote: 1See Ex. 20:6, vv. 21&23, 1 Johnn 5:2-3, 2 Johnn v. 6. (Johnn 14:16) “And I shall ask the Father, and He shall give you another Helper, to stay with you forever – (Johnn 14:17) the Spirit of the Truth, whom the world is unable to receive, because it does not see Him or know Him. But you know Him, for He stays with you and shall be in you. (Johnn 14:18) “I shall not leave you orphans – I am coming to you. (Johnn 14:19) “Yet a little while, and the world no longer sees me, but you shall see me, because I live, and you shall live. (Johnn 14:20)In that day you shall know that I am in my Father and you in me, and I in you. (Johnn 14:21)He who possesses my commands and guards them, it is he who loves me. And he who loves me shall be loved by my Father, and I shall love him and manifest myself to him.”

Again, Yahshua states our testing and it is a condition of a changed heart- not how well we keep or miss (even destroy or abolish) the Torah- (Johnn 13:34) “A renewed command I give to you, that you love one another, as I have loved you, that you also love one another. (Johnn 13:35)By this shall all know that you are my taught ones, if you have love for one another.”

Noting again unless we be changed as little children and receive His engrafted word and thereby His very nature of loving others is loving Him (even the least) and loving our neighbors as ourselves; we will in no way inherit the Kingdom just by our perfect understanding of Torah. It obviously is based on our DOING as even demons are believers! Faith without corresponding action is dead- like the body without the spirit man inside still- is dead.

(James 2:14) My brothers, what use is it for anyone to say he has belief (faith) but does not have works? This belief (faith) is unable to save him. (James 2:15) And if a brother or sister is naked and in need of daily food, (James 2:16) but one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,” but you do not give them the bodily needs, what use is it? (James 2:17) So also belief (faith), if it does not have works, is in itself dead. (James 2:18) But someone might say, “You have belief (faith), and I have works.” Show me your belief (faith) without your works, and I shall show you my belief (faith) by my works. (James 2:19) You believe that Elohim is one. You do well. The demons also believe – and shudder! (James 2:20) But do you wish to know, O foolish man, that the belief (faith) without the works (action) is dead? (James 2:21) Was not Aḇraham our father declared right by works when he offered Yitsḥaq his son on the altar? (James 2:22) Do you see that the belief (faith) was working with his works, and by the works the belief (faith) was perfected? (James 2:23) And the Scripture was filled which says, “Aḇraham believed Elohim, and it was reckoned to him for righteousness.” And he was called, “Elohim’s friend.” (James 2:24) You see, then, that a man is declared right by works, and not by belief alone. (James 2:25) In the same way, was not Raḥaḇ the whore also declared right by works when she received the messengers and sent them out another way? (James 2:26) For as the body without the spirit is dead, so also the belief (faith) is dead without the works (actions).

Finally, as we approach this week’s Torah Study- let’s not deceive ourselves!

(James 1:21) Therefore put away all filthiness and overflow of evil, and receive with meekness the implanted Word, 1 which is able to save your lives. Footnote: 1See Mt. 13:4-23. (James 1:22) And become doers of the Word, and not hearers only, 1 deceiving yourselves. Footnote: 1See Mt. 7:24-27, Lk. 6:46-49, Lk. 8:21, Rom. 2:13, Heb. 4:11, Rev. 22:14. (James 1:23) If anyone is a hearer of the Word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror, (James 1:24) for he looks at himself, and goes away, and immediately forgets what he was like. (James 1:25) But he that looked into the perfect Torah, that of freedom, 1 and continues in it, not becoming a hearer that forgets, but a doer of work, this one shall be blessed in his doing of the Torah. Footnote: 1See 2:12. (James 1:26) If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is worthless. (James 1:27) Clean and undefiled religion before the Elohim and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction and to keep yourself unstained (unpolluted) by the world. Guard your eyes and ears regarding the filth that may be sent through television, coarse jesting of friends, and songs on the radio. Hasatan is seeking whom he may devour so it is permissive- we allow it by allowing the pollution of this world to come.

Now, with His idea of religion fresh on our minds, let’s turn to this week’s Torah Study!

Here are this week’s Torah Scriptures: Bereshit (pronounced bear-sheet) In the Beginning

Genesis 1:1-6:8; Isaiah 42:5-43:11; John 1:1-17

(Gen 1:1) In the beginning Elohim created the heavens and the earth. (Gen 1:2) And the earth came to be1 formless and empty, and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of Elohim was moving on the face of the waters. Footnote: 1Or the earth became. (Gen 1:3) And Elohim said, “Let light come to be,” and light came to be. (Gen 1:4) And Elohim saw the light, that it was good. And Elohim separated the light from the darkness. (Gen 1:5) And Elohim called the light ‘day’ and the darkness He called ‘night.’ And there came to be evening and there came to be morning, the first day. (Gen 1:6) And Elohim said, “Let an expanse come to be in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” (Gen 1:7) And Elohim made the expanse, and separated the waters which were under the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse. And it came to be so. (Gen 1:8) And Elohim called the expanse ‘heavens.’ And there came to be evening and there came to be morning, the second day. (Gen 1:9) And Elohim said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear.” And it came to be so. (Gen 1:10) And Elohim called the dry land ‘earth,’ and the collection of the waters He called ‘seas.’ And Elohim saw that it was good. (Gen 1:11) And Elohim said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the plant that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth.” And it came to be so. (Gen 1:12) And the earth brought forth grass, the plant that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And Elohim saw that it was good. (Gen 1:13) And there came to be evening and there came to be morning, the third day.

Here is YHWH’s calendar! Neither Pope Gregory’s Gregorian calendar nor Hillel’s Jewish manmade calendar! Remember He is restoring all things- especially His times and seasons-

(Gen 1:14) And Elohim said, “Let lights come to be in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and appointed times, and for days and years, (Gen 1:15) and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth.” And it came to be so. (Gen 1:16) And Elohim made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night, and the stars. (Gen 1:17) And Elohim set them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, (Gen 1:18) and to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And Elohim saw that it was good.

Note again how YHWH starts His day! (Evening starts the day)

(Gen 1:19) And there came to be evening and there came to be morning, the fourth day. (Gen 1:20) And Elohim said, “Let the waters teem with shoals of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth on the face of the expanse of the heavens.” (Gen 1:21) And Elohim created great sea creatures and every living creature that moves, with which the waters teemed, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And Elohim saw that it was good. (Gen 1:22) And Elohim blessed them, saying, “Bear fruit and increase, and fill the waters in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth.” (Gen 1:23) And there came to be evening and there came to be morning, the fifth day. (Gen 1:24) And Elohim said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: livestock and creeping creatures and beasts of the earth, according to its kind.” And it came to be so. (Gen 1:25) And Elohim made the beast of the earth according to its kind, livestock according to its kind, and all that creep on the earth according to its kind. And Elohim saw that it was good.

Here’s the image mankind is made in! (And He gave us authority over all creeps!)

(Gen 1:26) And Elohim said, “Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over the livestock, and over all the earth and over all the creeping creatures that creep on the earth.” (Gen 1:27) And Elohim created the man in His image, in the image of Elohim He created him – male and female He created them. (Gen 1:28) And Elohim blessed them, and Elohim said to them, “Bear fruit and increase, and fill the earth and subdue it, and rule over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over all creatures moving on the earth.”

He even gave us food!

(Gen 1:29) And Elohim said, “See, I have given you every plant that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed, to you it is for food. (Gen 1:30) “And to every beast of the earth, and to every bird of the heavens, and to every creeping creature on the earth, in which there is life, every green plant is for food.” And it came to be so. (Gen 1:31) And Elohim saw all that He had made, and see, it was very good. And there came to be evening and there came to be morning, the sixth day. (Gen 2:1) Thus the heavens and the earth were completed, and their entire array. (Gen 2:2) And on the seventh day Elohim completed His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made.

Sabbath! Yay for our creator! What a Mighty El we know!

(Gen 2:3) And Elohim blessed the seventh day and set it apart, because on it He rested from all His work which Elohim in creating had made. (Gen 2:4) These are the births of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that יהוה Elohim made earth and heavens. (Gen 2:5) Now no shrub of the field was yet on the earth, and no plant of the field had yet sprung up, for יהוה Elohim had not sent rain on the earth, and there was no man to till the ground, (Gen 2:6) but a mist went up from the earth and watered the entire surface of the ground. (Gen 2:7) And יהוה Elohim formed the man out of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils breath of life. And the man became a living being. (Gen 2:8) And יהוה Elohim planted a garden in Ěḏen, to the east, and there He put the man whom He had formed. (Gen 2:9) And out of the ground יהוה Elohim made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food, with the tree of life in the midst of the garden and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. (Gen 2:10) And a river went out of Ěḏen to water the garden, and from there it divided and became four riverheads. (Gen 2:11) The name of the first is Pishon, it is the one surrounding the entire land of Ḥawilah, where there is gold. (Gen 2:12) And the gold of that land is good. Bdellium is there, and the shoham stone. (Gen 2:13) And the name of the second river is Giḥon it is the one surrounding the entire land of Kush. (Gen 2:14) And the name of the third river is Ḥiddeqel it is the one which goes toward the east of Ashshur. And the fourth river is the Euphrates. (Gen 2:15) And יהוה Elohim took the man and put him in the garden of Ěḏen to work it and to guard it.

One command and we trouble ourselves to disobey! What will we do if we get 10?

(Gen 2:16) And יהוה Elohim commanded the man, saying, “Eat of every tree of the garden, (Gen 2:17) but do not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for in the day that you eat of it you shall certainly die.” (Gen 2:18) And יהוה Elohim said, “It is not good for the man to be alone, I am going to make a helper for him, as his counterpart.” (Gen 2:19) And from the ground יהוה Elohim formed every beast of the field and every bird of the heavens, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. And whatever the man called each living creature that was its name. (Gen 2:20) So the man gave names to all livestock, and to the birds of the heavens, and to every beast of the field. But for the man there was not found a helper for him, as his counterpart. (Gen 2:21) So יהוה Elohim caused a deep sleep to fall on the man, and he slept. And He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. (Gen 2:22) And the rib which יהוה Elohim had taken from the man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. (Gen 2:23) And the man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh. This one is called ‘woman,’ because she was taken out of man.”

Great marriage plan! Note that it is not Adam and eve, and Steve, and Sue and…

(His plan has no shame! Beware a snake is coming to try and give his shame and condemnation to mankind! Note the misquote by Eve- or even touch it which allowed the enemy to trick)

(Gen 2:24) For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. (Gen 2:25) And they were both naked, the man and his wife, yet they were not ashamed. (Gen 3:1) And the serpent was craftier than any beast of the field which יהוה Elohim had made, and he said to the woman, “Is it true that Elohim has said, ‘Do not eat of every tree of the garden’?” (Gen 3:2) And the woman said to the serpent, “We are to eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden, (Gen 3:3) but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, Elohim has said, ‘Do not eat of it, nor touch it, lest you die.’ ” (Gen 3:4) and the serpent said to the woman, “You shall certainly not die. (Gen 3:5) “For Elohim knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes shall be opened and you shall be like Elohim, knowing good and evil.” (Gen 3:6) And the woman saw that the tree was good for food that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, and she took of its fruit and ate. And she also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. (Gen 3:7) Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked. And they sewed fig leaves together and made loin coverings for themselves.

Here comes shame! Transgressing His Torah (Instructions) always brings shame- that is why a sinner cannot look you in the eyes! Then starts blame game--

(Gen 3:8) And they heard the sound of יהוה Elohim walking about in the garden in the cool of the day, and Aḏam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of יהוה Elohim among the trees of the garden. (Gen 3:9) And יהוה Elohim called unto Aḏam and said to him, “Where are you?” (Gen 3:10) And he said, “I heard your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid myself.” (Gen 3:11) And He said, “Who made you know that you were naked? Have you eaten of the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?” (Gen 3:12) And the man said, “The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree and I ate.” (Gen 3:13) And יהוה Elohim said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” And the woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”

Disobedience (yes, even if we are deceived) brings YHWH’s judgment! Repent- and be covered by the blood of the Lamb!

(Gen 3:14) And יהוה Elohim said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, you are cursed more than all livestock and more than every beast of the field. On your belly you are to go, and eat dust all the days of your life. (Gen 3:15) “And I put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed1. He shall crush your head, and you shall crush His heel.” Footnote: 1First promise of the Messiah. (Gen 3:16) To the woman He said, “I greatly increase your sorrow and your conception – bring forth children in pain. And your desire is for your husband, and he does rule over you.” (Gen 3:17) And to the man He said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘Do not eat of it’: “Cursed is the ground because of you, in toil you are to eat of it all the days of your life, (Gen 3:18) and the ground shall bring forth thorns and thistles for you, and you shall eat the plants of the field. (Gen 3:19) “By the sweat of your face you are to eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken. For dust you are, and to dust you return.”

(Gen 3:20) And the man called his wife’s name Ḥawwah, because she became the mother of all living. (Gen 3:21) And יהוה Elohim made coats of skin for the man and his wife and dressed them. (Gen 3:22) And יהוה Elohim said, “See, the man has become like one of us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever...” (Gen 3:23) so יהוה Elohim sent him out of the garden of Ěḏen to till the ground from which he was taken, (Gen 3:24) and He drove the man out. And He placed keruḇim at the east of the garden of Ěḏen, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.

Blood required!

(Gen 4:1) And Aḏam knew Ḥawwah his wife, and she conceived and bore Qayin, and said, “I have gained a man from יהוה.” (Gen 4:2) And again, she gave birth to his brother Heḇel. And Heḇel became a keeper of sheep, but Qayin became a tiller of the ground. (Gen 4:3) And it came to be, in the course of time, that Qayin brought an offering of the fruit of the ground to יהוה. (Gen 4:4) And Heḇel also brought of the first-born of his flock and of their fat. And יהוה looked to Heḇel and his offering, (Gen 4:5) but He did not look to Qayin and his offering. And Qayin was very wroth, and his face fell. (Gen 4:6) And יהוה said to Qayin, “Why are you wroth? And why is your face fallen? (Gen 4:7) “If you do well, is there not acceptance? And if you do not do well, sin1 is crouching at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should master it.” Footnote: 1Sin (transgression of the law) was already then known, as we also read in 39:9. (Gen 4:8) And Qayin told Heḇel his brother. And it came to be when they were in the field, that Qayin rose up against Heḇel his brother and killed him.

Be sure- your sin will find you out- even the blood cries out to Heaven!

(Gen 4:9) And יהוה said to Qayin, “Where is Heḇel your brother?” And he said, “I do not know. Am I my brother’s guard?” (Gen 4:10) And He said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground. (Gen 4:11) “And now you are cursed from the earth, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. (Gen 4:12) “If you till the ground, it shall no longer yield its strength to you. You shall be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth.” (Gen 4:13) And Qayin said to יהוה, “My punishment is too great to bear! (Gen 4:14) “See, you have driven me from the face of the ground today, and I am hidden from your face. I shall be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth, and it shall be that anyone who finds me kills me.” (Gen 4:15) And יהוה said to him, “Well, if anyone kills Qayin, vengeance is taken on him sevenfold.” And יהוה set up a sign for Qayin, lest anyone finding him kills him. (Gen 4:16) So Qayin went out from the presence of יהוה and dwelt in the land of Noḏ on the east of Ěḏen. (Gen 4:17) And Qayin knew his wife, and she conceived and bore Ḥanoḵ. And he built a city, and called the name of the city after the name of his son, Ḥanoḵ. (Gen 4:18) And to Ḥanoḵ was born Iraḏ. And Iraḏ brought forth Meḥuya’ĕl, and Meḥuya’ĕl brought forth Methusa’ĕl, and Methusa’ĕl brought forth Lemeḵ. (Gen 4:19) And Lemeḵ took for himself two wives, the name of one was Aḏah, and the name of the second was Tsillah. (Gen 4:20) And Aḏah bore Yaḇal. He was the father of those who dwell in tents, with livestock. (Gen 4:21) And his brother’s name was Yuḇal. He was the father of all those who play the lyre and flute. (Gen 4:22) As for Tsillah, she also bore Tuḇal-Qayin, a smith of all kinds of tools in bronze and iron. And the sister of Tuḇal-Qayin was Naʽamah. (Gen 4:23) And Lemeḵ said to his wives, “Aḏah and Tsillah, hear my voice! Wives of Lemeḵ, listen to my words! For I have killed a man for wounding me, even a young man for hurting me. (Gen 4:24) “Qayin is avenged sevenfold, and Lemeḵ seventy-sevenfold.” (Gen 4:25) And Aḏam knew his wife again, and she bore a son and called his name Shĕth, “For Elohim has appointed me another seed instead of Heḇel, because Qayin had slain him.” (Gen 4:26) And to Shĕth, to him also a son was born. And he called his name Enosh. Then it was begun to call on the Name of יהוה1. Footnote: 1The first record of “calling on the Name of יהוה(Gen 5:1) this is the book of the genealogy of Aḏam. In the day that Elohim created man, He made him in the likeness of Elohim. (Gen 5:2) Male and female He created them, and He blessed them, and called their name ‘Aḏam’ in the day they were created.

Sin (transgression against Torah according to: (1Jn 3:4) everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness.) will require righteous judgment! DEATH!

(Gen 5:3) And Aḏam lived one hundred and thirty years, and brought forth a son in his own likeness, after his image, and called his name Shĕth. (Gen 5:4) And after he brought forth Shĕth, the days of Aḏam were eight hundred years. And he brought forth sons and daughters. (Gen 5:5) So all the days that Aḏam lived were nine hundred and thirty years, and he died. (Gen 5:6) And Shĕth lived one hundred and five years, and brought forth Enosh. (Gen 5:7) And after he brought forth Enosh, Shĕth lived eight hundred and seven years, and brought forth sons and daughters. (Gen 5:8) So all the days of Shĕth were nine hundred and twelve years, and he died. (Gen 5:9) And Enosh lived ninety years, and brought forth Qĕynan. (Gen 5:10) And after he brought forth Qĕynan, Enosh lived eight hundred and fifteen years, and brought forth sons and daughters.

Nephilim—fallen angels mate with women and corrupt seed (Remember as in the days of Noah-so will it be in the coming of the son of man- so we can expect- demons as aliens, spaceships all lying signs and wonders- that will deceive even the elect if it were possible- also note that all signs and wonders are not satan- he only counterfeits the real) Please also note that grace (favor) is not something new for the new testament only- Noah found grace in His eyes!

(Gen 6:1) And it came to be, when men began to increase on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, (Gen 6:2) that the sons of Elohim saw the daughters of men, that they were good. And they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose. (Gen 6:3) And יהוה said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever in his going astray. He is flesh, and his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” (Gen 6:4) The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of Elohim came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, the men of name. (Gen 6:5) And יהוה saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. (Gen 6:6) And יהוה was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. (Gen 6:7) And יהוה said, “I am going to wipe off man whom I have created from the face of the earth, man and beast, creeping creature and birds of the heavens, for I am sorry that I have made them.” (Gen 6:8) But Noaḥ found favor in the eyes of יהוה.

Our Creator has a name and he wants us to know it! YHWH- (Yahweh)

(Isa 42:5) Thus said the Ěl, יהוה, who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread forth the earth and that which comes from it, who gives breath to the people on it, and spirit to those who walk on it: (Isa 42:6)I, יהוה, have called you in righteousness, and I take hold of your hand and guard you, and give you for a covenant to a people, for a light to the gentiles, (Isa 42:7) to open blind eyes, to bring out prisoners from the prison, those who sit in darkness from the prison house. (Isa 42:8) “I am יהוה, that is my Name, and my esteem I do not give to another, nor my praise to idols. (Isa 42:9) “See, the former predictions have come, and new ones I am declaring; before they spring forth I let you hear them.” (Isa 42:10) Sing to יהוה a new song; His praise from the ends of the earth, you who go down to the sea, and all that is in it, you coastlands and you inhabitants of them! (Isa 42:11) Let the wilderness and its cities lift up their voice, the villages where Qĕḏar dwells. Let the inhabitants of Sela sing let them shout from the top of the mountains. (Isa 42:12) Let them give esteem (glory) to יהוה, and declare His praise in the coastlands. (Isa 42:13) יהוה goes forth like a mighty man. He stirs up ardor like a fighter. He cries out, yea, shout aloud. Over His enemies He shows Himself mighty. (Isa 42:14) “I have kept silent from of old, I have been still and held myself back. Like a woman in labor I now cry out, I pant and gasp at once. (Isa 42:15) “I lay waste mountains and hills, and I dry up all their plants. And I shall make rivers become coastlands, and I dry up pools. (Isa 42:16) “And I shall lead the blind by a way they have not known – in paths they have not known I lead them. I make darkness light before them, and crooked places straight. These matters I shall do for them, and I shall not forsake them. (Isa 42:17) “Those who trust in idols, who say to the molded images, ‘You are our mighty ones,’ shall be turned back, utterly ashamed. (Isa 42:18) “Hear, you deaf! And look, you blind, and see. (Isa 42:19) “Who is blind but my servant, or deaf as my messenger whom I send? Who is blind as he who is at peace, and blind as servant of יהוה? (Isa 42:20) “You see much, but do not observe; ears are open, but do not hear.” (Isa 42:21) It has delighted יהוה, for the sake of His righteousness, to make the Torah great and esteemed. (Isa 42:22) But this is a people robbed and plundered, all of them are snared in holes, and they are hidden in prison houses. They have become a prey, with no one to deliver – for plunder, and no one to say, “Restore!(Isa 42:23) Who among you gives ear to this, pays attention and hears for the time to come? (Isa 42:24) Who gave Yaʽaqoḇ for plunder, and Yisra’ĕl to the robbers? Was it not יהוה, He against whom we sinned? For they would not walk in His ways, and they did not obey His Torah! (Isa 42:25) So He has poured on him His burning displeasure and the strength of battle, and it set him on fire all around, yet he did not understand. And it burned against him, yet he did not take it to heart!

Fear NOT!

(Isa 43:1) But now, thus said יהוה, your Creator, O Yaʽaqoḇ, and He who formed you, O Yisra’ĕl, “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you. I have called you by your name, you are mine. (Isa 43:2)When you pass through the waters, I am with you; and through rivers, they do not overflow you. When you walk through fire, you are not scorched, and a flame does not burn you. (Isa 43:3)For I am יהוה your Elohim, the Set-apart One of Yisra’ĕl, your Savior; I gave Mitsrayim for your ransom, Kush and Seḇa in your place. (Isa 43:4) “Since you were precious in my eyes, you have been esteemed, and I have loved you. And I give men in your place, and peoples for your life. (Isa 43:5) “Do not fear, for I am with you. I shall bring your seed from the east, and gather you from the west. (Isa 43:6) “I shall say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ And to the south, ‘Do not keep them back!’ Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth

(Isa 43:7) all those who are called by my Name, whom I have created, formed, even made for my esteem.” (Isa 43:8) He shall bring out a blind people who have eyes, and deaf ones who have ears. (Isa 43:9) All the nations shall be assembled, and the peoples be gathered. Who among them declares this, and show us former events? Let them give their witnesses, to be declared right; or let them hear and say, “It is truth.” (Isa 43:10) “You are my witnesses,” declares יהוה, “And my servant whom I have chosen, so that you know and believe me, and understand that I am He. Before me there was no Ěl formed, nor after me there is none. (Isa 43:11) “I, I am יהוה, and besides me there is no savior.

Our Witness from John! (Yah Chanan= Yah’s mercy)—we get it one way- that way he preached- REPENT!)

(John 1:1) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim, and the Word was Elohim. (John 1:2) He was in the beginning with Elohim. (John 1:3) All came to be through Him,1 and without Him not even one came to be that came to be. Footnote: 1Eph. 3:9, Col. 1:16, Heb. 1:2, Heb. 11:3, 2 Peter 3:5, Ps. 33:6. (John 1:4) In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. (John 1:5) And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. (John 1:6) There was a man sent from Elohim, whose name was Yoḥanan. (John 1:7) This one came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all might believe through him. (John 1:8) He was not that Light, but that he might bear witness of that Light. (John 1:9) He was the true Light, which enlightens every man, coming into the world. (John 1:10) He was in the world, and the world came to be through Him, and the world did not know Him. (John 1:11) He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. (John 1:12) But as many as received Him, to them He gave the authority to become children of Elohim, to those believing in His Name, (John 1:13) who were born, neither of blood nor of the desire neither of flesh nor of the desire of man, but of Elohim. (John 1:14) And the Word became flesh and pitched His tent1 among us, and we saw His esteem, esteem as of an only brought-forth of a father, complete in favor and truth. Footnote: 1An indication that His birth was during the Festival of Booths/Sukkot/Tabernacles. (John 1:15) Yoḥanan bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me has become before me, because He was before me.’ ” (John 1:16) And out of His completeness we all did receive, and favor upon favor, (John 1:17) for the Torah was given through Mosheh – the favor and the truth came through יהושע Messiah.

Loved One, thanks for your prayers and financial offerings- may YHWH direct, protect, provide for you and use you to produce much fruit that will remain in these days approaching called JACOB’S TROUBLE! Your seed is guaranteed by YHWH to produce fruit after its own kind! Listen and help the widows, orphans, Levite types, and those even of your own house where he tells you to give! She ‘mah O’ Israel- HEAR AND OBEY!

Remember you are His treasure because you desire to obey the King of Glory! (John 14:21)He who possesses my commands and guards them, it is he who loves me. And he who loves me shall be loved by my Father, and I shall love him and manifest myself to him.” You are much loved, so draw even closer to Yahshua while there is still time! Remember no matter how dark it gets- even gross darkness on the people- greater is He who is in us, than he that is in the world!
