All who KNOW (Not know about) HIM and call on Him will be delivered- HalleluYAH!  “News You May Not Have Heard” - free video-audio presentations- building trust in our coming King! Weekly Torah Studies
Why are we on a different schedule of the Torah Cycle than the mainstream and the Orthodox? For me it is about restoration of all things- explanation continued at end of this week’s study-
Are we close to the end of this age? Please reconsider if you are one that sees Halloween as harmless. I realize that it is not satanic worship to you, at least that’s not likely what it means to you- but should we not consider the reality of what it means to our Creator Yahweh? We are commanded to NOT learn the ways of the heathens!
(Luke 21:31)  “So you also, when you see these matters take place, know that the reign of Elohim is near. (Luke 21:32)  “Truly, I say to you, this generation shall by no means pass away till all shall have taken place. (Luke 21:33)  “The heaven and the earth shall pass away, but my words shall by no means pass away. (Luke 21:34)  “And take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down by gluttony, and drunkenness and worries of this life, and that day come on you suddenly. (Luke 21:35)  “For it shall come as a snare on all those dwelling on the face of all the earth. (Luke 21:36)  Watch then at all times, and pray that you be counted worthy to escape all this about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Aḏam.” No Pre-tribulation rapture- we are to escape and endure and produce fruit which alone glorifies our Father and what a blessing to still be standing when He returns- Hallelu-Yah! No need for fear- Our Elohim holds the wicked men of the earth (and the demonic s infesting/directing them) in DERISION as He laughs at them! Draw near to our Father ad FEAR NOT!
No need for fear- Our Elohim holds the wicked men of the earth (and the demonic s infesting/directing them) in DERISION as He laughs at them! Draw near to our Father and FEAR NOT! Okay we will now take a closer look again at Halloween and make some decisions about how we guide our children.
Loved One- October is often the time of the Fall Feasts of YHWH; however it is also a time of conflict among believers.  While most understand that stock Halloween celebrations are rooted in the occult, many don't know the history behind this peculiar autumn festival associated with Halloween that can be entries for the occult.  Before we get to our Torah study today let’s take a look at a real and present danger and what is really the driving force of Halloween- the occult forces. Many people believe these "games" are just harmless fun, and are unaware of the very real dangers they can face by dabbling in the realm of the demonic. From a Hebraic perspective this is the “celebration” of Noah’s flood we studied earlier. YHWH’s judgment left them skeletons (carcasses) and spooks (demon entities with no flesh home remaining to abide in) roaming around the earth searching for a new home. In a nutshell, judgment is again headed for Planet Earth, appropriately, this time with fire. We get to choose who we will obey: (Deuteronomy 11:26)  Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse; (Deuteronomy 11:27)  A blessing, if you obey the commandments of YHWH your Elohim, which I command you this day: (Deuteronomy 11:28)  And a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of YHWH your Elohim, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which you have not known.

In ancient Britain and Ireland, (Where many of Ephraim, the ten Northern Tribes of Israel settled and then came from around the world- why were they kicked out of Israel? Pagan worship practices!) the Celtic festival of Samhain ("Sah-win") was observed on October 31, the end of summer. November 1 was the New Year for both Celtic and Anglo-Saxon calendars and was one of the most important and yet sinister calendar festivals of the Celtic Year. Settling in northern France and the British Isles, the Celtic people engaged in occultic arts and worshiped nature, giving it supernatural, animistic qualities. The ancient Druids were the learned priestly class of the Celtic religion. Many of their beliefs and practices were similar to those of Hinduism, such as reincarnation and the transmigration of the soul, which teaches that people may be reborn as animals. The Druids believed that on October 31, the night before their New Year and the last day of the old year, Samhain, the Lord of Death, gathered the souls of the evil dead who had been condemned to enter the bodies of animals. The Druids also believed that the punishment of the evil dead would be lightened by sacrifices, prayers and gifts to the Lord of Death. (This begins to reveal the strange link between this holiday and the non-Biblical concept of purgatory.) The souls of the dead were supposed to revisit their homes on this day, and the autumnal festival acquired a sinister significance, with ghosts, witches, hobgoblins, black cats, fairies, and demons of all kinds said to be roaming about. It was the time to placate the supernatural powers controlling the processes of nature. Halloween is, for many, a "crossover" involvement in which innocent games can lead to serious entanglement with real witches, neo-pagans, New Agers, and other occultists.  A common pastime is the use of a Ouija board to attempt to contact ghosts or spirits that are believed to be roaming about. This can lead to serious consequences including demon possession. (The case studies underlying William Blatty's The Exorcist indicate that the trouble all began with a child playing with a Ouija board.) Demons have a vested interest in Halloween because it supports the occult, and it also offers novel and unexpected opportunities to control and influence people.
Forms of the occult can include mediums, channelers, clairvoyants, psychics, spiritists, diviners, mystics, gurus, shamans, psychical researchers, Yogis, psychic and holistic healers, astral travel, astrology, mysticism, Ouija boards, Tarot cards, contact with the dead, UFOs, and thousands of other practices which almost defy cataloging - even Harry Potter books and movies can lead innocent children into the occult. The writer of Harry Potter is an avid and unashamed self-proclaiming Satanist. Occultism includes Satanism, astrology, Kabbalah, Gnosticism, theosophy, witchcraft and many forms of serious magic. It includes activities seeking the acquisition of "hidden" things - which are expressly forbidden by YHWH in the Bible. Halloween practices can open the door to the occult and can introduce forces into people's lives that they are not equipped to combat.  There is genuine power in the occult, but it is demonic power (Mt 24:24; Acts 13:6-11; 16:16-19; 19:18-20; 2 Cor 4:4; Eph 6:7-11, 22).  Any serious study of Biblical demonology will reveal Satan as the power behind false religion, witchcraft, idolatry and the occult (Deuteronomy 32:16, 17; Ps 106:35-40; Acts 16:16-19; 1 Cor 10:19-21; 2 Thess 2:9, 10; 1 Tim 4:1ff). The Word of God makes it clear that these are all to be shunned as dangerous. There were many superstitions and false concepts in ancient Israel about which the Bible is not silent. However, occultism, in any form, was punishable by death! Why? The spiritual power and reality behind idols involves demons (1 Cor 10:20; Ps 106:37).  The Bible commands us to shun occult practices. Mediums and spiritists are expressly prohibited (Leviticus 19:31; Deuteronomy 18:10, 11, 14 2 Chr 33:6). Nowhere are such practices acceptable. Intellect alone is insufficient. "If it were possible, it would deceive the very elect.” Of course, the point is not to terrify people.  The ultimate goal is to point them to the source of true protection, of true salvation, of true hope.   Yahshua is the victor.  He's already won the battle, and he is stronger than anything Satan can throw at us.  Even more important, he has triumphed over death for us.  He told his disciples long ago, and still tells us today, "...Rejoice not that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven" (Luke 10:20)
Loved One; last week we reminded ourselves we must SPEAK THE WORD OF TRUTH AND NOT THE FACTS OR WHAT IS SEEN! Remember; Yahshua reminds us; His words are Spirit and Life. We will not be allowed to have His power if we speak the facts- that disagree with Him- remember the facts (giants in the land) are temporal (temporary) and subject to change whereas His words and agreeing with them are eternal- He reminds us that Heaven and Earth will pass away but His words will remain forever! Hallelu-Yah- walking in a demonstration of His power (which is becoming an ever apparent need) requires a humbling obedience on our parts loved one. Can we even imagine becoming Kings and Priests in the Millennial Kingdom if we won’t even obey Him in this day? Would you and I be so foolish to elevate our servants that will not obey us? Do we honestly think our King and Messiah will make those among us who choose to disobey Him Kings and Priests to teach and help direct others to His truths and instructions? (Torah)  Are we among them that erroneously believe we are now finally under grace? The Scriptures declare Noah found grace in His eyes. Obviously, so did Adam and Eve as they were not killed but covered with bloody animal skins. Do we find ourselves believing grace has done away with the Law or instructions (Torah)? Since 1 John declares KJV (1Jn 3:4) whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. Scriptures (1Jn 3:4) everyone doing sin also does lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness. Would we be so deceived that we believe Yahshua did away with sin which is transgression against the Torah (Law/Instructions) and therefore paid the price so that GRACE allows us to sin now without penalty? YHWH forbid us!

What do the instructions of Yahweh say?

(Rom 10:8)  But what does it say? The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart– that is, the word of belief (trust/faith) which we are proclaiming: (Rom 10:9) that if you confess (speak) with your mouth the Master יהושע (The WORD made flesh who dwells among us) and believe in your heart that Elohim has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved (Delivered, saved, healed, made whole). (Rom 10:10)  For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and one confesses with the mouth, and so is saved. (Rom 10:11)  Because the Scripture says, Whoever puts his trust in Him shall not be put to shame.”

He is no respecter of persons but as He told Jeremiah- He is watching over His word to perform it! (Jeremiah 1:12)  And יהוה said to me, “You have seen well, for I am watching over my word to do it.”

 The Ruach will guide us into more truth as we receive the engrafted word and become DOERS of what has been revealed. (Rom 2:13)  Not the hearers of the Torah are righteous in the sight of Elohim, but the doers of the law1 shall be declared right. Footnote: 1Mt. 7:21-27, James 2:14-24.

When we receive (A decision and choice we each make) the engrafted word- we will both submit and obey by our doing or likely we also are deceived or at least prone/susceptible to hasatan’s attack. If we choose to not receive then we are in rebellion. (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 (King).” I expect He will also reject us as Kings and Priests for disobedience- YIKES!

(James 1:21)  Therefore put away all filthiness and overflow of evil, and receive with meekness the implanted Word, 1 which is able to save your lives. Footnote: 1See Mt. 13:4-23. (James 1:22)  And become doers of the Word, and not hearers only, 1 deceiving yourselves. Footnote: 1See Mt. 7:24-27, Luke. 6:46-49, Luke. 8:21, Rom. 2:13, Heb. 4:11, Rev. 22:14. (James 1:23)  If anyone is a hearer of the Word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror, (James 1:24) for he looks at himself, and goes away, and immediately forgets what he was like. (James 1:25)  But he that looked into the perfect Torah, that of freedom, 1 and continues in it, not becoming a hearer that forgets, but a doer of work, this one shall be blessed in his doing of the Torah. Footnote: 1See 2:12.

How many of us still want to fit in, be accepted by unbelieving and mocking worldly friends and family members? It is time we make ourselves ready and quit playing with fire- we now must become the bride making ourselves ready! We must pray for them but become set apart!

(James 4:4)  Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with Elohim? 1 Whoever therefore intends to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of Elohim. Footnote: 1Mt. 13:22, Luke. 4:5-6, Luke. 14:33, Rom. 12:2, 1 John 2:15-17. (James 4:5)  Or do you think that the Scripture speaks to no purpose? Does the Spirit which dwells in us intensely crave unto envy? (James 4:6)  But He gives greater favor. Because of this He says, “Elohim resists the proud, but gives favor to the humble.” (James 4:7)  So then subject (submit- receive and do or SHE’MAH-Hear and Obey) yourselves to Elohim. Resist the devil1 and he shall flee from you. Footnote: 1Or adversary. (James 4:8)  Draw near to Elohim and He shall draw near to you. Cleanse hands, sinners. And cleanse the hearts, you double-minded! (James 4:9)  Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to dejection. (James 4:10)  Humble yourselves in the sight of the Master, and He shall lift you up. (James 4:11)  Brothers, do not speak against one another. He that speaks against a brother and judges his brother speaks against Torah and judges Torah. And if you judge Torah, you are not a doer of Torah but a judge. (James 4:12)  There is one Lawgiver and Judge, who is able to save and to destroy. Who are you to judge another?

(Hebrews 11:1) now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (Rom 10:17)  So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing (Cycle) by the word of YHWH. (Rom 10:18)  I say, have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world. (Rom 10:19)  I say, did not Israel know? First Moses says I will provoke you to jealousy by them that are no people, and by a foolish nation I will anger you. (Rom 10:20)  But Isaiah is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me. (Rom 10:21)  But to Israel he says, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.

We now take a fresh look at the Cycles of Scripture as our hearts receive fresh revelation and understanding from hearing and hearing His word.
Loved One, 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. VAIN? That’s equivalent to worthless!

TOOLS FOR VICTORY: PRAISE AND THANKSGIVING (Psalms 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! Call upon His Name; Make known His deeds among the peoples. Psalms 106:1 Praise Yah! Oh, give thanks to יהוה, For He is good! For His kindness is everlasting. Psalms 106:47 Save us, O יהוה our Elohim, and gather us from among the gentiles, to give thanks to your set-apart Name, to exult in your praise. Psalms 107:1 Give thanks to יהוה!  He is good, for His kindness is everlasting.

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. Ezra 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 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.  Hebrews 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.

(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.

There might be some more “traditions” we need to depart from! Knowing His name seems to be more important than many would have us believe! So again- perhaps we have inherited lies…

(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- our prayer for you and your loved ones is simple. That you make 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!

I would encourage you to consider praying and seeking the Father’s face regarding drawing nearer to the safest place on the planet- HEARING AND OBEYING HIM! He may have you also preparing for massive Earth Changes as apparently every major world government is aware of and planning for and digging underground cities for the elite demon infested wicked rulers to escape to- FEAR NOT- but as you feel led- (NOT in fear) prepare spirit, soul and body! We can trust our Elohim! We will likely be happy we are not allowed among them! Hehe This life is quite temporary in this flesh body- knowing this let’s live our lives that we may believe YHWH- that if we ask ANYTHING that is according to His word, and we know He hears us; we KNOW we have the things we have asked for! Hallelu-YAH!

(1Jn 1:9)  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (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! I pray also that you walk in Him and produce His fruit that remains! I further pray that you learn to walk in His supernatural gifts by faith and trust and further that you walk in obedience and so in love with the Messiah that you FEAR NOT! Thanks for your prayers for us that we also walk in His power, love and obedience; and that YHWH directs, provides, and protects us and our loved ones! Billie and I believe your wonderful prayers are seeds for your own loved ones- PRAISE YHWH! OUR DELIVERER IS COMING!  You are much loved!

Shalom to your home Loved One,


Continued explanation of 2012-13 Torah Cycle restart at beginning of monthsIt is about YHWH restoring all things which sometimes means we are walking alone. I start over annually when YHWH’s year starts over; this is not to say that I am correct and others are wrong, I just happen to believe we will never challenge our older brother Judah by following his traditions. I expect Judah will be moved by our obedience to His Torah (Words of Scripture) and seeing YHWH’s signs and wonders following our obedience- Does the statement above mean we are not to grab the tzitzit of Yehuda and take hold and learn from them? Of course not, we absolutely should learn of them and from them- just not ingest and keep that which is traditions that go against His words! Especially since we are the ten (Ten scattered northern tribes scattered for Easter and sun god day worship which parallels closely as a pig slop eating prodigal brother)
Let’s look; (Zechariah 8:22) ‘And many peoples and strong nations shall come to seek יהוה of hosts in Yerushalayim, and to pray before יהוה.’ (Zechariah 8:23)  “Thus said יהוה of hosts, ‘In those days (Now? YES and in the future also!) Ten men (10 scattered northern tribes called Ephraim and Israel) from all languages of the nations take hold, yea, they shall take hold of the edge of the garment of a man, a Yehuḏite1, saying, “Let us go with you, for we have heard that Elohim is with you.” ’ ” Footnote: 1John 4:22.
