Loved one, the Feast of Trumpets was by most/many reckonings Thursday (9-29) at sundown! Hallelu-Yah!  This means for planning purposes the Day of Atonement (Commonly called Judgment Day by many Christians in regard to the final one) also known as Yom Kippur will be the 10th day counting from Thursday evening at sundown. If I am counting correctly that would make Day of Atonement on the evening of the 9th and all day the 10th of October and Feast of Tabernacles starting on the evening of the 14th- however; since most Feasts have to be planned way in advance to allow for availability and planning- many will start on the 12th of October- which is certainly okay as we are not back in Jerusalem and “KEEPING THE FEASTS” we are only still scattered and practicing obedience best we can. The GOOD NEWS is that we will soon all be back in Jerusalem KEEPING THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES! Hehe

(Zechariah 14:16)  And it shall be that all who are left from all the gentiles which came up against Yerushalayim, shall go up from year to year to bow themselves to the Sovereign, יהוה of hosts, and to observe the Festival of Booths (Tabernacles). (Zechariah 14:17)  And it shall be, that if anyone of the clans of the earth does not come up to Yerushalayim to bow himself to the Sovereign (King), יהוה of hosts, on them there is to be no rain.

Above is during the Millennium reign of Yahshua (Jesus) loved one, so I expect that is a good enough reason for Truth Searchers like us to start learning obedience in “Keeping the Feasts!”
Here is the Hebrew idiom the Day that no man knows the day or the hour! (Feast of Trumpets)

(Numbers 29:1)  And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you have a set-apart gathering, you do no servile work, it is a day of blowing the trumpets for you. (Numbers 29:2)  ‘And you shall prepare a burnt offering as a sweet fragrance to יהוה: one young bull, one ram, seven lambs a year old, perfect ones, (Numbers 29:3)  and their grain offering: fine flour mixed with oil, three-tenths of an ĕphah for the bull, two-tenths for the ram, (Numbers 29:4) and one-tenth for each of the seven lambs, (Numbers 29:5)  and one male goat as a sin offering, to make atonement for you, (Numbers 29:6)  besides the burnt offering with its grain offering for the New Moon, the continual burnt offering with its grain offering, and their drink offerings, according to their right-ruling, as a sweet fragrance, an offering made by fire to יהוה. (Numbers 29:7)  And on the tenth day of this seventh month you have a set-apart gathering, and you shall afflict your beings, you do no work. (Atonement- Yom Kippur)

Here again is the Scripture about intimacy I was shown and its intended results for us; (John 15:1) “I am the true vine, and My Father is the gardener. (John 15:2)  “Every branch in me that bears no fruit He takes away. And every branch that bears fruit He prunes, so that it bears more fruit. (John 15:3)  “You are already clean because of the Word which I have spoken to you. (John 15:4)  “Stay (remain; abide) in me, and I stay (remain; abide) in you. The branch is unable to bear fruit of itself unless it stays in the vine; so neither you, unless you stay in me. (John 15:5) “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who stays (remains; abides) in me, and I in him, he bears much fruit. Because without me you are able to do naught! (John 15:6)  “If anyone does not stay (remain; abide) in me, he is thrown away as a branch and dries up. And they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. (John 15:7)  “If you stay (remain; abide) in me, and my Words stay (remain; abide) in you, you shall ask whatever you wish, and it shall be done for you. (John 15:8)  “In this My Father is esteemed, that you bear much fruit, and you shall be my taught ones. (John 15:9)  “As the Father has loved me, I have also loved you. Stay (remain; abide) in my love. (John 15:10)  If you guard my commands, you shall stay (remain; abide) in my love, 1 even as I have guarded My Father’s commands and stay (remain; abide) in His love. Footnote: 1See 14:15. (John 15:11)  “These words I have spoken to you, so that my joy might be in you, and that your joy might be complete.

We must have the power to remain in Him, the TRUE VINE. (1) His words must stay in us- we are not allowed to speak facts of the storm or evil report- we must agree with Yahshua; (2) We must stay in Him by obeying Him and His commands- we are not allowed to stay in pagan rituals and evil habits/works- it is called REPENT! (3) We are not allowed to NOT forgive others as there is only one Torah (Law) giver and one Judge- if we do not obey and forgive others whether they deserve forgiveness or not, we will not be forgiven- period. Ummmm- that means we will have failed and be destined to HELL loved one! Not an optimal forever destination.  This is HOW we are commanded to pray:

(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.

Bless and Do Not Curse- remember- we are not allowed to sit on the Judgment Seat!

(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)  “If you love those loving you, what reward do you have? Are the tax collectors not doing the same too?

(Luke 6:26)  Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! In the same manner did their fathers to the false prophets. (Luke 6:27)  But I say unto you that hear, love your enemies, do good to them that hate you, (Luke 6:28) bless them that curse you, pray for them that despitefully use you. Obedience here breaks hasatan’s cycle of curse off them and us!

Loved One- we need to take stock of what is happening around the world. Freedom is only given and retained by those who remain dependent (Obedient) on and to YHWH Almighty. The watchmen seem to be sounding their trumpets around the world to wake up the Body of Messiah, but much of His body is sound asleep and despises the watchmen; so our question should be, are we also asleep? Have our erroneous preconceived perceptions and extra-biblical traditions taught by much of this last day’s Laodicean church system around the world- left us unaware of YHWH’s planned judgment on a disobedient people? Remember- YHWH judges His “church” first who claim to love Him but worship Him in VAIN; teaching as His doctrines the commandments of men (extra-biblical traditions). He warned us; “DO NOT learn the ways of the heathens” and say we are worshipping (Obeying) Him! (Amos 3:6)  If a Trumpet (ram’s horn) is blown in a city, do the people not tremble? If there is calamity in a city, shall not יהוה have done it? (Amos 3:7)  For the Master יהוה (Yahshua) does no matter unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets. (Amos 3:8)  A lion has roared! Who is not afraid? The Master יהוה has spoken! Who would not prophesy? (Luke 17:26)  And as it came to be in the days of Noaḥ, so also shall it be in the days of the (coming of) Son of Aḏam: (Yahshua) (Luke 17:27) “They were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noaḥ went into the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. (Luke 17:28)  “And likewise, as it came to be in the days of Lot: They were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building, (Luke 17:29) but on the day Lot went out of Seḏom it rained fire and sulphur from heaven and destroyed all. 

There is judgment at the door- for even the righteous who disobey YHWH!

Let’s look at our example given us as judgment on Korah and even falls on Miriam, Aaron and even Moses for their rebellions and none of them got to enter the Promised Land: (Numbers 26:9) And the sons of Eliyaḇ: Nemu’ĕl, and Dathan, and Aḇiram. This Dathan and Aḇiram, were the called ones of the congregation, who contended against Mosheh and against Aharon in the company of Qoraḥ (Korah), when they contended against יהוה, (Numbers 26:10)  and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them up together with Qoraḥ when that company died, when the fire consumed two hundred and fifty men. And they became a sign, (Judgment on a rebellious people)  

Are we also rebelling with our tongues? Let’s Obey and speak a GOOD REPORT! (Numbers 27:22)  And Mosheh did as יהוה commanded him, and took Yehoshua and set him before Elʽazar the priest and before the entire congregation, (Numbers 27:23) and laid his hands on him and commissioned him, as יהוה commanded by the hand of Mosheh. (Numbers 26:65) יהוה had said of them, “They shall certainly die in the wilderness.” And not a man was left of them, except Kalĕḇ son of Yephunneh, and Yehoshua son of Nun. (The two spies with a good report and confession that agrees with YHWH- NOT the facts reporting were all that entered the Promises!) We bless and curse not- that allows Yahshua to reign in us-

When we return curse for a curse we are allowing hasatan to reign in our lives! He will do harm to us and all our loved ones- make us absolutely miserable, we are allowing demonic hordes against us free access- let’s consider carefully our words spoken or written about others- YHWH is not mocked – He can and will repay if we stay stubborn hearted loved one. We must return a blessing or at least remain silent. YHWH is quite capable of sitting in the Judgment Seat as He alone knows the actions, intents and purposes of the heart! With those strong reminders of what we are to report in the storm; let’s turn our hearts and minds to this week’s Torah Study and Scriptures!

Here are this week’s Torah Scriptures: Shemeni “Eighth”

Leviticus 9:1- 11:47; 2nd Samuel 6:1-7:17; Acts 10:1-48 (Extended)

(Lev 9:1)  And on the eighth day it came to be that Mosheh called Aharon and his sons and the elders of Yisra’ĕl. (Lev 9:2)  And he said to Aharon, “Take for yourself a young bull as a sin offering and a ram as a burnt offering, a perfect one, and bring them before יהוה. (Lev 9:3)  “And speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, saying, ‘Take a male goat as a sin offering, and a calf and a lamb, both a year old, perfect ones, as a burnt offering, (Lev 9:4)  and a bull and a ram as peace offerings, to slaughter before יהוה, and a grain offering mixed with oil. For today יהוה shall appear to you.’ ” (Lev 9:5)  And they took what Mosheh commanded before the Tent of Meeting, and all the congregation drew near and stood before יהוה. (Lev 9:6)  And Mosheh said, “This is the word which יהוה commanded you to do, so that the esteem of יהוה appears to you.” (Lev 9:7)  And Mosheh said to Aharon, “Go to the altar, and prepare your sin offering and your burnt offering, and make atonement for yourself and for the people. And make the offering of the people, and make atonement for them, as יהוה has commanded.” (Lev 9:8)  So Aharon came near to the altar and slaughtered the calf of the sin offering, which was for him. (Lev 9:9)  And the sons of Aharon brought the blood to him, and he dipped his finger in the blood, and put it on the horns of the altar, and poured the blood at the base of the altar. (Lev 9:10)  And the fat, and the kidneys, and the appendage on the liver of the sin offering he burned on the altar, as יהוה had commanded Mosheh. (Lev 9:11)  And the flesh and the skin he burned with fire outside the camp. (Lev 9:12)  And he slaughtered the burnt offering, and the sons of Aharon presented to him the blood, which he sprinkled on the altar all around. (Lev 9:13)  And they presented the burnt offering to him, with its pieces and head, and he burned them on the altar. (Lev 9:14)  And he washed the entrails and the legs, and burned them with the burnt offering on the altar. (Lev 9:15)  And he brought the people’s offering, and took the goat, which was the sin offering for the people, and slaughtered it and made it a sin offering, like the first one. (Lev 9:16)  And he brought the burnt offering and made it, according to the right-ruling. (Lev 9:17)  He also brought the grain offering, and filled his hand with it, and burned it on the altar, besides the burnt offering of the morning. (Lev 9:18)  And he slaughtered the bull and the ram as peace offerings, which were for the people. And Aharon’s sons presented to him the blood, which he sprinkled on the altar all around, (Lev 9:19) and the fat from the bull and the ram, the fat tail, and the covering, and the kidneys, and the appendage on the liver, (Lev 9:20) and they placed the fat on the breasts, and he burned the fat on the altar. (Lev 9:21)  But the breasts and the right thigh Aharon waved as a wave offering before יהוה, as Mosheh had commanded. (Lev 9:22)  Aharon then lifted up his hand toward the people and blessed them, and came down from making the sin offering, and the burnt offering, and the peace offerings. (Lev 9:23)  And Mosheh and Aharon went into the Tent of Meeting, and came out and blessed the people. And the esteem of יהוה appeared to all the people, (Lev 9:24) and fire came out from before יהוה and consumed the burnt offering and the fat on the altar. And all the people saw and cried aloud and fell on their faces.

Follow His commands don’t make up our own! Don’t even grieve for those punished for that!

(Lev 10:1)  And Naḏaḇ and Aḇihu, the sons of Aharon, each took his fire holder and put fire in it, and put incense on it, and brought strange fire before יהוה, which He had not commanded them. (Lev 10:2)  And fire came out from יהוה and consumed them, and they died before יהוה. (Lev 10:3)  Then Mosheh said to Aharon, “This is what יהוה spoke, saying, ‘By those who come near me let me be set-apart! And before all the people let me be esteemed!’ ” And Aharon was silent. (Lev 10:4)  And Mosheh called to Misha’ĕl and to Eltsaphan, the sons of Uzzi’ĕl the uncle of Aharon, and said to them, “Come near; take your brothers from before the set-apart place out of the camp.” (Lev 10:5)  So they came near and took them by their long shirts out of the camp, as Mosheh had said. (Lev 10:6)  And Mosheh said to Aharon, and to Elʽazar and to Ithamar, his sons “Do not unbind your heads nor tear your garments, lest you die, and wrath comes upon all the people. But let your brothers, all the house of Yisra’ĕl, bewail the burning which יהוה has kindled. (Lev 10:7)  “And do not go out from the door of the Tent of Meeting, lest you die, for the anointing oil of יהוה is upon you.” And they did according to the word of Mosheh. (Lev 10:8)  And יהוה spoke to Aharon, saying, (Lev 10:9)  “Do not drink wine or strong drink, you, nor your sons with you, when you go into the Tent of Meeting, lest you die – a law forever throughout your generations, (Lev 10:10)  so as to make a distinction between the set-apart and the profane, and between the unclean and the clean, (Lev 10:11)  and to teach the children of Yisra’ĕl all the laws which יהוה has spoken to them by the hand of Mosheh.” (Lev 10:12)  And Mosheh spoke to Aharon, and to Elʽazar and Ithamar, his sons who were left, “Take the grain offering that is left over from the offerings made by fire to יהוה, and eat it without leaven beside the altar, for it is most set-apart. (Lev 10:13)  “And you shall eat it in a set-apart place, because it is yours by law and your sons’ by law, of the offerings made by fire to יהוה, for so I have been commanded. (Lev 10:14)  “And the breast of the wave offering and the thigh of the contribution you eat in a clean place, you, and your sons, and your daughters with you. For they are yours by law and your sons’ by law, which are given from the slaughtering’s of peace offerings of the children of Yisra’ĕl. (Lev 10:15)  “The thigh of the contribution and the breast of the wave offering they bring with the offerings of fat made by fire, to bring as a wave offering before יהוה. And it shall be yours and your sons’ with you, by a law forever, as יהוה has commanded.” (Lev 10:16)  And Mosheh diligently looked for the goat of the sin offering and saw it was burned up. And he was wroth with Elʽazar and Ithamar, the sons of Aharon who were left, saying, (Lev 10:17)  “Why have you not eaten the sin offering in a set-apart place, since it is most set-apart, and Elohim has given it to you to bear the crookedness of the congregation, to make atonement for them before יהוה?
(Lev 10:18)  “See, its blood was not brought inside the set-apart place. You should have eaten it without fail in a set-apart place, as I have commanded.” (Lev 10:19)  And Aharon said to Mosheh, “See, today they have brought their sin offering and their burnt offering before יהוה, and matters like these have come to me! If I had eaten the sin offering today, would it have been right in the eyes of יהוה?” (Lev 10:20)  And when Mosheh heard that, it was good in his eyes.

Food and that not defined as food by YHWH’s word! Not everything is set apart by the word and prayer- it is His word that sets apart and sanctifies and all our praying against His word won’t overrule His word and make it clean! (1Ti 4:4)  Because every creature of Elohim is good, and none is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, (1Ti 4:5) for it is set apart by the Word of Elohim and prayer.

(Lev 11:1)  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh and to Aharon, saying to them, (Lev 11:2) “Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, saying, ‘these are the living creatures which you do eat among all the beasts that are on the earth: (Lev 11:3)Whatever has a split hoof completely divided, chewing the cud, among the beasts, that you do eat. (Lev 11:4)  Only, these you do not eat among those that chew the cud or those that have a split hoof: the camel, because it chews the cud but does not have a split hoof, it is unclean to you; (Lev 11:5)  and the rabbit, because it chews the cud but does not have a split hoof, it is unclean to you; (Lev 11:6)  and the hare, because it chews the cud but does not have a split hoof, it is unclean to you; (Lev 11:7)  and the pig, though it has a split hoof, completely divided, yet does not chew the cud, it is unclean to you. (Lev 11:8)  Their flesh you do not eat, and their carcasses you do not touch. They are unclean to you. (Lev 11:9)  ‘These you do eat of all that are in the waters: any one that has fins and scales in the waters, in the seas or in the rivers that you do eat. (Lev 11:10)  ‘But all that have not fins and scales in the seas and in the rivers all that move in the waters or any living creature which is in the waters; they are an abomination to you. (Lev 11:11)  ‘They are an abomination to you – of their flesh you do not eat, and their carcasses you abominate. (Lev 11:12)  ‘All that have not fins or scales in the waters are an abomination to you. (Lev 11:13)  ‘And these you do abominate among the birds, they are not eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, and the vulture, and the black vulture, (Lev 11:14)  and the hawk, and the falcon after its kind, (Lev 11:15)  every raven after its kind, (Lev 11:16)  and the ostrich, and the nighthawk, and the seagull, and the hawk after its kind, (Lev 11:17)  and the little owl, and the fisher owl, and the great owl, (Lev 11:18)  and the white owl, and the pelican, and the carrion vulture, (Lev 11:19)  and the stork, the heron after its kind, and the hoopoe, and the bat. (Lev 11:20)  ‘All flying insects that creep on all fours is an abomination to you. (Lev 11:21)  ‘Only, these you do eat of every flying insect that creeps on all fours: those which have jointed legs above their feet with which to leap on the earth. (Lev 11:22)  These of them you do eat: the locust after its kind and the destroying locust after its kind and the cricket after its kind and the grasshopper after its kind. (Lev 11:23)  But all other flying insects which have four feet is an abomination to you. (Lev 11:24)  ‘And by these you are made unclean, anyone touching the carcass of any of them is unclean until evening, (Lev 11:25) and anyone picking up part of the carcass of any of them has to wash his garments, and shall be unclean until evening. (Lev 11:26)  Every beast that has a split hoof not completely divided, or does not chew the cud, is unclean to you. Anyone who touches their carcass is unclean. (Lev 11:27)  And whatever goes on its paws, among all the creatures that go on all fours, those are unclean to you. Anyone who touches their carcass is unclean until evening, (Lev 11:28) and he who picks up their carcass has to wash his garments, and shall be unclean until evening. They are unclean to you. (Lev 11:29)  And these are unclean to you among the creeping creatures that creep on the earth: the mole, and the mouse, and the tortoise after its kind, (Lev 11:30) and the gecko, and the land crocodile, and the sand reptile, and the sand lizard, and the chameleon. (Lev 11:31)  ‘These are unclean to you among all that creep. Anyone who touches them when they are dead becomes unclean until evening. (Lev 11:32)  ‘And whatever any of them in its dead state falls upon, becomes unclean, whether it is any wooden object or garment or skin or sack, any object in which work is done, it is put in water. And it shall be unclean until evening, and then it shall be clean. (Lev 11:33)  ‘Any earthen vessel into which any of them falls, whatever is in it becomes unclean, and you break it. (Lev 11:34)  ‘Any of the food which might be eaten, on which water comes, becomes unclean, and any drink which might be drunk from it becomes unclean.

Handling Dead Things! Do not eat creeping things!

(Lev 11:35)  ‘And on whatever any of their carcass falls becomes unclean – an oven or cooking range – it is broken down. They are unclean, and are unclean to you. (Lev 11:36)  ‘But a fountain or a well, a collection of water, is clean, but whatever touches their carcass is unclean. (Lev 11:37)  ‘And when any of their carcasses falls on any planting seed which is to be sown, it is clean. (Lev 11:38)  ‘But when any water is put on the seed and any part of any such carcass falls on it, it is unclean to you. (Lev 11:39)  ‘And when any of the beasts which are yours for food dies, he who touches its carcass becomes unclean until evening. (Lev 11:40)  ‘And he who eats of its carcass has to wash his garments, and shall be unclean until evening. And he who picks up its carcass has to wash his garments, and shall be unclean until evening. (Lev 11:41)  And every creeping creature that creeps on the earth is an abomination, it is not eaten. (Lev 11:42)  ‘Whatever crawls on its stomach, and whatever goes on all fours, and whatever has many feet among all creeping creatures that creep on the earth, these you do not eat, for they are an abomination. (Lev 11:43)  ‘Do not make yourselves abominable with any creeping creature that creeps, and do not make yourselves unclean with them, lest you be defiled by them. (Lev 11:44)  For I am יהוה your Elohim and you shall set yourselves apart. And you shall be set-apart, for I am set-apart. And do not defile yourselves with any creeping creature that creeps on the earth. (Lev 11:45)  ‘I am יהוה who is bringing you up out of the land of Mitsrayim, to be your Elohim. And you shall be set-apart, for I am set-apart. (Lev 11:46)  ‘This is the Torah of the beasts and the birds and every living creature that moves in the waters, and of every creature that creeps on the earth, (Lev 11:47) to make a distinction between the unclean and the clean, and between the living creature that is eaten and the living creature that is not eaten.’ ”

Desiring the Presence of YHWH!

(2Sam 6:1) Now Dawiḏ again gathered all the chosen men of Yisra’ĕl, thirty thousand. (2Sa 6:2)  And Dawiḏ rose up and went with all the people who were with him from Baʽalĕ Yehuḏah, to bring up from there the ark of Elohim, that is called by the Name, the Name יהוה of Hosts, who dwells between the keruḇim. (2Sa 6:3)  And they placed the ark of Elohim on a new wagon, and brought it from the house of Aḇinaḏaḇ, which was on the hill. And Uzzah and Aḥyo, sons of Aḇinaḏaḇ, were leading the new wagon. (2Sa 6:4)  And they brought it from the house of Aḇinaḏaḇ, which was on the hill, with the ark of Elohim. And Aḥyo was walking before the ark.

Sometimes in the midst of our worship; storms are sent to “cool” us down by the enemy- we may be tested and found wanting! (We judge ourselves- Listen and Obey- we will be judged!)

(2Sa 6:5)  And Dawiḏ and all the house of Yisra’ĕl were dancing before יהוה, with all instruments of fir wood, and with lyres, and with harps, and with tambourines, and with sistrums, and with cymbals. (2Sa 6:6)  And when they came to the threshing-floor of Naḵon, Uzzah reached out toward the ark of Elohim and took hold of it, for the oxen stumbled (Storm/test). (2Sa 6:7)  And the wrath of יהוה burned against Uzzah, and Elohim smote him there for the fault (Judgment). And he died there by the ark of Elohim. (2Sa 6:8)  And Dawiḏ was displeased because יהוה had broken out against Uzzah. And he called the name of the place Perets Uzzah, until this day. (2Sa 6:9)  And Dawiḏ was afraid of יהוה on that day, and said, “How shall the ark of יהוה come to me?” (2Sa 6:10)  And Dawiḏ would not move the ark of יהוה with him into the City of Dawiḏ, but Dawiḏ turned it aside to the house of Oḇĕḏ-Eḏom the Gittite. (2Sa 6:11)  And the ark of יהוה remained in the house of Oḇĕḏ-Eḏom the Gittite three months, and יהוה blessed Oḇĕḏ-Eḏom and his entire house. (2Sa 6:12)  And it was reported to Sovereign Dawiḏ, saying, “יהוה has blessed the house of Oḇĕḏ-Eḏom and all that he has, because of the ark of Elohim.” Dawiḏ then went and brought up the ark of Elohim from the house of Oḇĕḏ-Eḏom to the City of Dawiḏ with rejoicing. (2Sa 6:13)  And it came to be, when those bearing the ark of יהוה had gone six steps, that he slaughtered bulls and fattened sheep. (2Sa 6:14)  And Dawiḏ danced before יהוה with all his might. And Dawiḏ was wearing a linen shoulder garment. (2Sa 6:15)  Thus Dawiḏ and all the house of Yisra’ĕl brought up the ark of יהוה with shouting and with the sound of the ram’s horn. (2Sa 6:16)  And it came to be, when the ark of יהוה came into the City of Dawiḏ, that Miḵal, daughter of Sha’ul, looked through a window and saw Sovereign Dawiḏ leaping and dancing before יהוה, and she despised him in her heart. (2Sa 6:17)  So they brought the ark of יהוה in, and set it in its place in the midst of the Tent that Dawiḏ had pitched for it. And Dawiḏ brought burnt offerings before יהוה, and peace offerings. (2Sa 6:18)  And when Dawiḏ had finished bringing burnt offerings and peace offerings, he blessed the people in the Name of יהוה of hosts. (2Sa 6:19)  And he apportioned to all the people, to all the crowd of Yisra’ĕl, from man even to women, to each one a loaf of bread, and a measure, and a cake of raisins. And all the people left, each one to his house. (2Sa 6:20)  And Dawiḏ returned to bless his household, and Miḵal the daughter of Sha’ul came out to meet Dawiḏ, and said (Mocking the anointed worshiper of YHWH), “How esteemed was the sovereign of Yisra’ĕl today, uncovering himself today in the eyes of the female servants of his servants, as one of the foolish ones shamelessly uncovers himself!” (2Sa 6:21)  So Dawiḏ said to Miḵal, “Before יהוה, who chose me instead of your father and his entire house, to appoint me ruler over the people of יהוה, over Yisra’ĕl, so I danced before יהוה. (2Sa 6:22)  And I shall be even slighter than this, and shall be humble in my own eyes. But as for the female servants of whom you have spoken, by them I am esteemed.” (2Sa 6:23)  And Miḵal the daughter of Sha’ul had no children to the day of her death.

Building the dwelling place for YHWH (Now our hearts)

(2Sa 7:1) and it came to be when the sovereign was dwelling in his house, and יהוה had given him rest from all his enemies all around, (2Sa 7:2)  that the sovereign said to Nathan the prophet, “See now, I am dwelling in a house of cedar, but the ark of Elohim dwells within curtains.” (2Sa 7:3)  And Nathan said to the sovereign, “Go, do all that is in your heart, for יהוה is with you.” (2Sa 7:4)  And it came to be that night that the word of יהוה came to Nathan, saying, (2Sa 7:5) “Go and say to my servant Dawiḏ, ‘Thus said יהוה, “Would you build a house for Me to dwell in? (2Sa 7:6)  “For I have not dwelt in a house since the time that I brought the children of Yisra’ĕl up from Mitsrayim, even to this day, but have moved about in a Tent and in a Dwelling Place. (2Sa 7:7)  “Wherever I have walked with all the children of Yisra’ĕl, have I ever spoken a word to anyone from the tribes of Yisra’ĕl, whom I commanded to shepherd my people Yisra’ĕl, saying, ‘Why have you not built me a house of cedar?’ ” ’ (2Sa 7:8) “And now, say to my servant Dawiḏ, ‘Thus said יהוה of hosts, “I took you from the pasture, from following the flock, to be ruler over my people, over Yisra’ĕl. (2Sa 7:9)  “And I have been with you wherever you have gone, and have cut off all your enemies from before you, and have made you a great name, like the name of the great ones who are on the earth. (2Sa 7:10)  “And I shall appoint a place for my people Yisra’ĕl, and shall plant them, and they shall dwell in a place of their own and no longer be afraid, neither shall the children of wickedness oppress them again, as at the first, (2Sa 7:11) even from the day I appointed rulers over my people Yisra’ĕl, and have caused you to rest from all your enemies. And יהוה has declared to you that He would make you a house. (2Sa 7:12)  “When your days are filled and you rest with your fathers, I shall raise up your seed after you, who comes from your inward parts, and shall establish his reign. (2Sa 7:13)  “He does build a house for My Name, and I shall establish the throne of his reign forever. (2Sa 7:14)  “I am to be his Father, and he is my son. If he does perversely, I shall reprove him with the rod of men and with the blows of the sons of men. (2Sa 7:15)  “But my kindness does not turn aside from him, as I turned it aside from Sha’ul, whom I removed from before you. (2Sa 7:16)  And your house and your reign are to be steadfast forever before you – your throne is established forever.” ’ ” (2Sa 7:17) According to all these words; and according to all this vision; Nathan spoke to Dawiḏ. 

Note the vision in Acts 10 below was not saying it is okay to eat unclean food- YHWH was instructing that men were not unclean that He had cleaned! Note also that this is the Mikveh of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) which alone allows us to be witnesses and produce fruit that remains! (Act 1:4)  And meeting with them, He commanded them not to leave Yerushalayim, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, 1 “which you have heard from me – Footnote: 1Lk. 24:49, John 14:16 & 26. (Act 1:5) because Yoḥanan truly immersed in water, but you shall be immersed in the Set-apart Spirit not many days from now.” (Act 1:6)  So when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Master, would you at this time restore the reign to Yisra’ĕl?”1 Footnote: 1Lk. 1:33. (Act 1:7)  And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. (Act 1:8)  “But you shall receive power when the Set-apart Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be my witnesses in Yerushalayim, and in all Yehuḏah and Shomeron, and to the end of the earth.”

Kind Deeds and fearing YHWH allow the Ruach HaKodesh to be given!

(Act 10:1)  Now there was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a captain of what was called the Italian Regiment, (Act 10:2)  dedicated, and fearing Elohim with all his household, doing many kind deeds to the people, and praying to Elohim always. (Act 10:3)  He clearly saw in a vision, about the ninth hour of the day, a messenger of Elohim coming to him, and saying to him, “Cornelius!” (Act 10:4)  And looking intently at him, and becoming afraid, he said, “What is it, master?” And he said to him, “Your prayers and your kind deeds have come up for a remembrance before Elohim. (Act 10:5)  “And now send men to Yapho, and send for Shimʽon who is also called Kĕpha. (Act 10:6)  “He is staying with Shimʽon, a leather-tanner, whose house is by the sea.” (Act 10:7)  And when the messenger who spoke to him went away, Cornelius called two of his household servants, and a dedicated soldier from among those who waited on him continually. (Act 10:8)  And having explained to them all, he sent them to Yapho. (Act 10:9)  And on the next day, as they were on their way and approaching the city, Kĕpha went up on the house-top to pray, about the sixth hour. (Act 10:10)  And he became hungry and wished to eat. But while they were preparing, he fell into a trance (vision), (Act 10:11) and he saw the heaven opened and a certain vessel like a great sheet bound at the four corners, descending to him and let down to the earth, (Act 10:12) in which were all kinds of four-footed beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping creatures, and the birds of the heaven. (Act 10:13)  And a voice came to him, “Rise up, Kĕpha, slay and eat.” (Act 10:14)  But Kĕpha said, “Not at all, Master! Because I have never eaten whatever is common or unclean.” (Act 10:15)  And a voice came to him again the second time, “What Elohim has cleansed you do not consider common.”

Again YHWH shows Peter that the vision was not about unclean food but MEN!

(Act 10:16)  And this took place three times, and the vessel was taken back to the heaven. (Act 10:17)  And while Kĕpha was doubting within himself about what the vision might mean, look, the men who had been sent from Cornelius, having asked for the house of Shimʽon, stood at the gate, (Act 10:18)  and calling out, they enquired whether Shimʽon, also known as Kĕpha, was staying there. (Act 10:19)  And as Kĕpha was thinking about the vision, the Spirit said to him, “See, three men seek you. (Act 10:20)  “But rise up, go down and go with them, not doubting at all, for I have sent them.” (Act 10:21)  So Kĕpha went down to the men who had been sent to him from Cornelius, and said, “Look, I am the one you seek. Why have you come?” (Act 10:22)  And they said, “Cornelius the captain, a righteous man and one who fears Elohim and well-spoken of by the entire nation of the Yehuḏim, was instructed by a set-apart messenger to send for you to his house, and to hear words from you.” (Act 10:23)  So inviting them in, he housed them. And on the next day Kĕpha went away with them, and some brothers from Yapho went with him. (Act 10:24)  And the following day they entered into Caesarea. And Cornelius was waiting for them, having called together his relatives and close friends. (Act 10:25)  And it came to be, that when Kĕpha entered, Cornelius met him and fell down at his feet and bowed before him. (Act 10:26)  But Kĕpha raised him up, saying, “Stand up, I myself am also a man.” (Act 10:27)  And talking with him, he went in and found many who had come together. (Act 10:28)  And he said to them, “You know that a Yehuḏite man is not allowed to associate with, or go to one of another race. But Elohim has shown me that I should not call any man common or unclean.1 Footnote: 1See v. 35. (Act 10:29)  “That is why I came without hesitation when I was sent for. So I ask, why have you sent for me?”

Fasting always rids us of our UNBELIEF and allows us to hear from Heaven! Also note that this also allowed them to be witnesses as they heard them praying in unknown tongues!

(Act 10:30)  And Cornelius said, “Four days ago I was fasting until this hour. And at the ninth hour I prayed in my house, and see, a man (angel) stood before me in shining garments, (Act 10:31) and said, ‘Cornelius, your prayer has been heard, and your kind deeds were remembered before Elohim. (Act 10:32)  ‘Now send to Yapho and call Shimʽon here, who is also called Kĕpha. He is staying in the house of Shimʽon, a leather-tanner, by the sea. When he comes, he shall speak to you.’ (Act 10:33)  “So I sent to you immediately, and you have done well to come. And now, we are all present before Elohim, to hear all that you have been commanded by Elohim.” (Act 10:34)  And opening his mouth, Kĕpha said, “Truly I see that Elohim shows no partiality, (No respecter of persons- Hallelu-Yah!) (Act 10:35) but in every nation, he who fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him. (Act 10:36)  “He sent the word to the children of Yisra’ĕl, bringing the Good News: peace through יהושע Messiah! He is Master of all. (Act 10:37)  “You know what word came to be throughout all Yehuḏah, beginning from Galil after the immersion which Yoḥanan proclaimed: (Act 10:38)  how Elohim did anoint יהושע of Natsareth with the Set-apart Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for Elohim was with Him. (Act 10:39)  “And we are witnesses of all He did, both in the country of the Yehuḏim and in Yerushalayim, whom they even killed by hanging on a timber. (Act 10:40)  “Elohim raised up this One on the third day, and let Him be seen, (Act 10:41)  not to all the people, but to witnesses, those having been chosen before by Elohim – to us who ate and drank with Him after He arose from the dead. (Act 10:42)  “And He commanded us to proclaim to the people, and to witness that it is He who was appointed by Elohim to be Judge of the living and the dead.1 Footnote: 1See 17:31, John 5:29, Ps. 96:13, Ps. 98:9, Rev. 19:11. (Act 10:43)  “To this One all the prophets bear witness, that through His name; everyone believing in Him does receive forgiveness of sins.” (Act 10:44)  While Kĕpha was still speaking these words, the Set-apart Spirit fell upon all those hearing the word. (Act 10:45)  And those of the circumcision who believed were astonished (Jews), as many as came with Kĕpha, because the gift of the Set-apart Spirit had been poured out on the gentiles also, (Act 10:46) for they were hearing them speaking with tongues and extolling Elohim. Then Kĕpha answered, (Act 10:47) “Is anyone able to forbid water, that these should not be immersed who have received the Set-apart Spirit – even as also we?” (Act 10:48)  And he commanded them to be immersed in the Name of יהושע Messiah. Then they asked him to remain a few days.

Loved one, please pray agreement for prayers among us for direction, provision, protection and healing for so many it is not possible to name them.  YHWH hears your prayers and according to His word and promise- you/we have the thing we request! (1Jn 5:14)  And this is the boldness that we have in Him, that if we ask whatever according to His desire, He hears us. (1Jn 5:15)  And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.

Hallelu-Yah there is much power in agreemen prayer and fasting! Give thanks and dance before our King like King David danced and see the blessings of our Elohim poured out on you and OVERTAKING YOU! Try as you may obedient and much loved one, you cannot outrun the blessings of YHWH! Hallelu-Yah!

Shalom to your home loved one,
