Shabbat Shalom Loved One!    

YHWH is restoring all things; that includes us who were once DRY BONES! All who KNOW (Not know about) HIM and call on Him will be delivered- HalleluYAH!  
Why are we on a different schedule of the Torah Cycle than the mainstream and the Orthodox? For me it is about restoration of all things- explanation continued at end of this week’s study! Click here for prophecy- chasing the wild goose- and click here for Bobby Conner- Prepare to do exploits!
Today loved ones I am shortening and simplifying the study. We all need to be sober and alert because we are living in the end times and as expected, wickedness abounds. You and I must awaken and do your own studies to arrive to TRUTH so we seek Yahweh NOW while He may be found. Someday darkness will cover the land and gross darkness the people- we must become lights- and even brighter as the darkness gets darker. Listen truth searchers- we know we are the dry bones coming alive. We also know we are the LOST SHEEP Yahshua said He came for, as we were scattered all over the earth for our rebellion against His Torah- Instructions. Our greatest deliverance- which is greater than the exodus from Egypt is ahead of us. He needs to find us repentant from the sins we were scattered to all the countries for. We need to become His FRIENDS, that we may hear directly, be anxious for nothing, follow what He says to us- and DO IT. Here’s why when we have something revealed by Him we must hear, repent and follow Him: (Please note the real exodus is coming- not the shadow picture of the red sea)
Jeremiah 16:14 "Therefore behold, the days are coming," says Yahweh, "that it shall no more be said, Yahweh lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of Egypt,' Jeremiah 16:15 but, Yahweh lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north and from all the lands where He had driven them.' For I will bring them back into their land which I gave to their fathers. Jeremiah 16:16  "Behold, I will send for many fishermen," says Yahweh, "and they shall fish them; and afterward I will 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 areon all their ways; they are not hidden from my face, nor is their iniquity hidden from my eyes. Jeremiah 16:18and first I will repay double for their iniquity and their sin, because they have defiled my land; they have filled my inheritance with the carcasses of their detestable and abominable idols." Jeremiah 16:19  O Yahweh, my strength and my fortress, My refuge in the day of affliction, The Gentiles shall come to You From the ends of the earth and say, "Surely our fathers have inherited lies, Worthlessness and unprofitable things.Jeremiah 16:20Will a man make gods for himself, which are not gods? Jeremiah 16:21 “Therefore behold, I will this once cause them to know, I will cause them to know my hand and my might; and they shall know that my name isYahweh.
I want us to become intimate friends of Yahweh (In addition to being sons and daughters) also loved ones- but to do that we must continually be truth seekers and repentant. We know from the scripture above that we HAVE inherited lies- so we should be sober and alert and become TRUTH SEARCHERS and those who will HEAR AND OBEY Him. Jeremiah told us above, that we have inherited lies- those of us living in the latter days. He shows us above; that our deliverance would overshadow even the deliverance of escaping Egypt.

How do we become “friends” with Yahweh (God) and hear and do what He says? How did Abraham know Yahweh and follow Him? He was seeking; he wanted to know if there was actually a Creator and “real God” among all his earthly father’s pagan man-made idols. He asked and Yahweh answered. It is within us to ASK and SEEK HIM. He obviously became a “friend” of Yahweh as we see in the scripture below that Yahweh would not destroy Sodom without sharing why and counseling with Abraham. 

Genesis 18:17 and יהוה said, “Shall I hide from Abraham what I am doing, Genesis 18:18 since Abraham is certainly going to become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? 

Let’s consider for a moment; how did Noah know what was clean and unclean “food” or animals to load in the Ark prior to Moses receiving the Torah- Instructions from our Heavenly Father? He did his best to DO the instructions/commands from Yahweh he had been passed down from His father and his grandfather- Enoch. And of course- he listened and heard from Yahweh- as He is no respecter of persons- that means you and I can too.

Finally, let’s look at how Peter (Kepha) knew Yahshua (Jesus) was the coming Messiah? Further, I consider the question to each of us- who do YOU say He is?

Matthew 16:13 When Yahshua (Jesus) came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, "Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?" Matthew 16:14 so they said, "Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets." Matthew 16:15 He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" Matthew 16:16 Simon Peter answered and said, "You are the Messiah, the Son of Yahweh; the living Elohim." Matthew 16:17  Yahshua (Jesus) answered and said to him, "Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. Matthew 16:18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my Body (Assembly), and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. Matthew 16:19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven."
My hope is that we can all see from above that spending time and getting to KNOW Messiah Yahshua and our Heavenly Father due to Yahshua’s sacrifice and our repentance from sins and inherited lies; we WILL also have our Father reveal hidden things and be blessed like Peter was! 
The prophets and the ancients sought Him and heard. He changes not, so relationship as sons and daughters and yes FRIENDS of Yahshua and Yahweh is achievable- and even more important- this is what He paid for. He told Jeremiah that He is watching over His Word to perform it- we must conform to His image; His Word. As we seek Him and we will become fuller of Him for He is LIGHT and we too, are to become the LIGHT of this world. Just remember as you search the scriptures, you will gain in relationship to the KNOWING of Him and intimacy IF we seek Him with all our hearts.
(Isaiah 60:1)  “Arise; shine, for your light has come! And the esteem (glory) of יהוה has risen upon you. (Isaiah 60:2) “For look, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness the peoples. But יהוה arises over you, and His esteem (glory) is seen upon you. (Isaiah 60:3)  “And the gentiles shall come to your light 1 and sovereigns to the brightness of your rising. Footnote: Isaiah 60:19, 20, Revelation 21:23, 24 (Isaiah 60:4) “Lift up your eyes all around and see: all of them have gathered, they have come to you; your sons come from afar, and your daughters are supported on the side. (Isaiah 60:5) “Then you shall see and be bright, and your heart shall throb and swell, for the wealth of the sea is turned to you, the riches of the gentiles come to you.

Here are this Week’s Torah Scriptures:  Mattot “Tribes”

Numbers 30:2-32:42; Jeremiah 2:4-28; Philippians 3:12-16, 4:4-8 (Extended)
Let’s be very careful about our vows and agreements…
(Numbers 30:2)  “When a man vows a vow to יהוה, or swears an oath to bind himself by some agreement, he does not break his word; he does according to all that comes out of his mouth(Numbers 30:3)  “Or if a woman vows a vow toיהוה, and binds herself by some agreement while in her father’s house in her youth, (Numbers 30:4) and her father hears her vow and the agreement by which she has bound herself, and her father has kept silent towards her, then all her vows shall stand, and every agreement with which she has bound herself stands. (Numbers 30:5)  “But if her father forbids her on the day that he hears, then none of her vows or her agreements by which she has bound herself stand. And יהוה pardons her, because her father has forbidden her. (Numbers 30:6)  “But if she at all belongs to a husband, while bound by her vows or by a rash utterance from her lips by which she bound herself, (Numbers 30:7) and her husband hears it, and he has kept silent towards her on the day that he hears, then her vows shall stand, and her agreements by which she bound herself do stand. (Numbers 30:8)  “But if her husband forbids her on the day that he hears it, then he has nullified her vow which she vowed, and the rash utterance of her lips by which she bound herself and יהוה pardons her. (Numbers 30:9)  “But any vow of a widow or a divorced woman, by which she has bound herself, stands against her. (Numbers 30:10)  “And if she vowed in her husband’s house, or bound herself by an agreement with an oath, (Numbers 30:11)  and her husband heard it, and has kept silent towards her and did not forbid her, then all her vows shall stand, and every agreement by which she bound herself stands. (Numbers 30:12)  “But if her husband clearly nullified them on the day he heard them, then whatever came from her lips concerning her vows or concerning the agreement binding her, it does not stand – her husband has nullified them and יהוה pardons her. (Numbers 30:13) “Every vow and every binding oath to afflict her being let her husband confirm it, or let her husband nullify it. (Numbers 30:14)  “But if her husband is altogether silent at her from day to day, then he confirms all her vows or all the agreements that bind her – he confirms them, because he kept silent towards her on the day that he heard. (Numbers 30:15)  “But if he nullifies them after he has heard, then he shall bear her crookedness.” (Numbers 30:16)  These are the laws which יהוה commanded Mosheh, between a man and his wife, and between a father and his daughter in her youth in her father’s house.
YHWH takes vengeance on the people of Midian and also repays Balaam son of Beor the prophet for profitwho went and told them how to do evil against the Israelites- have intermarriage and false gods
(Numbers 31:1)  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Numbers 31:2) “Take vengeance for the children of Yisra’ĕl on the Miḏyanites. After that you are to be gathered to your people.” (Numbers 31:3)  And Mosheh spoke to the people, saying, “Arm some of yourselves for the campaign, and let them go against the Miḏyanites to take vengeance for יהוהon Miḏyan. (Numbers 31:4)  “Send a thousand from each tribe of all the tribes of Yisra’ĕl for the campaign.” (Numbers 31:5)  So there were supplied from the tribes of Yisra’ĕl one thousand from each tribe, twelve thousand armed ones for the campaign. (Numbers 31:6)  And Mosheh sent them on the campaign, one thousand from each tribe, them and Pineḥas son of Elʽazar the priest on the campaign, with the set-apart utensils and the trumpets for sounding in his hand.(Numbers 31:7)  And they fought against the Miḏyanites, as יהוה commanded Mosheh, and slew all the males.(Numbers 31:8)  And they slew the sovereigns of Miḏyan with the rest of those who were pierced: Ewi, and Reqem, and Tsur, and Ḥur, and Reḇa, the five sovereigns of Miḏyan. And they slew Bilʽam son of Beʽor with the sword(Numbers 31:9)  And the sons of Yisra’ĕl took all the women of Miḏyan captive, with their little ones, and took as spoil all their livestock, and all their possessions. (Numbers 31:10)  And they burned with fire all the cities where they dwelt, and all their settlements. (Numbers 31:11)  And they took all the spoil and all the booty, both of man and beast.(Numbers 31:12)  And they brought the captives, and the booty, and the spoil to Mosheh, and to Elʽazar the priest, and to the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl, to the camp in the desert plains of Mo’aḇ by the Yardĕn of Yeriḥo.(Numbers 31:13) And Mosheh, and Elʽazar the priest, and all the leaders of the congregation, went to meet them outside the camp. (Numbers 31:14)  But Mosheh was wroth with the officers of the army, with the commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds, who had come from the campaign. (Numbers 31:15)  And Mosheh said to them, “Have you kept all the women alive(Numbers 31:16)  “Look, they are the ones who caused the children of Yisra’ĕl, through the word of Bilʽam, to trespass against יהוה in the matter of Peʽor, and there was a plague among the congregation of יהוה(Numbers 31:17)  “And now, slay every male among the little ones. And every woman who has known a man by laying with a man you shall slay. (Numbers 31:18)  “But keep alive for yourselves all the female children who have not known a man by lying with a man. (Numbers 31:19)  “And you, camp outside the camp seven days. Whoever has slain any being, and whoever has touched any slain, cleanse yourselves and your captives on the third day and on the seventh day. (Numbers 31:20)  “And cleanse every garment, and every object of leather and all the work of goats’ hair, and every object of wood.” (Numbers 31:21)  And Elʽazar the priest said to the men of the campaign who went to the battle, “This is the law of the Torah which יהוה commanded Mosheh: (Numbers 31:22) “Only the gold, and the silver, the bronze, the iron, the tin, and the lead, (Numbers 31:23) every object that passes through fire, you put through the fire, and it shall be clean; only, let it be cleansed with the water for uncleanness. And whatever does not pass through fire you pass through water. (Numbers 31:24)  “And you shall wash your garments on the seventh day and be clean and afterwards come into the camp.” (Numbers 31:25)  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, (Numbers 31:26) “Count up the plunder that was taken, of man and of beast, you and Elʽazar the priest and the heads of the fathers of the congregation. (Numbers 31:27)  “And you shall divide the plunder into two parts, between those who took part in the battle, who went out on the campaign, and the entire congregation. (Numbers 31:28)  “And set aside a levy for יהוה on the men of battle who went out on the campaign: one out of every five hundred, of man, and of the cattle, and of the donkeys, and of the sheep. (Numbers 31:29)  “Take it from their half, and give it to Elʽazar the priest as a contribution to יהוה(Numbers 31:30)  “And from the children of Yisra’ĕl’s half you shall take one of every fifty, of man, of the cattle, of the donkeys, and of the sheep, of all the livestock, and give them to the Lĕwites guarding the duty of the Dwelling Place of יהוה.” (Numbers 31:31)  And Mosheh and Elʽazar the priest did as יהוה commanded Mosheh. (Numbers 31:32)  And the booty remaining from the plunder, which the people of the campaign had taken, was six hundred and seventy-five thousand sheep, (Numbers 31:33)  and seventy-two thousand cattle, (Numbers 31:34)  and sixty-one thousand donkeys, (Numbers 31:35)  and thirty-two thousand human beings in all, of women who had not known a man by lying with a man. (Numbers 31:36)  And the half, the portion for those who went out on the campaign, was in number three hundred and thirty-seven thousand five hundred sheep, (Numbers 31:37) and the levy unto יהוה of the sheep was six hundred and seventy-five. (Numbers 31:38)  And the cattle were thirty-six thousand, of which the levy unto יהוה was seventy-two. (Numbers 31:39)  And the donkeys were thirty thousand five hundred, of which the levy unto יהוה was sixty-one. (Numbers 31:40)  And the human beings were sixteen thousand, of which the levy unto יהוה was thirty-two beings. (Numbers 31:41)  So Mosheh gave the levy which was the contribution unto יהוה to Elʽazar the priest, as יהוה commanded Mosheh. (Numbers 31:42)  And from the children of Yisra’ĕl’s half, which Mosheh divided from the men who campaigned: (Numbers 31:43)  now the half belonging to the congregation was three hundred and thirty-seven thousand five hundred sheep, (Numbers 31:44)  and thirty-six thousand cattle, (Numbers 31:45)  and thirty thousand five hundred donkeys, (Numbers 31:46)  and sixteen thousand human beings. (Numbers 31:47)  Then Mosheh took from the children of Yisra’ĕl’s half: one out of every fifty, drawn from man and beast, and gave them to the Lĕwites, who guarded the duty of the Dwelling Place of יהוה, asיהוה commanded Mosheh. (Numbers 31:48)  And the officers who were over thousands of the campaign, the commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds, came near to Mosheh, (Numbers 31:49)  and they said to Mosheh, “Your servants have taken a count of the fighting men under our command, and not a man of us is missing.(Numbers 31:50)  “So we have brought an offering for יהוה, what every man found of ornaments of gold: armlets and bracelets and signet rings and earrings and necklaces, to make atonement for ourselves before יהוה.” (Numbers 31:51) And Mosheh and Elʽazar the priest received the gold from them, all the fashioned ornaments. (Numbers 31:52)  And all the gold of the offering that they presented to יהוה, from the commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds, was sixteen thousand seven hundred and fifty sheqels. (Numbers 31:53)  The men of the campaign had taken spoil, every man for himself. (Numbers 31:54)  And Mosheh and Elʽazar the priest received the gold from the commanders of thousands and of hundreds, and brought it into the Tent of Meeting as a remembrance for the children of Yisra’ĕl before יהוה.
TAKING THE PROMISE LAND- Lesson- if we sin against YHWH our sin will always find us out- receiving His promises as we decree and do
(Numbers 32:1)  And the children of Re’uḇĕn and the children of Gaḏ had much livestock, a large number. And they saw the land of Yaʽzĕr and the land of Gilʽaḏ and saw that the place was a place for livestock. (Numbers 32:2)  So the children of Gaḏ and the children of Re’uḇĕn came and spoke to Mosheh, and to Elʽazar the priest, and to the leaders of the congregation, saying, (Numbers 32:3)  “Ataroth, and Diḇon, and Yaʽzĕr, and Nimrah, and Ḥeshbon, and Elʽalĕh, and Seḇam, and Neḇo, and Beʽon, (Numbers 32:4)  the land which יהוה had smitten before the congregation of Yisra’ĕl, is a land for livestock, and your servants have livestock.” (Numbers 32:5)  And they said, “If we have found favor in your eyes, let this land be given to your servants as a possession, and do not let us pass over the Yardĕn.” (Numbers 32:6)  And Mosheh said to the children of Gaḏ and to the children of Re’uḇĕn, “Are your brothers to go into the battle while you yourselves sit here? (Numbers 32:7)  “Now why do you discourage the heart of the children of Yisra’ĕl from passing over into the land which יהוה has given them? (Numbers 32:8)  “Thus your fathers did when I sent them away from Qaḏĕsh Barnĕa to see the land. (Numbers 32:9)  “For when they went up to the wadi Eshkol and saw the land, they discouraged the heart of the children of Yisra’ĕl, so that they did not go into the land which יהוה had given them.(Numbers 32:10)  “Then the displeasure of יהוה burned on that day, and He swore an oath, saying, (Numbers 32:11) ‘Not one of the men who came up from Mitsrayim, from twenty years old and above, is to see the land of which I swore to Aḇraham, Yitsḥaq, and Yaʽaqoḇ, because they did not follow Me completely, (Numbers 32:12)  except Kalĕḇ son of Yephunneh, the Qenizzite, and Yehoshua son of Nun, for they have followed יהוה completely.’ (Numbers 32:13)  “So the displeasure of יהוה burned against Yisra’ĕl, and He made them wander in the wilderness forty years, until all the generation that had done evil in the eyes of יהוה was destroyed. (Numbers 32:14)  “And see, you have risen in your father’s place, an increase of men, sinners, to add still more the burning displeasure of יהוה against Yisra’ĕl.(Numbers 32:15)  “For if you turn away from following Him, He shall once again leave them in the wilderness, and you shall destroy all these people.” (Numbers 32:16)  Then they came near to him and said, “Let us build sheep-enclosures here for our livestock, and cities for our little ones, (Numbers 32:17)  but let us ourselves be armed, hastening before the children of Yisra’ĕl until we have brought them to their place. And our little ones shall dwell in the walled cities because of the inhabitants of the land. (Numbers 32:18)  “We shall not return to our homes until every one of the children of Yisra’ĕl has received his inheritance. (Numbers 32:19)  “For we shall not inherit with them on the other side of the Yardĕn and beyond, because our inheritance has fallen to us on this eastern side of the Yardĕn.”(Numbers 32:20)  And Mosheh said to them, “If you make this promise: if you arm yourselves before יהוה for battle,(Numbers 32:21) and all your armed ones pass over the Yardĕn before יהוה until He has driven out His enemies from before Him, (Numbers 32:22) and the land has been subdued before יהוה, then afterward you shall return, and be guiltless before יהוה and before Yisra’ĕl. And this land shall be your possession before יהוה(Numbers 32:23)  But if you do not do so, then see, you shall sin against יהוה, and know: your sin is going to find you out. (Numbers 32:23)  “Build cities for your little ones and enclosures for your sheep, and do what you have promised.” (Numbers 32:25)  And the children of Gaḏ and the children of Re’uḇĕn spoke to Mosheh, saying, “Your servants are going to do as my master commands. (Numbers 32:26)  “Our little ones, our wives, our flocks, and all our livestock are going to be there in the cities of Gilʽaḏ, (Numbers 32:27)  but your servants are passing over, every armed one of the army, beforeיהוה, to battle, as my master says.” (Numbers 32:28)  And Mosheh gave command concerning them to Elʽazar the priest, to Yehoshua son of Nun, and to the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Yisra’ĕl. (Numbers 32:29)  And Mosheh said to them, “If the children of Gaḏ and the children of Re’uḇĕn pass over the Yardĕn with you, every man armed for battle before יהוה, and the land has been subdued before you, then you shall give them the land of Gilʽaḏ as a possession. (Numbers 32:30)  “But if they do not pass over armed with you, they shall have possessions among you in the land of Kenaʽan.” (Numbers 32:31)  Then the children of Gaḏ and the children of Re’uḇĕn answered, saying, “As יהוה has said to your servants, so we do. (Numbers 32:32)  “We ourselves are passing over armed beforeיהוה into the land of Kenaʽan, but the possession of our inheritance remains with us beyond the Yardĕn.” (Numbers 32:33)  So Mosheh gave to the children of Gaḏ, to the children of Re’uḇĕn, and to half the tribe of Menashsheh, son of Yosĕph, the reign of Siḥon sovereign of the Amorites and the reign of Oḡ sovereign of Bashan, the land with its cities within the borders, the cities of the land round about. (Numbers 32:34)  And the children of Gaḏ built Diḇon and Ataroth and Aroʽĕr, (Numbers 32:35) and Atroth, Shophan and Yaʽzĕr and Yoḡbehah, (Numbers 32:36) and Bĕyth Nimrah and Bĕyth Haran, walled cities, and enclosures for sheep. (Numbers 32:37)  And the children of Re’uḇĕn built Ḥeshbon and Elʽalĕh and Qiryathayim, (Numbers 32:38) Neḇo and Baʽal Meʽon – the names being changed – and Shiḇmah. And they gave other names to the cities which they built. (Numbers 32:39)  And the sons of Maḵir son of Menashsheh went to Gilʽaḏ and took it, and dispossessed the Amorites who were in it. (Numbers 32:40)  So Mosheh gave Gilʽaḏ to Maḵir, son of Menashsheh, and he dwelt in it. (Numbers 32:41)  And Ya’ir son of Menashsheh went and took its small towns, and called them Ḥawoth Ya’ir. (Numbers 32:42)  And Noḇaḥ went and took Qenath and its villages, and he called it Noḇaḥ, after his own name.
(Jeremiah 2:4)  Hear the word of יהוה, O house of Yaʽaqoḇ and all the clans of the house of Yisra’ĕl(Jeremiah 2:5) Thus said יהוה, “What unrighteousness have your fathers found in me, that they have gone far from me, and went after worthlessness, and became worthless? (Jeremiah 2:6)  “And did not they say, ‘Where is יהוה, who brought us up out of the land of Mitsrayim, who led us through the wilderness, through a land of deserts and pits, through a land of drought and the shadow of death, a land that no one passed through and where no one dwelt?’ (Jeremiah 2:7)  “Then I brought you into a garden land, to eat its fruit and its goodness. But when you entered, you defiled my land and made my inheritance an abomination. (Jeremiah 2:8)  “The priests did not say, ‘Where is יהוה?’ And those who handle the Torah did not know me, and the shepherds 1 transgressed against me, and the prophets prophesied by Baʽal (for self-profit), and walked after matters that did not profit. Footnote: 1See 10:2112:10-11, 50:6-7. (Jeremiah 2:9) “Therefore I still contend with you,” declares יהוה, “and with your children’s children I contend. Jeremiah 2:10) “Pass beyond the isles of Kittim and see; and send to Qĕḏar and observe well, and see if there has been any like this. (Jeremiah 2:11)  “Has a nation changed its mighty ones, which are not mighty ones? But my people have changed my esteem(glory) for that which does not profitFootnote: 1Symbolic name for His Ark. (Jeremiah 2:12) “Be amazed, O heavens, at this, and be frightened, be utterly dried up,” declares יהוה(Jeremiah 2:13)  My people have done two evils: they have forsaken me, the fountain of living waters 1, to hew out for themselves cisterns, cracked cisterns, which do not hold waterFootnote: 1See 17:13(Jeremiah 2:14)  “Is Yisra’ĕl a servant? Was he born in the house? Why is he given to plunder? (Jeremiah 2:15)  “The young lions roared at him, they growled, and made his land waste; his cities have been burned, without inhabitant. (Jeremiah 2:16)  “Even the sons of Noph and of Taḥpanḥes have shaven the crown of your head. (Jeremiah 2:17)  “Have you not done this to yourself, by forsaking יהוה your Elohim when He led you in the way(Jeremiah 2:18)  “And now why take the way to Mitsrayim, to drink the waters of Shiḥor? Or why take the way to Ashshur, to drink the waters of the River? (Jeremiah 2:19)  “Your own evil instructs you, and your backsliding reprove you. Know therefore and see that it is evil and bitter that you have forsaken יהוה your Elohim, and that my fear is not in you,” declares the Master יהוה of hosts. (Jeremiah 2:20)  “For of old you have broken your yoke and tore of your bonds. And you said, ‘I am not serving you,’ when on every high hill and under every green tree you lay down, a whore. (Jeremiah 2:21)  “Yet I had planted you a choice vine, all of it a true seed. How then have you turned before me into the degenerate plant of a strange vine? (Jeremiah 2:22)  “Although you wash yourself with lye, and use much soap, yet your crookedness is ingrained before me,” declares the Master יהוה(Jeremiah 2:23)  “How do you say, ‘I am not defiled, I have not gone after the Baʽals’? See your way in the valley, know what you have done: a swift dromedary breaking loose in her ways, (Jeremiah 2:24)  a wild donkey used to the wilderness, sniffing the wind in the desire of her being – in her time of mating, who turns her away? All those who seek her need not weary themselves; in her month they find her. (Jeremiah 2:25)  “Keep your foot from being bare, and your throat from thirst. But you said, ‘It is useless, because I love strangers, and after them I go.’ (Jeremiah 2:26)  “As the thief is ashamed when he is found out, so is the house of Yisra’ĕl ashamed – they and their sovereigns and their heads, and their priests and their prophets, (Jeremiah 2:27) saying to a tree, ‘You are my father,’ and to a stone, ‘You gave birth to me.’ For they have turned their back to me, and not their face. But in the time of their calamity they say, ‘Arise and save us.’(Jeremiah 2:28) “But where are your mighty ones that you have made for yourselves? Let them arise; see if they save you in the time of your calamity. Because your mighty ones have become as many as your cities, O Yehuḏah.
Pressing on- as none of us have arrived
(Philippians 3:12)  Not that I have already received, or already been perfected, but I press on, to lay hold of that for which Messiah יהושע has also laid hold of me(Philippians 3:13)  Brothers, I do not count myself to have laid hold of it yet, but only this: forgetting what is behind and reaching out for what lies ahead(Philippians 3:14) I press on toward the goal for the prize of the high calling of Elohim in Messiah יהושע(Philippians 3:15)  As many, then, as are perfect (mature), should have this mind. And if you think differently in any respect, Elohim shall also reveal this to you. (Philippians 3:16)  But to what we have already attained – walk by the same rule, be of the same mind.
Count your blessings and REJOICE! Fear not and worry not! YHWH is on His throne laughing at and holding evil leaders in derision- think on what He promises and good reports!
(Philippians 4:4)  Rejoice in יהוה always, again I say, rejoice! (Philippians 4:5)  Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Master is near. (Philippians 4:6)  Do not worry (be anxious) at all, but in every matter, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to Elohim. (Philippians 4:7)  And the peace of Elohim, which surpasses all understanding, shall guard your hearts and minds through Messiah יהושע(Philippians 4:8)  For the rest, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is righteous, whatever is clean, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good report, if there is any uprightness and if there is any praise – think on these.
Loved One, you know that as you press in for others, Yahshua presses in for you and your loved ones! Thanks you for your heart felt prayers of BELIEF and TRUST! Let’s USE our authority! (Luke 10:18)  And He said to them, “I saw Satan falling out of the heaven as lightning. (Luke 10:19)  “See, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and none at all shall hurt you. (Luke 10:20)  “But do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names have been written in the heavens.”
Truth Seekers, we have studied and reviewed much about the coming darkness and fiery trials we can expect. Remember that we are children of LIGHT and we will not be surprise nor will we be full of anxiety as we draw near to our King and become Yahweh’s Treasure.  Also remember the Scriptures declare this next Exodus will be a far greater deliverance than even Moses and Israel crossing the Red Sea. Let our words agree with Yahshua on all matters and be likened to the 2 spies with the good report and not the 10 agreeing with the facts. We are to be aware of hasatan’s devices- NOT AGREE WITH THEM! Thank you for your prayers and intercession for Billie and me! 
Shalom to your home,
Continued explanation of our Torah Cycle restart at beginning of months… 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, aYehuḏite1, saying, “Let us go with you, for we have heard that Elohim is with you.” ’ ” Footnote: John 4:22.
