THANK YOU ALL for your prayers and intercessions for us as we recently met some wonderful believers in Houston Texas! They did video (below) for both services. Because of your prayers- I even got to minister the power of YHWH and asked if anyone had not forgiven someone because they did not deserve it? One lady in the aisle (wheelchair) raised her hand- where I was able to help her understand--she was now not forgiven either as Yahshua promised if she would not forgive then now she would also be unforgiven and hell bound- so I led the whole church in a prayer of forgiveness explaining there is only ONE who was Torah giver and judge and helping all in releasing the offenses. Afterwards the whole church saw YHWH heal her instantly; as she was walking around in the foyer (No one laid hands on her) as she exclaimed - I cannot believe this --I have been totally confined to this wheel chair for 14 months! This church was very open to TRUTH of Shabbat and the FEASTS; they just never knew they were not "Jewish". HalleluYAH, I was quite honored and thank YHWH for opening the doors to a "regular" church- they are also moving their services to Friday night and also Sunday morning! I was teaching OBEDIENCE brings blessings and "legalism" is disobeying YHWH for manmade or added "traditions" that make the WORD of none effect! Even though this was a "regular"? Spirit filled church; they are TRUTHSEEKERS and their Pastor a lovely person: open and quite willing to obey the Ruach HaKodesh! I loved how they already allow the body to minister to each other which is quite Biblical! Note the video dates and start times and slide your cursor accordingly:

YHWH is restoring all things; that includes us who were once DRY BONES! All who KNOW (Not know about) HIM and call on Him will be delivered- HalleluYAH!  “News You May Not Have Heard” is found at http://thetorahtruths.wordpress.com.  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!
He is watching over His word; not our additions and subtractions (Adding our own pagan feast dates or removing His commanded Feasts from our worship)

Truth Seeker, first I want to reiterate what I was shown about Feast of Trumpets (way back in 2008) (Trumpets is usually September- October time frame) coming up in 2017 and the possibility of it being the Last Trump which we will be spared the WRATH of YHWH that (I suspect) is stored up and poured on those left the 7 days remaining (2 days for the 48 hours that Trumpets date is unknown- 7 days for the bowls of His wrath to be poured out and then Judgment by YHWH on Yom Kippur the 10th day; when of course 5 days later we are back on the earth with Yahshua celebrating the 7 day Wedding Feast (Feast of Tabernacles) where He dwells or tabernacles among us forever).Here’s what I believe He showed me: With a REPENT NOW understanding in our hearts (Which alone removes condemnation); let us consider carefully our next action from the testimony below; especially if we live in the USA- taking every thought captive to obedience to Messiah and FEAR NOT! Our King can protect us wherever you are- even in a fiery furnace IF you have asked Him where we are to be and obeyed what He said- which alone would give us permission to not “Come out of her or partake in her plagues” (Yes, even the country) Otherwise we can expect to partake of her plagues; remember Mystery Babylon is drunk on the blood of believers, including yours and mine if we disobey warning. FEAR NOT. Perfect Love casts out fear, Only Believe.

Again; reiterating my testimony concerning where we in the USA are living so we can understand the prophecy in Daniel about CONFIRMATION of the COVENANT: In late 1997 or early 1998, I asked our Heavenly Father, “If all these “end times” preachers are correct why isn’t America (USA was my specific thought but not my word in my question) in the scriptures?” He replied, “You are in the scriptures- go get your Bible and I will show you.” Surprised, I ran toward my house (I was outside) and got my Bible and sat down in my comfortable chair anticipating with prideful glee and a smile on my face- the great USA is in the Bible (I was quite proud) and I’m going to receive inside information as to where! Opening my Bible I asked again, “where?” He replied, “Turn to Revelation 17:1 and start reading, son and you will see America as I see her, but you may not like her name.” I was still excited with joyful expectation; “we’re in the Bible!” Joyful at least until I got to verses 5 and 6- so share my anticipation with me as I read: (Rev 17:1) And one of the seven messengers who had the seven bowls came and spoke with me, saying to me, “Come, I shall show you the judgment of the great whore sitting on many waters; 1 (Footnote: 1See v. 15.) (Rev 17:2) with whom the sovereigns of the earth committed whoring, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her whoring.” (Rev 17:3)  And he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast covered with names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. (Rev 17:4)  And the woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup filled with abominations and the filthiness of her whoring,1 Footnote: 1Jer. 51:7. (Rev 17:5) and upon her forehead a name written, a secret: BAḆEL THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF THE WHORES AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. (Rev 17:6)  And I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the set-apart ones, and with the blood of the witnesses of יהושע. And having seen her, I marveled – greatly marveled!

As the thought came Mystery Babylon- the Great Whore? I quickly replied, “No Lord- that’s IRAQ!” “That’s Iraq!” He replied, “It was Iraq, now it’s you.” My understanding was overwhelmed, and my thoughts kept racing- “I’ve heard from many great teachers and they told me it’s Iraq!” He replied, “You are the wealthiest country in the world and you do much wickedness.” I thought we did “good” around the world and were the most benevolent and giving aid country; and that is partly correct. I was still pondering these thoughts several years later while by myself camped out on the Galilee in Israel for 11 days reading the gospels. Someone had given me a book to witness to unbelievers while in Israel, saying to me, “The Lord told me to buy this and give it to you as he has someone you are to give it to.” I replied, “I don’t know anyone here but – whatever.” On the 10th day of my tent camp out between Bethsaida and the Jordan River (At the top of the Galilee) I heard from Him. He said, “fast tomorrow I want you to take the book “They thought for Themselves” (The witness book written by Sid Roth a messianic Jew I had been given which spoke of Jews who had accepted Yahshua-Jesus as Messiah) to the man (I considered a rabid rabbi) who heads up the Kabala college in Safed.” I replied, “No Lord I don’t want to do that.” He replied, “But you will.” I said again, “But I don’t want to.” He replied with finality, “But you will.” Thinking for a moment before I replied to His end of discussion answer I said; “Okay Lord, I will do it, but I want something from you. You told me several years ago that America is Mystery Babylon the whore; and IF that is true, (I still had not determined it was true) I want to know where a safe place is in America to get my family and “ride this out” (The Great Tribulation). I was imagining remote Montana or Wyoming or perhaps even the mountains of Colorado. What I heard next I spoke to no one for over 1 ½ years- I just could not believe it myself. Here’s His reply and sorry, you don’t have years to consider its validity as you may have only weeks or months to both decide and act: “Son there will be nothing left of America, in one hour her destruction will come and the sea captains will marvel at the smoke of her burning.” These thoughts were downloaded me next: It’s a place or country- not a city like most translations say; they are anxious because there is no market left; if it were a city- they would just transfer their market to a different city, but that’s obviously not an option. Nothing left- only a place for every unclean bird (demonic spirits). Please pray about and ask for yourself concerning these matters as we can be protected anywhere we are told to be. You cannot be directed by someone else revelation or understanding, you must seek confirmation as you and I are both required to rightly divide the word and a matter is not truth without 2 or 3 witnesses confirming. May be time to fast and pray and rid ourselves of all unbelief- that we may hear clearly and obey what He shows us personally. Please don’t assume anything, but seek Him while He may be found and obey Him! He alone will be our Deliverer and refuge! In your consideration of these times and this testimony; remember we are a 3 part being. We are a spirit being made in YHWH’s image; we have a soul (Mind, will, intellect, emotion); and physical- we live in a body- so we are spirit, soul, and body. My belief is that we likely must “Come out of her” (Babylon the whore) in all three areas: spiritually or the whore church or religious system because it is about relationship not religion or duty; soul or culture that is demonic or worldly; and physically – like places or country or even countries. Consider carefully for yourself and your loved ones.

We are definitely not yet in the final 42 months called the Great Tribulation (Possibly- according to my friend Michael Rood not even in the last 7 years as he sees the Zechariah nuclear war as confirmation of the Covenant) (Not a 7 year Great Tribulation) as it is time, times, and a half time or 1 year plus 2 years plus ½ year (3 ½ years) as Daniel stated. (The 7 years is likened to the 7 years each of famine/good that Joseph was a shadow picture by gathering the 12 brothers as likened to Yahshua coming for us- the lost sheep of Israel; gathered to Yahshua by the process of being “Born Again”) The 7 years of good years and the last 7 years of bad years we are now likely in the midst of. We are NOT YET in the final 31/2 years of Great Tribulation due to this Scripture promise which guarantees a great falling away and the man of lawlessness (breaking YHWH’S laws) or the son of perdition, the anti-messiah or anti-christ which will command us to worship him and the false prophet which will agree with him- (Head of the world religion which will likely be the next and last Pope) This man must be revealed (not speculation) first before the Great Tribulation starts. I do suspect we are very close. Remember with me; Yahshua said that when the fig tree (Israel) budded- THAT generation (I believe that a Biblical generation is 70 years) would NOT pass away until it was all fulfilled. My expectation is that this “beginning before the Great Tribulation” could occur any time before Passover 2014- which yes, that leaves my expectation for the Last Trump in September or October time frame of 2017; (If this is possible, then we must see great turmoil and civil unrest first- This is all my EXPECTATION- NOT thus says YHWH!) which fits perfectly with the fig tree (Israel) budding in 1947 (Nov 29) and even if you use 1948; Hebraically the year has not changed from November 1947 to January 1948 as the year starts over Biblically just before Passover which is usually in April or May. So why do I think there will be much trouble and FEMA camps, confiscation of guns etc. even before that 2014 Passover or 2013 Hanukah? (Hanukah 2013 December- is Haman being revealed as a picture or pattern of anti-christ or anti-messiah. He would declare himself God on Passover or thereabouts leaving the 42 months of GREAT TRIBULATION expiring at Feast of Trumpets 2017- the day “no man knows the day or hour”- which most of you know is a Hebrew idiom for Feast of Trumpets- the only Biblically commanded Feast or Moedim that you can never know the day or hour.)  Why before all this? (Luke 21:8)  And He said, “See that you are not led astray, (deceived/deluded) for many shall come in My Name, saying, ‘I am,’ and, ‘The time is near.’ Then do not go after them. (Luke 21:9)  “But when you hear of fighting and unrests do not be alarmed, for these have to take place first, but the end is not immediately.” (Luke 21:10)  Then He said to them, Nation (race-ethnos) shall rise against nation (race-ethnos), and reign against reign. (Luke 21:11)  “And there shall be great earthquakes in various places, and scarcities of food (famine) and deadly diseases. And there shall be horrors, and great signs from heaven. (Luke 21:12)  “But before all this, they shall lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the congregations and prisons, and be brought before sovereigns and rulers for My Name’s sake. (Luke 21:13)  “And it shall turn out to you for a witness. (Luke 21:14)  “Therefore, resolve in your hearts not to premeditate on what to answer. (Luke 21:15)  “I shall give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries shall not be able to refute or resist. (Luke 21:16)  “And you shall also be betrayed by parents and brothers and relatives and friends. And some of you shall be put to death. (Luke 21:17)  And you shall be hated by all because of My Name.

Truth Searcher, we should get some confirmation about when the Last Trump is because that will help us understand the last 7 (Shiḇah in Hebrew). Let’s look closely together at Daniel Chap 9, which discusses our Messiah’s return and covenant. I have highlighted some Scriptures for your consideration; that we may refresh our thoughts and understand. My friend Michael Rood (whom I consider a mentor) suggests the probability that the Zechariah 5 nuclear attack is the overwhelming scourge that confirms Messiah’s covenant and starts the Last 7 years, which he suggests likely begins in 2017 and ends Feast of Trumpets 2024. At this point I do not totally agree with that but I definitely see the possibility. One way we will know if we have another 7 years added to 2017 (before the Last Trump) is to not see the anti-messiah- anti-christ revealed and declaring he is god by Passover 2014.  Judgment and destruction is how Daniel 9 clearly states how YHWH confirms HIS covenant with His people. The rounding up of Americans to FEMA death camps or spraying us with plagues via chemtrails might be His judgment which may have already started THE 7 YEARS. Judgment IS for disobedience as a people. Remember with me that keeping HIS Sabbath is a SIGN forever between Him and His grafted in people:

(Exodus 31:15) ‘Six days work is to be done; and the seventh day is a Sabbath of rest, set-apart to יהוה. Everyone doing work on the Sabbath day shall certainly be put to death. (Exodus 31:16)  ‘The children of Yisra’ĕl shall guard the Sabbath and observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as an everlasting covenant. (Exodus 31:17) Between Me and the children of Yisra’ĕl it is a sign forever. In six days יהוה made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.’ ” The CONFIRMATION OF THE COVENANT is of great import as this is what starts the final 7 years before the LAST TRUMP. Currently, I see the judgment confirming Messiah’s covenant stated in Daniel 9:27 below as general and vast but could certainly include the Zechariah 5 thermonuclear war. You must decide for yourself of course. I for one would certainly prefer having an additional 7 years…I think.

Note how Daniel heard from Heaven…prayer and fasting- a general humbling and repentance

Dan 9:1 In the first year of Dareyawesh the son of Aḥashwĕrosh, of the seed of the Medes, who was set up as sovereign over the reign of the Chaldeans – Dan 9:2 in the first year of his reign I, Dani’ĕl, observed from the Scriptures the number of the years, according to the word of יהוה given to Yirmeyah the prophet, for the completion of the wastes of Yerushalayim would be seventy years. Dan 9:3 so I set my face toward יהוה the Elohim to seek by prayer and supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth, and ashes. 

REPENTING and asking for forgiveness; note first who the covenant is for…

Dan 9:4 And I prayed to יהוה my Elohim, and made confession, and said, “O יהוה, great and awesome Ěl, guarding the covenant and the kindness to those who love Him, and to those who guard His commands.  Dan 9:5We have sinned and done crookedness; did wrong and rebelled- to turn aside from your commands and from your right-rulings. Dan 9:6 “And we have not listened to your servants the prophets, who spoke in Your Name to our sovereigns, our heads, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land. Dan 9:7 “O יהוה, to You is the righteousness, and to us the shame of face, as it is this day – to the men of Yehuḏah, to the inhabitants of Yerushalayim and all Yisra’ĕl, those near and those far off in all the lands to which you have driven them, because of their trespass which they have trespassed against you. Dan 9:8 “O Master to us is the shame of face, to our sovereigns, to our heads, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against you. Dan 9:9 “To יהוה our Elohim are the compassions and forgiveness’s, for we have rebelled against Him. Dan 9:10 “And we have not obeyed the voice of יהוה our Elohim, to walk in His Torot, which He set before us through His servants the prophets. Dan 9:11 “And all Yisra’ĕl- we have transgressed Your Torah, and turned aside, so as not to obey your voice. So the curse and the oath written in the Torah of Mosheh the servant of Elohim have been poured out on us, for we have sinned against Him.

Note HOW Messiah confirms His covenant…He brings upon us great evil which may already be at work…

Dan 9:12 “And He has confirmed His words, which He spoke against us and against our rulers who judged us, by bringing upon us great evil. For under all the heavens there has not been done like what was done to Yerushalayim. Dan 9:13  “As it is written in the Torah of Mosheh, all this evil has come upon us, and we have not entreated the face of יהוה our Elohim, to turn back from our crookednesses, and to study your truth. Dan 9:14 “Hence יהוה has watched over the evil and has brought it upon us. For יהוה our Elohim is righteous in all the works which He has done, but we have not obeyed His voice. Dan 9:15  “And now, O יהוה our Elohim, who brought your people out of the land of Mitsrayim with a strong hand, and made Yourself a Name, as it is this day – we have sinned, we have done wrong! Dan 9:16 “O יהוה, according to all your righteousness, I pray, let your displeasure and your wrath be turned away from your city Yerushalayim, your set-apart mountain. For, because of our sins, and because of the crookednesses of our fathers, Yerushalayim and your people have become a reproach to all those around us.

Comment: we in the USA and most of the world have done wickedly in His eyes and not obeyed His Torah; so we should expect Him to confirm His covenant in like manner. Question is- will it be with missiles flying as in Zechariah 5?  Let’s look now and see. The evil we are now experiencing in the USA is nothing according to the probability of 200 million of us (Some say the number of babies aborted and their innocent blood cries out to YHWH) being destroyed by nuclear, famine, sword and plagues which He sends and those left (survivors) being carried away captive to other lands where we are hated and a reproach among the nations.

Zechariah 5:1 And I lifted up my eyes again, and looked and saw a flying scroll. Zechariah 5:2 and he said to me, “What do you see?” And I answered, “I see a flying scroll, twenty cubits long and ten cubits wide.”  (Comment: a missile the same measurements as a Scud missile) Zechariah 5:3 and he said to me, “This is the curse that goes forth over the face of all the earth: ‘everyone who is stealing shall (NOT should be rendered here; as it enters the house of thieves and liars and destroys them) go unpunished,’ on the one side, according to it, and, ‘everyone who has sworn falsely shall (NOT?) go unpunished,’ on the other side, according to it.” Zechariah 5:4 “I shall send it out,” declares יהוה of hosts, “and it shall come into the house of the thief and the house of the one who shall swear falsely by My Name. And it shall remain in the midst of his house and shall consume it, both its timber and stones.” (Comment: Nuclear- as it consumes stones and wood) Zechariah 5:5 and the messenger who was speaking with me came out and said to me, “Lift up your eyes now, and see what this is that is going forth.” Zechariah 5:6 And I said, “What is it?” And he said, “It is an ĕphah-measure that is going forth.” Again he said, “This is their appearance throughout the earth: Zechariah 5:7 “And see, a lead cover lifted up, and this: a woman (Comment: woman is a mistranslation- ishsha or aysh can be strange or evil fire or a woman with very small differences- this is likely a nuclear fire) sitting inside the ĕphah-measure!” Zechariah 5:8 and he said, “This is Wrongness!” And he threw her down into the ĕphah-measure, and threw the lead weight (Comment: lead protects from radiation) over its mouth. Zechariah 5:9 And I lifted up my eyes, and looked and saw two women (rockets), coming with the wind in their wings. And they had wings like the wings of a stork, and they lifted up the ĕphah-measure between earth and the heavens. Zechariah 5:10 Then I said to the messenger who was speaking to me, “Where are they taking the ĕphah-measure?” Zechariah 5:11 and he said to me, “To build a house for it in the land of Shinʽar (IRAN-IRAQ). And it shall be established and set there on its own base.”

Note that fasting, repentance, and prayer in a humbling repentant state bring Angelic Visions and Understanding.

Dan 9:17 “And now, our Elohim, hear the prayer of your servant, and his supplications, and for the sake of יהוה cause your face to shine on your set-apart place, which is laid waste. Dan 9:18 “O my Elohim, incline your ear and hear. Open your eyes and see our wastes, and the city which is called by Your Name. We do not present our supplications before you because of our righteous deeds, but because of your great compassions. Dan 9:19 “O יהוה, hear! O יהוה, forgive! O יהוה, listen and act! Do not delay for your own sake, my Elohim, for your city and your people are called by Your Name.” Dan 9:20 And while I was speaking, and praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Yisra’ĕl, and presenting my supplication before יהוה my Elohim for the set-apart mountain of my Elohim, Dan 9:21 while I was still speaking in prayer, the man Gaḇri’ĕl, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, came close to me, in swift flight about the time of the evening offering. Dan 9:22 and he made me understand, and talked with me, and said, “O Dani’ĕl, I have now come forth to make you wise concerning understanding. Dan 9:23 “At the beginning of your supplications a word went out, and I have come to make it known, for you are greatly appreciated. So consider the word and understand the vision: Dan 9:24  “Seventy weeks are decreed for your people and for your set-apart city, to put an end to the transgression, and to seal up sins, and to cover crookedness, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up vision and prophet, and to anoint the Most Set-apart. Dan 9:25  “Know, then, and understand: from the going forth of the command to restore and build Yerushalayim until Messiah the Prince is seven weeks and sixty-two weeks. It shall be built again, with streets and a trench, but in times of affliction. Dan 9:26 “And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off (killed) and have naught. And the people of a coming prince (Rome 70 A.D. - Titus) shall destroy the city and the set-apart place. And the end of it is with a flood. And wastes are decreed and fighting until the end. Dan 9:27 And he (Messiah is the only one who keeps covenant with us) shall confirm a covenant with many for one week (7 years).  (During this promised judgment is His protection the Confirmation of His Covenant with us while judgment falls on all who will not repent? And in the middle of the week he shall put an end to slaughtering and meal offering. (Comment: the stopping of the slaughterings/sacrifices by Messiah or the anti-messiah? Which slaughterings/sacrifices have obviously not yet started and only will start after Israel is free to start them; (Maybe due to the Psalm 83 war) this will be marking for the start of the GREAT TRIBULATION 42 months where the mark is given and hasatan, using the anti-messiah or antichrist is revealed and makes war against the believers and overcomes them. And on the wing of abominations he (anti-messiah) shall lay waste, even until the complete end and that which is decreed (judgment) is poured out on the one who lays waste1.” Footnote: 1Mt. 24:15.

Truth seeker; you and I get to study, fast, pray and repent and hear from heaven on these matters for ourselves, because the stakes are very high. Furthermore, remember BEFORE ALL THIS they will lay hands on us and deliver us up to death and we will be given words to say. NOW we really should review some great promises for us who are living in these days with Jacob’s Trouble approaching (Hint: not the Jews only trouble- all of us grafted in as believers and followers of Yahshua are become grafted in ISRAEL) - I want to share an idea Yahshua dropped into my spirit for you; His love is UNCONDITIONAL- However; His promises are forthcoming and guaranteed from our believing Him and IF we really believe Him- we will obey Him as we seek truth and He reveals to us personally. Here’s what He shared: those of us who will obey Him and to the extent we choose to forsake all others in our own self determined levels of obedience; we will be His TREASURE; and NO ONE will be able to remove us from His hand and plan for our lives! No matter what fiery trials come at us- no matter what storm is put in our faces by hasatan to try and get us to speak words of agreement with the plan of hell rather than the words of agreement with our Messiah and King- the word made flesh that dwelled among us and is our DELIVERER! We can easily surmise for this that love to our Creator is shown by our obedience and He considers those that disobey Him to hate Him like He spoke of Ěsaw!

We must forsake traditions that are not lined up with His Torah (Instructions- Word): Our doctrines (DOINGS) MUST line up with the word forever established in Heaven if we expect our Creator to confirm His word with signs and wonders following as also He told Jeremiah- I am watching over my word to perform it!”—

(Jeremiah 1:11) And the word of יהוה came to me, saying, “What do you see, Yirmeyahu?” And I said, “I see a branch of an almond tree.” (Jeremiah 1:12)  And יהוה said to me, You have seen well, for I am watching over my word to do it.”  (Matthew 15:8) ‘This people draw near to me with their mouth, and respect me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. (Matthew 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.

And the King James: (Mat 15:8) this people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honor me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. (Mat 15:9)  But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines (doings) the commandments of men.

(Mar 7:6)  He answered and said unto them, well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, this people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. (Mar 7:7)  Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. (Mar 7:8)  For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do (Mar 7:9) and he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.

He still desires intimacy and that comes from WILLING obedience as that is the only sacrifice that is acceptable to Him! A heart to obey will always receive more instructions whereas a heart in rebellion will be cut off and allowed to stumble until REPENTANCE comes!

Yahshua reminds us: (John 14:20) In that day (Comment: Hebrew idiom for Day of the Lord) 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 (does) 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.” Then we read 1 John: (1Jn 2:15) Do not love the world or that which is in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.1 Footnote: 1Jm. 4:4. (1Jn 2:16)  Because all that is in the world – the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life – is not of the Father but is of the world. (1Jn 2:17)  And the world passes away, and the lust of it, but the one doing the desire of Elohim remains forever.

Loved One- we are manifesting as the sons and daughters of the Creator as we learn to yield and obey. It is called She’mah (HEAR AND OBEY) O’ Israel! May our loving Creator give us the ears to hear Him and the courage to obey Him!

(1Jn 3:1)  See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of Elohim! For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. (1Jn 3:2)  Beloved ones, now we are children of Elohim. And it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. (1Jn 3:3)  And everyone having this expectation in Him cleanses himself, as He is clean. (1Jn 3:4)  Everyone doing sin also does lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness. (1Jn 3:5)  And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin. (1Jn 3:6)  Everyone staying in Him does not sin. Everyone sinning has neither seen Him nor known Him.1 Footnote: 1See 2:4 & 3 John v. 11. (1Jn 3:7)  Little children, let no one lead you astray. The one doing righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous.1 Footnote: 1See 2:29. (1Jn 3:8)  The one doing sin is of the devil, because the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of Elohim was manifested: to destroy the works of the devil.1 Footnote: 1See Titus 2:14. (1Jn 3:9)  Everyone having been born of Elohim does not sin, because His seed stays in him, and he is powerless to sin, because he has been born of Elohim.

“DOING” the Gospel is not only guarding our tongues to agree with YHVH’s words but keeping ourselves pure and undefiled from the world and its systems and culture of whoredoms which contain pagan traditions. Obedience to Torah is FREEDOM!

PURE RELIGION and undefiled is this- take care of widows and orphans and keep ourselves from being polluted (naturally) by the world and its culture! (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. (James 1:26)  If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is worthless. (James 1:27)  Clean and undefiled religion before the Elohim and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained (Unpolluted) from the world.

Really want to know the will of YHWH for your life? Do we really want to know? Here’s how; offer our bodies as a living sacrifice- that is fast and pray and READ and MEDITATE on His Word- yes Torah, the prophets and the Renewed Covenant!

(Rom 12:1)  I call upon you, therefore, brothers, through the compassion of Elohim, to present your bodies a living offering – set-apart, well-pleasing to Elohim – your reasonable worship. (Rom 12:2)  And do not be conformed to this world (Pollution and defiled), but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, (Meditating on the Word) so that you prove what is that good and well-pleasing and perfect desire of Elohim. (His will)

Here are this Week’s Torah Scriptures:  Ekev “Because/On the Heels of”
Deuteronomy 7:12-11:25; Isaiah 49:14-51:11 (Extended); Romans 8:26-39 (Extended)

Father really wants us to obey Him that He may extend His promises to us! Look at the pattern we learn from Moses- as we seek Him in obedience He promises to bless and increase us.

(Deuteronomy 7:12)  “And it shall be, because you hear these right-rulings, and shall guard and do them, that יהוה your Elohim shall guard with you the covenant and the kindness which He swore to your fathers, (Deuteronomy 7:13)  and shall love you and bless you and increase you, and shall bless the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your land, your grain and your new wine and your oil, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flock, in the land of which He swore to your fathers to give you. (Deuteronomy 7:14)  “Blessed are you above all peoples – there is not going to be a barren man or a barren woman among you or among your livestock. (Deuteronomy 7:15)  “And יהוה shall turn away from you all sickness and put on you none of the evil diseases of Mitsrayim which you have known, but He shall put them on all those who hate you. (Deuteronomy 7:16)  “And you shall consume all the peoples whom יהוה your Elohim is delivering over to you – your eye shall not pardon them. And do not serve their mighty ones, for that is a snare to you. (Deuteronomy 7:17)  “When you say in your heart, ‘These nations are greater than I, I am unable to drive them out,’ (Deuteronomy 7:18) do not be afraid of them. Remember well what יהוה your Elohim did to Pharaoh and to all Mitsrayim, (Deuteronomy 7:19) the great trials which your eyes saw, and the signs and the wonders, the strong hand and the outstretched arm, by which יהוה your Elohim brought you out. יהוה your Elohim does so to all the peoples of whom you are afraid. (Deuteronomy 7:20)  “And יהוה your Elohim also sends the hornet among them until those who are left, who hide themselves from you, are destroyed. (Deuteronomy 7:21)  “Do not be afraid of them, for יהוה your Elohim, the great and awesome Ěl, is in your midst. (Deuteronomy 7:22)  “And יהוה your Elohim shall drive out those nations before you, little by little. You are not allowed to destroy them at once, lest the beasts of the field become too numerous for you. (Deuteronomy 7:23)  “But יהוה your Elohim shall deliver them over to you and destroy them with a great destruction until they are consumed. (Deuteronomy 7:24)  “And He shall give their sovereigns into your hand, and you shall destroy their name from under the heavens. No one is going to be able to stand against you until you have destroyed them. (Deuteronomy 7:25)  “The carved images of their mighty ones you are to burn with fire. Do not covet the silver or gold that is on them, nor take it for yourselves, lest you be snared by it, for it is an abomination to יהוה your Elohim. (Deuteronomy 7:26)  “And do not bring an abomination into your house, lest you be accursed like it. Utterly loathe it and utterly hate it, for it is accursed.

Our very lives will depend on our obedience!

(Deuteronomy 8:1)  “Guard to do every command which I command you today, that you might live, and shall increase, and go in, and shall possess the land of which יהוה swore to your fathers. (Deuteronomy 8:2)  “And you shall remember that יהוה your Elohim led you all the way these forty years in the wilderness, to humble you, prove you, to know what is in your heart, whether you guard His commands or not. (Deuteronomy 8:3)  “And He humbled you, and let you suffer hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, to make you know that man does not live by bread alone, but by every Word that comes from the mouth of יהוה1. Footnote: 1Messiah quotes this in Mt. 4:4 and in Luke. 4:4. (Deuteronomy 8:4) “Your garments did not wear out on you, nor did your foot swell these forty years. (Deuteronomy 8:5)  “Thus you shall know in your heart that as a man disciplines his son, so יהוה your Elohim disciplines you, (Deuteronomy 8:6)  therefore you shall guard the commands of יהוה your Elohim, to walk in His ways and to fear Him. (Deuteronomy 8:7)  “For יהוה your Elohim is bringing you into a good land, a land of streams of water, of fountains and springs, that flow out of valleys and hills, (Deuteronomy 8:8)  a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey, (Deuteronomy 8:9)  a land in which you eat bread without scarcity, in which you do not lack at all, a land whose stones are iron and out of whose hills you dig copper. (Deuteronomy 8:10)  “And you shall eat and be satisfied, and shall bless יהוה your Elohim for the good land which He has given you. (Deuteronomy 8:11)  “Be on guard, lest you forget יהוה your Elohim by not guarding His commands, and His right-rulings, and His laws which I command you today, (Deuteronomy 8:12)  lest you eat and shall be satisfied, and build lovely houses and shall dwell in them, (Deuteronomy 8:13)  and your herds and your flocks increase, and your silver and your gold are increased, and all that you have is increased, (Deuteronomy 8:14)  that your heart then becomes lifted up, and you forget יהוה your Elohim who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, from the house of bondage, (Deuteronomy 8:15)  who led you through that great and awesome wilderness – fiery serpents and scorpions and thirst – where there was no water, who brought water for you out of the flinty rock, (Deuteronomy 8:16)  who fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your fathers did not know, in order to humble you and to try you, to do you good in the end, (Deuteronomy 8:17)  you then shall say in your heart, ‘My power and the strength of my hand have made for me this wealth!’ (Deuteronomy 8:18)  “But you shall remember יהוה your Elohim, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, in order to establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is today. (Deuteronomy 8:19)  “And it shall be, if you by any means forget יהוה your Elohim, and follow other mighty ones, and serve them and bow yourself to them, I have warned you this day that you shall certainly perish. (Deuteronomy 8:20)  “Like the nations which יהוה is destroying before you, so you are to perish, because you did not obey the voice of יהוה your Elohim. 

We also will dispossess those stronger than us- yep even black cobra attack helicopters and giants hehe

(Deuteronomy 9:1)  “Hear, O Yisra’ĕl: You are passing over the Yardĕn today, to go in to dispossess nations greater and stronger than yourself, cities great and walled up to the heavens, (Deuteronomy 9:2) a people great and tall, the descendants of the Anaqim, whom you know, and of whom you heard it said, ‘Who does stand before the descendants of Anaq?’ (Deuteronomy 9:3)  “And you shall know today that יהוה your Elohim is He who is passing over before you as a consuming fire – He does destroy them and subdue them before you. So you shall dispossess them and destroy them quickly, as יהוה has said to you. (Deuteronomy 9:4)  “Do not think in your heart, after יהוה your Elohim has driven them out before you, saying, ‘Because of my righteousness יהוה has brought me in to possess this land.’ But it is because of the wrong of these nations that יהוה is driving them out from before you. (Deuteronomy 9:5)  “It is not because of your righteousness or the uprightness of your heart that you go in to possess their land, but because of the wrong of these nations that יהוה your Elohim drives them out from before you, in order to establish the word which יהוה swore to your fathers, to Aḇraham, to Yitsḥaq, and to Yaʽaqoḇ. (Deuteronomy 9:6)  “And you shall know that יהוה your Elohim is not giving you this good land to possess because of your righteousness, for you are a stiff-necked people. (Deuteronomy 9:7)  “Remember, do not forget how you provoked to wrath יהוה your Elohim in the wilderness. From the day that you came out of the land of Mitsrayim until you came to this place, you have been rebellious against יהוה. (Deuteronomy 9:8)  “Even in Ḥorĕḇ you made יהוה wroth, so that יהוה was enraged with you, to destroy you. (Deuteronomy 9:9)  “When I went up into the mountain to receive the tablets of stone, the tablets of the covenant which יהוה made with you, then I stayed on the mountain forty days and forty nights. I did not eat bread nor did I drink water. (Deuteronomy 9:10)  “Then יהוה gave me the two tablets of stone written with the finger of Elohim, and on them were all the Words which יהוה had spoken to you on the mountain from the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly. (Deuteronomy 9:11)  “And it came to be, at the end of forty days and forty nights, that יהוה gave me the two tablets of stone, the tablets of the covenant. (Deuteronomy 9:12)  “Then יהוה said to me, ‘Arise, go down quickly from here, for your people whom you brought out of Mitsrayim have acted corruptly. They have quickly turned aside from the way which I commanded them; they have made themselves a molded image.’ (Deuteronomy 9:13)  “And יהוה spoke to me, saying, ‘I have seen this people, and look, they are a stiff-necked people. (Deuteronomy 9:14)  ‘Leave Me alone, so that I destroy them and blot out their name from under the heavens, and make of you a nation stronger and greater than they.’ (Deuteronomy 9:15)  “So I turned and came down from the mountain, and the mountain burned with fire. And the two tablets of the covenant were in my two hands. (Deuteronomy 9:16)  “And I looked and saw that you had sinned against יהוה your Elohim, and had made for yourselves a molded calf! You had quickly turned aside from the way which יהוה had commanded you. (Deuteronomy 9:17)  “And I took the two tablets and threw them out of my two hands and broke them before your eyes, (Deuteronomy 9:18) “and I fell down before יהוה, as at the first, forty days and forty nights. I did not eat bread and I did not drink water, because of all your sins which you committed in doing evil in the eyes of יהוה, to provoke Him. (Deuteronomy 9:19)  “For I was afraid of the displeasure and rage with which יהוה was wroth with you, to destroy you. But יהוה listened to me that time once more. (Deuteronomy 9:20)  “And יהוה was very enraged with Aharon, to destroy him, so I prayed for Aharon at that time also. (Deuteronomy 9:21)  “And I took your sin, the calf which you had made, and burned it with fire and crushed it and ground it very small, until it was as fine as dust. And I threw its dust into the stream that came down from the mountain. (Deuteronomy 9:22)  “And at Taḇʽĕrah and at Massah and at Qiḇroth Hatta’awah you made יהוה wroth. (Deuteronomy 9:23)  “And when יהוה sent you from Qaḏĕsh Barnĕa, saying, ‘Go up and possess the land which I have given you,’ then you rebelled against the mouth of יהוה your Elohim, and you neither trusted Him nor listened to His voice. (Deuteronomy 9:24)  “You have been rebellious against יהוה from the day that I knew you. (Deuteronomy 9:25)  “So I fell down before יהוה the forty days and forty nights, for I fell down because יהוה had said He would destroy you. (Deuteronomy 9:26)  “And I prayed to יהוה, and said, ‘O Master יהוה, do not destroy your people and your inheritance whom You have redeemed in Your greatness, whom you have brought out of Mitsrayim with a strong hand. (Deuteronomy 9:27)  ‘Remember your servants, Aḇraham, Yitsḥaq, and Yaʽaqoḇ. Do not look on the stubbornness of this people, or on their wrong or on their sin, (Deuteronomy 9:28) lest the land from which you brought us should say, “Because יהוה was not able to bring them to the land which He promised them, and because He hated them, He has brought them out to kill them in the wilderness.” (Deuteronomy 9:29)  ‘And they are your people and your inheritance, which you brought out by your great power and by your outstretched arm.’

TEN WORDS (Instructions/Commands)

(Deuteronomy 10:1)  “At that time יהוה said to me, ‘Hew for yourself two tablets of stone like the first, and come up to me on the mountain. And you shall make yourself an ark of wood, (Deuteronomy 10:2) then I write on the tablets the Words that were on the first tablets, which you broke. And you shall put them in the ark.’ (Deuteronomy 10:3)  “So I made an ark of acacia wood, hewed two tablets of stone like the first, and went up the mountain, with the two tablets in my hand. (Deuteronomy 10:4)  “And He wrote on the tablets according to the first writing, the Ten Words, which יהוה had spoken to you in the mountain from the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly. Then יהוה gave them to me, (Deuteronomy 10:5)  and I turned and came down from the mountain, and put the tablets in the ark which I had made. And they are there, as יהוה commanded me.” (Deuteronomy 10:6)  Now the children of Yisra’ĕl set out from the wells of Benĕi Yaʽaqan to Mosĕrah. Aharon died there, and he was buried there. And Elʽazar his son became priest in his place. (Deuteronomy 10:7)  From there they set out to Guḏgoḏah and from Guḏgoḏah to Yotḇathah, a land of rivers of water. (Deuteronomy 10:8)  At that time יהוה separated the tribe of Lĕwi to bear the ark of the covenant of יהוה, to stand before יהוה, to serve Him, and to bless in His Name, to this day. (Deuteronomy 10:9)  Therefore Lĕwi has neither portion nor inheritance with his brothers. יהוה is his inheritance, as יהוה your Elohim promised him. (Deuteronomy 10:10)  “And I stayed in the mountain for forty days and forty nights. And יהוה heard me at that time also, and יהוה chose not to destroy you. (Deuteronomy 10:11)  “And יהוה said to me, ‘Arise, go before the people, to set out, and let them go in and possess the land which I swore to their fathers to give them.’ (Deuteronomy 10:12)  “And now, Yisra’ĕl, what is יהוה your Elohim asking of you, but to fear יהוה your Elohim, to walk in all His ways and to love Him, and to serve יהוה your Elohim with all your heart and with all your being, (Deuteronomy 10:13) to guard the commands of יהוה and His laws which I command you today for your good? (Deuteronomy 10:14)  “See, the heavens and the heaven of heavens belong to יהוה your Elohim, also the earth with all that is in it. (Deuteronomy 10:15)  יהוה delighted only in your fathers, to love them. And He chose their seed after them, you above all peoples1, as it is today. Footnote: 1See also 7:6, 14:2, 26:18, Ps. 135:4 and Amos 3:2. (Deuteronomy 10:16)  “And you shall circumcise the foreskin of your heart, and harden your neck no more. (Deuteronomy 10:17)  “For יהוה your Elohim is Elohim of mighty ones and Master of masters, the great Ěl, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality nor takes a bribe. (Deuteronomy 10:18)  “He executes right-ruling for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the stranger, giving him food and a garment. (D (Deuteronomy 10:20) “Fear יהוה your Elohim. Serve Him, and cling to Him, and swear by His Name. (Deuteronomy 10:21)  “He is your praise, and He is your Elohim, who has done for you these great and awesome deeds which your eyes have seen. (Deuteronomy 10:22)  “Your fathers went down to Mitsrayim with seventy beings, and now יהוה your Elohim has made you as numerous as the stars of the heavens.


(Deuteronomy 11:1)  And you shall love יהוה your Elohim and guard His Charge1: even His laws, and His right-rulings, and His commands, always. Footnote: 1See Gen. 26:5. (Deuteronomy 11:2)  “And you shall know today – for it is not your children who have not known and who have not seen the discipline of יהוה your Elohim, His greatness, His strong hand and His outstretched arm, (Deuteronomy 11:3)  and His signs, and His works which He had done in the midst of Mitsrayim, to Pharaoh sovereign of Mitsrayim, and to all his land; (Deuteronomy 11:4)  and that which He had done to the army of Mitsrayim, to their horses and their chariots, when He made the waters of the Sea of Reeds overflow them as they pursued you, and how יהוה has destroyed them to this day; (Deuteronomy 11:5)  and what He had done for you in the wilderness till you came to this place; (Deuteronomy 11:6)  and what He had done to Dathan and Aḇiram the sons of Eliyaḇ, son of Re’uḇĕn, when the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them up, and their households, and their tents, and all the living creatures that were in their possession, in the midst of all Yisra’ĕl. (Deuteronomy 11:7)  “Yours are the eyes that saw all the great work of יהוה, which He did. (Deuteronomy 11:8)  “And you shall guard every command which I command you today, so that you are strong, and shall go in, and shall possess the land which you are passing over to possess, (Deuteronomy 11:9) and to prolong your days in the land which יהוה swore to give your fathers, to them and their descendants, a land flowing with milk and honey. (Deuteronomy 11:10)  “For the land which you are going in to possess is not like the land of Mitsrayim from which you have come, where you sowed your seed and watered it by foot, as a vegetable garden, (Deuteronomy 11:11) but the land which you are passing over to possess is a land of hills and valleys, which drinks water from the rain of the heavens, (Deuteronomy 11:12) a land which יהוה your Elohim looks after. The eyes of יהוה your Elohim are always on it, from the beginning of the year to the latter end of the year. (Deuteronomy 11:13)  ‘And it shall be that if you diligently obey my commands which I command you today, to love יהוה your Elohim and to serve Him with all your heart and with all your being, (Deuteronomy 11:14) ten I shall give you the rain for your land in its season, the early rain and the latter rain, and you shall gather in your grain, and your new wine, and your oil. (Deuteronomy 11:15)  ‘And I shall give grass in your fields for your livestock, and you shall eat and be satisfied. (Deuteronomy 11:16)  ‘Guard yourselves, lest your heart be deceived, and you turn aside and serve other mighty ones and bow down to them. (Deuteronomy 11:17)  ‘Then the displeasure of יהוה shall burn against you, and He shall shut up the heavens, and there be no rain, and the lands not give its increase. And you shall perish quickly from the good land which יהוה is giving you. (Deuteronomy 11:18)  ‘And you shall lay up these Words1 of Mine in your heart and in your being, and shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. Footnote: 1See footnote at 5:22. (Deuteronomy 11:19)  ‘And you shall teach them to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise up, (Deuteronomy 11:20)  and shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates, (Deuteronomy 11:21)  so that your days and the days of your children are increased on the soil of which יהוה swore to your fathers to give them, as the days of the heavens on the earth. (Deuteronomy 11:22)  ‘For if you diligently guard all these commands which I command you, to do it, to love יהוה your Elohim, to walk in all His ways, and to cling to Him, (Deuteronomy 11:23)  then יהוה shall drive out all these nations before you, and you shall dispossess greater and stronger nations than you. (Deuteronomy 11:24)  ‘Every place on which the sole of your foot treads is yours: from the wilderness, and Leḇanon, from the river, the River Euphrates, even to the Western Sea is your border. (Deuteronomy 11:25)  ‘No man shall stand against you. יהוה your Elohim shall put the dread of you and the fear of you upon all the land where you tread, as He has spoken to you.

He has not forsaken us and will never forget us- but we have forgotten Him- It’s time we TESHUVA! (REPENT!)

(Isa 49:14)  But Tsiyon says, “יהוה has forsaken me, and יהוה has forgotten me.” (Isa 49:15)  “Would a woman forget her nursing child, and not have compassion on the son of her womb? Though they forget, I never forget you. (Isa 49:16)  “See, I have inscribed you on the palms of my hands; your walls are always before me. (Isa 49:17) “Your sons shall hurry; your destroyers and those who laid you waste depart from you. (Isa 49:18)  “Lift up your eyes round about and see, all of them gathers together and come to you. As I live,” declares יהוה, “you shall put on all of them as an ornament, and bind them on you as a bride does. (Isa 49:19)  “For your wastes, and your deserted places, and the land of your destruction, shall soon be too narrow for the inhabitants, while those who swallowed you up are far away. (Isa 49:20)  “The sons of your bereavement shall yet say in your ears, ‘The place is too narrow for me, make room for me to live.’ (Isa 49:21)  “And you shall say in your heart, ‘Who has brought forth these for me, since I am bereaved and barren, an exile, and wandering to and fro? And who reared them? See, I was left alone – from where did these come?’ ” (Isa 49:22) thus said the Master יהוה, “See, I lift my hand up to the gentiles, and set up my banner for the peoples; and they shall bring your sons in their arms, and your daughters carried on their shoulders; (Isa 49:23)  “And sovereigns shall be your foster fathers, and their sovereignesses your nursing mothers. They bow down to you with their faces to the earth, and lick up the dust of your feet. And you shall know that I am יהוה – those who wait for me shall not be ashamed.” (Isa 49:24)  Is prey taken from the mighty, and the captives of the righteous delivered? (Isa 49:25)  Thus says יהוה “Even the captives of the mighty are taken away and the prey of the ruthless is delivered. and I strive with him who strives with you, and I save your children. (Isa 49:26)  “And I shall feed those who oppress you with their own flesh, and let them drink their own blood as sweet wine. All flesh shall know that I, יהוה, am your Savior, and your Redeemer, the Elohim of Yaʽaqoḇ.” (Isa 50:1)  Thus says יהוה, “Where is the certificate of your mother’s divorce, whom I have put away? Or which of my creditors is it to whom I have sold you? Look, you were sold for your crookednesses, and your mother was put away for your transgressions. (Isa 50:2)  “When I came, why was there no one? When I called, why was there no one to answer? Was my hand too short to redeem? Or have I no power to deliver? See, by my rebuke I dry up the sea, I make the rivers a wilderness; their fish stink for there is not water, and die of thirst. (Isa 50:3)  “I clothe the heavens with darkness, and I make sackcloth their covering.” (Isa 50:4)  The Master יהוה has given me the tongue of taught ones that I should know to help the weary with a word. He wakes me morning by morning; he wakes my ear to hear as taught ones. (Isa 50:5)  The Master יהוה has opened my ear, and I was not rebellious, nor did I turn away. (Isa 50:6)  I gave my back to those who struck me, and my cheeks to those who plucked out the beard, I did not hide my face from humiliation and spitting. (Isa 50:7)  And the Master יהוה helps me; therefore I shall not be humiliated. So I have set my face like a flint, and I know that I am not put to shame. (Isa 50:8)  Near is He who declares me right. Who would contend with me? Let us stand together. Who is my adversary? Let him come near me. (Isa 50:9)  See, the Master יהוה helps me. Who would declare me wrong? See, all of them wear out like a garment, a moth eats them. (Isa 50:10)  Who among you fears יהוה, obeying the voice of His Servant, that has walked in darkness and has no light? Let him trust in the Name of יהוה and lean upon his Elohim! (Isa 50:11)  See, all you who light a fire, girding on burning arrows: walk in the light of your fire and in the burning arrows you have lit. From my hand you shall have this: you shall lie down in grief! (Isa 51:1)  “Listen to me, you who pursue righteousness, seeking יהוה: Look to the rock you were hewn from, and to the hole of the pit you were dug from. (Isa 51:2)  “Look to Aḇraham your father, and to Sarah who bore you. He was alone when I called him, and I blessed him and increased him. (Isa 51:3)  “For יהוה shall comfort Tsiyon, He shall comfort all her waste places. He makes her wilderness like Ěḏen, and her desert like the garden of יהוה. Joy and gladness are found in it, thanksgiving and the voice of song.

Walking in His power comes from us yielding to His Spirit and allowing the direction of our lives to be changed by Him- my expectation is; if we will not trust Him by yielding our tongues to Him, we will never reach our destiny in Him and we have not really surrendered our lives at all! He promises us we can trust Him in this seeking: (Luke 11:10) “For everyone asking receives, and he who is seeking finds, and to him who is knocking it shall be opened. (Luke 11:11)  “And what father among you whose son asks for bread shall give him a stone, or if he asks for a fish shall give him a snake instead of a fish, (Luke 11:12) or if he asks for an egg shall give him a scorpion? (Snakes and scorpions represent the demonic realm here as indicated in Luke 10:18-20)- (Luke 10:18) And He said to them, “I saw Satan falling out of the heaven as lightning. (Luke 10:19)  “See, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and none at all shall hurt you. (Luke 10:20)  “But do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names have been written in the heavens.”

He promises to disallow the demonic realm for truth seekers who seek to yield our tongues to His Spirit and allow Him to Mikveh (baptize) us in His Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) Here’s why this is important as our tongues direct us like a ship’s rudder or a bridle to a horse! (James 3:2)  For we all stumble in many matters. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect 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.

Here’s our protection in seeking this supernatural and regular help Guaranteed by Yahshua!

(Luke 11:13)  If you then, being wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your Father from heaven give the Set-apart Spirit to those asking Him!”

Since we don’t always know how to pray it is essential truth seeking loved one- to receive the Mikveh of His Spirit! Note also that this is HOW He works things for good for us when we don’t even know what we are praying sometimes! (Rom 8:26)  And in the same way the Spirit does help in our weaknesses. We do not know what we should pray, but the Spirit Himself pleads our case for us with groaning’s unutterable. (Comment” not our normal and understandable speech- but He understands)  (Rom 8:27)  And He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the set-apart ones according to Elohim. (Rom 8:28)  And we know that all matters work together for good to those who love Elohim, to those who are called according to His purpose. (Rom 8:29)  Because those whom He knew beforehand, He also ordained beforehand to be conformed to the likeness of His Son, for Him to be the first-born among many brothers. (Rom 8:30)  And whom He ordained beforehand, these He also called, and whom He called, these He also declared right. And whom He declared right, these He also esteemed. (Rom 8:31)  What then shall we say to this? If Elohim is for us, who is against us? (Rom 8:32)  Truly, He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up on behalf of us all – how shall He not, along with Him, freely give us all else? (Rom 8:33)  Who shall bring any charge against Elohim’s chosen ones? It is Elohim who is declaring right. (Rom 8:34)  Who is he who is condemning? It is Messiah who died, and furthermore is also raised up, who is also at the right hand of Elohim, who also makes intercession for us. (Rom 8:35)  Who shall separate us from the love of the Messiah? Shall pressure, or distress, or persecution, or scarcity of food, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? (Rom 8:36)  As it has been written, “For Your sake we are killed all day long, we are reckoned as sheep of slaughter.” (Rom 8:37)  But in all this we are more than overcomers through Him who loved us. (Rom 8:38)  For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor messengers nor principalities nor powers, neither the present nor the future, (Rom 8:39) nor height nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of Elohim which is in Messiah יהושע our Master.

Thanks for your love directed prayers for Billie and me while we travel!

Loved One, I pray you walk in the spirit and not according to the lusts and directions of the flesh. That we may each repent quickly wherever we miss and stumble and hasatan’s snares all miss us. I further pray we ALWAYS forgive and speak forgiveness and blessings on those who do and have done evil against us. They need our love of the Father (Obedience) to break forth and come to our King! This is how they will recognize us; that we have love for one another and our King! It is the LOVE of YHWH that draws men to repentance- not our knowledge! Loved One, I pray YOU make every effort to love the Creator according to His desires and not our learned ones that are filled with pagan ritual both in Churchianity and Judaism. I pray you gain an ear to hear Him and the courage to obey Him! Thanks for your continued prayers for Billie and me- they are cherished- we thank you! Thank you! And THANK YOU! You are much loved!

Shalom to your heart and home loved ones!


Why we are on a different schedule of the Torah Cycle than the mainstream and the Orthodox. For me it is about restoration of all things- which sometimes means 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 again together; (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 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.
