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

We are facing a time on planet earth that was planned before creation. You, loved one, were born for such a time as this! We must seek the Father’s face for more of His presence and we must decrease. His presence will direct, provide, and deliver us- and will produce fruit that will remain! All things will be possible to those that believe; of course, the Hebraic concept of believing is Not Mental Agreement as even the demons believe- it is DOING the GOSPEL that will produce fruit that will remain. There is a great shaking---true, and only a remnant will remain. These are the days of prayer, fasting and worship as we draw ever close to our soon coming King – Yahshua- and our Elohim- YHWH- the Creator of all things! (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 (trust- faith) without the works (action-doing) is dead? (James 2:21) Was not Aḇraham our father declared right by works (action-doing) when he offered Yitsḥaq his son on the altar? (James 2:22) Do you see that the belief (trust- faith) was working with his works, and by the works the belief (trust- faith) was perfected? (James 2:23) And the Scripture was filled which says, “Aḇraham believed Elohim, (Comment- really believing is doing and taking action on the promise or Scripture of YHWH!) 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 (trust- faith) 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 (trust-faith) is dead without the works (action-doing).

When was the last time you and I laid hands on the sick and did a prayer of faith- believing for them to receive Yahshua’s promise of health and healing by acting upon the Scriptures? When was the last time we led and unbeliever to the stake of Yahshua and His resurrection power? Or prayed for others to receive the Baptism of His Holy Spirit that allows others to be witnesses- (fruit that will actually remain)? Freely we have received and freely we are to give, this is what produces fruit that will remain! Understand that we have no power capable of producing fruit that will remain apart from Him supplying that power to be witnesses! We only get that the way He prescribes and that always will require we humble ourselves as we give Him the right to tame our tongues—it is our directional beacon as a bridle to a horse and a rudder to a ship is! We truly do not even know how to pray as we ought to. We must decrease and He must increase in us- that requires us dying to self by a choice we make of our own will; please note that you really don’t have the power to be a witness until you yield to Him! (Act 1:8)But you shall receive power when the Set-apart Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be my witnesses in Yerushalayim, and in all Yehuḏah and Shomeron, and to the end of the earth.” (Act 2:1) And when the Day of the Festival of Weeks (Shavuot/Pentecost) had come, they were all with one mind in one place. (Act 2:2) And suddenly there came a sound from the heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. (Act 2:3) And there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and settled on each one of them. (Act 2:4) And they were all filled with the Set-apart Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them to speak. Why is this yielding so very important? Let’s look at what is guaranteed by the Creator of all things: (Luke 21:6) These that you see – the days are coming in which not one stone shall be left upon another that shall not be thrown down.” (Luke 21:7) And they asked Him, saying, “Teacher, but when shall this be? And what is the sign when this is about to take place?” (Luke 21:8) And He said, “See that you are not led astray, for many shall come in My Name, saying, ‘I am,’ and, ‘The time is near.’ Then do not go after them. (Luke 21:9) “But when you hear of wars and unrests, do not be alarmed, for these have to take place first, but the end is not immediately.” (Luke 21:10) Then He said to them, “Nation shall rise against nation, and reign against reign. (Luke 21:11) “And there shall be great earthquakes in various places, and scarcities of food and deadly diseases. And there shall be horrors, and great signs from heaven. (Luke 21:12) “But before all this, they shall lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the congregations and prisons, and be brought before sovereigns and rulers for My Name’s sake. (Luke 21:13) “And it shall turn out to you for a witness. (Luke 21:14) “Therefore, resolve in your hearts not to premeditate on what to answer. (Luke 21:15) “I shall give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries shall not be able to refute or resist. (Luke 21:16) “And you shall also be betrayed by parents and brothers and relatives and friends. And some of you shall be put to death. (Luke 21:17) “And you shall be hated by all because of My Name. (Luke 21:18) But not a hair of your head shall be lost at all. (Luke 21:19) “Possess your lives by your endurance! (Luke 21:20) “And when you see Yerushalayim surrounded by armies, then know that its laying waste is near. (Luke 21:21) “Then let those in Yehuḏah flee to the mountains, and let those who are in the midst of her go out, and let not those who are in the fields enter her. (Luke 21:22) “These are Days of Vengeance (Day of the Lord) to fill all that have been written. (Luke 21:23) “And woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing children in those days; there shall be great distress in the earth and wrath upon this people. (Luke 21:24) “And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Yerushalayim shall be trampled underfoot by the gentiles until the times of the gentiles are filled. (Luke 21:25) “And there shall be signs in the sun, and moon, and stars, and on the earth anxiety of nations, in bewilderment at the roaring of the sea, and agitation, (Luke 21:26) men fainting from fear and the expectation of what is coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. (Luke 21:27) “And then they shall see the Son of Aḏam coming in a cloud with power and much esteem. (Luke 21:28) “And when these matters begin to take place, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” (Luke 21:29) And He spoke a parable to them, “Look at the fig tree, and all the trees. (Luke 21:30) “When they have already budded, observing it, you shall know for yourselves that summer is now near. (Luke 21:31) So you also, when you see these matters take place, know that the reign of Elohim is near. (Luke 21:32) “Truly, I say to you, this generation shall by no means pass away till all shall have taken place. (Luke 21:33) “The heaven and the earth shall pass away, but my words shall by no means pass away. (Luke 21:34) “And take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down by gluttony, and drunkenness and worries of this life, and that day come on you suddenly. (Luke 21:35) “For it shall come as a snare on all those dwelling on the face of all the earth. (Luke 21:36) Watch then at all times, and pray that you be counted worthy to escape all this about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Aḏam.” (We want to stand worthy (unashamed) at His appearing on the Earth-having produced much fruit that will remain!)

Luke warm believers—we must wake up! Our money and stuff (Even gold and silver) will not deliver us in the Day of the Lord!

(Eze 7:14) ‘They have blown the trumpet and all is prepared, but no one goes to battle, for my wrath is on its entire crowd. (Eze 7:15) The sword is outside, and the pestilence and the scarcity of food inside. He who is in the field dies by the sword, and he who is in a city, scarcity of food and pestilence devour him, (Eze 7:16) while they who escape of them shall escape and be on the mountains like doves of the valleys, all of them mourning, each for his crookedness. (Eze 7:17) ‘All hands go limp, and all knees become as water. (Eze 7:18) ‘And they shall gird on sackcloth, and be covered with trembling. And shame shall be on every face, and baldness on all their heads. (Eze 7:19) They throw their silver into the streets, and their gold becomes as filth. Their silver and their gold is unable to deliver them in the day of the wrath of יהוה. They do not satisfy their appetite, nor fill their stomachs, because it has been their stumbling-block of crookedness.

Here’s the last days assembly who think they are rich!

(Rev 3:14) “And to the messenger of the assembly in Laodikeia write, ‘The Amĕn, the Trustworthy and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of Elohim, 1 says this: Footnote: 1Col. 1:15, Heb. 1:6. (Rev 3:15) I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I would that you were cold or hot. (Rev 3:16) “So, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I am going to vomit you out of my mouth. (Rev 3:17) Because you say, ‘Rich I am, and I am made rich, and need none at all,’ and do not know that you are wretched, and pitiable, and poor, and blind, and naked. (Rev 3:18) I advise you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire,1 (faith)so that you become rich; and white garments (Set-apart-pure), so that you become dressed, so that the shame of your nakedness might not be shown; and anoint your eyes with ointment, so that you see. (Many have been blinded by the god of this world and are fast asleep on their way to a terrible fate of hells eternal flames! Remember the gates of hell will not prevail against us who pray and only believe for loved ones!) Footnote: 1Ps. 19:10, Ps. 119:72 & 127, Prov. 30:5. (Rev 3:19) As many as I love, I reprove and discipline. So be ardent and repent. (Rev 3:20) “See, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I shall come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. (Rev 3:21)To him who overcomes I shall give to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. (Rev 3:22) “He, who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.” ’ ”

During Yahshua’s millennial reign (1000 years) on the earth during our Sabbath rest- hasatan will be locked up! At the end of the thousand year rest it becomes the 8th day and like our Last Great Day of Sukkot (the 8th day) we receive the fulfillment of LIFE EVERLASTING and a New Heaven and New Earth!

(Rev 20:1) And I saw a messenger (angel) coming down from the heaven, having the key to the pit of the deep and a great chain in his hand. (Rev 20:2) And he seized the dragon, the serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years, (Rev 20:3) and he threw him into the pit of the deep, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should lead the nations no more astray until the thousand years were ended. And after that he has to be released for a little while. (Rev 20:4) And I saw thrones – and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them – and the lives of those who had been beheaded because of the witness they bore to יהושע and because of the Word of Elohim, and who did not worship the beast, nor his image, and did not receive his mark upon their foreheads or upon their hands. And they lived and reigned with Messiah for a thousand years (Rev 20:5) (and the rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended) – this is the first resurrection. (Rev 20:6) Blessed and set-apart is the one having part in the first resurrection. The second death possesses no authority over these, but they shall be priests of Elohim and of Messiah, and shall reign with Him a thousand years. (Rev 20:7) And when the thousand years have ended, Satan shall be released from his prison, (Rev 20:8) and he shall go out to lead the nations astray which are in the four corners of the earth, Goḡ and Maḡoḡ, to gather them together for battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. (Rev 20:9) And they came up over the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the set-apart ones and the beloved city. And fire came down from Elohim out of the heaven and consumed them. (Rev 20:10) And the devil, who led them astray, was thrown into the lake of fire and sulphur where the beast and the false prophet are. And they shall be tortured day and night forever and ever. (Remember the devil is CONDEMNED and you are not if you follow Yahshua!) (Rev 20:11) And I saw a great white throne and Him who was sitting on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away, and no place was found for them. (Rev 20:12) And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before the throne, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged from what was written in the books, according to their works. (Rev 20:13) And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, and death and the grave gave up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. (Rev 20:14) And the death and the grave were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death.1 Footnote: 1See 2:11, 20:6, and 21:8. (Rev 20:15) And if anyone was not found written in the Book of Life, he was thrown into the lake of fire. Okay, now that we have established for ourselves our absolute need to humble ourselves and seek His face and flee religion; let’s turn our hearts to this week’s Torah Scriptures.

Here is this week’s Torah Scriptures Noach- Noah or Rest

Genesis 6:9-11:32; Isaiah 54:1-55:13; 1 Peter 3:13-25

(Gen 6:9) This is the genealogy of Noaḥ. Noaḥ was a righteous man, perfect in his generations. Noaḥ walked with Elohim. (Gen 6:10) And Noaḥ brought forth three sons: Shĕm, Ḥam, and Yepheth. (Gen 6:11) And the earth was corrupt before Elohim, and the earth was filled with violence. (Gen 6:12) And Elohim looked upon the earth and saw that it was corrupt – for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth – (Gen 6:13) and Elohim said to Noaḥ, “The end of all flesh has come before me, for the earth is filled with violence through them. And see, I am going to destroy them from the earth. (Gen 6:14) “Make yourself an ark of gopher wood. Make rooms in the ark, and cover it inside and outside with tar. (Gen 6:15) “And this is how you are to make it: The length of the ark is three hundred cubits, its width fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits. (Gen 6:16) “Make a window for the ark, and complete it to a cubit from above. And set the door of the ark in its side. Make it with lower, second, and third decks. (Gen 6:17) “And see, I myself am bringing floodwaters on the earth, to destroy all flesh in which is the breath of life from under the heavens – all that is on the earth is to die. (Gen 6:18) “And I shall establish my covenant with you, and you shall come into the ark, you and your sons and your wife and your sons’ wives with you. (Gen 6:19) “And of all the living creatures of all flesh, two of each, you are to bring into the ark, to keep them alive with you – a male and a female. (Gen 6:20) “Of the birds after their kind, and of the cattle after their kind, and of all creeping creatures of the earth after their kind, two of each are to come to you, to keep them alive. (Gen 6:21) “As for you, take of all food that is eaten and gather it to yourself. And it shall be food for you and for them.” (Gen 6:22) And Noaḥ did according to all that Elohim commanded him, so he did.

(Gen 7:1) And יהוה said to Noaḥ, “Come into the ark, you and your entire household, because I have seen that you are righteous before me in this generation. (Gen 7:2) “Of all the clean beasts take with you seven pairs, a male and his female; and of the beasts that are unclean two, a male and his female; (Gen 7:3) and of birds of the heavens seven pairs, male and female, to keep offspring alive on the face of all the earth. (Gen 7:4) “For after seven more days I am sending rain on the earth, forty days and forty nights, and shall wipe from the face of the earth all that stand that I created.” (Gen 7:5) And Noaḥ did according to all that יהוה commanded him. (Gen 7:6) Now Noaḥ was six hundred years old when the flood-waters were on the earth. (Gen 7:7) And Noaḥ and his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives went into the ark because of the waters of the flood. (Gen 7:8) Of the clean beasts and of the beasts that are unclean, and of birds, and of all that creep on the earth, (Gen 7:9) two by two they went into the ark to Noaḥ, male and female, as Elohim had commanded Noaḥ. (Gen 7:10) And it came to be after seven days that the waters of the flood were on the earth. (Gen 7:11) In the six hundredth year of Noahs life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of the heavens were opened. (Gen 7:12) And the rain was on the earth forty days and forty nights. (Gen 7:13) On that same day Noaḥ and Shĕm and Ḥam and Yepheth, the sons of Noaḥ, and Noahs wife and the three wives of his sons with them, went into the ark, (Gen 7:14) they and every living creature after its kind, and every beast after its kind, and every creeping creature that creeps on the earth after its kind, and every bird after its kind, every bird of every sort. (Gen 7:15) And they went into the ark to Noaḥ, two by two, of all flesh in which is the breath of life. (Gen 7:16) And those going in, male and female of all flesh, went in as Elohim had commanded him, and יהוה shut him in. (Gen 7:17) And the flood was on the earth forty days, and the waters increased and lifted up the ark, and it rose high above the earth. (Gen 7:18) And the waters were mighty and greatly increased on the earth, and the ark moved about on the surface of the waters. (Gen 7:19) And the waters were exceedingly mighty on the earth, and all the high mountains under all the heavens were covered. (Gen 7:20) The waters became mighty, fifteen cubits upward, and the mountains were covered. (Gen 7:21) And all flesh died that moved on the earth – birds and cattle and beasts and every creeping creature that creeps on the earth, and all mankind. (Gen 7:22) All in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, all that was on the dry land, died. (Gen 7:23) So He wiped off that entire stand which was on the face of the ground – man and beast, creeping creature and bird of the heavens. And they were wiped off from the earth. And only Noaḥ was left and those with him in the ark. (Gen 7:24) And the waters were mighty on the earth, one hundred and fifty days.

Two days into Sukkot- the ark rested!

(Gen 8:1) And Elohim remembered Noaḥ, and all the beasts and all the cattle that were with him in the ark. And Elohim made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters subsided. (Gen 8:2) And the fountains of the deep and the windows of the heavens were stopped, and the rain from the heavens was withheld. (Gen 8:3) And the waters receded steadily from the earth, and at the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters diminished. (Gen 8:4) And in the seventh month, the seventeenth day of the month, the ark rested on the mountains of Ararat. (Gen 8:5) And the waters decreased steadily until the tenth month. In the tenth month, on the first day of the month, the tops of the mountains became visible. (Gen 8:6) And it came to be, at the end of forty days, that Noaḥ opened the window of the ark which he had made, (Gen 8:7) and he sent out a raven, which kept going out and turning back until the waters had dried up from the earth. (Gen 8:8) Then he sent out a dove from him, to see if the waters had receded from the face of the ground. (Gen 8:9) But the dove found no resting place for its feet and returned into the ark to him, for the waters were on the face of all the earth. So he put out his hand and took it, and pulled it into the ark to himself. (Gen 8:10) And he waited yet another seven days, and again he sent the dove out from the ark. (Gen 8:11) And the dove came to him in the evening, and see, a freshly plucked olive leaf was in its mouth. And Noaḥ knew that the waters had receded from the earth. (Gen 8:12) And he waited yet another seven days and sent out the dove, which did not return to him again. (Gen 8:13) And it came to be in the six hundred and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month that the waters were dried up from the earth. And Noaḥ removed the covering of the ark and looked, and saw the surface of the ground was dry. (Gen 8:14) And in the second month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, the earth was dry.

Worship and glorifying YHWH- ALWAYS brings His blessings! Seek His face!

(Gen 8:15) And Elohim spoke to Noaḥ, saying, (Gen 8:16) “Go out of the ark, you and your wife and your sons and your sons’ wives with you. (Gen 8:17) “Bring out with you every living creature of all flesh that is with you: of birds, of cattle and all creeping creatures that creep on the earth. And let them teem on the earth and bear and increase on the earth.” (Gen 8:18) So Noaḥ went out, and his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives with him, (Gen 8:19) every beast, every creeping creature, and every bird, whatever creeps on the earth, according to their kinds, went out of the ark. (Gen 8:20) And Noaḥ built an altar to יהוה, and took of every clean beast and of every clean bird, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. (Gen 8:21) And יהוה smelled a soothing fragrance, and יהוה said in His heart, “Never again shall I curse the ground because of man, although the inclination of man’s heart is evil from his youth, and never again smite all living creatures, as I have done, (Gen 8:22) as long as the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and winter and summer, and day and night shall not cease.” (Comment- Yay! We will always be able to grow things (food) as we remind Him of this promise! - no matter the pestilence and Monsanto types that genetically alter seeds)

(Gen 9:1) And Elohim blessed Noaḥ and his sons, and said to them, “Bear fruit and increase, and fill the earth. (Gen 9:2) “And the fear of you and the dread of you is on every beast of the earth, on every bird of the heavens, on all that creeps on the ground, and on all the fish of the sea – into your hand they have been given. (Gen 9:3) “Every moving creature that lives is food for you. I have given you all, as I gave the green plants. (Gen 9:4) “But do not eat flesh with its life, its blood. (Gen 9:5) “But only your blood for your lives I require, from the hand of every beast I require it, and from the hand of man. From the hand of every man’s brother I require the life of man. (Gen 9:6) “Whoever sheds man’s blood, by man his blood is shed, for in the image of Elohim has He made mankind. (Gen 9:7) “As for you, bear fruit and increase, bring forth teemingly in the earth and increase in it.” (Gen 9:8) And Elohim spoke to Noaḥ and to his sons with him, saying, (Gen 9:9) “And I, see, I establish My covenant with you and with your seed after you, (Gen 9:10) and with every living creature that is with you: of the birds, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you, of all that go out of the ark, every beast of the earth. (Gen 9:11) “And I shall establish my covenant with you, and never again is all flesh cut off by the waters of the flood, and never again is there a flood to destroy the earth.” (Gen 9:12) And Elohim said, “This is the sign of the covenant which I make between me and you, and every living creature that is with you, for all generations to come: (Gen 9:13) “I shall set my rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. (Gen 9:14) “And it shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud, (Gen 9:15) and I shall remember my covenant which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh, and never again let the waters become a flood to destroy all flesh. (Gen 9:16) And the rainbow shall be in the cloud, and I shall see it, to remember the everlasting covenant between Elohim and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.” (Gen 9:17) And Elohim said to Noaḥ, “This is the sign of the covenant which I have established between me and all flesh that is on the earth.” (Gen 9:18) And the sons of Noaḥ who went out of the ark were Shĕm and Ḥam and Yepheth. And Ḥam was the father of Kenaʽan. (Gen 9:19) these three were the sons of Noaḥ, and all the earth was overspread from them. (Gen 9:20) And Noaḥ, a man of the soil, began and planted a vineyard. (Gen 9:21) And he drank of the wine and was drunk, and became uncovered in his tent. (Gen 9:22) And Ḥam, the father of Kenaʽan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside. (Gen 9:23) So Shĕm and Yepheth took a garment, laid it on both their shoulders, and went backward and covered the nakedness of their father, but their faces were turned away, and they did not see their father’s nakedness. (Gen 9:24) And Noaḥ awoke from his wine, and he knew what his younger son had done to him, (Gen 9:25) and he said, “Cursed is Kenaʽan, let him become a servant of servants to his brothers.” (Gen 9:26) And he said, “Blessed be יהוה, the Elohim of Shĕm, and let Kenaʽan become his servant. (Gen 9:27) “Let Elohim enlarge Yepheth, and let him dwell in the tents of Shĕm. And let Kenaʽan become his servant.” (Gen 9:28) And Noaḥ lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years. (Gen 9:29) So all the days of Noaḥ were nine hundred and fifty years, and he died. (Gen 11:1) And all the earth had one language1 and one speech. Footnote: 1Hebrew lip (Gen 11:2) And it came to be, as they set out from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinʽar1, and they dwelt there. Footnote: 1Earlier name for Baḇel (Gen 10:1) And this is the genealogy of the sons of Noaḥ: Shĕm, Ḥam, and Yepheth. And sons were born to them after the flood. (Gen 10:2) The sons of Yepheth: Gomer, and Maḡoḡ, and Maḏai, and Yawan, and Tuḇal, and Mesheḵ, and Tiras. (Gen 10:3) And the sons of Gomer: Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Toḡarmah. (Gen 10:4) And the sons of Yawan: Elishah and Tarshish, Kittim and Doḏanim. (Gen 10:5) from these the coastland peoples of the nations were separated into their lands, everyone according to his language, according to their clans, into their nations.

Ham (cursed) brought forth Kush who brought forth Nimrod- who self exalted!

(Gen 10:6) And the sons of Ḥam: Kush, and Mitsrayim, and Put, and Kenaʽan. (Gen 10:7) and the sons of Kush: Seḇa, and Ḥawilah, and Saḇtah, and Raʽmah, and Saḇteḵa. And the sons of Raʽmah: Sheḇa and Deḏan. (Gen 10:8) and Kush brought forth Nimroḏ, he began to be a mighty one on the earth. (Gen 10:9) He was a mighty hunter before יהוה, therefore it is said, “Like Nimroḏ the mighty hunter before יהוה.” (Gen 10:10) And the beginning of his reign was Baḇel, and Ereḵ, and Akkaḏ, and Kalnĕh, in the land of Shinʽar. (Gen 10:11) From that land he went to Ashshur and built Ninewĕh, and Reḥoḇoth Ir, and Kelaḥ, (Gen 10:12) and Resen between Ninewĕh and Kelaḥ, the great city. (Gen 10:13) And Mitsrayim brought forth Luḏim, and Anamim, and Lehaḇim, and Naphtuḥim,(Gen 10:14) and Pathrusim, and Kasluḥim, from whom came the Philistines and Kaphtorim. (Gen 10:15) And Kenaʽan brought forth Tsiḏon his first-born, and Ḥĕth, (Gen 10:16) and the Yeḇusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgashite, (Gen 10:17) and the Ḥiwwite, and the Arqite, and the Sinite,(Gen 10:18) and the Arwaḏite, and the Tsemarite, and the Ḥamathite. And afterward the clans of the Kenaʽanites were spread abroad. (Gen 10:19) And the border of the Kenaʽanites was from Tsiḏon as you go toward Gerar, as far as Azzah, as you go toward Seḏom, and Amorah, and Aḏmah, and Tseḇoyim, as far as Lasha. (Gen 10:20) These were the sons of Ḥam, according to their clans, according to their languages, in their lands, in their nations. (Gen 10:21) And also to Shĕm, the father of all the children of Ěḇer, the brother of Yepheth the elder, children were born. (Gen 10:22) The sons of Shĕm: Ěylam, and Asshur, and Arpaḵshaḏ, and Luḏ, and Aram. (Gen 10:23) And the sons of Aram: Uts, and Ḥul, and Gether, and Mash. (Gen 10:24) And Arpaḵshaḏ brought forth Shelaḥ, and Shelaḥ brought forth Ěḇer. (Gen 10:25) And to Ěḇer were born two sons, the name of one was Peleḡ, for in his days the earth was divided, and his brother’s name was Yoqtan. (Gen 10:26) And Yoqtan brought forth Almoḏaḏ, and Sheleph, and Ḥatsarmaweth, and Yeraḥ, (Gen 10:27) and Haḏoram, and Uzal, and Diqlah, (Gen 10:28) and Oḇal, and Aḇima’ĕl, and Sheḇa, (Gen 10:29) and Ophir, and Ḥawilah, and Yoḇaḇ. All these were sons of Yoqtan. (Gen 10:30) And their dwelling place was from Mĕysha as you go toward Sephar, a mountain of the east. (Gen 10:31) These were the sons of Shĕm, according to their clans, according to their languages, in their lands, according to their nations. (Gen 10:32) These were the clans of the sons of Noaḥ, according to their generations, in their nations. And from these the nations were divided on the earth after the flood.

Man tends to always move toward self-exaltation—which we must flee!

(Gen 11:3) And they said to each other, “Come, let us make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” And they had brick for stone, and they had asphalt for mortar. (Gen 11:4) And they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens, and make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered over all the face of the earth.” (Gen 11:5) Then יהוה came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. (Gen 11:6) And יהוה said, “Look, they are one people and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do! And now, they are not going to be withheld from doing whatever they plan to do. (Gen 11:7) “Come, let Us go there and confuse their language, so that they do not understand one another’s speech.” (Gen 11:8) And יהוה scattered them from there, over the face of all the earth and they left off building the city. (Gen 11:9) That is why its name was called Baḇel1, because there יהוה confused the language of all the earth, and from there יהוה scattered them over the face of all the earth. Footnote: 1Baḇel is derived from a verb which means “to confuse". (Gen 11:10) This is the genealogy of Shĕm: Shĕm was a hundred years old and brought forth Arpaḵshaḏ, two years after the flood. (Gen 11:11) And after he brought forth Arpaḵshaḏ, Shĕm lived five hundred years, and brought forth sons and daughters. (Gen 11:12) And Arpaḵshaḏ lived thirty-five years, and brought forth Shelaḥ. (Gen 11:13) And after he brought forth Shelaḥ, Arpaḵshaḏ lived four hundred and three years, and brought forth sons and daughters. (Gen 11:14) And Shelaḥ lived thirty years, and brought forth Ěḇer. (Gen 11:15) And after he brought forth Ěḇer, Shelaḥ lived four hundred and three years, and brought forth sons and daughters. (Gen 11:16) And Ěḇer lived thirty-four years, and brought forth Peleḡ. (Gen 11:17) And after he brought forth Peleḡ, Ěḇer lived four hundred and thirty years, and brought forth sons and daughters. (Gen 11:18) And Peleḡ lived thirty years, and brought forth Reʽu. (Gen 11:19) and after he brought forth Reʽu, Peleḡ lived two hundred and nine years, and brought forth sons and daughters. (Gen 11:20) And Reʽu lived thirty-two years, and brought forth Seruḡ. (Gen 11:21) And after he brought forth Seruḡ, Reʽu lived two hundred and seven years, and brought forth sons and daughters. (Gen 11:22) And Seruḡ lived thirty years, and brought forth Naḥor. (Gen 11:23) And after he brought forth Naḥor, Seruḡ lived two hundred years, and brought forth sons and daughters. (Gen 11:24) And Naḥor lived twenty-nine years, and brought forth Teraḥ. (Gen 11:25) And after he brought forth Teraḥ, Naḥor lived one hundred and nineteen years, and brought forth sons and daughters. (Gen 11:26) And Teraḥ lived seventy years, and brought forth Aḇram, Naḥor, and Haran. (Gen 11:27) And this is the genealogy of Teraḥ: Teraḥ brought forth Aḇram, Naḥor, and Haran. And Haran brought forth Lot. (Gen 11:28) And Haran died before his father Teraḥ in the land of his birth, in Ur of the Chaldeans. (Gen 11:29) And Aḇram and Naḥor took wives: the name of Aḇram’s wife was Sarai, and the name of Naḥor’s wife, Milkah, the daughter of Haran the father of Milkah and the father of Yiskah. (Gen 11:30) And Sarai was barren, she had no child. (Gen 11:31) And Teraḥ took his son Aḇram and his grandson Lot, son of Haran, and his daughter-in-law Sarai, his son Aḇram’s wife, and they went out with them from Ur of the Chaldeans to go to the land of Kenaʽan. And they came to Ḥaran and dwelt there. (Gen 11:32) And the days of Teraḥ came to be two hundred and five years, and Teraḥ died in Ḥaran.

No more shame! Yay YHWH! Sing and Fear Not!

(Isa 54:1) “Sing, O barren one, you who did not bear! Break forth into singing, and cry aloud, you who have not been in labor! For the children of the deserted one are more than the children of the married woman,” said יהוה. (Isa 54:2) “Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings, spare not. Lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes. (Isa 54:3) “For you shall break forth to the right and to the left, and your seed inherit the nations, and make the deserted cities inhabited. (Isa 54:4) Do not fear, for you shall not be put to shame, nor hurt, you shall not be humiliated. For the shame of your youth you shall forget, and not remember the reproach of your widowhood any more. (Isa 54:5) For your Maker is your husband, יהוה of hosts is His Name, and the Set-apart One of Yisra’ĕl is your Redeemer. He is called the Elohim of all the earth. (Isa 54:6) “For יהוה has called you like a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, like a wife of youth when you were refused,” declares your Elohim. (Isa 54:7) “For a little while I have forsaken you, but with great compassion I shall gather you. (Isa 54:8) “In an overflow of wrath I hid my face from you for a moment, but with everlasting kindness I shall have compassion on you,” said יהוה, your Redeemer. (Isa 54:9) “For this is the waters of Noaḥ to me, in that I have sworn that the waters of Noaḥ would never again cover the earth, so have I sworn not to be wroth with you, nor to rebuke you. (Isa 54:10) “For though the mountains be removed and the hills be shaken, my kindness is not removed from you, nor is my covenant of peace shaken,” said יהוה, who has compassion on you. (Isa 54:11) “O you afflicted one, tossed with storm, and not comforted, see, I am setting your stones in antimony, and shall lay your foundations with sapphires, (Isa 54:12) and shall make your battlements of rubies, your gates of crystal, and all your walls of precious stones, (Isa 54:13) and all your children taught by יהוה, and the peace of your children great. (Isa 54:14) “In righteousness you shall be established – far from oppression, for you shall not fear, and far from ruin, for it does not come near you. (Isa 54:15) “See, they shall indeed assemble, but not because of me. Whoever shall assemble against you falls for your sake! (Isa 54:16) “See, I myself have created the blacksmith who blows the coals in the fire, who brings forth an instrument for his work. And I have created the waster to destroy. (Isa 54:17) “No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall prove wrong. This is the inheritance of the servants of יהוה, and their righteousness from me,” declares יהוה.

How do we buy without price (like the 10 virgins) - doing His words- it costs you!

(Isa 55:1) “Oh everyone who thirsts, come to the waters. And you who have no silver, come, buy and eat. Come buy wine and milk without silver and without price. (Isa 55:2) “Why do you weigh out silver for what is not bread, and your labor for what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and let your being delight itself in fatness. (Isa 55:3) “Incline your ear, and come to me. Hear so that your being lives. And let me make an everlasting covenant with you, the trustworthy kindnesses of Dawiḏ. (Isa 55:4) “See, I have given Him as a witness to the people, a Leader and a Commander for the people. (Isa 55:5) “See, a nation you do not know you shall call, and a nation who does not know you run to you, because of יהוה your Elohim, and the Set-apart One of Yisra’ĕl, for He has adorned you.” (Isa 55:6) Seek יהוה while He is to be found, call on Him while He is near. (Isa 55:7) Let the wrong forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts. Let him return to יהוה, who has compassion on him, and to our Elohim, for He pardons much.

His thoughts are higher than ours!

(Isa 55:8) “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares יהוה. (Isa 55:9) “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. (Isa 55:10) “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from the heavens, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, and give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, (Isa 55:11) so is my Word that goes forth from my mouth – it does not return to me empty, but shall do what I please, and shall certainly accomplish what I sent it for. (Isa 55:12) “For with joy you go out, and with peace you are brought in – the mountains and the hills break forth into singing before you, and all the trees of the field clap the hands. (Isa 55:13) “Instead of the thorn the cypress comes up, and instead of the nettle the myrtle comes up. And it shall be to יהוה for a name, for an everlasting sign which is not cut off.”

Obeying His word cleanses us!

(1Pe 1:13) Therefore, having girded up the loins of your mind, being sober, set your expectation perfectly upon the favor that is to be brought to you at the revelation of יהושע Messiah, (1Pe 1:14) as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts in your ignorance, (1Pe 1:15) instead, as the One who called you is set-apart, so you also should become set-apart in all behavior, (1Pe 1:16) because it has been written, “Be set-apart (holy), for I am set-apart.” (1Pe 1:17) And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, pass the time of your sojourning in fear, (1Pe 1:18) knowing that you were redeemed from your futile way of life inherited from your fathers, not with what is corruptible, silver or gold, (1Pe 1:19) but with the precious blood of Messiah, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, (1Pe 1:20) foreknown, indeed, before the foundation of the world, but manifested in these last times for your sakes, (1Pe 1:21) who through Him believe in Elohim who raised Him from the dead and gave Him esteem, so that your belief and expectation are in Elohim. (1Pe 1:22) Now that you have cleansed your lives in obeying the truth through the Spirit to unfeigned brotherly love, love one another fervently with a clean heart, (1Pe 1:23) having been born again – not of corruptible seed, but incorruptible – through the living Word of Elohim, which remains forever, (1Pe 1:24) because “All flesh is as grass, and all the esteem of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, and its flower falls away, (1Pe 1:25) but the Word of Elohim remains forever.”1 And this is the Word, announced as Good News to you. Footnote: 1Isa. 40:6-8.

Here is our reward for repentance and waking up by seeking His face NOW!

(Rev 21:1) And I saw a renewed heaven and a renewed earth, for the former heaven and the former earth had passed away, and the sea is no more. (Rev 21:2) And I, Yoḥanan, saw the set-apart city, renewed Yerushalayim, coming down out of the heaven from Elohim, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. (Rev 21:3) And I heard a loud voice from the heaven saying, see, the Booth of Elohim is with men, and He shall dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and Elohim Himself shall be with them and be their Elohim. (Rev 21:4) “And Elohim shall wipe away every tear from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, nor mourning, nor crying. And there shall be no more pain, for the former matters have passed away.” (Rev 21:5) And He who was sitting on the throne said, “See, I make all matters new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and trustworthy.” (Rev 21:6) And He said to me, “It is done! I am the ‘Aleph’ and the ‘Taw’, the Beginning and the End. To the one who thirsts I shall give of the fountain of the water of life without payment. (Rev 21:7) The one who overcomes shall inherit all this, and I shall be his Elohim and he shall be My son. (Rev 21:8) “But as for the cowardly (fearful), and untrustworthy, and abominable, and murderers, and those who whore, and drug sorcerers, and idolaters, and all the false (liars and pretenders), their part is in the lake which burns with fire and sulphur, which is the second death.” (Rev 21:9) And one of the seven messengers who held the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me and spoke with me, saying, “Come, I shall show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.” (Rev 21:10) And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the set-apart Yerushalayim, descending out of the heaven from Elohim, (Rev 21:11) having the esteem of Elohim, and her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal, (Rev 21:12) and having a great and high wall, having twelve gates, and at the gates twelve messengers, and names written on them, which are those of the twelve tribes of the children of Yisra’ĕl:1 Footnote: 1See Eze. 47:22-23, Eze. 48:31-34.

Thanks for your prayers and financial offerings- I know how to live in abundance and know how to live without- but I desire that you may have your needs met when our money becomes worthless--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 if you neglect those of your own house- the word declares we are worse than unbelievers!

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 and allow Him to manifest Himself to you while there is still time! (Rom 13:10) Love does no evil to a neighbor. Therefore, love is completion of the Torah. (Rom 13:11) And do this, knowing the time, which it is already the hour for us to wake up from sleep, for now our deliverance is nearer than when we did believe. (Rom 13:12) The night is far advanced, the day has come near. So let us put off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. (Rom 13:13) Let us walk becomingly, as in the day, not in wild parties and drunkenness, not in living together and indecencies, not in fighting and envy, (Rom 13:14) but put on the Master יהושע Messiah, and make no provision for the lusts of the flesh. P.S. Those of us who are older should know that if you make provision for your flesh nature, it will rule you and cause you to stumble!

Shalom to your home,
