Most of you are aware, but recapping; Thursday, I buried and celebrated the life of my beautiful 27 yr old daughter. My Princess, Lindsay Ann, would have turned 28 in April. Thanks to so many hundreds of you who wrote such consoling and merciful, loving prayers and thoughts to us.

The reality is; she is dancing before YHWH and her body is asleep in the earth, awaiting the resurrection at the Last Trump which is appearing closer dailyNext week we will answer How can we live it? Many of you friends and family called it the “LINDSAY LIFE” on her face book page. Of course she would never take credit herself- as she walked out her salvation in humbled- fear and trembling- trusting her redeemer for love and direction, which having sought Him yielding- could give away the love she received! (That’s why she could be called Princess Laughs-a- Lot) (John 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. (John 13:35) “By this shall all know that you are my taught ones, if you have love for one another.”

Also many friends and family spoke of her love. Her sister Amanda said at her funeral service- I thought she was MY best friend---what's with these other 1900 people----they all think she's their best friend??? It was so funny the way she said it- so many people testifying of her love walk... it was a testimony of her love for all. Many said they had never been to a funeral that was so uplifting and none ever that big- packed out never seen so many people at a funeral. Thanks for your loving prayers and help- they mean so much ---only YHWH knows how much you have helped. YOU guys are loved. That is just how she was- she loved all and judged none- I suspect she left that to YHWH as He is alone the Judge and Torah giver (Instructions often translated LAW).

Today I am reposting the first part of last week’s Study because I wanted to remind us all- LIFE IS ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS- (Not things!) FIRST WITH YHWH (Yahweh) our Creator through the shed blood of Yahshua (Jesus) and next with people as all the Torah and the Prophets hang on these two commandments- Love Yahweh with your whole heart, mind, and strength and love your neighbor as yourself! This foundation is so important before we find in out next week’s study how YHWH provided for us to walk in His power and love- which His type of LOVE alone will never fail. Relationships! On these 2 commandments hang the entire Torah (Law-Instructions) and the Prophets!

(Mat 22:36) “Teacher: which is the great command in the Torah?” (Mat 22:37) And יהושע said to him, “‘you shall love יהוה your Elohim with all your heart, and with all your being, and with your entire mind.’ (Mat 22:38) This is the first and great command. (Mat 22:39) “And the second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ (Mat 22:40) On these two commands hang all the Torah and the Prophets.”

Why is this so important concerning relationships? IF you love YHWH you will obey Him from that love- you will choose to honor what He asks of you. Let’s look closely at Yahshua’s statements about what indicates love. (John 14:15) If you love me, you shall guard (keep) my commands.1 Footnote: 1See Ex. 20:6, vv. 21&23, 1 John 5:2-3, 2 John v. 6. (John 14:16) “And I shall ask the Father, and He shall give you another Helper, to stay with you forever (John 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. (John 14:18) “I shall not leave you orphans – I am coming to you. (John 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. (John 14:20) “In that day you shall know that I am in my Father and you in me, and I in you. (John 14:21) He who possesses my commands and guards (keeps) 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.”

Loved Ones, you have really shown your colors. You have poured out merciful, loving and wonderful prayers on our family during this week of burying and celebrating the going home of our precious Princess Lindsay Ann- Thank you! We see a harvest of souls and that is what she would desire; that no one is kept from the Kingdom; especially those of her friends and family. She often talked of those closest to her she feared for their true redemption. She would desire that the many deceived would awaken and turn their whole hearts to really know Him and not just know about Him. Some of us have gone to church for many years thinking we are Kingdom bound and have been greatly deceived. Let’s look at a few Scriptures that Lindsay Ann really understood; as there is much deception by hasatan against the present Last Day Laodicean Church Religious System. We must get back to the reality of a real and intimate relationship with the Creator of Life, YHWH, through Messiah Yahshua (Jesus) who IF we seek Him in obedience and submission to His Word and commands- His blood takes away the sin of the world (SIN=Transgressions against the Law of YHWH according to 1 John). Look at Yahshua’s words below:

(Mat 7:13) “Enter in through the narrow gate! Because the gate is wide – and the way is broad – that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter in through it. (Mat 7:14)Because the gate is narrow and the way is hard pressed1 which leads to life, and there are few who find it. Footnote: 1Or the way is afflicted. (Mat 7:15) “But beware of the false prophets,1 who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are savage wolves. Footnote: 1See v. 23 (Mat 7:16) By their fruits you shall know them. Are grapes gathered from thorn bushes or figs from thistles? (Mat 7:17) “So every good tree yields good fruit, but a rotten tree yields wicked fruit. (Mat 7:18) “A good tree is unable to yield wicked fruit, and a rotten tree to yield good fruit. (Mat 7:19) “Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. (Mat 7:20) “So then, by their fruits you shall know them –

(Mat 7:21) “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Master (Lord), Master (Lord),’ shall enter into the reign (Kingdom) of the heavens, but he who is doing the desire (will) of my Father in the heavens.

(Mat 7:22) “Many shall say to me in that day, ‘Master, Master, have we not prophesied in Your Name, and cast out demons in Your Name, and done many mighty works in Your Name?’ (Mat 7:23) “And then I shall declare to them, ‘I never knew you, depart from me, you who work lawlessness!1 Footnote: 1 See v. 15. Work Lawlessness? (Torahless) This is about those who think grace is a license to sin or transgress His Law/Instructions. We were mostly all taught that obedience is legalism- NOT SO! Obeying YHWH is obedience and brings forth guaranteed blessings, obeying mankind’s added laws and rules in most of today’s church pagan based holy days (holidays) is what is “legalism”. Just like in the days of Yahshua (Jesus) as He broke all the Pharisees rulers’ added rules but never broke Moses and the Prophets as if he had done that– He would have been a SINNER and could not have been the perfect Lamb of YHWH without spot or blemish! He was and is the Lamb of YHWH who takes away the sin of the world! Also, please note these are Christians who use His name- not Buddhists, Hindu, or Moslem. They were just lawless- thinking the Law or Torah (Moses and the Prophets) were done away with.

Hmmmm…the gate is wide that leads to destruction and MANY enter? Narrow is the path that leads to Life and FEW find it? Let’s determine what is many and few. Could we agree that they are not equal? Is it possible that MANY is probably larger (perhaps much larger) than FEW? Think with me for a minute; is FEW 30%, 20%, 10%, 5%? Not sure- but it is most likely a very small percentage. MAYBE 5%-10% (FEW) enter into LIFE and 60%, 70%, 80%, 90% or 95% (MANY) enter into destruction. We might want to consider not following a system and get a relationship by seeking Him with all our hearts. Look around you and start counting out of a hundred; a number as small as 3-5% or the FEW that enter into Life Everlasting- Uhhhh…. Might be time we seek Him with all our hearts! (Jeremiah 29:11) ‘For I know the plans I am planning for you,’ declares יהוה, ‘plans of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and expectancy. (Jeremiah 29:12) ‘Then you shall call on me, and shall come and pray to me, and I shall listen to you. (Jeremiah 29:13) ‘And you shall seek me, and shall find me, when you search for me with all your heart1. Footnote: 1Dt. 4:29, Joel 2:12.

Who is this “false prophet who leads us away from the narrow path of life and restrains us from entering into the Kingdom with his deception? Let’s look at The Torah (Law/Instructions) for YHWH’s definition of a false prophet since even Sha’ul (Paul) taught us; (2Ti 3:16) All Scripture is breathed by Elohim and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for setting straight, for instruction in righteousness, (2Ti 3:17) that the man of Elohim might be fitted, equipped for every good work.

We must also ask what Scripture was he referring to is breathed by Elohim (God)? The New Testament was not yet written at that time so it was not Scripture yet, so he was referring to Moses and the Prophets which Yahshua said is not passed away if there is still a heaven and earth. Sha’ul (Paul) used the Scripture to prove all things – even that Yahshua (Jesus) was Messiah. I am reasonably sure that Sha’ul (Paul) did not say- I can prove Yahshua is Messiah because I wrote a letter last week to the Romans or to the Ephesians etc last week- go and read that. With that groundwork we can understand our need to quote the Torah and Prophets (Law) for our definition of false prophet that deceives us many in this Laodicean church age, we shall see that a “FALSE PROPHET” is one who takes us away from guarding/obeying Torah (Instructions/Law) of Moses.

(Deuteronomy 13:1) “When there arises among you a prophet or a dreamer of dreams, and he shall give you a sign or a wonder, (Deuteronomy 13:2) and the sign or the wonder shall come true, of which he has spoken to you, saying, ‘Let us go after other mighty ones – which you have not known – and serve them,’ (Deuteronomy 13:3) do not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams, for יהוה your Elohim is trying you to know whether you love יהוה your Elohim with all your heart and with all your being. (Deuteronomy 13:4) Walk after יהוה your Elohim and fear Him, and guard His commands and obey His voice, and serve Him and cling to Him. (Deuteronomy 13:5) “And that prophet or that dreamer of dreams is put to death, because he has spoken apostasy against יהוה your Elohim – who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim (Egypt) and redeemed you from the house of bondage – to make you stray from the way in which יהוה your Elohim commanded you to walk. Thus you shall purge the evil from your midst. Please note as you read them that the first four commands teach us how to love YHWH Elohim the way He declares He wants to be loved. The last six commands teach us how to love our neighbor as ourselves. Actions of obedience are critical to His definition of love. So many in this day of Laodicean believers; think in the Renewed Covenant or New Testament- Yahshua did away with the commands as He taught to love one another- that is nearly funny but very sad. We should have enough sense to see how He defines love above in His own words! We should and must understand that in the BEGINNING- Yahshua was the word and is the word- YES- it was Yahshua at Mt. Sinai – He is the word that was later made flesh and dwelled among us. Never was it a graceless Father and a graceful son- Yahshua! Yahshua never disagreed with His Father but only spoke what He heard His Father speak and did what He saw His Father do. Even Noah and Moses found grace in His eyes! Most of this last day’s assembly/body of believers in Messiah has believed in a Torah less- Lawless Yahshua (Another Jesus) and have determined that grace is a license to do away with the Torah- Instructions- defined as “LAW” in KJV. What is sin? (1Jn 3:4) Whosoever commits sin transgresses also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. I must assume these last day’s believers among us think these are mankind’s laws these sinners are breaking! NOPE! These are YHWH’s instruction- TORAH- “LAW” they assume or think these have done away with. Let’s go to Yahshua’s words again- since this Scripture is part of our study this week- I am wondering what part of “THINK NOT” we just don’t understand! (Mat 5:17) Do not think that I came to destroy the Torah or the Prophets.1 I did not come to destroy but to complete. Footnote: 1The Law and the Prophets is a term used for the pre-Messianic Scriptures. (Mat 5:18) “For truly, I say to you, till the heavens and the earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall by no means pass from the Torah till all be done.1 Footnote: 1Lk. 16:17. (Mat 5:19)

Question for us scholars- Is their still a Heaven and Earth? It seems to even us casual observers that there is- so the Torah and prophets is not done away with- no matter how we miss-define Scripture!

Here’s a quick look at Pastor Least in the Kingdom! YIKES! (Grace and Mercy- Wow- they are in the kingdom apparently!)

“Whoever, then, breaks one of the least of these commands, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the reign (Kingdom) of Heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the reign of the heavens. (Mat 5:20) “For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees,1 you shall by no means enter into the reign of the heavens. Footnote: 1Mt. 15:3-9, Mk. 7:7-13, John 7:19, Acts 7:53, Rom. 2:23-27, Gal.


Why is obedience in honoring loved ones so important to YHWH? If your spouse, parent or child said they loved you but never wanted to spend any time with you or ever did what you requested- it would not take that long to deduce that they did not really love or honor you would it? Their ACTIONS speak louder than their words. We, as the BRIDE OF MESSIAH must honor our husband just like wives are required to for their husbands and as the husband Messiah will love us as His own flesh; just like the husband is required to do for his wife. Same way with our Creator- we are required to DO the Gospel and commands of YHWH! Many say but do not DO! Let’s look at the Shem Tov Hebrew copy of Matthew and see what Yahshua taught- (Mat 23:2) saying, “The scribes and the Pharisees sit on the seat of Mosheh. (Mat 23:3) “Therefore, whatever he says (MOSES) for you you to guard, guard and do. But do not do according to their works, for they say, and do not do. (Eph 5:22) Wives, subject yourselves to your own husbands, as to the Master. (Eph 5:23) Because the husband is head of the wife, as also the Messiah is head of the assembly, and He is Savior of the body. (Eph 5:24) But as the assembly is subject to Messiah, so also let the wives be to their own husbands in every respect. (Eph 5:25) Husbands, love your wives, as Messiah also did love the assembly and gave Himself for it…(Eph 5:33) Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself (love here is security- taking care of her like himself- his own flesh); and the wife see that she reverence (honors-respects) her husband. Why does the Word declare this sort of method of showing love to each other. Obviously; the wife needs security and to know she is cared for and the husband needs to be honored- that is just how Yahshua created us. Not bad or wrong or lesser that the other, just different needs. When we as husbands fail as providers- and in these storms today- that is not so difficult to accomplish- so naturally the wife will try and provide for herself (The need is in her for security); and when the wife does not respect or honor her husband thinking that he must “EARN” that respect, the husband will go looking for that honor. It (The need for honor) is in him- just like Messiah was not honored in His own home town and COULD DO NO MIGHTY WORKS!

Here is the answer for our dilemmas LOVED ONES! Our need is never supplied by others- that is- we seem to want others (horizontal relationships) to do the changing and sometimes we foolishly pray- YAH change so and so- we even think and pray if our children- our boss, our husbands- our parents, our wives, our girlfriends, our boyfriends, our teachers etc. WOULD CHANGE all would be well. Loved One we cannot even change ourselves much less others. Our Heavenly Father alone can do that so our prayers need to be about obedience VERTICAL with us and the Father. IF we will obey Him vertical He can and will CHANGE US! We must humble ourselves and submit to His words. We change as He will not- He is the same yesterday, today and forever. That only leaves us to change. When we submit- forget now about horizontal relationships changing- we can only submit for ourselves- hasatan will flee and we will receive Yahshua’s peace. He has overcome this world so we can be in good cheer and FEAR NOT!

(Jas 4:4) Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with Elohim? 1 Whoever therefore intends to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of Elohim. Footnote: 1Mt. 13:22, Luke. 4:5-6, Luke. 14:33, Rom. 12:2, 1 John 2:15-17. (Jas 4:5) Or do you think that the Scripture speaks to no purpose? Does the Spirit which dwells in us intensely crave unto envy? (Jas 4:6) But He gives greater favor. Because of this He says, “Elohim resists the proud, but gives favor to the humble.”

(Jas 4:7) So then subject (Submit ourselves to His words and instructions – Torah- as this obedience is always a VERTICAL choice) yourselves to Elohim. Resist the devil1 and he shall flee from you. Footnote: 1Or adversary. (Jas 4:8) Draw near to Elohim and He shall draw near to you. Cleanse hands, sinners. And cleanse the hearts, you double-minded! (Jas 4:9) Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to dejection. (Jas 4:10) Humble yourselves in the sight of the Master, and He shall lift you up.(Jas 4:11) Brothers, do not speak against one another. He that speaks against a brother and judges his brother speaks against Torah and judges Torah. And if you judge Torah, you are not a doer of Torah but a judge. (Jas 4:12) There is one Lawgiver and Judge, who is able to save and to destroy. Who are you to judge another? NOTE: The Lawgiver (Yahshua- Jesus) is not and never was lawless! That is the other Jesus we have been presented by the religious church system handed down through the ages with all the added traditions that are not Biblical such as Easter, Christmas, Halloween, Lent (weeping for Tamuz) which traditions Yahshua warned make the the Word of none effect and actually were worshipping Him IN VAIN! (Mat 15:7) Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, (Mat 15:8) This people draws nigh unto me with their mouth, and honor me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. (Mat 15:9) But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men (added traditions). We cannot add nor subtract from His word- He changes NOT- as He is the same yesterday, today, and forever- yes even at Mt Sinai- before The Word became flesh and dwelled among us- full of His radiant glory and the exact representation of His being!

(Deuteronomy 4:1) “And now, O Yisra’ĕl, listen to the laws and the right-rulings which I am teaching you to do, so that you live, and shall go in and possess the land which יהוה Elohim of your fathers is giving you. (Deuteronomy 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.

To summarize, we must obey His word; not accept passed down pagan traditions and say we changed them for YHWH and we cannot fix others as that is horizontal, that is to say they are on our level and much like us; we can only submit vertically to obey (for ourselves) the Father as He alone can change- and then only if we so choose! For instance we can choose to forgive others as an act of vertically obeying the Fathers commands reiterated by Yahshua (Jesus) whether they deserve it or not. Usually they do not, but since we are not the Righteous Judge, we are not allowed that right. Here are Yahshua’s own words on the matter; (Mat 6:14)For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father shall also forgive you. (Mat 6:15) “But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither shall your Father forgive your trespasses. Do we realize Loved Ones; no matter how much we know about Messiah (The Christ) Yahshua; WE MUST DO AS HE SAYS OR WE WILL BE HELL BOUND? Should not we obey Him in this manner?

Please Loved One- Let us consider asking (for our own destinies and eternal well being- that we may really see Lindsay Ann and other Loved Ones who have passed on before us) the Creator of all things- “Is there anything that I must deal with and change- that perhaps I have foolishly considered gold and silver – that to You- YHWH- is wood hay and stubble- is there anything about my life that MUST be changed before I must stand in front of you? Please help me on Yah to deal with these- BURN them out of me today before I stand in your presence- give me wisdom and understanding- and a hunger for your truth and righteousness- that I someday will hear you say- “Well done- good and faith filled servant (Obedient) Enter into my JOY!” NEXT WEEK- How can we live it? Many of you called it the “LINDSAY LIFE”, of course she would never take credit herself as she walked out her salvation with humbling- fear and trembling!

This Week’s Torah Scriptures: Teruma “Offerings”

Instructions about a dwelling place – we are to be His set apart dwelling place!

(Exodus 26:1) “And make the Dwelling Place with ten curtains of fine woven linen and blue and purple and scarlet material. Make them, with keruḇim, the work of a skilled workman. (Exodus 26:2) “The length of each curtain is twenty-eight cubits, and the width of each curtain four cubits, all the curtains having one measure. (Exodus 26:3) “Five curtains are joined to each other, and five curtains are joined to each other. (Exodus 26:4) “And you shall make loops of blue on the edge of the end curtain on one set, and do the same on the edge of the end curtain of the second set. (Exodus 26:5) “Make fifty loops in the one curtain and make fifty loops on the edge of the end curtain of the second set, the loops being opposite to each other. (Exodus 26:6) “And you shall make fifty hooks of gold, and shall join the curtains together with the hooks, and the Dwelling Place shall be one. (Exodus 26:7) “And you shall make curtains of goats’ hair, for a tent over the Dwelling Place, make eleven curtains. (Exodus 26:8) “The length of each curtain is thirty cubits, and the width of each curtain four cubits, one measure to the eleven curtains. (Exodus 26:9) “And you shall join the five curtains by themselves, and the six curtains by themselves, and you shall double over the six curtains at the front of the Tent. (Exodus 26:10) “And you shall make fifty loops on the edge of the curtain that is outer most in one set, and fifty loops on the edge of the curtain of the second set.

(Exodus 26:16) “Ten cubits is the length of a board, and a cubit and a half the width of each board, (Exodus 26:17) two tenons in each board for binding one to another. Do the same for all the boards of the Dwelling Place. (Exodus 26:18) “And you shall make the boards for the Dwelling Place, twenty boards for the south side, (Exodus 26:19) and make forty sockets of silver under the twenty boards, two sockets under each of the boards for its two tenons. (Exodus 26:20) “And for the second side of the Dwelling Place, on the north side, twenty boards, (Exodus 26:21) and their forty sockets of silver, two sockets under each of the boards. (Exodus 26:22) “And for the extreme parts of the Dwelling Place, westward, make six boards, (Exodus 26:23) and make two boards for the two back corners of the Dwelling Place. (Exodus 26:24) “And they are double beneath and similarly they are complete to the top, to the one ring. So it is for both of them, they are for the two corners. (Exodus 26:25) “And they shall be eight boards, and their sockets of silver, sixteen sockets – two sockets under the one board, and two sockets under the other board. (Exodus 26:26) “And you shall make bars of acacia wood, five for the boards on one side of the Dwelling Place, (Exodus 26:27) and five bars for the boards on the other side of the Dwelling Place, and five bars for the boards of the side of the Dwelling Place, for the extreme parts westward, (Exodus 26:28) with the middle bar in the midst of the boards, going through from end to end. (Exodus 26:29) “And overlay the boards with gold, and make their rings of gold as holders for the bars, and overlay the bars with gold. (Exodus 26:30) “And you shall rise up the Dwelling Place according to its pattern which you were shown on the mountain. (Exodus 26:31) “And you shall make a veil of blue and purple and scarlet material, and fine woven linen, the work of a skilled workman, made with keruḇim. (Exodus 26:32) “And you shall put it on the four columns of acacia wood overlaid with gold, their hooks of gold, upon four sockets of silver. (Exodus 26:33) “And you shall hang the veil from the hooks, and shall bring the ark of the Witness there, behind the veil. And the veil shall make a separation for you between the Set-apart and the Most Set-apart Place. (Exodus 26:34) “And you shall put the lid of atonement upon the ark of the Witness in the Most Set-apart Place. (Exodus 26:35) “And you shall set the table outside the veil, and the lampstand opposite the table on the side of the Dwelling Place toward the south, and put the table on the north side. (Exodus 26:36) “And you shall make a covering for the door of the Tent, of blue and purple and scarlet material, and fine woven linen, made by a weaver. (Exodus 26:37) “And you shall make for the covering five columns of acacia wood, and overlay them with gold, their hooks of gold, and you shall cast five sockets of bronze for them.

The Altar

(Exodus 27:1) “And you shall make an altar of acacia wood, five cubits long and five cubits wide – the altar is square – and its height three cubits. (Exodus 27:2) “And you shall make its horns on its four corners; its horns are of the same. And you shall overlay it with bronze. (Exodus 27:3) “And you shall make its pots to receive its ashes, and its shovels and its basins and its forks and its fire holders. Make all its utensils of bronze. (Exodus 27:4) “And you shall make a grating for it, a bronze network, and shall make on the network four bronze rings at its four corners, (Exodus 27:5) and shall put it under the rim of the altar beneath, so that the network is halfway up the altar. (Exodus 27:6) “And you shall make poles for the altar, poles of acacia wood, and shall overlay them with bronze. (Exodus 27:7) “And the poles shall be put in the rings, and the poles shall be on the two sides of the altar for lifting it. (Exodus 27:8) “Make it hollow with boards. As it was shown to you on the mountain, so they are to make it. (Exodus 27:9) “And you shall make the courtyard of the Dwelling Place: for the south side screens for the courtyard made of fine woven linen, one hundred cubits long for one side, n(Exodus 27:10) and its twenty columns and their twenty sockets of bronze, the hooks of the columns and their bands of silver, (Exodus 27:11) and so for the north side in length, screens one hundred cubits long, with its twenty columns and their twenty sockets of bronze, and the hooks of the columns and their bands of silver. (Exodus 27:12) “And the width of the courtyard on the west side screens of fifty cubits, with their ten columns and their ten sockets. (Exodus 27:13) “The width of the courtyard on the east side fifty cubits. (Exodus 27:14) “And the screens on one side of the gate fifteen cubits, with their three columns and their three sockets. (Exodus 27:15) “On the other side screens of fifteen cubits, with their three columns and their three sockets. (Exodus 27:16) “And for the gate of the courtyard a covering twenty cubits long, of blue and purple and scarlet material, and fine woven linen, made by a weaver – four columns and four sockets. (Exodus 27:17) “All the columns around the courtyard have bands of silver, their hooks silver and their sockets bronze. (Exodus 27:18) “The length of the courtyard is one hundred cubits, and the width fifty by fifty, and the height five cubits, woven of fine linen thread, and its sockets of bronze. (Exodus 27:19) “All the utensils of the Dwelling Place for all its service, all its pegs, and all the pegs of the courtyard, are bronze. (Exodus 27:20) “And you, you are to command the children of Yisra’ĕl to bring you clear oil of pressed olives for the light, to cause the lamp to burn continually. (Exodus 27:21) “In the Tent of Meeting, outside the veil which is before the Witness, Aharon and his sons are to tend it from evening until morning before יהוה – a law forever to their generations, from the children of Yisra’ĕl.

The Gift of Wisdom for Solomon

(Should we not ask for wisdom also?)

(Jas 1:5) If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of Elohim, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it shall be given to him. (Jas 1:6) But he should ask in belief (faith-trust), not doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. (Jas 1:7) For that man should not think that he shall receive whatever from the Master – (Jas 1:8) he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

(1Ki 5:12) And יהוה gave Shelomoh wisdom, as He promised him. And there was peace between Ḥiram and Shelomoh, and the two of them made a covenant. (1Ki 5:13) And Sovereign Shelomoh rose up compulsory labor out of all Yisra’ĕl. And the compulsory labor was thirty thousand men. (1Ki 5:14) And he sent them to Leḇanon, ten thousand a month by courses – they were one month in Leḇanon, two months at home. And Aḏoniram was over the compulsory labor. (1Ki 5:15) And Shelomoh had seventy thousand bearing burdens, and eighty thousand hewing stone in the mountains, (1Ki 5:16) besides three thousand three hundred from the chiefs of Shelomoh’s deputies who were over the work, those ruling over the people who labored in the work. (1Ki 5:17) And the sovereign commanded, and they brought large stones, precious stones, to lay the foundation of the House with hewn stones. (1Ki 5:18) And Shelomoh’s builders, and Ḥiram’s builders, and the men of Geḇal did hew, and prepared timber and stones to build the House. (1Ki 6:1) And it came to be, in the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Yisra’ĕl had come out of the land of Mitsrayim, in the fourth year of the reign of Shelomoh over Yisra’ĕl, in the month of Ziw, which is the second month that he began to build the House of יהוה. (1Ki 6:2) And the house which Sovereign Shelomoh built for יהוה was sixty cubits long, and twenty wide, and thirty cubits high. (1Ki 6:3) And the porch at the front of the Hĕḵal of the House was twenty cubits long, according to the breadth of the House, and its width ten cubits, from the front of the House. (1Ki 6:4) And he made for the House windows with narrowed frames. (1Ki 6:5) And against the wall of the House he built rooms all around, against the walls of the House, all around the Hĕḵal and the Speaking Place. Thus he made side rooms all around. (1Ki 6:6) The lowest side room was five cubits wide, and the middle one was six cubits wide, and the third one was seven cubits wide; for he made narrow ledges around the outside of the House, so as not to lay hold on the walls of the House. (1Ki 6:7) And the House, when it was being built, was built with finished stone made ready beforehand, so that no hammer or chisel or any iron tool was heard in the House while it was being built. (1Ki 6:8) The doorway for the middle side room was on the right side of the House. And they went up by stairs to the middle side rooms, and from the middle to the third. (1Ki 6:9) So he built the House and completed it, and he paneled the House with beams and boards of cedar. (1Ki 6:10) And he built the side rooms of the structure against the entire House, each five cubits high, and they were fastened to the House with cedar beams. (1Ki 6:11) And the word of יהוה came to Shelomoh, saying, (1Ki 6:12) “This House which you are building – if you walk in My laws, and do My right-rulings, and shall guard all My commands and walk in them, then I shall confirm My word with you, which I spoke to your father Dawiḏ, (1Ki 6:13) and shall dwell in the midst of the children of Yisra’ĕl, and not forsake My people Yisra’ĕl.”

(Mat 5:33) Again, you heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform your oaths to יהוה.Mat 5:34)But I say to you, do not swear at all, neither by the heaven, because it is Elohim’s throne; (Mat 5:35) nor by the earth, for it is His footstool; nor by Yerushalayim, for it is the city of the great Sovereign; (Mat 5:36) nor swear by your head, because you are not able to make one hair white or black. (Mat 5:37) “But let your word ‘Yea’ be ‘Yea,’ and your ‘No’ be ‘No.’ And what goes beyond these is from the wicked one.

Traps set by religion against mankind (male and female)!

(Mar 10:1) And rising up from there He came into the borders of Yehuḏah by the other side of the Yardĕn. And crowds gathered to Him again, and as He usually did, He was teaching them again. (Mar 10:2) And Pharisees came and asked Him, “Is it right for a man to put away his wife?” – trying Him. (Mar 10:3) And He answering, said to them, “What did Mosheh command you?” (Mar 10:4) And they said, “Mosheh allowed a man to write a certificate of divorce, and to put her away.” (Mar 10:5) And יהושע said to them, “Because of the hardness of your heart he wrote you this command. (Mar 10:6) However, from the beginning of the creation, Elohim ‘made them male and female.(Mar 10:7) For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife, (Mar 10:8) and the two shall become one flesh,’ so that they are no longer two, but one flesh. (Mar 10:9) Therefore what Elohim has joined together, let man (male or female) not separate.” (Mar 10:10) And in the house His taught ones asked Him about this again. (Mar 10:11) And He said to them, “Whoever puts away his wife and marries commits adultery against her. (Mar 10:12) “And if a woman puts away her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.”1 Footnote: 1Mt. 5:32. (Mar 10:13) And they were bringing little children for Him to touch them, but the taught ones were rebuking those who were bringing them. (Mar 10:14) And when יהושע saw it, He was much displeased and said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not forbid them, for of such is the reign (Kingdom) of Elohim. (Mar 10:15) “Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the reign of Elohim as a little child, shall certainly not enter into it.” (Mar 10:16) And taking them up in His arms, laying His hands on them, He blessed them. (Mar 10:17) And as He was setting out on the way, one came running, and knelt before Him, and asked Him, “Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit everlasting life?” (Mar 10:18) And יהושע said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good except one – Elohim. (Mar 10:19) You know the commands, ‘Do not commit adultery,’ ‘Do not murder,’ ‘Do not steal,’ ‘Do not bear false witness,’ ‘Do not rob,’ ‘Respect your father and your mother.’(Comment- these are not suggestions) (Mar 10:20) And he answering, said to Him, “Teacher, all these I have watched over from my youth.” (Mar 10:21) And יהושע, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, “One matter you lack: Go, sell all you possess and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven. And come follow me, taking up the stake.” (Mar 10:22) But he, being sad at this word, went away grieved, for he had many possessions.

Hard to serve two providers (Masters) YHWH Elohim or Money (Mammon)

(Mar 10:23) And יהושע, looking around, said to His taught ones, “How hard it is for those who have riches to enter into the reign of Elohim!” (Mar 10:24) And the taught ones were astonished at His words. And יהושע responding, said to them again, “Children, how hard it is for those who trust in riches to enter into the reign of Elohim! (Mar 10:25) It is easier for a camel (Comment- this was never about a camel- the original Hebrew (Aramaic) word can mean large rope or camel- obviously not understanding the concept from its intent has cost the translators truth) to enter through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter into the reign of Elohim.” (Mar 10:26) And they were immeasurably astonished, saying among themselves, “Who then is able to be saved?” (Mar 10:27) And looking at them, יהושע said, “With men it is impossible, but not with Elohim, for with Elohim all is possible.” (Mar 10:28) And Kĕpha began to say to Him, “See, we have left all and we have followed you.” (Mar 10:29) יהושע said, “Truly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for the sake of Me and the Good News, (Mar 10:30) who shall not receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and in the age to come, everlasting life. (Mar 10:31) But many who are first shall be last, and the last first.” (Mar 10:32) And they were on the way going up to Yerushalayim, and יהושע was going before them. And they were astonished, and those who followed were afraid. And again He took the twelve aside and began to say to them what was about to befall Him: (Mar 10:33) “See, we are going up to Yerushalayim, and the Son of Aḏam shall be delivered to the chief priests and to the scribes, and they shall condemn Him to death and shall deliver Him to the gentiles, (Mar 10:34) and they shall mock Him, and flog Him, and spit on Him, and kill Him. And the third day He shall rise again.” (Mar 10:35) And Yaʽaqoḇ and Yoḥanan, the sons of Zaḇdai, came up to Him, saying, “Teacher, we wish that you would do for us whatever we ask.” (Mar 10:36) And He said to them, “What do you wish me to do for you?” (Mar 10:37) And they said to Him, “Grant us to be seated in your esteem, one on your right hand and the other on your left.” (Mar 10:38) But יהושע said to them, “You do not know what you ask. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, and be immersed with the immersion that I am immersed with?”(Mar 10:39) And they said to Him, “We are able.” And יהושע said to them, “You shall indeed drink the cup that I drink, and with the immersion I am immersed with you shall be immersed, 1 Footnote: 1Mt. 20:23. (Mar 10:40) but to sit on my right hand and on my left is not mine to give, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared.” (Mar 10:41) And when the ten heard it, they began to be sorely displeased with Yaʽaqoḇ and Yoḥanan. (Mar 10:42) And יהושע, calling them near, said to them, “You know that those who think to rule the gentiles are masters over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. (Mar 10:43) But it is not so among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant. (Mar 10:44) “And whoever wishes to be first among you, shall be servant of all. (Mar 10:45) “For even the Son of Aḏam did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” (Mar 10:46) And they came to Yeriḥo. And as He was leaving Yeriḥo with His taught ones and a large crowd, blind Bartimai, the son of Timai, was sitting by the way begging. (Mar 10:47) And when he heard that it was יהושע of Natsareth, he began to cry out and to say, “יהושע, Son of Dawiḏ, have compassion on me!” (Mar 10:48) And many were reprimanding him to be silent, but he cried out all the more, “Son of Dawiḏ, have compassion on me!” (Mar 10:49) And יהושע stopped and said, “Call him.” And they called the blind man, saying to him, “Take courage, arise, He is calling you.” (Mar 10:50) And he, throwing aside his garment, rose and came to יהושע. (Mar 10:51) יהושע responding said to him, “What do you desire I do for you?” And the blind man said to Him, “Rabboni, that I receive my sight.” (Mar 10:52) And יהושע said to him, “Go, your belief (Faith-trust) has healed you.” And immediately he saw again and followed יהושע on the way.

LOVED ONES, thank you for your prayers and compassion and help for us during this time. May YHWH grant you every desire of your heart! Remember- Yahweh hears our prayers- (1Jn 5:14) and this is the boldness that we have in Him, that if we ask whatever according to His desire, He hears us. (1Jn 5:15) And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him. (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.

Loved One, this trumpet blast is drawing near, will you and I make the changes in our lives that we be found as witnesses of Yahshua? (1Co 15:50) And this I say, brothers, that flesh and blood are unable to inherit the reign of Elohim, neither does corruption inherit incorruption. (1Co 15:51) See, I speak a secret (mystery) 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, 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?” (1Co 15:56) And the sting of death is the sin, and the power of the sin is the Torah. (1Co 15:57) But thanks to Elohim who gives us the overcoming through our Master יהושע Messiah. (1Co 15:58) Therefore, my beloved brothers (and sisters), be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the work of the Master, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Master.

Shalom Loved One,
