Shabbat Shalom Loved One!    This study is attached for printing and at the website below and click here for the INIQUITIES study for your personal removal of generational traps set by hasatan against you and your blood lineage. Again, some have asked 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 and my answer is repeated at the end of this study!

LOVED ONE, this past few weeks we have looked at not only our iniquities for those of us who really want removal of the legal but perhaps unknown demonic traps, schemes, and plans against each of us and our family blood lines due to INIQUITIES; but also how to rid ourselves of all UNBELIEF—because frankly loved one, if we will rid ourselves of unbelief and iniquities- ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE FOR US WHO WILL BELIEVE!

Since I want to add to last week’s study on prayer and fasting with some learned practices and insights from prayer and fasting; that as a reminder can help each of us overcome some awkward mistakes that make fasting and prayer much harder, we will start with reviewing our need for fasting and prayer. Then we will talk briefly, as an introduction, about REPENTANCE- which Yahshua promised must happen before He returns—perhaps or likely, there are some traps set in this area of our walks that we are blinded to.

We will quickly re read these scriptures for planting this understanding in us, but then we will look at how we are often defeated in our fasting and prayer by common mistakes and misunderstandings in our DOING.

Once we really understand prayer and fasting rids us of our unbelief—no matter what the facts are; we will fast and pray—because ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE TO THE ONE THAT BELIEVES!

Remember the setting, fame has gone out all over the land of Israel because Yahshua has sent the 12 out (Then the 70) and told them to go cast out devils, raise the dead, heal the sick, freely they have received- freely go give! So they have had marvelous accomplishments casting out devils. Not only that but then Yahshua takes Kĕpha (Peter, James and John and they witness His transfiguration with Moses and Elijah) and they are walking back from that event when Yahshua witnesses the other disciples trying to cast out a devil from a man’s son. Here’s their report of having authority (Just like we do) over demons:

Luke 10:17 and the seventy returned with joy, saying, “Master, even the demons are subject to us in Your Name.” 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,  (Demonic realm) 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.”
Now let’s look closer at the chronology of events… I have highlighted belief and unbelief for us to easily see- THAT ALONE IS THE TOPIC! (Not some mighty demon)

Matthew 17:1  And after six days יהושע took Kĕpha, and Yaʽaqoḇ, and Yoḥanan his brother, and brought them up on a high mountain by themselves, Matthew 17:2  and He was transformed before them, and His face shone like the sun, and His garments became as white as the light. Matthew 17:3 and see, Mosheh and Ěliyahu appeared to them, talking with Him. Matthew 17:4 Matthew and Kĕpha answering, said to יהושע, “Master, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, let us make here three booths: one for you, one for Mosheh, and one for Ěliyahu.” 1 Footnote: 1 Mark 9:4. Matthew 17:5 while he was still speaking, see, and a bright cloud overshadowed them. And see, a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is My Son, the Beloved, in whom I did delight. Hear Him!Matthew 17:6 and when the taught ones heard, they fell on their faces and were much afraid. Matthew 17:7 But יהושע came near and touched them and said, “Rise, and do not be afraid.” Matthew 17:8 and having lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but יהושע only. Matthew 17:9 and as they were coming down from the mountain, יהושע commanded them, saying, “Do not mention the vision to anyone until the Son of Aḏam is raised from the dead.” Matthew 17:10 And His taught ones asked Him, saying, “Why then do the scribes say that Ěliyahu has to come first?” Matthew 17:11 and יהושע answering, said to them, “Ěliyahu is indeed coming first, and shall restore all matters.1 Footnote: 1 See Mark 9:12 and Acts 3:21. Matthew 17:12 “But I say to you that Ěliyahu has already come, and they did not recognize him but did to him whatever they wished. In this way the Son of Aḏam is also about to suffer by them.” Matthew 17:13 Then the taught ones understood that He had spoken to them about Yoḥanan the Immerser. Matthew 17:14  And when they came to the crowd, a man came up to Him, kneeling down to Him and saying, Matthew 17:15  “Master, have compassion on my son, for he is an epileptic and suffers badly, for he often falls into the fire and often into the water. Matthew 17:16 “And I brought him to your taught ones, but they were unable to heal him.”

Here we see Yahshua angry because of their UNBELIEF
Matthew 17:17 and יהושע answering, said, “O generation, unbelieving and perverted, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring him here to me.” Matthew 17:18 and יהושע rebuked the demon, and he came out of him. And the child was healed from that hour. Matthew 17:19 Then the taught ones came to יהושע by Himself and said, “Why were we unable to cast him out?” Matthew 17:20 and יהושע said to them, “Because of your unbelief, for truly, I say to you, if you have belief as a mustard seed, you shall say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it shall move. And no matter shall be impossible for you.  Matthew 17:21 “But this kind does not go out except through prayer and fasting.”

Let’s look again for more information from the same time frame in Mark’s Gospel
Mark 9:1  And He said to them, “Truly, I say to you that there are some standing here who shall not taste of death at all until they see the reign of Elohim having come in power:”1 Footnote: 1 vv. 2-7. Mark 9:2 and after six days יהושע took Kĕpha, and Yaʽaqoḇ, and Yoḥanan, and led them up on a high mountain alone by themselves. And He was transformed before them. Mark 9:3 and His garments became glittering, exceedingly white, like snow, such as no launderer on earth is able to whiten. Mark 9:4 and there appeared to them Ěliyahu with Mosheh, 1 and they were talking with יהושע. Footnote: 1 See Matthew 17:2-9, Luke 9:28-35, Luke 16:31, John. 5:47, Malachi 4:4-5. Mark 9:5 And Kĕpha responding, said to יהושע, “Rabbi, it is good for us to be here. And let us make three booths, one for you, and one for Mosheh, and one for Ěliyahu,” Mark 9:6  because he did not know what to say, for they were exceedingly afraid. Mark 9:7 and there came a cloud overshadowing them, and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is My Son, the Beloved. Hear Him!” Mark 9:8 and suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone with them, but only יהושע. Mark 9:9 and as they were coming down from the mountain, He ordered them not to relate to anyone what they saw, till the Son of Aḏam had risen from the dead. Mark 9:10 and they kept this matter to themselves, debating what the rising from the dead meant. Mark 9:11 And they asked Him, saying, “Why do the scribes say that Ěliyahu has to come first?” Mark 9:12 And He said to them, “Ěliyahu indeed, having come first, restores all matters 1. And how has it been written concerning the Son of Aḏam, that He is to suffer much and be despised? Footnote: 1 Matthew 17:11, Acts 3:21. Mark 9:13 “But I say to you that even Ěliyahu has come, and they did to him whatever they wished, as it has been written of him.” Mark 9:14 and coming to the taught ones, He saw a large crowd around them, and scribes disputing with them.
Let’s look again closely at the topic as Yahshua makes it plain to us.
Mark 9:15 and immediately, when the entire crowd saw Him, they were greatly astonished, and running near, greeted Him. Mark 9:16 And He asked the scribes, “What are you disputing with them?” Mark 9:17 And one of the crowd answering, said, “Teacher, I brought you my son, who has a dumb spirit. Mark 9:18 “And wherever he seizes him, he throws him down, and he foams at the mouth, and gnashes his teeth, and he wastes away. And I spoke to your taught ones that they should cast him out, but they were not able.” Mark 9:19 And He answered him and said, “O unbelieving generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring him to me.” Mark 9:20 so they brought him to Him. And when he saw Him, immediately the spirit threw him into convulsions. And falling on the ground, he rolled about, foaming at the mouth. Mark 9:21 And He asked his father, “How long has he been like this?” And he said, “From childhood, Mark 9:22 and often he has thrown him both into the fire and into the water to destroy him. But if it is at all possible for you, have compassion on us and help us.” Mark 9:23 and יהושע said to him, “If you are able to believe, all is possible to him who believes.” Mark 9:24 and immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “I believe Master, and help my unbelief!” Mark 9:25 and when יהושע saw that a crowd came running together, He rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to him, “You deaf and dumb spirit, I order you, come out of him, and never again enter into him!” Mark 9:26 and crying out, and convulsing him much, it came out of him. And he became as one dead, so that many said that he was dead. Mark 9:27 But יהושע, taking him by the hand, lifted him up, and he arose. Mark 9:28 and when He came into a house, His taught ones asked Him separately, “Why were we unable to cast him out?” Mark 9:29 And He said to them, “It is impossible for this kind (OF UNBELIEF) to come out except through prayer and fasting.”

LOVED ONES; what can we learn today from our victories and failures in prayer? Much in both instances it seems. Since we are family let’s have a heartfelt talk: sometimes we receive our “breakthrough” from sheer mercy of Yah; someone somewhere actually “believed”. Father has reminded me again that no prayer is EVER answered based on NEED. If they were answered based on how needy we are- frankly Loved One- there would be NO NEED on the planet Earth. Father told me many years ago that no man on Earth since His man Adam had ever starved to death that would worship Him unashamedly; although many had starved to death, they knew not how to worship and give thanks when they saw no provision. We should all remember a vital point- it requires believing or faith TO RECEIVE FROM HEAVEN- sometimes we just cannot say “THANK YOU” and believe it unless we SEE it first. Truthfully, if we can see it- that is Not Trust or Faith- that is REPORTING the facts. We are told no not walk by the facts- indeed He reminds us His righteous ones will walk by faith and goes on to remind us that without our believing (faith) we cannot possibly please YHWH! Remember our believing (faith) comes by hearing and hearing (At least apart from the gift of faith which is given for others only as the Ruach wills) Loved One, if we continually see and hear facts (the flesh/sight realm) then we will establish and guarantee our unbelief. It is important that we rid ourselves of unbelief by fasting and prayer as the scriptures reveal that effort to be the required method provided for removal of our unbelief. Remember the topic was never some big demon when Yahshua taught on belief and unbelief and He spoke- “This type only goes by fasting and prayer!” We need to remind ourselves that wrestling is the most “in your face warfare” there is- and our wrestle with hasatan is to the death and our weapons are not flesh but are mighty for victory. We only win when we are so assured of His victory for us in spite of the overwhelming facts and storms against us- when we violently take it by FORCE and enforce the Kingdom of Heaven here on earth. Yahshua guarantees that by speaking these words; (Matthew 11:12) “And from the days of Yoḥanan the Immerser till now the reign of the heavens is violated, and the violent seize it.1 Footnote: 1 See Luke\. 16:16-17 which explains it more clearly.
Here are some of the misunderstandings, practices and beliefs that hinder our ridding ourselves of UNBELIEF in our efforts with prayer and fasting! Remember first; fasting and prayer is for all believers. Not IF you fast- but WHEN you fast.
Matthew_6:16 “And when you fast, do not be sad-faced like the hypocrites. For they disfigure their faces so that they appear to be fasting to men. Truly, I say to you, they have their reward.
Matthew_6:17 “But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face,
Matthew_9:14 Then the taught ones of Yoḥanan came to Him, saying, “Why do we and the Pharisees fast often, but your taught ones do not fast?”
Matthew_9:15 and יהושע said to them, “Are the friends of the bridegroom able to mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? But the days shall come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they shall fast.
Mark_2:18 and the taught ones of Yoḥanan and of the Pharisees were fasting. and they came and said to Him, “Why do the taught ones of Yoḥanan and of the Pharisees fast, but your taught ones do not fast?”
Mark_2:19 and יהושע said to them, “Are the friends of the bridegroom able to fast while the bridegroom is with them? As long as they have the bridegroom with them they are not able to fast.
Mark_2:20 “But the days shall come when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then they shall fast in those days.
Luke_5:35 “But days shall come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, then they shall fast in those days.”
Seek the Father about when and how long you are to fast- and pray. Fasting alone will not produce the fruit you desire or rid yourself of UNBELIEF so that you have the victories you seek; it is fasting and prayer.
Once you determine with a peace in your heart what you have heard, accept His word to you and submit with agreement- then speak as you ask for His help to complete.  Make up your mind to be an overcomer.
It is wise to start and finish a shorter fast first and build on your success. Perhaps 1-3 days is a place to start. Remember that this act of submission and afflicting yourself puts your spirit man in position to direct—instead of your flesh directing. The spirit brings life and the flesh brings death, they are in war with one another for leadership of you.
Make sure you get your body in position to fast- don’t eat sweets, coffee, etc. for several days prior to starting a fast- eat greens, salads vegetables, water melon etc.; otherwise your body will struggle greater removing toxins and such—and you will have headaches for up to 3 days needlessly. Drink water- and if possible add lemon or lime juice to keep your PH level alkaline. NO sugar- as it produces an acidic ph in your body. Your body is the Temple of Yahweh—not your ruler. Don’t announce to everyone that you are fasting. You may have to tell those who may cook for you, but ask them to be discrete. You don’t want your reward stolen.
Matthew_6:16 “And when you fast, do not be sad-faced like the hypocrites. For they disfigure their faces so that they appear to be fasting to men. Truly, I say to you, they have their reward.
After you have finished a short fast with victory- give Him thanks and praise for seeing you to victory and for HIM achieving your prayer requests- whether you SEE IT yet or not, matters not. Fasting is a way of life, build on your fasts and determine to go on longer fasts for bigger victories- and EXPECT those victories. Even if you fail during your fast, don’t give up- repent and ask Father to help you and grow your will to overcome your flesh man. Don’t condemn yourself- we are willing and able and we can grow in our victory. Don’t beat yourself up- resolve to overcome- you are an overcomer- start again and again if necessary. Expect to be tempted while fasting, Yahshua was tested and tempted while on a 40 day fast- expect you will too. Everyone will offer you your favorite meals; just tell them you are not eating, but thanks. RESOLVE within to OVERCOME.
Now we will look briefly at our need to REPENT to ever become one who overcomes- the Bride without spot or blemish, as He changes NOT, and that leaves us to repent and change into His image. We are crucified in Him- we no longer rule- live, but He dwells in us- the life we live in the body, we live by faith and trust in HIM. Speak Galatians 2:20 over your life, you will find that He grows in you as you submit and allow yourself to become less and allow Him to become more.
TESHUVAH- (repent) we are now required to turn our stiff necks and follow Him and His instructions (Torah). Here’s what the Ruach demands I teach/remind us about today. Yah-Chanan- (John the Immerser spoken as Hebrew) means Yah’s Mercy- and what did he come preaching? REPENT- TESHUVAH as that is the only way to His mercy- Let’s look:
(Matthew 3:1)  And in those days Yoḥanan the Immerser came proclaiming in the wilderness of Yehuḏah, (Matthew 3:2) and saying, “Repent, for the reign of the heavens has come near!” (Matthew 3:3)  For this is he who was spoken of by the prophet Yeshayahu, saying, “A voice of one crying in the wilderness, ‘Prepare the way of יהוה, make His paths straight.’ ” 1 Footnote: 1 Isaiah 40:3. (Matthew 3:4) And Yoḥanan had a garment of camel’s hair, and a leather girdle around his waist. And his food was locusts and wild honey. (Matthew 3:5)  Then Yerushalayim, and all Yehuḏah, and all the country around the Yardĕn went out to him, (Matthew 3:6) and they were immersed by him in the Yardĕn, confessing their sins. (Matthew 3:7)  And seeing many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his immersion, he said to them, “Brood of adders! Who has warned you to flee from the coming wrath? (Matthew 3:8)  Bear, therefore, fruits worthy of repentance, (Matthew 3:9) and do not think to say to yourselves, ‘We have Aḇraham as father.’1 for I say to you that Elohim is able to rise up children to Aḇraham from these stones. Footnote: 1John 8:33-34, Romans. 9:8. (Matthew 3:10) “And the axe is already laid to the root of the trees. Every tree, then, which does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. (Matthew 3:11)  “I indeed immerse you in water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to bear. He shall immerse you in the Set-apart Spirit and fire. (Matthew 3:12)  “His winnowing fork is in His hand, and He shall thoroughly cleanse His threshing-floor, and gather His wheat into the storehouse, but the chaff He shall burn with unquenchable fire.”
Why is the Ruach warning us just now was my next question. Here’s His answer- “many will be surprised because they have not judged themselves and made themselves ready- many are still speaking against their brothers and sisters and pointing the finger at others’ faults but not really looking at themselves and making themselves ready”. Loved one, I think this applies to every one of us- as it is so easy to see others faults and think we’re okay… our fruit that we are commanded to bear cannot be self-exaltation at the expense of someone else’s character- so much la shan hara (Cursing others and/or blaming others for our shortcomings) these days and many bearing false witness and out right lying to make themselves appear righteous. Let’s take a closer look at ourselves before we must stand in His presence! Should we not cleanse ourselves now or at least ask our loving Father- Is there anything that will be burned up as wood, hay, and stubble when I am in your presence- that I considered gold, silver, and precious? ANYTHING I NEED TO REPENT OF? Let’s consider carefully and humble ourselves. It seems that when we think all is well and there is nothing to be repentant about; we may be deceived by the enemy of our souls.
(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 to His Instructions- receive the engrafted word) yourselves to Elohim. Resist the devil1 and he shall flee from you. Footnote: 1 Or 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? (James 4:13)  Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow, let us go to such and such a city, spend a year there, and trade, and make a profit,” (James 4:14)  when you do not know of tomorrow. For what is your life? For it is a vapor that appears for a little, and then disappears – (James 4:15) instead of your saying, “If the Master desires, we shall live and do this or that.” (James 4:16)  But now you boast in your proud speeches. All such boasting is wicked. (James 4:17)  To him, then, who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.
Remember loved one, we are the last day’s assembly of believers or His body, so it is quite probable that we have been deceived in certain areas of our lives. Here’s what He reminded me:
(Revelation 3:13)  “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.” ’ (Revelation 3:14) “And to the messenger of the assembly in Laodikeia write, ‘The Amĕn, the Trustworthy and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of Elohim, 1 says this: Footnote:  1 Colossians 1:15, Hebrews 1:6. (Revelation 3:15)  “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I would that you were cold or hot. (Revelation 3:16)  “So, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I am going to vomit you out of my mouth. (Revelation 3:17)  “Because you say, ‘Rich I am, and I am made rich, and need none at all,’ and do not know that you are wretched, and pitiable, and poor, and blind, and naked. (Revelation 3:18)  “I advise you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, 1 (Trust- belief- faith in spite of what is seen) so that you become rich; and white garments (Robes of Righteousness that come from DOING the Gospel and OBEDIENCE to His Instructions-Torah), so that you become dressed, so that the shame of your nakedness might not be shown; and anoint your eyes with ointment, (Filled with His Ruach which guides us into all truth) so that you see. Footnote: 1 Psalms 19:10, Psalms 119:72 & 127, Proverbs 30:5. (Revelation 3:19)  “As many as I love, I reprove and discipline. So be ardent and repent. (Revelation 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. (Revelation 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. (Revelation 3:22) He, who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.” ’ ”
Let’s become OVERCOMERS loved one; since His promise is to those that overcome! Now we turn our hearts to this week’s Torah Scriptures and receive His BLESSINGS! Hallelu-YAH!

Here are this Week’s Torah Scriptures:  Ki Tavo “When You Enter In”

Deuteronomy 26:1-29:8; Isaiah 60:1-22; Romans 11:1-15
First fruits declare to Heaven who is most important to us- YHWH still hears and sees our tears and afflictions! Note also you and I are responsible to WHERE our tithe goes- we are not omitted from responsibility to give where He says- He does not give that responsibility to a religious organization, but to each of us individually!
(Deuteronomy 26:1)  “And it shall be, when you come into the land which יהוה your Elohim is giving you as an inheritance, and you possess it and dwell in it, (Deuteronomy 26:2) that you shall take some of the first of all the fruits of the soil which you bring from your land that יהוה your Elohim is giving you, and shall put it in a basket and go to the place where יהוה your Elohim chooses to make His Name dwell there. (Deuteronomy 26:3)  “And you shall come to the one who is priest in those days, and say to him, ‘I shall declare today to יהוה your Elohim that I have come to the land which יהוה swore to our fathers to give us.’ (Deuteronomy 26:4)  “And the priest shall take the basket from your hand and place it before the altar of יהוה your Elohim. (Deuteronomy 26:5)  “And you shall answer and say before יהוה your Elohim, ‘My father was a perishing Aramean, and he went down to Mitsrayim and sojourned there with few men. And there he became a nation, great, mighty, and numerous. (Deuteronomy 26:6)  ‘But the Mitsrites did evil to us, and afflicted us, and imposed hard labor on us. (Deuteronomy 26:7)  ‘Then we cried out to יהוה Elohim of our fathers, and יהוה heard our voice and saw our affliction and our toil and our oppression. (Deuteronomy 26:8)  ‘And יהוה brought us out of Mitsrayim with a strong hand and with an outstretched arm, with great fear and with signs and wonders. (Deuteronomy 26:9)  ‘And He brought us to this place and has given us this land, “a land flowing with milk and honey.” (Deuteronomy 26:10)  ‘And now, see, I have brought the first-fruits of the land which You, O יהוה, have given me.’ Then you shall place it before יהוה your Elohim, and bow down before יהוה your Elohim, (Deuteronomy 26:11)  and shall rejoice in all the good which יהוה your Elohim has given to you and your house, you and the Lĕwite and the stranger who is among you. (Deuteronomy 26:12)  “When you have completed tithing all the tithe of your increase in the third year, which is the year of tithing, and have given it to the Lĕwite, to the stranger, to the fatherless, and to the widow, and they have eaten within your gates and have been satisfied, (Deuteronomy 26:13)  then you shall say before יהוה your Elohim, ‘I have put away the set-apart portion from my house, and also have given it to the Lĕwite, and to the stranger, and to the fatherless, and to the widow, according to all Your command which You have commanded me. I have not transgressed your commands, nor have I forgotten. (Deuteronomy 26:14)  ‘I have not eaten any of it when in neither mourning, nor have I removed any of it for any unclean use, nor given any of it for the dead. I have obeyed the voice of יהוה my Elohim, I have done according to all that you have commanded me. (Deuteronomy 26:15)  ‘Look from Your set-apart dwelling place, from the heavens, and bless Your people Yisra’ĕl and the land which You have given us, as You swore to our fathers, “a land flowing with milk and honey.” ’ (Deuteronomy 26:16) Today יהוה your Elohim is commanding you to do these laws and right-rulings. And you shall guard and do them with all your heart and with all your being. (Deuteronomy 26:17)  “You have today caused יהוה to proclaim to be your Elohim, and to walk in His ways and guard His laws, and His commands, and His right-rulings, and to obey His voice. (Deuteronomy 26:18)  “And יהוה has caused you to proclaim today to be His people, a treasured possession, as He has spoken to you, and to guard all His commands, (Deuteronomy 26:19) so as to set you high above all nations which He has made, for a praise, and for a name, and for esteem, and for you to be a set-apart people to יהוה your Elohim, as He has spoken.”
Guard them= DO them! Obedience brings blessings and Disobedience guarantees these curses!
(Deuteronomy 27:1)  And Mosheh, with the elders of Yisra’ĕl, commanded the people, saying, “Guard all the commands which I am commanding you today. (Deuteronomy 27:2)  “And it shall be, on the day when you pass over the Yardĕn to the land which יהוה your Elohim is giving you, that you shall set up for yourselves large stones, and plaster them with plaster, (Deuteronomy 27:3)  and write on them all the Words of this Torah, when you have passed over, so that you go into the land which יהוה your Elohim is giving you, ‘a land flowing with milk and honey,’ as יהוה Elohim of your fathers has spoken to you. (Deuteronomy 27:4)  “And it shall be, when you have passed over the Yardĕn, that on Mount Ěyḇal you set up these stones, which I command you today, and you shall plaster them with plaster, (Deuteronomy 27:5)  and build an altar to יהוה your Elohim there, an altar of stones – do not use an iron tool on them. (Deuteronomy 27:6)  “Build the altar of יהוה your Elohim with complete stones and you shall offer burnt offerings on it to יהוה your Elohim, (Deuteronomy 27:7) and shall offer peace offerings, and eat there, and rejoice before יהוה your Elohim. (Deuteronomy 27:8)  “And you shall write all the Words of this Torah on the stones – plainly and well.” (Deuteronomy 27:9)  And Mosheh and the priests, the Lĕwites, spoke to all Yisra’ĕl, saying, “Be silent and hear, O Yisra’ĕl: This day you have become the people of יהוה your Elohim, (Deuteronomy 27:10)  and you shall obey the voice of יהוה your Elohim, and do His commands and His laws which I command you today.” (Deuteronomy 27:11)  And Mosheh commanded the people on that day, saying, (Deuteronomy 27:12) “These are to stand on Mount Gerizim to bless the people, when you have passed over the Yardĕn: Shimʽon, and Lĕwi, and Yehuḏah, and Yissasḵar, and Yosĕph, and Binyamin. (Deuteronomy 27:13)  “And these are to stand on Mount Ěyḇal to curse: Re’uḇĕn, Gaḏ, and Ashĕr, and Zeḇulun, Dan, and Naphtali. (Deuteronomy 27:14)  “And the Lĕwites shall speak with a loud voice and say to all the men of Yisra’ĕl: (Deuteronomy 27:15)  Cursed is the man who makes a carved or molded image, an abomination to יהוה, the work of the hands of the craftsman, and sets it up in secret.’ And all the people shall answer and say, ‘Amĕn!’ (Deuteronomy 27:16)  ‘Cursed is he who makes light of his father or his mother.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amĕn!’ (Deuteronomy 27:17)  ‘Cursed is he who moves his neighbor’s boundary.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amĕn!’ (Deuteronomy 27:18)  ‘Cursed is he who misleads the blind in the way.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amĕn!’ (Deuteronomy 27:19)  ‘Cursed is he who twists the right-ruling of the stranger, the fatherless, and widow.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amĕn!’ (Deuteronomy 27:20)  ‘Cursed is he who lies with his father’s wife, because he has uncovered his father’s bed.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amĕn!’ (Deuteronomy 27:21)  ‘Cursed is he who lies with any beast.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amĕn!’ (Deuteronomy 27:22)  ‘Cursed is he who lies with his sister, the daughter of his father or the daughter of his mother.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amĕn!’ (Deuteronomy 27:23)  ‘Cursed is he who lies with his mother-in-law.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amĕn!’ (Deuteronomy 27:24)  ‘Cursed is he who smites his neighbor secretly.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amĕn!’ (Deuteronomy 27:25)  ‘Cursed is he who takes a bribe to slay an innocent being.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amĕn!’ (Deuteronomy 27:26)  ‘Cursed is he who does not establish the Words of this Torah.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amĕn!’

(Deuteronomy 28:25)  “יהוה causes you to be defeated before your enemies – you go out one way against them and flee seven ways before them. And you shall become a horror to all the reigns of the earth.

(Deuteronomy 28:46)  “And they shall be upon you for a sign and for a wonder, and on your seed, forever. (Deuteronomy 28:47)  “Because you did not serve יהוה your Elohim with joy and gladness of heart for all the plenty, (Deuteronomy 28:48) you shall serve your enemies whom יהוה sends against you, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in need of all. And he shall put a yoke of iron on your neck until he has destroyed you. (Deuteronomy 28:49)  “יהוה brings a nation against you from afar, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flies, a nation whose language you shall not understand, (Deuteronomy 28:50) a fierce-looking nation, which shows no regard for the elderly nor show favor to the young, (Deuteronomy 28:51)  and they shall eat the fruit of your livestock and the fruit of your land, until you are destroyed.

(Deuteronomy 28:56)  “The tender and the delicate woman among you, who have not tried to set the sole of her foot on the ground because of her delicateness and tenderness, her eye is evil against the husband of her bosom, and against her son, and against her daughter, (Deuteronomy 28:57)  and against her seed which comes out from between her feet, and her children whom she bears, for she eats them in secret for lack of all, in the siege and distress with which your enemy distresses you in all your gates. (Deuteronomy 28:58)  “If you do not guard to do all the Words of this Torah that are written in this book, to fear this esteemed and awesome Name, יהוה your Elohim, (Deuteronomy 28:59)  then יהוה shall bring upon you and your descendants extraordinary plagues, great and lasting plagues, and grievous and lasting sicknesses. (Deuteronomy 28:60)  “And He shall bring back on you all the diseases of Mitsrayim, of which you were afraid, and they shall cling to you, (Deuteronomy 28:61)  also every sickness and every plague, which is not written in the book of this Torah, יהוה does bring upon you until you are destroyed. (Deuteronomy 28:62)  “And you shall be left with few men, although you had become as numerous as the stars of the heavens, because you did not obey the voice of יהוה your Elohim.

(Deuteronomy 28:65)  “And among those nations you are to find no rest, nor have a resting place for the sole of your foot. But there יהוה shall give you a trembling heart, and failing eyes, and sorrow of being.

(Deuteronomy 29:1)  These are the words of the covenant which יהוה commanded Mosheh to make with the children of Yisra’ĕl in the land of Mo’aḇ, besides the covenant which He made with them in Ḥorĕḇ. (Deuteronomy 29:2)  And Mosheh called all Yisra’ĕl and said to them, “You yourselves saw all that יהוה did before your eyes in the land of Mitsrayim, to Pharaoh and to all his servants and to all his land. (Deuteronomy 29:3)  “Your eyes saw the great trials, the signs, and those great wonders.

(Deuteronomy 29:7)  “And when you came to this place, Siḥon sovereign of Ḥeshbon and Oḡ sovereign of Bashan came out against us to battle, and we smote them, (Deuteronomy 29:8)  and took their land and gave it as an inheritance to the Re’uḇĕnites, and to the Gaḏites, and to half the tribe of Menashsheh.
Darkness must and will come from our disobedience on Planet Earth, but those of us who TESHUVAH (REPENT AND TURN TO FOLLOW HIM) will be a great light in vast darkness!
(Isaiah 60:1)  Arise; shine, for your light has come! And the esteem of יהוה has risen upon you. (Isaiah 60:2)  “For look, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness the peoples. But יהוה arises over you, and His esteem is seen upon you. (Isaiah 60:3)  “And the gentiles shall come to your light 1 and sovereigns to the brightness of your rising. Footnote: 1 Isaiah 60:19, 20, Revelation. 21:23, 24. (Isaiah 60:4)  “Lift up your eyes all around and see: all of them have gathered, they have come to you; your sons come from afar, and your daughters are supported on the side. (Isaiah 60:5)  “Then you shall see and be bright, and your heart shall throb and swell, for the wealth of the sea is turned to you, the riches of the gentiles come to you. (Isaiah 60:6)  “A stream of camels covers your land, the dromedaries of Miḏyan and Ĕphah; all those from Sheḇa come, bearing gold and incense, and proclaiming the praises of יהוה. (Isaiah 60:7)  “All the flocks of Qĕḏar are gathered to you, the rams of Neḇayoth serve you; they come up for acceptance on my altar, and I embellish my esteemed House. (Isaiah 60:8)  “Who are these who fly like a cloud, and like doves to their windows? (Isaiah 60:9)  “Because the coastlands wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring your sons from afar, their silver and their gold with them, to the Name of יהוה your Elohim, and to the Set-apart One of Yisra’ĕl, because He has adorned you. (Isaiah 60:10)  “And the sons of foreigners shall build your walls, and their sovereigns serve you. For in my wrath I have smitten you, but in my delight I shall have compassion on you. (Isaiah 60:11)  “And your gates shall be open continually; they are not shut day or night, to bring to you the wealth of the gentiles, and their sovereigns in procession. (Isaiah 60:12)  “The nation and the reign that do not serve you shall perish; and those gentiles shall be utterly laid waste. (Isaiah 60:13)  “The esteem of Leḇanon shall come to you, cypress, pine, and the box tree together, to embellish the place of my set-apart place. And I shall make the place of my feet esteemed. (Isaiah 60:14)  “And the sons of those who afflicted you come bowing to you, and all those who despised you shall bow themselves at the soles of your feet. And they shall call you: City of יהוה, Tsiyon of the Set-apart One of Yisra’ĕl. (Isaiah 60:15)  “Instead of you being forsaken and hated, so that no one passes through you, I shall make you an everlasting excellence, a joy of many generations. (Isaiah 60:16)  “And you shall drink dry the milk of the gentiles, and shall milk the breast of sovereigns. And you shall know that I, יהוה, your Savior and your Redeemer, am the Elohim of Yaʽaqoḇ. (Isaiah 60:17)  “Instead of bronze I bring gold, and instead of iron I bring silver, and bronze instead of wood, and iron instead of stones. And I shall make your officers peace, and your magistrate’s righteousness. (Isaiah 60:18)  “Violence shall no longer be heard in your land, neither wasting nor ruin within your borders. And you shall call your walls Deliverance, and your gates Praise. (Isaiah 60:19)  “No longer is the sun your light by day, nor does the moon give light to you for brightness, but יהוה shall be to you an everlasting light, and your Elohim your comeliness. (Isaiah 60:20)  “No longer does your sun go down, nor your moon withdraw itself, for יהוה shall be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be ended. (Isaiah 60:21)  “And your people, all of them righteous, shall inherit the earth forever – a branch of my planting, a work of my hands, to be adorned. (Isaiah 60:22)  “The little shall become a thousand and the small one a strong nation1. I, יהוה, shall hasten it in its time.” Footnote: 1 See 41:14, Daniel 2:34-44.
(Romans 11:1)  I say then, has Elohim rejected His people? Let it not be! I also am a Yisra’ĕlite, of the seed of Aḇraham, of the tribe of Binyamin. (Romans 11:2)  Elohim has not rejected His people whom He knew beforehand.1 or do you not know what the Scripture says of Ěliyahu, how he pleads with Elohim against Yisra’ĕl, saying, Footnote: 1 Psalms 94:14. (Romans 11:3)  “יהוה, they have killed your prophets and overthrown your altars, and I alone am left, and they seek my life”? (Romans 11:4)  But what does the answer of Elohim say to him? “I have left for myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baʽal.” (Romans 11:5)  So therefore also, at this present time a remnant according to the choice of favor has come to be.  (Romans 11:6)  And if by favor, it is no longer of works, otherwise favor is no longer favor. And if it is of works, it is no longer favor; otherwise work is no longer work. (Romans 11:7)  What then? Yisra’ĕl has not obtained what it seeks, but the chosen did obtain it, and the rest were hardened. (Romans 11:8)  As it has been written, “יהוה has given them a spirit of deep sleep, eyes not to see and ears not to hear, unto this day.” (Romans 11:9)  Dawiḏ also says, “Let their table become for a snare, and for a trap, and for a stumbling-block and recompense to them, (Romans 11:10) let their eyes be darkened, not to see, and bow down their back always.” (Romans 11:11)  I say then, have they stumbled that they should fall? Let it not be! But by their fall deliverance has come to the gentiles, to provoke them to jealousy. (Romans 11:12)  And if their fall is riches for the world, and their failure riches for the gentiles, how much more their completeness! (Romans 11:13)  For I speak to you, the gentiles, inasmuch as I am an emissary to the gentiles, I esteem my service, (Romans 11:14) if somehow I might provoke to jealousy those who are my flesh and save some of them. (Romans 11:15)  For if their casting away is the restoration to favor of the world, what is their acceptance but life from the dead?
Loved One, we really do pray YOU make every effort to love the Creator according to His desires and not our learned ones that are filled with many inherited pagan ritual both in Churchianity and Judaism. I pray that we may each look inwardly and turn- yes turn our own stiff necks toward Him and follow Him in loving obedience- that all the blessings He has planned for us may OVERTAKE US! I pray you gain an ear to hear Him and the courage to obey Him! I pray that you draw ever close to our Creator so that you FEAR NOT no matter what the “kings of the earth” do! He has made provision for our victory and overcoming- as we choose to remove our iniquities and unbelief. Further, our overcoming is only achievable by our willingness to submit and obey in REPENTANCE! We really must decrease and allow, by our determined choices, for Him to INCREASE in us- the HOPE OF GLORY!
Thanks for your continued prayers for me- they are still much cherished- and we thank you! Thank you! And THANK YOU! You are much loved!
Shalom to your heart and home loved one!
Again, some have asked 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 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 from here forward!) 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 Yehuḏite 1, saying, “Let us go with you, for we have heard that Elohim is with you.” ’ ” Footnote: 1John 4:22.
