Shabbat Shalom Loved One! 
Some ask 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, I want to pick up last week with a review and help us come to a conclusion about a matter. - Who are the SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF YAHSHUA- HIS GENERATION? (That appeared to be totally cut off) Last week in preparing I had an unusual experience in sneezing and twice and five vomits- all violent! I remembered my study on INIQUITIES prompted by my reading Ana Mendez Ferrell’s book on INIQUITIES and generational curses and open doors for the demonic realm I had done a few months back. Do you remember? Anyway it is attached again (click here for attachment) I was meditating on a certain scripture; I share again with you below in the corrected name NKJV.
Remember from our previous study on INIQUITIES that they are not sin, as no one is judged for another’s sin; but INIQUITIES are spiritual doors of attack allowing the testing’s and propensity to like sins from the generational curses passed down from the sins of our fathers- our ancestors- doors we must close by dealing with them. I hope you will take a look at the attached for yourself and your walk to draw nearer to our coming KING! So as I rethought the lines of the scriptures below- I knew what had happened was not vomiting from bad food or a “bug”. Father in His mercy and plan was removing some crud and closing some doors spiritually for me.
Isaiah 53:1 Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of Yahweh been revealed? Isaiah 53:2 He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, and as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or comeliness; and when we see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him.
Isaiah 53:3 He is despised and rejected by men, a Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. Isaiah 53:4 Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by Yahweh, and afflicted. Isaiah 53:5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.
Isaiah 53:6  All we like sheep have gone astray; we have each turned, every one, to his own way; And Yahweh has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. Isaiah 53:7  He was oppressed and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, So He opened not His mouth.
We can BECOME Yahshua’s generation of sons and daughters. But please note- we CAN become that generation that overcomes death. We must walk as He walked- Hera what our Father says and speak and do ONLY that!
Isaiah 53:8 He was taken from prison and from judgment, and who will declare His generation? For He was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgressions of my people He was stricken.
2 Corinthians 6:16 and what union has the Dwelling Place of Elohim with idols? For you are a Dwelling Place of the living Elohim, as Elohim has said, “I shall dwell in them and walk among them, and I shall be their Elohim, and they shall be my people.” 2 Corinthians 6:17 Therefore, “Come out from among them and be separate, says יהוה, and do not touch what is unclean, and I shall receive you. 2 Corinthians 6:18 “And (then) I shall be a Father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to me, says יהוה the Almighty.”
As we deal with iniquities and shut doors of wickedness and hasatan’s attacks, we become that final generation of sons and daughters- the REMNANT BRIDE who are purely His generation of OVERCOMERS! We can be those of us that are alive and remain and even overcome death. You know some of us will be alive and remain at the Last Trumpet blast (Feast of Trumpets) probably not many of us- but some of us will be.
1 Thessalonians 4:15  For this we say to you by the word of Yahshua, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of Messiah Yahshua will by no means precede those who are asleep. 1 Thessalonians 4:16  For Yahshua Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of Yahweh, and the dead in Messiah will rise first. 1 Thessalonians 4:17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet Yahshua in the air, and thus we shall always be with Yahshua. 1 Thessalonians 4:18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.

So our study again today is about how darkness creeps in until it is gross darkness- consider our ensample SODOM and Lot and his family as in our world today- sin is more and more acceptable- no wonder Yaakov (James) warned us- and my daughter Lindsay Ann also warned me- DO THE GOSPEL DAD!
Obviously I thought I already was---but she did not say preach the gospel, and she did not say teach the gospel- she said DO THE GOSPEL DAD- three times- a heavenly encounter vision that brought me to tears---and introspection.
Do we also find ourselves mockers of Yah by saying about the present birth pains in the earth and the earth changes so visible- “these things have happened always.”
Yep- mockers will come forth and ask – where is the promise of His coming? People have always said that!
(2 Peter 3:1)  This is now, beloved ones, the second letter I write to you, in which I stir up your sincere mind, to remember (2 Peter 3:2)  the words previously spoken by the set-apart prophets, and of the command of the Master and Savior, spoken by your emissaries, (2 Peter 3:3)   knowing this first: that mockers shall come in the last days with mocking, walking according to their own lusts,  (2 Peter 3:4)  and saying, Where is the promise of His coming? Since the fathers fell asleep, all continues as from the beginning of creation.” (2 Peter 3:5)  For they choose to have this hidden from them: that the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by the Word of Elohim, 1Footnote: 1 Hebrews 11:3. (2 Peter 3:6) through which the world at that time was destroyed, being flooded with water. (2 Peter 3:7)  And the present heavens and the earth are treasured up by the same Word, being kept for fire, to a Day of Judgment and destruction of wicked men. (2 Peter 3:8)  But, beloved ones let not this one matter be hidden from you: that with יהוה one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. (2 Peter 3:9)  יהוה is not slow in regard to the promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward us, not wishing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.1 Footnote: 11 Timothy 2:4. (2 Peter 3:10)  But the day of יהוה shall come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with intense heat, and the earth and the works that are in it shall be burned up. (2 Peter 3:11)  Seeing all these are to be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be in set-apart behavior and reverence, (2 Peter 3:12)  looking for and hastening the coming of the day of Elohim, through which the heavens shall be destroyed, being set on fire, and the elements melt with intense heat! (2 Peter 3:13)  But according to His promise we wait for a renewed heavens and a renewed earth in which righteousness dwells. (2 Peter 3:14)  So then, beloved ones, looking forward to this, do your utmost to be found by Him in peace, spotless and blameless, (2 Peter 3:15)  and reckon the patience of our Master as deliverance, as also our beloved brother Sha’ul wrote to you, according to the wisdom given to him, (2 Peter 3:16)  as also in all his letters, speaking in them concerning these matters, in which some are hard to understand,1 which those who are untaught and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do also the other Scriptures. Footnote: 1 See 1 Corinthians 11:6. (2 Peter 3:17)  You, then, beloved ones, being forewarned, watch, lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the delusion of the lawless, (2 Peter 3:18) but grow in the favor and knowledge of our Master and Savior יהושע Messiah. To Him be the esteem both now and to a day that abides. Amĕn.
We will come to REPENTANCE and stand as righteousness by trust and obedience (Faith) or not stand and endure at all
We are told by Yahshua to endure as great betrayals and troubles are coming. We are also told to pray by Yahshua that we be made worthy that we may stand enduring during these times and produce fruits worthy of repentance:
Luke 21:16 “And you shall also be betrayed by parents and brothers and relatives and friends. And some of you shall be put to death. Luke 21:17 “And you shall be hated by all because of My Name. Luke 21:18 “But not a hair of your head shall be lost at all. Luke 21:19 “Possess your lives by your endurance! Luke 21:20 “And when you see Yerushalayim surrounded by armies, then know that it’s lying waste is near. Luke 21:21 “Then let those in Yehuḏah flee to the mountains, and let those who are in the midst of her go out, and let not those who are in the fields enter her.
Below is the finishing of what Messiah Yahshua did NOT say when He came the first time—it was not yet time for Judgment and Yahweh’s wrath for disobedience- He came the first time to offer reconciliation to the Father as a humble LAMB to the slaughter. The remaining event- His second coming- is as the LION of the Tribe of Yehuda—very different- we must now repent or perish!
The portion of Isaiah 61 He read when He first came: Isaiah 61:1 The Spirit of the Master יהוה is upon me, because יהוה has anointed me to bring good news to the meek. He has sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim release to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound, Isaiah 61:2 to proclaim the acceptable year of יהוה, (He stopped here)
This part was reserved for NOW…we must become trees of RIGHTEOUSNESS!
and the day of vengeance of our Elohim, to comfort all who mourn, Isaiah 61:3 to appoint unto those who mourn in Tsiyon: to give them embellishment for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. And they shall be called trees of righteousness, a planting of יהוה, to be adorned.
Luke 21:22 “Because these are days of vengeance, to fill all that have been written. Luke 21:23 “And woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing children in those days! For there shall be great distress in the earth and wrath upon this people. Luke 21:24 “And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Yerushalayim shall be trampled underfoot by the gentiles until the times of the gentiles are filled.
We shall soon see things in the heavens that cause many men’s hearts to fail them!
Luke 21:25  “And there shall be signs in the sun, and moon, and stars, and on the earth anxiety of nations, in bewilderment at the roaring of the sea, and agitation, Luke 21:26  men fainting from fear and the expectation of what is coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. Luke 21:27 “And then they shall see the Son of Aḏam coming in a cloud with power and much esteem. Luke 21:28 “And when these matters begin to take place, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” Luke 21:29 And He spoke a parable to them, “Look at the fig tree, and all the trees. Luke 21:30 “When they have already budded, observing it, you shall know for yourselves that summer is now near. Luke 21:31 “So you also, when you see these matters take place, know that the reign of Elohim is near.
Which generation was He speaking of? The generation that sees these things come to pass!
Luke 21:32 “Truly, I say to you, this generation shall by no means pass away till all shall have taken place. Luke 21:33 “The heaven and the earth shall pass away, but my words shall by no means pass away. Luke 21:34 And take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down by gluttony, and drunkenness, and worries of this life, and that day come on you suddenly. Luke 21:35 “For it shall come as a snare on all those dwelling on the face of all the earth. Luke 21:36 “Watch then at all times, and pray that you be counted worthy to escape all this about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Aḏam.”
2 Peter 3:9  יהוה (Yahshua) is not slow in regard to the promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward us, not wishing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.1 Footnote: 1 1 Timothy 2:4. 2 Peter 3:10  But the day of יהוה (Yahweh) shall come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with intense heat, and the earth and the works that are in it shall be burned up. 2 Peter 3:11  Seeing all these are to be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be in set-apart behavior and reverence, 2 Peter 3:12  looking for and hastening the coming of the day of Elohim, through which the heavens shall be destroyed, being set on fire, and the elements melt with intense heat! 2 Peter 3:13 But according to His promise we wait for a renewed heavens and a renewed earth in which righteousness dwells.
Note this is a word for the Last Days “church” or BODY of MESSIAH – Laodicea US- yep most likely the warning is for US! Neither hot nor cold- but only lukewarm who many will get vomited from His mouth
Colossians 2:1  For I wish you to know what a great struggle I have for you and those in Laodikeia, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh, Colossians 2:2  in order that their hearts might be encouraged, being knit together in love, and to all riches of the entire confirmation of understanding, to a true knowledge of the secret of Elohim, and of the Father, and of the Messiah, Colossians 2:3  in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.1 Footnote: 1 Isaiah 11:2, Colossians. 2:9 Colossians 2:4 and this I say, so that no one deceives you with enticing words. Colossians 2:5 for though I am absent in the flesh, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the steadfastness of your belief in Messiah. Colossians 2:6 Therefore, as you accepted Messiah יהושע the Master, walk in Him, Colossians 2:7  having been rooted and built up in Him, and established in the belief (Faith-trust), as you were taught, overflowing in it with thanksgiving. Colossians 2:8 See to it that no one makes a prey of you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary matters of the world, 1 and not according to Messiah. Footnote: 1 See v. 20, and Galatians 4:3 & 9. Colossians 2:9 because in Him dwells all the completeness of the Mightiness bodily, Colossians 2:10 and you have been made complete in Him, who is the Head of all principality and authority.
Yahweh always desired to circumcise our HEARTS!
Colossians 2:11 In Him you were also circumcised with a circumcision not made with hands, in the putting off of the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Messiah, Colossians 2:12 having been buried with Him in immersion, in which you also were raised with Him through the belief in the working of Elohim, who raised Him from the dead. Colossians 2:13  And you, being dead in your trespasses 1 and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, Footnote: 1 Ephesians 2:1.
Colossians 2:14 having blotted out the certificate of debt against us – by the dogmas – which stood against us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the stake. Colossians 2:15 Having stripped the principalities and the authorities, He made a public display of them, having prevailed over them in it. Colossians 2:16 Let no one therefore judge you in eating or in drinking, or in respect of a festival or a new moon or Sabbaths – Colossians 2:17 which are a shadow of what is to come – but the Body of the Messiah. Colossians 2:18 Let no one deprive you of the prize, one who takes delight in false humility and worship of messengers, taking his stand on what he has not seen, puffed up by his fleshly mind, Colossians 2:19 and not holding fast to the Head, from whom all the Body – nourished and knit together by joints and ligaments – grows with the growth of Elohim. Colossians 2:20  If, then, you died with Messiah from the elementary matters 1 of the world, why, as though living in the world, do you subject yourselves to regulations: NOTE BELOW THESE ARE MENS ADDED REGULATIONS OR LAWS Footnote: 1 See v. 8, and Galatians 4:3 & 9. Colossians 2:21 “Do not touch, do not taste, do not handle” – Colossians 2:22 which are all to perish with use – according to the commands and teachings of men? 1 Footnote: 1 Note: commands and teachings of men, not of Elohim. Colossians 2:23 these indeed have an appearance of wisdom in self-imposed worship, humiliation and harsh treatment of the body – of no value at all, only for satisfaction of the flesh.
We do not call filthy what Yah has cleansed- these word were spoken to me by Yahshua so I share with you---don’t call yourself a sinner- yes you HAVE sinned- but now you flee sin as a washed in the blood of the LAMB righteous one!
Loved One, do we really believe we will be allowed entry into His Kingdom if we practice LAWLESSNESS- or do away with the Torah which is defined as SIN? Should we not at least earnestly seek and ask the Father to change those things about us that are unacceptable to Him BEFORE we must stand in front of Him and be judged? WHAT is SIN again? Is it okay to sin and do away with Torah? Heaven FORBIDS!
1 John 3:1 See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of Elohim! For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.   John 3:2 Beloved ones, now we are children of Elohim. And it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. 1 John 3:3 and everyone having this expectation in Him cleanses himself, as He is clean. 1 John 3:4 everyone doing sin also does lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness. 1 John 3:5 and you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin. 1 John 3:6 Everyone staying in Him does not sin. Everyone sinning has neither seen Him nor known Him.1 Footnote: 1See 2:4 & 3 John v. 11. 1 John 3:7 Little children, let no one lead you astray. The one doing righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous.1 Footnote: 1 See 2:29. 1 John 3:8 the one doing sin is of the devil, because the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of Elohim was manifested: to destroy the works of the devil.1 Footnote: 1 See Titus 2:14. 1 John 3:9 Everyone having been born of Elohim does not sin, because His seed stays in him, and he is powerless to sin, because he has been born of Elohim.
Here’s how we know we have become the CHTILDREN- SONS AND DAUGHTERS – the Last Generation The Conclusion of the matter
1 John 3:10 In this the children of Elohim and the children of the devil are manifest: Everyone not doing righteousness is not of Elohim,1 neither the one not loving his brother. Footnote: 1 See 3 John v. 11.
Should we not call on our Heavenly Father and not follow vain teachings of our earthly fathers?
(1 Peter 1:17)  And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, pass the time of your sojourning in fear, (1 Peter 1:18)  knowing that you were redeemed from your futile way of life inherited from your fathers, not with what is corruptible, silver or gold, (1 Peter 1:19)  but with the precious blood of Messiah, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, (1 Peter 1:20)  foreknown, indeed, before the foundation of the world, but manifested in these last times for your sakes, (1 Peter 1:21)  who through Him believe in Elohim who raised Him from the dead and gave Him esteem, so that your belief and expectation are in Elohim.
How do we cleanse ourselves? OBEDIENCE IN HEART AND ACTION
(1 Peter 1:22)  Now that you have cleansed your lives in obeying the truth through the Spirit to unfeigned brotherly love, love one another fervently with a clean heart, (1 Peter 1:23) having been born again – not of corruptible seed, but incorruptible – through the living Word of Elohim, which remains forever... (We follow and obey the word not traditions of men and by His blood OVERCOME hasatan)
(Revelation 7:14)  And I said to him, “Master, you know.” And he said to me, “These are those coming out of the great distress, having washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
Let’s consider what rids us of Vain Worship- RELATIONSHIP
On these 2 commandments hang the entire Torah and the Prophets! (Anyone can say and not do)
(Matthew 22:36)  “Teacher: which is the great command in the Torah?” (Matthew 22:37)  And יהושע said to him, “‘you shall love יהוה your Elohim with all your heart, and with all your being, and with your entire mind.’ (Matthew 22:38)  “This is the first and great command. (Matthew 22:39)  “And the second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ (Matthew 22:40)  “On these two commands hang all the Torah and the Prophets.”
Why is this so important concerning relationships? IF you love YHWH you will obey Him from that love- you will choose to honor what He asks of you. Let’s look closely at Yahshua’s statements about what indicates love. (John 14:15)  If you love me, you shall guard my commands.1 Footnote: 1 See Exodus 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. (John 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 possesses my commands and guards (keeps) 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.”
Please note that the first four commands teach us how to love YHWH Elohim the way He declares He wants to be loved. The last six commands teach us how to love our neighbor as ourselves. Actions of obedience are critical to His definition of love.  So many in this day of Laodicean believers; think in the Renewed Covenant or New Testament- Yahshua did away with the commands as He taught to love one another - that is nearly funny but very sad. We should have enough sense to see how He defines love above in His own words! We should and must understand that in the BEGINNING- Yahshua was the word and is the word- YES- it was Yahshua at Mt. Sinai – He is the word that was later made flesh and dwelled among us. Never was it a graceless Father and a graceful son- Yahshua! Yahshua taught us to pray OUR FATHER gave His only son that we may have life- does that sound graceless? Yahshua never disagreed with His Father but only spoke what He heard His Father speak and did what He saw His Father do. Even Noah and Moses found grace in His eyes! Most of this last day’s assembly/body of believers in Messiah has believed in a Torah less- Lawless Yahshua (Another Jesus) and have determined that grace is a license to do away with the Torah- Instructions- defined as “LAW” in KJV. What is sin? (1Jn 3:4)  Whosoever commits sin transgresses also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. I must assume these last day’s believers among us think these are mankind’s laws these sinners are breaking! NOPE! These are YHWH’s instruction- TORAH- “LAW” they have done away with. Let’s go to Yahshua’s words again- since this Scripture is part of our study this week- I am wondering what part of “THINK NOT” we just don’t understand! (Matthew 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. (Matthew 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. (Matthew 5:19) Question for us scholars- Is their still a Heaven and Earth? It seems to even us casual observers that there is- so the Torah and prophets is not done away with- no matter how we define Scripture!
Here’s a quick look at Pastor Least in the Kingdom! YIKES! Talk about Grace and Mercy- Wow- these that teach that these commands are past and done away with are mercifully in the kingdom apparently.
“Whoever, then, breaks one of the least of these commands, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the reign (Kingdom) of Heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the reign of the heavens. (Matthew 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, Galatians 6:13.
Why is obedience in honoring loved ones so important to YHWH? If your spouse, parent or child said they loved you but never wanted to spend any time with you or never did what you requested- it would not take that long to deduce that they did not really love or honor you would it? Their ACTIONS speak louder than their words. We, as the BRIDE OF MESSIAH must honor our husband just like wives are required to for their husbands and as the husband Messiah will love us as His own flesh; just like the husband is required to do for his wife. Same way with our Creator- we are required to DO the Gospel and commands of YHWH! Many say but do not DO!
Let’s look at the Shem Tov Hebrew copy of Matthew and see what Yahshua taught- (Matthew 23:2) saying, “The scribes and the Pharisees sit on the seat of Mosheh. (Matthew 23:3)  “Therefore, whatever he says (MOSES) for you to guard, guard and do. But do not do according to their works, for they say, and do not do. (Ephesians 5:22)  Wives, subject yourselves to your own husbands, as to the Master. (Ephesians 5:23)  Because the husband is head of the wife, as also the Messiah is head of the assembly, and He is Savior of the body. (Ephesians 5:24)  But as the assembly is subject to Messiah, so also let the wives be to their own husbands in every respect. (Ephesians 5:25)  Husbands, love your wives, as Messiah also did love the assembly and gave Himself for it…(Ephesians 5:33)  Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself (love here is security- taking care of her like himself- his own flesh); and the wife see that she reverence (honors-respects) her husband. Why does the Word declare this sort of method of showing love to each other? Obviously; the wife needs security and to know she is cared for and the husband needs to be honored- that is just how Yahshua created us. Not bad or wrong or lesser than the other, just created differently with different needs. When we as husbands fail as providers- and in these storms today- that is not so difficult to accomplish- so naturally the wife will try and provide for herself (The need is in her for security); and when the wife does not respect or honor her husband thinking that he must “EARN” that respect, the husband will go looking for that honor. It (The need for honor) is in him- just like Messiah was not honored in His own home town and COULD DO NO MIGHTY WORKS!
Here is the answer for our dilemma LOVED ONES! Our need is not supplied by others responding to our prayer and doing what we want—our prayers that THEY CHANGE- that is- we seem to want others (horizontal relationships) to do the changing and sometimes we  may foolishly pray- YAH change so and so- we even think and pray if our children- our boss, our husbands- our parents, our wives, our girlfriends, our boyfriends, our teachers etc. WOULD CHANGE all would be well. Loved One we cannot even change ourselves much less others. Our Heavenly Father alone can do that so our prayers need to be about obedience VERTICAL with us and the Father. That happens when we submit and allow Him to change US! IF we will obey Him vertical He can and will CHANGE US! 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.
Here is the KEY for your action to decree your trust, belief- FAITH that you are submitting and obedient- ONLY THEN WILL OUR KING STAND UP FOR US----WHEN WE STAND DOWN!
When we submit- 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.
Now let’s look at our need to flee the culture of this world.
(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: 1 Matthew 13:22, Luke.4:5-6, Luke 14:33, Romans 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 ourselves to His words and instructions – Torah- as this obedience is always a VERTICAL choice) yourselves to Elohim. Resist the devil 1 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?
To try and summarize, we cannot fix others as that is a horizontal prayer, that is to say they are on our level and much like us; we can only submit vertically to obey the Father as He alone can change- and then only if we so choose! Let’s continue to choose LIFE! (Deuteronomy 30:19)  “I have called the heavens and the earth as witnesses today against you: I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Therefore you shall choose life, so that you live, both you and your seed, (Deuteronomy 30:20) to love יהוה your Elohim, to obey His voice, and to cling to Him – for He is your life and the length of your days – to dwell in the land which יהוה swore to your fathers, to Aḇraham, to Yitsḥaq, and to Yaʽaqoḇ, to give them.”
This Week’s Torah Scriptures: Chayeisara “Life of Sarah”
Genesis 23:1-25:18; 1 Kings 1: 1-31; 1 Corinthians 15:50-57
(Genesis 23:1)  And Sarah lived one hundred and twenty-seven years, the years of the life of Sarah. (Genesis 23:2)  And Sarah died in Qiryath Arba, that is Ḥeḇron, in the land of Kenaʽan, and Aḇraham came to mourn for Sarah and to weep for her.(Genesis 23:3)  Then Aḇraham rose up from beside his dead, and spoke to the sons of Ḥĕth, saying, (Genesis 23:4)  “I am a foreigner and a sojourner among you. Give me property for a burial site among you, so that I bury my dead from my presence.” (Genesis 23:5)  And the sons of Ḥĕth answered Aḇraham, saying to him, (Genesis 23:6) “Hear us, my master: You are a prince of Elohim among us. Bury your dead in the choicest of our burial places. None of us withholds from you his burial site, from burying your dead.” (Genesis 23:7)  So Aḇraham rose and bowed himself to the people of the land, the sons of Ḥĕth. (Genesis 23:8)  And he spoke with them, saying, “If it is your desire that I bury my dead from my presence, hear me, and approach Ephron son of Tsoḥar for me, (Genesis 23:9)  and let me have the cave of Maḵpĕlah which he has, which is at the end of his field. Let him give it to me for the complete amount of silver, as property for a burial site among you.” (Genesis 23:10)  And Ephron dwelt among the sons of Ḥĕth. And Ephron the Ḥittite answered Aḇraham in the hearing of the sons of Ḥĕth, all who entered at the gate of his city, saying, (Genesis 23:11) “No, my master, listen to me! I shall give you the field and the cave that is in it. I shall give it to you in the presence of the sons of my people. I shall give it to you. Bury your dead!” (Genesis 23:12)  And Aḇraham bowed himself down before the people of the land, (Genesis 23:13) and he spoke to Ephron in the hearing of the people of the land, saying, “If only you would hear me. I shall give the amount of silver for the field, take it from me, and let me bury my dead there.” (Genesis 23:14)  And Ephron answered Aḇraham, saying to him, (Genesis 23:15) “My master, listen to me! The land is worth four hundred sheqels of silver. What is that between you and me? So bury your dead.” (Genesis 23:16)  And Aḇraham listened to Ephron, and Aḇraham weighed out the silver for Ephron which he had named in the hearing of the sons of Ḥĕth, four hundred sheqels of silver, currency of the merchants. (Genesis 23:17)  Thus the field of Ephron which was in Maḵpĕlah, which was before Mamrĕ, the field and the cave which was in it, and all the trees that were in the field, which were within all the surrounding borders, were deeded (Genesis 23:18) to Aḇraham as a possession in the presence of the sons of Ḥĕth, before all who went in at the gate of his city. (Genesis 23:19)  And after this Aḇraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the field of Maḵpĕlah, before Mamrĕ, that is Ḥeḇron, in the land of Kenaʽan. (Genesis 23:20) Thus the field and the cave that is in it were deeded to Aḇraham by the sons of Ḥĕth as property for a burial site.
Don’t marry my seed into this pagan land of disobedience!
(Genesis 24:1)  And Aḇraham was old, advanced in years. And יהוה had blessed Aḇraham in every way. (Genesis 24:2)  And Aḇraham said to the oldest servant of his house, who ruled over all that he had, “Please, put your hand under my thigh, (Genesis 24:3)  so that I make you swear by יהוה, the Elohim of the heavens and the Elohim of the earth, that you do not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Kenaʽanites, among whom I dwell, (Genesis 24:4)  but to go to my land and to my relatives, and take a wife for my son Yitsḥaq.(Genesis 24:5)  And the servant said to him, “What if the woman refuses to follow me to this land? Do I then take your son back to the land from which you came?” (Genesis 24:6)  And Aḇraham said to him, “Beware lest you take my son back there! (Genesis 24:7)  “יהוה, Elohim of the heavens, who took me from my father’s house and from the land of my relatives, and who spoke to me and swore to me, saying, ‘To your seed I give this land,’ He sends His messenger before you, and you shall take a wife for my son from there. (Genesis 24:8)  “And if the woman refuses to follow you, then you shall be released from this oath; only, do not take my son back there.” (Genesis 24:9)  Then the servant put his hand under the thigh of Aḇraham his master, and swore to him concerning this matter. (Genesis 24:10)  And the servant took ten of his master’s camels and left, for his entire master’s good gifts were in his hand. And he arose and went to Aram Naharayim, to the city of Naḥor. (Genesis 24:11)  And he made his camels kneel down outside the city by a fountain of water at evening time, the time when women go out to draw water.
Learning of my Masters MASTER! Introduction to YHWH!
(Genesis 24:12)  And he said, “יהוה, Elohim of my master Aḇraham, please cause her to meet before me this day, and show kindness to my master Aḇraham. (Genesis 24:13)  “See, I am standing here by the fountain of water, and the daughters of the men of the city are coming out to draw water. (Genesis 24:14)  “Now let it be that the young woman to whom I say, ‘Please let down your jar to let me drink,’ and she says, ‘Drink, and let me water your camels too,’ let her be the one whom you have appointed for Your servant Yitsḥaq. And let me know by this that you have shown kindness to my master.” (Genesis 24:15)  And it came to be, before he had ended speaking, that see, Riḇqah, who was born to Bethu’ĕl, son of Milkah, the wife of Naḥor, Aḇraham’s brother, came out with her jar on her shoulder. (Genesis 24:16)  And the young woman was very good-looking, a maiden, no man having known her. And she went down to the fountain, filled her jar, and came up. (Genesis 24:17)  And the servant ran to meet her and said, “Please let me drink a little water from your jar.” (Genesis 24:18)  And she said, “Drink, my master.” And she hurried and let her jar down to her hand, and gave him a drink. (Genesis 24:19)  And when she had finished giving him a drink, she said, “Let me draw water for your camels too, until they have finished drinking.” (Genesis 24:20)  And she hurried and emptied her jar into the trough, ran back to the fountain to draw water, and drew for all his camels. (Genesis 24:21)  And watching her, the man remained silent in order to know whether יהוה had prospered his way or not. (Genesis 24:22)  And it came to be, when the camels had finished drinking, that the man took a golden nose ring weighing half a sheqel, and two bracelets for her wrists weighing ten sheqels of gold, (Genesis 24:23)  and said, “Whose daughter are you? Please inform me, is there room in your father’s house for us to spend the night?” (Genesis 24:24)  And she said to him, “I am the daughter of Bethu’ĕl, Milkah’s son, whom she bore to Naḥor.” (Genesis 24:25)  And she said to him, “We have both straw and fodder enough, and room to spend the night.” 
YES – My master‘s MASTER is the real Elohim and worthy of my worship also!
(Genesis 24:26)  And the man bowed down his head and worshipped יהוה. (Genesis 24:27)  And he said, “Blessed be יהוה Elohim of my master Aḇraham, who has not forsaken His kindness and His truth toward my master. As for me, being on the way, יהוה led me to the house of my master’s brothers.” (Genesis 24:28)  Then the young woman ran and informed those of her mother’s house these matters. (Genesis 24:29)  And Riḇqah had a brother whose name was Laḇan, and Laḇan ran out to the man, to the fountain. (Genesis 24:30)  And it came to be, when he saw the nose ring, and the bracelets on his sister’s wrists, and when he heard the words of his sister Riḇqah, saying, “Thus the man spoke to me,” that he went to the man and saw him standing by the camels at the fountain. (Genesis 24:31)  And he said, “Come in, O blessed of יהוה! Why do you stand outside? I myself have prepared the house, and a place for the camels.” (Genesis 24:32)  So the man came into the house, while he unloaded the camels and provided straw and fodder for the camels and water to wash his feet and the feet of the men who were with him, (Genesis 24:33)  and set food before him to eat. But he said, “Let me not eat until I have spoken my word.” And he said, “Speak on.” (Genesis 24:34)  And he said, “I am Aḇraham’s servant. (Genesis 24:35)  “And יהוה has blessed my master exceedingly, and he has become great. And He has given him flocks and herds, and silver and gold, and male and female servants, and camels and donkeys. (Genesis 24:36)  “And Sarah my master’s wife bore a son to my master when she was old. And he has given to him all that he has. (Genesis 24:37)  “And my master made me swear, saying, ‘Do not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Kenaʽanites, in whose land I dwell, (Genesis 24:38) but go to my father’s house and to my relatives, and take a wife for my son.’ (Genesis 24:39)  “And I said to my master, ‘What if the woman does not follow me?’ (Genesis 24:40)  “But he said to me, ‘יהוה, before whom I walk, sends His messenger with you and shall prosper your way. And you shall take a wife for my son from my relatives and from my father’s house. (Genesis 24:41)  ‘Then, when you go to my relatives, you are to be released from this oath. And if they do not give her to you, then you are released from my oath.’ (Genesis 24:42)  “And this day I came to the fountain and said, ‘יהוה, Elohim of my master Aḇraham, please, if You are prospering the way in which I am going, (Genesis 24:43)  see, I am standing by the fountain of water, and when the maiden comes out to draw water, and I say to her, “Please give me a little water from your jar to drink,” (Genesis 24:44)  and she says to me, “Drink, and let me draw for your camels too,” let her be the woman whom יהוה has appointed for my master’s son.’ (Genesis 24:45)  “I had not yet ended speaking in my heart, then see, Riḇqah was coming out with her jar on her shoulder. And she went down to the fountain and drew water. And I said to her, ‘Please let me drink.’ (Genesis 24:46)  “And she hurried and let her jar down from her shoulder, and said, ‘Drink, and let me water your camels too.’ So I drank, and she watered the camels too. (Genesis 24:47)  “And I asked her, and said, ‘Whose daughter are you?’ And she said, ‘The daughter of Bethu’ĕl, Naḥor’s son, whom Milkah bore to him.’ Then I put the nose ring on her nose and the bracelets on her wrists. (Genesis 24:48)  “And I bowed my head and worshipped יהוה, and blessed יהוה, Elohim of my master Aḇraham, who had led me in the true way to take the daughter of my master’s brother for his son. (Genesis 24:49)  “And now, if you are going to show kindness and truth to my master, let me know, and if not, let me know, so that I turn to the right or to the left.” (Genesis 24:50)  And Laḇan answered – Bethu’ĕl too – and said, “The matter comes from YAHWEH; we are not able to speak to you either evil or good. (Genesis 24:51)  “See, Riḇqah is before you. Take her and go, and let her be your master’s son’s wife, as יהוה has spoken.” (Genesis 24:52)  And it came to be, when Aḇraham’s servant heard their words, that he bowed himself towards the earth before יהוה. (Genesis 24:53)  And the servant brought out ornaments of silver, and ornaments of gold, and garments, and gave them to Riḇqah. He also gave costly gifts to her brother and to her mother. (Genesis 24:54)  And he and the men who were with him ate and drank and spent the night. When they arose in the morning he said, “Let me go to my master.” (Genesis 24:55)  But her brother and her mother said, “Let the young woman stay with us a few days, at least ten, then you go.” (Genesis 24:56)  And he said to them, “Do not delay me, since יהוה has prospered my way. Let me go so that I go to my master.” (Genesis 24:57)  And they said, “Let us call the young woman and ask her.” (Genesis 24:58)  So they called Riḇqah and said to her, “Are you going with this man?” And she said, “I shall go.” (Genesis 24:59)  So they let go Riḇqah their sister and her nurse, and Aḇraham’s servant and his men. (Genesis 24:60)  And they blessed Riḇqah and said to her, “Let our sister become the mother of thousands of ten thousands, and let your seed possess the gates of those who hate them.” (Genesis 24:61)  And Riḇqah and her young women arose, and they rode on the camels and followed the man. So the servant took Riḇqah and left. (Genesis 24:62)  And Yitsḥaq came from the way of Be’ĕr Laḥai Ro’i, for he dwelt in the South. (Genesis 24:63)  And Yitsḥaq went out to meditate in the field in the evening. And he lifted his eyes and looked and saw the camels coming. (Genesis 24:64)  And Riḇqah lifted her eyes, and when she saw Yitsḥaq she dismounted from her camel, (Genesis 24:65) and she had said to the servant, “Who is this man walking in the field to meet us?” And the servant said, “It is my master.” So she took a veil and covered herself. (Genesis 24:66)  And the servant told Yitsḥaq all the matters he had done.
Scriptural marriage
(Genesis 24:67)  And Yitsḥaq brought her into his mother Sarah’s tent. And he took Riḇqah and she became his wife, and he loved her. Thus Yitsḥaq was comforted after his mother’s death.
(Genesis 25:1)  And Aḇraham took another wife, whose name was Qeturah. (Genesis 25:2)  And she bore him Zimran, and Yoqshan, and Meḏan, and Miḏyan, and Yishbaq, and Shuwaḥ. (Genesis 25:3)  And Yoqshan brought forth Sheḇa and Deḏan. And the sons of Deḏan were Asshurim, and Letushim, and Le’ummim. (Genesis 25:4)  And the sons of Miḏyan were Ěphah, and Ěpher, and Ḥanoḵ, and Aḇiḏa, and Eldaʽah. All these were the children of Qeturah. (Genesis 25:5)  Now Aḇraham gave all that he had to Yitsḥaq, (Genesis 25:6)  but to the sons of the concubines whom Aḇraham had, Aḇraham gave gifts while he was still living, and sent them away from his son Yitsḥaq, eastward, to the land of the east. (Genesis 25:7)  And these are all the years of Aḇraham’s life which he lived: one hundred and seventy-five years. (Genesis 25:8)  And Aḇraham breathed his last and died in a good old age, aged and satisfied, and was gathered to his people. (Genesis 25:9)  And his sons Yitsḥaq and Yishmaʽĕl buried him in the cave of Maḵpĕlah, which is before Mamrĕ, in the field of Ephron son of Tsoḥar the Ḥittite, (Genesis 25:10) the field which Aḇraham purchased from the sons of Ḥĕth. There Aḇraham was buried with Sarah his wife. (Genesis 25:11)  And it came to be, after the death of Aḇraham, that Elohim blessed his son Yitsḥaq. And Yitsḥaq dwelt at Be’ĕr Laḥai Ro’i. (Genesis 25:12)  And this is the genealogy of Yishmaʽĕl, Aḇraham’s son, whom Haḡar the Mitsrite, Sarah’s female servant, bore to Aḇraham. (Genesis 25:13)  And these were the names of the sons of Yishmaʽĕl, by their names, according to their generations: The first-born of Yishmaʽĕl, Neḇayoth; then Qĕḏar, and Aḏbe’ĕl, and Miḇsam, (Genesis 25:14) and Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa, (Genesis 25:15) Haḏar, and Tĕma, Yetur, Naphish, and Qĕḏemah. (Genesis 25:16)  These were the sons of Yishmaʽĕl and these were their names, by their towns and their settlements, twelve chiefs according to their tribes. (Genesis 25:17)  And these were the years of the life of Yishmaʽĕl: one hundred and thirty-seven years. And he breathed his last and died, and was gathered to his people. (Genesis 25:18)  And they dwelt from Ḥawilah as far as Shur, which is east of Mitsrayim as you go toward Ashshur. He settled before all his brothers.
No marriage here as he knew her not
 (1 Kings 1:1)  And Sovereign Dawiḏ was old, advanced in years. And they covered him with garments, but he could not get warm. (1 Kings 1:2)  So his servants said to him, “Let them seek for our master the sovereign a young woman, a maiden, and she shall stand before the sovereign and be his companion, and shall lie in your bosom, so that our master the sovereign gets warm.” (1 Kings 1:3)  And they sought for a lovely young woman in all the border of Yisra’ĕl, and found Aḇishaḡ the Shunammite, and brought her to the sovereign. (1 Kings 1:4)  And the young woman was very lovely. And she was a companion for the sovereign, and served him, but the sovereign did not know her. (1 Kings 1:5)  And Aḏoniyah son of Ḥaggith exalted himself, saying, “I reign.” And he prepared for himself a chariot and horsemen, and fifty men to run before him. (1 Kings 1:6)  Now his father had not worried him at any time by saying, “Why have you done so?” He was also very good-looking. And he was born after Aḇshalom. (1 Kings 1:7)  And he talked with Yo’aḇ son of Tseruyah and with Eḇyathar the priest, and they supported Aḏoniyah. (1 Kings 1:8)  But Tsaḏoq the priest, and Benayahu son of Yehoyaḏa, and Nathan the prophet, and Shimʽi, and Rĕʽi, and the mighty men who belonged to Dawiḏ were not with Aḏoniyahu. (1 Kings 1:9)  And Aḏoniyahu offered sheep and cattle and fatlings by the stone of Zoḥeleth, which is by Ěn Roḡĕl. He also invited all his brothers, the sovereign’s sons, and all the men of Yehuḏah, servants of the sovereign. (1 Kings 1:10)  But he did not invite Nathan the prophet, or Benayahu, or the mighty men, or Shelomoh his brother. (1 Kings 1:11)  Nathan then spoke to Bathsheḇa the mother of Shelomoh, saying, “Have you not heard that Aḏoniyahu son of Ḥaggith has become sovereign, and Dawiḏ our master does not know it? (1 Kings 1:12)  “And now, come let me give you advice, and deliver your own life and the life of your son Shelomoh. (1 Kings 1:13)  “Go immediately to Sovereign Dawiḏ and say to him, ‘Did you not, my master, O sovereign, swear to your female servant, saying, “Certainly, your son Shelomoh shall reign after me, and he shall sit on my throne”? Why then has Aḏoniyahu become sovereign?’ (1 Kings 1:14)  “Look, while you are still speaking there with the sovereign let me come in after you and confirm your words.” (1 Kings 1:15)  And Bathsheḇa went into the room to the sovereign. Now the sovereign was very old, and Aḇishaḡ the Shunammite was serving the sovereign. (1 Kings 1:16)  And Bathsheḇa bowed and did obeisance to the sovereign. And the sovereign said, “What do you wish?” (1 Kings 1:17)  And she said to him, “My master, you swore by יהוה your Elohim to your female servant, saying, ‘Certainly, Shelomoh your son shall reign after me, and he shall sit on my throne.’ (1 Kings 1:18)  “And now, look! Aḏoniyah has become sovereign. And now, my master the sovereign, you do not know about it. (1 Kings 1:19)  “And he has offered great numbers of bulls and fatlings and sheep, and has invited all the sons of the sovereign, and Eḇyathar the priest, and Yo’aḇ the commander of the army, but he did not invite Shelomoh your servant. (1 Kings 1:20)  “And you my master, O sovereign, the eyes of all Yisra’ĕl are on you, to declare to them who is going to sit on the throne of my master the sovereign after him. (1 Kings 1:21)  “Otherwise it shall be, when my master the sovereign rests with his fathers, that I and my son Shelomoh shall be considered sinners.” (1 Kings 1:22)  And see, while she was still speaking with the sovereign, Nathan the prophet also came in. (1 Kings 1:23) so they informed the sovereign, saying, “Here is Nathan the prophet.” And when he came in before the sovereign, he bowed down before the sovereign with his face to the ground. (1 Kings 1:24)  And Nathan said, “My master, O sovereign, have you said, ‘Aḏoniyahu shall reign after me, and he shall sit on my throne’? (1 Kings 1:25)  “For he has gone down today, and has offered great numbers of bulls and fatlings and sheep, and has invited all the sovereign’s sons, and the commanders of the army, and Eḇyathar the priest. And look! They are eating and drinking before him. And they say, ‘Let Sovereign Aḏoniyahu live!’ (1 Kings 1:26)  “But he has not invited me, me your servant, or Tsaḏoq the priest, or Benayahu son of Yehoyaḏa, nor your servant Shelomoh. (1 Kings 1:27)  “If this matter is from my master the sovereign, then you did not let your servant know who should sit on the throne of my master the sovereign after him.” (1 Kings 1:28)  And Sovereign Dawiḏ answered and said, “Call Bathsheḇa to me.” So she came into the sovereign’s presence and stood before the sovereign. (1 Kings 1:29)  And the sovereign took an oath and said, “As יהוה lives, who has redeemed my life out of all distress, (1 Kings 1:30) even as I swore to you by יהוה Elohim of Yisra’ĕl, saying, ‘Certainly, Shelomoh your son shall reign after me, and he shall sit on my throne in my place,’ even so I do this day.” (1 Kings 1:31)  And Bathsheḇa bowed with her face to the earth, and did obeisance to the sovereign, and said, “Let my master Sovereign Dawiḏ live forever!” 
We are His incorruptible seed as we have been grafted into the Kingdom of Israel’s Covenant Promise by trusting and following YHWH! We are SPIRITUALLY reborn!
(1 Corinthians 15:50)  And this I say, brothers, that flesh and blood are unable to inherit the reign (Kingdom) of Elohim, neither does corruption inherit incorruption. (1 Corinthians 15:51)  See, I speak a secret to you: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, (1 Corinthians 15:52) in a moment, in twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. (1 Corinthians 15:53)  For this corruptible has to put on incorruption, and this mortal to put on immortality. (1 Corinthians 15:54)  And when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, and then shall come to be the word that has been written, “Death is swallowed up in overcoming.” (1 Corinthians 15:55)  “O Death, where is your sting? O grave, where is your overcoming?” (1 Corinthians 15:56)  And the sting of death is the sin, and the power of the sin is the Torah. (1 Corinthians 15:57)  But thanks to YHWH Elohim who gives us the overcoming (Victory) through our Master יהושע Messiah. (1 Corinthians 15:58)  Therefore, my beloved brothers, (and sisters!) be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the work of the Master, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Master.
Loved One, Here is my prayer for you and your loved ones as we each walk out our deliverance in fear and trembling which is a holy reverence and awe of our Mighty Elohim. I declare to you and over you loved one and I include the blood of THE LAMB over you- which the destroyer cannot penetrate-; (Ephesians 1:2) Favor to you and peace from Elohim our Father and the Master יהושע Messiah. (Ephesians 1:3)  Blessed be the Elohim and Father of our Master יהושע Messiah, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenlies in Messiah, (Ephesians 1:4)  even as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be set-apart and blameless before Him in love,1 Footnote: 12 Thess. 2:13. (Ephesians 1:5)  having previously ordained us to adoption as sons through יהושע Messiah to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His desire, (Ephesians 1:6)  to the praise of the esteem of His favor with which He favored us in the Beloved, (Ephesians 1:7)  in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of trespasses, according to the riches of His favor, (Ephesians 1:8)  which He has lavished on us in all wisdom and insight, (Ephesians 1:9)  having made known to us the secret of His desire, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Him, (Ephesians 1:10)  to administer at the completion of time, to gather together in one all in Messiah, both which are in the heavens and which are on earth, in Him, (Ephesians 1:11)  in whom also we did obtain an inheritance, being previously ordained according to the purpose of Him working all matters according to the counsel of His desire, (Ephesians 1:12)  for us to be the praise of His esteem – those having first trusted in Messiah, (Ephesians 1:13)  in whom you also, having heard the word of the truth, the Good News of your deliverance, in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Set-apart Spirit of promise, (Ephesians 1:14)  who is the pledge of our inheritance, until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His esteem. (Ephesians 1:15)  For this reason I too, having heard of your belief in the Master יהושע and your love for all the set-apart ones, (Ephesians 1:16)  do not cease giving thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers, (Ephesians 1:17)  that the Elohim of our Master יהושע Messiah, the Father of esteem, would give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, (Ephesians 1:18)  the eyes of your understanding1 being enlightened, so that you know what is the expectation of His calling, and what are the riches of the esteem (glory) of His inheritance in the set-apart ones, Footnote: 1Lk. 24:45. (Ephesians 1:19) and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who are believing, according to the working of His mighty strength, (Ephesians 1:20) which He wrought in the Messiah when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenlies, (Ephesians 1:21) far above all rule and authority and power and mastery, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. (Ephesians 1:22)  And He put all under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all, to the assembly, (Ephesians 1:23) which is His body, the completeness of Him who fills all in all.  I love this prayer as it puts hasatan under our feet and establishes in the heavenly realm who we really are! Thanks for your targeted prayers for me and my loved ones- you are much loved and they are our lifeline! Praise Him who made Heaven and Earth! Hallelu-YAH!
Shalom to your home loved one,

It 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.
