Shabbat Shalom Loved One!    (This study is available at the website below)

www.shabbatshalomlovedone.blogspot.com Torah Studies www.seedtime2harvest.com video/audio presentations to help us trust our Messiah!
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!
Recently I double checked my study to see if I was on track. Goodness- seems I am one week ahead as I had left out “SAY” which was supposed to be done on the 20th of October; so bear with me as I correct my error! Growing up is sometimes difficult- ask any teenager! I believe Father is now making His body aware of the need for us to mature and grow up spiritually. I awoke yesterday with an understanding of why we must no longer take offense as this allows envying and STRIFE (We can be like babies and the immature who don’t get our way) and allows the enemy of our souls to work against us. When we take offense- normally the next thing our mouths would naturally do is speak against that person who has offended us. TAKE NO OFFENSE! So, how do we determine if the growth process is proceeding? Are we among those who take offense easily? Here is our instruction to tame our tongue:

(Jas 3:10) Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brothers, this should not be so. (Jas 3:11)  Does the fountain send forth the sweet and the bitter from the same opening? (Jas 3:12)  My brothers, is a fig tree able to bear olives, or a grapevine figs? So neither is a fountain able to make salt and sweet water. (Jas 3:13)  Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by his good behavior his works in meekness of wisdom. (Jas 3:14)  But if you have bitter jealousy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast against and lie against the truth. (Jas 3:15)  This is not the wisdom coming down from above, but it is earthly, unspiritual, and demonic. (Jas 3:16)  For where jealousy and self-seeking are, there is confusion and every foul deed. (Jas 3:17)  But the wisdom from above is first clean, then peaceable, gentle, ready to obey, filled with compassion and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.

We start our lives as believers as BABIES but we are commanded to grow up and walk by trust and faith!

KJV (Mat 18:3) and (Yahshua) said, Verily I say unto you, except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. (Mat 18:4)  Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. (Mat 18:5)  And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receives me. (Mat 18:6)  But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it was better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. (Mat 18:7)  Woe unto the world because of offences! For it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! (Mat 18:8)  Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire. (Mat 18:9)  And if your eye offend you, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. (Mat 18:10)  Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, that in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.

Obstacles and difficulties will mature us

(Hebrews 5:5)  So also the Messiah did not extol Himself to become High Priest, but it was He who said to Him, “You are My Son; today I have brought you forth.”1 Footnote: 1See 1:5, Ps. 2:7. (Hebrews 5:6)  As He also says in another place, “You are a priest forever according to the order of Malkitseḏeq,”1 Footnote: 1Ps. 110:4. (Hebrews 5:7)  who, in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and petitions with strong crying and tears to Him who was able to save Him from death, and was heard because of His reverent fear, (Hebrews 5:8)  though being a Son, He learned obedience by what He suffered. (Hebrews 5:9)  And having been perfected (matured), He became the Causer of everlasting deliverance to all those obeying Him, (Hebrews 5:10) having been designated by Elohim a High Priest “according to the order of Malkitseḏeq,” (Hebrews 5:11) concerning whom we have much to say, and hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. (Hebrews 5:12)  For indeed, although by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first elements of the Words of Elohim. And you have become such as need milk and not solid food. (Hebrews 5:13)  For everyone partaking of milk is inexperienced in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. (Hebrews 5:14)  But solid food is for the mature whose senses have been trained by practice to discern both good and evil. Let us consider carefully loved one. Growing up spiritually is of vast importance – perhaps even more important than our physical growing up. We are to be found BLAMELESS at our King’s appearing so we must grow up now: (1Th 5:23)  And the Elohim of peace Himself set you completely apart, and your entire spirit, and being (soul), and body - be preserved blameless at the coming of our Master יהושע Messiah!

There is a certain recurring thought YHVH has been bringing to me lately to share with every one of us. My expectations are that He wants us in a good standing with Him and others NOW for a reason. Yes, I expect that reason is advancing on us living now- at the end of the age. Not many would be the least surprised if we see a nuclear exchange of some sort in the Middle East before year’s end. Let’s pray that we have SHALOM and not war and that repentance for ourselves and our leaders break forth! Yah is on the throne and He knows the end from the beginning. Is it Isaiah 17:1? Is it Psalms 83? Is it Ezekiel 38-9; is it Joel 3 which will bring “swift repayment” on us for dividing Jerusalem? Is it Jeremiah 51? Is it Zechariah 5? Not sure, perhaps all of them along with Ezekiel 38-9! They are each worth our prayerful considerations. Here’s the thought I believe He wants me to address for our benefit BEFORE we must stand in front of Him. There is NO reconciliation apart from repentance!”  Anger is a manifestation of pain, and left unchecked leads to rebellion. We have all been hurt, abandoned, rejected, or made to feel inferior by someone (or many) during our lives. Let’s get free! Here are some verses from a short verse search that speak volumes to us living today. If these things were true when Yahshua first came as a type of Joseph- suffering servant to gather the 12 brothers (Family- lost sheep of Israel) How much more are they true-- do you and I suppose they are for us who are living now when He is coming again as King of Israel- The Lion of Judah to restore His brothers (Israel- You and I). I would expect the Kingdom of Heaven is closer now than then…remember we must forgive to be forgiven Loved One (YHWH moves mountains but bring a shovel) - look with me:

Mat_3:2 and saying, “Repent, for the reign of the heavens has come near!”
Mat_4:17 from that time יהושע began to proclaim and to say, Repent, for the reign of the heavens has drawn near.”
Mat_11:20 Then He began to reproach the cities in which most of His miracles had been done, because they did not repent:
Mat_21:32  for Yoḥanan came to you in the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but tax collectors and whores believed him. And when you saw it, you did not repent afterwards, to believe him.
Mar_1:15 and saying, “The time has been filled, and the reign of Elohim has come near. Repent, and believe in the Good News.”
Mar_6:12 and they went out and proclaimed that men should repent.
Luk_13:3 “I say to you, no! But unless you repent you shall all perish in the same way.
Luk_13:5 “I say to you, no! But unless you repent you shall all perish in the same way.”
Luk_16:30 “And he said, ‘No, father Aḇraham, but if someone from the dead goes to them, they shall repent.’
Luk_17:4  “And if he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times in a day comes back to you, saying, ‘I repent,’ you shall forgive him.”
Act_2:38 And Kĕpha said to them, Repent, and let each one of you be immersed in the Name of יהושע Messiah for the forgiveness of sins.1 and you shall receive the gift of the Set-apart Spirit. Footnote: 1See 2:40, 3:19, 3:26.

WHY More on REPENT? Remember with me that John’s name (Yah Chanan or Yah’s mercy) was given by the Father so there was no mistake about his mission to bring people to REPENTANCE! But please note before the GREAT and TERRIBLE DAY OF YHVH Yahshua also states that Elijah (spirit of repentance) SHALL come again- it is likely in our age now we will have much to repent of also- since the LAW or Instructions have not been done away with according to Matthew 5:17- that we should not even in our wildest dreams consider that:

(Mat 5:16)  “Let your light so shine before men, so that they see your good works and praise your Father who is in the heavens. (Mat 5:17)  “Do not think that I came to destroy the Torah or the Prophets.1 I did not come to destroy but to complete. (Fulfill- He has fulfilled the Spring Feasts but the Fall ones are still to come and He is not reigning in Jerusalem- and obviously to even us casual observers- there is still a heaven and earth- so until we get a new heaven and earth at the end of His millennium reign- all is not fulfilled or complete)  Footnote: 1The Law and the Prophets is a term used for the pre-Messianic Scriptures. (Mat 5:18)  “For truly, I say to you, till the heaven and the earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall by no means pass from the Torah till all be done.1 Footnote: 1Lk. 16:17. (Mat 5:19)  “Whoever, then, breaks one of the least of these commands, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the reign of the heavens; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the reign of the heavens. (Mat 5:20)  “For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees,1 you shall by no means enter into the reign of the heavens. Footnote: 1Mt. 15:3-9, Mk. 7:7-13, John 7:19, Acts 7:53, Rom. 2:23-27, Gal. 6:13.

Elijah must/shall come first before the Day of the Lord

(Mat 17:10)  And His taught ones asked Him, saying, “Why then do the scribes say that Ěliyahu has to come first?” (Mat 17:11)  And יהושע answering, said to them, “Ěliyahu is indeed coming first, and shall restore all matters.1 Footnote: 1See Mark 9:12 and Acts 3:21. (Mat 17:12)  “But I say to you that Ěliyahu has already come, and they did not recognize him but did to him whatever they wished. In this way the Son of Aḏam is also about to suffer by them.” (Mat 17:13)  Then the taught ones understood that He had spoken to them about Yoḥanan the Immerser.

Act_3:19Repent therefore and turn back, for the blotting out of your sins, in order that times of refreshing might come from the presence of the Master,
Act_8:22Repent therefore of this evil of yours, and plead with Elohim to forgive you the intention of your heart.
Act_17:30 “Truly, then, having overlooked these times of ignorance, Elohim now commands all men everywhere to repent,
Act_26:20  but declared first to those in Damascus and in Yerushalayim, and in all the country of Yehuḏah, and to the gentiles, that they should repent, and turn to Elohim, and do works worthy of repentance.1 Footnote: 1See Mt. 16:27.
Rev_2:5 “So remember from where you have fallen, and repent and do the first works, or else I shall come to you speedily and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent.
Rev_2:16 Repent, or else I shall come to you speedily and fight against them with the sword of my mouth.
Rev_2:21 “And I gave her time to repent of her whoring, and she did not repent.
Rev_2:22 “See, I am throwing her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great affliction, unless they repent of their works.

Sober and Alert- REPENT

Rev_3:3 “Remember, then, how you have received, and heard. And watch and repent. If, then, you do not wake up, I shall come upon you as a thief, and you shall not know at all what hour I come upon you.
Rev_3:19 “As many as I love, I reprove and discipline. So be ardent and repent.
Rev_9:20  And the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship the demons, and idols of gold, and of silver, and of brass, and of stone, and of wood, which are neither able to see, nor to hear, nor to walk.
Rev_9:21 and they did not repent of their murders, or of their drug sorceries, or of their whoring, or of their thefts.
Rev_16:9 and men were burned with great heat, and they blasphemed the Name of Elohim who possesses authority over these plagues. And they did not repent, to give Him esteem.
Rev_16:11 and they blasphemed the Elohim of the heaven for their pains and their sores, and did not repent of their works.

Hopefully, just refreshing our memories with these repentance Scriptures will now stir us to asking YHWH to bring up things we need to repent of and take necessary actions to have a right standing with our Heavenly Father. (Psalms 51:7)  Cleanse me with hyssop, (Reference to the blood of the Lamb on the doorposts of our hearts) and I am clean; wash me, and I am whiter than snow. (Psalms 51:8)  Let me hear joy and gladness, let the bones you have crushed rejoice. (Psalms 51:9)  Hide your face from my sins, and blot out all my crookednesses. (Psalms 51:10)  Create in me a clean heart, O Elohim, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. (Psalms 51:11)  Do not cast me away from your presence, and do not take Your Set-apart Spirit from me. (Psalms 51:12)  Restore to me the joy of your deliverance, and uphold me, Noble Spirit! (Psalms 51:13)  Let me teach transgressors your ways, so that sinners turn back to you. (Psalms 51:14)  Deliver me from blood-guilt, O Elohim, Elohim of my deliverance, let my tongue sing aloud of your righteousness. (Psalms 51:15)  O יהוה, open my lips, and that my mouth declare your praise.

Now knowing His promises are restored even as we heartily and purposely repent, we turn our hearts and minds to this week’s Torah portion. Hallelu-Yah for the blood of the Lamb and the love of YHWH which brings men (and women- mankind) to REPENTANCE!

Here are this week’s Torah Scriptures:   Emor “Say”

Leviticus 21:1-24:23; Ezekiel 44:15-31; 1 Peter 2:4-10

TORAH- the Constitution of the Kingdom- He will need to teach us for 1000 years at least!

(Leviticus 21:1)  And יהוה said to Mosheh, “Speak to the priests, the sons of Aharon, and say to them: ‘No one is to be defiled for the dead among his people, (Leviticus 21:2) except for his relatives who are nearest to him: for his mother, and for his father, and for his son, and for his daughter, and for his brother; (Leviticus 21:3)  and for his maiden sister who is near to him, who has had no husband – for her he is defiled. (Leviticus 21:4)  ‘A leader does not defile himself among his people, to profane himself; (Leviticus 21:5) they do not make any bald place on their heads, and they do not shave the corner of their beard, and they do not make a cutting in their flesh. (Leviticus 21:6)  ‘They are set-apart to their Elohim and do not profane the Name of their Elohim, for they bring the offerings of יהוה made by fire, and the bread of their Elohim, and shall be set-apart. (Leviticus 21:7)  ‘They do not take a woman who is a whore or a defiled woman, and they do not take a woman put away from her husband, for he is set-apart to his Elohim. (Leviticus 21:8)  ‘And you shall set him apart, for he brings the bread of your Elohim, he is set-apart to you. For I, יהוה, setting you apart, am set-apart. (Leviticus 21:9)  ‘And when the daughter of any priest profanes herself by whoring, she profanes her father. She is burned with fire. (Leviticus 21:10)  ‘And the high priest among his brothers, on whose head the anointing oil was poured and who is ordained to wear the garments, does not unbind his head nor tear his garments, (Leviticus 21:11)  nor come near any dead body, nor defile himself for his father or his mother, (Leviticus 21:12)  nor go out of the set-apart place, nor profane the set-apart place of his Elohim, for the sign of dedication of the anointing oil of his Elohim is upon him. I am יהוה. (Leviticus 21:13)  ‘And let him take a wife in her maidenhood. (Leviticus 21:14)  ‘A widow or one put away or a defiled woman or a whore – these he does not take. But a maiden of his own people he does take as a wife. (Leviticus 21:15)  ‘And he does not profane his offspring among his people, for I am יהוה, who sets him apart.’ ” (Leviticus 21:16) And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Leviticus 21:17) “Speak to Aharon, saying, ‘No man of your offspring throughout their generations, who has any defect, is to draw near to bring the bread of his Elohim. (Leviticus 21:18)  ‘For any man who has a defect is not to draw near: a man blind or one lame or disfigured or deformed, (Leviticus 21:19) a man who has a broken foot or broken hand, (Leviticus 21:20) or is a hunchback or a dwarf, or a man who has a defect in his eye, or eczema or scab, or is a eunuch. (Leviticus 21:21)  ‘No man among the offspring of Aharon the priest, who has a defect, is to come near to bring the offerings made by fire to יהוה – he has a defect, he does not come near to bring the bread of his Elohim. (Leviticus 21:22)  ‘He does eat the bread of his Elohim, both the most set-apart and the set-apart, (Leviticus 21:23) only, he does not go near the veil or approach the altar, because he has a defect, lest he profanes my set-apart places. I am יהוה, who sets them apart.’ ” (Leviticus 21:24) Thus Mosheh spoke to Aharon and his sons, and to all the children of Yisra’ĕl. 

More rules of the Kingdom

(Leviticus 22:1)  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Leviticus 22:2) “Speak to Aharon and his sons, that they separate themselves from the set-apart offerings of the children of Yisra’ĕl, and that they do not profane my set-apart Name in what they set apart to Me. I am יהוה. (Leviticus 22:3)  “Say to them, ‘any man of all your offspring throughout your generations who draws near the set-apart offerings which the children of Yisra’ĕl set apart to יהוה, while he has uncleanness upon him, that being shall be cut off from before Me. I am יהוה. (Leviticus 22:4)  ‘Any man of the offspring of Aharon who is a leper or has a discharge; does not eat the set-apart offerings until he is clean. And whoever touches what is rendered unclean by a corpse, or a man who has had an emission of semen, (Leviticus 22:5) or a man who touches any creeping creature by which he would be made unclean, or any being by whom he would become unclean, even any of his uncleanness; (Leviticus 22:6) the being who has touched it shall be unclean until evening, and does not eat the set-apart offerings, but shall bathe his body in water. (Leviticus 22:7)  ‘And when the sun goes down he shall be clean, and afterward eat the set-apart offerings, because it is his food. (Leviticus 22:8)  ‘He does not eat that which dies or is torn by beasts, becoming unclean by it. I am יהוה. (Leviticus 22:9)  ‘And they shall guard My Charge, lest they bear sin for it and die thereby, when they profane it. I יהוה set them apart. (Leviticus 22:10)  ‘And no stranger eats the set-apart offering. A sojourner with the priest, or a hired servant, does not eat the set-apart offering. (Leviticus 22:11)  ‘But when the priest buys a being with his money, he does eat of it. And one who is born in his house does eat his food. (Leviticus 22:12)  ‘And when a priest’s daughter is married to a stranger, she does not eat of the set-apart offerings. (Leviticus 22:13)  ‘But when a priest’s daughter is a widow or put away, and has no child, and has returned to her father’s house as in her youth, she does eat her father’s food, but no stranger eats of it. (Leviticus 22:14)  ‘And when a man eats the set-apart offering by mistake, then he shall give a set-apart offering to the priest, and add one-fifth to it. (Leviticus 22:15)  ‘And let the priests not profane the set-apart offerings of the children of Yisra’ĕl, which they lift up to יהוה, (Leviticus 22:16) or allow them to bear the crookedness of trespass when they eat their set-apart offerings. I am יהוה, who sets them apart.’ ” (Leviticus 22:17)  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Leviticus 22:18)  “Speak to Aharon and his sons, and to all the children of Yisra’ĕl, and say to them, ‘Any man of the house of Yisra’ĕl, or of the strangers in Yisra’ĕl, who brings his offering for any of his vows or for any of his voluntary offerings, which they bring to יהוה as a burnt offering, (Leviticus 22:19)  for your acceptance, is a male, a perfect one from the cattle, from the sheep, or from the goats. (Leviticus 22:20)  ‘Whatever has a defect, you do not bring, for it is not acceptable for you. (Leviticus 22:21)  ‘And when a man brings a peace offering to יהוה, to complete a vow, or a voluntary offering from the cattle or the sheep, it is to be perfect to be accepted, let there be no defect in it. (Leviticus 22:22)  ‘Those blind or broken or having a cut, or have an ulcer or eczema or scabs, you do not bring to יהוה, nor make an offering by fire of them on the altar to יהוה. (Leviticus 22:23)  ‘As for a bull or a lamb that has any limb deformed or dwarfed you do prepare as a voluntary offering, but for a vow it is not accepted. (Leviticus 22:24)  ‘Do not bring to יהוה what is bruised or crushed, or torn or cut, nor do it in your land. (Leviticus 22:25)  ‘And from a son of a stranger’s hand you do not bring any of these as the bread of your Elohim, for their corruption is in them, and defects are in them, they are not acceptable for you.’ ” (Leviticus 22:26) And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Leviticus 22:27) “When a bull or a sheep or a goat is born, it shall be seven days with its mother. And from the eighth day and thereafter it is acceptable as an offering made by fire to יהוה. (Leviticus 22:28)  “But do not slaughter a cow or a sheep and its young on the same day. (Leviticus 22:29)  “And when you bring a slaughtering of thanksgiving to יהוה, bring it for your acceptance. (Leviticus 22:30)  “It is eaten that same day; leave none of it till morning. I am יהוה. (Leviticus 22:31)  “And you shall guard my commands and do them. I am יהוה. (Leviticus 22:32)  “And do not profane my set-apart Name, and I shall be set-apart among the children of Yisra’ĕl. I am יהוה, who sets you apart, (Leviticus 22:33) who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, to be your Elohim. I am יהוה.”

Appointed Times of YHWH (Moedim-rehearsals)

(Leviticus 23:1)  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Leviticus 23:2) “Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, and say to them, ‘the appointed times of יהוה, which you are to proclaim as set-apart gatherings, my appointed times, are these: (Leviticus 23:3)Six days work is done, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of rest, a set-apart gathering. You do no work; it is a Sabbath to יהוה in all your dwellings. (Leviticus 23:4)  ‘These are the appointed times of יהוה, set-apart gatherings which you are to proclaim at their appointed times. (Leviticus 23:5)  ‘In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, between the evenings, is the Passover to יהוה. (Leviticus 23:6)  ‘And on the fifteenth day of this month is the Festival of Unleavened Bread to יהוה – seven days you eat unleavened bread. (Leviticus 23:7)  ‘On the first day you have a set-apart gathering, you do no servile work. (Leviticus 23:8)  And you shall bring an offering made by fire to יהוה for seven days. On the seventh day is a set-apart gathering, you do no servile work.’ ” (Leviticus 23:9) and יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Leviticus 23:10) “Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, and you shall say to them, ‘When you come into the land which I give you, and shall reap its harvest, then you shall bring a sheaf of the first-fruits of your harvest to the priest. (Leviticus 23:11)  ‘And he shall wave the sheaf before יהוה, for your acceptance. On the morrow after the Sabbath the priest waves it. (Leviticus 23:12)  ‘And on that day when you wave the sheaf, you shall prepare a male lamb a year old, a perfect one, as a burnt offering to יהוה, (Leviticus 23:13) and its grain offering: two-tenths of an ĕphah of fine flour mixed with oil, an offering made by fire to יהוה, a sweet fragrance, and its drink offering: one-fourth of a hin of wine. (Leviticus 23:14)  ‘And you do not eat bread or roasted grain or fresh grain until the same day that you have brought an offering to your Elohim – a law forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. (Leviticus 23:15)  ‘And from the morrow after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering, you shall count for yourselves: seven completed Sabbaths. (Leviticus 23:16)  ‘Until the morrow after the seventh Sabbath you count fifty days, then you shall bring a new grain offering to יהוה. (Leviticus 23:17)  ‘Bring from your dwellings for a wave offering two loaves of bread, of two-tenths of an ĕphah of fine flour they are, baked with leaven, first-fruits to יהוה. (Leviticus 23:18)  ‘And besides the bread, you shall bring seven lambs a year old, perfect ones, and one young bull and two rams. They are a burnt offering to יהוה, with their grain offering and their drink offerings, an offering made by fire for a sweet fragrance to יהוה. (Leviticus 23:19)  ‘And you shall offer one male goat as a sin offering, and two male lambs a year old, as a peace offering. (Leviticus 23:20)  And the priest shall wave them, besides the bread of the first-fruits, as a wave offering before יהוה, besides the two lambs. They are set-apart to יהוה for the priest. (Leviticus 23:21)  ‘And on this same day you shall proclaim a set-apart gathering for yourselves, you do no servile work on it – a law forever in all your dwellings throughout your generations. (Leviticus 23:22)  ‘And when you reap the harvest of your land do not completely reap the corners of your field when you reap, and do not gather any gleaning from your harvest. Leave them for the poor and for the stranger. I am יהוה your Elohim.’ ” (Leviticus 23:23) and יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Leviticus 23:24) “Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, saying, ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you have a rest, a remembrance of blowing of trumpets, a set-apart gathering. (Leviticus 23:25)  You do no servile work, and you shall bring an offering made by fire to יהוה.’ ” (Leviticus 23:26) And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Leviticus 23:27) “On the tenth day of this seventh month is the Day of Atonement. It shall be a set-apart gathering for you. And you shall afflict your beings, and shall bring an offering made by fire to יהוה. (Leviticus 23:28)  “And you do no work on that same day, for it is the Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you before יהוה your Elohim. (Leviticus 23:29)  “For any being who is not afflicted on that same day, he shall be cut off from his people. (Leviticus 23:30)  “And any being who does any work on that same day, that being I shall destroy from the midst of his people. (Leviticus 23:31)  “You do no work – a law forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. (Leviticus 23:32)  ‘It is a Sabbath of rest to you, and you shall afflict your beings. On the ninth day of the month at evening, from evening to evening, you observe your Sabbath.” (Leviticus 23:33)  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Leviticus 23:34) “Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, saying, ‘On the fifteenth day of this seventh month is the Festival of Booths for seven days to יהוה. (Leviticus 23:35)  On the first day is a set-apart gathering, you do no servile work. (Leviticus 23:36)  ‘For seven days you bring an offering made by fire to יהוה. On the eighth day there shall be a set-apart gathering for you, and you shall bring an offering made by fire to יהוה. It is a closing festival, you do no servile work. (Leviticus 23:37)  ‘These are the appointed times of יהוה which you proclaim as set-apart gatherings, to bring an offering made by fire to יהוה, a burnt offering and a grain offering, a slaughtering and drink offerings, as commanded for every day(Leviticus 23:38) besides the Sabbaths of יהוה, and besides your gifts, and besides all your vows, and besides all your voluntary offerings which you give to יהוה. (Leviticus 23:39)  ‘On the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you gather in the fruit of the land, observe the festival of יהוה for seven days. On the first day is a rest, and on the eighth day a rest. (Leviticus 23:40)  ‘And you shall take for yourselves on the first day the fruit of good trees, branches of palm trees, twigs of leafy trees, and willows of the stream, and shall rejoice before יהוה your Elohim for seven days. (Leviticus 23:41)  And you shall observe it as a festival to יהוה for seven days in the year – a law forever in your generations. Observe it in the seventh month. (Leviticus 23:42)  ‘Dwell in booths for seven days; all who are native Yisra’ĕlites dwell in booths, (Leviticus 23:43) so that your generations know that I made the children of Yisra’ĕl dwell in booths when I brought them out of the land of Mitsrayim. I am יהוה your Elohim.’ ” (Leviticus 23:44) Thus did Mosheh speak of the appointed times of יהוה to the children of Yisra’ĕl.

More Rules of the Kingdom- Bringing Oil- Learning- Never blaspheming His Name- YHWH!

(Leviticus 24:1)  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Leviticus 24:2) “Command the children of Yisra’ĕl that they bring to you clear oil of pressed olives for the light, to make the lamps burn continually. (Leviticus 24:3)  “Outside the veil of the Witness, in the Tent of Meeting, Aharon is to arrange it from evening until morning before יהוה continually – a law forever throughout your generations. (Leviticus 24:4)  “He is to arrange the lamps on the clean gold lampstand before יהוה continually. (Leviticus 24:5)  “And you shall take fine flour and bake twelve cakes with it, two-tenths of an ĕphah in each cake. (Leviticus 24:6)  “And you shall set them in two rows, six in a row, on the clean table before יהוה. (Leviticus 24:7)  “And you shall put clear frankincense on each row, and it shall be on the bread as a remembrance portion, an offering made by fire to יהוה. (Leviticus 24:8)  “On every Sabbath he is to arrange it before יהוה continually, from the children of Yisra’ĕl – an everlasting covenant. (Leviticus 24:9)  “And it shall be for Aharon and his sons, and they shall eat it in the set-apart place, because it is most set-apart to him from the offerings of יהוה made by fire – an everlasting law.” (Leviticus 24:10)  And the son of an Yisra’ĕlite woman, whose father was a Mitsrite, went out among the children of Yisra’ĕl. And the Yisra’ĕlite woman’s son and a man of Yisra’ĕl strove in the camp. (Leviticus 24:11)  And the Yisra’ĕlite woman’s son blasphemed the Name, and cursed. So they brought him to Mosheh. Now his mother’s name was Shelomith the daughter of Diḇri, of the tribe of Dan. (Leviticus 24:12)  And they put him in under guard, that it might be declared to them at the mouth of יהוה. (Leviticus 24:13)  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Leviticus 24:14) “Bring the one who has cursed outside the camp, and all those who heard him shall lay their hands on his head, and the entire congregation shall stone him. (Leviticus 24:15)  “And speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, saying, ‘Anyone who curses his Elohim shall bear his sin. (Leviticus 24:16)  And he who blasphemes the Name of יהוה shall certainly be put to death and the entire    certainly stone him, the stranger as well as the native. When he blasphemes the Name, he is put to death. (Leviticus 24:17)  ‘And he who smites the life from any man shall certainly be put to death. (Leviticus 24:18)  ‘And he who smites a beast repays it, body for body. (Leviticus 24:19)  ‘And when a man inflicts a blemish upon his neighbor, as he has done so it is done to him: (Leviticus 24:20) ‘Fracture for fracture, eye for eye, and tooth for tooth; as he inflicts a blemish upon him, so it is done to him. (Leviticus 24:21)  ‘And he who smites a beast repays it, and he who smites a man to death is put to death. (Leviticus 24:22)  ‘You are to have one right-ruling, for the stranger and for the native, for I am יהוה your Elohim.’ ” (Leviticus 24:23) And Mosheh spoke to the children of Yisra’ĕl and they brought the one who cursed outside the camp, and stoned him with stones. And the children of Yisra’ĕl did as יהוה commanded Mosheh.

(Ezekiel 44:15)  “But the priests, the Lĕwites, the sons of Tsaḏoq, who guarded the duty of my set-apart place when the children of Yisra’ĕl went astray from me, they shall draw near to me to serve me, and shall stand before me to bring to me the fat and the blood,” declares the Master יהוה. (Ezekiel 44:16)  “They shall enter my set-apart place, and they shall draw near to my table to serve me, and they shall guard my charge. (Ezekiel 44:17)  “And it shall be, when they enter the gates of the inner courtyard that they put on linen garments and no wool shall come upon them while they attend within the gates of the inner courtyard or within the house. (Ezekiel 44:18)  “They shall have linen turbans on their heads and linen trousers on their bodies; they shall not gird themselves with sweat. (Ezekiel 44:19)  “And when they go out to the outer courtyard, to the outer courtyard to the people, they shall take off their garments in which they have attended, and shall leave them in the set-apart rooms, and shall put on other garments. And they shall set apart the people in their set-apart garments. (Ezekiel 44:20)  “And their heads they shall not shave, nor shall they let their hair grow long – they shall keep their hair well-trimmed. (Ezekiel 44:21)  “And no priest is to drink wine when he comes into the inner court. (Ezekiel 44:22)  “And they do not take as wife a widow or a divorced woman, but take maidens of the seed of the house of Yisra’ĕl, or widows of priests. (Ezekiel 44:23)  “And they are to teach my people the difference between the set-apart and the profane, and make them know what is unclean and clean. (Ezekiel 44:24)  “And they are to stand as judges in a dispute, and judge it according to my right-rulings. And they are to guard My Torot and my laws in all my appointed festivals, and set apart My Sabbaths. (Ezekiel 44:25)  “And they are not to defile themselves by coming near a dead man. Only for a father or mother, for a son or daughter, for a brother or unmarried sister they defile themselves. (Ezekiel 44:26)  “And after his cleansing, they count seven days for him, (Ezekiel 44:27)  and on the day that he comes into the inner court of the set-apart place to attend in the set-apart place, he brings his sin offering,” declares the Master יהוה. (Ezekiel 44:28)  “And it shall be to them for an inheritance, I am their inheritance. And you give them no possession in Yisra’ĕl – I am their possession. (Ezekiel 44:29)  “The grain offering, and the sin offering, and the guilt offering they are to eat, and all that is dedicated in Yisra’ĕl is theirs. (Ezekiel 44:30)  “And the first of all the first-fruits of all, and every contribution of all, of all your contributions, belong to the priests. And the first of your ground meal you give to the priest, so that a blessing rests on your house. (Ezekiel 44:31)  “The priests are not to eat any bird or beast found dead or torn to pieces.

Making ourselves ready – washing in the water of the word- becoming the BRIDE without spot or blemish- living stones...a ROYAL PRIESTHOOD

(1Pe 2:1)  Having put aside, then, all evil, and all deceit, and hypocrisies, and envying’s, and all evil words, (1Pe 2:2)  as newborn babes, desire the unadulterated milk of the Word, in order that you grow by it, (1Pe 2:3)  if indeed you have tasted that the Master is good. (1Pe 2:4)  Drawing near to Him, a living Stone – rejected indeed by men, but chosen by Elohim and precious – (1Pe 2:5) you also, as living stones, are being built up, a spiritual house, a set-apart priesthood, to offer up spiritual slaughter offerings acceptable to Elohim through יהושע Messiah. (1Pe 2:6)  Because it is contained in the Scripture, “See, I lay in Tsiyon a chief corner-stone, chosen, precious, and he who believes on Him shall by no means be put to shame.”1 Footnote: 1Isa. 28:16. (1Pe 2:7) this preciousness, then, is for you who believe; but to those who are disobedient, The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief corner-stone,”1 Footnote: 1Ps. 118:22. (1Pe 2:8) and A stone of stumbling and a rock that makes for falling,”1 who stumble because they are disobedient2 to the Word, to which they also were appointed. Footnotes: 1Isa. 8:14. 2See John 3:36, Hebrews. 3:18. (1Pe 2:9)  But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a set-apart nation, a people for a possession, that you should proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light, (1Pe 2:10)  who once were not a people, but now the people of Elohim; who had not obtained compassion, but now obtained compassion.

Loved One, my prayer for you and all your loved ones and me and my loved ones is that whatever it takes, whether an angel or person, that YHWH sends workers to bring these all to REPENTANCE and gathers us into His harvest. Therefore, we put aside all manner and avenues of deceit, evil, envying’s, and evil words that report apparent facts but disagree with His word and drink the pure word of YHWH and draw near to Him who made Heaven and Earth and all that is seen and unseen! This life is quite temporary in this flesh body so 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. Thanks for allowing me this week to “catch up and correct” my leaving out “SAY” on October 20!

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.
