Shabbat Shalom Loved One!        (This study is attached and available at the website below) Torah Studies with translations, for “about us” information.  Please share our studies as YHWH is restoring all to Himself- 104 countries have now checked out and read our weekly Torah Studies at Shabbat Shalom Loved One! This is nothing we have done- Mighty is YHWH whose mercy endures forever as He restores all things!

Loved One- this week it has not been very difficult to determine what I was to teach and share with you for your prayerful consideration; STORMY WINDS AND FIERY TRIALS and how we may respond to become overcomers. What is expected of us and what will bring us His shalom and victory? Will we murmur as many did to their own destruction in the first Exodus? We all remember reading about that in the Book of Exodus. Surely we now realize that the account written is only a pattern, a sample for us who are alive today for the real EXODUS, much greater than the crossing of the Red Sea and wandering in the desert 40 years.

“Sailing, sailing, over the bounding main,
 For many a stormy wind shall blow- ‘fore we sail home again!”

Storm winds MUST come. Fire MUST come. Everything MUST be tested to its foundation. Our Messiah is coming back for a bride who is without spot or blemish. He came the first time to take the harlot wife’s bitter waters and death for her whoredoms and pagan traditions. He’s coming next to find His bride without blemish; marry her, and judge and everyone and action unrighteous. If we are self sufficient how will we learn to trust and allow Him to change and redirect our lives as we grow closer and more like Him? When we have plenty (money/resources) of our own ability and have everything figured out- how well would we really fare when those resources and abilities are insufficient? When there may be a famine in the land? When there is no electricity/food/water etc? Are we preparing our hearts and minds to approach our Messiah and King with thanksgiving or murmuring and complaining? Sadly most of the Earth will curse Him according to the Scriptures. Loved One, today we will discuss the storms, fiery trials that are guaranteed us; but we will make up our minds and change our attitudes to become OVERCOMERS! Please remember the anti-messiah and hasatan are only allowed to test who the bride really is. Yes, we may even be tested unto death, so what? Death has no sting on us- we will be right back here for Sukkot as He sets up His Kingdom here on the Earth for the 1000 year millennium reign- if we are faithful. We will be faithful to Him who is faithful and true! Here’s how sure we can be of His deliverance with mighty signs and wonders against and overcoming insurmountable odds and conditions placed upon us.

Deuteronomy 4:30 “In your distress (Comment: Storm, fiery trials), when all these words shall come upon you in the latter days, (Now) then you shall return to יהוה your Elohim and shall obey His voice. Deuteronomy 4:31 “For יהוה your Elohim is a compassionate Ěl, He does not forsake you, nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore to them. Deuteronomy 4:32  “For ask now of the days that are past, which were before you, since the day that Elohim created man on the earth, and ask from one end of the heavens to the other end of the heavens, whether there has been a Word as great as this, or has been heard like it. Deuteronomy 4:33 “Has a people heard the voice of Elohim speaking out of the midst of the fire, as you have heard, and live? Deuteronomy 4:34  “Or has Elohim tried to go and take for Himself a nation from the midst of a nation by trials, and by signs, and by wonders, and by battle, and by a strong hand and an outstretched arm, and by great fearsome deeds, according to all that יהוה your Elohim did for you in Mitsrayim before your eyes?  Deuteronomy 4:35 “You have been shown it, to know that יהוה Himself is Elohim; there is no one beside Him. Deuteronomy 4:36  “From the heavens He let you hear His voice, to instruct you, and on earth He showed you His great fire, and you heard His words out of the midst of the fire. Deuteronomy 4:37  “And because He loved your fathers, therefore He chose their seed after them, and brought you out of Mitsrayim with His Presence, with His great power, Deuteronomy 4:38  to drive out from before you nations greater and stronger than you, to bring you in, to give you their land as an inheritance, as it is today. Deuteronomy 4:39 “And you shall know today, and shall recall to your heart that יהוה Himself is Elohim in the heavens above and on the earth beneath; there is none else. We will see even greater deliverance so FEAR NOT! If we must fear anything FEAR YHVH! (Yahweh)

Here is what we are warned about as we likely know by now loved one; we are the last day’s assembly of believers on the earth, considered LAODICEA by Yahshua (Jesus).We are REQUIRED to grow and OVERCOME the storms and fiery trials and tests or be removed as vomit is. (Rev 3:13)  “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.” ’ (Rev 3:14) “And to the messenger of the assembly in Laodikeia write, ‘The Amĕn, the Trustworthy and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of Elohim, 1 says this: Footnote: 1Col. 1:15, Hebrews. 1:6. (Rev 3:15) “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I would that you were cold or hot. (Rev 3:16)  “So, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I am going to vomit you out of my mouth. (Rev 3:17)  “Because you say, ‘Rich I am, and I am made rich, and need none at all,’ and do not know that you are wretched, and pitiable, and poor, and blind, and naked. (Rev 3:18)  I advise you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire,1 so that you become rich; and white garments, so that you become dressed, so that the shame of your nakedness might not be shown; and anoint your eyes with ointment, so that you see. Footnote: 1Ps. 19:10, Ps. 119:72 & 127, Prov. 30:5. (Rev 3:19)  “As many as I love, I reprove and discipline. So be ardent and repent. (Rev 3:20)  “See, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I shall come in to him and dine with him, and he with me. (Rev 3:21)  “To him who overcomes I shall give to sit with me on my throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. (Rev 3:22)  “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.” ’ ”

A bride who makes herself presentable to her groom, by an act of her will. This bride (You and I) will humble herself and submit to receive the engrafted word and change. She will DRAW EVER NEAR to her bridegroom. He changes not, loved one, so that leaves only us to determine if we will willingly change and become the bride. I realize we have all been falsely taught we will all be His bride that are born again spiritually by accepting Yahshua (Jesus) as Lord and Savior. We should consider that together. Do we really believe if we will not obey Him today that we will be trusted to be teachers, Kings and Priests in His Kingdom when He sets it up? That is absolutely unreasonable, would we trust someone who was always disobedient to help us rule and reign as Kings and Priests? FORGET IT! Never happen. He will use those who are obedient by willing choices as determined by His definition and words of those who really love Him.  (John 14:15)  If you love me, you shall guard (do) my commands.1 Footnote: 1See Ex. 20:6, vv. 21&23, 1 John 5:2-3, 2 John v. 6.  (John 14:21)  “He who possesses (Has) my commands and guards (does) 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.”

Okay, let’s look closer at who may become Kings and Priest to our Elohim and usable by Him:

(Rev 1:1)  Revelation of יהושע Messiah, which Elohim gave Him to show His servants what has to take place with speed. And He signified it by sending His messenger to His servant Yoḥanan, (Rev 1:2) who bore witness to the Word of Elohim, and the witness of יהושע Messiah – to all he saw. (Rev 1:3)  Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and guard what is written in it, for the time is near. (Rev 1:4)  Yoḥanan, to the seven assemblies that are in Asia: Favor to you and peace from Him who is and who was and who is coming, and from the seven Spirits that are before His throne, (Rev 1:5)  and from יהושע Messiah, the trustworthy witness, the first-born from the dead, and the ruler of the sovereigns of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, (Rev 1:6) and has made us sovereigns (Kings) and priests to His Elohim and Father, to Him be esteem and rule forever and ever. Amĕn. Did you take note that HIS SERVANTS WHO READ, UNDERSTAND AND DO HIS WORDS, and are washed in His blood are made Kings and Priests? Do we understand washed from sin? Sin is TRANSGRESSION AGAINST TORAH (Law) according to 1 John? (1Jn 3:4)  Everyone doing sin also does lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness (Torahlessness). (1Jn 3:5)  And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin. (1Jn 3:6)  Everyone staying in Him does not sin. Everyone sinning has neither seen Him nor known Him.1 Footnote: 1See 2:4 & 3 John v. 11. How could we even consider we would be a King and Priest if we say the LAW (TORAH) or Moses and the Prophets is done away with? Disobeying Moses and the Prophets IS DEFINED AS SIN!

(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 heaven 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)  “Whoever, then, breaks one of the least of these commands, and teaches men so, (Consider him or her Pastor or Minister LEAST) shall be called least in the reign of the heavens; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the reign of the heavens.

He NEVER allows us sitting in His Lawgivers SEAT- we are only allowed to bless those that curse us and pray for those that do all manner of evil against us. WE MUST FORGIVE or we will be Hell bound! (These are not options!) This does not mean they who have offended us deserve to be forgiven- it is an act of our vertical obedience to our loving Creator as we allow Him to be the judge- not us, since we are incapable and ill equipped to know another’s heart and motives.

(James 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. (James 4:5)  Or do you think that the Scripture speaks to no purpose? Does the Spirit which dwells in us intensely crave unto envy? (James 4:6)  But He gives greater favor. Because of this He says, “Elohim resists the proud, but gives favor to the humble.”

(James 4:7)  So then subject (Submit) 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. (James 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. (James 4:12)  There is one Lawgiver and Judge, who is able to save and to destroy. Who are you to judge another?

Okay let’s consider this our clean up time- just before the raging storms. Understand loved one, that we can wait until we stand before Him and have all our “good deeds” and self glorifying acts burned off as wood, hay, and stubble; or we can ask Him to clean us up now before we must stand in His Set Apart (Holy) Presence and be judged.

(Hebrews 12:1)  We too, then, having so great a cloud of witnesses all around us, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race set before us, (Hebrews 12:2) looking to the Princely Leader and Perfecter of our belief (Faith and trust), יהושע, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the stake, having despised the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of Elohim. (Hebrews 12:3)  For consider Him who endured such opposition from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and faint in your lives. (Hebrews 12:4)  You have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin. (Hebrews 12:5)  And you have forgotten the appeal which speaks to you as to sons, “My son, do not despise the discipline of יהוה, nor faint when you are reproved by Him, (Hebrews 12:6) for whom יהוה loves, He disciplines, and flogs every son whom He receives.”1 Footnote: 1Prov. 3:11-12. (Hebrews 12:7)  If you endure discipline, Elohim is treating you as sons. For what son is there whom a father does not discipline? (Hebrews 12:8)  But if you are without discipline, of which all have become sharers, then you are illegitimate and not sons. (Hebrews 12:9)  Moreover, we indeed had fathers of our flesh disciplining us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much rather be subject to the Father of spirits, and live? (Hebrews 12:10)  They indeed disciplined us for a few days as seemed best to them, but He does it for our profit, so that we might share His apartness. (Hebrews 12:11)  And indeed, no discipline seems pleasant at the time, but grievous, but afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.1 Footnote: 1Dt. 8:2. (Hebrews 12:12)  So, strengthen the hands which hang down and the weak knees, (Hebrews 12:13) and make straight paths for your feet, lest the lame be turned aside, but instead, to be healed. (Hebrews 12:14)  Pursue peace with all, and pursue apartness without which no one shall see the Master. (Hebrews 12:15)  See to it that no one falls short of the favor of Elohim, that no root of bitterness springing up causes trouble, by which many become defiled, (Hebrews 12:16)  lest there be anyone who whores, or profane one, like Ěsaw, who for a single meal sold his birthright. (Hebrews 12:17)  For you know that afterward, when he wished to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought it with tears.

Shaking and burning us is guaranteed by Scripture! This is what storms are allowed and sent for, removes all our chaff, pride, arrogance and self direction.

(Hebrews 12:18)  For you have not drawn near to a mountain touched and scorched with fire, and to blackness, and darkness and storm, (Hebrews 12:19)  and a sound of a trumpet, and a voice of words, so that those who heard it begged that no further Word should be spoken to them,1 Footnote: 1Ex. 20:19. (Hebrews 12:20) for they could not bear what was commanded, “If even a beast touches the mountain, it shall be stoned or shot through with an arrow.” (Hebrews 12:21)  And so fearsome was the sight that Mosheh said, “I exceedingly fear and tremble.” (Hebrews 12:22)  But you have drawn near to Mount Tsiyon and to the city of the living Elohim, to the heavenly Yerushalayim, to myriads of messengers,(Hebrews 12:23)  to the entire gathering and assembly of the first-born having been enrolled in heaven, and to Elohim the Judge of all, and to the spirits of righteous men made perfect (Matured), (Hebrews 12:24)  and to יהושע the Mediator1 of a new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling which speaks better than the blood of Heḇel. Footnote: 1See 8:6. (Hebrews 12:25)  Take heed not to refuse the One speaking. For if those did not escape who refused the warning on earth, much less we who turn away from Him from heaven, (Hebrews 12:26)  whose voice shook the earth then, but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also the heaven.” (Hebrews 12:27)  And this, “Yet once more,” makes clear the removal of what is shaken – as having been made – so that the unshaken matters might remain. (Hebrews 12:28)  Therefore, receiving an unshakeable reign, let us hold the favor, through which we serve Elohim pleasingly with reverence and awe, (Hebrews 12:29) for indeed, our Elohim is a consuming fire. Knowing that storms are guaranteed to come upon us as believers in and followers of Messiah Yahshua as hasatan comes against one people group (Remnant) that are identified by two traits; (Rev 12:17) And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to fight with the remnant of her seed, those guarding the commands of Elohim and possessing the witness of יהושע Messiah. We are thankful that we may become the REMNANT (Bride) by choices we make to receive Yahshua (Jesus) as King and Messiah and keep His commands- we will DRAW NEAR!

(James 4:7)  So then subject 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.

James 1:2 my brothers, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, James 1:3 knowing that the proving of your belief (Faith trust) works endurance. James 1:4 and let endurance have a perfect work, so that you be perfect and complete, lacking in naught. James 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. James 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. James 1:7 that man should not think that he shall receive whatever from the Master – James 1:8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

Here’s our winning strategy for the storms and fiery trials guaranteeing us becoming OVERCOMERS! Draw Near!

Hebrews 10:19 So, brothers, having boldness to enter into the Set-apart Place by the blood of יהושע, Hebrews 10:20 by a new and living way which He instituted for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, Hebrews 10:21 and having a High Priest over the House of Elohim, Hebrews 10:22 let us draw near with a true heart in completeness of belief, having our hearts sprinkled from a wicked conscience and our bodies washed with clean water. Hebrews 10:23 Let us hold fast the confession of our expectation without yielding, for He who promised is trustworthy. Hebrews 10:24 And let us be concerned for one another in order to stir up love and good works,1 Footnote: 1Mt. 16:27. Hebrews 10:25  not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging, and so much more as you see the Day coming near. Hebrews 10:26  For if we sin purposely after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a slaughter offering for sins;1 Hebrews 10:27 only fearsome anticipation of judgment, and a fierce fire which is about to consume the opponents Footnote: 1See also 6:6, Hebrews. 9:7, Num. 15:15-28. Hebrews 10:28 anyone who has disregarded the Torah of Mosheh dies without compassion on the witness of two or three witnesses. Hebrews 10:29  How much worse punishment do you think shall he deserve who has trampled the Son of Elohim underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was set apart as common, and insulted the Spirit of favor? Hebrews 10:30 for we know Him who has said, “Vengeance is Mine, I shall repay, says יהוה.” And again, “יהוה shall judge His people.” Hebrews 10:31 It is fearsome to fall into the hands of the living Elohim.  Loved One, this really reminds us that we will willingly fall upon Him (The Living Word) and die to our own person (ality) or the Word will fall on us and pulverize us- the choice today is ours. (Luke 20:17)  But He looked at them and said, “What then is this that has been written, ‘The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief corner-stone’? (Luke 20:18)  “Everyone who falls on that stone shall be broken, but on whomever it falls, he shall be pulverized.”

REMNANT BRIDE- let’s turn our hearts and minds to this week’s Torah Scriptures.

Here are this week’s Torah Scriptures: Mishpatim Ordinances/Judgments”

Exodus 21:1-24:18; Jeremiah 34:8-22; Jeremiah 33:25-6; Matthew 5:33-7:27

(Exodus 21:1)  “These are the right-rulings which you are to set before them: (Exodus 21:2)  “When you buy a Heḇrew servant, he serves six years, and in the seventh he goes out free, for naught. (Exodus 21:3)  “If he comes in by himself, he goes out by himself; if he comes in married, then his wife shall go out with him. (Exodus 21:4)  “If his master has given him a wife, and she has borne him sons or daughters, the wife and her children are her master’s, and he goes out by himself. (Exodus 21:5)  “And if the servant truly says, ‘I love my master, my wife, and my children, let me not go out free,’ (Exodus 21:6) then his master shall bring him before Elohim, and shall bring him to the door, or to the doorpost, and his master shall pierce his ear with an awl. And he shall serve him forever. (Exodus 21:7)  “And when a man sells his daughter to be a female servant, she does not go out as the male servants do. (Exodus 21:8)  “If she is displeasing in the eyes of her master who has engaged her to himself, then he shall let her be ransomed. He shall have no authority to sell her to a foreign people, because of him deceiving her. (Exodus 21:9)  “And if he has engaged her to his son, he is to do to her as is the right of daughters. (Exodus 21:10)  “If he takes another wife, her food, her covering, and her marriage rights are not to be diminished. (Exodus 21:11)  “And if he does not do these three for her, then she shall go out for naught, without silver. (Exodus 21:12)  “He who strikes a man so that he dies shall certainly be put to death. (Exodus 21:13)  “But if he did not lie in wait, but Elohim delivered him into his hand, then I shall appoint for you a place where he is to flee. (Exodus 21:14)  “But when a man acts presumptuously against his neighbor, to kill him by treachery, you are to take him even from my altar to die. (Exodus 21:15)  “And he who smites his father or his mother shall certainly be put to death. (Exodus 21:16)  “And he who kidnaps a man and sells him, or if he is found in his hand, shall certainly be put to death. (Exodus 21:17)  “And he who curses his father or his mother shall certainly be put to death. (Exodus 21:18)  “And when men strive together, and one smites the other with a stone or with his fist, and he does not die but is confined to his bed, (Exodus 21:19) if he rises again and walks about outside with his staff, then he who smote him shall be innocent. He only pays for lost time and sees to it that he is completely healed. (Exodus 21:20)  “And when a man smites his male or female servant with a rod, so that he dies under his hand, he shall certainly be punished. (Exodus 21:21)  “But if he remains alive a day or two, he is not punished; for he is his property. (Exodus 21:22)  “And when men strive and they shall smite a pregnant woman, and her children come out, yet there is no injury, he shall certainly be punished accordingly as the woman’s husband lays upon him. And he shall give through the judges. (Exodus 21:23)  “But if there is injury, then you shall give life for life, (Exodus 21:24) eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, (Exodus 21:25) burn for burn, wound for wound, lash for lash. (Exodus 21:26)  “And when a man smites the eye of his male or female servant, and destroys it, he is to let him go free for the sake of his eye. (Exodus 21:27)  “And if he knocks out the tooth of his male or female servant, he is to let him go free for the sake of his tooth. (Exodus 21:28)  “And when an ox gores a man or a woman to death, then the ox shall certainly be stoned, and its flesh is not eaten, and the owner of the ox is innocent. (Exodus 21:29)  “However, if the ox was previously in the habit of goring, and its owner has been warned, and he has not kept it confined, so that it has killed a man or a woman, the ox is stoned and its owner also is put to death. (Exodus 21:30)  “If a sin-covering is laid upon him, then he shall give the ransom of his life, whatever is laid on him. (Exodus 21:31)  “Whether it has gored a son or gored a daughter, according to this right-ruling it is done to him. (Exodus 21:32)  “If the ox gores a male or female servant, he is to give to their master thirty sheqels of silver, and the ox is stoned. (Exodus 21:33)  “And when a man opens a pit, or if a man digs a pit and does not cover it, and an ox or a donkey falls in it, (Exodus 21:34) the owner of the pit is to repay, he is to give silver to their owner, and the dead beast is his. (Exodus 21:35)  “And when the ox of a man smites the ox of his neighbor and it dies, then they shall sell the live ox and divide the silver from it, and also divide the dead ox. (Exodus 21:36)  “Or if it was known that the ox was previously in the habit of goring, and its owner has not kept it confined, he shall certainly repay ox for ox, while the dead beast is his.

Get far away from those that like Harry Potter!

(Exodus 22:1)  “When a man steals an ox or a sheep, and shall slaughter it or sell it, he repays five cattle for an ox and four sheep for a sheep. (Exodus 22:2)  “If the thief is found breaking in, and he is smitten so that he dies, there is no guilt for his bloodshed. (Exodus 22:3)  “If the sun has risen on him, there is guilt for his bloodshed, he shall certainly repay. If he has not the means, then he shall be sold for his theft. (Exodus 22:4)  “If the theft is indeed found alive in his hand, whether it is an ox or donkey or sheep, he repays double. (Exodus 22:5)  “When a man lets a field or vineyard be grazed bare, and let’s loose his livestock, and it feeds in another man’s field, he repays from the best of his own field and the best of his own vineyard. (Exodus 22:6)  “When fire breaks out and spreads to thorn bushes, so that stacked grain, or standing grain, or the field is consumed, he who kindled the fire shall certainly repay. (Exodus 22:7)  “When a man gives silver or goods to his neighbor; to guard; and it is stolen out of the man’s house, if the thief is found, he repays double. (Exodus 22:8)  “If the thief is not found, then the master of the house shall be brought before Elohim to see whether he has put his hand into his neighbor’s goods. (Exodus 22:9)  “For every matter of transgression, for ox, for donkey, for sheep, for garment, or for whatever is lost which another claims to be his, let the matter of them both come before Elohim. And whomever Elohim declares wrong repays double to his neighbor. (Exodus 22:10)  “When a man gives to his neighbor a donkey, or ox, or sheep, or any beast to watch over, and it dies, or is injured, or is driven away while no one is looking, (Exodus 22:11)  let an oath of יהוה be between them both, that he has not put his hand into his neighbor’s goods. And the owner of it shall accept that, and he does not repay. (Exodus 22:12)  “But if it is indeed stolen from him, he repays to its owner. (Exodus 22:13)  “If it is torn to pieces, then let him bring it for evidence, he does not repay what was torn. (Exodus 22:14)  “And when a man borrows from his neighbor, and it is injured or dies while the owner of it is not present, he shall certainly repay. (Exodus 22:15)  “But if its owner was with it, he does not repay. If it was hired, he is entitled to the hire. (Exodus 22:16)  “And when a man entices a maiden who is not engaged, and lies with her, he shall certainly pay the bride-price for her to be his wife. (Exodus 22:17)  “If her father absolutely refuses to give her to him, he pays according to the bride-price of maidens. (Exodus 22:18)  Do not allow a practiser of witchcraft to live. (Exodus 22:19)  “Anyone lying with a beast shall certainly be put to death. (Exodus 22:20)  “He who slaughters to a mighty one, except to יהוה only, is put under the ban. (Exodus 22:21)  “Do not tread down a sojourner or oppress him, for you were sojourners in the land of Mitsrayim. (Exodus 22:22)  “Do not afflict any widow or fatherless child. (Exodus 22:23)  “If you do afflict them at all – if they cry out to me at all, I shall certainly hear their cry, (Exodus 22:24) and my wrath shall burn and I shall slay you with the sword, your wives shall be widows and your children fatherless. (Exodus 22:25)  “If you do lend silver to any of my people, the poor among you, you are not to be like one that lends on interest to him. Do not lay interest on him. (Exodus 22:26)  “If you take your neighbor’s garment as a pledge at all, you are to return it to him before the sun goes down. (Exodus 22:27)  “For that is his only covering, it is his garment for his skin. What does he sleep in? And it shall be that when he cries to me, I shall hear, for I show favor. (Exodus 22:28)  “Do not revile Elohim, nor curse a ruler of your people. (Exodus 22:29)  “Do not delay giving your harvest and your vintage. Give me the first-born of your sons. (Exodus 22:30)  “Likewise you are to do with your oxen, with your sheep. It is to be with its mother seven days. On the eighth day you give it to me. (Exodus 22:31)  “And you are set-apart men to me, and you do not eat any meat which is torn to pieces in the field, you throw it to the dogs.

YHVH will be an enemy to our enemies IF we obey Him!

(Exodus 23:1)  “Do not bring a false report. Do not put your hand with the wrong to be a malicious witness. (Exodus 23:2)  “Do not follow a crowd to do evil, nor bear witness in strife so as to turn aside after many, to turn aside what is right. (Exodus 23:3)  “And do not favor a poor man in his strife. (Exodus 23:4)  “When you meet your enemy’s ox or his donkey going astray, you shall certainly return it to him. (Exodus 23:5)  “When you see the donkey of him who hates you lying under its burden, you shall refrain from leaving it to him, you shall certainly help him. (Exodus 23:6)  “Do not turn aside the right-ruling of your poor in his strife. (Exodus 23:7)  “Keep yourself far from a false matter, and do not kill the innocent and the righteous, for I do not declare the wrong right. (Exodus 23:8)  “And do not take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the seeing one and twists the words of the righteous. (Exodus 23:9)  “And do not oppress a sojourner, as you yourselves know the heart of a sojourner, because you were sojourners in the land of Mitsrayim. (Exodus 23:10)  “And for six years you are to sow your land, and shall gather its increase, (Exodus 23:11) but the seventh year you are to let it rest, and shall leave it, and the poor of your people shall eat. And what they leave, the beasts of the field eat. Do the same with your vineyard and your olive yard. (Exodus 23:12)  “Six days you are to do your work, and on the seventh day you rest, in order that your ox and your donkey might rest, and the son of your female servant and the sojourner be refreshed. (Exodus 23:13)  “And in all that I have said to you take heed. And make no mention of the name of other mighty ones, let it not be heard from your mouth. (Exodus 23:14)  Three1 times in the year you are to observe a festival to Me: Footnote: 1The Festivals of יהוה are grouped in three, for three different times of the year. (Exodus 23:15)  “Guard the Festival of Unleavened Bread. Seven days you eat unleavened bread, as I commanded you, at the time appointed in the month of Aḇiḇ – for in it you came out of Mitsrayim – and do not appear before me empty-handed; (Exodus 23:16) and the Festival of the Harvest, the first-fruits of your labors which you have sown in the field; and the Festival of the Ingathering at the outgoing of the year, when you have gathered in the fruit of your labors from the field. (Exodus 23:17)  “Three times in the year all your males are to appear before the Master יהוה. (Exodus 23:18)  “Do not offer the blood of my slaughtering with leavened bread, and the fat of my offering shall not remain until morning. (Exodus 23:19)  “Bring the first of the first-fruits of your land into the House of יהוה your Elohim. Do not cook a young goat in its mother’s milk. (Exodus 23:20)  “See, I am sending a Messenger before you to guard you in the way and to bring you into the place which I have prepared. (Exodus 23:21)  “Be on guard before Him and obey His voice. Do not rebel against Him, for He is not going to pardon your transgression, for My Name is in Him. (Exodus 23:22)  “But if you diligently obey His voice and shall do all that I speak, and then I shall be an enemy to your enemies and a distresser to those who distress you. (Exodus 23:23)  “For My Messenger shall go before you and shall bring you in to the Amorites and the Ḥittites and the Perizzites and the Kenaʽanites and the Ḥiwwites and the Yeḇusites, and I shall cut them off. (Exodus 23:24)  “Do not bow down to their mighty ones, nor serve them, nor do according to their works, but without fail overthrow them and without fail break down their pillars. (Exodus 23:25)  “And you shall serve יהוה your Elohim, and He shall bless your bread and your water. And I shall remove sickness from your midst. (Exodus 23:26)  “None shall miscarry or be barren in your land. I shall fill the number of your days. (Exodus 23:27)  “I shall send my fear before you, and cause confusion among all the people to whom you come, and make all your enemies turn their backs to you. (Exodus 23:28)  “And I shall send hornets before you, which shall drive out the Ḥiwwite, the Kenaʽanite, and the Ḥittite from before you. (Exodus 23:29)  “I shall not drive them out from before you in one year, lest the land become a waste and the beast of the field become too numerous for you. (Exodus 23:30)  “Little by little I shall drive them out from before you, until you have increased, and you inherit the land. (Exodus 23:31)  “And I shall set your border from the Sea of Reeds to the Sea of the Philistines, and from the wilderness to the River, for I shall give the inhabitants of the land into your hand, and you shall drive them out before you. (Exodus 23:32)  “Do not make a covenant with them nor with their mighty ones. (Exodus 23:33)  “Let them not dwell in your land, lest they make you sin against me when you serve their mighty ones, when it becomes a snare to you.” (Exodus 24:1)  And to Mosheh He said, “Come up to יהוה, you and Aharon, Naḏaḇ and Aḇihu, and seventy of the elders of Yisra’ĕl, and you shall bow yourselves from a distance. (Exodus 24:2)  “But Mosheh shall draw near to יהוה by himself, and let them not draw near, nor let the people go up with him.” (Exodus 24:3)  And Mosheh came and related to the people all the Words of יהוה and all the right-rulings. And all the people answered with one voice and said, “All the Words which יהוה has spoken we shall do.” (Exodus 24:4)  And Mosheh wrote down all the Words of יהוה, and rose up early in the morning, and built an altar at the foot of the mountain, and twelve standing columns for the twelve tribes of Yisra’ĕl. (Exodus 24:5)  And he sent young men of the children of Yisra’ĕl, and they offered burnt offerings and slaughtered peace slaughterings of bulls to יהוה. (Exodus 24:6)  And Mosheh took half the blood and put it in basins and half the blood he sprinkled on the altar. (Exodus 24:7)  And he took the Book of the Covenant and read in the hearing of the people. And they said, “All that יהוה has spoken we shall do, and obey.” (Exodus 24:8)  And Mosheh took the blood and sprinkled it on the people, and said, “See, the blood of the covenant which יהוה has made with you concerning all these Words.” (Exodus 24:9)  And Mosheh went up, also Aharon, Naḏaḇ, and Aḇihu, and seventy of the elders of Yisra’ĕl, (Exodus 24:10) and they saw the Elohim of Yisra’ĕl, and under His feet like a paved work of sapphire stone, and like the heavens for brightness. (Exodus 24:11)  Yet He did not stretch out His hand against the chiefs of the children of Yisra’ĕl! And they saw Elohim, and they ate and drank. (Exodus 24:12)  And יהוה said to Mosheh, “Come up to me on the mountain and be there, while I give you tablets of stone, and the Torah and the command which I have written, to teach them.” (Exodus 24:13)  And Mosheh arose with his assistant Yehoshua, and Mosheh went up to the mountain of Elohim. (Exodus 24:14)  And he said to the elders, “Wait here for us until we come back to you. And see, Aharon and Ḥur are with you. Whoever has matters, let him go to them.” (Exodus 24:15)  And Mosheh went up into the mountain, and a cloud covered the mountain. (Exodus 24:16)  And the esteem of יהוה dwelt on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it for six days. And on the seventh day He called to Mosheh out of the midst of the cloud. (Exodus 24:17)  And the appearance of the esteem of יהוה was like a consuming fire on the top of the mountain, before the eyes of the children of Yisra’ĕl. (Exodus 24:18)  And Mosheh went into the midst of the cloud and went up into the mountain. And it came to be that Mosheh was on the mountain forty days and forty nights.

Obedience for blessings or Disobedience for guaranteed CURSES- we choose wisely!

(Jeremiah 34:8)  The word which came to Yirmeyahu from יהוה, after Sovereign Tsiḏqiyahu had made a covenant with all the people who were at Yerushalayim to proclaim release to them: (Jeremiah 34:9) that everyone was to set free his male and female slave, the Heḇrew man and the Heḇrew woman, no one was to keep a Yehuḏite, his brother, enslaved. (Jeremiah 34:10)  And when all the heads and all the people who had come into the covenant heard that each one was to set free his male and female slaves, and not keep them enslaved any longer, they obeyed and released them. (Jeremiah 34:11)  But afterward they changed their minds and made the male and female slaves return, whom they had set free, and brought them into subjection as male and female slaves. (Jeremiah 34:12)  Therefore the word of יהוה came to Yirmeyahu from יהוה, saying, (Jeremiah 34:13) “Thus said יהוה the Elohim of Yisra’ĕl, ‘I Myself made a covenant with your fathers in the day that I brought them out of the land of Mitsrayim, out of the house of bondage, saying, (Jeremiah 34:14) “At the end of seven years each one should set free his Heḇrew brother, who has been sold to him. And when he has served you six years, you shall let him go free from you.” But your fathers did not obey me nor incline their ear. (Jeremiah 34:15)  ‘And you recently turned and did what was right in my eyes, each man proclaiming release to his neighbor. And you made a covenant before me in the house which is called by My Name. (Jeremiah 34:16)  ‘But you turned back and profaned My Name, and each one of you took back his male and female slaves, whom he had set free, at their pleasure, and brought them into subjection, to be your male and female slaves.’ (Jeremiah 34:17)  “Therefore said יהוה; ‘You have not obeyed me in proclaiming release, each one to his brother and each one to his neighbor. See, I am proclaiming release to you,’ declares יהוה, ‘to the sword, to the pestilence, and to the scarcity of food! And I shall make you a horror to all reigns of the earth. (Jeremiah 34:18)  ‘And I shall give the men who are transgressing my covenant, who have not established the words of the covenant which they made before me, when they cut the calf in two and passed between the parts of it: (Jeremiah 34:19) the heads of Yehuḏah, and the heads of Yerushalayim, the eunuchs, and the priests, and all the people of the land who passed between the parts of the calf. (Jeremiah 34:20)  ‘And I shall give them into the hand of their enemies and into the hand of those who seek their life. And their corpses shall be for food to the birds of the heavens and the beasts of the earth. (Jeremiah 34:21)  ‘And I shall give Tsiḏqiyahu sovereign of Yehuḏah and his heads into the hand of their enemies, and into the hand of those who seek their life, and into the hand of the sovereign of Baḇel’s army that has withdrawn from you. (Jeremiah 34:22)  ‘See, I am commanding,’ declares יהוה, ‘and shall bring them back to this city, and they shall fight against it and take it and burn it with fire. And I shall make the cities of Yehuḏah a ruin without inhabitant.’ ”

His Covenant guarantees us He will keep His Promises!

(Jeremiah 33:25)  “Thus said יהוה, ‘If my covenant is not with day and night, and if I have not appointed the laws of the heavens and earth, (Jeremiah 33:26) then I would also reject the descendants of Yaʽaqoḇ and Dawiḏ my servant, so that I should not take of his descendants to be rulers over the descendants of Aḇraham, Yitsḥaq, and Yaʽaqoḇ. For I shall turn back their captivity, and have compassion on them.’ ”

Note the difference between the Letter of the Torah (Law-Instructions) and the Spirit of the Torah (Law-Instructions) of the renewed better Covenant!

(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. (Mat 5:38)  “You heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth,’ (Mat 5:39) but I say to you, do not resist the wicked. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. (Mat 5:40)  “And he who wishes to sue you and take away your inner garment, let him have your outer garment as well. (Mat 5:41)  “And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two. (Mat 5:42)  “Give to him who asks of you, and from him who wishes to borrow from you, do not turn away. (Mat 5:43)  “You heard that it was said,1 ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ Footnote: 1Hate your enemy was “said,” not “written.” (Mat 5:44)  “But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those cursing you, do good to those hating you, and pray for those insulting you and persecuting you, (Mat 5:45)  so that you become sons of your Father in the heavens. Because He makes His sun rise on the wicked and on the good and sends rain on the righteous and on the unrighteous.1 Footnote: 1Lk. 6:35, Acts 14:16-17. (Mat 5:46)  “For if you love those loving you, what rewards have you? Are the tax collectors not doing the same too? (Mat 5:47)  “And if you greet your brothers only, what do you do more than others? Are the tax collectors not doing so too? (Mat 5:48)  Therefore, be perfect, 1 as your Father in the heavens is perfect. Footnote: 1Ex. 17:1, Ps. 119:1, 1 John 2:5, Hebrews. 6:1.

Religion wants to be seen- their reward is only from men-it is DUTY- but relationship is Desire!

(Mat 6:1)  “Beware of doing your kind deeds before men, in order to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in the heavens. (Mat 6:2)  “Thus, when you do a kind deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do, in the congregations and in the streets, to be praised by men. Truly, I say to you, they have their reward. (Mat 6:3)  “But when you do a kind deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, (Mat 6:4) so that your kind deed shall be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret shall Himself reward you openly. (Mat 6:5)  “And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the congregations and on the corners of the streets, to be seen by men. Truly, I say to you, they have their reward. (Mat 6:6)  “But you, when you pray, go into your room, and having shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place. And your Father who sees in secret shall reward you openly. (Mat 6:7)  “And when praying, do not keep on babbling like the gentiles. For they think that they shall be heard for their many words. (Mat 6:8)  “Therefore do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him. (Mat 6:9)  “This, then, is the way you should pray: ‘Our Father who is in the heavens, let Your Name be set-apart, (Mat 6:10) let your reign come, let your desire be done on earth as it is in heaven. (Mat 6:11)  Give us today our daily bread. (Mat 6:12)  And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. (Mat 6:13)  And do not lead us into trial, 1 but deliver us from the wicked one – because yours is the reign and the power and the esteem, forever. Amĕn.Footnote: 1See 26:41. (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. (Mat 6:16)  “When you fast; do not be sad-faced like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces so that they appear to be fasting to men. Truly, I say to you, they have their reward. (Mat 6:17)  “But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, (Mat 6:18) so that you do not appear to men to be fasting, but to your Father who is in the secret place. And your Father who sees in secret shall reward you openly. (Mat 6:19)  “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, (Mat 6:20)  but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. (Mat 6:21)  “For where your treasure is, there your heart shall be also. (Mat 6:22)  “The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, all your body shall be enlightened. (Mat 6:23)  “But if your eye is evil,1 all your body shall be darkened. If, then, the light that is within you is darkness, how great is that darkness! Footnote: 1This is a Heḇrew idiom – a good eye means to be generous, while an evil eye means to be stingy. (Mat 6:24)  “No one is able to serve two masters, for either he shall hate the one and love the other, or else he shall cleave to the one and despise the other. You are not able to serve Elohim and mammon.1 Footnote: 1Personification of wealth. (Mat 6:25)  “Because of this I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you shall eat or drink, or about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life more than the food and the body more than the clothing? (Mat 6:26)  “Look at the birds of the heaven, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into storehouses, yet your heavenly Father does feed them. Are you not worth more than they? (Mat 6:27)  “And which of you by worrying is able to add one cubit to his life’s span? (Mat 6:28)  “So why do you worry about clothing? Note well the lilies of the field, how they grow, they neither toil nor do spin, (Mat 6:29) and I say to you that even Shelomoh in all his esteem was not dressed like one of these. (Mat 6:30)  “But if Elohim so clothes the grass of the field, which exists today, and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, how much more you, O you of little belief? (Mat 6:31)  “Do not worry then, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ (Mat 6:32)  “For all these the gentiles seek for. And your heavenly Father knows that you need all these. (Mat 6:33)  “But seek first the reign of Elohim, and His righteousness, and all these matters shall be added to you. (Mat 6:34)  “Do not, then, worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow shall have its own worries. Each day has enough evil of itself.

We are not allowed to sit in the Lawgivers Judgment seat!

(Mat 7:1)  “Do not judge, lest you be judged. (Mat 7:2)  “For with what judgment you judge, you shall be judged. And with the same measure you use, it shall be measured to you. (Mat 7:3)  “And why do you look at the splinter in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the plank in your own eye? (Mat 7:4)  “Or how is it that you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the splinter out of your eye,’ and see, a plank is in your own eye? (Mat 7:5)  “You hypocrite, first remove the plank from your own eye, and then you shall see clearly to remove the splinter out of your brother’s eye! (Mat 7:6)  “Do not give what is set-apart to the dogs, nor throw your pearls before the pigs, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces. (Mat 7:7)  “Ask and it shall be given to you, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened to you. (Mat 7:8)  “Everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it shall be opened. (Mat 7:9)  “Or is there a man among you who, if his son asks for bread, shall give him a stone? (Mat 7:10)  “Or if he asks for a fish, shall he give him a snake? (Mat 7:11)  “If you then, being wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your Father who is in the heavens give what is good to those who ask Him! (Mat 7:12)  “Therefore, whatever you wish men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Torah and the Prophets. (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.

This Scripture below changed my life as on September 7, 1994 I hurled my Bible across 6 connected 8 foot solid maple tables in my Boardroom- screaming my disgust to YHVH and not even knowing what “laws” these below seemed to have broken and having done many wonderful works and miracles were seemingly cast toward hell’s flames! These seemed to be pretty strong Christians in my mind, and were doing the works I also was doing I thought! Note that the flood and storms is identical; however one has done the words of Yahshua- (who is the living TORAH- in the beginning was the Word and the word was with YHVH and the word was YHVH) and the other told to depart and as we see the floods and wind (Storm) came and washed away the house not built on the foundation of Moses and the Prophets which Yahshua tells us in Matthew 5:17 and onward that He did NOT DO AWAY, ABOLISH OR FINISH IT OUT as we still have a Heaven and Earth!

(Mat 7:20)  “So then, by their fruits you shall know them – (Mat 7:21) Not everyone who says to me, ‘Master, Master, (Lord-Lord) shall enter into the reign of the heavens, but he who is doing the desire 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. (Mat 7:24)  “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine, and does them, shall be like a wise man who built his house on the rock, (Mat 7:25)  and the rain came down, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. (Mat 7:26)  “And everyone who hears these words of Mine, and does not do them, 1 shall be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand, Footnote: 1John 3:36. (Mat 7:27) and the rain came down, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and they beat on that house, and it fell, and great was its fall.”

You are much loved, Loved One. My prayer for you is that you become an overcomer in Messiah Yahshua. Further, that you speak His words continually; before, during and after the storms. That you and all your loved ones produce much fruit that remains which glorifies our Heavenly Father and Creator. Finally, I pray you and your loved ones are made worthy (Yes even through the storms and fiery trials) to escape all these things (storms and tests) that are coming on the whole earth to test the earth (And bride) and STAND at His appearing (LAST Trump) unashamed having really produced fruit with your life’s actions. That you and I become doers of the word and not hearers only deceiving ourselves and that you and I stand at His appearing unashamed! Of course this is not a pre-tribulation rapture as we will be used to produce fruit for His Kingdom even unto death! Our goal is to remain and not be taken first- we want to be LEFT BEHIND as the tares are taken first and thrown into the fire! Thanks for your prayers for me and my loved ones also- they are much needed and appreciated!

Shalom to your home Loved One,
