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- explanation is continued at end of this week’s study…

Here’s what we learned last week: Let’s change what we speak if our facts and circumstances don’t seem to line up with His promises- which is nearly ALWAYS the case because we have some enemies; hasatan and his traps, and our flesh man who wants to rule by what is seen and experienced and desires SELF-EXALTATION. This is the very attribute (Pride-Self-Exaltation) that brought hasatan’s fall and you and I can be assured he will try and use this for our downfall.

Any fool can speak the facts and what is seen; let’s consider speaking agreement (against the facts) with Yahshua’s words for us. Now let’s look at what Scripture warns you and me about concerning our dilemma and need for Yahshua’s presence! We will (we must) take every thought captive to the obedience of our Messiah and KING! Here are a few of the obvious tools against us in stealing and destroying YHWH’s seed (Word) that is planted in us;

(Mar 4:11)  And He said to them, “To you it has been given to know the secret of the reign of Elohim, but to those who are outside, all are done in parables, (Mar 4:12)  so that ‘seeing they see but do not perceive, and hearing they hear but do not understand, lest they should turn and their sins be forgiven them.’ ”1 Footnote: 1Mt.13:15. (Mar 4:13)  And He said to them, “Do you not understand this parable? How then shall you understand all the parables? (Mar 4:14)  “The sower sows the word. (Mar 4:15)  “These, then, are the ones by the wayside where the word is sown. And when they hear, Satan comes immediately and takes away the word that was sown in their hearts. (Mar 4:16)  “And likewise these are the ones sown on rocky places, who, when they hear the word, immediately receive it with joy, (Mar 4:17) and they have no root in themselves, but are short-lived. Then when pressure or persecution arises because of the word, immediately they stumble. (Mar 4:18)  “And others are those sown among thorns, these are they who hear the word, (Mar 4:19) and the cares of this age (worries of everyday life), and the deceitfulness of riches (it can become our trusted source and our “god”), and the desires for other matters (stuff and the lust and desire of things-possessions), entering in, choke the word, and it becomes fruitless. (Mar 4:20)  “And those sown on good soil are those who hear the word, and accept it, and bear fruit, some thirtyfold, and some sixty, and some a hundred.” (Mar 4:21)  And He said to them, “Would a lamp be brought to be put under a basket or under a bed? Is it not to be put on a lampstand? (Mar 4:22)  “For whatever is hidden shall be revealed, and whatever has been kept secret, shall come to light.1 Footnote: 1Luke 8:17. (Mar 4:23)  “If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear.” (Mar 4:24)  And He said to them, “Take heed what you hear. With the same measure you use, it shall be measured to you, and more shall be added to you who hear.

Our number one enemy is Yahshua’s enemy- hasatan- who hates us and plans our destruction, and if we do not submit to YHWH fully- he will definitely destroy us. Note that hasatan uses our flesh nature (not our born-again spirit nature) and pride/self-exaltation against us. He will send all manner of the operation and the “need” of our flesh man to rule to tempt us. We must die to self, and Yahshua must rise up in us- to the extent we are willing to submit to our KING- is the extent we will walk in Yahshua’s victory- the victory HE alone paid for. Problem is, most of us are unwilling to die to our own plans and self-exaltation- some to varying degrees of course. BUT WE MUST CHANGE AND NOW! It’s called REPENT! Turn our stiff necks and follow our King! Our goal is Galatians 2:20 and we should speak this over ourselves daily- (paraphrased) “I am crucified in Messiah, I no longer live but Messiah Yahshua dwells in me, the life I now live in this body I live by trust/faith/belief in Him! HalleluYAH!

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

Further instructions from Yahshua that we bear more than NOTHING: (John 15:1) “I am the true vine, and My Father is the gardener. (John 15:2)  “Every branch in me that bears no fruit He takes away. And every branch that bears fruit He prunes, so that it bears more fruit. (John 15:3)  “You are already clean because of the Word which I have spoken to you. (John 15:4)  “Stay in me, and I stay in you. As the branch is unable to bear fruit of itself unless it stays in the vine, so neither you, unless you stay in me.

(John 15:5)  “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who stays in me, and I in him, he bears much fruit. Because without me you are able to do naught! (NOTHING) (John 15:6)  “If anyone does not stay in me, he is thrown away as a branch and dries up. And they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. (John 15:7)  If you stay in me, and My Words stay in you, you shall ask whatever you wish, and it shall be done for you. (John 15:8)  “In this My Father is esteemed, that you bear much fruit, and you shall be my taught ones. (John 15:9)  “As the Father has loved me, I have also loved you. Stay in my love. (John 15:10)  “If you guard my commands, you shall stay in my love, 1 even as I have guarded My Father’s commands and stay in His love. Footnote: 1See 14:15. (John 15:11)  “These words I have spoken to you, so that my joy might be in you, and that your joy might be complete.

Remember with me that what is SEEN (Our facts and circumstance) is indeed only temporary and His promise (Unseen) will be forever! (Mar 13:31)  “The heaven and the earth shall pass away, but my words shall by no means pass away.”  So let’s grasp and confess the plan of YHWH and what Yahshua was sent for: (Rom 10:8) But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” – that is, the word of belief which we are proclaiming (Speaking agreement by Decreeing): (Rom 10:9) that if you confess with your mouth the Master יהושע and believe in your heart that Elohim has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved. (Rom 10:10)  For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and one confesses with the mouth, and so is saved. (Rom 10:11)  Because the Scripture says, “Whoever puts his trust in Him shall not be put to shame.” (Rom 10:12)  Because there is no distinction between Yehuḏite and Greek, for the same Master of all is rich to all those calling upon Him. (Rom 10:13)  Everyone who calls on the Name of יהוה shall be saved.” (The Greek word saved is SOSO and it is defined as saved, healed, made whole and delivered- it means from every attack by hell’s minions!)  So as you and I can easily see above we must confess or speak words that Yahshua- this is not just about salvation for when you die; it is about our deliverance from every attack from hell- we confess (Speak) Yahshua- the WORD! The WORD made flesh and dwelled among us but always the WORD!

(John 1:1)  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim, and the Word was Elohim. (John 1:2)  He was in the beginning with Elohim. (John 1:3)  All came to be through Him, 1 and without Him not even one came to be that came to be. Footnote: 1Eph. 3:9, Col. 1:16, Heb. 1:2, Heb. 11:3, 2 Peter 3:5, Ps. 33:6. (John 1:4)  In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. (John 1:5)  And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

Let’s all recognize a vital TRUTH: (The power of OUR tongues!)

(Pro 18:21)  Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those loving it eat its fruit.

Let’s remember also to not find ourselves in VAIN WORSHIP Let’s not get so enamored with events and daily distractions- that is- usually things we enjoy more than spending time fellowshipping with YHWH- things like TV, games, computer, etc. - as these are labeled as “IDOLS” and restrict us and limits us to vain meaningless worship; which depicts our relationship with our loving Creator. Here’s why we MUST forsake traditions and yes even “hobbies” that are not lined up with His Torah (Instructions- Word-Law): 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.

We must humble ourselves and submit to His words. We change as He will not- He is the same yesterday, today and forever. That only leaves us to change. When we submit- forget now about horizontal relationships changing- we can only submit for ourselves- hasatan will flee and we will receive Yahshua’s peace. He has overcome this world so we can be in good cheer and FEAR NOT! Remember in our loving obedience to our Heavenly Father- we bless those that curse us and pray for those that spitefully use us! (Luke 6:27)  “But I say to you who are hearing: Love your enemies, do good to those hating you. (Luke 6:28)  “Bless those cursing you, and pray for those insulting you.

Many loved ones are full of fear even if I add FEAR NOT before or after the announcement of danger approaching which has been planned by wicked men and demons/aliens (Nephilim?) who are directing them! Naturally, these loved ones reject hearing truth because they do not understand these fiery trials are coming now and they do not recognize that by facing them and growing spiritually we have been created to overcome as we learn to walk by the spirit and not the natural flesh man. They are defending themselves the only way they know how, but there is a much better answer. However; they will never hear us, nor receive His overcoming power until they see us loving them. Then they also can really fear not!

Who are we really? Were we really born for such a time as this? Is this really the “End of the Age”?  These questions are being answered by our testimony- that is what we say and what we do.  We shall overcome by the Blood of the Lamb of YHWH and our Testimony or not overcome at all. All Creation is groaning for the sons and daughters of YHWH to manifest. Seems we will be tried by fire to see if we will walk by His Ruach (Spirit) or not.

Why is it so important that you and I overcome our fears and our trials?

(Rev 21:7)  He that overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his Elohim, and he shall be my son. (Rev 21:8)  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

We are not under condemnation Loved One- hasatan alone is condemned and he purposes to put on us the death and condemnation pronounced on him…

(Rom 8:1)  There is, then, now no condemnation to those who are in Messiah יהושע, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. (Rom 8:2)  For the Torah of the Spirit of the life in Messiah יהושע has set me free from the law of sin and of death. (Rom 8:3)  For the Torah being powerless, in that it was weak through the flesh, Elohim, having His own Son in the likeness of flesh of sin, and concerning sin, condemned sin in the flesh, (Rom 8:4)  so that the righteousness of the Torah should be completed in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. (Rom 8:5)  For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the matters of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the matters of the Spirit.

Are we fearful? YHWH did not give us a spirit of fear… (2Ti 1:7)  For Elohim has not given us a spirit of cowardice (Fear), but of power and of love and of self-control (Sound mind). Walking by the flesh is walking by your own reasoning, what you see, touch, hear, and smell, in the natural realm while walking in the Spirit is yielding to the word of YHWH in loving humbling obedience. (John 14:15)  “If you love me, you shall guard my commands.1 Footnote: 1See Ex. 20:6, vv. 21&23, 1 John 5:2-3, 2 John v. 6.  (John 14:21)  “He who possesses (has) my commands and guards them, it is he who loves me. And he who loves me shall be loved by my Father, and I shall love him and manifest myself to him.”

NOTE ABOVE: We MUST have His commands, and we receive them by humbling ourselves and allow the engrafted word to direct us, and then we MUST obey them. This is what She’mah O Israel is really about- we must listen and obey. There is coming a time when our phones will not work, our internet will not work, and likely a separation from loved ones so we must develop our hearing NOW! (Mat 21:42) יהושע said to them, “Did you never read in the Scriptures, ‘The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief corner-stone. This was from יהוה, and it is marvelous in our eyes’? (Mat 21:43)  “Because of this I say to you: the reign of Elohim shall be taken from you and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits of it. (Mat 21:44)  “And he who falls on this stone shall be broken,1 but on whomever it falls, he shall be pulverized.” Footnote: 1 Rom. 8:10 & 13, Col. 3:5. That’s it in a nutshell Loved One; we will fall on the Word of YHWH and die to our own will, or He will fall on us and pulverize us!

We do not live according to our natural reason and flesh nature- Or we will surely die!

(Rom 8:6)  The mind of the flesh is death, but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace. (Rom 8:7)  Because the mind of the flesh is enmity towards Elohim, for it does not subject itself1 to the Torah of Elohim2, neither indeed is it able, Footnotes: 1Or does not obey. 2Johnn 15:5, 1 John 4:4, 1 John 3:9, 1 John 5:18. (Rom 8:8) and those who are in the flesh are unable to please Elohim. (Rom 8:9)  But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of Elohim dwells in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Messiah, this one is not His. (Rom 8:10)  And if Messiah is in you, the body is truly dead on account of sin, but the Spirit is life on account of righteousness. (Rom 8:11)  And if the Spirit of Him who raised יהושע from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Messiah from the dead shall also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit dwelling in you. (Rom 8:12)  So then, brothers, we are not debtors to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. (Rom 8:13)  For if you live according to the flesh, you are going to die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you shall live. (Rom 8:14)  For as many as are led by the Spirit of Elohim, these are sons of Elohim. (Rom 8:15)  You did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.”

Who are we? Many think that they are the bride because they went forward one time and “Accepted Jesus” (NOT! Bear fruit worthy of repentance!). He doesn’t need our acceptance He wants us to obey Him so He can bless us (Which is LOVE- John 14:21) and we will grow into His image! Where is our love for others? Do we really think we are “Torah Keepers” If we do not love others? (John 13:35)  By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love one to another.

Not everyone who calls Him Lord, Lord will enter the Kingdom, but only those who do the will of the Father! Yahshua pointed out who family really is Loved one; (Mat 12:46) While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him. (Mat 12:47)  Then one said unto him, Behold, your mother and your brothers stand without, desiring to speak with you. (Mat 12:48)  But he answered and said unto him that told him, who is my mother? And who are my brothers? (Mat 12:49)  And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, behold my mother and my brothers! (Mat 12:50)  Whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother. There you have truth about who Yahshua says is FAMILY! You!

Here’s how we KNOW we are His children- the Ruach bears witness to us!

(Rom 8:16)  The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of Elohim, (Rom 8:17) and if children, also heirs – truly heirs of Elohim, and co-heirs with Messiah, if indeed we suffer with Him, in order that we also be exalted together. (Rom 8:18)  For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the esteem that is to be revealed in us. (Rom 8:19)  For the intense longing1 of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of Elohim. Footnote: 1Lit. Anxiously looking with outstretched head. (Rom 8:20)  The creation was subjected to futility, not from choice, but because of Him who subjected it, in anticipation, (Rom 8:21) that the creation itself also shall be delivered from the bondage to corruption into the esteemed freedom of the children of Elohim. (Rom 8:22)  For we know that all the creation groans together, and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now. (Rom 8:23)  And not only so, but even we ourselves who have the first-fruits of the Spirit, we ourselves also groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body. (Rom 8:24)  For in this expectation (Hope or promise of the Word made flesh that dwelled among us) we were saved, but expectation that is seen is not expectation, for when anyone sees, does he expect it? (Rom 8:25)  And if we expect what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with endurance. (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. (Indistinguishable words, prayer language, unknown tongues- which is available to all believers that will humble themselves and yield their tongue and trust Him that they would NOT receive a snake or scorpion) (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.

Okay Loved One, I will try to address how to banish fear from us as we restore childlike faith. Remember, He inhabits the praises of His people! Many would consider worship to be a MEANS to get in the Throne Room and get our prayers answered etc.; but WORSHIP is the carrot or prize, not the means to the prize. Do you and I dance daily before our Creator and tell of His marvelous love and attributes? Do we lose ourselves in His wonderful and merciful love? Do we download His compassion, mercy and love for mankind that we may rightly represent Him? His love is not the natural love of this earth that determines to love as long as we are being loved back- His love is UNCONDITIONAL. Albeit, His blessings are extremely conditional. Our love will fail- His kind of love will never fail. If He is lifted up, He will use us as a light in this darkening world and draw all mankind to Himself. Obviously, we must change into His image and die to our old nature for us to be used of Him. Worship Him who created all things! Understand Loved One; worship takes diligence, practice, and a pure heart. Forgive others quickly that you may be forgiven. Start by lifting your hands in surrender without wrath against anyone and without doubt trusting Him by thanking Him as the old hymn speaks- “Count your blessings count them one by one, count your many blessings, see what YHWH’s done- count your blessings…GIVE HIM THANKS!  (Psalms 100:1)  Raise a shout for יהוה, all the earth! (Psalms 100:2)  Serve יהוה with gladness; Come before His presence with singing. (Psalms 100:3)  Know that יהוה, He is Elohim; He has made us, and we are His – His people and the sheep of His pasture. (Psalms 100:4)  Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him; bless His Name. (Psalms 100:5)  For יהוה is good; His kindness (mercy) is everlasting, And His truth, to all generations. You see, worship is not about us in this relationship, it is all about Him as He alone can provide what we seek- Peace, Love, Mercy, Direction, Provision, Protection, the list is indeed ENDLESS because He is I AM! (Not I was or will be) Since He inhabits the praise of His people, fear cannot stay on us!  With those lessons on our hearts and minds, let’s look at this week’s Torah Scriptures!

Here are this Week’s Torah Scriptures:  Vayeitzey “And He went out”

Genesis 28:10-32:3; Hosea 12:13-14; John Chapter 1

Through great trials and turmoil- Covenant and prayer opens portals to Heaven

(Gen 28:10)  And Yaʽaqoḇ went out from Be’ĕrsheḇa and went toward Ḥaran. (Gen 28:11)  And he came upon a place and stopped over for the night, for the sun had set. And he took one of the stones of that place and put it at his head, and he lay down in that place to sleep. (Gen 28:12)  And he dreamed and saw a ladder set up on the earth, and its top reached to the heavens, and saw messengers (Angels) of Elohim going up and coming down on it. (Gen 28:13)  And see, יהוה stood above it and said, “I am יהוה Elohim of Aḇraham your father and the Elohim of Yitsḥaq. The land on which you are lying, I give it to you and your seed. (Gen 28:14)  “And your seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and you shall break forth to the west and to the east, to the north and the south. And all the clans of the earth shall be blessed in you and in your seed. (Gen 28:15)  “And see, I am with you and shall guard you wherever you go, and shall bring you back to this land. I am not going to leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you.” (Gen 28:16)  And Yaʽaqoḇ awoke from his sleep and said, Truly, יהוה is in this place, and I did not know it.” (Gen 28:17)  And he was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of Elohim, and this is the gate of the heavens!” (Gen 28:18)  And Yaʽaqoḇ rose early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put at his head, set it up as a standing column, and poured oil on top of it. (Gen 28:19)  And he called the name of that place Bĕyth Ěl, however, the name of that city had been Luz previously.

Promise by Jacob to Tithe/Offerings willingly!

(Gen 28:20)  And Yaʽaqoḇ made a vow, saying, “Seeing Elohim is with me, and has kept me in this way that I am going, and has given me bread to eat and a garment to put on – (Gen 28:21)  when I have returned to my father’s house in peace, and יהוה has been my Elohim, (Gen 28:22)  then this stone which I have set as a standing column shall be Elohim’s house, and of all that You give me, I shall certainly give a tenth to You.”

Finding YHWH’s plan and wife for himself!

(Gen 29:1)  And Yaʽaqoḇ moved on and came to the land of the people of the East. (Gen 29:2)  And he looked and saw a well in the field, and saw three flocks of sheep lying by it, for out of that well they watered the flocks, and a large stone was on the well’s mouth. (Gen 29:3)  And all the flocks would be gathered there, and then they would roll the stone from the well’s mouth and water the sheep, and put the stone back in its place on the well’s mouth. (Gen 29:4)  So Yaʽaqoḇ said to them, “My brothers, where are you from?” And they said, “We are from Ḥaran.” (Gen 29:5)  And he said to them, “Do you know Laḇan son of Naḥor?” And they said, “We know him.” (Gen 29:6)  So he said to them, “Is he well?” And they said, “Well. And see, his daughter Raḥĕl is coming with the sheep.” (Gen 29:7)  And he said, “See, it is still high day, not the time for the livestock to be gathered together. Water the sheep, and go and feed them.” (Gen 29:8)  But they said, “We are not allowed until all the flocks are gathered together, and they have rolled the stone from the well’s mouth, then we shall water the sheep.” (Gen 29:9)  While he was still speaking with them, Raḥĕl came with her father’s sheep, for she was a shepherdess. (Gen 29:10)  And it came to be, when Yaʽaqoḇ saw Raḥĕl the daughter of Laḇan his mother’s brother, and the sheep of Laḇan his mother’s brother, that Yaʽaqoḇ went near and rolled the stone from the well’s mouth, and watered the flock of Laḇan his mother’s brother. (Gen 29:11)  And Yaʽaqoḇ kissed Raḥĕl, and lifted up his voice and wept. (Gen 29:12)  And when Yaʽaqoḇ told Raḥĕl that he was her father’s relative and that he was Riḇqah’s son, she ran and told her father. (Gen 29:13)  And it came to be, when Laḇan heard the report about Yaʽaqoḇ his sister’s son, that he ran to meet him, and embraced him and kissed him, and brought him to his house. Then he told Laḇan all these matters. (Gen 29:14)  And Laḇan said to him, “You are indeed my bone and my flesh.” And he stayed with him for a month. (Gen 29:15)  Then Laḇan said to Yaʽaqoḇ, “Because you are my relative, should you therefore serve me for naught? Let me know, what should your wages be?” (Gen 29:16)  And Laḇan had two daughters, the name of the elder was Lĕ’ah, and the name of the younger was Raḥĕl. (Gen 29:17)  And Lĕ’ah’s eyes were weak, but Raḥĕl was lovely of form and appearance. (Gen 29:18)  And Yaʽaqoḇ loved Raḥĕl, so he said, “Let me serve you seven years for Raḥĕl your younger daughter.” (Gen 29:19)  And Laḇan said, “It is better that I give her to you than that I should give her to another man. Stay with me.” (Gen 29:20)  So Yaʽaqoḇ served seven years for Raḥĕl, and they seemed to him but a few days because of the love he had for her. (Gen 29:21)  Then Yaʽaqoḇ said to Laḇan, “Give me my wife, for my days are completed, and let me go in to her.” (Gen 29:22)  And Laḇan gathered all the men of the place and made a feast. (Gen 29:23)  And it came to be in the evening, that he took Lĕ’ah his daughter and brought her to Yaʽaqoḇ. And he went in to her. (Gen 29:24)  And Laḇan gave his female servant Zilpah to his daughter Lĕ’ah as a female servant. (Gen 29:25)  And in the morning it came to be, that see, it was Lĕ’ah. So he said to Laḇan, “What is this you have done to me? Was it not for Raḥĕl that I served you? Why then have you deceived me?” (Gen 29:26)  And Laḇan said, “It is not done this way in our place, to give the younger before the first-born. (Gen 29:27)  “Complete the week of this one, and then we give you this one too, for the service which you shall serve with me still another seven years.” (Gen 29:28)  And Yaʽaqoḇ did so and completed her week. Then he gave him his daughter Raḥĕl too, as wife. (Gen 29:29)  And Laḇan gave his female servant Bilhah to his daughter Raḥĕl as a female servant. (Gen 29:30)  And he also went in to Raḥĕl, and he also loved Raḥĕl more than Lĕ’ah. And he served with Laḇan still another seven years. (Gen 29:31)  And יהוה saw that Lĕ’ah was unloved, and He opened her womb, but Raḥĕl was barren. (Gen 29:32)  And Lĕ’ah conceived and bore a son, and she called his name Re’uḇĕn, for she said, “For יהוה has looked on my affliction, because now my husband is going to love me.” (Gen 29:33)  And she conceived again and bore a son, and said, “Because יהוה has heard that I am unloved, He gave me this son too.” And she called his name Shimʽon. (Gen 29:34)  And she conceived again and bore a son, and said, “Now this time my husband is joined to me, because I have borne him three sons.” So his name was called Lĕwi. (Gen 29:35)  And she conceived again and bore a son, and said, “Now I praise יהוה.” So she called his name Yehuḏah. And she ceased bearing.

The names of the Tribes of Israel! Note also the strategy to get wealth provided!

(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.

(Gen 30:1)  And when Raḥĕl saw that she bore Yaʽaqoḇ no children, Raḥĕl envied her sister, and said to Yaʽaqoḇ, “Give me children, or else I am going to die!” (Gen 30:2)  And Yaʽaqoḇ’s displeasure burned against Raḥĕl, and he said, “Am I in the place of Elohim, who has withheld from you the fruit of the womb?” (Gen 30:3)  And she said, “See, my female servant Bilhah; go in to her, and let her bear for me, and let me be built up from her as well.” (Gen 30:4)  So she gave him Bilhah her female servant as wife, and Yaʽaqoḇ went in to her. (Gen 30:5)  And Bilhah conceived and bore Yaʽaqoḇ a son. (Gen 30:6)  And Raḥĕl said, “Elohim has rightly ruled my case, and has also heard my voice and given me a son.” So she called his name Dan. (Gen 30:7)  And Raḥĕl’s female servant Bilhah conceived again and bore Yaʽaqoḇ a second son. (Gen 30:8)  And Raḥĕl said, “With great wrestling I have wrestled with my sister, and I have overcome.” So she called his name Naphtali. (Gen 30:9)  And Lĕ’ah saw that she had ceased bearing, and she took Zilpah her female servant and gave her to Yaʽaqoḇ as wife. (Gen 30:10)  And Lĕ’ah’s female servant Zilpah bore Yaʽaqoḇ a son. (Gen 30:11)  And Lĕ’ah said, “With Gaḏ!” So she called his name Gaḏ. (Gen 30:12)  And Lĕ’ah’s female servant Zilpah bore Yaʽaqoḇ a second son. (Gen 30:13)  And Lĕ’ah said, “I am blessed, for the daughters shall call me blessed.” So she called his name Ashĕr. (Gen 30:14)  Re’uḇĕn went in the days of wheat harvest and found love-apples in the field, and brought them to his mother Lĕ’ah. And Raḥĕl said to Lĕ’ah, “Please give me some of your son’s love-apples.” (Gen 30:15)  But she said to her, “Is it a small matter that you have taken away my husband? Would you take away my son’s love-apples too?” And Raḥĕl said, “Therefore let him lie with you tonight for your son’s love-apples.” (Gen 30:16)  And when Yaʽaqoḇ came out of the field in the evening, Lĕ’ah went out to meet him and said, “Do come in to me, for indeed, I have hired you with my son’s love-apples.” And he lay with her that night. (Gen 30:17)  And Elohim listened to Lĕ’ah, and she conceived and bore Yaʽaqoḇ a fifth son. (Gen 30:18)  And Lĕ’ah said, “Elohim has given me my hire, because I have given my female servant to my husband.” So she called his name Yissasḵar. (Gen 30:19) And Lĕ’ah conceived again and bore Yaʽaqoḇ a sixth son. (Gen 30:20)  And Lĕ’ah said, “Elohim has presented me with a good present. Now my husband is going to dwell with me, because I have borne him six sons.” So she called his name Zeḇulun. (Gen 30:21)  And afterward she bore a daughter, and called her name Dinah. (Gen 30:22)  And Elohim remembered Raḥĕl, and Elohim listened to her and opened her womb. (Gen 30:23)  And she conceived, and bore a son, and said, “Elohim has taken away my reproach.” (Gen 30:24)  So she called his name Yosĕph, and said, “יהוה has added to me another son.” (Gen 30:25)  And it came to be, when Raḥĕl had borne Yosĕph that Yaʽaqoḇ said to Laḇan, “Send me on my way, to go to my own place and to my land. (Gen 30:26)  “Give my wives and my children for whom I have served you, and let me go, for you yourself know my service which I have done for you.” (Gen 30:27)  And Laḇan said to him, “If I have found favor in your eyes, please stay, for I have diligently watched that יהוה has blessed me for your sake.” (Gen 30:28)  And he said, “Name me your wages, and I give it.” (Gen 30:29)  So he said to him, “You know how I have served you and how your livestock has been with me. (Gen 30:30)  “For the little you had before I came has increased greatly, and יהוה has blessed you since my coming. But now, when am I to provide for my own house too?” (Gen 30:31)  And he said, “What do I give you?” And Yaʽaqoḇ said, “Give me naught! If you do this for me, I shall again feed and guard your flocks: (Gen 30:32) “Let me pass through all your flock today, removing from there all the speckled and spotted sheep, and all the black ones among the lambs, and the spotted and speckled among the goats. And these shall be my wages. (Gen 30:33)  “And my righteousness shall answer for me in time to come, when you come concerning my wages: every one that is not speckled and spotted among the goats, and black among the lambs, it is stolen if it is with me.” (Gen 30:34)  And Laḇan said, “See, let it be according to your word!” (Gen 30:35)  And on that day he set aside the male goats that were speckled and spotted, and all the female goats that were speckled and spotted, every one that had some white in it, and all the black ones among the lambs, and gave them into the hand of his sons. (Gen 30:36)  And he put three days’ journey between himself and Yaʽaqoḇ, and Yaʽaqoḇ fed the rest of Laḇan’s flocks. (Gen 30:37)  And Yaʽaqoḇ took for himself rods of green poplar and of the almond and chestnut trees, peeled white strips in them, and exposed the white which was in the rods. (Gen 30:38)  And he set the rods which he had peeled before the flocks in the gutters, in the watering troughs where the flocks came to drink, and they conceived when they came to drink. (Gen 30:39)  So the flocks conceived before the rods, and the flocks brought forth streaked, speckled, and spotted. (Gen 30:40)  And Yaʽaqoḇ separated the lambs, and made the flocks face toward the streaked and all the black in the flock of Laḇan, but he put his own flocks by themselves and did not put them with Laḇan’s flock. (Gen 30:41)  And it came to be, whenever the strong ones of the flock conceived, that Yaʽaqoḇ placed the rods before the eyes of the flock in the gutters, so they would conceive among the rods. (Gen 30:42)  But when the flocks were weak, he did not put them in, so the weak ones were Laḇan’s and the strong ones Yaʽaqoḇ’s. (Gen 30:43) Thus the man increased very much, and had many flocks, and female and male servants, and camels and donkeys.

The enemy always is a lover of money and stuff! (Trusting in the flesh realm)

(Gen 31:1)  And he heard the words of Laḇan’s sons, saying, “Yaʽaqoḇ has taken away all that was our fathers, and from what belonged to our father he has made all this wealth.” (Gen 31:2)  And Yaʽaqoḇ would look at the face of Laḇan and see that it was not toward him as before. (Gen 31:3)  And יהוה said to Yaʽaqoḇ, “Return to the land of your fathers and to your relatives. And I am with you.” (Gen 31:4)  And Yaʽaqoḇ sent and called Raḥĕl and Lĕ’ah to the field, to his flock, (Gen 31:5)  and said to them, “I see your father’s face, that it is not toward me as before, but the Elohim of my father has been with me. (Gen 31:6)  “And you know that I have served your father with all my strength. (Gen 31:7)  “Yet your father has deceived me and changed my wages ten times, but Elohim did not allow him to do evil to me. (Gen 31:8)  “When he said this, ‘The speckled are your wages,’ then all the flocks bore speckled. And when he said this, ‘The streaked are your wages,’ then all the flocks bore streaked. (Gen 31:9)  “So Elohim has taken away the livestock of your father and given them to me. (Gen 31:10)  “And it came to be, at the time when the flocks conceived, that I lifted my eyes and looked in a dream and saw the rams which leaped upon the flocks were streaked, speckled, and mottled. (Gen 31:11)  “And the Messenger of Elohim spoke to me in a dream, saying, ‘Yaʽaqoḇ.’ And I said, ‘Here I am.’ (Gen 31:12)  “And He said, ‘Lift your eyes now and see, all the rams which leap on the flocks are streaked, speckled, and mottled, for I have seen all that Laḇan is doing to you. (Gen 31:13)  ‘I am the Ěl of Bĕyth Ěl, where you anointed the standing column and where you made a vow to me. Now rise up, get out of this land, and return to the land of your relatives.’ ” (Gen 31:14) And Raḥĕl and Lĕ’ah answered and said to him, “Do we still have any portion or inheritance in our father’s house? (Gen 31:15)  “Are we not reckoned by him as strangers? He has sold us, and also entirely consumed our silver. (Gen 31:16)  “All the wealth which Elohim has taken from our father is ours and our children’s. Now then, do whatever Elohim has told you.” (Gen 31:17)  So Yaʽaqoḇ rose and put his sons and his wives on camels, (Gen 31:18) and he drove off all his livestock and all his possessions which he had acquired, his property of the livestock which he had acquired in Paddan Aram, to go to his father Yitsḥaq in the land of Kenaʽan. (Gen 31:19) And when Laḇan had gone to shear his sheep, Raḥĕl stole the house idols that were her father’s. (Gen 31:20)  And Yaʽaqoḇ deceived Laḇan the Aramean, because he did not inform him that he was about to flee. (Gen 31:21)  And he fled with all that he had. And he rose up and passed over the river, and headed toward the mountains of Gilʽaḏ. (Gen 31:22)  And on the third day Laḇan was told that Yaʽaqoḇ had fled. (Gen 31:23)  Then he took his brothers with him and pursued him for seven days’ journey, and he overtook him in the mountains of Gilʽaḏ.

YHWH protects His own – even giving our enemies warnings to leave us alone!

(Gen 31:24)  But in a dream by night Elohim came to Laḇan the Aramean, and said to him, “Guard yourself that you do not speak to Yaʽaqoḇ either good or evil.” (Gen 31:25)  Then Laḇan overtook Yaʽaqoḇ. Now Yaʽaqoḇ had pitched his tent in the mountains, and Laḇan with his brothers pitched in the mountains of Gilʽaḏ. (Gen 31:26)  And Laḇan said to Yaʽaqoḇ, “What have you done, that you have deceived me, and driven my daughters off like captives taken with the sword? (Gen 31:27)  “Why did you flee secretly and deceive me, and not inform me, and I would have sent you away with joy and songs, with tambourine and lyre? (Gen 31:28)  “And you did not allow me to kiss my sons and my daughters. Now you have been foolish to do this. (Gen 31:29)  “It is in the power of my hand to do evil to you, but the Elohim of your father spoke to me last night, saying, ‘Guard yourself, that you do not speak to Yaʽaqoḇ either good or evil.’ (Gen 31:30)  “And now you have gone because you greatly long for your father’s house, but why did you steal my mighty ones?” (Gen 31:31)  And Yaʽaqoḇ answered and said to Laḇan, “Because I was afraid, for I said, ‘Lest you tear your daughters away from me.’ (Gen 31:32)  “With whomever you find your mighty ones, do not let him live. In the presence of our brothers, see for yourself what is with me and take it with you.” For Yaʽaqoḇ did not know that Raḥĕl had stolen them. (Gen 31:33)  And Laḇan went into Yaʽaqoḇ’s tent, and into Lĕ’ah’s tent, and into the tents of the two female servants, but he did not find them. And he came out of Lĕ’ah’s tent and entered Raḥĕl’s tent. (Gen 31:34)  Now Raḥĕl had taken the house idols and put them in the camel’s saddle, and sat on them. And Laḇan searched all about the tent but did not find them. (Gen 31:35)  And she said to her father, “Let it not displease my master that I am unable to rise before you, for the way of women is with me.” And he searched but did not find the house idols. (Gen 31:36)  And Yaʽaqoḇ was wroth and contended with Laḇan, and Yaʽaqoḇ answered and said to Laḇan, “What is my transgression? What is my sin, that you have hotly pursued me? (Gen 31:37)  “Now that you have searched all my goods what have you found of all your household goods? Set it here before my brothers and your brothers, and let them decide between the two of us! (Gen 31:38)  “These twenty years I have been with you. Your ewes and your female goats have not miscarried their young, and I have not eaten the rams of your sheep. (Gen 31:39)  “That which was torn by beasts I did not bring to you, I myself bore the loss of it. You required it from my hand, whether stolen by day or stolen by night. (Gen 31:40)  Thus I was! By day the heat consumed me, and the frost by night, and my sleep fled from my eyes. (Gen 31:41)  “These twenty years I have been in your house. I served you fourteen years for your two daughters, and six years for your flock, and you have changed my wages ten times. (Gen 31:42)  “Unless the Elohim of my father, the Elohim of Aḇraham and the Fear of Yitsḥaq, had been with me, you would now have sent me away empty-handed. Elohim has seen my affliction and the labor of my hands, and rendered judgment last night.” (Gen 31:43)  And Laḇan answered and said to Yaʽaqoḇ, “These daughters are my daughters, and these children are my children, and this flock is my flock, and all that you see is mine. But what shall I do today to these, my daughters or to their children whom they have borne? (Gen 31:44)  “And now, come, let us make a covenant, you and I, and it shall be a witness between you and me.” (Gen 31:45)  So Yaʽaqoḇ took a stone and set it up as a standing column. (Gen 31:46)  And Yaʽaqoḇ said to his brothers, “Gather stones.” And they took stones and made a heap, and they ate there on the heap. (Gen 31:47)  And Laḇan called it Yeḡar Sahaḏutha, but Yaʽaqoḇ called it Galʽĕḏ. (Gen 31:48)  And Laḇan said, “This heap is a witness between you and me today.” That is why its name was called Galʽĕḏ, (Gen 31:49) also Mitspah, because he said, “Let יהוה watch between you and me when we are out of each other’s sight. (Gen 31:50)  “If you afflict my daughters, or if you take other wives besides my daughters, although no man is with us; see, Elohim is witness between you and me!” (Gen 31:51)  And Laḇan said to Yaʽaqoḇ, “See this heap and see this standing column, which I have placed between you and me. (Gen 31:52)  “This heap is a witness, and this standing column is a witness, which I do not pass beyond this heap to you, and you do not pass beyond this heap and this standing column to me, for evil. (Gen 31:53)  “The Elohim of Aḇraham, the Elohim of Naḥor, and the Elohim of their father rightly rule between us!” And Yaʽaqoḇ swore by the Fear of his father Yitsḥaq. (Gen 31:54) And Yaʽaqoḇ brought an offering on the mountain, and called his brothers to eat bread. And they ate bread and spent the night on the mountain. (Gen 31:55)  And Laḇan rose up early in the morning, and kissed his sons and daughters and blessed them. And Laḇan left and returned to his place.

YHWH always gives us strategy against His enemies! (Jacob I loved but Esaw I hate)

(Gen 32:1)  And Yaʽaqoḇ went on his way, and the messengers (Angels) of Elohim met him. (Gen 32:2)  And when Yaʽaqoḇ saw them, he said, “This is the camp of Elohim.” And he called the name of that place Maḥanayim. (Gen 32:3)  And Yaʽaqoḇ sent messengers before him to Ěsaw his brother in the land of Sĕʽir, the field of Eḏom. (Hosea 12:13)  And by a prophet יהוה brought Yisra’ĕl out of Mitsrayim, and by a prophet he was watched over. (Hosea 12:14)  Ephrayim has provoked most bitterly. So his Master left his blood-guilt on him, and repaid him for his reproach.

Even in Genesis- He is and was the word- that later became flesh and dwelled among us!

(John 1:1)  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim, and the Word was Elohim. (John 1:2)  He was in the beginning with Elohim. (John 1:3)  All came to be through Him, 1 and without Him not even one came to be that came to be. Footnote: 1Eph. 3:9, Col. 1:16, Heb. 1:2, Heb. 11:3, 2 Peter 3:5, Ps. 33:6.

Light of the World gives us power/authority to become His children!

(John 1:4)  In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. (John 1:5)  And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. (John 1:6)  There was a man sent from Elohim, whose name was Yoḥanan. (John 1:7)  This one came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all might believe through him. (John 1:8)  He was not that Light, but that he might bear witness of that Light. (John 1:9)  He was the true Light, which enlightens every man, coming into the world. (John 1:10)  He was in the world, and the world came to be through Him, and the world did not know Him. (John 1:11)  He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. (John 1:12)  As many as received Him, to them He gave the authority to become children of Elohim, to those believing in His Name, (John 1:13) who were born, neither of blood nor of the desire of flesh or of the desire of man, but of Elohim. (John 1:14)  And the Word became flesh and pitched (Dwelled) His tent1 among us, and we saw His esteem (glory), esteem as of an only brought-forth of a father, complete in favor and truth. Footnote: 1An indication that His birth was during the Festival of Booths. (Tabernacles) (John 1:15)  Yoḥanan bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me has become before me, because He was before me.’ ” (John 1:16) And out of His completeness we all did receive, and favor upon favor, (John 1:17) for the Torah was given through Mosheh – the favor (Mercy) and the truth came through יהושע Messiah. (John 1:18)  No one has ever seen Elohim.1 The only brought-forth Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He did declare.2 Footnotes: 1See 5:37, 6:46, 1 John 4:12. 2The pre-existent Son declared, and was the One who appeared to men. (John 1:19)  Now this was the witness of Yoḥanan when the Yehuḏim sent from Yerushalayim priests and Lĕwites to ask him, “Who are you?” (John 1:20)  And he confessed, and did not deny, but confessed, “I am not the Messiah.” (John 1:21)  And they asked him, “What then, are you Ěliyahu?” So he said, “I am not.” “Are you the Prophet?” And he answered, “No.” (John 1:22)  Therefore they said to him, “Who are you, so that we give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself?” (John 1:23)  He said, “I am a voice of one crying in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way of יהוה,’ as the prophet Yeshayahu said.” (John 1:24)  And those sent were of the Pharisees, (John 1:25) and they asked him, saying, “Why then do you immerse if you are not the Messiah, nor Ěliyahu, nor the Prophet?”

Ask Yahshua to Mikveh you in His Spirit and prepare you to produce fruit that will remain in these days- The Day of YHWH!

(John 1:26)  Yoḥanan answered them, saying, “I immerse in water, but in your midst stands One whom you do not know, (John 1:27) the One coming after me, who has become before me, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loosen.” (John 1:28)  This took place in Bĕyth Anyah beyond the Yardĕn, where Yoḥanan was immersing. (John 1:29)  On the next day Yoḥanan saw יהושע coming toward him, and said, “See, the Lamb of Elohim who takes away the sin of the world! 1 Footnote: 1Mt. 1:21, Titus 2:14, 1 John 3:5 & 8. (John 1:30)  “This is He of whom I said, After me comes a Man who has become before me, for He was before me.’1 Footnote: 1See v. 15. (John 1:31)  “And I did not know Him, but that He might be revealed to Yisra’ĕl, therefore I came immersing in water.” (John 1:32)  And Yoḥanan bore witness, saying, “I have seen the Spirit coming down from heaven like a dove and remain on Him. (John 1:33)  “And I did not know Him, but He who sent me to immerse in water said to me, ‘Upon whom you see the Spirit coming down and remaining on Him, this is He who immerses in the Set-apart Spirit.’ (John 1:34)  “And I have seen and have witnessed that this is the Son of Elohim.” (John 1:35)  Again the following day, Yoḥanan was standing with two of his taught ones, (John 1:36) and looking at יהושע walking, he said, “See the Lamb of Elohim!” (John 1:37)  And the two taught ones heard him speaking, and they followed יהושע. (John 1:38)  And יהושע turning, and seeing them following, said to them, “What do you seek?” And they said to Him, “Rabbi” (which means Teacher), “where are you staying?” (John 1:39)  He said to them, “Come and see.” They went and saw where He was staying, and remained with Him that day. Now it was about the tenth hour. (John 1:40)  Andri, the brother of Shimʽon Kĕpha, was one of the two who heard from Yoḥanan, and followed Him. (John 1:41)  First he found his own brother Shimʽon, and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which means the Anointed). (John 1:42)  And he brought him to יהושע. And looking at him, יהושע said, “You are Shimʽon the son of Yonah, you shall be called Kĕpha” (which means A Stone). (John 1:43)  On the following day יהושע wished to go to Galil, and He found Philip and said to him, “Follow Me.” (John 1:44)  And Philip was from Bĕyth Tsaiḏa, the city of Andri and Kĕpha. (John 1:45)  Philip found Nethanĕ’l and said to him, “We have found Him whom Mosheh wrote of in the Torah, and the prophets: יהושע of Natsareth – the son of Yosĕph.” (John 1:46)  And Nethanĕ’l said to him, “Is it possible for any good matter to come out of Natsareth?” Philip said to him, “Come and see.” (John 1:47) יהושע saw Nethanĕ’l coming toward Him, and said of him, “See, truly a Yisra’ĕlite, in whom is no deceit!” (John 1:4)  Nethanĕ’l said to Him, “From where do you know me?” יהושע answered and said to him, “Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.” (John 1:49)  Nethanĕ’l answered and said to Him, “Rabbi, You are the Son of Elohim! You are the Sovereign of Yisra’ĕl!” (John 1:50) יהושע answered and said to him, “Because I said to you, ‘I saw you under the fig tree,’ do you believe? Greater than that you shall see.” (John 1:51)  And He said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, from now on you shall see the heaven opened, and the messengers of Elohim ascending and descending upon the Son of Aḏam.”

Loved One, here is my prayer and decree over you to rid you forever of fear! We start today! We lose ourselves in His wonderful and merciful love! We download His compassion, mercy and love for mankind that we may rightly represent Him? His love is not the natural love of this earth that determines to love as long as we are being loved back- His love is UNCONDITIONAL. His blessings are extremely conditional. Our love will fail- His kind of love will never fail. We download His love as we worship Him in Spirit and Truth! As He is lifted up, He will use us as a light in this darkening world and draw all mankind to Himself. Obviously, we choose to change into His image and die to our old nature so we may be used of Him. We worship Him who created all things! We understand Loved One; that worship takes diligence, practice, and a pure heart. We forgive others quickly that we are forgiven. We lift our hands in surrender without wrath against any and without doubt, we trust Him by thanking Him as the old hymn speaks- “Count your blessings count them one by one, count your many blessings, see what YHWH’s done- count your blessings…WE GIVE HIM THANKS!  (Psalms 100:1)  Raise a shout for יהוה, all the earth! (Psalms 100:2)  Serve יהוה with gladness; Come before His presence with singing. (Psalms 100:3)  Know that יהוה, He is Elohim; He has made us, and we are His – His people and the sheep of His pasture. (Psalms 100:4)  Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him; bless His Name. (Psalms 100:5)  For יהוה is good; His kindness (mercy) is everlasting, And His truth, to all generations. You see, worship is not about us in this relationship, it is all about Him as He alone provides what we seek- Peace, Love, Mercy, Direction, Provision, Protection, the list is indeed ENDLESS because He is I AM! (Not I was or will be) Since He inhabits the praise of His people, fear cannot stay on us!  Please join me as we take our eyes off of our problems and place them directly on our MIGHTY ELOHIM!

THANK YOU for your prayers and intercession and decree for Billie and me! I cannot tell you enough how important and what a lifeline they are. Please continue to intercede for us as this prayer will allow our prayers for you to be heard on high! I pray you have an ear to hear and the courage and provision to obey! Take your eyes off of what is seen and place them on what is unseen, for what is seen is temporary, and what is unseen (YAH’s Promises) is eternal- (Mat 24:33)  So likewise you, when you shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. (Mat 24:34)  Verily I say unto you, this generation shall not pass, till all these things are fulfilled. (Mat 24:35)  Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

REMEMBER WE OF YHWH FEAR NOT! (Neither do we stick our heads in the sand- but we remain sober and alert- not fooled by hasatan’s schemes!) Praise Him who made Heaven and Earth! Hallelu-YAH! You guys brought immediate deliverance from heaven for me this week! THANK YOU! You are the greatest brothers and sisters on the planet! Hallelu-YAH!

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.
