Loved One, please share our studies as YHWH is restoring all to Himself- 104 countries have now read our weekly Torah Studies at Shabbat Shalom Loved One! This is nothing we have done- Mighty is YHWH who restores all things!

Okay we now review and think on how our victory will be and is coming; now that we know who we are and what is expected of us… let us take a closer look at what He directed me to quickly address for mighty break through prayers from us Loved One! How to get our prayers answered according to Scripture- EVERY TIME! This is critical that we know and understand this- in these days. We must learn to give thanks and praise Him no matter how the “Facts” appear! We will now learn to walk in His love! (This is what proves we belong to Him) (John 13:35)  By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if you love one another.

Read these Scriptures again and consider them carefully. There are two sets of Scriptures that come to mind--(Mar 11:22) And Yahshua answering, said to them, “Have belief (faith, trust) in Elohim. (Mar 11:23) “For truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says, shall be done, he shall have whatever he says. (Mar 11:24) “Because of this I say to you, whatever you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you shall have them. (Mar 11:25) “And whenever you stand praying, if you hold whatever against anyone, forgive, so that your Father in the heavens shall also forgive you your trespasses. So what we say and give thanks for continually! Stop asking and start thanking Him- continually who continues to ask for what he already has?
AND why we are absolutely convinced we have this petition as we all know He loves to be brought to remembrance (Of His promise)! He says in Isaiah "Put me to remembrance- let us reason together- here's the Scripture: (Isa 1:18) “Come now, and let us reason together,” says YHVH “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. (Isa 43:26) Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou that thou maybe justified. (1Jn 5:13) I have written this to you who believe in the Name of the Son of Elohim (Yahshua- Yeshua etc.), so that you know that you possess everlasting life, and so that you believe in the Name of the Son of Elohim. (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- STAND dear brothers and sisters- giving thanks and praise no matter how lost the storm in your face makes you see/think etc. - that is only the enemy trying to steal the word that is planted. This opposition is guaranteed- why would we not expect it? Keep planting and watering based on the TRUTH that will never pass away- The WORD made flesh who dwelt among us and do not be disheartened by the storms from the facts of giants in the land, facts are temporal and seen, but what is unseen is eternal- heaven and earth will indeed pass away but YHVH's word will never pass away- He cannot lie. Loved One- THIS IS GOOD NEWS- our prayers will be answered based on our thanksgivings--hey- what would we do if we REALLY believed our prayers were already answered even as we asked as we are promised above? (A question Yahshua once asked me; and He answered Himself and I’ve written it below!)
GIVE THANKS & DANCE continually- until the things that are subject to change (FACTS) are changed (manifest physically in our realm) to what we desire and proclaim! (We DECLARE or proclaim by speaking agreement as all His promises are YES and Amen or so be it) Rejoice- Again I say- Rejoice! Hey if we are uncomfortable worshipping and dancing before Him now with surrendered raised hands, how would we ever be comfortable in the Kingdom? How will we worship Him when it looks as though things are hopeless? We must draw near NOW and become OVERCOMERS Loved One!
Let’s complete our review from last week’s concern! The issue I believe should wake us all up to the Times and Seasons we are now living in. (Joel 3:2) then I shall gather all gentiles, and bring them down to the Valley of Yehoshaphat. And I shall enter into judgment with them there for my people, my inheritance Yisra’ĕl, whom they have scattered among the gentiles, and they have divided (parted) up my land. (Joel 3:3)  “And they have cast lots for my people, and have given a young man for a whore, and sold a girl for wine, and drank it. (Joel 3:4)  “And also, what are you to me, O Tsor and Tsiḏon, and all the coasts of Philistia (Palestine/Palestinians)? Are you repaying me? And if you are repaying me, I would swiftly and speedily return your reward on your own head. Let’s look at that last portion of the verse in another version also-ASV-, swiftly and speedily will I return your recompense upon your own head. And another version or two: KJV- swiftly and speedily will I return your recompense upon your own head; -JPS swiftly, speedily will I return your retribution upon your own head. Possibilities & Expectations- Time for us to Draw Near to Elohim and Fear NOT! I expect whatever countries are involved in parting Israel will be parted literally. I would expect whichever countries side with hasatan against YHVH’s promises will be repaid in like manner (Recompense) and SWIFTLY. Here are two glaring thoughts I expect to manifest shortly; the plan of the U.N. One World Pharaoh driven Tower of Babel System to divide the land of Israel for peace with the Philistinians (wordplay) on September 20, 2011 will have Israel defenseless and divided. Some of us believe it is the Psalm 83 war.
But I suspect it is also defined as the time of Isaiah 13 war: (Isa 13:9) See, the day of יהוה is coming, fierce, with wrath and heat of displeasure, to lay the earth waste, and destroy its sinners from it. (Isa 13:10)  For the stars of the heavens and their constellations do not give off their light. The sun shall be dark at its rising, and the moon not send out its light. (Isa 13:11)  “And I shall punish the world for its evil, and the wrong for their crookedness, and shall put an end to the arrogance of the proud and lay low the pride of the ruthless. (Isa 13:12)  “I shall make mortal man scarcer than fine gold and mankind scarcer than the gold of Ophir. (Isa 13:13)  So I shall make the heavens tremble, and the earth shall shake from her place, in the wrath of יהוה of hosts and in the day of the heat of His displeasure. (Isa 13:14)  “And it shall be as the hunted gazelle, and as a sheep that no man takes up – every man turns to his own people, and everyone flees to his own land. (Isa 13:15)  “Whoever is found is thrust through, and everyone taken falls by the sword. (Isa 13:16)  “And their children are dashed to pieces before their eyes, their houses plundered and their wives ravished. (Isa 13:17)  “See, I am stirring up the Medes (Iranians) against them, who do not regard silver, and as for gold, they do not delight in it. (Isa 13:18)  “And bows dash the young to pieces, and they have no compassion on the fruit of the womb, their eyes spare no children. (Isa 13:19)  “And Baḇel (USA?), the splendor of reigns, the comeliness of the Chaldeans’ pride, shall be as when Elohim overthrew Seḏom and Amorah.

And also described in Zechariah; (Zechariah 13:8) and it shall be throughout all the soil,” declares יהוה, “that two thirds therein are cut off and die, and one third is left therein. (Zechariah 13:9)  “And I shall bring the third into fire, and refine them as silver is refined, and try them as gold is tried. They shall call on My Name1, and I shall answer them. I shall say, ‘This is my people,’ while they say, ‘יהוה is my Elohim.’ ” Footnote: 1Zephaniah. 3:9. (Zechariah 14:1) See, a day shall come for יהוה, and your spoil shall be divided in your midst. (Zechariah 14:2)  And I shall gather all the gentiles to battle against Yerushalayim1. And the city shall be taken, the houses plundered, and the women ravished. Half of the city shall go into exile, but the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Footnote: 1Joel 3:2, Zeph. 3:8, Rev. 16:14. (Zechariah 14:3)  And יהוה shall go forth, and He shall fight against those gentiles, as He fights in the day of battle. (Zechariah 14:4)  And in that day His feet shall stand upon the Mount of Olives, which faces Yerushalayim on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, from east to west, a very great valley, and half of the mountain shall move toward the north and half of it toward the south. (Zechariah 14:5)  And you shall flee to the valley of My Mountain – for the valley of the mountains reaches to Atsal. And you shall flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziyah sovereign of Yehuḏah.  יהוה my Elohim shall come – all the set-apart ones with you. (Zechariah 14:6)  And in that day it shall be: there is no light, it is dark.

My expectation (Not my hope) is; IF this U.N vote goes as expected on September 20, 2011; (Less than 1 month from today) and the USA abstains from voting their VETO power; these events will likely SWIFTLY follow. Our country will be as we have provided Israel, DEFENSELESS AND PARTED- we might also expect that 2/3 of us are killed and 1/3 brought through the fire, a REMNANT.  Loved One, let pray, fast, worship and draw ever close to our coming King- because it appears to me the Day of the Lord is at hand!

(Joel 2:15)  Blow a ram’s horn (Shofar- Trumpet) in Tsiyon, set apart a fast, call an assembly. (Joel 2:16) Gather the people, set the assembly apart, assemble the elders, and gather the children and nursing babes. Let a bridegroom come out from his room, and a bride from her dressing room. (Joel 2:17) Let the priests, servants of יהוה, weep between the porch and the altar. And let them say, “Spare your people, O יהוה, and do not give your inheritance to reproach, for the gentiles to rule over them. Why should they say among the peoples, ‘Where is their Elohim?’ ” (Joel 2:18) And let יהוה be jealous for His land, and spare His people. (Joel 2:19)  And let יהוה answer and say to His people, “See, I am sending you the grain and the new wine and the oil, and you shall be satisfied by them. And no longer do I make you a reproach among the gentiles. (Joel 2:20)  “And the Northerner I shall remove far from you, and drive him away into a dry and deserted land, with his face toward the eastern sea and his rear toward the western sea. And his stench shall come up and his smell rise, for he has done greatly.” (Joel 2:21)  Do not fear O soil, be glad and rejoice, for יהוה has done greatly! (Joel 2:22)  Do not fear, you beasts of the field, for the pastures of the wilderness shall spring forth, and the tree shall bear its fruit, the fig tree and the vine shall yield their strength. (Joel 2:23)  And you children of Tsiyon, be glad and rejoice in יהוה your Elohim, for He shall give you the Teacher of Righteousness, and cause the rain to come down for you, the former rain and the latter rain, as before. (Joel 2:24)  And the threshing-floors shall be filled with grain, and the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil. (Joel 2:25)  “Then I shall repay you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the crawling locust, and the consuming locust, and the gnawing locust, my great army which I sent among you. (Joel 2:26)  “Then you shall eat – eat and be satisfied – and shall praise the Name of יהוה your Elohim, who has done with you so wondrously. And my people shall never be put to shame. (Joel 2:27)  “And you shall know that I am in the midst of Yisra’ĕl1, and that I am יהוה your Elohim and there is no one else. And my people shall never be put to shame. Footnote: 1See Isa. 24:23. (Joel 2:28)  “And after this it shall be that I pour out My Spirit on all flesh. And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men dream dreams, your young men see visions. (Joel 2:29)  “And also on the male servants and on the female servants I shall pour out My Spirit in those days. (Joel 2:30)  “And I shall give signs in the heavens and upon the earth: blood and fire and columns of smoke, (Joel 2:31) the sun is turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of יהוה. (Joel 2:32)  “And it shall be that everyone who calls on the Name of יהוה shall be delivered1. On Mount Tsiyon and in Yerushalayim there shall be an escape2 as יהוה has said, and among the survivors whom יהוה calls. Footnotes: 1Acts 2:21, Rom. 10:13. 2Isaiah. 4:2-3, Obad. v. 17, Rev. 14:1.

With the Awakening Trumpet blast at hand, (Feast of Trumpets late this month); let’s be sober and alert and about our Father’s business. I have heard it spoken often, “If the devil cannot steal your joy (hope and expectation of the Father’s promise) - he cannot steal anything! In our overcoming we want to glorify our Father in Heaven and produce fruit that remains! (John 15:7)  If you stay in me, and my Words stay (remain) in you, you shall ask whatever you wish, and it shall be done for you. (John 15:8)  “In this My Father is esteemed (glorified), 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 in my love. (John 15:10)  “If you guard my commands, you shall stay in my love,1 even as I have guarded My Father’s commands and stay 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.

Earlier in the week our loving Heavenly Father showed me our topic: We can produce nothing without first loving YHVH and then people! (Mat 22:36)  “Teacher, which is the greatest command in the Torah?” (Mat 22:37)  And יהושע said to him, “‘you shall love יהוה your Elohim with all your heart, and with all your being, and with your entire mind.(Mat 22:38)  “This is the first and great command. (Mat 22:39)  “And the second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ (Mat 22:40)  “On these two commands hang all the Torah and the Prophets.” We should take note that the first 4 of the Ten Commandments tell us how YHVH wants to be loved by defining how He wants to be loved; and the last 6 of the commandments define how He wants us to love others- by our actions.

Okay, so I am discussing LOVE as a noun (the state of being) but especially as a verb, the action of doing! How does our trust, belief, faith come to us- by hearing and hearing, right? (Rom 10:13)   Everyone who calls on the Name of יהוה shall be saved.” (Rom 10:14)  How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without one proclaiming? (Rom 10:15)  And how shall they proclaim if they are not sent? As it has been written, “How pleasant are the feet of those who bring the Good News of peace, who bring the Good News of the good (promises)!” (Rom 10:16)  However, not all obeyed the Good News. Yeshayahu says, “יהוה, who has believed our report?” (Rom 10:17)  So then belief (Faith-trust) comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of Elohim. Could we agree that whatever words we CONTINUALLY HEAR we will believe?  Let’s look closely at why this is of great import for us. (Mar 11:22)  And יהושע answering, said to them, “Have belief (Faith-trust) in Elohim. (Mar 11:23)  “For truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says, shall be done, he shall have whatever he says. (Mar 11:24)  “Because of this I say to you, whatever you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you shall have them. So our question we must each answer for our own results is: WHAT ARE WE SAYING? I expect that we are the primary hearers of every word we speak! So WHAT ARE WE HEARING?

I know from my own experience that loved ones around us, heck for that matter; ANYONE around us, will not listen to how much we may know (No matter the subject) until they know if we really have their best interest in mind- or spoken bluntly; the second great commandment of loving our neighbor (Others) as ourselves! Granted, you and I may actually know what is good for them and would be most helpful for them, (About any chosen topic) but until WE quit failing in our LOVING THEM, they will never hear us! (Rom 5:1)  Therefore, having been declared right standing (righteous) by belief (Faith-trust), we have peace with Elohim through our Master יהושע Messiah, (Rom 5:2) through whom also we have access by belief (Faith-trust) into this favor in which we stand, and we exult in the expectation of the esteem (glory) of Elohim. (Rom 5:3)  And not only this, but we also exult in pressures, knowing that pressure works endurance; (Rom 5:4)  and endurance, our being approved; and then approvedness, expectation (hope- the very substance of our faith-trust). (Rom 5:5)  And expectation does not disappoint, because the love of Elohim has been poured out in our hearts by the Set-apart Spirit which was given to us.

How does that happen, how do we get the love of YHVH poured into our hearts? This is important because His love never fails, but usually our natural love fails often. Once again, obedience (Requires our humbling ourselves) plays a significant role in our receiving the Holy Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh) which always magnifies Yahshua (Jesus) and guides us into all truth. (Act 5:31)  “Him, a Prince and a Savior, Elohim has exalted to His right hand, to give repentance to Yisra’ĕl and forgiveness of sins. (Act 5:32)  “And we are His witnesses to these matters, and so also is the Set-apart Spirit whom Elohim has given to those who obey Him.”1 Footnote: 1See 1 John 3:24.

Let’s look at some Scriptures that show us the importance of really humbling ourselves and loving others as ourselves instead of puffing ourselves up and exalting ourselves as though we are in such low self-esteem we must have their confirmation of how great we are. First we will try and establish what faith or believing consists of. (Hebrews 11:1)  And belief (faith- trust) is the substance of what is expected (Hoped for-the promise of YHVH not yet seen), the proof of what is not seen. (Hebrews 11:2)  For by this the elders obtained witness. (Comment: remember that all matters are confirmed by two or more witnesses) (Hebrews 11:3)  By belief (faith- trust), we understand that the ages were prepared by the word of Elohim, so that what is seen was not made of what is visible…. (Hebrews 11:6)  But without belief (faith- trust) it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to Elohim has to believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who earnestly seek Him.

Even our believing trusting and faith works only through our loving. (First YHVH and then people) (Gal 5:5)  For we, in Spirit, by belief (Faith-trust), eagerly wait for the expectation of righteousness. (Gal 5:6)  For in Messiah יהושע neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any strength, but belief (Faith-trust) working through love. Walking in love allows us to have confidence and boldness in Him- which we drastically need in these days of great troubles.

Here’s clarity by the word made flesh that dwelled among us- Yahshua! (Jesus)

(1Jn 4:7)  Beloved ones, let us love one another, because love is of Elohim, and everyone who loves has been born of Elohim, and knows Elohim. (1Jn 4:8)  The one who does not love does not know Elohim, for Elohim is love. (1Jn 4:9)  By this the love of Elohim was manifested in us, that Elohim has sent His only brought-forth Son into the world, in order that we might live through Him. (1Jn 4:10)  In this is love, not that we loved Elohim, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be an atoning offering for our sins. (1Jn 4:11)  Beloved ones, if Elohim so loved us, we also ought to love one another. (1Jn 4:12)  No one has seen Elohim at any time. If we love one another, Elohim does stay in us, and His love has been perfected in us. (1Jn 4:13)  By this we know that we stay in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. (1Jn 4:14)  And we have seen and bear witness that the Father has sent the Son, Savior of the world. (1Jn 4:15)  Whoever confesses that יהושע is the Son of Elohim, Elohim stays in him, and he in Elohim. (1Jn 4:16)  And we have known and believed the love that Elohim has for us. Elohim is love, and he who stays in love stays in Elohim and Elohim in him. (1Jn 4:17)  By this love has been perfected with us, in order that we might have boldness in the Day of Judgment (Comment: Yom Kippur- Day of Atonement- remember with me that Yahshua is coming next to be Judge- as the LION OF JUDAH and this time is also known as Jacob’s Trouble so we will need confidence and boldness to approach the Throne of Grace and Mercy), because as He is so are we in this world. (1Jn 4:18)  There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear, because fear holds punishment, and he who fears has not been made perfect in love. (1Jn 4:19)  We love Him because He first loved us. (1Jn 4:20)  If someone says, “I love Elohim,” and hates his brother, he is a liar. For the one not loving his brother whom he has seen, how is he able to love Elohim whom he has not seen?

Do we covet the praise/acceptance of men and loved ones OR the praise of YHVH?

Okay we are beginning to get a glimpse of the vast import of us changing and walking in His love. How we treat others is really known by them. Are we failing in our love walk? You and I already know the answer based on whether others receive our testimony or not. Are some loved ones rejecting our message? Likely, so we must walk in love regardless of how they treat or speak about us, not returning evil for evil or curse for curse. We must obey Yahshua: (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? We must be different, loved ones!

Here are the final thoughts I have been shown to address for us this week Loved One! Walking in love toward others- more than needing self-exaltation and assurance and confirmation from others- is our test. YHVH gets lifted up by our humbling and following. He then can draw all men to Himself- if we will humble ourselves. (John 12:31)  “Now is the judgment of this world, now the ruler of this world1 shall be cast out. Footnote: 1See Luke. 4:6. (John 12:32) “And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, shall draw all men unto myself.” (John 12:33)  This He said, signifying by what death He was about to die. (John 12:34)  The crowd answered Him, “We have heard out of the Torah that the Messiah remains forever. And how do you say, ‘The Son of Aḏam has to be lifted up’? Who is this Son of Aḏam?” (John 12:35) יהושע, therefore, said to them, “Yet a little while the light is with you. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness overtake you. And he who walks in darkness does not know where he is going. (John 12:36)  “While you have the light, believe in the light, so that you become sons of light.” This word יהושע spoke, and went off and was hidden from them. (John 12:37)  But though He had done so many signs before them, they did not believe in Him, (John 12:38) that the word of Yeshayahu the prophet might be filled, which he spoke, “יהוה, who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of יהוה been revealed?” (John 12:39)  Because of this they were unable to believe, because again Yeshayahu said: (John 12:40)He has blinded their eyes and hardened their heart, so that they should not see with their eyes and understand with their heart, and turn, and I should heal them.”1 Footnote: 1See Mt. 13:15. (John 12:41)  Yeshayahu said this when he saw His esteem and spoke of Him. (John 12:42)  Still, even among the rulers many did believe in Him, but because of the Pharisees they did not confess Him, lest they should be put out of the congregation, (John 12:43)  for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of Elohim. (John 12:44)  Then יהושע cried out and said, “He who believes in me, believes not in me but in Him who sent me. (John 12:45) “And he who sees me sees Him who sent me. (John 12:46) “I have come as a light into the world, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness. (John 12:47)  “And if anyone hears My Words but does not watch over them, I do not judge him. I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. (John 12:48)  “He who rejects me, and does not receive My Words, has one who judges him: the Word that I have spoken shall judge him in the last day.1 Footnote: 1See 3:18-19, 7:16. Now that we know the importance of loving the praise of YHVH more than the praise of men, let’s turn our hearts and minds to this week’s Torah.

This week’s Torah Scriptures: Vayakhel “And he assembled”

Exodus 35:1-38:20; 1 Kings 7:13-26; 2 Corinthians 9:1-26

The First Great Test of OBEDIENCE- THE SHABBAT (Sabbath)!

(Exodus 35:1)  And Mosheh assembled all the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl, and said to them, “These are the Words which יהוה has commanded you to do: (Exodus 35:2)Work is done for six days, but on the seventh day it shall be set-apart to you, a Sabbath of rest to יהוה. Anyone doing work on it is put to death. (Exodus 35:3)  “Do not kindle a fire in any of your dwellings on the Sabbath day.” (Exodus 35:4)  And Mosheh spoke to all the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl, saying, “This is the word which יהוה commanded, saying, (Exodus 35:5) ‘Take from among you a contribution to יהוה. Everyone whose heart so moves him, let him bring it as a contribution to יהוה: gold, and silver, and bronze, (Exodus 35:6)  and blue, and purple, and scarlet material, and fine linen, and goats’ hair, (Exodus 35:7)  and ram skins dyed red, and fine leather, and acacia wood, (Exodus 35:8)  and oil for the light, and spices for the anointing oil and for the sweet incense, (Exodus 35:9)  and shoham stones, and stones to be set in the shoulder garment and in the breastplate. (Exodus 35:10)  ‘And let all the wise-hearted among you come and make all that יהוה has commanded: (Exodus 35:11)  the Dwelling Place, its tent and its covering, its hooks and its boards, its bars, its columns, and its sockets, (Exodus 35:12)  the ark and its poles, the lid of atonement and the veil of the covering, (Exodus 35:13)  the table and its poles, and all its utensils, and the showbread, (Exodus 35:14)  and the lampstand for the light, and its utensils, and its lamps, and the oil for the light, (Exodus 35:15)  and the incense altar, and its poles, and the anointing oil, and the sweet incense, and the covering for the door at the entrance of the Dwelling Place, (Exodus 35:16)  the altar of burnt offering with its bronze grating, its poles, and all its utensils, the basin and its stand, (Exodus 35:17)  the screens of the courtyard, its columns, and their sockets, and the covering for the gate of the courtyard, (Exodus 35:18)  the pegs of the Dwelling Place, and the pegs of the courtyard, and their cords, (Exodus 35:19)  the woven garments to do service in the set-apart place, the set-apart garments for Aharon the priest and the garments of his sons to serve as priests.’ ” (Exodus 35:20) and all the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl withdrew from the presence of Mosheh. (Exodus 35:21)  And everyone whose heart lifted him up and everyone whose spirit moved him came, and they brought the contribution to יהוה for the work of the Tent of Meeting, and for all its service, and for the set-apart garments. (Exodus 35:22)  And they came, both men and women, all whose hearts moved them, and brought earrings and nose rings, and rings and necklaces, all golden goods, even everyone who made a wave offering of gold to יהוה. (Exodus 35:23)  And every man, with whom was found blue and purple and scarlet material, and fine linen, and goats’ hair, and rams’ skins dyed red, and fine leather, brought them. (Exodus 35:24)  Everyone who would make a contribution to יהוה of silver or bronze brought it. And everyone with who was found acacia wood for any work of the service brought it. (Exodus 35:25)  And all the wise-hearted women spun yarn with their hands, and brought what they had spun, the blue and the purple, the scarlet material, and the fine linen. (Exodus 35:26)  And all the women whose hearts lifted them up in wisdom spun the goats’ hair. (Exodus 35:27)  And the rulers brought shoham stones, and the stones to be set in the shoulder garment and in the breastplate, (Exodus 35:28) and the spices and the oil for the light, and for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense. (Exodus 35:29)  The children of Yisra’ĕl brought a voluntary offering to יהוה, all the men and women whose hearts moved them to bring all kinds of work which יהוה, by the hand of Mosheh, had commanded to be done. (Exodus 35:30)  And Mosheh said to the children of Yisra’ĕl, “See, יהוה has called by name Betsal’ĕl son of Uri, son of Ḥur, of the tribe of Yehuḏah, (Exodus 35:31)  and He has filled him with the Spirit of Elohim, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all work, (Exodus 35:32)  to make designs, to work in gold and in silver and in bronze, (Exodus 35:33)  and in cutting of stones for setting, and in carving wood, and to work in all workmanship of design. (Exodus 35:34)  “And He has put in his heart the ability to teach, in him and Oholiaḇ son of Aḥisamaḵ, of the tribe of Dan. (Exodus 35:35)  “He has filled them with skill to do all work of the engraver and the designer and embroiderer, in blue and in purple, in scarlet material, and in fine linen, and a weaver, doing any work, and makers of designs.

Giving to YHVH abundantly brings our provision back to us abundantly!

(Exodus 36:1)  “And Betsal’ĕl and Oholiaḇ, and every wise-hearted man in whom יהוה has given wisdom and understanding, to know how to do all work for the service of the set-apart place, shall do according to all that יהוה has commanded.” (Exodus 36:2)  And Mosheh called Betsal’ĕl and Oholiaḇ, and every wise-hearted man in whose heart יהוה had given wisdom, everyone whose heart lifted him up, to come and do the work. (Exodus 36:3)  And they received from Mosheh all the contribution which the children of Yisra’ĕl had brought for the work of the service of making the set-apart place. But they still brought to him voluntary offerings every morning, (Exodus 36:4) so all the craftsmen who were doing all the work of the set-apart place came, each from the work he was doing, (Exodus 36:5) and they spoke to Mosheh, saying, “The people bring much more than enough for the service of the work which יהוה commanded us to do.” (Exodus 36:6)  Then Mosheh commanded and they sent this word throughout the camp, saying, “Let neither man nor woman do any more work for the contribution of the set-apart place.” And the people were withheld from bringing, (Exodus 36:7) for what they had was enough for all the work to be done, more than enough. (Exodus 36:8)  Then all the wise-hearted ones among them who worked on the Dwelling Place made ten curtains woven of fine linen and blue and purple and scarlet material. They made them with keruḇim, the work of a skilled workman. (Exodus 36:9)  The length of each curtain was twenty-eight cubits, and the width of each curtain four cubits, all the curtains having one measure. (Exodus 36:10)  And he joined five curtains, one to another; and the other five curtains he joined, one to another. (Exodus 36:11)  And he made loops of blue on the edge of the end curtain of one set, the same he did on the edge of the end curtain of the other set. (Exodus 36:12)  Fifty loops he made on one curtain, and fifty loops he made on the edge of the end curtain of the second set; the loops held one curtain to another. (Exodus 36:13)  And he made fifty hooks of gold, and joined the curtains to each other with the hooks, and the Dwelling Place became one. (Exodus 36:14)  And he made curtains of goats’ hair for the tent over the Dwelling Place, he made eleven curtains. (Exodus 36:15)  The length of each curtain was thirty cubits, and the width of each curtain four cubits, the eleven curtains having one measure. (Exodus 36:16)  And he joined five curtains by themselves and six curtains by themselves. (Exodus 36:17)  And he made fifty loops on the edge of the end curtain in one set, and fifty loops he made on the edge of the curtain of the second set. (Exodus 36:18)  And he made fifty bronze hooks to join the tent, to be one. (Exodus 36:19)  And he made a covering for the tent of rams’ skins, dyed red, and a covering of fine leather above that. (Exodus 36:20)  And for the Dwelling Place he made boards of acacia wood, standing up. (Exodus 36:21)  The length of each board was ten cubits, and the width of each board a cubit and a half. (Exodus 36:22)  Each board had two tenons for binding one to another. So he did to all the boards of the Dwelling Place. (Exodus 36:23)  And he made boards for the Dwelling Place, twenty boards for the south side. (Exodus 36:24)  And he made forty sockets of silver to go under the twenty boards, and two sockets under each of the boards for its two tenons. (Exodus 36:25)  And for the other side of the Dwelling Place, for the north side, he made twenty boards, (Exodus 36:26) and their forty sockets of silver, two sockets under the one board, and two sockets under the other board. (Exodus 36:27)  And he made six boards for the west side of the Dwelling Place. (Exodus 36:28)  And he made two boards for the two back corners of the Dwelling Place. (Exodus 36:29)  And they were double beneath, and similarly they were complete to the top by one ring. So he did to both of them for the two corners. (Exodus 36:30)  And there were eight boards, and their silver sockets, sixteen sockets, two sockets under each of the boards. (Exodus 36:31)  And he made bars of acacia wood, five for the boards on one side of the Dwelling Place, (Exodus 36:32)  and five bars for the boards on the other side of the Dwelling Place, and five bars for the boards of the Dwelling Place at the rear, westward. (Exodus 36:33)  And he made the middle bar to pass through the boards from one end to the other. (Exodus 36:34)  And he overlaid the boards with gold, and their rings he made of gold to be holders for the bars, and overlaid the bars with gold. (Exodus 36:35)  And he made a veil of blue and purple and scarlet material, and fine worked linen. It was made with keruḇim, the work of a skilled workman. (Exodus 36:36)  And he made four columns of acacia wood for it, and overlaid them with gold, with their hooks of gold. And he cast four sockets of silver for them. (Exodus 36:37)  And he made a covering for the Tent door of blue and purple and scarlet material and fine woven linen, made by a weaver, (Exodus 36:38)  and its five columns with their hooks. And he overlaid their tops and their rings with gold, but their five sockets were of bronze.

My expectation is the Ark of the Covenant is the Throne of YHVH in the earth and will be sat in by the anti-messiah as the abomination that makes desolate…

(Exodus 37:1)  And Betsal’ĕl made the ark of acacia wood, two and a half cubits long, and a cubit and a half wide, and a cubit and a half high. (Exodus 37:2)  And he overlaid it with clean gold inside and outside, and made a molding of gold all around it. (Exodus 37:3)  And he cast four rings of gold for it, for its four feet, two rings on its one side, and two rings on its other side. (Exodus 37:4)  And he made poles of acacia wood, and overlaid them with gold. (Exodus 37:5)  And he put the poles into the rings at the sides of the ark, to lift the ark. (Exodus 37:6)  And he made a lid of atonement of clean gold, two and a half cubits long and a cubit and a half wide. (Exodus 37:7)  And he made two keruḇim of beaten gold. He made them from the two ends of the lid of atonement, (Exodus 37:8) one keruḇ at one end on this side, and the other keruḇ at the other end on that side. He made the keruḇim from the lid of atonement, from the two ends. (Exodus 37:9)  And the keruḇim spread out their wings above, and covered the lid of atonement with their wings, with their faces toward each other; the faces of the keruḇim were turned toward the lid of atonement. (Exodus 37:10)  And he made the table of acacia wood, two cubits long, and a cubit wide, and a cubit and a half high. (Exodus 37:11)  And he overlaid it with clean gold, and made a molding of gold all around it. (Exodus 37:12)  And he made a rim of a handbreadth all around it, and made a molding of gold for the rim all around it. (Exodus 37:13)  And he cast four rings of gold for it, and put the rings on the four corners that were at its four legs. (Exodus 37:14)  The rings were next to the rim, as holders for the poles to lift the table. (Exodus 37:15)  And he made the poles of acacia wood to lift the table, and overlaid them with gold. (Exodus 37:16)  And he made the utensils which were on the table, its dishes, and its cups, and its bowls, and its jars for pouring, of clean gold. (Exodus 37:17)  And he made the lampstand of clean gold. He made the lampstand of beaten work, its base, and its shaft, its cups, its ornamental knobs, and its blossoms were from it. (Exodus 37:18)  And six branches came out of its sides: three branches of the lampstand out of one side, and three branches of the lampstand out of the other side. (Exodus 37:19)  There were three cups like almond flowers on one branch, with ornamental knob and blossom, and three cups like almond flowers on the other branch, a knob and a blossom – so for the six branches coming out of the lampstand. (Exodus 37:20)  And on the lampstand were four cups like almond flowers, its knobs and blossoms, (Exodus 37:21)  and a knob under the first two branches of the same, and a knob under the second two branches of the same, and a knob under the third two branches of the same, for the six branches coming out of it. (Exodus 37:22)  Their knobs and their branches were of it, all of it was one beaten work of clean gold. (Exodus 37:23)  And he made its seven lamps, and its snuffers, and its trays, of clean gold. (Exodus 37:24)  He made it of a talent of clean gold, and all its utensils. (Exodus 37:25)  And he made the incense altar of acacia wood, a cubit long and a cubit wide, square, and two cubits high. Its horns were of it. (Exodus 37:26)  And he overlaid it with clean gold, its top and its sides all around, and its horns. And he made a molding for it of gold all around it. (Exodus 37:27)  And he made two rings of gold for it under its molding, at its two corners on both sides, as holders for the poles with which to lift it. (Exodus 37:28)  And he made the poles of acacia wood, and overlaid them with gold. (Exodus 37:29)  And he made the set-apart anointing oil and the clean incense of sweet spices, according to the work of the perfumer. (Exodus 38:1)  And he made the altar of burnt offering of acacia wood, five cubits long and five cubits wide, square, and three cubits high. (Exodus 38:2)  And he made its horns on its four corners, the horns were of it. And he overlaid it with bronze. (Exodus 38:3)  And he made all the utensils for the altar: the pots, and the shovels, and the basins, and the forks, and the fire holders. He made all its utensils of bronze. (Exodus 38:4)  And he made a grating for the altar, a bronze network, under its rim, midway from the bottom. (Exodus 38:5)  And he cast four rings for the four corners of the bronze grating, as holders for the poles. (Exodus 38:6)  And he made the poles of acacia wood, and overlaid them with bronze. (Exodus 38:7)  And he put the poles into the rings on the sides of the altar, with which to lift it. He made the altar hollow with boards. (Exodus 38:8)  And he made the basin of bronze and its stand of bronze, from the bronze mirrors of the serving women who did service at the door of the Tent of Meeting. (Exodus 38:9)  And he made the courtyard: for the south side the screens of the courtyard were of fine woven linen, one hundred cubits long, (Exodus 38:10) their twenty columns and their twenty sockets, of bronze. The hooks of the columns and their bands were of silver. (Exodus 38:11)  And for the north side the screens were one hundred cubits long, their twenty columns and their twenty sockets, of bronze. The hooks of the columns and their bands were of silver. (Exodus 38:12)  And for the west side there were screens of fifty cubits, their ten columns and their ten sockets. The hooks of the columns and their bands were of silver.

And all the columns of the courtyard had bands of silver. (Exodus 38:18)  And the covering for the gate of the courtyard was the work of an embroiderer, of blue and purple and scarlet material, and of fine woven linen, and twenty cubits long, and the height along its width was five cubits, corresponding to the screens of the courtyard. (Exodus 38:19)  And the columns were four and their sockets of bronze four, their hooks were of silver, and the overlay of their tops and their bands was of silver. (Exodus 38:20)  And all the pegs of the Dwelling Place and of the courtyard all around, were of bronze.

(1Ki 7:13)  And Sovereign Shelomoh sent and brought Ḥiram from Tsor. (1Ki 7:14)  He was the son of a widow from the tribe of Naphtali, and his father was a man of Tsor, a bronze worker. And he was filled with wisdom and understanding and skill in working with all kinds of bronze work. So he came to Sovereign Shelomoh and did all his work. (1Ki 7:15)  And he cast two columns of bronze, each one eighteen cubits high, and a line of twelve cubits measured the circumference of each. (1Ki 7:16)  And he made two capitals of cast bronze, to put on the tops of the columns – the height of one capital was five cubits, and the height of the other capital was five cubits – (1Ki 7:17) a lattice network, with wreaths of chain work, for the capitals which were on top of the columns, seven chains for one capital and seven for the other capital. (1Ki 7:18)  And he made the columns, and two rows of pomegranates above the network all around to cover the capitals that were on top, and so he did for the other capital. (1Ki 7:19)  And the capitals that were on top of the columns in the hall were in the shape of lilies, four cubits. (1Ki 7:20)  And there were capitals above also on the two columns, by the bulge which was next to the network. And the pomegranates were two hundred, in rows on each of the capitals all around. (1Ki 7:21)  And he set up the columns by the porch of the hĕḵal. And he set up the column on the right and called its name Yaḵin, and he set up the column on the left and called its name Boʽaz. (1Ki 7:22) and on the top of the columns was lily work. Thus the work of the columns was completed. (1Ki 7:23)  And he made the Sea of cast metal, ten cubits from one rim to the other, round all about, and five cubits high, and a line of thirty cubits measured around it. (1Ki 7:24)  And below its rim were ornaments all around, ten to a cubit, all the way around the Sea. The ornaments were cast in two rows when it was cast. (1Ki 7:25)  It stood on twelve oxen, three facing north, and three facing west, and three facing south, and three facing east. And the Sea was set upon them, and all their back parts were inward. (1Ki 7:26)  And it was a handbreadth thick, and its rim was shaped like the rim of a cup, like a lily blossom. It held two thousand baths.

You have the right to partake in the reward of those that minister the Good News of Torah and the Prophets by helping them as YHVH directs you!

(1Co 9:1)  Am I not an emissary? Am I not free? Have I not seen יהושע Messiah our Master? Are you not my work in the Master? (1Co 9:2)  If to others I am not an emissary, I certainly am to you. For you are the seal of my office of the emissary in the Master. (1Co 9:3)  My defense to those who examine me is this: (1Co 9:4) Do we not have a right to eat and drink? (1Co 9:5)  Do we not have a right to take along a sister – a wife – as do also the other emissaries, and the brothers of the Master, and Kĕpha? (Peter) (1Co 9:6)  Or do only Barnaḇah and I have no right to refrain from working? (1Co 9:7)  Who serves as a soldier at his own expense? Who plants a vineyard and does not eat of its fruit? Or who shepherds a flock and does not feed on the milk of the flock? (1Co 9:8)  Do I say this as a man? Or does not the Torah say the same too? (1Co 9:9)  For it has been written in the Torah of Mosheh, “You shall not muzzle an ox while it treads out the grain.Is it about oxen Elohim is concerned? (1Co 9:10)  Or does He say it because of us all? For this was written because of us, that he who ploughs should plough in expectation, and the thresher in expectation of sharing. (1Co 9:11)  If we have sown spiritual seed among you, is it too much if we reap material goods from you? (1Co 9:12)  If others share authority over you, should not rather we? But we have not used this authority, but we put up with all, lest we hinder the Good News of Messiah. (1Co 9:13)  Do you not know that those serving the Set-apart Place eat from the Set-apart Place, and those attending at the altar have their share of the offerings of the altar? (1Co 9:14)  So also the Master instituted that those announcing the Good News should live from the Good News. (1Co 9:15)  But I have used none of these, nor have I written this that it should be done so to me. For it would be better for me to die than that anyone should make my boasting empty. (1Co 9:16)  For if I bring the Good News, it is no boasting for me, for necessity is laid on me, and it is woe to me if I do not bring the Good News!....(1Co 9:24)  Do you not know that those who run in a race indeed all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way as to obtain it. (1Co 9:25)  And everyone who competes controls himself in every way. Now they do it to receive a corruptible crown, but we for an incorruptible crown. (1Co 9:26)  Therefore I run accordingly, not with uncertainty. Thus I fight, not as one who beats the air. (1Co 9:27)  But I treat my body severely and make it my slave, so that when I have proclaimed to others, I myself might be rejected.

Loved One, my prayer for you and your loved ones is that you run the race in Father’s love- which never fails. I pray that YHVH directs you, protects you, provides for you, and uses you mightily as a fearless loved one that produces much fruit that remains- and that all your loved ones (and you) enter the Kingdom of Heaven having run the race well, hearing “Well Done you faith filled servant of mine- enter into my joy!” Loved one, thanks for your same prayers for me- you are much loved and appreciated! Thanks so much for speaking them- they will come back to you fulfilled!

Shalom to your home Loved One,
