Shabbat Shalom Loved One!  
This study is attached for ease of print and study format. YHWH is drawing all to Himself- Hallelu-YAH!
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
Last week we discussed: The Global Reset or applied FIX? To our world’s Monetary System and how we need His power and wisdom to overcome! Today we will also review and then go to the only method He assures us and defines we will have power to be witnesses- and and removing unbelief as this allows us to produce real fruit that really remains! Remember the importance of not fearing and the provisions YHWH has made for us to be over comers! Last week we also considered the power of our words agreeing with Him and we also must realize that intimacy in worship brings His presence because He inhabits the praises of His people! All of us can WORSHIP!
I gave a short study on what I believe is the Monetary Reform or OVERHAUL for the world’s financial system. No more FIAT currencies. Please take note and be aware- this following was and is ONLY MY OPINION! We realize their purpose is not to bless believers with wealth- the plan of course is for hasatan, the ruler of this world, to move to a position of CONTROL.
Yes, he (hasatan) will eventually use digital currencies in the end to make uniform his ability to apply the mark of the beast to the world- where he can try and destroy all opposition, namely all believers. Obviously, Yahweh is way ahead of him as usual; and will use this changeover to equip sober and alert believers to benefit. Yes, those believers who hear and obey will benefit greatly, as the world constantly tells us not to fall for the scam of these Middle Eastern and Asian currencies (Such as the Iraqi Dinar, Iranian Rial, Vietnamese Dong) being revalued. How long will this new found wealth last? Not sure, but not likely over a few years- IMO, as believers will be tested for what’s in their hearts and how will they use this wealth?
Will it be used to promote themselves- or DO THE GOSPEL? What I taught last week is still solely my opinion. I wanted to share what I THINK I KNOW, because this reset worldwide revalues and devalues of currencies approved by the G-20 nations (The largest of the world’s economies), using the agreed G-20 formula for a country’s assets, IS UPON US. I expect many revalues such as the Iraqi Dinar could be as late as OCTOBER 1, 2016 (U.S. Governments fiscal year) IMO, and many of the currencies revalues will already be finished by June 30, 2016 IMO, the revalue will be based on asset wealth in a country, and will be in full swing in 2017- with more of the planned control via TPP and like mannered TRADE AGREEMENTS for all countries will allow the NEW WORLD ORDER (The wealth elite who march to hasatan- some unknowingly) will be in FULL CONTROL of the world’s economic systems. Next step will then come forth- MARK OF THE BEAST. So we have time perhaps- to make ourselves ready as His BRIDE and become the OVERCOMERS He has paid for!
Loved One- it is becoming clear that Jacob’s Trouble (Not the Jews only trouble-ALL Israel- especially us who claim being grafted in) is approaching all living on the earth.
QUESTION- What is it that you and I desire to accomplish in our time here on Planet Earth? Is it fame, wealth, pleasure, more toys and “stuff” or possibly something more lasting…say eternal? What is worthy of our life’s mission and accomplishment? Will we allow our lives to be broken and changed into His image by our own choice or will we soon be pulverized and destroyed leaving nothing- all our worldly accomplishments burned up leaving nothing but ash? Matthew 21:44 “And he who falls on this stone (The Word- Yahshua) shall be broken, 1 but on whomever it falls, he shall be pulverized.” Footnote: 1 Romans 8:10 & 13, Colossians 3:5.
(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.”
(Proverbs 18:21)  Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those loving it eat its fruit. Power comes when we totally submit and yield our spirits, souls, and bodies to our King- in word and action!
To him who overcomes (Comment: the intimate fellowship is only available 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.” ’ ” With understanding our need for the Helper and Comforter He has made available if we so choose to humble ourselves and our tongues and be the 5 virgins with power and provision (oil of His spirit).
Love calls….again this morning I was awakened by the Ruach to address some things for us- the “BODY” of Messiah. Some of us in fleeing religion and duty have scurried toward more duty and left relationship. It was like warning sirens were sounding and then Scriptures of reality were brought to mind to awaken and return us to our “FIRST LOVE”! The “TRAP” set by the enemy of our souls is DUTY or also known as religion- doing the works acceptable to our peers whether it is “Churchianity, Judaism, Torahkeeper”, etc. It becomes mote and not from our heart of relationship. I suspect our very hearts DESIRE is to move into more intimacy with our Creator!
Point one that blared at me; He reminded me of what He considers TRUE RELIGION.
(James 1:22)  And become doers of the Word, and not hearers only, 1 deceiving yourselves. Footnote: 1 See Matthew 7:24-27, Luke 6:46-49, Luke 8:21, Romans 2:13, Hebrews 4:11, Revelation. 22:14. (James 1:23) If anyone is a hearer of the Word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror, (James 1:24) for he looks at himself, and goes away, and immediately forgets what he was like. (James 1:25)  But he that looked into the perfect Torah, that of freedom, 1 and continues in it, not becoming a hearer that forgets, but a doer of work, this one shall be blessed in his doing of the Torah. Footnote: 1 See 2:12. (James 1:26)  If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is worthless.
(James 1:27)  Clean and undefiled religion (Pure) before the Elohim and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained (Unpolluted) from the world. The world is coming at us from every angle and culture worldwide- in CULTURALLY ACCEPTABLE WHOREDOMS.
So the first question posed to us- Is our personal relationship (religion) pure before the Father of Lights? Our Master will require a verdict shortly of each of us with the great trials and troubles He will allow on the earth. Our response should remind us of our need for recommitted DECISION; (Joshua 24:15)  “And if it seems evil in your eyes to serve יהוה, choose for yourselves this day whom you are going to serve, whether the mighty ones which your fathers served that were beyond the River, or the mighty ones of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But I and my house, we will serve יהוה.”
The second question posed for us is similar in that it addresses HOW we become DOERS of the Word walking in HIS power and not Hearers only deceiving ourselves. Here’s the Scripture we have not paid nearly enough attention to from His warning and for those among us who will not receive anything from Sha’ul (Paul)- I fear for you; Consider carefully about HIS POWER LOVED ONE- everything else will be a trap and leave you helpless (powerless) against hell’s plan. HERE IS THE SECOND SCRIPTURE HE AWAKENED ME WITH FOR US TODAY!
(2 Timothy 3:1)  But know this, that in the last days hard times shall come. (2 Timothy 3:2)  For men shall be lovers of self, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, thankless, wrong-doers, (2 Timothy 3:3)  unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, haters of good, (2 Timothy 3:4)  betrayers, reckless, puffed up, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of Elohim, (2 Timothy 3:5)  having a form of reverence1 (Godliness) but denying its power. And turn away from these! Footnote: 1See v. 13, Isaiah 24:5-6, Matthew 24:12, Romans 1:30-31, 2 Thessalonians 2:3-11. (2 Timothy 3:6)  For among them are those who creep into households and captivate silly women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, (2 Timothy 3:7) always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Are we walking in His power, praying in the Ruach (Unknown tongues) ad seeing and decreeing His miracle power against the forces of hell? Are we operating in the Ruach HaKodesh gifts for the benefit of OTHERS? We should be and this should be our pursuit and product of intimate relationship with our Messiah ad King- that we may SHE’MA O’ Israel- HEAR AND DO!
He’s been sending warnings with FISHERS for us- but next comes the HUNTERS. (Coming—hmm—maybe arrived already- but certainly soon to the countries of the world)
(Jeremiah 16:9)  For thus said יהוה of hosts, the Elohim of Yisra’ĕl, “See, before your eyes and in your days, I am making the voice of rejoicing and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride to cease in this place. (Jeremiah 16:10)  “And it shall be, when you declare to this people all these words, and they shall say to you, ‘Why has יהוה pronounced all this great evil against us? And what is our crookedness, and what is our sin that we have committed against יהוה our Elohim?’
(Jeremiah 16:11) then you shall say to them, ‘Because your fathers have forsaken me,’ declares יהוה, ‘and have walked after other mighty ones and served them and bowed themselves to them, and have forsaken me, and did not guard My Torah. (Jeremiah 16:12)  ‘And you have done more evil than your fathers, for look, each one walks according to the stubbornness of his own evil heart, without listening to me. (Jeremiah 16:13)  ‘So I shall throw you out of this land into a land that you do not know, neither you nor your fathers. And there you shall serve other mighty ones day and night, where I show you no favor.’
(Jeremiah 16:14)  “Therefore see, the days are coming,” declares יהוה, “when it is no longer said, ‘יהוה lives who brought up the children of Yisra’ĕl from the land of Mitsrayim,’ (Jeremiah 16:15) but, ‘יהוה lives who brought up the children of Yisra’ĕl from the land of the north and from all the lands where He had driven them.’ For I shall bring them back into their land I gave to their fathers. (Jeremiah 16:16)  “See, I am sending for many fishermen,” declares יהוה, “and they shall fish them. And after that I shall send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain and every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.
(Jeremiah 16:17)  “For my eyes are on all their ways; they have not been hidden from my face, nor has their crookedness been hidden from my eyes. (Jeremiah 16:18)  “And first I shall repay double for their crookedness and their sin, because they have defiled my land with the dead bodies of their disgusting matters, and have filled my inheritance with their abominations.” (Jeremiah 16:19)  O יהוה, my strength and my stronghold and my refuge, in the day of distress the gentiles shall come to you from the ends of the earth and say, Our fathers have inherited only falsehood, (lies) futility, and there is no value in them.”1 Footnote: 1See Psalms 147:19, Isaiah 2:3, Isaiah. 60:2-3, John 4:22, Romans 2:20, Romans 3:2, Romans 9:4. (Jeremiah 16:20)  Would a man make mighty ones for himself, which are not mighty ones?
(Jeremiah 16:21)  “Therefore see, I am causing them to know, this time I cause them to know my hand and my might. And they shall know that My Name is יהוה!”
I am praying the following link is a true prophecy---allowing us merciful time to draw many closer---one thing is certain- we will soon know- and WE MUST BE ABOUT OUR FATHER’S BUSINESS WITH ALL DILIGENCE!
OUR KING IS SITTING ON THE THRONE!  (Revelation 3:10)  'Because you have kept the word of my perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, (Comment: not a pre-tribulation rapture- but His assurance and protection through the storms) that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. (Revelation 3:11)  'I am coming quickly; hold fast what you have, so that no one will take your crown. (Revelation 3:12)  'He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my Elohim, and he will not go out from it anymore; and I will write on him the name of my Elohim, and the name of the city of my Elohim, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from my Elohim, and my new name. (Revelation 3:13)  'He, who has an ear, let him hear what the Ruach HaKodesh says to the assemblies.' (This is not a pre-tribulation rapture, He promises to protect and use us even in the fiery furnace- so let’s be usable!) Loved One, who are we really? Were we really born for such a time as this? Is this really the “End of the Age”?  These questions are being answered by unfolding events and by our testimony- that is what we say and what we do about these unfolding events.  We shall overcome by the Blood of the Lamb of YHWH and our Testimony or not overcome at all. All Creation is groaning for the sons and daughters of YHWH to manifest. Seems we will be tried by fire to see if we will walk by His Ruach (Spirit) or not.
Why is it so important that you and I overcome our fears, unbelief and trials?
(Revelation 21:7)  He that overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his Elohim, and he shall be my son. (Revelation 21:8)  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
We are not under condemnation Loved One- hasatan alone is condemned and he purposes to put on us- the death and condemnation pronounced on him…
Are we fearful? YHWH did not give us a spirit of fear… (2 Timothy 1:7)  For Elohim has not given us a spirit of cowardice (Fear), but of power and of love and of self-control (Sound mind).
We must clean up and make ourselves ready as His BRIDE and allow Him to make us who were once DRY BONES to become the restored! We cannot follow those of various religious systems who are described here as this sounds a lot like modern Churchianity: (Ezekiel 22:26) "Her priests have done violence to my law (Torah/Instructions) and have profaned my holy things; they have made no distinction between the holy and the profane, and they have not taught the difference between the unclean and the clean; and they hide their eyes from my Sabbaths, and I am profaned among them.” (He said MY Sabbaths- seems we can’t pick our own)
Why are these days so critical and we must truly repent in sackcloth and ashes so to speak? I believe we are in the last days Laodicean age that Yahshua warned us about:
(Revelation 3:14) "To the angel of the assembly in Laodicea write: The Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Beginning of the creation of YHWH, says this: (Revelation 3:15) 'I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. (Revelation 3:16)  'Because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold; I’ll spit you out of my mouth. (Vomit) (Revelation 3:17)  'Because you say, "I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing," and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked, (Revelation 3:18)  I advise you to buy from me gold refined by fire (faith-believing- which is true riches) so that you may become rich, and white garments (Pure and undefiled robes of righteousness) so that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed; and eye salve (spiritual eyes opened) to anoint your eyes so that you may see. (Revelation 3:19)  'Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline; therefore be zealous and repent. (Revelation 3:20)  'Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with me. (Revelation 3:21)  'He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with me on my throne, as I also overcame and sat down with my Father on His throne.
Good News Truth Seeker! Time to ARISE AND AWAKEN!
It is our destiny to seek Him with all our hearts, soul, and body and walk in His glory realm; His mercy, compassion, provision, protection and power! (Jeremiah 29:11)  ‘For I know the plans I am planning for you,’ declares יהוה, ‘plans of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and expectancy. (Jeremiah 29:12)  ‘Then you shall call on me, and shall come and pray to me, and I shall listen to you. (Jeremiah 29:13)  ‘And you shall seek me, and shall find me, when you search for me with all your heart1. Footnote: 1 Deuteronomy 4:29, Joel 2:12. (Jeremiah 29:14)  ‘And I shall be found by you,’ declares יהוה, ‘and I shall turn back your captivity, and shall gather you from all the gentiles and from all the places where I have driven you, declares יהוה. And I shall bring you back to the place from which I have exiled you.’  (Genesis 13:17)  "Arise, walk about the land through its length and breadth; for I will give it to you." (Ephesians 5:14)  That is why He says, “Arise, wake up you who sleep, and arise from the dead, and Messiah shall shine on you.” (Isaiah 60:1)  “Arise and shine, for your light has come! And the esteem (glory) of יהוה has risen upon you.
Last week we also looked again at YHWH’s POWER TWINS for overcoming fear and the schemes of our enemy. Again, remember all things are possible for YHWH, the only reason they are not possible for you and I is our UNBELIEF! I cannot share this too much with you loved ones!
Unbelief or belief is the real TOPIC in the following Scriptures spoken by Messiah Yahshua! What gets rid of our unbelief? PRAYER AND FASTING according to Yahshua! Let’s look closer at why we can believe that statement: (Mark 9:16) And He asked them, "What are you discussing with them?" (Mark 9:17)  And one of the crowd answered Him, "Teacher, I brought You my son, possessed with a spirit which makes him mute; (Mark 9:18)  and whenever it seizes him, it slams him to the ground and he foams at the mouth, and grinds his teeth and stiffens out. I told your disciples to cast it out, and they could not do it." (Mark 9:19)  And He *answered them 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)  They brought the boy to Him. When he saw Him, immediately the spirit threw him into a convulsion, and falling to the ground, he began rolling around and foaming at the mouth. (Mark 9:21)  And He asked his father, "How long has this been happening to him?" And he said, "From childhood.
(Mark 9:22)  "It has often thrown him both into the fire and into the water to destroy him. But if you can do anything, take pity on us and help us!" (Mark 9:23)  And Yahshua said to him, “‘if you can?' All things are possible to him who believes."  (Mark 9:24)  Immediately the boy's father cried out and said, "I do believe; help my unbelief.(Mark 9:25)  When Yahshua saw that a crowd was rapidly gathering, He rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, "You deaf and mute spirit, I command you, come out of him and do not enter him again." (Mark 9:26)  After crying out and throwing him into terrible convulsions, it came out; and the boy became so much like a corpse that most of them said, "He is dead!" (Mark 9:27)  But Yahshua took him by the hand and raised him; and he got up. (Mark 9:28)  When He came into the house, His disciples began questioning Him privately, "Why could we not drive it out?" (Looking in Matthew) (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.”
I have mentioned many times- the topic is not some great demon, even the head of all demons must bow to the name. The problem and topic here is unbelief. We get rid of unbelief by prayer and fasting! Prayer AND Fasting, not prayer without fasting or fasting without prayer- If we really want our prayers answered we must be willing to do YHWH’s requirements. If we really care about our loved ones we will seek YHWH’s face with prayer and fasting and quit worrying…Yahshua promises in Revelation to throw the fearful (worriers) into hell with the adulterers, murderers etc. Why? Because, if that is who we become under great fiery trials we have trusted the power of hasatan to do us harm, more than the power of YHWH to deliver us! Could this apply to you and me?  NOT IF we pray and fast and overcome! So let’s be busy about our Father’s business and do it!  Remember; Yahshua’s instructions are Hebraic or Hebrew thought. It is not about mental assent like Greek thought. It is about being a doer of the word and not a hearer only deceiving ourselves. It is She’mah O’ Israel or HEAR AND OBEYLet’s learn to fast and pray and remove our unbelief!
With those precepts in place in our thinking; we turn our hearts and minds to learn- as we study His Torah cycle or ancient path each week that we are returning to. (Psalms 119:105) Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. (Isaiah 58:12)  And they that shall be of you shall build the old waste places: you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in. (Isaiah 58:13)  If you turn away your foot from the Sabbath, from doing your pleasure on my holy day; and call the Sabbath a delight, the holy of YHWH, honorable; and shall honor him, not doing your own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking your own words: (Isaiah 58:14)  Then you shall delight yourself in YHWH; and I will cause you to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed you with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of YHWH has spoken it.
That was much reviewing but critical to our restoration and the walk of His power!
What else does Yahshua say about these matters and times? (Luke 21:11)  And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. (Luke 21:12)  But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake. (Luke 21:13)  And it shall turn to you for a testimony. (Luke 21:14)  Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what you shall answer: (Luke 21:15) I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist. (Luke 21:16)  And you shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death. (Luke 21:17)  And you shall be hated of all men for my name's sake. (Luke 21:18)  But there shall not a hair of your head perish. (Luke 21:19)  In your patience possess you your souls. (Luke 21:20)  And when you shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, and then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. (Luke 21:21)  Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter there. (Luke 21:22)  For these are the Days of Vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. (Luke 21:23)  But woes unto them that are with child and to them that give suck, in those days! There shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. (Luke 21:24)  And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles (Goyim-heathen), until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. (Luke 21:25) 
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; (Luke 21:26)  Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. (Luke 21:27)  And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. (Luke 21:28)  And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws nigh. (Luke 21:29)  And he spoke to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; (Luke 21:30) When they now shoot forth, you see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. (Luke 21:31)  So likewise you, when you see these things come to pass, know you that the Kingdom of YHWH is nigh at hand. (Luke 21:32)  Verily I say unto you, this generation shall not pass away, till all is fulfilled. (What generation? The generation that sees these things start and then come to pass!) (Luke 21:33)  Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. (Luke 21:34)  And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. (Luke 21:35)  As a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. (Luke 21:36)  You watch you therefore and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. Of course the goal would be to stand unashamed before Yahshua having produced fruit with Him that will remain!
Our Words really do direct us! Start today hiding the Word of YHWH in your heart-memorize some Scripture daily!
(Matthew 12:30) “He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters abroad. (Matthew 12:31)   “Because of this I say to you, all sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit shall not be forgiven men. (Matthew 12:32) “And whoever speaks a word against the Son of Aḏam, it shall be forgiven him, but whoever speaks against the Set-apart Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come. (Matthew 12:32) “And whoever speaks a word against the Son of Aḏam, it shall be forgiven him, but whoever speaks against the Set-apart Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come. (Matthew 12:33)  “Either make the tree good and its fruit well, or else make the tree rotten and its fruit rotten, for a tree is known by its fruit. (Matthew 12:34)   “You brood of adders! How are you able to speak what is good – being wicked? For the mouth speaks from the overflow of the heart. (Matthew 12:35) “The good man brings forth what is good from the good treasures of his heart, and the wicked man brings forth what is wicked from the wicked treasure. (Matthew 12:36) “And I say to you that for every idle (careless) word men speak, they shall give an account of it in the Day of Judgment. (Matthew 12:37) For by your words you shall be declared righteous, and by your words you shall be declared unrighteous (condemned).
If no man (male or female) can tame the tongue, which yields our direction similar to a bridle on a horse or a rudder on a ship; how then can our tongue be tamed? Too many “teachers” putting down others and building their own kingdoms- which of course will be burned with fire!
(Proverbs 18:21) Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those loving it eat its fruit.
(James 3:1)  Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, knowing that we shall receive greater judgment. (James 3:2)  For we all stumble in many matters. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect (mature) man, able also to bridle the entire body. (James 3:3)  Look, we put bits in the mouths of horses, for them to obey us, and we turn their body. (James 3:4)  Look at the ships too: although they are so big and are driven by strong winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot intends. (James 3:5)  So too the tongue is a little member, yet boasts greatly. See how a little fire kindles a great forest! (James 3:6)  And the tongue is a fire, the world of unrighteousness. Among our members the tongue is set, the one defiling the entire body, and setting on fire the wheel of life, and it is set on fire by Gehenna. (James 3:7)  For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind. (James 3:8)  But no man is able to tame the tongue. It is unruly, evil, filled with deadly poison. (James 3:9)  With it we bless our Elohim and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the likeness of Elohim. (James 3:10)  Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brothers, this should not be so. (James 3:11)  Does the fountain send forth the sweet and the bitter from the same opening? (James 3:12)  My brothers, is a fig tree able to bear olives, or a grapevine figs? Neither is a fountain able to make salt and sweet water. (James 3:13)  Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by his good behavior his works in meekness of wisdom. (James 3:14)  But if you have bitter jealousy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast against and lie against the truth. (James 3:15)  This is not the wisdom coming down from above, but it is earthly, unspiritual, and demonic. (James 3:16)  For where jealousy and self-seeking are, there is confusion and every foul deed. (James 3:17)  But the wisdom from above is first clean, then peaceable, gentle, ready to obey, filled with compassion and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.
Yahshua (Jesus) is the Baptizer in the Holy- Set Apart Spirit and Fire and The Righteous Judge with the axe! We need His power and His baptizing us in His Spirit to overcome and be real witnesses for His Kingdom and that is the KING’S DOMAIN! We must consider carefully and not reject the Ruach- you and I will lose much if we do.
(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 (Yah Channan- Yah’s mercy or John) immerse (baptize) 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 (baptize) you in the Set-apart Spirit and fire. (Yahshua!)
If no man can tame his tongue; then it would seem obvious that only...Only…ONLY by us yielding our tongues to Yahshua will they be tamed and directed! That is why He warned us: (Luke 11:11) “And what father among you whose son asks for bread shall give him a stone, or if he asks for a fish shall give him a snake instead of a fish, (Luke 11:12) or if he asks for an egg shall give him a scorpion? (Comment: snakes and scorpions are indicative of the demonic realm He gave us power over in Luke 10:19) (Luke 11:13)  “If you then, being wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your Father from heaven give the Set-apart Spirit (Holy Spirit) to those asking Him!”
What Yahshua is hinting and teaching about is that we will need to trust Him and receive His Spirit baptism and yes, thank YHWH, a prayer language in unknown tongues that no man understands as we offer mysteries (questions) that YHWH alone understands. (1 Corinthians 14:2)  For he that speaks in an unknown tongue speaks not unto men, but unto YHWH: for no man understands him; howbeit in the spirit he speaks mysteries. (1 Corinthians 14:14)  For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruitful. (1 Corinthians 14:15)  What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.
Summarizing: Yahweh knew we could produce no fruit that would remain on our own—at least against the powers of the wicked one and his minions- so we must humble ourselves- remove our pride and distrust and submit our tongues to Him-
No snakes or scorpions (Demonic realm) are given those that trust in our loving Heavenly Father
Luke 11:11 If a son asks for bread from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? Luke 11:12 Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? Luke 11:13 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!"
Okay- back to our point and our need
(John 15:5)  I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abides in me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit: for without me you can do nothing. (John 15:6)  If a man abides not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. (John 15:7)  If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, you shall ask what you will, and it shall be done unto you. (John 15:8)  Herein is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit; so shall you be my disciples. (John 15:9)  As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue you in my love. (John 15:10)  If you keep my commandments, you shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in His love.  John 15:16 You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever you shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. 
Knowing that we will produce no fruit that remains on our own, He provided a method for us to walk in His “overcoming” power and His Spirit- He only requires that we trust Him and yield our tongues (Direction like a bridle on a horse or a rudder on a ship) (Acts 1:8)  But you shall receive power, after that the Set Apart Spirit (Holy Spirit) is come upon you: and you shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
ALL ALL ALL --Then immediately after this they all received a prayer language in Acts 2:4! Listen Loved One, do not think you or I will produce ANY fruit that will remain apart from His Holy Spirit directing you- don’t be prideful. We SUBMIT (Humble ourselves) to YHWH and the devil will flee- If we don’t submit our tongues; hasatan will continue to dominate us. Hint: they spoke as the Spirit gave utterance- you will have to open your mouth to speak if or most likely when- you ask Yahshua to give you a supernatural prayer language and baptize you in His Spirit. Since you are already one of the 10 virgins (born again spiritually) seems natural intelligence to become of the 5 virgins who have enough oil (power) to enter the Wedding Feast. Yield and hunger for His help and righteousness TODAY while He may be found and watch the devil flee as you are FILLED! Whoever hungers and thirsts for righteousness WILL BE FILLED! Get HUNGRY for Him!
Here’s the picture warning from Yahshua of us last day’s Assembly of believer’s and why we MUST have His power!
(Revelation 3:14)  “And to the messenger of the assembly in Laodicea write, ‘The Amĕn, the Trustworthy and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of Elohim, 1 says this: Footnote: 1 Colossians 1:15, Hebrew 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 (Comment- faith and trust comes through fiery trials) in the fire, 1 so that you become rich; and white garments, so that you become dressed, so that the shame of your nakedness might not be shown; and anoint your eyes with ointment, so that you see. (Most of us have been blinded by the god of this world and are taken captive to do his will; yielding our free will to hasatan due to our own disobedience of His commands- Torah- Instructions- which 1 John defines as SIN!) Footnote:  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 (Comment: the fellowship is only available 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.” ’ ” With understanding our need for the Helper and Comforter He has made available if we so choose to humble ourselves and our tongues and be the 5 virgins with power and provision (oil of His spirit); we turn to this week’s Torah portion- Shalom!
This week’s Torah Scriptures: Vayeshev “And He Settled”
Genesis 37:1- 40:23; Amos 2:6-3:8; Zechariah 2:14- 4:7; Acts 7: 9-16

Sometimes we want to share our prophetic dreams, visions revelations and understandings; it usually brings hasatan and his evil forces to block YHWH’s plans and strategies temporarily! (Meaning WAR-
That means we will Walk/Stand by faith and trust or be taken captive or destroyed in battle)
(Genesis 37:1)  And Yaʽaqoḇ dwelt in the land of his father’s sojourning, in the land of Kenaʽan. (Genesis 37:2) this is the genealogy of Yaʽaqoḇ. Yosĕph, being seventeen years old, was feeding the flock with his brothers. And the young man was with the sons of Bilhah and the sons of Zilpah, his father’s wives. And Yosĕph brought an evil report of them to his father. (Genesis 37:3)  And Yisra’ĕl loved Yosĕph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age. And he made him a long robe. (Genesis 37:4)  But when his brothers saw that their father loved him more than all his brothers, they hated him and were not able to speak peaceably to him. (Genesis 37:5)  And Yosĕph dreamed a dream, and told it to his brothers. So they hated him even more. (Genesis 37:6)  And he said to them, “Please listen to this dream which I have dreamed: (Genesis 37:7)  “See, we were binding sheaves in the midst of the field, and see, my sheaf rose up and also stood up. And see, your sheaves stood all around and bowed down to my sheaf.” (Genesis 37:8)  And his brothers said to him, “Shall you indeed reign over us? Shall you indeed rule over us?” So they hated him even more for his dreams and for his words. (Genesis 37:9)  And he dreamed still another dream and related it to his brothers, and said, “See, I have dreamed another dream, and see, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars bowed down to me.” (Genesis 37:10)  And he related it to his father and his brothers. And his father rebuked him and said to him, “What is this dream that you have dreamed? Shall we, your mother and I and your brothers, indeed come to bow down to the earth before you?” (Genesis 37:11)  And his brothers envied him, but his father guarded the word. (Genesis 37:12)  And his brothers went to feed their father’s flock in Sheḵem. (Genesis 37:13)  And Yisra’ĕl said to Yosĕph, “Are not your brothers feeding the flock in Sheḵem? Come, I send you to them.” So he said to him, “Here I am.” (Genesis 37:14)  And he said to him, “Please go and see if it is well with your brothers and well with the sheep, and bring back word to me.” So he sent him out of the Valley of Ḥeḇron, and he went to Sheḵem. (Genesis 37:15)  And a certain man found him, and see, he was wandering in the field. And the man asked him, saying, “What do you seek?” (Genesis 37:16)  And he said, “I am seeking my brothers. Please inform me where they are feeding their sheep.” (Genesis 37:17)  And the man said, “They have left here, for I heard them say, ‘Let us go towards Dothan.’ ” So Yosĕph went after his brothers and found them in Dothan. (Genesis 37:18)  And they saw him from a distance, and before he came near them, they plotted against him, to kill him. (Genesis 37:19)  And they said to each other, “See, this master of dreams is coming! (Genesis 37:20)  “Now, then, come and let us now kill him and throw him into some pit, and shall say, ‘Some wild beast has devoured him.’ Let us then see what comes of his dreams!”
One Torah keeper- follower of Yahweh among them who would not shed innocent blood!
(Genesis 37:21)  But Re’uḇĕn heard and rescued him from their hands, and said, “Let us not take his life.” (Genesis 37:22)  And Re’uḇĕn said to them, “Shed no blood. Throw him into this pit which is in the wilderness, and do not lay a hand on him” – in order to rescue him out of their hands, and bring him back to his father. (Genesis 37:23)  So it came to be, when Yosĕph had come to his brothers, that they stripped Yosĕph of his robe, the long robe which was on him. (Genesis 37:24)  And they took him and threw him into a pit. And the pit was empty; there was no water in it. (Genesis 37:25)  And they sat down to eat a meal. And they lifted their eyes and looked and saw a company of Yishmaʽĕlites, coming from Gilʽaḏ with their camels, bearing spices, and balm, and myrrh, and going to take them down to Mitsrayim. (Genesis 37:26)  And Yehuḏah said to his brothers, “What would we gain if we kill our brother and conceal his blood? (Genesis 37:27)  “Come and let us sell him to the Yishmaʽĕlites, and let not our hand be upon him, for he is our brother, our flesh.” And his brothers listened. (Genesis 37:28)  And men, Miḏyanite traders passed by, so they pulled Yosĕph up and lifted him out of the pit, and sold him to the Yishmaʽĕlites for twenty pieces of silver. And they took Yosĕph to Mitsrayim. (Genesis 37:29)  And Re’uḇĕn returned to the pit, and see, Yosĕph was not in the pit. And he tore his garments. (Genesis 37:30)  And he returned to his brothers and said, “The boy is gone! And I, where am I to go?” (Genesis 37:31)  So they took Yosĕph’s robe, killed a male goat, and dipped the robe in the blood, (Genesis 37:32) and sent the long robe and brought it to their father and said, “We have found this. Please look, is it the robe of your son or not?” (Genesis 37:33)  And he recognized it and said, “It is my son’s robe. An evil beast has devoured him. Yosĕph is torn, torn to pieces.” (Genesis 37:34)  And Yaʽaqoḇ tore his garments, and put sackcloth on his waist, and mourned for his son many days. (Genesis 37:35)  And all his sons and all his daughters arose to comfort him, but he refused to be comforted, and he said, “Now let me go down into the grave to my son in mourning.” So his father wept for him. (Genesis 37:36)  And the Miḏanites had sold him in Mitsrayim to Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh and captain of the guard.
Note how easy it is for us to judge others and not so easy to judge ourselves righteously
(Genesis 38:1)  And at that time it came to be that Yehuḏah left his brothers, and turned aside to a man, an Aḏullamite whose name was Ḥirah. (Genesis 38:2)  And Yehuḏah saw there a daughter of a certain Kenaʽanite whose name was Shuwa. And he took her and went in to her. (Genesis 38:3)  So she conceived and bore a son, and he called his name Ěr. (Genesis 38:4) and she conceived again and bore a son, and she called his name Onan. (Genesis 38:5)  And she conceived yet again and bore a son, and called his name Shĕlah. And he was at Keziḇ when she bore him. (Genesis 38:6)  And Yehuḏah took a wife for Ěr his first-born, and her name was Tamar. (Genesis 38:7)  But Ěr, Yehuḏah’s first-born, was evil in the eyes of יהוה, and יהוה took his life. (Genesis 38:8)  And Yehuḏah said to Onan, “Go in to your brother’s wife and marry her, and rise up an heir to your brother.” (Genesis 38:9)  And Onan knew that the offspring would not be his. And it came to be, when he went in to his brother’s wife that he spilled on the ground, lest he should give an offspring to his brother. (Genesis 38:10)  But what he did displeased יהוה, so He took his life too. (Genesis 38:11)  Then Yehuḏah said to Tamar his daughter-in-law, “Remain a widow in your father’s house until my son Shĕlah is grown.” He said, “Lest he also die as his brothers did.” And Tamar went and dwelt in her father’s house. (Genesis 38:12)  And after a long time the daughter of Shuwa, Yehuḏah’s wife, died. And Yehuḏah was comforted, and went up to his sheep-shearers at Timnah, he and his friend Ḥirah the Aḏullamite. (Genesis 38:13)  And it was reported to Tamar, saying, “See, your father-in-law is going up to Timnah to shear his sheep.” (Genesis 38:14)  And she took off her widow’s garments, and covered herself with a veil and wrapped herself, and sat at the entrance to Ěnayim which was on the way to Timnah. For she saw that Shĕlah was grown, and she was not given to him as a wife. (Genesis 38:15)  And Yehuḏah saw her, and reckoned her for a whore, for she had covered her face. (Genesis 38:16)  And he turned aside to her by the way, and said, “Please let me come in to you,” for he did not know that she was his daughter-in-law. And she said, “What do you give me to come in to me?” (Genesis 38:17)  And he said, “Let me send you a young goat from the flock.” And she said, “Do you give me a pledge until you send it?” (Genesis 38:18)  So he said, “What pledge should I give you?” And she said, “Your seal and your cord and your staff that is in your hand.” And he gave them to her, and went in to her, and she conceived by him. (Genesis 38:19)  And she arose and went away, and removed her veil and put on the garments of her widowhood. (Genesis 38:20)  And Yehuḏah sent the young goat by the hand of his friend the Aḏullamite, to receive his pledge from the woman’s hand, but he did not find her. (Genesis 38:21)  And he asked the men of that place, saying, “Where is the cult prostitute who was beside the way to Ěnayim?” And they said, “There was no cult prostitute in this place.” (Genesis 38:22)  And he returned to Yehuḏah and said, “I have not found her. And the men of the place also said there was no cult prostitute in this place.” (Genesis 38:23)  And Yehuḏah said, “Let her take them for herself, lest we become despised, for I sent this young goat and you have not found her.” (Genesis 38:24)  And it came to be, about three months after that Yehuḏah was informed, saying, “Tamar your daughter-in-law has whored, and see, she has conceived by whoring.” And Yehuḏah said, “Bring her out and let her be burned!” (Genesis 38:25)  When she was brought out, she sent to her father-in-law, saying, “By the man to whom these belong, I am pregnant.” And she said, “Please examine whose these are: the seal and the cord and the staff.” (Genesis 38:26)  And Yehuḏah examined and said, “She has been more righteous than I, because I did not give her to Shĕlah my son.” And he never knew her again. (Genesis 38:27)  And it came to be, at the time for giving birth that see, twins were in her womb. (Genesis 38:28)  And it came to be, when she was giving birth, that the one put out his hand. And the midwife took a scarlet thread and bound it on his hand, saying, “This one came out first.” (Genesis 38:29)  And it came to be, as he drew back his hand that see, his brother came out! And she said, “How did you break through? This breach be upon you!” So his name was called Perets. (Genesis 38:30)  And afterward his brother came out who had the scarlet thread on his hand. So his name was called Zeraḥ.
Sexual fornication and immorality is a tool hasatan will use against us to test who we are also! We MUST guard our eye-gates and ear-gates- remember the eyes are windows to our souls.
(Genesis 39:1)  And Yosĕph had been taken down to Mitsrayim. And Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, captain of the guard, a Mitsrite, bought him from the Yishmaʽĕlites who had taken him down there. (Genesis 39:2)  And it came to be that יהוה was with Yosĕph, and he became a prosperous man, and was in the house of his master the Mitsrite. (Genesis 39:3)  And his master saw that יהוה was with him and that יהוה made all he did to prosper in his hand. (Genesis 39:4)  So Yosĕph found favor in his eyes, and served him, and he appointed him over his house, and gave into his hand all that he had. (Genesis 39:5)  And it came to be, from the time that he appointed him over his house and all that he had, that יהוה blessed the Mitsrite’s house for Yosĕph’s sake. And the blessing of יהוה was on all that he had in the house and in the field. (Genesis 39:6)  And he left in Yosĕph’s hand all that he had, and he did not know what he had except for the bread which he ate. And Yosĕph was handsome in form and appearance. (Genesis 39:7)  And after these events it came to be that his master’s wife lifted up her eyes to Yosĕph and said, “Lie with me.” (Genesis 39:8)  But he refused and said to his master’s wife, “Look, my master does not know what is with me in the house, and he has given into my hand all that he has. (Genesis 39:9)  “No one is greater in this house than I, and he has not withheld whatever from me but you, because you are his wife. And how shall I do this great evil and sin against Elohim?” (Genesis 39:10)  And it came to be, as she spoke to Yosĕph day by day, that he did not listen to her, to lie with her, to be with her. (Genesis 39:11)  And it came to be on a certain day, when Yosĕph went into the house to do his work, and none of the men of the house was inside, (Genesis 39:12)  that she caught him by his garment, saying, “Lie with me.” But he left his garment in her hand, and fled and ran outside. (Genesis 39:13)  And it came to be, when she saw that he had left his garment in her hand and fled outside, (Genesis 39:14)  that she called to the men of her house and spoke to them, saying, “See, he has brought in to us a Heḇrew to mock us. He came in to me to lie with me, and I cried out with a loud voice. (Genesis 39:15)  “And it came to be, when he heard that I lifted my voice and cried out, that he left his garment with me, and fled and went outside.” (Genesis 39:16)  And she kept his garment with her until his master came home. (Genesis 39:17)  And she spoke to him these same words, saying, “The Heḇrew servant whom you brought to us came in to me, to mock me, (Genesis 39:18)  so it came to be, as I lifted my voice and cried out, that he left his garment with me and fled outside.” (Genesis 39:19)  And it came to be, when his master heard the words which his wife spoke to him, saying, “Your servant did to me according to these words,” that his displeasure burned. (Genesis 39:20)  Then Yosĕph’s master took him and put him into the prison, a place where the sovereign’s prisoners were confined. And he was there in the prison. (Genesis 39:21)  But יהוה was with Yosĕph and extended kindness to him, and He gave him favor in the eyes of the prison warden. (Genesis 39:22)  And the prison warden gave into the hand of Yosĕph all the prisoners who were in the prison, and whatever was done there was his doing. (Genesis 39:23)  The prison warden did not look into any point that was under Yosĕph’s hand, because יהוה was with him. And whatever he did, יהוה made it prosper.
After great fiery trials and character development- we also will be promoted with YHWH’s wisdom!
(Genesis 40:1)  And after these events it came to be that the cupbearer and the baker of the sovereign of Mitsrayim sinned against their master, the sovereign of Mitsrayim. (Genesis 40:2)  And Pharaoh was wroth with his two officers, the chief cupbearer and the chief baker. (Genesis 40:3)  So he put them in confinement in the house of the captain of the guard, in the prison, the place where Yosĕph was a prisoner. (Genesis 40:4)  And the captain of the guard put Yosĕph in charge of them, and he served them. So they were in confinement for some time. (Genesis 40:5)  Then the cupbearer and the baker of the sovereign of Mitsrayim, who were confined in the prison, dreamed a dream, both of them, each man’s dream in one night and each man’s dream with its own interpretation. (Genesis 40:6)  And Yosĕph came in to them in the morning and looked at them and saw that they were sad. (Genesis 40:7)  And he asked Pharaoh’s officers who were with him in confinement of his master’s house, saying, “Why do you look so sad today?” (Genesis 40:8)  And they said to him, “We each have dreamed a dream, and there is no one to interpret it.” And Yosĕph said to them, “Do not interpretations belong to Elohim? Relate them to me, please.” (Genesis 40:9)  So the chief cupbearer related his dream to Yosĕph, and said to him, “See, in my dream a vine was before me, (Genesis 40:10) and in the vine were three branches, and it was as though it budded – its blossoms shot forth, and its clusters brought forth ripe grapes. (Genesis 40:11)  “And Pharaoh’s cup was in my hand. So I took the grapes and pressed them into Pharaoh’s cup, and placed the cup in Pharaoh’s hand.” (Genesis 40:12)  And Yosĕph said to him, “This is the interpretation of it: The three branches are three days. (Genesis 40:13)  “Yet, within three days Pharaoh is going to lift up your head and restore you to your place, and you shall put Pharaoh’s cup in his hand according to the former ruling, when you were his cupbearer. (Genesis 40:14)  “But remember me when it is well with you, and please show kindness to me. And mention me to Pharaoh, and get me out of this house. (Genesis 40:15)  “Truly I was stolen away from the land of the Hebrews.  And also I have done naught that they should put me into the dungeon.” (Genesis 40:16)  And the chief baker saw that the interpretation was good, and he said to Yosĕph, “I also was in my dream and saw three white baskets were on my head, (Genesis 40:17) and in the uppermost basket all kinds of baked goods for Pharaoh, and the birds ate them out of the basket on my head.” (Genesis 40:18)  And Yosĕph answered and said, “This is the interpretation of it: The three baskets are three days. (Genesis 40:19)  “Yet, within three days Pharaoh is going to lift off your head from you and hang you on a tree. And the birds shall eat your flesh from you.” (Genesis 40:20)  And on the third day, Pharaoh’s birthday, it came to be that he made a feast for all his servants. And he lifted up the head of the chief cupbearer and of the chief baker among his servants, (Genesis 40:21) and he restored the chief cupbearer to his post of cupbearer again, and he placed the cup in Pharaoh’s hand, (Genesis 40:22) but he hanged the chief baker, as Yosĕph had interpreted to them. (Genesis 40:23)  And the chief cupbearer did not remember Yosĕph, but forgot him.
YHWH always reveals what is coming and allows us a means of obedience and escape!
(Amos 2:6)  Thus said יהוה, “For three transgressions of Yisra’ĕl, and for four, I do not turn it back, because they sell the righteous for silver, and the poor for a pair of sandals, (Amos 2:7)  who crush the head of the poor ones in the dust of the earth, and turn aside the way of the meek. And a man and his father go in to the same girl, to defile my set-apart Name. (Amos 2:8)  “And they lie down by every altar on garments taken in pledge, and in the house of their mighty one they drink the wine of those who have been fined. (Amos 2:9)  “Yet I destroyed the Amorites before them, whose height was like the height of the cedars. And he was as strong as the oaks, yet I destroyed his fruit from above and his roots from beneath. (Amos 2:10)  “And I brought you up from the land of Mitsrayim, and led you forty years through the wilderness, to possess the land of the Amorites. (Amos 2:11)  “And I rose up some of your sons as prophets, and some of your young men as Nazirites. Not so? O you children of Yisra’ĕl?” declares יהוה. (Amos 2:12)  “But you made the Nazirites drink wine, and commanded the prophets saying, ‘Do not prophesy!’ (Amos 2:13)  “See, I am weighed down by you, as a wagon is weighed down when filled with sheaves. (Amos 2:14)  “And a place to flee shall perish from the swift, and the strong not strengthen his power, and the mighty not save his life, (Amos 2:15) and he who handles the bow not stand, and the swift of foot not save, nor he who rides a horse save his life, (Amos 2:16) and the bravest among the mighty flee naked, in that day,” declares יהוה. (Amos 3:1)  Hear this word that יהוה has spoken against you, O children of Yisra’ĕl, against the entire clan which I brought up from the land of Mitsrayim, saying, (Amos 3:2) “You alone have I known of all the clans of the earth, therefore I punish you for all your crookednesses.” (Amos 3:3)  Would two walk together, without having met/agreed? (Amos 3:4)  Does a lion roar in the forest, when he has no prey? Does a young lion give forth his voice out of his den unless he has caught? (Amos 3:5)  Does a bird fall into a snare on the earth, where there is no trap for it? Does a snare spring up from the earth, if it has not captured prey? (Amos 3:6)  If a ram’s horn is blown in a city, do the people not tremble? If there is calamity in a city, shall not יהוה have done it? (Amos 3:7)  For the Master יהוה does no matter unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets. (Amos 3:8)  A lion has roared! Who is not afraid? The Master יהוה has spoken! Who would not prophesy?
Yahshua removed our guilt and our filthy garments and gave us robes of righteousness ad by His Spirit- He will deliver us from every affliction and trials IF we seek Him and His ways with all our hearts! Below is our shadow picture:
(Zechariah 3:1)  And he showed me Yehoshua the high priest standing before the messenger (Angel) of יהוה, and Satan standing at his right hand to be an adversary to him. (Zechariah 3:2)  And יהוה said to Satan, “יהוה rebuke you, Satan! יהוה who has chosen Yerushalayim rebuke you! Is this not a brand plucked from the fire?” (Zechariah 3:3)  And Yehoshua was dressed in filthy garments, and was standing before the messenger. (Zechariah 3:4)  And He answered and spoke to those who stood before Him, saying, “Remove the filthy garments from him.” And to him He said, See, I have removed your guilt from you, and shall put costly robes on you.” (Zechariah 3:5)  And I said, “Let them put a clean turban on his head.” Then they put a clean turban on his head, and they put garments on him. And the messenger of יהוה stood by. (Zechariah 3:6)  And the messenger of יהוה witnessed to Yehoshua, saying, (Zechariah 3:7) “Thus said יהוה of hosts, If you walk in my ways, and if you guard my duty, then you shall also rule my house, and also guard my courts. And I shall give you access among these standing here. (Zechariah 3:8)  ‘Now listen, Yehoshua the high priest, you and your companions who sit before you, for they are men of symbol. For look, I am bringing forth My Servant – the Branch1. Footnote: 1 Or Sprout. See Isaiah. 4:2, Isaiah 11:1, Jeremiah 23:5, Jeremiah 33:15, Zechariah. 6:12. (Zechariah 3:9) ‘See the stone which I have put before Yehoshua: on one stone are seven eyes. See, I am engraving its inscription,’ declares יהוה of hosts, ‘and I shall remove the guilt of that land in one day. (Zechariah 3:10)  In that day,(Hebrew idiom for Day of the Lord or Jacob’s Troubles aka the Tribulation and the Day of Vengeance of our Elohim) declares יהוה of hosts, ‘you shall invite one another, under the vine and under the fig tree.’ ” (Zechariah 4:1) and the messenger who was speaking to me came back and woke me up as a man is awakened from sleep. (Zechariah 4:2)  And he said to me, “What do you see?” So I said, “I have looked, and see: a lampstand all of gold with a bowl on top of it and on the stand seven lamps with seven spouts to the seven lamps. (Zechariah 4:3)  “And two olive trees are by it, one at the right of the bowl and the other at its left.” (Zechariah 4:4)  Then I responded and spoke to the messenger who was speaking to me, saying, “What are these, my master?” (Zechariah 4:5)  And the messenger who was speaking to me answered and said to me, “Do you not know what these are?” And I said, “No, my master.” (Zechariah 4:6)  And he answered and said to me, “This is the word of יהוה to Zerubbaḇel, ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ said יהוה of hosts. (Zechariah 4:7)  ‘Who are you, Great Mountain, before Zerubbaḇel? A plain! And he shall bring forth the capstone with shouts of “Favor, favor (Grace- Grace or mercy) to it!” ’ ”
Like Joseph, we too are becoming manifested as the sons of YHWH and will be delivered from all our afflictions- even future scarcity of food and other distresses!
(Acts 7:9) “And the ancestors, becoming jealous, sold Yosĕph into Mitsrayim. But Elohim was with him, (Acts 7:10) and delivered him out of all his afflictions, and gave him favor and wisdom before Pharaoh, sovereign of Mitsrayim. And he appointed him governor over Mitsrayim and his entire house. (Acts 7:11)  “Then a scarcity of food and great distress came over all the land of Mitsrayim and Kena‘an, and our fathers found no food. (Acts 7:12)  “But Yaʽaqoḇ heard that there was grain in Mitsrayim, and he sent out our fathers the first time, (Acts 7:13) and at the second time Yosĕph was made known to his brothers, and Yosĕph’s race became known to the Pharaoh. (Acts 7:14)  “And Yosĕph sent and called his father Yaʽaqoḇ and all his relatives to him, seventy-five people. (Acts 7:15)  “And Yaʽaqoḇ went down to Mitsrayim, and died, he and our fathers, (Acts 7:16)  and they were brought over to Sheḵem and laid in the tomb that Aḇraham bought for a price of silver from the sons of Ḥamor, the father of Sheḵem.
Shalom to your home Loved One- thank you for your wonderful prayers for Billie and me! My prayer and hope is that we will NOW be DETERMINED to fast and pray and OVERCOME our own flesh with worship and decree agreeing with Yahshua’s words; and Rid ourselves of FEAR and UNBELIEF and have victory overcoming prayer on all our prayer fronts! This will glorify our Father in Heaven! We must be overcomers loved ones—and that MUST start with each one of our own hearts- to overcome our flesh man who wants (And often does) rule our hearts! May Yahweh – through His Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) give each power to overcome and a will for victory in this area and DIRECTION of our lives!
Blessings, Thurston
Continued explanation of the Torah Cycle restart at beginning of monthsIt is about YHWH restoring all things which sometimes means we are walking alone. I start over annually when YHWH’s year starts over; this is not to say that I am correct and others are wrong, I just happen to believe we will never challenge our older brother Judah by following his traditions. I expect Judah will be moved by our obedience to His Torah (Words of Scripture) and seeing YHWH’s signs and wonders following our obedience- Does the statement above mean we are not to grab the tzitzit of Yehuda and take hold and learn from them? Of course not, we absolutely should learn of them and from them- just not ingest and keep that which is traditions that go against His words! Especially since we are the ten (Ten scattered northern tribes scattered for Easter and sun god day worship which parallels closely as a pig slop eating prodigal brother)
Let’s look; (Zechariah 8:22) ‘And many peoples and strong nations shall come to seek יהוה of hosts in Yerushalayim, and to pray before יהוה.’ (Zechariah 8:23)  “Thus said יהוה of hosts, ‘In those days (Now? YES and in the future also!) Ten men (10 scattered northern tribes called Ephraim and Israel) from all languages of the nations take hold, yea, they shall take hold of the edge of the garment of a man, a Yehuḏite1, saying, “Let us go with you, for we have heard that Elohim is with you.” ’ ” Footnote: 1John 4:22.
