Hebraically speaking, IF we REALLY BELIEVE IN HIM – (believe what He says) we will DO what He says! Goodness- IF the works of hell are headed our way? SO WHAT! He really will help us and deliver us from all the works of hell! We are overcomers and willing to stop LISTEN and OBEY!

(John 14:12)  “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in me, the works that I do he shall do also. And greater works than these he shall do, because I go to My Father. (John 14:13)  Whatever you ask in My Name, that I shall do, in order that the Father might be esteemed in the Son. (John 14:14)  “If you ask whatever in My Name, I shall do it. (John 14:15)  If you love me, you shall guard my commands.1 Footnote: 1See Ex. 20:6, vv. 21&23, 1 John 5:2-3, 2 John v. 6. (John 14:16)  “And I shall ask the Father, and He shall give you another Helper, to stay with you forever – (John 14:17) the Spirit of the Truth, whom the world is unable to receive, because it does not see Him or know Him. But you know Him, for He stays with you and shall be in you. (John 14:18)  “I shall not leave you orphans – I am coming to you. (John 14:19)  “Yet a little while, and the world no longer sees me, but you shall see me, because I live, and you shall live. (John 14:20)  “In that day you shall know that I am in My Father and you in me, and I in you. (John 14:21)  He who possesses my commands and guards them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves me shall be loved by My Father, and I shall love him and manifest myself to him.”

Have we missed it? MOST LIKELY!

(Isa 1:18)  Come now, and let us reason together,” says יהוה. “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 1:19)  “If you submit and obey (willing and obedient), you shall eat the good of the land; (Isa 1:20) but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword,” the mouth of יהוה has spoken.
We become LESS and He becomes MORE of us! As we receive the engrafted Word of Life by submitting (receiving) - we become DOERS of the Word and not hearers only! We change and become more like our King and Savior. Then we are not so easily deceived. (James 4:7)  So then subject yourselves to Elohim. Resist the devil1 and he shall flee from you. Footnote: 1Or adversary. (James 4:8)  Draw near to Elohim and He shall draw near to you. Cleanse hands, sinners. And cleanse the hearts, you double-minded! This shows our maturity as we yield our tongues to the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) and He directs us. As He directs us more and more we can become more assured of our destiny and purpose and FEAR NOT!

Still got a Christmas tree? Obedience is still better than all our sacrifices- Do we want to avoid Him rejecting us? Come out from her my people OR partake in her plagues…

(1Sa 15:22)  Then Shemu’ĕl said, “Does יהוה delight in burnt offerings and slaughterings, as in obeying the voice of יהוה? Look, to obey is better than an offering, to heed is better than the fat of rams. (1Sa 15:23)  “For rebellion is as the sin of divination (witchcraft), and stubbornness is as wickedness and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of יהוה, He also does reject you as sovereign.”

Let’s not our customs be worthless before YHWH!

(Jeremiah 10:1)  Hear the word which יהוה speaks to you, O house of Yisra’ĕl. (Jeremiah 10:2)  Thus said יהוה, Do not learn the way of the gentiles (pagan-heathen), 1 and do not be awed by the signs of the heavens, for the gentiles are awed by them.2 Footnotes: 1Lev. 18:3, Dt. 12:30 & 18:9, Ezek. 11:12 & 20:32, Eph. 4:17, 1 Peter 4:3. 2Dt. 4:19 & 17:3. (Jeremiah 10:3) For the prescribed customs of these peoples are worthless, for one cuts a tree from the forest, work for the hands of a craftsman with a cutting tool. (Jeremiah 10:4)  “They adorn it with silver and gold; they fasten it with nails and hammers so that it does not topple.

Perhaps we should memorize some “HELP US” Scriptures! (Psalm 91 comes to mind!)

Our tongue will direct our lives; IF we remain stubborn and not allow Him to control us- it will lead us to destruction! If we submit we gain His SHALOM as He directs us! Hallelu-YAH! He IS the Prince of Shalom! This is evident in the 2 spies GOOD REPORT (Yah’s word) VS the 10 spies Evil factual report in today’s Torah portion! Yes- especially for us today there are giants in the land but we will believe and SPEAK AGREEMENT WITH OUR KING!

(James 3:2)  For we all stumble in many matters. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect (mature) man, able also to bridle the entire body. (James 3:3)  Look, we put bits in the mouths of horses, for them to obey us, and we turn their body. (James 3:4)  Look at the ships too: although they are so big and are driven by strong winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot intends. (James 3:5)  So too the tongue is a little member, yet boasts greatly. See how a little fire kindles a great forest! (James 3:6)  And the tongue is a fire, the world of unrighteousness. Among our members the tongue is set, the one defiling the entire body, and setting on fire the wheel of life, and it is set on fire by Gehenna (Hell).

We need His Shalom (Peace) NOW! (If we find ourselves fearful watching world events unfurl perhaps we need to spend more time in the Scriptures getting to know more intimately our loving Creator who has ALL power and laughs at the wicked men raging against Him- He holds them in derision- not us who love Him and want to obey Him- Eyes focused on Him- FEAR NOT!
Here are this Week’s Torah Scriptures:  Korach Korah”

Numbers 16:1-18:32;  1 Samuel 11:14-12:25;  Hebrews Chapter 3;  Jude 1:9-23; Revelation 12:13-17

Goodness Loved One- see what self-exaltation and pride brings- A FALL!

(Numbers 16:1)  And Qoraḥ, son of Yitshar, son of Qehath, son of Lĕwi, took both Dathan and Aḇiram the sons of Eliyaḇ, and On, son of Peleth, sons of Re’uḇĕn, (Numbers 16:2) and they rose up before Mosheh with some of the children of Yisra’ĕl, two hundred and fifty leaders of the congregation, called ones of the meeting, men of name. (Numbers 16:3)  And they assembled against Mosheh and against Aharon, and said to them, “Enough of you! For the entire congregation is set-apart, all of them, and יהוה is in their midst. Why then do you lift up yourselves above the assembly of יהוה?” (Numbers 16:4)  And when Mosheh heard, he fell on his face, (Numbers 16:5) and spoke to Qoraḥ and all his company, saying, “Tomorrow morning יהוה shall make known who is His and who is set-apart, and bring him near to Him. And let Him bring near to Him the one whom He chooses. (Numbers 16:6)  “Do this: Take fire holders, Qoraḥ and all your company, (Numbers 16:7) and put fire in them and put incense in them before יהוה tomorrow. And it shall be that the one whom יהוה chooses is the set-apart one. Enough of you- sons of Lĕwi!” (Numbers 16:8)  And Mosheh said to Qoraḥ, “Hear now, you sons of Lĕwi: (Numbers 16:9)  “Is it little to you that the Elohim of Yisra’ĕl has separated you from the congregation of Yisra’ĕl, to bring you near to Himself, to perform the service of the Dwelling Place of יהוה, and to stand before the congregation to serve them, (Numbers 16:10)  and that He has brought you near to Himself, you and all your brothers, the sons of Lĕwi, with you? Yet you seek the priesthood as well? (Numbers 16:11)  “Therefore you and all your company are set against יהוה. And Aharon, what is he that you grumble against him?” (Numbers 16:12)  And Mosheh sent to call Dathan and Aḇiram the sons of Eliyaḇ, but they said, “We are not coming up! (Numbers 16:13)  “Is it little that you have brought us up out of a land flowing with milk and honey, to kill us in the wilderness, that you would also seize total rule over us? (Numbers 16:14)  “Also, you have not brought us into a land flowing with milk and honey, nor given us inheritance of fields and vineyards. Would you bore out the eyes of these men? We are not coming up!”

Moses makes His plea for JUSTICE before the Father of Lights! Korah makes his plea to the people!

(Numbers 16:15)  And Mosheh became very displeased, and said to יהוה, “Do not respect their offering. I have not taken one donkey from them, nor have I done harm to any of them.” (Numbers 16:16)  Then Mosheh said to Qoraḥ, “Tomorrow, you and all your company shall be there before יהוה, you, them and Aharon. (Numbers 16:17)  “And take each one his fire holder, and you shall put incense in it. And let each one bring his fire holder before יהוה, two hundred and fifty fire holders, and you and Aharon, each one with his fire holder.” (Numbers 16:18)  So each one took his fire holder, and put fire in it, and laid incense on it, and stood at the door of the Tent of Meeting with Mosheh and Aharon. (Numbers 16:19)  And Qoraḥ assembled the entire congregation against them at the door of the Tent of Meeting. Then the esteem (Glory) of יהוה appeared to the entire congregation.

YHWH will have the FINAL ANSWER- yes even in your plea for justice! Note YHWH’s Judgment-

(Numbers 16:20)  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, and to Aharon, saying, (Numbers 16:21) “Separate yourselves from the midst of this congregation, and let me consume them in a moment.” (Numbers 16:22)  But they fell on their faces, and said, “O Ěl, Elohim of the spirits of all flesh! When one man sins, are you wroth with the entire congregation?” (Numbers 16:23)  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Numbers 16:24) “Speak to the congregation, saying; ‘Move away from around the tents of Qoraḥ, Dathan, and Aḇiram.’ ” (Numbers 16:25) So Mosheh rose up and went to Dathan and Aḇiram, and the elders of Yisra’ĕl followed him. (Numbers 16:26)  And he spoke to the congregation, saying, “Please turn away from the tents of these wrong men! Do not touch whatever belongs to them, lest you be consumed in all their sins.” (Numbers 16:27)  Then they moved away from around the tents of Qoraḥ, Dathan, and Aḇiram. And Dathan and Aḇiram came out and stood at the door of their tents, with their wives, and their sons, and their little children. (Numbers 16:28)  And Mosheh said, “By this you know that יהוה has sent me to do all these works that they are not from my own heart. (Numbers 16:29)  “If these die as all men do, or if they are visited as all men are visited, then יהוה has not sent me. (Numbers 16:30)  But if יהוה creates what is unheard of, and the earth opens its mouth and swallows them up with all that belongs to them, and they go down alive into the grave, then you shall know that these men have scorned יהוה.”
(Numbers 16:31)  And it came to be, as he ended speaking all these words, that the ground under them split apart, (Numbers 16:32) and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them up, with their households and all the men with Qoraḥ, with all their goods. (Numbers 16:33)  So they and all those with them went down alive into the grave, and the earth closed over them, and they perished from the midst of the assembly.

This judgment put the FEAR of YHWH (Not the devil and his men) into everyone- We can expect the same! Remember these Scriptures are the shadow picture of good things to come! Hallelu-YAH!

(Numbers 16:34)  And all Yisra’ĕl who were round about them fled at their cry, for they said, “Lest the earth swallow us up!(Numbers 16:35)  And a fire came out from יהוה and consumed the two hundred and fifty men who were offering incense. (Numbers 16:36)  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Numbers 16:37)  “Say to Elʽazar, son of Aharon the priest, to pick up the fire holders out of the blaze, for they are set-apart, and scatter the fire some distance away. (Numbers 16:38)  “The fire holders of these men, who sinned against their own lives, let them be made into beaten plates as a covering for the altar. Because they brought them before יהוה, therefore they are set-apart. And let them become a sign to the children of Yisra’ĕl.” (Numbers 16:39)  And Elʽazar the priest took the bronze fire holders, which those who were burned up had brought, and they were beaten out as a covering on the altar – (Numbers 16:40) a remembrance to the children of Yisra’ĕl that no stranger who is not of the seed of Aharon, should come near to offer incense before יהוה, and not be like Qoraḥ and his company – as יהוה had said to him through Mosheh.

There will be those in our assemblies of believers in the DAYS OF JACOB’S TROUBLES that will rebel- complain and murmur and receive YHWH’s judgment also- our goal is to not be among them!  Please NOTE- the love of Moses and Aaron for the people and their interceding for them-

(Numbers 16:41)  But all the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl grumbled against Mosheh and against Aharon on the next day, saying, “You, you have killed the people of יהוה.” (Numbers 16:42)  And it came to be, when the congregation assembled against Mosheh and against Aharon, that they turned toward the Tent of Meeting. And see, the cloud covered it, and the esteem of יהוה appeared. (Numbers 16:43)  And Mosheh and Aharon came before the Tent of Meeting. (Numbers 16:44)  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Numbers 16:45) “Arise from amidst this congregation, and let me consume them in a moment.” And they fell on their faces. (Numbers 16:46)  So Mosheh said to Aharon, “Take the fire holder and put fire in it from the altar, and lay incense on, and go, hurry to the congregation and make atonement for them, for wrath has gone out from יהוה, the plague has begun.” (Numbers 16:47)  And Aharon took it as Mosheh commanded, and ran into the midst of the assembly, and saw that the plague had begun among the people. And he laid on the incense and made atonement for the people, (Numbers 16:48) and stood between the dead and the living. And the plague was stopped. (Numbers 16:49)  And those who died in the plague were fourteen thousand seven hundred, besides those who died on account of Qoraḥ. (Numbers 16:50)  Then Aharon returned to Mosheh at the door of the Tent of Meeting, for the plague had stopped.

YHWH’s Instructions come from RELATIONSHIP!

(Numbers 17:1)  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Numbers 17:2) “Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, and take from them a rod from each father’s house, all their leaders according to their fathers’ houses, twelve rods. Write each one’s name on his rod, (Numbers 17:3) and write Aharon’s name on the rod of Lĕwi, for there is one rod for the head of each father’s house. (Numbers 17:4)  “You shall then place them in the Tent of Meeting before the Witness, where I meet with you. (Numbers 17:5)  “And it shall be that the rod of the man whom I choose buds, and I shall rid myself of the grumblings of the children of Yisra’ĕl, which they grumble against you.” (Numbers 17:6)  And Mosheh spoke to the children of Yisra’ĕl, and all their leaders gave him a rod each, for each leader according to their fathers’ houses, twelve rods. And the rod of Aharon was among their rods. (Numbers 17:7)  So Mosheh placed the rods before יהוה in the Tent of the Witness. (Numbers 17:8)  And it came to be on the next day that Mosheh went into the Tent of the Witness and saw that the rod of Aharon, of the house of Lĕwi, had budded, and brought forth buds, and blossomed and bore ripe almonds. (Numbers 17:9)  And Mosheh brought out all the rods from before יהוה to all the children of Yisra’ĕl. And they looked, and each man took his rod. (Numbers 17:10)  And יהוה said to Mosheh, “Bring Aharon’s rod back before the Witness, to be kept as a sign against the rebels, so that you put an end to their grumblings against me, lest they die.” (Numbers 17:11)  And Mosheh did as יהוה had commanded him, so he did. (Numbers 17:12)  And the children of Yisra’ĕl spoke to Mosheh, saying, “See, we shall die, we shall perish, we shall all perish! (Numbers 17:13)  “Anyone who comes near the Dwelling Place of יהוה dies. Shall we be consumed – to die?”

Guarding our Royal Priesthood!

(Numbers 18:1)  And יהוה said to Aharon, “You and your sons and your father’s house with you are to bear the crookedness against the set-apart place, and you and your sons with you are to bear the crookedness against your priesthood. (Numbers 18:2)  “But bring with you your brothers of the tribe of Lĕwi too, the tribe of your father to join you and serve you while you and your sons are with you before the Tent of the Witness. (Numbers 18:3)  “And they shall guard your charge, and the duty of the entire Tent, but they do not come near the furnishings of the set-apart place and the altar, lest they die, both they and you. (Numbers 18:4)  “And they shall be joined with you and guard the duty to the Tent of Meeting, for all the service of the Tent, but a stranger does not come near you. (Numbers 18:5)  “And you shall guard the duty of the set-apart place and the duty of the altar, so that there be no more wrath on the children of Yisra’ĕl. (Numbers 18:6)  “And see, I myself have taken your brothers the Lĕwites from the midst of the children of Yisra’ĕl – a gift to you, given by יהוה, to do the service of the Tent of Meeting. (Numbers 18:7)  “But you and your sons with you are to guard your priesthood for all matters at the altar and behind the veil, and you shall serve. I have given you the priesthood as a gift for service, but the stranger who comes near is put to death.” (Numbers 18:8)  And יהוה spoke to Aharon, “And see, I myself have also given you the charge of my contributions, all the set-apart gifts of the children of Yisra’ĕl. I have given them to you for the anointing, and to your sons, as a law forever. (Numbers 18:9)  “This is yours of the most set-apart gifts, from the fire: all their offerings, all their grain offerings and all their sin offerings and all their guilt offerings which they render to me, are most set-apart for you and your sons. (Numbers 18:10)  “Eat it in the most set-apart place – every male eats it. It is set-apart to you. (Numbers 18:11)  “This also is yours: the contribution of their gift, with all the wave offerings of the children of Yisra’ĕl. I have given them to you, and your sons and daughters with you, as a law forever. Everyone who is clean in your house eats it. (Numbers 18:12)  “All the best of the oil, and all the best of the new wine and the grain – their first-fruits which they give to יהוה – I have given them to you. (Numbers 18:13)  “The first-fruits of all that is in their land, which they bring to יהוה, are yours. Everyone who is clean in your house eats it. (Numbers 18:14)  “All that is dedicated in Yisra’ĕl is yours. (Numbers 18:15)  “Everyone opening a womb of all flesh, which they bring to יהוה, whether man or beast, is yours. But the first-born of man you shall certainly ransom, and the first-born of the unclean beast you ransom. (Numbers 18:16)  “And ransom their ransomed ones when one month old, according to your valuation, five sheqels of silver, according to the sheqel of the set-apart place, which is twenty gĕrahs. (Numbers 18:17)  “But the first-born of a cow, or the first-born of a sheep, or the first-born of a goat you do not ransom, they are set-apart. Sprinkle their blood on the altar, and burn their fat as an offering made by fire for a sweet fragrance to יהוה. (Numbers 18:18)  “And their flesh is yours, as the wave breast and as the right thigh, it is yours. (Numbers 18:19)  “All the contributions of the set-apart gifts, which the children of Yisra’ĕl present to יהוה, I have given to you and your sons and daughters with you as a law forever. It is a covenant of salt forever before יהוה with you and your seed with you.” (Numbers 18:20)  And יהוה said to Aharon, “You are not to have an inheritance in their land, nor have any portion in their midst. I am your portion and your inheritance among the children of Yisra’ĕl. (Numbers 18:21)  “And see, I have given the children of Lĕwi all the tithes in Yisra’ĕl as an inheritance in return for the service which they are serving, the service of the Tent of Meeting. (Numbers 18:22)  “And let the children of Yisra’ĕl no more come near the Tent of Meeting, lest they bear sin and die, (Numbers 18:23) because the Lĕwites shall do the service of the Tent of Meeting, so they themselves bear their crookedness. A law forever, throughout your generations: that among the children of Yisra’ĕl they are to have no inheritance, (Numbers 18:24) but the tithes of the children of Yisra’ĕl, which they present as a contribution to יהוה, I have given to the Lĕwites as an inheritance. That is why I have said to them, ‘among the children of Yisra’ĕl they have no inheritance.’ ” (Numbers 18:25) And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Numbers 18:26)  “Speak to the Lĕwites and say to them, ‘When you take from the children of Yisra’ĕl the tithes which I have given you from them as your inheritance, then you shall present a contribution of it to יהוה, a tenth of the tithe. (Numbers 18:27)  ‘And your contribution shall be reckoned to you as grain from the threshing-floor and as filling from the winepress. (Numbers 18:28)  ‘Thus you also present a contribution unto יהוה from all your tithes which you receive from the children of Yisra’ĕl. And you shall give from it the contribution to יהוה to Aharon the priest. (Numbers 18:29)  ‘From all your gifts you present every contribution due to יהוה, from all the best of them, the set-apart part of them.’ (Numbers 18:30)  “And you shall say to them, ‘When you have presented the best of it, then the rest shall be reckoned to the Lĕwites as the yield of the threshing-floor and as the yield of the winepress. (Numbers 18:31)  ‘And you shall eat it in any place, you and your households, for it is your reward for your service in the Tent of Meeting, (Numbers 18:32)  and bear no sin because of it, when you have presented the best of it, and do not profane the set-apart gifts of the children of Yisra’ĕl, lest you die.’”

Walking righteously brings appointment and expectations (Usability) by YHWH- note his love to obey and pray for the people--

(1Sa 11:14)  And Shemu’ĕl said to the people, “Come, and let us go to Gilgal and renew the reign there.”   (1Sa 11:15) and all the people went to Gilgal, and there they set up Sha’ul to reign before יהוה in Gilgal, and there they made slaughterings of peace offerings before יהוה. And there Sha’ul rejoiced, and all the men of Yisra’ĕl, very greatly. 1Sa 12:1) And Shemu’ĕl said to all Yisra’ĕl, “Look, I have listened to your voice in all that you said to me, and have set a sovereign over you. (1Sa 12:2)  “And now, look, the sovereign is walking before you. And I am old and grey, and look, my sons are with you. And I have walked before you from my youth to this day. (1Sa 12:3)  “Look, here I am. Witness against me before יהוה and before His anointed: Whose ox have I taken, or whose donkey have I taken, or whom have I oppressed? Whom have I abused, or from whose hand have I received any bribe with which to blind my eyes? – then I restore it to you.” (1Sa 12:4)  And they said, “You have not oppressed us or abused us, nor have you taken any bribe from anyone’s hand.” (1Sa 12:5)  So he said to them, “יהוה is witness against you, and His anointed is witness today, that you have found naught in my hand.” And they answered, “He is witness.” (1Sa 12:6)  And Shemu’ĕl said to the people, “It is יהוה who appointed Mosheh and Aharon, and who brought your fathers up from the land of Mitsrayim. (1Sa 12:7)  “And now, stand still, so that I judge you before יהוה concerning all the righteous acts of יהוה which He did to you and your fathers: (1Sa 12:8) “When Yaʽaqoḇ had come to Mitsrayim, and your fathers cried out to יהוה, then יהוה sent Mosheh and Aharon, who brought your fathers out of Mitsrayim and made them dwell in this place. (1Sa 12:9)  “But they forgot יהוה their Elohim, so He sold them into the hand of Sisera, commander of the army of Ḥatsor, and into the hand of the Philistines, and into the hand of the sovereign of Mo’aḇ. And they fought against them. (1Sa 12:10)  “And they cried out to יהוה, and said, ‘We have sinned, because we have forsaken יהוה and served the Baʽals and the Ashtaroth. And now, deliver us from the hand of our enemies, and we serve you.’ (1Sa 12:11)  “And יהוה sent Yerubbaʽal, and Beḏan, and Yiphtaḥ, and Shemu’ĕl, and delivered you out of the hand of your enemies round about, and you dwelt in safety. (1Sa 12:12)  “And when you saw that Naḥash sovereign of the children of Ammon came against you, you said to me, ‘No, but let a sovereign reign over us,’ when יהוה your Elohim was your sovereign. (1Sa 12:13)  “And now, here is the sovereign whom you have chosen and whom you have asked. And see, יהוה has set a sovereign over you. (1Sa 12:14)  “If you fear יהוה, and shall serve Him and obey His voice, and not rebel against the command of יהוה, then both you and the sovereign who reigns over you shall follow יהוה your Elohim. (1Sa 12:15)  “But if you do not obey the voice of יהוה, and shall rebel against the command of יהוה, then the hand of יהוה shall be against you, as it was against your fathers. (1Sa 12:16)  “And now, stand and see this great matter which יהוה does before your eyes: (1Sa 12:17) “Is today not the wheat harvest? Let me call to יהוה, so that He sends thunder and rain – know then and see that your evil is great, which you have done in the eyes of יהוה, in asking for yourselves a sovereign.” (1Sa 12:18)  And Shemu’ĕl called to יהוה, and יהוה sent thunder and rain that day. And all the people greatly feared יהוה and Shemu’ĕl. (1Sa 12:19)  And all the people said to Shemu’ĕl, “Pray for your servants to יהוה your Elohim, that we do not die, for we have added to all our sins this evil of asking for ourselves a sovereign.” (1Sa 12:20)  And Shemu’ĕl said to the people, “Do not fear. You have done all this evil. Only, do not turn aside from following יהוה. And you shall serve יהוה with all your heart, (1Sa 12:21) and do not turn aside after worthless matters which do not profit or deliver, for they are worthless. (1Sa 12:22)  “For יהוה would not cast away His people, for His great Name’s sake, seeing it has pleased יהוה to make you His people. (1Sa 12:23)  “Also, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against יהוה in ceasing to pray for you, but I shall teach you the good and straight way. (1Sa 12:24)  Only fear יהוה, and you shall serve Him in truth with all your heart, for consider what marvels He has done for you. (1Sa 12:25)  “But if you persist in doing evil, both you and your sovereign are consumed.”

We must keep ourselves in an obedient and humble mode- keeping no offense- so we continue to hear His Instructions

(Hebrews 3:1)  Therefore, set-apart brothers, partakers of the heavenly calling, closely consider the Emissary and High Priest of our confession, Messiah יהושע, (Hebrews 3:2) who was trustworthy to Him who appointed Him, as also Mosheh in his entire house. (Hebrews 3:3)  For this one has been deemed worthy of more esteem than Mosheh, as much as He who built the house enjoys more respect than the house. (Hebrews 3:4)  Every house is built by someone, but He who built all is Elohim. (Hebrews 3:5)  And Mosheh indeed was trustworthy in his entire house as a servant, for a witness of what would be spoken later, (Hebrews 3:6)  but Messiah as a Son over His own house, whose house we are if we hold fast the boldness and the boasting of the expectation firm to the end. (Hebrews 3:7)  Therefore, as the Set-apart Spirit says, “Today, if you hear His voice, (Hebrews 3:8)  do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, in the day of trial in the wilderness, (Hebrews 3:9)  where your fathers tried Me, proved Me, and saw My works forty years. (Hebrews 3:10)  Therefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, ‘They always go astray in their heart, and they have not known my ways.’ (Hebrews 3:11)  “As I swore in my wrath, ‘If they shall enter into my rest...’ ”1 Footnote: 1Ps. 95:7-11. (Hebrews 3:12)  Look out, brothers, lest there be in any of you a wicked heart of unbelief in falling away from the living Elohim, (Hebrews 3:13)  but encourage one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened by the deceivableness of sin. (Hebrews 3:14)  For we have become partakers of Messiah if we hold fast the beginning of our trust firm to the end, (Hebrews 3:15) while it is said, “Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.” (Hebrews 3:16)  For whom, having heard, rebelled? Was it not all who came out of Mitsrayim, led by Mosheh? (Hebrews 3:17)  And with who was He grieved forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose corpses fell in the wilderness? (Hebrews 3:18)  And to whom did He swear that they would not enter into His rest, but to those who did not obey? (Hebrews 3:19)  So we see that they were unable to enter in because of unbelief.

We are warned here not to murmur and complain; but to pray in the Spirit- building up our most set apart faith and trust that He may direct us to produce fruit that remains!

(Jude 1:9)  But Miḵa’ĕl the chief messenger (Angel), in contending with the devil, when he disputed about the body of Mosheh, presumed not to bring against him a blasphemous accusation, but said, “יהוה rebuke you!” (Jude 1:10)  But these blaspheme that which they do not know. And that which they know naturally, like unreasoning beasts, in these they corrupt themselves. (Jude 1:11)  Woe to them! They have gone in the way of Qayin, and gave themselves to the delusion of Bilʽam for a reward, and perished in the rebellion of Qoraḥ. (Jude 1:12)  These are rocky reefs in your love feasts, feasting with you, feeding themselves without fear, waterless clouds borne about by the winds, late autumn trees without fruit, twice dead, pulled up by the roots, (Jude 1:13)  wild waves of the sea foaming up their own shame, straying stars for whom blackness of darkness is kept forever. (Jude 1:14)  And Ḥanoḵ, the seventh from Adam, also prophesied of these, saying, “See, יהוה comes with His myriads of set-apart ones, (Jude 1:15) to execute judgment on all, to punish all who are wicked among them concerning all their wicked works which they have committed in a wicked way, and concerning all the harsh words which wicked sinners have spoken against Him.” (Jude 1:16)  These are grumblers, complainers, who walk according to their own lusts, and their mouth speaks proudly, admiring faces of others for the sake of gain. (Jude 1:17)  But you, beloved ones, remember the words spoken before by the emissaries of our Master יהושע Messiah, (Jude 1:18) because they told you that there would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own wicked lusts. (Jude 1:19)  These are the ones who cause divisions, not having the Spirit. (Jude 1:20)  But you, beloved ones, building yourselves up on your most set-apart belief, praying in the Set-apart Spirit, (Jude 1:21) keep yourselves in the love of Elohim, looking for the compassion of our Master יהושע Messiah unto everlasting life.

When hasatan inhabits the anti-messiah the last 42 months (The Great Tribulation) we (who are born again and keep His commandments) are protected in the wilderness!

(Rev 12:13)  And when the dragon saw that he had been thrown to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child. (Rev 12:14)  And the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, to fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.

Note the swallowing of the flood (Which are rebellious people doing evil against us) is like Korah’s rebellion!

(Rev 12:15)  And out of his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river after the woman, to cause her to be swept away by the river. (Rev 12:16)  And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the river (people-flood) which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth.

Note who hasatan makes war against- not Judah or many fast asleep Christians- but those of the believers who have the testimony of Yahshua (born again spiritually) and keep His Commandments.

(Rev 12:17)  And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to fight with the remnant of her seed, those guarding the commands of Elohim and possessing the witness of יהושע Messiah.

My prayer for you Loved One- is that you and ALL your loved ones guard the commands of YHWH and possess the testimony of Yahshua the Messiah. That you HEAR and OBEY Yahshua- our Chief Shepherd, and escape and endure the enemy; producing much fruit that glorifies our Father! Hallelu-YAH! Thanks much for your intercession for me and my loved ones- May YHWH bless you back 100 fold!
Shalom to your home Loved One,
