Last week we considered the question; WHO IS REALLY OUR FAMILY? We also answered the question; “WHO’S YOUR DADDY? Today we will consider our prayer life and what protocol allows us His presence; THANKSGIVING.

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

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

Have WE inherited lies? Most Likely!

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

Can we even imagine thinking we were serving YHWH our whole lives’ and hear Him tell us we inherited lies and were workers of Lawlessness (Torahlessness)- that He never knew us and to depart from us; that we actually were disobedient following pagan traditions we inherited? This experience would and will cause many to go screaming in horror, weeping and gnashing of teeth, into the flames of hell!  Oh Yah- Change us NOW! Reveal your TRUTH to us that we may be pleasing in your sight! Nothing is too hard for you YHWH! You are family (LOVED ONES) if you are humble enough to be a truth searcher. One who desires truth and obedience to your Creator- more than you want acceptance from men and their traditions.

This group would include us who are willing to pick up our burial stake and follow Him. Why do I use burial stake? Because you and I must be willing to decrease as He increases in us. He changes not and that only leaves you and I to do the changing, Yahshua put it like this:  (Matthew 16:24)  Then said Yahshua to his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. (Matthew 16:25)  For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. (Matthew 16:26)  For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

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

Let’s get hungry for more of Him and less of us- I suspect we will be most happy not to hear these words from Yahshua!

(Mat 15:7)  “Hypocrites! Yeshayahu rightly prophesied about you, saying, (Mat 15:8)  This people draw near to Me with their mouth, and respect Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. (Mat 15:9)  But in vain do they worship Me, teaching as teachings the commands of men.’1 Footnote: 1Isa. 29:13, Mk. 7:7, 2 Ki. 17:19.

Thanksgiving is our theme for this week- Approaching YHWH and entering His presence! Also realize that if you are in great warfare- enter His gates (Doorway) giving thanks- remember the old song- “Count your blessings, count them one by one, count your many blessings see what YHWH’s done and then PRAISE HIM as demon spirits cannot hang around and get you down when He is present! Hallelu-YAH! (Psalmslm 22:2) O My Elohim, I call by day, but you do not answer; and by night, but I find no rest. (Psalmslm 22:3)  Yet you are set-apart, Enthroned on the praises of Yisra’ĕl. KJV uses inhabits…

Psalms_100:4 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him; bless His Name. Psalms_105:1 Give thanks to יהוה!

Hey Loved One- just reading these will bless you with His presence! Hallelu-YAH!

2Sa_22:50 “Therefore I give thanks to You, O יהוה, among nations, And I sing praise to Your Name.   1Ch_16:8 Give thanks to יהוה, call upon His Name, and make known His deeds among the peoples! 1Ch_16:34 Give thanks to יהוה, for He is good, for His kindness is everlasting!  2Ch_7:3 and all the children of Yisra’ĕl saw how the fire came down, and the esteem of יהוה on the House, and they bowed their faces to the ground on the pavement, and did obeisance and gave thanks to יהוה, saying, “For He is good, for His kindness is everlasting.”  2Ch_7:6  And the priests were standing over their duties, and the Lĕwites with instruments of the song to יהוה, which Sovereign Dawiḏ had made to give thanks to יהוה, saying, “For His kindness is everlasting,” whenever Dawiḏ praised by their hand. And the priests were blowing trumpets before them, and all Yisra’ĕl were standing. 2Ch_20:21  And after consulting with the people, he appointed those who should sing to יהוה, and who should praise the splendor of set-apartness, as they went out before the army and were saying, “Give thanks to יהוה, for His kindness is everlasting.”  2Ch_31:2  And Ḥizqiyahu appointed the divisions of the priests and of the Lĕwites according to their divisions, each according to his service of the priests and Lĕwites for burnt offerings and peace offerings, to serve and to give thanks, and to praise in the gates of the camp of יהוה. Ezr_3:11 and they responded by praising and giving thanks to יהוה, “For He is good, for His kindness towards Yisra’ĕl is forever.” And all the people shouted with a great shout, when they praised יהוה, because the foundation of the House of יהוה was laid.

Psalms_18:49 Therefore I give thanks to You, O יהוה, among nations, and I sing praise to Your Name, Psalms_30:4 Sing praise to יהוה, you kind ones of His, and give thanks at the remembrance of His Set-apartness.  Psalms_35:18 I give you thanksgiving in the great assembly; I praise you among a mighty people.

Your wonders shall be declared!  Psalms_79:13 and we, your people and the sheep of your pasture, we give thanks to you forever; From generation to generation we show forth Your praise. Psalms_92:1  It is good to give thanks to יהוה, And to sing praises to Your Name, O Most High; Psalms_97:12  Rejoice in יהוה, you righteous, And give thanks at the remembrance of His Set-apartness. Psalms_107:8 Let them give thanks to יהוה for His kindness, And His wonders to the children of men!  Psalms_119:62 at midnight I rise to give thanks to You, For Your righteous right-rulings. Psalms_122:4 Where the tribes have come up, the tribes of Yah, A witness to Yisra’ĕl, to give thanks to the Name of יהוה. Psalms_136:1 Give thanks to יהוה, for He is good! For His kindness is everlasting. 1Co_15:57 but thanks to Elohim who gives us the overcoming through our Master יהושע Messiah.  1Th_5:18 in all circumstances give thanks, for this is the desire of Elohim in Messiah יהושע for you.  Heb_13:15  Through Him then, let us continually offer up a slaughter offering of praise to Elohim, that is, the fruit of our lips,1 giving thanks to His Name. Footnote: 1Or “bulls of our lips” - See Hosh. 14:2.  Rev_4:9  And when the living creatures give esteem and respect and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, who lives forever and ever, Rev_11:17  saying, “We give you thanks, O יהוה Ěl Shaddai, the One who is and who was and who is coming, because You have taken Your great power and reigned.

With thankful hearts- which are counting our blessings one by one- let’s turn our hearts and minds to this week’s Torah portion Loved Ones!

Here are this Week’s Torah Scriptures:  BechukotaiIn My Statutes”

Leviticus 26:3- 27:34; Jeremiah 16:19-17:14; 2 Corinthians 6:14-18

Promises guaranteed by the Creator for obeying Him and curses guaranteed for disobeying Him! This applies to many countries including our beloved USA- Note how the correction and punishment highlights are serious in length.

(Lev 26:3)  ‘If you walk in my laws and guard my commands, and shall do them, (Lev 26:4) then I shall give you rain in its season, and the land shall yield its crops, and the trees of the field yield their fruit. (Lev 26:5)  And your threshing shall last till the time of the grape harvest and the grape harvest shall last till the time of sowing. And you shall eat your bread until you have enough, and shall dwell in your land safely. (Lev 26:6)  And I shall give peace in the land, and you shall lie down and no one make you afraid. And I shall clear the land of evil beasts, and not let the sword go through your land. (Lev 26:7)  ‘And you shall pursue your enemies, and they shall fall by the sword before you. (Lev 26:8)  And five of you shall pursue a hundred, and a hundred of you pursue ten thousand. And your enemies shall fall by the sword before you. (Lev 26:9)  ‘And I shall turn to you and make you bear fruit, and shall increase you, and shall establish my covenant with you. (Lev 26:10)  And you shall eat the old supply, and clear out the old because of the new. (Lev 26:11)  And I shall set My Dwelling Place in your midst, and my being shall not reject you. (Lev 26:12)  And I shall walk in your midst, and shall be your Elohim, and you shall be my people. (Lev 26:13)  ‘I am יהוה your Elohim, who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, from being their slaves. And I have broken the bars of your yoke and made you walk upright. (Lev 26:14)  ‘But if you do not obey Me, and do not do all these commands, (Lev 26:15) and if you reject My laws, or if your being loathes My right-rulings, so that you do not do all My commands, but break My covenant, (Lev 26:16) I also do this to you: And I shall appoint sudden alarm over you, wasting disease and inflammation, destroying the eyes, and consuming the life. And you shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it. (Lev 26:17)  ‘And I shall set my face against you, and you shall be smitten before your enemies. And those who hate you shall rule over you, and you shall flee when no one pursues you. (Lev 26:18)  ‘And after all this, if you do not obey me, then I shall punish you seven times more for your sins. (Lev 26:19)  ‘And I shall break the pride of your power, and shall make your heavens like iron and your earth like bronze. (Lev 26:20)  ‘And your strength shall be spent in vain and your land will not yield its crops, nor do the trees of the land yield their fruit. (Lev 26:21)  ‘And if you walk contrary to me, and refuse to obey Me, I shall bring on you seven times more plagues, according to your sins, (Lev 26:22)  and send wild beasts among you, which shall bereave you of your children. And I shall cut off your livestock, and make you few in number, and your highways shall be deserted. (Lev 26:23)  ‘And if you are not instructed by me by these, but walk contrary to me, (Lev 26:24)  then I also shall walk contrary to you, and I myself shall smite you seven times for your sins. (Lev 26:25)  ‘And I shall bring against you a sword executing the vengeance of my covenant, and you shall gather together in your cities, and I shall send pestilence among you, and you shall be given into the hand of the enemy. (Lev 26:26)  When I have cut off your supply of bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall bring back to you your bread by weight and you shall eat and not be satisfied. (Lev 26:27)  And if in spite of this, you do not obey me, but walk contrary to me, (Lev 26:28)  then I shall walk contrary to you in wrath. And I myself shall punish you seven times for your sins. (Lev 26:29)  And you shall eat the flesh of your sons, and eat the flesh of your daughters. (Lev 26:30)  And I shall destroy your high places, and cut down your sun-pillars, and put your carcasses on the carcasses of your idols. And my being shall loathe you. (Lev 26:31)  ‘And I shall turn your cities into ruins and lay your set-apart places waste, and not smell your sweet fragrances. (Lev 26:32)  And I shall lay the land waste, and your enemies who dwell in it shall be astonished at it. (Lev 26:33)  ‘And I shall scatter you among the gentiles and draw out a sword after you. And your land shall be desert and your cities ruins, (Lev 26:34) and the land enjoy its Sabbaths as long as it lays waste and you are in your enemies’ land. Then the land would rest and enjoy its Sabbaths. (Lev 26:35)  ‘As long as it lays waste it rests, for the time it did not rest on your Sabbaths when you dwelt in it. (Lev 26:36)  ‘And as for those of you who are left, I shall send faintness into their hearts in the lands of their enemies, and the sound of a shaken leaf shall cause them to flee. And they shall flee as though retreating from a sword, and they shall fall when no one pursues. (Lev 26:37)  ‘And they shall stumble over one another, as from before a sword, when no one pursues. And you shall be unable to stand before your enemies. (Lev 26:38)  ‘And you shall perish among the gentiles, (Heathen) and the land of your enemies shall eat you up, (Lev 26:39)  and those of you who are left rot away in their crookedness in your enemies’ lands, and also in their fathers’ crookednesses rot away with them. (Lev 26:40)  But if they confess their crookedness and the crookedness of their fathers, with their trespass in which they trespassed against me, and that they also have walked contrary to me, (Lev 26:41)  and that I also have walked contrary to them and have brought them into the land of their enemies – if their uncircumcised heart is then humbled, and they accept the punishment of their crookedness, (Lev 26:42)  then I shall remember my covenant with Yaʽaqoḇ, and also my covenant with Yitsḥaq, and also remember my covenant with Aḇraham, and remember the land. (Lev 26:43)  ‘For the land was abandoned by them, and enjoying its Sabbaths while lying waste without them, and they were paying for their crookedness, because they rejected my right-rulings and because their being loathed my laws. (Lev 26:44)  ‘And yet for all this, when they are in the land of their enemies, I shall not reject them, nor shall I loathe them so as to destroy them and break my covenant with them. I am יהוה their Elohim. (Lev 26:45)  ‘Then I shall remember for their sake the covenant of the ancestors whom I brought out of the land of Mitsrayim before the eyes of the nations to be their Elohim. I am יהוה.’  (Lev 26:46)  These are the laws and the right-rulings and the Torot1 which יהוה made between Himself and the children of Yisra’ĕl on Mount Sinai by the hand of Mosheh. Footnote: 1Torot - plural of Torah, teaching.

The tithe of the INCREASE belongs to YHWH!

(Lev 27:1)  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Lev 27:2) “Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, and say to them, ‘When a man separates a vow, by your evaluation of lives unto יהוה, (Lev 27:3) when your evaluation is of a male from twenty years old up to sixty years old, then your evaluation shall be fifty sheqels of silver, according to the sheqel of the set-apart place. (Lev 27:4)  ‘And if it is a female, then your evaluation shall be thirty sheqels; (Lev 27:5)  and if from five years old up to twenty years old, then your evaluation for a male shall be twenty sheqels, and for a female ten sheqels; (Lev 27:6)  and if from a month old up to five years old, then your evaluation for a male shall be five sheqels of silver, and for a female your evaluation shall be three sheqels of silver; (Lev 27:7)  and if from sixty years old and above, if it is a male, then your evaluation shall be fifteen sheqels, and for a female ten sheqels. (Lev 27:8)  ‘But if he is too poor to pay your evaluation, then he shall present himself before the priest, and the priest shall set a value for him. According to the ability of him who vowed, the priest shall value him. (Lev 27:9)  ‘And if it is a beast of which they bring an offering to יהוה, all such given to יהוה is set-apart. (Lev 27:10)  ‘He is not to replace it or exchange it, well for spoilt or spoilt for good. And if he at all exchanges beast for beast, then both it and the one exchanged for it is set-apart. (Lev 27:11)  ‘And if it is any unclean beast of which they do not bring an offering to יהוה, then he shall present the beast before the priest; (Lev 27:12)  and the priest shall value it, whether it is good or spoilt. According to your evaluation, O priest, so it shall be. (Lev 27:13)  ‘But if he indeed redeems it, then he shall add one-fifth to your evaluation. (Lev 27:14)  ‘And when a man sets his house apart, to be set-apart to יהוה, then the priest shall value it, whether it is good or spoilt. As the priest values it, so it stands. (Lev 27:15)  ‘And if he who sets it apart does redeem his house, then he shall add one-fifth of the silver of your evaluation to it, and it shall be his. (Lev 27:16)  ‘And if a man sets apart to יהוה a field he owns, then your evaluation shall be according to the seed for it – a ḥomer of barley seed at fifty sheqels of silver. (Lev 27:17)  ‘If he sets his field apart from the Year of Jubilee, according to your evaluation it stands. (Lev 27:18)  ‘But if he sets his field apart after the Jubilee, then the priest shall reckon to him the silver due according to the years that remain till the Year of Jubilee, and it shall be deducted from your evaluation. (Lev 27:19)  ‘And if he who sets the field apart ever wishes to redeem it, then he shall add one-fifth of the silver of your evaluation to it, and it shall be his. (Lev 27:20)  ‘And if he does not redeem the field, or if he has sold the field to another man, it is no longer redeemed, (Lev 27:21) but the field, when it is released in the Jubilee, is set-apart to יהוה as a dedicated field, to be the possession of the priest. (Lev 27:22)  ‘And if a man sets apart to יהוה a field which he has bought, which is not the field of his possession, (Lev 27:23)  then the priest shall reckon to him the amount of your evaluation, up to the Year of Jubilee, and he shall give your evaluation on that day, set-apart to יהוה. (Lev 27:24)  ‘In the Year of Jubilee the field returns to him from whom he bought it, to him whose is the possession of the land. (Lev 27:25)  ‘And all your evaluations is to be according to the sheqel of the set-apart place: twenty gĕrahs to the sheqel. (Lev 27:26)  ‘However, a first-born of the beasts, which is first-born to יהוה, no man sets it apart – whether bull or sheep, it belongs to יהוה. (Lev 27:27)  ‘And if among the unclean beasts, then he shall ransom it according to your evaluation, and shall add one-fifth to it. And if it is not redeemed, then it shall be sold according to your evaluation. (Lev 27:28)  ‘However, whatever a man lays under ban for יהוה of all that he has, man and beast, or the field of his possession, is not sold or redeemed. Whatever is laid under ban is most set-apart to יהוה. (Lev 27:29)  ‘No one under the ban, under the ban among men, is ransomed, but shall certainly be put to death. (Lev 27:30)  ‘And all the tithe of the land – of the seed of the land or of the fruit of the tree – belongs to יהוה. It is set-apart to יהוה. (Lev 27:31)  ‘If a man indeed redeems any of his tithes, he adds one-fifth to it. (Lev 27:32)  ‘And the entire tithe of the herd and of the flock all that passes under the rod, the tenth one is set-apart to יהוה. (Lev 27:33)  ‘He does not inquire whether it is good or spoilt, nor does he exchange it. And if he exchanges it at all, then both it and the one exchanged for it are set-apart, it is not redeemed.’ ” (Lev 27:34) these are the commands which יהוה commanded Mosheh for the children of Yisra’ĕl on Mount Sinai.

We read this Scripture last week also! Might be some more “traditions” we need to depart from!
Knowing His name seems to be more important than many would have us believe!

(Jeremiah 16:19)  O יהוה, my strength and my stronghold and my refuge, in the day of distress the gentiles shall come to you from the ends of the earth and say, Our fathers have inherited only falsehood, futility, and there is no value in them.”1 Footnote: 1See Ps. 147:19, Isa. 2:3, Isa. 60:2-3, John 4:22, Rom. 2:20, Rom. 3:2, Rom. 9:4. (Jeremiah 16:20)  Would a man make mighty ones for himself, which are not mighty ones? (Jeremiah 16:21)  “Therefore see, I am causing them to know, this time I cause them to know my hand and my might. And they shall know that My Name is יהוה!” (Jeremiah 17:1)  “The sin of Yehuḏah is written with a pen of iron, engraved with the point of a diamond on the tablet of their heart, and on the horns of your altars, (Jeremiah 17:2)  while their children remember their altars and their Ashĕrim by the spreading trees on the high hills. (Jeremiah 17:3)  “My mountain in the field, I give as plunder your wealth, all your treasures, your high places of sin, throughout all your borders. (Jeremiah 17:4)  “And you, even of yourself, shall let go of your inheritance which I gave you. And I shall make you serve your enemies in a land which you have not known, for you have kindled a fire in my displeasure which burns forever.” (Jeremiah 17:5)  Thus said יהוה, “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his arm, and whose heart turns away from יהוה. (Jeremiah 17:6)  “For he shall be like a shrub in the desert, and not see when good comes, and shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, a salt land that is not inhabited. (Jeremiah 17:7)  “Blessed is the man who trusts in יהוה, and whose trust is יהוה. (Jeremiah 17:8)  For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spreads out its roots by the river, and does not see when heat comes. And his leaf shall be green, and in the year of drought he is not anxious, nor does he cease from yielding fruit. (Jeremiah 17:9)  “The heart is crooked1 above all, and desperately sick – who shall know it? Footnote: 1See 7:24, 16:12, 18:12, 23:17. (Jeremiah 17:10)  “I, יהוה, search the heart; I try the kidneys, and give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds. (Jeremiah 17:11)  “As a partridge that broods but does not hatch; so is he who gets riches, not by righteousness. It leaves him in the midst of his days, and at his end he is a fool.” (Jeremiah 17:12)  An esteemed throne, exalted from the beginning, is the place of our set-apart place. (Jeremiah 17:13)  O יהוה, the expectation of Yisra’ĕl, all who forsake you are put to shame. “Those who depart from me shall be written in the earth, because they have forsaken יהוה, the fountain of living waters.”1 Footnote: 1See 2:13. (Jeremiah 17:14)  Heal me, O יהוה, so that I am healed. Save me, so that I am saved, for you are my praise.

Hey this is not instructions for just marriage- but also friends, associates- etc. ---

(2Co 6:14)  Do not become unevenly yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness? And what fellowship has light with darkness? (2Co 6:15)  And what agreement has Messiah with Beliyaʽal? Or what part does a believer have with an unbeliever? (2Co 6:16)  And what union has the Dwelling Place of Elohim with idols? You are a Dwelling Place of the living Elohim, as Elohim has said, “I shall dwell in them and walk among them, and I shall be their Elohim, and they shall be my people.”

Perhaps we should really pay attention to what YHWH describes through Moses and the Prophets what is CLEAN and UNCLEAN!

 (2Co 6:17)  Therefore, “Come out from among them and be separate, says יהוה, and do not touch what is unclean, and I shall receive you. (2Co 6:18)  “And I shall be a Father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to me, says יהוה the Almighty.”

Loved One- my prayer for you and your loved ones is simple. That you spend time with those you love most, and this includes (hopefully) your coming King! Further, that you have the opportunity to give thanks to Him who gives you breath, that He will direct you, protect you, provide for you and use you mightily to produce fruit (more brothers and sisters) for His Kingdom- especially since we all know our time is temporary here- also that you are a light and a witness to those not yet “sold out” to obedience to YHWH that brings blessings not curses. We know that legalism is obeying man made and added commands and pagan holidays and obeying Him always brings blessings and is called OBEDIENCE!

May you and your loved ones have a joy filled, peace filled, abundant HAPPY THANKSGIVING with all the trimmings and loved ones your heart desires!

Shalom to your home loved one,
