Shabbat Shalom Loved One!

Past and current weekly Torah Studies seen at and for “about us” info see

Last Monday at sundown started what many of us believers believes is the Biblical New Year! Do we all have to agree- CERTAINLY NOT! As promised, we will start our Torah Cycle over again in the interest of our King restoring all things. (Mat 7:7) Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: (Mat 7:8) everyone that asks receives and he that seeks finds; and to him that knocks it shall be opened.

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

(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. (Yah Chanan or John- his name in Hebrew explains what he was sent for- to teach repentance; as his name means Yah’s Mercy) and you only can receive it one way Loved One’- by REPENTING!

(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 (dwelled among) us, and we saw His esteem (glory), 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. (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. (John 1:18) No one has ever seen Elohim.1 The only brought-forth Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He did declare.2 Footnotes: 1See 5:37, 6:46, 1 John 4:12. 2The pre-existent Son declared, and was the One who appeared to men. (John 1:19) Now this was the witness of Yoḥanan when the Yehuḏim sent from Yerushalayim priests and Lĕwites to ask him, “Who are you?” (John 1:20) And he confessed, and did not deny, but confessed, “I am not the Messiah.” (John 1:21) And they asked him, “What then, are you Ěliyahu?” So he said, “I am not.” “Are you the Prophet?” And he answered, “No.” (John 1:22) Therefore they said to him, “Who are you, so that we give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself?” (John 1:23) He said, “I am a voice of one crying in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way of יהוה,’ as the prophet Yeshayahu said.” (John 1:24) And those sent were of the Pharisees, (John 1:25) and they asked him, saying, “Why then do you immerse if you are not the Messiah, nor Ěliyahu, nor the Prophet?” (John 1:26) Yoḥanan answered them, saying, “I immerse in water, but in your midst stands One whom you do not know, (John 1:27) the One coming after me, who has become before me, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loosen.” (John 1:28) This took place in Bĕyth Anyah beyond the Yardĕn, where Yoḥanan was immersing. (John 1:29) On the next day Yoḥanan saw יהושע coming toward him, and said, “See, the Lamb of Elohim who takes away the sin of the world!1 Footnote: 1Mt. 1:21, Titus 2:14, 1 John 3:5 & 8. (John 1:30) “This is He of whom I said, ‘After me comes a Man who has become before me, for He was before me.’1 Footnote: 1See v. 15. John 1:31) “And I did not know Him, but that He might be revealed to Yisra’ĕl, therefore I came immersing in water.” (John 1:32) And Yoḥanan bore witness, saying, “I have seen the Spirit coming down from heaven like a dove and remain on Him. (John 1:33) “And I did not know Him, but He who sent me to immerse in water said to me, ‘Upon whom you see the Spirit coming down and remaining on Him, this is He who immerses in the Set-apart Spirit.’ (John 1:34) “And I have seen and have witnessed that this is the Son of Elohim.” John 1:35) Again the following day, Yoḥanan was standing with two of his taught ones, (John 1:36) and looking at יהושע walking, he said, “See the Lamb of Elohim!”

(John 1:37) And the two taught ones heard him speaking, and they followed יהושע. (John 1:38) And יהושע turning, and seeing those following, said to them, “What do you seek?” And they said to Him, “Rabbi” (which means Teacher), “where are you staying?” (John 1:39) He said to them, “Come and see.” They went and saw where He was staying, and remained with Him that day. Now it was about the tenth hour. (John 1:40) Andri, the brother of Shimʽon Kĕpha, was one of the two who heard from Yoḥanan, and followed Him. (John 1:41) First he found his own brother Shimʽon, and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which means the Anointed). (John 1:42) And he brought him to יהושע. And looking at him, יהושע said, “You are Shimʽon the son of Yonah, you shall be called Kĕpha” (which means A Stone). (John 1:43) On the following day יהושע wished to go to Galil, and He found Philip and said to him, “Follow Me.” (John 1:44) And Philip was from Bĕyth Tsaiḏa, the city of Andri and Kĕpha. (John 1:45) Philip found Nethanĕ’l and said to him, “We have found Him whom Mosheh wrote of in the Torah, and the prophets: יהושע of Natsareth – the son of Yosĕph.” (John 1:46) And Nethanĕ’l said to him, “Is it possible for any good matter to come out of Natsareth?” Philip said to him, “Come and see.” (John 1:47) יהושע saw Nethanĕ’l coming toward Him, and said of him, “See, truly a Yisra’ĕlite, in whom is no deceit!” (John 1:48) Nethanĕ’l said to Him, “From where do you know me?” יהושע answered and said to him, “Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.” (John 1:49) Nethanĕ’l answered and said to Him, “Rabbi, You are the Son of Elohim! You are the Sovereign of Yisra’ĕl!” (John 1:50) יהושע answered and said to him, “Because I said to you, ‘I saw you under the fig tree,’ do you believe? Greater things than that you shall see.” (John 1:51) And He said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, from now on you shall see the heaven opened, and the messengers (Angels) of Elohim ascending and descending upon the Son of Aḏam.”

Truth Seekers, we have studied and reviewed much about the coming darkness and fiery trials we can expect in the days ahead. Please do remember the Scriptures declare this Exodus will be a far greater deliverance than even Moses and Israel crossing the Red Sea. Thank you for your prayers and intercession as I am meeting part of our family of loved ones in the Deep South and they are delightful people indeed!

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

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

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

Can we even imagine thinking we were serving YHWH our whole lives’ and hear Him tell us we inherited lies and were workers of lawlessness- that He never knew us and to depart from us; that we actually were disobedient following pagan traditions we inherited? This experience would and will cause many to go screaming in horror, weeping and gnashing of teeth, into the flames of hell! Heaven- Oh Yah- Change us NOW! Reveal your TRUTH to us that we may be pleasing in your sight! Nothing is too hard for you YHWH!

There it is in a nutshell once again. You are family if you are humble enough to be a truth searcher. One who desires truth and obedience to your Creator- more than you want acceptance from men and their traditions. This group would include us who are willing to pick up our burial stake and follow Him. Why do I use burial stake? Because you and I must be willing to decrease as He increases in us. He changes not and that only leaves you and I to do the changing, Yahshua put it like this: (Matthew 16:24) Then said Yahshua to his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. (Matthew 16:25) For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. (Matthew 16:26) For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

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

How do we hunger and thirst for righteousness?

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

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

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

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

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

WE are the ones addressed below by James- (Ya’akov) who are dispersed for accepting the pagan worship we inherited- scattered all over the world- we repent to be RESTORED!

(Jas 1:1) Yaʽaqoḇ, a servant of Elohim and of the Master יהושע Messiah, to the twelve tribes who are in the dispersion: Greetings. (Jas 1:2) My brothers, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, (Jas 1:3) knowing that the proving of your belief (faith-trust) works endurance. (Jas 1:4) And let endurance have a perfect work, so that you be perfect and complete, lacking in naught. (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. (Jas 1:9) And let the lowly brother boast in his exaltation, (Jas 1:10) but the rich in his humiliation, because as a flower of the field he shall pass away. (Jas 1:11) For the sun rose with burning heat, and withered the grass, and its flower fell, and its pretty appearance perished. So also the rich man shall fade away in his ways. (Jas 1:12) Blessed is the man who does endure trial, for when he has been proved, he shall receive the crown of life which the Master has promised to those who love Him. (Jas 1:13) Let no one say when he is enticed, “I am enticed by Elohim,” for Elohim is not enticed by evil matters, and He entices no one. (Jas 1:14) But each one is enticed when he is drawn away by his own desires and trapped. (Jas 1:15) Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin. And sin, when it has been accomplished, brings forth death. (Jas 1:16) Do not go astray, my beloved brothers. (Jas 1:17) Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no change, nor shadow of turning.1 Footnote: 1See Mal. 3:6. (Jas 1:18) Having purposed it, He brought us forth by the Word of truth, for us to be a kind of first-fruits of His creatures. (Jas 1:19) So then, my beloved brothers, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath, (Jas 1:20) for the wrath of man does not work the righteousness of Elohim. (Jas 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. (Jas 1:22) And become doers of the Word, and not hearers only, 1 deceiving you. Footnote: 1See Mt. 7:24-27, Luke. 6:46-49, Luke. 8:21, Rom. 2:13, Heb. 4:11, Rev. 22:14. (Jas 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, (Jas 1:24) for he looks at himself, and goes away, and immediately forgets what he was like. (Jas 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. (Jas 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. (VAIN) (Jas 1:27) Clean and undefiled religion before the Elohim and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction and to keep ourselves unstained (unpolluted) from the world.

Here are this week’s Torah Scriptures: Bereshit* “New Beginnings”

*Bereshit (Pronounced ber- e- sheet)

Genesis 1:1- 6:8; Isaiah 42:5-43:11; John Chapter One, James Chapter 1

(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 it, 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. (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. (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.”

Note that everything YHWH created was good and multiplied after its own kind!

(Note also that YHWH created MAN- male and female; male and man with womb- womb-man or woman)

(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. (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.” (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.

Sabbath for rest!

(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. (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. (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.”

NOTE: YHWH did NOT make Adam and Steve- or Adam and Eve, Suzy and Jane…

(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.” (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.

Note that transgressing YHWH’s commands (SIN according to 1 John) brings forth a spirit of fear and loss of COURAGE! YHWH did not give us a spirit of fear-

(Rom 8:15) You did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” (Rom 8:16) The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of Elohim, (Rom 8:17) and if children, also heirs – truly heirs of Elohim, and co-heirs with Messiah, if indeed we suffer with Him, in order that we also be exalted together. (Rom 8:18) For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the esteem that is to be revealed in us.

(Note also that none of us- including Adam and Eve want to take responsibility for our disobedience- we prefer to blame others- our church father’s teachings, our circumstances, our overwhelming storms etc)

(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, which 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. (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.” (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.

Adam “KNEW” his wife is a Hebrew idiom for had sexual intercourse with- most intimate among the husband and wife relationships

(Gen 4:1) And Adam 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. (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

Note again that YHWH created MAN- male and female; or man with womb- womb-man or woman)

(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. (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. (Gen 5:11) So all the days of Enosh were nine hundred and five years, and he died. (Gen 5:12) And Qĕynan lived seventy years, and brought forth Mahalal’ĕl. (Gen 5:13) After he brought forth Mahalal’ĕl, Qĕynan lived eight hundred and forty years, and brought forth sons and daughters. (Gen 5:14) So all the days of Qĕynan were nine hundred and ten years, and he died. (Gen 5:15) Mahalal’ĕl lived sixty-five years, and brought forth Yereḏ. (Gen 5:16) After he brought forth Yereḏ, Mahalal’ĕl lived eight hundred and thirty years, and brought forth sons and daughters. (Gen 5:17) So all the days of Mahalal’ĕl were eight hundred and ninety-five years, and he died. (Gen 5:18) And Yereḏ lived one hundred and sixty-two years, and brought forth Ḥanoḵ. (Gen 5:19) And after he brought forth Ḥanoḵ, Yereḏ lived eight hundred years, and brought forth sons and daughters. (Gen 5:20) So all the days of Yereḏ were nine hundred and sixty-two years, and he died. (Gen 5:21) And Ḥanoḵ lived sixty-five years, and brought forth Methushelaḥ. (Gen 5:22) And after he brought forth Methushelaḥ, Ḥanoḵ walked with Elohim three hundred years, and brought forth sons and daughters. (Gen 5:23) All the days of Ḥanoḵ were three hundred and sixty-five years. (Gen 5:24) And Ḥanoḵ walked with Elohim. Then he was no more, for Elohim took him. (Gen 5:25) And Methushelaḥ lived one hundred and eighty-seven years, and brought forth Lemeḵ. (Gen 5:26) And after he brought forth Lemeḵ, Methushelaḥ lived seven hundred and eighty-two years, and brought forth sons and daughters. (Gen 5:27) So all the days of Methushelaḥ were nine hundred and sixty-nine years, and he died. (Gen 5:28) And Lemeḵ lived one hundred and eighty-two years, and brought forth a son, (Gen 5:29) and called his name Noaḥ, saying, “This one does comfort us concerning our work and the toil of our hands, because of the ground which יהוה has cursed.” (Gen 5:30) And after he brought forth Noaḥ, Lemeḵ lived five hundred and ninety-five years, and brought forth sons and daughters. (Gen 5:31) So all the days of Lemeḵ were seven hundred and seventy-seven years, and he died. (Gen 5:32) And Noaḥ was five hundred years old, and Noaḥ brought forth Shĕm, Ḥam, and Yepheth.

We see below that grace is not some NEW THING in the New Testament like many of us were taught-NOAH found grace in His eyes! NOTE ALSO- and be aware- The Nephillim were (are) the fallen angels (demonic-alien- beings) that mated with earth’s women! Yahshua (Jesus) tells us why this is extremely important, as we can now expect these demon alien beings to manifest in our times also; (Mat 24:37) As the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. (Mat 24:38) “For as they were in the days before the flood, eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noaḥ entered into the ark, (Mat 24:39) and they did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also shall the coming of the Son of Aḏam (Yahshua) be.

(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 (GRACE) in the eyes of יהוה.

(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 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!

Good News- FEAR NOT! Our redeemer lives1

(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.

Loved One, YHWH loves us to put Him (His Word and promises) in remembrance- (Isa 43:26) put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou may be justified. He promises us in Jeremiah- (Jeremiah 1:12) and יהוה said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching over my word to do it.” (Jeremiah 1:12) Then said (YHWH) unto me, you have well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it. Let’s guarantee our victory for our loved ones- let’s agree with His promises and good report and not what is seen- the apparent facts. Remember with me, hasatan comes immediately to steal the promise or the word which is the promise seed we have planted by our prayer. We must stand firm, and continue to give thanks; we are guaranteed to be tested by the enemy of our souls- but he is a liar and the father of all lies- Yahshua is the TRUTH- no matter what we are seeing- this is how we fight the good fight we are to fight- the fight of faith and trust! Taking hold of our confession we are making amongst a cloud of witnesses. Let’s start this NEW YEAR BIBLICALLY by kicking down the gates of hell and agreeing with Yahshua- SET MY PROPLE FREE THAT THEY MAY COME AND WORSHIP! When new believe it is because Father has given us revelation that His promises are true- YES AND AMEN or so be it; (Mat 16:17) And Yahshua answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona (BELIVER): for flesh and blood has not revealed it to you, but my Father which is in heaven. (Mat 16:18) And I say also to you, you are Kefa (Peter), and upon this rock (foundation) I will build my Body/Assembly; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Relationship brings revelation and victory from the Father of Lights!

Shalom – it is time for our Victory (1Co 15:57) Thanks to YHWH Elohim who gives us the overcoming victory through our Master יהושע Messiah.

Shalom to your home Loved One, (Thanks for your agreeing prayers for all our families- including yours!)
