Shabbat Shalom Loved One!
www.shabbatshalomlovedone.blogspot.com Torah Studies w/ translations Mighty is YHWH whose mercy endures forever as He restores all things!
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…

Loved One, (Family of Truth searchers who are after the Father’s heart- to do His will!) over the last few days, I have questioned our Heavenly Father about what He desired to impress upon us during this weeks’ study.  As we start by reading a Chapter of Joel we can understand that the term “in those days and at that time” is a Hebrew idiom for the Day of the Lord. I suspect most of us are aware of the earth changes and the feel of something just, well…different. Let’s read and get some background for the forthcoming events which- will leave you and I (hopefully) with questions and decisions to make for ourselves. Three or four years ago the Holy Spirit gave me a song and tune which my dear friend and worship leader; Allan in Costa Rica, wrote the notes to. It’s becoming evident to me- Your wind is blowing even righteous trees; wood, hay, and stubble burned in fire- and all that’s left is ashes, and a burning desire! To worship YHWH (Yahweh), worship you YHWH (Yahweh) at your throne”…. These words reflect what is happening to those who “sell out” to His use. Know and understand that our country (USA) and this nephillim led administration especially are determined to bring “Peace” to the Middle East by dividing YHWH’s covenant land.
Let’s look together at what the Creator says about those countries that do this. It seems the whole world is studying the Roman Antonian Fortress (Temple Mount and wailing wall) with the Pope expecting to rule from some sort of Judgment Seat or throne set up there. We should know our Scriptures well enough to know that when Yahshua said NOT ONE STONE will be left…He knew what He was talking about! It seems possible what many or so worried about may be part of the wicked one’s deception and plan. Remember with me that Daniel foretold that when we see this abomination that makes desolate set up in the place where it should not be---FLEE TO THE MOUNTAINS…. Can we agree that we must develop an intimate relationship now that we may hear our Master clearly as to what and when we take action?
Joel 3:1  “For look, in those days and at that time, (Uhhhh---ummm- this time soon?) when I turn back the captivity of Yehuḏah and Yerushalayim, Joel 3:2 then I shall gather all gentiles, and bring them down to the Valley of Yehoshaphat. And I shall enter into judgment with them there for my people, my inheritance Yisra’ĕl, whom they have scattered among the gentiles, and they have divided (PARTED) up my land. Joel 3:3 “And they have cast lots for my people, and have given a young man for a whore, and sold a girl for wine, and drank it. Joel 3:4 “And also, what are you to me, O Tsor and Tsiḏon, and all the coasts of Philistia? Are you repaying me? And if you are repaying me, I would swiftly and speedily return your reward on your own head. Joel 3:5  “For you have taken my silver and my gold, and brought my treasures into your temples, Joel 3:6 and the people of Yehuḏah and the people of Yerushalayim you have sold to the sons of Yawan, to remove them far from their borders. Joel 3:7 “See, I am stirring them up out of the place to which you have sold them, and I shall return on your own head what you have done, Joel 3:8 and shall sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the people of Yehuḏah, and they shall sell them to the Sheḇaites, to a nation far off. For יהוה has spoken.” Joel 3:9 Proclaim this among the gentiles, “Prepare for battle! Wake up the mighty men, let all the men of battle draw near, let them come up. Joel 3:10 “Beat your ploughshares into swords and your pruning-hooks into spears, let the weak say, ‘I am strong.’ ” Joel 3:11 Hasten and come all you gentiles, and gather together all around. O יהוה let your mighty men come down here. Joel 3:12 “Let the gentiles be aroused, and come up to the Valley of Yehoshaphat. For there I shall sit to judge all the gentiles on every side.  Joel 3:13Put in the sickle, for the harvest has grown ripe. Come, go down, for the winepress is filled, the vats overflow, for their evil is great.”
I think we can gather that a great harvest is coming and we are all faced with some serious questions and the decisions we make will allow YHWH to use us mightily or divide us from those He will be allowed to use. Will we run to YHWH (Yahweh) while seemingly abandoning all who refuse to trust and obey Him, receive all His gifts and equipping He wants to give us to allow us to be witnesses wherever we go for s long as He desires and has created us for?  Are we “abandoning” those that refuse to come out of the Babylon whore culture and seek Him with all their ability? Here’s what I was shown regarding that; everyone who really loves Him will obey Him from a heart of honor and love- He considers them His treasure: Segulah; which is treasure so important He never lets out of His hand or sight! H5459 סגלּה segûllâh seg-ool-law' Feminine passive participle of an unused root meaning to shut up; wealth (as closely shut up): - jewel, peculiar (treasure), proper good, special.
Exodus 19:5  ‘And now, if you diligently obey my voice, and shall guard my covenant, then you shall be my treasured possession above all the peoples – for all the earth is mine – Exodus 19:6  ‘and you shall be to me a reign of priests and a set-apart nation.’ Those are the words which you are to speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl.”
In my prayer and meditation (Selah) time, I have come to understand we are not to follow anything that has added or taken away from His word and instructions! This is very dangerous because the devil is deceiving many right now. When Yahshua came the first time He broke every Takanot (Judaism man made laws- which were added to what Moses was given) and usually broke them with miracles. It is not okay to follow manmade nonsense- especially since most of it agrees with the synagogue of satan. The same goes for all the celebrations and feasts that replaced His feasts in churchianity. Most are straight from satan also, we actually subtracted His feasts which are the shadow picture and prophetic picture of what is to come. We get to choose Loved One, but be certain without repentance we will earn hell’s fires. DO NOT FOLLOW ANY MAN MADE ADDITTIONS! Ask the Father for yourself to reveal truth and remove all wood, hay and stubble BEFORE we must stand in His presence—because we will each stand there alone and naked before His eyes! If we deny Him before men- He will deny us before the Father---be very careful about what we believe and do. It will do us good to relook at Deuteronomy 4:2.  Judaism has continued to add much- claiming they sit in the Seat of Moses- they are very wrong—Yahshua alone is the High Priest---the Melchizedek! Constantine was a sun god worshipper and he and his followers (popes today) say they sit in His seat and rule as the Vicar of Christ on the earth—so they have the right to change whatever they choose to and we must follow them. NONSENSE—follow our Messiah- His TEN COMMANDMENTS- Keep the Shabbat and His Feasts. Remember the first four Commandments are how YHWH wants to be loved and the last six Commandments are how He expects us to love others- (Our neighbor as ourselves) ALL the Torah and the Prophets hang on these two commands! Our King is the Melchizedek Priest forever- the righteous judge. Faith/belief works by love, and He will ask each of us when we stand in front of Him- “DID YOU LEARN TO LOVE YAHWEH?” Next He will ask us, “DID YOU LEARN TO LOVE OTHERS AS YOURSELF?”
So loved one, we are all left with the decision- will we become His treasure at the risk of losing forsaking all others? There’s what He told me to teach on- DECISIONS He will give the verdict and outcome concerning our lives and purpose for being born for such a time as this.
Joel 3:14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of יהוה is near in the valley of decision.  Joel 3:15 Sun and moon shall become dark, and stars shall withdraw their brightness.  Joel 3:16 and יהוה shall roar from Tsiyon, and give forth His voice from Yerushalayim. And the heavens and earth shall shake, but יהוה shall be a refuge for His people, and a stronghold for the children of Yisra’ĕl.  Joel 3:17 “Then you shall know that I am יהוה your Elohim, dwelling in Tsiyon, My set-apart mountain1. And Yerushalayim shall be set-apart, and foreigners shall not pass through her again. Footnote: 1 See v. 21 and Isaiah 24:23.  Joel 3:18 “And it shall be in that day that the mountains drip with new wine, and the hills flow with milk. And all the streams of Yehuḏah shall be flooded with water, and a fountain flow from the House of יהוה and water the wadi Shittim.  Joel 3:19 “Mitsrayim shall become a ruin, and Eḏom a ruin, a wilderness, because of violence done to the people of Yehuḏah, whose innocent blood they shed in their land.  Joel 3:20 “Yehuḏah shall dwell forever, and Yerushalayim to all generations.  Joel 3:21 “And I shall avenge their blood, which I have not avenged. And יהוה shall be dwelling in Tsiyon!”  
Can we make an eternal decision loved one? Can we ask Him to use us and change us- forsaking all others as we become His bride, without spot or blemish, a bride that is willing to make herself ready? Our answer will change our lives and “Seal us” as we become the virgins (Born again ones) who receive His power (oil for our lamps) to become of those that are usable and ready for the coming BRIDEGROOM! There is no reconciliation/restoration without repentance loved one. Will we be of those who fulfill their destiny- that purpose for which we were created?
Here are this week’s Torah Scriptures:  Yithro Jethro
Exodus 18:1-20:23; Isaiah 6:1-7: Isaiah 9:5-6; Matthew 5:17-32
(Exodus 18:1)  And Yithro, the priest of Miḏyan, Mosheh’s father-in-law, heard of all that Elohim had done for Mosheh and for Yisra’ĕl His people, that יהוה had brought Yisra’ĕl out of Mitsrayim (Egypt- misery root word). (Exodus 18:2)  And Yithro, Mosheh’s father-in-law, took Tsipporah, the wife of Mosheh – after he had sent her back, (Exodus 18:3) and her two sons, of whom the name of one was Gĕreshom, for he said, “I have been a sojourner in a foreign land,” (Exodus 18:4) and the name of the other was Eliʽezer, for he said, “The Elohim of my father was my help, and delivered me from the sword of Pharaoh.” (Exodus 18:5)  Yithro, Mosheh’s father-in-law, came with his sons and his wife to Mosheh in the wilderness, where he was encamped at the mountain of Elohim. (Exodus 18:6)  And he had said to Mosheh, “I, your father-in-law Yithro, am coming to you with your wife and her two sons with her.” (Exodus 18:7)  And Mosheh went out to meet his father-in-law, and bowed down, and kissed him. And they asked each other about their welfare, and they went into the tent. (Exodus 18:8)  And Mosheh told his father-in-law all that יהוה had done to Pharaoh and to the Mitsrites for Yisra’ĕl’s sake, all the hardship that had come upon them on the way, and how יהוה had delivered them. (Exodus 18:9)  And Yithro rejoiced for all the good which יהוה had done for Yisra’ĕl, whom He had delivered out of the hand of the Mitsrites. (Exodus 18:10)  And Yithro said, “Blessed be יהוה, who has delivered you out of the hand of the Mitsrites and out of the hand of Pharaoh, and who has delivered the people from under the hand of the Mitsrites. (Exodus 18:11)  “Now I know that יהוה is greater than all the mighty ones, indeed in the matter in which they acted proudly, above them.” (Exodus 18:12)  Then Yithro, the father-in-law of Mosheh, brought a burnt offering and other slaughterings unto Elohim. And Aharon came with all the elders of Yisra’ĕl to eat bread with the father-in-law of Mosheh before Elohim. (Exodus 18:13)  And it came to be, on the next day, that Mosheh sat to rightly rule the people. And the people stood before Mosheh from morning until evening. (Exodus 18:14)  And when the father-in-law of Mosheh saw all that he did for the people, he said, “What is this that you are doing for the people? Why do you sit by yourself, and all the people stand before you from morning until evening?” (Exodus 18:15)  And Mosheh said to his father-in-law, “Because the people come to me to seek Elohim. (Exodus 18:16)  “When they have a matter, they come to me, and I rightly rule between one and another, and make known the laws of Elohim and His Torot.” (Exodus 18:17)  And the father-in-law of Mosheh said to him, “What you are doing is not good. (Exodus 18:18)  “Both you and these people with you shall certainly wear yourselves out. For the matter is too heavy for you. You are not able to do it by yourself. (Exodus 18:19)  “Now listen to my voice. Let me counsel you and Elohim be with you: Stand before Elohim for the people and you shall bring the matters to Elohim. (Exodus 18:20)  “And you shall enlighten them concerning the laws and the Torot, and show them the way in which they should walk and the work which they do. (Exodus 18:21)  “But you yourself seek out from all the people able men, who fear Elohim, men of truth, hating unfair gain. And place these over them to be rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens. (Exodus 18:22)  “And they shall rightly rule the people at all times. And it shall be that they bring every great matter to you, but they themselves rightly rule every small matter. So, make it lighter for yourself, for they shall bear with you. (Exodus 18:23)  “If you do this word, and Elohim shall command you, then you shall be able to stand and this entire people also go to their place in peace.” (Exodus 18:24)  And Mosheh listened to the voice of his father-in-law and did all that he said. (Exodus 18:25)  And Mosheh chose able men out of all Yisra’ĕl, and made them heads over the people: rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens. (Exodus 18:26)  And they rightly ruled the people at all times – the hard matters they brought to Mosheh, but they rightly ruled every small matter themselves. (Exodus 18:27)  And Mosheh sent off his father-in-law, and he went away to his own land.
Becoming His TREASURE!
(Exodus 19:1)  In the third month after the children of Yisra’ĕl had come out of the land of Mitsrayim, on this day they came to the Wilderness of Sinai. (Exodus 19:2)  They set out from Rephiḏim, and had come to the Wilderness of Sinai, and camped in the wilderness. So Yisra’ĕl camped there before the mountain. (Exodus 19:3)  And Mosheh went up to Elohim, and יהוה called to him from the mountain, saying, “This is what you are to say to the house of Yaʽaqoḇ, and declare to the children of Yisra’ĕl: (Exodus 19:4)  ‘You have seen what I did to the Mitsrites, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings and brought you to Myself. (Exodus 19:5)  ‘And now, if you diligently obey My voice, and shall guard My covenant, then you shall be My treasured possession above all the peoples – for all the earth is Mine(Exodus 19:6) ‘and you shall be to Me a reign of priests and a set-apart nation.’ Those are the words which you are to speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl.” (Exodus 19:7)  And Mosheh came and called for the elders of the people, and set before them all these words which יהוה commanded him. (Exodus 19:8)  And all the people answered together and said, “All that יהוה has spoken we shall do.” So Mosheh brought back the words of the people to יהוה. (Exodus 19:9)  And יהוה said to Mosheh, “See, I am coming to you in the thick cloud, so that the people hear when I speak with you, and believe you forever.” And Mosheh reported the words of the people to יהוה. (Exodus 19:10)  And יהוה said to Mosheh, “Go to the people and set them apart today and tomorrow. And they shall wash their garments, (Exodus 19:11) and shall be prepared by the third day. For on the third day יהוה shall come down upon Mount Sinai before the eyes of all the people. (Exodus 19:12)  “And you shall make a border for the people all around, saying, ‘Take heed to yourselves that you do not go up to the mountain or touch the border of it. Whoever touches the mountain shall certainly be put to death. (Exodus 19:13)  ‘Not a hand is to touch it, but he shall certainly be stoned or shot with an arrow, whether man or beast, he shall not live.’ When the trumpet sounds long, let them come near the mountain.” (Exodus 19:14)  And Mosheh came down from the mountain to the people and set the people apart, and they washed their garments. (Exodus 19:15)  And he said to the people, “Be prepared by the third day. Do not come near a wife.” (Exodus 19:16)  And it came to be, on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud on the mountain. And the sound of the ram’s horn was very loud, and all the people who were in the camp trembled. (Exodus 19:17)  And Mosheh brought the people out of the camp to meet with Elohim, and they stood at the foot of the mountain. (Exodus 19:18)  And Mount Sinai was in smoke, all of it, because יהוה descended upon it in fire. And its smoke went up like the smoke of a furnace, and all the mountain trembled exceedingly. (Exodus 19:19)  And when the blast of the ram’s horn sounded long and became louder and louder, Mosheh spoke, and Elohim answered him by voice. (Exodus 19:20)  And יהוה came down upon Mount Sinai, on the top of the mountain. And יהוה called Mosheh to the top of the mountain, and Mosheh went up. (Exodus 19:21)  And יהוה said to Mosheh, “Go down, and warn the people, lest they break through unto יהוה to see, and many of them fall. (Exodus 19:22)  “And let the priests who come near יהוה set themselves apart too, lest יהוה break out against them.” (Exodus 19:23)  And Mosheh said to יהוה, “The people are not able to come up to Mount Sinai, for you warned us, saying, ‘Make a border around the mountain and set it apart.’ ” (Exodus 19:24) And יהוה said to him, “Come, go down and then come up, you and Aharon with you. But do not let the priests and the people break through to come up to יהוה, lest He break out against them.” (Exodus 19:25)  And Mosheh went down to the people and spoke to them.
His commands are no longer burdensome because He gave us His Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) on the anniversary of the giving of the Torah (Instructions/Law) which was Shavuot or called Pentecost by many. Will we obey them from a heart of love as Yahshua (Jesus) who was in the beginning (Genesis and of course Mt Sinai) with YHVH and was YHVH and stated how He determines if we love Him or not? (John 14:15)  “If you love me, you shall guard my commands.1 Footnote: 1See Ex. 20:6, vv. 21&23, 1 John 5:2-3, 2 John v. 6. (John 14:16)  “And I shall ask the Father, and He shall give you another Helper, to stay with you forever – (John 14:17) the Spirit of the Truth, whom the world is unable to receive, because it does not see Him or know Him. But you know Him, for He stays with you and shall be in you. (John 14:18)  “I shall not leave you orphans – I am coming to you. (Jon 14:19)  Yet a little while, and the world no longer sees me, but you shall see me, because I live, and you shall live. (John 14:20)  In that day you shall know that I am in My Father and you in me, and I in you. (John 14:21)  “He who (1) possesses my commands and (2) 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 two requirements to proof of love: Having His commands and Keeping/obeying them. This should remind us quickly of She’mah ‘O Israel (Hear/Listen- and DO!)
 Hey- here’s some really good news loved one- none of us are yet perfected and matured, we are all in the process of OVERCOMING! We make a decision to l.ive for our coming King today!
(Rev 2:16)  “Repent, or else I shall come to you speedily and fight against them with the sword of my mouth. (Rev 2:17)  “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. To him who overcomes I shall give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I shall give him a white stone, and on the stone a renewed Name written which no one knows except him who receives it.” ’
(Rev 2:26)  “And he who overcomes, and guards My works until the end, to him I shall give authority over the nations, (Rev 2:27) and he shall shepherd them with a rod of iron, as the potter’s vessels shall be broken to pieces,1 as I also have received from My Father. Footnote: 1Ps. 2:9. (Rev 2:28)  “And I shall give him the morning star. (Rev 2:29)  “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.” ’
(Rev 3:5)  “He who overcomes shall be dressed in white robes, and I shall by no means blot out his name from the Book of Life, but I shall confess his name before My Father and before His messengers. (Rev 3:6)  “He who has an ear let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.” ’
(Rev 3:12)  “He who overcomes, I shall make him a supporting post in the Dwelling Place of My Elohim, and he shall by no means go out. And I shall write on him the Name of My Elohim and the name of the city of My Elohim, the renewed Yerushalayim, which comes down out of the heaven from My Elohim, and My renewed Name. (Rev 3:13)  “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.” ’
(Rev 3:20)  “See, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I shall come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. (Rev 3:21) “To him who overcomes I shall give to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. (Rev 3:22)  “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.” ’ ”
(Rev 21:5)  And He who was sitting on the throne said, “See, I make all matters new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and trustworthy.” (Rev 21:6)  And He said to me, “It is done! I am the ‘Aleph’ and the ‘Taw’, the Beginning and the End. To the one who thirsts I shall give of the fountain of the water of life without payment. (Rev 21:7)  “The one who overcomes shall inherit all this, and I shall be his Elohim and he shall be My son. (Rev 21:8)  “But as for the cowardly (fearful), and untrustworthy, and abominable, and murderers, and those who whore, and drug sorcerers, and idolaters, and all the false, their part is in the lake which burns with fire and sulphur, which is the second death.”
Overcoming = obedience from a heart of love for our Messiah- who is, and was and is to come- our BRIDEGROOM! Will we be made worthy to escape all these things that are coming on the earth to TEST to see who the Bride of Messiah is? (Not a pre-trib rapture as we will be used to produce fruit that remains are we are of no value to our coming King who will set up a Kingdom based on His constitution and bylaws- HIS TORAH- Moses and the Prophets!
Hey they really are not burdensome- we are empowered to DO not hear only. (Jas 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: 1 See Matthew 13:4-23. (Jas 1:22)  And become doers of the Word, and not hearers only1 deceiving yourselves. Footnote: 1 See Matthew 7:24-27, Luke. 6:46-49, Luke. 8:21, Rom. 2:13, Heb. 4:11, Rev. 22:14. (Jas 1:23)  Because 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, (Jas 1:24) for he looks at himself, and goes away, and immediately forgets what he was like. (Jas 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. (Jas 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. (Jas 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 from the world.
Are His Commandments Burdensome? No- because Messiah paid for us to receive His Spirit that they are written on our hearts and we can choose to be obedient- just like Him!
(Exodus 20:1)  And Elohim spoke all these Words, saying, (Exodus 20:2) “I am יהוה your Elohim, who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, out of the house of slavery. (Exodus 20:3) (1) “You have no other mighty ones against my face. (Exodus 20:4) (2) “You do not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of that which is in the heavens above, or which is in the earth beneath, or which is in the waters under the earth, (Exodus 20:5) you do not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, יהוה your Elohim am a jealous Ěl, visiting the crookedness of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate me, (Exodus 20:6) but showing kindness to thousands, to those who love me and guard my commands. (Exodus 20:7) (3)  “You do not bring1 the Name of יהוה your Elohim to naught, for יהוה does not leave the one unpunished who brings His Name to naught. Footnote: 1Or lift up, or take. (Exodus 20:8) (4)  “Remember the Sabbath day, to set it apart. (Exodus 20:9)   “Six days you labor, and shall do all your work, (Exodus 20:10) but the seventh day is a Sabbath1 of יהוה your Elohim. You do not do any work – you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. Footnote: 1There are other Sabbaths, but this is the weekly Sabbath. (Exodus 20:11)  “For in six days יהוה made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore יהוה blessed the Sabbath day and set it apart. (Exodus 20:12) (5) “Respect your father and your mother, so that your days are prolonged upon the soil which יהוה your Elohim is giving you. (Exodus 20:13) (6)  “You do not murder. (Exodus 20:14) (7) “You do not commit adultery. (Exodus 20:15)  (8) “You do not steal. (Exodus 20:16) (9)  You do not bear false witness against your neighbor. (Exodus 20:17) (10) “You do not covet your neighbor’s house; you do not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, or whatever belongs to your neighbor.” (Exodus 20:18)  And all the people saw the thunders, the lightning flashes, the sound of the ram’s horn, and the mountain smoking. And the people saw it, and they trembled and stood at a distance, (Exodus 20:19) and said to Mosheh, “You speak with us and we hear, but let not Elohim speak with us, lest we die.” (Exodus 20:20)  And Mosheh said to the people, “Do not fear, for Elohim has come to prove you, and in order that His fear be before you, so that you do not sin.” (Exodus 20:21)  So the people stood at a distance, but Mosheh drew near the thick darkness where Elohim was. (Exodus 20:22)  And יהוה said to Mosheh, “Say this to the children of Yisra’ĕl: ‘You yourselves have seen that I have spoken to you from the heavens. (Exodus 20:23)  ‘You do not make besides Me mighty ones of silver, and you do not make mighty ones of gold for yourselves.
Unclean lips must be brought into the Refiner’s fire! What we SAY is of vast import! (Mar 11:23)  “For truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says, shall be done, he shall have whatever he says. (Mar 11:24)  “Because of this I say to you, whatever you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you shall have them. (Mar 11:25)  “And whenever you stand praying, if you hold whatever against anyone, forgive, so that your Father in the heavens shall also forgive you your trespasses.
(Isa 6:1)  In the year that Sovereign Uzziyahu died, I saw יהוה sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the Hĕḵal. (Isa 6:2)  Above it stood seraphim. Each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. (Isa 6:3)  And one cried to another and said, “Set-apart (Holy), set-apart (Holy), set-apart (Holy) is יהוה of hosts; all the earth is filled with His esteem!” (Isa 6:4)  And the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out, and the house was filled with smoke. (Isa 6:5)  And I said, “Woe to me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips (Speech), and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips – for my eyes have seen the Sovereign יהוה of hosts.” (Isa 6:6)  And one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar. (Isa 6:7)  And he touched my mouth with it, and said, “See, this has touched your lips; your crookedness is taken away, and your sin is covered.” (Isa 6:8)  And I heard the voice of יהוה, saying, “Whom do I send, and who would go for us?” And I said, “Here am I! Send me.” (Isa 6:9)  And He said, “Go, and you shall say to this people, ‘Hearing, you hear, but do not understand; and seeing, you see, but do not know.’ (Isa 6:10)  “Make the heart of this people fat, and their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and shall turn and be healed.” (Isa 6:11)  Then I said, “יהוה, until when?” And He answered, “Until the cities are laid waste and without inhabitant, and the houses are without a man, and the land is laid waste, a ruin, (Isa 6:12)  and יהוה has removed men far away, and the forsaken places be many in the midst of the land.(Isa 6:13)  “But still, there is a tenth part in it, and it shall again be for a burning, like a terebinth tree and like an oak, whose stump remains when it is cut down. The set-apart seed is its stump!” Isa 9:5 for every boot of one trampling in tumult, and coat rolled in blood shall be used for burning and fuel of fire.  Isa 9:6 For a Child shall be born unto us, a Son shall be given unto us, and the rule is on His shoulder. And His Name is called Wonder, Counselor, Strong Ěl, Father of Continuity, Prince of Peace.
Under the Torah (letter of Torah) we have to be caught in the transgression by two or more witnesses- under the spirit of Torah (Better covenant) we can think evil and be counted a transgressor- read carefully below- no wonder He warns us to take every THOUGHT CAPTIVE to the obedience of Messiah Yahshua (Jesus)!
Mat 5:17 Do not think that I came to destroy the Torah or the Prophets.1 I did not come to destroy but to complete. Footnote: 1The Law and the Prophets is a term used for the pre-Messianic Scriptures. Mat 5:18  “For truly, I say to you, till the heaven and the earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall by no means pass from the Torah till all be done.1 Footnote: 1Lk. 16:17.  Mat 5:19 “Whoever, then, breaks one of the least of these commands, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the reign of the heavens; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the reign of the heavens. (Comment: Too many Pastor LEAST’S teaching that Moses and the Prophet’s – LAW- is done away with) Mat 5:20 “For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, 1 you shall by no means enter into the reign of the heavens. Footnote: 1 Matthew 15:3-9, Mark 7:7-13, John 7:19, Acts 7:53, Romans 2:23-27, Gal. 6:13. Mat 5:21 “You heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder,’ and whoever murders shall be liable to judgment. Mat 5:22But I say to you that whoever is wroth with his brother without a cause shall be liable to judgment. And whoever says to his brother, ‘Raka!’ shall be liable to the Sanhedrin. But whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be liable to fire of Gehenna. Mat 5:23 “If, then, you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother holds whatever against you, Mat 5:24 leave your gift there before the altar, and go, first make peace with your brother, and then come and offer your gift. Mat 5:25 Be well-minded with your opponent, promptly, while you are on the way with him, lest your opponent deliver you to the judge, and the judge to the officer, and you be thrown into prison. Mat 5:26 “Truly, I say to you, you shall by no means get out of there till you have paid the last penny. Mat 5:27 “You heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ Mat 5:28 “But I say to you that everyone looking at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. Mat 5:29 “And if your right eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out and throw it away from you. It is better for you that one of your members perishes, than for your entire body to be thrown into Gehenna. Mat 5:30 “And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away from you. It is better for you that one of your members perishes, than for your entire body to be thrown into Gehenna. Mat 5:31 “And it has been said, ‘Whoever puts away his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.’ Mat 5:32  “But I say to you that whoever puts away his wife, except for the matter of whoring, 1 makes her commit adultery. And whoever marries a woman who has been put away commits adultery. Footnote: 1Mt. 19:9, Dt. 24:1.

Continued explanation of 2014-15 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
